    Comparing monitors

    Long story short, I'm looking for a 240hz monitor. options are: Asus XG258Q Acer XF250Q Both support freesync but Asus is supported by Gsync and the Acer monitor is unclear. Price wise, the Acer monitor cost about half as much as the Asus, so I'm curious to know what are the major differences I could not find many reviews for the Acer monitor
  2. it's always good to try on stock settings before u tweak anything... was the system running on different set of ram before this? was the system confirmed working?
  3. tried booting after clearing cmos? was that setup working before this? common diagnostic steps for ram: use 1 stick at a time try different slots give it around 2 minutes per try as your computer may be tweaking some settings

    Random Benchmark

    it was in worse shape when i got it, 1x2gb stick, 2x1gb stick, of which a 1gb stick was dead
  5. Recently got a desktop from my friend with a Core 2 Quad in it, decided to have some fun with it Recorded using shadowplay, i know it causes like 3% of fps, but my GPU isnt even pushed to it's limits anyways. And if you're taking this setup seriously then you need help. System spec: CPU: Core 2 Quad Q8300 RAM: 6GB (DDR2 2x2GB + 2x1GB) GPU: Asus Strix GTX 1070/GTX970 Storage: 120GB SSD PSU: Seasonic M12ii 620W OS: Windows 10 Home both GPU are at 90% power and slightly overclocked... i think (didnt care much tbh) I do have a Core 2 Duo laying around... should I...? Maybe i should dig out my Pentium 4 motherboards and see if they have pcie slots

    i find the search bar unhelpful and useless at times (cant even find an application right in start bar) i have no idea how to fix it, i just get used to pinning folders to quick access of commonly used folders and applications in taskbar...

    Gaming Laptop

    what games do you play? find benchmarks for the games you play with the config you're looking at and compare the value among them my way of seeing it: if it costs just as much for the same performance, grab the latest tech, but if latest tech's value is bad, then look at previous tech

    it was never working to begin with... all jokes aside, was your windows recently updated/patched? microsoft have the worst search bar in history, that's why you never hear "bing it"

    How do i get the most out of my Gigabit Internet?

    try plugging your computer directly into the router without going through this, as this may be the issue itself but first, does the ethernet on your computer support gigabit connection? does your router support gigabit connection? read the user manual for the right config as not all ports behind a router is created equal

    I think i killed my motherboard

    does your motherboard light up? there should be sign of life even if idle if not, two possibilities, dead motherboard or dead PSU you could also check if the fuse in your PSU cable is burnt if there is one (normally only found in UK plugs)

    Can someone help me bottleneck

    lower launch time for softwares would be a typical example numbers doesnt reflect true experience, an average user cant tell the difference between SATA SSD and NVME SSD, but the difference between SATA SSD and a typical HDD is much more noticeable

    I think i killed my motherboard

    does the power supply come with the usb hub?

    I think i killed my motherboard

    does your CPU have iGPU? if yes, try booting up your system with PSU, CPU (with cooler), Motherboard, and 1 stick of RAM (bare minimum) connect only CPU 8/4-pin and 24-pin to the motherboard clearing CMOS would probably be a good idea too hopefully your motherboard is well designed that the damage is only affecting the USB VRM components and not your CPU

    a slow hard disk will give you an "okay" computing experience, it does not affect gameplay much other than load times if u are on a tight budget and SSD cannot be fit into it, it's fine if you use a spinning hard disk if you have some cash to spare, i recommend u grab a 240gb SSD and clone your system drive onto it with a backup software (such as aomei backupper) an SSD wont help much in games, but it will give you a more responsive system experience (and probably faster game installation too)
  15. aint many people have a spare SSD laying around lmfao
