    What to do with 128GB ssd

    Do you already have your OS on an SSD? Frequently used programs would be a good idea, makes them snappier

    What would your dream build be?

    I was thinking the same, if its your dream PC your wallet doesnt matter.
  3. dual moniters? are they required? also i5 is way overkill, pentium should do just fine.

    r9 280 3gb or gtx 960 4gb

    280X is not superior in every way to 960. performance yes but 280x has over double the TDP of the 960, 280x is also 2 years older and has less frequent drivers.

    [Windows 8 only]Modern Combat 5 FREE for PC and mobile

    I paid for this game on my phone a while back and now its free I think I deserve my money back. Now I can't play all the time because of the stupid energy system so I think I deserve a full refund. Never been a fan of Gameloft and their pay2win games. Rant over.

    New cooling upgrade

    the fans use 4 pin connectors and I beleive the fan controller uses 3 pin, is there anything I can do about that?

    New cooling upgrade

    Hello LTT, I am looking to have a large upgrade to the cooling of my PC in the aims of making it significantly quieter and I want your opinions. I currently have 2 corsair af120 quiet edition and a stop corsair carbine fan and stock amd CPU cooler. I am thinking of getting 3 Noctua NF P12 fans, an NZXT Grid+ and a Hyper 212 Evo, what do you think?

    Budget Gaming PC

    I would say no, anything under 750ti really is too shitty for gaming if you are aiming for 60FPS 1080p

    New Headset

    I would recommend a decent pair of headphones and like a modmic instead of headsets

    RAM running slow

    ahh ok, thanks. If it is 1866 Mhz I will not complain.

    RAM running slow

    Hello LTT, I will excuse you for my ignorance before hand. I just got speccy and my ram is running at 937.5MHz even though the memory is 1333MHz or 1600MHz cant quite remember and I thought was quite low, is it just because my PC is not under load?

    Upgrading Old HP?

    218watt PSU? you need a new PSU. There are GPUs that use that much alone. Do you have anymore money for the GPU? even the 610 will not be a massive improvement, 750ti is a decent value GPU, check it out. I am sure there will also be another GPU on team red for the price.
