    280x multi-monitor window lag when video playing

    I recently got a second monitor for use with my R9 280x graphics card. It's an AOC LED monitor but that is probably irelevant to the issue I am having. I have noticed now, that when I am running a video, either in VLC, Youtube or WMP or a game that I might have displayed on one monitor, if I...

    Microsoft Reveals Main Windows 8 Editions

    No reason why they should work. Windows 8 is basically what Windows 7 was to Vista, an extension/upgrade rather than total remake of the OS. Drivers for certain things will need updates but not all, and applications will only need an update if they want to use the Metro UI.

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    If I install this, I like it and keep it, when the RC or final release of Windows 8 comes out, will I be able to upgrade my "beta" into the final release or will it require a reinstall?

    AMD Designing Next-Gen Playstation's GPU

    Does this mean its going to perform less than Sony make it out to? :laugh: EDIT: Completely read that as CPU and not GPU. Forgive me, AMD make half decent GPU's.

    Have fraps running when you open Crysis, you will see it will be running about 2000fps. :laugh:

    Which monitor should I buy?

    The Asus monitor has the largest dynamic contrast ratio, although I think all 3 have the same static ratio (Which I hear is the important number). If I get it from Amazon, I can get it on next day delivery.

    Do they offer the option for next day delivery?

    Which monitor should I buy?

    Hello! Sorry if this is the wrong forum to be asking this! So I am looking to buy a new monitor to replace my crappy Acer 23" LCD. I have narrowed down my choices to 3 monitors and I need help choosing which one. I do a whole range of things on my computer but I mostly game. All 3 are LED, they...

    'Whine' from GPU under high frame rate?

    Uh I don't know if I came across wrong or something but all I did was reply that its definitely not the fan, I am not computer illiterate, I do know the difference between electrical noise and physical noise from a fan. There was no need to reply with such an attitude there.

    'Whine' from GPU under high frame rate?

    Should have mentioned that in my original post. :banghead: Its definitely not the fan, I know that for fact, I have tried setting it to a constant 40% (Default value), constant 100% and auto.

    'Whine' from GPU under high frame rate?

    Should I be worried about it? I don't even need to use V-sync, I can just use the console command 'fps_max 120'. It happens if I overvolt or not, I'm not pushing it to the edge or anything, its running at 1062mv. It happens at stock voltage and even at 1100mv. Thanks for the quick replys guys!

    'Whine' from GPU under high frame rate?

    I have noticed a strange whining noise coming from my graphics card. It only seems to happen when I am playing a game in which I have a high frame rate. The most noticeable game for this is Team Fortress 2, I hit 300fps constant and the whine is huge, if I lock the frame rate down to 120, the...

    Radeon HD 7950 Specifications Leaked

    I haven't been paying much attention to the 7xxx series posts but could someone just give me a Yes/No answer to my question? Is this series of cards looking like a quick "refresh" series similar to the 8000 to 9000 series Nvidia did?

    GTX 460 random GPU utilization issues?

    Potential disambiguation with your post but nonetheless it sounds like you are trying to say a 2500k performs the same as your Celeron. SIGH. First off straight away, your using a game that is a completely GPU dominant game, not CPU. Secondly, you have just automatically shown me that your...

    GTX 460 random GPU utilization issues?

    Now the denial sets in. I just want to point out that none of your benchmarks that you have posted show your CPU at all. Brand does have something to do with it, whether you like it or not, the entire point of "brands" is the fact that some are better than others. Yes I am. Do not be ignorant...

    GTX 460 random GPU utilization issues?

    He is trying to see if your CPU is bottlenecking. Look at the benchmarks. http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Intel+Celeron+G530+%40+2.40GHz Your CPU is lower than alot of MOBILE CPU's. The Q8200 chip had similar performance to that of a Q6600, in the benchmarks posted above, the...

    GTX 460 random GPU utilization issues?

    Your looking at a very "unheavy" point in terms of CPU ultilization, I myself have only recently upgraded my CPU, I went from a Q8200 to a Core i5 2500k. I would say a Q8200 is better than a celeron, my framerate in GTA IV went up well in excess of 200%. The point under the train bridge is...

    GTX 460 random GPU utilization issues?

    The problem is the CPU. Straight off, no matter what you say about your old card, a Celeron can not play Mafia 2.
