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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been having intermittent problems with my mouse, here's the topic.
Buying a new one is a must, to hunt down the source of the problem more easily.
So which mouse do you guys/gals use & which would you recommend for gaming/general use ?

A:Recommend a good gaming mouse

Razer, and Logitech are my first two choices for gaming mice, from there it is all about how much money you want to spend. Personally I like mice that give you a switch that toggles the dpi on the fly. That way you can have it super sensitive for gaming and not so sensitive for non-gaming uses.

When I say gaming I mean 5-button. I like those forward-backward buttons and I rely on them heavily. I'd prefer something ergonomic, but if my budget is too low then what the heck. I've had a £10 TeckNet mouse for the past 2 years and it's been okay, just not the greatest position for my fingers, which hurt after prolonged use. I am, of course, right-handed.

Right now my best bet is to get the MSI Interceptor DS100.

A:Would this be good for gaming?

Laptops in general are not designed for gaming, and your ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 is probably only designed for some HD video and very light gaming. I've never heard of Dragonica Online, but I assume it's just a MMORPG and doesn't sound like a very demanding game, so you may want to check your internet connection/wireless card to see if that's causing the lag.

I want to buy a new gaming PC, and I was looking around for something good. Someone recommended me this build:

Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Extreme3

Graphic card: Asus GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5
PSU: XFX TS Series 550W

Processor: AMD Black Edition - AMD FX 6350

I'll have to pay around 873 euros for this PC. This includes Windows 7, 1 year warranty, anti virus (Bullguard Anti Virus), and a Sharkoon gaming set (keyboard and mouse).

Is this worth it? Can I play games like League of Legends with no lag? Is it a good pc for its price?? Any advice is much appreciated since I don't have that much knowledge on PCs. I thank you in advance for helping me!

A:Will this be a good gaming PC?

Well that price translates to about 1200 US dollars. IMO you can build a much better pc for that price. I would check out TS's PC buying guide. Their enthusiast level machine seems like a much better deal than the one you posted. Check it out here:

Minus the sound card and maybe a cheaper case it is about the same price as the one you posted.

A:Is this a good PC for gaming?

An idea

If you go to ebuyer/newegg/scan or any major hardware you can price up all of the parts individually. Then you could see the total and you would know if you are getting a bargain or not.

From the spec I would think that you would have a great time with gaming on that rig.

A:Good enough for gaming?

LGA775 is dying but if you are strapped for cash, spending $160-200 (assuming your PSU is adequate) on a card would keep you going awhile. To give you a performance reference, the Core2 Quad performs on par with the current i3's. If current gaming benchmark's of the i3 is satisfactory, then you are good for awhile. If you think you need i5 or better performance, then a new system would be recommended.

Also soes it seem like an ok PSU for price. Thanks for any help you can give.

A:Is This PSU good enough for a gaming rig?

The PSU needs to be mounted so that the fan is underneath and not on top. That way, it pulls the warm air from within the case and vents it away from your system through the PSU, with the air exiting your system through the grid of holes on its rear panel.

If you look at my sig, is this PC good for gaming? Because I have been having a hard time with certain games. Doom 3 works well for the most part but will lag up during combat when there is a lot of shadowing and dynamic lighting going on. As well as post processing effects like bluring and such. Now Far Cry seems to be slow ALL the TIME. Half Life 2 on the other hand works like a charm with everything turned ALL the way up. I am thinking that it might be my Video Card causing me all this grief cause the rest of my specs always seem to fall well within the recomended specs for each game. Can anyone suggest any changes to my System to improve performance for games.

Historically a message in a bottle is a form of communication whereby a message is sealed in a container (archetypically a glass bottle, but could be any medium, so long as it floats and remains waterproof) and released into the sea or ocean. The phrase "message in a bottle" literally comes from the practice of placing an important but untargeted letter inside a (usually) glass bottle, sealing it, and allowing ocean currents to carry it away. There are indications that ancient Greek scientists used the message in a bottle to study the general flow of oceans and early militaries also used bottles to relay messages to distant troops, although this method did have a few tactical drawbacks.

Good swap on those components - put the money where the gaming performance is.

