  1. At one point the pixels become so bunched together, that from a normal viewing distance, you don’t see a difference. Add the fact that larger monitors are more popular and you got a 2 reasons to not make small feature filled monitors. I personally have seen the trend that 24” monitors are going the way of 20” and 22” monitors.
  2. More fans won’t do more at a certain point, especially if the case is as bad as the one it’s currently in. Oh boy, if I had a nickel for every userbenchmark scandal. Just know that it’s so bad that it’s banned on some other forums including popular subreddits. The cables are strong enough to life the GPU, and as of now they’re pulling it down. Do a bit of research on where you can route the cables, it just needs be from an upwards direction, not directly from the fans. You should be able to access the PSU via removing the back panel, the shroud is non-removable on most case
  3. The first problem is you used userbenchmark as though we exist in a fantasy world where it's reliable. The case is pretty bad in terms of fan placement + additional places for fans. That said it's a bit a non-issue unless you're getting egregiously bad temps. If you're that bothered about temps, get a new case and new fans, as the included fans are pretty bad. On sag, reroute the GPU power cables and use them to lift it, but sag is gonna be a thing with these heavy cards.
  4. open a hardware monitor/task manager and check the GPU and CPU laods when this happens, see which is the one that's spiking up and if there's a program you can pin it too.
  5. Depending on your area and if it's on sale, you should be able to find a 1440p monitor that fits your specs at the $350 price point. https://www.amazon.com/LG-27GL83A-B-Ultragear-Compatible-Monitor/dp/B07YGZL8XF/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1UX5X7N80BQ7B&dchild=1&keywords=lg+1440p+144hz+monitor&qid=1620164251&sprefix=lg+1440p%2Caps%2C212&sr=8-1 If you're in the United States, This is the one I recommend, but just a bit out of your price point.
  6. Try to find a pair of refurbished galaxy buds, it should be close to the price you want and 99% of the time it was just an unhappy customer who sent back the headphones with missing packaging.
  7. That's only when you swap the motherboard, there's also ways to find your key before you swap it in case you're paranoid it will happen.
  8. Step 1. Watch a free Youtube video on free editing software. Step 2. Do it until you get good at it.
  9. You do whatever you want to do with your money. It won’t perform as well as the desktop, but the desktop ain’t portable. Whichever you want it your choice to make.
  10. Did you remove and reinsert the CPU? Also it could just mean power, look at the motherboard manual.
  11. If you want one that lasts, you’re not looking at $200-400, you’re looking at $800-2000. You can extend the life of a chair by doing these few things; replacing the bolts replacing the base getting one that doesn’t recline lose weight(alternatively get one that covers heavier weights) replace the lift replace the wheels You’d be surprised to find out that the chairs you see in offices or education can go for several hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Obviously that’s the cost of not getting sued when a chair breaks and having a chair that
  12. It could be a lot, it be a steal, server parts and software licenses are a mixed bag in terms of pricing. If you’re the guy in charge of budget, get an outside estimate before you give the go ahead. Understand that these computers are invested in for many failsafes and extremely timely repair services. So if you plan to use it for a decade, $2k per year is a reasonable amount when you take that into account.
  13. Well first you have to ask what the primary usage of the computer will be. Second is whether you’re willing to buy used or second hand. Third, where your general location is, so that we can recommend products based on regional pricing. And lastly if tax and other peripherals need to be taken account into.
  14. I would go with b550 unless you’re either extreme overclocking or need the usb ports.
