    time to upgrade could use some advice

    Alright, well I think I'm going to go for a gtx660. World of Tanks and Hawken both seem to favor Nvidia, and I have a few other games with Physx. The in game credit deal nvidia has right now isn't bad either. The 460's still seem to have some worth so I'll probably flip that and then use the 660 with a gt 240 I have laying around to offload the physx just because i have that extra card laying around. Thanks for the advice guys.

    I already overclocked the 460 and its still struggling. Running 2600k with 8gb ram and a 750w psu

    How's the gtx660 fair vs 7870? From what i've seen the 7870 leads by a small amount. I'm actually leaning towards a 660 now. Price comparing i can get one about $15 cheaper than a 7870 along with some free game bonuses. I also fold in my free time and last time I checked nvidia cards were far superior when it came to folding.
  4. Currently running a gtx460 1gb with primary display being 1680x1050. My favorite game World of Tanks is now starting to push 460 and I can't run it at max settings like I'd like. I'd also like to start playing Hawken and some other games so I figure an upgrade of some sort is in order. What do you guys think would be the best bang for the buck upgrade wise? Should I try to find a cheap used 460 and SLI, or just upgrade now to something like a 7870 or equivalent? Thanks for the help in advance.

    poor performance going through wired router

    Well i got the tp-link. So far so good. Range is great and the speeds are where they should be!

    Being a college student, I'm pretty cheap. I was thinking of something along the lines of this tp-link. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704038

    alright thanks makes sense the theoretical speeds are never reached in real life. Well any good router recommendations? custom firmware would be nice.

    poor performance going through wired router

    any tips on any settings to change to see if the speed increases?
  9. Hey guys, I'm currently up at school and noticed my internet speeds were poor compared to my friends down the hall. I previously had a linksys wrt54g hooked to the ethernet port and then had my desktop wired directly into it. I plugged my desktop directly to the ethernet and my speeds drastically improved from around 50 to 85 Mbps. The router is running a basically default configured version of dd-wrt. What's causing my slowdown when using the router inbetween my ethernet port and desktop? Thanks for the help in advance.

    Criticize my build before I order

    That would be the main idea so he wouldn't have to think twice about it edit: beat me to it lol Mostly office productivity. Tons of Microsoft Office, a lot of Peach Tree accounting. I'm not sure how Peach Tree works but he was telling me that his computer was the main server for all the rest at the company when it came to using Peach Tree. I can't really think of anything else out of the ordinary except maybe a little photo editing now and then. Oh yea and occasional video conferencing.

    Criticize my build before I order

    He doesn't do anything super technical just figured I could future proof it for even longer than his current rig. He'd just love to have a rig that boots so fast and is well, quite snappy lol. He's pretty decent with computers just doesn't know how to build them. Thanks for the advice so far guys. Thanks Angel for taking the time to put together a rig for him, but form factor and power savings aren't a concern.

    Criticize my build before I order

    Hey guys, I built my last rig right when Sandy Bridge came out. Since then I haven't really kept track at all of the new sandy bridge or ivy bridge cpu's. Also from what I've read bulldozer has been pretty meh. Anyways, this rig is for my dad at his business. He's still running a pentium D over there so this rig should really wake things up. Like I said feel free to criticize the build if there's areas where something would be more appropriate or cheaper. Thanks! CPU: i5-3330 MB: ASRock H77 RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw series HDD: WD Blue 500G OCZ Vertex 4 The idea here is for it to be really quick. I'll use the ssd for programs and then run 2 of the hdd's in a redundant raid setup to preserve important files PSU: Antec 500w Case: Xclio Case
