You're right on the GPU being 3070/RX6700 XT level. That is the norm for 2K gaming and should last you for years longer. As for CPU current...

Recently I've built my own but did got with a budget build a few years ago with an AMD 2200G from TechFast. It's still running solidly and...

Yes it's a lot but I was building with this last year and the CPU prices was in the mid-high 200s. It's quiet and boring little CPU (with...

It skips checks for SecureBoot, TPM and CPU but UEFI is still used as it has been in previous versions of Windows. Note older systems do...

It's not really a hack. The steps basically skip some checks during the install. However it still installs Windows and all it's features....

With Zen3 you also have years of real world fixes applied and all the apps working well. This cycle of release and fix starts again with...

Yes you can. You have to do a few command line steps during the install. I've done it on 3rd Gen GPU Intel as well without a hitch....

Yes, I used to have a 2200G and even the 3200G was noticeably better. So 5600G should be even more noticeably better than the 2400G. As for...

I don't think it would be a noticeable difference. I have a 3200G based system (A320 chipset) and have also built 2 5600G based systems...

These are decent machines. Used these as daily drivers while working in a few financial firms. They handle Office and Browsers apps fine....

Had a OnePlus in the past (OP5) and it was an excellent phone, good price, good performance, stable OS. These days I go for Motorola as I...

It started in America and its origin is unknown. That being the case I say somebody just made it up and the fried chicken shops saw a...

I think this is a decent laptop. 16 GB soldered is a small downer but still a usable amount of RAM at this price point, I do like the fact...

I think you're looking at this one. It's not the exact same model. Big difference is the screen (Good Guys one is 1366x768). Link to Good...

This deal for the better screen. The Asus has a 11th Gen Intel and this is 10th Gen Intel. If it's even noticeable the CPU speed difference...

I'd wait till she is 11 and get it for the next Christmas. I'm sure there will something with better specs and this price range next year...

Specs difficult to find but it's Wifi 6 (AX).

These have their purpose but I think the general lack of flexibility and mediocre specs will let down users after a year or two. Pros:...

When you mix faster RAM and slower RAM both sticks will run at the slower RAM stick speed. Focus on the type (DDR4) and voltage. The...

Basically if somebody dragged a ballpoint on the case or dragged the bottom on concrete. It'll scratch the plastic. You could ignore, cover...

I have a few for the kids school laptops and older parents. They work fine for most things (including Roblox for the kids).

Yes, I've used this method (link below) a few times on PCs as old as 11 years old (3rd Gen Intel Core I7). So far stable and installing all...

These are usually ex-office PCs that were used for a few years (usually 3 years) then written off (depreciated), replaced with newer...

Read this thread on Reddit that CL is not the whole picture. It's not simply CL40 bad, CL20 good and twice as fast. You must take into...

Win 10 Pro will install with no issues if that's what you're asking (only Win11 runs this min CPU check during install, but many steps and...
20/06/2022 - 10:44
Glancing at UserBenchmark I think the Optiplex will be about even with the Lenovo. I'd favour the Optiplex because it is 4C/8T with higher...

Win11 can be installed on CPUs older than 8th Gen Intel CPUs. However MS will not 'officially support' it, meaning one day they might just...

The 5600G seems to have more deals but neither have active deals at the moment. I have a few 5600G builds going but could never justify the...

Ebay and gumtree for parts only listings if you want to go that route. The charities would only be well served with working stuff.
