    An Incredibly Strange Firefox Grey Screen Issue

    Using the latest Nvidia drivers 310.54 Still haven't managed to fix the issue. :/
  2. Hey guys I have an interesting issue with Firefox I am running the latest non beta version. When I move my mouse to the bottom left part of the screen so the cursor is touching the edge of the screen and is along the side of the Windows start button my screen goes grey sometimes it flashes grey sometimes it will stay grey for a few seconds but the moment I move my mouse out of the corner my screen goes back to normal. On some websites it stays grey for longer and on other it hardly goes grey at all. So what the heck is going on?? I have run a scan with Microsoft security essentials which found nothing. Opening firefox in safe mode seems to resolve the issue but as far as I can tell no plugins/addons are causing the issue. If anyone has any ideas please let me know :) Thanks

    I don't think you really need something as big as an 800D or the TJ07 t's just gonna be a waste of space. I like my P280 a lot it's quiet, has good cable management and if you add a fan (or two) to the front of the case it has good cooling. The Fractal Design R4 looks very nice and if you need to extra room then like Poison said the XL is a good quiet choice.

    I've used a Sapphire 7870 which was very quiet and cool its fans even under full load never went over 40% so the Sapphire 7970 should be pretty quiet also.

    Battlefield3 first thoughts.

    I've used http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_p...roducts_id=6607 right away I could fly without flying into stuff or going crazy with the mouse. even the helicopter is much easier. I was looking at the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick is looks pretty decent for its price. It's $50 NZD which is nice. I can fly pretty well with a mouse and keyboard just aiming with jets is what I suck at..

    Do any of you guys use a joystick? Are they helpful for flying I'm pretty good with a jet using keyboard and mouse but a joystick looks like a lot of fun.

    Ok well he has increased his budget and so this is what I have replaced: Gigabyte AMD 7870 i5 3570K ASUS p8z77-m 8GB Muskin RAM Intel 330 180GB SSD Seasonic X560 PSU NZXT Havik 140 cooler Still going to use same case as it looks very nice, dvd drive is needed. So how does it look? And I also have another quick question what are the AMD APU's specifically the A8-3870K like for gaming? I'm putting together a super low budget WoW, GW2 and Facebook build together for a girl I'm considering using the A8-3870K or 3670K along with a 7750. She doesn't care about graphics and plays a 1680x1050.

    From PCCG FAQ: Do you ship internationally? At this time we only ship within Australia. Also buying parts internationally makes me nervous because if parts where to arrive DOA it's going to be a massive pain in ass to ship them back and get it fixed. Both shops are less than 20 min drive away so pick up is no problem. For 8GB this G.Skill RAM is the cheapest at $85 it's still $35 extra. Unfortunately an SSD is just to expensive maybe in the future he could upgrade and get one. As for whether he is willing to spend extra on that gold FSP Aurum PSU, 8GB RAM and whether or not he needs a DVD drive I will ask. And I never ever buy non modular PSU's cable management is just to difficult with them. Other than that thanks for the help!

Here is what I have put together: i5 3470 ASUS P8B75M 4GB G.Skill 1333Mhz 9-9-9-24 RAM Seagate Barracuda 500GB HDD ASUS 7770 Silverstone Strider 500W PSU Silverstone TJ08B-E ASUS DVD Drive Don't need Win7 Not going to overclock anything so I don't need Z77. Basically I just want to know if there is anything I should change/add the budget for this PC is $1050 NZD. The websites we use is www.computerlounge.co.nz and www.playtech.co.nz Thanks

    If you want a good cheap modular PSU the Seasonic M12II 520W is ok http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_p...oducts_id=15957 It's cheaper than the antec one but it's not as efficient. So it's really your choice whether you want modular bronze rated psu or non modular high efficiency psu personally I would stick with the Antec unit as it's very good. Also you can't overclock on a b75 chipset
