Ok, so my computer really sucks. It was fine until I put this high speed internet on it. Now everything runs as slow as solid piss.
I first noticed some issues after I loaded my Photoshop CS3 Extended on the PC. I used to be able to run alot of programs at once. I could have my Sims game, PSCS3 or PSP 9, Yahoo Messenger, my WM Player or Winamp, and the internet open, and have no issues what so ever. I had bodyshop open, I had my internet on (which it's broadband, so it's always on), and my PSP 9 open. I had just opened AIM, and the computer gives me a dialogue box that says it doesn't have enough memory to load my program. It went good for a few minutes, and then my computer cut off.
I reboot, and my internet wont reconnect. I'm on a wireless connection, so I tried to repair the connection, that wouldn't work. I used system restore and restored the settings of the previous day. That got the internet back to working.
My motherboard won't suport more than 512 mb of ram, so I know that is the problem. It's supposed to be able to hold up to a gig, but when I bought a gig of ram, the PC wouldn't boot. So in conclusion, I have to completely revamp my system, or basically build a new one.
I'll need a new motherboard that will support at least 2 gigs of ram, a new processor, graphics card, sound card, and I want to hardwire my broadband so it doesn't loose connection every time the power blinks or something.
I've had alot of problems with these new speakers I bought. They are 5 speaker surround sound (by Logitech). I bought a two channel sound card, since that is what I supposidly needed for all 5 speakers to work. Well, I don't think my crappy ass motherboard supports that either. Because only 3 of the 5 speakers work, which sucks considering how much I paid for this set up.
I also want to upgrade my LCD monitor from a 17 in. to 20 in. The monitor is only two years old, but I might as well upgrade it too.
The last thing I'll need is a new case to put everything in. This old one is a peice of living crap. I liked it for the first year I had it, but now it looks like one of those things from Star Trek. I'd be thrilled to see it burst into flames. I'd like to get a black and silver case with transparent blue sides. I know one like that exists, I've seen it somewhere, just don't remember where.
Lastly, I just got a 200 gig hard drive. Now, why would I need more space than that on my PC you ask? Because I'm crazy. Yes, I'm going to upgrade that too.
In other words, my PC is a peice of junk, I need a new one, and I'll be broke as hell after buying all these parts next week.
