[QUOTE=Goodthief;35872369]I recently got a new screen for my PC, it's a 35 or so inch sony bravia TV (one of those 3D ones too). My question is if it's normal that my resolution is still at 1920x1080, should it be higher or is that it for TVs because this thing is really big, everything looks fine but I want to know if 35 inch screens should be at this resolution[/QUOTE] Tv's are either 720p or 1080p. Unless you go to quadHD resolutions from Samsung or Panasonic, but those screens are 70-110"
I've currently got a Samsung 2232BW which is 1680x1050 max, I'd like to stream at a higher resolution, which is obviously not possible if the game can't get bigger, so I plan on getting a new monitor! I'd like a 16:10, 24" monitor with a minimum resolution of 1920x1200. Any suggestions? Cheers.
You plan on streaming 1080p? I hope you have one monster of a computer.
Well I can record at 1080p, but stream at 720p, the point is the monitor! Any suggestions?
So my machine is having some heating issues and I'd like to reapply the thermal paste when I take it apart to get all of the dust out. Which brands do you guys prefer?
Arctic Silver 5

Which brands do you guys prefer?[/QUOTE] Whatever's cheap, it all performs nearly the same, really. Unless you're some crazy OCer or watercooler, don't worry about it. I just bought a bunch of cheap silicone crap that's really cheap and it works great.
Im considering buying a 64 GB or maybe 128 GB SSD to put Windows and some programs / games on. If I bought one, how do I transfer windows onto it (and maybe some games)? Step by step: Im assuming I just plug in the SSD. Once I have my main hard drive and the empty SSD, I want to put windows onto the SDD. What do I do?
Well normally you...install windows...to the SSD..
[QUOTE=Smashman;35874482]Well I can record at 1080p, but stream at 720p, the point is the monitor! Any suggestions?[/QUOTE] Streaming 1080p is pretty pointless, even on youtube. And I have a reputation of doing all I can for quality. Even professional streams for StarCraft and pro games max out at 720p.
[QUOTE=TehWhale;35875671]Well normally you...install windows...to the SSD..[/QUOTE] Except I didn't have the SSD when I built my computer. Its not uncommon for people to upgrade their computer over time. I am asking if it is possible to simply move windows rather than have to reinstall it (which I know it is, I just want advice on the best way to do it).

I want to get a bigger monitor to be able to see the game at a vaugely recognisable size. I don't want to stream at 1080p, just have the game at the size and then bring it down.

Stupid question, but whats the best way to build up static that I can hit a mobo with? Like, any simple objects (like feet on carpet) I can use, then touch a mobo/inside of a pc with to make it short?
Why would you want to do that? A wooly sock would be the best probably.

A dressing gown, if it's the right material like mine.

Or you could just not break someone's computer because that's a dick move.

Guys, I need help on comparing a laptops graphics card. I'm not pro at comparing ATI/Nvidia (both mobile) cards. I'm getting a mid range laptop for mid level gaming. Which is better: 2GB AMD Radeon HD 7690M GDDR5 or NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M Graphics with 2GB GDDR5 Btw im asking which is more powerful, not which brand is better.

What's the price difference between the laptops?

Go for the laptop with the GT 650M.
I'm moving into my own flat next week and since my PC(currently sitting on my brothers) is broke, I'd need something else. I found an old xbox 1 for 30€ on a flea market and I know that you can put linux on there, should I go for that? I haven't bought the xbox, but shouldn't be hard to find another one. Actually I've seen one on a website for 50€ with 7 games and 1 controller. I could fix my PC as well, it's just that it still uses a socket 939 motherboard and that's exactly what's broken, so to fix it I'd have to buy a new motherboard, CPU, RAM, which would cost me way more than the xbox. I don't play much videogames lately anyways, mostly I just use the PC to browse forums, social networks, listening to music, watching movies, editing some photos/videos. Or could someone suggest something else? I'd have a budget of like 150-200€.
Is it possible to use a second graphics card from a different series of AMD graphics to output video? My dad is going to use my 4870, but it only supports 2 displays at a time, and he wants 3 to have an output to the TV (without using a splitter). Can he use any current AMD card and it will output as a third screen? Or will we have to buy another 48XX card/single 6XXX card to do 3 monitors? The other card wouldn't need to help render or anything, just function as an extra display port.
Does anyone have an idea on what might be causing my internet speed to go down to about 2 mbps late at night when it should be around 30? Because I'm ready to call Comcast on the phone and bitch.
Hey, my dad was looking into a laptop for his work, and he wants something with an i7. Is this any good? [url]http://www.walmart.com/ip/Acer-Black-11.6-Aspire-TimelineX-AS1830T-68U118-Laptop-PC-with-Intel-Core-i7-680UM-Processor-and-Windows-7-Home-Premium/19472992[/url]
