    homeap5 got a reaction from Padblaze in Is My 700w Power Supply enough for a RTX 3080?   
    Really guys? Do you really believe that your computer will need 800W PSU?
    I hope you don't must pay your own bills, because 800W is the same amount of power like 8 x 100 W bulb. It's only twice less than vacuum or washing machine.
    Higher margin is of course good thing, but don't ask OP to change his PSU if it's fine. After all it's not your money and bad advices costs.

    I remember this being a problem with Kingston V300 SSD's back in the day too.

    Gen is generation, x4 or x1 is multiplier. So you have pcie gen 2 which means speed will be limited a lot compared to pcie gen 4.
     
    Gen 2 x1 has 500MB/s, gen 4 x1 - 2TB/s. For higher speed you'll need pcie x4 gen 3 or gen 4.
     
    But you also have pcie x4 gen 2 which means speed will be about 2TB/s (4 x 500). Not enough to operate at full speed of your drive, but still fast enough. If card is x4 of course.

    homeap5 reacted to Oshino Shinobu in Are the keys legit?   
    There's many, many sites that have Windows 10 Home for around $5-$10. $30 is relatively expensive for keys from dubious sources. 
     
    They will work, most likely and they're legit in the sense that they are genuine keys from Microsoft. What is less likely to be legit or completely legal is the method in which the seller first obtained the keys, or that they are selling MDSN or educational keys which are not intended for resale. 
     
    There's lots of places to buy genuine keys for very cheap but they're almost certainly obtained in a manner that doesn't follow Microsoft's terms or sometimes obtained using stolen credit cards and the such. I wouldn't worry about the key not working, it's more of whether you want to support this kind of business.

    homeap5 got a reaction from Latvian Video in Impulse purchased a 3070, now regrets   
    3070 is very good gpu. If you're worry that you don't make deal of your life or best possible buy then you have different problem, but not related to your card.
     
    You must ask yourself - is this card bad? Do you bought it because you must break some world record? Or maybe (just maybe) you want to have good GPU for games? I hope it's the second answer, because in that case you made good deal.

    homeap5 got a reaction from Deepanshu34 in Bottleneck of GPU by motherboard   
    It matters. Or not. It really depends.
    In case 1650 - I think not really.

    This is really important to not mix too many colors in your pc. People who visit your house will be disgusted when they see your pc. Your wife will request a divorce, your dog becomes ill and the fish in the aquarium will keep you awake at night screaming.
     
    But seriously, if this is your main problem, then open Photoshop or GIMP, and check yourself how it will looks like together. Maybe you can even find videos on youtube.

    Use wired connection and forget about WiFi. Cables are cheap.

    homeap5 got a reaction from BoonWasDOA in Can my PC run a 144Hz monitor? Or should I upgrade.   
    Of course buying monitor first.
    If it will be enough, you can skip computer upgrade for some time. If not - you'll end with second option and upgrade computer too.
     
    You can't check it other way.

    You can buy 144Hz monitor and check. You already wrote about update possibility so I assume after update you'll buy that monitor anyway. So just buy it and check.
     
    Not only for 144Hz but also for freesync, so even when framerate drops, you'll not notice that.

    homeap5 got a reaction from pazzoeo in Failing HDD can still be accessed but really slow, fastest way to copy files over?   
    There is no problem with recover - drive still works and all data is accessible, just very slow. So using recovery tools at this stage is dangerous.

    If drive is failed, then cloning, copying or anything will be real pain.

    homeap5 got a reaction from Ankh Tech in Can i get 165hz stable on cod warzone with Ryzen 5 3600 and 2080ti   
    Any proof for that? Sorry, but this is simply not true. It's not that if new cpu is released, all old are automatically bottlenecking.
     
    OP: you don't must have stable 165Hz. Gsync/freesync is enough to get smooth gameplay.

    For that all you need is any working pc with lan and hdd. No need to build powerful pc. Game server is not the same as game.

    You can get whatever you want, most of well known brands made good PSU series, I'm just talking about my experience and I like BeQuiet PSUs because they never let me down.

    homeap5 got a reaction from DankDoodles in [UPDATED] Storage/Server PC   
    If you already have i5 8600k then you have processor not only good for server, but even for gaming pc. 6 fast cores with oc possibility is something that should work well. But if you must buy everything else... I don't really know. It's up to you. I still don't know if you want to play on this pc or just use it as game server and pc for Corel and PS. For that you probably don't even need gpu.

    homeap5 reacted to Windows7ge in [UPDATED] Storage/Server PC   
    A rather expensive solution to that problem don't you think? How do you plan on handling future expansion if you've confined yourself to a single 2.5" bay for mass storage?
     
    Well, a game server doesn't run "the game" so to speak. A server for something like this just handles player data, if the player has moved, if the player has interacted with the environment, player statistics (health/score/name/etc), etc, etc.
     
    A server controlling this data doesn't have the same workload as the client system running the game. In fact unless you have A LOT of players the server will barely be utilizing the CPU at all to run the game server.
     
    Not to mention IIRC the MC server software is VERY single threaded. Unless you plan on doing some real multitasking on this thing it's kind of a waste.

    There is no wattage, not like you think. High wattage means can deliver more if you need it. Or, to be more accurate - can handle more demanding devices.
