    Why can't my 6950 view 1080P video without unwatchable stuttering?

    When I watch YouTube or Twitch in 720P it's smooth but when I crank it up to 1080P I get stuttering so bad it's unwatchable. (Q6660, 8Gb RAM). Hell, even my old laptop (Intel HD Graphics 4000) can view 1080P YouTube and twitch videos (just tested and it viewed 1080P @ 60fps YouTube vid...

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    Okay, so for clarity, we have a Arris (Comcast) modem in our living room underneath the living room PC. That then connects through Ethernet into the Asus WiFi router which is ontop of the living room PC desk. Now we do have Ethernet from throughout the house plugged into the Asus WiFi router...

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    Okay so I got this switch: https://smile.amazon.com/TP-Link-TL-SG1008D-Unmanaged-Gigabit-Network/dp/B001EVGIYG/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=TL-SG1008D&qid=1558053467&s=electronics&sr=1-1 and I got the Unifi AP AC Lite. My question now is; A) I should change my Asus WiFi router into an AP in...

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    That's odd that the Lite has better range than the Long Range version. I'll give the Lite a try. I'll definitely want it to have the same SSID and password, in order to have that seamless hand-off. So my WiFi router becomes an AP, and the Unifi AC Lite would be an AP in the back end of the...

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    I was with you up until the last line. So if I was to buy and use an AP (like the Ubiquiti) I would have to turn off my WiFi routers wifi signal? So essentially to get full home coverage I'd need to buy two, one for the front of the house (to replace the wifi routers coverage) and the second for...

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    That thing is cool. There are three downsides that I can see however; 1) I'd have to replace my ASUS wifi router with it. 2) It costs significantly more than say the AP recommended earlier (Ubiquiti) 3) Maybe I'm wrong but from looking at the picture, where are all the Ehernet ports on the...

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    Interesting! Is this one the same but just more powerful? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015PRCBBI/ref=psdc_1194486_t3_B015PR20GY I notice it is only $15 more.

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    As I said, there's a room upstairs and in the back that are wired with Ethernet. I believe Cat5. And to clarify, I don't NEED to increase the signal strength/distance of the WiFi router I own, but instead I mean I want the WiFi signal on our property overall to be increased. So whether that...

    How do I extend my in-house WiFi?

    So in my family living room with our living room PC we have our (comcast) router and WiFI router (ASUS RT-AC66W). But once you get to the backroom, upstairs and outside in the garage, the signal strength is weak at best. I'd really love it if I could buy something that improves the WiFi signal...

    Can you provide me some quick help with picking a PC monitor?

    I think it is an AMD 6950. The thing is, while my gaming rig (in my sig) is hooked up to my 55" TCL TV, one day it could very well be hooked up to the monitor I am going to buy this week. So that is why I mention wanting the monitor to at least be acceptable when it comes to gaming. Currently...

    Can you provide me some quick help with picking a PC monitor?

    So, I have a crappy 20 inch hooked up to my second PC. I am looking for a new monitor (general usage, potentially gaming but I'm not a hardcore gamer with a picky eye) and I figure the deals now (Black Friday + Cyber Monday) mean now is the time to buy. What I'm looking for: 24" or bigger...

    I think my external HDD just died, help! What are my options?

    Thanks but guys, I bought a Synology NAS with two HDD's in it (the second a mirror). I was taking data off the backup drive that failed to put on that. So I was literally doing what you guys are recommending (getting my important data into a truly safe backup medium), it just so happened that...

    I think my external HDD just died, help! What are my options?

    Very interesting. I would be inclined to think mine is having this issue or something similar considering the drive spins up (with no clicks or noises) and my BIOS sees it and when I put in my "eject a drive" sees it, it just never shows up in "My Computer" or in any other spot hard drives...

    I think my external HDD just died, help! What are my options?

    No it doesn't show up in Drive Management in windows.

    I think my external HDD just died, help! What are my options?

    Seeing the drive in BIOS is a thing I need to check, however yes, as I said in my OP; "I tried putting it in my PC" which means I plugged in a SATA cable from my Mobo to the HDD. Update: Yes the HDD shows up in my BIOS.
