    Looking at replacing PSU

    Yeah I'm going to order the white 750. Thanks again for the advice.

    Looking at replacing PSU

    The 550w is £77 with Prime, The 750 is £95 with prime. The 650 costs more than the 750(go figure). Looking at the above comments the 550w will be fine with current spec. If I upgrade in the future would the 550w still cut it or would it be wise for the extra £18 get the 750? orrrr the 750 in white is £115 and looks really nice with the white cables.

    Looking at replacing PSU

    £150 or so. Just been googling that PSU and a lot of sites are saying It's discontinued
  5. I've had my PSU for a long time now, I want to say close to 10 years?? It's still running but It's getting loud and I think It's time to replace. I'm currently using the Corsair HX850. Specs: 6600k cooled by a X62 16gb Ram 980ti Hybrid Got 2 SSDs and one HDD Looking at getting a PSU that will be very quite under load. I've heard that psus can turn off the fan while at idle or low usage which would be a nice option. I've had my corsair for many years and it's done very well for me but I'm open to over manufactures.

    That looks very nice! Not sure on how he feels about AMD. Is there a Intel option if possible
  8. Got a mate who is looking at buying his first gaming pc. His budget is £1800 max. Preferably looking at around £1500. Like i said above it's his first gaming pc so he would need everything. So in the price the peripherals etc will need to factored in. He is looking to game at 1440p and will be playing the latest titles that come out. Let's see what you wonderful people can come up with!
  9. Thanks i'll give it a try EDIT - Still doing it on the beta
  10. I'm playing fortnite on PC and using the windows 10 xbox app to talk with friends who play on the Xbox. Using discord etc my mic is fine but when I use the xbox app party function it sounds like I have a fan next to the mic. It must be very annoying to the people in party with me. I can't work out what's causing it. I have a blue yeti whiteout and as mentioned above it works fine on discord and skype. Has anybody came across this problem before?

    Need help with home network

    Small update, I've left the sonos off the wired network and it seems to be stable. No connection drops or disconnections on xbox. Any idea why the Sonos would be doing that? Maybe the network can't handle the data being transferred?

    Need help with home network

    Yeah thats a good point about trying the switch first. Was just about to click the button to change to modern mode! I'll keep you updated and thanks for the help so far. UPDATE Changing settings on the switch did... nothing. Running the Hub 3 in modern mode did nothing. I'm going to try without the R7000 and see if its that. UPDATE 2: Still doing it without the R7000.. Maybe my connection is just f*cked?? Update 3: Connecting directly to the Hub 3 to my PC and it seems stable. Nothing else is on the wired network just the Sonos on wireless. I'm really lost here at what could be the fault.

    Need help with home network

    I'll take a look at the cables, They were brand new and been working fine for the past few days. I can turn off all the settings on the switch to make it a non manage switch? I can also put the Virgin media hub 3 in modern mode which I may try next. Makes me wonder if the hub 3 can't handle everything on the network and keeps locking up or something. You know what routers/moderns are like from ISPs!
  14. I'm having connection problems with my home network. Here is my current setup: Virgin Media Hub 3 provides the internet, That is connected to a Netgear R7000. I have a TP-Link SG108E switch connected to that. I have my TV, Virgin media box connected to the Hub 3 using ethernet. The R7000 is in my gaming room. Connected to that is 2 play 1s and a play 5. I then have a Ethernet cable going to the switch which has my main PC, xbox one and second PC connected to. Everything has internet connection but the connection does't seem stable. The xbox one keeps disconnecting on Fifa 18. Kicks me off the EA servers and some times fully off Xbox Live. The Sonos systems seem to keep the connection as music keeps playing fine. My main PC has problems streaming videos on Twitch(buffering) and websites can take some time to load up. Everything was working fine yesterday without the switch, The xbox was connected wireless and the second PC wasn't on the network due to lack of ethernet ports. I'm going to restart everything to see if that fixes the problem If not I'm pretty lost. Here is a speed test from my Main PC EDIT - Just restarted everything and the problem is still happening. Websites say "resolving host" and then load up after about 10 seconds. This doesn't always happen though. Hope this makes sense to somebody out there and is able to help. If you need any more information and something explained better then please ask.

    Just upgraded PC

    Looks like clean install fixed it. 64 player ultra settings on 1440p haven't dropped under 100fps yet!
