  1. An very decent wired mouse for the price. It fits will in my hand and the rubber side grips are nice. I move several times a shift for work and so plug and unplug the mouse several times as well. I am also clumsy and have dropped it several times from standing height into tile or concrete floor without damaging the mouse. My one big complaint with the mouse is the RGB. The RGB looks nice but is tied as an indicator to the mouse DPI. So for example, I like blue, but the speed is too fast for when I am doing office work.
  2. I'm getting about 50-70 FPS in most games at high 1440p on my 1070. The 1060 will be lower. Even if your GPU can't handle it, upgrading the GPU in the future you will be set. GPUs get replaced faster than monitors. You will lose more perceived value over time playing with a powerful GPU on a weak monitor.
  3. Depending on the quality of the wiring where he lives it could be a problem with power coming from the outlet. This can be called "dirty power". http://www.tesengineering.com/electrical-engineering-what-is-dirty-power/#:~:text=“Dirty power” is an abnormality,a certain voltage and frequency. Have him try an UPS. It might stabilize his power source.
  4. Kind of depends on which of Frankenstein's parts you are referring too.
  5. PCPartpicker.com can be a great source for making a parts list you can edit and show to other people for input. Learning about different parts and what they do is necessary for choosing parts. Techquickie (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0vBXGSyV14uvJ4hECDOl0Q) is a good starting point for that. They also have a cool series on mistakes many first time builders makes. Watching review videos is great for learning about individual parts. Watching multiple reviews can give you an idea about how the part works in different configurations. Remember to watch the entir
  6. I honestly don't know (Samsung Note 9). It works fine for me, so I'm not that worried about it.
  7. I'm using Cinnamon, but that is because it works well for what I use it for. The nice thing about Linux is how customizable it is. The best desktop is the one you change to be exactly how you want it.
  8. I just bought a upgraded PSU from Best Buy. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/corsair-rmx-series-850w-atx12v-2-4-eps12v-2-92-80-plus-gold-modular-power-supply-black/6229601.p?skuId=6229601 I noticed while comparison shopping Newegg was the same price as Best Buy, but Amazon was $100 more. They appear to be the same supply and doesn't seem to be a 3rd party seller. https://www.newegg.com/corsair-rmx-series-rm850x-cp-9020180-na-850w/p/N82E16817139234 https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-RM850x-Certified-Modular-Supply/dp/B015YEI8JG/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2UDW3ZRF80
  9. I tend to average around 60-70 1440p high settings on mine. As for what is best for you it probably depends on what kind of games you play. I tend to play story based single player games, so frames aren't as big a deal for me as looking kind of pretty. If you play a lot of multiplayer shooters, then you might be happier with high refresh 1080p. I'm planning to upgrade my GPU sometime in the next few months. You will probably start to see some really good deals on 1070s in the used market in the next few months. If you are only upgrading the monitor or the GPU instead of both at the same
  10. Are you crashing in all games or just certain ones? An error messages or blue screens? Any debug lights on your MOBO? Any strange noises from the machine? How are your temps? Any graphics artifacts prior to crashing? Your CPU and GPU are getting a bit old. If you can afford too, you might want to consider upgrading. 2 cores is rough in games now a days.
  11. That would not be a great idea since it is an AMD graphics card.
  12. Fallout New Vegas - Great plot with lots of replayability. After you beat it the first time, it is fun to mod the hell out of it to keep things fresh.
  13. We seem to be in the minority, but I really liked that one too. Fun mechanics and filled in a lot of the lore.
