Fortunately, the online world has been full of livestreamed band performances, podcasts, and yes, esports.  Ranging from online shooters such as Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and the newest release from Riot Games, Valorant (Closed Beta) to multiplayer-online-battle-area (MOBA) games such as League of Legends and Dota 2, esports takes charge.  It's even been airing on live TV on channels such as ESPN! One particular esport has been taking this new world by storm and it's a real sport that you or friends used to watch normally.  That sport of course, is Auto Racing.  Also known as Racing Sim, this engaging activity that spans from Nascar to Indycar to F1 has the professional drivers you see on TV, take the wheel from their home to strive for points in games such as iRacing, F1 2019, and more.  I'd like to share with you the email I received from the iRacing Newsletter as this presents the opportunity for YOU to check out the hype of the online motorsports!  iracing.com/live 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 997 The Blog 34 What's Trending 156 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 5 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 76 Reviews & Buying Guides 23 Build Showcase 11 Contests 33 Past Contests 717 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 18 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

However, the store associate said this was not possible. He didn’t seem to sure of himself. Can someone clarify why this would be the only Apple product that doesn’t have a replacement plan? Associate said “it wouldn’t attach”. Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin June 2020 This is correct, Apple Watches do not have our normal replacement plans available for them, you have to purchase Apple Care. As for the why, essentially it boils down to that they function like cellphones, which we also do not sell replacement plans for. I don't know all the exact reasoning behind that, but that's how these devices are treated.  Apple Care can be added within 60 days after a purchase, if you'd still like to go that route.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 997 The Blog 27 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 718 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 18 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

The main difference than the kit you chose is the CAS Latency on this one is 16 instead of 19, so it's slightly faster. It's a small price difference for a slightly higher quality kit of RAM so I'd definitely go with that instead. Besides that, you don't need that set of Arctic case fans because the Lancool II mesh comes with four fans in the box already, and your AIO cooler comes with three as well.  What are you using the build for exactly? If you're gaming only then I think you'd be better served by jumping over to the i7-10700k instead, but if you're doing some other things that are more multi-thread intensive then the 3900X is a fantastic choice.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook THEJacksonSloan ✭ September 2020 Thank you for your Reply.   Yes, I am a gamer.  Not a good gamer, but I like to play.  Everyone likes to play with me because I am a good sport and I die a lot, helping their kill ratio.  And then I will be the one to go get the Pizza.   I do better at single player games with some strategy involved than I do at games like Call of Duty.    But I use my computer for my Entire Life.    I capture and edit videos, I stream movies, I check the news of the day, the sports scores, e-mail my Brother and Sister, receive instructions from my Boss (Girlfriend) -- AND I often times do all these things AT THE SAME TIME.    I grew up in a box known as the TV, but now I live in a box known as the PC.    So this build is very important to me, and I will tend to lean to the side of Overkill when building it.   I will switch out my Ram as you suggest.  Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 If you're video editing and possibly rendering then I think the 3900X is a great all-around choice.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 997 The Blog 34 What's Trending 156 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 5 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 76 Reviews & Buying Guides 23 Build Showcase 11 Contests 33 Past Contests 716 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 65 Consumer Tech 16 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 18 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

