Looking for a PCI-E graphics card, any will do


I am looking for a very cheap PCI-E graphics card, specs don’t matter at all as I simply need one to use with an old computer purely for office tasks, no gaming at all.

Anyone got a crappy old one sitting in a drawer I can take off your hands for postage and a few quid for your trouble?

I’ve seen a bunch on Ebay for a fiver but thought I’d check here too as I try to avoid Ebay whenever possible!

Mobile World Congress 2018: Five things you can do with Lenovo’s two new Windows 10 PCs

This week at Mobile World Congress, Lenovo introduced their newest 2-in-1s: the new Yoga 730 (in 13-inch and 15-inch models) and the new 14-inch Flex 14. These new devices will start to become available at select retailers this April and range in price from $599-$899.6
Here’s five ways they make working on-the-go easier than ever:

#1: Take one with you – they’re convertible and lighter than ever
The new Windows 10 convertibles are lighter than before, so you can easily take them with you wherever you go. Shedding 13 percent of its weight, the 15-inch Yoga 730 is just 1.89 kg (4.17 lbs) and 1.12 kg (2.47 lbs) for the even more compact 13-inch model. At 1.6 kg (3.53 lbs), the 14-inch Flex 14 won’t weigh your bag down, either – it’s 11 percent thinner than before at just 17.6mm (0.69 in).

#2: Save time & effort with Cortana
Cortana[1]  is available on your Yoga 730 to help you with everyday tasks by just using your voice[2]. Say “Hey, Cortana,” and she’s ready to provide you with helpful information, check your calendar[3], give you a preview of your day across work and life, and take care of everyday tasks and reminders.

#3: Log in with your fingerprint with Windows Hello
Both the Yoga 730 and Flex 14 come with a built-in fingerprint reader, so you can quickly and easily log into your device with Windows Hello. When you’re on the go, feel at ease with Lenovo Vantage and its Wi-Fi monitoring security features. Lenovo Vantage combines several apps into one to help you identify secure Wi-Fi networks, migrate files and settings from one PC to another and get system diagnostics and support.

#4: Charge your device for 15 minutes and get two hours of battery with built-in Rapid Charge[4]
The Yoga 730 offers up to 11.5 hours of battery life on the 13-inch model and up to 11 hours on the 15-inch in FHD.4 Running from meeting to meeting on a busy day? With Rapid Charge, in just 15 minutes you can get up to 2 hours of usage of your Flex 14 and 13-inch Yoga 730 to help power through your day without worrying about plugging in.[5]
#5: Write on your touchscreen with Windows Ink
The new devices come with up to a UHD touchscreen display on the Yoga 730 and a FHD touchscreen display on the Flex 14, with razor-thin borders, so you can swipe, pinch and tap to browse the web with Microsoft Edge. You can also use the optional Lenovo Active Pen 2 with 4,096 levels of sensitivity to write, draw or annotate with Windows Ink for a pen-on-paper experience.

Additional features of these new devices include:
Engineered with up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 discrete graphics (on the 15-inch Yoga 730) and comfortable full-sized keyboards, the new 2-in-1s are more than up to the task for content creation on the go.
Up to a UHD (3840×2160) display, JBL speakers and Dolby Atmos on the Yoga 730 make for more immersive entertainment experiences.
Connect the Yoga 730 to a 4K display through the laptop’s blazing-fast Thunderbolt 3 port to increase your productivity or share your holiday photo slideshow.
From its thinner and lighter design to the long battery life, the new Yoga 730 and Flex 14 with Windows 10 offer remarkable performance and portability to help you get things done in a way that feels most natural and convenient to you.  Discover more at lenovo.com/mwc, or head over here for more of our partners’ news from MWC.
Pricing and availability: In North America, the 13-inch Yoga 730 will start at $879.99 and the 15-inch model will start at $899.99, both expected to be available on lenovo.com and select retailers starting April 2018.

