    GPU With System Requirements, Intel Arc Graphics Hardware Locked?

    Could Intel's new Arc Graphics be locked behind a hardware gate? The answer may be yes. After upgrading my internet here at home, I decided to take a look and see if there happened to be any updated network drivers available. I'm still on the X99 platform with the machine in question, and my...

    In need of some new fans. I'm looking for something with an RGB ring ala Enermax T.Bs , NZXT Aer or similar. Must have good static pressure and be pretty quiet. 3 pin or PWM, doesn't matter. The catch? I need 4, 8, or 10 of them, and I do not want ones with the 6-pin power+RGB connector...

    WEBM Attachments?

    Thoughts? I think it would be a great addition, don't take up more space than a .gif. Maybe restrict it to certain subs if worried about abuse.

    "Sweet Spot"

    I'm pretty happy with my Lenovo Explorer, especially with the limited VR gaming I do. That said my main complaint with it is how tiny the "sweet spot" is when positioning the HMD. a centimeter in any direction causes everything to go pretty blurry. I don't have the funds for an Index, but is...

    WTB: Fractal node 202 w/PSU

    Probably a long shot but I need a new htpc and if I'm going to build it new, this is the case that has my interest. If it is in a combo without a GPU I'd be interested as well. Don't need anything too powerful, as I don't game on it, but the old i7-860 I'm using now does not like 4k vp9...

    No Sub/LFE from Browser

    Question hopefully someone can help with. This has just started recently, so I believe it's something software/configuration somewhere. On my HTPC I have an RX570 going HDMI to a Denon AVR-X2500H which then goes HDMI to my display. I'm getting no subwoofer/LFE output when watching anything in...

    4k60 Streaming Stuttering

    I'm at a loss, I'm wondering if it's my old wifi adapter in the HTPC killing me, but my connection speed seems like it should be rosey for 4k60 streaming. Took this snip from YT just now. old i7 860, 8GB RAM (I've got some more I can stuff in it), RX 570 4GB, Dell 1505 wireless card. Seriously...

    I'm in need of some unlocking. Got a phone from my boss, Galaxy S8 that had a battery pack that swole up and broke the back glass. I repaired it, only to find out it's SIM locked to Sprint. Any [H] bros able to help? I know nothing about unlocking.

    WTB: Cheap (but decent) PCIe Wifi Card

    Seems like the price on these shot up for some reason. Figured one of the [H] bros would have one lying around. The ancient Dell wi-fi card (with the square antenna thinggy) won't give me enough to stream 4k reliably. Let me know what you have shipped to 34669.

    WTB: Cheap GPU with HDMI 2.0b & BL3 Code

    Got a new TV... didn't even think of my old R7 260x in the HTPC not supporting all the bells and whistles. I don't game on this PC, and if I did I'd just use Steam streaming so horsepower is not a priority. Just need 2.0b and cheap... RX 460, 550, GT1030, whatever, something that has the newer...

    WTB: WMR Controllers

    Probably a long shot but I'm looking for a pair of WMR motion controllers. I bought the Lenovo Explorer a few months back as headset only, and would like to add the controllers, but no one sells the damn things. Thought maybe one of you fine fellows may have some you wouldn't mind parting with.

    WTB: USB 5.1 Sound Card (Cheap)

    Don't need anything super fancy, but I do need it to have the normal multiple 3.5mm stereo connections (Front, back, center/sub) and be Win 10 compatible. Something like the Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB, but doesn't have to be that specific model, no-name is fine as long as it works in...

    WTB: RX 580 8GB or Complete PC

    Either putting together my old X58 machine for iRacing, and need an RX 580 for it, or I'll entertain a complete PC with an RX 580 in it if the price is right. Yes it needs to be a 580, no Nvidia cards please, monitors are already here, and Freesync. Willing to drive most anywhere in FL for...

    WTB: Laptop/ultrabook

    In search of a laptop, mainly needed for photo editing, gaming won't be a thing that happens on it. Desire 15", good screen, 4c 8t, 12GB+ memory preferred, but any is fine if upgradeable, and stronk battery life. Good bonus would be an SD slot. Budget is tight, hoping for under $300...
