    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC Case

    Hey everyone. I've been wanting to swap out my case for a while, the one I have is nice in how it looks, but I feel it is lacking in some ways. I currently have the Zalman Z-11 Plus (mid tower). I have seen a nice case I wouldn't mind getting, but it's spec details how it can accommodate for ATX...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST C++

    I'm currently learning C++ and I have to finish off a program, but I'm having a bit of an issue getting an if statement to work correctly. The problem I'm encountering is that I'm trying to get the program to output a value based on the users input, but it always gives one particular value which...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Double RAM

    I finally decided it was time to double up to 16GB, but unfortunately, PCS don't stock the RAM I chose with my build anymore. I'm having a bit of trouble finding the same RAM elsewhere and I was hoping someone would be able to point me in the right direction to help me find some hopefully...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST GPU failing to display

    Hey everyone. I have a GTX 670 GPU. Recently the PCIe slot the GPU was originally installed in stopped working, so I moved the GPU to the second PCIe, but the same issue seems to have repeated itself. The mobo is an ASUS p8z77-v Do I have any options in replacing the slots, or might it be a...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Hard Drive Caddy/Enclosure

    Had a bit of a problem with a Western Digital HD I bought from here over a year ago now. I've had it kept aside for a long time and decided to finally install it. Long story short, stiff cabling inside the case put too much pressure on the pins where you insert the power cable, bending the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recommend new mouse & GPU question

    The Razer Deathadder mouse that I chose when I got my PC has definitely seen better days, the scroll wheel has taken a hit from daily use, for one. Hoping to replace it now, I'm looking at spending not too much more than £40 if anyone could help recommend. The only 'needs' that come to mind...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Monitor + Television

    I've been wanting a second screen for quite some time, and thought about getting a TV rather than another monitor (regardless of whether it was a monitor/Television I was going for something bigger than the monitor I have now and hoping to go dual-screen with the current+new). So I'd be using...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Sound Card and Completely Removing Drivers

    My Xonar DS has been problematic since day one, but I got it to work eventually. But I was never able to open the Audio Center, and so today I went in to Programs & features, went to Asus Xonar and tried pressing the Uninstall/change button expecting to be given some options, no menu popped up...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Screenshots!

    You'd think with the amount of time I've spent playing Dark Souls I'd have countless screenshots, but I don't have all that many. ^Artorias' original armour ^And restored mod I was invaded in the painted world, so I used Chameleon and the invader was running around for a good bit of time, lol.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Thermal Paste

    I've now got my first couple of upgrades but forgot about Thermal Paste for the CPU. Are there any that are better than others, any recommended or ones to avoid completely? I'm not sure if it makes a difference when it comes to the paste, but the CPU isn't overclocked.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Screen recorder

    I did use MSI Afterburner a while back for recording, up until Shadowplay came along. Just change the settings to whatever suits. One problem I had with it was the sound toward the end when choosing to stop recording would sometimes suddenly break off before the video itself ends, but...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Upgrades on Existing PC

    I'd checked the upgrade page as I'm about ready to decide on a couple of components to get, but there are currently no options for two of the things that I was hoping for. One being the CPU's, the other being RAM. Wondering if there might be more i7-3770's and 8GB SAMSUNG DUAL-DDR3 1600MHz (2 X...

    I'm planning to order some of my first upgrades soon and would like to suggest if it is possible to have a Bank Transfer option added for upgrade purchases like when ordering a new build?
