  1. So here's the deal: I bought a laptop (Dell Inspiron 7000 13-inch) about a year and a half ago and the battery is beginning to give out on me. What was supposed to be an advertised 4 hours of battery life is now ~50 minutes, and with the semester right around the corner, I need to replace it. I know there are replacements, out there on Amazon, eBay, etc. but I want to know what do I specifically need to look for. All I can only find is 38Wh and 42Wh, but my current one is 36Wh. Would those be compatible? Thanks in advance for the help!
  2. Hi! I’m a relatively amateur PC builder and here’s my dilemma: I just finished ordering all my parts for a new rig that I’m upgrading to, but after watching a lot of YouTube guides for building a PC, I’m admittedly getting pretty nervous that the PSU I ordered won’t be enough to power the whole system. Here’s the spec list. CPU: AMD Ryzen 2600 GPU: MSI GTX 1660 VENTUS XS OC RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8Gb DDR4-3200 Mobo: ASRock B450-HDV SSD: Crucial BX500 1Tb PSU: Corsair CX450 Is that PSU enough? I’ve been watching other YouTubers buy 550+watts PSUs w/ similar spec computers and it’s making me think I made the wrong choice. I’m super psyched to build this pc when everything comes in, but I can’t shake this feeling of unease. Maybe you guys can help put my mind at rest? I don’t plan on overclocking at all, btw! Thanks in advance for the help!!
  3. This is my motherboard. I know it's LGA1150, but the cpu placeholder says 115X. What does that mean? Does it support 1151 as well?
  4. That sounds doable. My budget is ~$400. What GPU and SSD did you have in mind, if any?
  5. This was definitely another path I was willing to take, but my hesitation for that comes from the fact that since a lot of these parts are relatively old and very used, I'm not sure what to charge for it all.
  6. My budget is around $400. I'd be willing to wait until I have more, though.
  7. Hey guys, first time poster here. So I have a PC, but it's super outdated. Now that I'm making some decent bucks, I want to upgrade it some. Note that I bought it pre-built, and have made some upgrades since then, but I haven't changed anything for a few years. Here are the specs: CPU - Intel i5 4430 GPU - GTX 1050Ti RAM - 8GB DDR3 1600mhz MOBO - idk some generic motherboard by Lenovo Storage - 2TB HDD 7200rpm Before you say anything, yeah. I know. It's pretty wonky, but it was getting the job done. The uses of this pc include basic computing/office work, playing League of Legends and the occasional Dark Souls III or Forza Horizon 3, and photo and video editing. Any suggestions for what I can do to sort of bring it up to date? I was thinking upgrading my CPU, MOBO, and RAM, but IDK. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
