  1. Hey! I have XP Pro OEM SP1 (from when I bought XP)... Now... Do I slipstream SP2 then SP3 or just do SP3? After messing about for a bit, if I do SP2 then SP3 the size is 654MB if I do SP3 the size is 638MB its an extra 16MB!!! Do I need that extra? What is it?
  2. I thinks it should be xhtml **** **** Also the file does have xhtml stuff in it (e.g. the first line) btw thanks for pointing out the typo! I also found another few lil things - so here is the up-to-date version! tweaks_collection_v0.4.2_en-(UNOFFICIAL).zip *** Please note: I have only edited the files in "all", NOT IN "essentials" ***
  3. Hello, Ive try my best to update this! *went though the thread, and updated all the files in the "all" folder* I also updated all the web links (and downloaded the files into the new ZIP) Here is the new link =) *** LOOK DOWN 2 POST! *** enjoy! --blahface
  4. Tho would it run? just not well!? Im trying now to cut a few corners with the price... also lil confused as on Dabs it says: "Gainward's award winning High-Performance/ Wide-Bandwidth hardware design powered by NVIDIA's GeForce 7600 GS GPU integrating 256MB high-speed DDR3 memory which offers enhanced, leading-edge performance for the 3D enthusiasts." Thats going to cost more! Ok... Seasonic S12 Series, does that rate well? Could I use a 380w?
  5. Could you give it a once over again - its been updated!
  6. Yep, download stright from there webbie (both the XP and MCE drives (just in case!)) but still no joy!
  7. Bad time with beta drivers - comany never finished them! forcing me to upgrade parts! How good is the on board wireless? Thanks for the heads up! Good for you! I dont plan to use vista till atleast sp1 is out, along with lots of apps....
  8. Its not a hardcore gamers rig - just a silent server with lots of room for music that does the odd video editing! (and once a blue moon CSS, tho I will be getting UT 3 and C&C 3 - they have to be play 'fine')
  9. To get bigger PSU which is "silent", it cost alot more.... That 380w is what I had in my "old" system (AMD Atholthon 64 3200+ , ATI 9600 , 1GB RAM) was quiet enought and powered it fine! O well, a few people people have said this - so I might have to part with more money....
  10. Can I asks, whats wrong with onboard LAN? I can remember the day when 400MHz was the fastest. (the last time I built a PC!) ... Im right in thinking that its for the mobo to support faster RAM not the CPU? This is the part I hate buying! Im not a gamer, but due to vista looks like im going to have to spend more money that I usally do!!! ATI X1600 is looking this best so far to me....
