  1. This is a question to every pc builder whos been building since the 90s-early to mid 2000s: What was you experience like back then? How did you learn how to build pcs without resources like the internet?? I've always had these questions. Thanks in advance

    Thermaltake smart rgb 700w?

    Do you think a cx650m or cx750m will suffice?

    Thermaltake smart rgb 700w?

    Ryzen 2600x (may upgrade to 3700x), 16gb ram, and 1660ti
  4. I bought a thermaltake smart rgb 700 watt for my first build a while back because the frys I was at didn't have the corsair one I was looking for in stock. now looking back i'm wondering if I should replace it with something better or just stay with this one for the time being?

    How to uninstall Chromium?

    I think I've uninstalled it. I just searched 'chromium' in 'This PC' in file explored and deleted every result. It seems to have gone away. I'm not 100% sure though
  6. I downloaded a rom from a site and I think it gave me chromium and now I just want to get rid of it but its not showing up in the add or remove programs setting in control panel. How do I get rid of it?
  7. I have been seeing a lot of place that if you want a cheap gaming pc, you should put a low profile graphics card into a dell optiplex, and I've been seeing quite a lot on craigslist for some reasonable prices. I've been thinking of buying these and putting a low profile graphics card in there then flip it for cash over the summer. Since at the moment I can't get a job at the moment (at least all the jobs I can get aren't really for me) I was thinking of doing this for money. But what did you guys do for money involving pcs in teen years?

    Experiences with non-techies

    Now I don't consider myself a 'techie' but I know a bit about computers (at least a bit more than that avg person, I want to think, but not as much as some people) but my mom used to (not as much lately) call me to come to her then I would come and turns out she just needed to copy and paste some stuff. She didn't know how to copy and paste
  9. I was chatting with someone about console vs pc gaming. He said "Yeah, you can keep a good gaming pc for 10 years" I was very skeptical, since i'm pretty sure no one uses a 10 year old pc (at least for gaming). So, how long do you guys use your pc before an upgrade

    Is it worth it to get 2 monitors?

    Kinda, my desk is pretty small and it would save a ton of space to get a desk clamp dual monitor arm than stick with the monitors I've seen them on amazon to, they look pretty cheap and decent. Idk if I would be able to get them because I'm kinda restricted to buying from stores.

    Is it worth it to get 2 monitors?

    I've been looking and to get a 144hz monitor and a dual monitor arm (as I want to use my current monitor) is almost $300 at my local Frys (yes I know I can get at least the monitor arm for cheaper online but I don't want to wait for shipping) just wondering if you think it's better to stick with one or get another
  12. UPDATE: turns out I didn't name it correctly (I put C6H.cap instead of C6H.CAP) I've tried it again, and it should be updating now
  13. Hello, I have a Asus Crosshair VI hero x370 board that I'm trying to pair with a ryzen 5 2600x. I know you have to update the bios to get it to work, so I looked up how to do it without a cpu installed or whatnot (I used this video) and I tried it, but when I plugged it in none of the bios buttons were turning on. I've now been getting really nervous over the past couple on minutes that I bricked my board, since this is my first build. Idk what I did, As I supposed to turn on the power supply? can anyone help?
