    OFFICIAL Cyberpunk 2077 Game Discussion

    Is anyone else having horrible 1%, 0.1% lows with this game? I'm running a Haswell 4790k which I get is old but 1% lows hit like 17fps outdoors at any graphics setting from low to ultra at 1440p Works absolutely fine at 1080p, but not at 1440p with 75% scaling, which is another baffling aspect

    First mini-ITX build

    Everything being out of stock is really starting to get annoying, I might have to go for a 3600 as that's all that's in stock that's viable (no 3300X or 5600X) and I can forget about getting any new graphics cards for a while :roll:

    First mini-ITX build

    This is something I completely hadn't considered, thanks for the idea. I'm coming from USB 3.0 I've never seriously considered it, but presumably I'll be on 3.2 gen speed by moving to 500 series motherboards

    First mini-ITX build

    Yeah I thought PCI 3 vs 4 was negligible in terms of performance, I didn't think I would that much more performance, but if the board is actually shit then it might be worth stepping up a bit. I have no idea I will have to look at some other people's builds tbh. I need a HDD to hold all my old...

    The Ampere Purchase Thread

    Thinking of the 3070, but waiting to see what AMD has to offer I have a G-Sync monitor though so probably will end up with an nvidia card

    Looking for an mp3 player with high capacity or sd card slot

    That's a good point, maybe I should just upgrade my phone. It doesn't currently support sd cards

    Looking for an mp3 player with high capacity or sd card slot

    I want to carry my music around with me as I'm kind of fed up of streaming. I had an iPod Classic 160GB but need something that will hold a similar amount of songs either built in, or ideally on an SD card Any recommendations guys?

    Best site for refurbished laptops (UK)

    I've been looking at the Dell XPS 9350 (2015) on this website, however it's not one I've ever heard of Anyone got any experience buying on FYL Direct? I normally check the usual suspects for refurbished laptops but most don't carry an XPS model this old (and cheap)

    Gaming laptop alternatives to Dell XPS 13

    Definitely, I was looking to see if there were any laptops out there that strike the balance. I understand there might not be at my price point, in which case I'd prioritise a work laptop. I've still got my desktop after all :)

    Gaming laptop alternatives to Dell XPS 13

    Gaming laptop alternatives to Dell XPS 13

    I'm looking for a laptop for work and have been really interested in the XPS13, but looking at the price tag it seems silly to buy a laptop that costs more than my desktop that doesn't have at least a GTX 1050. are there any gaming laptops in a similar price range anyone can recommend I look at?
