  1. I have a single gtx560ti graphics card in my system currently. I am looking to upgrade this PC as it is my travel PC and is hooked up to a 4k TV for streaming video as well as gameplay. This will help tremendously in getting 4K out of the computer i am currently using, for gaming and streaming.
  2. I would suggest waiting for Pascal to come out and getting a new card from there. Thats if you can take your current gaming experience
  3. Honestly, i have the mid2010 version of the laptop with an i7. I upgraded the RAM to 8gb a while ago. The reason your HDD and SSDH is failing is due to the heat that does not get dissipated fast enough from the computer. Apples are known to be bad with heat. As for upgrading to an SSD. Yes you will probably see SOME benefit from it, but probably not enough to warrant the spending of $X to replace the drive in an already older computer. If you are looking to edit 1080p video, i suggest getting a new laptop. Its time for an upgrade.
  4. They are both very good chips. I personally have the 6700K and think it is better due to its support of DDR4 RAM. Futureproof wise, it is going to get you further into the future than the 4790k. ALSO, the new skylake processors are much cooler, as they draw less power.
  5. Futureproof. I would say no. Only because the upgrade path has no DDR4 support and no future growth support Is it still worth while and will run will for a while? Oh yeah. Its still a great system platform. I wouldnt call it futureproof though.
  6. Yeah well i would be sure to make backups when you go to do crazy things on your phone. Sorry to hear about the messages but glad there was nothing important.
  7. Might be time to call Apple. There might be nothing they can do. Have you ever backed up your phone to your PC?
  8. I agree with this. Most of the time there could be some small improvements that could be shown when the new driver comes out, and some hidden ones. Especially with newer games that have come out. Just because your game isnt on the title doesnt mean its not worth the update. Roll back if your having issues.
  9. I doubt it will disappear. You should also check to be sure iMessage is turned on. I dont know if they were iMessages but the connection to the server could have been severed when you changed the date that far.
  10. I would get the 970, because i did.... twice... LOL. R9 390 is pretty good, and most would argue better than the 970.
  11. I assume you may get them in 36 years? LOL Ok seriously. Have you tried restarting the phone to see if the messages will sync back up?
  12. I have this board as well and i do not believe the board has LED strips. I have the HUE+ and would get it again. I highly suggest it, even though it is kind of expensive. Also runs off molex EWW! Oh well, no one needs to see the back of my case, just the sexy front
  13. Yes you could do that. That would be easiest.
  14. Try only plugging in the SSD and see if it is responding. Remove all other USB cables and drives.
  15. It shouldnt have. As long as you are sure you set it to the right drives. Have you checked the boot order to be sure that it is set for the SSD?
