What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
*Extra info or particulars: Our simulations are mainly CHT and LPT, and a variable number of cells ( 2 to 6.000.000). We tried running the simulation on a Dell Precision 3660 but since the first boot we experienced a lot of high temperature problems (sudden shutdown during simulations). *

Extra info or particulars:
Tl;dr I'm looking to upgrade a pretty old mobo and CPU but I'm admittedly overwhelmed by the options out there. I figured I'd ask here since I don't want to make some stupid mistake like accidentally buying something that doesn't support M.2.
This is my current build https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/WNVQTn. I have 24gb of dual-channel DDR4 but can't find them in PCPartPicker.
And help would be really appreciated, thanks!

2023.05.31 17:18 Upper_Ad_3103 Modern warfare multiplayer... latency? problem

So i bought modern warfare 2, and everything was great, the campain is awesome i enjoy the game a lot, BUT as soon as i go to multiplayer... well its hard to explain but i get some sort of lag or latency. So i t looks something like this: the match starts and from a time to time it works normally but most of the time it feels like my keyboards keys are getting stuck, by that i mean i press the key "a" and my character doesnt stop going to the left, same with shooting i press the left mouse button and my character keeps shooting for a few seconds.

2023.05.31 17:17 Altruistic-Buyer103 Thoughts?

Thoughts?
I recently built a pc for me and my older cousin, everything was great until his little brother started complaining that his switch wasn’t good enough, and that he wanted keyboard and mouse. I don’t have much to spend considering I spent about $1200 for each of our setups. In order to get him to shut up we decided to buy him a pc. But with a very tight budget, it’s hard to get all parts for a pc. I recently found a tiny pc with and m.2 and two sata connectors. I figured I can run a gpu off of the m.2 slot with an adapter and external power supply, and use the sata for boot drives and games. The mini pc I was looking at has an 11th gen Celeron N5095 in it, and as I’m not familiar with mobile cpus, I don’t know if it would be suitable for gaming. I do have a spare gpu, so I wont be using integrated graphics. But I’m unsure if the cpu is powerful enough to handle games like apex legends and fortnite. Please help out if you know what you’re talking about.

2023.05.31 16:49 GigaPinch UK - 4K Gaming and Streaming rig

Thank you to anyone taking the time to read through this, and doubly thank you to those those that throw in their 2 cents.
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
£2200 – willing to go a bit higher if it makes a huge and beneficial difference, say £200-£350.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
This week
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc\)
Tower
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
UK
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Monitor: Dell 32'' 4K Gaming Monitor - G3223Q
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
If I need to.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Decent SSD.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Black, nice looking case would be ideal, don’t really mind the size, as long as its spacious to fit the new generation of GPUs (seen they are huge). A window would be nice, but not a fan of RGB, although I don’t mind lights.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No
Extra info or particulars:
My monitor is 4K, so want to take complete advantage of that, and play games at their highest possible FPS with my budget. I also want to make sure this setup can easily be upgraded, and therefore future proof.
Again. Thank you so much.

2023.05.31 16:47 LeiMoanJello Easily Drop and use ReShade 5.8.0 for Most Games

Easily Drop and use ReShade 5.8.0 for Most Games
Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share an update with ReShade that I have been using on my Steam Deck. As most of you know, messing around with the deck is one of the most fun things about the device. I haven't seen an update on ReShade for 5.8.0 so I decided to make a quick guide that will give you the tweak whatever game you choose with most (if not all) of the SweetFx shader bundle.

With the intro out the way, this will work for most games but not all. I'd say about 95% of my library worked just fine with ReShade once I dropped the files in the game's directory. Between Vibrant Deck and tweaks through ReShade, I was able to get Darkest Dungeon 2 looking amazing (It already looked great just added a bit more to balance out SD's screen)

https://preview.redd.it/8lx34vi6x73b1.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2f8967e6a73cbf9ddf8d890e1e42b676026ccd28
ReShade 5.8.0 Instructions (Finally, this guy talks way to much)
  1. Put your Steam Deck in Desktop Mode
  2. Download THIS Zip folder on your steam deck and save it somewhere easily accessible
  3. Open Steam and choose whatever game you would like to add ReShade too
  4. Click the Gear Icon and then choose Properties
  5. In the side options, choose Local Files then click Browse. This will take you to the game's directory. Most the time the .exe file will be here, if not look around in the folders till you find the game's exe file
  6. With the game's directory still open, Copy all the files from the "ReShade for Steam Deck" folder that you downloaded to the directory
  7. Once everything is copied, you will know ReShade is working because it will start compiling shaders once you open the game
  8. To change settings, just make one of your keys the "Home" key with controller config. I typically use L4 and make your right trackpad to act like a mouse and pressing down like a Left click on mouse.
  9. That's it! Customize your game as much as you want. Anytime you want to add ReShade, just copy the files to the game and tweak away!

