Hello TS! I have come here today because I am looking for feedback on a budget build for my friend. His price range is preferably $600-700 but he can go as high as $800ish. This is what I have put together so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9R7gcf
I originally went with a 250GB SSD and 8GB of RAM but he thought it was too little (I was thinking external HDD+250GB). Also what is the consensus here about an i3 versus the 860K? I am thinking the quad core is better over the dual core. Also, should the cost savings from the above questions be translated to a better GPU? Finally, I read online that a 450W PSU wasn't gonna cut it so I upped it to a 750W (same price as 650W after rebate)?
Thanks for the help in advance!
He will be primarily playing DOTA 2 (eSports) and CS:GO (leisure).
Edit/Note: I will also be posting this on Tom's Hardware to get as many opinions as possible, so don't be offended D) if you see it on there!
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.)
First I have built a nice system using that board; it was great to work with. Newegg.com has this motherboard and that cpu as a special combo for $133.00.
Second, if that is all he is doing with his system that AMD cpu will do him just fine. i3 is an Intel cpu and when using Intel the unwritten rule is that the i5 quad core is the sweet spot for gaming. But, again, that AMD is quite fine.
Why 16 gigs of RAM? If he was doing video rendering or using intense graphic software I could see it but 8 gigs is very good for gaming. Save money and get only 8 gigs.
Corsair makes great power supplies; good choice.
I really don't know that gpu but from the specs and for what he is doing, again, it will do everything he needs.
I don't know that case. With that motherboard I used the Cooler Master HAF 912. Good room, well built, and plenty of air flow especially with an AMD because they can run hot. You may want to get some extra case fans. Also, perhaps an aftermarket cooler.

I'm new to computer building and I have made a list for all the components I will need to build my computer. My budget for this first computer build is 400-450 USD. I have all the necessary peripherals so I can use all of this budget for building the computer. I am focusing this PC as a budget gaming PC. Some games that I would like to be able to run on this computer with normal to high settings are COD4, Fifa 15, MW2 and some GTA V.
I would like it if you could please give me feedback on the compatibility of these components and just some advice on what I could improve.
Here is the link to all the components on the website pcpartpicker:
Thanks for the help!
Hi and welcome to TSG.
A few thoughts, comments and considerations
1) Personally I would look at a minimum size of Midi Tower for the case. A gaming machine of any type with a dedicated card ideally needs better cooling, this can be difficult in small cases as everything is so cramped together.
2) I would up the PSU a bit to a better quality unit. You really don't want to be cutting costs on this part as it is a core component. Look for a good quality PSU from a reputable manufacturer, some examples are Corsair (HX, AX and RM models only), Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling or OCZ (there are others). Look for units with a minimum of 5 years warranty. Personally, I would look at a 600 - 650w model, this gives you a good bit of headroom on power and the less you work the PSU the longer it will last and it will be less likely to cause issues.
3) I would prefer WD Black of WD Blue hard drives, the blue are the budget range (I appreciate you are on a budget ). Black are generally much better units.
4) For the GPU, if you are going NVidia then the 2nd two numbers are the important ones when it comes to performance. You have chose an 7 series card model 50 (750 Ti). For a gaming right I would recommend going for at least a 60 model number (eg GTX760) if you can afford it. As a rough guide, have a look at www.hwcompare.com this will give you a comparison of different GPU specs. If you compare the 750Ti and 760, the 760 has more than double the performance in all areas, but it does have a higher power demand. A good quality 650w PSU should suffice.

