  1. I doubt it, usually there's very little difference, if any, so it isn't worth the extra money spent on the 750W. The PSU in OP's pcpartpicker list is fine as it is. Getting a 750W PSU will make little to no difference in everything, not just power efficiency.
  2. I'd recommend a 3600 instead if you can get it. If not, both are fine. I don't know exactly how well the 3500X performs but if it's similar to the 3600 I'd recommend it over the 2700X.
  3. Dell AT102 w/ Alps SKCM Black switches
  4. This is normal now. I'm in the UK, all the items I've ordered from other countries have sat in British customs for weeks, even months. Royal Mail is a mess at the moment. Items take way longer to move than they did before. Same goes for every parcel I've sent to other countries during this pandemic. Unfortunately the only thing you can do is wait, the seller can't make it go any faster and Royal Mail can't either (assuming the seller shipped using their services)
  5. Depends on the switch. If you're comparing blue vs blue then Gateron IMO. Their switches feel better, sound better and seem to be better quality than the Outemu Blues I've used. Feel and sound are subjective though so I'd recommend trying a few keyboards first to see what kind of switches you like. I prefer Gaterons over Outemus but you may prefer Outemus over Gaterons.
  6. I wasn't expecting Ofcom to do this but I'm glad they have. I don't understand why other networks still lock phones, 3 have been doing this for years..
  7. I don't see any benefits from selling your desktop and buying a gaming laptop. They're heavy, loud and just a pain to travel with. To be honest, I don't see why you'd want to sell the desktop for any laptop. There really isn't any point in doing this, just keep your desktop.
  8. Yes. It's not. 38c is a very good temperature. As long as you're not going over 90c there's no problem.
  9. IMO it's unfortunate Office 2010 is EOL but it was going to be discontinued eventually. To be honest, I'm surprised it's been supported for so long. I expected Microsoft to drop support at the same time as Windows 7. I can't remember having updates on Office 2010, so I'm not sure what difference this will make.
  10. My worst onosecond was when I realised I pocket dialled the police.
  11. Nothing happens when I place it upside down. I cleaned my desk, mouse pad and mouse. So far so good, it hasn't happened (yet). If it does I'm going to format my drives and reinstall windows just in case it's being caused by malware.
