  1. I just watched the ltt video on facebook about building a $69 gaming rig. It is funny Linus mentioned getting an old optiplex. I got enough parts to build up a complete 990 SFF with 16G (4x4G) DDR3 1333 MHz ram, i5-2400@3.1GHz, 2G AMD Radeon R5 340X, 16x dvd +/- rw and 2x 500G 2.5" 7200rpm hdd in raid config running windows 10 home 64 bit. And I built it all for the time and cost it took to put an ad on craigslist. ($0 for those who dont know). The only parts I didn't get with the parts was my 40" rca 1080p smart led tv. I even got the usb wifi adapter on top too. Lol. Remember, total cost was $0. Plus I have over 9TB of external hdd space to go with it.

    USB Boot?

    she has a HP Pavilion x360 lap with windows 10 that I just fixed for her today too. That one was easy to fix. just reboot and download/install all the updates from the last 1-2 years (43 in total) it took 3 hours to finish. LOL. Her inspiron is where she downloads all her school files and completes her assignments since it has way more room on it. keep in mind, she is stubborn and she is the client so I have to give her what she sks for.

    USB Boot?

    She is older than me by 8 years (I'm 49) and she barely knows how to use XP plus I have about 3 different Vista Business Product keys/ Licenses already. I run it on one of my Dell Latitude laptops and it runs perfect. I think the vista business is based on the XP platform. I tried putting linux on it (Mint, Debian, Ubuntu) and I could not get the WLAN drivers to install so I could do a net install and the same issue with the USB install. (damn dead DVD R/W, ISOs would be so easy to use right about now)

    USB Boot?

    I have been trying to get my external USB drive to be bootable. I have used WinUSB Maker and it has said that the drive was successfully created but when I try to boot from it, nothing happens. I am trying to reinstall vista business on my sisters old laptop so she can use it for her college courses online. Before you tell me to go get a new laptop, I am flat broke with $.38 to my name (thanks covid) and she is not much better. it is a Dell Inspiron 1300, Pentium M @ 1.7GHz, 2G Ram, 5400rpm HDD, WLAN and a dead DVD-R/W. the USB drive is an old 320G laptop drive I have hooked up to a USB-IDE/SATA adapter. I could use some ideas on how to fix it please.
  5. Anyone know whos logo this is?
  6. I plan to hold on to it for several years. I just wanted a starting point to track the appreciation over the years.

    Star Wars

    Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't said Hi earlier but I have a question for all the Star Wars nerds out there. I have an original Topps Star Wars collection Han Solo trading card still in the original cellophane and I am trying to find out what it is worth. Any idea? Here are some pics of it
  8. I did that to find out it is a radeon 5670 with 1G ram but not who makes it. If I can figure out whos logo that is I can find out who made it.
  9. I have an ATI Radeon HD EAH5670 1GB I think. It doesn't actually say ATI or Radeon anywhere on the card. The logo is a red and white diamond with a D in the middle. Who makes it? The model number comes back to a Radeon 5670 with 1GB ram but there are several ones listed. A little help? See Pics
  10. Ok now for a related question on the 2400. Is there any way to flash the bios in the optiplex 990 to allow overclocking the i5-2400. No way to do it right now.
  11. I am wondering if a intel i5-4590 will replace a intel i5-2400 cpu in a dell optiplex 990 sff. The dell works great with the 2400. I was given a 4590 for free in a few boxes of parts. I know the 2400 is a lga1155 socket and the 4590 is a lga1150 . don't know the difference.
  12. Nice responses so far everyone. I personally prefer my version of longhorn developers copy.(yes I was friends with one of the lead developers on Vista) It is rock solid and is before they put the developers bugs in it to force updates or upgrades
  13. What do you think is the best OS ever? Why?
