  1. My company uses a KeePass File on OneDrive that is synced to all IT-personal. Im pretty sure its not the best solution, but it works I guess
  2. The R5 will be a huge upgrade for you, but before you buy a new CPU + motherboard: Have you tried OCing your i7? IT will increase performance by quite a bit
  3. Pull, since the fins of the RAD wont be disrupting the airflow like they do in a push config
  4. That actually helped me getting my RTX 2080 back to stable. After a about 2 years my GPU started crashing randomly, not even under load. I decided to replace my cable and use an additional one, using a different rail of the PSU. Crashes were gone instantly
  5. You could probably stretch it to a Ryzen 5800x, if she can wait until the B450 BIOS updates release. Buy the same RAM again, it is fine you can maybe even tweak the timings. And a Radeon 6800. This should fit into the budget.
  6. Yeah, I think that the 5800x being seperate form the 5700 is pretty stupid. Just make it the 5700 and 5700x, would make more sense in my book. Or would that create confusion for some people with the Radeon 5700?
  7. The 5600x will be enough for streaming, if you get an RTX 3070 as the GPU has NVENC. Which is probably the best way to stream without losing a lot of performance. In a lot of games you probably wont be able to tell a difference.
  8. Id go for a better GPU first, since a 3rd gen i7 is still pretty good for gaming. After that, Id wait a bit more and see if I could get a R5 3600. This will make a far greater difference than a 2600.
  9. Still crashes from time to time after exiting a game on my 5700xt, but not during gaming for some reason. But it is way better than when they first came out.
  10. Also happens on my 8700k system. Its probably because the Mainboard checks all kind of stuff during boot, slowing everything down. The actual Win 10 startup is really fast for me
  11. Why is the top intake? would it not make more sense for it to be exhaust, since hot air rises to the top. It would probably work as you planned it, but I think the other way will lead to better thermals
  12. It is for me, but only because I still have my iPhone X. The other features arent enough of a reason for me to upgrade, a 120hz screen would be the kick I need to buy myself a new phone.
  13. Hardware Unboxed did a video on the new Dell S2721DGF, 165hz 1440p nano IPS display, which is their new go to recommendation for high end 1440p high refresh monitors. Its basically the LG Ultragear panel with slightly better response times. It should fall into your budget from time to time with a promotion.
  14. Just run it stock man. No human will ever be able to tell a 3hz difference when youre over 360hz. Also there could be frame skipping, you can test it here: https://www.testufo.com/frameskipping
