comment Is ATI Radeon HD 7870 compatible with GA-G41M-Combo motherboard?
PCIe 3.0 is backward compatible, though some motherboards have needed compatibility patches in the firmware to support newer cards. But...isn't SC2 mainly CPU-bound? Won't your E5300 be the thing that's holding you back?

comment New video card HIS 7790 OC 1GB: sytem doesn't boot
I won't argue that the power supply is a potential issue, but the TDP of the 7790 is only 85W...there should be enough power, unless the PSU is faulty or so old it can't deliver it's labelled 20A/20A on the 12V rails. (Getting a brand new good quality PSU would be a great option even if it isn't the problem).

@Alex, sorry, was just double-checking since it didn't explicitly say "no post" at the time. Do you have another computer that you can try the card in? It may be DOA. What is your PSU make/model out of interest?

Do you even see the motherboard post screen? I was under the impression that the 7790 uses a custom driver version specific to that model -- maybe the old driver is causing an issue?

comment NVIDIA GeForce 210 - taking out on-board network on HP ProLiant ML150G6?
@Vector: Is there another slot you can try the GPU in? I've really got no idea how to fix it, sorry -- was just supposition.

comment NVIDIA GeForce 210 - taking out on-board network on HP ProLiant ML150G6?
This is a bit of a stretch as an explanation, but here's the theory: the specs (h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/ds_00148/ds_00148.pdf) say the network is "Embedded HP NC107i PCI Express Gigabit Server Adapter"...some motherboards share PCIe lanes...when you plug in a GPU it turns off the lane doing the networking. I'd need to know a lot more about the motherboard architecture to know if this is even plausible though.

comment How to set up environmental variable in Ubuntu?
I think by default Eclipse uses a JRE that it comes with anyway?

comment Best SMPS wattage required for the below config?
+1, was about to post something similar. I reckon the machine will pull no more than 250W when running flat out.

comment The right location of src files to compile?
Ah, okay sounds like you're building tools/modules to run on your system, as opposed to just "developing software"? Maybe putting it in /usr/local is better than, but your instinct about having to "sudo" everything is correct -- it's not recommended.

comment The right location of src files to compile?
I just put source code in my home directory, as in /home/<username>/Code/...

comment Asus GTX650: Underpowered it and it is no longer detected. Driver issues or damaged?
What operating system are you using? Does the operating system (or even the BIOS) detect the card (even without drivers, it should recognise that there is something plugged in)? When you say "corrected it with a decent PSU", what PSU did you upgrade to?

comment Pcie x16 slot 2 broken?
There's always the possibility that it's faulty. If the suggestions below don't work, you may need to get a replacement under warranty.

comment Pcie x16 slot 2 broken?
Does slot 2 work if it you run with a single GPU plugged into it, or only when you try to SLI?

comment Reflecting changes to a file in a different location
I've never had much luck with symbolic links in Windows, but maybe have a look at this and see if it does what you need: superuser.com/questions/182553/…

Have you tried adjusting the monitor's V-position? Should be accessible in its settings somewhere.

@Daniel: Yeah, I've found cut/paste into a fresh document is the only way to fix a document sometimes.

Put the cursor on that line and press Shift-Tab? What have you already tried?
