    Suggestions to run 3 QHD 32" displays on a laptop

    Wanted to say thanks DoubleTap! I have the Plugable adapter you linked for me sitting on my desk now and it's working great so far. Really appreciate you letting me know that it exists as it's doing exactly what I need. Have all three 32" displays setup and running great at native resolution...

    Suggestions to run 3 QHD 32" displays on a laptop

    I had the same fantasy but realize I probably wouldn't travel with it anyway. I'm usually hard pressed enough to bring the dock for my Nintendo Switch.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like this could work for both of my laptops. I'm going to give it a shot, appreciate it!

    Suggestions to run 3 QHD 32" displays on a laptop

    Unfortunately no TB3 on my version of the Latitude 7490, that would have been awesome. Thanks for all the help! Out of curiosity, which eGPU dock did you go with?

    Suggestions to run 3 QHD 32" displays on a laptop

    Spun Ducky and jeremyshaw , you're both absolutely right, laptop model would definitely help; sorry for not including that. I'm using a Dell Latitude 7490 so nothing fancy. Also have an old Sager NP8658 / Clevo P650RG but I know that will be more of a struggle with no USB-C. I'm fine with...

    Suggestions to run 3 QHD 32" displays on a laptop

    Hey all, long time no [H]. I want to run three 32" Monitors (LG 32GK650F / 32GK850F) on my laptop at their native QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution. I've tried a couple of different docks / port replicators but so far nothing that can handle all 3 at this resolution, or even 2 of them. I'd love to...

    Fallout 3 sucks. There I said it.

    I have to completely agree with this. From the 8 or so hours I've actually been able to put into the game my most frequent thought has been how there is a camp, a place to loot, or some type of something to check out across every road or over every hill. It just doesn't have the feel of a 200...

    Consumer Box or "Prosumer" Router AP Setup for AC Upgrade?

    My venerable old DLink DIR-655 is finally starting to require frequent reboots and is nearing the end of its useful life. I also have a new laptop on the way with 802.11ac capability so the time has come to upgrade to a new routing solution with wireless ac capability. The network in my...

    USB stops when connecting to network.....

    I got the problem resolved. Managed to get the computer hooked up via ethernet and there were new drivers for the DWA-552 available via Windows Update. Installed those and everything works great now. Just wish they had been available on D-Link's site. -Jade

    Computer freezes when connecting to network.

    It was a driver issue as everyone thought. I connected via ethernet and ran Windows Update which had a new version of the driver. Everything works great now. I just wish that D-Link had that driver update on their website. -Jade

    Computer freezes when connecting to network.

    I brought it downstairs and it's running off of the ethernet fine; I'm posting from it now. I had the card installed in my old XP machine before it went into the new build and it was working brilliantly. I have to assume the card is good. I figured it was a driver or hardware conflict...

    Computer freezes when connecting to network.

    I don't have ethernet to connect it to, unfortunately that's why I need the wireless. I also do not have another wireless card but I am trying to get my hands on one. -Jade

    Computer freezes when connecting to network.

    Hey all, I could really use some help with this. My new build (specs in my sig) is complete and everything is running well with one exception. Whenever I attempt to connect to my wireless network the computer freezes completely. Vista finds the network, I select connect, and it asks for my...

    USB stops when connecting to network.....

    I dug out an old PS/2 keyboard and that freezes as well when I try to connect to the wireless network. At least with the PS/2 keyboard I can get into the motherboard bios; can't do that with the USB keyboard. The USB mouse will start working right away but the keyboard doesn't power up until...

    Project: Silence

    Sorry to hear the P7N didn't work out for you. I'm still in the process of getting mine setup and running stable before I try to overclock it. Right now it freezes all the USB ports whenever I try to connect to my wireless network..... good stuff. I'm hoping it's an easy resolution but we'll...

    USB stops when connecting to network.....

    I just finished my new build (specs are in my sig) and whenever I attempt to connect to my wireless network all of my USB devices (including my keyboard and mouse) freeze. I then have to restart the computer and everything is fine, until of course I attempt to connect to the network again...

    Why are there no good keyboards to choose from?

    Are you sure you're not thinking of the Saitek Cyborg that just came out (only at Circuit City so far it would seem)? There are a couple of reviews and first impressions around, I'm thinking about picking one up. -Jade

    Problems... and pictures!

