    Comcast wifi 3.1 modem needed

    That was a pretty lucky purchase. The MB8600 and that router seem like a good combination.

    Comcast wifi 3.1 modem needed

    I really wasn't insistent on a all in one gateway. I am just trying to find my way to understand what it is I do need to do what it is I want done. As far as the cost, to me that isn't as important as getting out from under comcast pricing of their modem. The fact they keep raising prices and...

    Comcast wifi 3.1 modem needed

    It seems to be an either or situation. Either you pay big bucks for everything or can't trust a lesser model. Many of the reviews I saw has dropped connections as the con. I play online games and the last thing I need is for a modem to be dropping me. The netgear was the first one I saw and my...

    Comcast just raised yet again the cost of my rental modem to $14 a month. It is time for me to get my own, When I do searches for a wifi 3.1 docsis modem compatible with comcast my eyes start to glass over. Could I get recommendations from current users in my situation? We do not have alexa and...

    AW3418DW

    Thankfully I don't have to clear any purchase with my wife before I buy what I want. She gets what makes her happy and I do the same. Buying this monitor for me was a great purchase. I have a corner desk and have the monitor pushed to the deep corner for maximum distance. Everything looks...

    Dell Alienware 34" 120hz 21:9 G-Sync monitor $719.99

    I have had mine for a few weeks now and think it is the best monitor I have ever had. I do have some small bleeds at both bottom left and right side when going into sleep mode. I do not see that effect when browsing or playing a game. The color is even across the monitor and no dead pixels. I am...

    I agree with returning the monitor. Dell will probably ship you the replacement before they receive yours. Give them a call.

    AW3418DW

    Received my monitor this afternoon. All I can say is WOW! I have a corner desk and it just slides in the hutch opening I have on top of the desk. All I have done or needed to do was adjust the brightness a few notches and turn off the power saver. Colors are very sharp, no dead pixels that I can...

    That is good to hear! I have never paid this much for a monitor and had hopes it would live up to the cost. Glad to hear you like it.

    Dell 3417W or AW3418DW?

    Tried to get Dell to price match this morning. They wouldn't because it was on sale at Newegg. Egg has the price and I will buy it there. Many thanks for the heads up on Egg.

    Dell 3417W or AW3418DW?

    I didn't see anything about the Dell to know what the use was. Maybe the Alienware will come down a bit next month.

    Dell 3417W or AW3418DW?

    Getting the urge to upgrade my 27" dell to something larger. Only difference I can see between the two is the Dell supports 1.07 billion colors and the Alienware supports 16.7 million colors. Machine has a 1080 gpu and a 6700K cpu with 16GB memory. $300 difference between the 2 monitors. 1st...

    2560 x 1440 or 1920 x 1080?

    Tried it, found it to be different than I remembered it. Maybe I am use to the 2560x1440? Funny but when I started playing the game it was in 1920 x 1080 and never thought anything of it. Text was much more readable in the 1920 res. Just that the game screen felt different and odd. I really...

    2560 x 1440 or 1920 x 1080?

    Thinking of changing monitors but I don't know about the res difference. I am looking at this monitor: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Y27f-27-Inch-FHD-LED-Lit/dp/B01FXDVZF2?th=1 The post for this monitor says that g sync is by AMD that isn't correct is it? My current monitor is a 2560 x 1440 27"...

    Sound card or onboard sound for gaming?

    i have a Gigabyte Z170 gaming 5 board I have been using for a year or two now. When it was set up I was advised to use the onboard sound as it was as good as any sound card available. In my old system I had a Xonar sound card I was pretty happy using. I do not have any complaints about this...

    Dell S2716DG, 27" 2560x1440 144hz 1ms "G-Sync Gen II", DP+HDMI

    I have had this monitor for awhile now and can find nothing wrong with it. This is the biggest screen I have ever had and am really enjoying it. Primary focus is gaming and it works quite well. If you get one i hope you enjoy it as much as I am.

    Getting old and starting to dislike video games? Maybe it's not you.

    I am 72 and have been playing games since I bought my Apple 2 in 1986. I love games but age takes it out of you. I no longer play online games as they just take too long to accomplish a goal. The last year I played online I felt like I was more a hostage than a participant. I avoid jumping...

    Older Steam games

    Do the older Steam games run on the newer computers? I would like to play the Thief series but as I remember there were some problems with it and new computers on install. I bought Deus Ex human revolution and never could get it to play on my machine. Steam refunded my money after I gave up...

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    I am waiting on delivery of a Seasonic 850, hopefully today. The PSU did ok until I installed the 1080Ti. Guess that card was too much for the PSU.

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    I am going to buy the seasonic first then ask Corsair about a replacement. I gamed most of the weekend and it was only this morning that it crashed. I would feel better with a new PSU at this point.

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    Since I switched the cables I had not had a problem until this morning. I was watching a U tube review of Turok and the computer just shut down again. If I put the 970 back in I can play the same video without crashing. Just not sure what to do at this point.

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    I just finished watching the u tube video I was trying to watch during the crashes. I switched out the cables to a pair I had not previously used. I got through the video without any crashes, so I am going to assume it was one of the pins not making complete contact with the card. All my...

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    I can e mail them and ask. This PSU isn't a modular so I can't just switch out cables. At this point I wouldn't be adverse to just buying a new PSU until I can get this one sorted out.
