    Gaming Issue

    Update, I pulled the plug on an EVGA 850 G2. Got a 9.9 on JonnyGuru, and problem solved. No restarts and everything is running beautifully. Thanks all.

    Gaming Issue

    Been playing around with it, and if I hold the framerate at 60, it won't crash. If I let it go, it heats up to about 69, then crashes. I know it's an older card, but it's always handled everything so far beautifully. 69c should not be too much right? Is this still a power supply issue?

    Gaming Issue

    I was just testing with OCCT and it crashed almost immediately with the graphics and psu test. So, yes, most likely PSU. Upsetting cause this rig is only a couple years old. I don't have another to test, but have been getting random crashes for a few weeks now, hence the reinstall. Looking...

    Gaming Issue

    Hi all. Long time since I posted, but I'm having an issue with some of my Steam games. Mainly it is Skyrim Special Edition. I start a new game, and during the initial opening wagon run, my PC will shut down and restart. I've noticed it does the same thing with Bioshock Remastered, but...

    Anybody try or have one of these? Like the SkystreamX or the like? Any good? I like using XBMC for my media, but would like to stream netflix, hulu, and amazon prime as well. These look like just the thing....

    New Build. Thoughts? Ideas?

    Power supply was 80 shipped. One review I read said it had really solid voltage regulation. That's why I got it. There are better ps's out there, but I've seen more expensive ones where the voltage was all over the place ( Thermaltake).

    New Build. Thoughts? Ideas?

    Yes, I may overclock. The power supply is a Corsair GS700. It got a good review. I'll put one drive in the new system and one drive in the HTPC. And yes, the motherboard was the Z87 Extreme3

    New Build. Thoughts? Ideas?

    My budget is around 1500 give or take. I was up around 2 grand with a core i7 extreme 2100 but thought that was overkill. I'm in the U.S. Up in New England. I could reuse my old case and power supply but it's going on 7 years and don't know if the power supply will last. They're both from Ultra...

Basically all around media center. And now, the specs; Corsair 16 gig 1600 vengeance ram Asus z87...

    Help with PS3 - No signal to tv - Reset didn't work - Troubleshooting

    I had a similar issue with mine. I know you said you swapped hdds. The firmware for the ps3 is stored on both the NAND and the hdd. If either one is corrupted you get no signal, not even in safe mode. I swapped out the hdd for my old 60 gig original hdd and thankfully it worked. However, I...

    Anybody switch from iPhone 5 to Android?

    I just did the opposite. I switched from android to iOS. I love the iPhone 5. I've been an avid android user since the original droid incredible and just my opinion, but android has become more fractured, and with the phones getting bigger and bigger, I just felt like I wanted a phone that...

    Verizon Shared Plans = Massive Rate Increase?

    I had the old unlimited data plan being with verizon for years. The GF and I both have a droid and I looked at the new plan. I switched and got double the data I was allotted, (4 gig), plus free hotspot, plus if I add a tablet, which I will eventually, it's only an extra 10 a month. Grand...

    Thinking about switching back to an iPhone, am I the only one?

    Wow, I just wrote a long post and it got totally deleted. Long story short, I've been with android since the beginning, and it's too fragmented. Google releases a new OS, then it's tested by the manufacturers and they put their bloat on it. Then it's tested by the Carriers and they put their...

    Why Best Buy is Going out of Business...Gradually

    I used to go in there all the time. Then I'd overhear conversations between associates and customers and hear the associates lie to them. I'd see opened box items "Enhanced by Geek Squad" selling as new items. The one that really got me, and soured me forever to BB was when I saw a new PS3...

    Ice Cream Sandwich Face Unlock Feature Compromised

    I kinda wondered what would happen if you got in a bad car accident or something and had to call 911, would it recognize your face if you had a facial or head injury? I'd pass on this technology. It's more of a "Hey, look what my phone can do" sort of thing...

    I'm buying a new TV..get a Samsung with Smart TV..or a Sony with Google TV?

    I have a sammy LED LCD with all the little apps and a broadband connection hard wired to the TV and it takes forever for the apps to load. It's like dialup. The tech is just not there for TV's yet. And updates are few and far between.

    NVIDIA Talks Next-Gen Tegra

    How was I blaming anyone? Nvidia fanboy much? Yes it was one of the first dual core phones there were.... that's why I jumped on it. It's just disappointing that it hasn't caught on like I thought it would. The X2 is nice once you root it.

    NVIDIA Talks Next-Gen Tegra

    I have the Moto Droid X2 which has the tegra 2 and with Gingerbread it's really buggy. The games are nice looking but really the phone needs more than games to keep it competitive. The only game I've looked forward to is Zen Pinball, which I play on the Ps3. They announced it back in July and...

    Steve Jobs Resigns as CEO of Apple

    I'm seeing more and more threads like this. Very few intelligent posts, and alot of useless rants by uneducated trolls. Steve turned the company around and made it innovative and successful. No one can deny that. Wishing death on a man you don't and probably will never know is sick and...

    Scientists Predict Possible Ice Increase in Arctic

    The earth's plates shift, collide, mountains rise and crumble, alot of areas in North America are vastly different than they were even 100,000 years ago. This planet changes. I've seen key phrases like "greenhouse gases" and "fossil fuels" thrown around for years and years. Are we having an...

    android has 5 or more homescreens, but the wallpaper is stretched over them. Android has different screens for the icons, but if you noticed as you scroll from one to another, the icons move faster than the wallpaper. I have a few screens on my droid x2 that have no icons and the wallpaper...
