Hi MeFi, I have a PC I bought in 2012 and it has served me well for past years, however, it skips/lags when it comes to 1080p/4k video. I am looking to upgrade to a better card but unsure what factors I have to consider before upgrading. I mostly do video editing + motion media. The machine is as follows: Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) CPU: AMD FX-8150 (Zambezi 32nm Technology) Motherboard: Gigabyte 2AC8 Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7570 2gb RAM: 16gb Is there a site that will let me figure out which GFX card(s) my machine is upgradable to? Thanks in advance!
I designed an app for tablets that I'd like to present to potential investors. Problem is, I can't make an in-person presentation and I'll have to settle for an online one. How do the professionals usually go about this (videos, images, ...)? [more inside]

For you tech nerds - do you see it more worthwhile to invest in the new MacBooks or rely on Airs, with extra drives/support for doing occasional video and gfx work? Where is the future headed.
Do I really have to replace the motherboard? My computer is showing no display and I think I've ruled out everything except the motherboard. Changing that is obviously expensive and time-consuming, so please tell me if I'm missing anything! [more inside]

I bought the ATI Sapphire HD 3870 a couple of months ago. I was especially stoked about the HDMI out feature that would allow me to play audio from my DVD receiver (Samsung HTQ80T/XAA). Well it does that but, the resolution is blurry. Changing the display quality on the pc doesn't help. My PC is connected to the HDMI IN on the receiver and the HDMI OUT on the receiver is connected to my monitor. DVD's look fine but the PC looks horrid. Not sure if it's the Home theater, or the card. Any Ideas as to what I can do about this? thanks.
This week an organization I work with is running a big, high energy (iPhone and Wii giveaways, the whole 9 yards) event geared towards high-school students. I'm tasked with organizing some of the creative/design aspects of it, but I've hit a few dead ends, specifically in the area of what I would call ambient video. [more inside]
