    BenQ BL2710PT made a pop sound and distorted image

    The pop was a bad capacitor probably. Most likely in the power supply. I'd send it back while it's new so no hassles.

    Dell U2414h

    If you don't mind 1080p max resolution you can go with nVidia GPU but if you want to do more and with Display port you'll need to go AMD. An R290x is killing it these days on triple setups and display ports. My GTX770sc would not do ANY display ports and only HDMI outputs to get my 3 U2414H...

    small frame/bezel 24" monitor?

    I bought three of them for my driving sim cockpit. Soon as I get the computer built I'll be powering them up. Hopefully this Sunday. They are VERY thin bezeled. I'm very happy with the look. BTW, these monitors do not have DVI connectors. They are HDMI and Display-port. Also Display-port daisy...

    i7-4770 + H100I: Something's gotta be wrong...

    You're going to have to delid that chip and get that damn apoxie out of the way so the top can actually make contact with the chip and let the thermal paste work like it is suppose to. That or send the damn thing back for another one.

    GTX 780 SLI power requirements

    Should be no problem. Most power consumption calculators don't take into account transfer loss of power supply converting AC to Dc so that 544 is actually only 500 at the DC side. Yes, you have plenty of power in the AX850

    WoT - World Of Tanks - Post your User

    Just started on the 13th of March. Love the game. Would love to platoon up in some in any tier. Teamspeak or Skype. I'm getting better each day even if they can't all be wins! Stats and tanks so far. I have only sold off some Tier 1's, the locus, and the RamII... maybe one or two more I...

    Auto Racing on a PC. What is accurate?

    Love the PVC setup. Well done! I use to race LFS a lot but have since left the driving sims. Most of my old teammates race in iRacing now and they love it.

    SimCity V (2013) - screens/artwork and information

    Played for 3 or 4 hours last night with no server issues. Played 6 hours on an off-line city and have seen several of the traffic, port, and casino issues mentioned. I hope some future updates will fix the weird stuff. Overall I really like killing the hours playing the game. ;)

    My build

    I'm not a pro or anything but a dual Xeon setup would be long lasting and very powerful. Should be some smart people coming on here soon but I usually see the most powerful setup rigs from those into multiple (3+) screen gaming. Gotta add THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!!!!

    This guy has the right idea but I'll add GET THE BEST YOU CAN AFFORD. Bad power will destroy other parts in the computer.

    Time to upgrade my network...

    Early last year I bought a ASUS RT-N56U router. Love it! Works great and a great GUI to setup with. Last fall I bought the same Motorola SB6141 modem to get rid of the cable modem charges. My speeds picked up even though my service is regulated. Now it runs at or just over my max cable provide...

    Need tablet recommendation from tablet experts

    By all means research the products well but remember that 90% or more of people reviewing a product are generally stupid to real technology and create most of their own problems with new gadgets. I have a Nexus 7 and if a 7 size tablet in Android format is what you like there is NONE better...

    Minecraft Will Not be Certified for Windows 8

    Ding Ding....we have a winner. Just because it's MS or APPLE even doesn't make it great. Vista sucked as well as Windows ME :p I'll be staying with Win 7 as long as possible as I LIKE what it does and how. That freaking Apple controlling operator crap windows is trying to copy is NOT for me...

    Get 2nd GTX 570 or single GTX 680?

    My two 570's handle all I can throw at them. I won't be going to 680's but maybe when the 780, or 880 whatevers come out I might move up. That will include more CPU, MB and stuff too though. :D

    Comment on my HTPC Build

    Looks like a pretty good build. I went from a larger foot print case like your building (to the one in my signature) to save some room but gave up a lot of versatility better pwr supplies and such. I've kept the old case and will make another HTPC for the wife - kids - living room in...

    Hook up 2 computers to the same TV?

    If the tv has multiple HDMI inputs you will only have one computer up at a time for viewing but should work with no problem. Maybe if the tv has multiple tv input (PIP) "picture-in-a-picture" capability you can see both computers. I've not heard of that though.

    GALLERY! Show off your HTPC!

    Hey Ninja, It's pretty sturdy. Got it at wally world and I think it was rated for 60" tv. I have a 55". It's over 50Lbs empty. The metal rails and such are stout. It would take some good rollers for them to last. ;)
