    Windows 10 gremlins.

    I have the free upgrade from Windows 7 now on both my PC's. The are both Win 10 home. I am generally happy with 10 but the stinking gremlins in it is driving me nuts! I disable system restore and check back after awhile and it is re-enabled. Same thing with the windows driver dl option. I set...

    Can't turn off Windows 7 update.

    IE 11 has been running like crap, almost unusable in my AM1 Windows 7 rig. So I went in to IE advanced options and reset the browser. Rebooted and opened up IE 11 and it popped up a tab that downloaded and installed about 8 things, while there was a little Windows 10 icon sitting in the quick...

    Steam Hacked, Christmas 2015!

    411, Stay away from Steam, and possible Origin for the time being. I was on Steam and it went Chinese or something like that, and it had an install Steam tab at the top. YIKES! I hope my accounts are still good! I have 2 on 2 different PC's that were both online.

    Metal Gear Solid for PC.

    I am happy I just got MGS1 for the PC. I got it NIB in the 3 game Action Pack from back in the day. All I wanted was MGS, and got tired of bidding and loosing and then this popped up for under $40 shipped, and buy it now, Sweet! I now have all the available MG games for PC. Just waiting on MGS5...

    AMD AM1, use XP sp3 build for an XP install.

    ^ (1-5-15) Thread title has been changed by me, after finding out I just needed to be more technologically advanced. :slap: Well I found out the hard way, after buying the parts, that the AM1 platform doesn't have video drivers for Windows XP. I saw the AM1 boards list support for XP and the...

    MSI 970 Gaming board.

    I see the MSI 970 Gaming board now on the Egg. It looks pretty good with it's black and red color scheme, complimenting the GSkill Trident X ram. The boards overview list audio as Creative Sound Blaster Cinema 2, yet the board specs. say Realtek ALC1150. What is up with this? It has the Killer...

    I cant get XP on my AM3+ 970 rig?

    I am going nuts here. Ever since I changed over from my 790/X4 965/ddr2 board I can not get XP to work on my new rig (in user specs). It worked great before with 2 hdd's and a selector switch. Win 7 loaded right up after the board swap, and looked fine even before the AMD driver refresh. XP...

    Kaveri or FX for a new AMD build?

    I have read all I can find on the Kaveri at this time, but the reviews aren't answering my question. I would like to see a FM2+/Phenom II comparison. At this time what would be the better choice for a casual gamer wanting a new AMD build, FX or FM2+? I know the FX line is dead in the water, but...

    Call Of Juarez.

    I picked up Call Of Juarez Gunslinger on sale at the last Steam sale. This game is Awesome! I bought the 1st COJ as an import back at the launch of the DX11 days. And COJ BIB at its launch, and all three have not disappointed. Every time I see the water in the COJ games, I swear these guys have...

    1yr down. Is BF4 alone worth the jump to Win 8?

    BF4 is near. Win 8 has been out for about a year. Is BF4 a good enough reason by it's self to make the move to Win 8? I played the BF4 beta on my 7850/Win 7 rig and it looked/ran stealer. I am thinking a R9 gpu or a maybe a 79xx would be money better spent for current Win 7 users...

    Why no game bundle for new AMD R series?

    I see the new R series AMD cards are available to purchase now, but I don't see any Never Settle game bundle being included with them. I am thinking a new Sapphire R270X would be a good upgrade for my trusty 7850 2G vanilla. Any insider info if the R series will be included in the Never Settle...

    [FS][US] GPU Cooler, NIB.

    I have a Coolink GFXChilla that I never used. It is new in the box, unused, from a clean smoke free house. It has two 10x80mm fans, but it also can take two 80mm fans of your choice, that is why I bought it. I have been happy with the cooling on my Sapphire cards and so I have not used it. I...

    How do you fully get rid of deleted files?

    I recently found the program Recuva from Piriform. I ran the scan for pictures and was surprised at the "deleted" pics in found on my computer. Pics I never downloaded. Pics that must have been in the background of web pages I have visited, image searches etc. I see in the progy I can overwright...

    Keep my set up a little longer?

    Next month my rig will be 2 years old. The AM3+ and FM1 platforms make me think I should just get a X6 1100T and a 7xxx card and get another year, or maybe two out of it. I don't want to go Intel. Should I just forget about the X6 1100T altogether?
