  1. If you must go m.2 get a 250ish at most for boot because nobody needs that speed storage! Its great for opening large files quickly but you can just batch copy to it from a larger, cheaper drive, before you start then enjoy the speed as you work. You move the files back to long term storage when done. The standard setup now is: 1x 120GB to 250GB M.2 SSD (can be SATA if needed) as boot drive 1x 500GB-1TB SATA SSD for Steam games, programs to boot quickly. 1x 2TB-4TB SATA HDD for long term storage (it doesn’t make any noise if you rarely access it)
  2. I would recommend just building a USB hub into it, wireless charging would be cool.
  3. Buy a smaller one Second hand on eBay or similar , far far far better option.
  4. I want to go down the route where I dig them all out the ground with a spade I made.
  5. Good shout, I wonder if it can take a 3.5 HDD? Off to research as found one on ebay currently at £100
  6. My opinion is “trust @Fasauceome”
  7. No, worry about experience and budget. Bottlenecks are either the experience you don't want due to an under-powered piece of hardware or the experience you want at a higher price than you needed to pay. If you get the FPS you want, at the resolution you want, at the settings you want, at the price you can afford then you are OK.
  8. I don’t have space for that. Needs to have same footprint.
  9. Not much of an upgrade? What experience change do you expect? Personally I would keep the setup you have and save up for a proper upgrade, rather than a few FPS that whole new rig will give. When you can afford a 1440p monitor and GPU plus a whole new MoBo, CPU, storage and PSU then upgrade. For now, if you want a few extra FPS, grab a second hand GPU from the last generation or two. Your CPU will handle it just find, dont worry about “bottlenecks” if you get a significant FPS bump at 1080p
  10. Not really, nothing that novel and useful. A lot of stuff out there for the early adopters but not a lot coming through for those who like things to have matured. Mostly the same stuff as last year. AMD probably has done the most with its new CPUs and GPUs. I don’t think 2020 will be any different tbh.
