Cable Management on Gaming PC Help? I am building a gaming PC and I use the NZXT Lexa S Mid-Tower case, the customer reviews on it are great but I can't manage my cables properly. The cables are too bulky and don't fit through the holes too well since there thin. I don't have a modular power supply so that might be the problem. I am not buying a new case anytime soon and I guess I am willing to change my PSU even though I just got it. If its my PSU then what new PSU should I get for under $100. I really want to work with what parts I have, does anybody have any tips for cable management? These are the links to my Case and PSU: Case: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=43210&vpn=LEXA%20S&manufacture=NZXT PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817159108&cm_re=coolmax_600w-_-17-159-108-_-Product

Which gaming computer case? Alright, I am finally down to deciding on my computer case, and there are apparently a lot of really good ones. I want to spend ~$100, can be a little higher if necessary. I will have: ATI HD 5870 AMD 965 3.4 ghz processor ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X 4 Gig G.Skill Ripjaws RAM I will be going probably with a mid tower case. I have pretty much narrowed it down to the Antec 900, the CM690 II Advance, LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 or the Cooler Master HAF 922. Any pros and cons for each would be appreciated, and any other case recommendations are welcome. Also, and idea of how much heat my system will produce and how many fans are needed to cool it well is appreciated, as this is my first real build with anything that really produces heat, lol. I am personally leaning towards the CM690 II due to its fan potential though I really like the completely tooless design of the lancool case, and I do not understand all the hype over the Antec 900. I personally do not care overly much for a clear side door and much prefer a mesh one, if one is there at all. So, let the suggestions begin. Or not.

Good first gaming PC Build Case? I'm still not sure whether or not I'll need full or mid, but the graphics card I'm getting (Nvidia GeForce 580) is quite long. Also, I may be using the Corsair H60, H80, or H100 in it, if I can fit them. Which cases are the best for looks/cooling for both the mid and full tower classes? I've looked at the antec df-85, the coolermaster haf x, the NZXT Phantom, and the Corsair Obsidian for full towers. For Mid I've only seen a few so far, like the NZXT Guardian. What do you recommend for a gaming build and OCing? (Meaning lots of cooling, but also quiet. Looks are important too, but obviously second to cooling and space.
Cheap Gaming PC help? I only have around a 500$ Budget, and everyone says, "If you want a good gaming PC, you gotta build it yourself" but when it comes to this stuff, I'm clueless on what's good and what's not.

My gaming PC build parts, should I go with it? So this is my first ever build and I'm new in this building stuff, so after alot of searching and learning I chose these parts to build my gaming PC, I'm aiming for a gaming PC that could could run BF3 on 50-60 average fps on medium to high settings ( btw I'm on a low budget ) so these are the parts I chose, I wanna know If I will have some compatibility issues or not with these parts ( specially the motherboard ), so should I go with it or do you have some suggestion ? - Processor : Intel Core i3-2100 ( http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i3-2100-Processor-3-1GHz-LGA1155/dp/B004JEVGMO ) - Graphic Card : GTX 560 OC ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127593 ) - Motherboard : ASUS M5A97 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131767 ) - HDD : WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533 ) - ram : Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3 1600 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428 ) - Case : http://www.amazon.com/Xion-Classic-Series-Case_Retail-XON-ECO01-RD/dp/B004NSUMNA - Power supply : CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028 ) So it appears that the motherboard I mentioned is AMD so I replaced it with this one ASUS "P8Z68-V LX" ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131781 ) so is it good ? and I also don't think it's a good idea for my money to go with Intel i5 2500k processor so I will stick with mine cause I have a friend with an Intel Core 2 Quad and it's working perfect for him ;) and I also prefer the GTX 560 and it's not a big difference between it and the ti version, and should I go with the Corsair Carbide Series 300R Black Steel case and why ?

