  1. I have not been able to get update KB4556799 a.k.a (2020-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1909 for x64-based Systems) to successfully install at all, always receiving the error code 0x800f0831. I've tried a few tips such as using the troubleshooter, disabling my VPN, various CMD prompts and even try to download and install it manually. None of them work. Any ideas? I run on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.
  2. I remember BTC being around $18K then tanking shortly afterward. Why did so many people go for video card mining if ASIC miners are more efficient anyways?
  3. I remember back 2 years ago or so that there was a shortage of computer hardware because some were buying them all up for bitcoin mining (and other currencies). What specifically happened and how did it end?
  4. Unless its some compatibility thing, I think that any DDR4 kit should be ok. I don't own alienware products so I can't be 100% certain on that.
  5. Try a simple wireless AC router. I have a nighthawk 7000 for instance. If all the devices are generally used concurrently, you might consider getting a better data plan
  6. The reason I keep choosing an sfx modular psu is to have more space to work with and not have to deal with a lot of wires as opposed to the cx450. Also I keep choosing the 970 evo for its reliability. I don't know how that HP ssd will perform. A $30 video card is fine for basic video out. I also restrict my merchant lists to not have to buy from too many locations. EDIT: For ram, 16GB with good warranty is fine. Warranty and reliability are important for this build so I'm willing to put in more expensive parts even if there is no performance benefit.
  7. I made an AMD equivalent to see how it would compare. The board choice was for the m.2 port for a fast SSD PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 3.2 GHz 8-Core Processor ($149.99 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX X470-I GAMING Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard ($195.00 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($64.98 @ Amazon) Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($87.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.99 @ Newegg) Case: Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini ITX Tower Case
  8. Someone did state earlier that this is not a gaming pc, but also the fact that overclocking voids warranty, something that I can't do for this build EDIT: I also want to mention that dust filters are necessary for this PC due to the type of workplace
  9. The processor needs to be something that can handle multiple tabs of various programs and tabs of chrome without slowing down. Storage is mostly the same with an ssd/hdd combo. I tried to specifically find a motherboard with an m.2 ultra slot for an SSD. It is not absolutely necessary to reach $1000, just has to be quick and store a ton of files (hence the ssd/hdd combo)
  10. Thank you for your suggestions but I prefer to not have a dedicated video card since this pc won't be used for any games. However, a small GPU only for basic video out is okay
  11. Hello guys. I have been tasked with building a pc for my father's workplace up to a $1000 dollar budget and I wanted to see if there can be improvements made or an AMD equivalent. The primary task will be for storing documents, excel, photographs, and web browsing (generally multiple tabs open).Please let me know of what you think. This is nowhere near a final decision so, if you have suggestions, there are some things I want to point out. 1. A mini-itx case with dust filters is preferred (I haven't been able to find one). 2.The cpu or the board must have integrated graphics. 3. The cpu should
  12. When I was installing win95 on a virtual machine, I had to install DOS first but I don't understand why. Can someone explain to me?
  13. Personally, I don't mind if it can be weaponized or not, but thorium is a better fuel overall.
  14. A regular HDD will work fine. SSDs are better used for operating systems or archival storage
  15. Did you check your system for malware, or bloatware that could take up the CPU's run time?
