    Ryzen 3 1200 - $64.99 ($55 with discount code) - Newegg Good price even without the discount. Way better deal than a Pentium or i3. EDIT: Looks like the discount code is dead but its still on sale for $65. And as noted below, if you're near a micro center, there's a much better deal to be...

    Anyone have an RX560 (14cu)?

    Need a video card for my 880K but, due to PSU limits (Seasonic 360w gold) I need a video card without a pcie 6 pin. I already have a 1050ti in my main rig which would be a waste on an old 880K in my opinion. So i was lookin at the AMD side (kinda want to stay all AMD anyway). My best option is...

    I5-7600K second opinion.

    Have an Asus B250 and 16GBs of 2400 RAM. Lookin for a quad core upgrade. Currently on eBay I can get a 7600K cheaper than the 7600. Everything I do relies on faster single core speed. So is it a no brainer to grab the K for the faster base clock?

    General storage (with redundency).

    (Specs in sig) Just to preface, any important data will also be copied to an external drive for additional protection. I'm thinking bout setting up some general storage in my rig with some sort of redundency. Am i better off with just 2 drives in Raid 1 (windows or FakeRAID?) Or 3 drives in...

    Would Gigabit cards be necessary?

    I'm going to redo my firewall running IPfire. Specs: My internet speeds are only 30/5 with TWC... I personally don't think it's worth the upgrade to gigabit cards but, wanted to see what the network guru's of the forum think.

    Individually sleeved cables.

    Currently using a Lian Li A04. Some of you may know there it isn't enough space behind the board tray for "traditional" cables. However, individually sleeved cables in theory should be able to "flat'n out" enough to not cause any issues. Would'nt care to have a new PSU either (fully modular)...

    750ti/950se from next generation?

    Just kind of a speculative question I guess. Given the new 1080 performance to power ration benefits... boost.. whatever you wanna call it. Does anyone think we'll see a replacement to the 750ti/950se on the new generation platform?

    G3258 overclock question

    I've got G3258 on an eVGA z97 FTW board. Currently sitting at 4.1Ghz. I bumped the voltage up to 1.250. Is this to much? Should I lower it a little? I haven't done any formal benchmarking (stress testing) just yet but, even at that i feel my voltage might be a little to high.

    (W7) Cursor moves when a window opens

    So.. I'm not sure if I just recently started noticing this or what but, it's annoying. Say I'm deleting stuff, I click the folder, hit the delete key. The "Are you sure" window pops up, my cursor automatically moves over the highlighted button (usually "OK"). How I can I turn this off? It...

    Need to replace section of coax

    So long story short, stupid dog decided our coax line on the outside of the house (its ran down low) looked like a good snack. I need to replace about a 5ft section of it.

    Quick 775 question.

    I never really messed with the 775 era much (I had AMD). If the chipset (975x) supports ECC... do I need to run a Xeon CPU? I'm assuming no, since the controller is in the chipset.

    Reference or eVGA?

    Lookin at a GTX 770. I like the looks of the reference 770s (seems eBay is the only place to get them) but, looking at the eVGA overclocked cards with the ACX cooler... Seems those would be a better investment cooling wise. Whats everyones opinion?

    So I just ordered a 3770K. My first jump into the high end world. Reading up a little on the Ivy Bridge cpu's i notice they run a little hot.

    FX on 785G?

    I've got an MSI 785G-E53. It hasnt been updated to support the newer FX series CPUs (like some motherboards have). Is there a purposeful reason for this or is it just MSI not wanting to mess with it?

    4+1 enough to handle stock X6?

    I've got an MSI 785g-e53. My understanding is that it is a 4+1 power phase design. It has a factory heatsink that gets a little air from my dual fan CM 212 Plus. Would this be fine for a stock 1090T or 1100T?