Building a gaming computer? I'm rebuilding my desktop and I want to make it a great gaming computer. It's an emachines and to be honest, awful. It has 2gbs of RAM and that's awful. I'm wondering what all should I buy so it is just as good as a brand new gaming computer. The reason why i'm rebuilding it is because I was told by multiple of people that it's cheaper, a fun experience, it lasts longer and you can do it at your own pace. I know i need at least 16 gb of RAM and at least a 300 gb hard drive. I want to be able to play WOW or Guild Wars 2 on high res. with little to no lag. What should I buy? And I know I need a new processor. But have no idea what kind. And don't say "Buy a new one." I actually want help from a person who knows what they're talking about.
Trying to build a gaming PC? Hi, I'm trying to build a gaming PC, but I've never done this before. Basically, my objective is to build something that can run Battlefield 4 on Ultra Settings (maximum settings) with at least 60 fps. I've managed to find these parts on Amazon, but I'm not sure if they are compatible with each other, and It is kind of over my budget: - Case: Zalman Z11 Plus Midi Tower Case (ATX, M-ATX, Supports Bottom PSU Installation and Aperture for Cable Management, Anti-Vibration Rubber Stand) - Motherboard: Gigabyte SKT-AM3+ 990FXA-UD5 Motherboard (Rev 1.0) - Processor: AMD FX8350 Black Edition 8 Core Processor (4.0/4.2GHz, 8MB Level 3 Cache, 8MB Level 2 Cache, Socket AM3+, 125W, Retail Boxed) - RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL9 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Black - Graphics Card: Gigabyte NVIDIA GTX650Ti 2GB DDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card - HDD: Seagate Barracuda 3.5 inch 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB 6GB/S Internal SATA Drive - Power Supply: Corsair CX750 Builder Series CX 750W ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze PSU - DVD Drive: LG ELECTRONICS GH24NS95 LG (24X) DVD Rewriter SuperMulti with M-DISC Support (Internal) Are these parts compatible with eachother? Is this PC too good for what I need? Can you give me any websites with cheap prices? my budget would be of about 500$ maximum, excluding other peripherals or a monitor, just the pc itself. And i want a PC able to play battlefield 4 and other games on max settings, as well as connecting to the interest, record ad render videos for youtube and listen to music.

Questions on building a gaming PC? So I'm thinking about building a gaming PC once my tax return comes, and I'm totally new to this. Should I go with an intel processor, or should I choose a high end AMD? How much RAM is enough? 8? 16? What kind of video card should I choose? How much do I need to invest in the cooling system?

THANKS ps: this is my first pc to build together, and i know i maybe wont need as much RAM or whatsoever, just go with it This is not about whether I need it or not but rather if all the components together work
Questions on building my own gaming PC? So I've been building my own gaming PC for a few months now, and I'm buying the final parts tomorrow. However, I've come to the realization that I'm still clueless on a few topics. This is my first time building a PC, and I started this long task with absolutely no idea what I was doing, so don't judge. Here are some things I need clarification on: 1) Do I need a network card (or ethernet card?) to connect to the internet? Or could I just plug in the ethernet cable I've been using on my old PC? 2) I installed my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti about a week ago, and I'm confused about the DVI-I interfaces on the back. I know that that interface is used for the monitor, but why are there two? Also, what's the difference between using the DVIs on the GPU vs. the one on the motherboard? 3) Fans. I've got one connected to the motherboard, but I only had one adapter for that. So my two other case fans are connected to the PSU. How would I go about controlling each of my fans? If I can't control the ones connected to the PSU, how does the PSU determine RPM? 4) Any tips on cable management? Everybody's PCs in youtube videos look so clean... mine is a complete mess, and I'm worried that they could interfere with the large fan on the side casing. These are probably stupid questions to a lot of you, but I would appreciate the help.

Best mid-tower pc case around $70? Im building my first gaming pc and ive been all over newegg but the all the reviews disappoint me when I read the "cons" of the case according to people who've bought it.

