  1. It's just wording, HDMI is more standard on TV's than Monitors. No need to worry, it will be treated the same.
  2. Wow, that looks really nice! I haven't heard of ZTE in a while, but from the way it looks and they way they are presenting / pushing it, I think / hope this will become a well known device.
  3. In honor of the Olympics in Rio this year, I decided that I would try to make a cool wallpaper to commemorate that. This is my first attempt after learning graphic design somewhat, so tell me what you guys think. (This is VERY close to 1440p Compatible, give it a try)
  4. I would format it maybe, but it will be overwritten once you copy with EaseUS Todo to it. Yeah, the free version will do you just fine. Glad I could help
  5. You'll need software that will migrate all of the partitions and stuff You can find great guides via google/youtube search, here is my (Simplified) experience: Got new drive, hook it up, check it out in disk management Got EaseUS Todo Backup, made sure drive got recognized Copied all partitions of my C drive to the new drive, took not too long Try to boot off new SSD If successful, reformat the old drive fro future use (optional) done
  6. Well, CX/CXM PSU's are known not to be the best whenever they are in high output/usage. Try downing the details to try and bring power down.
  7. I like this episode idea! Try posting in one of their videos "Do eye strain as fast as possible" or something, that might get better attention.
  8. Not that much, just be careful. Make sure you do it slowly and with adequate pressure, and you should be fine
  9. hmm that looks odd... Try taking out the MoBo, making sure all 4 corners of the IO Shield are installed, and reinstall the MoBo, making sure to tilt the ports in the shield before angling it down on to of your standoffs.

  11. It has more cores, so you can do more stuff at the same time. Now with your use case, I don't think you have to use all $1500 towards your build, because you are getting a little more performance for way more money (for the things you do) I am coming up with a better list for a lower price right now...
  12. OK, this sounds good. I have to go to bed because it is late, but I will help you tomorrow. Can't wait to help you
  13. I have built my new computer, and it rocks! However, my current keyboard and mouse suck. (They came with a refurbished $150 prebuilt. Yikes.) I am not too serious about my peripherals, and I have a smallish budget I kind of want to survey my options here and I am wondering these 2 things: 1. Is the CM Storm Devastator KB+M bundle a good option as far as bundles go? Is there a better option for the price or just in general? 2. What would be a good KB and Mouse that would be under $100? Requirements: No frills, or at least kept to a minimum Is fairly durable, and comes from a reputable brand Full sized keyboard, including full sized keys (no slim chicklet laptop-eske crap) Optional, but I would love some backlighting Mechanical would be nice, but I don't think I could fit in one that would last and has no frills and cheapness. So, lets just stick to membrane/enhanced membrane switches. Thanks again forum, you are the opposite of the YouTube Comments section (Except for the flame wars at times lol)
  14. 1. Welcome to the forums! 2. Use pcpartpicker.com, it is a great resource. Always check with us though 3. With a budget as large as $1500, your are going to have nothing but a AAA capable machine. Tell us more about what games, resolution, and other tasks
  15. Zen or Skylake. Haswell is ok, but Skylake only costs a teeny tiny amount more for a bigger performance gain. For example, I was going to get a Haswell build, but I discovered the comparable RAM, MOBO, and CPU only cost $3 more. EDIT: Pricing varies, so use Haswell if you have to, AMD's current DDR3 CPU's aren't that viable.
  16. No... Who told you that? And BTW Intel has greater performance to price even though there are less cores so yeah
  17. Most often, they will be included with the case in a hardware container or bag.
  18. Hello, I just made my new computer and I am on it right now! (living the dream man) I am having a problem with it Whenever i move it too much, it turns off I know there can be many things wrong, so can you guys throw a bunch of ideas at me? Thx
  19. Show them this comment. It does NOTHING to affect your experience, they are just routing traffic through a "road" you aren't even using. Any changes in speed are extremely negligible.
  20. See what processes are slowing it down, that will give us more insight. It might be malware, but that is at question.
  21. Thanks! I'll get one that ships from the US, Amazingly Cheap
  22. For my new computer, I might need another USB hub to plug in more devices. Is it cheaper to buy in person or online? What features and specs should I look out for? Thanks again
  23. Welcome to the Forums! When pricing a build, use PCPartPicker.com to have each price refreshed often and a (limited) compatibility checker.
