  1. Honestly... I'd say it depends on what your budget is first. I'd always recommend a separate audio amp plus some decent speakers to go with it. Smallest I can recommend is probably two of the Cambridge audio minx min 22, plus their Cambridge audio one pre-amp to go with them. Still got to buy different pieces rather than a whole system at once but I'm sure it'll do you better for upgrade-ability and quality.
  2. They have their uses, especially in schools and enterprise settings. I have implemented Chromebooks into primary schools as they are nice and simple for younger users. They are also quite nice to manage through the Chrome management console so that's a bonus.
  3. Try enabling CSM and turning off Windows UEFI secure boot?
  4. Are your boot options set to legacy or UEFI? If you've installed a UEFI version of windows then it will not boot under legacy. However, I would recommend using UEFI, especially with an NVME drive.
  5. Honestly, these come up quite a lot from here in the UK. Nothing wrong with that board. Just watch out for customs charges as that would be coming from China.
  6. Use a Mini-ITX Board, they go for around £25-£30 here in the UK. I am on the verge of buying one myself currently. Not sure what the market is like in the US though.
  7. I reckon I have spent around £300 on just my parents and twin brother. However... I also reckon I have spent close to this or more on food, spirits and more alcohol this year... Very boozy Christmas and New year.... Don't judge me....
  8. Ah I see, the weird part though is that if I do move my task-bar to another side, it will not disappear. Only when it is at the bottom does it disappear for me...
  9. Locking the task-bar only prevents the movement of it though...
  10. Hiya, Thanks for the help... Although apparently 'C:\WINDOWS\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml' does not exist... So now I don't know what to do. Cheers, Brennan.
  11. Hello there, I have been having this problem for months on end now and it is really grinding my gears. I have this problem where my task-bar will disappear randomly and for no apparent reason other than the fact that it wants to p*ss me off. Generally, it will only happen in MS Edge Dev browser but it has happened within Google Chrome as well. Below is a screenshot. The task-bar will appear again only after i have pressed the Windows key and then it is gone again if I go back into Edge. It is fine in other applications (including with edge open in the background) but when I tab back into Edge it starts again. Edge is not full screen. I have tried the below settings with no effect whatsoever. If I turn on Automatically hide task-bar in desktop mode then it will never appear again even when I hover over it, once again only appearing when I hit the Windows key. Please help me regain task-bar functionality again, I may just switch from Windows entirely otherwise. (bit drastic I know but I am a keen Linux user also). Cheers, Brennan.
  12. My Rig hasn't changed much since the last time it was on here... Just wanted to add an image with my second GTX 1080 in it... Apologies for the poor images. I got my brother to play the new Halo Reach on my rig so I could take the second image.
  13. LTT have already tried to do this, just not quite on the same scale that you describe.
  14. No worries, I would recommend Slax Linux, absolutely tiny install and it works best installed straight to a USB stick. I believe they've made a Debian based install for this too so it should be easy to get set up.
  15. That is also what I believed and experienced though. My HD 7970 works fine in Linux and was fine after a Windows 10 reinstall. Might be worth testing to see if you get any issues with a bootable Linux flash drive and see where you go from there.
