  1. I think you can set a preference for types if WU, so smaller or bigger WU for example. I just skimmed it but this might help: https://foldingathome.org/support/faq/installation-guides/configuration-guide/
  2. im pretty sure they lowered the default resolution since so many people self isolating meant more people using it aka more bandwidth, but as far as im aware if you set the resolution yourself then it should be the same as ever.
  3. The display ports on the motherboard are for when you use an apu (like the 3200G etc) that has on board graphics. I’m pretty sure (not 100%) that you can’t actually use the motherboard display port when using a graphics card. Though this wouldn’t be a problem since the graphic card will have its own display ports. I don’t have any specific recommendation for a cheap graphics card, but it’s wouldn’t be hard to find a cheap one if all your doing is basic tasks.
  4. I’ve had problems with my computer involving RAM that I’d tried various ways to identify and fix, I thought I had at one point and then found out I hadn’t, so eventually I gave up and just decided to use the two ram sticks in single channel. I won’t go into detail on the problem in this post since I’ve already made multiple posts for my problems with the RAM, but basically I can only use the first two slots in my motherboard for RAM (either stick in either slot, or both in the first two slots) with my cpu (3700x), dual channel worked, though not to the rams rated speed, when using a lower end
  5. The number after DDR4 is the speed, higher = faster which is better, but your motherboard and CPU will both have maximum speeds they allow without it being considered overclocking. If you have different RAM in the same system with different speeds they will all run at the slowest speed. It is certainly better two use either two or four sticks of RAM, so either two 8GB sticks or four 4GB sticks, there are reasons for that but other than just saying its because of dual channel I can't actually remember why.
  6. I've built my own computer and at this point im thoroughly regretting it. I've originally had a problem with my computer not posting if I had a stick of RAM in the third or fourth RAM slot (it would work both in the first two, though it always warned that it wasn't the optimal configuration, and it would also work with either of the sticks alone in either of the first two slots). I thought this was either a problem with the RAM (since it wasn't officially tested on this motherboard), the CPU (specifically the memory controller), or the motherboard itself. I had another single stick of RAM from
  7. You'll have to set the RAM speed in the bios to get it to run at an overclocked speed. Since the 3400G only officially supports RAM speeds up to 2933Mhz you can't guarantee that it'll do any better at all, but I believe overclocking to 3000 and probably 3200Mhz is reasonable enough (though obviously thats just my opinion, it could just not go any faster at all). Right now im using a 3200G until my 3700x arrives (the 3200G is also rated for 2933Mhz) ive had it overclocked to 3433Mhz with timing better than its rated and the same as its rated (the RAM's rated speed it 3733Mhz), but ive failed to
  8. At what resolution and refresh rate?
  9. Not sure about Roblox or Fortnite but i've briefly played Minecraft with a 3200G and got around 80fps going up to the 90s sometimes, and dropping down to 55-65 when loading lots of new chunks, and I know mods like opti-fine etc can improve fps (though opti-fine isn't updated to the newest version of minecraft right now). This was at 1440p. Since your planning for a 3400G at 1080p it'll probably be even better. As the computer is for a young child more storage/faster storage might be good just because children can be impatient and aren't likely to remember to delete stuff they've downloaded whe
  10. Has anyone done hardline custom water cooling for the NZXT H510 (or the H500, pretty sure the only difference is the front panel)? The H510 is the case ive got and I want to do a hardline custom loop (using copper pipe), but im not sure if its feasible with the size of the case and my current components. In particular my graphics card (5700xt Sapphire Nitro+) is quite large compared to the case, and im not sure of the clearance. If anyone has any pictures or links to videos of people who have done this i'd appreciate it, seeing how others have done this (if many people have) would be pretty he
  11. I figured it out. The answer is im an idiot. I had to send my 3700x back so im using a 3200G, which uses pcie 3.0 x8. Thanks for your help though.
  12. My Radeon software says my 5700xt is currently using pcie 3.0 x8. Ive got an x570 motherboard so its capable of pcie 4.0, though I know there wouldn't be any difference between 3.0 and 4.0 for the 5700xt, would the x8 instead of x16 have an effect on performance? Also, even if it doesn't actually have an affect on performance, why is it not using the best available settings anyway?
  13. If your thinking about buying both a 2400G and a dedicated graphics card its probably not worth getting an APU and a separate graphics card at the same time. The only reason I can think of to have both in the same system would be if you already had the APU and later upgraded the system with the GPU. If you already have the 2400G and the discreet graphics then I don't know if its possible to do exactly what you described, but AMD did have 'Radeon Dual Graphics', though I don't know if it will work with the 2400G.

  14. I'm buying a network card ,but I don't really know the trusted/quality brands. Is this a good network card: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07Y82HZV1/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A158I6UZAZKHGU&psc=1 I've asked for a recommendation here earlier and was told this was good: https://www.amazon.co.uk/T6E-Archer-Wireless-Interface-Low-Profile/dp/B013HCNTZU/ref=sr_1_17?crid=WL3MCU0JSSAZ&keywords=tp%2Blink%2Bac1900&qid=1579651858&s=computers&sprefix=tp%2Blink%2Bac%2Ccomputers%2C247&sr=1-17&th=1&tag=linustechtips-21 The second one is more expensive and does
