    Anyone else not crazy about RGB?

    Personally I don't mind it on the whole. Done tastefully it can be nice. Like in my PC I only have Trident Z RGB RAM. The only other RGB things I have are my keyboard, which I usually leave on a slightly turquoise electric blue and my mouse which has been the orange SteelSeries backlight since the day I got it and I probably won't bother changing it. Too much RGB can be annoying like I'd never own one of the rave machines Linus has built on that channel in the past but I think a little is good and my computer has turned heads more in my dorm room when I have people over since I added it.

    Best story game you've played?

    Fallout series Dishonoured Assassin's Creed Black Flag Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor Tomb Raider (Not a huge story but fun nonetheless)
  3. Unless I'm mistaken the 2600K has an iGPU so could you not use that for viewing the programs he needs to install since that won't be GPU intensive?

    How long do you use your pcs?

    Depends on the hardware. As a student, I don't have a lot of money lying around for PC upgrades so I tend to go for whatever gives me the most performance for the money I have at the time. I do tend to try and spend the little extra if I think it'll give me a bit longer out of the part. Like some of the parts in my computer (SSD, Fans) are now reaching 5 years. My disk drive (I know it's ancient) is about 10 years old. Everything else is about a year old now but before that, most things had been in my computer for about 4 years. I don't see myself needing to upgrade for another 2 to 3 years on the CPU (Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9GHz) and the GPU will hopefully last me another 4 (GTX 1070 and I only play at 1080p). As to OP's question. I think if you buy a really high end PC you might bet 10 years out of it if you're extremely lucky but you won't still be at ultra settings by then.

    How to teach someone PC hardware?/Where to start?

    I'm trying to remember how I got into PC hardware and I think it was mostly when I figured I wanted to build a computer. I didn't know what computers were like inside but my parents were about to throw out an old computer and they let me take it apart first. Maybe get an old second hand computer and take it apart with him and maybe try and put it back together. Then move onto like your own PC and show him how it's the same but different from the computer the two of you took apart. Watch some of the mad stuff Linus and Jay do on their channels cause that'll really get him excited.

    Ryzen 4000 on B350

    True but either way I probably won't look at upgrading until Ryzen 4000 since the 1600 is enough right now and doesn't bottleneck my GTX 1070 as far as I can see

    Ryzen 4000 on B350

    I'm pretty sure they said they're using AM4 until 2020 at the earliest so should be fine. Not sure AGESA is but here's hoping. As far as I know ASUS isn't too bad to doing BIOS updates right? And with any luck AMD will play ball and let us use first gen MOBOs with 4th gen chips. If I can't get it I'll probably just end up getting a top tier Ryzen 3000 series when the prices drop later down the line.
  8. Okay so I know it's only Ryzen 3000 that's coming out this year but I have a question that's been bugging me recently. I don't think I need to upgrade my Ryzen 5 1600 right now but I know that AMD have said that they're going to support the AM4 socket up until 2020 (presumably for Ryzen 4000) so my question is this. Assuming AMD don't lock the compatibility, and ASUS give a BIOS update. Is there any reason I couldn't run a hypothetical Ryzen 4000 series chip in a B350 MOBO?

    Pc upgrade.

    Upgrading to 16GB of RAM is probably not worth it unless it's dirt cheap (which it probably isn't) or you need to open way more chrome tabs. I would agree with the others. If you are hitting a RAM limit then chuck in another 2GB and save up for a new platform overall. With the new Ryzen 3 chips coming out this year you might be able to convince your relatives to either get you some of the parts you need or some money towards them.
  10. I was speaking in a hypothetical. I couldn't remember what the OP was playing on. It could be 180 to 190 and my point still stands
  11. Give it a few months and that may not be true. You have to consider though. In a lot of titles, the increase in framerates may only be about 10-15% but you have to pay maybe 20-30% more. And depending on the part. If that extra cost puts you from 110FPS to 120FPS when you're playing on a 60 or 75Hz panel, it really makes no sense to spend the extra.

    [Poll] What GPU do you use for gaming?

    I've only been gaming on PC a few years. Picked up a Maxwell GTX 960 about the time the 1060 launched then got given a used GTX 1070 for Christmas last year so stepped up to Pascal. I can't really see myself needing to upgrade for a while since I only play at 1080p. Maybe I'll upgrade when i start struggling to get 60FPS on like Med-High settings in a few years at 1080. Step up to something that can do that at maybe 1440p so I can upgrade my monitors.
  13. I mean I've been using OLED screens on my phones for years, as have the rest of my family. Never had even the slightest hint of burn in on a phone.
  14. Okay well that might work. It just seems less elegant than the OnePlus camera.
  15. This looks great other than a couple of things. That camera will last one drop when the camera's in selfie mode. OnePlus' solution on the 7 Pro is much better. No OLED. Cheaper phones have had OLED screens for years. I mean they're not exactly new tech. The original Galaxy S had one and their A40 which costs about half as much as the Zenfone also has one so there's not really any excuse
