  1. Yes for the former; No for the latter. I should also mention clearly that other devices and computers are fine in connecting with the vanilla version just that this computer in particular has troubles with it. My bad for the misuse in terminology, will check out WiFi analyzer.
  2. So I have a cable modem that has two Wifi SSIDs: the 5-G version and the vanilla version (the one w/o 5-G). Initially I was connected to the vanilla version and started noticing connection issues with it; My Discord fails to update; I have two One Drive accounts that failed to sign-in; certain websites I can't gain access to. I did the following: I tried right clicking on the wi-fi icon doing a trouble shoot, it couldn't identify the problem. I tried a Windows' reset the network option, same problem. I used command prompt to flush the dns and reset t
  3. Well I play Soul Calibur 6 on the PC; one of the aspects that it is impossible to the react to is Ivy's command grab; you have to anticipate and push a button beforehand in order to break from her grab. But if I were to react when I saw the animation of her grab would the higher refresh rate benefit in helping me break her grab? And what about reacting to low attacks in 3D fighting games not the slow moving ones, the ones that are a bit fast, but not too fast; would I be able to block lows more consistently?
  4. I watched this video from Linus Tech Tips and was intrigued by their methodology of testing so far. However, the monitor refresh rate tests were only applied to first person shooters. I'm really curious to see how this works in fighting games (which all are capped at 60 frames per second). Will the much higher refresh rate enable an average gamer to perform better in this genre?
  5. Thought I'll post an update. As of Black Friday and Cyber Monday I've bought all the necessary components for my build. The ones you'll probably disagree with me most on are the GTX 1060 graphics card and the Viewsonic XG2703-GS monitor. I'll explain: For the GTX 1060 that was months before Black Friday; it was on sale for around $400 so I decided to split the pay between my bro and I. The Viewsonic XG2703-GS monitor sure I understand that there are many other games that can't run at 1440p with ultra settings; however, I do plan on ge
  6. What about in terms of API. Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Vulkan help increase the FPS for certain games in comparison to DX12 and DX11? Edit: NVM forget what I've said.
  7. Hopefully by Black Friday or Cyber Monday I may have some remaining money to purchase the GTX 1070 ti. Thinking of going for the MSI Duke.
  8. With that said, for now I went for the Crucial - MX500 500GB M.2-2280 since according to Crucial's website this model is compatible with MSI's B450 Gaming Carbon Pro motherboard. I'm still considering getting the Samsung 860 EVO @ 500GB over the previous choice, until I find confirmation that it is 100% compatible with the MSI motherboard.
  9. I have a GTX 1060 6GB graphics card and am still struggling to find a perfect monitor that is great for Soul Calibur 6 (3D fighters are capped at 60 fps) and displaying accurate colour information for my 3D renders. Story: Initially I was going for the ViewSonic XG2560 or Alienware 25 AW2518H; I was hooked onto the 240Hz at first. Then with the advice from the LTT discord channel there are 1440p monitors for roughly the same price also there's one person who suggested to look into IPS panel instead of TN panel so I'm like ya that makes sense since I'm into competitive fightin
  10. After doing some digging around (mostly on UserBenchMark) I'm leaning towards the Crucial MX500 - CT1000MX500SSD1 @ 1TB. Initially I was looking at the SATA M.2 SSDs due to the fact that there's no cabling involved but they don't deliver the performance compared to the Crucial MX500 so I'm like eff it! I'm getting more value for my money and because it's in MSI B450 Gaming Carbon Pro's QVL I just wanna play it safe. I'm still opened for suggestions.
  11. okay then for sure I'll invest in SATA SSDs. Do you know a site where it strictly compares the benchmarks of SATA M.2's? I've tried google searching but it always seem to compare NVMe's to SATA M.2's. My apologies if I come off being an idiot.
  12. I'm not sure if I understand about controller latency but does that mean less input lag in gaming?
  13. @DocSwag based on this youtube vid, the author mentions that NVMe has the lowest latency when it comes to transferring data. What about input lag for competitive gaming, will that technically be less input lag on an NVMe than on a SATA SSD?
  14. Okay so I've checked newegg there are two versions of it. RMx for $139.99 Canadian RMx (2018) for $119.99 Canadian What's the difference between the two and which one should I go for?
  15. See Actually I am colouring (or texturing) onto the 3D model. Many 3D games that are based on photorealism use the Physically Based Rendering (PBR) method to reflect real world shading which is the reason I'm going for an IPS panel. I should also mention to you guys that Soul Calibur 6 is capped at 60 fps that's the standard that competitive gamers go by.