What is your budget?
I have assembled the following hardware to build my first gaming rig and would like to know if this is a good choice of items.
XFX Radeon R7770 1GB DDR5
Thermaltake Black Widow TR2 RX 850W 80 plus Bronze Cert.
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad Core
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H-MVP mATX LGA 1155
Corsair Vengeance 4GB (2x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200 RPM
(plan on adding a 120 or 240 GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD later)
Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower
Asus BC-12B1ST-BLK/B/AS Blue-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer
Thanks in Advance for your feed back!
A few suggestions
I think you should go with an ATX sized motherboard, the case that you have has more than enough room for one, and the extra expansion slots might come in handy one day. The Asrock extreme 4 is a good choice.
You definitely don't need a 850W PSU, a 650W will supply more than enough juice to run your rig, and will leave plenty of room to install a second graphics card if needed. The other advantage is that you can get a better quality one for the same price, such as this one.
If your budget allows it, you may want to consider upgrading your graphics card. Something like HD 7850 will give you bucket-loads more performance, and make the build more gaming oriented. If your strapped for cash, you could always downgrade your HDD and purchase more storage later if needed.
Hidy ho all,
I'm trying to figure out what to do with my tax return monies. And I'm leaning more towards building a new gaming PC then anything else.
So, I put together a parts list and could use some feedback on it. There are reasons for everything on this list, mostly budgetary, some preferential.
Anywho, if you have the time, could you take a look and tell me what you think?
I m currently getting ready to build a new system but this is only the second time i will of built one and I m looking to get as much feedback from people who have had more experience than me Asus P Q PRO Intel Core Quad Q GHz MHz MB Cache GB x GB MB Palit HD PCI-E x x Vista Home Prem Sp -bit OEM I have HDD CD DVD RW Monitor but i may get a new one Case build, and help Feedback, PSU New and run and a case from my previous build but I am going to need a new PSU and I m a bit uncertain about what wattage to go for from what i do know i think i need a PSU thats about - W but i was hoping someone who understands this better could give me a more accurate picture My case was a Gigabyte New build, Feedback, PSU and Case help d aurora and while this is a very fine case the positioning of the HDD bays obstructed the intake fan at the front and the whole cooling was made very poor I ended up New build, Feedback, PSU and Case help running the Pc with the side pannel off which of course ment it was very noisy Could anyone recomend a new case that would offer adequate cooling without being too noisy and of course is still of good quality I quite like the look of the Coolermaster Cosmos cases but im not sure which if either would be best Maybe you can tell that i like the big cases far easier to work in and are a good size for where i keep them nbsp

Your build is fine. I very much doubt the OS and programs take up 775GB - it's more likely to be all the sound and data files that take up the space. Most folks get a 250GB SSD and a hard disk. You put the OS and the programs on the SSD and store files on the hard disk. You have the option of setting up SRT Caching which will keep often used files on the SSD automatically. If sound levels are important then you can also get low noise PSU and CPU fans. There are also so things as low noise PC cases. 1866 speed RAM is the current best choice for Haswell CPU's. A wide screw monitor ie 24" is usually nice for this type of work as you can have multiple (usable) windows open at the same time on screen.http://www.pchelpforum.com/computer-diy/124826-final-build-feedback.html
I would like to know what people think of the X64 bit build 7000 on this site?
I personally have not installed it just yet, but at this current moment, I'm downloading it with 37% complete.
Startup and Shutdown times/issues?
Playing small and large audio/video files?
I was impressed with build 6801 X64, and build 7000 X32bit, but from what I read build 7000 X64 is just amazing.
Your feedback please, and thank you to everybody who contributed to this wonderful site....very grateful!
I've been running it for 2 days now and I really couldn't fault it, seems lots faster than my Vista x64 install and I haven't had any stability or compatibility issues either.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/1525-your-feedback-windows-7-x64-build-7000-a.html

I'm building an upgradeable pc for my 3 yr old. I need to be able to watch video as well as simple tasks. Does anyone have any feedback on the Biostar H61 MLC? If not, can anyone recommend a decent motherboard/cpu bundle for me?
Biostar isn't one of the better manufacturer's. Gigabyte, Asus, Intel would be my top suggestions.
Here's a similar Gigabyte board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128527
And here's an Intel i3-2100 to go with it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115078
Do you have any additional requirements? Will there by any games that will need to be played on it?
I am building my first PC, and have chosen these parts:
Power Supply: Corsair CX750 ATX 80+
Mobo: MSI ATX DDR3 2133 970
CPU: AMD FX 4350
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2 x 4gb) DDR3 1600 MHz PC3 12800 240-Pin DDR3 Dual Channel
Video Card: MSI GTX 960 Gaming 4G
Hard Drive: WD Black 500GB SATA 6 Gb/s, 7200 RPM, 64MB Cache
Optical Drive: Asus 24x DVD-RW Serial-ATA Internal OEM
So are these parts good, compatible, and somthing I would want for a gaming PC?
As far as a case goes, I have a budget of $50 for this. I want something with decent ventilation, and a design thats not just a big block. So like somthing with some angles or somthing. If it has a window or glow that would be even better.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
Also, will I need to buy anything else for the computer aside from these parts? Like cables or anything? I intend to run 4 monitors on this computer.

