    For lower-end games like CS, yes, but dont expect to run that on the newest triple-aaa games. For that You'd need at least a 5700xt thats decently cooled.

    As @zeusthemoose said, the Asus  Asus zephyrus g14 is a very promising contender, and is maybe the best fit for your needs, *besides* the webcam. 8 cores, 16 threads, a 2060 Max-Q for graphical tasks or just for gaming 😆 and a beautiful 144hz panel, all inside a slim little chassis. I feel for you a External webcam+ the g14 is a very good way to go.

    Brok3n But who cares? got a reaction from Gegger in True wireless earbuds-   
    Hey-
    I'm looking at Sub-$100 true wireless earbuds for working out, and want to ask the forums for some options. As I mentioned, I'm looking to use these primarily for exercise, but I won't be used for exercise exclusively. High priorities for the earbuds are a comfortable fit, decent battery life, Bluetooth connection strength, and of course some type of water/dust resistance if possible. Currently Sound quality is a nice-to-have, and I'm not in the market for earbuds that try to imitate audiophile/sound neutral headphones. I don't plan on listening to particularly quiet or detailed music, but I will at... eh fairly high volumes. Right now I've been looking at the Jlab audio JBuds, if you've heard of them. One of my concerns about it is that I use an Android phone, and these headphones only support AAC which isn't supposed to play very nice with Android. How would that compare to headphones with aptX support? 
     
    Ty for reading my rant, any and all advice is gratefully accepted, just please let me know if you're not very experienced with the topic, or are unsure of your recommendation.
    Thanks

    Congratulations!
    Would you consider getting the Asus zephyrus g14? It comes with all your requirements except the webcam. If I were you, I would get that laptop and add an external webcam. Buying both of those would still be in your budget.

    Brok3n But who cares? got a reaction from Darpyface in I need advice with a good monitor for my Zephyrus g14   
    There isn't going to be be a huge difference, if any. The 2060 will already struggle to run some games at 120fps on high settings, but just realize 120hz to 144hz (a max fps of 120 to 140) isn't a big differrence. Save that $350 for something else, unless you really think you want a bigger monitor. Then I could reccomend a plethera of monitors between $200 and $350 for you to choose from, ranging from good to great.

    3600 should be totally fine, perhaps even more than tottally fine. Just make sure to get a decent-ish gpu, such as a radeon 570, or 5500xt, or 1650super, should futureproof the rig for further useage down the road for gaming. If he/you dont know, building it yourself is a great way to save hundreds, even on lower-end systems, and on the low-end, many system builders cheap out in any way possibly to get the spec sheet to look decent, and the price to something "reasonable," but trust me, It's pretty likely to crap out on you over a long period of time, but other than that prebuilding is fine I guess..

    Brok3n But who cares? got a reaction from IAmAndre in hd 4000.   
    Hardly. Even if the price was $40 I would say it wouldn't be worth it. Theres too many variables, such as is the chip sautered on the the motherboard, and did you know that for $150 you could go out to walmart and purchase a better-performaing laptop? Yeap. There's $150 walmart laptops with third-gen ryzen 3's and radeon 3 graphics that will still beat the poor old Intel HD graphics up. 
     
    I think that even if you chonk out the $170 to upgrade (which is ***far*** too much), It would only really slightly help the performance if at all. Recently, I've looked at some Leveno flex 14's, which are slim, light and come with some decent graphics, at a good price. This is the best bang for buck deal I've found so far: https://www.costco.com/lenovo-flex-5-14"-2-in-1-touchscreen-laptop---amd-ryzen-7-4700u---1080p.product.100579313.html 
    IPS display, Slim bezels, 16gb of ram, a 512 gb m.2, and the 4700u. It has radeon 7 graphics, but is fairly up to par with the radeon 8 graphics.

    Being honest you're in a tight spot for an upgrade. I'd reccomened buying an SSD if  you dont have one already,  maybe a new cpu cooling solution, a new case, and a new power supply, but all that is optional based on your opinion. For the msot part, save your money for later, until new CPUs/GPUs launch, (By Nvidia and AMD, I'm just going to ignore intel), and then you might want to consider upgrading either your CPU or GPU, but right now, for your budget and intended use, you're basically good.

    Brok3n But who cares? reacted to huilun02 in Fast charging on Galaxy S20 ULTRA   
    The fast charging method is indeed USB PD
    So get a PD charger that explicitly states it is capable of 45W or faster charging out of a single port
     
    A lot of chargers on the market are advertised using their total combined output over all ports, instead of the peak speed of the most capable port. So be careful with what you buy if you want full 45W fast charging.