Hopefully, everything works as easy as drop and use with the files. I tried to make sure that it was not linked to any of my own folders and just a plug and play setup. If there are any questions or suggestions, please feel free to ask or share.

Shameless Plug: If you are thinking about buying Town of Salem 2 and do not have anyone to put in refer a friend, please put me Maybe30Ninjas

2023.05.31 16:47 SanttuPOIKA---- Should I try to play this game a bit more before giving up?

Hi, I've been playing Honkai 3 for a few hours now. I'm coming from Genshin and I'm currently halfway on Chapter 2 on the story. I haven't been enjoying it that much for these reasons:
  1. It doesn't have English voiceover. I like being able to actually understand what the characters are saying. I don't really like it being only in Chinese / Japanese.
  2. No proper keyboard & mouse support. I hate using a controller, but I basically have to use it in this game. So far it's been easy enough with a controller though.
  3. The story hasn't been very interesting. I only want to play the story of it and nothing else. I don't even know if this is possible, since in Genshin, the story has AR locks and requires some sidequests to be done in order to continue the archon quests.
  4. The graphics look outdated. While this isn't a huge problem for me, it still feels less enjoyable.
Will the story actually become good later, and do I have to do something else in order to enjoy it? I want to like this game, but I'm not sure if it's possible for me. All the different options in the menu and other places feel way too overwhelming for me, but I'm sure most players felt the same way in the beginning, too.

2023.05.31 15:58 Embite A Comprehensive Guide to Railroads Online

Hello new/returning player! Whether you're considering buying or you've just installed it and don't know where to start, there's a good chance you have some questions about the game. I've been playing pretty much since launch, and since the Discord imploded and the in-game tutorial kinda sucks, I figured this would be a good place to put together a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know about Railroads Online. Feel free to scroll through the headings to find what you're looking for!

Is it worth the money?
Railroads Online is exactly what it says on the tin and exactly what you see in the trailer. There are railroads, they are online, and you do have complete freedom to build your own railroad in a sandbox environment. If that's your cup of tea, try it! Steam's refund policy allows you to refund the game if you have less than 2 hours played and you've owned it for less than 2 weeks, so even if you don't like it when you start, you have a safety net. That said, this game is in early access. And, the regularly-updated branch is a beta to the early access, so it is seriously lacking polish in certain areas. This game is physics-based, and that can take a toll on performance for trains longer than a dozen cars, and the Beta branch reportedly has some people's GPUs on their knees. Updates also regularly introduce bugs, ranging from mildly amusing to make-sure-you-back-up-your-save-file. For some people that sort of thing is understandably not worth $35, while for others it gives the game character. I've gotten close to 10 hours of playtime for every dollar I spent on it, so obviously I'd be inclined to say it's worth it, but everybody's experience will be different.

Note: The following guide is geared towards the Beta version of the game. This version has the most features, looks the best, and receives regular updates, though there are a number of known performance and stability issues. The majority of it still applies to both versions of the game regardless, though the largest changes have been to track laying.

Getting Started

Warning: Remember, this is Railroads Online. There is no "offline" mode, strictly speaking, but you can drag the "player limit" slider down to 1. If you're going to play with other people, use a password. If you ever forget to, and someone comes in and undoes all of your hard work, you will never forget again. You have been warned!

Your first railroad
So, you've launched the game! Congratulations! Now what? Well, it's probably good to get yourself oriented first.
The game spawns you in on the spawning platform. The three tracks you've spawned next to are permanent, and they are where new equipment spawns when you purchase it. You are given Betsy, a flatcar, and $2000 for free, and the rest is left up to you.
Before you run any trains, you'll need to build some track to run them on. Take care here, because there is no edit tool; if you build something, the only way to change it is to delete sections and rebuild. Measure twice, cut once, and make it look nice the first time so you don't have to redo it later. Or something.
Press G to bring up the majority of your sandbox tools: Track Construction, Facilities, Locomotives (the shop), Demolish, Rerail, and Logging, plus the Respawn button. I will cover all of these tools in time, but for now, all you need to be familiar with are the Track Construction tab, the Demolish tool, and the Logging tool.