Im not sure if your graphics card link is working, but at the moment I would say go with a Corsair branded power supply.
Maybe perhaps a newer board like the 750i, but the 680 is a great board, so you don't really have to.
Will a 250 gb HDD be enough?
I think you may wan't nice speakers and a sound card with it.

So apparently my friend actually got off his butt and got a job, so he's going to build a new PC for himself.
He of course doesn't know much about hardware compatibility and the like, so I as always want a second opinion on my proposed part list.
We'll be re-using the following parts from the old build:
1) CD-ROM / DVD-ROM (IDE)
2) Hard Disk Drive (IDE)
3) Video card [possibly] (PCI Nvidia 8400)
We will be using the following new parts:
So, any suggestions, comments?

Guess you're good to go as long as you have an OS and some power protection.

The 9600GSO is not a good option. I understand that there is a budget constraint but maybe you could think of a better one. At least the HD4850. However, Oblivion should run fine enough on the system.
If it wasn't because of getting a new monitor, you'd have a nice setup for about 500-550$.

What exactly are you asking? Step by step? I can walk you through it over msn.http://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/71025-helping-friend-build-pc.html
Here is what he told me.
I have built this nice rig,
1 gig pc3200
80 gig SATA
ABIT KN8-SLI MOBO
Now, my problem is that when I try to start up the BIOS it just stops at a menu showing my CPU model, my amount of RAM and the IDE Master/Slave drives.
It also displays a error message, saying "CMOS cheksum error - defaults loaded"
Then it tells me to press F1 to continue but when I do nothing happens. What to do?
I have cleared the CMOS before starting it, by changing the jumper with the power cord not inserted.
Check that the Clear CMOS jumper is in the right position and not in the Clear CMOS position.

Well I was gonna suggest a 7850 for playing BF3 but looking at the prices on that website it seems to be almost twice as expensive as the 7770. In the UK the 2GB 7850 is only about 40-50% more than the 1GB 7770, and the gap shrinks with the 1GB 7850. Some weird pricing going on...
That's a great build for the price, only suggestion I would make is that your friend can download the Windows 8 Release Preview and then upgrade for US$40 when it comes out.
I have a friend that I am going to build a PC for that uses AutoCad and her daugther does some video-editing.
I was thinking of going with an AMD dual core--the rest of course will fall into line after choosing the best processor. I want an Asus MOBO to go with the processor, and appropriate video card--the rest is pretty much preference.
Will the Dual Core be better than a faster single core processor for AutoCad? I know it will for the video editing.

theres an update
Reset BIOS to default which is Floppy,HDD,CDROM. If I try to change the boot order to CDROM first, all entries change to "not installed" I can set HDD to first boot but I cannot set floppy or CD to boot sequence. It is like I have no other drives installed I have to default BIOS again to re-set boot order to the above factory settings of Floppy.HDD then CDROM.
Did not try another IDE cable. Dont have an extra one and this is not my PC. I am working on it for a friend.
Really frustrating not being able to boot from CDROM. Cannot do a fresh install of XP or even boot a CD of Linux Ubuntu or Mandriva. Have only been able to install Windows 98se which only uses FAT32 and will only recognize 8GB of my HDD space If I try to install 2000 or XP it will not allow me to delete that partition and install 2000 or XP onto the 8GB partition leaving the rest of the HDD unused. If I could boot from CDROM I should be able to format and partition entire HDD to NTFS. Then I could continue the install and all would be fine.
Note: I have NEVER had this much problem before and I have installed 98se,2000, XP , Vista,and several Linux distros on quite a few systems in the past.
Any other workarounds or suggestions?
Thanks for all your help