Also consider the 10% OC option for only $19 unless you plan to OC yourself - a cheap upgrade, although it may affect other choices.

The CoolerMaster HAF 912CoolerMaster HAF 912 is reported to run hot. You might want to consider another case. Or at least go for the case fan upgrade for $9 if it has places for more fans.

Decent, 9500 GT is a bit weak for modern gaming though. Also, the 400W power supply has to be of high quality to really be enough for that. Corsair, OCZ, Enermax, Seasonic, Silverstone, PC Power & cooling...

With regards to the graphics card, you may want to wait a few months for the Radeon 5xxx series, they should be cheaper per performance, more energy efficient, and will have DX 11 capability...

It is good, the SLi isn't very necessary. You could probably bump the processor up to a better one as well, keep it as a core 2 duo but aim for 2.0 - 2.5 Ghz or higher. Remember, when you are buying from a brand name, you are also paying for that name and not just the parts. Although it is a laptop so it would be much harder to build it yourself and find parts...

All in all its is a good laptop for gaming, depending on what games you play of course.

If you have the option get one 8800 GT instead of the SLi 8700M's

My compter seems to "chug" or slow down for a few seconds every minute or so when I play any game on my system, other wise they run fine.

my graphics card is a Leadtek PX8800 GT (PCI)

I have installed the latest NVIDIA driver and what not. I don't understand why because its a brand new machine and the games should run sweet, especially seeing im only trying to play older games like Half life2 and counter strike. Its not an online thing cause offline games do it as well.

Hi, I'm looking to get a gaming headset since my Dad doesnt want a 5.1 surround sound system. I've looked at the Altec Lansing AHS602i which seemed pretty good to me from the reviews and price, but since it isnt actually true 3d sound, I looked at other, "True 5.1 surround sound" like Turtle Beach Ear Force AK-R8 which seem to sound superior based on reviews (cnet and such), but is twice the cost and need their own sound cards which slows down the computer (Crysis my main game now). My question is, anyone had experience with the simulated 3d sound like from the Altec or is the "True 5.1" headphones the only way to go if i want great sounding games despite the high cost and performance hit? Thanks.

A:Good gaming headset to buy?

I'd recommend a better graphics card.

If you are on a budget, you probably wouldn't need 16GB memory for gaming just yet. A $60 savings on 2x4GB modules, would go along way in getting a better graphics card. I'd recommend at least Radeon HD 7790 or the newer release Radeon R7 260X.

A:Is This A Good Gaming Laptop ???

the page is not responding - I think you will find laptops still do not play games very well - unless you pay a lot for the device - very few have a true seperate graphics card - you will need to look at the spec very carefully

my HP laptop DV5094 does have a seperate 128MB graphics card - but never played games on it.

If you can wait, Intel is about to release their newest cpu offerings "Sandy Bridge." Then make your choice and you may get some the parts you list a little less expensive. But, yes, that system you're putting together is very powerful.

However, have you considered the Radeon latest offerings?

A:Is this a good gaming system?

Since you're already spending so much (and can afford spending more) and assuming you want the system to last a while down the road, get a 45nm quad-core CPU like the Q9450.

Also, the Maximus II Formula is a Crossfire board. Get the GA-EP45-DS3L instead IMO. Gigabyte's build quality is better than ASUS from what I've seen and Gigabyte's boards are less fussier about RAM than ASUS'. That being said, I have an ASUS P5E3 and it's been rock-solid so far, but I paid a lot of money for it (since I wanted 1600MHz DDR3 RAM to match my CPU's FSB) and I suspect that is why I have yet to suffer any major problems.

As for your case, get a big one with lots of room like the Cooler Master Stacker 832. I have one and it is HUGE! It has a lot of room for a water cooling setup, as well as a very robust air-cooling system.

Lastly, don't cheap out on the PSU. The Zalman is good, but an 850W PSU with only 60A on the +12V rail isn't really that great. I'd recommend the superior PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 or the Corsair TX750W. Also, keep in mind that you don't really need such a powerful PSU and that a good-quality 650W PSU such as the Corsair TX650W or the Antec NeoPower 650W will be enough, since you don't plan on having a dual-card setup.

