  1. Hi guys, I picked up a Lenovo Legion 5 with an R7 5800U and RTX 3070 to replace my 5 year old desktop. I do wish to reuse my monitors along with all the other peripherals that I've used with my desktop: - Keyboard --> USB A - Mouse --> USB A - Microphone --> USB A - Camera --> USB A - Dualsense --> USB A - Headphones --> 3.5mm audio - Monitor 1 --> DP/HDMI - Monitor 2 --> DP/HDMI I'm looking into picking up a dock for it, however I'm wondering whether my two monitors will work over the single USB C connection to the laptop sinc
  2. Cheers. I had a look at the ZBook Create last night which is £3000, way out of budget. XPS is looking like the best option here
  3. Hey all, Looking for some advice here. I'm planning to buy a laptop for college - mechanical engineering. I plan to take my PC, but I also plan to get a laptop for when I'm mobile. I've not bought a laptop since 2013 so wondering where I should start? The laptop needs to be able to run Inventor Pro, AutoCAD, Fusion 360 (not that hard to run anyway), Maya, Rhino etc. Ideally with a dedicated GPU and a decent processor. Maybe a bit of Rocket League every once in a while but gaming is absolutely not the core focus - that's what my PC is for. Bu
  4. No, my motherboard does not support overclocking. In regards to the bottlenecking, I've constantly seen my CPU reaching full load whilst the GPU sits in the 30% range in titles such as GTAV and Deus Ex Mankind Divided. So it'd be better just outright buying a new CPU/Mobo combo?
  5. I've been running an i5 6400 since I built my PC and run it along side a 1060 6GB. I run all my games at 1080p and do a lot of CAD. I don't plan to buy an entirely new PC until DDR5 RAM and AMD releases their 5nm CPUs since I don't think it's worth buying a new PC in the current climate. The weakest part of my PC, the CPU, could do with an upgrade though. I've found an i7 7700k for £175. Would it be worth it? This way it's not too expensive and I can also keep my same motherboard and cooler. Thanks!
  6. Yeah, I just give prices in USD since it's pretty universal. I'm going to get a 7700k used. Easy job and should be good.
  7. I'm in the market for a new CPU. Currently rocking an i5 6400 with 1060 6GB. My GPU is bottlenecked massively by my CPU. My current motherboard only supports Kaby Lake and Skylake. Prices for the i7 7700, used, are extrodinarily high right now, around $250 USD. I'm sure a Ryzen and a new motherboard would be cheaper as well as outperform it. What suggestions do you guys have?

  8. Thanks! Yeah I'm trying to keep costs down, so I'd probably keep my motherboard.
  9. I built my current PC back in 2016 and have slowly been upgrading it since. Here are the current specs: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i5-6400 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler ARCTIC Freezer 34 eSports DUO CPU Cooler Motherboard Asus H170 PRO GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Memory Kingston Hyper
  10. Realtek drivers. Nope, doesn't seem to have auto impedence.
  11. 8/100 on the Windows volume setting. Sorry, should have been clearer.
