    Steam Link $2.50

    YMMV, but I use the steamlink as a full remote desktop/pc streaming device. I have my PC setup in the garage while I use a steamlink in the living room and master bedroom. I use virtualhere with the steamlink to share my xbox one wireless adapter, wireless mouse and keyboard in the living room...

    Faulty? With XFX R9 295x2 dual 4K, the secondary monitor flickers intermittently

    Had a similar issue with a Radeon 7950. My troubleshooting led to the memory down clocking at idle being the issue. If I left a video or game running on that secondary monitor the flickering or random black screens never happened.

    2x 280x+ 7970

    If this is also your main PC/gaming system (not overclocked) then I'd recommend getting a 1000w power supply like the new EVGA supernova's with 10yr warranty. If its a dedicated mining system that isn't going to be used for any other purpose, a good 850w power supply, like Corsair, should be...

    It makes more sense to buy TVs than monitors

    I'm going to partially agree as I currently have a 55" W900a. I'm not sure it absolutely destroys any PC specific display (My Dell ultrasharp is still really good when I'm at my standing desk) but I do find this TV has many more gaming related features than many other PC specific displays on the...

    It makes more sense to buy TVs than monitors

    I play on a Sony KDL55W900A. It's a great PC gaming TV for an LCD (Mostly used Panny Plasma's in the past). Very low input lag when set to game or graphic mode, and using impulse motionflow mimics lightboost but @ 60hz so motion blur is vastly reduced.

    The Elder Scrolls Online Beta Expanding

    I shared much of your opinions after playing (8-10hrs) back in November. I've changed my tune recently after giving it another shot and spending much more time in game. The Dev's appear to be listening to complaints/suggestions and are actively making positive changes. They just added game...

    Dell P2314H ICM Profile

    I would be interested in this as well. I've seen the P2414H profiles so not sure if those could be modified somehow for the P2314H. I'll report back in this thread if I find anything elsewhere, if you could do the same that would be awesome.

    Powerline Networking

    The ones I've worked with in the past just need one hooked up to a router or switch, then the rest can be placed wherever throughout the house. You just need to pair all the ones throughout the house to the one connected to your router or switch. The manufacturer's website should have an FAQ or...

    Corsair AX860i dead after i month and can't raise Corsair!

    I have a similar experience going on right now with my PSU RMA through Corsair and I'm only a few hours away from their office in California. They've never responded to my inquiries within the ticket (not like I was impatient and only waited a day, it was 6 business days on the longest comment...

    EVGA Backstock sale

    Considering these are 1yr warranty and have no accessories, these prices are way too high. Pretty much all of these items, spend an extra $20 on Amazon to get a new retail product with 3yr warranty, free games + step up options.

    DIY Phase Water Chiller

    780 reference cooler noise

    I gotta say I was skeptical of the 780ti reference blower cooler after experiencing the 290x's reference blower cooler and the differences are huge. The 780ti reference cooler is so much better and a great deal quieter when the fan is moving above 50%. With the 290x if I set the fan above...

    Xbox One is Significantly Weaker: Do you care?

    If you do the bulk of your gaming on PC like I do, then the issue really comes down to which console offers the best overall features for your money that are important to you. Even though the PS4 is going to obviously be the more powerful console, you can't discredit that many people like...

    Left handed gamer who DOESNT use "WASD" layout

    I know you picked up a mouse already but just a heads up to any other left handed gamers out there. The Razer Naga Left Handed was just recently released and available on Amazon. Tilt wheel included which surprised me. Just bought a few since left handed mice are hard to come by and typically...

    Left handed gamer who DOESNT use "WASD" layout

    That mouse was discontinued about 3yrs ago. Every online retailer including overstock are out of stock/discontinued for that item. It was a good mouse, I went through three of them. The buttons eventually wore out or the wireless became flaky.

    Left handed gamer who DOESNT use "WASD" layout

    I am basically exactly the same however I'm not naturally left handed. :) The last good left handed mouse with a tilt wheel was the Logitech MX610 Left handed version. I know you said no Razer's and it needs a tilt wheel but the Razer Taipan meets all other requirements and its what I use...

    Final Fantasy XIV Official Release Thread

    I might be up for joining a Hardocp community guild in FFXIV if ones created and friends are allowed in. Myself and a handful of friends have been MMO hopping it seems since we moved from DAoC & lost interest in WoW after many years of playing.

    Brands that offer the best warranty policies??

    PS4 is even better engineered than XBOne

    I could be wrong but I think the replaceable hard drive in the PS4 is a 2.5" notebook style drive which would rule out the 3-4TB mechanical. If it will take a 3.5" drive then I agree, however I'm thinking about picking up a 2.5" hybrid drive at an attempt to get the best of both words...

    Sim City Beta

    I like the game thus far even though it feels like it's being geared more toward the casual/social gaming crowd. Jumped on the $40 amazon preorder myself and seems like it'll be worth it for that price.

    Weird issue with new 580gtx SLI setup

    Just setup a new 580gtx SLI configuration and ran into a weird issue. If I have my SLI bridge connected to one set of the connectors on the cards, I can run games in windowed SLI just fine (Confirmed load in Afterburner) but once I go fullscreen I get flashing colors with horizontal lines. I...

    5870 + Battlefield BC2 Artifacting

    I currently have an XFX 5870 and have found that if I set the in game MSAA settings to 4x I get artifacts on various spots in the game. If I set things to 2x or 8x everything seems just fine. There is obviously an issue with either the game or ATI's drivers in this respect.

    Overclocking my new Q9550 on an Abit IP35 Pro

    When I had my 65nm quad, my PWM's were typically at 70-75C load. This is with a small fan over the northbridge, fan over pwm's and using the heatsink bolt mod for this motherboard. The same setup with my Q9550 is showing a temperature around 50C load on PWM's. Everything is cooler all around...

    Overclocking my new Q9550 on an Abit IP35 Pro

    My old 65nm quad was able to reach 466-475 fsb on my IP35 pro but with my new Q9550 I can only hit around 440-450. I have my MCH at 1.48V but my VTT is only at like 1.13 I'm not sure if you need so much VTT pumped into your chip, I'd recommend putting more volts into the MCH and adding a fan...

    Ordered AIW X800XT

    Get yours from Dell Small Business? Don't think it was advertised anywhere on the "Hot Deal forums" but yesterday Dell SB had 25% off the ATI AIW X800 XT (AGP) + a stackable 10% off, free shipping, and $50 manufacturer rebate. Living in CA, I had to pay tax which sucked but my total came...

    So BFG 5900nu or Powercolor 9700pro or Sapphire 9800pro?

    I ended up buying a 5900 for $180 shipped. The reason the prices are more expensive is because I have to pay for CA sales tax. Not many out of CA stores with wonderful feedback ratings that had these type of deals. I wish Newegg and others would move out of CA and into oregon. :)

    So BFG 5900nu or Powercolor 9700pro or Sapphire 9800pro?

    Yeah I'm thinking the same at this point. Maybe upgrade my main card next year when the NV40 or R420's are down in price.

    So BFG 5900nu or Powercolor 9700pro or Sapphire 9800pro?

    Well I'm building a second system. I don't necessarily need to upgrade my 9700pro. Was just curious if the $70 difference was worth getting a 9800pro over the 5900nu. If I were to spring for the 9800pro, I'd put my 9700pro in the second system. I'm leaning toward keeping my 9700pro and...