That build looks fine to me, just make sure you factor in the OS as well if he doesn't already have a valid Windows 10 license to use. Another thing to keep in mind is that the Ryzen 3 3200G's memory controller supports up to DDR4 2933mhz memory, and going beyond that isn't a guarantee that the memory will work. If you can save a little extra by going with slightly slower memory, I would recommend doing so as it will save you the headache of adjusting memory timings to make it stable.  These are a few bucks cheaper and should be easier to run in order to maintain stability: https://www.microcenter.com/product/608784/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-16gb-(2-x-8gb)-ddr4-2666-pc4-21300-cl16-dual-channel-desktop-memory-kit-2k8g4d26bfsbk---gray https://www.microcenter.com/product/474187/gskill-aegis-16gb-(2-x-8gb)-ddr4-3000-pc4-24000-cl16-dual-channel-desktop-memory-kit-f4-300c16d-16gisb---black-red If you have any other questions, please let us know! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 998 The Blog 28 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 719 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 19 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I've violated these sorts of recommendations before, and the system usually works fine anyway.  But not always.  So it would be nice to know ahead of time if this is a bad idea. Also looking to upgrade my video card.  But that seems more straightforward. FYI, my local Microcenters are Parkville, MD and Rockville, MD. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 5 Hello @MortyA I can't say that I'd recommend mismatching speeds, however, should you add a higher speed RAM set to your system, it will typically downclock to match the lowest speed in the system. The system will always be capped to the lowest RAM clock in the system. However, if they all match in speed and timings, you'll typically have better performance. Mismatched RAM can lead to other system errors that would harm the performance of your system. In some cases causing your system to crash or hard reset. You're mostly correct about the GPU! Just make sure that you've uninstalled the old GPU drivers before you add the new card. A fresh GPU install with cleanly installed drivers is always recommended. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 997 The Blog 34 What's Trending 156 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 5 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 76 Reviews & Buying Guides 23 Build Showcase 11 Contests 33 Past Contests 717 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 18 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Here is what I have picked out, this is a great build for the price. If you had any wiggle room up in your budget, you could definitely change the video card to something higher without the need to change other parts. This list also includes Windows 10 on USB as well in its price, so if you didn't need that you could easily change the video card / add more storage here.  Configure Your PC: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=f56bac6b-8129-4c7f-a74e-ec8cb194214e CPU: (1) AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Matisse 3.6GHz 6-Core AM4 Boxed Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler ($159.99 EACH) Motherboard: (1) ASRock B450 PRO4 AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard ($89.99 EACH) RAM: (1) Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit BLS2K8G4D32AESB - Gray ($68.99 EACH) Case: (1) Lian Li 205 Tempered Glass ATX Computer Case - Black ($69.99 EACH) Power Supply: (1) PowerSpec 550 Watt 80 Plus Bronze ATX Non-Modular Power Supply ($49.99 EACH) Video Card: (1) EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO Ultra Overclocked Dual-Fan 6GB GDDR6 PCIe 3.0 Video Card ($314.99 EACH) M.2 SSD: (1) Inland Premium 512GB SSD 3D NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive ($74.99 EACH) Hard Drive: (1) WD 1TB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (Refurbished) ($29.99 EACH) Operating System: (1) Microsoft Microsoft Windows 10 Home 32/64-Bit - USB ($139.99 EACH) Total: $998.91 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 997 The Blog 27 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 718 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 18 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Having stated that you want it to be easy to upgrade down the road, reaching for the PSU and motherboard with the X570 chipset is a great move. Seasonic is top notch when it comes to power supplies. X570 with the Gen4 PCIe will give you a lot of time with that board.  If you were going to change anything, a better board. Factor in the bundle discount and there are a few MSI and Asrock boards available at the top of your price range. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CKnight ✭ February 2020 Couple of changes I would suggest. 1. change out the Ryzen 7 2700x to a Ryzen 5 3600. The 3600 is faster even with fewer cores. 2. I the power supply is overkill. could save some money by dropping to a 500-550 watt unit. Powerspec is good. My 2080ti overclocked is running on a powerspec 750w. Been good for over a year. 3. as for the SSD. Get a 256mb m.2 just for a boot drive "Install OS in it" and cache. Get a 1-2 TB Seagate drive for mass storage. Mechanical drives are WAY faster when they do not run the OS. This si give you lots more storage with no noticeable loss of speed. 4. Water cooling. This is not really needed unless you plan to overclock. if you still want water just cause its cool =P then I suggest nothing less than 240mm of rad per component. 120mm will heat up pretty good unless you put a high rpm aka loud fan on it. 240mm will have 2 fans and you can run them nice and silent while running colder than a passive air cooler. Good luck! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin February 2020 CKnight said: Couple of changes I would suggest. 1. change out the Ryzen 7 2700x to a Ryzen 5 3600.

