    I just rebuilt my PC (whilst adding a second SSD) in a new case and new WC loop. I went for a total wipe across both my previous drives (m.2 and HDD). I think it always best to just start fresh, over time we install/remove stuff and they all leave crap behind registry entries, folders etc

    So decluttering is an another plus to fresh install. awesome

    No problem, I would recommend a fresh install if you have the money to buy a key off of kinguin or something, but at the time I didn't so I just cloned it. And if you decide to clone it use macrium reflect, only program that works.

    I was just going to use Samsung's Data Migration software

    Depends, I cloned and I have had no issues, which would be the case 99 percent of the time. But there is a chance something could go wrong but if you can't boot from the ssd after doing it, just use the hdd and do a fresh install :)

    Okay thanks for the information


  4. So ive got a new SSD from black friday sale. I was really wondering what i should do. Go with a fresh install or clone my existing hard drive. Does doing a fresh install give the ssd better performance or does it not matter at all.

    Thanks for the responses. Yeah I definitely see smartphones taking over that market. My current phone doesn't not have enough support in the matter. I might be better off upgrading phones to one with external SD support for music. 

    That or I might go with the Sony Walkman. 

    Wait for the New OnePlus or something like Nexus 6P

    while true, there is no longer support for the zune. aspects of what made the zune great been integrated into windows phone/xbox.


    like @Slyhawk said, sony walkman is probably the next best mp3 player in terms of music management.

    Do you guys know of any decent MP3 players besides Apple products? It seems like the only ones available in stores are the nano, shuffle, and ipod touch. Yet neither the nano nor shuffle have the storage space I need. And I really am not interested in all the extra apps and capabilities of the touch. I just want to listen to music! 


    Any suggestions? If nothing else, I'll try to find an ipod classic on eBay. 

    Microsoft Zune

  9. So my gpu is now dead, i had an R9 270x and this thing died on me today while i was playing blackops 3.

    I really want to wait for Pascal and Polaris, Is there anything that i could use as a backup that wont cost much. Or should i pull out my retired GT 210 out of the hardware box?

    If i plan to do that with the GT 210 will i be able to at least run games like minecraft? Or would you guys suggest getting rid of that and getting something newer. (If i do get something newer i want it to last a while in case this happens again)

    Okay guys. Thank you for your help so far. Now I have attached videos with what I’m talking about.


    1.       The first video (Proof 1 – Desktop) is the issue showing up when I’m moving my icon around. This is a ridiculous speed and not how I move things around but it’s used to demonstrate what’s going on when I move the icons around at normal speed. In normal speed, it happens at random.


    2.       The second video (Proof 2 - The Binding of Isaac Rebirth (with Afterbirth DLC)) is showing gameplay. This game is not a demanding game. It is a remake of a flash game from newgrounds. This is gameplay is to demonstrate what I’m talking about. It gets worse with graphically intensive games. The incident happens at ~14:20 and at ~29:10 – 29:30.

    Hi. Im instaling Ubuntu LTS to my server. I have made a bootable usb and i get the error: Unable to find a medium containing a live file system. Please help me!

    Something went wrong when you were creating a bootable USB.

    I use a software called powerISO to make bootable USB and it works great, check it out, they have a 30 day trial.

    OP isn't asking about gaming, they're asking about productivity. Two completely different topics

    Oh in that case somthing like a R7 240/x or R7 250/x for AMD, and like a GT730/740

    I'm looking to build my mom a new computer. Her computer is used every day for working from home. She is very active on the computer but does absolutely no gaming. She is mainly sending emails, pictures, making spreadsheets, browsing the web, moderately watches videos, and must be able to use two monitors. She can't stand a slow computer, because she tries to get as much work done as possible in a little time. The budget for how GPU is $120. It's ok if that price range is a little overkill for what she does, but no shame in telling me if it is too overkill. In conclusion, she just needs a GPU for great productivity but doesn't need to support games. What do you suggest. I will take the most frequent graphics cards suggested and create a poll from that.

    Its just that for high settings in Skyrim at 1366x768, that's the dGPU I used. The primary dGPU (MR HD4250, the low power one) however isn't as good at running Skyrim, mainly due to only having access to 320MB vRAM as opposed to 1GB.

    I give up trying to help

    Mobility Radeon HD5650/5770 (aka 100MHz OC)+Phenom II/first gen Core i*?

    I ran on a dual core Athlon II X2 clocked at 3.0 and the integrated HD4200, and if i could do that with something of lower you can defiantly do more with a higher end CPU and iGPU

    You've never run two monitors off a HD integrated have you?

    I have. and using AMD, and currently my parents have my old setup. A computer from 2011 that has integrated AMD graphics that can run skyrim on high settings

     How do exchanges work? I bought my graphics card from bhphotovideo. Just in case. I have a friend coming over tomorrow night to help me figure this out. 

    Contact the retailer and tell them the item has issues and that you wish to replace it, every seller is different. For example if you buy NewEgg Premier which is a subscription service for $50 a year(good for returning items you purchased by accident). B&H should have an exchange policy like most other stores, simply contact them.
