I Hate The Internets

Posted by Mooney , 23 August 2006 · 685 views

They are evil. All of them. Especially mine, AT&T Yahoo! DSL. It sucks monkey gonads. :naughty: After AT&T bought SBC, my internet connection randomly dropped, tech support was as helpful as a cage of dead squirrels ("Duuuhh... reboot?"), Firefox started glitchen' out :roll1:, and I'm trying to convince my parents to get Road Runner Cable internet. I am THIS close { } to convincing them. Wish me luck with that...
Anyway, on a lighter side, I have decided to build my own PC. I'll give you a peek at some of the specs I've decided on:
- ATI Radeon X1600 (PCI-E, 512MB) ~ $150 (Or less)
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (2000Mhz FSB, 1MB Cache, Socket AM2, Dual Core) ~ $200 (Or less)
- 2GB PC4200 DDR2 SDRAM (533Mhz) ~ $160 (Or less)
- Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard ~ $100 (Or less)
I've got my eye on a DFI mobo as well... :o
So yeah... Hopefully my getting Opera will help my 3vil experiences online... *crosses fingers*
Peace out! :roll1:

*EDIT* - Well, Opera officially is my favorite browser: I tried posting this blog SIX times on firefox... to no avail. Opera: got it on the first trial.




Paying 100 bucks for a keyboard is not worth it.Maximum for me is 50$and that's still pushing it. (but that eclipse keyboard is nice)

The 4200+ doesn't have a 1MB cache, only 512k. However, the 4400+ does have 1MB cache, so you may want to go with that instead.

You sure? :P I got those specs from here: http://www.tigerdirect.com/P.S.It's the socket AM2 version, not the 939.

Weird...either Tiger Direct has a special version of the processor or that's a typo.Here's the specs on NewEgg -> http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103747

Well it does say "2 x 512KB L2 Cache," so I assume that means it has 2 512KB caches which total 1MB... :naughty:

Yes, but that means each process has 512kb cache. If you say 1MB, then that means 1MB each processor. You're really not supposed to add them up, but that's maybe what TigerDirect intended. :naughty:
