    Is it worth Me buying this?

    Windows 8 has been out for a while now, so all major problems should be solved. You can also change the UI to look like Windows 7. That laptop will and should play YouTube videos with any problems, will be fine for internet browsing, work documents and "basic" games.

    [Solved] Second HDD - Foreign - XP Pro - XP Home – Pentium 4, 3.4 GHz

    Anything with a 478 socket would work, that are similar specs to yours. This should be okay: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/intel-pentium-4-socket-478-prescott-core-28ghz-512kb-l2-cache-69w-oem -Vr

    [ Solved ] DELL PC will not work

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. The message "closing down to prevent damage" from my knowledge only occurs if your PC is overheating, generally the CPU. If the CPU gets above 90 Celsius (ish) most computers and laptops will auto shut down to prevent damage, or further damage. This is caused by...

    GPU reccomendation

    A GTX 660 would be an average upgrade. Nothing too serious but should suit your needs well. Something like this. http://www.ebuyer.com/396967-gigabyte-gv-n660oc-2gd-660-gv-n660oc-2gd The 660 is now an average video card. Mine was nearly twice the price on release. -Vr

    Favourite Android Apps

    Advanced task killer. MX Player... I have to say I am really disappointed in my Galaxy S3... Really slow and frustrating sometimes. Even with nothing running.

    PC build help needed

    Hi. Having a £1000 price tag doesn't mean much. I am more than happy to dig around but I would look away on building your first own for 1k. You can get decent "pre-built" by companies, but do you need the whole setup? Like a monitor, mouse/keyboard, speakers, or a desk/chair? If those are...

    Can i run this graphics card?

    No. Intel and AMD need different types of mother board. The AMD 6-core will need a AM3 socket type, which is what you have listed. The Intel i5 need a LGA 1150 socket type. -Vr

    Revving sound coming from power cell

    Just to clear up first, Powercell = PSU? If you replaced the PSU, this shouldn't be the cause of the problem. A revving sound in my experience is a fan issue, and then no display as well as the noise may indicate a graphics card issue, if you have one installed. Are you able to check all...

    Can you guys take a look at my build and see if there's any red flags?

    Yeah, all looks sweet. Clearly it's a gaming build, so personally that case is too small and the PSU may not be reliable enough for what it will run. I would spend a little more on case and PSU. The case is going to have a lot of hot running parts inside, so the larger the case the better the...

    How much is my pc worth?

    In my honest opinion, it wouldn't be worth the hassle trying to sell it. You would be better off keeping it as a spare. You would fetch very little for it, in the current market.
