  1. Firmware is on the GPU, drivers are on the computer. You would need to install the driver on the system that you want to use the GPU.
  2. For a gaming system, $300-500. Most games are so GPU-bound these days that it's going to be the most important part of your build.
  3. Probably, I just wanted chipset and CPU information so I can find out the max speed of RAM he could use.
  4. Can you post full system specs (i.e. screenshot of HWiNFO)? There's no point in buying RAM that runs faster than your system can support.
  5. For gaming, yes. A 3600 (preferably overclocked) and a 3060ti/3070 is a better pairing, because most games are pretty GPU-bound these days.
  6. The 700W rating is supposed to be continuous, but whether or not the unit is actually able to maintain that will depend on the quality of the power supply.
  7. It's really hard to tell. You might get a unit that's fresh off the production line, or you might get a unit that's been sitting on a warehouse shelf for three months. Thankfully, the B550 GAMING EDGE WIFI has a BIOS flashback feature that allows you to update without the CPU, so you don't need to worry. Here's a great video that explains the process.
  8. Welcome to the forum! Just looking at the product page, it looks like the monitor has included speakers. Your audio might be coming out of those instead of your headphones/laptop speakers. In the Windows settings app, search for 'Sound Settings' and make sure the output device is set to the device you'd like to use.
  9. SLI is pretty much dead. There are very few modern games that support it, and even fewer that support it well. Save your money for when a 3070/3080 is actually available.
  10. What are your temperatures? If you don't have enough cooling, your CPU might throttle the boost clock down in intensive games.
  11. As long as you've properly reached your XMP frequency (you can check in the memory section of CPU-Z), it shouldn't have any affect on performance. If the RAM is rated for the same frequencies and timings (which both your kits are at 3000MHz), single-sided vs double-sided and Hynix vs Samsung shouldn't make a difference.
  12. Hey, with the whole algorithmically-driven never-see-an-opposing-point-of-view social media hell-scape we find ourselves in, I'd say we're pretty close!
  13. If you can link to the new supposedly "rated" PSU, I can take a look to see whether I think those positive reviews are trustworthy. But I'm always going to be skeptical of a $17 650W PSU, because that would be literally impossible to manufacture and still profit off of. Even the crappiest, most generic, not-at-all-modular, didn't even pay for 80+ certification 650W PSUs from reputable manufacturers are like $55.
  14. I don't have much more to contribute to this thread other than this seems like a bit of a strange thing to get angry about. An advertisement is not a review. It is not a sponsored segment. It is not an unbiased critique of a product or service. The fact that you need to clearly delineate which parts of your online content are sponsored is with the express purpose of indicating to viewers that these are not your opinions, they are part of a script which you are being paid to read. Especially with something like a video game, where whether you like it or not is so dependent on personal preferenc
  15. In that case, that's a pretty fantastic deal. New monitors with similar specs run about ~400 USD.