Good luck! Welcome to the forum, and thanks for the great suggestions! The Ryzen 3000 series is definitely worth the investment if gaming is the main concern as the massive IPC improvement from 3rd gen greatly improved gaming performance as a whole. You also touched upon using the SSD as a cache, which is a fantastic idea since AMD included a caching feature in their StoreMi software.  @TheITDad If your sister doesn't currently have a gaming monitor, it might be worth factoring that into the budget. Pairing a high end graphics card like an RTX 2070 Super with a 60hz non-gaming monitor will definitely have a negative impact on your sisters overall gaming experience. If you have to drop down to an RTX 2060 Super in order to add a gaming monitor to the budget, I would say it's worth the investment, especially since you can get 144hz FreeSync panels for as low as $150 these days, which now work with Nvidia graphics cards. I would also recommend exercising caution with QLC SSD's. While they are great for fast, cheap storage, their durability is not as strong as SLC, MLC or even TLC flash. If you plan on storing important files on this drive, I highly recommend backing your data up frequently or investing in a smaller, more durable SSD and use a larger spinner like @CKnight suggested. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin February 2020 TheITDad said: CPU: (1) AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6GHz 6 Core AM4 Boxed Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler ($159.99 EACH) Motherboard: (1) Gigabyte X570 UD AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard ($139.99 EACH) RAM: (1) Crucial Sport LT 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 PC4-24000 CL15 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit BLS2K8G4D30AESB - Gray ($74.99 EACH) Case: (1) NZXT H510 Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - Black ($69.99 EACH) Power Supply: (1) Seasonic USA Focus Plus 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply ($119.99 EACH) Video Card: (1) ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 Super ROG Strix Triple-Fan 8GB GDDR6 PCIe 3.0 Video Card ($419.99 EACH) M.2 SSD: (1) WD Black SN750 250GB SSD 3D V-NAND PCIe NVMe Gen 3 x 4 M.2 2280 Internal Solid State Drive ($62.99 EACH) Hard Drive: (1) Seagate BarraCuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ($49.99 EACH) Thermal Compound: (1) Performance PCs Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Grease  - 1g ($11.99 EACH) Monitors: (1) Acer Nitro VG240Y Pbiip 23.8" Full HD 144Hz HDMI DP FreeSync LED Monitor ($149.99 EACH) Total: $1,259.90 This updated list looks fantastic. I am sure your sister will enjoy the gaming experience given how well rounded this system is. The RTX 2060 Super is plenty fast for the vast majority of 1080P games and she will be able to enjoy them at a much higher, buttery smooth framerate thanks to your choice in monitor. Do make sure she enables G-Sync compatibility mode in order to get the best experience: https://www.microcenter.com/tech_center/article/10968/how-to-enable-nvidia-g-sync-compatible-mode.  Also keep in mind that you will need ASUS's Aura Sync software to control the RGB LED's for that graphics card if she wanted to customize them.  Your choice in SSD is definitely more durable and I think she will appreciate that in the long run. If you can swing another $17, you can get double the capacity: https://www.microcenter.com/product/607730/wd-black-sn750-500gb-ssd-3d-v-nand-pcie-nvme-gen-3-x-4-m2-2280-internal-solid-state-drive. Also remember that your component pricing does not reflect the bundle discounts. You will save $20 on the motherboard since you are bundling it with the CPU, and you will save another $5 on the SSD since you will be bundling it with a CPU or motherboard. That will shave another $25 off your total price which will get you down closer to your original budget.  As @CKnight mentioned, you could also go with a cheaper power supply as your component selection won't consume much power. The 750W SeaSonic PSU will definitely allow for upgrades, but if you needed to save money in the meantime, you could easily get away with a 500-600W PSU. Best of luck with your sisters build! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 998 The Blog 28 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 718 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 19 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Camco ✭ March 2020 in CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards So, I recently bought a pre-built, as my options were limited to how I got my new PC. I've many in the past, but hard times makes decisions a little more complicated. Anyways... So I got the PC delivered on Friday the 28th. Hated the layout of the case and the sketchy CPU, so I swapped them with parts I already had (Fractal Meshify C and a EVGA 750 G+ psu) Over the course of the weekend I was monitoring temps/speeds via CPUID and CPU-Z and noticed that my CPU is running almost constantly at 4.5ghz to 4.9ghz. This concerned me given the 9700k is supposed to be clocked at 3.6ghz and I have not done any overclock. For cooling, it is some cheap CoolerMaster 120mm AIO. I currently have 3 120mm intakes, and 3 120mm exhausts.  Motherboard is an ASUS Prime Z390-P. I went to see if anything was set to OC, but I could not find anything, but maybe I am missing something. Any help would be appreciated as, I already ordered some better fans in hope to help combat this overheating issue, and not trying to spend even more on this system. Additional info: CPU idles at 28-40c at 21.1C ambient. When gaming, my CPU was hitting 96C playing The Division 2 and Modern Warfare, before I shut it down. Specs: CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K Mobo: ASUS Prime Z390-P RAM: 32GB (8x4GB) Crucial Ballistix Sport @ 3000mhz GPU: PNY nVidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super (blower style) Cooling: Some cheap CoolerMaster 129mm aio Fans: 2 Fractal 120mm, 4 Apevia fans If any other information is needed, please let me know.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin March 2020 The clock speeds on your 9700k are very normal actually, the base frequency is 3.6GHz but the max turbo-boost for the 9700k is 4.9GHz which it will boost to automatically as temperatures allow. Your idle temperatures are fine, but hitting 90+ in gaming is pretty darn high. That's thermal-throttling territory which means reduced performance from your CPU. First things first would be to replace the thermal paste and make sure the cooler is nice and snug on your CPU. You could also try setting a more aggressive curve for the CPU fan in your BIOS or via controlling software and see if that helps.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Camco ✭ March 2020 Alright, I suppose that makes a bit of sense for the speeds. I've replaced the thermal paste twice actually. The first time was because I wasn't sure of the factory application, and turns out it looked like someone used 3/4 of a tube of paste on it, and the second time, to ensure I had a snug fit.  The Bios on this mobo has been a pain, but I did set more aggressive curves, and still getting up there in temps. About 20 minutes ago, from this comment, my AIO made a weird noise, and sounded like it came from the pump. Not sure what it was, but nothing I've heard before. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin March 2020 Is the pump actually plugged into the CPU fan header or the AIO pump header on your board? If it's not, try moving it to that and setting the speed to be 100% and see if it makes a significant difference. The pump should be running at 100% all the time really. If that doesn't help, then I'm going to say it's likely the pump on your cooler is going out, especially if it's making strange noises.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Camco ✭ March 2020 After talking to a buddy of mine, he told me to do exactly what you stated. It was plugged into the pump header, so we changed it out. Was still getting terrible temps. Ordered a Noctua NH-U12 Chromax, which came in the mail today (technically yesterday now), and I dropped from mid 90s to barely over 70C in most cases, with a fairly aggressiveness curve. I am going to assume the AIO in my prebuilt was just bad as they apparently do NOT test their full systems before selling. Either way, problem solved. Thanks for the insight, got me learning a few things these past two days.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin March 2020 Yep, that sounds about right. Probably a bad pump leading to bad circulation.

