    Laptop advice! Budget 700/800€ max

    Look for used Surface Laptops then. You are gonna be hard pressed to find sonething better than the laptops i picket around that budget. Perhaps look at Dell XPS devices. Used or otherwise.

    Will This work out?

    I would reffer to the failure of AM3 boards and the total lack of care and time put into B series boards and A series boards. But lets be happy these types of boards sell poorly enough that its hard to build data. A lot of people not neccesarly you. Tweaking with setting is something you will have to do anyway. But say hello to page filing. Not only makes it the slower load times worse. It quickly degrades any normal usage aswell as pagefiling is very common in 8GB of Ram systems. It will take a second. And while you might be fine with pagefiling it certainly slows down the system. And pagediling does happen. And it happens a lot. Do you have more than 4 chrome tabs open? Well you will most likely start to pagefile. Opened a game? Instant pagefile. It happens, and it happens a lot. Its a constant 30 fps on upscaled 4k. Its a more constant optimized experience. And you do not have to deal with a poor motherboard and resale is more or less constant as the PS4 Pro will be forwards compatible with the PS5 (Based on Sony statements) Well....... Remind me to write down not to look towards Jayz (not a wellknown budget PC compiler) for budget recommendations. Also late 2017 we still had a GPU crisis and a very high nand flash crisis. And him suggesting a A series board is hobestly a crime. B series board being very cheap at the time

    Does it stay high, or does it come back down? Are you on a HDD or SSD? Contrary to popular belief you WANT disk usage to spike when opening something, because that will mean it is opening as fast as it can. If your windows install is failing, you're 100% losing the disk. Get a new one. Torrenting will cause higher disk usage when seeding or downloading because it is constantly writing and reading data. uTorrent has ads, ads are easily comprimised and usually the main source of website contamination. You should find a client to use that doesn't have ads. Torrenting it self doesn't mean piracy, so just don't mention what you use it for. I understand in some countries it's not easy to get media you might want to view but that doesn't mean it isn't still piracy. There is no best linux distro, you'll have to go through trying out a bunch of different distros and make that descision yourself. I myself prefer Solus. Games heavy on your cpu and GPU are not bad for them, I don't really understand why you've mentioned it this way. High utilization of any component is not inherently bad. getting 90-100% cpu and gpu usage as long as it isn't causing the system to hang will mean that a game is using all of the resources it can and is running the best it can on your hardware. I'm not really sure why you're using download managers anymore in 2019, back before modern browsers they were needed because they handled downloads better than browsers did. however all modern browsers now handle downloads really well even being able to pause and resume under most circumstances. Is there any particular reason you're downloading youtube videos? generally they aren't going anywhere you can just put them into a playlist. TLDR; probably HDD failure, just get a new one and you'll be fine. Unless you're trying to use a pirated version of windows, then maybe just switch to linux anyway.

    Has LMG's YouTube content gotten Better or Worse?

    Neither better or worse, just seems to be engaging with a different audience then probably 2-3 years ago. I mean would be stupid to offer the same old content if they're trying to run a successful company/channel. That said, much of what they produce doesn't really interest me that much, I tend to always watch the wan show though. The videos they make are easily breaking 1mil views on average, little hard for someone to make the argument the content isn't as good with that kind of engagement

    GTX 1070 or Vega 56

    Both fine options. The 1660Ti is comparable and less pricey then both in the U.S.
  10. Which Gen PCI-e? As long as a mobo has a PCI-e slot any graphics card is supported with older generation PCI-e slots holding the GPU potential back a bit.

    are you satisfied with your cx550m? @LienusLateTips

    Will This work out?

    JayzTwoCentz recommended THIS YEAR getting an HDD instead of an SSD if the budget was too tight and you needed to spend the least amount possible. He also, in his budget build late 2017, used an EVGA 430w 80+ unit alongside a Gigabyte A320m-HD2.

    Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

    Just coming in to applaud the changes to LTT Youtube video titles going forward. I have now watched videos that I probably never would have under the previous system. For instance, I probably never would have watched the recent Aero 15 review, except for catching the back half of what's now the title. Before, all I would have seen is a clickbait title and picture of a laptop, and passed it by. However, I'm specifically interested in Gigabyte's Aero series, and I didn't notice until after watching the review that the video thumbnail had "Aero" on the screen of the laptop. I watched Linus' explanation of titles, and I see where's he's coming from, but stuff like that is too subtle (especially depending on your device and the size of the thumbnail image to see "Aero"), or in other cases there were too many degrees of separation. After watching the explanation in the GoXLR video, I feel good about LMG as a company.

    Trends on Linus fora

    This post is some of the best AI I have seen on the forums On a serious note, You know most of the posts around here are real people because you couldn't program a computer to be that illogical without burning out a few crucial chips in the process.
  15. you ever think about how after boss key productions shut down, cliff bleszinski retreated to his safe cafe business ventures in raleigh, NC while ex-BKP employees were left with no severance pay, no job and no idea how they'll pay the bills or feed their families

      It's stories like that which makes me happy that I'm in a union. 

      Yes, they have their downsides, but I think that they are a nessacary evil.

      The video game industry is pretty notorious for having zero unionization and terrible job security. Government won't do anything about it because IT's NoT a ReAl JoB and these big game companies would rather line the pockets of their executives than treat employees like people (see: Activision-Blizzard giving their new CFO a $15m bonus package when they assumed the role before laying off 800 employees worldwide, after bragging about RECORD PROFITS!!! no less).


      Unionize the games industry!

    internet works but can play online games

    Restart router if you haven't already. Also, if this has been a thing more than day or two, you could contact your ISP and ask about if they have changed something in their end.
  21. I don't know what's more retarded, the original article and issues surrounding it or many of the responses to it. And I use the term legitimately to reflect a lagging or deficit in observation and understanding.
  22. Hi all! I have purchased a hp envy x360 amd edition rizon 5 and radion gpu( sweet machine if you aske me ) It came with a m.2 250 gb and 8 gb of ram I waned to install a ssd to get more storage but when I took it apart the cable for ssd is not there Also waned to know what kind of ram is in there.... Does anyone know what ribbon cable I need ? if you know the model number that would be amazing
  23. so JEDEC,


    if these are LP (low profile)



    and this is VLP (very-low profile)




    WTF is normal profile?!

      huh. o_o I'll take my rant back then

    3. leadeater


      Well it was still funny to see 🙂. Though if LP became normal profile after DDR2 and VLP didn't come until after DDR2 then why is it called VLP and not simply LP since LP is NP after DDR2? LP = NP. Confused yet? 🤪

    4. VegetableStu


      that was my basis of that rant ._. i.e. why LP is not NP (if it's the "standard height" these days) and VLP is not LP

    Are the latest video drivers necesary?

    You do not NEED them, no. If its working then it's working. However, there are some videos out there that show how much drivers over time can improve the FPS of a card the better the drivers. This is why nvidia releases "Game ready" drivers, it updates them to run the game better because games aren't coded to a high standard leaving nvidia and AMD to fix up rendering mistakes made by the devs. So if you're regularly playing new titles, you probably should update there will be further optimizations that will keep things running how they should. If you're not worried about any of that and just play the same old games you don't really need to worry about it.
