Hi.My PC comes with Gibyte b365 hd3 atx 1151 motherboard (I think it has 4 memory slots and dual channel) and Corsair DDR4 2x8GB 2666 RAM, PNY RTX 2070 SUPER TRIPLE FAN graphics and supernova 650 gold power supply. I want to expand to 32GB and I wanted to know: 1. With the previous configuration is it possible / recommended to expand to 32GB? 2. Do I have to expand with the same configuration (2x8GB) and with the same RAM?If not, I listen to recommendations. 3. Could I install the new RAM myself?Is it difficult considering that I never installed one?Any tutorial? Thank you.

Hello!! i am trying to install windows 10 on a assembled pc. The problem is that I find myself in a paradoxical situation: the BIOS sees me the key only if formatted in GPT format, however it warns me that it cannot be used because "This drive can only boot in UEFI mode. It can not boot in BIOS / Legacy mode. ". He tells me to redo the key in MBR format, but when I do this I can't find it anymore at startup.

Yo guys, I have a rig for those looking for a massive gaming PC under 100K, you can overlock it and can run most games under 'Ultra' settings or if not then definitely under 'High' settings and it might perform better than your 150K Alienware, so here go: CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Corsair H55 57.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Motherboard: MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition ATX LGA1150 Motherboard RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 960 2GB Video Card Cabinet: NZXT Source 530 ATX Full Tower Case Power Supply: Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer OS: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit (OEM) (64-bit) Wired Network Adapter: TP-Link TG-3468 10/100/1000 Mbps PCI-Express x1 Network Adapter Wireless Network Adapter: Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I 802.11a/b/g/n/ac PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter Case Fan: Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition 67.8 CFM 140mm Fan Monitor: LG 22MP55HQ-P 60Hz 22.0" Monitor Keyboard & Keyboard Bundle: Cooler Master CM Storm Devastator Gaming Bundle Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse Headphones: Logitech G430 7.1 Channel Headset Speakers: Logitech Z313 25W 2.1ch Speakers Grand total: $1380.23 (Rs. 87875.72 at the time of poating this thread) And what's the good thing? The good thing is that now you don't need anything else to complete the build and you can play games on it as soon as you build it, this contains everything and the build is very flexible too! See the build price and buy it if you like: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/XXF7Bm And the same build with Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($1493.79 or Rs. 95199.16 at the time of posting this): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qPhCcf Note: You have to buy the build from Amazon.com (Well, it ships to India) because some parts weren't available in Indian online stores so, yeah, that's it, enjoy and show off in front of your friends with such an affordable price (Well, only for some hardcore and rich gaming fans)

AMD seems to have slowly let out rumoured launch dates and prices on its new series of cards that are supposedly better that the GTX 9xx series! The fact that these new cards come with HBM over GDDR5 is something that sounds amazing! Can't wait to see some real benchmarks!
If I want to mirror videos from my laptop to a television wirelessly - for either presentations or watching movies, how should I do this? I know how to mirror videos from my phone to my PC, for example, but what do I need if I want to watch a film, and don't have a HDMI cable?

Recently I changed my flat and moved to a new location. Transported my PC. It was a short travel and I was in the car. I can assure no major or fatal shakes were encountered during the transport. Now, coming to topic. Connected my PC last night and booted it.It kept on restarting on boot itself. Let me give you exact details.... Switch on power button--> PSU is on, fan movingCabinet fans movingMOBO light is onInitial POST code is 90 Within 3 sec. it changes code to 99 and restartsIn this duration power did not come to my KBD and Mouse (using Razor Cyclosa and they have a blue LED which obviously lights on if power is on) My guess is1>the PC is not getting enough power. Its normal plug point. Should I try a high AMP power soket? 2>The CMOS battery is the culprit.Any way to check? 3>The PSU itself is gone.But is was working perfectly even two weeks back! b/w no beeps were heard though in this whole time. Any lead guys? I'm at a loss what to look for.
