  1. Yea I mean, any CPU will do the trick, but I program heavily so I would prefer if my compile times were lower. Especially using inefficient transpilers like Babel for Webpack and optimising compilers for C++. Given how much programming I do, I would much rather save myself snippets of time by getting a good CPU with a bunch of threads for parallel compilation.
  2. I should mention, I'll be doing some productivity-related tasks. Occasional rendering and frequently programming (thus compiling programs and running them) which will require a beefy CPU.
  3. I'm about to buy an RX 5700 XT. I want to know a good CPU that goes with this GPU? Ideally I want to be able to upgrade next 1 or 2 gen GPUs without changing CPU. Currently I have selected the 3700X, however I'm happy to go with the 3800X or 3900X if I can upgrade the GPU in 2 generations time and keep the same CPU. I'm not sure if this is plausible.

  4. I see a lot of people asking for what I would play. Let's imagine ultra settings on RDR2, however I'm asking in general, on high/ultra settings, for any given title.
  5. Could anyone link me to a thread or guide on the web that mentions which GPUs are good for which monitor/refresh rate ranges? I'm looking for a GPU that will fit 1440p/165Hz without overkilling it, but a list of all the common denominations would be nice to see. I couldn't find one personally.
  6. During loading, the game isn't simply moving & fiddling with memory. Some processing is also taking place. A few things I can think of, that the game is doing: 1. Creating appropriate memory stores (stacks/heaps) 2. Processing assets from disk, and moving relevant pieces to working RAM (so a copy pasta from your RAM disk to your non-disk part of RAM) 3. Generating working memory for your character's current context (position, other objects nearby, etc) 4. Moving assets into VRAM (as you mentioned) Keep in mind that the game doesn't have full control over your PC. When the game allocates memory, it has to ask the OS to do it - which takes time. (Of course there are allocation strategies that keep this to a minimum). Other such conditions occur, such as processes competing for resources. It's unfortunately not as simple as working directly from your RAM disk.
  7. Hi everyone, My Razer Naga Chroma (2016)'s left click just stopped working. After generic attempts such as PC restart, plugging/unplugging, and driver updates, I resorted to the internet. After some short digging, I found that there must be debris stuck between the actuator and the button itself. I tried using canned air on the mouse button, however the outside compartment is practically sealed, so this didn't help. Eventually, I realised I must open the mouse. Unfortunately, to do so, you must peel off the Teflon-y mouse feet. I managed to do so, take off the screws, and clean out the mouse, and it works, however in peeling off the mouse feet, I scrunched them up and also left glue on the pad sockets. I now need to get new mouse feet, since the mouse drags horribly on my mousepad. Does anyone know of any shop in the UK (online or otherwise) that might sell these mouse feet? I haven't found any on either the Razer website or Amazon.
  8. My 2nd pair (in 4 years) of Razer Krakens has broken - they keep disconnecting and connecting back, however I believe this is due to an accidental yank of the cable from a few days ago. Not sure if this is fixable (could happen to be software), however I will investigate possible solutions (if you know something, let me know). For now, however, I want to consider buying a different set of headphones. I was considering the Razer Kraken 7.1 v2, however I'm not sure I want yet another pair of Razer Krakens, and I've heard that the sound quality isn't that good. Music, in particular, is important for me - I listen to a lot of electronic stuff, like trap and future house. I also require a good microphone, since I will be using voice chat and gaming as well. What are your recommendations? What headphones have you had good experience with? I'll accept recommendations from any price range, however am most likely to buy something around £90.
  9. I applied to a tech college a while ago. Went to the interview. Finished the questionnaire. Had my chat with the administrator about the courses I want to study. We had 10 minutes left before the interview was over, so we had some small talk about computers. I said that I recently purchased a 144FPS monitor, and the motion is amazing in comparison to 60, however certain games don't benefit as much. 'I personally don't notice the difference after about 24FPS' I couldn't tell whether he was joking or not, but I laughed irregardless. I believe he was not joking.
  10. Regular expression for each card number, then check which card is a match - if there's more than one match, you would have to sort that out and take it into account next time.
  11. Intel's release of the i9 series CPUs reminds me of this one teacher I had. He owns an Alienware and thinks there's nothing better than it. Here are two conversations I've had with him about PCs: Me: What CPU do you have? Teacher: An i7 Me: How many cores? Teacher: 6 with hyperthreading Me: Wow, a 12 core i7? Teacher: No it has 6 cores so 7 in total with hyperthreading Me: [lolwhat] *questions intelligence* *walks away* Second conversation: Teacher (telling class about his PC): It's an Alienware, it has an i9. (thanks for being vague) Me: Sir ... i9s don't exist. Teacher: Oh yes they do, because I have one. Friend: Sir there really is no such thing as an i9. Teacher: There is, believe me. Me & Friend: [ok]
  12. Wouldn't be hard to just privately email people on their own email addresses, and I can sure make a program for that
  13. A while ago one of my friends at school created a 'meme page' of some of the generally disliked teachers in our school, however the school later found out that he was the creator, as all of page followers were questioned and they had to give it away eventually. They only knew it was him because he told them. Out of sheer curiosity (I have no plan to do this)... If I was to do the same thing, except I wouldn't tell anyone, and thus no one, even after questioning, would be able to give away any information that it was me that created it, would the school be able to somehow enforce tracking and find it was me? Would they be able to take the page down?
