    Should I return my laptop?

    You think the GPU is dying or is it driver corruption?

    Should I return my laptop?

    A year or two I think, but doesnt that usually take forever
  4. Hey there, I recently bought a gaming laptop and its been going strong for the past three weeks. However, yesterday it had terrible artifacting and would crash when I launched any games. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, and it seems to have gone away. I'm worried that the issues will come back. Should I be fine, or should I return the laptop while I still have the chance? (I have a week left) I don't want to miss the return date and in two weeks have the artifacting come back Thanks!
  5. No bigger than 15.6" pls. Are there any laptops with a DGPU that have ok battery life, or will I have to go the integrated route? Preferably not too bulky either. I really dont care about anything else, I just need battery life (but a DGPU would be nice) Thanks

    $1000 Laptop recommendation pls

    Epic! 1050 should be fine, but dang I'm super impressed. I'm obsessed with thinkpads, and it seems they just gave it the gamer touch. I'll definitely be picking one up, thanks!!!

    Good idea, I love lenovo! Weird I didn't think about it. Do those support external GPUs? You just need a type c connection right?
  9. Hi there, I decided to give up my desktop to be closer to my boyfriend and to be more productive (not that you care) Anyways, I have a budget of $1000. I do mean $1000, I can't do $1100. I care about: - battery life - portability (no heavier/thicker than a macbook pro sized device) - nice build quality is a plus - gaming would be a nice bonus (I just want to be able to run CS:GO and minecraft, battery life and other factors and portability take priority) - 14-15.6" On a side note, do devices in this range support external gpu enclosures? As that would be ideal, if I could get it for this price. Thanks so much!

    Noob question. Is this compatible? CPU/Mobo

    ooof, I'm really sorry about that I too was shocked that he had so many posts ya 7700K is the best you can do on it. be warned tho, it's hot af if you don't delid what is your current i5 not doing for u? idk how much of an upgrade the 7700K will be depending on what u need to do.

    GTX 1050 Ti artifacting?

    Have you tried installing a different driver version? If so (and it doesn't fix it), you might be out of luck

    Ultra Silent PSU for 8700K @ 5GHZ and gtx 1080/1180

    so again, specific case.
