    Router / WiFi Extender Using Ethernet?

    Hi all, Firstly apologies if this is in the wrong place. If so, let me know where I should be posting. I've recently built a home station consisting of two computers, and now I've just set up my console / tv area, but the wifi signal in this part of the house is horrendous. Extenders won't...

    New build opinions!

    Sorry for the late reply on this! Yes, if you're interested I did indeed pull the trigger, but with some changes along the way. The specs I got are as follows: Case: Fractal Design Define S2 Vision Blackout MoBo: ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-F GAMING CPU: i9 10900K RAM: 64GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4...

    New build opinions!

    This is super, super useful thanks for the info! I've done a bit of reading and you're right, I think i'll swap the core to the 10900K and likely go for the Asus Rog Maximus XII Hero MoBo (or similar). Seems to be better bang-for-buck, as it's got Rocket Lake compatibility and it's cheaper...

    New build opinions!

    It'll be 99% for gaming. I don't do any kind of video rendering, 3D or animation work really. I just want to be able to play a lot of games in a very, very high graphic quality, as I will also be investing in monitors soon too! RE the Motherboard, yes I agree it's quite pricey. The one thing I...

    New build opinions!

    Hello all, It's been a while since I built a PC. Roughly 2013 was my last build, and aside from a recent GPU swap, it's lasted unchanged and unbothered since then. It still runs games as a moderate level, however it is slowly but surely dying and as such I find myself back in the market for a...

    Graphics Card Finally Died... Help?

    Thanks for the advice! I think really the issue here is I only have a max budget of £350, and the super / 2070's start at around the 400-450 mark and, given the current climate, I really can't rock the boat too much haha. The card just gave up very suddenly. I started having black squares...

    Graphics Card Finally Died... Help?

    Hi guys, So funnily enough, a few months back I was asking what I could do to upgrade my machine, and a lot of people said GPU would be a good place to start. Well, today my GPU firmly hit the grave so now I have no choice but to get a replacement. Specs as they sit: Intel i7-4770k 3.5ghz Quad...

    Upgrade Recommendations

    Thanks Spartacus! I think you're right, in lieu of not having a few thousand £'s to drop on an entirely new setup, a few hundred on a new GPU might just give me the boost I need for another year or so, until I can afford a complete rebuild! The issue now is where to find one, as I know they're...

    Upgrade Recommendations

    Firstly thanks for all of your suggestions! Some further info as requested: Monitor: ASUS VE278 - I usually play everything at 1080 x 1920 CPU Cooler: Corsair H60 (Old version) PSU: I believe it's either a 500w or 750w Corsair unit. Likely the 750. Currently I've not OC'ed the core at all...

    Upgrade Recommendations

    Hi guys, So I was last really on this forums in 2012 when I built my PC, and it's still going strong being able to run most things smoothly, so I'm a happy boy! But with the latest games coming out requiring more power, I'm finding my PC is falling behind a bit. Certain higher-demanding games I...
