  1. Thanks Gosh! Links for people who may not have access to a Technet/MSDN subscription Microsoft Office Professional Plus Beta Microsoft Project Professional 2010 Beta Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Beta Microsoft Visio Premium 2010 Beta Interesting enough it gives you a MAK product key. EDIT: It seems the 64-bit download for the main Office suite is corrupt (32-bit works fine).
  2. Hi Guys, I wondered if you could help me? I recently purchased an external SATA RAID enclosure (StarTech S352U2RER) for keeping a duplicate copy of my most important data/backups. Now that I've purchased the enclosure, I am looking into what would be the most suitable hard drive. I'm currently considering between the WD GP/Black/RAID Edition drives. I have also read that some people are using the WD Blue range for RAID arrays as well. Ideally I want to purchase two 1TB drives as I'm sure this will cover me at least until the time comes to replace them. My main question is, how many people here use either the WD Green/Blue/Black drives for RAID? (obviously nothing mission critical) and do you/have you had any problems? I was considering using either RAID 1 or one of the other hybrid RAID modes (SAFE 33/50) or perhaps even JBOD. I've read a lot about using consumer hard drives for RAID and have seen a lot of conflicting reports, so I would appreciate it if anyone is able to give me the benefit of their experience or be able to provide me with some suggestions. Below are some of the prices I've managed to find so far... WD Caviar Green GP 1TB (WD10EADS) €70 WD Caviar Green GP 1.5TB (WD15EADS) €96 WD Caviar Black 1TB (WD1001FALS) €80 WD RE3 Enterprise 1TB (WD1002FBYS) €144.62 WD RE4-GP Enterprise 2TB (WD2002FYPS) €245 Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi gugutz I'm not sure about backing-up mapped network drives, but the Libraries for each User are stored at: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries From there you should be able to copy each Library like it's a normal file. I hope this answers your question
  4. You've already done the hard work, you simply need to compile the code; the script works fine Personally, the only change I would make is to change the view to 'Large Icons' (when the taskbar is unlocked). Good job Wazer
  5. Something which, can also point to NVIDIA not allowing the newer driver releases to be used. The installer checks the driver inf file to determine whether or not it should install, something which seems to be working fine on your system.I had a similar issue as you (expect my card was not listed as being compatible and wouldn't install automatically or manually via Device Manager), however I visited LaptopVideo2Go, downloaded their most recent driver and modded inf, replaced the inf from the driver package with the modded version and everything worked like a charm! Try the modded drivers out, after all you've got nothing to loose!
  6. Have you tried visiting laptopvideo2go? They take WHQL drivers and provide you with a modded INF file (which you replace the orignal with), which allows the drivers to work on almost all GeForce models (works fine on my computer with a GeForce4 Ti 4800, which is about to become my spare). That error message your getting in the Device Manager is more than likely an indication that the ForceWare drivers you've downloaded are blocked from installing on older GeForce models. I hope this helps .
  7. @ripken Thanks. That's everything for the moment, more for the lack of budget than anything else . At least I'll have a fully working system, which I can add to when I get the money. I'll probabily get a couple of hard drives (I'm thinking WD Blacks) and then perhaps a second Sapphire HD 4770 in the future, maybe another 4 GB of RAM as well, but I'll see how I go pricewise. I also want to get a third Scythe Slipstream fan with a Zalman fan controller (the tiny ones) for the Three Hundred's side panel as well. Afterwards that will probabily be everything for this build (I may regret saying that!) .
  8. Thanks for your comments guys! Yes the HX520 would more than likely of been sufficient and I probably would of bought it, if I didn't find the HX620 (it was only €20 more, but with free postage the difference was closer to €10). The other reason I went for the higher model was to ensure I had sufficent power for several hard drives (I'm thinking mostly spin-up here) and perhaps in the future a Crossfire setup. The small number of reviews/previews of two 4770's in Crossfire all showed different idle and peak values for the two cards (although they do use less than a pair of 4850's), so it wasn't the easiest task working out how much juice the other components they were using required. In the end it was better to be safe than sorry .
  9. Bad news... I went to get the latest prices for the last two components I need (the motherboard and the PSU) and the store I was going to purchase from no longer sells the HX620! They still sell the motherboard so that's not a problem, but any other company (online or otherwise) want quite a bit more for the HX620 (between €125-140 delivered!) So I could really use some help in choosing an alternative power supply. Here are the models I've picked from the same store which I purchased the Graphics card and the CPU from... Corsair VX550 550W €77 Antec Earthwatts 650W €78.95 Corsair HX520 520W (Modular) €86.95 Antec TruePower New 550W (Modular) €87.95 Corsair TX650 650W €92 I would prefer a modular power supply since my Antec Three Hundred may get a bit crowed when I start adding extra components in the near future (i.e. hard drives -- 5 max, and perhaps a second ATI Radeon HD 4770). I was thinking about going for the Corsair HX520, but I'm not sure if that would leave me with enough of a margin power wise. I would appreciate your suggestions. Thanks! EDIT: Never mind, I eventually found another retailer, which had the motherboard and the PSU in stock (slightly cheaper with free delivery -- panic over!) Just need to wait for them to arrive along with the RAM, which I purchased elsewhere. Once I’ve built my new rig, I may be persuaded to post a few pics .
  10. I couldn't agree more, particulary at lower resolutions. I actually prefer the 'Starter' edition wallpaper (thanks ekos8).I'm assuming the additional wallpapers added for the RC will be included in the RTM? I wasn't too keen on the psychedelic ones, although the I did like the Seattle selection.
  11. I ordered the AMD processor and graphics card (which came today) as they were going in-and-out of stock. I got the tripple-core processor for €108 (as opposed to €126) so that will pay the difference for the higher model psu (always better to be safe than sorry right?) Thanks again Punto! .
