  • Biography
    I got a macbook air for school in 2012, built my own pc in 2015, installed Linux Mint on my pc in 2017 and I'm working on a website for school that uses firebase and react :)
    About a month later and I no longer use Linux mint, windows Linux subsystem works with my favorite terminals and vscode, so no need for the Linux desktop anymore, since windows is more convenient for everything that doesn't involve the terminal or file system.

    Best graphics card for $100

    rx 470/570 if you can find one, but as the comments above already said: the rest of your computer is so old that you probably need to swap out more parts (first psu, then cpu and ram)
  2. digital, only google play music, used it for many years and it's been nice
  3. some people really hate how nvenc looks, and use x264 (cpu) encoding on a seperate pc to get the best image quality, you have to test out for yourself if you find cpu encoding worth it (cpu encoding will have fps impact very likely)
  4. If you use NVENC you will not have lower FPS since it's a seperate part of the gpu that does the encoding from the part that does the gaming
  5. how much of a drop is it and are you using fullscreen windowed or fullscreen?
  6. https://www.gearank.com/guides/cheap-audio-interface it looks like they don't intend for it to be used with linux, so they didn't bother making a driver
  7. yes it will work, but how well depends on your cpu
  8. lol i get 20gb of data & 100 sms/min for 15 euros, how come everything else is so cheap but internet (both mobile and home) is relatively expensive?
  9. powerline will probably give you headaches (it did for me but idk how it works for the rest of the world) and extenders won't really do that much against thick walls, so a 30m cable really is your best option
  10. if you have to ask, you probably don't need it but here's a video explaining it:
  11. geforce cards aren't that much better for gaming with the same gpu, but a $700 quadro vs a $700 geforce card is going to have very different specs so that's why it looks to the average consumer like quadros can't game at all
  12. in some programs you can get 10 bit color to work (hdr in games) but most professional applications don't work with 10 bit unless you've got a quadro

    A GPU suggestion for my very old i7 3770

    look up the benchmarks (youtube is a pretty good source) for your game, cpu and gpu combo, if it's a popular combo there's a very good chance you'll find results
  14. You need a quadro if you want to use 10 bit color in adobe programs and they have more video memory to store large models, the rest is explained in the video

    A GPU suggestion for my very old i7 3770

    well no, if you had that much money it would still be wise to spend it on a new gpu instead of a cpu because that would benefit your gaming experience more
