Q: Anyone have a monitor to recommend?

I'm getting a new mac soon and want to keep cost down by not getting an apple monitor right off the bat. I love them don't get me wrong I want to get one in the future but need to keep the cost of the loan down as much as possible.

I would like to know if anyone has a quality monitor they recommend for a good price. It doesn't have to be flat screen although I would prefer one. I know of the formac monitors and I'm considering them but would like to see what you all think.

Thanks for the time.

Preferred Solution: Anyone have a monitor to recommend?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Anyone have a monitor to recommend?

Any monitor will work with the MAC... just need an adaptor cable (why do they bother?)

What size? 17" 19"

Go to sams, get a 19" CRT for $189 - flat tube. Add $30 adaptor.

Buy a LCD 17" for $400 - add $30 adaptor.

Samsung, NEC, Mitsubishi are quite good.

A:Recommend a monitor

Dell or Samsung would be my choice. The Dell prices are not bad but I can buy a 32 inch LCD 720p/1080p TV for that price.
My 32 inch Sony Bravia 720p was only $320 and HDMI hookup makes it a great laptop companion for movies or whatever.
Good luck.

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a good LCD monitor. The most important thing to me is that it should have the least effects on eyes, the god damn CRT really strains my eyes after using the pc for a few hours !

Also, surfing the net is more important to me than playing video games ( incase it makes any difference in choosing the right monitor for me ! )

My budget = maximum I can pay is 250 US $

So, which monitor do you guys recommend ?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:please recommend me an LCD monitor

Well, there's no certainty that the eyestrain is due to the CRT, just to get that out of the way right up front.

When looking for a particular item, I typically visit these sites regularly, usually at least once a day. A good deal on a brand name will come along shortly.

Hi guys!

I need to buy a 19" Square (4:3) LCD monitor with good response time. Which do you think I should go for.

Viewsonic VX922 with 2ms response time seems to be impressive and has good reviews on the net. How do you think it is or is there some other even better in the same price tag.

Please let me know the make and the model number of the same.

PS: I am not interested in Widescreen monitors.

I need a new monitor to go with my Radeon 5970. My current one, a Phililps 170S 17" has served me well, but it's too old for modern standards.

Here is what I want from my new monitor.

-As wide as possible
-Full HD support
-3D compatible, as far as I know that requires like 120Hz refresh rate
-As high contrast ratio as possible
-2ms response times
-Should be able to plug digital or HDTV cable into it
-LED or something similar
-Optional other extras like speakers and webcam and touch-screen are always welcome but I can live without them.
I am not sure if such a thing even exists. I have tried looking on eBay and I have seen all these features in different monitors but never in one place.

Basically, I need a modern mid-to-high end display to go with my high-end video card. I am quite lost.

A:What PSU would you recommend?

I don't think this is a PSU issue, you don't have many components and the GT 520 is a low power card (Nvidia's website recommends a 300W power supply).

Sounds like you probably downloaded a virus or something... you can try cleaning up your computer or reformatting.

I am planning a new build (already bought mobo, cpu, ram, and dvd drive), and I am looking for a nice PSU. I havent decided on a graphics card yet, but its likely that i will get either an 8800gt or an 9800gtx (they ususally want ~300-450W)

Anyways, most PSU's I have seen have around 8 molex cables. I dont need 8 molex cables, I dont even really need one (maybe certain case fans btw). My Hard Drive will be SATA, my DVD drive is SATA, so I dont want to waste space and drown in cables with extra molex's. I am looking for something at 600W (nice and safe, all hardware should be fine with this), and not to many molex connectors.

PC Diagnostic software? Something that looks for potential problems and can fix them but still giving the user control over what gets repaired?

I have used Norton WinDoctor for years but recently it repaired a registry entry and caused big time problems. I had to use System Restore to back up to the previous backup. Ever since I have been reluctant to let it clean much up with out eyeballing the change first. I have also used Norton CleanSweep for a long time but it will not always remove software that it says it does.

I recently tried PC BugDoctor. It finds a lot more errors than WinDoctor does but their licensing fee is quite high, so I've never bought it. And it does not say what it's going to repair so I have never had it try.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Both processors are dual core so they are about even, but I do like the E6600 better than the E6400 simply because it's faster and has twice the L2 cache.

I'd buy the E6600 and then plan to purchase a new video card and operating system. How much are you planning on spending on this computer because it's very possible to cobble together for you a computer that would meet or beat a combination of the best parts of the 7635 and the 7755 for usually just a little more money.

