    I Bought a 6900 XT Today!

    I've attempted for the last hour...get the the review order page and it always boots me back to a 503 error and then back to shipping confirmation. Gave up.

    Core i9 10980Xe

    The OEM Tray version is actually shipping from B&H. I still wouldn't buy it though at $1,099.00

    5700 XT Anniversary Edition -$369.99

    I know a lot of people aren't a fan of the reference design cards but cheapest I see right now for an Anniversary Edition card for any collectors out there. Regular version can also be had at $349.99...

    Any routers that can get close to gigabit on wifi?

    Recently just switched from Spectrum to Fios Instant 750/750,(not quite gigabit but getting there) and it seems my Asus RT-AC68U maxes out at 450/450 on the 5GHZ band. Wanted to know if this was the limit of more current routers as well. I'm pulling well over 750/750 when plugged in.

    SFF 8643 to PCI-E Intel 750

    The Asus option actually comes out to cheaper but I would probably need to modify the bios just to enable the feature. The guide would be appreciated (y)

    SFF 8643 to PCI-E Intel 750

    I'm using an ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition, but didn't know the hyperkit was locked down in any way so that's definitely a good advice. Would the SSD mount directly onto the adapter? This is definitely interesting.

    SFF 8643 to PCI-E Intel 750

    I should have probably picked up the PCI-E version but I got a decent deal on the 2.5" version of the Intel 750. My motherboard has neither a SFF8643 port or a M.2/U.2 slot. I'm looking for a mini-sas to pci-e adapter but wanted to see if anyone has actually had any luck with one. The only one...

    3-5 day call to arms for Rosetta@home (CPU's)

    Thanks. This was pretty helpful. I set it for 5 days worth of work which came out to about 150 WU. Hopefully that'll be enough. Went up to 4.7. Thanks for the advice.

    3-5 day call to arms for Rosetta@home (CPU's)

    Just started up Rosetta but a total noob at this. Joined the [H] team and got the client running and it seems to have picked up work. Does CPU clock speed make a significant difference in Rosetta? Right now I'm running a 4930k at 4.5 but can bump it to 4.875 if I lower Ram frequency to 1600mhz.

    Yet another Asus rma horror story

    I've had no luck with Asus cards either. Tried to get my Asus 280x fans replaced or just buy a new one from Asus but they couldn't even do that. In the end, I sold it and got a MSI 780ti. That ended up dying and MSI sent me a 980ti gaming 6g. Maybe I lucked out but it makes me sad that you had...

    Sprint Loses Bid To Dismiss $300M N.Y. Tax Fraud Lawsuit

    I'd agree here. Masayoshi Son will probably eat the fee. The only thing that's going to be footed to the customer most likely is that they will start paying the tax. I'm more surprised John Legere isn't having a field day with this on twitter.

    My Gigabyte GTX 680 is taking a dump - what to buy?

    A single 780ti isn't far off from a 980. With the right vbios they can clock fairly high. Of course, power consumption goes up too. If you're lucky you can try to get the B-stock 780ti Kingpin editions for less than $200 from EVGA. But for $600 I'd go with the 980ti.

    Wow that's unfortunate. You should update your seller preferences to block him as well as set a filter to stop people with unpaid cases from bidding.

    390 or 970

    Other than the model with the stock blower fan, I've found nothing to be a great deal. There are many used ones out there at a great price but I'd rather just go to Microcenter down the block and pick something up there. That said, I appreciate all your help guys. Going to pick up one of the...

    Is the Nexus 6 still worth getting?

    Seems OOS everywhere. It'll probably be back if you wait. Only thing that is not really on sale but has a promotion is the Moto X Pure with 20%+10% bonus "cash" on jet.

    My Gigabyte GTX 680 is taking a dump - what to buy?

    Does this only happen in CS:GO? Did you try verifying the game's integrity cache? I've had the same issue and that fixed it if not temporarily. I asked the same question yesterday regarding the 970 vs 390. Consensus was at >1080P, the 390 is more ideal vs the 970 as they're similarly priced but...

    evga gtx Titan

    See yours ended at $405. I have one to sell as well and hopefully I'll get that. They're great cards but honestly I feel like other people can use them to their full potential more than I will.

    Overclocking - can you klil your card

    I pushed too much voltage with my 7970 for a very long extended period of time. Replaced it with something better a year ago but just put it back in another systen and it artifacts like no other. There may have been other factors but the likely culprit is overvolting.

    390 or 970

    It works now that I am on PC. It didn't work on my phone for some reason. I was looking at the MSI model but at that price I should look at the ASUS and others. Seems like a majority here think the 390 is the way to go.

    390 or 970

    It's not the thermal paste. It's most likely from years of overvolting when it had a waterblock on it. The link doesn't seem to work for me.

    ASUS Maximus V Forumla/Extreme Official Support Thread

    Might not be the right thread to ask in but I still have this board in one of my computers. I can't for the life of me get it to upgrade to Windows 10. Gets to about 25% install and then freezes up. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that works great.

    PSU for Sapphire R9 390

    EVGA SuperNOVA G2 Gold 750W for sure. The 10 year warranty and customer service are great. The only complaint I had were with the cables but I think they changed it with the newer batches where instead of a 6+8 pcie cable they give you a 8+8.

    MSI-GE70 Video Card Upgrade - Looking for advice

    If this does indeed take an mxm card there's no guarantee of compatibility. Your other option would be a diy external gpu or a solution thats similar. I know msi had some dock of some sort but I'm unsure if the ge-70 is a compatible model.

    Replace (2) R9 280 3GB in SLI with WHAT???

    Not very specific here. What do you plan on using the new cards for? Sure there are better cards but 2x 280s aren't that bad at all.

    780ti vs 970 vs 290x

    They're all about equal. I'd give it to the 290x though. An extra gig of ram and still driver optimizations and better preliminary dx12 support.

    Wireless extender help.

    Not sure about other extenders but mine requires an Ethernet be connected to the router and the other end to the extender. It has its own ssid and password but essentially acts as a wireless router. You may want to try a better wireless router first.

    First AMD Card in Years

    On nvidia boost kicks in when you need more core clock. On ati however I've found that it just stays at the advertised boost clock regardless. Either way, afterburner is one of the standard softwares for oc. I prefer it to sapphires tri-x software.

    U2715H - Acceptable backlight uniformity?

    QNIX monitors aren't without QC issues; Backlight bleed and on some occasion dead pixels, though definitely not as bad as what you have. EIZO on the other hand I've never had problems with in regards to their IPS panels.

    Minimum Card to run GTA5

    For $200 you can probably get an r9 290. Its not that much worse than a r9 290x but if you'd be willing to spend $20-30 more you can probably get a 290x. The 4GB of memory should help in GTA5.

    MSI Makes Desktop Gaming Graphics Mobile

    Having owned laptops with an mxm based graphics solution, this seems to be the problem. Most of it I would attribute to problems with cooling as the heatsink compared to desktop counterparts don't even compare. With Asus announcing its "water-cooled" notebooks, it may be a step in the right...

    Need help choosing a new monitor

    You should definitely get something 120hz+ if you play fps. On the low end is the asus vg248qe. If there's a decent sale, the benq 144hz monitors are worth a look. G-sync supportee monitors will cost a little more and seeing how you do have an nvidia card it may help. The Korean overclockable...
