    StoreMI Upgrade / BSOD Solution?

    Hi All -- I'm looking for some recommendations on what I should be looking at to resolve this BSOD issue I've got. Below is the background, as well as the options I'm considering. Background: I built a 2700X-based PC a few years ago that's run like a champ until recently, when I started getting...

    Acer XF270HU 144Hz IPS Freesync

    Any chance anyone's used this monitor with a an 480 to see if they get the 23-144 Hz range over HDMI 2.0?

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    Looking at the various TP Link routers as an upgrade... On Amazon I can get the C7 for $90, the C8 for 110, and the C9 for $130. This would be for an apartment that usually has 3 computers connected, 3-4 cell phones, a NAS box, and a smartTV streaming Netflix. The old, simple g router...

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    I'm using a DVI cable. Think I should get a displayport cable and give that a shot? I've got a glossy version. Edit: Is this the cable you're recommending?

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    Anyone ever solve this issue? This seems to happen to me once or twice a week, except turning the monitor off and on doesn't solve it. I just usually have to wait 10-15 minutes and everything comes back up like normal. Power supply issue? Do I need to get the monitor serviced? Maybe hope for new...

    ASUS Z77 Motherboards - Official Support Thread

    I'm having a weird network issue with my P8Z77-V Pro. Every time I reboot, my computer doesn't see the Intel NIC (I think it's "failed to start, code 10"). It sees the WiFi fine, just not the wired connection. If I reinstall the Intel Driver (latest ProWinx64 from Intel website), the NIC pops...

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    I just bit on this on a semi-whim as I was picking up some stuff at Microcenter. Haven't gotten back to my desktop to check it out, but I do have a question -- can I get full resolution off of an HDMI cable, or do I need to use the DVI cable?

    Blu Ray Burners

    I don't think you understand what kind of data we're talking about. I can shoot 8 GB of photos in a couple hours. When I take a trip I usually come back with 12-24 GB of photos. If there's a free backup website that handles that, by all means! I also don't know what you mean by the type of...

    That was the most tempting deal for me too, but I feel like a 7950 at $285 AR is probably more bang for the buck, if you don't have a clear preference between red and green...

    Are you talking about 7950s or 7970s? I think that XFX card is a 7970, not a 7950.

    Thoughts on a GTX 670 at $330 AR vs a 7950 at $285 AR? I think I'd be leaning towards the 7950 for the ~$50 difference...
