Important Specs In A Computer For Gaming

What are the most important specs in a computer for gaming. ? I read an article written in 2003 that ram and video card are the most important. Now that computer games are so much more advanced it would be awesome if someone could give me a ranking of component importance to help me decide what things to add to a new computer.

Specs For Computer To Use For Long Hours

What kind of specs must be needed for long hours use of computer?

Answer:- what will you be using the computer for? I don't think you need any special specs to use a computer for a long period of time, but again, it depends totally on what you will be doing. Will you be making and editing videos? You'll need higher specs for this. If you are going to be typing on a word processor, specs won't matter as much. It all depends on what you will be using it for, but i don't think you need super-charged specs to run your computer for a long time. You will need a cooling system, but the fan that your computer comes with should be fine. Unless you are going to be running a lot of processes at the same time, you shouldn't need a liquid cooling system.

How To Find Out Maximum Ram Capacity For Computer ?

I'm trying to add a little memory to my in-laws computer. It's an intel board, model d845glly. It's got two slots, 133mhz fsb. I would post a link to intel's page on the board, but apparently i'm too new of a member. So if you go to, slash support, slash motherboards, slash desktop, slash d845glly slash sb, slash cs-012825.htm, you can see it ;-). On their info page it states that the maximum memory capacity is 2gb, which is what i'd like to stick in it. But on the chart on the same page, it lists 512mb as the maximum capacity per slot, and there are only two slots. Alternatively, i went to crucial's site, and did their evaluation, and it says the same thing. It states that the board can take 2gb of memory, but each slot can only hold 512mb. So what's the deal? Can i put a 1gb stick in each slot, or am i stuck with only being able to put 1gb total in it? It needs more memory desperately, currently it has 256mb total. Or do you think that 2gb of ram would be overkill on this system? It's got a 1. 7ghz celeron in it, so would there be much of a noticeable difference from 1gb to 2gb? Maybe i shouldn't bother trying to get 2gb in there?

Computer Wont Boot / No Longer Find Hard Drives

Ok i've totally ruined my computer, messing about with it trying to get the internet to work better on it i decided to format the hard drives and install windows from scratch. Done this before in the office at work and it was simple enough. Anyways i did it and now when my computer boots it says it can no longer find my hard drives, so cant install windows or do anything. It just keeps going round in circles and every time ends up at the same point saying windows cant find any hard drives to install to and restarts. Anyone know what i can do?

Dell Studio 15 Max Specs

I am buying a new laptop(bye-bye old dell inspiron) and have decide to buy a new dell studio 1558. I was on the customization screen when i decide to ask what ''would be good for me?. It might help figure out what hardware to get if i told you what i do on my pc. I do everything from average web surfing like facebook or youtube, typing documents, editing video. Online game-playing, play games like gta4, cod mw and mw2, and recording music. I can put all of the programs that i want on this, but the games and stuff need the hardware to play. This is where everyone on yahoo answers comes in.

Video Card Specs: Stream Processors

I was wondering, what stream processors are in reference to a video card? I was looking at a geforce 8800gts and geforce 9600gt. The 8800gts says it has 128 stream processors, while the 9600gt has 64. Outside of that, the 8800 has slightly better specs than the 9600, which boggles me, but whatever. Anyway, what are the stream processors and why does it make such a big difference in price on a video card? (Outside of the obvious 'bigger number = better' way of thinking)

I am not looking for the 'textbook' definition of what it is, but rather your experiences in using them, and if they are worth the big jump in price. Can you tell a difference, that kind of thing, i've already looked up what it is by definition, but that doesn't really tell me what i want to know.

Output Specs For Graphics For Film Media

What are the output specs for graphics for film media? I'm a print designer by trade, but a client of mine was inquiring as to how to produce graphics for film that stay crisp when they are blown up on a big screen. As far as i could gather would be to output in either tiff or targa format, but i know print dpi isn't relevant when it comes to film. So my question is, what should the specs be for output (size, format, resolution)? The film format is 720 native progressive pro hd.

Hardware Specs To Run Flash Website

How much bandwidth and hardware specs do i need to run this kind of website? I don't have a server admin or anyone working with me yet, but i do have a business loan and extra money stored away to start this. But the first thing i'm trying to find out is how much bandwidth/month i would need and a "guess" at the hardware i suppose lol. What i'm trying to run is a flash website, within the site around 500ish active all the time cameras, similar to justin tv, or livestream. In that the video will go to the servers based on person with the camaras upstream, and the servers will send the stream to all of the free users lag free (lets estimate 25 free users in each room). Assuming 500 cams 24/7 upstreaming to server, 25000 free users 24/7 downstreaming from server, and whatever load it takes to keep things lag free. What kind of bandwidth would be your best guess at keeping things lag free for this? If you could take a guess at the hardware required, that would help too :)

How To Find Router Password?

Answer:- assuming you mean the network encryption key needed to use the network rather than the password needed to log into the router's administration pages, if it isn't on a label on your modem or router, the likeliest place to find it is in those admin pages. Exactly where in those pages varies from brand to brand. If you don't have a router, the following should apply to your modem itself. Basically, to get into the admin pages, do this:

1. On a computer connected to a wired port on your router (wireless access to the admin pages should be turned off as a security risk), enter the router's local ip address in your browser's address window. 2. Poke around, especially under wireless security, until you find the encryption key.copy it down exactly.copy-and-pasting it into a text file (wordpad is generally best because it's on almost all windows machines) is even better, as it can be copy-and-pasted from there into whatever needs it. When you see it, you'll understand why this is a good idea. To find your routers ip address in windows:

4. Click on the start->run button. 5. In the text box, type


And press enter. 6. A black "dos box" will pop up. In it, enter

Ipconfig /all

A bunch of gibberish will fill the box. Next to "default gateway" an ip address will appear. This is your router's ip address.

Where To Find Server Technicians?

I am a recruiter at a staffing agency - and i'm pretty new. Knowing that yahoo! Answers is a pretty valuable resource, i was hoping someone here could help me out in searching to fill a server technician position. I'm looking for people with a+, server+, oem certifications, and blade experience. I've posted a few ads and i've run database searches for resumes but have found few people with the experience i need (the certifications above plus 7 years minimum experience). We need them to work on servers such as dell poweredge rack mount servers and hp proliant rack mount and blade servers. I am particularly looking for people in the delaware area - so if anyone knows of any place these guys meet up online (such as organizations) in that area, it would be very helpful!

Or is there any good resource out there, where a lot of these people could see my ads?

I'm doing my research on this job, but i thought one of you might be able to help me too!

How To Find What Driver For Ethernet Connection ?

How do i find out what driver i need for my ethernet connection?


If you have windows 7, you can go to start. Then search for "device manager". From there, check to see if there are any yellow triangles. If any are the network card (ethernet/nic) then right-click and hit "update" and tell windows to search online for it. You can also go to your computer manufacturer's site and look up your model as they should have a copy of the original drivers that came with your computer. If this was installed for you and is not original, its a little more complicated, you can try the windows part in the first paragraph but if it doesn't, feel free to msg me and i can explain how to go about it.

How To Find Out If Ram Is Running On Dual Channel ?

I'm having a problem finding out whether i'm running on dual channel or not. I have two exactly the same kingston's pc2-8500 1gb ram. I placed both in the ram slots with a red color like it says in the manual. But when i open cpu-z, i can't find anything confirming whether i'm running dual channel or not. I really want to find out, because if it's not enabled i might have to enable it through my bios. The tab in cpu-z called "memory" has everything grayed out except the "size" window which says "2048 mbytes"
