  1. Taking a closer look at the TUF B450 Pro Gaming it does seem like a great board for the money and I've heard it's quality is just as good. Though I might instead go with a 2700X, I planned on going for the 3700X but the price difference is much higher than the performance difference (the 3700X is over 40% more expensive for some 10-20% performance, aside from the lower power requirements) but in that case I'll get the 3700X once it's price drops so updating the BIOS won't be a problem for the TUF.
  2. I decided to upgrade my i5 6600 to a Ryzen 7 3700X, I'm more of an Asus fan so my first choice was the Asus TUF B450 Pro Gaming (I thought of getting the Strix one but it had a lot of negative reviews) but the MSI B450 Tomahawk is getting a lot of great reviews and recommendations. The MSI Tomahawk I assume all have an updated bios for the 3rd gen, but does the Asus TUF B450 also have a 3rd gen ready bios?
  3. Is it that bad? I looked up reviews and it didn't seem to be an issue, or at least wasn't mentioned. But overall I don't plan on overclocking the CPU, if that makes a difference for this mobo?
  4. Looking to upgrade the CPU/motherboard from an i5 6600 (non K) to a Ryzen 5 3600 (non X), I think the performance difference is worth the upgrade. Mostly need it for work (3D and 2D), gaming second. Firstly are B450 motherboards compatible with Ryzen 3rd gen without any BIOS updates and such and if all B450s do need an update would it be worth paying more for an X570? I'm looking to get a solid mobo / avoiding the lowest end since I plan on keeping it and hopefully upgrading to a future Ryzen generation, but I also have budget restrictions. Looking at the availability
  5. Let's say about 300 euros (/around $335), though prices here are noticeably higher than compared to the US, UK and most of western Europe. For example, the Dell P2418D as I see is about £190-200 (around 200 euros/$240) but here it's $320/€290/£265
  6. Looking for a new monitor, primarily for graphic intensive work (such as graphic design and sketching) so an IPS it seems. But due to budget constraints any "professional" monitors are out, though I was thinking of switching to 1440p from 1080p for a sharper image. The best 1440p monitor for the price seems to be the Dell P2418D, but I'm looking for opinions on it and possibly suggestions (sadly my choice is limited both due to the budget and availability). Of course, it would be also used for gaming, but color and overall image quality take priority for work rather than a fast di
  7. It's time to upgrade the monitor, though I'm not informed well enough on the matter. In short, I'm looking for a new monitor, mainly needed for doing graphic work (graphic design, illustration/sketching etc.) as well as 3D modelling. So far I figured I need a monitor with an IPS panel to get a better color quality, with that I've also learned that IPS panels tend to have a slightly slower response time and refresh rate as well as the common light bleed. Now to mention that I'm looking at more "budget" oriented options (let's say 200-300 euros, though prices here tend to be higher than their st
  8. The phone is a Xiaomi A2 Lite running 8.1 Oreo (Android One), I transferred the SD card from my previous phone (Nokia Lumia 630) and so far I haven't noticed that any files are missing, but when I connect the phone to my PC and choose the "Transfer Files" option it does show up on the PC but when I open the SD card (on PC) there are whole folders simply missing. I thought maybe it would only show the "default" folders that were created by the Lumia 630 and so I moved a folder to one of those "default" folders to test this (moved them on the phone not on PC) and nothing changed. Another thing I
  9. I should be getting a new phone very soon, I've done my research for the last 2-3 months and I've come to the conclusion that the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is the best choice for me and possibly for the price. It has everything I'd want, sadly it's not the "best" in any aspect but everything on it seems to be quite solid, unlike a lot of phones of which some have a great camera, CPU, display etc. but lack a few other features that are a must. There is one thing that I found a few different answers and I'm not sure which is true, that's about the A2 Lite's glass. Some sources say it's Gori
  10. I'd suggest at least 16GB of RAM or possibly 32GB (if you can squeeze it in there, just to be even safer for the future) and for this I'm sure there are more than enough people who will disagree, but unless you'll be getting an RTX2070 I wouldn't aim for Nvidia's previous generation simply due to their notoriety of "gimping" their previous generation once they release a new one. Another good choice (I'd personally do so) is to wait and see what AMD brings in the GPU market or if you don't want to wait the Vega 56 has become a great GPU and appears to be around 1070ti performance (and for a low
  11. I have, the phone is outstanding but in my country the cheapest one is around 350 euros which is quite above my budget sadly. Even ordering online I'd need to pay a customs fine and if the value of the package is over I think 100 euros (could be less, not sure) that's around 20-30% which would make it pointless. I'll be buying in a month or so, if it's price drops or I come across a good deal that's within my budget I surely will go for it, but I highly doubt it's price will come down enough.
  12. I posted a thread asking for advice on which phone I should choose, out of all the phones that fit my budget the 2 that seem to be the best for their price and that fit my phone needs are the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite and the Huawei Mate 10 Lite. They're quite close, I've heard and read more positive comments on the 2 than negative, but I still have to choose 1. So far the pros compared to each other: A2 Lite: - Better support for the slightly better(?) CPU (SD 625 vs Kirin 659) - Higher pixel density (432ppi vs 403ppi) - Bigger battery (4000mah vs 3340mah) (
  13. Ok so the time has finally come after almost 4 years to get a new phone and retire my Nokia Lumia 630. It served me well, but since Windows phone was (sadly) killed off it's users have been left in the dark. Now that I finally can afford a phone the hardest part comes, what do I choose? Of course, I still have a very tight budget so it's not that I have this enormous choice of phones, but still even at the budget prices there's a few which seem to be solid for the money. Now before the phones, my budget is around $200-$250 (about 200-230 euros since I'm in Europe). Ok so far I've
  14. Did you run them in dual channel? Or now in quad channel? Cause I've also been thinking that sometime if I want to further add more RAM would it be a bad idea to do so but if you're running 2x8 + 2x4 then it's awesome I might end up doing that later on.
  15. Ok so it's about 4-5 months after I built my new work and gaming machine, but when I first built it the only thing I held back at was the RAM. I got just 8GB, sure it held up but now I'm noticing that it's holding back the rest of the PC back and a lot. Now cause I'm tight with money (I have some other investments to make) and I'd like to deal with the lack of RAM a bit sooner I was thinking (here's the question) should I and more importantly would it be "bad" if I put a 4GB stick along with the 8GB stick I have? It would be the same, this one is a Hyper X Fury 2133mhz 8GB Black stick, the one
