The 2 very old APC units I have...

UPS Backup device

I know APC is pretty popular name brand UPS backup but they seem over priced. Does anyone recommend another brand that might work as well for a lower cost. Looking in the $200-$300 range.

Re: Win7 32 to 64?

I see you got it working..Awesome. I was going to suggest installing Windows 10 64bit your Windows 7 key should work to install windows 10. Microsoft makes it pretty easy to create a Windows 10 install USB or DVD now- it will even work without getting activated so you can at least test out the syste...

Does anyone here mine Cryptocurrency with nvidia cards

I recently found that mining crypto I can recoup the cost of a Nvidia card in about 3-4 months. I've since purchased 2 GTX1080 cards and am bringing in about $14/day after electric is paid. Just curious if anyone else is and what luck have you had.

Re: GTX 1070 - no display

I ordered some nylon standoffs. I figured it was shorting out - one thing after another with this card. Sending the GPU back today. One good thing was since all these problems and having to go back on Newegg to get an RMA going I noticed the MB is now offering a free DDR4 8GB kit with purchase. I on...

Re: GTX 1070 - no display

I updated the BIOS and MSI support thought that might do the trick.. it did not :( . I am due for a refresh anyway so just picked up a new CPU, MB and RAM.

Re: GTX 1070 - no display

well the problem is a catch-22. I cant install the nVidia drivers unless it detects the card, I cant use the card since no video output. no integrated graphics on MB either. I went on MSI forums and there is a chance that a BIOS update will allow the MB to see the card. Worst case I get a new MB, CP...
