    Hardware testing

    Hey guys! Sorry to bother with such a simple thread, but I'm looking to get updated information on good testing software. I used to use Orthos back in the day for memory/CPU stress testing, but I'm not sure if using that same program these days would be the best. I went to the sticky...

    AMD Responds to R9 290 Series Performance Variance

    You are obviously trolling just for attention, and since we are calling people names, you are a disrespectful douche. I've been using this site as a my tech news source for years and that's because of the honesty and integrity of the site, Kyle, and the team. Sure there is money in adverts...

    Am I just out of luck? Data loss...

    Tried pretty much everything suggested here with no luck yet. If no one else has any ideas, I may see about professional recovery solutions.

    Am I just out of luck? Data loss...

    Hmmmm maybe I'll try different ports. It could be possible that Windows doesn't recognize it because of this. Any other thoughts are welcome!

    Yes I tried RStudio with no luck. I don't think it's a seagate, why do you ask?

    Am I just out of luck? Data loss...

    So here's the rub. I put a new video card in my machine. I took it apart (it's a microatx) and did alot of cleanup and re-ran cables and so on. I Put the machine back together and plugged everything in and booted up. Install new video drivers blah blah blah... I went later to load up a...

    New Upgrade Advice - Finally that time

    ^ Why I bought it! :D I'll look at a PSU update. I really feel like I replaced it, but I can't check ATM. Yes to the last sentence. I've been putting off the upgrade, and I'm thinking I'll try to wait it out until Windows 8 at this point. Get a good deal through my wife's school on...

    New Upgrade Advice - Finally that time

    This is true... I want to say no to this, but honestly, I'm not sure. It could be. I feel like I upgraded around the same time as when I got the 9600GT. I check it out when I get home.

    New Upgrade Advice - Finally that time

    Eh... At this point financially $500 is the far upper limit. I for sure can probably do like $150-200 for a graphics card. Beyond that, I mean spending $100 more (mobo and 2x4GB) to hit DDR3 8GB RAM isn't necessarily out of reach. Of course to my knowledge, this also requires a upgrade to...

    New Upgrade Advice - Finally that time

    True, however to utilize the 8GB I'd need 1) a new Mobo (current limited to 4GB), and 2) Windows 7. I agree that the vid card upgrade is a nobrainer. It needs to happen. I would hope that a 3GHz C2D would be good enough to be at or above system recommendations. I don't plan on trying to...

    New Upgrade Advice - Finally that time

    Problem with this is that I want to stay in my current case and form factor (MicroATX), which would mean less possible for used. My goal is gaming, but compromised by the form factor and HTPC limitations.

    New Upgrade Advice - Finally that time

    It's been awhile since I've upgraded my HTPC... If it works for you, why change it ya know? Recently I purchased Skyrim and my system JUST squeaked by with enough performance to make it doable. I enjoyed the game and the visual experience enough, but I knew days for my current setup were...

    Unigine Heaven Benchmark with DX11 Tessellation

    But at the least, it's still gonna be better graphically than if it was straight ported. Either way, dynamic or manual, we get better graphics. :cool:
