  1. Right now i have a 1080p TV as my monitor and due to lack of space it is not feasible for me to have a separate TV and monitor where i have my PC (1 bedroom apartment and my bedroom isn't large enough to fit a computer desk in there with everything else Seeing as how 4K is becoming more prevalent 1080p might soon go the way of 720p and become extremely hard to get tech for Right now i know my rig can't handle 4k gaming 1050ti, i7 3770S is not gonna be able to play anything at 4K really The most graphically intense games i own is Crysis 2 and Skyrim SE (With Mods) What kind of gear do i need to be looking at to be able to build a rig that can happily do 4k on those games, looking at the bare minimum specs to COMFORTABLY game at 4k i know that the latest i7 and RTX cards could do it but that's a bit beyond my price range
  2. This might require someone who knows more about servers etc. But i've always struggled to get my head round how a game can be rendered/run on a server and then beamed to a 'dummy' device requiring next to no real specs on the remote device. Can someone basically dumb this down for me cos my brain is thinking surely the remote device still needs to draw the polygons etc which requires a discrete GPU if we are referring to modern games
  3. I just got my Honor View 20 yesterday, one thing i noticed is that by default its setup to not wake the screen when i receive a text. But when i go to change it it looks like it changes it for all notifications rather than just text messages. Is there a way to only wake the screen upon receiving a text and if i get any other kind of notification (whatsapp message etc.) it the lock screens stays off?
  4. Legally?? No There are ways you can get them of course to would be against ToC to mention them here You could have got it for free if you had 7 or 8/8.1 when they were doing the free upgrade. If not i believe your only way is to now pay the $100 or whatever it is
  5. Having played guitar on and off for close to 10 years (taken more seriously past 4 years) i'll offer my input on it. 30 minute sessions are not long enough in my opinion. Unless you are extremely young and can't concentrate for an hour; 30 minutes isn't enough to get into the stuff you really need to go into. Barre chords for example (the unofficial test of every beginner guitarist imo) will be tricky and 30 minutes isn't enough time to work out kinks Your best best would be to find a private teacher (not a course) that will teach you. Make sure you find a teacher that will help you achieve your goals. For example you don't want a person to teach you Jazz if you wanna play rock/metal. Have a long term goal in mind; if you want to sound like Meshuaggh. That's great but learning Jazz won't help you to much there (for example) Courses aren't really a good option unless you're going for degree's etc. Best way is individual lessons. try for a month or so if you like the teacher maybe then ask if you can book a block of lessons in one go for easy payment You didn't mention your age or whether you're playing electric/acoustic and what genre's you like though so
  6. I'm a slight audiophille but more like a realistic one i've listened to FLACS and i can't tell the difference between a high quality MP3 and a Flac on my home cinema system, but i don't have the income to buy like £2000 speakers
  7. Cassette Tapes here in the UK at least to my knowledge are really dead. I don't know of ANYWHERE you can buy cassettes from nowadays other than Charity shops
  8. It's a discussion i always like to get into to see the different arguments people have I find myself personally getting CDs. I love to have the physical media; i of course rip the tracks as soon as i get them, but i hold the mentality of should something go wrong with my computer phone etc. I've still got the music i love to listen to as i have the CDs so i can put them in my Car or back onto my computer (I'm also one of the only people i know that is annoyed that machines have gone the "No CD drive route") Also i don't know why but there is something satisfying and having actual CD albums when everyone else seems to be going for the "Download from Amazon" route I don't go vinyl as i personally don't like the resurgence of Vinyl. It's only happening thanks to 'hipsters' i personally think and you can see that with the music being released on Vinyl
  9. A little bit of background in this A few years ago my brother passed away and i'm wanting to honour his memory by making a video combining me improvising a solo (im a guitar player) and then fading into what his favourite track was. Now the track i know is owned by Sony music and to make sure that this video wouldn't get copyright claimed or a content ID strike i am willing to pay to be able to use the song in a video. Is there a way this can be done? (like how you can purchase a PRS license to play music at venues for events)
  10. Then i'd HIGHLY advise asking to look round it first before you start talking price. Now if you know cars thats great; but if not bring someone along who does know it, maybe you have a friend who's a mechanic? And for that £1000 is the absolute MAX i'd go
  11. The guy wants a grand for that?? Even though i don't know cars that's being optimistic, i'd say not even £500 due to the rust and the damage on the car; also what's it's mileage?
  12. It's more things with the mobo that are starting to go wrong like USB ports suddenly deciding they don't want to recognise what's plugged into them (which is solved by simply restarting) and to buy a replacement Mobo for a 3rd gen intel processor will be quite hard to find at least in the UK where the second hand market isn't very strong generally
  13. I already upgraded my GPU and as i'm not gaming at 4K i feel no need to go any higher than my 1050 Ti
  14. GPU = 1050 Ti Monitor = Not actually a monitor but a TV. Due to lack of space in my flat i don't have room for a separate desk for my PC so i use my TV as a monitor
  15. Yeah i'm not looking at upgrading right now. I can handle the little gemlins that come my way
  16. That is quite a price difference, obviously account for conversion rates to (I'm UK)
  17. That's a good point. Thinking about it this is gonna be fairly expensive as the parts i need to replace are the some of the most expensive ones really Mobo, RAM, PSU, CPU and Cooler
  18. I don't mind waiting, i do IT as a job so any of the gremlins that arise i can solve. I was informed that Ryzen is kinda not needed if you're not going to be taking advantage of the benefits of Ryzen. Plus i don't plan on overclocking as none of the games i run right now struggle in terms of FPS
  19. Currently i have a 3rd gen i7; was top of the line when i got it. However my machine is starting to have little gremlins which is making me consider (finally) upgrading my machine to something more modern, I'd reuse a lot of stuff from my previous build (mainly SSDs, HDDs and GPU) therefore will be building my own machine That being said part of me wants to get an i7 beacuse that's what i had before but when i look at the price. It's really high which got me thinking, is a i7 actually NEEDED for gaming anymore. If i'm not gaming i'm onyl watching netflix etc. i don't do VFX work anymore so i know i don't need Ryzen Games i will be playing - SMITE - Warframe - Skyrim SE - Dishoured - Old RTS games which obviously could run on a phone at this point I'm fairly sure none of these are CPU intensive like GTA is known to be
  20. This is the biggest shock i've ever had while listening to a song. A complete 180 from their normal work but holy damn does it work. Only came across it a few days ago (Not a huge Disturbed fan)
  21. If today goes as planned, Dishonoured, Age of Mythology and Age of Empires II Thank god for Steam sales
  22. Google Drive backup can do both of these, Also if you have a SD card installed you can even backup the phone t the SD cards (includes text messages)
  23. PICNIC = Problem In Chair Not In Computer
  24. Megadeth track with a channel logo of MoP by Metallica. Let the war begin
  25. If it's a credit card it will simply decline the payment, if you overspend on your regular account (IE with a debit card) if you have an overdraft you will go into that
