    Wow! This is William. I just got an email from Cybermedia saying that I won the B250GT5. I know they are a PR firm in Taiwan. Is this for real? :eek:

    Editorial AMD Didn't Get the R9 Fury X Wrong, but NVIDIA Got its GTX 980 Ti Right

    This. Also, 4K gaming is still too early (IMHO) and I am guessing most PC gamers play their games on a 21-27" desktop monitor, 2 feet from their face instead of sitting on a couch 10 feet from the TV. 4K makes no sense on unless you're playing games on a 50"+ screen.

    The specs on Raidmax website says you can mount a 200mm fan in the front. Can you confirm this? I cannot tell from the pics.

    Laptop not switching to dedicated GPU

    I just bought a Lenovo Y50 with a Intel 4600 and Geforce GTX 860M 4GB. I updated to the latest drivers and playing games seems to run fine. I was able to play BF3, Tera, TF2 at good speeds. Lately, I tried to play the games again and I noticed the image quality looked a lot different and ran...

    Lenovo Readies Y50 Refresh with GTX 960M Graphics and IPS Display

    Damn, I just bought a Lenovo (1080p version) with a 860M GTX 4GB (Maxwell). I wonder how a 960M will perform compared to 860M.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Specs Confirmed

    What would this say about mobile solution? 860m is already based on Maxwell, if this is a "960m" coming along, would it be any better than the 860m?

    Would it be easier to install linux on the other hard drive, delete the linux from the 3TB drive, and update GRUB the way you described above?

    moving my linux mint partition to another hard drive

    Hello. I have a 3TB hard drive with Win7 occupying around 2.1TB and Linux Mint (Ubunutu) occupying 600GB. I have a spare 1TB hard hard. I want to move the Linux Mint to the other hard drive. How do I properly do this? And how do I properly edit GRUB# which is the current bootloader? Thanks.

    Triple boot XP (32bit), 7 (64bit), Ubuntu (64bit) on a single 3TB drive

    How do I seamlessly make a triple boot of XP (32bit), 7 (64bit), Ubuntu (64bit) on a single 3TB hard drive without needing to switch between UEFI and BIOS? I'm trying to make 7 the largest partition, and the other two smaller. I know MBR has a 2TB limit, but is that limit per drive or per...

    750GT SLI or 760GTX --> for laptop?

    Just like the subject says. Price wise, on newegg, with all others things nearly equally, a laptop with either of the two GPU configurations cost almost the same. So which one will be better? Thanks!

    looking for budget laptop for graphics and stuff

    Hello all, I want to look for a laptop for a relative who is in college and is using/learning autodesk 3D MAX and autoCAD. I understand quadro and firepro systems are expensive. So for college kids who typically don't have money, what type of GPU/laptop is reasonable for a college student...

    Lian Li Readies the PC-V358 Mini Tower PC Case

    I think the trend towards mini system is great. I love the fact the itx boards are as powerful as the ATX boards, especially the ASUS line. To answer your question, it all comes down to preference. Like comparing to cars, you like mustang 5.0 or WRX. Although mini form factor is very...

    BitFenix Introduces the Phenom PC Chassis

    Did BF drill new holes for the feet? My Prodigy case is not in front of me at the moment, but I don't remember there being any screw holes underneath the case to allow case stands or feet

    BitFenix Introduces the Phenom PC Chassis

    same as prodigy? Is it me or is the main body of the case the same exact thing as Prodigy? Looks like the top and front can be interchangeable with the Phenom. I own a Prodigy, and the hinges/latches/holes look the same.

    Thanks. Is there a brand/model you would recommend?

    best/strongest 150mm length PSU

    Need to find the strongest/best 150mm length (preferable) that can power an OC'ed 2600k with a GTX690 and 2 hard drives to fit in a Bitfenix Prodigy. I know 160mm PSU will fit but many people it is a tough fit. Would I be able to find a 150mm PSU that can do a good job?

    Bitfenix Prodigy!!!

    Anyone know if a Corsair AX1200 would fit in the Prodigy using the Lian Li PSU extension? Would drilling be required to fit the Lian Li extension on the Prodigy?

    NAS laptop with a mediasonic external USB

    Thinking about building a NAS using my laptop with a non-raid 4-bay mediasonic. Every time I read about NAS, like FreeNAS, always talk about RAID, but I cannot raid with this box. Furthermore, I already have data in these hard drives. Do I need to format the drives in order to use FreeNAS...