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17112 for Fast

Hello Windows Insiders!
Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17112 (RS4) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
Windows Mixed Reality
There are two issues impacting the usability of Windows Mixed Reality on this build. Windows Mixed Reality runs at a very low frame rate (8-10fps) that could result in some physical discomfort. And there are multiple crashes at startup that will cause Windows Mixed Reality to not work. For Insiders who want to keep Windows Mixed Reality working – you might want to consider hitting pause on taking new Insider Preview builds until these issues are fixed. You can pause Insider Preview builds by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program and pressing the “Stop Insider Preview builds” button and choosing “Pause updates for a bit”.
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
We fixed an issue where selecting a notification after taking a screenshot or game clip opened the Xbox app’s home screen instead of opening the screenshot or game clip.
We fixed an issue where EFI and Recovery partitions were unexpectedly listed in Defragment and Optimize Drives.
We fixed an issue optimizing drives in Defragment and Optimize Drives didn’t work in the last few flights.
We fixed an issue resulting in a permanently black window if you dragged a tab out of a Microsoft Edge window, pulled it up to the top edge of the screen, and moved it back down and released it.
We fixed an issue where the warning on Windows 10 S when trying to run non-Microsoft Store apps from File Explorer might end up stuck behind the File Explorer window.
We fixed an issue where there was some unexpected extra space in the File Explorer navigation pane before the chevron icons to expand/collapse folders.
We fixed an issue where if focus was set inside Action Center pressing Esc wouldn’t close the Action Center window.
We fixed an issue that could result in ShellExperienceHost periodically waking the device from hibernate if active live tiles were pinned to Start.
We fixed an issue where navigating to Settings > System > Focus Assist > “Customize your priority list” could crash Settings.
Known issues
IMPORTANT: The Microsoft Store may be completely broken or disappeared altogether after upgrading to this build. Please see this forum post for details including a workaround on how to get the Microsoft Store back.
If you try to open a file that is available online-only from OneDrive that hasn’t been previously downloaded to your PC (marked with a green checkmark in File Explorer), your PC could bugcheck (GSOD). You can work around this problem by right-clicking on these files and selecting “Always keep on this device.” Any file-on-demand from OneDrive that is already downloaded to the PC should open fine.
Post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices have experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and may enter a reboot loop state. For affected PCs, turning off fast boot may bypass the issue. If not, it is necessary to create a bootable ISO on a USB drive, boot into recovery mode, and this this will allow bypass.
When Movies & TV user denies access to its videos library (through the “Let Movies & TV access your videos library?” popup window or through Windows privacy settings), Movies & TV crashes when the user navigates to the “Personal” tab.

New 3D View mode in Paint 3D improves ease and accuracy of editing

As part of the Windows 10 Creators Update, we shared our goal to bring 3D to everyone and to empower you to create, play and share in a new dimension with the launch of Paint 3D.
Whether you’re a professional or just wanting to express yourself creatively, Paint 3D is available to all skill levels and backgrounds, and with the Remix 3D online community, you can choose to start from scratch or be inspired by others. Now with editing in 3D View mode, creating in 3D has never been easier.
3D View enables you to edit from any angle, which means even more accurate and intuitive 3D creation. You can now orbit around your 3D designs and continue doodling, painting or stickering without having to switch back to the 2D camera. This means, if you’re creating a 3D replica of Earth, you can continue rotating around the planet with no interruptions in your work! Today, we’re sharing some quick tips for getting started with this new update.
View and edit your creation from multiple angles
Switching to 3D View is a great way to admire your work from different perspectives. In 3D View, you can orbit, pan and zoom around your 3D creation to get a better look at it.

As you move around, you’ll see our familiar selection box, which will automatically twist so that it’s always facing you.

The angle of the box shows you the direction your models will move and scale.

You will also see the new selection highlight, which enables you to always see your models, even if they are behind something else.

You can keep adding new objects, continue painting with different brushes, or put stickers on your work – all while remaining in your desired viewpoint.

Start working in 3D View today
To access the 3D View mode, you’ll just need to be on the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and ensure you have the latest app update to Paint 3D. Then, go to the top of your tool bar within Paint 3D and click 3D View. To learn how to get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, check out this blog post.
Let 3D View give you a new perspective on creativity and get started today!
