    Sapphire Hd 7950 unflashable !!

    You're going about this all wrong, most people will find their max stable overclock then flash not the other way around and it seems like you don't have much knowledge or experience in flashing so there's a possibility you could end up killing your card. What is wrong with software OC?

    Spilled Coffee on my Graphics Card - Need help please!

    That's what I'm guessing too as it caused the PC to shut off after it happened, still give it a clean and see if it works, if not you might try and RMA though you "really" shouldn't as it was user error and getting any kind of liquid on electrical items voids the warranty. I have fried a 2500k...

    HD6950 vs. GTX 570 vs. 650 Ti/HD7850

    You joking right? you proceeded to call me n00b before I said anything and you thought that was ok? Still acting like a smart ass who seems more concerned with making me look bad than proving a point, yea course I'm going to take you seriously bro....... :rolleyes: Try talking facts...

    HD6950 vs. GTX 570 vs. 650 Ti/HD7850

    1: I came from a 570 and it did not choke at 1440p despite the lower vRAM, but hey there's a 4GB 9600 gt out there, that must be good? 2: Power consumption flower monsumption, who really cares, we're talking bang for buck, I know it does come across as important but how many people on TPU list...

    Kingston Releases HyperX Beast Enthusiast PC Memory

    My 3 year old Gskill 1600mhz can run at 2000mhz, I see no need to buy RAM these days unless your running older tech (DDR2) or low capacity, something needs to change as the difference between 2000mhz RAM and 2600mhz+ is minimal at best :rolleyes:

    LG EA93 29-Inch Monitor Priced in Europe

    Well done, you obviously didn't read my posts, you can acheive this "wideness" on a standard 1920x1080 screen, the limiting factor in both monitors is the 1080 vertical pixels, but kudos to you if you like having black/white bars down the sides of your monitors and paying $400 for the pleasure.

    HD6950 vs. GTX 570 vs. 650 Ti/HD7850

    That's what I said, though the 6950 and 570 traded blows evenly and the 570 also overclocks ;) I would say if you use HDMI then definately go Nvidia, if you don't care about HDMI then take your pick as they're fairly level on performance.

    HD6950 vs. GTX 570 vs. 650 Ti/HD7850

    650Ti and 7850 don't compare to the 6950/570 so that wittles it down, from the prices you listed the 6950 is the handsdown winner at that res, and may well unlock to a 6970/6970 clocks.

    amd apu a10 5800k

    Knowledgable guy right here, you have helped me quite a few times over the years, albeit without your knowing as I have only been registered for a short time though read TPU for years, most noticeably overclocking SB with the turbo instead of the multi :toast:

    amd apu a10 5800k

    Thank's I stand corrected, I thought it had to be HD 76** series, surely this would have made more sense since the IGP has been updated to 7 series and yielded more benefit, seems as though the IGP on the new A series is little more than the previous version rebadged/tweaked instead of a proper...

    LG EA93 29-Inch Monitor Priced in Europe

    That's a 2nd monitor, see edit, the 2 docs occupy one 1080p screen and again the width isn't the issue, it's the verticle which doesn't have enough pixels to display the whole document length, the same would happen on this monitor only you would have more free space on the sides. Disabled my...

    LG EA93 29-Inch Monitor Priced in Europe

    Example, here's a SS of a webpage and a PDF opened side by side running at 1080p, as you can see the horizontal is plenty for 2 fullscreen documents however to see the PDF in full without resorting to reducing the size you need to increase the verticle pixels, the same will happen on this...

    LG EA93 29-Inch Monitor Priced in Europe

    Whilst you're not wrong, you can still do this on a 1920x1080p monitor and for £/$600 it's really overpriced, like I said if it was £300 it would be a damn nice monitor for the price though at £600 it's very hard to justify when you can get a 27" 1440p monitor for the same cost. I do like the...

    LG EA93 29-Inch Monitor Priced in Europe

    this was 6+ years ago, I can't off the top of my head remember the exact resolution though it was "wider" than widescreen monitors today (possibly anamorphic??). Also this is no where close to 2 1080p monitors if anything it will just give you more free space on each side, they need more Y...

    LG EA93 29-Inch Monitor Priced in Europe

    It's a nice looking monitor though impractical for everyday use, I once bought a really widescreen 15" monitor when LCD's where still a new technology and part from looking good it didn't really serve a fit purpose. They need to up the verticle pixels though then it would be just an 2560x1440...

    OnLive Builds Console-Quality Gaming Into LG Google TVs, No Console Required

    Onlive works pretty well, I tried the free beta and I didn't get any stuttering or noticeable input lag which surprised me, that said it was only single player games I tried (pretty sure multiplayer would see some noticeable lag/stuttering) and the quality is like compressed 720p upscaled to...

    need Ur opinion and answer's to buy an hd 7950 ore 2x 7850

    The Vapor X 7950 is a beast as testiment to many users on here including myself, able to OC much past a 680 and 7970 GHZ edition easily, I hit 1200 core and 1450+ vRAM with little effort, score over 10k on 3dMark11 so factor that OC into your decision and the cost of both options.

    What VLAN settings to use in VirtualBox

    Looking at setting up VirtualBox and what I want to do is give the virtual OS a completely different IP address than the host/router, is there anyway to do this? I tried free proxy's but they suck as they can't deal with certain scripts and java etc correctly.