Building a gaming PC? Ok, I need to know the best possible gaming PC parts (and links). The budget is $700 - $800.
What gaming case should I buy? Hello! Im going to be buying a gaming rig (the parts for one) very soon, but I can't decide what to get. There are so many choices and each one has good and bad points, but since this is my first ever gaming build, I don't know which will benefit me the most! The one I am looking at the most is the Corsair Carbide Series 500r. I like the look, and its in my price range. It also has good reviews. However, I am starting to feel that I might be maybe overpaying? Im not going to have any water cooling in my system or anything too extreme like that soo this might not be the case to get? (I don't know, it might be fine, but that is why I am asking here.) Ok, so here are my specs: CPU: i5 3570K GPU: EVGA 670 FTW MOBO Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H PSU: CM TX650M RAM: Corsair Vegeance 8GB HDD: WD 1TB Blue COOLER: Hyper 212 EVO What is a good case that I can get for under $120 that will work with this system, and hopefully wont give me any problems. (ALSO: I don't plan to be LAN partying so I wont be dragging this thing around with me until I move out. So I dont need a LAN party case with handles.) Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Which PC case is better? I'm building a Gaming PC in a few weeks and I am stuck between two cases. I wanted to know if anyone has had one of the two and had problems or anything. Or which one you think would be better quality. Or if you have any suggestions plese tell me. NXZT Phantom http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003WE9WQO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER Corsair 400r http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Carbide-Series-Computer-CC-9011011-WW/dp/B0055Q7BR4 Also do you think either of these would look good with leds in them even though they aren't windowed
Store bought PC specs for gaming? Ok I know building a gaming PC is better in so many ways, I just want to know about these specs from a store bought PC, the Info is what I can only see on the side of the box hopefully you can tell me how it is. Acer Aspire M3970G Windows 7 64 Bit CPU: Intel Core i5 processor 2320 Quad Core RAM: 8GB DDR memory HDD 1 TB Video: AMD Radeon HD7350 with 1GB VRAM The price of the PC is around $800 let me know if I can build a better PC around the same price Should have added I'm not very tech savvy. Hard to decide on a best answer for this cause i can't tell which is better.
Help me Choose a Gaming PC Case? I know I've asked this a few times, but I really want all my components to fit nicely and be cooled extremely well. I will be doing water cooling. Not to mention I'd like my first gaming rig to look spectacular! So I've narrowed it down to: Coolermaster Haf X Antec DF-85 Rosewill THOR V2 (White or Black, but no window - meaning I'd have to mod it) NZXT Phantom (another no window, meaning I'd have to mod it) Azz Solano 1000r Black (not sure about this one) NZXT Switch 810 (I didn't do much research on this yet, but it looks pretty cool) Corsair Obsidian Series 800D (Heard good things about corsair products, aside from the price) I'm not sure about modding a window though, is it hard? My planned water cooling is going to look great and I'd love to be able to see it... Other cases I've considered Thermaltake Level 10 GT (very costly and a little odd looking. heard the build quality wasnt superb. too bad because it has a lot of awesome features) Cooler Master Storm Trooper (don't like the look and haven't been impressed) AeroCool xpredator (Perfect look for me but can't find enough info on features/quality to justify spending the money to have it shipped from Germany on ebay, huge bummer) This is my first build and I don't want to do anything wrong. So please at least tell me the cases I can check off for liquid cooling, good temperatures, noise level, and low build quality. I'd also like opinions on certain cases being good or bad. I'm looking for: -circulation -fan power -low fan noise levels -hard drive bays -upgradability -room for liquid cooling -USB 3.0 as well as other ports (20 pin connections) -An appealing look (I'll probably add LEDs) -Build quality -Extra features (locks, dust filters, etc) Thank you very much for all of your help and opinions. :) Also I will be overclocking. Just an FYI.

Best Desktop PC case for 100$ ? I want a PC case for my build. My budget is 100$ US. I seriously prefer looks and style.The performance and airflow dont matter as the build will not be of high end components, more like a 600-700$ build. The brands I like are Corsair and CoolerMaster. I am currently interested in Corsair Carbide 400R and Cooler Master Storm Scout 2. Are they any good?

