    Budget Gaming Laptop around 1k?

    Well I ended up choosing an MSI Leopard GL75. I'm pretty stoked with it so far. Still trying to get used to the Windows 7 to Windows 10 transition. Wondering if I can get away with uninstalling the MSI Dragon Center bloatware bullshit or do I really need it? Anyone have any tips for tweaking MSI...

    Budget Gaming Laptop around 1k?

    Good lord.. Still waiting for unemployment money. As soon as it comes in I still plan on purchasing a new laptop. Been fighting with trying to get ahold of them and I may finally be getting paid. I have been very busy and very little time to research my options. I am leaning towards a model in...

    Budget Gaming Laptop around 1k?

    Looking for a good gaming laptop in the 1k range. So I have been out of the PC building and gaming scene for quite a while now. I used to build my own PC rigs for myself, friends, family, etc. However, years ago I chose an off the grid lifestyle, so a laptop is a little more ideal for me. I...

    Budget laptop 800-$900 range with gaming.

    I'm in the same boat, looking for a good gaming laptop in the 1k range. Blue ray player/burner or dvd burner would be great, too, but doesn't seem like any laptops come with them now...

    Anyone still play Guild Wars 2?

    I've been playing since the game came out. I took a 6 to 8 month break from the game at one point when I was too busy to play any games. Personally I think the game has come a very long way from when it was initially released. I keep it interesting by playing a mixture of each game type - PvE...

    Logitech mx 5000 lag Help :(

    Well, at least you were given the Vizio, otherwise there would be grounds to complain. However, that is most likely your problem. Vizio is, in my personal opinion, a waste of money. If you can afford it, investing in a nice Dell monitor would help. I still have my 20.5 in Widescreen Dell monitor...

    G15 newb question

    Oh the switch disables the windows key. Well that might have been useful if I still played FPS games. The black button that switches the LCD apps.. Well, it works, but if I hit it while in-game, I can't get back to my game info on the display.

    Anyone ever see Gran Torino? When Clint Eastwood's son comes over with his wife for his birthday, and they're giving him a gopher, and a phone with huge keys.. Yeah..

    G15 newb question

    Ok so I am totally new to the G15 keyboard. I just picked one up today. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for information on this keyboard and what it can do. For instance, there is a little switch near the screen that I have no idea what it is for. I mostly play...

    Motherboard Problem??

    I have a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Rev 1.1 motherboard that I am currently having trouble with. Yesterday, I turned my PC off to move it to the other side of the room. All I did was disconnect the cables and carefully moved my tower and peripherals, and reconnected them. Now my PC will not power...

    Good internet security software?

    Yeah my ISP is pretty small as well. I just don't want anyone sticking their nose in my business, at least not without a fight. I would like to protect my right to privacy as much as possible, especially in this day and age of uncertainty in the direction of our country. So if anyone else has a...

    Good internet security software?

    I was wondering. I have been having some issues with my ISP lately. They seem to be paying too much attention to me and what I'm doing on my computer. First they send me messages notifying me of increased uploading from my ip address and wanted to "make sure I didn't have a virus" .... Then, a...

    ATI Overdrive clock settings for 4870

    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what would be the best and safest GPU Clock and Memory Clock settings in the ATI Overdrive would be? I just set up fan speed profiles so it's running at about 47c right now. Should I use the auto-tune or not?
