    I don't know, I guess I'm starting to really have a thing for movies and what not, and the entertainment scene in general. Other than that as you might guess I have a love for technology and the things that relate to it in general.

    Potentially a faulty GPU

    Potentially a faulty GPU

    So my friend started having this happen to him in games (moreso in 3D games) and occasionally blue/purple flickering. It appears to be coming off of other players/chickens (don't know if that means anything). He's also had missing letters and just general flickering whilst browsing Windows. Originally I thought it would be linked to software because it wouldn't artfiact in the bios but after the problem recurring in my PC as well I dunno. I put it in my PC to see if it does it there and it did so the problem is definitely linked to the GPU, I'm quite confident we'll probably have to use the warranty (but I really would prefer not to have to), however if anyone could have any advice/input on this it'd be much appreciated. Notes: - GPU is a Gigabyte 290 Windforce - No overclocks . - This only started happening a little bit after installing a new OS on the PC. - GPU had been running fine for a year and a bit before this started happening. - Temps are good. - Degree of artifacting appears to be dependent on load. Thanks, soaringchicken

    Activision-Blizzard buys MLG (Major League Gaming)

    Didn't this already happen ages ago?

    PC upgrade

    it's got 4.5 stars so I can't see why not.

    PC upgrade

    Obviously the EVGA G2 would be best case scenario, as a cheaper alternative I'd probably go for this: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperNOVA-Modular-Warranty-110-B1-0750-VR/dp/B00K85X23O/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1451629589&sr=1-4&keywords=750+watt+power+supply

    PC upgrade

    I've had good experiences with Coolermaster PSU's, so I can safely recommend their GM series, there is a 650 and a 750 watt series but I'd go for the 750 just because it's the price difference is often marginal, the higher end series, Vanguard is also pretty good (the one that I have): it's gold rated and semi modular. For an alternate I know that the EVGA G2 series is very good as well (probably better than the Coolermasters)

    PC upgrade

    I wouldn't recommend it, but if you did decide to, I'd maybe underclock the GPU maybe a little just to be safe.

    650w PSU enough to overclock an FX-8320?

    I think you should be fine, 650w will be plenty.

    PC upgrade

    Ohh I sort of glossed over the PSU part, you'd probably want 650+ watts for a 980ti.

    Best Mouse For CSGO And Other FPS Games!

    idk really I think it comes down to personal preference, lots of people like different things: I mean some people play with low sensitivity, some play with high, some like weighted mice, etc. My best recommendation is to maybe just go into a store and try all the different mice, see which one fits best.

    PC upgrade

    Yeah you'll be quite fine for now.

    PSU Confusion

    Personally I'd be going with an Intel CPU as the AMD upgrade path is pretty crap, especially since that chipset is pretty much dead. As for the PSU, I'm confident It'd work, but I'd really look to upgrade it anyway, as the VS series is pretty low end and 550watts is bare minimum imo.