Good for running most games on medium-high settings. Not suited to hardcore gaming IMO. You should get the E7200 instead of your current CPU and invest more money in a better GPU, like the HD 4850, since that will affect game performance far more than the CPU.

I've reviewed the Motherboard and VGA specs and i can tell you that the video card will work with that motherboard without a problem.

Regarding the gaming experience it provides i think you're a 100% set, I am running WoW on full graphics on my Latitude E6400 which has an nvida quadro nvs 160m which is only about as 70% strong as the video card you've selected.

You should have absolutely no problem running those game on that card and that card on that motherboard!

I recently bought Team Fortress 2, and have had some trouble playing it. It will usually just freeze and crash whenever I try to play. Since the rest of my computer meets it's requirements, I assume that it is my integrated graphics card which is causing problems. A few years ago, my brother tried to purchase a new graphics card for Oblivion. He apparently had done the research, but when the card came, it didn't fit in our PCI slot. I am just looking a for an up-to-date gaming graphics card that will fit my slot.

P.S.-I found i random phone-jack card that fits in one of my PCI slots. The part of the card which you plug in (don't know the term) looks very similar to the plug on this card -

Let me know whether that card will work in my computer or not.

A:Looking for a good PCI card for gaming

That Powercolor card is a PCI card and should fit any PCI slot whether yours or your brother's. I can't account for it not physically fitting into your brother's PCI slot unless you were mistakenly trying to fit it into an AGP or PCI-E slot instead.

A:New to PC gaming, is this a good build?

Those specs are solid for a Gaming PC. However, I'm positive you will save money if you just built it yourself. Also, that list doesn't include a PSU. So, you will need to pick a PSU for your build. The PSU is one of the most important parts. Thus, you always want to pick something with good build quality.

Is your budget $1275ish?

If you're open to building the machine yourself. I am sure myself or someone here could help you build a machine best for your budget.

A:Would you buy this for gaming? Cheap but good?

Install fraps... You need at least 60FPS for the games to be enjoyable in my honest opinion. There is a huge difference between it running max settings/res, and it actually being playable.

Others will have to tell you if the price is worth it, as I'm from the UK.

I was just wondering what you guys think is a good price range for a nice gaming rig. I probably plan on using newegg to get the parts. But I just need an idea on how much money is really needed for a good gaming comp.

A:how much should it cost for good gaming pc?

To make a Very Powerfull reliable computer it'll cost you about 2000 or more..
but if you want a good Mid range PC which will also run all your games with great frame rates its gna cost you abotu 1600 to 1700

but if ur talking hardcore like 7800 GTX sli amd 4200+ and stuff that'll cost u about 2800 or more

I found this computer online at tiger direct

I was wondering if this would be a decent gaming computer. I looked around on the net a lot and most suggestions I find are only for the newest most banging computers, but I am on a bit of a budget, which attracted me to this one in the first place.

Should I be worried about the fact that this is refurbished? Again I googled Gateway computers and got a lot of stories of their computers going man down just after the warranty expires, and the fact this only has 3 months on it kinda worries me, but it does seem like a decent computer.

Anyways thanks in advance for any help, it will be much appreciated.

A:Good Gaming Laptop?

What does your RAM look like? You should atleast have a 2GB of it. I have four and I havent run into any problems. Only thing i suggest you look into is having 32 bit vista. I run on a 64 bit like you want and I run into problems with installing games using this version of Vista. Although 64Bit may be better, there seems to be less bugs with the 32

Hello i'm a long time lurker but now I have to post. I'm having a problem picking out a system for gaming. I want a good system but would only like to spend between 1,500 and 2,000. I am not very computer smart so please bear with me.

I'm looking at the following computer:

Intel core 2 quad Q9450 oem 2.66 I believe
Motherboard p-35 --- please help with a selection?
4 gb ddr2 memory/800 What manufacturer and part # ?
GEForce 8800 GTS 512
Hard drive WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200RPM
Corsairs PSU probably 550 watts?
Vista home premium 64 bit
Tower unknown please advise
Fans type and amount?
Heat sink?

Is this a good system for online multi player gaming, and is there anything I should change or reconsider?

