  1. I own both a Pi 3B and Pi 4 4gb with Retropie, both using a decent sd card. Neither of them seem to have a difference in booting, but some load times might be faster on the pi 4. I'm going to guess that its the SD card being slow, but it might not make any difference as the Pi doesn't boot exceptionally fast. But if the boot and loading times are very slow, my guess is that the SD card is holding the Pi back.
  2. For storage you could get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Portable-External-Hard-Drive/dp/B07CRG7BBH/ or similar, but for performance there's not much that will help unless your system is having thermal issues.
  3. Depending on the game, the 1080ti should be able to keep up pretty well. Most games should be able to be ran at at around high settings at 144hz(sometimes medium), although some newer AAA games are horribly optimized, and you'll get lower framerates, but since this monitor supports freesync that shouldn't be an issue. For the majority of games this is a pretty good pairing. Value-Wise, you'd have to figure out if its worth it for you, but since the price is pretty cheap, in my opinion it is.

  5. Specs: RX 480 4GB I5-7400 2x4gb 2666mhz ddr4 Thermaltake something-or-other 600W MSI B250M Bazooka Windows 10 64 Bit Problem: Recently, I was adjusting my GPU fan curve in the Radeon Software, when I decided to change the limits on the GPU. I did not overclock the gpu, but rather set set the vram, clock speed, and power consumption limits to 150% for hopefully a little more performance. When I clicked apply, (At this point the fan curve was already applied) the Display turned black. I have tried multiple cables, gpu output slots, etc, to no avail. I unfortunately have no error codes due the display being off. The PC is currently still running, (Fans and lights fully on) so I was wondering if it would be safe to shut down the pc (This would mean cutting the power, b/c my power button is configured to only cut power, and turn on the PC, though I normally shut down using software) and boot it, presumably fixing the issue. However, given my only option is to cut power, would this potentially somehow brick the GPU? Any Help on solving this would be greatly appreciated! : )
  6. Case wise- I recommend the Phanteks P400A or P300A, as the P400A is the same case you've picked out, but it has a mesh front for a lot better airflow and thermals. Right now though, the P400A is sold out, so a very similar case would be the P300A, but the P400A is better if you can find it.

  8. The 1600af is 12nm, but I couldn't find it on pcpartpicker, so I just put in a 1600 and manually put in the price

  10. I'm looking to build a new PC soon, so I was wondering, would the 1600 AF bottleneck a 2070 super for 1440p and VR? Or would I be better off with a 2600 and a RX 5700 XT? Thanks
