    Found the following comment to explain why Microcenter delisted the monitor: "I got the monitor yesterday as well. TODAY I RESERVED A SECO D ONE AT MICROCENTER AND THEY JUST CALLED ME TO LET ME KNOW THE MONITOR WAS RECALLED BECAUSE THEY BROKE STREET DATE BY ACCODENT. FEELS SO GOOD HAVING IT NOW"

    3 months of Xbox Game Pass for PC for $1

    I signed up for game pass for $1 for three months. Looks like Ultimate gets you access to xcloud. It was offered for another $1 but instead of getting it for three months it said I would be charged $14.95 after one month.

    Case recommendation

    Thanks, I'll go with the XL. It was the case I was originally going to go with when deciding on the Lancool II but I didn't think I'd need the extra space and never thought it would be so difficult to pick up a new video card. I may do a custom loop but wanted a quicker solution until I have...

    Hello, I currently have a Lian Li Lancool II with an AMD 3800 cooled by an ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 280 and an air cooled 1080ti. I recently hit the queue for an Evga 3080ti Hydro Copper card. I picked up a Bitspower Smart Combo Xtreme 240 all-in-one cooler for the video card. I'm not seeing...

    I just picked up the 305's along with the 310 subwoofer. I have my 305's volume set to 6 and the subwoofer set 7 clicks from max. The input sensitivity is set to -10db. Still playing with the settings but sounds good. The source is my soundblaster zxr.

    Recommendation on comfortable 8-12hr office chair for big guy

    Check out a used Herman Miller Aeron. I'm the same height at 235lbs. I've had mine at work for many years and am comfortable sitting in it all day. Still looks good and no issues with it. Because of my experience with it at work I bought a used one for home use at around $450.

    WoW; 6h expansion Legion

    I'm enjoying leveling up a fury warrior currently at level 103. Never played the spec before legion so still figuring out things but it's been fun so far. I normally play a warlock but this expansion they seem boring.

    Battlefield 4 **Official Discussion Thread**

    A recent issue came up where my sli setup(670FTW) is only 50% utilized in bf4. CPU(3570K at 4.2) usage is at 100%. I did a clean reinstall of the nvidia drivers and everything was back to being smooth. Graphic card usage was over 90% and cpu usage around 70%. Since then it's reverted back to...

    Battlefield 4 **Official Discussion Thread**

    I had the same error today. I found a post which said to run the files under: Battlefield 4->_Installer->vc->vc2012Update3->redist it fixed it for me. I also seemed to have fixed the sound loop then crash error by running the 32bit version. Although that locks the graphics to low settings.

    Same for me. I have a windows 7x64, gtx670 sli setup. A few minutes and it crashes to desktop with that error message. The game runs much smoother with the latest patches but now it crashes.

    Best Computer Speakers?!? Clarity, Clarity!

    I just bought a pair of JBL LSR2325P's for $300 new/shipped. They replaced my Klipsch 4.1 speakers after the subwoofer stopped working. The JBL's are connected to a ZXR soundcard. They sound great with decent bass.

    Windows 7 Transfering HDs

    I've used Acronis to transfer to new drives. Maybe the hard drive manufacturer has a free download for transferring to new drives? My Plextor drive came with software to transfer the image.

    Small case that can fit at least 5 hotswappable hard drives

    I have that drive enclosure in an Antec Solo One for my WHS. Works well, the drive bay fan is kinda loud but since I keep it in another room I don't notice it.

    I have a Corsair HX620 powering a 3570K, gtx670 SC, an ssd, 2 hdd's, and 4x4GB ram. It previously powered an overclocked Q9550 and gtx580. No problems so far and don't see a need to upgrade.

    Hello, I recently upgraded from my Q9550 to an I5 3570K. A friend has the AMD chip and is thinking of buying my Q9550 plus motherboard. Would that be much of an upgrade for him? His PC is mainly for browsing and games. He's going to buy my gtx580. I'm thinking just upgrading the graphics...

    will you be getting Ivy Bridge?

    Picked up the 3570K and Asrock Extreme4 last night, tomorrow picking up 16GB of Samsung memory. Upgrading from a Q9550. Almost went with the 3770K, but I mainly use the PC for web browsing and gaming and read it wasn't worth the extra cost. Besides, the above parts cost not much more than the...

    So I bought the game during the Halloween sale and installed the true patch. The game has been fun so far even with some bugs/crashes. But now I'm at a point where it always crashes with a LockVertexBuffer error. This is in the Giovanni part after defeating Bruno. Whenever I load the game...
