New Alienware M15 - an ultrabook from Alienware?

Its funny how times change - I bought my first laptop as a mobile gaming PC, I was moving around a lot with work so was easier than a PC. But once work settled down I went back to a PC - Mainly down to cost and upgrade options, gradually upgrade bits over the years instead of large investments every...

Intel show off 28 core processor at 5ghz

I was reading about this as well, the intel processor was a bit of a joke, not entirely sure they were trying to prove. I'm probably being a bit dumb, but are these processors targeted at the consumer market in anyway or are they just for Commercial/Enterprise use? Even for a gaming PC wouldn't ther...

Topping MX3 - Desktop Ammplifier

I think this is just an alternative to an internal soundcard and allows you to use passive speakers - I think there is a theory that an internal soundcard can get interference, but it isn't something that I've noticed - But I'm definitely not an Audiophile (That's probably why I don't understand Hea...

Topping MX3 - Desktop Ammplifier

A friend of mine has a very old Creative Labs DTT3500 speaker setup and he's thinking of replacing them, he's found a neat desktop amp (http://en.tpdz.net/products_detail/productId=35.html) that he likes the look of, it appears to have digital input (Including USB/Bluetooth/NFC) and as far as I can ...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

Thanks for all the comments guys - Think I'm going to get my geek on with a good spreadsheet and start comparing options available. At the moment my initial options are: AOC Q2778VQE - http://eu.aoc.com/en/products/q2778vqe?redirected=true Iiyama Silver Crow G-Master - http://gmaster.iiyama.com/gl_e...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

So I've been doing a bit more research on this, think I might have jumped the gun a bit and didn't appreciate the range of options available. Resolution - I think I've blissfully ignored the differences in resolution, my current resolution is 1680 x 1050 and it seems the most common resolution is 10...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

59252 For TV's its a waste of time unless its huge and you're sat 4 ft from it. monitors are different. You sit closer. And an ultrawide starts to look like 2 monitors but without a bezel in the middle. and as you sit close to it, curved looks better as it wraps around your vision. This is exactly ...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

So I've done a few upgrades on my desktop PC over the last few years, but completely neglected the monitor (Which might be a bit stupid after splashing out on a nice Gfx card last year but using a 10+ year old monitor) My current monitor is 24" and I use it mainly for browsing the internet and ...

Election - Who you voting for and why?

I wouldn't say that I like either Labour or Conservative, but I'm leaning more towards Conservative as I agree with more of their policies. I don't agree with increasing the tax rate for people earning £80k (I wouldn't be one of them as I don't earn anywhere near that much), having the top 2% contri...

The Division

58101 Is the game playable on PC?John Yes - Playing it on PC, although had to make sure I finished Fallout 4 before starting. I don't have a console so never got around to playing Destiny, it looked good though. 58103 I had it on PC. It was good for a bit, decent gameplay, nice equipment and stats ...

The Division

Anyone playing this at the moment? It was a gift for Christmas but haven't been able to get into it until last night as I needed to upgrade my Gfx card.

Only just getting started but quite like it at the moment.

How often does your Credit Card provider block your card incorrectly?

I very rarely have an issue, although I did try to buy some memory from Crucial last week and the order wouldn't go through, although I think this was Crucial not progressing the order rather than my Credit Card provider. For info - If you're travelling abroad take a look at a Card/App called "...

Phone update - 2016

I'm a fan of HTC, had an Incredible S originally then moved to a HTC One (m7). After 2 years the phone was still going strong so decided to move to a sim only contract and keep the phone, I've missed out the m8 & m9 and only really now considering the m10. I have a Samsung phone for work and don...

Windows 10 Problems - Complete Failure

May have been a bit quick to blame the mobo/cpu/memory, I decided to try and install Windows 8 on another HDD last night, I completely unplugged the SSD so I didn't install on that by mistake. I managed to get Windows installed without any problems and started downloading updates, waiting for the Wi...

Windows 10 Problems - Complete Failure

So I've been having a few problems with my PC and thought I'd see if the collective had any ideas on what the problem might be. I did some upgrades to my PC about 6 months ago, buying a new CPU/Mobo/Memory and a new SDD drive so that I could install a fresh copy of Windows 10. Its been running prett...
