I need to buy an SSD and where i live prices are a bit high. I will use it mainly for gaming. Which one would you choose of the below options?
- ADATA XPG SX6000 Pro 1TB: $152
- WD Black SN750 with Heatsink 500GB: $145
- Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB: $143
I gain double the storage with the ADATA, but the other two seems way better in quality and speeds.
I was gifted a 10TB external hard drive a little while ago and I was curious to know if it is possible to mount the external drive on to the top of my tower.
I have a lot of screw holes on the top so it should not be an issue making a bracket of some sort to the top of the case.
I am looking for a cheap headset with microphone built-in. Comfort and price are my two biggest concerns and would preferably like to purchase one for below $200.
Can you recommend a 4K HDMI splitter which will carry full 4K/UHD signal from my satellite TV to my projector through a Yamaha RXV581 A/V receiver?
All splitters I have tried locally from Jaycar Electronics will not hold the signal through to my projector although I do get a perfect signal to the Yamaha receiver or directly to the projector. Both audio and video. Signals are being passed through my ceiling and walls via a 20-meter Fibre optic HDMI cable. As soon as I try to pass through a splitter 4K/UHD (alleged) 2 in/1 out, the signal drops out?
Thank you for any help.
I built a machine a few months back and it has been running flawless. When I built it, I was tight on cash and purchased a single stick of Vengeance LPX 8GB 3600MHz to get me by. Now that I have a little extra cash, I have decided to add another stick to my build, so I purchased the exact same stick and added it to my PC.
Upon boot, the system ran great, but when gaming, I keep getting a blue screen.
What should I do?
I have 4x 4TB HDDs and I want to build a DIY NAS. I was curious if the H370M from ASRock, i5-8400 and 16GB of DDR4 would be a good start?
I just want this for streaming my media and basic backup storage.
I have a ROG STRIX B450 build running like a champ, my GPU takes up the top slot, but I have a x8 slot under it that I feel I should be using for something to speed up or add functionality to my PC.
What do most people use these for or do they leave them empty?
My first build I got myself an Aorus motherboard, RX580 and Ryzen 3600. In my Corsair Carbide case when I install my GPU, the HDMI ports sit in a position that does not allow my cable to be inserted properly.
Is there anything I can do to fix this or should I take a file to my chassis?
I'm new to PCs and have been researching for my first build and noticed there's never been a mention of how the rear I/O panel should be installed. The small tabs that are on each port on the back of the motherboard, are you supposed to bend them back, or cut them off like plastic model cars?
I'm really confused.
Will installing games on my 2TB SSD slow down Windows and boot times like with old SSDs or is that not an issue anymore with modern drives? Is it worth getting a separate drive for my Windows install?
