Yes, but the motherboard must (sorry for the emphasis, but it's the rule nowadays) have enough SATA cables in the box to connect as many SATA devices as it allows. Still, extra cables can't hurt smiley
I think you're right.  In the newegg pictures it shows a bunch of cables and stuff.

Here's a dumb question:  What's really the problem with Vista?  I don't quite understand.

I haven't been following all of this.  I've used vista occasionally on my parents' computer and it was fine, I thought.  So what's the problem from a practical, daily level?  Does it crash a lot?  Do programs not work?  I hear about some HD hardware disabling or incompatibility, a lot of security confirmations.  Is it bloated?  I don't quite get it.

If anyone can enlighten me from a less techie (layman) standpoint, I'd appreciate.  I believe it, I just don't understand it.

With the price you're paying, I expect they'll throw some cables in the package Grin

No, seriously, all components must bring everything you need and more, otherwise complain to the vendor.
Not necessarily.  My hard drives are oem, so they come bare.  So I have to make sure I have sata cables, at least.  It's minor, but I just want my list to be complete.  I know I can just go down to the store and pick some up.
4454  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Please help me build my new computer, DC! on: January 08, 2009, 05:22:01 PM
Well, it looks like I have all the parts picked out, I've included links to each item's webpage:
[Click here to return to first post and see updated system components & price]

I should buy everything soon.  Now, I need to make sure I have all the wires and cables and stuff.

The RAM I'm getting:
Corsair, Dominator 4GB (2 x 2GB) (PC2 8500)

Is this the right RAM for me?  I don't know.  If not, please let me know thanks.  (Check first post for list of purchases)

I see other similar options:
Corsair 4gb #1
Corsair 4gb #2
Corsair 4gb #3
Corsair 4gb #4
Corsair 4gb #5

...and so forth.  How do I choose?

Good to know.  I'll probably buy these tonight then.  Thanks Carol.

Carol, I read this at NCIXUS (where I plan to buy the monitors, they have a sale).  Is this true?:
Quote
This is a nice crisp, attractive monitor, however the maximum resolution is only 1920 x 1080 rather than 1920 x 1200 which is common for all other 24 inc monitors

Also, in case of dead pixels, ncixus offers an "express coverage" for about $30 where I can RMA the monitor back in 30 days.  Is that worth it?  Shouldn't I be able to return it regardless if it has dead pixels?
4459  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Please help me build my new computer, DC! on: January 08, 2009, 10:31:59 AM
Anyway, I'd say the drive is good to go :Thmbsup
Thanks fodder.

Ok, I made myself a new logo and avatar.  The one from yesterday was specifically for my Autocad portion of my website, so I made another one for general use.

Well, I ran the WD Diagnostics on my new drive, and everything seems fine.  I don't know what the reallocated sector numbers mean, but there's a checkmark there, so I'm assuming it's ok.

^^^ Ha!  Nice pic.  Reminds me of one of my graduation pictures:

superboyac: use WesternDigital's drive testing tool, start with the short test. If that works, do the long test (will probably take 1½-2 hours). If that works, use the tool's "fill drive with zeroes", and check "reallocated sector count" afterwards. If all tests pass (as I'd expect them to on a raptor drive), you're good to go smiley

(Just finished going through that series with a 640GB Western-Digital WD6401AALS drive, which is going to be one half of my new raid mirror after one of the old 400gig disks died... too bad the shop only had one drive in stock, but running a degraded mirror with one new disks, and all the data present on the old disk as well, is better than running a degraded mirror with one old disk smiley).
Wow, thanks for that advice.  I would have never known about that.  I will definitely do this.

Compliments on your new avatar  Thmbsup Thmbsup
Thanks!  I love vector graphics.  Lossless!  Someone made that beautiful crown as an adobe illustrator file and it looks freakin great.  Check it out:

Don't do it - if it is anything like my experience before you know it you will fill it up on your old system and then you'll have to go and buy another one Wink
Ha!  No, I'm just going to make sure it works.  Because I only have 30 days to RMA it, and since I don't have all the other parts, I only have my current computer to test it on.
4466  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Please help me build my new computer, DC! on: January 07, 2009, 12:50:08 PM
My 300GB Raptor arrived yesterday.  I'll try it out today on my current computer.  Next thing to do is buy the rest of the parts.

We have looked at the function today and it's only a display glitch (which will be fixed). The rating is assigned, you can see this by doing the same query again (click on query button).
You're right, it's just a bug.  The ratings are working.

There's a freeware thing out there for this.  Let me try to remember and I'll post back.
4470  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Should I change my profile logo? on: January 06, 2009, 11:39:47 AM
I changed the logo.  I found a vector graphics crown, so I used it.

Should I change my profile logo here, or do people prefer you keep the same picture since they recognize it?

Aargh! How frustrating.  Darn, that would have made everything perfect.  It's not that big a deal, I suppose.  It just gets a little annoying with all the tabs...I hope a workaround comes about later.

OK, Outertech said that it is not possible to open bookmarks in the current tab (as opposed to a new tab, or new window).  Is this really true?  I'm not saying it isn't, I just find it a little hard to believe it can't be done.  In the version history for TabMix (a firefox addon) they are able to open links in current tabs.

Thanks for the sortiing tip, very helpful.  I'm close to committing to Linkman.
