    Lots of trouble with a card reader

    Hello everyone I am having lots of trouble with my sd card reader, because whenever I try to eject the card only it ejects the entire reader(se image below) Does anyone know what can be done to fix this problem so that will be able to only eject the inserted card, and not the entire reader. Thank you very much!

    Thank you very much for this information. I will remember this when considering it further. I'll wait with upgrading till next month.

    Upgrading editing pc - help needed

    Thank you very much for the help both of you! I think I will take a closer look at the ryzen processors and motherboards. I still have two quick questions though: This infinity fabric speed how or what should I do with it then to maximize performance, if you have a link to an article or something. I am pretty decent with the bios and such. And then, when I am going to do the upgrade, can I/should I install the drivers for the new motherboard and CPU before upgrading the parts or can I wait till afterwards? Thank you very much again!

    Upgrading editing pc - help needed

    The ryzen setup would also be way cheaper compared to the I9. 370 USD cheaper to be exact. The next gen ryzen will have 16 cores? Sounds awesome. So should I purchase some new faster ram or would my overclocked 2133 to 2666 ram be alright? If I go with the Ryzen, should I buy the 2700x or just the 2700 they are only 15 USD apart. Is there a place where I can find a road map for the AM4 socket/ryzen line?

    Upgrading editing pc - help needed

    Okay yeah, so I have a noctua NH-D15(which is awesome) my current cpu is only just above room temp even while overclocked. Is the 9900K not stable out of the box, or is it just if overclocking I should increase the voltage? Okay, I just double checked and it is an EVGA SuperNova 850 W Gold+ psu. The ryzen do look nice, but I have heard that they don't last for long? Also I think the ram is at 2666 MHz perhaps not quite sure, but can check up on it later.
  8. Hello everyone So I am currently rocking the following(see underneath), but I would love to upgrade presumably my cpu and ram - maybe gpu as well; however I am unsure of what I should upgrade to. I am primarily using my computer for work tasks, photo editing, some video editing and a tad of casual gaming. I would love some more cores, so that I am able to multitask better when editing as my current setup uses most of the cpu whilst working. I was looking at the I9-9900k and a new motherboard, but that is quite expensive, and I am not sure whether it is worth it? I hope that some of you might be able to help me! Current setup: CPU: I5-6600K - OC'ed to 4.4 GHz. RAM: Hyperx Fury 16 gb 2133 MHz - XMP overclocked. GPU: r9 390x 8gb. Motherboard: MSI gaming m5 z170 PSU: 750 w Thanks. Best regards
  9. Cool. The images are 24 MP. I will take a look at it. Thank you!
  10. Hi everyone I am currently planning on upgrading my computer this December or early next year. I am mostly using my computer for programming/coding and image editing. My current build is/was mainly focused on gaming, but since I have started to work a lot with editing and programming, that is my new main focus. Current build: CPU: i5-6600k GPU: MSI R9 390x 8gb 16 gb ddr 4 ~2100 mhz. Boot/application drive: Samsung 850 evo 500 gb ssd Storage/work files drive: WD Blue 1tb If you need other specs, just let me know. I just think these are the most important? Correct me if I am wrong I was thinking about upgrading my CPU/Motherboard and maybe upgrading to 32 gb 3200 mhz ram. What should I upgrade and to what? Thanks!

    Dell Ultrawide vs 27" 4K Monitor

    I am grabbing the Dell u3417w 34" 60 Hz IPS, at least I think so - I will wait ordering it till tomorrow. It currently costs 954.8 USD in Denmark. It is the only "good" ultrawide I have been able to find.

    Dell Ultrawide vs 27" 4K Monitor

    Thanks, that is it! I am sold. I also just did the calculations of PPI, and you actually get a little higher PPI on the ultrawide over the 27" 2k monitor. Thank you very much, I did not even think about it like that

    Dell Ultrawide vs 27" 4K Monitor

    Uhh, sounds interesting didn't even know the new generation of graphics cards were due for this year. I also think I prefer Ultrawides, but I have not tried neither of the options.
  14. Hi there, So I am looking for a new monitor for my work/gaming setup and I have been looking at the Dell u3417w 34" ips monitor 60 Hz - 5 ms, but I was wondering if I should buy a 4k 27" monitor instead. I am going to use it for programming, casual gaming, photo editing and other work related projects. I am currently running two old 24" monitors with awful color accuracy and at 60 Hz. I want to only have one monitor, but I am afraid that I might miss the dual screen setup.. My computer rig is as following: I5-6600k not overclocked MSI R9 390x 16 gb ram I am planning on upgrading the graphics card this christmas, hopefully to a gtx 1080 ti? Thanks!
  15. Hello again, thank you very much for these suggestions I will take a look
