    Audio Sync Issues - Onboard Audio switch to dedicated card?

    Well I got it fixed. I have been dealing with this for months...or better ignoring the problem for months. Turns out I I had previously disabled the Nahimic software some time ago. I tried turning it back on....and now no audio delay. SHRUG.

    Audio Sync Issues - Onboard Audio switch to dedicated card?

    Both machines are the most current build of Win 10. The audio is a couple seconds behind the video, seems to be behind from the start. I don't believe I have any advanced effects on, but will have to check when I get home. No detectable delay in sound pausing with my ears.

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    I am curious of how many of you that say it is garbage have actually played it? I am a long running Battlefield fan, and hated COD. Battlefield 4 is where I started to lose interest. I tried BF1 and enjoyed it, but my interest wasn't held for long. I have got to say, I was hesitant to try...

    NVIDIA NDA & HardOCP - POLL

    Put the fate of your site/business in the hands of your lawyers advice for you to make the judgement call. It is easy for everyone to tell you to take a path that doesn't cost them anything, in the end it's your money and conscience to do what you think is best for the long haul.

    It's On Like Donkey Kong

    It says "complete arcade version" which would be awesome. If its the original NES version, then its garbage. I LOVE original Donkey Kong. I built a MAME cabinet just so I could play the arcade version whenever I wanted. I went on a DK binge after watching King of Kong - Fist Full of Quarters.

    You’ll Soon Be Able to Buy Hardware from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10

    The last two laptops I purchased were from a physical B&M microsoft store. The laptops were cheaper at MS store than other retail locations and come bloatware free for the same models. Other places had similar prices, within $10 but all had bloatware pre-installed.

    Nintendo Discontinues the NES Classic Edition

    Doe these raspberry pie emulator consoles handle the scaling for modern HDTV's? That is the only reason I am considering a Retro Freak console at the $200 import price...plus it does rip the cartridges I already own for "legal" roms.

    Yes the card was free for me. Since it was free, and granted only marginal differences in performance, I went ahead and installed it.

    3 GB 1060 vs 970

    So I have an opportunity to get a 1060 for next to nothing. However, it is the 3 GB version of the 1060. I am currently using a GTX 970. I am not on a 4k display, but do have a 1440 monitor. Is it worth swapping out the 970 for an essentially free 3 GB 1060? Thanks

    So...after lots of tests no problem appears to be present. I did discover, that when my system had a significant hang (system unresponsive and a forced power down had to be initiated) the forced shut down caused the BIOS to change the boot order. It turns out that my SSD was not on SATA 1 (I...

    The RAM is for sure on the supported list. The SSD list MSI has for the board is very outdated and a number of the BIOS updates expanded SSD compatibility, but unsure if the SSD is on the list. I dont believe the Corsair RM750 I have is a UPS CORSAIR RM Series RM750 750W ATX12V v2.31 and...

    I believe I updated the BIOS about 2 months back to see if it would help, which I believe was the most current BIOS available. Now I am wondering if I need to go back to an older BIOS or re-flash this BIOS.

    Physicist Explains Gravitational Waves to Steve Colbert

    I don't put a lot of weight in a guy with a youtube channel and really bad tattoos. He may be intelligent, but if he is so brilliant to discredit these claims, why isn't he on the team of scientists working on these theories rather than youtube?
