The Ryzen 4800h is a 8 core 16 thread cpu (remembering that the 9750h is an Oc-version of the 8750h with only 6 cores and 12 threads of the...

The downside of a 240hz screen is that you need a system that can take a game and render it at 240fps to get that buttery smooth motion....

The CPU in your example will be slightly worse unfortunately. If you can find one with a Ryzen 4-series (e.g. Ryzen 4800h) it will...

Judging by the market, computer equipment is likely to get a lot more expensive for at least 6 months plus!

Yeah, X-Split being more actively developed isn't true unfortunately. Have a look at the releases on the OBS GitHub, and you'll see that...

Don't they sell the cheese pizza for only $4.95? $3 for spring onions and garlic if so!

It just goes to show the varied experiences with keyboard brands, and it's just not consistent. Here is what I've owned, and what happened...

I would skip, as you are going from a 4 core to a 4 core, so the only benefit you would have is via the architectural improvements since,...

Yeah you probably got flagged for a few reasons: 1) Most credit card fraud starts with a tiny (usually around $1) transaction to see if the...
