  1. this is the partnumber if it helps: Samsung M471A1K43CB1-CWE Still dont see why the cheaper crucial kit wouldnt work. from what I see its the same speed, timings and voltage are the same as the other model, and seem to match the specs of the my onboard memory
  2. So I have the ASUS G14, model GA401IH, which came with 8gb of ram which I want to upgrade to 16 by adding a second module into the free slot. The preinstalled stick is ddr4 3200mhz, cl22. When searching, I came across these two options for: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07Q3HNC79/?coliid=I2TS63G7BPQQGK&colid=34GC078LISA21&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08C4Z69LN/?coliid=I18HNQGPAW08WG&colid=BJ1E74L6ZXMR&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it However, the second option is apparently incompatible with my laptop according to C
  3. I thought the Chevy volt video was pretty good. I don't mind them branching away from the normal tech every so often, especially when it's executed so professionally. I thought the DJI sponsorship in this video was great- not too obtrusive, but worked well at showing the excellent potential of their products. As far as the LG sponsorship, it is becoming rather noticeable. Most videos ive clicked on recently, I've been able to correctly guess immediately that it's sponsored by LG. I've enjoyed videos like the TV viewing distance one, it's the more obviously sponsored content that is
  4. Have a look at some of phanteks' lineup. Some of them allow for dual system, although one is ITX and Im not sure if it can have its own dGPU. You'll also need to buy their revolt psu as it only supports one psu. Theres always the obsidian 1000D too, but well its kinda massive
  5. For $1000 all you'll get is a dual core- which in 2020 is unacceptable. Im not saying macs are bad, but you need to spend a bit more to at least get a quad core, even for light productivity. For something cheaper windows based, look at the suggestions i left on your last post
  6. Thats true, but I think by better value, he means better quality components, which is undeniably true. Building your own gives higher quality components (especially PSU and motherboard) and the knowledge and ability to upgrade it later.
  7. I would always recommend building your own if possible, and if you were I would definitely wait. I understand some people don't want to, so if you want to go prebuilt, I would still wait. Idk how the pricing will go, but I would imagine retailers will be wanting to ride the hype train and spit out systems with the new GPUs as quickly as possible. (Just my guess) Since the new GPUs are reported to be such a big improvement in performance, then I would definitely wait
  8. cpu is fine and an mx250 is nice for light gaming. Its a bit of an outdated and bulky design, but thats subjective so you may like that. Try and find more info on the display, and reviews in general as im not very familiar with it. If you can live with a smaller screen, the HP envy x360 with 4500U is excellent for £800, but is only 13 inches. The Asus ZenBook 14 UM433IQ is also good, offering excellent performance, with a ryzen 4700U and mx350. Again however, its only 14 inches (my preferred size, but im guessing you'd like larger)
  9. hmmm. Im not to aware of many 17 inch laptops under £1000 other than cheaper gaming laptops, like the L340 17 or the asus tuf a17 -both of which would have poor screens a build quality, and unnecessary power for your needs. As far as 17 inch ultraportables the only two that come to mind are the dell xps 17 and the lg gram 17, both of which are way above the £1000 mark. Unless anyone knows of any other 17" options, I would settle for 15.6" then. Since I cant think of any stand out models, ill give some general advice: -Ryzen 4000 is the best option at
  10. Prefered size? Touchscreen? Light productivity and browsing, or heavier stuff like gaming/video editing? Option for light gaming? Windows/Mac OS? Theres many options, so if you can narrow down your criteria that would help
  11. Id go with the dark power pro 11. Its still semi modular so you only have the 24 pin cable permanently attached.
  12. Whats your budget? For gaming improvements a GPU and CPU upgrade would probably be necessary. SSD and psu are good, but you'll need to get new ram and a motherboard if you upgrade the CPU. If you want a major upgrade i would wait a few months to see the offerings from ampere, rdna2 and zen 3
