  1. Hey Everyone, So I had the idea of testing out windows 10 mobile and with them losing security support by the end of the year. I was wondering if i could download a version of Android and upload it to the phone. Is this possible and where can I find drivers for something like this?

    Windows 10 Mobile will no longer receive security updates past October 2019 and won't be supported at all past this date.

    I know, but in general, would it be ok for general use like phone calls, texting, photos and videos, and light youtube.

  3. Hey Everyone, 


    So I am a fan of the windows phone operating system and I had an idea of getting one to test it to see if it is usable. And yes, I do know that there is not many updates and not a lot of apps, but I don't need that stuff. I don't use Snapchat, twitter, facebook, or anything. I mostly use Instagram and youtube (I plan to use MyTube!) I just wanted to get everyone's opinion.

    Like @LukeLinusFanFic (what a name) said, you don't want to stick strictly with battery size. You'll want to look at how well the OS is optimized for the hardware it's on. Apple, for example, runs iOS very smooth on what normally seems like sub-par hardware. But that's because they spend lots of money and time tweaking and fiddling with it to work as smooth as it does.

    So, if I was to pick up an iPhone 6s Plus, I could get a full day of use without needing to charge?

    If you want a narrow case (like the one you mentioned), I would recommend the Node 202 (I guess why).

    But if you have $600 as a total budget, maybe cheaper cases like the Sugo SG13B can be a better option. I have a Sugo lying around, but I won't build in it until next week.

    I could give a comparison between the Node 202 and the Sugo after that.

    that would be nice, thanks.

  6. Hey Everyone, so I want to build a small form factor pc and I'm having trouble finding a decent one. So far I found the SilverStone ML08-H to be the best one so far. I'm also considering build my own case if it is possible. do you guys have any recommendations? I'm looking for something slim, vertical and something with an option for an optical drive.

  7. TBH, it depends on what you're doing. If you are doing stuff like content creation, then Radeon VII is your best bet with the 16 GBs of HBM2 Memory, but if all you do is gaming, then RTX 2080 is the better choice.

    Even i edit in Adobe Premier, and it actually works well with Nvidia Cards. I have a 1050TI OC edition from Zotac and it helps to accelerate effects that require GPU power. AMD cards also work well. But, I had a RX 470 which i borrowed from my cousin. The 1050TI actually exported a video faster than the RX 470. Im not sure about the 500 series though. But i  would still suggest a nvidia card from the pascal generation as it is more efficient. But, please. Don't buy a r9 380x or a r9 290. They are very power hungry and very hot running cards. Try for a 1060 or a 1050TI in Nvidia or a RX 570 or 560. You minimum need 4gb vram to get the best possible performance in Da vinci. Even if you get a used 1060, you can bargain a little with the seller and get the price down more. The same goes for 1050TI or the radeon cards. At a later stage, if you get the money, upgrade to a RTX series or the 1070ti or 1080. 

    Some 1060 mini cards for use on newegg:-

    The 3gb 1060 might work but im not sure about it. You might want to cross check it. 

    the problem with what you just said is that those cards are over $100 and with Da Vinci Resolve, Radeon GPUs perform better.

  9. Hey Everyone, so I want to build a mini ITX system under 600 USD  (excluding American tax) for video editing in Da Vinci Resolve 16 and da Vinci Resolve is a GPU dependent. So I was wondering if I should buy used graphics cards or just buy a new Rx 560 and upgrade later. 


    This is my build currently: 

    and these are the used GPUs I've been looking into:






  10. Hey Everyone, 


    So I've been looking into laptops for video editing and I've been having trouble finding ones with color accurate displays under $1000 for Da Vinci Resolve 16. I found 2 options, the Xiaomi Mi Gaming Notebook and the ASUS TUF FX705DY (Ryzen). Which one should I pick up, or is there any other options. I live in the US.

    I don't have a recommendation. The problem is that the budget, size restrictions, and intended use require serious compromises. Making all the compromises inside the case results in a tool that will likely be inadequate for the intended use.


    Ideally the budget would be higher.

    ok, let's say the budget was $1000, what would be best? I had an eye for a 2015 MacBook pro.

    Unlikely you will find a suitable slim mATX case that is well constructed and fits the budget. Besides, most slim mATX cases are less than 100mm wide and a full height gpu is generally at least 135mm tall.



    What do you guys think of this build? I plan to upgrade in the future.

    @BearmannWhat would be the best micro ATX slim case? I'm looking for something small, slim and portable since I want to go abroad for college.

    Where is the video card ?  Also if your doing rendering the Ryzen 5 2400G will fall or come short.  Also note Zen 2 is coming in July which means Zen 1 prices will fall down and you can affort a 6 core or even 8 core.  Also like the above chap said don't bother with a iGPU , You need a dedicated video card.

    Thanks for the tip. Do you have recommendations for a small form factor pc for this under 600 USD?
