I'm after some new GPUs for my 2560x1440 gaming, help!

Question by Clint from United States | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards & GPUs | Feb 5, 2013 11:19 PM CST

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.

I'd like to know about the advantages of 120Hz monitors

Hello. :D

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.

I want to get some new RAM for my computer but want to make sure its compatible first!

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?


My HP desktop is having issues, is there something you can do to help?

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?
