I have an el1333g desktop it has a amd 64x2 2.4 prosscer in how much bigger can i go


Select the "Start Menu." Click to select "Control Panel." This will open a new window with several clickable options. Choose "System and Maintenance," typically located near the top left-hand corner of the Control Panel Click to select "System" from the new list of options Look for the CPU's stock speed as indicated under the "Processor" heading. This is a ballpark, relatively close estimate of your computer's CPU speed, as provided by the manufacturer. Checking the Stock CPU Speed in Windows XP Click the "Start Menu. Right-click on "My Computer." Select "Properties." By default the Properties window will usually be set to the "General" tab, but if the window is set to a different tab you'll need to click on the "General" tab located near the top of the window. Check the CPU rating as listed underneath the "Computer" heading. b> Determining Real-Time CPU Speed Go to CPU Speed Professional's website (see Below) and download "CPU Speed Professional." While other free CPU clocks exist, many are beta programs with glitches and unwanted bugs. CPU Speed Professional is well-known and reputable, receiving the "Vista 5 Star Software Award" according to its website. Install the recently downloaded " http://download.cnet.com/cpu-speed-professional/3000-2086_4-10833139.html " file by double-clicking on it and following on-screen prompts to complete the automated install procedure. Open CPU Speed Professional. Click "Test Your Speed" on the main program interface. A real-time, active measurement of your CPU speed will appear numerically, and CPU Speed Professional will also display your CPU speed on a stylish meter for easy visual comprehension. Get a Faster Processor b> Start by visiting Intel.com (see the Below ) to research and figure out which processor you want. http://www.intel.com/products/processor/index.htm Read the page and click on the links to the different processor families. Once inside the processor families you can look at the specifications and speeds of the processors. There are three main ways of determining the speed of a processor. First is the speed, measured in GHz. The higher the speed (example: 2.4 GHz) the faster the processor. Second is the L2 cache, measured in MB (example: 2 MB L2 Cache). The L2 cache is kind of like the CPU's own RAM; the larger the cache, the faster your computer operation will be. Finally, there is the Front Side Bus (FSB) speed. The FSB speed is the speed that bits of data are fed through the processor. FSB is measured in MHz (example: 1066 MHz FSB). Once you have an idea of the processor you want, continue to step two. Ensure that your processor of choice will be compatible with your current system. You can do this by checking the documentation for your motherboard. Look through the manual to find out what its CPU socket type is (example: LGA775). There can and will be different socket types on CPUs so ensure your processor choices match up with your motherboard before continuing. The socket (or package) type will be listed in the specifications of any processor you look at. Worth noting is that some motherboards also impose a limit for how high the FSB of a processor can be. While a higher FSB processor will still work with a lower FSB motherboard, processors have to go by the speed limit imposed by the motherboard. Keeping this in mind, as long as the socket type is the same on both parts, they will be compatible. Visit Newegg.com (see Below) or a similar computer or electronics store of your choice and nose around the processor section of the site. http://www.newegg.com/Store/Category.aspx?Category=34&name=CPUs-Processors You should be able to find the processor model you are after. Decide on a processor. If you've already done the research suggested in steps one and two, you should have a decent idea of the kind you want. Choose among the models you selected and add it to your cart, ensuring that the socket type of your new processor will match your motherboard. Once purchased, you should receive it within a few days.

Hope this helps.

Bandwidth Explained!


Most hosting companies offer a variety of bandwidth options in their plans. So exactly what is bandwidth as it relates to web hosting? Put simply, bandwidth is the amount of traffic that is allowed to occur between your web site and the rest of the internet. The amount of bandwidth a hosting company can provide is determined by their network connections, both internal to their data center and external to the public internet.

Network Connectivity

The internet, in the most simplest of terms, is a group of millions of computers connected by networks. These connections within the internet can be large or small depending upon the cabling and equipment that is used at a particular internet location. It is the size of each network connection that determines how much bandwidth is available. For example, if you use a DSL connection to connect to the internet, you have 1.54 Mega Bits (Mb) of bandwidth. Bandwidth therefore is measured in bits (a single 0 or 1). Bits are grouped in bytes which form words, text, and other information that is transferred between your computer and the internet.

If you have a DSL connection to the internet, you have dedicated bandwidth between your computer and your internet provider. But your internet provider may have thousandsof DSL connections to their location. All of these connection aggregate at your internet provider who then has their own dedicated connection to the internet (or multiple connections) which is much larger than your single connection. They must have enough bandwidth to serve your computing needs as well as all of their other customers. So while you have a 1.54Mb connection to your internet provider, your internet provider may have a 255Mb connection to the internet so it can accomodate your needs and up to 166 other users (255/1.54).