The Wyze Watch can only control Wyze devices. The Wyze Band had Alexa and could control any device linked to your Alexa account. That being said... It's still a great watch for $30. It has an oximeter, tracks sleep, tracks steps, tracks heart rate, controls Wyze devices, displays phone calls and allows you to reject the call, and it shows you text messages. Now they just need to do a $50 Wyze Watch Plus or something with a microphone and speaker to do audible alarms and bring back the Alexa functionality from the Wyze Band. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 997 The Blog 34 What's Trending 156 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 5 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 76 Reviews & Buying Guides 23 Build Showcase 11 Contests 33 Past Contests 717 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 18 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

That’s hardly the case today: Laptops have come a long, long way in recent years, with massive advances in mobile hardware technology – driven in no small part by the smartphone revolution – resulting in an exponential increase in on-chip transistor density. Those of you familiar with Moore’s Law are already aware of this phenomenon. What it means, in layman’s terms, is that computing hardware (namely, CPUs and GPUs) have grown smaller while becoming more powerful and considerably cheaper relative to their raw processing power. Gaming laptops have benefited heavily from this, and today’s machines can easily offer desktop-like performance when it comes to running the latest AAA games at high settings. More good news is that if you’re on a budget, you’ve got plenty of options available to you for less than a grand. If you’re willing to pay more, however, then you can enjoy features like 4K displays and hardware specs that rival those of the most elite custom-built desktops. There’s a lot to consider before you spend your hard-earned cash, though, so we’re here to help you make the right choice with this gaming laptop buying guide. Read on: Lenovo Legion 5 What are the best budget gaming laptops? If we classify “budget gaming laptops” as anything that costs less than $1,000, you’ve got a decent number of options available to you. You can usually expect to pay at least $700 for a good budget gaming laptop outside of big seasonal sales; at this price point, you’ll get a machine with an Intel Core i5 or Ryzen 5 CPU, an Nvidia GTX 1650-series GPU, 8GB of RAM, and fairly modest storage options (a 256GB SSD is standard). Those are basic but perfectly respectable specs if you don’t want to spend too much but want to enjoy good performance playing modern games – just don’t expect to run the latest AAA titles at “ultra” settings. Moving into the $700-$1,000 range will net you upgrades such as Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 processors, Nvidia GTX 1660-series or Radeon 5000M-series mobile GPUs, and increased storage. Keep your eyes open for machines packing 16GB of RAM here as well. That’s a nice sweet spot for a budget gaming laptop that isn’t too basic. Tip-toeing up to the $1,000 mark and beyond, you definitely shouldn’t settle for less than the specs stated above (Intel Core i7 and AMD Ryzen 7 CPUs, 512GB SSDs, and 16GB of RAM at least). At around a grand, though, you should look out for an Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti or Radeon 5600M GPU; better yet, you might even be able to score one with a GTX 2060 graphics card around this price if you get lucky. You can find some very good budget gaming laptops from Acer, Asus, Lenovo, HP, MSI, and Dell, to name a handful of the most popular brands. Buying a refurbished gaming laptop is another solid way to stretch your dollar even further if you’re willing to do that. Just be sure you’re getting one that’s been refurbished by professionals (ideally by the original manufacturer). Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55-54Q0 with RTX 2060 What are the best gaming laptops, no price restrictions? If money is no object then the gaming laptop world is your oyster. Core i9 and Ryzen 9 CPUs, Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-series and 30-series GPUs, 16GB-32GB of RAM, and massive1TB solid-state drives are all readily available to you in the $1,000-$2,500 range. The higher-end AMD Radeon 5000-series cards are also a good buy here, but just like with cheap gaming laptops, these are less common than Nvidia’s offerings. Don’t just limit yourself to the best hardware, though. The top gaming laptops are increasingly sporting value-added features like 4K displays to let you get the most out of those bleeding-edge specs. These also aren’t always as expensive as you might think, which is good news considering the premiums that Ultra HD desktop monitors still command. High-end gaming laptops include models from brands like Razer and Alienware, as well as premium offerings from aforementioned makers including MSI, Lenovo, and Acer, among others. These machines are definitely enthusiast-tier, and while they’re impressive, you do start to hit diminishing returns on your dollar past a certain price point. However, that more powerful hardware will provide a lot of future-proofing for playing demanding AAA games for years to come. Razer Blade 15 How do I choose a gaming laptop? Choosing the right gaming laptop for you is much like any other purchase: It’s going to come down to balancing your needs and wants with your budget. You likely already have a pretty good idea of what you’re willing to spend and what sort of games you like to play, and these will guide your decision more than anything. We’ll get into the nitty gritty regarding specs later, but know that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a decent gaming laptop capable of running modern titles reasonably well. For casual games like Fortnite, any budget gaming laptop with a modern GPU will do what you want. If you want to run the latest and greatest titles at “high” to “ultra” settings, and you want to do it for years to come, you’ll need to increase your budget – but don’t get too carried away. You can’t really upgrade gaming laptops like you can desktops which means you’re pretty much stuck with the hardware you have. Even today’s most cutting-edge GPUs won’t be cutting-edge five years from now. You’re also not going to have that $2,500 gaming laptop forever. How long do you plan to keep it before upgrading to a newer one? Factor that into your purchase decision. Calculating a per-year cost can help you visualize how much value you’re actually getting for your dollar. It’s easy to get so bogged down in hardware specifications that you overlook design elements that relate to everyday use. How’s the keyboard? Will you carry the laptop from place to place frequently, or will it spend most of its time in one spot? How large and heavy is it? Do you also plan to do lots of work, such as typing, on your gaming laptop? What accessories, if any, do you intend to use? (We recommend buying a gaming mouse, at the very least.) Do you plan to connect the laptop to an external display? What ports does it have for these, and how many? Acer Predator Triton 300 Look at pictures and read reviews to get a good idea of what actually using the laptop every day might feel like. Customer reviews written by people who own that particular model are especially helpful here. Also decide if you plan to do any maintenance or upgrades (such as adding more RAM or a bigger SSD) to your laptop yourself. YouTube is a useful resource here, as you can find complete tear-down videos if you’re the DIY type. Consider thermal performance as well; this is something that’s not often listed