Fellow Tweakers,

As I recently posted, I'm new in the relm of computers. I'm however willing to turn my computer into a "lab-rat" for learning purposes. Instead of wasting your valuable time can someone direct me to any munual on how to over-clock. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you can even navigate the web to find our site, then you deserve more than an e-Machine. ACK!:snip:

Whats wrong with an eMachine?
If i didn't have very much money and i didn't know anything about computers (99% of the world) I would buy an eMachine. Did you know at Best Buy if you get any problems with an eMachine, they wont fix it or you - they'll just give you a new one. Thats if you pay $100 for the warranty. AND when they give you the new one, they will move your stuff off the hard drive (which for most of the world is a few documents, AIM, a couple save games, and some songs)
Thats not bad...

... for an eMachine

Edit: I did some research eMachines is going to start incorporating 420D chipsets into their computers. Not bad.

I was just kidding about the E- Machine. Not that their is anything wrong with them. Besides I can't afford anythig right now.

JediAgent,

The main reason that we all dread the thought of an eMachine is because it is about a crappy a system as you can find anywhere. The power features are non-existent and nearly everything is incorporated onto the motherboard. This inbred combination of very few actual components leaves nearly no room for future upgrading, and throws the concept of overclocking right out the window.

Granted, there are a lot of computer illiterate people out there who could do well with this monstrosity, but they don't reside on this site. We take pride in the fact that we always try to get the most out of our systems, and a large percentage of our readership even build their own systems.

That is the purpose of TweakTown after all... to have a place to go where you can gain knowledge enough to climb out of that deep hole wherein lies the integrated system.

*Steps off soapbox* :)

You have a very valid point Darth.
TT should not be the place for anything from eMachines. My only point, which i see was already understood by this crowd, was to respect eMachines as a company made for lose less computer literate than ourselves. And i do know EXACTLY whats in some eMachines, as i do most of the computer repair in my hall, and some of my fellow students do have one.

The first sentence of post started with "if" and i keep by that statement. Hypothetically, were i not as computer literate and somewhat poor i would see an eMachine with more prospect than i do now, but hypothetically, i could also be a blabbering drunk whose only use for a pc is to play solitaire....

Check my sig - it aint no E.

Emachines kicks ass...I got a 400i3 model in 1998 and that was up from a 486/66. At the time I was very computer literate and my family had no interest in gettting a new computer. When we got that emachine, it was the happiest day of my life. Without it, I would not be talking to you guys today, since it gave me the drive to learn and create with computers, hardware, and most of all tweaking. I love emachines!:bounce2: :kay:
(PS. I had it tweaked so l33t that with 400 cele, 256mb ram, and voodoo3 2000 pci, it was faster than my friends Dell 700 P3, 192mb, geforce 256.) EMACHINES IS GOD!


(although I wouldn't go near one for money now)