Nero isn't an archiving program, it's just a burner application. I have no idea what a lightning III is or what it pertains to in this situation. MusicMatch is used for cateloging and playing your MP3 music library and does a pretty good job of it. There are other applications like WinAmp and many..many others. As far as downloading, are you referring to the file sharing services like Kazaa and the now defunct Napster?

Hey guys, i got a tall order for you guys.

i was wondering if it would be advisable to have 2 AV's, 2 Anti Spyware/Malware, and 2 Fire walls? Recently i had a glitch in the system, some Backdoor virus is trying to get in.
Bitdefender is blocking it left and right so im safe. Am i over reacting? or should i amp up my security? So i considered running 2 of each.

heres what i considered

Main AV: Bitdefender 2nd AV: Either MSE, Avast or Avira

Main Anti spyware/malware: MalwareBytes 2nd Anti: Superantispyware or any other

Main Firewall: windows7 firewall control 2nd wall: pctools firewall or anyother

what do you guys think? i mostly use my puter for school, games, and im constantly downloading new software.

Check out my specs and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advanced.

A:Do You Recommend it?

While running 2 AV's is possible, it's definitely not advisable. There's nothing at all wrong with running a virus scan with more than one anti-virus program. Because it's just a scan - it starts, it scans, and then it's done. Real time monitoring, which is installed with most anti-virus programs is constantly running and scanning files downloaded to your machine. Running two or more real time anti-virus monitors at the same time is very likely to cause a conflict which could result in any number of error messages or failures. The most advisable thing to do would to be to find a good, reliable anti-virus program that you trust, and make sure it's always updated with the latest definitions.

Same for anti-spyware programs, as long as there isn't two real time monitoring engines trying to do the same thing at once, you should be fine.

The same goes for firewalls, however, I just wouldn't recommend running two software based firewalls at the same time because, as with AV programs, they monitor in real time, and two programs trying to do the same thing at once can and usually will cause problems. However, if you have a hardware based firewall, such as one built into a router, there would be no problem running a software and a hardware based firewall.

As for your case, if you believe BitDefender is doing it's job, I would leave it as your anti-virus, and use MalwareBytes and run a periodic scan to check for spyware, and either use the default Windows Firewall, or another 3rd party firewall and all should be fine. But remember, the best security is purely common sense while browsing

Computer: Sony Vaio Windows XP

Hi,
I am a student and I need to have a software that lets me type essays, use MLA format and type out and print all kinds of documents for school. The software also has to have the capability to save my work on a floppy disk(diskette). My teachers recommend Corel WordPerfect 7.0 and Microsoft Word, but I'm not sure about which software would be better for my needs. If anybody has used these softwares, which one do you recommend or is there any other type of software that would work? Lastly, what are simple steps to saving typed documents onto floppy disks?
Thanks

Some reliable good RAM, preferably 2 x 4GB ram under $100, which I would use for somewhat intensive gaming.
 

A:Can anyone recommend RAM?

What's your CPU? This will determine if you need fast RAM or not, but in any case you should be able to get 8GB for well under $100.

If you mean a VPN to your work network, then your work should have a VPN server and client already.

Hi, i'm looking to buy a new CPU but not sure which one would be best for my computer I currently have an AMD Anthlon(tm) XP 1800+ 1533 MHz. I use my computer for graphic and web design work mainly, so I use adobe packages quite alot, I also like to create music using programs such as cubase.

My mainboard is a SOLTEK 75FRV and OS is Windows XP service pack 3.

I hope that info helps, i'm pretty clueless on what would be the best CPU for my needs!

Thanks anyone!
 

A:Can someone recommend a CPU

From the MB and CPU specs, I would assume the PC is at least 5 years old?

It is possible to upgrade the CPU a bit, but finding Athlon XP CPUs is getting fairly difficult and expensive. Also, upgrading any other part in such an old system would be a waste of money since you won't be able to reuse it in a future system later on.

Your money would be better used if you saved a bit for a completely new PC with up to date parts. There are plenty of fairly decent PCs on the market these days for under $500 which would perform many times better.

7 Port USB 2.0 480Mps Hi-Speed HUB Laptop Notebook NEW on eBay (end time 27-Nov-09 20:29:35 GMT)

it states ''USB 2.0'' all over it, but it does not come with an additional power adapter...this means whenever you plug in more than 2 devices, the USB block defaults all connections to ''USB 1.0''
so, if your buying a 4 port hub you should be ok, if buying a hub with more connections make sure it comes with an adaptor..

