  1. Sell the GT 730 if you can. Your integrated graphics is on par, possibly even better, than the GT 730. The only reason to have it is you need extra monitor outputs.
  2. You want V-Sync enabled on the driver level via Nvidia Control Panel, but turn it off in game. Keep the refresh rate at 240hz, the card will lower it on its own.
  3. Rubber banding is when you snap back and forth in an online game as it's trying to track your position, usually caused by a poor connection. As for the OP, I don't play CSGO or know enough about it to answer. Just for clarity though, what games besides CSGO does this happen in?
  4. Not all m.2 slots support SATA drives. You have one that supports that, and it shares lanes with the physical SATA ports. That's not unusual either. Your chipset only has a certain number of lanes, and they're pre-divided up by the manufacturer. It's not "use as needed".
  5. Your graphics card should support 4 displays simultaneously, so this shouldn't be an issue. I would suggest contacting the manufacturer for a replacement. If the port doesn't even work when only one monitor is connected, then it's almost definitely busted and not just a driver issue. Additionally, they're all only 1080p so it shouldn't be a bandwidth issue since all ports are at least HDMI 2.0. PS: Please make sure to quote or tag next time, it's the only way I could receive a notification.
  6. They're both technically not great deals, but if you need a GPU soon then the 3060 Ti is definitely the better deal. The 3060 isn't even particularly good at MSRP.
  7. Just for clarification, could you try plugging in just one monitor into a working port, and then moving the to the non working port? Also, how many monitors do you have, and what are their resolutions and refresh rates?
  8. What is it you're asking? I don't even know why so many people are eager for the change.
  9. There are a lot of different variations of coax cables (it's literally over a 100 year old design), but there aren't clear generations. There are different standards for different situations (such as outside and inside). Internet speeds typically aren't anywhere near fast enough for it to be an issue though. The reason we need to update ethernet cables much more regularly is because it can be a bottleneck to transferring things within the network.
  10. What kind of cores? I'm obviously talking about specifically x86 architecture. I assume you have an ARM CPU, and that's comparing apples to...peanuts. Low power high efficiency cores are hardly the same thing.
  11. For a laptop I don't recommend anything over 4 cores. There's a good reason even a 6 core laptop is common. They're just bad ideas. You can't lug around enough cooling. I have trouble cooling my quad core. To answer your other question, there are a ton of cases where more cores is the same speed or even slower than fewer. Bigger number doesn't mean better. We need to know what you're trying to do.
  12. You're asking the impossible, at least by today's standards. More cores means more power, which means more heat. Fewer cores but with higher power means even more heat than that. The only way to get rid of that heat is to have sufficient cooling. This is why high end laptops are all basically shit. Get a good desktop and a mid range laptop for your portable needs.
  13. That's not what it says. It says that update specifically was mostly bug fixes. But anyway, your question has been answered.
  14. This isn't true. It's been true for Intel so far, but definitely not for Ryzen systems. There's also no guarantee that such a thing couldn't happen with an Intel system. Additionally, you really shouldn't upgrade your BIOS unless you're having problems. It's an unnecessary risk. While it's slim, a power failure during an upgrade can permanently brick the motherboard. @COROS1V Replace the CPU, and if you need an upgrade it won't boot. Then just put the old one back in to boot it and do an upgrade. Generally a BIOS upgrade shouldn't be needed for same series CPU's.