on a spec sheet. You want a laptop with a good cooling system (ideally a dual-fan setup) so it won’t run uncomfortably or even dangerously hot while under load. Gaming is a demanding task even for full-sized hardware. Those components only run hotter when they’re sized-down and jammed into a tight laptop chassis. What should I look for in a gaming laptop? The primary consideration when shopping for a gaming laptop is naturally going to be its hardware capabilities, but don’t focus so heavily on things like GPU and RAM that you overlook other important features. Since hardware is the most important thing, though, it’s a good idea to understand the basics and the current market landscape. The main components of a gaming laptop are the CPU, graphics card or GPU, and RAM. You’re likely already at least somewhat familiar with these, but if you haven’t gone PC shopping in awhile, you might not be acquainted with the latest and greatest hardware that the top gaming laptops are packing today. The CPU, or central processing unit, is essentially the “brain” of the computer and does most of the heavy lifting when it comes to running programs (or processes, hence the “processor” moniker), at least outside of gaming. CPU selection is more important if you’re building a PC from scratch, but with pre-built systems such as gaming laptops, processors are typically paired accordingly with GPUs – that is, a gaming laptop isn’t likely to sport a beefy graphics card only to have a woefully under-powered processor. Since GPU selection is the most important thing when choosing a gaming laptop, we won’t get too far into the weeds regarding CPUs here, but it’s still good to have a basic grasp of what’s out there. A good modern gaming laptop will sport a 10th- or 11th-gen Intel Core i5, i7, or i9 CPU, or, less commonly, an AMD Ryzen 5, 7, or 9 processor. Any of those are pretty much good to go and will be paired with a comparable GPU. Which combo you get will naturally depend on how much you’re spending. You could call the GPU the “heart” of a gaming laptop, but it’d be more accurate to think of it it as a second brain. The GPU, or graphics processing unit (more commonly called a graphics card), is basically another processor, but one devoted fully to handling demanding graphical tasks such as rendering 3D visuals. A GPU is also useful for things like rendering videos and 3D models, though, so these aren’t employed only by gamers. For gaming, the GPU is arguably even more important than the CPU, as a sub-par graphics card will bottleneck your system faster than anything. (If you’ve ever built a gaming desktop, you know that the GPU is usually the most expensive part of the entire build.) There are only two names in the graphics card game: Nvidia, which is by far the most common in gaming laptops, and AMD, which has recently been expanding its mobile GPU lineup. MSI GP66 Leopard with RTX 3070 Some gamers have surprisingly strong feelings about Nvidia vs. AMD, but honestly, either one will suit you fine – just compare benchmarks between cards available in your price bracket and get the best one you can afford. Bear in mind, however, that mobile GPUs are not identical to their full-sized desktop counterparts. When shopping for a gaming laptop and comparing graphics cards, make sure you’re actually looking at the mobile GPU variants. Modern GPUs include Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 16 series (1650, 1660, and their upgraded “Super” and “Ti” variants), the GTX 20 series (2060, 2070, 2080) and AMD’s Radeon RX 5000M series (5500M, 5600M, 5700M, etc.). Nvidia’s latest GTX 30-series cards are also rolling out in high-end gaming laptops now, so keep your eyes peeled for those if money is no object. Both Nvidia and AMD are in a constant arms race to release the newest, hottest GPUs, so do your research before you buy – a new line could be just around the corner and it might be worth waiting a little longer. “RAM” stands for “random access memory” (or just “memory” for short) and, as its name implies, works much like your own brain’s short-term memory. In layman’s terms, ongoing tasks and processes are stored in the RAM for quick recall. You could say that your PC’s RAM simply “remembers things” if you want to strain the brain analogies a bit further. All you really need to know about RAM, however, is that more is better. You won’t find less than 8GB even on budget gaming laptops nowadays, and 16GB is a nice sweet spot on the price-to-performance spectrum. On high-end gaming laptops, 32GB is common, although you’re not likely to see (or need) more than that. Bear in mind that in most cases, you can add more RAM yourself, but if this is something you’d like to do, do some research and make sure a particular laptop you’re eyeing supports such DIY upgrades. A couple final notes on RAM: The current standard memory type is DDR4, but this is not likely something you’ll have to worry about. A little more important is clock speed. The RAM you’ll most commonly see on gaming laptops has a clock speed of between 2600MHz and 3200MHz. Higher is better, but don’t let this be a deal breaker if you find a laptop that you really like and it fits in your budget. Also know that 8GB of 3200MHz DDR4 RAM is not superior to 16GB of 2600MHz DDR4 RAM – more RAM is always more desirable. Those are the most essential things under the hood, but the exterior components of the gaming laptop are also important. Most vital among these is the display, and they are not all created equal. IPS, VA, and TN are the three most common panel types used for computer monitors, and IPS and VA (not WVA, which does not actually refer to panel type) are what you’ll typically find on gaming laptops. IPS displays offer the best viewing angles and highest degree of color accuracy and are generally considered the best of the three common panel types, but fall behind the others with regards to input lag. TN has the poorest picture but the fastest response times. VA falls somewhere in the middle, with superior picture quality to TN but better response times than IPS. However, unless having the lowest possible input lag is vital, we generally recommend IPS displays for their superior picture quality. Otherwise, VA is fine. TN is best avoided. MSI Creator 17 with 4K Display Also consider refresh rate. Measured in hertz (Hz), refresh rate determines the maximum frame rate you can play games smoothly at. The general rule is that your frame rate should be set at about half (or less) of your refresh rate. That means that for gaming at 60 frames per second, you want a display with a 120Hz-144Hz refresh rate. Pushing a game’s frame rate higher than what your monitor can handle will cause stuttering and screen-tearing. Even budget gaming laptops are increasingly sporting 120Hz-144Hz displays, so opt for that if it’s an option. The top gaming laptops often have even higher rates of 240Hz-300Hz (which are paired with the best GPUs that will allow you to actually get the most out of that). Only settle for 60Hz if you’re on a tight budget and/or you only plan to game at 30fps. We’ll end on a final note about screen resolution: The vast majority of gaming laptops are 1080p (Full HD), but an increasing number of higher-end machines now feature 4K displays. These sail well north of $1,000 (often closer to $2,000), and while they’re nice, bear in mind you’re still playing on a smaller screen and aren’t likely to enjoy that Ultra HD resolution as much as you would on, say, a 30+ inch ultrawide monitor. We suggest prioritizing better internal hardware first and only spending more for a 4K display if the laptop’s other specs justify the price. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

