  1. Simple question, I just don’t know if 16gb ram is worth buying. I always worry that I may not have enough ram to have several things open, especially while streaming. I haven’t seen my ram reach 90% or above, so I’m not sure whether I really need 16gb. However, I always close as many background tasks as I can and avoid opening things like Spotify. Even with these open, my ram doesn’t reach 95-100%. I don’t even know if it’s going to have an impact on performance, as my cpu is always at 100% while gaming. Finally, just wanted to point out a few things. I currently have 8gb ram (4x2) at 2666mhz, dual channel, and the ram that I’m looking at has 3200mhz, 16gb (8x2). So, what do you guys think?
  2. I’ve seen a bunch of videos and it seems like they all require an USB hub and a lightning to camera adapter which is a bit expensive. Is there any other way to do this? I have tried plugging both the microphone and the iPhone into the same usb hub but it didn’t work. The usb microphone I’m currently using is the Razer seiren X, and I am using an iPhone 8 with the latest version of iOS.
  3. Just upgrading ram, I currently have a 2x4 2666mhz dual channel
  4. Would it be worth it to have a 1x16 and a 1x4 and spend £20 more or just leave it at 2x8 and save the £20?
  5. I don’t know anything about building pc’s and I’m afraid I might break a component lol
  6. So as the title says, I need a pc under £1000 (with a monthly pay option I’m not rich lmao) that is able to stream and run games at 60fps smoothly. Currently, my Acer Nitro 5 (1050 4gb and i5-8300) struggles, as it sometimes has fps drops, especially through OBS/SLOBS. I can only stream at decent fps using shadowplay, which is not compatible for many games. I have found this: http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/saved/1871866 It’s quite cheap but I simply don’t know anything about AMD, as I have always used nvidia and Intel. Would that be good for streaming and playing? Looking to play at 1080p, doesn’t need to be at max settings, high. The only problem that I have is that with the pay monthly option, I would have to pay £1.3k instead of £800, which seems like a robbery lol. So any suggestions? This is another build I found: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/ocuk-gaming-spectra-gaming-pc-intel-core-i5-9400f-fs-1d7-og.html#p=bCdm350vbCdn3+04bCds32XvbCdt388;bCdA32Y;bCdB32XybCld3388

  8. I was decided for the Razer Phone 2, but then an amazing deal came for the iPhone 11 (black friday). 60GB of data, 64gb red version, for only £33 per month (75 upfront). The razer phone comes at 12gb, £29. I first chose the Razer because it had good specs, a brilliant screen and speakers, as well as battery, but now i do not know what to do. Battery is my worry as my iPhone 7 barely lasts, and i am afraid to get an iPhone again. I use my phone for everything, whether it be gaming or social media, camera is not important. I give my phone a very heavy use, so I would need a battery that can last quite a lot.
  9. Yeah I’ve done that but it doesn’t have advanced features.
  10. So my laptop is the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52 It has an i5-8300H, a 1050 (4GB) and a 1TB HDD. It seems that the laptop features and M.2 slot, but I wanted to make sure if this SSD would be compatible. Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07MTQTNVR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_QSSXDb1A1R08C As you can see, it has an incredible deal, 2TB for less than £200. However, I am not sure whether this is compatible, or whether this brand is trustworthy, as I haven’t really heard of it before. Should I buy it or just go for the Crucial MX 500?
  11. I have an Acer Nitro 5, AN515-52 with Insyde H20 rev. 5.0, v1.19. I was able to access the advanced bios menu (did this by pressing random keys), but I was not able to get back into it later on. In that menu I was able to enable overclocking (which I did), and many other things. However, when i restarted and i went back into the bios, i had the simple menu. I have tried many combinations, like Fn + Tab while in bios (pressing both once and three times), and I have also tried F2 (key to go to the bios) + A, but did not work. Does anyone know how i could get access to it again?
  12. @Kedohawyr Is installing those types of SSD safe? I am quite afraid that i may damage my pc in doing so
  13. So as you can see in the image, each hard disk has its own height, and i don't know which one is adequate for my laptop. I can't find my own hard drive specs. I was looking at the 3TB version, but it has a height of 15.5mm. I currently have a 1TB HDD, with intel Optane, and the only thing i could find is that the serial number of the hard drive is F6651718. I have tried looking this up but nothing came up. Is there anyway to find out which height I need? My computer is the Acer Nitro 5 (AN-515-52). I have also included my dxdiag. dxdiag.txt
  14. So as the title says, I have two choices and I don't know which one I should get. Currently, I am using 2x4GB at 2666Mhz, dual channel. I want of upgrading my ram, but I don't know what should I do. I can either upgrade my ram to 16GB at 3200Mhz (2x8), or upgrade the size to 20GB (1x4, 1x16) at 2666Mhz. I know that 16GB is quite good for gaming and such, but I don't know if the extra 4GB is worth it, as I do stream a lot and I have many background tasks. Below is my dxdiag, if someone wants to know my specs. This computer is a laptop, not a desktop. dxdiag.txt
