  1. lol cool, do you know how as I do not I am running on windows 10
  2. Is it possible to have multiple display connected to one PC and have each display run in different resolutions? I have a 1440p 144 hz monitor as well as a 1080p 60 hz TV I am running them with the displays being duplicated instead of connected
  3. So I just got a new ASUS VG27A Monitor which has 144Hz refresh rate (165Hz when overclocked) The problem is that once I got it all plugged in I noticed that it was locked at 60Hz right away, after a little investigation I figured out that the reason it had locked it at 60Hz was because I also have my TV connected to the same PC, but the PC has a max refresh of 60Hz, preventing the new monitor from utilizing its full potential. So now the question I am afraid to know the answer to, am I screwed and need to either buy a new monitor with a higher refresh rate to match the monitor? Or is there by some chance a way to get around the auto lock from the TV so I can use the monitor at full refresh while still connected to the 60Hz TV? Thanks for any help!
  4. ok thanks! got a little of topic, but I do appreciate the advice either way
  5. I have a 1440p 144Hz monitor I do alot of gaming, but I do venture into editing and other stuff that the extra threads of the AMD nice to have

  7. Ok cool! But just to make sure, for a brand new build I do new to buy windows 10 for it correct?
  8. How reliable is it to buy a windows 10 key off of Ebay or Amazon? Building a new PC and was told that you can get them there super cheap, but is it actually reliable to get them there?
  9. How trust worthy is buying windows 10 off of ebay or amazon?
  10. I will be getting everything through memory express as I will be having them build the PC for me too.
  11. I am going with a 1440p monitor with a 144Hz refresh. I am getting this so it will upgrade from my current PC which runs 50 FPS at best when in the more demanding games. Also like the AMD with the extra threads to have something that I can do other things than gaming with. the monitor is an Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ
  12. Hey everyone, I am relatively new to PC builds and I have been saving up to build a new PC for a while and now I can finally splurge on something good. Here's what I've currently got planned out. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 3.9 GHz 8-Core Processor $419.99 @ Amazon Canada CPU Cooler Noctua NH-U14S 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler $89.95 @ Newegg Canada Marketplace Thermal Compound Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 3.5 g Thermal Paste $9.99 @ Canada Computers Motherboard Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE ATX AM4 Motherboard $268.75 @ Vuugo Memory Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory $109.99 @ Canada Computers Storage Kingston KC2000 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $219.50 @ Vuugo Video Card Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB WINDFORCE OC 3X Video Card $659.99 @ Newegg Canada Case Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case $128.50 @ Vuugo Power Supply Corsair RMx (2018) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $119.99 @ Best Buy Canada Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit $129.75 @ Vuugo Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $2156.40 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-12-26 12:04 EST-0500 So I actually picked all these parts on Memory Express with their system builder page. The reason is I have never done any physical work on a PC expect put in a new graphics card in my current PC, therefore I don't really trust myself to build it all by myself and not end up blowing up the whole thing. So I will be using them to build it for me. One thing I want to get checked is the CPU cooler, not sure if it is enough to cool it or if I should go with an AIO. Any help or recommendations on what I should change would be greatly appreciated! Thanks All
  13. Lol that was some funny politics talk I'll give you that Obviously I want to go as cheap as possible, that being said I'm able to go to the $2000 CAD mark without sweating too much about it. I have looked at Memory Express a little so I'll look into them some more from the recommendation.
  14. I am in central British Columbia, also I am hoping to go with a company that would build the PC for me after I picked all the parts, then send it to me. I am not all too confident in building it myself.
