  1. PCIE card in pci slot

    Yeah, PCI bandwidth isnt great. Per wikipedia: Speed 133 MB/s (32-bit at 33 MHz – the standard configuration) 266 MB/s (32-bit at 66 MHz or 64-bit at 33 MHz) 533 MB/s (64-bit at 66 MHz)
  2. CMD cannot find command

    If the environment variables aren't set, you need to navigate to the directory where the file you want to run is present and then run the thing you want. You will also need to type the file name with the extension (blah.exe for example). If you want to add to the environment variables the link below will probably cover what you need to do and you should be able to then run it from wherever you want. https://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/fix-not-recognized-as-an-internal-or-external-command/
  3. Why does it seem slow still

    A blank USB flash drive with at least 8GB of space or blank DVD (and DVD burner) if you want to create media. We recommend using a blank USB or blank DVD, because any content on it will be deleted.
  4. Why does it seem slow still

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 - 'Create Windows 10 installation media' Download tool now bit on that page You could just download 10 on to a USB drive and install it from there. It will be much quicker than installing from a DVD, and even more so if you have an SSD.
  5. Gigabyte Geforce GTX GPU

    You might be able to get one on ebay/fb/whatever is local, if you're lucky for £150.00 at the minute. Otherwise, these are about the best price on the 1050ti at the minute from the usual shops. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=380&sort=price&page=1
  6. 250% but not to any tabs, just the rest of the search page as some of it goes off screen at that level. To be honest, I've never bothered scrolling in before, so don't actually know if it has changed.
  7. hehe.... both monitors are horrendous squares, so 1280*1024
  8. Ahh... The Daily Fail. Linus is now internet famous. Kinda disappointed the appears to have been buried on the actual site.
  9. Yes they did... 2 of those 4 had truly epic selling series back in the day. Maxis had the SimCity series & The Sims, both of which were massive. Westwood had Command & Conquer, again, massive back in the day. The other two had some quite big series like Deadspace & Skate too.

  11. My take on it would be they knowingly released 'new' processors with the same problem, after Intel had been told of the problem and had time to investigate it, and without disclosing to those buying it that they may have a performance hit from this being fixed. I know why they didn't tell anyone at the time, but that is still a somewhat shitty thing to do. I can understand why those people who bought a new processor after Intel were advised and had time to investigate could be pissed off by that. (Tinfoil hat time) I can imagine some people wondering if at least a small part of why coffeelake ended up being brought forward by a few months was to get it released before this became public knowledge.
  12. My take on Intel refuse to patch the bug.

    It depends entirely on how MS implement it. Linux devs I think have accepted the change to the Kernel so that it doesn't hinder AMDs CPUs. Basically it's up to the OS provider.
  13. GPU for OptiPlex 790 SFF

    Assuming it has the Q65 Express chipset, then in theory https://ark.intel.com/products/52811/Intel-BD82Q65-PCH any of those are compatible, assuming dell haven't locked any of them out for whatever reason.
  14. Laptop Help

    Definitely sounds like a dead battery. At least you know the charger is fine if it's powering on while it's plugged in. Also, people lie about stuff so unless you know it's a new battery, assume they are lying.