Well here's the current situation, a buddy told me to arm him an inexpensive and modest pc, so I choose this components I hope you guys can tell me what to fix. He doesn't want to run the newest games with higher resolution and things like that just some old games like AoM and maybe some ol' fps games like wolfenstein, just to get a picture.
AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 2.0GHz, Cache 512KB L2
Kingston DDR DIMM PC3200 (400Mhz), 512MB
Hard Drive Western Digital of 120GB at 7200RPM
Video card MSI nVidia GeForce FX 5200 with 128MB DDR, AGP 8x TV-out
Mother board would be any nice one that support everything, dvd burner, floppy etc etc. Will probably tell him to add more ram whenever possible.
We are really on a budget so please don't suggest expensive stuff, thanks in advance guys.
BTW, not sure if this is the correct forum section, please redirect if needed.
Can I give feedback to Microsoft about Windows 7?
And what kind of information send Windows 7 to Microsoft? Can I see them.
Yes, you sure can send feedback to Microsoft. It will give you a report towards the end to see what is being sent to Microsoft. It is nothing to worry about though.
Hope this helps,
Hi I just got through reading this article and I would like some feed back on it ... should the fix be downloaded and installed or do we in USA have nothing to worry about ...
Thanks in advance ...
Warning on stealthy Windows virus
Once installed the virus, dubbed Mebroot by Symantec, usually downloads other malicious programs, such as keyloggers, to do the work of stealing confidential information.
I'm sure most of you know that support for the free AVG7 ends in January. Just curious as to any negatives experienced with the new 7.5 version from people that might be using it now.(Moderator edit: moved thread to more appropriate forum. jgweed)
I've updated several systems with it - and know of quite a few folks who've also done it. All without problems.
Make sure to follow the directions and install it as a "Repair" - everything should work fine after that!

Thank you for your patience. I will be helping you deal with the issues raised in your log from this point onwards
Before we start jumping into things, here is a quick basic note which I mention to everyone. The fix which I have provided for you is for this computer only, it should not be used on any other computer. Each fix is tailor made for the specific task in hand. If for some reason you have system restore disabled, then please re-enable it before proceeding, an infected restore is better than none. Please read through the fix first and set enough time aside to complete the task in one session. If there is anything you feel needs clarification then please ask - do not guess! Thanks.
If this is a computer from a work place then please advise your IT department of the concerning issues before commencing past this point.
Please follow these directions in the order they are set out for you.
I do not see any anti virus detection software present on your computer.
Without a resident virus checker you are leaving yourself wide open to infection, this in turn would render the fix useless. Before proceeding further, please download, install and update an anti virus solution. A good free anti virus software to start with is AntiVir? or as an alternative try AVG Free Edition
I do not see any signs of a firewall present in your log
The windows firewall only blocks traffic in one direction and will not prevent nasties on your computer phoning home. If you do not have any other firewall installed I suggest that you try one of the free firewall option that are available to help secure your computer. Zonealarm Free is an great firewall to start out with. For more information on firewalls read this article here about Understanding and Using firewalls
Once you have both of these items installed, update your anti virus definitions and run a full system scan.
Once you have completed the above....
Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt in your thread in the HijackThis Log Help Forum.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and
copy and paste the following into the "Upload File from your Computer" box:C:\Deckard\System Scanner\extra.txt
What DSS will do: create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review. DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.
Couldn't believe it when we went online the first time with our brand new laptop (first factory computer for us since the used IBM AT in 1983), got bumped offline and just plain off the computer with an RPC message.
Thanks to TSG forum for getting me past the factory blues. I know where to hang out, now.
Its deffinitly a learning experience..
Please look at attached reports and help me figure out what is causing my issues.
x64 - Home Premium
- the original installed OS on the system? Windows 7
- an OEM or full retail version? Retail - System builder
- What is the age of system (hardware)? - 4 weeks
- What is the age of OS installation? 4 weeks
My profile should have the rest of my system information. I have tried debugging myself, but couldn't make heads or tails of the problem.
I am also getting an application hand when playing World of Warcraft. I am not sure if the report will show those events from the event viewer log, but if so any help with that would be great also.
Thanks for any help!
I have checked at least 75% of your many dmp. They all show the same code 1A caused by ntkrnlmp. This is a driver that controls other drivers. We do not replace ntrnlmp as this is a Microsoft driver and rarely the true cause of the problem
STOP 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENTUsual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel
This memory management error is usually hardware related. See the checklist above. If this occurs while installing Windows, also check the Windows system requirements including the amount of RAM and disk space required to load the operating system.
Download memtest86 and test RAM

