    nvidia this or nvidia that?

    Having read the article (hat tip to clifford_cooley), it contained about what I expected. I've been asking around at linustechtips.com as well, and got the same specs from their review on YouTube/vessel. So the titan x would basically be for "I can afford this" bragging rights. If I were in...

    nvidia this or nvidia that?

    I'm getting ready to upgrade my video card and monitor. I'm pretty sold on nvidia, my current setup is a pair of gtx 680s in sli on a 1080p 24". So here's my question: the difference in prove between a single 980 and a titan x is about $440. Is the titan x's performance increase worth it? I...

    SOLVED BSOD watching Youtube

    I am still around, and I am currently using Firefox for everything I can. It was a Chrome problem, and I only use that for one website now. Really annoying to have that happen so randomly, I have to say. Thanks for the shout though, I'll be marking this as solved.

    SOLVED BSOD watching Youtube

    I removed the Google Hangouts extension just after I came back up from the last crash. I had uninstalled it after the last crash as well, and had no problems until I tried it again (I would have mentioned that earlier, but blanked on it from frustration). I've got my fingers crossed. I have...

    SOLVED BSOD watching Youtube

    Okay, crashed with the same problem just a few minutes ago (Saturday 25JAN2014 approx. 5 PM EST). Uploading the minidump file. I had previously been watching YouTube videos, but had closed the window and opened another (checking e-mail when I crashed). I think it may be the Google Hangouts...

    SOLVED BSOD watching Youtube

    While I loathe the idea of eliminating AdBlock+, a system crash is far worse than dealing with ads. Stopping Avast's addon isn't as big a deal as that even... I'm pretty careful about where I go on the web. I still haven't crashed yet today though. As for the video cards, I'm definitely up to...

    SOLVED BSOD watching Youtube

    Okay, I haven't had a crash yet today, but I set up for Small Memory Dumps as opposed to Kernel Dumps. I just installed The Alternative Flash Player AutoUpdater, ran it, and found that Flash was up to date for Firefox/Chrome. It wasn't for IE but I never use that PoS anyway. I guess we'll...

    SOLVED BSOD watching Youtube

    I am, just in the past couple of days, getting a similar problem as Chadbonk's post HERE. It's always when watching YouTube videos. I have no idea why something so specific as that would cause a BSoD. I'm trying to upload a zip file (btw, why can't I upload a .7z file?) of my most recent...

    I was being facetious. :P Everything works great after the re install. Thanks for all the help.

    SOLVED Serious Windows Update error

    I created an internal partition on my 2 TB secondary drive. I actually just got done reinstalling and reupgrading Windows. I used the easy transfer utility to store the small amount of data it helps with, I'll be doing that part next.

    SOLVED Serious Windows Update error

    Well, I guess my registry's hosed then. I'll have to find a HDD somewhere (not easy when there's no extra money in the budget at the moment). Thanks though, at least I have an idea what's going on.

    SOLVED Serious Windows Update error

    Well, that's interesting. TrainableMan, I first ran the sfc (as an administrator) and came up with this: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation." I installed CCleaner, it seems to work nicely. I may purchase the pro version when I have a little cash. It did...

    U.S. Homeland Security urges computer users to disable Java

    But... everything runs Java. EVERYTHING. The installer says so. So if this is true, then Black Hats have officially destroyed computing for the foreseeable future.

    SOLVED Serious Windows Update error

    Hey all, I have a severe problem with Windows Update at the moment. I did a search on the forums for this error and found nothing, so I'm starting a thread here. Windows Update gives me the error code 8007370D. I do believe I've tried just about everything I can to fix it, with no...
