Hey /sqt/ a little video card advice if you will.
Looking to buy my gf a new card for her setup; currently she has a GTX 560 TI, now would we get more power for my money with another 560 in SLI or going for a 960 or 970?'
She's a digital artist mostly using Photoshop, Krita, Mischief, Autodesk, Manga Studio, etc..

Wouldn't that be a downgrade from what we currently have?

Say I were installing Arch and had to partition my drive. What would a good resource for determining the pros and cons of different configurations and filesystems be? I could just Google it but I'd prefer a link from someone who knows what they're doing. It's one of the few things I still don't really understand about the install process.

Run a SuperantiSpyware scan in safe mode. Windows 8 doesn't run as well on AMD processors, they tend to hang a lot. Please provide your system specs.

What's the problem ?
Get Microsoft toolkit to activate it but be aware from where you download it so your PC doesn't get filled with malware

the game was made ten years ago
what do you think is wrong
>>
>>46805306
Have you tried fiddling with the game settings
>>
>>46805016
Brand new installation fully updated. Have ran sfc/ scannow

i7 4790k @ stock.
8GB ram.
840 evo 120GB.
Bunch of HDDs.

>>46805119
Stick it all in one partition. Or allocate 10-20GB for root and give the rest to home. You're now an expert.
>>
>>46805306
Try lowering settings to lowest possible, also if your on windows trying running in compatibility mode if its an old game.
>>
>>46805337
yeah I disabled all the graphical settings and it still does that
>>
>>46805400
Install XP on an VM, run it on that.
>>
>>46805400
How old is the game? Try compatibility mode or whatever its called

I was looking for a (couple of) monitor(s) with a similar pixel density to my 27" 1440p monitor.

Checked my emails for deals on newegg and they suggested the model on the right.
But I don't see it when I look for it... Can someone explain?

Stratch that. Put it all in one partition. Slipped my mind that arch was rolling release.

What's the best program for my tv tuner on linux?
Basically something that has the functionality of Windows Media Centre (but without the shitty .wtv extension)
I just want to watch television on my computer and auto record shit based on program name/when it airs, etc..

Take a look at your windows event log, just type into search view event logs. open it up, open the windows logs sub menu on the left hand side, select system, now on the right hand side create a custom view, tick critical, warning and error, organize results by time, does anything stand out, specifically relating to services crashing?
>>
>>46805445
Perhaps it isn't $99 anymore? Try the search bar.

Why does my cpu usage jump to 50-80% on Chromium when I'm viewing a flash video? It's only that high when I'm viewing it, if it's just running in a background tab, the cpu usage is normal.

I'm on Linux.

>>46805521
Flash is a piece of shit?

it very-well exists as that price, but doesn't show up when searching for it by screen size.

I'm thinking it has to do with the fact that the specifications don't list the screen size.

I was only curious.

hi /g/
i bought a samsung tablet (SM-T110) that came with 4.2.2 jelly bean android. I believe the tablet is also filled to the brim with botnet and bloatware. I never used android before in my life, nor any sort of GNU/Linux.
The stupid question is: how do I "format" it and upgrade to a clean 4.x kitkat without bloatware and botnet? I want freedoms, guys.

>>46805591
I'm not buying the piece of shit monitor in my images, I was just curious as to why I didn't see it in filter results.