Scan with your Anti Virus
Update outdated listed drivers. If I have inadvertently listed any Microsoft Drivers, they can be ignored.
How to Find Drivers
search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone - will help you search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- - if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads
To remove any left over driver remnants, especially from graphics cards, use driver sweeper http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/
After performing all of the above, post back with any new BSOD reports, or indicate that the attempted repairs were successful.
If any links do not work, if clicked, please copy and paste to browser address bar.
Remember that several attempts may be required before we can solve your BSOD problem. These reports are not definitive but merely point the way to a solution.

yeah i think it is going to work, i know a little more bout amd cpu's based platforms, there is a point on memory: in case 333 is free it's good, but in the future adding 400 will require throwing 333 away because 333 will cause 400 work like 333

I have a problem with my sound card to where, whenever I hit the talk button, to talk on a microphone, any and all background is played through it as well, such as with games with built in mic buttons such as Counter-strike or WoW, whenever i hit the talk button any noise that i can hear from my headset is played through as well, such as what music I'm listening to, I'm not using speakers so that is not the problem, does anyone have any solutions to this problem? my sound card is Realtek HD audio, Dont know any other information about it... This problem is mostly annoying due to the fact if I have music or or anything loud it makes my voice un-hear able through the mic...

May seem silly but I cannot get my web cam to work properly...
Went into all kinds of setup stuff to adjust volumes but still getting bad feedback with major echo. Tried lowering the volume through master control but didn't help. Also went in through the control panel to adjust but the voloume bar is inactive...won't let me change mic volume?? What can I do?? Is it my web cam, maybe my speakers?? Tried putting the cam farther away but still no improvement. Think I need to lower mic volume but it won't let me...Please help!

Take a look into your Sounds and multimedia options under Control Panel to see if the Mixing check box is checked. This is the most common problem. You'll just have to check the Microphone box. (within record settings, not playback)..
I upgraded from 6100mcp mobo (GA-K8N51GMF-9)
NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra / SLI GA-K8NF9 Ultra(Rev 2.x)
new one has something called SLI chip set (but only 1 16x slot and 2 1x slots)
what is the difference between these 2 mobos ?
the SLI chipset means that the second board you mentioned has the ability to support 2 nvidia graphics cards

PCIe is the future but right now there is very little performance difference between the two . If there is no price difference I would go PCIe just because it will be easier to upgrade two years from now plus yoiu'll have the PCIex1 expansion slot.
Basically I'm making some let's play YT vids and I have a Roccat Kave 5.1 SS headset. I get annoying feedback when I speak through the mic.
I used to use the same mic as Tobuscus the Yt'er but still I got feedback.
I'll list what I've already tried..
- Turning the Decibels (Making mic recording output louder but creates unnecessary feedback)
- Recording externally in a different software like Audacity and trying to turn it up (Annoying feedback because of decibels)
- Checked for driver updates etc.
-Same difference in both stereo/5.1 headsets.
My volume is loud enough-ish but it's just the feedback.. Watch this vid and you'll see:
EDIT: And on my sound mixer my headphones are controlled by the overall speakers. Even when I turn the sound down via my head set the sound on the system follows which shouldn't happen.
Great operating system, installation time around 90mins. Seemed alongtime this was an upgrade from vista 64 home premium. I suspect the delay was caused from issues with vista, as it was running slow prior to upgrade.
ATI drive fails occasionally but restarts ( 9:10 )
Pc Probe error message can't load.
Un-install list will not remove dead links, have to remove via registry.
on the whole, well done microsoft another quality product.
If your vista setup was having problems before, Id suggest doing a clean install.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/34378-windows-7-feedback.html

I doubt they will sell you a PC without a power supply. How would they be able to warrant it when they don't know the condition of the power supply to be used?
If you used their website configurator, I don't think it will let you add incompatible hardware.

