    This is the best youll get brand new and itll be low 1080p / mid 720p gaming, this is by literally sorting on cheapest price on pcpartpicker, so doesnt factor in the price from one retailer or shipping

    The difference would be marginal, most power from the screen would be used on resolution and brightness
     
    Seeing you have intel integrated graphics they have a control panel you can open to make a custom resolution and refresh rate

    not sure if it will apply to yours, but my arris router was doing the exact same thing pretty much to a t. turns out it was trying to install a firmware update over and over again and failing. called my provider and they forced the update and that fixed it completely. i would call your provider and see if your router needs any updates, long shot, but maybe.

    UWP, having the same games on Xbox and PC is amazing
     
    The PS3's cell processor was such a double edged sword, it was very powerful and alot of the later releases still had so much visual depth, but that was usually only for platform specific games, as it was so hard to optimise for

    DakotaWebber reacted to Felizeus in Input not Supported on bios with RX 5600 XT   
    Hello recently I acquired a Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Windforce OC, 6GB, DDR6, Rev 2.0 - GV-R56XTWF2OC-6GD, but to my surprise whenever I start the PC in the initial seconds where the bios logo should appear, the message " input not supported "and seconds later shows the normal windows screen try to enter the bios or install the video card drivers from 0 also generate the same problem, testing on my tv in the room the bios normally appears only on my monitor does not appear anyone Do you have any idea what that might be?
    I saw many other people experiencing the same problem with different monitors so it is not a specific problem of mine.

    Because Windows code is written for x86, and Linux runs on an x86 processor, so the main problem is that the Windows code can't be understood by Linux, but down under, it's written for the same type of processor
     
    The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 had PowerPC chips in them, which don't run on the x86 platform, so games written for them were fundamentally written for PowerPC, hence why an emulator is needed to translate PowerPC code into x86 code
     
    The Nintendo Switch runs an ARM chip, so theoretically you could run those games on a phone or tablet, but the main problem with this nowadays is DRM issues
     
    The Xbox 1 and PS4 actually do run on the x86 platform, but again, the problem is DRM.

    DakotaWebber got a reaction from lexusgamer05 in Programs like wine for console emulation   
    Old Console hardware had their own specific way of working, aka not the same processing architecture, instructions, as today, and then on top of that the way that the games were developed and stored on their also very specific code, theyre all programmed differently, and stored mediums such as cartridges, and the way it had to read those mediums
     
    Its not as simple as "just translate the code to run better", there essentially isnt "code" for the old consoles that can be easily translated for computers, then theres the optimisations for the old hardware, the way its compiled for that hardware,  emulation basically brute forces our hardware into creating that non standard environment to read the games developed for it
    Also, alot of emulators are developed and released for free
     
    Wine works because you can run Linux and Windows on the same machine using the same hardware and you dont need to 'emulate' the windows environment because the ability to run those programs already exists
     
    It's alot easier to just redevelop the game to work on newer hardware, which is what alot of companies are doing

    DakotaWebber reacted to Eigenvektor in Case fans used as ceiling fans???   
    A fan is a fan. The issue is that such a small fan moves a relatively small volume of air fairly quickly. Your typical ceiling fan moves a large volume of air rather slowly.
     
    I could imagine the noise being annoying and a small "stream" of fast moving air being somewhat uncomfortable. The rather slow moving air from a large ceiling fanis probably better in that regard.

    That simply wont work, Plus all the Wiring youd have to do, as well as the actual air movement is quite minimal. There are reasons this isnt a thing 😜

    DakotaWebber got a reaction from Eigenvektor in Case fans used as ceiling fans???   
    It can be done but  a ceiling fan will obviously be better, look at cfm (cubic feet per minute)
    ceiling fans from basic googling usually do around 4000-10000 cfm depending on model and size obviously
     
    a 120mm case fan would do about from 40-60
     
    but then you are also able to spread out the case fans to apread out the movement of the air in the room than just the one central area of a ceiling fan
     
    I would personally do 180mm fans as they would still look like case fans but actually be able to move more air
