    What do you store where?

    I'm going to get a 500gb M.2 drive because I literally only have 3gb on my 1tb HDD, but what do i do with the M.2? should I have Win10 and music, documents and all that on the M.2 and leave steam on my HDD or vice versa?

    How good is ryzen 7?

  3. on a scale of 1 to 10, how good is Ryzen 7 1700 for: older games like Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2 and Garry's Mod? a super-intensive game/simulator? running VR? Running multiple intensive programs at once? and how much power would it take at 80-100%?
  4. I don't really wanna get professional stress testing software (at least, not right now) so what is the best free software for basic CPU/GPU tests?
  5. since id rather not have to burn $105 for a new CPU if I bork it, whats the best increment to boost by so that if it becomes unstable I can just step it down and not worry about breaking it? also, is there a way to boost/drop fan speed on the case and CPU fans without having to screw around with advanced settings?

    what kind of laptop do you need for BYOC?

    handle? as in carrying handle?
  7. planning to get a laptop for the bring your own computer thing, what kind of power do you need? I assume anything that can run team fortress at high-ish settings is fine?
  8. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH BOY. so, I have been looking for an infrared night vision camcorder (1, ghost hunting. 2, Outlast fan.) for AGES now and I cannot find anything that doesn't have a massive amount of negative reviews. I need a camcorder that isn't a professional-grade super camera, not too incredibly bulky, and that doesn't have an external IR bulb (and this is a big gamble but MAYBE maybe maybe under $250 USD?) Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! (because I have pulled out every hair on my head trying to find one. ouch.)

    Best speakers under $100?

  10. last time i attempted to remove a ISO from a flash drive it made the drive read 2GB and i couldn't correct it, not with disk manager nor command prompt. the problem i have now is i burnt a Ubuntu ISO but i want to change it to Mint, this time WITHOUT completely borking the drive. so what do i do?

    USB Bluetooth for VR controllers.

    I already bought a wifi card with no built-in Bluetooth and since I can't get a dedicated Bluetooth card (my GPU covers my other PCIe slot) ill need to get a Bluetooth USB chip. yay, another USB slot I could've used... so can I pick up any cheap chip or is there some sort of high-quality chip that I need?

    Case MAY be too small for GPU

    whew @corrado33
  13. so I'm getting a new case (https://www.amazon.com/ROSEWILL-including-outstanding-ventilation-BRADLEY/dp/B01MTCU5MM/ref=sr_1_28?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1542859700&sr=1-28&keywords=computer+case) and got this GPU (https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-Windforce-GDDR5-Graphics/dp/B01KQUDE2Y/ref=sr_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1542859652&sr=1-6&keywords=gtx+1060) but I just realized that the drive cage is on the bottom so it may or may not fit in it. so is the cage removable or will the card fit without removing anything?
  14. I was looking at Ryzen 3 series CPUs when I realized, "Hey, can these things even do VR?" so the question arose, to three or not to three? I only have ~$500 to spend on my pc upgrade and when I factored in the GPU, mobo, and RAM it worked out to about 100 smackaroos, so I'm stuck with the 1200, so if I get a VR headset sometime (i dunno when), will i be able to use it out of the box or will I need to upgrade my CPU too? (and I guess it'll help to know the GPU I'm getting is a GTX 1060 so it should play nice with most games)
