  1. Is there any kind of dock or adapter that allows for that connection?
  2. I've heard thunderbolt 3 and usb 3.1 (C) are interchangeable. Would that work? Or is there an external thunderbolt dock I can use?
  3. My post says I already have a 2070 super at home. Not to mention students can get all there stuff done and still have time to relax sometimes! Just depends on the person workload and college. Still though not necessarily what I was asking. I just want to know if it will work with my laptop.
  4. Not necessarily what I was asking. I see saying USB-C works with it. And if you have an external thunderbolt doc that can work as well. So what's the deal

  6. Hi all, I have a Lenovo Ideapad with 8gb DDR4 and a 10th gen i5. Pretty decent stuff for gaming. Problem is, it only has Intel HD graphics. I have a beautiful rig with a 2070 Super at home, but it's a pain taking my PC setup with me to college. For some reason, I have seen back and forth information on what kinds of laptops can actually be compatible with an e-GPU. My laptop has a USB-C port, so is that good enough? Does it have to be a certain kind of port? If so, what kind of port do I need to be able to use an external GPU?
  7. Should I go for a 1080 Ti or a 2070 Super instead of a 1070 SLI do you think? @ All
  8. I have not checked, actually, no. I mainly play BF1/5 and the Battlefronts, as well as Fortnite, the new star wars game, and some lighter titles.
  9. Even still, an RTX 2080 TI is over $1100. Even if this is 5% slower in some games, or 10% or even matches/exceeds in some games which I have seen, isn't that value absolutely insane?
  10. Hi all, I have just learned that two GTX 1070's can match a RTX 2080 Ti... For a LOT cheaper if you get them refurbished or used. They're going for like $230 on Ebay and even $260 for Founders Cards. I recently recieved a DOA Rx 5700XT and thought I'd get an nVidia card after only running AMD and then I made this discovery. My question: Is a 750 W Silverstone 80+ Gold enough power for non-OC'd Gtx 1070 SLI? Plus a Ryzen 5 3600X. Secondary questions: Is it a good idea to do a 1070 SLI? Are there games that can't use both GPUS? If so will it revert to using the top card?
  11. It's not listed anywhere. When we try to install the driver, it says it can't be installed because no AMD graphics cards are detected in the system.
  12. Hi all. I have a new build and my computer isn't detecting my 5700XT at all. My specs: Mobo: Asus ROG Strix B450M CPU: Ryzen 5 3600x RAM: 2x8 (16) GB 3000MHZ ddr4 2tb + 500gb HDD + 512 SSD Silverstone 750W 80+ Non-modular When I turn on the computer with the 5700xt plugged in and powered on, every light and fan turns on in the computer but I have no signal and no output to my monitor. This is with no drivers installed, for anything except a newest flash update of the Bios. When I unplug that card and throw in an old GTX 670, it boots up perfec
  13. Hi all, I am currently dealing with a failing/broken wifi card (new one will be here in a couple days). It keeps / kept disconnecting from the dual-band signal our router is giving off, sometimes after 30 seconds, sometimes 10 minutes, or 4 hours. No rhyme or reason. I put on my hotspot through my phone (samsung note 8) and it connected immediately, got 20 ping, and 100 mbs down. I know for a fact that my data, even though its 4G LTE, puts out about a 5 down 2 up strength signal to any device I usually connect it to. My question: If my note 8 is on wifi, and
  14. Oh, sweet. I think I'm all set then. Thank you very very much
  15. It only requires two but it needs a total of 16 pins so hopefully the PSU will have enough pins on the PCIe connectors regardless of whether or not its a single block of 8 or two of 4 or any combination
  16. So will it have a combination that will allow me to feed 2 8 pins to my gpu? Sorry I can't really tell the difference between connector to connector
  17. I had the wrong PSU listed by accident. I bought a Silverstone SST-ET750-G not the EVGA one
  18. Sorry I used the wrong PSU in the partspicker list. I thought I changed but it reverted somehow. I bought a Silverstone SST-ET750-G 750w 80+ gold non-modular

  20. Let me back up a little bit here. I have a 500GB SSD in my late 2009 27" iMac. It worked fine for a year. Decided to sell it, so I wiped the machine by going into disk utility and deleting the drive + erasing all it's data. I clicked re-install OS, downloaded it, and at the end it gave me an error saying "Could not create a preboot volume for APFS install." So I went to this tutorial where you restart, boot back into utility, and delete basically everything before reinstalling it. Here is my issue: after having done this, no hard drive (in this case SSD) shows up, just the base OSX thing
  21. Thanks for the entertaining and informative debate guys. I settled for the CX550M.
  22. Does this 500w CX500 have two six pins for a GTX 670? https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Bronze-Certified-Non-Modular-CP-9020120-NA/dp/B0092ML0MY/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8&th=1
  23. Why / how is it crap? Can you provide a link to the Cx550m
  24. This rosewill one should still be good though, right? I have a locked CPU and it's not very power hungry. I'm not looking to OC. I'm only upgrading from my arc 450 because I need another 6 pin. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KJMD272/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?th=1&tag=linus21-20
