Windows 7: Windows update drivers or 'official'?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-BIT

As long as 2GB is fine for the OP, then so be it. Unless the OP feels like the performance is not enough for his daily tasks, then it's time to upgrade.

This is the first time I have seen a Core 2 Quad paired with DDR400, it's actually a bit complicated to me rather than just buying a G33/G31 Motherboard and 4GB DDR2 ram, Q6600 works well with it.

Yes, I can say it's fine. I don't use a lot of things, or programs that require that much RAM. Though there are some little things that these 2 GB fall short at, but I believe that even with those same two, the detail that could change that is the CL (which I don't know what is), that, as I said before, is 3 and should be 2.5 -If someone knows about this, please...

Can you, @RoasterMen , tell me some about the Core 2 Quad being paired with the DDR400?

This thread turned into a hardware discussion X'D

Man, I know but we started talking about hardware as such, and how components interact, not how drivers affect this interaction. Not saying that we should stay in topic, but yeah...

Ok mate well unfortunately that motherboard only supports 2GB RAM so it is pointless trying to add say 2x2GB sticks. ASRock > 775i65G R2.0

Now I see that does do overclocking unless I am reading it wrong and for what it is worth I think you are better off getting a replacement board that can take more RAM. The core you have will fit quite a few anyway but having said that you have to take a chance on buying a used board and getting Microsoft to agree to let you use that OS key on the new board. If you explain to them the old board has died then they are usually quite good at letting you re-use that key you have for th e board you have now.

Myself have a tester machine with a Q9650 processor and it is flyer but there again the machine does have DDR2 RAM in it and an SSD etc etc

Dell Official Audio Drivers
I wondered if these drivers can be installed without any junk from Dell like the AMD Graphics Drivers can using 7zip? I did get into the installer just a little, and there was an option to "Extract Here", so I'm guessing this is what I want, and then Install from Device Manager as usual? I...
Uninstall a MS FixIt after the official windows update is released?
A while back I installed Microsoft's FixIt for CVE-2013-3893 on my computers to protect against an active zero day exploit. Microsoft billed it as a temporary fix until they released the official solution through Windows Update, which they did. My question is, for this issue specifically, and...

Slower SSD performance with official drivers
Hi, I had been tearing my hair out for the last 2 days trying to work out why my SSD performance was slower than my previous computer (Q9300, GA-EP41-UD3L with no AHCI, 4GB DDR2 RAM) and realised that it was the SATA drivers that came with my motherboard. As soon as I went back to the Windows...