Actually i don't have a lot of money so to be in the likes of max 100 $.
I was pretty happy with my CPU(Athlon 5000+) for gaming so i need something in that region.But also i have one more question if i buy "AMD Phenom II X4 940", will i be in need to change Motherboard, RAM, or GPU(Nvidia GeForce 9800GT), in other words is there gonna be a bottleneck effect ?
Thanks in advance.
PS:Sorry if my English is bad, it's not my native one
 

A:What CPU will u recommend ?

What do you mean your CPU is almost dead? CPU's don't fail fairly often and there's usually no "almost dead" state for them.

Albatron tech support is pathetic at best, but you need to check with them which processors are supported and i you need a BIOS update to run those processors. Normally this is posted clearly on the manufacturer's website but these guys don't seem to work in the same manner.

A:What UPS would you recommend for my PC?

I would look for one that would run your system for about 10 minutes to give you time to close out any files that you have open and gracefully shut down in case of a power outage. Just don't put your laserjet printer on the same line. Your monitor and computer should be all that is necessary.
APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V should be more than sufficient. Many are cheaper but you gets what you pay for. Some of the cheaper ones are nothing but a surge supressor.

As per title, I've been using ASUS motherboards for last 11 years and I must say they are worth every penny. First one was P4P800-Deluxe which lasted from 2001 to 2007 and second one is P5E3 which I'm using since 2007 till now.

I guess its time to jump on bandwagon and upgrade my system. I'm again very much leaning towards getting ASUS again, i.e. P8P67

I was wondering if I should try some other brands like Gigabyte or MSI. I know ASrock is sister company of ASUS so its like getting same motherboard for less money. What will you my fellow PC geeks will advise to go for?

I almost forgot to mention, I'll be getting Core i7 2600k very soon so motherboard has to be 1155 socket.

A:Recommend me new MB

All you can expect to hear is someone's personal experience with a brand, such as you just stated yourself for Asus. "I've owned leventy-leven brand X motherboards and never had a problem".

You can then go immediately to Google and find all kinds of horror stories about that particular brand.

Anecdotes are just that and mean little since the horror stories encompass all brands and you will play hell finding any authoritative evidence--just as it is for hard drives.

I've owned Intel, Dell, Gigabyte, and several Asus motherboards. The only one that ever failed was an Asus.

Signifying nothing. It's just another anecdote.

Look for the features you need and buy from a dealer you trust.

Make some wild-ass guesses and questionable assumptions about supposed build quality and quality control.

Hope it doesn't break.

Hope even harder that you never need to deal with customer support.

Planning on making a less powerful computer for a friend of mines mom. The mobod is the ASUS M2N-E Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX AMD along with the x2 4600 brisbane. What memory would you suggest to work the best with NO overclocking at all. Would the 800 be best?
 

A:What memory do you recommend?

That board can take DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-4200, DDR2-8500 with a maximum of 2 GB.

The only decisions to make are ECC vs non-ECC You don't need ECC.
Whatever you get, make sure all modules are alike, and do not use any memory that as Value in the description, as it is slower.
The entire memory package will run at the rate of the slowest module.
Based on your description, I would get the DDR2 PC6400 in two 1 GB modules.. but you would be fine with the any, as long as they are identical.

Just starting to get into gaming, and have a new PC setup, with a 6-core AMD cpu and 32gb RAM, but with an ATI 3000 series card, so I know it's not the best video card out there (can't afford the good ones yet).

Would like to know what games you recommend that will work with this video card (low end). I have Assassin's Creed 3, but the video is choppy, and even some older games like Broken Sword 4 have video problems as well. Skyrim seems to be OK if I set the resolution down to medium or low.
 

A:Recommend games?

It would help if we knew the exact number of the card, not just "3000 series", but really, any game made in 2006 or earlier should run on it, many games at max. Battlefield 2, Battlefront 2, Company of Heroes, Command and Conquer: Generals (and it's expansion, Zero Hour). The Call of Duty franchise has undergone essentially no graphical improvement over the past five years, and as such has very low graphical requirements. Although they won't run on max detail, your graphics card should be able to handle all Call of Duty titles. If you turn it down to minimum graphics, you should be able to play the Mass Effect franchise and the Dragon Age franchise, as well as more recent Command and Conquer games like Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3. If Skyrim works, then rest of the Elder Scrolls series is obviously open. The vast majority of indie games, many of which you can find on Steam, have very small graphical requirements. Any MOBA game will work, most if not any MMORPG will work. Despite having an outdated graphics card, you still have a large variety of options open to you so long as you're prepared to turn down the graphics settings. Games I certainly would not try without upgrading your graphics card include Battlefield 3 and Crysis (amongst other resource-intensive games).

