Great work Redline!
As you already have said that review on HD7730 is very informative for most low budget vga buyers in SL .

If you may, I like to suggest you to do a simple review by mentioning way to choose a proper vga card for the budget, Cause there are still most noobs who just look only for huge video ram and do not think of any thing else.

Because? I'm running 4GB with an SSD and I have no issues.

Post by: MPAD on February 11, 2014, 10:50:40 pm
Because? I'm running 4GB with an SSD and I have no issues.
Less RAM means system use the page file (aka reserved free space from the main storage device) , If the storage device (HDD or SSD) is slow , then the entire system will become very slow when the free RAM space runns out.

SO
Almost always a system with a SSD is faster than a system with a HDD even with lesser RAM capacity.
Normally we upgrade RAM up to 8Gb or more before going for a SSD , cause extra 4Gb like RAM is cheaper and more affordable than a SSD.
But it does not mean 8+GB RAM is a must to recruit a SSD to your system, It only depends on the Apps you are running and what are you doing with your PC.

Post by: csm1o1 on February 12, 2014, 11:03:04 am
SSD with paging enabled? well i don't recommend that either. im running my system with no paging.
why i said SSD with 4GB is not recommended is due to below. SSD is still expensive and adding a extra layer of safekeeping to that investment will mean no harm to your system.

Agreed!
System is using page file means , System is cashing more files to the storage.
So it will read and write more data much more frequently to the storage device.
As we know SSDs are not much up to that tasks than HDDs.
So it might age the SSD much faster than usual.

It might drop the lifetime of an SSD from 6 years to 4 years. In 4 years a 120GB SSD will be a joke.

i wouldn't worry about keeping the pagefile on the SSD. i don't, but only because i have 16GB RAM and i don't use even half that much with anything that i do. if i had 8GB or less RAM, i wouldn't worry about keeping the pagefile on the SSD.

the endurance of flash is so under rated. they will live much longer than one would think. 5000 cycles, 10000 cycles seem like a small amount, but the SSD controller is intelligent enough to prevent unnecessary writes to the same flash cell.

check this link out. TechReport is doing an endurance test to see how long - in practice - these SSDs last. by last, i mean, how long before the flash cells wear out and become unreadable.

http://techreport.com/review/25889/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-500tb-update (http://techreport.com/review/25889/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-500tb-update)

basically the Samsung 840 seems to have the least endurance, but that's because it is TLC. but you are good up to 100TB writes. i have the same drive and i've had it for more than a year. (bought it in 2013 January) and i have only written 4.39TB to it. which means, i have 20 years at this rate, before some of the flash cells become unusable. but even then, the controller can do some remapping which the user will only notice after some time.

You have to use MJPEG format. The normal format doesn't work in Vegas but worked for me with PowerDirector.

Anyways, Mirillis is still the best capture software out there.

MJPEG format is supposed to work with every software. The default codec also doesn't work? It's been a while since I used Mirillis but im pretty sure you can find a newer version on KAT.

Also with regard to the video, can you let us know how long can you use a branded power supply? I have been using my Antec PSU for bit over six years. It works fine still, but i bought a new Ryzen system recently, so just wondering whether that's okay for new components.

Probably a noob question! You said to disconnect the LAN cable. Do we have to even if the modem is switched off and relevant plugs are pulled from the socket?
Yes. Disconnect everything. Our ancient copper phone line network doesn't have surge suppressors, so it will carry a surge built up miles away. It might not even be raining in your area when you get hit with a surge.

Also with regard to the video, can you let us know how long can you use a branded power supply? I have been using my Antec PSU for bit over six years. It works fine still, but i bought a new Ryzen system recently, so just wondering whether that's okay for new components.
PSU's have quite a long lifetime, hence most high end models getting a 7 year warranty. 6 years is fine. You should be good for another year or two atleast. The only thing though, approximately drop 5% of your peak wattage per year of use and try not to load it beyond that. So treat your HCG520 as a ~400W power supply - which is still plenty for your system.
