    Linksys AC1750 vs AC1900

    I'm looking at two routers. The EA6900 vs EA7400 The EA6900 is the AC1900 and cheaper than the EA7400 which is a AC1750. Even their MSRP is cheaper on the AC1900 router. What gives? Isn't the AC1900 suppose to be better if so why is the 1750 more money. I'm trying to make a decision and kinda...

    Turning off monitor stops video card form working

    So it was an issue with DP. I switched over to an HDMI cable and issue gone. That is really strange, I thought DP was supposed to be more "advanced"

    Turning off monitor stops video card form working

    This is a free sync monitor, but the 970 doesn't support it so I am not using it. Connected via DP All power settings have been disabled. I normally just turn the monitor off manually (I tried the auto off before and same thing). Maybe something in the BIOS?

    Turning off monitor stops video card form working

    Hello, I have a GTX 970 on a Asrock B450 board. If I need to afk on a game, I will normally turn off the monitor, only to come back with the game crashed. I found the culprit to be the monitor turn off. If I leave the monitor on, no crash. I think the video card is going into some kind of...

    Computer not starting up most of the time

    This just started recently happening where if I power on, nothing happens. I see some lights on the motherboard(RGB), but beyond that nothing (no num lock of any of the keyboard lights, no mouse RGB lights) and ofcourse black screen. If I shut down and keep powering on eventually it will boot...

So lets say I get a 970 and go ahead a buy a 75 Hz monitor with free sync. can I still use the 75Hz display, just without the active sync right? or will...

    wtb socket 1155 motherboard

    Looking for cheap as possible that can take a x16 GPU. Everything else is pretty much gravy. Would like 4x memory slots, but can live with 2. Don't care about overclock as I don't have a k CPU. Ivy bridge support would be awesome for future i7, but again not really required Any size

    cheap way to get internet at my CCTV box

    It requires a wired connection and it would be crazy to run a cat5 there from my router. Can I buy another router or something and use the internal switch inside of that to connect to the box ? Thank you

    AM3 to AM4

    So I've finally decided to give up my Phenom II and go Ryzen. Can I be lazy and just put in the old SSD into the new mobo? I really don't want to do a reinstall of everything. I will though if there will be great benefit! Thank you!

    mobo not detecting drives

    Hello everyone. My MSI 785G-E53 mobo all of a sudden stopped detecting all my hard drives. I don't have any RAID setup, just 1 SSD and 2x regular drives in AHCI mode. If I do a reset on BIOS it will pick it back up, work for a few days and then loose it again. Any idea what's going on? Trying...

    WTS: AMD Phenom II x2 555 BE + MSI 785G mobo combo

    CPU runs great, It does unlock to 4 cores, although I've never run it too much with 4 cores as this was just a browsing PC and I wanted to extend life as much as possible. The motherboard does have video card built in so no need for a separate card. Looking to get $100 shipped or make me an offer.

    A too rare thanks to XFX support/rma staff

    I just wanted to chime in that I also had a great experience with xfxsupport gentleman here at the forum. He was able to clear up some issues for me. Here's to hoping I get my card fixed or they don't send me a lower model in return.

    Taking a while to "get internet" after a boot.

    It looks like it was the antivirus. I removed it and did a proper reinstall(I still have 6 months left on this key) and I don't have that delay anymore. Thanks for your suggestions guys!

    Does the public even know of Stock / Vanilla Android ?

    My father went from a Galaxy S2 to a Moto G(pretty much stock), and it was like learning a new phone for him. People rave about the stock Android, but it is not so much easy to use when going from Touchwhiz/sense, etc. Unless you have time to look around and add your own apps, etc it's not that...
