  1. Thats basically every decent b450 or x570 board.
  2. considering my windows last time it attempted to install new updates "couldn't finish the updates" and bootlooped 3 days in a row I am not excited
  3. get a pair of studio headphones and a mod mic. Better audio quality for the money, and you get a microphone. In the range of 250euro, sennheiser and audio technica have good options.
  4. Sounds really cool but cloudflare seems to have an issue with the images, and I cannot see it
  5. Differences that I can see: ROG mobo has 2 full x16 slots (not that you can use both at 16 anyway) ROG mobo has 2 pcie gen4 m.2 ports where as the other motherboard has only 1 at gen 4 speed The ROG motherboard has more ports on the back including dual 2.5g lan instead of single 2.5g aswell as two high speed usb c ports ROG also has a thunderbolt header on the motherboard/' Considering you are using a 10600k, I would assume most of these features are not ones that you need, and so the TUF motherboard should be fine, but if any of these features are a must-have then you have you
  6. When it comes to cables, audio especially, it often makes sense to pay a little extra for quality. Bad audio cables can cause problems and so its important that the ones that you have are high quality.
  7. Large data sets for me are either game files or large folders (sometimes 10s of gigabytes) of many small files (I do music production) which I need to access quickly. If you see a 25% increase in speed with raid 0, it seems like a viable option.
  8. I have a motherboard with 3 full x4 m.2 slots and a cpu that has enough available pcie lanes to run all drives. (MSI x299 Creation, 10940x) I am trying to decide between a 2TB and a 1TB Samsung 970 evo plus, or getting three 1TB Samsung 970 evo pluses and running raid 0. System responsiveness is the first priority but I do often work with larger data sets and big files. TLDR: Is a couple of higher capacity m.2 drives or a bunch of lower capacity m.2 drives in raid 0 better?
  9. I haven't taken mine apart, but you should be able to just press the oring back into its grooves if it isnt pre-shaped.
  10. Funny thing I have an 80s laptop that runs 3.1 and it still works but I want to hold on to it for now.
  11. Only reason I was wondering was because the ibm thinkpad 300 was the first non-tablet thinkpad but oh well. Thanks anyways
  12. I found a couple of decently old laptops, one is a GoBook from Micron with 8mb of ram but that is all I could figure out. The other is an ibm thinkpad 300. Any clue what these could be worth?
  13. So I have saved about $1700 for my endgame monitor setup. I've been looking to get the samsung odyssey g9 monitor, but I am also weighing other options. I am looking to spend between 1200-1700USD on monitors, and here are my possible options. Other criteria include 1440p resolution or higher and refresh rate for 144fps+. I do content creation, often a lot of multitasking, and quite a bit of gaming. I will likely have the graphics power to drive it as I'm planning on using Nvidia's upcoming 3090 or similar. Option 1: Samsung G9 Monitor: Pros: 32:9, 240hz, 1ms responce time, HDR
  14. I ended up getting a hold of a 10940x for msrp, which was quite the task, but now I do own it. Computer is still being built but it should be perfect for my needs. Thanks for the input