Is it worth it to build a computer or buy a prebuilt? Alright, i want to buy a new computer. I have some knowledge of how to put together a pc. I recently took an old one apart and tried to put it back together and it wont turn on probably because i didnt connect something. I also hate doing the cable management crap. So i am wondering, should i build my own or buy one from a site like ibuypower or cyberpowerpc?
Where can I get a PC gaming headset that does not have a cord that's a thousand miles long?

What wattage should I be looking for in a power supply for my PC build? I'm currently ready to purchase parts to build a new gaming PC and sadly, in the past, I've always had to ask for assistance with choosing a PSU/Power Supply. I want to go with Corsair for the brand as I hear really good things about them. I just cannot, for the life of me, figure out what wattage I need! Also, I do not plan on overclocking at all and if there are tips, formulas or references that may help me with this issue in the future they would be greatly appreciated. My current combine carts from Newegg/Tigerdirect are as listed below. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration! CPU - Intel i5 3570k MoBo - Asus P8Z77-V LX GPU - EVGA GTX 680 4 Gigabyte - Non OC'd RAM - 4 x 4 Gigabyte (16gb) 1600 mhz SSD - 60gb Intel SSD HDD - 2tb Seagate SSD Cooling - Corsair H70 (Is actually on sale for less than the H60)

Why would using an ethernet cord ruin my wifi connectivity? If I plug my ethernet cable into my laptop, disconnect from my house's wifi signal, then later remove the ethernet cable and reconnect to the wifi I have connectivity issues. I am always able to connect to the wifi signal, however I am unable to browse the internet. Curiously if I am signed into something like skype already as I make this transition and do not loose connection, I will still be able to send and receive typed messages. It will not disconnect me from hardly anything, however I can not load any webpages or begin new sessions with programs that require internet access. A simple reboot will fix it, however I'd like to prevent this altogether if I can help it. For the most part I have simply stopped using the cable, but sometimes I play games or download large files, and it's nice to have a little extra speed. Does anyone know what may be causing this?

Is this computer worth the money? I have been PC gamer for about 3 years, I have been running the same rig this entire time. I have tried keeping up with new parts, but haven't payed attention to the prices. My main issue at this point is that I REFUSE to build another rig. My brother and I built my last computer together and it ended in flames. Granted, we have become much better with building computers and cable management, I would like to keep this simple and buy an assembled rig. I did as much research as I could, but still feel like the price is a little high for the parts. The build I am focusing on at the moment is the "Revolt" by IBuyPower. The parts are as follows: IBuyPower Revolt Mini Tower Case i5-3570 Processor 4x 3.4 GHz/6MB L3 cache 8Gig G.Skill Ripjaw X (ram) Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 1Gig ASRock B75M-ITX (motherboard) 350 Watt - FSP 1U 80 Plus Certificated Power Supply 500Gig 7200RPM Standard Hard Drive (will be replaced by my current) 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Combo The computer comes with NO software and an unformatted hard drive. The final price of this build is 771$ US. I have researched each part enough to know that it proceeds my needs and wants from this computer. I am not looking for a "super computer", just a nice cheap build that will run my games at the highest quality. Do you guys think this computer is worth the money? Do you know of any other companys that can sell me the same or equivalent parts, and assembly, for cheaper?

So I'm looking to build a new pc, I have a build in mind and I have a couple of questions.? So I'm looking to build a new pc, I found a build that would suit me and my gaming needs, it looks like this: CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k 3.4 GHz Turbo Boost to 3.8 GHz (Might overclock to 4.4ghz) Motherboard: ASRock Extreme4 Z77 Socket 1155 Intel Z77 Chipset CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RAM: Kingston HyperX Genesis 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz HDD: Seagate Barracuda SATA3 6.0Gb/s 1TB 64MB Cache Power Supply: Thermaltake TR2 700W Cable Management Optimized Power Supply (TR-700) Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Case Fan: Cooler Master 200mm Red LED Silent MegaFlow Case Fan DVD Drive: ASUS Internal 24x DVD Writer Now, I already have a XFX Radeon HD 6870, I want to buy another one. So I can have dual video cards. So, should I stick with a 700w power supply? Or should I go up to 800w? If so, which one should I get, because I've searched and haven't found any ones that I like, or I'm unsure if its a good brand or whatever. Please answer my question. Thank you very much.

