    Advise on buying for multi-monitor setup

    I'm looking to upgrade both me and my girlfriends displays, but since we got multi-monitor setup (old BenQ GW2670's) they can't be too expensive, so instead of just throwing money at expensive screens and hoping for the best any advice on good-for-gaming displays matching the following without...

    [plz delete] ASUS ROG Swift PG278QE still worth buying?

    EDIT: I just got told that it doesn't support Freesync and since back in 2015 I'm no longer running Nvidia cards. Sorry for wasting your time :dead: So way back in 2015 I was looking at the ASUS ROG Swift PG278QE display but never got around to actually order it. Is it still worth buying or are...

    How to test for PCI-Express bottleneck?

    Hello experts :) I'm running a brand spanking new GPU on a very dusty motherboard. Is it possible somehow to see the PCI-Express bus utilization and if it is bottlenecking the GPU? I know you can google some tests, opinions and theoretical numbers but I'd like to be able to see/test it myself...

    Help picking AMD CPU

    I'm completely out of the loop on hardware these days so would someone mind giving me some advice on what would be a good upgrade? I'm thinking a boost in performance like ~50% (see link below for current specs) and the ability to upgrade CPU for as long as possible. Usage is something like 60%...

    New GPU in old board. How fast?

    Hello experts. My GPU died and I'm totally lost in the jungle. What is the fastest card I can put in my old machine without having a huge bottleneck? I5 2500k @ 4,6 Sabertooth P67 (only has PCI-e 2 x 16) 12gb RAM My monitor is 1080p 60hz.

    Fastest RAM in an old Sabertooth p67?

    I'm about to get some new RAM to overclock an I5 2500k but I'm unsure what I can use in this motherboard. ASUS' site says up to 1866 but I see tests (like DigitalFoundry's) that recommend paring the CPU with 2133. Can I run that in the Sabertooth?

    How fast a GPU before bottleneck?

    Hello experts. I'm looking at upgrading GPU but I'm unsure how high I can go before it will be bottlenecked too much by the rest of the system. Currently the system is a I5 2500k @ 3,?ghz with a R9 380 4GB. The motherboard is an ASUS Sabertooth P67 (PCIe 2.0 x16). So, how high can I go...

    Another "For the love of god help me get rid of buzzing/mic noice!" thread

    So, I have quite a lot of noise on my microphone and to not annoy those I talk with I'd really like to fix it. Sadly I have no idea how. The noise is either from all the stuff I have connected in my living-room or from the power outlet as it is a problem in both my PC and my PlayStation 4 (same...

    New card or use an old one?

    Simple question (though I have no idea if the answer is simple too): I was happy with my onboard audio (the ASUS Sabertooth P67 has a Realtek ALC892) until I needed to use my microphone for Mumble. Yikes! So. Much. Noise! So now I'm thinking, do I need to buy a new dedicated card or is my old...

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    EDIT: Going to grab a Gigabyte GTX 770 with a Windforce X3. Hello experts :) So I'm thinking about upgrading my GPU and last I asked I was told to wait. Well it has been a while now. Mostly it's to get my PC to shut up now that it has become nice and quiet otherwise, but more power is...

    Case with room for 3x5.25 (hdd's in enclosures)?

    I'm looking for a htpc case that can hold three internal disks in cooling enclosures (5.25) either internal or internal + the CD drive bay. Any on the market that isn't huge two level boxes? If not, then with room for two at least?

    Multi usage server/HTPC: Xeon or FX CPU?

    Hello experts. My old trusty atom file-server just died on me, so I need some advice on CPU choice before I build a new one. I had almost ordered the Intel Xeon E3-1225 V2, but now I'm in doubt if the AMD FX (8350 Black?) would be a better choice, since my server will often be doing multiple...

    Sony PS3 Pulse Elite vs. Mad Catz Tritton 720+

    Well, which should I buy you think? :confused: I know there are other choices out there, but these are the ones I have found available around here for a good price. They are mainly for gaming on the PS3 (PS4?) but also for PC gaming use.

    Does having Win on a SSD make a difference in-game?

    Hello experts (: I'm a Linux user running games in WINE but have a few that requires Windows to work. Now I'm unsure if having Windows on my SSD would make any difference (in-game!) compared to just having the game on it? In other words, would having Windows on my SSD disk make any difference...

    Spend ~$300 on my rig

    Yeah I know, not the most original thread ever, but I thought it would be interesting to see what others would upgrade my stuff with, for around US $ 200-300. I tend to end up looking at a single very expensive piece of hardware if I browse around myself, so any ideas would be appreciated, just...

    Need advice: RAM overclocking

    Hello experts :) So I'm thinking about grabbing a new CPU soon (looking at a Q9505) but first I want to play around a bit with my current one. I'm new to overclocking but I had a go at it anyway and so far nothing smells burnt :p I'm not sure about my RAM though. It seems it cannot go above...

    Do I need to upgrade and to what?

    Hello experts. I'm in need of advice about my PC. I play ArmA 2 and I'm having problems with very low FPS (>30 avage in benchmark 1). If I ALT + TAB out while gaming my CPU seems to be okay (>40 % most of the time) so I'm guessing it is my graphic card. Could someone tell me if it is indeed...

    Random RAM errors and game crashes

    Hello experts :) I have some kind of error that I can't seem to find the cause of. I'll try to explain in detail what is wrong and what I have tried to correct it. The error that started it all was some games crashing to desktop with a message that "The driver stopped responding" (and the...
