post #3241 of 19729
The desk is a certified disaster area... i'm working on it. I downloaded Memtest86, Prime95, C Cleaner, and CPU-Z. Are there any other freeware apps i should download? temp. monitors? anti-virus stuff? This is my first PC in years.

I would recommend:

Intel Burn Test / GPU-Z / AVG / AntiMalwareBytes / Avast / 3dMark Vantage and 3dMark 06 / Coretemp / OCCT / Orthos / SuperPi

Open Office for your desktop publishing.
Gimp for advanced photo editing.
Picasa for basic photo editing/organization/posting.

Also, get the evga precision software for your card.. it's beautiful. If you're interested at ALL in folding, that 285 is an absolute beast.

- Everest 5 is a good monitoring/benching/info software (not sure tho if theres a free version)
- Avast 4 Home edition is a very good Antivirus program - a must have
- Ultimate Defrag FREE Public Edition is a GREAT defragmenting software - a must have
- Free Download Manager is also cool (altho Internet Download Manager is better but not free).
- OCCT 3.0.1, Orthos, Intel Burn Test for testing out your rig
- Picasa 3 is a very simple yet good (and free) photo manager, and its fairly easy on the PC resources

- Google Chrome (in my opinion), a very good, fast and lite web browser - a must have
- Open Office if you dont feel like paying for a regular MS Office
- GOM Player is a great and simple media player (and it has built in codecs for most of the media types) - a must have

That should get you started

What about SiSandra..? That's not too far off from Everest.

Also, I LOVE rocketdock as a neat windows addon.

I also suggest Orthos, it's a great stress tester. Also Firefox >>> Chrome.

yah. I'm with you on Everest being worlds ahead of SiSandra. I swear I think Everest does a freeware version somewhere.

Read this. I run Firefox as well, but as far as security goes: Chrome > whatever you want to put up against it.

Seriously Google Chrome (again in my humble opinion) the best browser out there. As i myself am a minimalist i don't need bunch of addons a stupid stuff that probably just slows your browsing experience down. I did a quick test on my PC few weeks ago and disocvered that Chrome loads pages and photos much faster than Firefox (at the time i used 3.0.1 i think), but what i appreciate the most in Chrome is its simplicity...

Chrome 2 beta is out, but i would advise against it since it chrashes way too often. Version 1.0.154.53 is another beast....

@abp667

Your rig rocks...

Chrome is build on Firefox....so they are quite similar
You dont need a defrager if running Windows 7
I use either VLC or Media Player Classic for "everything" media player......but this is all rather off topic
