    Genshin Impact

    Anyone playing? Turns out the game is awesome and I'm 30ish hours in, still not finished the story and haven't felt the need to spend any money at all. My plan was if I ever got to that point I'd ditch it but so far I'm pleasantly surprised. Real BoTW vibes but the multi character system and...

    Going from Intel to AMD without reinstalling Windows 10

    It was incredible how easy and seamless that was. Went from a 4690k system (pushing 5 years old) to a new R7 2700X. I uninstalled anything in Windows with Intel in the name minus my one Intel SSD's software and shut down. Did the swap and booted back up. While it took a little longer and at the...

    3008WFP owner finally looking to upgrade. PG348Q in my cart. Change my mind?

    I've had my 3008WFP since roughly 2010 when I bought it second hand. To this day it's been my favorite piece of hardware I've ever purchased (at the price I paid for it, it had better be!)

    I'm trying to figure out what processes are using CPU once my screen goes off due to inactivity (10 minutes). I've done some googling and everything is telling me to run perfmon, but while that will log historical CPU usage, it won't tell me the actual processes that are using that CPU. The...

    BF3 crossfire - high framerate but still horrible stutter
