  1. Then don't get a filter. Filters are either restrictive to a degree or useless. Since you clean your system regularly, the filter would be pointless. After the first layer of dust, the air is just going to choose the path of least resistance and thus render the purchase pointless.
  2. Did you try formatting it with Disk Management?
  3. Having back ups is always a good idea. Even if your system runs smoothly and you never have any problems. If you have anything worth keeping, you should back it up. The advice is sound.
  4. If you get 16GB of memory now, you won't have to worry about it for a very long time!
  5. DDU is Display Driver Uninstaller Always cleanly uninstall drivers, before installing new ones. Even when updating existing drivers. Avoids a plethora of headaches.
  6. No one is saying he has to spend that much money. I know what you mean and I totally get you. But fighting someones desires and wants can only bring you so far. Explain why, what and how and then lower the price accordingly. I imagine he set the bar so high because he wanted to let people know that he wants a high end system. Having a graphic designers PC for a long run is what counts here. CS:GO and RL do not. A $1000 pc would serve him very well. But a 2,5k system would serve him even better. Especially since he has to buy peripherals and a monitor.
  7. Never mind the nay-sayers. If that's what he wants that's his thing. What's his graphic design level at?
  8. What kinds of monitors is he looking to get? With a 4k budget, it doesn't matter what he'll be playing. He can play, stream and design whatever he wants.
  9. What he said. Just make sure you apply it to the screen properly to cover the corners, which are almost always the first thing to get hit.
  10. They do. Even the best screen protectors are worn out by your pocket and everyday use. If you don't have one, the Gorilla Glass takes that wear and tear instead.
  11. And buying non pro? Why? Oh, to at least answer your question partially: Macs are less prone to overheating than macbooks, but their design is still inefficient compared to a regular PC due to their "design aesthetics" and people using them wrong.
  12. Anything that's a generation or 2 older is great. Especially if you can find a flagship. Even Huawei devices. If you can find the Mate 10 Pro for this price, you'll have a top of the line phone with a normal working Android system. The limitations are beginning with the new mate 30 series released these days. Not trying to convince, just clarifying. Other than that, I'd also check for a Galaxy S8, Lg whichever flagship was the previous one since their prices tend to drop like brick but are otherwise great devices...something along those lines. If she's searching for absolutely latest gen devices, then she's gonna have a bad time, since mid range devices are just above that range, especially in the EU. You could also wait for black Friday sale. That should drop prices significantly Tl;dr: look for previous gen flagships, they'll do wonders for the money. I'm sure there's some deals to be found. Also, wait for a black friday sale and then buy. In the mean time check out GSM arena and familiarize yourself with the market. Shouldn't take long.
  13. Yeah, I noticed the wording. We'll have to wait and see. This isn't the cynic in you, this is the realty of gaming today. Whatever happens, though, I hope games become more modular. Why isn't this a thing for over 10 years now, I don't know. It's been a feature in software since forever. I don't like the shape of the controller. I like the feature set it offers but the shape of it just doesn't do it. I can't hold it for very long and when I do, it's uncomfortable AF. Xbox has a much more ergonomic and comfortable shape. Makes it feel less of a struggle to play longer sessions.
  14. Allowing users to install just multiplayer or single player parts of the game instead of the whole thing, is a pretty boss move. Will save a ton of space, I imagine. Hope others follow suit.
  15. If the market was moving forward we would've heard a bit more about it in the tech news in terms of new products. Maybe even more compact designs. But ever since the release of the 1xxx and 2xxx series nvidia GPUs which are powerful as hell and Laptop manufacturers not shoving "thin and light" down everyone's throats and actually producing some breathable laptop designs, I think the EGPU market is kind of slowing to a stagnant state. I guess demand isn't as strong... Blackmagic still seems to be operational though, judging by their website.
