  1. My plan is to replace a Windows 10 install on an old 3770k build. So just word processing, web browsing, coding, and other non intensive tasks. Also video watching.
  2. I want to get into programming (python and java). I was told Ubuntu is a great starting platform. Is that correct? Also should I install it on a SSD or flash drive?
  3. check this content out. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=optimum+tech+ghoste+s1 hope this helps . Optimum tech focuses on small form factor PCs. just dont watercool the gpu so that you have to undervolt to keep it cool.
  4. one of my biggest regrets on my 9900k build is that i didnt pony up for better ram. Can you please point me in the direction of a proper cas latency overclocking guide?
  5. There is no need for that. For my use case a 1660 ti will be more than enough. the 1660 would be ok but i want the extra raw bandwidth.
  6. thats why im looking at the EVGA card. It offers an extra 10 watts of headroom over the others But I'm worried about the lack of extra display ports, i would likely put it in my itx productivity pc later down the line.
  7. I would rather go with the 1660ti for the better memory bandwidth. I'm still going to overclock it too. do you have 2 or 3 fans on your gigabyte card?
  8. that won't work alongside my rtx 2080 in my main rig. Sorry i should have been more clear.
  9. Im not familiar with the features in the segment of graphics cards. is there a 1660 ti that is better than the others (features, ports, reliability)? I decided on getting a 1660 ti for nvenc encoding for my main rig alongside my rtx 2080, my only requirement is that it is a 2 slot card for fitment purposes; also later down the line i might put it in my itx pc. Right now im looking at getting the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti SC Ultra Gaming 2 slot because well: EVGA. the only downside is that it only has 1 display port and hdmi port. If i were to put it in my itx productivity pc later down th
  10. I found the ViewSonic VP2768 PRO im going to get that. Its amazing what searching amazon on a pc vs. android will do for your search.
  11. nope. my main is g sync
  12. my primary is a 165hz ips 1440p monitor so a 60hz should be fine. windows or nvidia (i assume) fixed the lower refresh rate flickering issue that i used to have.
  13. My old auxiliary monitor is dying. So its time to get a new monitor im looking for a sub $400 USD 27 inch 1440p ips monitor that has great viewing angles and good color reproduction. Do you have any solid recommendations?
