  1. Is it worth upgrading?

    I forgot about that. But, I don't like sending things off with my data on it.. I don't know why, I just don't. I guess I'll backup my stuff, wipe the phone and take it to Argos (where I bought the phone).
  2. Hi everyone! I've been experiencing problems with my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S7) recently and I'm not sure whether I should upgrade or not. I've been having problems with WiFi calling and not being able to answer or decline a phone call. My phone was bought new 3 months ago and I really don't want to get rid of it already. It's been very well taken care of, with an Otterbox case and regular cleaning. I've been thinking whether or not I should move back to iPhone. I know the fix, which is a network reset. I did this about 2 days ago and it fixed it until today. I really don't want to keep network resetting. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I did find an ultrabook with a 940MX that's about the same price so it'd be nicer to have the extra graphics horsepower if I'm honest. It's here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-S510UQ-BQ204T-15-6-Inch-Screen-VivoBook/dp/B073WH686H/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1532100182&sr=8-4

    It's in the link at the 2nd to last line of the post.

    To be honest, the 8700 and 1070 would be a much better pair than an i5 and a 1080 Ti. Save yourself the money as it's not really worth buying a medium-high end CPU and an absolutely overkill GPU..
  6. Hi! From what I can find there's not much about. I've found two on Amazon so far. If I find any I'll update this post. https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-ZenBook-UX430UA-GV415T-14-Inch-Nano-Edge/dp/B078H7WSR1/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1532100182&sr=8-2 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-720S-13IKB-13-3-Inch-UltraHD-4K-Ultrabook/dp/B07DDL1463/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1532100182&sr=8-10 Hope this helped

    It's likely down to budget. Also, I'd like to think that the new i5 based build would do quite well with most modern games, pushing 50-60fps at 1080p no problem. It'd be good for streaming and recording provided you'd turn down the settings just a touch with demanding games.
  8. Looking for some Upgrades.

    A Ryzen based system will last you quite a while as it's unlocked right out of the box enabling overclocking and it's a very capable processor provided you have the right specs to go with it. I think that https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/s3brmq would be quite good for your requirements as it has a 1080 Ti and it's an R7/X470 build. Hope this helped
  9. Which is better?

    Yes. The Celeron isn't much older but would still struggle compared to the i7 as the Celeron lacks features that the i7 has due to it being a budget processor.
  10. Looking for some Upgrades.

    Hi! Do you plan on overclocking? This will help determine how much is spent on each part. The HDD, SSD, case and PSU should be okay to keep. As @jeffmeyer5295 said, it's better to start over with a budget like that.
  11. Which is better?

    The i7 without a doubt. The Celeron is a budget processor, which isn't designed to compete against i7s.
  12. Help. Windows 10 no internet access (red x)

    Hi. Try replacing your ethernet cable, it may be a fault with that. If that does not work, it's probably a faulty ethernet port, which would be a motherboard issue. If you are experiencing a faulty ethernet port, the only way you'll fix the motherboard issue is if you RMA the board to the manafacturer. Hope this helped
  13. Samsung S7 problems

    Hi everyone. Since I last posted, another problem has occurred. When receiving a phone call, no answer or reject screen pops up. All that happens is my ringtone plays and my phone vibrates. Nothing. Can anyone help please? Thanks!
  14. Is this GPU worth buying?

    Alright that sounds awesome! Thanks for your help @Lurick and @Lord Nicoll, you've helped me a lot.
  15. Is this GPU worth buying?

    Alright. I did find a GTX 1070 Founders Edition for £310, so I'm probably going to go for that. Out of curiosity, would it work well with an i7-4790K?
