  1. I guess if you are really concerned about mismatching monitors then yeah getting identical ones could make things easier. I personally could care less if my monitors look identical as I am more of a function over form type of person and I currently run a 25inch 360hz monitor for gaming and a 27inch 4k monitor for watching videos and such.
  2. First and foremost I would say there is no reason to get 2 identical 144hz monitors. Ideally I would have a gaming monitor and a content consumption monitor like maybe a nice big 4k monitor or something. As for productivity I would say yeah 2 separate screens generally is better for most people so I would lean to 2 separate monitors.
  3. In my experience if you run at 240hz even if you do have some screen tearing it will only be displayed for 1/240 of a second which is hardly noticeable so I just kept my refreshrate at 240hz regardless. Now I have a 360hz which is even less noticeable if there is any screen tearing issues when each image is only displayed for 1/360 of a second.
  4. Have you tried changing the power settings? Sometimes if the laptop isn't in the correct power settings this can be an issue. Also this has happened to my desktop before and I had to go into nvidia control panel and force it to prefer maximum performance in the 3d settings for the game that I was having the issue with.
  5. You can get the r7 3700x as a drop in replacement into your current motherboard https://se.pcpartpicker.com/product/QKJtt6/amd-ryzen-7-3700x-36-ghz-8-core-processor-100-100000071box You can buy one new in Sweden qt the following locations. Or alternatively you can opt for the r9 3900x which is 12 cores instead of the 8 cores you get the the 3700x. Both cpus are significantly faster than the 1700 and will allow you to hit much higher fps when you can upgrade your gpu in the future https://se.pcpartpicker.com/product/tLCD4D/amd-ryzen-9-3900x-36-ghz-12-core-processor-100-100000023box.

  6. I have owned a 1700 and a 1080ti before and at 1440p it will absolutely bottleneck in quite a few titles. I can't imagine a gpu that they can purchase that wouldn't lead into a pretty heavy bottleneck even at 1440p.
  7. As someone who has had a 1700 I would say that you probably want to upgrade your cpu before upgrading your gpu because often times the cpu will be the limiting factor especially qt 1080p and 1440p. If you are playing at 4k then I guess it doesn't matter though. The 1080 isn't a bad card and you can find cpus at msrp while gpus are not anywhere near their msrp.
  8. Tbh 4c/4t on pubg is just asking for a bad time. Granted pubg is just bad in general when it comes to optimizations so I would expect shuddering in it with your setup. As for fortnite I am a but surprised you would get such issues as I had thought it was fairly well optimized.
  9. Intel doesn't care about a max optimal speed like ryzen with 3600mhz being the most you want to go for infinity fabric reasons. Intel you can go 4000 mhz and it will be all good. Granted 3600mhz is generally the price to performance as you can get 3600mhz ram for similar prices to slower models. After 3600 mhz the amount you pay goes up quite a bit. Granted if you make money on what you do on your computer then maybe the extra price between 3600mhz and 4000 isn't a bid deal.
  10. Why spend that much when you can get better laptops new for that price https://www.newegg.com/eclipse-gray-asus-rog-strix-g15-g513qm-eb94-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834235881 I mean it seems like the razer laptop is overpriced tbh.
  11. They almost certainly meant 125hz and 165 hz. Honestly I read it that way and didn't even notice it until you pointed it out.
  12. Tbh I sorta find this verdict somewhat stupid. If the app is hosted on their app store then they should get a cut of the sales if that is how they are making revenue off of the app store and how they maintain the app store. Really I could only see an argument of making them allow a competing app store on IOS but I guess that likely won't happen.
  13. It totally depends on how the boost is setup. Most modern gpus have the boost being heavily tied to temperature. I mean if gpus didn't start down clocking before hitting a critical temperature threshold then that would be bad. I would imagine that the ps5 has something similar as it would likely be the easiest way to avoid having thermal shutdowns and other issues related to improper temperature control. Either that or they have the gpu at a fixed boost and created an overengineered cooling system to make sure that even at fringe cases the likelihood of thermal shutdown is small.
  14. They can't get info on how much they made off of info they sold that they shouldn't have had? Maybe it is more complicated then I think but surely they could come up with a way to make a rough estimate.
  15. You think it would be easy to just have the fine be equivalent to the money they made breaking the rule or somewhere close so that they realize that there is no incentive to break the law to begin with. Then even if it happens to small businesses it will only be an amount that is what they wouldn't have made had they broke the law to begin with making it totally fair.
