    Sound card amplification settings

    Hi Phantom, Just a thought, Is the hub with the 3.5 jacks on the 2.1s also a volume control?

    Cooler Master Showcases the Cosmos C700P on Cosmos Line's 10th Anniversary

    Does a Intel Core i3-7100 bottleneck a Zotac Geforce GTX 1060 mini 3GB videocard?

    i3`s are golden. I was watching a comparison video between the gtx1060 and the RX570 and there was not a difference of $80 between the two. Careful what you pay for a gtx1060 before you consider the AMD card
