A little while ago it took my laptop like 4 hours to boot after it froze while updating so I had to hard shut down when it was updating. Luckily it still worked though.

I didn't know that ti prevented downgrade on the 84+ series, which OS did they start on?


Snektron

They tried to; but they didn't actually do it :P
(not sure why, maybe DJO knows it)

It started on calcs that had Boot code 1.03. But BrandonW wrote a tool called Epicfail that lets you replace it.

Its so bad in win 8, it won't even let you turn off auto update.


There is a way actually to do it. I found it and I've done it, but I can't remember how I've done that ><
Windows is always like "butttt whatttttt  get my update back !" but I don't listen him  :P

IIRC, on Windows XP you could turn off the nagging every 5 minutes to reboot, but you had to do it on every reboot. I wonder if this is the same on other Windows OSes? Also, another annoying thing about Windows is how it loves to steal window focus. I downloaded a program for XP that fixed that once, but then it stopped doing anything. I'll need to check if such program exists for Windows 7. TI-Connect and ESPECIALLY, ESPECIALLY TI-Nspire Student s***ware are particularly bad about that.

One of my professors is selling me his old computer (since my comp had a hard drive failure recently and it's old).

It has:
-Intel i7 950 CPU
- Nvidia GTX 470
-6 GB of DDR3 RAM
-1 TB hard drive
-Gigabyte X58A-UD3R Motherboard

Some parts are a bit dated, but it's much, MUCH better than my old computer.




DJ Omnimaga

What generation of i7 is it? I got the same amount of HDD space and 8 GB of RAM, but I bought it in February 2010.

Scipi

I think it's 1st generation. The Intel site lists it under "previous generation." It's one of the components I'm gonna update when I get the chance. I'm gonna go for a newer CPU, a GTX 980, and some more RAM once I get the funds.

I built a sort of medium system about 6-months back - FX-8350 octa-core, 16GB RAM, AMD 290X graphics. My old system was about 7 years old (quad core phenom) so this one handles things a fair bit easier :).

Snektron

Fx-8350 you say? Quickly, overclock it to 8.5 Ghz
Withs some nitrogen cooling  :P.
Also, that 290x would run a few particles on my
Fbo particle system, you should check it out :)

I thought that amd got a 4300 to 9ghz. The most I'll ever try when I assemble my build is 4.5GHz even though I've heard it can handle 5 easy. (Processor is 8350)

Edit. Nope it was actually an 8150 that made it to a clock speed of 9062 mhz

You'd like have to take it into outer space and it would still need cooling after that.

I'd upgrade the ram too, corsair vengeance is what I've got but faster speed ram is getting much cheaper, $60 for 8gb for 1600, $70 for 8gb 1866.
