  1. Got a new laptop that has one stick of this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-ValueRAM-KVR32S22S6-3200MHz-Non-ECC/dp/B08HN9ZQG1/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=sodimm+8gb+3200&qid=1634335175&sr=8-6 but have found this for cheaper: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crucial-CT8G4SFRA32A-PC4-25600-SODIMM-260-Pin/dp/B08C4Z69LN/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sodimm%2B8gb%2B3200&qid=1634335175&sr=8-3&th=1 Do I have to go with the same exact stick for dual channel or will the cheaper Crucial stick work just as well?
  2. I'm really thankful you said that about reinstalling windows 10 because I wouldn't have thought to do that at all. I had a Lenovo Y50 that a family member now uses and the keyboard was great on that too, Lenovo was kind of the first place I started looking but I remember there being more options just 2 or 3 years ago at around 700 to 800 but nothing in that range is really worth it to me. Kind of bummed about not being able to get AMD. It would have cost an extra 70 or so for the Ryzen 7 4800h as I'm a student from Lenovo directly but I guess imma save some more money.
  3. That's a good shout. I don't really like those thin things though and If I was going to get one then it would be a macbook if anything. Think there's one going for about 250 more but It's out of my price range and I wouldn't want to spend that much as I only have in-person lectures once a week and just need something that'll work for a few hours with the occasional charge in between. If I could have the exact same specs but a better battery and less power intensive GPU then I would absolutely go for that but the anti glare screen and 120hz refresh rate are pretty appeal
  4. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-Legion-Gaming-GeForce-Windows/dp/B08BLJ8VJ4/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8&th=1 I'm about to pull the trigger on this Legion 5 from Lenovo as I need something decent from Uni (coming from having used a HP pavilion for a short while before). I need a laptop that will last at least 3 hours doing stuff like taking notes in word and the maybe somewhat more power hungry movie streaming and whatnot here and there during breaks. Shouldn't be longer than 3 hours without access to a port so that's all I should need. Will I hav
  5. Having two separate stands would give you more flexibility and you'd have an easier time aligning the two monitors. I basically have the same stand as you linked but under a different name and my 2 27inch monitors can look uneven at times side by side If I have the tilt on them wrong/different. You can adjust the position of your monitor on the mount using the little screw on top or however it is called. I like the look of just one stand as it looks cleaner and works for me as I do not actually move the monitors much from their current position anyway. For a more
  6. I don't know... I somewhat agree but think that there is a slight difference by brand, I have no evidence to back that up though so you may be completely right. the panel I got with the M27 was worse than anything I'd ever seen and that really put me off Gigabyte. I went to LG, bought two of their gaming monitors and they've been great, everything negative about the experience is more to do with the tech rather than manufacturing process.
  7. I had it for about a week until I returned it because I couldn't be asked to play the panel lottery. Didn't notice any blurriness. I now have 2 GL850s
  8. I am looking for something to replace my quite loud Razer Blackwidow Elite at quieter times of the day (green switches). On facebook marketplace I am able to get a new K630 for just £25. https://www.redragonzone.com/products/redragon-k630-gaming-mechanical-keyboard Not knowing much about keyboards other than the "mechanical > membrane" line of things I thought I'd come here for a second opinion. Just trying to have an interchangable setup here and I'm not interested in a wireless option as I have a membrane microsoft board for that already.
  9. This looks pretty good. I'd try and shoot for something higher than I need just because I like feeling satisfied with a purchase rather than wishing I had spent more on something better. That being said, if you really are bothered by the price I'm sure that something in the £400 range would suffice. Just remember that 600 is quite a big jump up for what you get.
  10. Agreed. I would still recommend a hard drive or two for mass storage but you gotta know what you're going to be storing. For me, It's frustrating going from using a 970 evo to a seagate HDD. It just makes that gap bigger and seriously puts me off at times. I was sure that I would use most of the 2TB when I bought it so it seemed like a good choice price wise but I've ran into a predicament where I might have been better off getting an SSD for the sake of saving time. Essentially I am the second part of the equation of what you recommended here.
  11. You might be better off buying a 27G2 from AOC. Haven't heard of any Lenovo monitors being rated too highly and I'm quite happy with my 24G2U.
  12. It would be a bummer to spend that money on a 1080ti only for the newer cards to return back to msrp soon afterwards. Not saying that'll happen but personally It would still irk me at some point in the future knowing how much I spent on it If I were you, but that's me. Then again, I'm sure It's still a great card since I have a 1070 that I got right before the shortages for £180. I do find myself wishing I had gone for a 1080/ti as that might have allowed me to run at better frame rates at 1440p.
  13. I recently added another 2TB Seagate (HDD) to my system and have to say that I regret it. I access files on it quite often and I definitely notice the cumbersome 140 read/write speed it has. There are other drives I have including a WD Blue SSD which has a read write of around 560 iirc. That runs much faster day to day and feels like a far more suitable component to have in a "higher" end pc in 2021. Didn't think HDDs were that bad but if you're constantly writing to it you can run into some problems. I'd shell out the extra money to bring an SSD up to the
  14. Everything used in this setup is official. I have had my annoyances with Synapse in the past especially recently since I started using Signal RGB.
  15. Really not sure where I should have posted this, sorry. I have a Razer Blackwidow which has multimedia function keys that I'll use change the volume normally. My problem persists with any other method of changing the volume that I use. If I go up by over 10 or 14 steps then volume will adjust somewhat accordingly, maybe reflecting 60% of the desired change with the rest following after what seems to be half a minute after making the change. This can obviously be distracting when viewing any kind of media and would like to check if this is a problem with Windows in general
