changhong monoprice are very good. teksnydicate did some reviews on korean specific monitors so check that out. ur gpu definitely handle the games on that resolution with good fps on high settings. it comes down to are you willing to spend the money and do you plan on upgrading in a short time because monitors last longer than the components in the computer.

2006 most likely used ddr2 so if that's so no for the ram however the hard drives whould be fine but they will most likely be not large or very fast or reliable. if possible give us a list of all the components in it so we can more effectively give you recommendations.

for video rendering faster is better 2133 ddr3 has droped in price pretty significantly so if you can find a set of that that would be best however the "gaming benafits" is low 1866 is what i would say should be the standard now considering the cost from 1600 is nothing to pennies.

cost wise the cpu and ram are fine you would need a new psu if you were to get a new gpu i would recomend something like a 500-600w and 280x/285 however if you want to get crazy and go higher end a 290x thats on sale would be very reasonable

yes and no it is possible to copy a complete hard drive by cloning the drive with software like acronis or norton ghost but usualy the activation key is not transfered and is motherboard locked you may still need to copy your files manualy. they are also some other things that can go wrong, the regestry for each computer because the motherboard is different may not work

basicly yes however you do have some benafits with having higher clocks though. all the xeons in the same price range operate at 3.5ghz while the 4790 at 3.6ghz while being 30 bucks lower in cost and the k version at 4.0

you can use a xeon theres nothing wrong with that however if your really looking for a good multitasking cpu i would suggest the 4790 non k if you reall dont plan on overclocking

this motherboard doesnt require a psu but rather a power brick like a laptop uses. from all the documentation i read so far it doesnt say that you must use the 4 pin power. given this any power brick should work with any number of driver you have. if you were to go the psu route i suspect you would either have to find one without a 24pin or have to jump the 24 pin connector to get it to work. but if you are going to build a nas why not just have a mitx board instead of the embeded solution. you can get a very cheap pentium or celeron with a cheap posible free motherboard for black friday and cheap psu

if you can spend the extra bucks get the 970. its nice you did your performance percetages but what most people forget about is that the months that follow a gpu release show that drivers are as much as a performance gain as the new gen gives in general. what i am saying is that yes it might only be 30% better but give it another month or so and you might find new drivers that can squeez another 10% out of the card with new optmization coming out. one good example of this is the new MFAA that nvidia has released giving it as good or better performance than MSAA with a signifigant reduction in performance usage

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Memory speed compatibility"

  • 65 months ago

to teach you a bit intel has speeds that are stock"recomended" for the z87/97 this is 1600mhz. these speeds do not mean that you cant use higher speed memory it just means that anything higher than that is not guaranteed. for most it is as simple as enabling xmp(extreme memory profile) in the bios this setting automatically set the memory speeds to a predetermined overclocked setting. just as a side note some memory sticks may require higher voltage to operate at these higher speeds, intel recommends 1.5v for the z87/z97 boards but it is not uncommon for many manufactures to have their memory run at 1.65v

almost sounds like you might have a short. did you unscrew the motherboard or tighten any of the screws in tighter. i would go around your case and make sure there is nothing that is touching cables or parts that might be contacting the motherboard or other components like the graphics card that shouldnt

that could be true ive always gone in store so i have no comment on that. but for that price you can pay for faster shipping and still make out. if thats critically imprtant though i doubt it would take longer than a week to get to your house

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is MicroCenter warranty worth it?"

  • 65 months ago

it depends on what product you are buying. if you are buying from online and there isnt a store near you then no they will still tel you to send it into them, though the warranty does give you a direct replacement not a refurb or rebuild like some company will do. but if you do have a problem it will come down to time microcenter has a fast turn around. if you have a store you can go to then absolutely. i had an issue with a cpu/psu didnt know which but because i had warranty for both i when and swapped both anyways same day no issues. no down time
