  1. Nah that actually looks good. Tbh the backside doesn't really matter too much unless that side has a glass panel but in terms of organization I'd say you're fine. I'm just happy if the main part of my case looks good, cba about the back.
  2. I've suggested iPhones and she's really not a fan for whatever reason. An older model seems like a great idea especially on the cost side of things thanks
  3. With the absolutely insane amount of phones out today I thought I would recruit you all for some help. I'm looking for a decent phone for my mom. Her current phone is a Huawei P20 Lite I think? It's a bit sh*t and doesn't want to connect to Android Auto in her Kia so she's getting frustrated. She's almost 60 which isn't really that old but just old dog new tricks so something with as simple a UI and settings as possible will be a bonus, she doesn't care about Android's infinite customizability. Storage size isn't a huge issue either as she doesn't have many apps or photos. She wants wireless charging because she has that in her Kia as well and wants to use it. I would like to be on the budget end of the spectrum but I'd probably be able to get into the £600-700 range if it was justified. She isn't majorly swayed by how a phone looks but if it comes with a sparkly blue back (like her Huawei does) or something similar it'll just make her happy. I'm also trying to stick the major brands as well (Samsung, Google, LG, OnePlus etc.) not Chinese stuff like Huawei. Any help would be amazing! Thanks!

  6. I mean I'd just go from Android to Android but definitely hop off Huawei cause America said bad Chinese do bad tings and Google said no no Android updates for Huawei
  7. Really no noticeable difference, games still aren't that dependent on CPU unless the game is made that way.
  8. The OS itself doesn't take up that much but I find that I have a lot of random programs and files that it adds up and I always like having a little wiggle room. Tbh it might just be me cause I did game design for uni and UE4, 3d modeling files and stuff take up a chunk of space.
  9. Seems good so far but if you're recording gameplay I'd definitely just get high capacity HDD for cold storage and finished videos just cause 1 TB fills up real quick with games and videos on it, my 1 TB SSD is basically 90% full just because of games. I'd also spring for a slightly higher capacity OS drive because just in my use case I maxed out my 250 gig SSD within 6 months of using my PC. My new build is either gonna have 500 or 1 TB SSD just so I don't have to think about space on my OS.
  10. You can totally setup everything without a case for testing purposes. Just use the motherboard box as a little stand for the mobo, plug everything in and go for it. Loads of people do this before building their PC in the case so they don't have to remove everything if something comes doa.
  11. So I'm watching Gladiator again and I'm getting a hankering for some good old Total War type grand strategy, battle gameplay with the Roman Empire (either playing as or against). Which Total War (or similar game) should I re-download (or buy). I have Attila which is by far my favorite Total War with about 250 hrs played as well as Total War: Rome 2 with only 91 hrs played. Obviously Attila is the newest and thus probably most perfected of the Roman era Total War games but Rome 2 might be good to revisit despite dated graphics and features. Or are there any other similar games I should take a look at? I do have Ryse: Son of Rome which I actually quite enjoyed the first time through but I'm doubting it's replayability. Thanks!
  12. Can I still wake it up with a mouse/keyboard if I put it to hibernate?
  13. I currently have a beefy, dedicated gaming desktop in my office but I also have a Razer Blade 15 (2018) that I am thinking about trying to turn into a living room PC. Is this possible? And I mean that by basically having it closed and plugged in 24/7 being able to turn it off/on (or sleep/wake up) without having to open the lid.
  14. Way better than wifi for me (mostly). I don't really see an upgrade in speed but definitely better ping and stability overall.
  15. I have a Razer Raiju Tournament Edition that Steam recognizes as an Xbox One controller that has zero response in game, not in menus nor in actual gameplay yet works for other games like DOOM and Dirt 4. Windows recognizes it properly as well and I've tried many tricks from across the internet with Steam Big Picture stuff, controller configuration etc. I'm at the point now of looking up cheap Xbox controllers to run out and buy right now so I can at least just play the damn game. Anyone have some solutions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
