    Totalimus got a reaction from Tristerin in I want a Mac   
    For an Apple laptop, you'll have to spend at least 4 times as much to get somewhat a worthy product.
    For £250 you can buy the empty apple box.

    Loading = reading = you read from where the data is stored at speed that the storage device is capable of.
    You can't do what you described.

    Totalimus got a reaction from Over in I'm planning to build this, what do you think?   
    Why not go for the latest CPU generation? i7-10700k (basically i9-9900k) costs the same (360 euros in my country at least) and has additional 8 threads.
    230 euros will also be plenty to find you a good Z490 motherboard, check this video for recommendations:
     
    Also don't forget you can buy Windows 10 Pro OEM (means it will be tied to your motherboard) keys for 5$ off ebay.
    Other than that, seems fine, maybe try to find 3200MHz C16 (or better) RAM? Seems to be a tad better than 3000MHz C15 from what I've found in google.
    Choose the same parts in https://pcpartpicker.com/ to see if there are any incompatibilities.

    Totalimus got a reaction from lexusgamer05 in Use my gpu in a monitor connected to my motherboard?   
    I'm a bit confused by your question, but you need your monitor connected to the graphics card in order to use it for frame rendering while playing games.
    Also, your CPU does have integrated graphics.
    I suggest you connect your graphics card again, open nvidia control panel -> change resolution and check if your settings are like mine:

    Totalimus got a reaction from HadesLV in 500 euro 1440p gaming monitor   
    Latvian myself. Bought LG 27GL850 2 days ago from RD Electronics for 459 euros (they increased the price to 500 now, demand must be high). Love it both in terms of picture quality and game responsiveness. Doesn't come color-calibrated that well from the start though, so you would have to play with the settings or find a separate color calibrator to borrow.
     
    EDIT: Checked out SolarNova's recommendation and VG27AQ does seem like it could be a better choice if you can find it for the same price or cheaper. I checked it out on salidzini (for non Latvians, it's a price comparing website across all stores here) and only dateks seems like a good store to get it from (but in case of bad panel lottery, you'd want to RMA it and trying to do it with these internet stores could give you a bad headache, maybe dateks is okay though, I do not know). RDVeikals offers you to return it no questions asked within the first two weeks so I chose them.
     
    EDIT V2: If you don't care about ergonomics / have a vesa mount, you could look at VX2758-2KP-MHD which costs 352 euros @ RDVeikals, also a great monitor.

    Isn't the point of getting both monitors rather than reading reviews & recommendations on each one before buying is that you can answer that question yourself?

    Totalimus reacted to Orangeator in LG G6 - how long will it receive updates?   
    The G6 will without a doubt in my mind receive OS updates for at least 2 more years. More likely 3 years.

    Totalimus reacted to DocSwag in LG G6 - how long will it receive updates?   
    There are a few others that support their phones for two years, such as HTC and I believe Samsung. But on time and 100% guaranteed is mainly just Google.
     
    What you can always do though is flash a custom ROM.

    Totalimus reacted to [REDACTED] in LG G6 - how long will it receive updates?   
    I can't say what LG's support would be like but if you went the rom route, you should have community support for as long as a developer supports it (Usually at least 2-3 years or more for popular devices)

    Totalimus got a reaction from Pendragon in 12/13 inch laptop recommendations.   
    Hello, I've been studying in university since september 2016 and had to get a laptop for myself that I could use on daily basis since the university is located in a different city.
    At that time, my thinking was I need 15.6 inch screen and nothing else matters, because I couldn't imagine myself working on anything smaller but well...times change.
    I have found it's pretty uncomfortable to carry around somewhat big laptop with me at all times. It's HP ProBook 650 G1 if anyone's wondering.
    I am looking for portability, light weight and decent specs.
     
    So I would be really thankful if someone could recommend a 12 or 13 inch laptop with 1080p resolution that has at least i5 cpu, preferably 8GB of RAM or at least the option to ugprade it from 4GB to 8GB down the road. SSD is not necessary, I can buy one later.
    My budget is 600$.
     
    I had my eyes on lenovo thinkpad x250 (love their estethics) but the 1080p models cost quite the buck.

    Totalimus reacted to Rothfox in GTX 1070 Sudden Loss of Frame Rates   
    Hey there OP, these issues are hard to pinpoint. but i have had similar performance issues where in some games my fps has eather gradualy decreased over time (from when i started the game) to unplayable fps. this fixed itself after countless months with updates to different components. and ive gone trough countless tests to what might have caused it. 
    i do however have a few suggestions: What Operating system do you use, IF Windows 10. try to see if going backwards in OS works. there are still many cases where the OS
    is at fault.
    do a test of your ram with memtest86 to rule oute borked ram.
    check if your system: gpu/cpu are down throtteling due to termal issues.
    check if ALL your drivers are up to date, Or at there most stabile version.
    reset all OC's to standard clocks, but turn everything in Nvidia Control panel to performance, and power settings of cpu to 100% to rule out cpu bottleneck.
    there are alot more things to test. but these would be some of the easyest. 

    id wait a few days/weeks and see if new drivers resolve it. if nothing helps, Rma the card and see if the next one works. best of luck!

    Totalimus got a reaction from A/C in Wich gpu   
    He said he made a typo and meant to say he is thinking about getting a GTX 980 Ti not a GTX 980.
    In that case it's not too bad of a deal. It just kinda sucks that for the same money you should be able to get a GTX 1070.
    If you have the patience then wait until the price for 1070 stabilizes.
     
    I can get Gigabye G1/EVGA GTX 1070 in my country for 500 euros and cheapest GTX 980 Ti is 455 euros. I am trying to get a used 980 Ti for 400 euros or else I won't buy one because as I said previously it sucks to pay the same amount of money for an older card when you can buy a newer one. So I would wait if I was you.
