  6. So with tax return right around the corner I have some upgrades in mind for my rig. 1st I'm upgrading to a GTX 1080 of some kind (who knows what I'll go with, hybrids look enticing but will likely go with a nice air cooled card.) I'm looking at getting a curved ultrawide gaming monitor in hopes it will replace both of my 23" Alienware Optx monitors. I run a marketing business so the productivity room on an ultrawide coupled with the extra bling in gaming is really enticing. I'm leaning toward the ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q but see there are several new ones that could come out at any time (Acer X34P, HP Omen X35, AOC Agon AG352UCG). What would the guys over at OCC do?
  7. any folder on the system can be pinned to the right side of the start menu
  8. No idea but its almost guaranteed they will make some money off the app. thats really what its all about. I like the win 10 start menu so ill be leaving it like it is.

    PS4 -> Dual Link DVI

    well looks like you might have to spend $40 to $50 to get it to work right.

    PS4 -> Dual Link DVI

    something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/DVI-to-HDMI-to-DVI-Adapter-DVI-D-24-1-Dual-Link-Male-Female-/201283677132?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2edd712bcc and something like this to beable to use audio http://www.ebay.com/itm/1080P-Composite-S-Video-Ypbpr-R-L-Audio-to-HDMI-Converter-HDTV-AV-Adapter-NEW-/191164732367?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c824e53cf ive used the composite to hdmi to use a wii through hdmi and changed the audio over to speakers.
  12. i don't mean to be disrespectful but people that sit and do nothing for 19 hours straight need to get out and get a job. To me it can be a sign of laziness and is not a healthy lifestyle to just sit. If a person is able to get out and do something they need to get out to and do something.
  13. i'm looking forward to windows 10 myself. And matter of fact i have been looking at some of the console only games and have been trying to decide between xbox and ps4. If xbox is implemented well into windows 10 i might just have to go that route if i decide to get a console.

    New GPU

    Go MSI then. You can't really go wrong with your choices they are both good reputable graphics card manufacturers.

    New GPU

    Reread my post. I added and changed a couple of things: the model number of the FTW card I mentioned being one. To sum it up either get the EVGA 970 SSC or the MSI. MSI will do fine and will likely not cause you any problems. I am an EVGA fan myself so I tend to go that route over the others.

    New GPU

    I Bought the EVGA 970 SSC with ACX 2.0+ and really like it. To be honest I would not get the FTW unless you get the top notch FTW with the ACX 2.0+ cooler (04G-P4-3978-KR). The way it looks to me the EVGA 970 SSC with ACX 2.0+ (04G-P4-3975-KR) is a bit cheaper, has just a bit better cooling ability, has better overclock ability since it has 1 8 pin and 1 6 pin power connecter vs the FTW with ACX 2.0 has just 2 6 pin power connectors. Im running my 970 SSC right now at 1419 boost clock speed and could stand to go much higher. As for the question at hand: If you are referring to the twin frozr card, I can't tell because i think your model # you have listed is wrong, then you really won't be able to tell much difference between the two cards.It all boils down to you personal preference of looks and luck of the draw on gpu chips I say go with whichever fits your budget first then if you feel the extra year of warranty is worth the extra cost then get the EVGA.

    *FS* EVGA GTX 770 SC

    I have a GTX 770 for sale. Its the EVGA Superclocked 4GB with ACX cooler and double bios. I never flashed either bios and never overvolted. I did however raise the power target and gpu temp target. Comes with the poster and the adapter that it came with. Just upgraded to a 970 is the reason for sale. Hoping to get about $240 shipped in the US. Not really wanting to ship internationally. I'm up for offers and possibly partial trades but would like to see what kind of $$ I can get out of it before i do a partial trade. Just hit me up.

    *FS* EVGA GTX 770 SC

    i hope you're right. I have it on the local Craigslist as well but I don't expect it to sell quick there. If you get to wanting it too bad just shoot me an offer. I have quite a bit more work room for somebody i can possibly meet in person and especially someone i know.

    *FS* EVGA GTX 770 SC

    Why don't you just buy it. I wouldn't even have to pay for shipping. I'm working in that area next month so I could just meet you with it. Sounds like a deal to me lol.

    What's your PC plans for 2015?

    looking at a new ssd soon. considering a new closed loop cooler. other than thiat i think im setting pretty good.
  22. what i ended up doing is taking one of the fans off and using the same screw, i could go deeper so its held on pretty solid. Not ocing my cpu anyway. Thanks for the ideas and the help.
  23. One of the screw holes in my h80i radiator is stripped. What can i do to use a screw in this hole? Thought about a glue of some kind but don't want it there permanently. What are some of my options without buying a new cooler?
  24. Thanks. Didn't even think of that. I should have some of that on hand because i use it for my rc cars.
