  1. Try Half Life Alyx, then it'll technically be VR sickness rather than motion sickness.
  2. As long as they can add PCIe 5.0 later, when it's needed, this all sounds good to me.
  3. There hasn't been any significant change in how AIOs work or are manufactured in the last 5 years. You were probably unlucky back then and more likely to get a better one if you buy now, but that's purely by chance.
  4. It depends on the resolution and even more so on what games you run, but generally a GTX 1060 is a bit less than you'd want for a high refresh rate monitor.
  5. I don't believe those limits are accurate. In any case, a motherboard can be configured differently or have a secondary controller that effectively (sort of) adds more lanes.
  6. Just depends how the manufacturer allocated the chipset resources, and whether they used any secondary controller chips to provide more connectivity.
  7. They're using a more expensive motherboard and CPU, though you're right that the CPUs are pretty comparable in performance. You also haven't included a CPU cooler and Windows key. So maybe the prebuilt tax is more like $500 Canadian in this case. Still shows you why prebuilts are not normally recommended. There may still be better prebuilt deals around, but this certainly isn't the worst you could pick.
  8. At 3600 MHz those are really good timings.
  9. Not that realistic as it's dried. I'm thinking of a proper goopy thermal paste between the pins. That's gonna be really annoying to get out, just flooding the place with solvent isn't a good solution to that either.
  10. I don't see any reason you couldn't have a better latching system with PGA, just AMD has picked a pretty flimsy one for some reason. Also, I completely disagree that it's easy to clean an LGA socket if you get thermal paste into it.
  11. Yeah most likely. Lots of small files could slow it down but your HDD should be able to transfer faster than 20 Mbps (2.5 MB/s) on average.
  12. Just depends whether it can be reinstalled in the new location. Steam and some other stores can do that.
  13. It's funny because the US whines loudly when EU countries try to tax US corporations on money made in the EU.
  14. Traditionally, a core refers to the integer unit. FPUs weren't even part of early x86 CPUs. So from a technical perspective the judgement was wrong. But since it was about misleading consumers, you have to take into account what an average consumer knows about CPUs, and then I guess it's fair that a 4-core Bulldozer chip isn't comparable to an Intel 4-core chip.
  15. It has 4 integer cores, but only 2 FPUs. Sometimes that gets counted as 2 cores with hyperthreading, but that's inaccurate.
