I currently have an AMD Radeon HD 5870 and want to upgrade, help!
I've recently upgraded the majority of the components in my rig, i7-3930k, SSD's, etc., but have held off upgrading the GPU. Currently I have an ASUS HD5870, and while it runs most games pretty decently, would like to explore high end single GPU options for gaming. I've looked at the Radeon HD7970 GHz, GTX 680, GTX 670 and Radeon HD7970. Help please!
I have $545 to spend on my PC, what should I buy?
I am planning to overhaul my PC into a decent gaming rig that could run latest games at high display settings without a hitch. My budget is INR 30000 or $545. What motherboard, processor, Graphics Card, RAM and PSU do you suggest to meet my criteria within the budget?
My computer seems to be frozen on the setup page, help!
I just got a used ASUS Crosshair IV computer, and cannot get it to go past the setup page. I have an older Dell computer, but is nothing like this one. What do I need to know?
Does using the 8x slot for SLI effect performance at all?
I have a system with the following setup : AMD 955BE CPU, 4GB RAM, 850W PSU and an ASRock M3A785GXH/128M motherboard that has 3 PCIe slots.
One is 16x, the other is 8x and the last is 4x.
If I were to do a 2-way SLI setup with a GTX 660 (using the x16 and x8 slots), would the 8x slot impact performance?
For the moment I'm using a 1680x1050 monitor and in the future I am not planning on going any higher than 1920x1080.
Which GPU should I get on a $300 budget?
I want to buy a new graphics card. I currently have a NVIDIA-powered Gigabyte card and I wanna know that when I get a new card(s), it's the best bang for my buck card(s) I can get. The most I plan to spend is $300. Also, at the moment, which graphics vendor has the most powerful or most recommended card out there, AMD or NVIDIA? Thank you for any help.
Which GPU should I get for mostly FPS and RTS gaming?
Hi, I am just starting to learn how to build a PC but is stumped about choosing graphics cards! Living in Singapore, I only have a limited selection within my price range and would love to have expert's advice on which to get! I mainly play FPS/RTS, and action games like Assassin's Creed.
Thank you so much!

I have a Z77-based motherboard and want to install 32GB of 2400MHz RAM, should I buy 2 x 16GB kits?
I have a Z77 motherboard and ivy bridge i7 processor and would like to make use of it's full potential by fitting 32gb RAM. As the Z77 only uses Dual Channel RAM I am finding it very hard to find a set of 4 x 8GB 2400mhz dual channel RAM modules. Would it work it I bought 2 sets of 2 x 8gb 2400mhz Dual Channle kits and fitted them both?

Hello to everybody.
I have a question about if buy an Intel core i5 3570K Ivy Bridge (with an ASRock Z77 Extreme6) or wait for an possbile Intel core i5 4570K Haswell (and an hypothetical Z87 motherboard).
