Well i just built it a week ago. I forgot to tell you guys.

Processor: 1.4_ ghz Processor
MotherBoard: SiS ___ Mobo ATX
Ram: 2gb's PC__00 DDR-SDRAM
Hard Disk: 40gb IBM __GXP
Video Card: ATi Radoen _500 64mb DDR
Sound Card: Sound Blaster _____ X-GAMER

Lets play fair now.

Nice Nvidia and ATi users get a Cookie.... :smile: Yummy :smile:

Rcf, did you get an athlon??

Good choice.

If you didnt and you bought a 1.4ghz p4....

LOL.

well if you post sometime soon talking about a fried cpu, then we will know what you bought, lol.

btw what about your power supply?

Intel, your decent into full trolldom, as opposed to a half assed attempt to gain some credibility, is going rather well. Keep up the good work little troll.

Which SiS? The ECS one?
December 25, 2001 10:43:14 AM

i have the same HD

it work fine, fast & highly quiet

but i heard it can burn in the first few months

i know there was (some/many ?) ibm returns

what do you think about ?

It IS an AMD. As they do run hotter, AMD's are for more experienced users that know how to properly cool a cpu. Nothing against p4's, But it's AMD for me.

merry xmas and a happy new year

btw I never mentioned amd in my post, I guesse you guys just associate it with problems

Who said anything about AMD? We know you are a troll so we usually associate your posts with trolling, and this was obivously trolling.

I don;t think it is the SIS 735, to my knowledge all have only 3 dimm sockets making 2 gb of ram highly unlikely.

I am thinking it is a p4 1.4 gig
Sis 645 chipset
pc 2400 DDR
60 gxp ( should have went with maxtor here)
8500 or 7500 who knows
audigy

Another Cookie? Who is going to pay my dentist bill?

OK, clearing up the ibm murk.


The 75gxp has many reliability issues, there is a class action lawsuit about it, i myself have 2 dead ones awaiting rma.

The 60 gxp is faster, and has no reliability concerns, and it is one of the fastest harddrives available today.

Any more questions?

Amds dont run hotter than p4's kelledin has all the technical papers to prove it from amd and intels sites.

This is another myth per5petuated by intel trolls and amd overclockers.

The cold truth is, if you do not overclock the stock heatsink works great!

I think you just made Fugger,Meltdown,Intel_Inside, and Juin cry.
This m/b is not that ECS that everybody has been complaining about though is it? Or is it the only SiS 735 out there?

lol what a dumb, ignorant thing to say

Holy sh!t Rcf bought an amd.....the end of the world is coming.


Intel inside, your post was a troll post, dont try and get off by using amd mas forgiving nature to make yourself feel better.

"when he comes and tells us about his fried cpu, we will know which one he bought"

If you think that statement wasnt trolling you need to be shot.

Run along little one, back under the bridge.

The only reason was because northwood wasnt going to have Hyper Threading on it. I'm aiming at getting the sucessor of Northwood as my next chip.

Heh, i know something secret about hyperthreading.


My wifes cousin, works for intel. He either heads or is high up on the food chain, of a group which optimises code for the p4 and some ia64. On christmas he came to visit the family and we got into a nice conversation about hyperthreading, and he told me that performance gains vary, and the MAIN factor is cache hits/misses heh.

Apparently if an application has no cache misses, then the hyperthreading does NOTHING! It only works on cache misses!!!

So a well coded application will not take much advantage from jackson/hyperthreading, and only apps with alot of misprediction/cachemisses will see any benifit!!!

He also told me from 10-15% performance benifit on average, and 50% benifits are much rarer than everyone thinks.

Interesting, but don't forget that many apps nowadays are unoptimized.

Thats what I told him, that intel is trying desperatly to get people to optimise apps, and wouldnt that negate the benifit of hyperthreading. But his grandma interrupted the convo and dinner was served.

He said however when I asked incrediously about the cache miss thing "yeah if you really want to get the most out of hyperthreading disable the l3 cache" and he laughed.

Software engineers are strange.

hey thats some what good then. Promised 100% max all the time. Good for the server market you can say.

L3 cache?it makes no sance..

I asked him if the hyperthreading would make up for a cache miss and he said no.

Im guessing it doesn't do much besides make up for lost power in the event of a cache miss, I should go to more family functions and grill him.

Hmm,hyperthreading still sounds like an interesting technology for some purposes.

That's very good knowledge to have before hand when upgrading...heh heh

What did this guy say about AMD, bad, good, anything ? lol

ALSO Mat, Please, tell me/us/everyone AS MUCH as you can recall about what he said thats going top be happening in the next whiel with there technology....

He optomises code, we talked about what I told you about, and he also mentioned that cpu level optimisations are starting to lose value, as software will be run on a middle level language, and future apps wont know anything about the hardware. We didnt have much time to talk though.(he said it would probably be .net however, cause M$ is pushing it very hard)
