    PCIE or SATA M.2?

    I'm stuck. Their are two types of M.2. Sata and PCIe. Does that mean that PCIe connects via PCIe 1x slot or the M.2 slot provided on the mobo. I'm trying to decide to go with sata or pcie m.2 for the MSI Gaming M5. I'm looking at 120gb mass of storage.

    What monitor should I get for the GTX 1080?

    I saw some benchmarks of the GTX 1080 at 1440p, and they seemed very promising. However, some of the most demanding/poorly optimized games will get under 60fps average on 1440p. I was thinking about 1080p to completely future proof my build. What resolution should I get? Another question, if I...

    Screen loses signal but PC stays on

    I've snooped around for answers to this problem but they were usually aimed at specific PC parts, but personally I don't know what causes this. The problem is that my monitor (and sound via speakers) loses connection with the PC but the PC remains running. The gfx card's fans still spin...

    So I believe that my Hard Drive is failing. My computer crashed the other day and windows would not start whenever I turn it on. It would originally let me try and go to a restore point or do an automatic repair, and then said I need to boot windows using a cd or a media device. But now, I am...

    Athlon X3 450 vs FX 4300

    Hi TH' readers, Yesterday I bought myself a 750 Ti 2GB as an upgrade from my old HD 5670 512MB. Both cards draw the same power from the PCI slot so it's a great upgrade for a low-power mid-range card. My concern is that the graphics performance may be bottleneck by my old Athlon X3 450. So I...
