  1. Thanks , seems seagate is less reliable based on what ive read so far, where do you see the wd for $130?
  2. Looking for an external harddrive to back up all my data, but the reviews for these drives all look bad and leave me confused as to what to go for. I have a 4 tb hdd and a 128ssd along with some more storage I want to back up. So I was looking at these but some say their smr with bad write speeds and no reliability. I'm looking for reliability to keep data safe for a long time and using it just for backing up my drives and phone preferably 6 or more Tbs Seagate Expansion Desktop 6TB External Hard Drive HDD - USB 3.0 for PC Laptop $100(STEB6000403) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CX8QBG4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_qtXqEb3X5GE0B WD 6TB Elements Desktop Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBWLG0060HBK-NESN $120 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076MPMZDV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_AyXqEb32FQDH4 Seagate Backup Plus Hub 6TB External Hard Drive Desktop HDD - USB 3.0, 2 USB Ports, for Computer Desktop Workstation PC Laptop Mac, 2 Months Adobe CC Photography (STEL6000100) $120 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01K4241D0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_MzXqEbWFPGMFD Seagate Desktop 8TB External Hard Drive HDD - USB 3.0 for PC Laptop and Mac (STGY8000400)$140 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CQJBSQL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_HAXqEb4ERQRVG
  3. would you recommend the i3 or the ryzen 5 considering the price difference and the fact that it will be used mostly just for school and web browsing
  4. hello im looking for recommendations for a laptop between 5 and 6 hundred dollars, 7 max im looking to use it for school and surfing the web mainly. preferably one with an ssd , 15 inches and a dvd drive if possible Thanks!
  5. Hello i just installed more ram into my pc so i currently have two T force 3000MHz 16gb https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XHJC5Q1/ref=twister_B07CRQ62RX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 and two T force 3000MHz 8 gb https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B68XMV4/ref=twister_B07CRQ62RX?_encoding=UTF8&th=1 Everything looks good but idk if its registering at the proper MHz i attached a screenshot of CPU-Z , the chips are 3000MHz but i see 1499.1MHz is this correct or does something need to be changed in the settings, Thanks!
  6. Helllo i just bought the lLG 27UK600 , its 4k 8 bit(frc 10bit) and have it now sitting next to my acer g257hu . the problem is the acer looks brighter , i had this same problem with the asus mg279q and even sent the asus mg279q back because it looked horrible next to the acer which is half the cost. So now im wondering if im just used to a screen that is too bright and these other monitors im using are bright enough. im planning on getting a color calibrator and calibrating both screens but im just curious what you guys think. also the hdr effect on the lg looks the brightest but blows out the highlights on non hdr videos and photos so im wondering if theres any way to use that setting and adjust it with software... idk THANKS!
  7. Hello just looking for some opinions before I pull the trigger and buy the LG 27UL650-W 27 for $400 from Amazon. I need a color accurate monitor for content creation which is what I spend most of my time doing. I play games every now and then and tried out the asus mg279q 1440p 144hz monitor but it wasn't bright enough and costs $525 so I sent it back. Now I'm thi oh g about getting this monitor recommended from rtings https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/best/by-usage/photo-editing-graphic-design . It has freesync to which is cool! I was thinking about getting the asus pb278q and the benq GW2765HT but I the lg is a lot more exciting and a better choice? https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/7a3eac106 Thanks for reading! What are your thoughts?
  8. Correct , thanks for the advice! I was mainly worried about the sticks not bebeibebeinbebeibebeing compatible and not being able to boot or something, but I'd just need to match the speeds in the bios. Would i set them to the same speed or take the cas# into account and match them that way. Also would it matter where the 3rd ram is installed or should i just check my mb manual.
  9. Do you mean get a single 16bg and add it to the two 8gbs I already have In there? Giving me 32gbs and throttling the faster 8gbs to match the 16gb?
  10. Thanks for the input! Is it alright if the CAS is different? And is there any noticeable difference between the two speeds or is it really no big deal?
  11. Hello, I currently have two 8gb sticks and have been getting bottlenecked when rendering with 3d applications and multitasking so I wanted to add more ram and was thinking I add a 16gb stick to give me 8gb+8gb+16gb=32gb... and then in the future add a second 16gb stick giving me a total of 8gb+8gb+16gb+16gb=48gb But for now I just want to add 16gb. I currently have these ddr4-3000 cas 16 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/PBPKHx/team-t-force-delta-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3000-memory-tf3d416g3000hc16cdc01 I wanted to add this ddr4-2400 cas 15 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/NhqhP6/team-t-force-delta-rgb-16gb-1-x-16gb-ddr4-2400-memory-tf3d416g2400hc15b01 I have an aorus x470 gaming wifi 5 Would this work or is it all around a bad idea? I could also just buy the same 2 8gbs again to get me to 32gbs but then upgrading in the future wowould be harder. What are yourthoughts? Thanks!
  12. okay thank you for the help! Just had a chat with amazon and im getting a refund. would you recomend a replacement or should i spend a little more for the ASUS ROG Swift PG279QZ
  13. i haven't used a color calibrating tool like a spyder on it but iv'e tried many configurations suggested by sites that have used a color calibrator. the weird thing is they suggest putting the monitor at %30 brightness but even at 100% brightness it isn't bright enough but it should match my acer at 350 cd/m² max brightness.
  14. Ended up getting the mg279q but unfortunately im going to have to send it back. the screen just doesn't look bright or vivid enough especially sitting next to my acer which is half the price. The 144hz is amazing but i cant stand the inaccurate colors and lack of brightness