Well, all's well and dandy, but when I click the "Submit" button, it get page not found. I tried adding a URL to the submit button properties but to no avail. My question:
How can I create the form so that when they finish filling in the form and they click submit, it will be emailed to me?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I've got my domain name and hosting set up, so all thats left is the website now
Here is the layout I've got so far
I am looking for feedback but also have a couple questions.
1. Look at the menu on the top. Now look at the right border of it. See the glitch? Any idea whats causing that? It looks a bit odd with that border missing.
2. The links in the menu are also probably hard to read because the color is close to the background. Any ideas on a different color for the links? And what color the background should change to when you hover them?
Thx in advance!
And please don't complain about the repetitive content

What specific problem are you having?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/33662/can-i-recieve-some-feedback/
Hi I recently got a set of speakers for my new PC. I have only been using headphones on it without a problem but when I plugged the speakers in I get a very bad white noise feedback.
You can still hear the sound so the speakers are working, and when plugged into my phone they work fine whithout the feedback. I am also using beats headphones so I am using the exact same jack to connect the speakers and headphones.
I've tried all solutions I can find and all drivers are up to date, so if anyone has any ideas of what is going wrong I'd be really thankful.
I got to be an Office TPer and right consider How user does much MS feedback? after they launched it I sent How much does MS consider user feedback? MS feedback about some stuff Also added - quot I know no one there is going to read this but here's my feedback quot Not only did I get an email from someone at MS who said quot Yes we actually read the feedback quot I think they implemented one of my suggestions Could not freaking believe it The new feature was for OneNote to be able to right click and paste more than just text like photos and other files which you could not do in Before I get carried away with this let me say that hypothetical influencing a right-click for anything isn't the grandest thing on the planet Nevertheless it would be kinda cool to be able to say such a thing when you're dealing with a behemoth like MS I assume I could not have been the only TPer who suggested this and or maybe MS was planning it all along Plus even though I did not notice the new right-click options before I sent feedback there's always the possibility I missed it But I could have sworn they were not there because it was one of the first changes I looked for It was soon after my feedback I don't even think it was more than a day that I saw the new right-click paste options The email from MS didn't say whether they made the change because of feedback only thing it said was that they read it OK so Did MS make changes to office TP via Windows Update like they did with beta Can't go back and check because I erased my HD before installing the real last week Don't know why I never bothered to check when I could have Has anyone here sent feedback to MS for any software then seen a request granted and or gotten an email from MS about it The fact that a behemoth like MS even sent an email is impressive enough I sent a lot of stuff for beta and never heard anything Of course they had a gazillion more beta users than Office TPers
You can interact with their developers on Technet forums, or on the specific blogs for their projects like Win7. They give attention to things which interest them and will often start a dialogue.
Even the excellent MS tech support gave me unbelieveable amounts of time (sometimes overnights) with the purchase of a single retail copy of XP, teaching me clean reinstalls, overcoming bloatware, optimization, virus hunting, debugging, and much more for several years' time - all for $99!
What has most impressed me in my experience with MS is how they interact with learning, prize it, nurture it. They have been some of my best teachers.
So it really shouldnt be a surprise that they finally hit it so right with what may be the greatest creation since the computer itself, Windows 7. But I'm still dazzled.
So I've started choosing my first PC parts. I just wanted some advice on what parts to choose, and feedback or change suggestions of the hardware I've already chosen.
Parts I'm thinking of buying:
Graphics card: GTX 970 Gigabyte 1G
Case: NZXT Phantom 410
Processor: Intel i7-4790
Cooling: Nanoxia Deep Silence 120mm Ultra-Quiet
Hard Drive: Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB
So I still need some more parts obviously, and it would be great if you guys could suggest a motherboard, RAM and a power supply that are compatible with all this stuff (or with anything you suggest)
Also, could someone tell me what performance I can expect from this when playing games?
I assume you intend to play games with this system.
First thing I see is the WD blue drive. The blue series is not a performance hd; if you have to have a mech hd, then go with a black series drive OR a raptor drive. A much better option would be a ssd drive for the system drive and a WD black drive for backups, data, etc.
As for a mb, I use either asus or gigabyte boards; either one with the z97 chipset will be fine.
I am puzzled about how the feedback system works. The feedback buttons are everywhere and working fine even when there is no net connection but my doubt is whether it is really reaching the authorities since there is no auto or other response from microsoft.
Welcome to the Seven Forums.
Haven't ever tried it without a net connection, but when I use it I see a spike in upload bits, so am assuming they're getting it. MS says it has received lots of feedback though.
Hope you enjoy your stay.

