I haven't had the need for the latter since Windows XP and starting to use NTFS. That was up until Windows 10. In 10, the start menu basically doesn't work at all if you disable indexing, meaning...

Iris and Iris Pro (w/eDRAM) are both more powerful than anything AMD has for integrated GPUs. It's just that Intel only puts it in a few high-end, expensive and rare CPUs. Also Skylake's HD 530,...

Hard drives are fairly resistant to damage if they're off and parked, provided they're not struck with any objects directly. However if you want to remove them and ship/carry them that way, what you...

What is this GTX 750 "2.0" business? Are they actually going to call it that? :confused: Shouldn't they just call it a GTX 940 or something?

This thing seems neat but really it's not much different in price than buying similar components and then a 34" curved monitor. Obviously a huge chunk of the cost is in the monitor. This of course...

In a nutshell, copy protection.



Well there's a whole other thread on that here, and there's no definite answer yet. Will new drives be needed? Will UHD even be allowed on PC? Questions that...

Ouch yeah that's gotta suck if you paid like $700+ for a GPU and it can't do what you though it could :( Hopefully if UHD-BD ever comes to PC* (and if you want to play it on PC), by that time HDCP...

A 7750 and a 550 Ti are essentially equal in GPU performance. You've basically got two cards there that perform the same but are from different manufacturers. Unless there's a driver quirk with one...

LOL 1x1, jokes. Keep in mind that when you select 800x600, your AVR more than likely does no accept such a resolution. What happens is your GPU puts that inside an output resolution (a "wrapper" if...

The 6450 is newer and faster. The GPU has about 2x the compute power but though it has twice the shaders, IIRC, it only has about 20% actual performance increase in stuff like gaming. However this...
