  1. Yeah I feel like waiting could be a good idea just i wouldnt want to miss out on something for lack of patience Is there any benefit to my looking at say Ryzen 7 or is it largely a waste for my requirements?
  2. Hello everyone, wow, not been here in a while.... Anyway, I am looking to upgrade my PC as my 4770k is starting to bog me down, I game at 1440p 60 or 1080p 144hz, (hoping to upgrade to 1440p 144hz later in the year) I edit 4k footage from my Sony A73 in davinci resolve Wanting to do some stwitch streaming (probably using nvenc) not sure how CPU dependant this is Most games etc are fine but some new games like COD Warzone are pushing my CPU to 100% when gaming, and im struggling to edit 4k etc as its just so laggy My current pc is a 4770k 16GB C
  3. There is also the Sigma 30mm F1.4 which is superior optically although the Sony does have stabilisation which could be a benefit the 55-210 is okay nothing special but cheap and light for tele use instead of the 16-50 you could get the 18-105 or 18-135 which are both much sharper
  4. Hi there shadow captain, i really respect and appreciate your advice and overall insight into computing specifications.

    I'm no stranger to the gaming community although i am an absolute novice when it comes down to gaming desktops and gaming laptops.

    I'm currently in the process of trying to buy my first gaming laptop for a budge of < £1,200 which i can also use for video editing and design work. The features i am looking for include: good screen quality, a good build chassis , a good cpu/gpu. I have found 2 laptops and i would appreciate it if you could briefly tell me if they are any good for what im looking for and if the price does justice for the specs...

  5. Keyboard no Mouse 10000000000% definately Screen - helps to use a proper monitor
  6. yeah doing hunting would be a safe way of getting your shoot on shooting poor people in the street with a bb gun is completely not
  7. bbs guns are not particularly damaging, considering as a sport people shoot each other with them brandishing them in public is illegal, and shooting somebody not in a game is assault and if armed police came would probably shoot you Also, you would harm genuine airsofters being reckless IF you want to shoot people with bbs guns, join an airsoft site and do it safely

Anything that could have gone wrong with this video, went very wrong indeed - hopefully its still enjoyable and educational!!!
