    FLACO It's not the A/C. I'm talking too much & need to keep the papers from blowing around.

    From what I understand they are similar. Note: I do not use my fingers to type as my hands are in casts. Use chopsticks at the moment.

    After having a bout of foot in mouth disease, had to switch to hands - OUCH. With chopsticks, I can be further from the keyboard.

    Nerv, There isn't a preferred amount of gb's their speed is more or less the same the difference is in the capacity and what you pay for it.
    However, Maxtor have come out with a new line of hard disks of good performance with 8mb cache on them they are now selling a 320 Gb disk.
    These disks are fast enough and support ATA 133. I know that it is not much an improvement over ATA 100 but it does give you a slight improvement in speed. I've seen serial ATA at work and I think it will still take at least 6 months until they will really be worth considering (I'd wait for the second generation).

    got a 120 deathstar, the fricking thing takes 6 hours to boot if i install an OS on it, i stole my parents 10Gb WD and 0put an OS on there, the thing flies
    anyone else got this problem?
    I know my system can handle it
    dual AMD MP 2100+
    1GB ram (1 stick) pc2100
    520 watt power supply (AMD Certified)
    Nvidia GF2 TNT2(leave me alone im getting a new job)
    blah blah and my IBM 120GB deathstar
    if no one has this problem anyone know how to fix it?
    i mean it works fine once an OS is already runing, i havent had any other problems
    i tried partitioning it to a single 10 gig partition to boot from, multiple partitions, (i wont partition the whole thing into one big partition cuz that increases the cluster size on the hdd after about 10 gig and after about 20 youll be able to notice a difference in the performance of the drive and you may find that the same thing on a smaller partition actually takes less space than on a huge partition....) you want more info.... ask i can go on and on but yah
    i have no idea what is going on with it
    anyone?????

    PS. Buy a WD
