Re: Serviio (Playing Movies/TV shows on smart TV (DLNA))

Serviio has been going great for me on my PS3 - however sometimes (and very randomly) the streaming from my PC just lags up, every 2 secs it will pause for a second, almost likes its buffering..however its only on a local wireless network, so I wouldnt think there should be much (if any) delay. Any...

Serviio (Playing Movies/TV shows on smart TV (DLNA))

Hey guys, I've had a smart TV for ages now, only today have I discovered the amazing ability of Serviio. Until now I've been using Samsung Allshare (It's a Samsung TV) and it's been horrible. Downloaded and installed Serviio tonight and it's the best thing out there I reckon for streaming wirelessly...

Re: I'm buying a new computer hooray

So does the K come with better stock cooling or something? That's a really interesting article. Reading more, this shows the 2700k at 3.5GHz being pretty competitive to those more expensive chips in benchmarks, and here shows how close 2550K is in gaming too. The place I'm buying my parts at doesn't...

Re: I'm buying a new computer hooray

Probably wouldn't bother overclocking it to be honest, last time I OC'd a piece of hardware it died a couple of months later :( Reckon I should just go for the i7 if I'm not gonna OC? the i7 2600 is $289, or $308 for the 2600K. Also, what is this K business? Didn't have these last time I built my PC...

Re: I'm buying a new computer hooray

Thanks Deman! Yeah there's no rush, been looking into building my own too, the price differences etc. I think I'll have to build it to get a perfect system though :( I was thinking of http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA_Series/ENGTX560_Ti_DCII_TOP2DI1GD5/ for a GPU, not too expensive and seems...

Quick hardware question

Yo, So basically I'm running Q6600 quad core CPU, 720W PSU, 4870 GPU, 2 x 2GB RAM, Asus p5Q mobo. Thinking of upgrading GPU to a GTX560, would that take too much power you reckon? Would I need to upgrade my PSU too? Cos if so, cbf. Found a GTX560 for $200, probably really standard but it's still an ...

Re: Any1 tried http://buygamecdkeys.com/ ??

I guess that one day you buy stuff off them? :P I don't anymore since these sites have been appearing, their prices are too close to retail prices. I guess Steam attract publisher money still because so many people use the platform, and it's the best digital platform for games still, despite EA wit...
