    Hotseff got a reaction from Kurios in Which monitor, decent for gaming, also has touchscreen?   
    @UnSimpleCurioso The ViewSonic TD2230 seems to be a good monitor for your needs. It's 22" 1920x1080 60Hz IPS Monitor with according to this review has a response time of 7ms and has good color accuracy. Also right now it can be found on Newegg for $250

    Hotseff got a reaction from Kaicer in What to do after changing cpu/ram/psu/motherboard?   
    @exon654 ^ but you should also while the USB drive is getting setup or at least before you install windows make sure everything is detected properly in the bios.

    Another problem is that Chrome OS relies on internet access for it to really have any function since most things would be in the chrome browser. So of course this would go against the fact that you wanted it to not have internet access

    @KingNets Check your drivers if Slottr isn't able to fix the issue since I've had a problem one time where the drivers for my RX 580 caused all games to feel like the game was lagging till I went to a previous Driver Version

    Hotseff got a reaction from LienusLateTips in 300 Dollar Vega 56 A Good Buy?   
    The only one that is $320 is the MSI with a blower style cooler and that one is the 2nd cheapest with the 3rd cheapest being the Asus Strix model for $380. Though if you don't care for DMC 5, RE 5, and the Division 2 I'd at that point go for an RTX 2060.

    if he was to go brand new i would rather pick up a 200ge for the vega 3 igpu
     
    but used exists, get a nice optiplex or other older machine, slap in something like a used 390x or 970 and have much more fun

    Hotseff reacted to BobVonBob in Upgrade path advice   
    If you're going for high refresh rate gaming then upgrade the CPU. If you're going for high resolution gaming upgrade the GPU.

    What resolution and refresh rate are you playing at?
     
    The 2700X will be better for streaming as it has 8c/16t and the 9700K only has 8c/8t.
     
    You could just get a 2600 for now and sell it later on and replace it with a Zen 2 chip that will have more cores and be on par (if not better) than what Intel currently has.. Making it a bad ass streaming and gaming machine..

    Hotseff reacted to Morgan MLGman in Dedicated Graphics w/ Ryzen 5 2600x?   
    Yes, this CPU doesn't have iGPU meaning that video output ports on the motherboard are useless with it. If you're looking for a Ryzen chip with integrated graphics, the best one currently is the R5 2400G.

    No ALL Ryzen chips are overclockable as long as they are paired with a B or X series board
