  1. I think I might just go ahead and get that Asus laptop with the 2070 super. The laptop is not my main game station, I have a desktop. The laptop is simply for keeping me entertained at work.
  2. Well, another problem with 30 series laptops is people are going to snatch them up like candy, so, there's no guarantee I'm going to be able to get one since everyone and their dog is waiting for them. So I actually have a better chance of scoring a 20 series laptop now than a 30 series.
  3. Do I need to buy one right now? Not really, but my laptop is old, and I'm worried it might be dying. I got it back in 2016. It has a I7-4XXX and a 970M, so any upgrade I get is going to be a huge improvement over that. I'm not really worried about it being out of date either, because all computer hardware is "out of date" within a few months of release. Something better is always around the corner. Concerning the 17 inches, yes. I want nothing less than 17 inches. I can't stand small screens. As for what I'm using for, mostly gaming with some netflix/youtube/video watching. I
  4. Amazon.com: ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 Gaming Laptop, 17.3” 300Hz FHD IPS Type, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super, Intel Core i7-10875H, 16GB DDR4, 1TB PCIe SSD, Per-Key RGB Keyboard, Wi-Fi 6, Windows 10, G732LWS-DS76: Computers & Accessories What about this laptop? I would prefer 32 gigs (As I tend to mod my games a lot), but that's easily fixed by buying a ram stick. Looking at the reviews of the sellers, seems the best seller would be CE Showroom.
  5. Oh, I couldn't find any that were for sale. As for why intel, just a personal preference. Also, not to thrilled about the 15 inch size. I don't want anything less than 17 inches. Also, I would prefer 1080P over 4K for more FPS.
  6. I'm not worried about 30 series GPUs. I'm fine getting a 20 series laptop, and the 30 series aren't due for at least a month or two, possibly 3. As for AMD, I prefer Intel. I realize AMD is better right now, but I would like to stick with what I know. Amazon.com: CUK ROG Strix Scar 17 G732LWS by ASUS 17 Inch Gaming Notebook (Intel Core i7, 32GB RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB, 17.3" FHD 300Hz IPS, Windows 10 Home) Gamer Laptop Computer: Computers & Accessories What about this one? Same laptop but with I7.
  7. I was looking around for new laptops and I found this one: ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 - 17.3" 300Hz - GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER - Intel Core i9-10980HK - 32GB DDR4 - 1TB SSD - Per-Key RGB KB - Win10 Pro - Gaming Laptop (G732LWS-XS98) - Newegg.com I'm thinking about getting it but a review has me hesitant. The reviewer said the CPU is throttled to 77% out of the box. Is this something I should worry about? I haven't heard any reviewers mentioning the throttle on Youtube, so I'm wondering if it was a problem with that buyer's unit. As for what I'll be using it for, mostly gaming and internet
  8. Okay, thanks. I have a 1080 and used the Daisy Chained cable to save on using another cable. Haven't had a problem with it, but I'll go the recommended route and use 3 cables.
  9. I'm looking to upgrade to the 3080 or 3090 when ASUS comes out with their Strix card. I've seen from previews that it will have 3 8-pin power connectors. My question is, will I be able to use my power supplies 8-pin to 8-pin + 6+2-Pin as well as a regular 8-pin for the third connection, or will I need to use 3 8-pins?

  10. Will I need to buy two for each computer or can this run them fine by itself? Also, will it work if the computers are connected to it through a power strip with an extension cord?
  11. So, I've been meaning to get a UPS, but I haven't done it due to laziness and also lack of money. I now have some money to spend. The reason I'm getting a UPS is that storm season in Texas is bad, and my brother was playing his computer the other day when the power went out. When he started his computer after the storm was away and power was back, his computer was acting up. After a hard reset it started working fine, thank God. This has scared me a bit, so I'm planning on getting a UPS so that we have time to shut down the computers in the event of a power outage. Keep in mind, we do normally
  12. Do you have a recommended video which shows what to do? Also, will using the disk not work, or is it recommended to use a USB Stick? Also, if I back up Program files and program files (x86) will that safe the old drivers?
  13. Okay, thank. This may be a stupid question, but how do I clean install? I do have the disk and product key, but when I had my computer built, I was too nervous about building it myself, the guy used his own disk/usb drive I believe, but used my key. Will that be a problem?
  14. If I unplug everything but my OS SSD, and then do a clean install, then replug everything, will that work?
