  1. Status Update replaced the 250gb NVME with a 500gb NMVE cloned the original disk on the new disk, created another partition of 250go Installed Win10 on it The new Windows was automatically Win10pro and was already activated I now have two partition on Windows Boot manager, the win10pro for work and another win10pro personal with all my google, facebook and other personal stuff... and my game
  2. I grabbed from work an old Thinkpad T420 computer with win7pro activated, It doesn't have the COA certificate on it I removed the mechanical hard disk and started a clean install with Win10 on a blank SSD I was hoping that the activation would carry over on Microsoft site but it did not work Before I go to extreme measures, is there any way to extract the activation key from the old hdd? If I put back the old mechanical HDD, will the upgrade to windows10 need the COA?
  3. I have a work Thinkpad computer with a 9th gen I7 cpu and a T2000 Quadro gpu running windows10 pro I want to install Windows 10 home on a second drive and dual boot on my personal time to do personal stuff (light gaming, facebook, youtube etc) What kind of boot manager will work for windows10 home an windows 10 pro? Can I keep my personal drive private (invisible from my work drive) or even better, keep both drives from seeing each other? If I install windows10 home on this laptop do I need to purchase a license of the COA number is burne
  4. I am looking at these tho computer https://www.msi.com/news/detail/93e37ed292096ae7d6f59c5d5d854dd9?sf237592901=1 https://www.dell.com/en-ca/shop/dell-laptops/new-dell-g5-15-se-gaming-laptop/spd/g-series-15-5505-laptop#configurations_section www.dell.com › dell-laptops › spd New Dell G5 15 SE Gaming Laptop
  5. The Ryzen 2400g is a strange beast. It is fine in Windows 10 but it needed a kernel upgrade for 18.04. I did the automatic upgrade to Xubuntu 20.04. After upgrade, I started to get interface hang. Xubuntu already has a kernel compatible with the Ryzen 2400g I upgraded the Asrock ITX B450 to the latest BIOS compatible with the Ryzen 2400g I upgraded to the latest stable kernel. I still have a lot of troubleshooting to do on the system
  6. Opinion needed: I want to purchase a middle weight gaming laptop. I am afraid that the rx5600m will have compatibility issues and sub par driver optimisation. On the plus side for the Red Team: The Dell G5SE already is close to Rtx2060 performance and I am expecting the MSI Alpha to be at par with the 2060 because of better thermal design. I don't see using raytracing on a mobile 2060 so the Nvidia 1660ti looks like the contender on the green side and the 2070 would be the choice if I want to go with raytracing option. The 5600 is cheaper than the 1660t
  7. It looks like we might purchase a few 3d modeling license at work and I am looking to build the cheapest station possible for Solidwork or equivalent. We will need to do modeling and cad, no render, maybe a little FEA (to keep engineer happy) I was looking at new computer and it is too expensive However we can purchase used HP and Dell Desktop from a local computer refurbisher / recycler Workstation class pc are not really happening, I asked a few computer refurbisher and they do not get those and when they do they are clapped out. Would it be
  8. My current HTPC is obsolete and had problem reddening FHD content for playback. (old Dell Optiplex) I have built a NAS out of the scrap bin; it is old and noisy and it doesn't qualify for the «LTT Storage Rankings» So I want to build a new NAS but I would like to use common parts and I would lake the computer to be usable as an HTPC in my living room. Software: Linux (Xubuntu 18.04) with Kodi for the interface and Webmin on top of Madm for the server administration. Hardware: 1 system drive and 6 data drives m

  10. Looking for suggestion and comments. Currently running a FX-6300 with a HD7770 with a 500W and only 1x6pin PCI-e connector My primary goal is to improve my framerate in Wow Legion since was already having issues in WOD in 1680x1050 and the framerate took a drop in Legion My target is 60fps average with the minimum framerate not lower than 30fps with graphics settings at 8/10 and moderate AA Currently I can't achieve that target even with lowered graphics settings (Graphics 7/10, avg 52fps, lowest 35fps with CMAA on) . Currently my CPU is not a bottleneck
  11. The real question are: What are the games that you want to run? What is the detail level? What is the resolution? what is the ma You are in a difficult position. The FM2+ platform is obsolete for gaming. In my opinion, you have 3 choices: Keep the FM2+ motherboard, purchase an A10 APU and purchase a discrete graphic card like a R7 360. The APU and the Discrete card will work together However, you NEED fast memory (2100 mhz ) https://community.amd.com/thread/182984 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv57qDXpEPU Kee
  12. If you look at the specifications on Corsair's site, you can see the max current draw on each rails that your power supply can provide : 20A for the 5V, 3,3V 37.4A for the 12V http://www.corsair.com/en/cx-series-cx450m-450-watt-80-plus-bronze-certified-modular-atx-psu-jp According to Tom Hardware, the Radeon Rx480 will need: 7,6A + 5,9A so your PSU will have no problem. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-radeon-rx-480-polaris-power-fix,4668.html However, my Coolermaster 500W is actually rated lower on the 12V rail at 2 x 18V but it will
  13. Post a comment below telling us what graphics card you're using in your rig and why you want an upgrade to AMD's Polaris lineup. The two winners will be selected at random, so no, the content of your comment doesn't REALLY matter, but this is more fun than seeing 800 posts of "I want it" or "gibe nao pls." There is a 7770 in my FX-6300 computer but when a play wow in 1080, it is struggling at the worst possible time. Why Polaris: Form factor will fit my Thermaltake Lanbox It is compatible with my power supply My motherboard is a 78LMT-USB3 and I have see at least
