    Well, there are plenty of such laptops around, but the question is how much you can afford to pay. And also what your general priorities are for general aspects of the laptop, such as the size and...

    Well that's strange. You could try installing older driver versions for the sound card (or perhaps even the graphics cards), or maybe try switching to HTML5 video on Youtube instead of Flash. It's...

    The Core i5-4460 crushes the FX-6300. Overclocking the 6300 might make it less embarrassing, but the 4460 is still just plain better.

    Here are some benchmarks comparing the FX-6300 with the 4670K....

    AMD is worthy of consideration too. Typically a little more performance for the money, but it varies over time. As I mentioned before, AMD is about to drop their next series of graphics cards, which...

    Actually that's only the OEM 300 series. Their upcoming series of retail GPUs is still largely unknown, so there may or may not be rebadges in there. All we know is there's Fiji and HBM at the top.

    As an AMD user who's dabbled in Linux... I would pick Nvidia. They shit all over the open source ideals of Linux, but their actual drivers just work better than what AMD offers.

    The CPU, memory and motherboard are fine, especially if you overclock the CPU. What you could really benefit from are a GPU upgrade and an SSD. The SSD could be any standard SATA drive, maybe a 240GB...

    Microsoft never really catered to the old-school PC gamer that well anyway. I'd rather they throw Candy Crush at me than GFWL. At least I can ignore Candy Crush, GFWL actually infected games I was...

    It does fit in well in the Windows lineage of casual games. Plus it ticks a HUGE box for shareholders, where mobile is what makes their panties wet (like MMOs a few years back).

    There are a handful of games where SLI and Crossfire don't work (or might as well not work), but those are definitely the exception rather than the rule. Most of the time, the 295X2 and 690 will be...

    You often have to push or pull a little latch at the front end of the slot before you can pull the card out. Like the second picture on this page from a PC building guide.

    That benchmark site is quite bad. Note how the R9 290X finishes just ahead of the far more powerful R9 295X2, and the GTX 670 likewise ahead of the GTX 690.

    I'd suggest the Anandtech GPU bench.

    The GTX 970 and R9 290X are equally good overall, the 290X pulling ahead at higher resolutions.

    The GTX 980 is overpriced, and the R9 290X 8GB version is also overpriced. You should look at three...

    Eh, not really. The MX200 is the same exact hardware as the MX100, simply with SLC caching enabled. The BX100 uses a completely different controller.

    It's not. It's a solid SSD.


    The MX100 is not out of date, the BX100 is a slightly slower version of the MX100 while there's now an MX200 that is slightly faster. Depending on the pricing, the...

    The Crucial MX100 is a better choice than the Samsung 840 Evo. It's faster, twice the capacity for only a little more money, and does not suffer from the 840 Evo bug that Samsung is attempting to...

    It's a value for money list, that's why. They pick the Sandisk Extreme Pro over the Samsung 850 Pro because it's cheaper with comparable performance.

    Only the second one posted any links, so I think it's just coincidence. Maybe spurred by the forum's post limits intended to curb spambots.

    The Nvidia equivalent to the R9 280X is the GTX 770, which is being phased out. You may or may not be able to find that at a reasonable price. The GTX 960 is a newer, somewhat slower card.