From automated vacuum cleaners to smart scales, Wyze can make almost every aspect of your home smarter and easier to use. I recently created my own smart home for under $150, and here’s how you can too. What Do I Need to Create a Smart Home?  WiFi An internet-connect smart device (Alexa, Google Home, or any smartphone) That’s it - if you’ve got these two things, you’re good to start making your home smarter! But before you do, you should plan out what your smart home will look like. How to Plan Your Smart Home  The big question to ask when planning your smart home is “what are you looking to automate or control?” If you just want to add an automatic vacuum, you won’t need any additional devices. But if you want to create a full smart home with color-changing lighting, you’ll need to do a bit more planning. For example: while most light sources have replaceable bulbs that are compatible with Wyze’s light bulbs, lamps with unconventional lighting styles, such as lighting strips, can’t make use of Wyze Bulbs. However, they can still be connected to your smart home via Wyze Smart Plugs. It’s also important to know what you’re looking to do with your smart home. If you just want remote control of your home, any Wyze smart home device will work. But if you’re looking to add color to your bulbs, the standard Wyze Bulbs don’t allow for color customizations. Quick Questions Before Making your Home Wyze: What device(s) am I looking to make smart? Can I make this device smart - IE does my lamp take standard light bulbs? How smart do I want to make it - RGB smart or just remote access smart? The $150 Smart Set-Up My home recently got the Wyze makeover, turning almost every light in my house smart (some with RGB!), adding home security cameras, and outdoor lighting control, all controllable from my watch. Let’s break down my new smart home: 2x Wyze LED Smart Home Colored Light BulbWyze LED Smart Home Colored Light Bulb - Two-Pack I wanted to spruce up my living room and bedroom, so I went big with four Wyze Colored Light Bulbs, creating two rooms with complete lighting control. Remote power, dimming, and color adjustments, as well as custom schedules and vacation mode, so your home looks busy even when no one is there. 1x Wyze Smart PlugWyze Smart Plug - Two-Pack While planning for my smart home revolution, I realized I did have a lamp I wanted to be smart, but it had multiple bulbs connected to a single base. So rather than use multiple bulbs, I just attached it to a Smart Plug. It gives me all the remote control of a Wyze Bulb, including schedules and vacation mode, without the dimming or color control. 1x Wyze Plug Outdoor As someone whose apartment’s outdoor lighting is less-than-sufficient, additional lighting is a must. The Wyze Plug Outdoor functions identically to the Wyze Smart Plug, giving me remote access to my outdoor lights as well as schedules and vacation mode. 1x Wyze Cam V3 The Wyze Cam v3 is an incredible home security camera, offering motion alerts, sound alerts, and playback recording. It also works with an SD card for local recording, if you don’t want your video uploaded to the cloud. We put out a full review and breakdown, which you can read here. 1x Wyze Watch 47mm The Wyze Watch is a fantastic budget smartwatch on its own, but when you have Wyze Smart Devices, it becomes a utility powerhouse. Delivering all the functionality expected of a smart watch and the ability to control your smart home, the Wyze Watch is absolutely a must-include for a Wyze home. Altogether, the set-up runs around $150 to deck pretty much my whole house out in smart home devices from Wyze. So let’s get ‘em set up! Setting Up Your Wyze Smart Home While each device connects slightly differently (but all equally easily), the first step is consistent across all Wyze devices: download the app. From there, you’ll need to create a Wyze account. This will both unify your devices as well as enable you to reconnect them easily if you move, get a new phone, or just make some home changes. Next, select the device you want to add and follow the instructions presented on screen. Going into setting up each device would quickly become tedious to read, but I can safely say that every device I had to set up was quick and intuitive, usually consisting of a button press, entering your WiFi password, and then naming the device. Once you have a device connected to your WiFi, you’ll get access to the suite of options each device offers, such as schedules and motion detection. You can even chain events across multiple devices, like setting up your lights to turn on when your Wyze Cam detects motion. It took me around half an hour to set up all the Bulbs, Plugs, and Cams in my house, and around another half an hour to fine-tune them all to the settings I wanted. An hour to completely turn your home smart isn’t bad at all! Connecting your Wyze Smart Devices to Alexa and Google Home You can control your whole house from the Wyze app on your phone if you don’t have an in-home smart assistant, but if you want to walk into a room and tell Alexa to turn on the lights, you’ll need to link Wyze up with an assistant. How to Connect Wyze to Google Home Open the Google Home app and tap on the ‘+’ in the upper left corner Select ‘Set Up Device’ Select ‘Works with Google’ Choose Wyze from the list and log into the Wyze account you created How to Connect Wyze to Amazon Alexa Open the Wyze app and tap on ‘Account’  in the bottom right corner Tap ‘Smart Integrations’ Select ‘Alexa’ Select ‘Link’ and login to your Alexa-associated Amazon account Or Enable the Wyze skill in the Alexa app Log in to your Wyze account  Add your devices to Alexa The Wyze Watch  If you’re looking to control your home from your wrist, that’s where the Wyze Watch comes in. Offering the full functionality of smartwatches, including alert notifications, step tracking, heartbeat monitoring, and a host of others, the Wyze Watch also works with or independently of smart home assistants to control your home. Simply set up shortcuts in the Wyze app and they’ll automatically be uploaded to your watch. Once you've created a few shortcuts, you have instant and immediate access to all of your devices. Want to turn a light on? Change the brightness? Enable your Wyze Cam? Even upload a video from your Cam to the cloud? It's all on your wrist, accessible with a single button press. The battery on the Wyze Watch lasts for around a week as well, which isn’t super relevant to the smart home discussion, but impressive enough that I couldn’t not mention it. The Smart Home Experience Now that I had my Wyze smart home entirely set up, I could sit back and enjoy it. And it’s pretty nice! Being able to walk into a room and turn on all lights to the exact setting I want with a single command is fantastic. Schedules mean I don’t have to wake up to a dark home every day, and it has saved me from stepping on my dogs more than once. And the schedules work with Google Routines and Amazon Routines, so you won't have to set up multiple. I’ve found multiple uses for the Wyze Cam, beyond security. It’s nice to be able to keep an eye on your home while you’re away at work, but it’s also really nice to be able to watch your dogs and scold them through the Wyze Cam’s microphone feature when they threaten to get in the trash.  Of course, these were things I was expecting to love. What I hadn’t considered was how nice it was to have multiple ways to access your home devices. In a non-smart home, you’ll usually only have a single switch for a light. With a smart home, I have my phone, my Wyze Watch, and my Google Home Speaker, so no matter where I am or what I have nearby, I can make adjustments to my home on the fly. Make Your Home Even Smarter But this setup is just the start. Once you see how easy life can be with a smart home, you might start wondering if you couldn’t make your door lock, or thermostat, or even your vacuum smart and I have good news for you: Wyze has all that and more. Set up your home to automate everything! Turn on your lights when you unlock the door, run a vacuum during the day when everyone is away, know who’s at your door without getting up from the couch. Even automate your security lights and sprinkler systems! Be sure to check out all Wyze has to offer at your local Micro Center! Win my Smart Home Setup!

