    I had Windows 7, and sometimes the mouse would just stop clicking on certain things. It might click inside a Chrome window, but when clicking on the Start menu or task bar, nothing happened.

    Will getting an SSD help?

    Recently I have built a PC. It has an intel i5 4690K and a R9 380X. At first everything was alright, I installed all the drivers and it ran AAA games smoothly at medium settings, but after a while I started getting massive frame drops making games unplayable even at low settings. Could my hard...

    1920x1080 on a 21:9 monitor

    If I find a game that I don't want to run at 2560 x 1080p, can I just choose to run it at 1920 x 1080p and I'll obviously have black bars on the side? Would a 1440p allow you to play 1080p games or does it force you to upscale to 1440p thus leading to a blurred quality?
