    you could use the computer by itself or get a 770Ti or something like that. Cause games now require 6gb or more.

    Alienware 15 R2 got a reaction from Mel0nMan in Im completely stumped. I have no clue what could be cause this issue.   
    I think its because your Board only supports 2nd and 3rd gen Ryzen processors. Check if there is a BIOS update for that.

    No brainer, Legion 5 Pro 2021 model seems to be available in the UK for ordering (6+ weeks for shipping though), best panel (100% sRGB, 165Hz, HDR 400 certified, 2560x1600 IPS) and perhaps the best value gaming laptop you will find.
    The base model, which is ok in terms of specs but you really should add a bit more:


    And here is what you will get for an extra 300 pounds, which i highly recommend (click on customize on Lenovo website):

    Not sure how laptops are priced in the UK (or wherever you live that uses pounds), but converting your price budget to USD, your limit seems to be around $2,400 USD. Currently, a Razer Blade 15 Advanced with an 11th Gen Intel i7-11800H 8 Core CPU, 16 GB DDR4 memory, 1 TB SSD, GeForce RTX 3060 (6 GB memory), and a 1440p 240 Hz display, I'm not exactly sure if it's 100% RGB, but it does have 100% DCI-P3, and I'm sure you can get it more color accurate if you calibrate it yourself (though, it seems pretty color accurate out of the box).

    There's also a Razer Blade Pro 17, but I think it's a year older:

    I'm also not sure if gaming is your number one priority, but if it is, or if it's up there, it's hard to not consider this. I was deciding over a Razer Blade Pro 17 and a Dell XPS 17, and even though the XPS only has up to 2060 Max-Q for now, I only went with the Dell because I personally didn't like the RGB aesthetics, and the 16:10 screen ratio on the XPS is just so sexy to me. Plus, I can get an i9 in the Dell, and generally I've had good experiences with Dell in the past. 
     
    Here's my XPS 17 if you're interested, too, but it comes above your budget. I got a killer discount in the mail that was even better than Honey could find me, though sadly it doesn't seem like Honey can find anything right now. For context, mine has a 10th gen i9-10885H 8 Core CPU, 32 GB memory, 1 TB SSD, GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q, and the base 1920 * 1200p display. I'm not sure if the XPS 17 in the link I posted below has the base display or the 4K touch display, but both are only 60 Hz. This one is over $3,200 USD, and through my killer discount and through bundling with some accessories, I technically got this laptop for maybe ~$2,300 - ~$2,400, which I think is insane considering how much its going for right now.

    Should be noted, too that the XPS, no matter the 17, 15, or even the 13, are much more color accurate and are more marketed towards video editing and other professional work. The 1650 Ti equipped XPS models seem to do alright in lower-demanding games, but the 2060 in mine seems to be handling Resident Evil 8 on 1200p (1080p for 16:10) high setting with Ray-tracing off pretty nicely.
     
    Hope this helps.

    Considering this person's budget is in pounds, they could probably afford the 3060 equipped G14, or even a 3070 G15 for that matter.

    It would be 4 cars if thats ok? I would love a Lambroghini Diablo SV, A Honda Civic TYPE R "Spoon" Edition (It goes up to 11,000RPM), and a BMW 850CSI. A very Unlikely one would be the Ford GT90, my favorite looking car that got the futuristic look still on it.

    More than 2 channel is always good
     
    I tested on my 2x Xeon E5-2667 v3 system with 8x 4GB DDR4 2133 ECC Reg and I got the results. It runs faster than dual channel 3600 MHz
     

     
    I used it on my Pentium III system for fun. It worked before but now, this drive want not to read my JAZ cartridges... But I also have external JAZ 2GB drive 😉

    I had a power connector from an iMac where the power supply connected to the IEC power connector with some wires.
    I disassembled the iMac (dead screen) so I could get at the hard drive, and in the process pulled out the power connector.
     
    I then took out the wires from their plastic housing, jammed them in a blank Molex housing, and put that on the drive's power connectors.
     
    A pop and some magic smoke later, the drive did not work anymore.

    It works like a regular graphics card. Mattyb3 on Alienware owners and dell forums said so. His m18x has a 1070 in it and is way older than yours.

    That’s terrible. I still have the 24x DVD RW Toshiba Samsung drives from my Alienware and their IDE. They still work it’s just one of them doesn’t read because it’s jammed.
