  1. Hello all, I bought a new a laptop a couple months ago (Dell Inspiron 7591, Intel i7-9750h, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, 16gb RAM). I just got into PC gaming this year and have been playing through some older titles that I got as giveaways (ex. Assasin's Creed Unity, Borderlands 2, etc) which the 1050 can handle more or less fine, though it struggles to hit 60 fps on medium/low settings in Assasin's Creed. I'm interested in trying out some more recent titles but I don't think that the 1050 will be able to handle them. Having a dedicated gaming PC doesn't really work for my situation, so I
  2. Does anyone know of a male 4.5mm barrel plug to male USB-A/USB-C adapter? I'm try to figure out how to charge my laptop off my powerbank...
  3. Hello all, I recently bought a new laptop that I'm using for gaming, school, etc... If I'm doing a lot of gaming on this laptop, do I need to worry about the WASD keys breaking/fading (membrane keyboard)? I need this laptop to last me at least 4 years. Thanks for the advice,
  4. I found this Dell Inspiron 15 700 for a nice price, I'm just worried that the specs aren't good enough for my use. https://www.dell.com/en-ca/shop/dell-laptops/inspiron-15-7000-laptop/spd/inspiron-15-7591-laptop/ni157591n_wr_s106e The 8GB RAM should be fine for gaming but I'm not sure if it will be enough for running multiple VMs for programming and hacking. And is the 1050 enough for gaming?
  5. Hello all, I'm thinking of buying a new laptop and I would appreciate some suggestions. I need at least an i7 (or AMD equivalent), 16GB of RAM and a 512GB ssd. I would like discrete graphics too, powerful enough to run last year/some new games at 1080p, 60FPS medium/high settings. Battery should be ~6hrs while browsing/schoolwork. My budget is a hard $1500 Canadian or less. I was thinking the Dell G3 15 (i7, 16GB, 512GB, 1660ti). Is there anything similar to the Dell that is slightly cheaper?
  6. Thanks! I was planning on getting a new laptop in the next few months anyways. Do you think that it is still worth it to replace the module? Or should I just get a new laptop?
  7. Hello all, My old Lenovo x250 has been having some problems lately; most significantly it hasn't been booting up properly. I decided to run some hardware diagnostics from the BIOS and it showed some stuff wrong with the RAM. I ran some more in-depth RAM tests and these are the results I got (see image). I was hoping that you guys could tell me what this means and how I would go about fixing it? I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but you guys are always so helpful and knowledgeable... Thanks, Jasper1378
  8. Hello all, I have an old desktop sitting around that I'm not using and I thought I should set up Folding@Home on it. But for some reason my Dad thinks that if I do it, we'll get "hacked" and that his computer will be ruined because it's also connected to the WiFi. He knows nothing about technology and refuses to listen to reason. What can I say to him to change his mind? Thanks a lot guys, Jasper1378
  9. I'll be using mostly for gaming and some general use. I think I'd rather make it cheaper. But I'll have to wait and see what my dad says, he'll be paying for part of it. Thanks for the advice!
  10. Hello all, Is this a good mid-range build? Any advice appreciated!

  11. Games: Minecraft, Xonotic, Dota 2, Team Fortress 2, BRAIN/OUT, No more room in hell, star conflict, really just free stuff. Decent graphics would be good for photo/video editing, gaming. I don't think I need a high sRGB display... I don't mind soldered RAM, I probably won't be upgrading it.
  12. Hello, Budget: $1000-1300 Canadian Battery: 7-8 hours minimum, standard use (ie. Google docs, YouTube)
  13. Happy new year!, My current laptop is getting pretty old (7 years, second-hand) and I'm looking for a new one. Will be carrying to and from school most days so portability and battery life are important. Will be using for school work, photo and video editing, programming, gaming, etc. I was thinking min specs: Intel 8th Gen Core i7/equivalent AMD chip, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD. The less expensive the better Any suggestions? Thanks!
