    How long have you used your power supply?

    I think my Corsair TX650 is acting up after about 9 or so years.

    Cases for mini ITX or micro ATX

    Whatchu got? Originally was looking at NZXT H200i. Also looked at the Coolermaster H100. The NZXT H400i comes highly rated for micro ATX. Thoughts/plans/ideas/other cases to consider? I’ve also looked at Thermaltake stuff too.

    Helpe me with a new build...

    Any case recommendations? Can either be mini itx or micro atx. Wanting something smaller and cube-ish.

    Helpe me with a new build...

    I didn’t realize it was fully open air. Looking at swapping to the NZXT H210i as that line keeps showing up.

    Helpe me with a new build...

    I am also open to other cases. I started doing some looking after seeing your builds and the P1 seems an “alright” case.

    Helpe me with a new build...

    https://hardforum.com/threads/tax-return-new-puter-for-me.1491038/ This was the last computer that I built; all from the H, and it's lasted me this entire time (9ish years) with only a few upgrades (added a SSD, mainly). Things still haven't really changed. Pretty sure I'm still using the same...

    It's getting to be that time again, 4 years later

    About the monitor? I'm sorry, I totally didn't see it. Not necessarily I'm pretty happy overall with this one, as it's served me well for quite a while. I'd probably leave it "as is" for now. This desk I'm currently using doesn't leave me a lot more room over top of the monitor, maybe another...

    It's getting to be that time again, 4 years later

    I thought I'd set the list to public. Question, since i've been out of it: does the size of the PCI-e slot matter? This is the card I have, which is PCI-e x1 If said card will work in a PCI- 2.0 slot, then moot point. But, like I said, I've been out of it for a while now.

    It's getting to be that time again, 4 years later

    Here is one I'd put together about a year or so ago when I was trying to get an idea where I'd be at for a straight streaming rig. https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/MySavedWishDetail.aspx?ID=32667228 Not sure how well those parts would play together, however.

    It's getting to be that time again, 4 years later

    I don't have a problem with transferring old stuff to a new case simply because I'd more than likely give it to the kids. Trying to decide whether or not I should keep the blackmagic cards in the old one, or put in the new one, as well. But, knowing kids, they'll install all sorts of...

    It's getting to be that time again, 4 years later

    1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? etc Some games (mostly Dota2, WoW, and prob Heroes of the Storm) and livestreaming (and some editing) of fights. 2) What's your budget? Are tax and shipping included? Don't have one in mind. Can probably get away...

    That's one thing that pisses me off. If you're running something, and people don't stop to hit pots and what not.

    Diablo 3 Discussion Thread

    For me, they haven't all been on the same character, and they've been varying degrees of suck. But it's weird how it works out. Also, random question: In damage comparisons, do they take effects into account? Like, I have a 1H axe with a bleed effect. Hard to tell if it takes that into account.

    I've had days where 5-6 legendaries dropped for me in rapid succession. I've had others where I got nothing. So odd how it all works.

    Xbox 360 - Downloaded games question/more than one account needed?

    Since it's tied to the console, I might be okay then? This ish is confusing sometimes. It's a rare/unique case, though.

    Xbox 360 - Downloaded games question/more than one account needed?

    I just want to be sure I'm not wasting $20 because it won't work like my kids think it will. They just swap back and forth on the LIVE account as it is. Didn't know if it was tied to the Xbox or the LIVE account.

    Xbox 360 - Downloaded games question/more than one account needed?

    It does, and was an answer I also found. So, long story short this probably ISN'T going to work how I want it since it would be on the same LIVE account.

    We got my son an xbox for Christmas 2 years ago. All was fine and well. couple months ago, he traded a friend for another (I don't know how it worked, but whatever). He gave it to his sister. She is asking to buy the digital version of Minecraft. I'm worried that I'm going to end up...

    Noted board issue/questions

    Looking at pricing something out and trying to get a baseline of where I'm going to be to make a "smaller" system for lugging around to different events (I do videography for a small, local MMA promotion). Long story short, I have 2 BlackMagicDesign Intensity Pro cards that I'm using that...

    New Rig for Streaming

    I understand that. And yes, 2. As I'm glancing over things, I'm realizing where it leaves me. It just sucks ass lugging a full size case in and out. I did find some MicroATX cases that may work, however. Currently I am using a USB one. It's not bad. But, I'm also streaming from a hotspot that...

    New Rig for Streaming

    I'm still trying to get a baseline of where I'm at. If I can build a straight streaming rig for ~$500, then i could take that to my promoter and possibly build it prior. Unfortunately, due to said volatile nature, I am way, way out of the loop anymore since the PC market evolves so quickly...

    Blizzard's brand new game 'Heroes of the Storm'

    I got back into Dota2 recently. Need to try LoL and Heroes. Had both installed forever, just never picked them up. I'm not sure how I feel about this, like some ssaid, Blizz seems late tot he game. But I think people will pick it up simply because it's Blizzard.

    Lagging graphics during live broadcast

    So, I'm doing live broadcasts of an amateur MMA show. I'm trying to do live graphics, but they always seem to lag out, skip through, and look like ass when I try to play them through Wirecast. My computer is slightly dated at this piont (just over 3 years old), but I think the RAM is my...

    Help me with some 720p settings

    I'm having so many issues with all this, but I'll keep plugging away, I think I'm just going to try it in 1080 since that is what the cameras are at. figure it'll be easier than downconverting. I can do that at a later date with handbrake. The video just doesn't look as good in the digital...

    Capturing MiniDV footage

    For some reason WinDV isn't seeing the card or the camera. Ended up using Win Movie Maker and it worked pretty well. There are a few kinks in it, but I like it a lot better than the one in Sony Vegas.

    Help me with some 720p settings

    Want to bump this. I need to still play with it, as well, but I'm getting pissed at this dude. He sends me the settings then tells me the quality isn't good. Well, duh. You're having me record at 640x360!

    Puter Lockdown Software

    Isn't he, though!?!?! My son is apparently an angel, from what I understand. The best part was when I directly confronted him about it, and it still wasn't him. He was the only person on the computer that day, yet it somehow wasn't him.

    Puter Lockdown Software

    The "biggest" problem that I'm running into is that they essentially know enough to be dangerous, but not enough to be careful. They are 9 and 12, so they see a download link and click it. They play Minecraft and associated mods, etc. They are constantly downloading texture packs, mods, and...

    Puter Lockdown Software

    I should have phrased that better. The bigger concern is the downloading part. They are kids; they have little idea nor care for what they are downloading at any given moment. They click on the "wrong" links constantly. So, I'm more concered with blocking that than I am about blocking adult...

    Deleting a hack? CoD: MW2/Super Lemon Haze

    We generally keep a low limit on them, but thanks for teh heads up. I can't find anything on my system that looks remotely like it, nor using the files names I was able to find online. But I know that my Custom Classes, for example, said CMD-X <3 and the menu and such popped up.

    Deleting a hack? CoD: MW2/Super Lemon Haze

    Yes, clearly that wasn't my first thought. I asked him, he didn't have any info. My guess is one of his "friends" said "here, download and install this".
