  1. Youre going to be looking for something 80+ bronze or better (silver, gold, platinum) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_Plus semi, or full modular is nice for building, but non essential. And look for a name brand (corsair, evga, cooler master, bequiet, thermaltake, seasonic, silverstone) And do 500W and up is fine. 750W and higher is overkill for your setup theres a ton of choices out there, so its hard to recommend just one.
  2. obviously you wont be able to use one with a heat-sink mounted to it though. wont fit
  3. 500W is fine for an i5 and a 580. That being said, I would agree with the other posts that that particular PSU is a little sketchy, and I would suggest something at least 80+ bronze You can definitely try it if you already own the PSU. If you come into power limit issues, your rig will just lock up or crash when gaming. It wont likely damage anything, as the components have built in protections. (I wouldnt recommend it though)
  4. laptops by default have non intensive applications use your integrated GPU to save power (and heat), then automatically switch to a dedicated one in intensive workloads. Youre going to want to keep it this way if you intend to keep your battery life
  5. im not familiar with 'crimp heat sinks' do you mean heat-shrink? like to insulate a solder joint?
  6. SSD will be a night and day difference. next biggest is GPU. then if you do CPU itll be new rig time
  7. thats a bigger difference than an i5 vs i7.... https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-9700K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-9600K/4030vs4031 thats also usually ~the difference between medium and high graphics settings, etc
  8. Youre correct. I thought the cables were the same on both ends and were just like extension cables, but they are not
  9. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1660S-Super-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1660/4056vs4038 it is an 11 to 15% ish increase in performance going between standard and super. another 5% ish jumping from super to ti
  10. bottom right: Settings -> personalization -> colors
  11. when playing is there any fps counter or overlay on your screen? also Nvidia or AMD GPU? and are you screen recording / streaming?
  12. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1660S-Super-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1660/4056vs4038
  13. I am using this one right now for my sony wh-1000xm3 headphones https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07V1SZCY6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 the 5.0 ones are rare and spendy because there is no real use for them yet
  14. i might be missing the boat here, but arent psu cables universal? unless it has a proprietary connector at the psu side
  15. did you yoink the 1060 out of another rig? if so can you try putting the 1070 in another rig to see if the problems come with it?
