    Aurora R3 video card recommendations

    I just picked up the MSI GeForce GTX 760. So I hope that works. According to a few online posts it works although it's not officially supported. I called Dell and according to them they are not supporting the R3 motherboard s anymore so there is absolutely no chance of an updated Bios....figures.

    Aurora R3 video card recommendations

    Howdy all. Quick question, i need a new video card and so i picked up the R9 270X with 2GB of GDDR5. Problem is it is not compatible with the Aurora R3 stock dell motherboard. I would like to stay under $300 and have to have at least 2GM of memory. For some reason i thought the R9's were...

    Thank you play you have been a big help even though it is still not running properly. I swapped out the motherboard after I started having issues and did a fresh install of Windows and formattedmy main drive. After that didn't work I reinstalled the original mobo. I updated the bios quite...

    Help! New motherboard died.

    No I just had about 5 programs going. I already ordered the power supply so I will find out when I swap it out if that was the culprit. If not then it's the SSD or the chip! And an update for my psu order from the wonderful company dell! I ordered on Sunday and paid for the overnight shipping...

    Help! New motherboard died.

    Yes the Asus Case is pretty sweet. It has a little lighting on the bottom of the front that changes from blue to red when in turbo mode but most likely i will go with Corsair or Raidmax. As far as finding something similar to an Aurora case with the lighting I think im out of luck, but I guess...

    Help! New motherboard died.

    Upload a picture of your sons rig. I would live to see it. That was my only concern with the Raidmax, the quality. I like the antec and the Corsair and as far as the budget I just wouldn't want to go over the $200 mark for a case. I know it's smarter to get a $100 case and put that money into a...

    Help! New motherboard died.

    Thanks play, I order a new power supply from Dell but I can honestly say that since they bought Alienware the quality has degraded. You used to be able to customize almost everything when you purchased the computer, now you can't, customer service at Dell is absolutely horrible and you almost...

    Help! New motherboard died.

    Well i put my old motherboard back in and it booted up just fine. I will check the voltage in Bios but the main problem i do not see being a PSU. I took out my second video card to lessen the power load also. This all started due to my work program freezing so I just uploaded a video of...

    Help! New motherboard died.

    I have been having issues since last week where it seems my computer is having problems when trying to save information. My work program is fairly large and it uses a good amount of resources so that is when I notice the problem the most. The Windows save or thinking spinning circle is popping...

    Aurora R3 motherboard upgrade socket recommendations.

    It might happen seeing as I just installed the new motherboard and it was still doing the same thing. The other bad news is that only after 2 boots the new motherboard seems to have died already. It was a Gigabyte Motherboard . Intel Z77 LGA-1155 Micro ATX DDR3 GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP. Loaded everything...
