  1. Cheap and easy way to go... https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Mini-Wireless-Supports-10-9-10-14/dp/B07PB1X4CN/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=usb+wifi&qid=1614365223&sr=8-4 There are more expensive ways to go, as linked in previous posts. All depends what you want to pay and how far the router is.
  2. We're having this discussion because I see things like "NVMe Gen 4 for boot, Sata for storage" comments. Gen 4 means NOTHING for 99.99% of users, so why do people think it's better to have? People are convinced that NVMe is faster than SATA, not just on paper but in their machines. I would like to know why that is.
  3. Curious how people feel about NVMe vs SATA and the new Gen4 drives, as I continually see people saying to buy a certain type with reasoning that I am not sure I understand.
  4. Why Gen 4 for boot and games? I'd like to know people's justification for buying. I may just do a poll.
  5. Are you going ot buy 1080p or 1440p screens? At the very least I'd go with a 1080Ti / 2080 / 3060Ti. 3x 1080p is more pixels than a 1440p Ultrawide. My 1080Ti pushes my 3440x1440p UW so that's the minimum for my preferences. Tho you can always run them on the 1070 and reduce settings until you upgrade the GPU of course.
  6. The 1070 has 3x display ports if I recall, so everything should be just fine as you have it. Are you gaming on all 3 or just the middle one? If all 3, then the 1070 won't have the juice to drive your setup even if 1080p monitors.
  7. Just looked, you have the Ryzen 2700x so no integrated graphics. Let us know how the PSU goes at least. While you wait, I'd look at warranties of your GPU and motherboard just in case. I'd hate to have you redo so many parts if an RMA would handle things..
  8. Fixed it for ya I'd say 500GB SSD boot, 2-4TB SSD storage. NVMe or SATA doesn't matter for gamers. I waffle between getting another drive for storage since I'm at 2TB and have to remove games at times, but then I think I don't play all of them anyway so removing them is just cleaning up.
  9. Only thing I do not like is the 1080p monitor. Go 1440p if 27". I like the 10700k, or even just the 10600k. The recommendation for a 5950x is mind boggling wrong for a gaming machine, as are the reasons behind it. No opinion on the UPS, but I assume you have less than stable power so it's a good idea.
  10. It's a decent machine, you can look for an i7 3770k for that board but not sure their prices. $200 gets you a 1050Ti on Ebay, That may be a decent upgrade but I think your CPU may not feed it well. Honestly, not sure what to do here. Edit: I agree, the only thing that makes sense here is saving a bit more.
  11. Yes, it's not much fun at all. What are your complete specs, or are they above? I ask because if you have integrated graphics, you can run on that and that'll take the GPU out of the equation. If you run fine without the GPU... you now know that either the GPU is faulty or the PSU can't handle the GPU added load for the system.
  12. You only have 276 posts, give it time. One can only be so nice for so long I'm trying to get a warning point from each mod, it's a goal I have.
  13. Okay, so that's ruled out. PSU update next. Welcome to trial and error and the scientific method of testing
  14. I'm at 3260 and Idolized, so that fits. Nicely offset by my 15 Warning Points Yeah, Idolized is a stretch for me.
  15. Exactly my experience as well. it felt like I would run 10 feet, pause, run 10 feet, pause, repeat. After turning it off, smooth as butter.
