  1. Hello all! Forgive me if this questions has been asked before, but I was wondering if it is possible to run a dual-boot system using Windows 8.1 & it's product key, and Windows 10 (the forced upgrade). I work behind a VPN and my employer just upgraded to Windows 10, yet it is ten kinds of wonky and is full of flaws at the moment, so they are recommending that we go back to previous versions of Windows until they get this sorted out. I really don't want to have to do a clean install of 8.1, but would rather do a dual-boot system. Thus...the reason why i'm here and posing this question. Thanks to all in advance!
  2. Didn't think to ask...is there a particular manufacturer you wish to go with? Or just whatever the user puts on their Amazon Wishlist as far as the GPU goes? Reason I ask is that if I were to win, I wouldn't want to put you out too much cash. Kind of believe in keeping it as cheap as possible seeing as that it's your money.
  3. That was one of the very first things I thought about was the airflow (or lack thereof) with the 360 case as it is stock. I've been going back & forth on how I want to set it once everything is done...that way I have a better idea of where to modify the case for max airflow (without having to fabricate pieces to make the existing case big enough to house everything. I realized painfully that the video card I had selected originally just would not fit. So I found a slightly better Sapphire R9 285 that's close to the same size as the Nano. I'll get around to updating that list with the video card and a smaller cooler.
  4. I just recently discovered a old Xbox 360 console (Halo 3 edition) that is dead in the water (and has been for some time judging by the rattling the insides make when you pick it up) and had the bright idea to mod it into a working gaming PC. I have no idea of when i'll actually get this project off the ground and running in the right direction, but I went ahead and put together a parts list of items that i'd like to see in it (assuming it will work). If anyone has any ideas of better gear or just better ideas in general (tips and what not), please feel free to chime in. This will be the first build I do where I don't use a "traditional" case. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/8gQvLk
  5. Me and my wife have decided to have our own private connection wired directly to our room from our ISP. Thankfully, between our room/office & the kitchen where that god-forsaken microwave is, there is about four feet of concrete flooring covering a few hundred square feet if not more. But...just in case, we went out and purchased a Asus RT-N53 N600 Dual Band router which we'll wire everything to. Assuming all of that works, and we hope it does, next step will be purchasing a switch so none of our devices have to connect wirelessly aside from phones and tablets.
  6. Best part of my rig is my motherboard (MSI A88X-G45 Gaming) and even then it was chosen based on budget. My processor is an AMD A8-7650K (also based on budget). I did have a MSI R7 370 2GD5T OC as my video card, but it died last week. It powers on, but the DVI, Display, and HDMI ports do not work on it anymore. So now i'm having to game and do everything else with the integrated graphics and it hurts....it hurts a lot. Full specs are as follows CPU: AMD A8-7650K MoBo: MSI A88X-G45 Gaming PSU: Corsair CX750 RAM: Adata 8GB DDR3 HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB GPU: MSI R7 370 2GD5T OC (R.I.P.) Case: BitFenix Outlaw Fans: (3)120mm Thermaltake (salvaged from previous computer and sound like a jet engine when PC is on) Thanks for the giveaway and good luck everyone!
  7. I just recently (within the past few hours), started receiving a Windows BSOD error "Bad_Pool_Header". Looked it up through Windows and it seems to be a developer problem...yet I do absolutely zero programming on this machine as I do not know how to program anything. It's happened several times tonight, mostly while I have Steam up & running and playing games such as H1Z1 and the Dead Island series. I have received BSOD errors in the past since the forced upgrade to Win10 (had Win8.1 previously). I've done virus scans, malware scans in both regular and safe mode and have come up with absolute jack. I do remember seeing something that recommended unplugging all hardware connected to the pc other than the mouse and keyboard to see if the error(s) are cause by hardware, but you guessed it...I have nothing extra plugged in other than my ethernet cable. I do have a 120gb SSD coming in the mail tomorrow and plan to use it as a boot drive for windows and maybe a select few games on there that I play frequently. Would swapping windows over to the ssd help out in my case?
  8. Thankfully, I do have a spare microwave from a old apartment me and my wife used to live in years ago, so I'll switch those out and see if the results are the same.
  9. But....but...I like reliving my college days of reheating Ramen in the microwave! But in all seriousness, thanks for the idea guys! Will get on it asap!
  10. Hello everyone! I just recently discovered that use of the microwave inside the kitchen interferes GREATLY with my Cisco router located in the living room. While this isn't an issue as we don't have many things that connect to the router wirelessly, use of the microwave even effects the quality of connections via hard-wiring in...almost to the point where if service were to be disconnected, everyone in my house wouldn't notice because things slow down that much. I'm thinking maybe it has something to do with the frequency at which the router is broadcasting. Assuming that is it, wouldn't changing the channel solve the problem, or am I up the river at this point and need to start looking at new networking solutions?
