750w is way plenty for cards these days. Their power consumption has fallen over the years. I've used the same 650w Corsair for the last three PC builds. If it's a decent PSU that's one expense you shouldn't have.

Even Ray Tracing cards?
Search for the power specs on the manufacturer's website.

Was looking through my bookmarks today and hadn't realised how long I've been saving them.

Me thinks a new gfx card is needed. Nothing wrong with the current one. Bit worried that the 750W PSU isn't going to handle the card with all the gubbins of the assorted hard drives and whatnots connected to the pc

The longest day. Downhill to Christmas now. How depressing. I've been feeling fed up a lot lately. I've done nothing this last six months, gone nowhere, ravished no beautiful women, not driven a Veyron... What's the point?

If his DNS cache is corrupted it won't be able to resolve the address, since it uses the cached entry first.
If there's no entry in the cache it then goes to the DNS host specified for the adapter, then on the router if that fails.

There's a coomand for that.
Pretty sure it's
ipconfig /flushdns

He can now get access on his phone which is through a different provider, so that means our software isn't blocking him.
He cleared his caches the other day.
I've asked him to change his DNS servers as suggested and also to contact his ISP.
Edit
But what's puzzling is why just the one site should be the problem.
