  1. Re: Please advise and comment on new PC build.

    I'm using version 431.60 from Nvidia, due to the mouse point issue in the latest revision. Discovered that when gaming, I need to go in to GPU Tweak 2 since I have an ASUS GTX 1070, and crank up the...
  2. Re: Please advise and comment on new PC build.

    For my upgrade I went with the Core i7 8700, 32GB's of Crucial Ballistix DDR4 2666 ram, a copy of Windows 10 and a ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-H Gaming board. Some might ask why I went the route I did, for...

    Re: Which Windows 10 to get (32bit or 64) ?

    Actually no. If you have 8GB's of ram in your computer, 32bit Windows 10 won't be able to utilize it all. If you have 4GB's or lower than you should be fine with 32bit Windows 10, otherwise you have...

    Re: Need to switch Providers

    Yes you can watch TV using just internet. For example, Netflix in HD is $13.00 a month, if you don't watch sports at all, then you wouldn't need a service such as ESPN +. HULU with live TV, is $45.00...

    Re: Recommended sound card

    Hmm, never heard of that USB AMP you are using. The ASUS Xonar AE 7.1 uses a CMEDIA 6632AE chip which is nothing more than a CMEDIA 6632A chip paired with an ASMEDIA PCI Express to USB 3.0 bridge...

    Re: Recommended sound card

    I do have the ASUS Xonar AE, which does sell for under $100.00, and I really like it. I can leave my headphones plugged in, and easily switch between speakers and headphone in the soundcard app. I do...

    Re: nvidia shield drive

    I will consider it, but the Nvidia Shield Game controller is needed for any Android TV games that require it. It still works, just haven't used it in quite some time.

    I have an Nvidia Shield 16GB from 2015, but I'm considering trashing it. When the controller went nuts within the warranty period, Nvidia wouldn't even honor the warranty, and I could easily have the...

    Windows 10 is worse if you do the free upgrade, then they shove advertisements for Microsoft Office in your face, and that was something I never did like, I got rid of it. There are things, if you...
