I'm thinking of buying a 17" monitor for a dual monitor setup, mainly so I can keep an eye on GPU/CPU performance stats while gaming. Just wondering would this affect my FPS?
Also can anyone recommend any cheap but reliable 17" monitors?
Never owned a laptop and I'm looking for a spec able to cope with general everyday duties and intensive internet and film watching use, maybe play the odd game on decent settings but not looking for a gaming spec. Also must stay cool. Max £700...cheers!
I apologise for the quality of the pics as I had to use my mobile. Had my rig nearly 3 weeks now and it is brilliant I must say, plus a lot quieter than I though it would be. It runs very cool even when playing games like Metro 2033. I'm happy with it, should last me a while. I may upgrade...
Does anyone know of any good, free programs I could use to measure what FPS I'm getting in games?
Metro 2033 runs super smooth with everything maxed out in DX11, just wondered how many FPS I'm getting.
Also what's the minimum FPS you need to run a game smooth and is there any limit where you...
My Windows 7 Eperience Index rating is as follows;
CPU - 7.5
RAM - 7.5
Graphics - 7.9
Gaming Graphics - 7.9
Hard Disk - 5.9
The hard disk is letting me down, how can I improve the rating to 7+? Is it a SSD? Or are there any other options?
1 - I heard that for powerful case fans its best to connect them direct to PSU rather than the motherboard, what are your views on this? I had to re-connect my side fan on my CM HAF-X and I just connected to the motherboard as it was the easiest option, would there be any issues with this?
The last game I bought and played on the PC was Civ 5 (great game!). Now that I've ordered my new rig (currently 5th working day), I have bought Crysis Maximum edition ready to test it. What other stand out games would you recommend me to buy?
