    2560x1440 27" Monitor Advice

    Wow, I looked into these ages ago but decided against it at the time. Forgot how cheap they actually are! Is there a general consensus between which is better between the QNIX or X-Star Samsung PLS. Anyone used accessorieswhole on ebay?

    2560x1440 27" Monitor Advice

    Hi, I'm looking at upgrading my monitor. I'm after a 1440 27" monitor that's good for gaming (e.g. BF4) and movies. I'll be upgrading my GFX card soon to a AMD Radeon R9 290X (once non reference coolers come out) or a GTX 780 (depending on a price drop). At the moment I'm looking at...

    Asus 560 Ti Battlefield 3 texture flickering

    I have exactly the same issue with my GTX 560 (does it in SLI as well but I've disabled that for now). Especially on the larger maps like Caspian. It's definitely not a heating issue and I've got the latest beta drivers as well. I'm going to try and underclock the card as you guys suggested...

    Battlefield 3 Clubhouse

    Caleb I have exactly the same issue on my 560ti with the latest beta drivers and the ones before that too. I was having it in SLI as well but have since taken a card out to see if it fixes the issue (which it doesn't). It's a weird one as it doesn't always seem to happen either and it's...

    New Build Issues - Sandybridge

    Progress! Thanks Cja123 - I got windows to install on the second attempt after swaping the RAM out. So it does look like one of the sticks is faulty. I'm still not sure its all working 100% though. Had a BSOD straight after windows installed - but hey I'm in now so thats a start! Plus I...

    New Build Issues - Sandybridge

    Hi Guys, need a bit of advice (maybe a lot :shadedshu) Just put together a new build, all went fine. Booted first time, installed windows 7 no probs.

    Upgrade itch - 470 Twin Frozr II

    Hi guys, I've got the upgrade itch, dunno why but its probably cause my 260 has been getting hot and making a stupid amount of noise despite cleaning the dust out. At the moment I'm toying with the idea of a MSI GeForce GTX 470 Twin Frozr II. I'm willing to pay a bit more for a non stock...

    [SSD] Discussion and experiences thread

    Recommend a SSD? Hi Guys, was thinking about getting a 60GB SSD to go with Windows 7. I just read that AnanTech article which was a great help, but also made me realise that this stuff is a bit more complicated than picking up a new HDD! I don't want to spend huge money and only really plan...

    Advice on a gaming headset

    I've never used a headset in games before, but I've been playing a lot of left 4 dead and just brought arma II and mic would be really useful. ATM I use my digital Z-5500s with a creative X-FI, but the X-FI uses a flexi jack so I can't use a mic and digital out at the same time. Hence the...

    1 Vista Problem

    This is a fairly common problem if u use wireless on Vista. I think the problem is caused by WLAN AutoConfig. If you google the problem there are several fixes out there. I fixed it by installing Vista Anti Lag (VAL). This worked great for me, and its really simple. If you google it you...

    Is a GTX260 OK for my system???

    Hi guys, I'm thinking of EVGA GTX 260 896Mb to replace my 8800 which struggles with AA and at high resolutions presumably because of its lack of memory. I'm assuming the card wont be completely bottlenecked by my system, its only PCI 1.0 (x16), and my processor isn't exactly the fastest even...

    Logitech Z-5500 Digital Soundroom

    Will it still allow my sound card to up mix mp3s to 5.1 if I use the live pack like it does at the moment with my analogue connections? Also do you think the quality difference is worth the cost of the cable? Thanks

    Logitech Z-5500 Digital Soundroom

    Dolby Digital Live Pack Hi Guys, Was wondering now that the Dolby Digital Live Pack is available whether its worth me splashing out on a digital cable for my X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty and Z-5500s? Does any one know if the live pack works with Vista 64bit? Also what kind of cable...
