    Want to Sell [FS] G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Memory

    Hey there, Selling some DDR3 Memory I bought hoping would work in my Dell Optiplex Computer but didn't due to some stupid ram compatibility issues. It was bought from NCIX On 10/02/2015 for $59.99, I still have the original receipt and packaging. Currently they are selling for $42.99 on sale...

    Moving from a Core2Duo system to I5, where to look?

    Oh I work with the guy, and I know he's legit. If something goes wrong I'll just take his fingers.

    Moving from a Core2Duo system to I5, where to look?

    Thanks, I was trying to snuff him out but he continued. Sounds like a solid plan. Right now I'm buying a new Camera body so that's taking my monies for the moment. I'll see how the larger file sizes and software perform on my current setup (day to day use is still fine). I need a better (and...

    Moving from a Core2Duo system to I5, where to look?

    Actually it turns out a coworker has some connections with a Local Computer retailer (remaining nameless for a reason) so I'll see what pricing I get through him, but regardless, cost of new isn't an issue.

    Maybe for you?

    Moving from a Core2Duo system to I5, where to look?

    Spend more for used parts that might get damaged in shipping with a "all sales final" tag at the top of the add? I'm okay thanks. I can afford new parts, I just need some advice on which ones.

    Moving from a Core2Duo system to I5, where to look?

    In the past I bought into the platform that was just replaced (DDR2 when DDR3 came out etc). So I think buying the current platform is probably the best bet as I tend to keep these things a while (we're talking circa 2008 for the current rig). An I3 might be the best option, I'm personally not...

    Moving from a Core2Duo system to I5, where to look?

    Hey there, I'm currently running a Core2Duo E7400 (@3.6GHz) setup with 4gb of DD2 ram, 4870 video card, and an Asus P5QPro motherboard to match. Obviously, this stuff is stone-age. The SSD keeps things decently quick, but I use this for a lot of photo editing, and occasional game on Steam...

    Dell Optiplex 780 compatible ram

    Yeah this is what I've been hearing/reading. A friend works in IT and has a stick that should work. Going to try in a couple days.

    Dell Optiplex 780 compatible ram

    I have put the ram I bought (both the Corsair and the later G.Skill) in the slot that it currently works in. Even just 1 stick of the new stuff on it's own doesn't work. Is there something else I should be trying?

    Dell Optiplex 780 compatible ram

    Hey there, I recently picked up a used Dell Optiplex 780 desktop to be used as a HTPC. I've added a 120gb SSD and a Radeon HD6450 video card. Only issue? 2gb of ram. For playing a movie it's no so bad, but I might add photo editing software and maybe a game or two in the future and I'd like 4...

    Adding a GPU with HDMI to existing GPU (Crossfire)

    Yeah, couple to the fact that my processor and ram are dated, a newer faster card would make zero difference in computer performance (SSD was the last upgrade). I only play CS: Go, and TF2 nowadays anyway.

    Adding a GPU with HDMI to existing GPU (Crossfire)

    It would be a moot point in my very dated computer. The money would be better used elsewhere.

    Adding a GPU with HDMI to existing GPU (Crossfire)

    Wow, I didn't know that. And I still have the dongle too. A quick google of the Part Number shows it is indeed the Audio/Video adapter for the 4000 and 5000 series cards. Well I just saved myself a heap of money. Thanks for the help!

    Adding a GPU with HDMI to existing GPU (Crossfire)

    Hi there, As the title suggests, I am planning on adding a GPU to my system that has an HDMI output. My computer will be acting as a HTPC, as well as a desktop and my current GPU does not have HDMI (I need Video and Audio pass through). My current GPU is an HD4870, and my concern is with adding...

    Windows 7 Not Sharing with WD TV Live

    I did those things in a previous guide. I did however go to the WDTV live in the media streaming options and allow full access (not default). Waiting to try that.
