Thanks for getting back to me. I may just need to
get up a little earlier and get logged in to hold my
place. Never worry about spelling with me. I make no
bones about it I don't spell very well; I would never
call the kettle black.
You have obviously somthing
going on with other stocks.
I do have another ?. Do
you ever use your margin? I have once but am not real
comfortable with using it becouse of the risk.
My last computer was a Gateway, I know one of the
techs and you should get straight info from them,
although perhaps confined to what they offer. For an
unbiased review, tips and best prices for video cards,
start with C-Net. Run a seach (top right corner) within
CNET to find a current review of all videocards. The
Winmag site is another place to visit for reviews. Both
offer very insightful info, things you just wouldn't
think about on your own.
This is just one page
you should visit, but it's propbably out of date by
now. Do some exploring. CNet's a treasure trove-
Anybody have an opinion on how much longer BTGC
will go without getting mentioned in all the recent
newstories on "Top X Biotech Companies"? What gives? We all
know BTGC's customary 25 % annual growth, one of the
few profitable biotechs and now taking a run. WHat
Matrox is the name of a Canadian company that
makes excellent video cards. They are a bit
conservative and thus tend not to be "at the bleeding edge"
speed wise, but they make very high quality, fast
cards. Any search on the WEB should give you some sites
that carry their cards or go to www.matrox.com for
info and their online store ($100 to $200
Video cards are easy to change(just unplug old one and
plug in the new one). Cost effective? For pure
internet use, probably not. If you use MS Office programs
or similiar, it will speed things up if your
existing card is not a high end one. Also remember that if
you have and older system (ISA or PCI video) you will
not be able to use a fast Matrox Mellennium G400 (AGP
style video card).
If unsure ask Gateway to tell
you what type of video cards your system will
Hope this helps.
Thanks, linac, that's the point I was trying to
make... RAM increases are #1 up to 64MB, but after that,
everything I've read points to further increase (to 128)
being marginal unless you've a more demanding OS.
That's why I suggested nowmac check into upgrading his
BTW- I've an 8mb Matrox Millennium,
and the latest drivers, while adding nice options to
video display, seem a bit buggy.
I overlooked your question about when BTGC would
remain above $20. I don't like making predictions
because of all the variables. All I can say is that Fass
is obviously proving the bashers wrong with each
passing day. My target before the rotation of $$ into
biotechs was high $20's. I may have to revise that. :-)
