    Re: New computer now.

    Using Classic Shell (it shipped w/ my system but no installed). Upgrading it was easy peasy too.

    lol; I can't even get my PS updates to install for whatever reason Plugs; still, the only reaso I re-installed PS is to process my Leica RAWs so updates aren't really necessary.

    started a topic New computer now.

    New computer now.

    Well, ol' Betsy died on me Wednesday. Got a new machine and I can't believe how blazingly fast it is compared to my old 2007/8 vintage Dual Core AMD. Now I have 4 CORE AMD (8 cpu) ASUS computer w/ 12Gs of RAM (double what I had before) and 2TByte HD (4 times what I had before). I was actually thinking about getting an ASUS several months ago (my first system used an ASUS MB and I really liked that computer back then). Cool that ASUS is branching out into the workstation itself. Anyway, the only two programs I've not re-installed are Photoshop CS5 and Photo Reactor (well, two programs that I've even an inkling to install that is; I had a lot of junk installs or some would like to say one use wonders (lol) that don't need to be re-installed if you know what I mean). If I find a decent RAW processor, I probably won't re-install PS (as some here already know, I'm a GIMP guy; only reason I kept upgrading my PS is to process RAW since I've yet found a decent RAW processor other then PS's). Anyway, I was venting pretty badly until my sister slapped me (virtually that is; she's nearly 200 miles from where I live) and said I'm fortunate that I money in the bank to replace my old system with a new; most folk on this planet don't, and I had to agree with her. I just hate spending money on myself. Still, I guess I can get use to it. lololol

    As for Win8.1 (came shipped that way), I can get use to that too. It's not as horrible as many folk led me to believe. I can get use to Metro; just have to refrain from buying apps (so far, most have been free; lol).

    after nine computer crashes PS CS6 acting up
    by Modular_Folds
    Hello:
    Since I initially joined the forum a few months back I've had little time to enjoy it because my laptop crashes and crashes- and crashes! Hard too! One format, several restores, a couple "refreshes" and a couple "resets". Spending hours tweaking the desktop and removing...

    A lot of computer help needed
    by Ed_L
    I've been having a lot of trouble with my computer for a while, and we're thinking seriously about buying a new one. Since we know *little* about computers, I have several questions.

    1. What's the difference between a Celeron and Pentium processor? Is one better than the other?

    I bought a new router
    by Doug Nelson
    Having a home LAN requires a router. I've never given them much thought, simply buying one with enough ports and checking user reviews to make sure people like it. My Linksys started misbehaving last year so I bought the current version of the same one. The net connection it provided was untrustworthy,...

    Computer hairballs
    by Doug Nelson
    Starting a few days ago I started having random system freezes. No BSOD or anything, just everything would suddenly stop, no mouse, no keyboard, my computer screen became a still photo. So, I started investigating.

    In spite of the fact that all my internet research said it was a hardware...

    Single vs. dual processors?
    by jeaniesa
    I'm still trying to figure out why my system is acting weird. So, while I wait for HW diagnostics and CPU stability tests to run, I'm also looking at NEW systems!! If my current computer acts up one more time (if I ever get it back up and running - I'm using my laptop at the moment), I'm buying a...
