This customer wanted the latest and greatest video card for high resolution gaming on a huge monitor so they needed to upgrade their video card. They had a Nvidia 780TI, which was top of the line just a few years ago, but wanted something newer and faster for the latest games and their new, large monitor.
They chose the Nvidia 1080TI graphics card as the current champion in high resolution gaming. We replaced the existing card and loaded the updated drivers and patches to ensure that it was operating at peak performance in their custom build gaming PC.
After a few further adjustments to tweak the new gaming monitor to work with their new graphics card they were ready to go.
If you want to upgrade your gaming PC but aren’t sure where to start or what you might need then please give us a call. We can make it as painless as possible to get you back in action!
This customer came to us with a need to get their WIFI signal from their main house across a lake their rental cabins. They were tired of paying high prices for a cellular hot spot for their rental guests. Charter has a connection to the main house but would not run a line to the cabins about 500ft across the lake.
We set up a Ubiquiti wireless bridge across the lake from the main house to one of their cabins. Once the distance/lake was bridged we setup a powerful outdoor WIFI access point that gives a great signal in and around the cabins.
If you need outdoor WIFI or to extend your existing network without running wires give us a call. We can also help with unreliable WIFI at your home or business.

The benchmarks on the new graphics card were 3x – 5x better with the new card!
