    New build form?

    I haven't been on in a while, but there use to be a new build form that asked a bunch of questions (What's your budget, what are your intended uses, monitor size, do you have an OS, etc) that you could fill out an someone would help you with a build. I don't see this offered anymore. Did it go...

    Webhosting Change - Email

    I want to change web hosting services. Godaddy has become far too expensive. On top of their already high prices, I got an email saying that they are going to start charging $12/mo, per email address. That seems ridiculous to me, especially at 8-10 email addresses. I am a little concerned...

    Bottlenecking on my older gear is what I was really thinking might be an issue. I should have clarified.

    Waste if money?

    I need a video card to drive my two 32” UHD monitors. There is a deal going right now for XFX 5700 and 5700xt. I’m suspecting maybe that is too much video card for my current rig and I’d be pissing money away. Thoughts and insights?? Intel Core i5-4690K CPU Asus Z97-A Intel Z97 Motherboard...

    Help me figure out BSOD

    Win 7. I never got around to upgrading when it was free. As to the drivers. I have not installed any new drivers, but I have not updated drivers in a long time either. I have not had any issues until now, so I haven't updated them.

    Help me figure out BSOD

    I am getting frequent BSOD's. I recently installed two UHD monitors and I am running them off a super old GPU, a Sapphire HD7850 from 2012. Can someone help me figure out if this is definitively a GPU problem or something else? It will not let me upload the two files mentioned in the error...

    Will my dated gpu run these monitors?

    Agreed on the reason for changing out the gpu. I appreciate all of the help and feedback as I do not have the time to relearn and get caught up on the lastest gpus and games. I've been out of gaming for some time now, but would definitely like to have the option in the future. 1080P is...

    Will my dated gpu run these monitors?

    So, just go for the 560 and save the $60?

    Will my dated gpu run these monitors?

    Local BB has these two options instock: XFX Radeon RX560 and XFX Radeon RX580 I have $15 credit at BB so the 560 would be $115. OR, I can get BB to price match Amazon and I could pick up the 580 for $175. I'm assuming that the 580 is worth the extra $60???

    Will my dated gpu run these monitors?

    I haven't played a game in a few years, but if I did want to play a game, can it still be done somehow? Play at a lower resolution in game? What about Photoshop? Still using CS5, not sure if it tries to use the gpu or not.

    Will my dated gpu run these monitors?

    My video card is very dated. First release date is 2012. Sapphire HD7850 I bought of pair of these: LG 32" UHD 4K First, will my card even drive the resolution, 3840x2160? Second, will my card drive the resolution X2? Last, there is no DVI input on the monitors, can I run 1 HDMI and 1 DP at...

    Malwarebytes and MSE both do not detect any threats. I have run both many times. That is why I think that I am not infected, but have something residual effing me up.

    Downloaditkeep

    I am getting temp internet files with the file extension downloaditkeep. I have also found it associated with my Thunderbird mail files. I believe that the downloaditkeep malware itself is no longer present on my Win7 machine. However, I do believe it is causing some residual issues. I get...

    Change color on hyperlink

    Just out of curiosity, why is the default color for links a light grey? Is that dictated by code somewhere in the CSS folder?

    Overclocking woes

    So, the water cooler definitely was not seated properly. I had the compound on way too thick. Also, eventhough I had complete coverage on the cpu, the cooler had only made contact on about 90%. Whoops... Live and learn... Won't make that mistake twice. So now on stock settings, it is idling...

    Overclocking woes

    I ran RealBench on stock settings and am averaging right at 80c. I'm thinking thats a little warm for stock. I think I will reapply thermal paste and reseat the sink. Then when I figure out what the heck I am doing in the BIOS, I know heat isn't the issue.

    Overclocking woes

    It think it is a good bet that I am misunderstanding something. I could OC on Award BIOS with not issue whatsoever. It made sense to me. I just cannot figure out the UEFI BIOS. So, when I adjust voltage, I am setting controls to manual and assigning a fixed value. Instead of manual, should...

