    OS on the fastest Drive For games, the only improvement is load time. Personally: OS on fastest drive, Games on a 2TB 7200RPM Drive mainly. If it is a new game I intend to play through I will install it to fastest drive for the first playthrough then use STEAM Library manager to move it to...

    ~$200: Powered monitors or bookshelves and an amp?

    I'd go buy a second hand Denon DM37 (or newer DM41 ) with the Denon Speakers. I run a DM37 with some Dali Zensor 1 Bookshelf's and in my opinion that's a perfect pair, but the standard Denon speakers that come with sound good too. P.S The DM37 is the same width as my computer case and sits on...

    6 monitor setup advice

    effectively reduces your bandwidth across the PCI slots. Have a read of your Motherboard manual, that should tell you if your motherboard would do that. BTW, from experience USB GFX cards are horrid, and introduce lag to the mouse and input. Recommend a second Nvidia card.

    Does this type of software exist?

    Not quite the same, but if you installed windows then only installed the software, you could then make an image of your entire windows install. Then if required just revert to that. Edit.. You might find that the software detects installed hardware to work out if your workstation is different..

    Need a midrange 4K screen with lots of real estate

    What do you mean "more real estate"? If your 27" is currently 4k and you move to a 40" 4k, you are not gaining anything. Infact your main criteria of high ppi has just dropped drastically...

    Forum threads are not proof of anything, goto any product(anything) page and you will see hundreds of reviews bashing the product for defects/problems issues. The thing is, yes cheating may be more rampant on pc, but in the last 22 years of pc gaming i have managed to avoid cheaters for the most...

    PC Gaming Too Expensive, Switching to Consoles, so long [H]

    Athlon II X4 and Phenom II X4 still good enough

    My old AMD X3 system with 4GB of RAM held up really well, as someone further up the thread noted, what killed it is the ability to play Youtube at HD resolutions, it would play but would randomly pause and wait, or just not play at all.

    EU passes the "link tax"

    Can we put the political BS to one side for the time being... I wonder a few things about this Law, How does it affect Adverts for one? An Advert is a link to a site that the maker of said site is paying for, does this mean that it is exempt? Or does the site have to pay the advertiser as...

    Pc in a desk build

    The only one I have really seen is the video by Linus Tech Tips. Are you going for a glass top? Are you getting is premade? Or buying second-hand? Basically, the size is dictated by the glass you can get, and or the space you have, a standard 150cm long desk would be more than enough length...

    Microsoft Criticizes FCC Broadband Report

    But that seems rather simple to setup, especially for an isp that provides a router, put say a 10 meg file on router, put some software on said router to detect least usage periods and have that file uploaded to one of your servers which logs the connection speed in a DB, the address and serial...
