    Why does this appear on my files.

    I've never turned compression off, only turned it on, This looks to be what you're looking for though: https://www.onlinecomputertips.com/support-categories/windows/694-disable-file-compression

    What's the best graphics card for £370?

    I have a strix 1080 and the fans don't even spin most of the time unless I'm playing a demanding game, runs at about 55C under load with minimal noise

    I've found that a lot of prebuilt motherboards don't have many features and aren't always great when it comes to high performance components and power draw. Having a proper board with let you chance more settings and will come with more ports/features as well as allowing for better upgrades in the future. The GPU should be fine in your current board, just something you might want to look into

    You get RTX with the 2060. Although you're unlikely to be using it with only a 60 series card. As others have said, the V56 has more vram. 6GB is enough for most games at 1080/1440 but getting into higher resolutions, high refresh rates and more demanding games, 6gb will soon not be enough. I've always preffered Nvidia cards so I'd go with the 2060 anyway, but that's just personally preference. If you want a direct spec for spec which is better, the V56 is most likely the winner

    Geforce GTX 1660 ti (6gb) on MS 7869 Version 1

    The board has a PCI-E slot so it should be good. Might be worth looking into getting an old Z87/Z97 board on ebay though

    What's the best graphics card for £370?

    That card looks pretty good, only 1 HDMI port though so you'd need to convert the DPs with you need more HDMIs. Otherwise should be good

    Enable 144hz?

    Double check your display drivers are up to date, then maybe try factory resetting the monitor, plug it into the PC, set the monitor to the right refresh rate, then set it it Nvidia CP

    Enable 144hz?

    The 1060 does support DP 1.2, what about the cable? I've seen cheap cables that aren't properly certified cause issues. It might be worth trying just the 144Hz monitor plugged in and see if it works then

    Why does this appear on my files.

    Windows compression. When a drive or folder is set to compress files, the thumbnails show the arrows. On the other hand though, I've seen this happen when the drive/folder is set to compress files and it just a bug

    Enable 144hz?

    What GPU are you running? Does it definitely support DP 1.2?

    Best SD card for a Dash Cam

    Samsung's are usually the best for most cases, I use the Evo Plus for most things. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Mobile-UK-MicroSD-Adapter/dp/B06XFWPXYD?tag=linustechtips-21

    Affordable Ultra-wide

    fair enough, the AOC one looks good although more expensive than the LG ones, to be expected with the higher refresh rate though. I'll look at some reviews of the LGs and the AOC and go from there. Thanks everyone for the help!

    Affordable Ultra-wide

    I'm not overly familiar with VA panels so never really looked into them. Are they much different to IPS? From what I've just read they seem to be a sort of middle ground between IPS and TN. I definitely don't want a TN panel but I'd be happy to try a VA if you say they're pretty good

    Affordable Ultra-wide

    I much prefer IPS panels so I think I'll stick to those. The LG ones look pretty good, I'm gonna have a quick look at what Samsung have to offer in case I can get a higher refresh rate Scratch that, Samsung's are all curved and more expensive so looks like I'll be going with the LG

    Affordable Ultra-wide

    Thanks, I was looking at a couple of LGs just now, found a couple similarly priced to what you sent. I was hopping for a bit higher than 75Hz but if that's what most Ultrawides are then it'll have to do. The 34 inch you sent looks pretty good so I'll probably go with that one.