I currently have a ASRock P4S55FX2 and have done for a year now, has already blew up, so had to send back to be replaced, now the computer is acting in the same way, so have a feeling this is going to happen again so have decided to splash out on a new one to actually work and not freeze my computer from time to time, anyone any recommendations?

Thanks
 

A:Recommend Me a New Motherboard....

First recommendation, DONT buy SIS chipsets, as for recommending another mobo, stick with Intel based chipsets by Asus or Abit.

So, it's starting to look like subscribing to a VPN service is definitely in the cards for me....

I've done some research and IpVanish comes highly recommended/reviewed and only runs me $6.49 a month.

Should I just go ahead and subscribe to this one or would those with more experience care to share some recommendations?

I have ordered all my components except for the case. I was thinking of ordering either of these:

My maximum budget is around £50.

Requirements:

- Good/sleek looking
- Has to accomodate ATX motherboard and an nVidia GeForce GTX 460
- Around or under budget

Please give your comments and recommendations

I am trying to burn a 122 minute movie on DVDs (R+DL). I have Roxio Easy CD & DVD (no good) and Nero 9 (not much better). The sw tends to cause my discs to spit out as "not blank" and I can't burn anything. GRRRRR!

There HAS to be a better solution!!!

Can anyone recommend a SW package for burning DL discs?
 

A:DVD DL discs: What SW would you recommend?

Forget Roxio Easy Cd... consider Nero 7.0 first, Nero 6.6 second, and Nero 8 third...

There are plenty of other brands and models.

A:Which browser do you recommend?

Hmm, if you want a good out of the box browser(without the addons and stuff), I recommend Google chrome since it's the fastest that can render javascript. If you want to customize your browser to your needs, hands down to firefox.

Hi,

My Uncle recently purchased a new iPad (3rd one). He was asking me how he can get WiFi at his home and I told him that all he needs is a wireless router.

In my home, I personally use a Linksys WRT54GH for wireless connectivity.

Anybody have experience on what's a nice router I can recommend for him? I'll be personally setting that up as well.

Thanks to anyone who can help

So, there are 100's of webcams out there, and all seem to generally have the same spec's. But the thing that varies is price, and I'm sure some webcams are somehow better than others.

What I want is:

-Atleast 1.3MP
-I need it to be able to clip on to my Dell Latitude D630
-Reasonable price. For instance, i'm not spending $100+ on a webcam. But i'm willing to pay more than $20, but if it does cost $20, that is fine too.

Site's i've checked out:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_e?url=search-alias=electronics&field-keywords=webcam&x=0&y=0
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2000290152 1080819510

Thanks
 

A:Recommend me a webcam!

I have the QuickCam Pro and the Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000. Both will mount onto your laptop. The QuickCam rests on top and the NX-6000 clips on. Both are compatible with just about everything. The NX-6000 is smaller and has better quality.

Your choice. A word of warning: Get either a Logitech or a Microsoft camera. Both are compatible with everything. I can't say that about any other brand.

Hi thinwhiteduk,

Youíve been hijacked by CoolWebSearch. Please go here and download, unzip then run CoolWebShredder.

CWS installs via the byte verifier exploit in M$ JavaVM so just surfing a page with an infected applet can install it with no user participation. So once youíve run the above, it is vital that you go here, click Scan for updates in the main frame, and download and install all CRITICAL updates recommended.

Then go here and download and run RapidBlaster Killer. (Downlaod at the bottom of the page).

Then, once youíve done that, please post a new log, and we'll see what's left.

Cheers

Make sure you get one that is compatible with VSS if you use System Restore.

I have a D-Link EBR-2310 that did not play well with Vista and does not play well with Win7 either. Constant loss of browser connection but other connections remain working and just plain unreliable in all aspects. I need a wired router and we only have at most 4 PC's connected at a time and this is basically for sharing the web connection I have so no file sharing. I have paid under $50 for the last 2 I have had and they do not cut it and both have been D-link so I want to get away from D-link and would be willing to pay up to $100 for something that actually works.

I have finally ran down my problem and the router is the issue!

Edit: Have tried Linksys a few years back with Win XP and had same issue so I want to get away from both Linksys and D-Link.
