comment Should I get integrated graphics if I already have a dedicated GPU?
Integrated graphics outperforms a $40 graphics card? Stop the presses! Anyway it doesn't apply in this particular user's case, since the GTX460 is roughly 7 times as powerful as the HD 5450 (Just based off a random benchmark list videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php)

comment Does the advanced format tool bundled by manufacturers actually do anything which mkntfs doesn't?
Yes, it doesn't matter how you format it (ext, ntfs, fat, etc), all that matters is that the partition itself was created on a 4KB boundary. Sector size is something else, and 4KB should probably be the minimum sector size, but bigger might be better for performance reasons -- You'd have to do more research, I'd probably just use whatever the defaults are.

It's really really hard to compare sub-pixel rendering with a highly compressed JPEG :/

comment Basic video editor for AVCHD Lite files?
Good idea. Do you know a program that can remux? Only downside is that VirtualDub is not a very good editor...it's a huge hassle to cut clips, move them around, transition, etc.

This doesn't answer this question. It answers another question I asked that mysteriously disappeared though.

comment Stop Firefox from opening Add-ons dialog after every update?
Something strange happened...I asked two separate questions. The other one disappeared, but Psychoholic answers that other question, not this one. Maybe some moderator didn't read carefully enough and merged them?

Pretty sure it's included in Office 2003 as well, not 2007 only

comment 16GB RAM. Is it OK to turn off virtual memory?
If data in your RAM is degrading, your entire machine will be unstable, and you need new RAM. In normal use, RAM should be as reliable or more reliable than a hard disk. (I've had more HDD failures than RAM failures personally).
