    1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? etc Gaming and just general browsing and such. I will definitely be playing Civ VI when that comes out. Also looking to get Mafia 3 and maybe Battlefield One. 2) What's your budget? Are tax and shipping included? I'd say...

    Sempron 3850 Clocks Down at Safe Temperatures

    Well I just thought I would update. I ended up puting in a 120mm fan even though the case doesn't offciailly support it and that seemed to do the trick. What I did is I changed where the hard drive wasa mounted and put a fan where a hard drive would normally be. The reported temps are definitely...

    Kevari A10-7850K Desktop Processor and Dual monitors?

    It should work. I don't see why not. The page from ASRock's site says that it supports up to four monitors.

    Hey guys. I have a cheap HTPC with a Sempron 3850 and a ASRock AM1B-ITX motherboard. Normally, this works fine as I use it mostly just for streaming videos and browsing the web. Occasionally, however, I use it for some light gaming. I've noticed that after about 45 minutes to an hour or so...

    Vinyl Records Are Making a Huge Comeback in 2014

    Really? I'd argue that CDs and vinyl sound nearly identical when both are mixed and mastered the same. I understand from a theoretical standpoint that vinyl has the potential to sound better because it is analog, but I don't think that actually translates to a real world difference in sound...

    Why Are So Many Video Games Broken At Launch?

    People just need to stop preordering videogames. My brother always does that but after getting the Halo Master Chief collection, he's finally convinced not to do that anymore.
