  1. Yep, they will all work well.
  2. They're all pretty much the same, but personally I would pick the first one. U.2 is a slightly outdated way of connecting a storage drive to your motherboard, it has been mostly replaced by M.2.
  3. My brother's has about the same wobble in both positions. I don't think it'll be a problem but don't be rough with it.
  4. That doesn't seem normal. I just tested it with my brother's new 3DS XL and it has less than one cm of wobble. If you don't have the XL one I would think there would be even less. Edit: By that I mean it was too little to measure, probably like a quarter of a centimeter. Is that with the screen flat or at the small angle?
  5. That's just the main partition on that drive, meaning you can install an OS to it because it's partition table in is MBR format. To install games or programs to an SSD you need to set the install location. In steam you need to add a game library location and with software you'll need to change the install location in the wizard.
  6. Hah, and Microsoft says that Edge is better than Chrome. It must be true, gonna switch right now!
  7. In what regards? I'm quite interested to hear. And yes, this community is mostly mature, we don't start flame wars and act like 10 year olds that side with one product and stay with it. I'm open minded and I have tried MANY operating systems. I've found that Windows works best for my workstations and Linux works best for my servers. If MacOS works for you, then that's great. Don't pick something just because others use it; pick something that will personally work for you.
  8. Netscape browser is better than Chrome because I say so
  9. Not really, even if I had infinite money I would stick with Windows for the application support and customization.
  10. I'd be willing to bet that my PC is faster than a Mac of equal value. Macs seem faster than your average Windows laptop because they have SSDs compared to HDDs, but Macs aren't magically faster than Windows based PCs.
  11. I wouldn't call 99% of this forum stubborn, but here are some reasons I can't use a Mac (in terms of MacOS because the hardware is just no competition price/performance) This is my personal view, don't feel like these are facts, it's simply why it wouldn't work for me personally: I have used Macs before, so these aren't made up. 1. Lack of applications and games 2. Too simple: Advanced options are hidden deeply away 3. Not customizable enough for my likings Here are some things that I like about MacOS, but these are also available on Linux for free 1. Simple software updates 2. Unified themes Not complete lists; just some quick thoughts. I didn't want to answer like a troll, so these are the honest reasons why "we stubborn PC users" (ie. me) don't use a Mac.
  12. When you start task manager the CPU usage spikes up, I don't think it's the malware causing that. EDIT: As other people already said
  13. Probably your hard drive. My HDD is the loudest thing in the whole PC while doing virtualization off of it.
  14. Read what I said
  15. I'd really suggest the ModMic, that's what I use for everything, but you want a desktop mic, so I'm not really sure what you should get. Maybe a shotgun mic on a stand?
