    Is it normal that on some cases (F-Define R6 my new case) don't work well with all USB drives ?

    My issue is my Kingston 64GB DataTraveler Elite G2 USB thumb drive and a Mushkin thumb can't be used with this case. They worked with my old Fractal case and works with my friends PC also. Also keep in mind that I'm still using the same motherboard as I was before with my old case. But for some...

    So when using a 4K TV for PC gaming, do we still use the TV's Game Mode option ?

    I use my 4K TV for console gaming and PC gaming. So I use the TV's Gaming Mode for whenever I console game. But seeing how I'm using the PC input for source for PC gaming do I still enable Game Mode also ? I'm asking cause the source input is set to PC and by doing that it already grays out some...

    Should I wait till summer for the GTX 1180 or get a 2070 or 2080 now ?

    See sig for PC specs. I currently got a RTX 2060 but I want a little more fps, I'm returning it to the store this week by the way. Should I get a 2070 for 10-15% more fps but for about $200 more. Or get the 2080 and spend $350 for 30-40% increase in fps. The thing I'm worried about is the resale...

    I want to buy a new card and I'm looking at these two cards. EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 Black GAMING is the cheapest 2070 that EVGA makes it actually only has one 8pin connection for power and the PCB is not even full length of the card only about half. EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC GAMING is third...

    So is overclocking a 9600K as easy just needing to fiddle with two settings ?

    I read on another forum all you have to do is fiddle with two settings in the bios. Set CPU Core Ratio to "Sync All Cores" and basically set a multiplier you're aiming for and adjust voltage within the safe range until its stable. If it doesn't ever become stable, or gets too hot, drop your...

    Is it worth getting 3200 ram or is 2666 good enough and what kinda of timings ?

    I'm not going for a extreme build more something like a I5-9600K Intel build.

    Should I get Black OPS 4 on PC or on the console ?

    series due to having a bigger player base. Second thing to consider is the possible cheating/hacking on the PC side of things. But the game being on blizzard's servers does that mean blizzard will take care of these cheaters right away or is that still up to the dev's of the game ?

    Anybody try a 27" 4K monitor is everything too small ?

    I once had briefly a 32" 4K monitor and for it to be comfortable I had to scale to 150% large size for it to look okay to me, no way I could go smaller. Is it a pretty safe bet to say 150% large for a 27" 4K for me won't work ? What about older PC games in 4K, will it be fine 98% of the time...

    Just got a 1440p monitor should I upgrade to a 1070 or wait for next gen from Nvidia ?

    I currently got a 1060 by the way. I'd like to get a 1070 but at $500 seems too high. Amazon even got the 1070 TI for only $50 more which maybe worth it. I'm going to wait a bit either way I'm hoping that the prices will continue to fall.

    Whats the best settings if I can't reach 144Hz and above ?

    So I got a new 1440p 144Hz monitor and it's great no G-SYNC by the way. Anyway for right now until I can afford a upgrade the GTX 1060 will have to suffice for now. So whats the next best thing keep the monitor at 144Hz and don't use any v-sync in game nor in NCP then ? Thanks

    It's to bad IPS monitors have that glow going for them.

    I bought the new Acer CB271HU 27” IPS 2K/QHD and it's great it's got everything even a 75Hz refresh rate option. Which I've noticed over the standard 60Hz. Contrast is good colors are good, but in dark scenes you notice the glow in the two lower corners, it's not to big of a area, just in the...

    VG248QE color/contrast as good as it gets for TN panels ?

    So I just bought the VG248QE a couple of days ago and it's fast and all but the colors/contrast is definitely a step back from my VA panel I was using. Would the newer better Dell S2417DG give me a little bit better color/contrast then the older VG248QE ?

From my experience and reading lots of stuff about it 100 PPI is pretty much the lowest you want to go. Of coarse lots of this...
