Cool      Guday from New Zealand

This is my new build

WILBUR’S SPECIFICATIONS

MOTHERBOARD     Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3 (Rev 2).  AMD 770/SB700. Socket AM2+/AM2. PCI-Exp 2.0 x 16/4. PCI-ex1. ATX. 4 X DDR2 Dual channel. HD audio GbE LAN. 6 x Sata. 3 GB/s/1394. FSB 2600MHz Hyper Transport (5200 MT/s).

PROCESSOR     AMD Athlon X2 64 black edition ( the expensive one ) 7750. 2.7 GHz True dual core design. Clock multiplier control. Cache L1 = 1 Mb, L2 = 2 Mb.

RAM     OCZ. DDR2 2 x 2 GB. Matched gaming ram. 1066 Ghz.

VIDEO CARD     Asus Gaming Series 8600 GTS 256 MB GDDR 3, Model EN8600GTS/HTDP/256M.

POWER SUPPLY     Corsair VX450

OPERATING SYSTEM     XP SP3 32 bit, updated with an Autopatcher, and Bill’s Service Tweaks. Then serviced with :- CCleaner, IOBit ASC, IOBit Defrag Smart, Revo Uninstaller, JV16 Power Tools, Ultra Defrag, Eraser, etc.

Embarassed     Drivers

When I unzip the drivers, audio, chipset, lan, and raid, there are a whole host of files, including 3 exe’s, per folder. Where can I find instructions to install them, and in which order ? Gigabyte are very helpful, but they are Asian, who cannot communicate in English, to technical standards of accuracy. I have read the manual, and its in Asian converted to English, O dear.

The standard Nvidia drivers are just one exe file, so just DLC and boom, their in, but I believe they must be installed after the mobo drivers ? 

Kiss    Boot Defragers

Presently I use Ultra Defrag, but its only basic. Anybody know of any promotions for say, Distrix Ultimate Defrag, that include the directories and mft.

Yell     Toggle

Whats this toggle business thing mean, Toggle Spell Checker, Toggle Desktops. I asked my girlfriend if I could use her toggle, and  got a bloody thick ear, then told not to be crude. 

Is it like the newbie, who looked for the Contol Panel on the back of his computer.

Surprised     Regards Bill3.

 Nice system. I would probably go a little bit higher on the PSU.

Now let’s see, drivers… Usually there’s no definite set order to install your drivers. Personnaly I always go LAN first for the internet connection. Typically it’s VGA – Chipset – LAN (or modem if you have one) – Audio is last I guess.

You mentioned RAID, are you going to use it? If yes don’t forget the enable it in the Bios.

As far as

” I asked my girlfriend if I could use her toggle “

That is no way to talk to a lady my friend! Surprised

“1066 Ghz” – is that “1066 Mhz”?

Anyway, I wish I had this computer. Frown

Hey Bill3!

……Where can I find instructions to install them, and in which order ?……

Since you mentioned that you have  IOBit ASC, have you looked in the security tab & checked out the “Driver Backup” info?

Also, I would always at least do a system restore before each new driver is installed……….just to be on the safe side. Better yet, would be to do a whole system backup 1st, [there are many freebies if you’re interested…just ask!]…at least for the major ones…. or ones you don’t have prior experience with.

Good luck, mate!
