    1080ti sli

    Thanks. I'm not looking for new. Not ready to pay that much for another card. The one I have was 699.00. Hoping to save some money by buying used.

    1080ti sli

    Is there any real reason to go SLI with a 1080ti right now. I'm playing doom on highest settings and geting 60fps and above. I just want it. But dont think there's going too be any real benefit in the game.

    Did you happen to notice it sold for 699.00 That's the cost of a new one. That's just crazy.

    I followed the link and it took me to a card thats already sold . BTW how important is the back plate ? Does it act as a heatsink ?

    1080ti sli

    I'm not ready to buy a new MB and cpu. I just built the rig I have last year. I doesn't look like the 8700k can be used with my current MB.

    Ive been looking at a second card. The prices are still very high. I do want one. I was looking at ebay. People are bidding on used card for almost the price of a new one. CRAZY. Thanks for the input.
  14. Ive been thinking that this should have happened years ago. An external box that would allow us to remove the cards from the case along with all their heat. It should have it's own psu the can be upgraded in power. http://www.amd.com/en-us/innovations/software-technologies/technologies-gaming/xconnect \

    Its about time.

    I would think something like this would be good for the desktop pc also. I agree that there would need the direct connect with the pcie slots for max performance . A vga card house with its own cooling and psu would make the inside of my case a lot cooler and less cluttered.

    OS Question

    Im have a new MSI laptop delivered today. It has Win10 64 Pro. I have a copy on Win7 64 that has no bloat ware on it . The win7 OS ,that was upgraded for free to Win10 was used on the LP that died and is being replaced by the MSI. If the MSI has too much garbage on it can I just format and use the Win7 and expect to still get Win10 upgrade free?

    OS Question

    Thanks. It says on the disk that its a back up disk. But it does not have anything about Gateway,which is the dead LT. This disk came as a free upgrade from Vista when I purchased the Gateway laptop new.

    Laptop Died

    So Im going to try removing the motherboard to gain access to the GPU and try to re-flow the solder a heat gun. Ive watched a lot of u tube vids about it and it looks would be worth trying . If it doesn't to the trash pile it goes.

    Laptop Died

    I have a one of the old Gateway P 7808u FX gaming LP's. I just died . I get all the lights and the CD rom still spins. The power button still turn it off and on. It still charges the battery but theres no video or any other type of activity. No fans , Hdd spin ect. I looked into this on line and all I seem to find is something about wires chafing and shorting out and stopping it from booting up. I don't think that's the problem. Any iders as to why ? power supply maybe? I have ordered a replacement already. Its an MSI GE72 Apache Pro - 029 with 17.3in screen. That should be a nice upgrade from the Gateway. It will allow my wife to play Candy Crush in Hi Def.

    laptop battery dying?

    I dont keep my battery in my laptop and just use the household power to extend the life of the battery. 99% of my LT use is within easy reach of an ac outlet. If I know that I will be needing the battery I just plug it in until its charged. I also try to discharge it all the way down afterwards.
