  1. That's what I thought as well. Thanks!
  2. Hi all, I'm looking to build a simple budget build (350€) for a friend. I am located in Germany (de.pcpartpicker.com). He will use the system for simple web browsing, file editing and playing minecraft (with as high settings as possible). He plans on running one 1080p 60hz monitor, which he already has. He also already has a keyboard and mouse. I'm doing this for a friend who has used older Apple products until now and wants to build his first PC. Thanks, Catchears
  3. Hi all, I have set my old android phone up as a secondary monitor for my PC and would like to use it to monitor temps. I tried using HWiNFO64 but as Windows would not let me set the scaling higher than 125%, I was stuck having to squint at the screen. I would prefer an app where I can cover most of the display (5 inch) with the values. Does anyone know of a program which can do this? Thanks in advance, Catchears
  4. I would even consider going back to a Ryzen 5 2600 and getting a 5700XT with the spare cash.
  5. Yep. Checked the monitor connection - no change. Cleared CMOS and now everything is fine, but still on the old BIOS version. That's for the comment.
  6. Hi all, I was trying to update the BIOS on my B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC with M-Flash. I downloaded the latest BIOS from the official MSI website and put the unzipped file on the USB drive. I ejected it in windows. I shut the computer down and opened the BIOS. I selected M-flash and it warned me that it would restart and self boot into "Flash Mode". It restarted and now it shows me a black screen. I'm a bit scared right now as I don't want to do anything wrong. Should I reboot the PC? Clear the CMOS? Try to flash the BIOS with MSI Flashback? The fans are spinning, the lights on the
  7. Ok, I had something similar in mind. Also a good idea, thanks.
  8. 1. Budget & Location Germany. About 800€, might be able to go to 900 soon. I already have a hyper 212 BE and a Meshify C because they were on sale. 2. Aim Occasionally a bit of video editing but mainly gaming, looking to run Minecraft, Overwatch and maybe other games in the future. 3. Monitors I have a 1440p 60z monitor rn but plan to upgrade to another 1 or 2 cheap ones later. 4. Peripherals I have a mouse and keyboard, but would need W10 (but I've heard you can get that quite cheap) 5. Why are you upgrading? I'm upgrading because a 2011 MacB
  9. Ok, thanks for the input. I might get that one then.
  10. Yes. Something I will edit into the origian post is that I am located in germany. How is this? https://www.amazon.de/Samsung-C34J791W-Curved-Monitor-Thunderbolt-3/dp/B07BX55MB6/ref=mp_s_a_1_fkmr0_1?keywords=Samsung+CJ791+34"+Thunderbolt+3+Ultra-Wide+QHD+(3440x1440)+100Hz+Curved+QLED+Monitor+(LC34J791WTNXZA)&linkCode=gs3&linkId=c70d8cacffed0409b9b4f191bd3b1f83&qid=1568136916&s=computers&sr=1-1-fkmr0
  11. Hi all, I am looking to buy a TB3 monitor. Bigger than 30" (if possible), 1440p, in terms of refresh rates 60hz would be ideal. Budget: Under 800. Under 500 would be good, but not necessary. I am located in Germany. Thanks, do tell me if I forgot anything, Catchears
  12. Hi all, I have (as the title says) got a question about thunderbolt 3 monitors. Say I have a desktop and a laptop. The laptop has Thunderbolt 3, but the desktop is stuck with DP. If I buy a thunderbolt 3 display, is there any way I can have my desktop connected to the display (all the time) but switch over to the laptop whenever I connect it(without messing with cables each time)? Is the best way to do this to get a DP to USB C adapter and then just plug my laptop in and change the source on the monitor each time? I will post the exact monitor below once I know which one I 'm getti
  13. I believe the Strix is the best, followed by the pulse. I cannot say anything on value as you didnt give us prices.
