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...
Hi, I have 2 monitors and a TV hooked up to my PC with a Nvidia 1080.
Resolutions as follows:
1. 27" 1440p, DisplayPort monitor
2. 24" 1200p, DVI monitor
3. 65" 4K, HDMI TV
The problem is that every time I turn on the TV all the windows switch around, like if monitor 1 has Chrome up, then it...
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...
I am looking to build a new rig, I want either a 3900x or 9900K with a good x570 or z390 mobo respectively in either ATX or ATX-E.
If you have a CPU, mobo, or mem for these builds I would be interested.
No offense, but I'm not going respond to offers that are near MSRP. I would rather buy new if...
Hi, I'm looking for a 27" or 32" monitor, I like accurate color reproduction.
My preferences are:
-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.
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 have 2 routers, here is a quick look at the setup:
Router #1: 3 wired PCs, 1 cable modem, and a wired connection to Router #2. Wireless capabilities disabled.
Router #2: 2 wired PCs, 1 wired virtual phone, 1 wired printer. This is the router we use for wireless. All smartphones, tablets, a...
I have a 2500K and I use a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus air cooler on it, can I use this same cooler on a 6700K? If not what do you recommend? I don't plan on going high-end on the cooling, just a good above average unit.
Update 5/4: I finally received a card. They sent me what looks to be new a 390 base version (not their OC line) hard to tell with only the card and no box/manual/etc...didn't really pay much attention to it.
All I cared about was getting a working card, and the second I put in my computer it...
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...
Hi guys, I finally got the chance to update to windows 10 pro and I've been trying to change privacy setting, and disable cortana, etc...
Is there a guide or a checklist of things I need to change? When I learned that the default setting basically keylogs everything and send it to Microsoft I...
Hi guys, I've had an HP ZR24w for over four years now. I love the hell out of it, the colors, the response rate (for an IPS), the viewing angles, etc... really fantastic monitor, have no major complaints.
I want a jack-of-all-trades monitor, don't really care about 144hz for gaming, as long...
New, sealed never been open.
I was planing to go crossfire but decided not to, so this is either going back or you get a bargain. I'll leave this up for 2 days only.

I've been wanting to give this game a try but it's been out for a while and I don't want to start years behind everybody.
If you have an old account in good standing that you don't want anymore I would be a buyer at around $25.
I don't care what it has on it, something is better than...

I want to know what is the best or very good sound cards for headphones.
I use high grade Sennheiser cans, anything from HD280, RS 180, to HD 650, and others.
Since I use my computer for games, movies, tv, music, etc.. with headphones I'm real picky about hisses, crackles and pops from...
I'm thinking of getting a 7970. Any suggestions on which particular one?
I currently have a 6970, single monitor at 1920x1200, 2500K, play a variety of games.
I returned a 670GTX when they came out, wasn't happy with it, mostly due to the fact that my machine would slow down (kinda like...

RAGE - $10

I don't know if this is a [H]ot deal or not, but it seems like something many people would be interested in.
Some of you might know (and love) Defense Grid, a tower defense type game. The developers at Hidden Path Entertainment have started up a KickStarter project in order to fund DG2, their...
I just switched from an HD6970 to a GTX 670 and now sometimes when I alt-tab out of a game my PC is super slow, as if all the resources were being used up. 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...
I'm selling my 6970 because I'm upgrading to a 670. I have never OC it, and don't know its limitations, I'm too damn lazy to do those kinds of thing. It comes with full retail accessory and packaging.
Asking $200 shipped CONUS.
Amazon Payments & confirmed PayPal.
Time to go...
I have a spare DOTA 2 key, I know I can't sell it, but I think it should be okay (I hope) if someone wants to trade another game for it. Message me with offers, maybe Diablo III? :)
I forgot to mention that it is a fresh key, comes with 2 invites. So basically 3 people can play with it.
I'm having trouble with my ASUS P8Z68-V PRO mobo.
I use headphones (Sennheiser HD-280 PRO) and at random (at least that I can see) intervals the "New device detected" popup for the realtek audio detector comes up. As if you were unplugging and plugging back in the headphones.
It's as if...
The Newegg deals on cases end today. I was wondering if it would be a good time to buy. I have narrowed my selections to these, although some of them are out of stock. What do you think I should get? I have a 6970 card, no water cooling, Hyper 212 plus cooler...
So on a whim I decided to do a full upgrade, although I think I'm going to regret it pocketbook wise, because the comp. I already have is still one helluva rig.
I'll post pictures as I get it ready to ship out, right now I'm just seeing if there is any interest on the full system instead of...
Two things about me:
1. I don't know Jack about SSDs (never had one)
2. I'm cheap.
Given these two conditions what is the best value (not necessarily the cheapest, but that's a good start) hard drive, speed and price wise in the 120-128GB range?
I think I want to stick to SATA III drives...
