    turn off vsync and play the game on your laptop, what ever FPS you get, you will get on the other monitor.

    I would just look them up on Amazon, Newegg, or another seller and filter by the 1 and 2 star reviews. Ignoring the review that have no effort put into them, or are about the seller instead of the product should give you a good idea of the flaws of each.

    I think you meant to quote @kelvinhall05.
     
    Pesky mortgage and bills puts me around the 50 percent disposable mark.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from handymanshandle in HELP!! THIS IS URGENT!   
    Run a virus/malware scan (or both) and don't install it again. If they don't find anything, and you don't notice any additional odd behavior or background tasks then you're likely fine.
     
    Windows seems to rearrange icons on it's own from time to time, so that doesn't particularly concern me.

    If you can run a cable to the computer's location there is no reason not to do so. It will always be a more reliable connection.

    > Put some money away for a rainy day. The rain will come again, and there may or may not be stimulus then. Dropping $4K into something that's going to be nearly worthless in 5-10 years isn't a wise financial decision. If you must upgrade, you could temper it back to half the price, and still have a nice setup.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from spartaman64 in Should I start an IRA Roth   
    It's not tax-free, rather, you pay the taxes up front when the money is contributed. You are not taxed on growth or when you take money out. If you end up in a lower tax bracket when you retire compared to where you are now Roth may not be an advantage. Something to think about and determine if Roth vs. traditional is the better choice. I went Roth myself for and IRA.
     
    If your employer has any company-sponsored matching programs make sure to maximize those first since it's free money.
     
    Regardless, if you can afford to put the additional savings away for retirement then by all means go for it!

    RAS_3885 reacted to JoostinOnline in Your irrational fear?   
    Spiders aren't insects. They're arachnids. And so are scorpions, which absolutely terrify me. I even tensed up writing that word. I have arachnophobia, although spiders don't bother me at all.
     
    The really weird thing is I used to the scorpions were cool. I wore a necklace with the scorpio symbol when I was a kid. I have no idea when or why that changed, but now I can't be around anything that even reminds me of them. I freaked out when I tried the FF7 remake demo.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from dbpx2 in My monitor is hot to touch?   
    What the heck is a deep fried look?
     
    Anyways, electronics get hot. Generally the harder they work the hotter they get, so a higher refresh rate monitor will likely run hotter than an equivalent lower refresh rate model. If you're really worried get one of the IR temp guns and see how hot various parts of the monitor actually are.
     
    Mine run just over 30 C screen surface temp at the hottest.
     
    It's probably fine.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Praesi in GPU length.   
    No, it's the TOTAL PHYSICAL LENGTH of the card, not just the length of the PCB. There's only one way to measure total physical length.
     
    It's the total space it will take up in your case.
     
    If space available is less than dimension on the spec sheet it won't fit.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from NZgamer in What to Upgrade next?   
    Dual channel RAM is a good call, especially if you end up going to a more recent Ryzen processor where RAM is much more important to performance. 2400 is on the slower side, so an overall upgrade to faster RAM would be best.
     
    I'd only upgrade the graphics card (right now) if you're unhappy with the performance in the games you play.

    Then what the hell does it matter how hot your heat gun gets if you don't care about how to do this correctly? Just go for it and blast away. CPUS already broken anyway, why should we care what you do with it if you're gonna be like that?

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from tinpanalley in New monitor, old stand?   
    This is valid, but without knowing the specific models in question we can't say for sure. This is where giving it a try and seeing if it feels stable is the best way to go.
