  • Does Walmart sell ddr4 ram in store?

    Best answer: Most likely no, it's a little too specialized a product to sell in most stores. Try Walmart.com though.

    I have a GeForce Gt 610 ddr3 1gb at around 850mhz I think. It was a beginning card for to get it to work with my tv since I didn’t have a monitor. I was wonder if I got a GT730 ddr5 4gb 128 bit card would work better with frames and resolution for games. Now that my budget is a “little” better I can afford a better card. Any suggestions for a similar price around 50 dollars since this one is 50. My cpu is a i5 2400 quad core. I got 8gb ddr3 1333mhz and a 500 watt gpu. The mobo is a dq67sw intel brand.

  • My computer breaks irregularly.?

    Best answer: First, I would most definitely invest in a good quality surge protector if your pc hardware is either expensive or in any way worth saving.

    Best answer: First, I would most definitely invest in a good quality surge protector if your pc hardware is either expensive or in any way worth saving. Second, a test of the power supply, like Spock said, could resolve the issue. Have a technician do that. You can DIE if you don't know what you are doing. Third, if your OS is hung up, it will either be insufficient power as mentioned before or, if PSU is functional, you need to reinstall your OS. But from the sounds of it that shouldn't be necessary. That hang tends to happen after a power surge or related events and you just need to reboot with fully functional hardware.

  • What is making my computer shut down?

    Best answer: Sounds like the only difference between when you're using it and the way the shop tested it is the extension lead or whatever it is you're using. Test is as they suggested, plugged directly into the wall. If it works fine then it is clearly the lead you've been using.

    Best answer: What is the room temperature? 60C is a totally safe temp. But if your PC is sitting totally idle and at 60c then this could mean much higher temps under load. According to AMDs website is states that the max temp is 61c, which is craziness(stupid) they also state that the 220w 9590 max temp is 57c and from what i hear those are more space heater than CPU so I dont know what they are talking about here i feel anything below 80c is safe. I have a AMD FX 8320E heavily Overclock and run my temps to the low 70s under stress testing and never have a problem might shave off 10 years of life but CPU are made to last 30 years and are obsolete in 5 years. Things to try as David has said go blow the case out with air, if you have a portable fan place it in front of an intake fan and see if that cools the system if it does grab a case fan off newegg or amazon and problem solved. Also check different programs and make sure they all read the same I use HW monitor and have great results.