its the basic template .... question is, what you think so far, as far as the color templates is going?
dont worry about the fonts ....
what color would you make regular links? links of the menu and all? color of regular text (excluding the menu and all)? text of menu links and all?
any help would be appreciated....
Sounds like Alvin the chipmunk is singing every song. My hardrive went out and was replaced when I started to listen to a cd it sounded funny so I went to launchyahoo.com were I also listen to music and it sounds the same way.
when you harddrive went out - what did you do - rebuild windows - did you update and instal all the drivers.
whats the sound card?
have a look in device maanger and see what the sound device is listed as
to identify hardware try these free programs
The program is freeware called EVEREST Home Edition v1.10 and can be downloaded from http://www.lavalys.com/index.php?page=product&view=1&subpage=5
Just curious if any one else has been sending feedback to MS about issues they come up with? This may be Tin Foil Hat territory, but will sending feedback 'flag' you with MS?
(If you're not a registered member etc. I know the data is supposed to be anonymous... still, this is MS we're dealing with )
I think MS has that little proviso in all their beta and pre-beta programmes.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/395-sending-feedback.html

I like that build very much, not a bum in the lot, as grampa used to say. I see both boards have 2x PCIE slots so im supposing that you are possibly looking at crossfire in the future. so before someone comes in (and they will) and tells you that the second PCIE running at 4x is useless....that's BS. you will only give up around 8-10% (possibly less with the 4770) to the 4x PCIE. so unless you are going for benchmarking records, the 4x works great for a crossfire system.

I would just go with a 5750 and a corsair 400w.
Secondly, 500gb and 640gb hdds hardly cost more than $50...so I would consider one of those.
I just don't really like rosewill that much.
Oh yeah you will probably want a bigger hdd if you're going to do a lot of multimedia.
yeah just all of a sudden one day out of the blue my mic started picking up feed back its annoying and i dont know how to fix it ive tried i dont know if something got changed i just need help to not hear my self and have a screeching noise in my ear please and thank youhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/microphone-feedback-162174.html
Hey everyone, so glad i found this forum.
Anyway straight to the point, I am currently using a Plantronics headset with 2x 3.5mm jacks, I am running it through a usb adapter so taht i can still run music through my speakers. The problem I am noticing is that there is power feedback coming into the headset.
I know it is power related feedback as when i move my usb mouse in different directions the frequency of the feedback changes. So does anyone have an easy solution for this, i would prefer to lose the adapter all together. I originally used the onboard sound card to achieve me goals, but my creative card has taken to hiding the onboard audio; can't even be seen in device manager. Is there a way to enable it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Not really sure if this is the right section to be posting this in but eh. I was looking for a new case between the prices of 60-100$ found the LEXA Blackline wondering if I should get it or go with something else, I know this will sound stupid but I don't really care much about the cooling more about the looks. But hey if theres a case with bitchin' cooling and looks then by all means please post a link. Yeah any feedback would be appreciated.
I am A+ certified and have just started advertising to local people about being able to do "tune-ups" on computers to get rid of viruses, spyware and such. I posted a question on EE about your recomendations for freeware spyware utilitiy and the one that came back, (besides Windows Defender and Ad-aware) was the Ewido Security Suite. I must say, I am familiar with Ewido but I've never been sure about what it does compared to other spyware utilities nor was I even aware that there's a free version of it. So what exactly does it do differently compared with other utilites, what limits are put on it in the free version compared to the full version and what kind of success have you had with it?

I downloaded the free 14 day trial about 6 months ago after the trial I was left with about the same functionality as with Adware se personal i.e.I can scan when I want (but cannot set a scheduled scan only manualy) .
Updates are free but cannot set up automatic updates.
There is a very useful right click shell scan option(right click file and select scan with Ewido very similair to Avg free).
as to what the difference is between it and the others I'm not sure but I use Spybot search and destroy,Adware se personal and Ewido one after the other (best to be sure lol) and each pick up threats the others have missed (by the way I don't run them in the same order each time ).
When I get around to it I will be buying the full package as it seemed very good at stopping spyware in the first place (i.e. before it got onto my system).
is that lot any help :0)
