  1. This is why I really appreciate Gamers Nexus, Hardware Unboxed, and other channels that review specific AIB cards. As for OP's comments. I think the video game industry is changing but I don't think it will be the death of the enthusiast market. I say that for two reasons: 1. Look at how many people have bought and pre-ordered the RTX 3080 and now 3090. There is clearly still a market for enthusiasts parts and as long as there is demand, there will be supply. 2. A lot of pc enthusiasts are not just in it because it is economical. Many of us are hobbyists who simply enjoy building and messing around with PC hardware. So if other far more obscure hobbies with no economical value can continue to thrive than so can ours.
  2. I would try and get a 10900K. The 10900K is a solid upgrade over the 9820X for gaming due to the higher clock speeds and overclocking potential. Nevertheless, I wouldn't say your current processor is an issue. The 3090 reviews will be out shortly (some randoms on youtube have already benchmarked the thing but I would wait for Linus and other big techtubers to do it). If you've got the money for it, I am sure the 3090 will be an excellent card. If you want to save some money, I would wait for the new AMD graphics cards to come out and/or the rumoured "super" variant of the 3080 which will have far more memory. 1. According to 3DMark, your score is average for that CPU/GPU combo. See the link here. Upgrading to a 10900K will, according to 3DMark, give you a small boost to performance, especially in the graphics department. 2. I think your expectations are, unfortunately, not in line with what the 2080 TI can offer. The 2080 Ti is a great 4K graphics card but it won't be able to do more than an average of 60 fps without lowering the settings down significantly. In many AAA games you will have to lower some settings to hit 60 fps at 4K. This is just the limitation of that year's technology but an upgrade to the 3080 will help. 4. It is the Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 chip and I have done a little googling without too much luck (I would recommend you research yourself a little bit). I did notice there is a place for antennas on the I/O of the motherboard so make sure those are attached. For now, I would try and do some of the following basic troubleshooting: (1) try and connect the controllers while standing behind or near the back of the computer to rule out if the issue is merely bad connectivity and/or interference; (2) disable and re-enable the bluetooth controller in the device manager; and (3) rollback to an earlier driver. One final note for gaming performance is that you will likely be fine playing Cyberpunk 2077 on high settings with RT at 4K if you turn on DLSS. No guarantee though. Best of luck!
  3. Depends on the game. Games that push higher graphical fidelity will likely not be bottlenecked by the 3600. A game like CS:GO, however, will be bottlenecked by the CPU since it is so easy to render. Even at 1080p, I don't think the 2080ti is a bad purchase. The 3080 will be more bottlenecked by the 3600 to the point that there is almost no difference in performance on average between it and the 2080ti. That said, the 3080 is far more future proof and I imagine it will show its superiority more and more as time goes on.
  4. A higher refresh rate is usually preferred for competitive games like CS:GO and LoL because it means you can respond faster. As a result, most would rather go with a 1080p 144Hz panel over a 1440p 75Hz panel. If you play for fun and don't really care to be better in those types of games than 1440p will offer you a more crisp image and gaming experience. However, if you ever try and play a more demanding game, then at 1440p you will likely have a worse experience than at 1080p. Your 1560 will do worse at 1440p than at 1080p.
  5. The problem is that your perspective is not necessarily the perspective everyone will have. I agree that LMG wasn't trying to make fun of people with strabismus but that doesn't mean it can't have that effect. Edit: Reddit has some better commentary on this topic from people who actually experience the disability (at least to a point, it is reddit after all). My bigger problem is with the tone taken here to effectively insult the OP for even bringing it up. This thread has gone on for long enough. I think we've all heard each side of the argument plus some and can lay it to rest?
  6. And you're forgetting that some people have strabismus and live with it everyday. For them, this thumbnail could be another reminder that their disability is just a funny face to others. I don't think the OP is wrong for pointing out how this thumbnail may be at the expense for others. I don't see the reason, however, that so many of you feel the need to insult them. There are more civil ways to say you don't agree.
  7. You can use an adapter such as this one: amazon link or like this one: amazon link. (Sorry I am in Canada but look on any retailer in NZ for something equivalent and just make sure it supports SATA m.2)
  8. I don't agree. OP clearly has good intentions (as well) and just views this differently than we do. Just because you don't see it their way doesn't mean they're a "snowflake" and I find the notion of calling people snowflakes hypocritical. If you're so offended by people bringing to light that a certain joke may be at the expense of someone else (to the point that you feel the need to throw an insult at them), then you're just as much of a snowflake.
  9. Unfortunately not! I had the opposite occur to me last month when a new SSD I bought didn't work with my mobo because the second m.2 slot was only for SATA SSDs like yours (the first slot was already pre-occupied). You will have to get an adapter.
  10. I agree that this resembles the visual impairment you're referencing but I genuinely don't think most people are aware of it and/or making the connection. Either way, if people with Strabismus are offended then I am sure Linus and the team at LMG group would be apologetic. Like everyone else, I'm confident they did not intend to do harm with this thumbnail.
  11. This is not the issue. The issue is that he is trying to connect a SATA m.2 SSD to m.2 slots which only support the PCIe protocol. I checked his motherboard's manual: 1x M.2 slot (M2_2, Key M)* Supports PCIe 2.0 x4 2242/ 2260 /2280 storage devices 1x M.2 slot (M2_1, Key M)* Supports PCIe 3.0 x4 (1st, 2nd and 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™/ Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics and 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Graphics) or PCIe 3.0 x2 (AMD® Athlon™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics) and SATA 6Gb/s 2242/ 2260 /2280 storage devices Note: only with an AMD athlon can the m.2 slot support a SATA SSD.
  12. Thanks. I was able to confirm that your SSD uses the SATA protocol and, while it may fit into the m.2 slots of your motherboard, your motherboard's m.2 slots only support the PCIe protocols. I believe you can get various adapters to either connect to a standard SATA port or to connect to a typical PCIe slot (like the ones your GPU uses). Best of luck
  13. Please post a link of the SSD. I can look up the mobo.