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

So I just ordered this computer, I plan to play Skyrim, TF2, Minecraft, Half Life, and Garry's Mod.
Do you think it could handle these games? Not on all highest settings but at least Moderate for most of them, low to Medium for Skyrim.

P.S I'm on a budget so please don't make me feel too bad about this new computer


A:Is this computer any good for gaming?

Which video card are you opting to get with it? The default Intel HD 2500 integrated graphics are not likely sufficient for Skyrim beyond low settings, and may even struggle with that.

Any of the other cards, non of which are considered a gaming graphics card and are odd-ball custom OEM cards designed for the weak power supply in the computer, would likely give you the low to medium for Skyrim.

All the rest of games are less demanding.

A:Looking for a new monitor good for gaming

Asus are fine, as are Samsung and Dell. In any case, as you are looking at TN panels, they are all about equal. Just watch for models with the "2ms" rating and you should be fine.

Hi, I'm looking for some good gaming speakers. I was going to get the Microlabs solo 6c but they are a bit fat to go on my desk. SO I thought I'd go for the 7C's instead as they are thinner but it turns out they aren't that good if you are really close to them ie they are on your computer desk. Plus they are still slightly humongous.

What speakers do you recommend, I would like to pay around the price of the SOLO 6C's.


Edit: I'll be using a Soundblaster Z with these speakers. I'm thinking of going with the Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II.

A:Good gaming speakers?

Those are audiophile speakers, not gaming. You want something with a subwoofer for the best impact in games.

Consider a Creative 5.1 system... if not, 2.1. They are a good brand.

I got 2 questions about a monitor with 7ms I'm dying of buying:

1) Is a monitor with 7ms response time good for gaming? Will there be noticeable lag?

2) Would a monitor with 4ms be as unnoticeable in lag as one with 7ms?

I'd say it's a good CPU, but note that you won't be able to upgrade it in the future as it is soldered onto the motherboard.

I'm following this pc gamer guide on what parts to buy for my new pc

Is this a good setup for the money or are there any better alternatives sold in the uk?

I have no experience of building my own computer rig so i'm very much clueless as what to look for other than price =/


A:Is this a good / cheap gaming rig?

Good rig, quality components. Years ago I used to see what PCGamer was recommending before I built my own.

Hello all,

My monitor has recently stopped working and it has increased my need to buy a new one.

I am doing my university studies through the internet and so I use my computer a lot. I also use my computer to play video games so I figure if I am going to buy a new monitor I might as well get a really nice one for gaming as well.

Please if any of you have bought a monitor recently and you think it's perfect or if there are any suggestions on what monitor would be good to buy for this purpose then let me know.

I'd also like to know if there are any monitors I should stay away from.

many thanks,

A:Good Gaming Monitor for £150-£250 ($240-$400)

There are many monitor brands available from LG, ViewSonic, Samsung, HannsG (to name just a few). Like everything else, there will be monitors of varying quality across their ranges. I see that you've set yourself an upper price limit of ?250, and you should be able to buy a reasonable monitor from most manufacturers for that.

The best thing to do is to go round some computer shops and view any prospective monitors in action, and make your own judgements on what you actually see, after all you're going to be the one using it.

Hi, well I'm looking to get a new computer. I was wondering if this is a good computer for gaming, but mostly if it will give me good results in CSS (on the default settings without adding any of the extra components):

According to my parents, it's that or nothing. I can't pay for it because I'm broke, lol. So would it be good for gaming (mostly CSS)?

I just bought an Asus K Series laptop, processor being Intel Core i7-4500U, base speed 1.80 Ghz with turbo boost up to 3.0 Ghz. Its GPU is Geforce GT 740M. The RAM is 4gb.

So is this laptop suitable for gaming with smooth gameplay and performance, at least medium to high settings with nice FPS?

My main games are Counter-Strike Global Offensive, League of Legends and Dota 2. Maybe Resident Evil 6 and Saints Row IV too.

A:Is my laptop good for gaming?


Hardware mentioned seems to be impressive. Still if you want you can go to Can You RUN It | Can I run that game | Game system requirements and check if your system will be able to run the game smoothly or not. This site will run a small scan on your hardware and lets you know if the system is capable to run that specific game or not.
