    Need Help, adding 2 monitors to 3 Monitor setup problems

    FYI . I tried to rather old cards an nvidia gt 520 and a amd hd 3450 and I was able to run a display off both cards one dvi (nvidia) and the other HDMI. SO I am fairly certain this will work . I am going to try tomorrow with a 750ti and my r9 380

    Need Help, adding 2 monitors to 3 Monitor setup problems

    ok l;et me rephrase thequestion . If I have two graphics cards 1050's lets say not in SLI. Can I run 8 monitors(which is 2x max supported for a single card 4 on each card)??

    Need Help, adding 2 monitors to 3 Monitor setup problems

    ok if thats so for my sanity sake, lets say I buy another 1070 or a 1050(just for extra monitor support) would that work. ?
  4. Hey guys, I know this sounds ridiculous, but they are 2 small monitors for my flight sim here is my current setup so for now I am adding 2 7" lcd displays like these (https://www.amazon.com/Tontec-Raspberry-Display-AT070TN90-Controller/dp/B00G60FJNG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478481942&sr=8-1&keywords=7"+lcd+display ) and really going to be adding a thrid shortly after likely a 10" . Problem is the my GPU atm does not allow me to have that many monitors. I have been planning on buying a 1070 here in a month or so. My question is if I get a 1070 can I leave my 380 ( I will move it down to the secondary PCI slot) and use the 1070 for my main monitors and have the 3 smaller ones plugged in and utilize the Max supported monitors for each card?? Thanks any advice would be awesome Heres kind of what I am thinking

    Drive going bad??

    Hey today I noticed really bad loading times and sometimes windows not responding when say going thru files. I checked disk usage and it was at 100% unless i closed absolutely everything then it goes to 0(obviosuly). CrystalDisk shows that the drive in a GOOD status, although it does seem to have some errors. Am I correct on thinking that this drive is mostly going bad or about to fail completely?
  8. So I blew one of my old logitech speakers, I had them for a long time. So time to buy new speakers . I really like these https://www.amazon.com/Behringer-MS16-Compact-Stereo-Speaker/dp/B00181T20O?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00181T20O&linkCode=as2&linkId=LY2KUUPFNCX55VU3&redirect=true&ref_=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl&tag=teksynd-20 but I also like having a good amount of bass. So I would want a sub woofer also. 2 part question, 1) what would be a good sub? 2) how would they connect to the speakers?I dont see a spot to plug a sub into the speakers, would I use the sub output from my mobo? Thanks for any advice, If you have any other suggestions for maybe a decent set of powered monitors w a sub, Im open to suggestions.

    looking for phone recommendations

    I just bought a Honor 5x off newegg for $199 and has been awesome. I came from a lg risio so I hoped/expected it to be a world difference and it was. My only issue is that the wifi doesnt pick up the 5ghz bandwidth. Other than that it runs awesomely.

    Any idea how I could get this in my case?

    what other option do you think you have? you could remove the low profile bracket entirely, but still run the change of it coming out of the pci slot. other than that you either make something or buy something. possibly if you ahve another card that has the regular bracket you can see if you can switch them I have done this with NIC's in the past but sometimes the screw holes dont line up .

    What controller would I need for this?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/162067786317?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true http://www.amazon.com/DJI-controller-transmitter-DJ6-California/dp/B00LDFB79O the amazon description says that the controller works with dji phantom 1 & 2 so I guess if you can find a dji phantom 2 controller should work

    Tired of Amazon Customer Service

    I order quite alot of stuff thru amazon, almost a weekly basis whether for work or myself, I know that things may happen. But I have grown extremely tired of amazon thinking refunding the shipping is compensation. I dont really care to any responses ppl have this is a rant, and I know it. I think what really ticked me off and as far as I have realized that the customer service agents I talked today seemed to be using google translate to speak English, the grammar was horrible. and then the typical auto response copy and pasted then when I asked to speak to the supervisors supervisor, they tell me that I can only get one by phone so I provide my cell number and I get a call which Suprise Surprise is just amazon customer service regualr rep that has no Idea whats going on and I have to explain my self yet again. when I finally do get a supervisor, he begins to tell me that the package is out for delivery, when I have already called the UPS facility and they told me its sitting in the warehouse not out for delivery. Straight argues with me before I prove to him that when a ups package is out for delivery it shows as just that on the tracking "Out for delivery" . He argues with me that he knows the shipping carriers and ups never says out for delivery. Then I showed him proof buy telling him to look at one of my previous orders that was shipped with UPS. and it showed out for delivery. and then hangs up on me IM A FUCKING PISSED at this point. its one thing to maybe leave me on hold but to disconnect the call... unfucking reasonable . . . at this point I am asking for the entire price of the order refunded, but still getting my cell phone and case . Im too pissed off to keep writing.
