  1. 1) what cpu you want to buy 2) features you want, m.2 slot, usb 3.1, sli and/or crossfire ready, built in wifi, amount of pci and rams slots, amount of usb 3.0 headers(one for your case, and one in case you get an external card reader, fan controller, etc), 3) budget , how much you willing to pay , more features usually mean more cash 4) if your going to overclock i suggest gettiing a board with an easy bios, like gigabyte asus , msi, etc 5) size of the board for your build, mini-itx, micro atx, full atx, etc because that will dictate the case size every motherboard has its pluses and minuses, the one good thing about sticking with the likes of gigabyte, asus and msi is that a google search could easily trouble shoot any problem you might encounter, thats the main reason i went with an asus, good info on their site, lots of people using their boards and an easy bios to work with when i overclock my system, and there are alot of videos with my board to follow.
  2. is it the gps or is it google maps that is not working correctly? do you have a task killer? have you gone into developer mode to enable close app on exit? thats typical of most samsung phones unfortunately and the note 4 was known to have the best battery life of their phones, pending on the carrier signal strength will kill phone batteries a lot , being in hawaii it sucks as far as reception goes cause the tree huggers wont allow antennas here. try another app, lots of other camera apps in the play store if you are comfortable with messing with your phone, you could always root and debloat your phone , i did this with my sons phone and it really improved his battery life and i also installed a custom rom later which made it a lot better. just make sure you backup the stock rom in case you need to return the phone. http://forum.xda-developers.com/ - search for the note 4 and choose the carrier you are on i personally don't like the iphones because i feel if you spend that much money on a phone you should be able to do what you want with it , including jailbreaking or being able to customize the rom, half the stock apps i dont even need and i would miss the pull down menu on the android, which i have caught myself trying to swipe down on my iphone 4s which i use for a music player
  3. your build looks fine with exception of the power supply, the cx series are like the lowest tier of psu's you can buy, but that being said, it should be more than enough for your build. i did have something like that situation before on one of my other builds and never found out why, i had just inistalled a new gpu(gts 450) and after i plugged it in it was like a surge went through my pc, it turned out to be my psu, it was a diablotek el cheapo 450, after i changed to a evga 500b, i never had any problems. i don't know if its the same problem. if you do decide to plug in the fan i would recommend using a different fan header, other than that 500w should be more than enough for what you are running. sorry wish i could help out more but an suggestions other than trying out a new power supply might screw up your pc more.
  4. lol, it kinda seemed that way looking at the prices but for some reason i couldn't click on the links
  5. since when does any game make any sense? but in this game geralt is independent, and well as the rest of the witchers and they all have a common enemy, so that would negate any hostilities towards each other and focus on the fighting the wild hunt which threatens everyone. after that then they can go back to killing each other, funny how art imitates life. maybe there was a hidden message in there somewhere about american policy, lol
  6. it would be a bit easier if it was in pcpartpicker
  7. if you decide to get a smaller card and not modify your case, you can check this site on specs, length etc after measuring the space in your case http://graphics-cards.specout.com/ i have this card, i think its $189 after you add to the cart, but if you want to buy in the store you are going to, use the site above to see if it fits in your case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125802
  8. $212 is a lot for even the 4gb version of the gtx 960, this r9 380 is better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202166 or if you prefer the 960 then this is a good option, i have this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125802 and i would upgrade to a more efficient psu like a evga g2

  10. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gHT3f7 used z97-a since z87 was not available according to part picker your system is drawing approx 440W without cooling, oc, etc i'd say safe bet would be 600 and above for future upgrades evga g2/p2 psu's are a safe bet.
  11. http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Xbox-Wireless-Adapter-Windows-one/dp/B00ZB7W4QU there shouldn't be any problem, i ended buying this because i prefer the xbone controller over the 360 , which i also have the wireless connector for. everything is configured through direct input which is what most games use and should be compatible. note: i have used the adapter with the elite and regular xbone controller and they work great.
