What is a decent 3DMark score for the new 3DMark? I'm just wondering if my system is decent or not.
I currently have an i7 920 @ stock and tri-sli GTX-280's. What would help out gaming@2560x1440 the most from these options: get a good closed loop water cooler and OC the CPU to ~4GHZ and a single hd7970/gtx-680 or save the money from the water cooler leaving cpu @ stock, 2x hd7950's / 2x gtx-670's. My budget is around $650 and time frame for upgrading is going to be in April.
First this my Gaming PC:
- Intel core i5 3570K
- Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Z77
- Corsair H80
- 7870 or GTX 660 (coming soon on 2 weeks)
- Samsung MV3V-4G3D/US DDR3 2x4GB 1600MHz
- Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
- Cooler Master 690 II Advanced
I have a question about is necessary use 120Hz (1920x1080) monitors for more smooth movements and better peformance for gaming over 60 FPS without activate V-Sync.
And so if using their monitors improve on Full-HD movies. (all formats)
I seen on many forums but don't sure about buy a 120Hz monitor or 60Hz monitor and 60GB SSD.
PD: Not interested in using 3D, just a Full-HD monitor with more frequency than 60Hz.
How much difference is between high-end motherboards in performance? lets say asus sabertooth z77, Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H and Biostar Hi-Fi Z77X. i want to overclock them but i dont know which to buy.
Hi, i want to buy a new 2x4GB RAM kit to my computer. I have a GA-EP45T-UD3LR mobo and wanted to know if when choosing the memory i gotta stick to the supported chipset of each company and model.
For example, i really wanna get some G.skill set of memories but the product details says that the supported mobo chipsets are P67/Z68/P55/AMD7xx.....
Will i be able use it on my mobo? If so, then will it run at max speed supported by my mobo?
is there any risk or other issues that might pop up?
Hello again Tweakers,
I'm going to get some watercooling for my rig and wanted to know if the new Corsair H110 will fit in my NZXT Phantom 410 without additional hole modifications (like the Kraken X60), or if I should just go with the H100i which I know fits.
I have a EVGA GeForce GTX 680 4GB w/Backplate GPU card. Do you think a SILVERSTONE ST45SF-G 450W SFX12V PSU is enough to power up for a M-ITX setup? Because I have a SILVERSTONE FT-03 MINI case which only fits a SFX 12V PSU.
My computer shuts off completely when i try to play a game, it lets me play for a few then shuts off. Also, I have checked all the hardware and put fresh gel on the heat sink and in the video card, and it is still doing it. What else could it be?
I have a HP Pavilion desktop that I purchased in late 2009. All of a sudden it has started shutting down. I have rebooted, I have cleaned out all the dust, Windows 7 has been rebooted with a disc. I carried to a computer technician who kept it for a week and it ran fine with him. No shut downs! I brought the computer back home and it started shutting down all over again. Windows will come up and a few seconds later it will say "logging off" and "shutting down". I have done everything I can think of. It ran fine with computer tech. it stayed on the whole time with hiim. What's wrong?
