Posts I've Made
Posted 13 Aug 2013Thanks for the advice. It seems as though we'll have to balance cost with future-proofing.
Posted 13 Aug 2013I had a look at the i5-4670 ($220) and an Asus Z87-PLUS LGA 1150 ($160). Prices are from newegg.
It doesn't add too much to the cost and I'm sure the extra performance will make it worthwhile anyway.
I noticed that there's a 700W power supply in your example build, would something less powerful suffice?
Posted 12 Aug 2013The processor and motherboard are wrong. Intel's moved on to their 4th gen cores - Haswell. You should be looking at those, the supporting motherboards, and a new fan (the stock fans are dinky).
Also I would avoid buying memory on Ebay. You have no idea where its from or what its been through.. avoid the headache and get it straight up.
Is there a case that needs to be purchased?
Is the powersupply big enough, or has the right connections, for the motherboard/video/cpu?
Thanks for the quick reply.
We were looking at the older i5 to save some money, but I guess the new generation isn't that much more expensive. Ill spend some time looking into a different motherboard, too.
I am using the eBay prices as a reference, and will probably end up buying what I can locally. I've had problems with ram before, and would not wish that situation on anybody...
That bundle looks pretty awesome, though. I might have to consider going with that instead.

Glad I could help
I have just discovered that the behaviour I described in my previous post seems to be random. Sometimes closing and reopening the second form is not a problem. At other times, it is! (About 50% of the time.) You may not be able to reproduce the bug. It may be my system. Should something be reset or disposed when a form is closed maybe?
Wow, it's been a while since I've been here!
I'm sorry to say that I've just about forgotten everything that I knew about VB since I posted this tutorial, and really can't be of any help.
I suggest you start a new thread about the problem and see if someone else who actually has a clue can help you. Feel free to refer to my tutorial or use information from it.
Once again, I am sorry I can't help. Good luck
