  1. As seen in this video the difference in windows bootup and game loading times between a SATA SSD and a PCIe SSD is measurable but not worth investing a considerably larger amount into a PCIe SSD instead of a SATA one.
  2. Unless you'll be using your CPU for productivity applications that heavily prefer Intel CPUs there shouldn't be any reason to go for above combination since as said above your GPU will be a considerable bottleneck in the system with a 9900K, in addition to the fact that there's no upgrade path from the 9900K!
  3. Are you going to carry over an hard drive from your previous build? 250GB is enough for Windows, Dota 2 and like 1-2 modern AAA games.
  4. They can see that you're connecting from the VPNs servers but unless you're logged in somewhere or being tracked by cookies there's no way for them to know what country you're from or what your origin IP address is and as long as the VPN provider doesn't keep logs there's realistically no way to track the connection from the VPN back to you specifically!
  5. Transfer the BTC to a trustworthy standalone wallet application like Electrum, but be very wary of downloading the correct thing and not, for example, clicking scam ads on google results. If you're going to be storing the BTC for a long time then get a hardware wallet and move your BTC to it once it arrives. You should carefully consider your way forward with all the money. Keeping the BTC might yield some more profit if the value of BTC goes up in the future, but you run the risk of it going down again. Consider the fact that BTC slumping back down to the $3,5K range it was just a while ago would leave you at around $30K which is a big loss and definitely a larger loss than just trading it into fiat currency, paying the taxes and then depositing into a savings account. If you traded it for fiat currency you could make future plans for the money and trust in them without having to worry about the course of BTC value. If you wanted to support BTC as a currency you would keep it as BTC forever and directly buy things as BTC, but I doubt a college would accept tuition payment in BTC for a long long time.
  6. There's absolutely no reason to use windows with its extra overhead. And MineOS is as easy because it has a web GUI and actually comes with a lot of features that would be cumbersome to implement on a windows VM.
  7. All you'd really need is a simple 2 channel mixer with headphone output and something like the audio extractor you linked above. Then just plug the Xbox and the PC into the headphone mixer to hear both at the same time and also plug in the headset mic into the PC to chat through it.
  8. Pretty predictable seeing the error code and knowing the issue only happens in a specific point. Although I'd still recommend making your OC P95 small FFT capable
  9. Untrue! It's a rendering benchmark that doesn't check for errors. It's only useful for benchmarking the speed of a CPU. Even if your computer blue screens it means that there's been a fatal error that the system can't recover from but even if it doesn't happen there might be small errors in the rendering job that don't make the computer blue screen.
  10. Does Cinebench even check for errors? Even if Cinebench doesn't crash or exhibit any odd behavior it doesn't mean there aren't small errors caused by an unstable overclock that might cause some issues in other applications. I don't think this is CPU related but if you really aren't confident enough to run P95 small FFT then I wouldn't be confident that your CPU at 5Ghz isn't causing errors in the background that you might just not be noticing.
  11. It literally says the GPU driver has crashed. So I think there's some bug in the driver and/or the game for it to be crashing at some specific part of an intro. Try to either update your GPU driver or if you're on the newest version already then try uninstalling the GPU driver and reinstalling it. I highly doubt it has anything to do with the CPU since it says display driver and only happens at a specific point in a specific game.
  12. As much as something like userbenchmark.com might give you a good indication of what to expect out of a CPU it really isn't a good tool to find out if a specific CPU will provide more value to YOU over another model. Especially since it wouldn't know at what price OP can acquire said processors and other factors like if they play a lot of games that like higher single threaded performance.
  13. I googled "2700x vs 2700 value comparison" and this was the 4th result, please try googling things before asking such questions. And if you actually wanted some useful answers then we would at least need to know what you'd be using the CPU for and what are the prices you can acquire said CPUs for. But really there's probably tens of videos online comparing the two CPUs in different use cases, so go find one that has your use cases benchmarked, see the results and evaluate if the increase in performance from 2700 to 2700x is worth the increase in price you'd have to pay.
  14. All I can tell you is that you should find a way to double your budget and try to find a GTX 1050ti (low profile) from some second-hand marketplace in India.
  15. Any graphics card that fits all the three criteria I listed above, has sufficient performance for your needs and is available at a retailer/seller you can acquire one from. The whole point of graphics card reviews benchmarking is for people like you to know what to expect from a graphics card or what graphics card to get to fill your expectations. If you want specific recommendations then you need to at least tell us your use case (games you play), budget and location and then we might be able to give you some recommendations.
