    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Speaker Set - $124.99 @ BB

    Little irrelevant but Amazon is having a sale for logitech products and the Z623 is $90. Would you guys consider it a good alternative to the Promedia at that price?

    32"@4K affordable class: Acer B326HK, Asus PA328Q, BenQ BL3201PT

    Dang I was hoping a 32 inch monitor would do better at 100% scaling... I feel that 28 inch at 150 is a lot of wasted space for me.

    Warm/Hot - HP ZR2740w 27" 2560x1440 Monitor ($349) / Refurb

    I ended up buying a new opened box from Microcenter. No dead pixels and looks great out of the box. 3 warranty and 2 more years of warranty for just 60$ more isn't too bad.

    [H]ardOCP & ASUS GeForce GTX 660Ti DirectCU II Giveaway

    New and beefier DCII cooler with extra heatpipes will provide better cooling. Very efficient performer.

    7950 or 7870 ... or what?!

    I'd go with a 7950. However if you think it's too much then cross out the 7870 and consider a 7850 instead. It can overclock pretty well and almost to the same level of an overclocked 7870.

    will a OC7850 have the Horsepower ?

    Sorry about that. I'm so much more used to looking at avatars as opposed to people's names on other forums :p. For 7970, here's a good place to start:,3186.html The HIS 7970 looks pretty decent in both performance and cooling...

    safe voltage for HD7950 OC

    Your OC is fine at 1.24V. You can go up to 1.3V if temps cooperate but upping the voltage won't necessarily guarantee higher clocks.

    New build from a new member

    This is a good build but the 1200W PSU is way more than enough even for SLI 670s.

    Throw in another $100 for a 7950 instead of a 7850 for games at that resolution.

    Has AMD fixed monitor sleep/wake issue?

    I've had it happen a few times with 12.4 but I disabled sleep and use hibernate instead. I'll probably have to find another solution once my SSD comes back from RMA...

    Can't decide which processor for Gaming/Editing...

    For gaming the benefits of i7 isn't significant over i5. I can't really speak to other purposes, but in an ~4 minute neural network simulations for one of my classes, a 2600k was about 15-20 seconds faster than a 3570k.

    Weird issue with MSI AB

    When I OC my 7870 with MSI AB and then press reset, my clocks are forced to 150/150Mhz whether or not there is a 3D application running. Another thing that I found weird is that when I manually set my core/memory clocks to their default values, the same thing happens and the clocks are stuck on...

    Antec 620 + 670gtx = success!

    I was just reading about this on OCN yesterday and was thinking of doing it myself also. What did you use to mount the cooler to the PCB?

    Should I get a 670 or 680

    I'd probably just wait till the next generation unless you can sell your 580 for ~$300. The 680 isn't a huge upgrade over the 670 but they're definitely both more efficient than a 580.

    Can't decide which processor for Gaming/Editing...

    But as the OP said he'd get a $50 deal off a Z77 board if he got a 3570k at microcenter, and I don't think the 2500k is $50 cheaper than a 3570k AFAIK.

    Can't decide which processor for Gaming/Editing...

    I don't think IB offers a huge performance increase over SB, maybe slightly more efficient. I'd get a 2600k.

    Are these Specs good enough to be a gaming comp?

    I'd go with something that has a stronger GPU. The 525 is pretty low end now a days but I guess you'd be able to run medium for those games.

    The pavillion series laptops are decent for every day stuff. Their build quality and durability are questionable though.

    Looking for an okay laptop

    Look into the pavillion series from HP? Although it's kinda hard to get a laptop with 1080p screen at that price range.
