  1. Hey man you may not rmbr me but you helped me out 2 years ago. I hope all is going well with you. I had a shitty pc and now i worked my way up. 180.3k followers on tiktok and over 28k on twitch. I blew up and afforded myself soooooooooo much more than I had just look me up on tiktok. (Emran Elsamra) I just wanted to thank you once again <3

  2. I don't quite get what you mean. The 1070 is surely better than the 1060 6GB. If you returned the 480, then here's my recommendation: If you want something right now, I'm sure you can get a 1060 6GB or an RX 580 very easily, and it will perform pretty well. If you want to wait a little bit, like a few weeks, then you could probably get a 1070 within your budget. If you're willing to wait a couple months, then you could probably get something like a 1660 for a similar price to the 1060, and maybe a 2060 for a similar price to a 1070? Depends how fast the price falls when the new GPUs come out.
  3. I would say that chart is very biased. If you think about it, what brands of laptops are the most common? I would go with HP and Dell, especially in a business setting. So, RescueCom will get HP and Dell computers most often, because more people use them. Therefore, they will represent a higher share of the computers. That chart doesn't speak to reliability at all, it really just speaks to which brand has the most computers out in the world. Personally, I find all consumer grade laptops from Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, etc to be very similar at any given price point. They all use very s
  4. In terms of the used market, you basically just have to look around and see what you can buy. It looks like either a 1060 6GB or a 1070 is going to be around that price, though it would have to be a pretty cheap 1070. I wouldn't really recommend buying something new though, because it's not gonna perform much better than your RX 480. For that bad boy, is it overclocked? And is it really dirty? What kind of cooler is it, or what model is it exactly?
  5. It's both of them, motherboard and OS. When I change it in the OS though, it automatically changes the motherboard time. I'm using Windows 10, and an MSI B350 Tomahawk. It's only two years old, so I'd be surprised if the CMOS battery is dead. I'm currently looking for another battery to try.
  6. I assume your ethernet cable is hooked up to the main Orbi unit, not one of the satellites? If you're hooked up to a satellite, then that would probably be the root of your problem.
  7. I would recommend using AutoHotkey or something, and then just rebinding mouse wheel up and down to the left and right arrow keys. This should be similar to what you would do.
  8. Whenever I shut down my computer for an extended period of time(like an hour or so), the time is completely off when I come back. Sometimes it's ahead, sometimes it's behind, and not just by a bit, it's often not even the right date. I've been stuck just re-syncing the time every time I turn my computer on, but I would really prefer not to. I though it might be a CMOS battery problem, but all my BIOS settings remain intact, like my memory overclock. Does anyone have any ideas about what the problem might be? Could it maybe be some program? Thanks, Alex.
  9. I wouldn't power with anything higher than 1080p for a laptop. With a screen that's 15.6" or smaller, it's impossible to see a difference between 1080p and 1440p unless you're sitting inches from the screen. I don't even think you'll find a laptop with a 1440p display, it's either 4k or 1080p unless you're looking for a gaming laptop.
  10. Hello there! I'm looking at buying an Acer Swift 3, specifically a model with an 8250u, 8 GB of RAM, and a 14" screen. At the moment, the same model is available at BestBuy.ca and at Visions Electronics, the difference being that the one at BestBuy is refurbished, while the one at Visions Electronics is new and on sale. So, my question is, what is your opinion on the matter? The refurbished model is about $200 cheaper, which is pretty significant, and it's labeled as like new A-Grade condition, with no or only minor physical damage on the outside of the unit
  11. This Microsoft guide will tell you everything you need to know: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/windows-setup-installing-using-the-mbr-or-gpt-partition-style I believe this performance difference is in your head, as the only real difference between the two modes is that GPT(UEFI) can be used with drives over 4TB, while MBR cannot.
  12. Is there a reason you want to do this? CSM is how a UEFI motherboard emulates BIOS, so changing that to off would allow not allow you to access BIOS boot devices. It actually depends on how your boot drive is formatted. If it's in MBR mode, then you have to boot using BIOS. If you format it in GPT mode, you get UEFI boot. If you disable CSM, use a USB Windows installer, and make sure to format your boot drive as GPT, you should be able to install in UEFI mode.
  13. Yes, this will work, but as @fasauceome recommended, mirroring the two monitors may be better.
  14. Honestly wouldn't really recommend this path. Bare bones laptops aren't really a thing. CPUs are not socketed on anything except the top of the line laptops, good luck finding a laptop that has an MXM slot that isn't already populated, and dual MXM is basically non-existent. Just save your money until you can buy an actual laptop, because there just isn't a market for custom built laptops.
