    Reinstalling Windows 8 on my Dell Venue Tablet. Help!

    Long story short. Have a Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet. I received it second owner from a person who upgraded it to Windows 10. All sorts of issues, no sound, runs poorly. Want to go back to windows 8 but the recovery partition is gone. My question, is the operating system essentially just a desktop...

    Editing .PSD files. Any non-subscription based software?

    So I play Assetto Corsa and race in leagues. One of the fun parts for a particular season is having an option to design a livery for the car you are racing that season. The files are .PSD and I've been told photoshop works like a charm. Of course, recently they've gone subscription based, I...

    Windows Blu-ray Playback software

    Looking for free or inexpensive playback software for windows 10 Blu-ray. I have a drive i just don't have software. I keep seeing 50+ dollar applications which to me is a waste of my money. I don't need anything fancy, but if those are the only choices i might as well sell my drive and cut my...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Thank you for your advice and I 100% agree. A studio without nice monitors is not a studio. These are 100% not studio monitors. For everyone, I ended up going with mackie Cr3's as my local store had them and I couldnt stand my current set malfunctioning. I am happy with them. Very neutral sound...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Looks like the local guitar center didn't have anything to demo. Well, they didn't have anything the guy could figure out how to use on the demo set ups so I got nothing. They have a 45 day return policy so I'm probably going to have them order the Mackie cr4 set and if I don't like them or they...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will head to my local guitar center as I recall them having M-Audio speakers on one of their displays. I'm afraid the build quality of the AV42 isn't as good as the AV40. Also, I thought the Bose were decent. Not great, but for 50 bucks second hand and the size they...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Thanks! Do you find the sound of the companions near the same level as the AV's or the Mackies? Or are they just not comparable?

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    These are the three speakers I'm looking at. I want a plug and play 2.0 set that can be moved if need be. I cannot fit bookshelves with an amp somewhere otherwise I'd do that. I essentially want a solid set of speakers that will last and sound good. I currently use Bose Companion 2 speakers that...

    PC Audio Fluctuating, Appears to be Speakers, Please Advise!

    I appreciate this response. I can safely crack into the case if need be. It hasn't crackled at all, the audio quality is still solid for what these speakers are if you don't look at the fluctuations. I'll see if i can produce any distortion or crackling noises, then we will know the issue for...

    PC Audio Fluctuating, Appears to be Speakers, Please Advise!

    I have been having issues with audio fluctuations on my PC (Windows 10). They are spontaneous, sometimes worse than other times. Last night it was unbearable. An example of the sound fluctuations would be placing a pillow firmly over the speaker, then removing it. Sometimes its only half a...

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    Upon reading other comments, I recommend EVGA G2 650w or the Seasonic X psu's are nice as well. If you want top of the line, BeQuiet! Dark powers would be my choice of PSU. Cheers!

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    Also.. if I can get a 1060 right now for $150 barely used on the forums.. a 480 plus a newer psu (180 plus 40 or so??) I don't think I need to go further.... if I got a new PSU.. I'd pick up a 980 for 220 and call it a day

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    No creig.. I'm limiting my upgrade path because it is not that important, and if I can manage to get a slightly better GPU I'll be happy. Going for a 1060 is the pinnacle of an upgrade for me and I'm only considering it because, why not get the best available. I could go with a 1050 or even a...

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    Awesome deal! But psu swap is not an option, I love that little seasonic G360 and the upgrade is only considered if possible with current PSU. I'll try and hold out for the 1060 deals. They may be pricy but that's an impressive card

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    Thanks for the responses everyone. Looks like I will wait around for a 1060 at the right price. That should be more than enough for us. Cheers!

    GPU for Warcraft @ 1920x1200, 1440?

    I've heard good things about zotac but I personally buy other brands. I can say gigabytes wind force cooler isn't necessarily noisy, but it is generally more noisy than the competition. But it's high performing and is a very good solution. Performance wise they trade blows, I usually lean nvidia...

    GPU for Warcraft @ 1920x1200, 1440?

    I run WoW with an i7 3770K @ 4.2 ghz and a 980 Ti classified at stock settings. 1440p, mostly ultra.. 60 fps locked in most areas. In populated city areas I'll go down to 40's occasionally.. Since a 1060 is about on par with a 980, I'd recommend that, otherwise the RX 480 looks promising and is...

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    Time to upgrade my GF's GPU.. currently an AMD R9 270.. works great and all, but looking for a little more horsepower... the limiting factor? I have a Seasonic G-360 PSU.. Awesome PSU, but low output. I figured a 1060 would work fine, but the RX 480, I have doubts. I'm leaning towards the 480...

    Roccat Sova Gaming Lapboard 139.99 Mech or 104.99 Membrane @ Amazon

    What I'm saying, is that the presence would annoy me. Simple as that. Not that it really messes me up, or makes it unplayable, or is a big deal by any means for a mass of PC owners. But something that costs this amount would generally not exhibit any noticeable input lag

    Roccat Sova Gaming Lapboard 139.99 Mech or 104.99 Membrane @ Amazon

    my guess would be due to the general consensus of input latency that goes with wireless transmitting at a distance?? But I'm sure there is more to it than that

    Hot: Dirt 3 Complete for free at Humble Bundle

    Dirt 3 used to be "Games for Windows live" which ended up breaking the game in the sense of not being able to save. They removed the GFWL part and re-released it, and itplays great. If you like this game and you're into using a wheel, definitely check out Dirt Rally. Much more challenging...

    Cheap Seasonic 550w, 600w and 650w PSUs.

    I'm not going to argue. I don't believe you are the person to point fingers and say that any given person does not know what they are talking about, after the first comment you made.

    Cheap Seasonic 550w, 600w and 650w PSUs.

    Thank you for clarifying, all I recall is that a few years ago they phased out seasonic units, and other manufacturers and started picking up channel well for all their units. Maybe "nothing special" wasn't the right word. I suppose that was my opinion more than anything

    Cheap Seasonic 550w, 600w and 650w PSUs.

    I would much rather have a seasonic made unit than Channel Wells "top of the line". Disassemble a seasonic unit and a channel well unit and if you know what you're looking at, you will realize real quick which is better quality. Corsair ax860i is nothing special

    980 ti $38.76
