    Win10 usb install stuck on blue window screen

    I Bought an RTX 3060 Ti Today!

    I vote we continue to blame miners for this. Prices never recovered after the previous boom. Looks like we might be in the third coming off Bitcoin madness

    Nvidia's Plan for ARM to Take X86 's Throne | Exclusive

    Is ARM not a European company? Why did we end up talking about China? China gets no say here.

    Building computer for little brother

    Buy a decent case and PSU (650W or better from reputable brand[seasonic, corsair, my two votes]). I would suggest an AMD 550 motherboard, and a Ryzen 3 3100, along with an Nvidia 1650. 16 gb of ddr4 ram dual channel kit, 3200mhz (if you can afford it, get the 3600mhz kit, its the sweet spot)...

    Can a Gaming PC get by with stock or smaller CPU cooler/

    intel stock coolers suck, but work. AMD stock coolers are just fine. short answer is yes. just use the stock cooler. long answer, there is a small amount of additional performance and you can make it quieter at the same time, provided you pay for it by purchasing a bigger badder cooler. If...

    Agree to disagree on this. Quantum computing isnt likely either, but sure as hell ARM is not replacing X86. Its just not better.

    Python has not replaced C. Python is most popular because its easy. The machines that make all of the other things you like and use every day, do not run Python.

    Nvidia's Plan for ARM to Take X86 's Throne | Exclusive

    Reading some of these posts as well, I just want to point out, we all like to refer to our computers as "fast". They are slow AF. Challenger Hellcat is fast. F22 is fast. Falcon Rockets are fast. Computers don't move. # of operations per second is relative and extremely complex based on...

    Yeah this isn't going to be a thing. Never. Remember when AMD was going to switch to ARM? They smartened the hell up and made a real cpu.

    2 gamers, 1 box?

    What I was hoping was that a ryzen 3800 or 3900 might be enough, its a drop in to my current mobo, and if upgrade ram to 32GB I can eliminate a box, while possibly still affording to upgrade my GPU. I think however I'll treat it as a fun experiment, and not start out as a "this will replace a...

    Battlefield VI

    Fair enough. But it wasn't bf3 bad. In comparison I remember it being an improvement. Was likely still hot garbage.

    Dont forget BF4 was only good because it was the re-release of BF3 after they unfucked it.

    Battlefield VI

    Battlelog was a steaming pile. Exit the game to use the web for a server browser. Not wrong. Now if they say, integrated it into the game, it wouldn't have been shit, but it wasnt, it was shit.

    PC Partpicker (Estimated Wattage)

    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    Why is Vulkan harder to run than OGL and DX?

    Vulkan is based on mantle which was originally an AMD only API. The 1080 may not even properly support Vulkan, it is relatively new. Just thoughts

    Why is my pc shutting off?

    only time i've ever gotten straight up reboots from gaming has been heat related. Either the CPU or GPU. Could be as simple as a cable caught in a fan causing it to not spin (legit happened). Oh and should add I once installed a cpu fan blowing the wrong way. That took a really long time to...

    PC Grinding noise narrowed down, please advice

    The physics behind coil whine are complex. It is possible that your an isolated case where the specific combination of components in your build are interacting negatively. If that's the case I'm afraid Asus might not even respond. Asus has a bad rep around here regarding honouring warranties.

    PC Grinding noise narrowed down, please advice

    AFAIK all UPSes have power filters, so you should be getting good power, and if it gets bad it should automatically switch over to the battery and inverter. Keep us posted. Weird sound from PC parts (at least not a fan or HDD).

    PC Grinding noise narrowed down, please advice

    If that's coming from the GPU power components, wow. Past experience tells me when PC components start talking like that, expect them to go bye bye soon. Do you have any way to test your power at the wall? Is it possible your getting dirty power? I've also never heard anything like that...

    PWM fans can also get screwy if they start getting improper PWM signals. That's the only way I can see this being software related

    PC Grinding noise narrowed down, please advice

    HDDs make terrible sounds on their way out. Hope you have good back ups. Psu fans can fail and make terrible noises as well. Process of elimination is the only way. Start unplugging things. You can boot your system with your HDD disconnected, you just won't load anything past the bios.

    More research suggests unraid is not the correct software. Possibly this is just a bad idea.
