    Yeah, isn't an Intel Gigabit Ethernet port, literally speaking for itself, essentially? Like it can do up to about 1000Gbit? And I believe a CAT 5e Ethernet cable can do up to 300mbit, if I remember right. Alas, it seems we are still stuck dealing with slow internet because of what tetrisGOAT said and also what our providers would deem okay for us to have. =/

    If you think that's messy..



    Tap water in Denmark tastes like monkey balls, I can't get used to it so I just buy spring water ^^

    Moving in less than a week so I don't see the point of cleaning up yet

    Also I can't stop watching this, anybody who plays SC should see it.

    Nuh uhhh!!!

    inb4 pictures of slightly cleaner stuff. Totally going to go to the hardware store tomorrow perhaps and buy some actual external cable-management thingies. Forget what they're called. The ones you attach to your desk and stick the cables through, essentially.

    Hey guys and gals first time in this thread, I had a question about some of the hardware I'm using in my desktop.

    CPU: AMD Phenom (tm) II X4 965 Processor, speed is 3.42 GHz

    Is this CPU outdated/able to be replaced by something substantially better without too much of a cost? Just curious. And being slightly noobish on computers (My dad has built them so far, I'm trying to learn more about them) would overclocking be a good option for this CPU?

    Thanks - Hastings

    This thread is really more for us to be allowed to do off-topic bantering, your post is really warrants its own thread, but I'll go ahead and answer.

    There's really nothing I would suggest you upgrade to, buying a Phenom II x6 1100T wouldn't be a big enough upgrade to be worth it and Bulldozer is hardly at all better than a Phenom II. You should be able to OC it, but don't expect to get too high, maybe 4.0GHz, and you'd have to have good cooling.

    I'd honestly suggest you save up money and buy a Z77 board and an Intel i5 Ivy Bridge CPU... you'd see a much bigger improvement and all.

    Keep it and overclock it.
    Depending on what games you play, upgrading will have no effect.

    Honestly, I'd say no. Ivy Bridge looks to become an extremely short-lived processor as Haswell will probably see the light in Q1 or Q2 next year. I say wait for that.

    Thanks for the quick responses, sorry for going a bit off topic in the thread. I will try and over clock it then hopefully it should net some positive results.
