    And what the heck is a DVI cable? It says that it needs it for a particular monitor, but what is it?
    Here are the rules, you must obey them or the gender bender will get you.

    And if you ever think of posting without code-tags, the evil monkey will come after you.

    In that case, pack your bags and move on over to Regensburg. Some of the girls here are spectacular.

    Speaking of which. I'm thinking of buying a new computer soon. Do you think that a 300W power supply is sufficient for a computer with a 128Mb NVIDIA card?

    Here's the link to my, hopefully, future machine...

    Meh I guess. This may come as a surprise but I loath hardware I am not the right person to ask this question

    hmm lets see I guess I'm getting use to the laptop. I prefer the desktop PC's though because they are easier to upgrade. But like I said I'm not a hardware nut. My buddy use to take care of all that stuff, but alas he moved several thousand miles away. Anyways he was the hardware geek, and he would every year and 1/2 go out and slap a machine together for me. So I haven't really shopped/bought on since the mid 90's.

    Right now what is functioanl is lets see: a dell laptop (mid-high end) a dell desktop (high-end) and a mid-level no-name pc that I use for development test/play purposes.

    I mainly just use PC's to play games surf or write code....home pc's are the game playing ones. work pc's all that is needed is a large/fast harddrive and lots o ram. But I'm sure there are plenty of super geeks that have their machines tricked out more than I do

    Got plenty of various hardware parts in boxes from over the years...really should get rid of that stuff...

    But remember that I'm older than you I remember what it's like to be young and poor

    But here is something for you...I remember spending 1200.00 bucks just for a hard drive exapnsion kit back in like the 80's or early 90's for my amiga 2000.

    It had an extra 2 meg on board and a 52 meg harddrive...cost almost as much as the amiga 2000 did Just so I could play my games without switching the floppies

    /Sigh wish the amiga had taken off more in the markets more.

    I looked at Dell, but those guys seem to be quite a bit in bed with ATI radeon, I wanted an NVIDIA. I plan to install Linux (gentoo) on my machine at some point, most likely soon and I heard that NVIDIA works with the installation fewest problems. That and from what I've heard, Dell laptops have quite a bit of problems when it comes to quality.

    I want to get a Gateway, but I don't know if a 300 W power supply would be sufficient for the below computer. That's what's bugging me for some time.

    And from what I've heard, if the power source sucks, you're pretty much, uhh... fudged for the long run.

    Never had a problem with a dell..ok scratch that, OLDER dells (talking the 90's) motherboards use to go out all the time. Compaq use to fark up all the time and have memory that wasn't compatable...I have seen people buy gateways and have all sorts of problems. Me...I have no problem with dells these days so I would probably buy from them.

    You know..you can make your own system cheaper...like I said I'm not a hardware geek, but my buddy use to make systems that smoked for dirt cheap.

    I probably would have put the darn thing together had I had 1 month of "free time" (odd phrase isn't it ?) Unfortunately, since I come back from Socialisti... err... Germany I have to go back to college in less than 10 days. So I have to get my little grubby hands on whatever I can. I guess I'll keep looking at the dell and phantasizing...

    // Wooohooo... Olsen Twins !!! :barf:
