    My PC is slow even though I have decent specs?

    How are your thermals? The system might be throttling.

    2080ti worth it currently?

    I don't see that much value in getting to 144fps. Of course the more fps the better, but to be honest in most games just getting above 60 is fine with me. Especially single player games.
  3. I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but here I go.. What are you doing with your old rigs? Sell them? Dump them? Or maybe use them as a minecraft server? If you sell them or dump them, do you keep some components? I was thinking of getting a new computer around next year so I can use my old one as a linux server to run stuff on. I guess I'll reuse the SSD for the new build.

    2080ti worth it currently?

    I still can't see a reason to upgrade from my 1070, even on 1440p.

    Birthday Build for Kid

    If he ever wants another, newer game to run on it I wanted it to be good enough. I got the 1200 budget, so I threw in the 2060. Was not sure about the case, I liked the R5 so I just picked that one.

    Birthday Build for Kid

    A 2.5" SSD is only about 10$ cheaper for me, is that worth it? What manufacturer do you recommend?

    Birthday Build for Kid

    I'm not a fan of a second hard drive, even though I know it's better value. I don't trust the kid to install his stuff on the right drive, he's around 9 and I don't really know him. Thanks though.

    Birthday Build for Kid

    Can't I update the bios myself?
  9. Hey, what do you think about this build? It's for 1080p gaming (mostly fortnite) and budget is around 1000-1200 US$ CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B350-F Storage: Samsung SSD EVO 1TB m.2 RAM: Corsair Vengance LPX 2x8GB GPU: Gigabyte RTX 2060 Windforce OC 6G Case: Fractal Define R6 Black PSU: be quiet! Pure Power 11 500W
  10. HP Laptops have a recovery mode. https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04758961 Maybe you can reinstall Windows with that? You would not need an external media.
  11. I'm still using a Macbook Pro from 2009. Doesn't go higher than El Capitan but it fulfills my needs of watching youtube and shit posting from the comfort of being in bed.

    Worth switching to iPhone?

    Your problem might be that you have a Samsung phone. They aren't known to be the best company when it comes to update cycles and long-term support. I suggest you to look into android one phones or maybe a OnePlus. iPhones aren't bad, just really pricey.

    Computer only boots on second attempt

    I've had the same problem with an Asus board at work. You could try updating the BIOS and see if that helps.

    Windows key not working

    Maybe contact Microsoft support.
  15. Most games aren't really optimized for Linux. If you already have Windows installed, I can't really see a reason to use steamOS.
