  1. After reading these reviews, i'd personally go for AC Valhalla, purely based off how story seems so much more complete. "I feel for Immortals a bit. Blame Covid, blame budgets, blame Ubisoft, blame the paradoxically thrifty, endlessly repurposing way the publisher makes all its huge, expansive, generous games, but Immortals never really finds its own voice until the very end. It's a skilful, lovingly made product, but it is unmistakably a product, and the best games in this genre all feel like genuine adventures." https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-11-30-immortals-fenyx-rising-enj
  2. If you're on a windows machine, i recently experienced a similar issue. 300mbps normally, down to 5-10mbps. Turns out the issue had been caused by a recent windows update. I tried uninstalling the recent updates to no avail. After a quick windows reinstall the problem had been solved and i was back up to full speed. Make sure to copy your User folder before you reinstall windows to save any personal files from that drive.
  3. From the information i'm seeing after having a quick search on the internet about the problem, your best bet would be to try an older Radeon GPU driver. You can choose from all the past drivers at this link once you select your OS: https://www.amd.com/en/support/previous-drivers/graphics/amd-radeon-5600-series/amd-radeon-rx-5600-series/amd-radeon-rx-5600-xt Uninstall your old driver using DisplayDriverUninstaller(DDU), walkthrough here:
  4. After looking at the specifications of the 3070 SUPRIM and SUPRIM X at these links: https://www.msi.com/Graphics-Card/GeForce-RTX-3070-SUPRIM-8G/Specification https://www.msi.com/Graphics-Card/GeForce-RTX-3070-SUPRIM-X-8G/Specification There doesn't appear to be any difference apart from the out of the box clock speed, 1845Mhz on the SUPRIM and 1920Mhz on the SUPRIM X. The SUPRIM X also has a 10W power consumption bump. There shouldn't be any noticable difference between these cards so i'd go for whatever has the best deal on from wherever you're buying from.
  5. I'd go for the 3070 here, reason being: Performs slightly better than 2080Ti Includes all the extra 3000 series goodies Bang for the buck is definately gonna be the best assuming you can find one for around MSRP/cheaper than 2080ti As for your PSU, you shouldn't have any issues with this GPU upgrade but in future if you're getting a more powerful CPU, i'd definitley consider upgrading you PSU to a higher wattage.
  6. A quick google brought me to this page: https://www.seagate.com/files/staticfiles/docs/pdf/datasheet/disc/barracuda-ds1737-1-1111us.pdf Please do your own research.
  7. I was looking to upgrade to a 1070 with a greater aftermarket cooler but then i noticed there were a few blower style 1070ti's going for around £20 more. Is it worth the extra temps vs the coolness of the aftermarket 1070 or will the temps impact performance enough that it wouldnt be worth my time. The blower 1070ti was the MSI Aero version and the 1070 aftermarket was the zotac amp extreme.
  8. Today my PC froze with a black screen in the middle of playing ROTTR. I assumed it was the overclock i had on my CPU at the time so i went to the bios to change it back to stock. Booting my PC once again, worked fine for about 5 minutes before the same thing happened, black screen and the entire OS locks up. I tried to reboot about but once the OS loading got past the Windows 10 logo, it freezes and my monitor says no signal. I had updated my drivers recently for my R9 390 so i went about launching into safe mode to remove the latest updates with DDU. This process of DDU took an u
  9. It's only two months so you might as well wait and see. If it doesn't turn out as good as you hoped, then you have a choice to go with either.
  10. Do these security advancements come with the Fall Creators update or is this just Edge in general?
  11. OBS should work fine with your GTX 580. https://obsproject.com/
  12. I'm assuming they already have a case because one wasn't included in the list. Otherwise, looks good to me.
  13. For anyone who knows, why is a solo chip like this necessary to help with HDR+ and such? Why couldn't the main processor do it? Is it really that intense?
  14. If they build it and break something, they surely have to replace it. Might as well let them do it.