My bedroom has an outlet that's in the perfect location for a floor lamp but it's on the far side of the room from the door and not controlled by a switch. It'd be really nice to be able to have a controllable light, especially in the evening, so I could have a nicely lit bedroom without having to stumble across it to turn it on. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook sweetbee52 ✭ June 11 I would love and outdoor cam and spotlight.

It'd be much more convenient for me to view the cameras through a phone/computer app with more peace of mind that my home is safe and secure. I've been researching various cameras and smart home products from Amcrest, Ring, and Wyze but the Wyze's v3 cameras really seem to appeal to me with a colored, brighter night vision view after seeing visual comparisons online. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Doctor_Doug ✭ June 11 Wow ... my dream smart home appliance? Well, it would be AI, WiFi Dog Butler! Part 1 would notice when the dog is at the back door and wants to go out and open the door to let him in and out. Part 2 would keep track of when the dog's bowl or water is low and keep track of the times when he eats. Part 3 would be a bed with a mechanical hand and voice to pet and tell him "good boy" when we were out of the house. Part 4 would be a Robo-vac which would surveil him and vac up his shedding.

First, I am terrified a wild animal will come into my home. Second, one of my fur babies is just 4 pounds and she can go through the door, she would prefer it to be open and lastly, I wouldn’t have to remove the metal door (open or close) each morning and night. Being disabled, and living with chronic pain, opening and closing the secure door each day can be difficult at times. i have recently thought about getting some Smart light bulbs and plugs.

Also want to see if I can without reinstalling windows. BC795 ✭ June 2020 in Windows So as it says in the title, I am planning on having my motherboard swapped at Micro center. I am making this post because I wanted to try calling the store, but every time I tried calling these past two weeks, the hold line was always full, so I'm trying again here on the community page. I have done some research that this is a risky thing to do since booting on dissimilar hardware could damage the windows installation, especially if one mobo is AMD and the other is Intel. While mine are both AMD, my new motherboard is from a different manufacturer. These are the specs for each: Old: Mobo - ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA CPU - AMD FX-8350 GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 960 New: Mobo - MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 3600 GPU - MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Super For further info, I started with an OEM copy of Windows 7 when I first built my computer in 2016, but after I upgraded to Windows 10, my license became tied to my Microsoft account, which according to this, should be fine. I do hear that most people would just reinstall Windows due to something about the boot drivers possibly conflicting, but not only would that mean having to reinstall every program I have, I would also lose Windows Image Viewer (which carries over from 7) as I do not like 10's default program for viewing images. Additionally, there do seem to be ways to do a swap and keep your installation as shown here, here, and here, but I also want to be walked through the most reliable way of doing so, especially since I don't want to uninstall the wrong things with the latter two, as they involve uninstalling your old drivers before doing anything. I also want to know if I can just simply load a system image on the reinstallation process if I do have to go through with that, or if Sysprep works with Windows 10. Sorry if this is a lot, since this is something I really want to be careful about. Any help would be appreciated, thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin June 2020 The best answer we're going to be able to give you here is probably, maybe. There are a couple of factors to consider. First windows 10 is definitely an improvement. Windows 7 would boot or crash and that was it. Windows 10 will at least halt the startup and it will install your new hardware or at least attempt to, like on an initial installation. Windows 10 generally does fine with this, but it's never guaranteed. Main thing to watch out for that will cause a BSOD is your storage controller mode. Check the old BIOS and see if it's in PATA/IDE, AHCI or RAID. You should match this on your new board. It can be changed later on, with Windows 10 you just need to get into safe mode and it'll boot fine then automatically install a driver for the storage controller type. The one to watch out for is the PATA/IDE, it won't exist on your new board. If you run into that, let it crash until you're in the recovery environment, then go into safe mode. If it boots, it'll load a driver. You'll most likely be in AHCI though. I looked at the first guide you linked. They do reference what I mentioned about the storage controller modes. In Windows 7 you had to edit the registry in safe mode to fix this, Windows 10 does it automatically. It looks like they're suggesting creating a backup image first. However, it's a cloned image. If the install crashes on startup, the image is going to do the exact same thing. It is a good idea to have a backup just in case though. Sysprep is for repacking installs. You'd use in a fresh install if you were installing software for someone then wanted to repack it so they could have the out of box experience, but still have those programs already installed. Not relevant for what we're doing here. It is still present on Windows 10 though, works the same as it did before. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BC795 ✭ June 2020 edited June 2020 TSMikeW said: Main thing to watch out for that will cause a BSOD is your storage controller mode.

Also, I checked my BIOS, and the storage controller is on AHCI. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSKyleH admin February 6 BC795 said: TSMikeW said: Main thing to watch out for that will cause a BSOD is your storage controller mode.

The one to watch out for is the PATA/IDE, it won't exist on your new board. If you run into that, let it crash until you're in the recovery environment, then go into safe mode. If it boots, it'll load a driver. You'll most likely be in AHCI though. Thank you. and if I do have to switch the storage controllers, I can just switch it back to something else once it's up and running, right? Also, I checked my BIOS, and the storage controller is on AHCI. I would recommend leaving the AHCI controller, there isn't a reason to change this in most cases. All motherboards should have this as its a very known default. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.5K All Categories 997 The Blog 27 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 718 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 66 Consumer Tech 17 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 71 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 47 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 157 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 18 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Besides that, processor wise, for just gaming the next processor up would be the 9900k which wouldn't be a big benefit for gaming, if really much any and would jump about $130 in price for that as well. Windows is included in the build price as well, so it comes to a little over $1500 before taxes as-is.

Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin November 2020 Hello @Bbear Your 3600X comes with a stock cooler that should outperform the NH-L9i or be on par.  The Low Profile Cooler is great for very small ITX builds and is usually a specialized cooler.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BuffaloBill68 ✭ November 2020 I presently have Ryzen 5 2600x in a new B550t mobo. I have $300 earmarked for a CPU upgrade, and am seeing the new Ryzen 5600x as the logical choice. Of course even AMD on-line does not have it available for purchase just yet, and am impatiently waiting for availability. I compared the 5600x with the existing previous gen 3800xt (which is also $300 right now) ..... depending on which comparison I look at, both have advantages, but of course the 5600x is NEWEST GENERATION ..... should I just be patient and wait for the 5600x to show up? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 If you're just gaming, I'd wait for the 5600X. It's improvements in individual core performance make it the top choice in my book. You're right to mention that they both have their advantages. It would really depend on your workload. As I mentioned, if it's solely for gaming, I think your best choice is to wait for the 5600X. I hope this helps! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook michael_jc95 ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 I want to build my first PC for gaming up to 1440p on a 34" Ultrawide and video editing. Unfortunately, all the next gen CPUs and GPUs are nearly impossible to get a hold of. I was looking to get the either the R9 5900x w/ RTX 3080 or R7 5800x w/ RTX 3070, but after going down numerous rabbit holes of reserach, I'm not sure what I even need anymore to make this happen. If you could also recommend some Ultrawide monitors, that'd be great. My budget on monitors goes up to about $700 at the very most. EDIT: I also have the GIGABYTE G34WQC in mind but after watching some reviews, G-Sync causes flickering. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 edited November 2020 Personally, I'm a fan of the AOC 34in 144hz monitor or the LG 34in 75hz. Any recent generation CPU pair with a current-generation GPU. Here's a video with some expected FPS based at 3440x1440p I'd typically recommend a 3080 if you're going for 144hz, or 3070 if you're going for 75hz.

