    Building a computing is like lego, simples. :yes:

    I currently have 2GB DDR2 800MHz Corsair RAM and an AMD Phenom II x4 @ 3Ghz. :coma: And an ATi Radeon x1950, the only component that has been in my PC since day 1. :facepalm2: I hate it, it's a bit loud.
    I don't understand the MHz part of the RAM. Higher is better, yes? So would 4GB at 800MHz be better than 2GB at 1GHz?

    You don't get 1GHz RAM. :ahee: 800MHz, 1066, 1333...

    The MHz apart is the data transfer rate. I couldn't say really, it would depend on the rest of the PC spec I'd imagine. :holmes:

    -------

    On a side note... I found a new case, perhaps small enough that I don't have to opt for a mATX build later in the year. I am tempted to get one now for my current build and a new graphics card. :teeth:

    Srs. The old one started turning itself off before boiling, or something like that, required manually holding down to continue :facepalm2:

    Hi :hello:

    Cba to make a whole thread cos I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this anyway, had my external HDD plugged in for a couple of hours (while secretmessages was nicely helping me) and cos I restarted the Laptop about 10 billion times I didn't realise that it wasn't being recognised no more :sad:
    Then I listen in and I heard a clicking noise...really quite though...and after a bit of jiggling around it seems to have subsided and the HDD is being recognised again so my question is should I get everything off ASAP? Cos it seems like the hard drive is working again but how long it'll last for :iiam:.

    ~200gb worth of stuff on there

    Yes, hard drives shouldn't make any clicky noises, so yes back up!

    What do I do with the hard drive after? It seems like a waste, a Western Digital sexy looking thing....I paid £70 for it back in the day!
