    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST not a clue please help

    Fairly minor changes that increase the price, but also increase the value and open the door a little more for future potential. Case CORSAIR 4000D AIRFLOW TEMPERED GLASS GAMING CASE Processor (CPU) AMD Ryzen 5 5600G Six Core CPU with Radeon™ Graphics (3.9GHz-4.4GHz/19MB CACHE/AM4) Motherboard...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST not a clue please help

    This is where you would want to start with a system that could be upgraded. Note, there are a couple of corners cut so I will follow up with what I would tend to recommend if the budget could be expanded upon again. I genuinely wouldn't recommend anything lower than this and would be more...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST General questions

    Sorry for the OT, just wanted to chime in with a little further insight into this and rather than keep it personal thought it may be of interest to the op and possibly others. With the FE cards Jayz 2 Cents did a bit on the heat of the memory on the cards as stock. They found that using better...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Please help, I need reassurance. (This will be a gaming pc strictly for fps on low settings)

    Not a lot I can say really. I'll take a stab at it, not that it'll be worth much to you. There was nothing tangible in it between the 2 of them. They pretty much traded blows within margin of error. They were both OC.... which isn't what we would recommend on AMD as AMD tends to run better in...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Please help, I need reassurance. (This will be a gaming pc strictly for fps on low settings)

    If you are referring to the AMD vs Intel thread, that was the previous generation of AMD. The current generation of AMD (Which is the 5000 series) beats Intel in every metric. The release date that you are quoting came and went last October with the release of the 5000 series chips, more...

    Which 4th gen? Zen 4 is a while away yet. Zen 3 is getting ready for TR but has been available in AM4 for a while now.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Will this build be cool enough?

    I would definitely re-think the entire build to be honest. It's not very well thought out for your uses and is using older technology.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST CPU Upgrade for N15_17RF - Optimus VI

    I could be wrong but I'm fairly certain that's a soldered in chip. With that in mind the only sensible upgrade would be a replacement board with the chip/gpu in place. That's only sensible from a practicality stand point though as financially it's a non-starter IMO. Best way to upgrade is to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST You thought spec-ing a PC within budget was hard.....

    Some of you may know that I've had an inkling to get myself a Vinyl setup for a little while. I've been nipping @SpyderTracks ear on more than one occasion and on Monday I finally got the ball rolling properly. I wanted to keep within the realms of sanity budget wise, I had planned a couple of...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Spec for video editing PC - help needed!

    Most likely they've found it's a problematic configuration for space etc and so to save hassle they are just labelling it as incompatible.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Placed an order a month ago (22 Aug), it's still in pre-production. Is this normal?

    I would take the opportunity to swap the case out to be honest. The 200r isn't great for airflow.

    I'm doing my bit. I'm injecting that harmful CO2 into my lovely beer. I keep making more beer to keep trying to get rid of the CO2 but it's a tough ask.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC crash/reboot - Driver issue - 0x00000116

    Thanks for coming back to let us know. I would never in a million years have thought of that to be honest. I know the PCIe 4.0 saga goes on for Intel but I wouldn't have thought that Auto would try to do something that it is incapable of doing, sounds very much like a bug in the BIOS firmware...

    RE7 felt more stand alone. I think you needed to play the DLC to get the links. Would highly recommend playing at least 2 & 7 though.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Resident Evil Village

    Finished 7 yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The interesting thing with the Resident Evil games is that the difficulty doesn't seem to cliff. So many games I start to enjoy and then hit a wall of zero progression and I get bored. RE doesn't tend to do this, enemies increase in number but not...
