    Router help, school

    So I am in college and the internet we have here is kinda limited, my main issue is with my Amazon echo and other similar things, my thought was can i just buy a really cheap router and plug it into my ethernet port. Would I be able to set up my own wifi with that? I was probably going to get something like the TP-Link N300, because internet speed is not a issue for echo and things of that sort. So my question is can I create any wifi just from any ethernet hookup?

    well I would think either something is overheating (not gpu) or your PSU is running out of power, have you checked other temps, maybe also check psu loads

    most power cords are universal, I've never head of problems with mixing them.

    Looking for advice on upgrading

    Well first id ask your budget and what you do with it, and like what games you play. If you spend most of the time gaming i would get the RTX because then you could better run games at those high framerates

    well the school wifi has a username and password that is different for everyone but the ethernet does not (dont even know if you could) but thats why I thought about using that

    VA panel ok for gaming?

    Looking at the MSI monitor it seems like thats TN not VA, not sure if you care anymore but Acer makes a very very similar monitor except its VA to the one you got. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824011198&ignorebbr=1

    1440p ultrawide vs 4k monitors

    So i just picked up a 4k 27in LG monitor and I have been enjoying it but ive been thinking about returning it for a 34in 1440p Ultrawide. Im realizing how difficult it is to drive games (obviously since i have a 1060) and how hard it is to find 4k content on anything other than youtube. I really cant decide now if the ultrawide is worth about a extra 200. I would like opinions from people that have owned or tried either, I feel like honestly in games I cant tell the difference of 4k, and I have tried games where I can crank the video settings all the way up and i dont know if its me or what but I am having trouble telling that its 4k. Same goes for youtube, anything other than the nature videos I have trouble telling that it is 4k (mind you without seeing it side by side) Any opinions would be appreciated.

    1440p ultrawide vs 4k monitors

    which one was it? because it seems like 1440p can sometimes be just as expensive as 4k

    Ultrawide monitor help

    So I have had dual 1080p monitors for years and finally think its time to upgrade, I am thinking about getting a 34in 1440p IPS ultrawide. I'm looking for suggestions from the $500 - $600 ish range, I would prefer if it is curved and has a good stand. Are HDR ultrawides a thing yet and if so are they decently cheap? Also if you think I should get a 27in 4k monitor let me know. I am going to use this for gaming but for mainly productivity and multi media consumption.

    2.1 Speaker set up

    So I have a JBL SP150 which I plan to use in a 2.1 speaker setup, I have been really looking towards the Audioengine A4 since they are highly regarded speakers, I was thinking about using this Micca DAC and AMP to power the speakers and hook everything together, this setup together would be about $350, would it be better sound quality wise and just overall listening experience to just get the Audioengine A5+ since they are $350? https://www.amazon.com/Audioengine-P4N-Passive-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B002FK86H2/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1509657682&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=audioengine%2Bpassive&smid=AKR88PAWTQVN2&th=1 https://www.amazon.com/Micca-OriGain-Compact-Integrated-Amplifier/dp/B01LXV4O6B/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1510032907&sr=8-4&keywords=usb+dac+speakers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005OA3BSY/ref=twister_B00L3KRZS6?_encoding=UTF8&th=1
