    new cooler, these temps seem high? I feel i should be getting better temps, considering how low the voltage is. its a Corsair H60 (newer edition) and i have it set up as exhaust in rear of the case. Its also in pull from the rad, so the rad is facing the CPU. I figure since i have one intake and...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    The artifacts big and small make this game unplayable. i can get a good 8 minutes out of it before i have to restart the whole game. Walls of green texture encapsulate me at random points in the game. im on 314.22 driver so maybe updating will fix it?

    should i get the Dell U2412M or the asus pa248Q?

    Okay there is about a 100 $ difference between them, would like to get the cheapest IPS as long as its suitable for gaming. Im slightly on the fence though since I initially wanted a quality 120Hz for the smoothness (benq or asus) but its just never as cheap as the IPS. Then i said fine the dell...

    do you use bit-perfect audio?

    Or is it bit-matched? Sound cards have an option to do bit-matched playback, and im guessing wasapi or asio have to be utilized by the media player in order for that to work. Is it worth it over the normal mode with sound resampled, remixed or whatever happens. I figured out how to get wasapi in...

    stupid question, how do you update drivers?

    does everyone just do the basic way, uninstall old and install new or do a complicated process of cleaning out the old files? Drivers used to be a pesky thing, they still are in windows 7 and new nvidia drivers? And there are people who do it through steam.

    The great Windows Post-installation Dilemma

    To update or not to update that is the question. Seriously at first I was under the impression its good practice to update windows fully first before installing any drivers so as to take care of any potential problems. Besides it makes sense, seeing how these newer drivers are tailored for a...
