The "I'm still on 478 and am too poor to upgrade" thread - Page 5

post #41 of 79
I still have a 478, I am not happy because I have a decent vid card, but when ther are more than 10 ppl in a map, I notice like 20 fps difference.

I can bump up the fsb through a program, but because my mobo is oem I can't bump up the voltage. So everything for me unstable except stock.

I had a old P4 2ghz Northwood, played css around 30 - 50 fps depends on the map. It took about 5 seconds just to play a song in windows media player!

Crappiest cpu I've had.

I'm on one now.. I'm getting a C2D system, but it's mainly because my motherboard doesn't support PCI-E.. otherwise, I'd just buy a graphics card :E
The motherboard I want doesn't support this CPU, so I'm just getting a new rig altogether =) Ordering today!

If it took you 5 seconds to play a song, then that's not because the CPU is slow (it's not - my dad has an old 1.5GHz Celeron laptop and it takes less than that)

The x64 version of Vista will recognise over 16EB. Well, at least in theory.

64-bit environments should allow for CPU's to address over 17 billion GB of RAM. Though to be honest, I see no point in running more than 4GB in any other situation other than a server environment.

When it comes to working out how much memory a CPU can address you use the simple 2^x formula.

32-bit = 4GB
2^32 = 4294967296Bytes
4294967296Bytes / 1024 = 4194304 KiloByte
4194304KB / 1024 = 4069 MegaByte
4096MB / 1024 = 4 GigaByte

64-bit = 17179869184GB
2^64 = 18446744073709551616Bytes
18446744073709551616Bytes / 1024 = 18014398509481984 KiloByte
18014398509481984KB / 1024 = 17592186044416 MegaByte
175921860444416MB / 1024 = 17179869184 GigaByte
17179869184GB / 1024 = 16777216 TeraByte
16777216TB / 1024 = 16384 PetaByte
16384PB / 1024 = 16 ExaByte

oh thanks.

ALota members here say that it only supports 4 gigs (or so it seems). Or there just saying the 64bit version only practical amoutnt is 4 gigs
