    Look I'm not going to argue either way. OP asked for a suggestion and I provided one. I still believe he/she is most likely be better of going with a new SSD over anything else. That is what I would do at least. 480GB SSD can be had for like £40 nowadays, the existing drive can be used for the...

    If one is going to go with the re-install of Windows then NOT buying SSD in the first place is a total mistake! Old HDD tech is dead - and rightly so. It's just datacentres and home NAS/storage solutions which are still using it - and that's where I agree, that data cleanup, defrag is...

    While cleaning up the drive, defrag and full reinstall is the cheapest way to go it is not going to make any reasonable difference. IMO it's just a waste of time. If you are still using the old school HDD then go and buy yourself a new SSD. Install everything from scratch and it will all feel...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Should I ditch the second drive?

    ... also forget RAID0 it is a terrible idea no matter the circumstances. Could you not do with 256GB for system drive and 1TB for data? Or simply go with 1TB single drive... and if in future want another drive just add it later on. As already been said you will not really game on a MX250 :(

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What Are Some Good Sub £100 Headphones for "Gaming" and Listening to Audiophile Music

    I game on my old trusted ath-m50x and these are superb for music and also for gaming. However, they can get your ears quite "warm" after few hours of constant action. Knowing this I would get maybe open-back headphones like grado sr80e. It's difficult to advise on gaming purely as ... I buy...

    Better wait to have it properly tested and then enjoy it for months on end.. Rather than rush it, spend extra money on Sat delivery and then in case you run into any issues you will be regretting it. I know it sucks not having it for the weekend... but on the whole you waited for it so long what...

    I wish my budget could afford latest and greatest at the time. I kind of usually go for the previous gen but a higher tier. It doesn't always work that way tho. I may be making jump to 1440p for Cyberpunk too.. so, I better start saving money :)

    I think the XT is the throwback to the old Radeon GPUs from like early 2000s or so. Not ideal but that's what it is. It's a bit of the bummer that the "Navi" is not 2080 competitor and also is not at the price we were expecting. However, for one I don't think they have to compete against top...

    Hey up guys? So who's playing this game. I have to be honest, Division 1 did not really win my heart and I've quickly moved to different games. However, Division 2 is a totally different kind of fish. I actually really, really like it. I wonder if one of the reason I didn't get hooked on...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Can I Disable Case Reset Button?

    Reset button is usually a header pin the mobo. Locate the one that says "Reset" and disconnect it. Each mobo location is different but principle will be the same. It may look like this pic: Make sure you disconnect Power cord before you start disconnecting things. Obviously only disconnect...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Changing HDD to SSD picture is worth thousand words. Do you mean you only have one SATA power and then few old Molex connectors? Something like this: If so you may need additional adapter to convert Molex into SATA power:

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST ZEN – no, not the meditation practice!

    I wanted to start some discussion about the upcoming architecture from AMD called ZEN. First of all, can any brand fanboys keep their attitude at bay as I know there is nothing worse than starting Intel vs AMD debate. Point of the thread is to have a constructive discussion, I hope. Let me...
