  1. So if I get a pcie adapter will I be unable to use the bluetooth? None of those adapters seem to have usb connections
  2. Sorry, I meant that my intel chip has bluetooth built in. What it seems like is that you can just plug it into an E key slot and use both wifi 6 and bluetooth 5.0. Is that not the case with an adapter?
  3. Just noticed the ship date is april 13th so that kinda sucks. Gonna try and find another one of the same kind. What is the usb cable for?
  4. I looked around a bit and didn't find any good pci adapters but this one looks promising. Will this work? I've got the intel chip with an E key and pretty sure I have M key on my mobo. It also has bluetooth included in the wifi chip https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000274478342.html?src=google&albch=shopping&acnt=708-803-3821&isdl=y&slnk=&plac=&mtctp=&albbt=Google_7_shopping&aff_platform=google&aff_short_key=UneMJZVf&&albagn=888888&isSmbAutoCall=false&needSmbHouyi=false&albcp=1582410664&albag=59754279756&trgt=74361285087
  5. So I bought a wifi adapter (intel ax200 kit) and it doesn't fit in my m.2 slot. It is a different key type and the screw hole doesn't line up. I waited too long to send it back and can't return it now. Can I buy an adapter for it?

  7. Am I unaware of something that has happened lately? Before the new rtx 30 series came out GPU prices were looking somewhat reasonable and I was talking with someone on here about getting a 1660 or 2060S for around 200$. I just looked today because I am finally fed up with my pc performance and saw around 400$ for 2060 and 1660. WTF? Am I missing something?
  8. I've actually been wanting to OC for a while. Are there any good videos you'd reccomend? I've found a few that make it seem super difficult and want you to download a bunch of software
  9. Is there such a thing as 1440p 60hz? Because I don't mind 60hz I just might want a bit higher resolution later on. I still get decent fps in games, I just get lots of stutter because of low VRAM and RAM. So I am definitely getting another stick of RAM, and definitelty a new card. Will the i5 I have still keep up with a rtx 2070?
  10. Well my current monitor is an older 1080p 60hz acer monitor. That is honestly fine with me for now, but I may eventually go up to 1440p at a higher refresh rate

Budget (including currency): Country: Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): So I am planning on buying the rtx 3070 when it releases. If I just pop in the new card when I get it, I'll probably have some bottleneck, so I'll need a new CPU, and probably a new PSU as well. Depending on the CPU i might need a new mobo as well. What would be a good CPU to pair with th
  12. Well that pretty much makes it a whole new system if I go the 3070. I would need a new CPU, new PSU, and new MOBO (if I went with comet lake or AMD). It wouldn't make much sense to stick with LGA 1151 because its already out of date. I could also go a more budget route I suppose and get a 1660 Super, and maybe keep my CPU. Would I still get bottleneck that way? Is the 7600k still a decent processor that can run games at high settings?
  13. Budget (including currency): 1000$ Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Pretty much any fps game Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): My current pc build is starting to feel a bit dated. My RAM and VRAM are struggling to keep up, I'm running out of HDD and SSD space, and my CPU sometimes is at an extremely high usage in games. I'm feeling ready to upgrade especially since I just got a new
  14. So my PC is starting to fall behind after about 3 years of using it. I get lots of stuttering in my games and I am not sure what is causing it. I have 8gb of RAM and a gtx 1060 3gb with an i5-7600k (3.8ghz). I can still run medium-high settings with good fps but I always get really bad stutter every once in a while. Its hard to tell what the main cause is. In Apex legends it looks like the gpu because it always runs near 100%. In other games I seem to be almost using all 3gb of my VRAM, in lots of other games I almost always am using 7.8 gb of RAM. In borderlands 3 my CPU is at 100
  15. So I just found a schiit magni 3 on closeout for 60$. The new magni 3+ is 40$ more. Is there a big difference between the two? Are the power output stats the same? Thanks.
