    Once upon a time, in the American States that are United, there lived a young Dr. Swag, ignorant of the wonderful pcmasterrace. He lived his daily life and was happy, but not as happy as he would have been if he was a part of the pcmasterrace. He liked math and science and whatnot, but was ignorant of the wonderful pcmasterrace. He wasn't as bad as some techies, as illustrated in Experiences with non-techies, as he knew the monitor wasn't usually the computer and what RAM did and that it really made a difference to your PC if your RAM usage was at 100% (though we cannot confirm if he knew that more RAM isn't always better), but he wasn't that much of a techie. He thought that jigahertz was the only thing that matters in a CPU, and had no idea what the term "CPU core" or "dual core" or "quad core" even meant. This was the reason why he thought Apple was absolute trash, as the CPU in their new tablets and phones were still way under 2 ghz while some Android phones had CPUs over 2.5 ghz! Then, one day, his friends at school began playing a game named Team Fortress 2. Because of that, he started playing it too. It was a 3d game, and since it needed a lot more horsepower than Minecraft, his mid-2012 Unibody Macbook Pro couldn't run it that well. He dealt with it for a while, but eventually it became too annoying. He decided that after the next school year started he would get a gaming laptop. However, after the next school year started he realized his laptop was enough, and he didn't really need a laptop. Then, young Dr. Swag recalled that he had two friends that had built their own PCs for gaming. Why couldn't he do it too? He decided that he would build a gaming PC. He created the PC on pcpartpicker. It may not have been the best PC at the price, and looking back now he definitely has some things he would like to change if he could, but it was still a good PC, and hasn't run into any issues to date. Dr. Swag ran into some issues building it, but he solved them all either by himself or with the help of some helpful members of the LTT Forum. It was quite fast, even though it didn't have an SSD (which he is planning on putting in his desktop very soon). After building his PC, Dr. Swag didn't just begin to abandon the pcmasterrace, like many of his friends. Instead, he began to become more and more interested by how PCs worked, why they worked, what the different parts of the PC did, how those parts worked, how the communicated, etc. He began watching many videos from not just Linus but other youtubers too. He began reading very informative reviews from sites like Anandtech, which caused him to learn very much. He has learned a lot in the time since he built his first PC, but he still doesn't know that much. He is currently beginning to look at CPU architectures and how they work. Today, Dr. Swag has become an active member of the LTT Forum, and has helped many people with planning new builds, figuring out what GPU or CPU to buy, and troubleshooting problems with their PC. In his journey to becoming one of the pcmasterrace, Dr. Swag has learned very much, and he hopes to, in the future, learn even more and, after he eventually gets a degree in college, possibly design GPUs or CPUs for companies like AMD, Nvidia, or Intel.

    550 Watt Psu enough for RX590 and my system?

    Yeah it should be more than enough. Only thing I ask though... why an 8700k+B360 board instead of, say, an 8700+B360 board or 8700k+Z370/Z390?

    New iPhone 11 Launching Q3

    Guys, I have some insane news you guys are not going to believe it. Apple's next iPhone is going to launch in the same time frame it always does. I know it's very surprising and you guys probably aren't gonna believe it, but trust me, it's true.
  4. And unfortunately only 10 series and 20 series cards are supported. I was excited since I have a freesync panel and a 970 until I found that out. Feelsbad
  5. Well shit there better be some way you can patch this via software

    BlankMeidaGames data breach

    Well crap. I don't really want to change my password yet though... It sounds like they haven't increased their security so I could theoretically get breached again. Luckily I changed the password for all the websites I use the most recently and didn't change mine for BMG so it shouldn't be TOO big a deal

    Is this a good gaming pc,?

    I'm not sure about prices for you. Between an i5 8400+B360 board combo and an R5 2600 + B450 board combo I would just get whichever would end up cheaper.

    Is this a good gaming pc,?

    As others mentioned get a lower wattage but better quality psu. Also, that cpu cooler is quite weak... if you want to OC I would suggest getting a better cooler or if you don't either go for an i5 8400 + B360 board or R5 2600 + B450 if you want to save some money or get an i7 8700 + B360 board for around the same price which would be better

    Experiences with non-techies

    2400 MHz is your memory not GPU core lol. You can see from the userbenchmark thing it says CLim (which I'm assuming is the core clock speed) is more around 2100

    The LG 38GL950G; The new God of the gaming 21:9

    I WANT IT SO BAD too bad I would have to sell my kidney for one
  11. Dang... I know someone with a 6T. The next time I see them I'll see if I can try it out. It won't get locked, the mods will just move it to a different sub forum if they feel it's not following the guidelines and once you edit it to be fixed they'll move it back. I personally think your post is probably fine since videos are usually a bit unique in that you can't exactly quote text or anything

    Steam scammers on the rise

    I had a steam friend recently message saying this site gives you free games or whatever and if I got any good ones to sell them to him. I was like whatever and checked it out and it told me to link my steam account. I was getting ready to type in my credentials when I realized something felt off. Checked the url and it said about blank; if I moused over some links it gave a strange url and none of the links on the "steam" site did anything. I almost got caught by the phishing scam. I'm guessing my steam friend went to the site and got hacked by it and they sent messages to all of their friends.
  13. If anyone is interested in buying a pixel 3/pixel 3 xl or knows someone who wants to buy one I have promo codes that give you $100 off a pixel 3 or $150 off a pixel 3 xl. On top of the promotion going on right now this means you could get a pixel 3 xl for $600. Also if you use it I get $100 free google store credit

    Am I An Idiot?

    I'm sorry my friend but you should've done some research first. Rainbow 6 is a game known to have horrible SLI scaling: it's normal to see the negative scaling that you had happen. It really is that bad. You would've been better off just selling your 1080 and buying a 1080 ti/2080. At this point if you want better performance I would recommend you sell the two 1080s and buy a 1080 ti or 2080. THAT would at least give you a 30% ish performance improvement
