Any further suggestions/modifications can be pm’d to one of the mods.
Usual Boards.ie rules apply here and in addition:
1) Read the FAQ
Please please please read the FAQ before you post a question. The FAQ contains solutions to queries that always come up on this forum, so it’s quite possible that the answer to your problem is in it. Any posts that ask for a solution to a problem that is within the FAQ will be deleted.
2) If you are asking for advice on a new build
Please include as much information as possible on what you expect the computer to do, what you will be using it for, and any special requirements you have (e.g. a tape drive, linux compatibility). Don't just post up "does this spec look ok". Try to be specific; don't say things like "has to have plenty of space". That means nothing. Instead say something like "I'd like to be able to store 2 hours of DV footage, or 200 ripped DVD’s". Include a definite budget that you are not going over and what the budget covers (i.e. core build, new monitor, OS, peripherals...).
3) Discussion of illegal activity will result in a ban.
There won’t be any more warnings. Just banning and post deletions. Discussion of illegal activity (warez, cracks, where to download copyright material, etc) puts this whole community in danger of being shut down, so it won’t be tolerated.
4) Unhelpful comments
Unhelpful comments (e.g. "OOOGAABOOOOGA WHERE DA WHITE WIMIN AT) will result in a one day ban.
5) Thread Titles
The mods reserve the right to retitle a thread if it is offensive or does not accurately reflect the topic of the thread.
6) No Fanboyism
Safe to say that people posting here are interested in building their own computers so we can do without the *insert PC manufacturer name here* bashing so long as there isn't an overwhelming excuse for it - I won't blame someone whose jaw drops when shown appaullingly bad "complete" systems from eBay or Ankermann, or looks despairingly at yet another non-upgradeable Dell BTX-box and curses the gods, but lets keep any dry comments about said to a minimum please. Also fanboyisms like "ATI is crap" without being able to support your opinion is a no no. All we care about here is what boasts superior price-to-performance for the intended task.
7) Discussion of building DVD duplication machines
This topic is completely forbidden due to piracy concerns any thread created related to this topic will be instantly locked. And yes, we know what model drives can be used for duplicating console discs so may God have mercy on all those who try to go hunting for them specifically...
