Re: Windows needs more memory...

... I tried, but all of that went woosh past and above my head. :) But it's nice to know someone knows what's going on. ;) Let me put it this way ... I had trouble buying something with my (redacted) card in Christmas of '08 ... and then it was as often as 50% of the time. In January of...

Re: Recommended MINIMUM specs for Elite: Dangerous VR revealed

With nVidia basically saying only the Titan for the new architecture will make its appearance on most shelves this year (very late consumer product line arrival), I finally forked over US$500 to upgrade to a GTX 980 Ti 6GiB. Was hoping to try it with my GTX 970 4GiB, but decided I had read enough. ...

Re: GPU help please

I'm currently running with a GTX660 GPU and with Horizons it starting to struggle a bit. It's coupled with an i5-3330 CPU and 12GB of RAM. I'm contemplating swapping out the GTX660 for a GTX970 because I don't need cutting edge performance and I think I can get away with it (without my wife noticin...

Re: Windows needs more memory...

Yup, this LOL. I think the major problem is that some programs are coded to take advantage of paging for more than a errant crash dump and because you don't really know what a program is going to do till you are hands on with it.

Re: Windows needs more memory...

... Every modern OS uses some sort of pagefile/swap file. Linux, Unix, OSX, and Windows. And because they rely on its ability to swap in and out of memory as needed ...

Re: What are you doing (ingame) now?

What kind of an I5 btw, since I am considering a desktop with a 6500 as a processor? An Old one :) Purchased this system in 2010 so its been around the block a little. Here is the CPU-Z information. My system is being more held back by the GTX 650 than the CPU at this point. (removed i5 750 Lyn...

Re: What are you doing (ingame) now?

Finally made it to billionaire. Did not make it to trading elite, only 46% tycoon, so some work remains.

Re: CMDR TheBS (YAMAA)

Welcome to Mobius, Commander TheBS. (Catchy alias, BTW) ;) Thanx. Most people IRL just refer to me as "BS" (or "bjs" professionally). Folding these responses ... When you talked about racing, and then America, I expected you to then lead into NASCAR... which is my favorite sport...
