    Bought a Lenovo Y900 Gaming PC last week, ram upgrade?

    its an awesome PC, i love it. of course i have shockwave flash crashing issues on windows 10, but thats nothing to do with the PC. I have tried the usually fixes everyone talks about. still crashes every once in a while.

    Bought a Lenovo Y900 Gaming PC last week, ram upgrade?

    I suppose i could put my old 4GB x 2 sticks back in also, to make a total of 24GB. If the new ram doesnt run any faster anyway.. not that I need 24GB.. but it sounds cool anyway.

    Bought a Lenovo Y900 Gaming PC last week, ram upgrade?

    So I definitely knew what I was getting into buying a pre-made PC. I have built my own for the last 15 years, and I just wanted a nice set this time with no hassle. I got it, and this is an incredible PC. But I think I can see a drawback to this type of thing, I found out my motherboard bios...

    20% off Samsung 840's including Pro's

    i was disappointed in the fact that my 840 PRO wasnt any faster than my old 830, but still glad I got the deal on it. I also made sure my SATA cables are 6GB rated and also in the proper ports in my MB. The chipset controlled SATA3.

    20% off Samsung 840's including Pro's

    after enabling "rapid" on my Samsung Magician software, my average reads went up 60MB. Now they are 360MB/s or so. so the Samsung has 100 MB/s more average read than your Corsair above. Which is more important than burst for sure.

    20% off Samsung 840's including Pro's

    i just bought a 840PRO 512GB yesterday for $369. I don't know how old this thread is. I went to Frys which was $459, and then I price matched it to Amazon. The disk is sweet. Although... my 830 256GB series it is paired with is faster. I just installed a fresh bought windows 8.1 on the 840...

    Compared Samsung 830 series to Intel 530 series

    Samsung 830 256GB vs Intel 530 240GB I was disappointed that the Intel was a lot slower, i guess i didnt research enough first. Always Samsung from now on. Disk indexing is off on both C and D, dont know anything else to improve it. I AM running in that AHCI mode. The Intel even dropped to...

    Advice on purchase: iMac vs Pro vs Air

    some times i want to now sell my 13" airbook and buy a 13" pro instead. but my favorite thing about the air is the weight. tough call.. is the screen any higher quality on the pro? or the same?

    Advice on purchase: iMac vs Pro vs Air

    i had a macbook air 11. then i sold it for a air 13 because it was so nice i wanted more screen size. 2 weeks ago i bought the wife a imac 21.5". it is killer, except for the slow disk. So I did an SSD upgrade on it last weekend as a secondary drive. Now its as fast as my air stuff, but a lot...

    the online part definitely still sucks. racing beside people, they slam into a wall or car. then 2 seconds later theyre full speed beside you again. its useless for any legitmately fun racing.

    Serious Sam 3

    GREAT game for PC. First few levels are kinda dull and slow. Then at level 4-5 it really gets killer with hundreds of enemy swarms. Great for non-thinking blow it up fun. Graphics are nothing special, but thats not what this game is about. Really well designed, saves and exits in like 1 second...

    ASUS PA246Q: 24-inch, 1920x1200, IPS

    just came home with this monitor. It blows me away. I've had an awesome HP w2207 (1680x1050?) for 2-3 years. In that time, I have bought at least 3 other LED-LCD 23-24" monitors trying to replace it to reach that magical 1080p resolution I was just short of.. Every time, they looked much worse...

    Dell U2412M vs Asus PA246Q for Photoshop + Gaming?

    I just came across this Asus today and im gonna get it. I been looking for a nice 23-24" monitor with height adjustment for a long time, and the IPS panel is a huge bonus. I do enjoy color accuracy. Plus the Asus comes custom calibrated to the exact serial number with paperwork included in the box.

    $1500 range laptop?

    not bad, with everything maxed out on a X220 im at about $1329 before shipping. that site has about $700 in discounts right now. i dunno tho, then i compare it to a Sony SA for $200 more, which comes with a way stronger video plus an SSD drive.

    $1500 range laptop?

    funny you mention that.. i just read a few reviews on the X220.. gets all perfect reviews (except for gaming of course). But the screen must be amazing. I like the 12" smaller than the sony 13"'s too.. but i'd like to throw the i7 in there instead, i'd prob have to custom order. i had thinkpads...

    $1500 range laptop?

    ya.. a year ago when i was looking i checked out an airbook in person. i just cant get over having to learn a new OS.

    $1500 range laptop?

    $1500 range laptop? I think my front runner is a Sony SA in a 23 or 25 variety. Looking for small screen, portability. No gaming really, but i still want a nicely fast machine, near the top of the heap. Priced a SA23 at Frys price matched for about $1299. (asking $1399, but they were asking...

    13"ish laptop shopping...

    i looked at a DM1 at microcenter last night. just couldnt bring myself to buy it. just looked too cheap. (but the plus is it IS cheap..) but for a NETBOOK, its probably the best reviews i seen anywhere. I have to go to a 13.3" Sony SA series range, and i know im gonna have to spend a lot of money.
