  1. I would say it objectively isn't very noticeable compared to the jump from 60hz to 144hz. There are people who say they cannot see a difference between 60hz and 144hz still even though it's really obvious. I would say refresh rate is more important in most cases but I was specifically looking for a resolution bump for this reason. There can be advantages to having a high resolutions in games I play like Arma 3, Rust, DayZ, and Overwatch when enemies are at long distances
  2. Thank you for answering my original question. I would say 1440 at 144hz would be best. It's difficult to tell the difference between 144 and 240hz.
  3. I disagree. Getting 144fps on games like Overwatch, CS:GO, and Fortnite at 4K isn’t too challenging for a high end system. Taking your thoughts into consideration though, I guess 1440p is the better option for what I’m looking for To an extent yes. But I’m sure most would consider a $500-$2000 monitor expensive in contrast to more lightly priced lower end monitors that more people have. Even if you don’t know my budget you can still recommend good entry level monitors that meet the specs I was looking for
  4. So right now I have a 180hz 1080p G-Sync monitor for fps games. I am becoming increasingly interested in moving to 4K in hopes of gaining more clarity on enemies that are small and far away. Are there any affordable 4K 144hz adaptive sync monitors on the market or any coming soon? Last I checked a while ago they were scarce and expensive. Thanks
  5. Hello I was going to buy a Seagate BarraCuda 8TB hard drive for my Plex server. I noticed though that any hard drive bigger than 2TB was 5400rpm instead of 7200rpm. Would this speed decrease cause any noticeable effect on streaming for a Plex server? Would it be fast enough?
  6. Hello, I recently set my Shadowplay to 2 audio tracks to separate my microphone audio from my game audio. When I open them in Windows Movie & TV it only plays one track. It works fine in my editing software but I want to be able to preview them. I tried VLC already and I couldn't get it to work
  7. The plug worked and now TightVNC is working
  8. I am using vnc viewer. I am slide using this machine for storage. Is setting up a way to transfer files between my main Windows 10 machine to the Linux server easy?
  9. What would the advantages of using Linux be? I know it's a popular OS for servers but I'm used to Windows. Is it really that easy to use?
  10. The one I found is called TightVNC i5 4590, 8GB RAM, Windows 10 It's a Minecraft server so I'm not too worried about it Onboard graphics for an i5 4590
  11. So I want to put my computer im using as a server in a closet with just Ethernet running to it. But whenever there isn't a monitor plugged into the computer remote access will not work. Is there a way to get around this without plugging a monitor into it?
  12. So I am working in a Dell prebuilt office computer. It has one HDD and a DVD drive. When I opened it up I found two normal data SATA cables and there was only one normal SATA power cable. Going into the DVD drive is one mini SATA power cable. The power cable attaches into the motherboard in a mini 6 pin connector and splits off into a normal SATA power and mini SATA power. Is it possible to buy an adapter or different cable? Or is this system limited to one drive?
  13. I want to remotely access it remotely locally on the same network at home. I want to put the tower some place I can’t hear it as well
  14. I ordered a used office/school computer off eBay with a i5 4590, 8GB RAM, and a 2TB HDD at a good price. I also ordered a 500GB SSD to use as the boot drive. I want to use this sever for storing media, running a small Minecraft server, and Plex. How should I get started? Should I use Windows 10 or Linux? What do I use for remote access?
  15. Unpacking assets is a cpu and storage task
  16. I have been looking into getting a home server just to try some things. I wanted to do things like running a Minecraft server off of it, doing one of those Raspberry Pi ad blocker servers, or using it for Plex. Is using a Raspberry Pi 4 for Plex or a MC server feasible? Or am I over gauging the capabilities of a Raspberry Pi 4? If so, what are my other options?
  17. I have been looking into purchasing a tv to do some of my casual gaming on. I am only planning on spending under $250 on a 40-50” tv. I saw this refurbished tv on sale on Newegg and it doesn’t look like a bad deal. Is it really 120hz or is it motion interpolation? Should I get this or shoot for a 4K 60hz tv?
  18. i wanted rtx minecraft now tho
  19. Should I get a 2070 Super for $500 or a water cooled RTX 2080 for $570?
  20. I can't decide what RTX 2070 Super to go with. Are the reference cards quiet and cool? Or should I go for a 3 fan card from like Gigabyte?
  21. Hello currently I am running a r7 3700x, 16GB CL14 3200mhz, and a GTX 1070 on a 1080p 180hz G-sync monitor. I have been hitting 60fps on most games but I want a little more. Since I play a lot of competitive FPS I want a little more than 60 since I value high refresh rate over visuals. I just got RDR2 on Steam and I am only able to average about 35 fps on max settings. I think that's the type of game I would want to experience with a lot of eye candy. To increase FPS which GPU should I go for? I have really only been looking at the RTX Super cards. I have been thinking between a 2070 S and 2080 S
  22. I want a bigger screen and battery isn’t getting me all day anymore
  23. I am looking to upgrade from my iPhone 7. I was looking at the 11 but the LCD screen has been putting me off. The XS has an OLED and 2x optical zoom which is appealing. I think the darks would look a lot better on iOS 13’s dark mode and make the notch less noticeable. The only thing is I would probably only be willing to buy it used due to price. Which should I get? I cannot decide
  24. We don’t have the same exact motherboard but this might help. I have the ASRock x470 Master SLI/ac and was having trouble getting my memory to get past 2166mhz. After doing this I still wasn’t able to get it to 3600mhz but I got it to 3200hz.