    Syribo, I still don't think it would be a bad idea to try each card individually, or at least leave SLI off for a bit until you get things sorted out. I know you want to get things all running the way you want them right away (I would too!) but it might make life easier if you do things in baby...

    What mobo issues are you having SC? My machine is together with the exception of the DVD drive, the video card, and some Arctic Silver. We'll see if she'll post tomorrow after work. Keep going Syribo, you're nearly there. What did you have to do to get your flash drive to finally load the...

    SC, can you leave that bios up for a few more hours? I'd like to grab it so that I can use it for my new P7N that's going together tonight/tomorrow. Syribo, don't get discouraged, you can do it. Just imagine how much you're learning! -Jade

    Why are there no good keyboards to choose from?

    I have a Lycosa, which may be for sale soon. It's a very nice keyboard but not really my thing. It has the soft laptop style keys which are also "rubberized" for an even softer, plusher feel. They are also extremely quiet. Turning the backlight off takes just a press of the touch panel on...

    Q&A on new build.

    Looks like a solid build but you might be paying a few dollars too much for some items. I just completed buying for my first build in more than 5 years and it's a fairly similar parts list. The major difference is I went with a 780i based board to go SLI in the future as I will be gaming on a...

    Problems... and pictures!

    SC is right, the P7N doesn't let you set the CPU voltage specifically, it lets you add additional voltage as needed over your CPU's stock voltage. It is kind of a silly system but I guess it works. -Jade

    Problems... and pictures!

    You might want to remove one of your video cards and then run 3DMark and play some Crysis. Then switch the cards and run 3DMark and Crysis again with the other card installed. If you get errors with one and not the other then you'll have a strong indication of what your issue might be. -Jade

    Rocketfish Aluminum Full Tower Case--BestBuy Clearance $71.99

    Oh sweet mercy... stupid high employee turnover. If you ask at Customer Service they should definitely know, if not ask the manager, they should remember. :rolleyes: All they need to do is go into RSS and input the SKU (8428604) and they can pull up a list of all the stores in the area that...

    Rocketfish Aluminum Full Tower Case--BestBuy Clearance $71.99

    If you take a ride across the Walt Whitman to the BB in Deptford, NJ, they have the Rocketfish case for $47. I'd have your local store double check their stock of course but it might be worth a ride over for you. -Jade

    New Build

    I agree with enginurd, get the 640GB Western Digital WD6400AAKS instead. It's nearly as fast as the Raptor, is quieter, and uses less power. It just came back in stock at Newegg last night: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136218 -Jade

    Western Digital 640GB or Samsung F1 750GB?

    Got a notification last night (but didn't see it until this morning) from Newegg that the WD 640GB was back in stock. I cancelled my order, as it was still in processing status at ZZF, for the Samsung and got the WD instead. I should get it tomorrow as it ships from 2 towns over. :D -Jade

    Western Digital 640GB or Samsung F1 750GB?

    I decided to just buy the Samsung F1 750GB from ZipZoomFly. This is my first build in more than 5 years and I have no patience to wait for the WD 640GB or buy it from an unknown seller. I'm sure it'll be a great drive. -Jade

    Western Digital 640GB or Samsung F1 750GB?

    I may be mistaken but isn't the Seagate both louder and slower than either the Samsung 750GB or the WD640GB? Is there a reason I should pick that drive over the Samsung at the same price? -Jade

    Western Digital 640GB or Samsung F1 750GB?

    Hey all, I need a hard drive to complete my new build and the WD WD6400AAKS is looking like the drive of choice as I'd like something fast and quiet, lower power requirements are always good as well. I bought most of my other components from Newegg but they are out of stock on the...

    First build in 5+ years; advice much appreciated.

    I have edited my original post to reflect what I decided to purchase last night. Thankfully the 8800GTS deal at Buy.com was still good after a little server issue so I picked one of those up as well. Now I have everything I need for the new build aside from the hard drive (anyone know a good...

    Looking for build advice :)

    Congrats on your first build! I'm hoping you've got everything humming along nicely now. You'll need to post pics soon. :cool: Don't worry about the DOA hard drive, it happens. Much better to have a dead hard drive, which isn't really that hard to figure out, that a screwy mobo or flaky...
