  1. Video Idea: $h!t Manufacturers Say: EVGA Power Boost improves PCIe stability for overclocking https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=100-MB-PB01-BR
  2. Maybe a bit of a silly question... Any recommendations on what hardware (CD player) and software to listen to CDs on with the best quality? My PC does not have an optical drive but I do own an external one .https://www.newegg.com/nurbenn-model-gll-121-cd-rom-drive/p/105-005S-00001?Item=9SIAH197TP2724 Will this do?
  3. The one in the video is the 120GB model. The one in the link is the 240 GB.
  4. I'm really only familiar with US pricing. Perhaps someone else here can comment? These are usually in the $400-$420 USD price range over here (320-335 GBP)
  5. RTX 2070 is better than RTX 2060 Super RTX 2070 is slightly better depending on use case than RX 5700XT I'd go with RTX 2070 over the 5700 XT personally, but its really a bit of a toss up.
  6. I got my order in. I'll let you all know if it works. Also, this may be price error, yes, but other retailers might price match to corsair's official store, so there's also that option.
  7. I don't have any personal experience with these two. They're likely very very similar. I'm sure there is a negligible difference like 1% in performance. If you need a definite yes or no as to which is better, perhaps someone with more knowledge on these specific models can answer. Personally, I'd pick whichever is less expensive.
  8. People will joke that ASUS charges an "asus tax" just for the brand name alone. I'd go with the Sapphire Nitro+ The difference is just the cooler and any preconfigured overclock/power settings. These factors are pretty negligible for a gpu of this caliber so cheaper is usually a better deal. Another thing to check though is the number GB of VRAM onboard, they make two different capacities, 4GB and 8GB. If this ASUS is 8GB anf the Nitro+ is 4GB then that could be the reason it cost so much more.
  9. RX 570 would be my pick of these two.
  10. Okay perfect Thanks for your answer. Gaming is really my primary concern since I mostly listen to music in the car. I'll put the money toward that. And yes I really though the gunshot or car engine would be nicer LOL! Especially since EVGA advertises that their nu audio soundcards improve you gaming experience, I though this was a thing. evga.com/articles/01281/evga-nu-audio/
  11. Hello, I am looking for some advice. Here's some background for my current setup and it's use case. Speakers: Logitech Z623 2.1 Headphones: Sennheiser HD 429s Sound Card: Z390 Aorus Master Onboard (According to the MFG page, ALC1220-VB and ESS SABRE (reference DAC ES9118)) https://www.aorus.com/blog-detail.php?i=309 Microphone: Blue Microphones Yeti Studio Considering I have top end Gaming setup, I'd like to have a pretty nice audio setup to go along. I mostly use the headphones for FPS games, chatting on discord, and also any team game that requires voice
  12. Perhaps consider a B-stock EVGA RTX 2060 for $260? https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=06G-P4-2060-RX The catch is, it only comes with a 1 year warranty
  13. The 1860 MHz vs 1830 MHz means basically nothing since the Nvidia drivers will automatically boost the clockspeed higher than those numbers thanks to GPU boost. The RGB fusion is a gimmick for all practical purposes, though some people like the customization. (Keep in mind that you are technically paying extra for this vs a graphics card that does not have it.) The real difference is the cooling performance and overclocking headroom. At the end of the day the difference is pretty small. I imagine they go through the hassle because they get slightly higher profit margins on the m
  14. Typically, with a single GPU in mind, the best performance per dollar is just whichever is cheapest at the time you are looking to buy. Once you start getting into the higher end model of a particular video card, you tend to start getting into the price range of a better gpu all together, especially since the market is soo crowded as of late. If prices are equal, often more fans = more better but not necessarily 100% of the time. A little research can usually answer that. A lot of tech youtubers do extensive testing to determine which cooler from the manufacturers are the best. All of the diff
