  1. I currently need a GPU upgrade as my current one is an R7 250 2GB and is lacking performance, I recently upgraded my CPU to an i5 2400, And i'd like suggestions for a good upgrade and combo for my CPU, I have no power supply limits and no case limits as I have lots of headroom on those fronts. My budget is up to about £90 or $110, I have mainly been looking over the used market and on sites like Cex or eBay but anything new within that price range I would go for too.
  2. Currently, you can run many games on 8gb of RAM today, but for example on AAA games at max, you might run into problems with 8 gigs, so technically, games like tomb raider, GTA V, and other AAAs will require over 8gb today. Some software applications however like 3D animation and rendering will definately need more RAM
  3. Do you have any hard drives in your system?, I had the same problem but re - mounting my hard drives seemed to solve it
  4. I currently have an i3 2120 and an R7 250 in whch the GPU is showing it's age and I am thinking of buying an R9 270x but will it bottleneck my i3?
  5. I have ran into some problems with my PC as the ram seems to max out to 7.84gb and it is very slow. It happened when I was just finishing off a composition and my PC went into sleep mode. I woke it up with a mouseclick and logged in. The screen was black with just the start menu icon in the corner. As the start menuwas invisible I turned it off via the power button and booted through start Windows normally. It booted up and the screen was black. I waited a hit and got a desktop but 5 minutes later it became very slow. I looked at the task manager and saw the ram was maxed. I booted into safe mode and did a malwarebytes scan. It found 20 threats and still did not solve the problem. All I have is my phone and my terrible laptop to seek refuge. O even 're inserted the ram which did not work. I have 8gb of corsair valueselect 1333 in 1 stick and I use Windows 7 professional. I tried msconfig max ram fix which did not work. Pls help
  6. I am thinking of currently upgrading my GPU to something more beefier. Right now I have an AMD R7 250 from XFX which is serving me well, but I have ran into a few games that aren't running up to scratch. I have been circling round the R9 270 which sells for quite cheap and is way better than my current card, but just in case I am buying into something I am not wanting, I would just like reassurance or suggestions. My price point is about £80 or $110 and my CPU is an i3 2120. Don't worry about power requirements or space issues as I have a 750 watt PSU and a large case. I have 2 monitors, one I am planning to game at 1080p and I have a monitor that supports freesync and one that is 900p which has no freesync support.
  7. I recently cloned my disk to put into a new laptop which is the easynote tx86 and the resolution does not go higher than 1024x768 when the actual resolution is 1366x768. I tried downloading the Intel drivers and the Nvidia 300m and 400m drivers and the Nvidia drivers said there was no compatible hardware. Pls help
  8. If you are on a budget then go with something from Turtle Beach, like maybe the 50p or recon 150, but if you have money to burn, then I suggest the Void pro from Corsair
  9. It has actually survived since 2009 from my brother's old PC and all I have done is just replace the fan for an LED one
  10. The S6 Edge Pllus says it's water resistant, does this mean, for example it can survive in a warm shower or heavy rain? When I looked this up all I could find was general water tests. pls help

  12. AI recently started to overclock my gpu by about 50 MHz from 925MHz and found that my performance actually got worse by 50FPS. My motherboard is a Lenovo bet 4.2 motherboard and my gpu is an XFX R7 250A 2N. The temperature never went above 47°C.
  13. I have been with my Mordaunt-Short Avant 906 speakers for 2 years now, but they are starting to disintegrate, as the cones have bumps and holes in them (you might not be able to see it in the photo) and one of them went through a make-shift tweeter replacement that came from a krk rokit 5. I am probably going to sell them as used. Any new suggestions for a pair of floor standers or bookshelf speakers? (I built myself a pair of speaker stands just in case I come to a bookshelf speaker). My room is quite small with a very tall ceiling of 10ft and I compose electronic house music in FL Studio. I am also getting a 40W 2.1 amp very soon and have also built a sub woofer that I want to use.
  14. You could get an AOC U2879Vf for £300 at currys or an LG 29UM68 for £260. Ultra wide or dual monitors is really just a personal preference and setup size, you could also look at different videos comparing monitors.
  15. I'm not really an expert at water cooling, but I think you should first of all try to get rid of that bubble and refill the system if you have time
