    Philcat101 got a reaction from TacoSenpai in Migrating from One SSD to Another   
    You'll need software that will migrate all of the partitions and stuff
    You can find great guides via google/youtube search, here is my (Simplified) experience:
     
    Got new drive, hook it up, check it out in disk management
    Got EaseUS Todo Backup, made sure drive got recognized
    Copied all partitions of my C drive to the new drive, took not too long
    Try to boot off new SSD
    If successful, reformat the old drive fro future use (optional)
    done

    I remember watching a video from Linus tech tips and they were using Windows xp or something and the problem with it was that even though minecraft is a small game, it's just not compatible.

    For me, peripherals is something you should put some cash in mainly because you're interacting with it everytime you're on your computer, it's something you touch and feel.
     
    Just my 2 cents.

    Comparing an RX480 to a 1060 isn't really a fair fight. the 1060 wins in pretty much every game/situation by a decent margin, but its also a bit more expensive. It would be like comparing a 1070 and a 1080. One is objectively better than the other, but it also comes with a higher price to get you there.

    Long story short, between the 480 and 1060, Get whichever you can best afford. the 1060 is the better card. the 1060 is also the more expensive card.

    Philcat101 reacted to Excelior in Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions   
    Hey LTT and LMG team,
     
    I know you've done previous videos on different types of display technologies like IPS vs. TN, LED vs LCD vs Plasma, or how color is displayed on monitors, refresh rate, etc.
     
    I was wondering if you could kind of wrap all of these discussion into one video focusing on why some people have horrible eye strain with certain technologies in monitors. It seems like more and more people are struggling with eye strain after working in-front of their monitors for a whole day. Basically, what combination of the display technologies available today would decrease the likelihood of experiencing eye strain after a day of work? Perhaps end the episode with some specific recommendations of panels that provide the lowest likelihood of eye strain?

    Philcat101 got a reaction from NinjaJc01 in AMD CPUs WITH DDR4   
    No...
    Who told you that?
    And BTW Intel has greater performance to price even though there are less cores
    so yeah

    Philcat101 reacted to valdyrgramr in AMD CPUs WITH DDR4   
    Oh ok.
    Well, for gaming yes and many tasks.  The only real benefit of DDR4 is editing speeds and folding/science/crap like that.

    It depends on the CPU more, and you are well equipped.
    I think it would like more clockspeed, but you have so many cores/threads that it doesn't matter too much

    Philcat101 got a reaction from Murasaki in H170/Z170/B150 chipsets - does it all matter?   
    B series: Budget oriented
    H series: Mid range, more features (depends on motherboard)
    Z series: Overclock-able if you have the CPU for it
     
    Your choice is good. If you ever upgrade to a K series CPU, and want to overclock, you might want a Z series chipset now.
  16. Agree
    Philcat101 reacted to Mira Yurizaki in What advice would you give for picking the right motherboard?   
    The biggest one: find what features you want and will use. Don't get a $400 board because it has some things you thought sounded nice and never end up using them.

    Well, I think just above your monitor pointed at your mouth (Maybe a bit higher and farther away from yourself) would yield good results.

    Philcat101 reacted to Zyndo in ssd troubles   
    empty your recycling bin. Your computer will keep those files until they're actually deleted in case you wanted to CTRL+Z your way out of whatever accidental button you pressed. then reset your computer (sometimes it wont update available space without a system reboot)

    So skylake is out of question. Go for the Haswell i5 OC route or the i7 non-OC.
