    Which Mobile phone can produce best music quality?

    If you're talking about the integrated speakers then there's no way they will ever be as good as a set of PC speakers. They are too small to have any sort of real bass impact and their design is different. As for the audio processing equipment, some can be very decent. For instance the iphone 4...

    MSI GeForce GTX 650Ti OC=£99.98

    Make sure you're looking at the GTX 650 Ti non 'boost' version review. The 'boost' version was released just last week and it's a fair bit better. This version seems to be somewhere between the AMD 7770 and the 7850. Could be worth it if you want the in game credit right enough.

    That's a very fair price but I will leave it sorry. I have exams soon so I shouldn't be playing games anyway!

    Black Screen after minor overclocking

    If your motherboard doens't have a CMOS reset switch you can just take out the cmos battery (small circular battery on the motherboard) for about 5-10 mins and it will reset everything.

    Power supply rails, are these voltage readings ok?

    I am a bit of a noob (despite the fact I can solder!) when it comes to these things but I would have thought that the -12v reading would be closer to -12v or slightly over -12v as the +12v reading is. Same with the -5v. And why can't all the components use +12v?

    Power supply rails, are these voltage readings ok?

    Even the -12v and -5v readings? Can somebody explain the significance of these rails?

    Power supply rails, are these voltage readings ok?

    I have an old x connect 500w power supply from 2004 that had a bulging capacitor so I changed it. I forgot to take before and after readings but do these voltages seem right? Taken with a cheap multimeter but given the age of the PSU there's no point in getting a better one just to test it...

    Soundcard, worth it?

    A sound card is most definitely worth it in your case. That mobo has the ALC892 which is one of Realtek's poorer recent offerings, SNR of about 95db. The ALC898 and ALC889 are the good ones with ~ 105db SNR. The xonar DX is quite highly regarded so i'm sure that would be a worthwhile upgrade...

    Gabe Newell on Windows 8

    I don't see how it can be THAT bad. Can anybody who has used it care to explain why, apart from the omission of the start menu, it's such a failure? Gabe Newell needs to shave...

    Friends PC won't turn on

    I should mention that the power supply is only 2 weeks old

    Friends PC won't turn on

    He was very vague as he doesn't know much about pc's so I can't say for sure. Thanks for the suggestion though I will take along a spare power supply.

    Friends PC won't turn on

    Hey, my friend just text me in a panic saying that his PC has 'died'. He says the lights come on but the fans don't and nothing displays on screen. He also stated that his PC was very warm so naturally I have just assumed that it's overheating and should be fine in the morning. I'm going to see...

    Bad Graphical Performance on my computer

    It's possible that the card is staying on its idle clock speed as that would explain the half performance. Check the catalyst control centre whilst you're in game and see what it reports the clock speed as.
