  1. Friends PC

    It's mostly to see if it boots into BIOS and outputs and image. After that, you can just remove the GPU, install the motherboard into the case with the RAM, CPU and cooler on it (unless it's an AIO, then you'd want to take it off first, then reinstall it)
  2. Wifi Router Recommendations ($300 or less)

    For the access point, I would go for a Ubiquiti UniFi AC AP Pro. For the router, most of them (above a certain price point) are actually pretty similar if you remove the wireless as a factor (what the access point is for). Something like a TP-Link Archer C7 or Asus RT AC66U will do well. Should be below $250 in total for the router and AP.
  3. Wifi Router Recommendations ($300 or less)

    I would spend $100 on a router and $200 on a dedicated access point. You'll typically get more for your money that way rather than an overpriced router with gaming marketing. (most "gaming" oriented networking gear is overpriced).
  4. $6K USD

    Regret not buying Bitcoin when it was sub $100. Now also regretting not buying Bitcoin when it was $500. I wonder if people will end up regretting not buying it at $6000.
  5. RAM Pricing

    No, you should expect it to go up if anything. Toshiba had to halt some NAND production for 3-6 weeks due to a ransomware attack, so they're behind. While it was NAND intended for SSDs, it will likely affect RAM as well. I believe the estimated loss was about 400Petabytes (400,000 Terabytes) of NAND. There's been a shortage of flash memory for a while now thanks to people switching to DDR4 and more systems coming with SSDs as standard. It was improving, but this isn't going to fair well for pricing.
  6. What do you think about flip phones?

    I kind of miss having a flip phone. It was satisfying to close when you ended a call. Are you talking about side flip, book type phones? I don't really see the point in them. It looks like the flip screen would just snap off from a drop.
  7. What happen when u get warning points?

    I think it's entirely up to admins and mods as to what happens. I don't think LTT has ever had a practice of putting restrictions on users as a punishment. I think it's pretty much temp-bans or perma-bans. You'll probably get contacted by a mod before they do anything though, unless you're constantly spamming or something. If you just don't break the rules, you shouldn't have any problems. I'm nearly 18,000 posts in, never had a warning point because I just stick to normal discussions on the forum. If you plan to break the rules of the forum for fun or something, you should probably do something more productive with your time
  8. What happen when u get warning points?

    There isn't a set limit AFAIK. You can also get banned with 0 warning points if you do something bad enough. It's more there as a way to discourage people from repeatedly breaking the rules, rather than really being a matter of getting to X number of points before a ban. EDIT: I imagine most bans on the forum are instant rather than due to accumulating points.
  9. Best calibration settings for AOC AG271QG?

    To tell you that using someone else's settings won't necessarily get the best results. Buying a calibration tool and adjusting your panel is the best option. EDIT: Or you can do it by eye and see what looks best to you. Some people prefer a warmer colour, some prefer cooler. Some prefer it to be brighter, some less bright. We can't tell you what is best for you as we are not you. If all you want is colour accuracy, get a colour calibrator and adjust the panel that way. EDIT2: It also has nothing to do with owning the monitor. The same thing goes for pretty much all monitors other than professional colour grading monitors that go through individual calibration before leaving the factory. I would suggest that when asking for advice on a public forum, you try and take some rather than getting antsy about it, or people won't want to help you. You said you want the best picture quality, so I told you how you'd get the best picture quality.
  10. What happen when u get warning points?

    When you collect enough you get banned.
  11. Best calibration settings for AOC AG271QG?

    That's subjective, plus the monitors vary from panel to panel, so what looks good on one may not on another. Only way to really get the best results is to adjust your panel specifically.
  12. What Displayport version is my monitor compatible with

    https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Gold-Plated-DisplayPort/dp/B005H3Q59U/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1508468078&sr=1-3&keywords=displayport+cable https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Rankie-Plated-DisplayPort-Resolution/dp/B00YOP0T7G/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1508468078&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=displayport+cable&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/GearIT-Gold-Plated-DisplayPort-Cable/dp/B01JKH6LQK/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1508468078&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=displayport%2Bcable&th=1 Any of them. All would do 8K no problem if you had the GPU and monitor to support DP 1.4. Those cables are good for all current DP revisions, which will include 1440p at 144Hz.
  13. What Displayport version is my monitor compatible with

    Any DisplayPort cable will work as they're not subject to "versions" like GPUs and monitors are, the cables are all the same (with the exception of RBR - Reduced Bit Rate - cables, which will be labelled as such). There are no DP 1.2, 1.3 etc. cables, unless they are RBR, they'll support all current DP revisions. Just don't go for the cheapest of cables you can find, go for something in the middle. If you're in the US, consider looking at Monoprice cables, they do a good job of providing quality while keeping price down. Ignore any DP 1.2 or such labelling, it's either done for marketing or by someone listing it without knowing it doesn't have a DP revision.
  14. Overpriced Audio Cables

    The high end audio market is full of snake oil products. At least it's somewhat more legitimate than the overpriced HDMI and other digital cables, as the quality of audio cables can actually make a difference, just that manufacturers take it too far and sell people stuff that doesn't make any perceivable difference. As a whole, the high end audio market is full of subjective views presented as fact and "better" (more expensive) hardware getting good reviews because of a placebo affect. If you're listening for an improvement, you're quite likely to find one if it's supposed to be better. Measuring audio quality is so unreliable and non-standardised that it's hard to actually tell what's good and what's just overpriced. There's also a lot of "that's shit" kind of attitudes in the audio market, you even see it fairly often on the audio subforum here on the LTT forums.
  15. So the ads on the forums are showing me best selling Fish Finders on Amazon. Interesting.....

      Ads are LTT's friend. I have it turned off on the forums because they're not annoying ads.
