• My PC always seems to crash whilst playing games?

    Hello, I recently bought some new parts for my system. Included were: a used I7-4770K, a used 16GB RAM and a new 1060 6GB. The system will crash every game after a random amount of time playing either by crashing the application, deadlocking my PC or simply giving me a BSOD. I've cleaned my system up and... show more
    Hello, I recently bought some new parts for my system. Included were: a used I7-4770K, a used 16GB RAM and a new 1060 6GB. The system will crash every game after a random amount of time playing either by crashing the application, deadlocking my PC or simply giving me a BSOD. I've cleaned my system up and there is sufficient storage and hardware specs to run my games. I am suspicious that it is the RAM causing it but I have no way of finding out. tips?

  • Is it ok to have 3 sticks of ram?

    Originally I purchased 8gbs of ram (1x 8gb) HyperX, but i meant to cancel that because I though it was 2 sticks, i then ordered another 8gb ram kit (2×4gb) ballistix, now I have 3 rams sticks, 16gb total. I was thinking maybe I could just keep the hyperX instead of returning it and use it with the 2 x Ballistix... show more

I was thinking maybe I could just keep the hyperX instead of returning it and use it with the 2 x Ballistix sticks. I understand it may not work as well as 4x4gb but would it work, or should I just return it, if I return it I probably won't get another 8gb kit for a while

  • Do I have to pay for this McAfee?

    It came with my computer and now it says I only have 5 days left before I have to pay for it. It says it's blocked 14,000 "bad connections". What are those? What will happen to my computer if I just let it expire?

  • Will I be able to record gameplay on a GTX 750 1 gig and 12 gigs of ddr3 And a Xeon x3440?

    Best answer: Yes, but that would depend on the game since your setup is on the cusp of being the minimum requirements for newer games. You would be able to use Nvidia's 'Shadowplay" which is a technology that's built into your GTX 750, which should be no problems with games that are a few years... show more

    You're probably thinking of streaming and/or capturing with a program like OBS which does need a powerful PC. On the other hand you can also use 2 PC's for a program like OBS. One PC for gaming and a 2nd PC with a capture card.

    You can test Shadowplay out on older games to see if you like the results it gives you and to see what your setup's limitations are. If you decide you want your PC to do more, then you would have better insight on what upgrades you could make since you would already have an idea of how to run the software.

  • How would you know if malware was deleting your important media files?

    Best answer: Normally, it wouldn't delete any files. Instead, it would just make copies for the guy who created it (to try to find credit card/other personal info that may or may not be in there somewhere) or encrypt the files then ask for money to let you have them again.

    You really have to try to get a virus, especially with MalwareBytes premium. It's not something that just happens from normal use. As long as you only visit reliable websites, download stuff from the official distributors only, and don't click on every random pop-up ad you might get, you won't get a virus.

  • Can an MSI Geforce GTX 1060 6gb fit in my case?

    Hi! I have a Lenovo Legion Y70 Cube and my GPU inside is currently a 4gb AMD Raedon 480. I recently wanted to save up to get an MSI Geforce GTX 1060 6gb but I don't know if the GPU would fit the case I am using (the one that comes with the prebuilt PC)
