  1. Sorry, thought the discount was built into the price lol.
  2. Also at Best Buy https://www.bestbuy.com/site/aoc-g2590fx-24-5-led-fhd-freesync-monitor-black/6257435.p?skuId=6257435
  3. Totally true and I probably ignored his use case more than I should have. Nonetheless... I still believe that if he can deal with the it until he can upgrade, it's worth it as he will need 16gb sticks to get to 64bg (assuming he only has 4 ram slots).
  4. Just because it might be throttling your computer doesn't mean it's not good until you want to upgrade. Are you unhappy with the performance? Then maybe sell and get 2x 8gb if not, just stick it out until you can get another 16gb stick. Or list it on ebay for close to what you paid and if it sells, then get the 2x 8gb. People make a big deal about dual channel, but in reality, it doesn't make a HUGE difference for the average user imo. Or return it if it's within the return period... Not a huge price difference between a single stick and 2x 8gb. If you're going for 64gb eventually, you're going to have to use 16gb sticks anyways right?
  5. Would't surprise me considering how he's handling the whole situation like a child. Very unprofessional and unethical.
  6. I agree with everything you said except this. He was talking about the original PC video didn't meet their standards, not Kyle's video.
  7. I'm new here and obviously my opinion only means so much... But I've heard Linus "advertise" this community many times on the Wan show as a place for people to come for advice and support when they have tech related questions. He obviously created this community to help people whether they lurk, ask one question and leave, come with intentions of asking one question and leaving but end up coming back because it's a great community or if people come with intentions of being a long term member of the community. I don't see how any of these kinds of people are bad for the community. Even the people that come and ask 1 question and never come back might tell a friend who then comes to the community and stays as a long term asset. For LMG, this forum is a great advertising platform for their channels and now also floatplane. And I can only imagine how many Wan show topics and video ideas they get from posts on this forum... On top of that, there are obviously many great members of this community who consider answering the questions on this forum a hobby and do it just for fun. The good news is that if you don't like answering questions of new people, you don't have to... Because someone else would love to.
  8. Should work fine after BIOS update. Nothing wrong with an 8700 paired with 2080 ti... an 8700 chip is still very good! I wouldn't do the CPU upgrade unless I had extra money to waste lol. EDIT: Make sure you do the BIOS update before changing the CPU!
  9. We live in a world of ADD. No gaming companies can hold people's attention for longer than a few months... This is not really a new thing. That's why COD and Halo always had to release new games every few years even though the gameplay was almost the same or stuff they could have changed with simple downloadable content.
  10. I'm a fan of my 460x. Don't have to worry about people seeing my "great" wire management job lol.
  11. Not sure how far you will get if you plan to OC with that cooler. And I still recommend an SSD at least for the OS. Other than that, it's a beast of a PC!
  12. Also, you can get a Windows 10 Pro edition license from ebay for literally under $10!
  13. You almost built a PC identical to mine . Except I have a GTX 1080, 32GB ram and a different case. That MB has an M.2 slot so consider an M.2 NVMe card to install the operating system on. Or a standard SSD drive is even faster than booting from an HDD. Not a major necessity, but once you discover SSD or NVMe you will never go back!
  14. It depends on a lot. You have to decide whether you want to use an Intel processor or AMD processor first and then go from there. My tip to you for your first build is to find a prebuilt PC that you like in your price range, or maybe a little more since you will knock off some expenses by building it yourself. And then look at the components of the prebuilt you picked and put them into pcpicker to figure out everything that you need. Once you do that, post the pc picker list in a new thread, down in https://linustechtips.com/main/forum/18-new-builds-and-planning/ and people will respond with any suggestions for changes. It's also good to understand each component and what it does. There are a ton of videos on YouTube that you can use to learn. Just don't watch the verge PC build video!
