  1. Yes, the Dell laptop had other software/hardware issues.
  2. The Dell latitude 2120 was too slow. So I went ahead and bought an evoo laptop. Much better.
  3. She cannot use Linux. I am going to install Windows 10 first and if there are no driver installation issues, briefly replicate what she would be doing to hopefully not be sluggish. If it is or I encounter crashing and freezing, I will switch to Windows 7.
  4. I am getting an old laptop for my cousin to use for shopping online and excel spreadsheet. which is pretty much what she will only use it for. it has no OS but was wondering if it is better to install windows 10 or windows 7, from a performance perspective?
  5. I went ahead and snagged a new Inland Professional 480GB SSD for $39 on ebay. It is a relatively modern drive and has a 3 yr warranty I plan to use this as a gaming storage drive on a secondary gaming laptop on occasion. Hope this is worth it.
  6. thansk for the info. is a intel 520 480gb for $30 worth it? it has 39 TB written on it with 100% health status.
  7. A used Micron M510DC 480GB is selling for relatively cheap price. Is this enterprise SSD good for gaming or is it better to use a consumer-grade SSD?

    laptop for normal gaming?

    any one know what cpu/gpu spec i should be looking for in a game like GTA V on normal settings? my budget is around $250 but i can stretch it a bit higher if I have to.
  9. Planning to replace my card soon and buy a 4k TV eventually. I will be using it for a multi-seat gaming setup until then. I know it should fit my case and was wondering if it is compatible with the rest of my spec below, mainly my mobo and PSU.
  10. I am looking for a custom 1080 Ti < 11" that will fit in my case. My 980 Ti barely fits with a quarter of an inch to spare. My priority is: 1. Size 2. Performance 3. Noise Anyone know which ones I can choose from? Edit: Looks like I found one: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING. What is the noise level when overclocking?

    Is it ok if I disable Windows 10 memory compression?

    To no longer get the "error" in process explorer.
  12. If I enable memory compression (via the mmagent cmdlet in powershell) I get this "error" in process explorer about a process called "memory compression" and the path reads "[a device attached to the system is not functioning.]": When I try to access any kind of information on it via properties settings, which there is none, it says "Access Is Denied" the only info I can see is threads tab that shows "ntoskrnlGetCompressionWorkspace" error. Anyways, if I disable memory compression via the mmagent cmdlet in powershell, I no longer get the "error" in process explorer! The image below shows that memory compression is disabled with its "False" value: But the other features having "True" values show that superfetch/prefetch is currently enabled. Normally superfetch enables memory compression by default when superfetch is on, until I manually disabled memory compression. Suppose Superfetch (and memory compression) was enabled before then I disabled the Superfetch service in Service Manager, well this is what the mmagent cmdlet in Powershell looks like. With Superfetch disabled, it also disables memory compression. Currently, I have enabled Superfetch but since I manually disabled memory compression it stayed disabled. Otherwise, memory compression would have been automatically enabled alongside the Superfetch features.
  13. Yes the features are important and glad to know they are worth it. If I am going to upgrade to HDR, I have found Vizio P55-C1 to be an alternative to the Samsung UN55KS8000 but only if either are on sale for $1000 or less. Is your HTPC a desktop PC or multiple streaming devices (apple, roku)?
