  1. This may not be the right forum to post this to, so if the Mods need to move it, go right ahead. I've had Process Explorer from Sysinternals for a while now and there is something that I've been wondering that my google-fu seems to be failing to find an answer to. I know what R/W for drive activity means [Read/Write] and I've gathered that the O means Other. What constitutes an 'other' operation? It seems to me like the only things you could do with a drive [HDD or SSD] is read or write operations. And, maybe more importantly, is it something I should be concerned ab
  2. I've used MX Red, Brown, and Blue before and I wound up preferring Reds. The only downside to having no tactile bump is that sometimes just resting my fingers on the keyboard is enough to actuate the keys. I've got a Corsair Strafe RGB [MX Red] keyboard and a wired Corsair M65 Pro RGB. I have found the dpi selector buttons useful in some games where you need one mouse speed for aiming and another for menus. I also like to play factory games like Factorio and Satisfactory and the ability to change dpi on the fly can help when trying to get precision. Any
  3. Ordered a Gigabyte RTX 2070 Windforce 2x 8GB Rev 3.0 from newegg.com on the 14th. Just got it installed and the Aorus Engine identifies it as a Rev 2.0 card. My Googlefu is failing me as I can't seem to find out what the difference is between the two other than possible heat pipe configuration. Is there an appreciable difference between the two revisions? If I have no plans for overclocking, does it matter? If I'm not getting my money's worth I'll RMA it, but if it doesn't really matter, I'd rather just get on with the games. Thanks in advance. OPB
  4. Well, I do play a lot of Satisfactory... I hadn't heard of appreciable differences between AMD & nVidia when it came to UE. Is there good evidence of that?
  5. Looking to upgrade from a Asus GTX 970. Can't decide on a Gigabyte RTX 2070 https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2070-gv-n2070wf2-8gd-rev-3-0/p/N82E16814932226 or a Zotac 2060 Super. https://www.newegg.com/zotac-geforce-rtx-2060-super-zt-t20610e-10m/p/N82E16814500471 No plans on overclocking or custom cooling. Just using it stock, out of the box. Usage will be purely for gaming. It's going into a system with Ryzen 7 3700 Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 CAS 16 Asrock X570 Taichi HP EX950 M.2 512GB Wind
  6. I'll seek out RGB components when they improve my game performance. Until then, I find them pointlessly distracting. But, hey, to each their own. ?
  7. Okay, still looking at all the suggested parts but let me add some info. The two main things I was looking for in a Mobo was 3+ M.2 PCIe 4.0 slots & built in Wi-Fi 6. I'm okay with getting 1 PCIe 3.0 SSD while I wait for the cost of 4.0 SSDs to come down, but ultimately I do plan on filling the other two M.2 slots with PCIe 4.0 SSDs. And yes, I know that since I will mainly be using the rig for gaming I don't really need the transfer speeds of PCIe 4.0 SSDs, but they are spiffy and I want them. ? The budget of $800 -$1500 is total outlay over the 5 year life of
  8. I'll check out the 860 Evos and see if I find something I like. Good to know about the RAM. FIngers crossed it will be enough. I'm kinda on the fence for cooling and power supply. I'm currently using a Deep Cool Gammaxx 400. A new one does come with mounts for an AM4 socket. I know mine is old enough to not have been designed for an AM4 socket, but I've found a few posts on other forums saying that they are compatible. Problem being that I don't remember where I put the AMD mounting brackets for it... The Ryzen 7 3700X does come with a stock cooler and since I
  9. My rig is just over 5 years old. Current system: CPU: Intel i7 4790S MoBo: ASRock H97 Pro4 RAM: HyperX Fury 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 10-10-10 G.Card: ASUS GeForce GTX 970 OC Turbo 4GB GDDR5 Storage: 1x WD Blue 1TB EZEX HDD 2x Samsung 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SSD I usually build a rig to last me 5-6 years and it is feeling like it is about time to upgrade. I am going to be saving up to buy the parts in January. This list is so I could get a price point to save towards; that said, I do expect some pr
