    Flickering screens and application relocation

    I had been getting this flickering where the screens go black and everything stops working for like a second every now and again, and sometimes the browser windows or any other opened application would switch to the other screen. I have reduced the problem, it use to be longer pauses, and it...

    x570 TDP

    Previous AM4 mobos work with a TDP of 5w, x570 work with 11w. My question is beyond the obvious of shorter life-span and more power, what are the practical implications of this? I mean what kind of actual life can we expect or actual increases in the electric bill, etc... You know practical...

    Hi, I'm looking for a 27" or 32" monitor, I like accurate color reproduction. My preferences are: -IPS only -10bit preferably -1440p for 27" -4K for 32" Any other bells and whistles are fine, and I'm leaning more towards the 27". Thank you for helping.

    Can you change mobo/cpu/mem and still use your old windows 10 install?

    As the title says. From a 2500K to a 8700K. Can I swap out the mobo, cpu, and mem and plug in the old SSD with windows 10 and have it work? Or is there a way to make it work after said change?

    Recommend a monitor

    I'm building a new rig with a 1070 GTX or better card. I'm interested in a general purpose 27" monitor or larger, something that you can game, work, and watch an occasional movie with. I'm more interested in color accuracy and viewing angles than getting 300Hz on a stupid game, so it will have...

    I currently have a 290 and only game at 1920x1200, but I've been feeling the upgrade itch. I know new generation of cards are in the near future, but I don't know when they are going to be released. And the only real upgrade I would consider is a 980 Ti or a Fury X, the xfire route doesn't...

If I play a video the video is all choppy and jerky, and the machine feels generally slow until I close the game. And no, I'm not running...
