 It would most definitely be an improvement unless the 6800 is PCI. lol.

 The new card would probably have better and/or more pipelines, pixel
 shaders...etc and the GPU clock speed will be faster.

Guess it will only give some improvement if you game a lot, and even
so the sawtooth cpu is already the bottleneck on the 6200.
keep in mind that 6800 need good Power Supplys..

I agree that you may need to check you power supply to make sure it
can handle it, but gaming is not the only instance where hadware
graphic acceleration is helpful.  Anything graphics/video intensive
will almost certainly benefit.  I am not sure how that argument of the
CPU being a bottleneck is relevant though unless I am completely

Re: I have a Pioneer DVR 115

2011-02-15 Thread peterhaas

 I have a 112D which replaced one that lasted about 6 mos. After 3 or 4
 years of occasional use, it now won't burn CDs, but handles DVDs just fine
 and will read CDs and DVDs fine. I've burned at least 50 DVDs since then
 with zero coasters. I had never had problems with this 100 pack of TDK CDs
 before then. CD burns failed from both iTunes and Toast and I tried
 several. I seem to remember the error stating it didn't recognize the
 media or some such.

CDs ans DVDs use a different wavelength laser.

It is possible, even likely, that CD writing has failed, whereas DVD
reading is still OK.

Sawtooth/Tiger boot problems

2011-02-15 Thread Sean Carroll
The booting process on my Sawtooth has gone absolutely haywire in the
aftermath of some major upgrading. I hope it's OK to post a crash
report here from a failed boot attempt (this particular failure was of
the blue screen and eventual message in several languages to restart
or hold down power button variety). (The apparent to the eye
variations on booting failure have been many.)

At this point, there's no booting at all without holding down the
option key, selecting the main OS (Tiger 10.4.11) volume, and then
booting in safe mode. After trashing what's been put in the Trash (or
not - i think the system will do this on restart anyway), I can option-
boot and select and start up Tiger in normal mode. Here are the files
that appear in the trash after a Safe Boot:

annex.aux
annex.db
filetoken.db
fonts.db
Local.fcache
qdfams.db
System.fcache
User.fcache

I'm just looking for clues right now, not necessarily pinpoint problem-
solving answers (not that I'd refuse any such). I can and will go into
great detail about the upgrading itself in another thread and another
sense later. The thing is - all the new hardware works, and there was
plenty of it. The operation was a success (as was the very first post-
upgrade startup) - and now the patient is ill.

Here's the crash report: (For you experienced decipherers out there -
again, just being pointed in the right direction would be fine. I
promise not to follow up with a dozen requests for clarification. Not
right away, anyway.)

Re: 3rd party wireless pci card for MDD

 re:  Broadcom 4318 modules which I have purchased on ePrey (sic) from
 a Hong Kong-based seller

 Can you share link to a PCI card from China that is known to have
 Broadcom modules?

 I purchased one to test -- it worked great -- then bought 12 more for
 a lab and they all didn't work because they had different mini-PCI
 cards under the same labeled slot.  Ugh.  I know if I can find a
 reliable supplier with Broadcom mini-PCI modules I'd be set... these
 cards were like $8- each... very appealing for a lab.

I have searched ePrey (sic) for cards meeting the basic requirements.

You can, too. Look for Broadcom Mini-PCI 4318 cards which state that they
are intended for various Dell laptops but NOT for IBM laptops.

Here is the present listing for the lowest-cost one (item plus shipping to
the US) ...

http://cgi.ebay.com/Broadcom-wireless-wifi-B-G-mini-pci-card-BCM4318-4318-/170464143721?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0hash=item27b0746969

... it is item number 27b0746969 if the above link doesn't work.

I have purchased at least a dozen such cards from several ePrey sellers
and all have worked.

Right now, there are a number of lots of cards being sold at quite
reasonable prices.

Just key on the description where is says it is Dell-compatible but NOT
IBM-compatible.

I have found that those cards are immediately seen by MacOS X and do not
require flashing or even updating the 802.11 plist.

You will require a Mini-PCI to PCI adapter, too, and also an antenna.

You want a Mini-PCI to PCI adapter which has one antenna connector and,
consequently, one internal cable to the card.

The card I have cited, above, is US$4.40, including free shipping.

A lot of 10 cards can be had for under US$40.
