The problem is that it's most likely not just looking at graphics cards. 8 times seems like it wouldn't be a problem for someone who buys prebuilt computers but what about people who don't? Maybe it looks at all hardware in total. What if you get rid of or add an optical drive? What if you replace your HDD with an SSD or add more HDD space? Sound card? Esata/usb cards? Ram? Want to upgrade your cpu? It really adds up if it looks at every little upgrade especially within...
Honestly, between green and red, I'd go with red. Reds actually have very similar ratings as the greens on Amazon, maybe even slightly better. The main difference between them is the reds have better error recovery but the main reason to get them is they have an extra year of warranty over the greens. I always do a full scan on all my drives a month before the warranty expires and I send back any of them that have errors just to get a fresh drive after the longest period...
It was a suggestion at using a cable that does the conversion for you rather than an adapter which would lead to two possible points of failure. I wasn't saying you HAVE to buy this cable. It was only an example, if the "maybe something like" part didn't go through.
Instead of an adapter, why not try a straight up cable? Maybe something like this http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Displayport-Thunderbolt-HDMI-Enabled-Compatible/dp/B00E964YGC/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1422531500&sr=1-5&keywords=mini+displayport+to+hdmi+2.0
Had a glitch. I closed the browser while having the options window open. I then closed the options window after. After that, opening up the browser would only bring up the options window but no browser. The only thing I could figure out was to reinstall. Tested it twice, it seems to be like that every time.
All replies have been repped, thanks a lot everyone. Now to find a way to afford 6tb reds
Yeah, these drives are for storage only and the most active the drives ever are, are when I transfer files back and forth. Second hardest thing they do is play 1080p movies/shows so it's not going to be of high actual use. They will be on for many hours a week though since I rarely turn my computer off. As you mentioned blacks having a longer warranty, I am aware but cannot afford to replace so many simple storage drives with blacks which is why I'm contemplating reds....
I am fully utilizing all of my sata ports including an 8 bay enclosure right now with 2tb WD green drives right now, aside from my SSD C: drive. Aside from needing to upgrade some of these drives to larger capacities, some of the drives are old, out of warranty, and some are showing 'caution' under crystaldiskinfo so some time in the near future I would like to start to slowly replace them. I do back everything up so every two drives has the exact same data on them. I do...
Well I run a 3930k so I'd need a discrete card. I was just mainly worried because the specs for my current secondary 450 says that the maximum resolution is 2560x1600. Without playing games, I know the 450 has enough grunt to push the resolution but didn't know if it has any software limitation that wouldn't allow it to recognize 3440x1440 which is why I was even thinking about the 750ti in the first place since the 700 series actually lists 4k as the maximum supported...
I want to get the LG 34UM95 as a secondary multitasking monitor around the end of the year. What Nvidia card would be recommended that could drive the monitor at 60hz? I will only be using it for non graphical work and will continue to game on my main 1080p TV for now until I upgrade it to a 4k monitor so raw horsepower is not an issue. It will mainly be used for multitasking internet tabs, paperwork and movies etc. so nothing demanding. I was thinking of getting the 750ti...
