    My name is Barry Allen and I'm the fastest Barry Allen alive. When I was a Barry Allen, I saw my Barry Allen killed by something impossible. My Barry Allen went to prison for her murder. Then an accident made me the Barry Allen. To the outside world, I'm just an ordinary Barry Allen, but secretly I use my Barry Allen to fight crime and find others like Barry Allen, and one day I'll find who killed my Barry Allen and get justice for my Barry Allen.

    FloatPlane For Everyone

    why other than being able to see videos before they release, some exclusives, and higher quality streams, there's not really any other features we floatplane subs get. Also, floatplane is missing some functions Youtube has, like subtitles and searching (although there's not much to search through, only 3 creators right now).

    New build with a few questions

    If you don't plan on overclocking, I'd keep the cooler you have rn. If you plan on OCing, I'd get a better one but I don't know enough about different coolers to recommend one. Idk what to say about the PSU, it seems good to me but I don't have the knowledge. It might work, nothing would get hurt if you tried to boot to the SSD. Otherwise you'll have to reinstall windows. It's not hard to make a new installer, just grab a thumb drive (back up the contents) and use Rufus to burn a Windows 10 ISO onto the drive, then boot to the USB drive and install windows. I'd get either the 1660ti or 2060, depending on how much you want to spend and what monitor(s) you have

    Whats the difference?

    RTX 2080 has raytracing and DLSS support, and is also a newer card than the 1080, so performs a bit better. I'd get the 2080 for gaming and streaming because it's just a better performer, and it also has some better encoding stuff from what I've read.

    First custom build: Should I do it myself?

    You can do it, my cat believes in you. There's plenty of guides here and all over the internet in case you get stuck, but really a PC just goes together like a very expensive lego set, and lots of parts are designed so you can't accidentally put them in the wrong way.

    Is this PSU enough ?!

    Yes, 500 watts will be plenty. although that PSU looks like it's seen some better days. edit: according to someone else it's 430 watts.

    Dual 144hz Monitor on RX 580

    If you're just having non-gaming stuff on the side, then I don't see it having much of a performance impact.

    USB header on a B450 Motherboard

    Yeah. If you've got a PCIE 1x slot you should use that, but if not then you can still put that in a x16 slot. (it just looks weirder and takes up a full sized slot)

    USB header on a B450 Motherboard

    Are you sure you only have 2 USB2 headers? I looked at the product page and it says it has "2 x USB 2.0 connector(s) support(s) additional 4 USB 2.0 port(s)", and looking at the product photo I swear I see 2 front panel USB connectors

    2700x or wait for zen2

    Considering you've got an okay CPU right now, I'd wait until Zen 2 unless you really need better performance right now.

    Use second GPU for Nvidia game streaming

    Update (if anything just for the people in the future) - I got home and put the 950 in the empty PCI-E slot, installed drivers and Geforce experience and.... nothing at first, in Geforce experience there wasn't a tab for "Shield". I plugged my monitor into the 950 though, and the tab showed up. I enables the "Gamestream" switch and then opened Moonlight on both the chromebook and my PC, both on the same network. My PC showed up on the Chromebook, so I clicked on it and it all worked! I then switched to a different network on my chromebook and connected again, and it worked again. I didn't get the best performance and had a bit of input lag, but that's probably because of the really low end specs of the Chromebook (Celeron N2840 ew).

    Questionnaire about computer design PLEASE FILL

    bit of advice - I'd use google forms because not everyone is going to have the time or feel like putting in the effort to fill out an excel sheet.
  13. Hi, I have a garbage HP Chromebook 14, which has no play store support, and no ability to turn on developer mode. I want to be able to stream simpler games from my desktop at home (i7 3770, rx580 8gb) but I don't have many options. I've used teamviewer a while, and it works ok for some things but gaming is a laggy nightmare. The only other option I can see is the Moonlight chrome app, which uses Nvidia GameStream. I've got a RX580 so obviously it won't work with that, but what if I put my old GTX950 that's sitting in my closet in my extra PCIE slot, will I be able to use GameStream then? I bet it won't have the same performance in games as the 580, but I'll be just streaming more simple games like Terraria and stuff so that won't matter to me. Anyone know if this'll work? If nobody knows I'll try it later and update here in the name of science.
