    MadAnt250 reacted to minibois in adapters   
    It won't affect FPS, as in the performance of your PC, but it can affect the Hz your monitor can run at.
    Let's say you have a 144Hz monitor, but use an adapter that can only do 60Hz, it would of course impact that Hz (refresh rate).
    What monitor, connections and adapter would you use?

    MadAnt250 reacted to iIzzTheWiz in Quick monitor question. 144 or 240 Hz?   
    240 feels much less of a difference from 144 than 60 does. My advice is to get 144 to save some money on that end and get a better display instead of the extra hz.

    You can just fold it back and zip tie it. Wouldn't advise cutting it off as you'd render it useless if you ever got a card that needs an 8 pin connector.

    MadAnt250 reacted to Zomeguy in Help with buying a new GPU!? 3:   
    I assume you sold the 1660 Ti that was in your signature. However this is a really bad time to try to buy a new GPU as previous people have pointed out. You will either have to go through scalpers or learn how to use bots to secure a card. I also have no idea what the market is like in Australia so hopefully for your sake it's a lot better than here in North America.

    There you go, proof for the people with new builds that they don't need an RTX 3000 series GPU to enjoy games.

    He edited the post to say 300-400 euros.
    OP, can you confirm with the seller that the card is fully working, e.g. running benchmarks, playing games, stuff like that.

    https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/radeon-r9-fury.c2736
    Based on this, I don't think so, maybe(If that is part of a trade). If the GPU alone is 50 bucks, then maybe try it.
    Still seems like a good performer though.
    ALSO, I believe having more VRAM should be better for higher resolutions.

    This is how I zwift and game. 3 4K 120 LG CX OLEDs running at 2k 120 as that’s all the 3080 can do 😞 It crashes if I run the 4th screen. Fractal define 7xl, Asus tuff x570, 3900x, dominator platinum 3200mhz low cl ram 64gb, aorus master extreme 3080, 32tb nas, hdd hot swap bay, optical bay because there was room, supernova 1000 80+ gold psu..... It’s like VR without the crappy headset. 

    The AMD system is my main daily rig. I do have a gaming rig and it’s also pretty nuts. Asus Maximus 11 formula with a 9900k 2080ti and 2080super. I just let the intell system crypto mine. 
     
    computers are a sickness and I am sick as F.
    I will post some pics of my other systems soon. Enjoy

    MadAnt250 got a reaction from TechTheWorld in 1660 Super for $325, is it worth it in the current market?   
    Should be Ok, the price is steep, even for msrp, but as long as in works fine that may be a good deal considering the situation right now. See if they would take a little less anyway.
    Some of the newer games run smoother on 6 or more cores, but a 6700k can still game.
