  1. Got myself the same monitor. Paired with a GTX 1060 (laptop variant) But I have to use HDMI (which shuld be limited to 100hz) but my laptop cant handle more than 50 without having issues. Living in the Philippines I have had to overseas source a mini dp to dp cable (its one of the only cable variants you wont find in Manila easily) Hoping that once i pair it up, i can get the full potential of the monitor. Great monitor though. 34" curved and helps me for my WFH for a cheap price. Cant really be beaten for budget
  2. Thats what im leaning towards at this point for the USB headset Just not sure if im missing something with the audio jack issue or if it really is just busted/not properly functional But yeah, the new headset i bought is within warranty sso i will try to return it tomorrow and pick up a USB only headset.
  3. Hey all Been a while since i posted in these forums - things got in the way. Anyway straight to it, Have a laptop (ASUS GL703g - i7 8th gen) with a combo 3.5mm jack for a headset. Recently purchased a new headset (kinda cheap but im on a budget right now in the Philippines) which has USB and 3.5mm jack connector. Both need to be plugged in to function. Problem is, the mic is barely detected. I have to shout into the mic whilst its literally in my mouth for audio to be picked up. I thought it was the headset - but I tried also wit
  4. Honestly, given the 1080p gaming you are doing, I wouldnt go with any of them. Grab a 1660ti or 1660. On the other hand, if you bump up the resolution, grab the 2060 super/5700XT (whichever is better priced) and grab a 1440p monitor. Bottlenecking (if any) will be minimal but it depends on the title. 1080p taxes more around the CPU and only when you start pushing up to 1440p/all the max settings, does the GPU start coming into play more. So to get the full effect of a new GPU, you would want to consider the jump from 1080p to 1440p.
  5. Try a different port/cable (I notice that the B85m has HDMI and DVI-D so try the other cable into your monitor if you can) You mentioned here (but not in the original post) that you have a GPU so ignoring the GPU try running a display from the motherboard directly
  6. Still closed = backup into partition was just to store files from the OS whilst I sold off my PC but keep all files. Temporary measure. Never intended for long term
  7. From what you said about your friends RAM didnt that mean that you tried his too?
  8. Just to clarify: You went to a friends and put your hardware into his system and it worked Then your friend came to yours and put HIS hardware into YOUR system and it DIDNT work? Because if that's the case, you might want to double check your monitor as its the most likely culprit. Check everything is connected properly. Maybe connect the display to something else like a console or another computer to see if you get signal.
  9. If you're going for value, you actually cant beat what you already have. Since you already have it, you get it for free. Even with the new Ryzen CPU coming out at a good price, with a 7700k using 4 cores 8 threads you have more than enough performance in games and you dont need to spend on a new MOBO either. Considering that you can get good framerates using 2nd-4th gen intel chips even now then really you have a good few years before your CPU is even considered "not able to game with".
  10. If you're comfortable enough to try it, then take it all apart and put it all back together again (reseat GPU, Cooler, CPU, MOBO etc). Something (anything) could have come lose in the move which is causing the issue. Also as the above response, you can also clear CMOS.
  11. Because its ebay and you find a lot of items which can be sold as "for parts" because they are broken. Many try to sell broken parts on sites with less quality checks like ebay, craigslist and facebook marketplace etc. Luckily, ebay has buyer protection unlike the other 2. Always be prepared when buying used old hardware that it may encounter issues. Just grant yourself lucky that the issue presented itself right away as in some cases an item may "function" fine without you noticing something is wrong, and then when it eventually shows that there is a problem, you may be outside of
  12. Couldnt tell on the rad support from the photos but good to know. Only reason why I mentioned it was because after intake through the radiator you will naturally be running a slightly warmer circulation through the build (and as the lower GPU has less space I would have opted for cooler air) but as its not possible to mount to the top, that makes sense for your set up. Cleaning up the cables is a benefit to airflow and dust management. Its not just about looking nice. If you just move them away from the central; part of your build and tuck them away, it will help you more in the lo
  13. Timestamp 4:28. For each gaming machine that you want to run off your computer you will need 1 dedicated gaming capable graphics card" Also this question was posed a couple of years ago with the same outcome: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/663973-is-it-possible-to-run-2-virtual-computers-off-the-same-gpu-with-modest-performance/
  14. Personally not sure of the name as it doesnt scream "devil" at me. Also if it were me, I would have mounted the radiator to the top as an exhaust and have 2-3 front intake fans instead to supply cooler air into the chassis. Maybe also worth looking for sleeved GPU cables and clip the rest of your cables off to the sides of the chassis to move them out of the way.
