    Actually I am not entirely new to backups but I have always had this mind block about backing up

    I have several back up programs--GFI and AOMEI. And a I had a backup scheme set up under Win 7. But having upgraded to Win 10 I need to revise and perhaps create a whole new back up.

    I have my main system on an SSD and several partitions on a separate hard drive.

    So...My first inclination is to do a system back up with AOMEI but I'm not sure how extensive that will or should be. I just want to be able to restore the system to the last good state if a virus or a bug takes it down.

    Now I am operating under the assumptions that setting a 'system restore point' will do the same thing. Is that correct? At which point creating a system back up with a third party app seems overkill and unnecessary. Is that correct?

    As for the rest, most of my data (and some apps) are on the partitions. If I do a partition back up, AOMEI doesn't seem to give me the option to only back up parts of it. Iddeally I'd like to back up certain files, call it drive "F full" and then set up a differential or incremental back up that will run once a week to catch new or changed files. Does this sound like a good plan?

    I think GFI does mostly the same things that AOMEI does except for the system backup (although it will back up registry and user settings) but AOMEI seems easier to use.

    Any help,advice, corrections or cautionary tales will be much appreciated. I could use some schooling in this regard and welcome all input.

    Newbie, looking for new graphics card.

    I am currently having problems with my 4870s noise.
    In my honest opinion, its just too damn loud.

    Getting to the point, i am looking for a new video card that is
    • Quiet/silent
    • Decent power
    • around 120 dollars or less.
    • Dual dvi outputs for 2 monitors
    • Easy/Low maintenance
    • Not a puzzle to install
    Im going to buy a new video card very soon, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Core2Duo E6300 - Overclocking for newbies

    Hey HeUeR..

    I started this thread wondering if there was anyone willing to help newbies (like me) in the whole overclocking thing, in order to learn how to OC the Core 2 Duo E6300 processor with a step-by-step guidance.

    Even though this thread has been read over 6.000 times, it is not very useful (in my opinion) since the discussion has been made on overclocking the Intel Core2 duo E6300 processor on the Intel D946GZis motherboard.

    So, HeUeR, could you please post -in a step-by-step guidance- how you overclocked yours, in order to help others newbies and to make this thread more interesting...*Rockout :rockout:

    Many thanks and please post some pictures if you can... *Toast :toast:
