DON'T EVER be so quick to let someone take over your pc using team viewer, especially people you don't really know, even if they are expert helpers from a good reputation site like this, it is way to easy for them to install something and seriously compromise your systems security. (honest helpers would refuse anyway.)


there are better ways to let people know exactly what the pc hardware and software specs are of your pc, without a chance of compromising your pc with malware.


use something like speccy, cpuid or hwinfo and post a screenshot or logfile so the people can see exactly what's in your pc.

more info on such tools here :- http://pcsupport.abo...ation-tools.htm

when downloading software don't use links from that site or any 3rd party sites to actually download the software you want to try out always use google (or whatever your search engine of choice is.) and get the software directly from the makers sites whenever possible.

nothing against that site but it just best practice to always try and get your software directly from the makers to lessen the chances of malware.


let us know how it works out for you but i think you'll be happy with the performance gains of the r9 280x.

OK, couple of things to check.

Whichever card you eventually choose, please check the length of the card to ensure it will fit in the case.

Your selected store has a limited selection, or priced higher then other outlets.(will they do a price match?) http://www.microcent...o cards&Ntk=all


this would be my choice, > http://www.ncixus.co...te&promoid=1413

Been a while since we heard from you.   Did you perform your upgrade?   Were you happy with the results?   An update would be appreciated.
