    Best voice over software

    Audacity.
  2. I stand corrected. I only looked at the first link on Google lol. You should be fine then.
  3. According to Google: That Vostro has a 250W PSU. The i5 is 95 watts. RX 460 is around 75 max. Your HDD and mobo are another 15 a piece. That's 200 watts already. You factor in the efficiency loss in the PSU, and you'd be running near max PSU load under load. Idk what brand is in the Vostro, but it could fail if it's a cheap PSU.
  4. That would be great then. That i5, although older, still has great single threaded performance and 4 cores. As others have mentioned, you could get a 2500k at anytime. You could also probably find a cheap mobo in the future for overclocking. You'll probably need to get a new PSU to support the graphics card.

    Is Twitter down worldwide?

    You can be in a different part of the world and still use a DNS nameserver in the US.
  6. What games do you plan on playing? What resolution? How long are you going to use this PC?

    How fast should your ram be?

    This made me laugh.
  10. Recently, watching YouTube videos in Chrome has been impossible. They buffer like crazy. I've never had this issue before. -My internet is fast. -Nothing else is hogging my bandwidth -- confirmed via network monitoring. -My computer is fast -- nothing is hogging bandwidth -Cleared chrome data/reinstalled. -- No extensions Firefox and *Edge* work just fine. Anyone else having this issue?

    And it's only 51watts. That's going to be a super good CPU.

    Has anyone had Gears of War 4 freeze on Xbox One?

    You could try reinstalling it. This could be a pain if you have slow internet and/or a bandwidth cap. Unplugging the Xbox completely, waiting, and then restarting it might help. It could also be the hard drive starting to fail.

    Will upgrading help?

    Both these games require strong single threaded CPU performance, which the 8320 isn't too good at. The 960 will play these games on high @ 1080p.