Need help with building a new computer? I built my first computer about 8 years ago when I was in college. Well it has finally gave out on me. I have not paid attention to computers since and need less to say I am now overwhelmed at all the new technology. I had an AMD mother board before. I remember at the time all the computer guys at my school favored them over Intel. But anyways here is what I need my new PC to do. I dont really play video games anymore but I did buy an HD video camera and have a bunch of footage that I want to be able to edit and burn to DVDs and Blue Rays. I have Sony Vegas as my editing program but I would like to one day in the near future get an animation program. My budget is $600-$800. Can anyone recommend any mother boards, CPUs, harddrives, Ram, etc.... From my research I think their are a couple different hard drives and someone recommended that I get the one that is faster for my programs and have the cheaper one for my storage. Any suggestions?
I want to give my ps3 to sony for warranty. What happens to my data?!?!? I bought a PS3 8 months ago from letsbuy.com,India. Yup, from India. So, it worked fine for 7 months. But since the previous month I am facing a problem. What I did was shift my ps3 from my monitor to my tv. I plugged the hdmi in. NO SIGNAL. I turned it off. Switched it back on. Shook the hdmi cable. NO SIGNAL. The heck?! I became worried and took it back to my monitor,thinking it must be my tv's problem but hey. Guess what? NO SIGNAL. I panicked. I searched for my warranty card but didn't find it. I became REAALLLYYY worried now. Then I searched on the net and I found the double beep solution. I held my power button. It tuned green,beeped, then beeped twice and shutdown. Then I started it again and I reached the recovery menu. But the option was already set to load from HDMI. THEN, I unplugged my HDMI cable with a broken heart and plugged my AV cable in. I started the PS3. Voila, it DID start. Then I bought a new HDMI cable and plugged it in. But the same problem. It wasn't the problem of my cable as it did connect my PC with my monitor and TV. Now, a day ago I actually FOUND my warranty card after playing with my PS3 on AV mode for a month. I don't like my PS3 on AV mode. Ok, now I will give it to Sony BUT, I have exactly 178GB of data on my PS3. I read on the net. They said that data could be backed up but be transferred back to the SAME ps3 using the backup utility. And by the transfer utililty it could be transferred from one PS3 to other. But when i told sony about my problem they said that they won't repair the ps3. They would replace it. So, my question is,that what will happen to my huge amount of data stored on my ps3 once I give it for servicing? Because I don't want to download 178GB of data with my 1mbps internet plan. And if this helps, I have a ps plus membership. I don't want the save games. I have ps plus so the data is synced online with the cloud. I have just games which I downloaded from the ps store. It occupies 178GB in total. Help guys. PLEASE HELP ME AND yeah, do add me on PSN ;) - anirudh2308. THANKS A TON IN ADVANCE!!!!

Why is cable management for Gaming PCs important? I do understand that it allows for better airflow but does it really drastically effect how good the airflow is or is it mainly just aesthetics?

Is this good cable management in my case? ( Lol )? http://img708.imageshack.us/i/picture011pe.jpg/ and http://img694.imageshack.us/i/picture010p.jpg/ I customized this PC in 2006 and it still runs great! I get good FPS in most new games and source games as well. Do I need to change anything? My real problem is the temps sometimes during the day. I get around 50 to 60c during idle on my 7900GT/KO and around 48c on CPU at idle. Is there anything I can use to cool them? My case is pretty bad and it needs replacing. Do you think if I do that I can reduce the temps? Maybe aftermarket coolers. One more thing, Is my cable-management good or does it need more? Thanks. Forgot to add, that thing by the video-card is actually a fan I purchased 4 years ago and it's been keeping some temps down. Would I need an aftermarket cooler for the VGA and CPU? Maybe even a harddrive cooler as well? As well as I just got the 120fan working too, which is lowering some temps as well.

