• Is putting 2 Graphic cards in one computer a good idea in my scenario?

    Best answer: That won't work. If you're going to put in a second card, it MUST be identical to your first card. You can't mix&match. Furthermore, you generally only get a 30% boost from 2 cards vs. 1. So while you can fin GTX770's pretty cheap, that single GTX1060 would be more powerful than the 2... show more

    GTX1060 would be more powerful than the 2 770's combined. This is also why I find SLI to generally be a waste of money.

  • If you have a low end cpu and a cad rated GPU, would gaming on it matter?

    First off I have a low end CPU, probably rated for everyday tasks. I loaded the RAM on it with 2 8gb sticks 16gb max. I placed a graphic card in the computer that has 4GB dedicated memory and it was CAD rated, and intended for heavy graphic users. would gaming on it be a problem?

  • Headphones stopped working, what could be the problem?

    I always use my headphones with my laptop and it works just fine. Now, when I'm playing a video and plug them in, I can't hear the video with my headphones in. There's just no sound at all. When I take the headphones out from the laptop, I can hear it. Why did they stop working? What's the fix?

  • I want my parents to buy me a new laptop, how do I forge a newsletter to make it seems like it's from school?

    Best answer: Schools do not make those demands upon parents. If you got a pencil and pen and paper that is all you need...to do the work in class. Computer is not a requirement. If you want, go and earn the money by WORKING for it. Or you can use the school computers....XP I believe.

    Wow okay, been ages since I used Yahoo Answers but here goes. I have an old broken laptop, pretty intact except the keys are all broken because they got coffee spilled on them. I'm going to a shooting range soon and I really want to shoot my old laptop, but I know LCD screens contain mercury. It is almost definite if I shoot the laptop the mercury tubes will break, creating mercury gas. I do however own a gas mask I could wear. Should I say screw it and shoot the laptop with screen inside, or should I take the screen out of the laptop first, dispose of it properly and then shoot the other part of the laptop? (and no I am not going to recycle the entire thing)

    Best answer: The computer is telling you that your CPU is getting hot the heat sink grease has probably gotten old and it's triggering a heat alert remove the heatsink from the CPU taking care not to jerk the CPU out of the socket where you'll have to receipt all those little pins instead of pulling straight up on it push down slightly and twist right to left right to left until the heatsink breaks loose from the CPU clean the surfaces really well and put new heat sink grease on it if you don't happen to have heat sink grease you can go to the auto parts store and at the counter for $1 they have spark plug anti seize which works just as fine as heat sink grease dissipates heat better last longer

    Best answer: The R9 280x is a rebranded HD7970 Ghz edition and It's somewhere in the range of a GTX 1050ti. Passmark says the latter is faster but Techpowerup says the former is faster. Single card mining has not been profitable for quite some time and the R9 280x/7970 is not a very efficient mining card to begin with. Not every AMD card was used for mining, and some Nvidia cards were and are being used for mining. However, since that card is power hungry and runs hot, it's difficult to say how much longer it will last.

    The E3-1230 is only worth $70usd and the H77 board isn't worth a whole lot either. 16gb of RAM has some value but overall that's a system I could possibly find used on Craigslist for $350usd. The E3-1230 came out in 2011 so it's quite an old CPU.

    $450aud to 550aud is a fair price for that system. $650aud would only be fair if it comes with speakers, a really nice monitor, and a nice keyboard/mouse. I think you can do better.

As he told me. Computer 3: Original price was $1 262, sold now $504. This is just translated from Swedish currency though! I will mostly be surfing, chatting and watching movies, but somewhat game, usually Minecraft, but now that I will have a decent computer I'll most likely get some other games I previously couldn't play, Overwatch or Rise of the Tomb Raider being the first to pop into my head. I know the computers may seem a bit overkill for what I need, but I still like to have a good one, plus they're all in my price range so it's not an issue.

  • GTX 1050 or R9 290X?

    Best answer: The R9 is not 4x better by any means, but it is definitely more powerful than the GTX 1050. The GTX 1050 scores a benchmark of 79,022; the R9 290x scores a benchmark of 120,860.

    To answer your second question, no, they cannot be used together. They both use different technologies. NVIDIAs can be paired with NVIDIAs, AMD can be paired with AMD. But there is no mix n' match in the graphics market.