But if you want to make the most of your big screen TV, your iPad, MacBook, smartphone, and desktop monitor, you need to keep the screen clean. Ditch the dust, swipe away the smudges, and sanitize the stains with these handy tips on how to clean TV screens, laptop screens, and more. A word of warning before we begin, however. There are many glass cleaning and general cleaning products which may seem like a good fit for electronics too: they are not. Modern devices, especially touch screens, are designed with a very careful balance of materials, and the harsh chemicals in some cleaning sprays can permanently damage them or mar the display. The best way to clean TV screens and other devices is to use a combination of lint-free microfiber cloths and proper cleaning fluids. You can also leverage air dusters and soft-bristled brushes to remove particularly stubborn dirt, dust, and debris that's caught in the bezels of the display. Here are some cleaning tips for every screen in your home so they look as good as new. Find all your screen-cleaning tools at microcenter.com How to Clean TV Screens As the biggest screen in your home, it's often more obvious that your TV screen needs cleaning before any others. Before you begin, make sure to turn your TV off at the wall and ideally, remove the plug to be sure. Make sure to leave it for 15-minutes to cool down (especially if it's an older Plasma TV). The best way to clean TV screens is when they're cold, as a warm display can lead to streaks when the cleaning solution evaporates. It might seem simple, but knowing how to clean TV screens properly when they're dusty is important. Don't just use any old paper towels, or anything with paper in it, in fact. The fibers can make small scratches in the sensitive displays of modern TVs. The best way to clean a TV screen is with a microfiber cloth. Take the cloth and gently wipe the screen in a single direction, up to down, left to right – the direction doesn't matter, but be consistent, so that you don't just move the dust around. You can use an air duster to clean the dust from hard-to-reach places, but don't spray it directly at the screen and only spray in short one-second bursts so that condensation doesn't form under the cold spray. If you need to remove stains or splash marks from food or drink, you'll need to use something a little stronger. Don't be tempted to use general cleaning sprays designed for windows or other glass surfaces. Instead, opt for bespoke electronic wipes or cleaning solutions – spray a small amount onto a microfiber cloth (never directly on the screen). They'll safely remove oily marks and will help avoid excess dust build-up in the future. Wipe over the stain in small circular motions, with only light pressure. If it doesn't come away in one go, wait for the screen to dry then try again. Don't be tempted to press harder, as you can damage the display. When you're finished cleaning your screen, let any cleaning solution dry before turning it back on. How to Clean a MacBook Screen The method for how to clean a MacBook screen is much the same as for any laptop, tablet, or flat-screen TV. Microfiber cloths, or bespoke cleaning display cleaning wipes with anti-static protection and no alcohol or ammonia, are a must. They ensure that the screen is cleaned safely without scratches or smears. If you use a cleaning gel or spray, make sure to apply it to the microfiber cloth, not the screen itself. Only a small amount is necessary – don't' saturate the cloth or you risk leaving streaks on the screen after cleaning As with the guide on how to clean TV screens, make sure that the MacBook is switched off and unplugged from the charger before cleaning. It's also a good idea to let it cool down first. Wipe away dust in straight, uniform strokes across the screen, and use gentle circular motions to remove any stains or splash marks. How to Clean a Computer Screen  Desktop computer monitors are just slightly bigger versions of laptop displays, so the same method for how to clean a MacBook screen will work just fine on a computer monitor. Grab a lint-free microfiber cloth and brush across the surface of the screen in long, straight strokes to remove any dust. Some may get stuck around the bezel at the edge of the screen. To remove it, either use an air duster, or you can use a specially formulated duster brush with soft bristles. For stains, streaks, or fluid marks, you'll need to use a cleaning solution specially formulated for use with sensitive displays. Spray the solution onto the microfiber cloth once or twice (never on the screen directly) and then use gentle pressure and a small circular motion to remove the mark. Let it dry afterward, and if any marks are left, repeat the process with a clean portion of the cloth. Alternatively, one use screen cleaning wipes can be the best way to clean a computer monitor. You can simply remove one from the pack and wipe down your screen without the need for any additional spray. How to Clean an iPad Screen Apple iPads, Android tablets, and touchscreen Windows devices don't use a particularly different screen technology from other electronics, but where they do differ is the amount of interaction you have with them. Since you're touching them all day every day, they tend to build up grease, fingerprints, and potentially bacteria and viruses more than devices where your input is a keyboard, mouse, or touchpad. That doesn't mean you have to clean them any differently, but you should definitely clean them more often. Here's how to clean an iPad screen to make sure it stays clear, bright, and germ-free. As with cleaning other electronics, the best way to clean an iPad screen is with a microfiber cloth. Apple iPad screens are oil repellent, so everyday grease from fingers can come away easily enough with a dry wipe. If, however, you find that your iPad is particularly dirty, or its repellent effects have diminished over time, you can augment your microfiber cloth's cleaning ability with an anti-static cleaning fluid. You can buy those items individually, or opt for an all-in-one screen cleaning kit that comes with its own microfiber cloth and cleaning solution, as well as its own handy storage solution. Spray a little cleaning solution onto the microfiber cloth, then wipe down your iPad screen in one direction. If you need to pay particular attention to any marks, stains, or grime, perform gentle, circular motions with the cloth. If it doesn't come away the first time, don't press harder. Let it dry, then start again with another spray of the cleaning fluid. It will come away eventually. As an alternative, you can use screen-cleaning wipes that are ammonia and alcohol-free. They can be great if you find yourself wondering how to clean an iPad screen on the go, because you don't need to carry a bottle of cleaning fluid with you. Display wipes are a compact way to always be able to clean your screen without worrying about leaving streaks after you're done. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments evfossum01 USA-Colorado ✭ May 21 Dang, this is helpful.