Need PC Case Suggestions? I am in the process of ordering parts to build a new gaming rig, but I can't find exactly the case I'm hoping to find... wondering if anyone might know of one that fits my stipulations :) I want a mid tower with side vent, plenty of air flow and a couple fans, air filter to keep the dust out, cable management, preferably tool-free (but I don't want chintzy pieces that break off or rattle loose either, I'm still hoping for sturdy). USB and audio jacks on the front. I don't need lights or transparent windows, nor do I need tons of drive bays, and I'm buying a separate power supply so I don't need one included. I guess that basically covers everything. I've been on newegg and various sites clicking through hundreds of cases, and though many have MOST of these qualities, none have ALL of them. Any suggestions??
PC TECH people!!!!! Is this power supply enough to run this video card? I bought a Coolmax M-500B 500W Eps Power Supply with 5 Sata Connectors ATX12V & EPS12V to run a PNY GeForce 9800 GT 512MB graphics card to play the sims 3. Only after I ordered these on amazon did I find out that this card requires something like 24A on 12V rails. (All I was told was that I needed a 500 watt psu for this card.) Not sure if this power supply has that. Is it that neccessary for the sims 3? I doubt the game will be very demanding on this card. Any way heres some info on this PSU. I myself don't know what to make of it. Black CoolMax 500W EPS Computer Power Supply M-500B, 20+4 pin, Supports SATA & PCI Express, with 120mm Silent Fan and Fan Control. SKU: 14622.

RCA analog audio VS HDMI digital audio? Ok, inspired by my friend who hooked up a vintage 1980s Fisher amplifier powering 2 vintage loudspeakers and a sub via RCA to mini to his PC. The results audio-wise was phenomenal. Since I have no room for vintage loudspeakers nor have smaller speakers that can match his, I have to resort to a 5.1 consisting of 2 90's Sony Stereo( one pair 200 watts, other 80 watts) speakers, an AWA 100 watt center, and a polk audio psw10 subwoofer, and a 5.1 500 watt channel receiver with HDMI. I wanna know which setup will get better sound quality cause I listen to music, watch videos, and play games mostly, and the PC cover the video quality part, so I'm only worrying about audio quality. Now, should a I get an RCA to mini for each audio input on my integrated soundcard (Cost me about $50 for multiple RCA to mini cables) or should I just get my HDMI cable, stick it in my videocard or monitor, and have surround sound already. I don't mind cable management (I'm very organized with that), I just wanna know which will give me better audio quality coming from my PC
Is this everything I need for a working computer with wireless access? I'm building my own PC and I need to know whether or not this is everything I need and if it's all compatible.

Will an external dvd drive play games? I am fixing to do some upgrades on my PC. I'm starting with cosmetic's and cooling until i get my income tax and will then be purchasing a GTX 560ti as well as some other things. I just purchased the NZXT M59 case as I had been wanting it for quite some time. I was planning to place my internal DVD-RW in the top 5.25mm bay but had read that the M59 has a design flaw. If you decide to place 2 case fans in the top slots, your disk drive won't fit in the top 5.25mm bay. Not a huge issue but a little annoying. I was planning on buying a new DVDRW drive anyway as my current one is still IDE and wanted a SATA for better cable management. I was thinking about it though and realized I could probably just buy an external usb drive and use it when I need it as I normally buy digital copies of my games/software anyway. But a few game's that I have physical copies of require that the disk be in the drive in order to play. Would those game's still detect the disk being in a USB drive?
cpu and gpu temperatures high? pc setup: antec 900 case + additional 120mm side fan blowing gpu amd 965 cpu + freezer 7 pro heatsink xfx 5850 gpu 750w corsair psu 4gb ripjaws RAM my question is, why is my gpu and cpu so hot when playing games? when im not playing, my cpu stays at 27-32C and gpu stays at 31-33C. when im playing games, my cpu jumps to 36-47C and gpu jumps to 40-54C. my cable management is good and the case has very good ventilation especially with the heatsink fan blowing hot air upwards with the 200mm exhaust fan pushing the hot air out of the case. so why are the temperatures so high?