  12. it should be enough, maybe close to 350w with the hdd etc,depends on the extras in your case , if you are overclocking, etc, i personally would up it to a 600 but a 500 should be enough as long as it is a quality psu, and not some off brand, the minimum required is a 500w, the card itself draws about 150 put your components into pcpartpicker.com and it will show you an approx wattage in the upper right side. add 40% more and thats what some recommend http://pcpartpicker.com/
  13. i have a 300/20 connection and just used the smc they gave me with a nighthawk r7000 i picked up from costco, at times i can have 13 devices connected and i have never had any problems streaming 4k,file sharing, the only problems i had was the network drive always disconnecting, it was just a usb 3.0 external so it was kinda expected, but my printer works flawlessly connected list of cable modems from time warner cable with speeds http://www.timewarnercable.com/content/dam/residential/pdfs/support/internet/twc-compatible-modems.pdf
  14. it did't brick mine, i just had to install the drivers again, luckily i found the disk since it was an off brand. try and see if installing the drivers fixes it

  17. check amazon warehouse most of the products there are either customer return cause it wasn't what they wanted or the boxes were damaged in shipping and they cant sell as new. they have a great return policy if you are a prime member. so basically you can test it and return it if you dont like it. http://smile.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_nr_p_36_0?rnid=386442011&rh=n%3A10158976011%2Cn%3A172282%2Cn%3A%21493964%2Cn%3A541966%2Cn%3A193870011%2Cn%3A284822%2Cp_36%3A7500-99999999&sort=price-asc-rank&qid=1458610995&bbn=10158976011&low-price=90&high-price=&x=3&y=2 or check this site for daily deals http://slickdeals.net/newsearch.php?src=SearchBarV1&q=video+card&pp=20&sort=relevance&previousdays=-1&forumid%5B%5D=9&forumid%5B%5D=30&forumid%5B%5D=25&hideexpired=1
  18. i have an msi gt72, which is an awesome machine the bad things about msi in general are 1) questionable battery life, even for a gaming laptop it is still well below most laptops in this price range 2) tech support can be horrendous 3) prices fluctuate alot and what is a good deal today, next week it will drop $200+ then go back up again the following week that being said i still love my msi but i just wish they would at least address the first 2 problems
  19. there isnt much use for that now since most cpu's do that automatically, speeds adjust according to need, back in the old day when i was running a 486/33 which is like comparing a slug to a racehorse, it was needed for certain software, ASUS has software which lets you adjust speeds to overclock/underclock via software, as well as other motherboard and gpu manufacturers. these days overclocking is somewhat easier than before when there honestly was no reason to overclock other than to brag how much you pushed the cpu without it actually burning up
  20. all depends on how you define gaming a 750ti is fine for casual gaming at mid range @1080 for some games, a 950 is better than both r7, prices should be coming down on alot of the cards so you could probably get a 960 or r9 380 for the price a 950 when it goes on sale. your psu can handle just about any gpu, so if you are into heavy gaming i would recommend looking at cards with higher vram at least 4gb. im not sure what is available in your country but i wouldnt consider any of those cards with the exception of the 950 as an upgrade to you current card price wise
  21. this one is a monster and supposedly is $400, but on sale for prime members @$120 http://www.amazon.com/Intocircuit-Monster-32000mAh-Portable-Charger/dp/B011BGPUSI/ref=sr_1_1?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1460068379&sr=1-1&keywords=laptop+external+battery+pack
  22. those were the two that i looked at, there is an upgrade to the anker batter which is 26800 mah, which is a lot and should provide more than a few hours of life, i actually ended up going with this though, not the model i have since it is not discontinued http://smile.amazon.com/Charger-ALLPOWERS-Foldable-Portable-Notebooks/dp/B00G6CDTGS/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1460067790&sr=1-2&keywords=solar+laptop+charger i would like to say it worked but idk if in the long run it is actually killing my battery, i took it camping at it worked fine, but what i do now is use this to charge external packs then use the external at night, because i read that it is not advised to use the laptop while using the solar charger.
  23. its just like that in task manager, i would recommend using sites like crucial.com to see what you can upgrade to then decide on where to buy the upgrade from if not from there http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Dell/vostro-14-(5459)
  24. i was planning on buying this myself but there were mixed reviews, though most of the bad reviews were because they didnt have the right connections for the notebook they had which actually could be lack of research by the buyer http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008EG64PC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=FGCJ3PKJMQMU&coliid=IE3LAOJZ95VY7 though this seems to be a bette choice at a premium price, since it is an anker which has a great reputation for portable battery packs, just not sure if it has a plug for your particular laptop http://www.amazon.com/Anker-Universal-20000mAh-Multi-Voltage-External/dp/B00B45EOYS/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1460066859&sr=1-1&keywords=external+laptop+battery+pack+anker
