    How many people still use sound cards?

    -Sound Blaster Live (died, which explains my avatar) it was really cool when the unofficial kx drivers were installed. -Emu 0404 for making music. It also died. It was the best sounding card I ever had, -Sound Blaster Audigy RX for ASIO 2.0 music playing and recording. Very good sound card...

    Unable to boot from old ssd after installing M.2

    I own two motherboards that have one M.2 port each. An MSI A320 Grenade and a Gigabyte AB350 Gaming In one of the motherboards when installing an M.2 everything goes fine, but in the other motherboard you get 1 or 2 sata ports disabled, depending on which M.2 you install. If its a SATA M.2 you...

    FineWine===>FineVinegar FuryX Aging Horrible in 2017

    I personally don't believe in "good aging" of hardware in general. But sometimes you have a winner in the purchase game and sometimes you don't.

    How to Schedule Auto shutdown when internet get disconnected?

    I think I know what you mean, so what's happening is that the computer shutdowns when you turn it on, as it detects there's no internet (because system is booting) I would try this: shutdown -s -f -t 60 -c "Internet disconnected." and shutdown /a the first command will shutdown your...

    hdd 100% usage

    HDD 100% is a windows 10 known problem, you must install windows updates for the problem to go away (not sure which update solves this, but I always install all updates for windows). If you need to resolve the issue right now, without installing any update, just disable superfetch service...

    PC problem?

    Of course you have the right to your own opinion. As I do. But lets face it, if it wasn't for ryzen intel wouldn't be that worried, releasing great processors like the i7 8000 at a much affordable cost than before. We have to be agree on this...

    Help with biostart b350 gt3 motherboard

    The GT5 is quite better, and its only 70 bucks. Still there are better options there for around 100 bucks, but I'm not an overclocker.

    Stripped GPU heatsink Screw

    I have to be honest, I had exactly the same problem once and I just turned clockwise the whole heatsink while pulling it up. Not the best method I agree...

    PC problem?

    no its not "finicky" and its not "less plug n play", I just had to update bios version to get the most of ram speed tho. What happened to the GPU and smoke and whatever is platform independant. Sh*t just happens. You can't blame it on intel or AMD.

    Computer shuts down when playing a game

    Most likely, check just in case if the fan cooler spins... Yes, but we must not forget that a psu could be unstable on low load too.

    Why was I so positive 16:10 was the future of gaming? ... 21:9 is king?

    I own an 21:9 AOC ultra wide and sometimes I feel I need more vertical space, but I'm on "productivity" not a gamer.

    I have a ryzen 7 1700... but my GPU is a RX470... also I don't have the game. But if I borrow a copy I'll try to test it out. Not sure about how to make a youtube streaming and gaming at the same time, I'll check it out.

    AMD Ryzen 1400/1600/1700 massive bottleneck in GTA 5

    Man, AMD ryzen is a amazing processor. Its one of the best processors for gaming among intel processors. The difference is 10% compared intel cpus in single threaded performance. We all know that. There's no way that extended distance scaling works ok on any system. If you think extended...

    AMD Ryzen 1400/1600/1700 massive bottleneck in GTA 5

    If the CPU is the bottleneck why is not 100% in use? To me its GPU memory going whaco. I mean, <<CPU is not 100% >> and <<GPU is not 100%>> = memory bandwith not enough. Poor optimization also. I also don't believe in the youtubers video opinion either. As I told before, I've seen the same...

    Probably poor optimization or GPU memory being the bottleneck.

    I think I found my new monitor... but only on Amazon

    Just personal opinion here, I always go AOC, either for TV or monitor. I've got a 29" ultra wide non-curve and it was the best purchase I made in years. Hope it lasts
