  1. How to remove bottleneck?

    I could if anyone knew how much you could spend on one. A 1060 or RX580 would personally be about the max I would go. You could probably get away with something higher depending on budget. If they're too expensive then maybe a 2nd hand 970/980 or 1050ti/RX570 if you want slightly cheaper new ones.
  2. Apparently I didn't look back far enough
  3. How to remove bottleneck?

    As others have said, just get a better graphics card as that is the weakest component there.
  4. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-42309371 So, it seems that HP left a keylogger in the synaptics driver. They've issued a patch that apparently removes it now, so might be worth updating that if you have one of the affected laptops. This is in addition to the keylogger found in May which was included with the audio driver 'accidentally'.
  5. I need help!

    Assume that motherboard is a Biostar one? If so, it looks like it is on the CPU supported list. Make sure you are on the latest BIOS/Agesa etc. to ensure it is properly supported before you install the new CPU, however, it may also be supported on an earlier BIOS revision, anyway. http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=623#cpusupport
  6. As others have said, I would go for something cheaper (unless Oak is cheap af for some reason there) if you're going to paint it.

    That's exactly what a dictionary does.

Quite literally the single most comfy thing I've had to sit my ass on for 7 hours a day.
  11. The UK also does have multiple competing ISPs in about 99% of the country though and if one suddenly started any shit, they would be dropped by everyone almost instantly for a different ISP. A lot of the US from the sound of it, purposely through collusion between ISPs or through ridiculous local laws etc. don't have competition. I really don't think there would be much of a problem to be honest if you went to the ISPs and said they have 2 options. 1.They can continue with net neutrality. 2. You have to open up whatever cables etc. you have to competition for a reasonable access price to other ISPs and you do not have to abide net neutrality once proper competition is established. Anyone caught colluding in an anti competitive way gets real fines etc. I bet you 100% they'd be going with net neutrality.
  12. Laptop for £500

    Good luck getting any of those in the UK new for less than £500.00, with everything the guy actually wants to be in the laptop... I picked the other one out for a reason. FYI - 7th gen Acer aspire 5 is currently on sale on Amazon (cheapest one I can see which includes an SSD), but is still over £500.00, and has bang average reviews and a . The non-SSD versions are pretty much £500.00. Also the Aspire 5 (around that price, anyway) don't even come with a 1080p screen either, while the Yoga does have.
  13. Laptop for £500

    If he wants new, there isn't too much about for that price tbh with those features. About the best I can find are this Lenovo at PC World for £379.00 at present (link) - and i think this might only be valid for today at that price too. It has a 14" screen, and backlit keyboard. It only has a HDD in it, but you could put an ssd in there instead with the under £500 rule. The RAM can apparently be upgraded to 8gb too if needed. No idea if that AMD cpu is any good though or not.
  14. Brocoiner Virus???

    Use some decent antivirus/antimalware, boot in safe mode. Run a scan & removed it.
  15. What is your future computer build?

    Personally I would go for something like the below (motherboard - optional - but I prefer to match case with the motherboard size - but have a look in to reviews. The one below is overkill, but does come with wifi built in). I picked out similar items to what you had, but you could go cheaper if needed on things like the the motherboard & cooler etc. You can also get the S340 elite in white for $20 more. A windows 10 pro key on Amazon is under $10.00 at present (slightly shady, but Amazon will help you out if it doesn't work and the seller turns out to be a ballbag, but it should be perfectly fine). I would also pickup a 2nd stick of whatever RAM you get, if you go for a single stick, whenever RAM prices settle down to something more sensible.
