    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Problems of fixing my desktop during start up.

    I kinda half fixed it... It wouldn't start up at the most random of times, it would get past the windows loading screen then goes black. Anyway I had a fiddle about and realised that everytime it seemed to screw up, it was because there is a USB drive slotted in, wither its my 360 controller or...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Whats the most time you've spent on a video game?

    Ever? Goes for console games too. For me: Counterstrike: Source Phantasy Star Online (Dreamcast, first console online MMO) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarena of Time (N64) If I could get the hours back I spent playing these games I'd be some kind of brain surgeon driving an Aston Martin on a...

    I'm stuck, I live in a business premises and I've been using the business internet for everything, gaming, downloading, Skype etc. Sadly what I didn't realise is there is a 10GB per MONTH allowance.

    As the title says, do you agree with 3D gaming? A movement into the next generation of gaming or is it an expensive gimmick? Thoughts?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Which internet browser do you use?

    I used Firefox for many years and I had to change several months ago to Google Chrome because I'm starting to find that Firefox is starting to end up like Internet Explorer. Once I changed I was amazed to see the difference in overall speed, could just be me though. It's just clean and simple...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Which is better? (Power Supply)

    1010W Quiet 80 PLUS Quad Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan or CORSAIR 850 ENTHUSIAST SERIES TX850 V2-80 PLUS BRONZE They seem to be the same price, currently my P.C will only be using around 640 WATT but I'd like to have more in the future in case I want to buy 2 graphics cards and upgrade it generally.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Amending Orders

    If I amend an order will that delay the building? I'm asking because I am ordering a Desktop P.C, on the 16th working day and still in 'Pre-Production' stage. I'll give them a call soon, was just wondering if that was the case?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Amending orders.

    I'm trying to amend mine and change the graphics cards, I previously chosen AMD and wanting to change to NVidia (or compare prices) and it wont show any NVidia cards.. so it makes it a tad bit awkward to compare prices etc unless I start again from building a P.C just to see what NVidia cards...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Is it worth buying a higher power supply if..

    You are more likely to upgrade in the future? I got a power supply thats just right for my p.c at the moment, but if I add anything big on like another graphics card I will have to get a higher one.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 2GD AMD RADEON HD6950 vs 2GB AMD RADEON HD6970

    I'm finding it hard to tell the difference between the two graphics cards apart from the price. I ordered a 6970 but I phoned PCspecialist and they said it wont be in until next week or even the week after so I said I'd go with the 6950 instead and saved a good £50 or so. Can anyone tell me...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Lack of P.C game shops.

    I went into Gamestation and GAME yesterday to get some games for my new P.C which is being built, wondering where the P.C game stacks are I was shown into a tiny stack in the middle of the shop. When questioning why there are a lack of P.C games they just replied its because everyone is buying...

    Untill the 20th. Got a disappointing e-mail to say my p.c wont even be built until then let alone tested etc. which is a huge bummer. I suppose there is no way to change graphics card to Nvidia?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Looking at previous posts.

    I may have missed it but is there a way to find out all of your previous posts? If not I think it would be a great idea to find it much easier to see if anyone has replied to any of your posts/threads the day before or the last time you logged in.

    Can anyone recomend me where to go to get decent chairs? I need one where I can relax and watch Blu-Rays, play a lot of games etc. My budget is around £50-£150. I see Amazon and seen a few that sparked my interest but I can never tell the quality apart from the reviews. What chair do you use...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Star Wars Blu-Ray

    Anyone get it yet? I just purchased my copy today.. It's a great box set with lots and lots of special features that will keep me busy for weeks. The reason Blu-Ray appealed to me was the idea of how epic Star Wars looked on HD. I wasn't disappointed.
