    Windows 10 KB3213986 Update Cripples Multi-monitor Gaming

    wait seriously? you complain about unreliable OS for Win10 but then claim to be on a problem free 8.1? Windows 10 is the most stable OS since Windows 7 in its current form. It's VERY stable and VERY reliable. sure this patch is a boo boo but dang man, win 8 especially as well as 8.1 were FAR...

    AMD RYZEN Brand Name of First Enthusiast "ZEN" CPUs

    how so? core count isn't everything. last generation AMD had 8 'cores' but it directly compared and competed with intel 4 core. its about design and intent of use that it was designed for. These are consumer grade parts meant for the same market as 1151, thats what they should compare to. they...

    MSI Unveils GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Low-profile Graphics Card

    Well yes, seeing how low profile denotes a half height board they are 100% correct. Your looking for a 1.5 slot or slim board. Has nothing to do with low pro.

    GeForce GTX "Pascal" Faces High DVI Pixel Clock Booting Problems

    for me .69 introduced the issue as a problem every single boot up (before it was intermittent) but .81 resolved the issues as you suggested! All is well and back to 120hz

    GeForce GTX "Pascal" Faces High DVI Pixel Clock Booting Problems

    yes, that was weird, Chrome won't let me type anything, the text box is missing in HTML.... Anywho, what I was trying to say was: While the number may be small, the whole Korean monitor shebang was a thing because of those monitors reaching over 120Hz on dual link DVI. Infact I have a...

    GTX1070 FE PCIE Gate

    you're still missing my point. it is totally valid to draw up to 75W on PCIe, there is nothing wrong with that, as that is what it is rated for. In that rating is also a spec for over power spikes that it is expected to handle. your statement only shows that MSI has a 6+8 pin power and...

    GTX1070 FE PCIE Gate

    I htink you're missing the point, there is nothing for NV to fix. go back and look at GTX 9xx / r9 3xx and older generations, power SPIKES will always happen, controllers aren't fast enough to react to instant power request properly. you have essentially started a thread to bash a company for a...

    AMD Demoes its Next-Gen x86 APU Running Fedora Linux

    the point of 128-bit would be what? a Qubit CPU would be much more beneficial for calculations. the advantage of 128 will likely NEVER be needed...

    Home Server/HTPC on Windows 7

    hey guys thanks for all the suggestions... I guess what I'm really looking for is basically a NAS for the second hard drive. I want all my computers to be able to see it (which they can) and be able to add / remove / read all the files on the HDD. I am starting to think Win7 just isn't cut out...

    i5 4670k vs i5 3570k vs i5 2500k

    4670k hands down, just swapped over and am running 4.6Ghz on 1.200 Volts and LOW temps. great CPU with GREAT headroom and the MoBos are 10x better than what you will see for 3570k. also 1150 should be supported next gen so if the 5770k or whatever is an absolute beast you can sell the old and...
