Re: best wifi adpter?

ASUS PCE‑AC68 looks pretty good but too expensive for the computer i am thinking of putting together. that's why i asked for a cheaper usb alternative.

Re: geforce drivers crashing wdm

GPU's at stock clocks and voltages? If not, have you tried at stock? When you install a new NVIDIA driver, do you do a full uninstall and reboot cycle? If not, old versions will be on your system, so I'd recommend uninstalling, rebooting, uninstalling, rebooting, until you have no NVIDIA driver sho...

Re: nvidia drivers only through GeForce Experience software?

I guess you don't read the TR front page much? And no, it's not the ONLY place you will get Nvidia drivers. It's only the GameReady drivers that will require it. You will still be able to get the regular WHQL quarterly releases from the website. http://techreport.com/news/29195/game-ready-drivers-t...
