    So what's the best bang for your $100-$200 range wireless router with great wifi range these days?

    Anyone running a clamp on desk style dual monitor mount in a corner?

    I'm looking for a mount that either has more adjustments or is designed for larger monitors to get rid of the very defined V between the monitors but still keep them back toward the wall. The one being used is some old school Roswell special from many years ago. It's claimed to support up to...

    Optimal dual monitor resolution/screen size for productivity usage from a decent 44" distance?

    Dual 23" 1080P just isn't cutting it for my fiance with some programs as the font is a bit small for some things. It's a PITA to keep adjusting font back and forth. By no means does it matter if they are gaming monitors or not considering we are talking Firefox, Facebook, Excel, Messenger...

    Anyone else think it's completely stupid that MS has tied default/store apps and games to a single location?

    Was just checking out the xbox app due to having Game Pass Ultimate. They give an option to select where to install but if it's not already set in the settings to install apps and games to said location you can't install there. I mean seriously what are they doing? Users should be able to...

    So I was benching my new 2070 with Timespy on the 17th. I've had windows update since then and I'm just now getting around to attempting more over the scanner overclock. Might I say they did a good job with that because if I bump the core up to the next notch it crashes Timespy. lol Anyway I...

    Cloning M.2 NVME OS drive to a larger M.2 NVME with one m.2 slot?

    So the time has come to increase my OS drive size. My board does have dual m.2 slots but being MATX the second on is on the back and not in the heatsink installation window unfortunately.