    Overclocking woes

    So I tried again to get some numbers. Default Bios settings, the cores run at about 27-30 at idle and 79-83 at Prime95 load. Changing only the Vcore from stock 0.993 to 0.995, the cores idle at 33-36 and instant BSOD at Prime95 load. In fact, with the slight Vcore modification, I get a BSOD...

    Building a new rig for my kid

    My kid needs a new rig. I tried out PC Hound, but the automatic builder would not function in two different browsers. So I tried building it myself and came up with this: PC Hound Part List CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 6M ($199.99 @ B&H) Motherboard: ASUS Z170-A ($139.99 @ Amazon) Memory...

    Website: Can I block access to all countries but the US?

    My website is getting dozens of visits a day from several foreign countries, 100% bounce rate, and 0 seconds spent on the site. Mind you, dozens is significant as my site only gets maybe a handful of real visitors a week. Also, recently I was warned by Google Webmaster Tools of a possible...

    Budget build for video editing

    CPU you quoted being sold by third party, not amazon. OOS via amazon. Any reason not to ante up $20 and get the 4590? Wouldn't the faster stock speed be beneficial? Also, no gpu needed?

    Budget build for video editing

    They agreed to the $530 with no issue. However, after talking to them and explaining that by spending more now, they will not be sacrificing on performance and will be future proofing a lot better. I told them they really needed something more like my rig to achieve this. Here is a rig that...

    Budget build for video editing

    Since to date they only really surfed the internet, their current rig is a budget machine i found for them at an office store years ago. I am not sure what it is, but it is likely a celeron or an older AMD with probably 2GB of RAM. It is definitely not up to the challenge. Even if it were, it is...

    Budget build for video editing

    Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately, I am not a video guy. I do photos, hence why I really need help figuring this all out. I will be learning video on the fly. That being said, I have not researched any editing software. I will probably be looking for something free. If GoPro's...

    Budget build for video editing

    My in-laws need a new computer. It needs to be capable of video editing, but please keep something in mind. While it needs to be capable of video editing, I suspect it will be used very little for this purpose. They just got a gopro and want to play with it, but they are not tech savvy in the...

    Push vs Pull

    I just started my overclocking process of my new 4690K. I know it is a crap shoot as to how much you get out of any processor, but I scoured the net to ascertain a good place to start. 1.25v and 4.4ghz seemed somewhat reasonable. When I ran Prime95 with those setting, temps immediately hit the...

    BSOD everytime I try to OC the CPU

    Would you be able to point me to a guide for the Asus BIOS? I have tried google and have not succeeded in finding anything that helps. I did try to figure this out on my own before posting. Unfortunately, I do not have a ton of free time at the moment to figure out the BIOS via trial and...

    Need a clean install... Want to build new system instead

    Thanks so much. Going to get that stuff ordered. Have one question though. Can you recommend a good case that can hold 5 hard drives and at least one optical drive? I did not think it was important at the time I answered the questions to note that I might have 5 hard drives in total. But...

    Need a clean install... Want to build new system instead

    So, your reply came after I had crashed for the night and I did not get either cpu/mobo ordered. By what you were saying, it sounds like it might nit be a bad thing. If i have to make sacrifices because of my budget, I do not want to sacrifice on the cpu/mobo. I would much rather have to...

    Need a clean install... Want to build new system instead

    Windows is acting very wonky on my current rig and probably needs a clean install. If I am going to go to all that trouble to do, I am going to build a new rig to replace my very outdated E6320 system. There are two combo deals on Newegg right now for cpu/mobo. Core i5-4690K/Asus Z97M...

    Windows fails to start

    So after running SeaTools 5 or 6 times and letting it fix the problems, I finally got the drive to test without errors. Windows still could not repair itself, so I ended up resorting to a clean install. Everything seems to be working as it should now. Hopefully the HDD is good to go now...
