For anyone who is, plans to or already has made a computer. Here you can share tips, info and the progress of your custom builds.
I have had many people ask for their gif images re-sized, so I would like to show you how to do it :)
Noob question -> building my first highend computer and im just picking out components but here is my problem
the website i am looking at for graphics cards displays the memory clock speed in mhz for some cards and gbps for others so i cant really compair them; not knowing how the two units of measurement scale up to each other.
so can anyone help
what is mhz to gbps?
In my opinion you only have to look for benchmarks, which gpu's have you in mind?
3gb amd radeon hd7950
2gb nvidia geforce gtx 660ti
there isnt much in the price between them so im just wondering which is a better choice
also another question.
im been looking at duel card options but orginaly i though 2 cards would give X2 performance but a little research on google revealed that this is not the case for either crossfire or sli.
so i just want to know peoples opinions
is it worth getting 2 weaker cards over one strong one?
always take the single gpu option beside you already have a 660ti then the second one would give you a boost for less money.
I would take the 7950 but when you want PhysiX then you would have to take the 660ti.
I have a weird problem i often get random bluescreens with my system.
Anybody knows a solution?
OS: Win 7 64bit
Memory: 4x2 Corsair Vengeance 1600 mhz
CPU: Phenom II X6 1090T
GPU: GeForce GTX 275
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
Did you check for temperatures?
In reviews I saw that some people notice pretty high temp on the north bridge...
Need a bit more info than "Random Blue Screens", when does it happen, like a particular event or time?
You overclocking, is the inside of your case clean and free from dust, failing fans, OS corruption or a bad program, faulty internal cables etc.
I'll wait some days i just put one of the ram into another slot. The case is clean and the OS is only 2 months old and memtest got some errors.
have had no bsod since i put the ram into another slot hopefully also in next time
It could also be an application setting...
Right-click on the games .exe file and see if it is set to run in 8bit/16 mode, programs have this to ensure compatability with older monitors.
And with older cards, the newest drivers can actually cause more problems than they fix, be cautious of this...
