    Travel Build

    I am looking at spending some time abroad in 2020 and whilst I'll be working and exploring plenty, I don't want to kick my gaming habits just yet. Especially with Halo coming to PC next year. My current build is a fairly capable desktop which I am happy with and was not looking at upgrading any time soon (current specs in spoiler). My budget is $2000 AUD but I am not firm (ie $100 for more performance then sure). I won't be taking a monitor with my whilst traveling however given most modern upgrades are going to have better CPUs than my desktop I was wondering if it is worth increasing my budget and replacing the desktop. My concern with this is powering 3 additional displays for when I am home, battery life of a higher performance laptop (and deterioration) and portability. So my options as I see it are: My current desktop and a moderate gaming laptop Highly spec'ed laptop and no desktop (looking at maybe $3000 budget + whatever I can get for my desktop) Moderate laptop with eGPU (Using the 1080ti from my desktop) and my current desktop My current choice is a laptop through Metabox for roughly $2000 with the following specs and keeping my desktop Does anyone have thoughts on these options and suggestions on what build laptop I should go for them? Also thoughts on buying in Australia vs waiting till I get to the US? Thanks

    Keyboard Broken After Sleep

    I have a very old keyboard which I use for my Windows 10 PC (https://www.laserco.com.au/KB-USBBKVPU-keyboard-usb-voip-media-2-port-usb-hub) It is a VOIP keyboard so it has in-built speakers and a microphone. Every time I wake my PC from sleep the keyboard functionality is not working but the speakers and microphone are. I can also plug another keyboard into the USB hub on the keyboard and use it fine. To fix the issue I must click with the mouse to bring up my password field then unplug the keyboard and put it in a different port on the motherboard. I have disabled USB suspend which I thought might be the issue but now I am a bit lost. Any thoughts?

    Fingerprint Features

    My current phone is the Oppo A57. A feature I really like is that I can use different fingers on the scanner to open different apps automatically whilst locked. For example my left thumb could be Chrome and my right thumb could be messages etc I'm looking at an upgrade soon and was wondering what other phones have this feature? I assume other Oppos' will (wouldn't mind confirmation though) but are there any other phones/brands that do the same? Thanks

    Mic Mute Noise

    They are referring to the sound discord makes. I do not hear the sound, just the people in my channel but thanks for the help

    That did not work unfortunately

    Mic Mute Noise

    I am using a Razer Man'O'War on Windows 10. When I use the mute mic switch on the headset Discord sends a ding through my mic to the people on the other end. It is a windows sound. Does anyone else have this happen and/or know how to stop this?

    Plex Options

    Is my current system better than one of those though just minus the raid?

    Plex Options

    At most blu-ray on one stream or music on multiple

    Plex Options

    Was looking at 2 bays and I probably will need transcoding

    Plex Options

    Currently I am running my Plex server on a Hackintosh with a 1050ti and 4tb storage drive. I am considering switching to a NAS for my plex server as I do not use the Mac OS often enough and would be nice to have a smaller machine for the server (Hackintosh is a Dell Precision Tower). Considering I already have this machine, is the cost (and what is the cost) for a NAS of similar power worth the smaller size and ability to RAID?

    Moving Countries

    I am looking at taking my gaming PC with me to the US from Australia and was wondering what the general impact on a system would be for the change in voltages between the two countries? My second question is what is the likely outcome for my system? I have a Seasonic SSR-750FX which I doubt I am using anywhere near capacity (but would curious on finding out) so I would assume in my case I would be fine? (full specs of my system are on profile if it is more than just PSU that needs to be taken into account)

    Frame Drop

    I have a 1080ti in my machine with a i7 3980x and 64gb RAM. I am trying to play GTA IV on triple screen (1080p 60hz) I have the game settings on highest everything and Vsync off, I get around 190fps but it drops down to 30 when I move or look around. My CPU is sitting at 40% (I have 180 tabs open in chrome) Is there any reason why I am getting this drop without using more of my gpu? Am I just underestimating the demand of a triple monitor setup? That is a screenshot from me leaving my house after just starting the game

    Racing Wheel and Extras

    Whelp when the Aussie price of the G29 is $500, apparently they like to mark it up here. Thanks for the responses though, will look into them. Might need to go second hand by the sounds of it though
  14. In the video about using an AMD GPU to enable freesync on a Nvidia GPU (Nvidia couldn't stop this...), Linus only mentions the use of one monitor. Is it possible to use multiple monitors for this trick? Whether they are all off the AMD card or one is and the others are off the Nvidia (if that even works) Thanks

    Racing Wheel and Extras

    I am looking at purchasing a racing wheel and pedals for my PC but am not sure on which way to go. I am a lazy driver (as in auto only) even when gaming so a shifter and clutch are not necessary but might be nice to try out (or if my brother has a go who prefers manual). For some background in preference, I drive a Ford Falcon which has what I would describe as a heavy steering wheel (someone can correct me if there is a term for this) which by that I mean the wheel takes more force to turn and it feels like the car is behind the wheel. Unlike my father's Kia Sorrento which has very light steering and wobbles a lot in your hands. This isn't exactly sensitivity as you can still turn the wheel the same amount for the same turning circle but it's the force required. So I am looking for a wheel with heavier steering or if possible, adjustable force required. Does anyone have any suggestions for this sort of thing? My budget is $200 but that's not strict so some higher end options (if that is what I need for my requirements then I'll pay more) Thanks
