I've been out of the hardware scene for a long time so I'm wondering if any of you can help me. These should have been two separate posts but I'll attempt to tackle them both in one. First, problem with my computer. Windows freezes, I reboot back into Windows, freezes again. Computer is now no longer detecting any peripherals (mouse, keyboard, monitor, etc), however... My computer still powers up and everything in my machine LOOKS functional. What could be the issue? Second, I've had this computer for four years now and it's struggling with a lot of new games. I figure it's probably time to upgrade anyway. So if I'm looking to buy a new computer, what should I be looking for? I've built all my machines in the past but I'm not sure if I have the skill to tune them for performance anymore. Maybe with your assistance I'll be able to. Build me a computer for gaming. Although I do plan on purchasing a new computer, I would like to fix my current computer and use it for something else. halp.
