    Recommend me a quality PSU for a college budget?

    Update: EVGA shipped my card out today, looks like they upgraded me to a GTX 670. Will my PSU be enough with my current system and will a surge protector be all I need? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130802

    Recommend me a quality PSU for a college budget?

    Well I've owned the card since December 2012. Luckily it's still under EVGA's warranty so hopefully I can get it replaced without hassle and grab a surge protector and you guys will never hear from me again. Thanks for the help everybody.

    Recommend me a quality PSU for a college budget?

    So I pulled the graphics card out and it fired right up no problem on onboard video. I think the graphics card is the problem here. I put it back in and it went right back to not posting and spinning at 100%. Now I wonder if the card was just dying or if there is something that is killing it.

    Recommend me a quality PSU for a college budget?

    It is just a power strip no battery backup or surge protector. The only other things running off of it is my two monitors- that's it. The only other thing plugged into an outlet in my room is my phone charger. Will post back with findings when my roommate gets off work.

    Recommend me a quality PSU for a college budget?

    I'm going to test my GPU in my roommates computer to see if it's working to rule that out. Other than that, it may be just shitty luck or its my motherboard. I have a 2 year warranty on the mobo through microcenter so if all else fails I can swap that out. Another thing to note is my computer...

    Recommend me a quality PSU for a college budget?

    I'm at a loss here. The house is brand new built in September and I'm running it off a power strip. Actually a different socket from when the first incident happened. Microcenter is currently 3 hours away from where I am at too.

    Recommend me a quality PSU for a college budget?

    Update: I returned the PSU to microcenter and they gave me store credit with no questions asked. I picked up a corsair hx750 this time because it was the best they had and installed it- everything was fixed. I just got back after a week of not using the computer and was running a dungeon in WoW...

    WoW; 4th expansion Mists of Pandaria

    Why does it matter? Most users will be grinding out the levels in a couple weeks time anyhow, you are just prolonging the inevitable at that point. I think it makes complete sense to have the newer greens replace right off the bat.

    WoW; 4th expansion Mists of Pandaria

    One word. Arenas. I haven't given two fucks about PvE since I've been 90. I have a blast getting on with my friends and running arenas and trying to perfect my character. PvE is really lame and has always left a bad taste in my mouth. Too much waiting around/ relying on other idiots to perform...

    Build Refresh, Need Some Advice

    1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? etc Gaming 2) What's your budget? Are tax and shipping included? Would like to keep it around $400ish, $500 if a new PSU is needed. 3) Which country do you live in? If the U.S, please tell us the state and city if...

    For those who bought Haswell. Was it what you expected?

    Would it be smarter to go with a Sandy Bridge/ Ivy bridge setup for cheaper and just overclock it? I'm not concerned with the power consumption, and I probably wont be upgrading for another couple years after that. I play the occasional games, but I'm running Borderlands 2 maxed essentially...

    Best Laptop for ~900?

    Well I'm one of those people who "don't get along well" too much with people at Microcenter, BestBuy, Circuit City, etc. They look at me since I'm 16 and think I was born yesterday, even though I've been bulding PCs since I was like 13. The lady comes up, hardly knowing a lick of english...

    Is this powerful enough?

    That all was my 16th birthday present. I can afford it but would the one I'm using now suffice until I can order my new one?

    Is this powerful enough?

    I don't really have a choice it's been in my rig through about 2 years of upgrades, and I really can't afford to get a new one. I just want to make sure so when I power on, nothing goes wrong.
