    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Ben17 in Did this guy plug Power SW wrong?   
    Power and reset switches don't have polarity. All they do it short the connection that sparks boot up or force reset sequence. This is why you can turn your PC on by simply shorting PWR +/- switches with a screwdriver.

    You can build yourself a WAAYYYY better system in that kind of a budget.
    Windows keys can be had fr pretty cheap from sites like eBay, kinguin, scdkeys, etc.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in WARNING- Be careful when buying Ryzen gen 2 or 3 motherboards   
    I mean you're literally complaining about something that could've been prevented by spending 5 minutes on the internet.
     
    Just go on any PC related forum and ask there. Or if you're super lazy, just go to pcpartpicker.com, enter PC components and it will automatically check their compatibility and tell you whether or not you need to update something.
     
    As for the guy who has been "building PC for years". He is either building one PC every few years, or he is making stuff up about his experience. Bios updates and CPU "backwards" compatibility has been a thing since I can remember. 
     
    This is why we always ask for people's build when they asking something about compatibility or something about their new build. Always ask others because 1 pair of eyes is good, entier LTT forum worth of eyes is better. Its not a good idea to think "Oh well, it was this way some time ago, so it probably hasn't changed".

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Metallus97 in Reccomended GPU for my CPU and motherboard?   
    As @JM21 said, you need to upgrade the entire system. Getting new GPU won't do anything good because your CPU will bottleneck the hell out of it.

    You are probably overdue for a whole system upgrade, I'd consider the R5 2400G and a new B450 motherboard with new DDR4 RAM. Get a new GPU later when you can afford it.

    Well, in this case, we're both wrong and right. OP has to figure out what board hes got so that we can actually help him.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Corrupted in Ultimate boomer law - "joke" bill bans phones for people under 21   
    USA.... You can own firearm at an age of 14, but cannot own a god damn phone before turning 21.
     
    The argument "X people use Y thing while driving is causing accidents" can go so deep, you will need a flashlight to see.
     
    Another point is "suicide prevention". Question - Where do you draw the line between phone and a tablet? Or better - What is a smartphone? This reminds me about our ridiculous "TV License" law here in Ireland. It states that all TV owners must have a license, but it doesn't really specify what a TV is. It only outlines its basic functions that require you to get the license.
     
    So same applies to smartphones. It doesn't specify what a "smartphone" is. I can easily go on Amazon and find a decent tablet under 10 inches that works exactly like a smartphone, but isn't classified as one.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from SkilledRebuilds in How come, people get smooth gameplay with under 60fps. ?   
    Its because of consistent frame times after rendering the video.  This is why 60FPS gameplay on youtube will always look smoother compared to 60 FPS real time gameplay.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Jumballi in Can gtx 1070 handle 1440p 144-165 hz?   
    Horrible idea. SLI is dead tech. If you want more power, get better GPU.
  17. Agree
    PopsicleHustler reacted to Jumballi in Can gtx 1070 handle 1440p 144-165 hz?   
    No, my 2080(1080 ti) can barely do 120fps on high. You’ll be lucky to do 144hz 1080p high on a 1070.
  18. Agree
    PopsicleHustler reacted to Jumballi in Can gtx 1070 handle 1440p 144-165 hz?   
    Gsync helps with frame stutter, tearing, and super low fps situations when you couldn’t hit 60 before. It’s not a replacement for 100+ fps
  19. Agree
    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Jumballi in Can gtx 1070 handle 1440p 144-165 hz?   
    For me personally, after playing on 165Hz monitor and constant 120+ FPS, anything below 100FPS feels horrible. Even in Witcher 3.
  20. Agree
    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Jumballi in Can gtx 1070 handle 1440p 144-165 hz?   
    You simply won't achieve any decent FPS in those games.

    Depends on what you throw at it. Modern AAA games is a no no. Competitive games like LoL Dota2 CS GO will work fine.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Whiro in What's the point of the rx580   
    RX580 is just a refresh of RX480 made to compete with newly released GTX1060. The idea was to release a GPU that is just a bit faster than GTX1060 and cheaper than RX480.