Monitor Goes off while playing Games !!! Please Help !!!? I've bought a new graphics card Sapphire Radeon 7870 OC edition. My system psu is Thermaltake Tough power XT 675Watt. I am using Windows 7 64bit. But the problem is from last 3 days when I playing games like Just cause 2 / Modern warfare 2 / Bf3 etc, after playing some time (like 30mintues - 2 hours) my monitor automatically turns off. When I turn it on its showing "No signal" and it remain off But my Cpu Keeps running, keyboard, mouse everything on but my monitor shows no signal and its turn off. I Can't understand what could be the problem. I am using an AOC 22 inch Full HD monitor. It has 1 VGA port, 2 HDMI port (No DVI port). So I am using HDMI connection from my card to my monitor. I've updated the driver also. I have catalyist 12.4 installed. My gpu temperature is showing ok 35-40 C at idle. I am not overclocking eigther my Cpu or my gpu. My casing is well ventilated also. It has 3, 90mm fan and 1, 120mm fan. Please Guys help me what could be the problem??? Monitor goes black when playing games and turn off immediately. When I turn it on it shows no signal and going off again. If I restart my cpu, monitor not truning on. Monitor only turn on when I power off the whole system and turn on whole system again. I've changed my HDMI Cable and its fine. Monitor also running fine unless I play game. I am playing all game at high details (bf3 on ultra). I think this problem is for heavy gpu load though I am not sure. I have checked every power management system and turn off all option that can cause my monitor going to sleep. Please help me guys !!! With all high settings every game runs Smoothly but suddenly it goes black and monitor going off. Should I RMA my Card?? Please anyone HELP me with this weird ISSUE.

Can I safely disable windows firewall if my router already has a firewall? I have a Netgear DG834GUv5 wireless router and a small LAN. I have constant small networking issues mostly with the internet cafe management software(Mycybercafe) I use and failed connections with some older games(Age of Empires II/ Need for speed IISE, Quake Arena etc) when played on a network. I want to try an just disable the windows firewall on all the PC's (which the router documentation advices because it has its own firewall) but am not too confident about this. Do any people who are experts in network and internet security no if this is safe. I have Avira Free running on all PC's Windows XP Pro sp2 and have PC's attached both with wireless cards and cable. (if thats relevant, i don't know)

Laptop runs at 83% CPU 100% of the time? I have an used 09 compaq cq50 that runs Vista. On my old desktop, which is also a compaq, would run at 5-20% (but it was XP). It also had less than 30 processes running, and this laptop had more than 70 running. I've got that paired down to 59, but now I'm not sure what all is necessary or not. What do I do? Is this normal for a laptop? First laptop I've ever owned. Do I have a virus? I ran a check and it found *nothing*. I also cleaned up the registry (which had 2,500 errors). I mainly use it to watch shows on the internet, and my husband plays some sort of space game on it. I don't care about wireless internet, networking, making movies, I don't have a printer. I've got one of those bluetooth usb thingies plugged in, and it's cable internet.

Press the Ps button to try to restart the system. If the system cannot be restarted, the system partition off the hard disk must be reformatted and you must reinstall the system software.

why is my internet router undetected? please help!!!!? i am connected to the internet (obviously =] ) but some of my applications on my computer say that my internet is not connected. My router company is called NETGEAR, and I put the informational cd that it comes with, and it said that all of my cables are connected but my router is undetected and is not receiving any signals. This can be due to firewall blocks (mine are currently disabled), Antisecurity (currently of as well), or computer management issues. I am asking this because I just recently bought Civilization 5 for the PC, and in order to play that game you need to have an internet connection via STEAM. STEAM cannot connect to the internet, as it says there is so connection, so I cannot even download the $50 game I just bought. Also, my internet security will not work because it says there is no connection. I have tried so many things and I cant seem to find anything that is blocking my internet from reaching these applications. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful! Thank you!!!
