Honestly, I feel very, very confident Zambezi, these first chips, coming in Auguest/September, will compete greatly with Sandy Bridge, there's no doubt in my mind. I've studied quite a bit, both...

AMD says there's a small bug, they weren't able to achieve, at least not consistently, the clocks they needed. Because these chips are meant to take on Sandy Bridge, they had no choice but to wait a...

I think your second issue should be dealt with first. Try your best to free up at least 20GB of space, and see what difference it makes.

If you absolutely cannot free up the space, can you at...

Of course, the average user posts on facebook, steals music and looks a porn, all of which can be done on a high end tablet.

This is why I'm slightly leaning toward a PSU issue. Also, those cards normally run that hot, that's actually not bad for that type of card.

Everything else looks normal. At this point, you're...

You need to describe what you did, and how it failed. For example did you drag & drop to the disc, and Windows simply wouldn't write it? Did it throw an error? etc etc
