    Heh, heh. What, little me? You didn't think I have a bit of a tendancy to throw an oar in at the slightest opportunity do you Alan wink

    Well, huh! I'm taking my bat and ball and going home! I know when I'm not wanted! (Actually I'm off to east Gippsland for a couple of weeks on the weekend) .

    If the virus plagues have got you,
    Get a Mac!
    If Microsoft has got your goolies,
    Get a Mac
    If you're tired of ever crashing,
    and your nerves are fairly gnashing,
    Don't accept it any longer,
    Get a Mac!!!

    Cheers

    Hmm, well I have a Mac sitting on my desk at the moment, and as much as I like using them this one is just too slow.

    Let me see, should I use a 120mhz PPC 601 with 32mb ram and a 1.2gb HD running OS 8.6, or a 500mhz PIII with 512mb ram, 40gb HD and Windoze XP?

    I love my mac, but it is more useful as something to stick under my screen to get it up to the correct height (and runs as an internet router).

    I do promise though that when I can afford a new computer it will be a mac

    jetway don't make a bad board for the AMD's

    i'm planning to update my old 700AMD to an XP2400 at least soon

    whenever i update i seem to always triple what i already have

    i went from a P90 to a P200 then to the AMD700 so XP2400 seems the next logical step

    but it's always typical

    U won't be dissapointed.

    currently running a 2200+ damn fine is all that I can say.

    Not sure if I can say that I am a fan of jetaway boards, cheap I guess but how reliable?

    out of all the boards i have sold i have never had a jetway arrive U/S
    i have had around 30% failure rate with gigabyte boards
    around 10% failure with ASUS boards
    so i stick to stock what never fails me
    jetway used to be a cheap replacement for people but like lite-on in CD roms they have come a long way in the last couple of years

    I have never owned a jetaway, they are always cheap, maybe not an indication of thier quality,

    I would have to agree about Lite-on. My burner has not had any probs, nor the burners of my friends.

    One of the first mainboards I bought was a Jetway J-TX98B a socket 7 type with one of those Cyrix PR cpu's in it. It is still going strong today. It has a Pentium 233MMX chip in it with 256Mb ram. I use it up in the shed, it's networked to the house computers so I can access the internet up there (handy if you're working on someone's computer)and play mp3's off the main computer's hdd. I wasn't fussed with the bios upgrade when I flashed it, all it did was get rid of half the options I once had in the original bios. I reckon they're a good entry level board for basic games, internet access and word processing.
