    Just realised. The 4Gb single channel DDR2 800mhz memory in my Core 2 rig scores higher than yours. (7.2 vs 7.1)

    The cache on the Q9650 must really help.

    Sadly. Ram can't be upgraded due to the nVidia 630i chipset.

    Yeah that was why I said that the amount of ram wasn't what was giving the score at all since I have 16GB of it in dual channel setup, just down to a limitation of the memory really.

    Still though having 16gb means that I don't have to keep a swap file on my SSD since even on my most ADHD of days I would be hard pressed to go anywhere close to using half that RAM during my day to day use, but like I said for work VMWare can eat that up handily enough to create a network for me to mess around with.

    I mean that's why I said I wouldn't really go for upgrading the processor in my current machine again, while it's good for what I do with it the major bottle neck which has to be taken care of is the fact that the core of the PC is a 2005 piece of hardware which yeah... it's a decade old, holds up rather well with the bits of life support I've given it like the nice cosair PSU to power the 760 and gift me overclock voltage for the machine, but really the next thing which will be going into my case here will be a new motherboard and processor I think.

    Have a few k in completely disposable cash right now though, and I'm trying to weigh up if I want to either use it on traveling, a PC or just hang onto it and keep saving for the down payment on a house.

    on 17 February 2017

    Yeah. VM is a memory hog.

    Still. You would think with you running in dual-channel memory and me in single channel memory and with you having 4x the amount of DRAM, you should be able to get a higher score than I do on that test. :P

    For the majority of tasks there is not much of a perceivable difference between the Core 2 Quad and my 3930K, it's only demanding things that it starts to show it's limitations in.
    My 3930K overclocked to 5ghz is able to outbench Intels $1000 i7 6850K Hex core at stock too and give the 8-core 6900K a run for it's money, so it's not like there isn't a big difference there.

    But for most games, facebook, email... The Q9650 is enough to be honest.

    So unless you need more performance today, I would keep saving for a house, some things in life should be prioritised. :P

    Hey man, how's life?


    Pretty terrible, today is the 1 month anniversary of my partner of 9 years (wife for 6) cheating on me and us separating,

    On moving my belongings back to my family home and loading them unto the attic here i absentminsedky was using a kadder and managed to catch 6 fingers in between metal as I closed it down, 7 hours in A&E and I now look like Im giving "live long and prospers" to all but the reality is my mind wants to kill the majority of people I walk passed on the street, which.. yeah

    I'm goimg to counselling over it all because aye, my mind is in a worst state than my broken hands,

    Oh yeah! and my former kandlord is a stupid old lady bag who wants to retain our deposit based on a pair of dirty curtains and a sink that wasn't old lady clean levels and is saying she wont give a reference if we dont agree, got her to shift the back and forts into email at least which while sore for me to type I have proof that she is 100% in the wrong,

    That isn't even about the cash... both myself and my now Ex are not badly off with separate healthy finances, but Im just sick of things pushing now and want to push back and say fucking no.

    This should probably be a pm rather than a wall post but yeah.. this is obvoiously why Im posting less on here, broken heart and broken hands.

    on 10 February 2017

    That's pretty harsh man. Hope you can get past all this. I wish I had some advice.

    on 12 February 2017

    Thanks Coktoe, appreciate it really.

    To be honest I'm past the worst of it now that I'm free from a relationship based on lies there, that was the worst place I had ever been, from the point where my common sense knew that there was lies in the house up until the point where I got the proof that she fucked a guy I got maybe... 2 hours of sleep at most per night, couldn't eat... couldn't think about anything else.

    The thing is she started having arguments with me about trust issues that I had, that I should have trusted her more and every time I asked her any questions about things it was the basis for another argument which really had no right to exist, if that makes sense.

    But yeah, while now I am sorting myself out and getting my life (and fingers) back on the right track the main thing is I'm not tied onto a lying cheating partner now so I'm in infinitely a better place now than when I was with her.

    Doesn't mean it doesn't hurt like fuck at times to think about it (given that I took the ultimate step of distrusting her and left a device in the house to record audio when I went to work, so yeah.. got to hear the lovely sound of my wife inviting another man into our home, that is going to take a long time to be able to forget hearing her voice that day) Still... at least now I know, if I hadn't found out there I would have been in such a worse place and would well have not found out about it.

    It's like there has been a death in the family though, my Nephew is 10 years old, telling him that he no longer has an Aunt was strange since she has been here his whole life, was strange, my mother losing her daughter has hurt a fair bit too, which of course having someone hurt my other members of the family makes me resent my wife even more than just having hurt me.

    on 12 February 2017

    Well, it sounds like you're on the right track to recovery. I'm going to say this as well, and please forgive me if I'm overstepping my bounds. It's probably good that you had misgivings to your relationship prior to it's ultimate outcome. While much less involved and intimate, I've been there myself, and found that the tempering of expectation helped me get past a similar event. Regarding the landlord situation from your prior post: Do you have a governing body ( rentalsman ) in Ireland that can mediate and judge on such disputes? I would assume (hope) that you do. I know it can be hassle, and sometimes just taking the kick to the balls is easier, but look into it if you feel it's worth it.

    on 13 February 2017

    Yeah completely Coktoe with regards the way the marriage had started to go, every normal thing was the attempt at a start of an argument about trust just to try to prevent me being able to ask anything about some of the strange things she was doing.

    In terms of recovery like, for me I wasn't just sad that I had lost my loving caring wife (which she really was for many years) but more a case of coming to the realization that the loving caring wife in my head would not have been capable of doing such a thing to me, so as such part of the image I had of her in my head... was really only ever in there, the reality of it was she was just a completely normal human being capable of being a dickhead to those around her just like everybody else.

    We have a tenancy board here alright which safeguards both tenants and landlords, the thing is right now I've got 350 of the 500 deposit which I'm perfectly fine with, but the way in which she asked us to vacate the property at the end of our leash could potentially end up being illegal if she ends up putting it back on the market for rent rather than for sale, so I'm just hanging back now to see what she does next with the property, if I see it going up for rent then I'm going to hit back, not for the 150euro but for compensation which could be anything up to a couple of thousand, so would rather just chill and wait for her to do that instead of going after just 150.

    Thanks for the bits of advice though, and even when you said "I wish I had some advice" sometimes just someone asking how stuff is, can be a great way to let a person spew out the shit going on inside their head... even if it goes nowhere beyond my wall here, it's still not inside my head anymore. (although that sounds like when I put something out I forget it lol, not quite that daft haha) but hope you get what I mean here. I appreciate the vgbanter.


    on 13 February 2017

    Oh wow, you've been through a lot recently. Hard to even imagine what dealing with all of that would have been like. Sounds like things are getting better from now on though at least.

    Hey, why you left the discord server D:

    it says you left the server, you could have just logged off or closed browser tab (if you were using the browser)


    Did I ever mention hating discord yeah? I can just click that link again though and join if I'm feeling chatty some evening, I'll be honest mate, bit of a rough time here right now, I'm normally a lot less... "cutty" sounding but figured I could use a chat to some of the lads from here to cheer me up tonight.

    Thanks for it!