    Building off this :
    8gb-16gb, doesnt need to be a very fast speed, just do the average speed for ddr3, perhaps ~1600mhz. For the GPU, depending on what you want to do you might want to get a slimmed-down rx570-590, gtx 1650S, or perhaps a smaller 5500-5600xt, any of those should work depending on what games you want to play, also depending on the resolution, target FPS, and game settings.

    The machine doesn't do anything. No beeps, LEDs or spinning fans.
    Check if your power cable is firmly plugged in on both ends (you would be surprised how many issues this resolves) Check if the power supply (PSU) has a button to cut the power to the machine. Check if this button is in the position denoted with ON or I Check if EVERY power cable is plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. Check if the power button is installed correctly (consult your motherboard manual) Try shorting out the pins you connect the power button to manually. If this powers on your system, you have a faulty power button. Check with a device of which you know that it works if the power outlet you're using is actually providing power. If this hasn't solved the problem, check if your PSU isn't dead. To do this, you can follow these steps:
    Unplug your power cord and/or flip the switch on the back of the PSU in the position denoted with OFF or 0 Unplug every connector coming from your PSU (this is very important) Using a bent paperclip, short out the green wire on the 24 pin header with any of the black wires, like so. If you have a PSU that shuts down its fan under low load, or a PSU that is fanless, connect something small like a hard drive to it. Plug in your power cord and/or flip the switch on the back of the PSU in the position denoted with ON or I If the PSU does NOT power on (the fan/hard drive you connected should start spinning) after following these steps, your PSU is in all likelyhood defective. Request an RMA.
    If the PSU DOES power on, then the problem is most likely your motherboard.
     
     
    The machine does power up, but my screen remains black (no POST).
    Make sure your BIOS version is compatible with the CPU generation you're trying to run in your motherboard, you can consult the manual or the manufacturer's website about this. Check if EVERY power cable is connected. Auxiliary power connectors included. Make sure the cable coming from your monitor is attached securely to the graphics card. Also make sure it is securely attached to the monitor itself. Make sure your PSU is powerful enough to power your complete system. Make sure your monitor works by testing it on a different computer. If you have both a dedicated GPU and an iGPU, try your monitor on both the outputs on the graphics cards as well as on the motherboard. Make sure all connectors and cables are plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. Make sure your RAM, CPU and GPU are plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. If the motherboard you're using has debug LEDs, check the error code and consult the motherboard manual to see what it means. If you have a debug speaker connected to the motherboard, note the beep sequence and consult the motherboard manual or this thread to see what it means. Try clearing your CMOS. Try booting your computer with only a motherboard, CPU and one stick of RAM attached (if you don't have an iGPU, plug in your GPU as well ). Make sure your GPU works (if you have a dedicated one), try it in another computer. Make sure your RAM works, try it another computer. Make sure the RAM is compatible with your CPU and your motherboard.  
    If the PC still doesn't POST after this, create a new thread and, as explained here, post IN FULL DETAIL about your problem. Make sure you include the following:
    System configuration Troubleshooting steps you already did Any additional information that may be relevant.

    Brok3n But who cares? got a reaction from Gegger in Monitor reccomendations?   
    Hey-
    I'm looking for a decent 1440p 144hz gaming IPS ect. monitor for under $350. I just honestly dont know where to start since amazon is kind of a mess right now. I'm looking for a monitor under $350 MSRP but if there isn't a decent one on the market ~$450. Otherwise looking for a IPS monitor between 27-35 inches which has a nice look to it- Modern, non-chonk, little to no rgb, premium parts, you get what I mean. G sync is a want but not a need, and HDR 400, 600+ would be awesome. Any help or sharing of knowledge is greatly appreciated, especially any detailing if one actually exists for the price limit I have = )

    Don't get a nzxt case. please. Get a Phanteks p300a and a arctic p12 value pack. For the GPU, I'd reccomened a 5700xt Red devil if you can get your hands on it (It can perform at ~100 fps on medium settings on most  triple aaa games 1440p, and over 200 on medium at 1080p). tri-fan cooler, $410-$430 price tag, performance very close to the 2070S before you hit it with a oc. Otherwise EVGA 2060 KO at around $300 USD is decent (with 100-140 fps on medium on most triple aaa games If i'd have to guess), then just go 1660S for about $220 if it doesnt meet your budget which will still perform fine
