    Hi all looking for opinions on these two laptops. I have a main gaming desktop rig so I really want something for the road that’s not too expensive, Thats why I have settled on the 4060 As a compromise. I want something in the $1500 range. I know these two are very similar, keep in mind the...

    Need laptop recommendations

    I wouldn’t recommend a MacBook for heavy MS Office use especially if someone is coming from a windows platform. We have both at work, and the Mac users constantly complain about it not being as friendly as the Windows version, especially Excel.

    NETGEAR Nighthawk R6400 bottlenecking internet speed

    Hello All thanks for the responses. I solved it. Problem wasn't the R6400 (well it was) but the fix was actually on the ISP router. WAN port 1 on the Orangebox was the R6400 and it was listed as a unknown device. All I had to do was specify the Device as a WIFI Access point. I suspect Chas was...

    Best gaming PC for under $550

    I get you are on a budget but gaming without a dedicated graphics card is going to suck. Anyway he can save up another 150 and get something decent or used? If not, he might just be better off with a PS4 and keeping the laptop. Cheaper too. I see a PS4 PRO RDR2 Pack is $399. Thats probably a...

    Sub Sims?

    If I could make a suggestion for a upcoming game: UBOOT by Deep Water Studios. Its a cross between Fallout Shelter and Silent Hunter. Subnautica really isn't a submarine game, its a sci-fi deep ocean survival game that has subs in it. Still an excellent recommendation and there is an add-on...

    Need a secondary Monitor recommendation for movies/video

    Hello Again So if you remember my previous thread for a new primary monitor I wound up and got the x34P which is awesome which I mainly use for games. I also added a 1080 ti to run everything at x3480x1440 at full detail. Now I want to replace my secondary. This monitor is only for 2 things...

    Can't decide between 21:9 (ultrawide) or 16:9

    FYI, bought the x34p, will arrive tomorrow. My original plan was to triple monitor gaming, but it was too complicated. So mainly I game on 1 and use the other 2 for browsing. I plan to sell the 3 dells and the stand and get another monitor for the "other stuff".

    1080 vs 1080ti for a Acer x34p

    Hello all I am looking at a single card replacement for my 2x 780GTX Sli to power my brand new x34p Ultrawide. I can get a Palit 1080 GTX for about 215 EUROS. Which seems like a good deal, however the monitor I have is a BEAST and I had thought about getting a 1080ti for it. I wont be...

    Can't decide between 21:9 (ultrawide) or 16:9

    So Just to let you all know...I went with the Acer x34p. I actually preferred the Alienware but I found a used x34p used (returned, opened but never taken out of box) for 702 Euros even. That was 300 Euros less than the Alienware. For that price that's a 1080 or 50% off a 1080ti. I felt the...

    Can't decide between 21:9 (ultrawide) or 16:9

    Me Again... Another matchup ACER x34p vs Dell AW3418DW. Now, I know most of you will say the Dell is better, and I am willing to accept that BUT...I found the x34p for 200 EUROS less. I also like the stand on the ASUS better because of its smaller footprint (important because its on a desk...

    Can't decide between 21:9 (ultrawide) or 16:9

    Its a tough call 4K vs Ultrawide. I really want G-SYNC and the 4K monitors with G-SYNC are extremely expensive. It also looks like 4K is more in need of a top tier graphics card (which is on my shopping list but not right away). I am lean ultrawide, unless someone can make a good counter...

    Need Suggesttion on New Gaming Monitor

    Hello Tech Gurus... I need your advice. I currently have 2x 780GTX with 3x Dell U2414H monitors. Never liked them, never liked the fact I couldn't use SLi with them, the extra heat and power, and I had all sorts of issues getting them to work with each other. I have had it. I want to change...

    Powerline Adaptors (CPL) worth upgrading from 500mb to 1200mb

    Hi Guys I have been using an older Devolo CPL 500mb adaptor since 2011. Its works pretty well (although its not as fast a gigabit ethernet). Again its older 5 years old technology. I see now they have 1200mb Powerline, do you think its worth the investment to change all my adaptors? Will I see...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    SWTOR didnt go F2P, it simply added a F2P model as an option, the sub model is still there (I am still subbed myself). EA has said that since adding the F2P/Premium player option the number of actual subscribers as increased substantially, (although actual subscriber numbers are a secret). EA...

    Seeking HTPC Case Suggestions For ATX Build

    For HTPC Full ATX/Desktops there is not a large amount of choice as ATX is not the standard HTPC size. That being said, I would recommend the Silverstone Grandia Series. SST makes some really nice HTPC cases. I won't recommend a specific model as they are all similar, so pick the one you like...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    I heard the same argument about SWTOR. Predictions about its imminent demise proved to have been exaggerated. Secondly I wasn't aware PS2 was doing THAT badly, especially as its a 3 year old game. There are MMOs in far worse condition that are still running. The most popular IP on the planet...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    Planetside 2, l like Dice shooters in general (on the fence with Battlefront) but planetside has much more depth to it due to its rpg elements and huge maps. Am somewhat disappointed DICE didn't do a Planetside style game with the SW license, but the darkside of the quick buck proved to strong.

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    Thanks for the info, but keep in mind that information from Data Mines can be misleading and should be taken with a grain of salt. Sometimes ideas/features etc get removed from the game but not from the code. Programming can be like pull threads on a carpet (you tug a thread and something else...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    1. I never said anything about lack of content, I specifically said the game is too casual, not too light. The gameplay is too simplified for my tastes and that it gets boring quickly. For example: I don't like the unlock system, I don't like not having classes (I like classes), I don't like...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    I understand your POV. I do not like casual games but if I can honest there are even better Casual Games than this like COD. COD isn't my cup of tea, but its got more content than this even for a "casual" game. My experience with the beta was like going into the most famous 5 Star French...
