  1. All 5 models are DDR4, the same config, and the same frequency, so it's probably not going to make any noticeable difference. At this point, you can just choose one based on how it fits with the aesthetic of your build. EDIT: Oops, misread the clocks. In that case, the Patriot Viper CL17 is going to be the fastest.
  2. Those are really good temps, especially for a laptop. Looks like you used just the right amount.

  4. Uhhh, I'm unsure about what you mean by "help". If you want help with planning and designing a new build, we can definitely help you with that. On the other hand, if you're looking for tech-based handouts, I'm going to have to point you to your local Goodwill, Craigslist or Gumtree.
  5. Honestly, I don't think I could recommend either. The first one doesn't specify HDR compatability (something you should always look for, because no name Amazon sellers will always try to cut corners), and the second one is super overpriced. It seems you're kinda in a tight spot. All the cables I've found that claim both HDMI 2.0a and HDR support are much shorter than you need. I'll keep looking, and update this message if I do find anything. EDIT: I've found a few options of HDMI 2.1 (able to carry 4k, 120hz, HDR) cables, but they have few reviews. If you really need this cable, go for it, but you might be able to find something better on your own. https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/black-link-depot-15-ft-hdmi-cables/p/N82E16886602027?Description=hdmi 2.1&cm_re=hdmi_2.1-_-86-602-027-_-Product In any case, good luck on your search!
  6. Although I agree that AmazonBasics cables are generally good quality, OP needs a very specific type of cable. If you can find an AmazonBasics cable which claims to be HDMI 2.0a compatible, go for it. If not, then you need to find something else.
  7. Yep, it looks like I was right. That cable is only HDMI 2.0, not HDMI 2.0a. Another clue is that there's no mention of HDR in the item description. You're going to need a new cable if you want to get HDR.
  8. Do you know exactly which version of HDMI 2.0 your cable is? According to Wikipedia, the original version of HDMI 2.0 supports 4k60Hz, but doesn't actually support HDR. The only HDMI 2.0 version that supports HDR is HDMI 2.0a. Here's an article if you feel like doing some further reading.
  9. You should be able to set a capped frame-rate in the game's settings, if I'm not mistaken.
  10. To be honest, I doubt it. The new Mac Pro starts at $6000, and can go up to $20,000 for a full config. If you've got $20,000 dollars to blow on your computer, I'm betting you also have another $999 in between the cushions of your couch.
  11. According to UserBenchmark, the 1660 Super will be about 51% faster than the 570 overall, with 90% better performance in Fortnite tests. If you're willing to spend the extra cash, the 1660 Super will definitely give you better performance.
  12. That TCL looks pretty good. I might even get the 43" model and save some money. Thanks for the help!
  13. Hey forum, I've finally decided that it's time to upgrade my mom's TV. She currently has a 31" Panasonic with 3" bezels from a while back, so basically anything would be an upgrade. Doesn't need to be 4K, or larger than 50", all it needs to do is play stuff from her Apple TV and hook up with the Nintendo switch dock. Budget is around $500 (CAD), but I would also like to get her a sound bar for movie watching, so the lower the better. Thanks!
  14. I don't think you can get a tax exemption for a donation like this. To get a tax receipt, you need to be donating to a registered charity organization, not to an individual.
  15. You probably won't see a noticeable difference in performance, but I would probably go with the ASUS just in case you encounter any problems. MSI is notorious for not having great customer care.
