  15. Guess what? There's people who paid lots more for even older systems (or newer), and yet they've all moved to modern systems. Except in your case, you could probably find computers that don't cost any money (as in free) that are vastly better than yours (I've seen TONS of systems discarded/thrown away that were MUCH nicer for sure). I fail to see why that would even be a reason to keep using an old junker in the first place. Not so. Not by a LONG shot. There are TONS of very high quality components out there these days (FAR better than anything from the P3 era). From motherboards with solid polymer caps, various coolers with heatpipes, great PSUs like Seasonics, etc. Something like a million times better built than your old box thrown together from no-name parts, including a cheapo yamaha sound card (or is that the vortex one?), sitting on a low-budget mATX motherboard (GA-6WMM7) which is built from a low-cost i810 chipset, along with a video card from a budget series (the MX 4xx series) -- but even then that wasn't cheap enough, it had to be the SE version of it, and PCI too (which gets thoroughly slaughtered by any older GeForce 3 Ti, and is faster than a much older GeForce 2 Ti by something like 10%)... All cheap/budget/low-cost parts, and probably all worn out by now too (e.g. fans). Not exactly what I'd call quality, even for 10 years ago. It's like the computer equivalent of a Ford Pinto. BTW, "lol" is not a replacement for punctuation. i dont need people saying my computer is crap and old all i need is help if you cant help then dont write at all
  16. because it costed money lol plus every thing theese days are made cheap and crap if i buy one probloy die in 2 years what happaned to my new laptop lol
  17. ok PhotoImpact 12 se works fine so one program you can add to the list and Audiosurf but not much people have or want that but you can add to the list if you want
  18. well i guess its just a buggy game since i tried it on my laptop (about 10x better then what am doing it on now)and it seem a bit slow but it was on full graphics but it should run fine plus i dont want to make a new system since this has be serving me good for 10 years
  19. hey does the newest adobe reader work? and if it does is it any faster then version 6? or is it slower lol because fire fox 3 is much slower then firefox 2 and what about flash 10 is it needed? or just stay with 9 ?
  20. hey every one i got this game called gun metal but it runs slow and i have put it on lowest graphics and still it runs a bit slow so is their a patch for it?? it seems theirs a patch for it but when i try to download it it says link not found so i need a website that still has it my computer 386 of sd pc-133 ram 933mhz pentium 3 l2 256kb cache nvidia geforce 4 mx 440 se pci 64mb yamaha sound card and system requirements for the game Operating System: Windows 98,2000,ME,XP Processor: Pentium II 450 or equivalent RAM: 64 MB System RAM Video Card: 32MB 3D graphics card Processor: DirectX 9 compatible sound card
  21. lol windows me is good just some people didit like it for some reson guess they just liked making crap about it since they didit have any thing else to do
  22. ok well hes a pic of it just to make sure we all know what it is and we sure its a hard ware problom(which 99% sure Lol) when i leave it on for about 30 secs and all the white stuff fades away and leaves half blue and half black screen and yes it both sides are powered on so its not a light i guess it appears to somes time to fade to half black and half blue but now its just fading to black most of the time