Traffic

A very simple analogy to use to understand bandwidth and traffic is to think of highways and cars. Bandwidth is the number of lanes on the highway. If you are the only car on a highway, you can travel very quickly. If you are stuck in the middleof rush hour, you may travel very slowly since all of the lanes are being used up.
Traffic is very simply the number of bits that are transferred on network connections. It is esiest to understand traffic using examples. One Gigabyte is 2 to the 30th power (1,073,741,824) bytes. One gigabyte is equal to 1,024 megabytes. To put this in perspective, it takes one byte to store one character. Imagine 100 file cabinets in a building, each of these cabinets holds1000 folders. Each folder has 100 papers. Each paper contains 100 characters - A GB is all the characters in the building. An MP3 is about 4MB, the same song in wav format is about 40MB, the full length movie can be 800MB to 1000MB (1000MB = 1GB).
If you were to transfer this MP3 song from a web site to your computer, you would create 4MB of traffic between the web site you are downloading from and your computer. Depending upon the network connection between the web site and the internet, the transfer may occur very quickly, or it could take time if other people are also downloading files at the same time. If, for example, the web site you download from has a 10MB connection to the internet, and you arte the only person accesing that web site to download your MP3, your 4MB file will be the only traffic on that web site. However, If three people are all downloading that same MP at the same time, 12MB (3 x 4MB) of traffic has been created. Because in this example, the host only has 10MB of bandwidth, someone will have to wait. The network equipment at the hosting company will cycle through each person downloading the file and trasfer a small portion at a time so each person's file transfer can take place, but the transfer for everyone downloading the file will be slower. If 100 people all came to the site and downloaded the MP3 at the same time, the transfer would be extremely slow. If the host wanted to decrease the time it took to download files simultaneously, it could increase the bandwidth of their internet connection (at a cost dur to upgrading equipment).


Hosting Bandwidth

In the example above, we discussed ttraffic in terms of downloading an MP3 file. However, each time you visit a web site, you are creating a traffic, because in order to view that web page on your computer, the web page is first downloaded to your computer (between the web site and you) which is then displayed using your browser software (Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc. ). The page itself is simply s file in the example above (however, a web page is usually much smaller than a music file).

A web page may be very small or large depending upon the amount of text and the number and quality of images integrated within the web page. For example, the home page for CNN.com is about 200KB (200 kilobytes = 200, 000 bytes = 1, 600, 000 bits). This is typically large for a web page. In comparison, Yahoo's home page is about 70KB.

How much Bandwidth Is Enough?

It depends (don't you hate that answer). But in truth, it does. Since bandwidth is a significant determinant of hosting plan prices, you should take time to determine just howmuch is right for you. Almost all hosting plans have bandwidth requirements measured in months, so you need to estimate the amount of bandwidth that will be required by your site on a monthly basis.

If you do not intend to provide file download capability from your site, the formula for calculating bandwidth is fairly straightforward:

Average Daily Visitors x Average Page Views x Average Page Size x 31 x Fudge Factor

If you intend to allow people to download files from your site, your bandwidth calculation should be:

[(Average Daily Visitors x Average Page Views x Average Page Size) + (Average Daily File Downloads x Average File Size)] x 31 x Fudge Factor

Lets us examine each item in the formula:

Average Daily Visitors - The number of people you expect to visit your site, on average, each day. Depending upon how you market your site, this number could be from 1 to 1, 000, 000.

Average Page Views - On average, the number ofr web pages you e4xpect a person to view. If ypu have 50 web pages in you web site, an average person may only view 5 of those pages each time they visit.

Average Page Size - The average size of your web pages, in Kilobytes (KB). If you have already designed your site, you can calculate this directly.

Average Daily File Downloads - The number of downloads you expect to occur on your site. This is a function of the numbers of visitorsand how many times a visitor downloads a file, on average, each day.

Average File SIze - Average file size of files that are downloadable from your site. Similar to your web pages, if you already know which files can be downloaded, you can calculate this directly.

Fudge Factor - A number greater than 1. using 1.5 would be safe, which assumes that your estimate is off by 50%. However, if you were very unsure, you could use 2 or 3 to ensure that your bandwidth requirements are more than met.

Usually, hosting plans offer bandwidth in terms of Gigabytes (GB) per month. This is why multiples them by 31.

Summary

Most personal or small business sites will not need more than 1GB of bandwidth per month. If you have a web site that is composed of static web pages and you expect little traffic to your site on a daily basis, go with a low bandwidth plan. If you go over the amount of bandwidth plan. If you go over the amount of bandwidth allocated in you plan, your hosting company could charge you over usage fees, so if you think the traffic to your site will be significant, you may want to go through the calculations above to estimate the amount of bandwidth required in a hosting plan.

Good luck!

How can i connect a seagate barracuda hard drive to a sony vaio desktop pcv-rz22g? i'm installing an a additional hard drive but can't seem to find a sata connector on the motherboard, so there's no way...


You can't find a SATA connector because there isn't one. That computer was built before SATA drives were widely available. You will need a Serial ATA controller PCI card to connect your SATA drive to your computer, such as here:
http://www.compusa.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1455&name=Serial-ATA-Controllers&
Make sure it is a PCI card and NOT a PCI-Express (or PCI-e) card, as your computer doesn't have any PCI-Express slots either. Here's an example of what you need:
http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3501402&CatId=1455

Also, the Barracuda is probably a 3.0 Gbps drive, but will only run at the slower 1.5 Gbps speeds from the PCI interface cards. Again, it's an age thing. That computer was a top dog in it's day.
