I got desperate and did the windows refresh and it said there were files missing (weird?) so after it completed guess what?...my screen was back to normal...well then I went and downloaded the drivers from the gpu driver installation disc and as soon as they installed the screen went all crazy again...text has what I can only describe as a shadow (black text has a white shadow and white text has a black shadow), colors are smudged and blurry/hazy, videos have very poor resolution and everything seems zoomed in on so what I did next is went to uninstall programs and uninstalled the nvidia graphics driver version 344.11 was then prompted for a reboot and bam! screen back to normal, windows desktop back to normal...taskbar visible again and shortcuts proper size

so something aint jiving what that is yet i'm not sure, i'm thinking maybe a conflict between intel onboard graphics and gpu

and cap, i tried what you said about the monitor and it came back with this device already has the most current driver

What kind of monitor does the system identify? Standard PnP monitor might do it. Since it reported files missing, something might be wrong with windows installation. Just 9 minutes for windows installation sounds suspicious. Try reinstalling Windows after a cold start.
There might be an issue with the M/B capability to communicate with peripherals.

Try to change the monitor driver by selecting another monitor driver from the system list or ask for monitor identification from windows control panel.
There is a choice for flat screen monitors of various resolution capabilities.

if his tv/display device is only 60hz it wouldnt make a difference. might not even work.

I upgraded to a solid state hard drive and windows 7.

The difference is phenomenal.

Now I realize how weak my processor and ram is.

Graphics still decent and I'm good on PSU and storage.

I'm tempted to just keep going and get a new case, new motherboard and cpu

The biggest bottlneck in most PCs is the hard drive with the RPM's needing rev time. If I were you Kish, your first upgrade should be replacing that 1tb hard drive with a smaller solid state drive if you don't use much space to begin with. Most ssd's come with cloning kits too so you don't have to reinstall all your software.
Just wanna say after this SSD talk you bitches should be heeding my advice.

I am so looking in to a new case + mobo + cpu, and i tried to use that build a pc site you linked but i couldnt find my graphics card on there (???) and got pissed.

Its an amd built radeon 7700hd, which is decent enough for me to live with, and not worry about upgrading right now.

But as far as where to go with mobo and cpu, im fairly lost.

That totally depends on the size of the data and what your time constraints are. Also dependent on how the data is being processed, how many processors you have to work with, how you've threaded the process -- is the process going to utilize enough processing power/memory as to require x amount of ram at a time?

umm

the data files will be processed either in excel or in the case they exceed the row limit, in R

i dont know what you are asking really. all things need to be done as fast as possible because i am impatient

i am going for a 4x core i7 and at least 16gb of ram. i know laptops suck at cache'ing but all high end desktops are pimped out for gaming so i dont really know what to look for there

Well as an example, last semester I was processing between 50-100 gigabytes of data for a physics project I was working on. Originally the way I had programmed it, I utilized all my memory at a time, on a single thread, and it took about an hour to process a single set of data, which was too long for me.

I could have bought twice as much ram, and the process would have taken maybe 40% less time.

But I rewrote my code, used some parallelism and a predictive algorithm that allowed me reuse certain blocks of data in my memory, and I was able to cut the time in half without buying any more ram.




I'm not sure how flexible your options are using excel, but I would think that having an amount of ram roughly proportionate to the average size of a dataset would be appropriate.

If you decide to go with R, you'll have greater flexibility and will be able to utilize your memory however you deem appropriate.

(edit: excel has a 2gb file size limit, but I believe you can link excel files to process more data than this.. it starts to depend on what kind of calculations you're doing)

That's because there are many variants to your graphics card.

CC,

What Sir-Ex is boiling down to, is depending on how you're processing your data.

If you're using a data analytics software like SAS, up until very recently it was a single-core program, meaning a higher Ghz i5 would probably work better for you than an i7 with lower frequency but more cores.

I decided id celebrate no more car payments and go ahead and upgrade

I spent 500 on a new cpu, mobo, ram and case.

I could have gotten less for cheaper but I thought that was a fine amount, and I really feel like this is a fun hobby. Plus it's all new to me so i find it pretty stimulating.
