  1. Oh okay so you would suggest maybe getting an internal hdd and then regularly backing up onto external hard drive(s)? Sorry just wanna make sure I'm understanding lol. And yeah it's just for recording/storage. When it comes to editing, I'll transfer the footage I need to a fast SSD.
  2. I have a NVMe SSD as my C drive with Premiere Pro on it. I have some SSDs that I store my games on. But I am looking for some hefty storage to record/store gameplay on. I am thinking 8-10 TB. And I am considering doubling the storage and mirroring the drives. In case of a failure, I don't want to lose all the footage. So maybe 16-20 TB in total? Any suggestions on hard drives? Are SSDs even a reasonable option for this much storage? My budget is kinda flexible, but I like getting value for my money and don't like throwing money into the ocean for extra performan
  3. Thank you! Google didn't have answers for me this time.
  4. I know the RTX 3080, 3080 Ti, and 3090 all have LED lighting (Founder's Edition). I also know the RTX 3070 Founder's Edition does NOT have LED lighting. But does the RTX 3070 Ti Founder's Edition have Lighting?
  5. Oh yeah, I always felt that my monitor looked amazinggg. I've never felt that the contrast ratio was bad in regular use. Plus looking at a pitch black image is not something I would usually do lol. The more light sources on the screen, the better blacks look so for most scenes, even in a dark room, the contrast will look fine.
  6. Sorry guys, thanks for replying! Appreciate the effort, but I figured it out. Posted it above for anyone else who makes the stupid mistake that I made lol.
  7. Figured it out! I'm an idiot. People said I have to be in a dark room to notice the bad contrast ratio meaning no exterior light. Well obviously that includes light from the monitor around my black image. I did not have the black image fullscreen'd. I had a bright, crisp white bar at the top from my browser. Making the black image completely fullscreen RADICALLY changes the way it looks. It looks A LOT more gray when I do that. It does not look pitch black at all when I fullscreen the image and I also notice a lot of IPS glow. And as soon as I hit "esc" and the white bar at the top
  8. But the image looks black on his VA monitor and does not look black on his IPS monitor. You mean that recording it makes the difference worse in the video?
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YziWErIr_w&t=89s This video shows off an IPS vs VA contrast ratio. In this video the black on the IPS monitor looks like dark blue. It looks terrible! But I have a pretty average IPS monitor (rated at 1000:1 which is supposed to be pretty poor). Apparently blacks will look gray in dark lit rooms with that contrast ratio. I am sitting in a pitch black room right now looking at my average, run-of-the-mill IPS monitor looking at this pitch black picture: https://wallpaperplay.com/walls/full/2/0/7/15810.jpg It loo
  10. Yes it does which is why I'm thinking it's not the root of the problem, just one of the things that consistently triggers it. Because without those updates installing OR after they have installed (after many crashes and some luck), it seems that the systems can be fine for days or even weeks.

  12. Thing is I've got my 8700k overclocked to 4.8 Ghz. So won't leaving the i9 at stock settings be a downgrade for gaming? Maybe I can overclock the i9 to 4.5 Ghz without awful temps, not sure how hot it actually runs.
