About Scrub2.0

  • Title
  1. Didn't find a thread with the information. Basically why is the price of 2 sticks of ddr4 from some companies almost 70% less then 4 sticks of ddr4 Crucial Ballistix being 1 such example https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/gLGxFT/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3200-memory-bls2k8g4d32aesbk https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/KZprxr/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-32-gb-4-x-8-gb-ddr4-3200-memory-bls4k8g4d32aesbk Now obviously not all companies and increase prices to such an extreme, but for those that do. I don't understand the methodology behind it. Is there some special property that the 4 sticks have over 2? that the 4 sticks or more expensive? Yes I know you could literally just buy 2 of the 2 set, but that defeats the purpose of the question. Hope someone could give me more insight into the subject!

    Aren't those scripted in to be more just funny or witty interactions, while not the most refined in it's own sense have a relative humor to them.

    First PC, Need advice on GPU and PSU

    Waiting for a processor that will more then likely have teething issues for the first 6 months of it's life, since it's a new architecture and will need various bios updates for that time span, does not sound like a fun time to me. I do appreciate the suggestion though. Looks reasonable. Would you surmise that I would also be able to stream off the set up you suggested? otherwise I was thinking I would re-purpose the pre-built I'm currently using as a streaming PC

    Krita for illustrating and shotcut for video editing.
  5. 1. Budget & Location Nothing more then 1.5k Canadian. Canadia. 2. Aim Gaming, video editing, and digital 2D drawing. The most strenuous game I will most likely be playing BDO, I'd be fine with 75 up to 100 FPS at high setting at 1080p. 3. Monitors Current monitor is Asus vg245h, 75hz, 1080p, I'm looking to get more monitors but not any time soon. 4. Peripherals None necessary for purchase. 5. Why are you upgrading? The laptop I'm currently using has slowed down significantly and the performance of the placeholder pre-built desktop is disappointing, yes I know I could simply upgrade the pre-built I simply don't want to. 6. Additional A few questions, does 3200 ddr4 out of the box work on x470? or do I need to fiddle with the BIOS? and does anyone have or has used PSU's from PC Power & Cooling? im very interested in getting their Silencer Mk III series of PSU's for ascetics. I don't plan to OC but it is an option. Lastly this is my current build on pcpartpicker.
