  1. I am interested in upgrading my 2070 to a 3080 but I am unsure of how to evaluate impacts on heating and what other elements will cause stuff like bottlenecks. How do I assess if my current builds cooling will be sufficient for a 3080 and if my RAM/CPU are sufficient to not cause massive hindrances? I have 4 RAM slots with 2 filled, though because of how big my cooling is, I would only be able to put 1 more stick in (maybe, possibly won't fit between the two already in there). I don't think we know the power supply requirements for a 3080 yet, but just adding a 2080ti to my build keeps me well
  2. Oh awesome, so this for an AX router would be optimal? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HM6KJN8/?tag=lookgadgets02-20&th=1
  3. Just avoid the Netgear router or is the Netgear modem fine? Or should I avoid Netgear in general?
  4. Thank you! Any chance you know a way I can make sure it is compatible with the modem I am considering?
  5. Hey everyone! Recently I got rental Modem/Router combo #2 from my ISP (RCN) and while it is more reliable than #1, it is way slower (showed like 800mbps on my desktop when the tech was here, he leaves, and it drops to 30 mbps), so I am breaking off from rental. Now my situation is more particular, as I need to run a MOCA to get my desktop hardwired, so I want to make sure this can all be set up as needed. Currently I have two of the following MOCAs, one on the Modem and the other on my desktop: https://www.amazon.com/Actiontec-Bonded-Ethernet-Adapter-ECB6200K02/dp/B013J7O3X0
  6. Sorry getting back so late, thank you each of you! I took a closer look (well "hear") and its actually coming from towards the top, either the fan on top, or maybe the CPU cooler. I can't seem to get audio as that top fan overshadows the buzzing for my phone, though I can hear the buzzing but not the fan from where I sit
  7. Hey so recently I have been hearing a crackling noise from my 2070 and I don't think I first heard it until after playing Vampyr for a bit and it was hitting 100% of the card (Max settings, 4k, V-sync, my tracker says its averaging 50 but often 60 fps, so maybe I am overdoing it?). Now even without something intensive it tends to start crackling eventually. From what I read in general that this isn't harmful, but I wanted to ask more specifically to a 2070: Can this become something problematic? Can it be indicative of major upcoming issues? I know 2070s had artifacting and crashing issues, ca
  8. To note I still need to install the 970 Pro, and in hindsight I should've done a 2080 since I did not realize the 2070 could not do SLI. Maybe should've done the i7 8700K, but regardless of this (well partially regardless of the SLI error), I am still happy with it. I know I know, I could have saved $200 on a 1070 TI, but I figured that I am already spending so much I may as well bump up a bit. The Hitachi and 850 EVO were salvaged from my laptop with a dead GPU. Hit me with your best shot, the $2233.79 is fairly close to what I paid altogether with tax and warranties, please note that the mon

  10. I have an old surge protector that I am unsure of its stability, it sometimes gives a blue spark when i plug something in so I want to get something to replace that can also keep my computer running for a few minutes after I lose power. I saw this article, but I am unsure of what I should be looking for in what makes them reliable, safe, and not complete overkill. Any suggestions or advice on what to look for would be greatly appreciated, thanks! Link I originally saw: https://www.pcgamer.com/the-best-uninterruptible-power-supplies-ups-for-pc/ Sorry for dela
  11. Do you think upgrading would be worth it and just get rid of the 250 850 evo? Is it difficult to transfer from one ssd to the other? partic the OS
  12. So essentially my MOBO has 2 ports when it can only use 1 at a time?
