    X470 Taicji question

    My X370 Taichi MB went tits up, and rather than waiting for the RMA process, I decided to just get a new MB and RMA later. While looking, I noticed that the X470 was not all that much more $$ than the X370 so I decided that I'd go with the X470 since it would be a bit of an upgrade. I'll be...

    27" vs. 31.5" help me decide

    I'm giving some serious thoughts of upgrading from my Samsung C27F398, 1080/60Hz. I'm looking at the Samsung C27HG70, and C32HG70, 1440/144Hz. Specs on the two are identical except for the size, and I'm wondering if it's worth an extra $100.00 to go with the larger monitor? Going to the...

    Updates to phone.

    OK, I'm fairly new to this whole smart phone thing. I was happy with my old dumb ass phone, and only changed because it died, and I had no choice. I use Tracfone as I don't really use a cell phone that much anyway, and it's the most economical service for me. Anyway, I purchased a Samsung...

    HX1000/Vega 64 Aqua

    I'm putting together a new Ryzen build and have the newer HX1000 with the option to switch between single rail or multi rail and a Sapphire Vega 64 Aqua and have a couple of questions. First, which would be the better use of the HX1000. Single rail or multi rail? Second would it be better to...

    Looking for new case

    Folks, I'm putting together a new build and need a case to fit a somewhat odd requirement. I'll be going 'full time' in my motorhome, and need one that I can travel with. I will be moving it from it's 'travelling position' to a 'using position' when I'm in a campground for any length of time...

    Curved vs. Flat monitors

    Gents, It's time for a mew monitor, and I'm considering one of the Samsung curved monitors, this one to be specific: I'm running a Sapphire R9 380X 4GB vid card, so 1980 x1880 res is just fine for me. I do a decent amount of...

    Networking n00b question

    I'm getting ready to setup a newtwork for the house, but am not sure which hardware I'm going to need. Currently I'm on a 3M/1M ADSL connection with a Cisco 675 router. From what I can find, I 'think' that I can use either the Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router, or the Linksys WAP54G...

    Weird hardware problem

    I'm having a hardware problem with my system, and THOUGHT it was the video card, but now that I've just installed a new Sapphire 9600XT and the same problem persists, I'm thinking that it's the mainboard. PROBLEM: When I boot into XP PRO (all updates) it will get to the first splash screen...

    Thermal paste question

    Does thermal paste have a 'service life'? My system has been running a bit warmer than usual lately, and I'm wondering if I should remove my waterblock, and re-apply the thermal paste? When I installed the waterblock, I used the paste that Koolance supplied. My water level is good, and...

    This may not be the proper place, but...

    I'm a n00b on the forum, and if this isn't the proper place I trust that a MOD will move to to the proper one. I've run into an odd problem with a system, and I'm hoping that someone can help point me into the proper direction. I just upgraded, and decided to use the old parts to put...
