  1. Budget (including currency): 1000€ Country: Germany Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Games (Warzone, Destiny 2, rdr2), Photoshop, Streaming What I am upgrading from: Operating System Windows 10 Home 64-bit CPU Intel Core i5 4670K @ 3.40GHz RAM 16,0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24) Motherboard ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. MAXIMUS VI IMPACT (SOCKET 1150) Graphics ROG PG278Q (2560x1440@144Hz) PA279 (2560x1440@144Hz) 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (EVGA) Storage 465GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500GB (SSD) I'm currently gaming on 1080p HD scaled up to 1440p, I'm looking to move to 1440p. This build is from 2013 and got updated with the 970 in 2014 or 15. I haven't build a system since then and have no idea what the closest bottlenecks are.
  2. Hey Jan, yes the Asus monitors have problems with the backlight bleed, I currently have Both the Asus PA279Q and the Asus ROG Swift PG278Q. Yes they are a bit older but nothing much has changed for the newer models when it comes to bleed.
  3. Hey everyone, I have a collection of consoles and wanna hook them all up to my TV. My TV has only 4 hdmi outs and only two of those are 4k. What are the best hdmi switches out there? I would love it, if the switch changes to active sources since another remote would drive me crazy. I always lose the one remote I need to change something when I need it most. I have the following devices to setup: 4k fireTV, Apple TV HD, PS4 pro 4k, Xbox one 4k, data server HD, Gamecube 480p hdmi, Wii, Wii U, switch and PS3. that makes 3x 4k devices and about 8 other hdmi devices. Can you recommend any 4k and HD hdmi splitters? Have a tech day! Lighto
  4. Hello beloved tech enthusiasts, it's that time of the year again, light a match and burn everything down. Jokes aside, I usually only reset my PC when I put new hardware in and never done it without throwing a new system on there. So can i just use the build in reset and delete everything function in win10 or should I go an other route? Will I need the win10 key for the reset option? Can you recommend a free key grabber I can install on a usb stick? I might have some licences on this PC I forgot about. Have a tech day! Lighto
  5. Searching for a "how to torture test a HDD befroe putting it in a server" Any help would be appreciated.
  6. Hello there Everyone, I'm new to the free nas game and after seeing Wendells videos about free nas I thought to build one myself. The Build aka my old PC: Sabertooth z77 16gb Ram 2500k CPU 120GB Evo 840 3x 4TB WD Red bequiet 850W P9 Pro I know the PSU is overkill but it's what I've got here. I'm thinking about adding a dual gig nic and would choose the intel pro 1000. First of all I'd love to hear your thought on my setup, second are a few questions I've got. Can I use the SSD I put free nas on as a cache for my raid or should I buy an other one for the operating system? I believe free nas only needs about 8GB for the operating system. should I buy a small SSD to put it on? Have a tek day! Greetings, Lighto

    4k or 1440p?

    1440p! I got 1 Rog swift and a pro art 1440p and I love it. 4k is to heavy on fps. and my 3k laptop is making life hell when hooked up to an other moitor.

  10. Hi Guys, Got a XPS 13 hooked up to an ext. monitor. XPS native 3000x1800px, monitor native 1680x1050px. As soon as I plug the monitor in the resolution on the XPS goes down to HD and I can't choose a higher resolution in the screen resolutions menu. Any suggestions? Have a tek day. Lighto
  11. Maybe after years the rubber around the cables will get a bit rugged and porous. Otherwise no need to worry.

    Is 4k worth it?

    not worth it in my opinion. It will set your gaming experience if you are not running at least one 980. If your working a lot with HD Videos it's nice to see them in full size while editing but with 1440p you kinda got that already. I don't like how things are magnified in win 7/8/10 there are still a lot of problems with that.
  13. Hi guys, I'm looking for a program which will show me my temps in the notification area. I use Hard Disk Sentinel for years now and would love to have something similar for CPU and GPU. What are you guys using? Is there something I should check out? Have a tek day! Lighto
