I'm like 85% sure that the chair you're calling "fake" is just an aesthetically-different version of the same chair. If you go to the...

$10 is just a different way of saying 1000 cents, but it makes sense since cents is (sincerely) slightly superior in size, whereas dollars...

The non-super link also includes an MSI B450M Mortar MAX mobo though, vs a low end A320 board.

P.s. the NT-USB uses USB-C input just for convenience, and includes a USB-C -> USB-A cable for actual usage (and no C to C cable).

Unfortunately I see no indication in the manual for the X470 variant that it supports doing it without a CPU:...
28/10/2020 - 23:21
This generally isn't true. If you pop in a CPU which the current UEFI/BIOS on the board doesn't support, it won't be able to boot (meaning...

That'd probably be it then, thanks for clarifying!

If you need 32GB then I would just get this (it's a great price for a 32GB kit) - the performance increase for 3600C18 is minimal (~1-3% in...

The GT 710 doesn't hardware-decode HEVC or VP9. High quality YouTube videos already use VP9, so I wouldn't recommend the 710 if the...

Problem solved, the from-Amazon price is now $31.90 as well (although back-ordered).
