  1. Currently rocking a Club3D R9 270 '14 series videocard which I planned to upgrade, I am planning on upgrading my whole system alltogether anyway since my AMD II 465 (quadcore) or whatever is quite outdated
  2. Yeah it's bad, especially if you've got those earbuds that make you not hear anything but the music. If you can't hear your fingers snapping you're definitely playing it too loud. Really, just teach yourself to have the volume lower, you'll get used to it and be less likely to have hearing problems later in life. The train I take is usually occupied with a guy that has his music so loud you'd think he played it through the speakers, yet he's wearing earbuds. The conductor once asked him to turn it down, he didnt even hear him.
  3. I dont want to share, I paid for the games, you make your own.

  5. Hey guys! I decided to try and mess with a cheapo USB Microscope from China. http://www.ebay.com/itm/50-500X-2MP-USB-8-LED-Light-Digital-Microscope-Endoscope-Camera-Magnifier-/161914847580 Few bucks and it arrived home, now here's the fun part. It has an adjustable LED ring around the webcam which I can turn brighter or dimmer with a little wheel on the cable, works fine. HOWEVER, this stupid camera just pumps up the gain or turns it lower once you mess with the light. This totally makes the thing obsolete. Now, this would produce a proper ima
  6. Last week I tried to get an old PC running again, for some reason it didn't boot so I thought perhaps I should unplug the old 120GB harddrive which still uses molex... a spark followed and it never booted again.
  7. Well my nephew said the following; "I'm going to buy the HTC Vive or PS4 VR headset because then I don't have to upgrade, the Oculus is far too heavy for my PC" :mellow: Well that's what you get for getting decent graphics and not wanting to puke you idiot.
  8. Any tips on videocards with analog ports on them? I found that the Nvidia fx 1700 is a good bet, anyone got experience? As a kid I hated old tech, but slowly I'm discovering the fun of analog stuff Experimented with an old portable TV hooked up to the modern TV, works a charm.
  9. And what does that look like, I currently have dual displays running off of that R9 270, adding a videocard with let's say S-video would just be another desktop but then projected on the thing I plug it in or does it not merge with the other 2 screens?
  10. Hi guys. I've got a Radeon R9 270 in my PC. I want a videocard with old outputs like VGA, S-VIDEO, perhaps composite and or coaxial or perhaps RCA (not sure if thats possible but you get the point) Can I just buy a card which is PCI Express too and plug that in next to the new videocard for everything else? Reason being is that I want to be able to hook up pheripherals like old TV's and what not. Thanks in advance!
  11. Not sure, the other camera is similar but the settings are the same, same codec, same bitrate, same resolution... restarting the camera seems to have helped though, will report back if it didn't fix it.
  12. It's Synology, my first encounter with a NAS. It has a very understandable OS type interface, it does show the RAM and CPU usage, but that doesn't go to 100% all the time either I don't think. EDIT: Looking at those percentages for a minute: CPU at around 22% usage, so I wouldn't think it's bottlenecking. RAM at 24% LAN at 780KB/s down and 74KB/s up, judging by that, those files aren't huge either.
  13. Hi guys. I have the Synology 212Sj and I wonder if it even is capable of recording 2 1080P IPcamera streams without problems. 1 camera records fine, the other plays smoothly via liveview (Hikvision) but the recorded file pauses for 2 seconds, then catches up in half a second and a second later does the same again. Would that be because of the NAS or am I doing something wrong? Synology 212SJ Hikvision 1080P streams X2 2 1TB hard disks at 7200rpm Powerline via 2 powerline adapter pairs, the liveview is smooth so I don't expect that to be the problem.
