  1. For the batteries as older ones couldn’t provide enough power in case there was a spike that needed it. Now they removed those blocks, and on my older iPhone 6 I started getting crashes caused by the battery that couldn’t keep up with some processes. So yeah, it wasn’t a huge hoax as the media made it look like.
  2. If it’s a work phone I would go with Apple.
  3. Depends what you want out of the phone. If you mainly care about pictures and camera go with the iPhone 11. If you want a more flexible OS go with the Samsung. Though, if I were to choose an Android phone I wouldn’t go with Samsung. I would go with OnePlus.
  4. Well, it depends at the resolution. 1080p? Most likely yes. 1440p or above? You are good. My 1600 is slightly bottlenecking my 2070 but it is still capable of giving me solid frames. I will upgrade to 4600/4700 though. I settled on not upgrading to 3000 series as the CPU is still good enough imo. The most logical upgrade is the latest AM4 (and DDR4) Ryzen CPU. Which *should* be 4000 series.
  5. Are you sure you didn't damage the PCIe slot when removing the old card?
  6. This is false. On titles like Apex Legends a 2060 Super is fine for 144 fps, OP's problem is CPU and RAM (other than the 960). You are also putting the 1060 and 2060 on the same boat, which they definitely are not.
  7. The 2060 Super should be enough for 1080p144 for Apex, unsure if your CPU and RAM amount are enough though. Yours is DDR3 btw.
  8. Considering equal prices, I like Amazon because they are not assholes when it comes to RMA.
  9. I would buy faster RAM, at least 3200 (especially considering you are going to run Zen 2). It's not night and day difference, but if the price difference is less than 20 AUD, I would get 2x8GB 3200. I would probably get something like this, which way cheaper than 2000 AUD. You could get a 2080 or get a better motherboard to reach 2000 AUD if you want to use your whole budget.

  10. You wouldn't notice a difference in performance. The 1060 3GB is actually worse than one 480 (let alone 2). The i5 7400 is slightly better than a 8350, but you aren't going to notice a big difference. I would just upgrade CPU/mobo/RAM if I were you, something like this: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $194.79 @ OutletPC Motherboard ASRock B450 Pro4 ATX AM4 Motherboard $79.88 @ OutletPC Memory G.Skill Flare X 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $64.99 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $359.66 Mail-in rebates -$20.00 Total $339.66 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-10-23 20:32 EDT-0400 Down the road you can think about a new GPU.
  11. I was expecting much higher temperatures with the stock cooler. Nothing wrong there.
  12. They are by offering you their service for free. You can decide not to use it
