  1. That is not the point of my post. “but I mainly want to get better image quality and was thereforelooking at IPS panels.”
  2. I am definitely not a professional player, and moved away from the semi-pro scene a couple years ago now. That being said I cannot ignore my competitive nature even though I stopped participating in tournaments and going to LANs. That is why I do not want to get a monitor that is worse than my current one in terms of response time/blur/etc. Improvements are welcome, better image quality and similar performance on other aspects is fine, but better image quality and worse performance is a no-go for me. My main objective is better (1080p) image quality without worsening my g
  3. Hello, I am an owner of a XG2401 (144Hz TN) and I’m in the market for a new display. I wouldn’t mind getting a better gaming experience in high-fps games (eg Rocket League, Valorant, CS:GO, ...) but I mainly want to get better image quality and was therefore looking at IPS panels. Finding a 240Hz IPS panel with good reviews seemed to be the best of both worlds, but I am concerned that it sounds too good to be true. While I would like to get better image quality, I am not willing to compromise on ghosting/blur/response time. Is this monitor for me or sh
  4. There is no difference other than price. The features of the X570 can’t be made use of in an ITX board.
  5. What CPU are you planning to use? Are you overclocking? For example, it’s a non-oc’d ryzen 5 there’s no point in getting slightly better VRMs but less features
  6. RGB always on can be normal, the fans are weird... Anyhow, you could try checking in BIOS how the motherboard handles the rgb when the PC shutdowns. Usually there is an option to keep it on or turn it off with the PC. It might affect the fans too in your case, but I’m not sure since they usually turn off.
  7. The temperatures are fine, but I would consider putting the more power hungry card in the bottom slot for the extra air.
  8. No, not really. Both could also support 144Hz, but depends on the implementation and if the monitor is 144Hz capable.
  9. Learn the basics and then practice by working on your own projects, try to find something you wish it would be automated and create a program for it. You will start facing challenges on how to do x which is part of achieving y, find resources and eventually you will take in more and more knowledge. There is no beginner to master guide for anything. Being a master means having implicit/tacit knowledge. Guides offer you explicit knowledge, which only helps to a certain extent.
  10. Have you tried downloading an update version of the bios and flashing it? Or doing a CMOS reset?
  11. What’s inside? From the pic I can see a CPU cooler and no GPU. I would never buy a pc without knowing its parts.
  12. You should only be concerned about temps and performance, not usage.
  13. Can't you just put both routers in access point mode? (without chaining them, connect both to the modem directly)
