  1. So a few months ago, I made a topic asking about M.2 drives. I was looking to get a 1 TB one to expand my storage. Well, I've decided to possibly abandon that idea as I've just now taken stock of what games I have and what games I plan to get and have found that, combined, they account for more than 1 TB. So now I'm mulling over the idea of either getting a single 2 TB drive or getting a pair of drives, one being 1 TB while the other is between 512 GB and 1 TB if the price was right. I'd be getting the two separate ones to save money but I'd rather have just one to keep things tidy both in terms of managing games and in my PC case. So I'm looking for opinions and/or recommendations on what I should do.
  2. @NoGanksEric @ZzLy @idwt Thanks guys for the swift answers.
  3. I've been using a MSI RX 580 Armor OC 8 GB card for about a year now but I only just started running MSI Afterburner at random when I play just to get an idea of how my setup is preforming and I noticed my GPU seems to run at around 70 degrees when I play some games. The games run fine and my FPS is alright but I read that 70 is about as hot as you want to run the card at max and when I play, it's staying up there pretty much all the time. Is this a problem I should be concerned with?
  4. Thanks for the help but I just managed to find my answer. Since the m.2 port on my motherboard supports PCIe x4/x2 SSD as well as SATA, it basically can handle all M.2 devices, which is what I was concerned about. I feel really stupid for making this post now lol Also thanks @LogicWeasel for the link to that SSD. Might just use that. Oh and for those wondering why I'm planning on using a NVMe drive to store games, I got four words for you. Bethesda Games' Loading Times
  5. I'm looking to expand my storage size (games are a lotter bigger than they use to be lol) and was just going to buy a ADATA SU800 1 TB SSD as a big brother to my current 256 GB SU800. Then I thought to check and my Gigabyte B250-DS3H (still regret choosing that but it was my first build) does have a M.2 slot. But from what I've been able to tell, M.2 is more diverse/confusing than SATA. What I'm looking for is advice for what to look for when looking at M.2 drives to ensure I'm getting the best I can for what I pay and that it will work with my motherboard. I checked with the manual and it tells me "1x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 SATA and PCIe x4/x2 SSD support)"
  6. @Cereal5 Hey man, it's me. Been a while but I recently developed a question and you've been the most helpful guy here. So my RX 580 has two HDMI ports and two DisplayPort ports. Could I plug two monitors via HDMI into my 580 and have them mirror each other? So I could have a monitor for myself and then another that I could place elsewhere so my friend and brother don't have to look over my shoulder or I have to sit weird so they can see my screen. I can do a similar thing with my Chromebook if I plug it into a monitor via HDMI where what's on my Chromebook's screen is mirrored on the monitor/TV and I was hoping I might be able to do the same thing with my PC on two different monitors.
  7. If someone can delete this, that'd be great. I don't know how to and I just used Cheat Engine and some other things.
  8. So I want to use this trainer but Malwarebytes flags it as a risk. I put it through virustotal and only one other program aside from Malwarebytes sees it as harmful. Malwarebytes itself says it's a "riskware.gamehack.generic" which apparently is just a name for a program that accesses a game without official authorization. Obviously a trainer would do this. Having just finally rebuilt my computer after a previous screwup, I'm very cautious and don't know if I should be worried about the two hits I got.
  9. @Neftex I hope to sometime soon be able to afford a VPN but right now, I literally am broke. As in zero cash and triple zeros in the bank account. I had planned to get NordVPN when I had my last job but they fired me before I could even finish my parts collecting. Just started a new job this week so if the first pay is good enough, I'll probably subscribe. I know better than to trust free VPNs. I didn't know it was possible for an ISP to be the problem but since you mention it, I'd say it'd be the ISP. Ours hasn't been the most reliable. A while back, we had them and the wifi would constantly go down and we'd have to call them out weekly. They tried to charge us 40 bucks each time when they never actually solved the problem. We changed to CenturyLink but due to our location, we got maybe 5MBps on good days and switched back. So they are the only affordable high speed option in our area so we're kinda stuck with them. As for physical things, the only device I use to access it that has a independent keyboard is my desktop which I built myself so I know it's clean. The others are my cell and Chromebook which obviously don't use separate keyboards. Honestly, for me individually, it's not a major problem. Plus I can only assume this has been happening for years and nothing has happened, though I know that's dangerous thinking. Regardless, thanks for the info. I'll definitely consider it nevertheless.
  10. So I've used the same gmail account since I first used the internet to make a Facebook account. For a long time, I never paid much attention to my email account but over the last few months, I've started to occasionally check my account activity on gmail and I keep seeing apparent logins or activity from computers or phones in completely different states. Just over the past 3 days, Google claims I've had mobile activity from phones in 4 different states. Tennessee, Connecticut, Virginia, and Kansas. I do know locations services usually say I'm located in a city that is quite a few miles away for whatever reason (I know it actually means me because I've checked) but different states? I've changed my password over half a dozen times now but less than a day later, it'll say someone new has logged in or activity has happened. I've ran scans with multiple antivirus and malware programs and nothing like a keylogger or something of the sort is on my computer. Anyone know what it could be?
  11. Not saving Youtube videos either. What I was doing was trying to find a free video converter that could convert AVI files that I made myself into MP4s. I had recorded videos of my own gameplay to upload to Youtube.
  12. When I said free online converter I meant those converters you don't need to download a .exe to use. Like Cloud Convert.
  13. I did. It failed I believe because it said the point was damaged to deleted. Whatever virus I got was able to prevent me from installing new programs like Malwarebytes so I assume it deleted the restore point. I was trying to get a video converter because as I was recording some YT videos, Bandicam suddenly started spitting out files three times their normal size. Normally a 9 minute file was 3 GB and suddenly they were 10. So I tried switching to AVI but then Vegas Pro wouldn't accept them for whatever reason so I went back to MP4 and problem disappeared. I assume it was because of so many effects going on on screen. So I was going to try and convert them to MP4s but no free online converter would handle the size of them so I was trying to find a program converter that would do it. I can't remember the name of the program unfortunately.
  14. @Shiv78 Hey man, I turned my PC back on because I've gotten so use to the sound of the fans I started to miss them and when I did, it went into automatic repair. I was able to access the built in windows things. It has an option for resetting my PC. It asked if I wanted to keep my personal things and I said no. Now I'm looking at two options. One says "Just remove my files" and other is "Fully clean the drive." Is either of those a viable option to formatting?