Track Construction
Track laying in this game has been... fucky... for a long time. It's a LOT better now than it used to be, but I still recommend downloading RROx (Railroads Online Extended) and using the fast sprint cheat when you're building. It will save you hours (not to mention the other features it offers).
First of all, everything in this game except for rolling stock is FREE! Go nuts! Want to triple-track the main? You can! Want to fill the entire southern half of the map with water towers? Your call! Fun first, safety third. Anyway:

In the Track Construction menu, you will be greeted by a bunch of track options. Feel free to place them wherever to get an idea of what they are.
The first row is, of course, 3 foot narrow-gauge rail. The I, II, and III varieties are identical except for the amount of ballast. I has some, II has a bit more, and III has a lot. On cliff faces, too much ballast can cause ugly clipping, so it's best to use tier I when you can and step it up if it's too short. The game will not let you place a node if the spline is not supported by ground or some other structure at every point.
The default building mode is spline mode. Click once to place the first node, and click somewhere else to place the second node. Boom! You've placed your first track segment. If you click on the ground, it will face whatever direction your UI currently says it's facing, but if you click on another piece of track it will do its best to connect to the other node as smoothly as possible. This can result in some janky turns if you're not careful, so keep that in mind. There are keybinds to rotate the endpoints to face the direction you want them to. Track will not snap to another track unless you see the glowing chain link icon above it. If you don't see it at first, walk around a little, staring at the desired connection point until you trigger the hitbox.
The other building mode is circle mode. It does what it says on the tin– your track will follow a circular arc with the radius you specify. Use smaller segments if you can, because for some reason the angles get weird if you try to do more than 90° in a single segment. In this mode, you can snap to existing track on your first click, but it will not snap to another track for your second click because it only cares about following the circle. This build mode is useful for a number of reasons, not least of which being the ability to see what your maximum turning radius is. A 30 meter radius is the minimum, but on your main line you should aim to stay above 60-100 meters to avoid derailments at high speeds.
Next in the menu: switches. If you know what trains are, you probably know what switches are. In RRO, if a switch is pointing one way, and you come in from the other, it will automatically align with you to let you through, unless A.) you are in a handcart, or B.) it is the 3-way stub switch. Also note that they are not perfect mirror images of each other (not sure how they managed to mess that up but oh well), which may cause problems when creating complex structures like yards.
The 90° crossover piece is your friend when designing parallel tracks. You can chain them together to ensure equal spacing, matching angles, or you can simply use them as placeholder nodes to snap your track to if you need to delete part of it. Two crossover pieces are far enough apart for two trains to pass each other comfortably, so it's handy for smoothing your double-tracks, if you choose to build them. The 45° crossover piece is also good, for when you want a spacer piece that's slightly longer than the 90°, or if you don't want your simple wyes to be a hundred feet across. (Still waiting on that 10° crossover, Astragon.)
Turntables are what you expect them to be. The plain Turntable I is small enough to fit in some tight spaces like yards, but a lot of locomotives will only fit on Turntable II. Turntables have historically been a bit buggy, particularly if you reload a save while something is on it, so be wary.
The bumper is a bumper. 'Nuff said.
Embankments are ballast without the rail. They're nice as decoration around the base of certain structures, or as filler in between the tracks in yards, or as ballast for bumpers and crossovers. You can also access a similar trackless version of the stone wall by using its drop-down menu.
Bridges and stone walls work exactly the same as ballast track: they will not allow you to place a node if the spline is not supported everywhere. However, there is a workaround for this: nodes can be supported by ballast. If you use small enough segments, 3 Ft Rail III can be used to cross gaps using just the previous segment's ballast as support. If you fill the gap with ballast, you can place your bridge on top of it, and then remove the ballast later. You can pretty it up with some stone walls as supports, if you want to.

And that's everything currently in the Track Construction menu! The Engine Shed and the Coaling Tower also have small pieces of track, but they are kept in the Facilities menu.
Note: You can make it to pretty much every industry in the game with less than a 3% grade. In real life, this is considered pretty steep, but in-game you can get away with even steeper track if you can't be bothered to work out the best path.

Demolish Tool
The demolish tool is delightfully simple. It deletes things! By default, it only deletes rail, but that can be changed with the drop-down menu. Be very careful using the "All" option-- you could accidentally delete your rolling stock.

The Logging Tool
The logging tool will probably be your second most-used tool, right after track construction, because everywhere you want to place track, there are trees in the way. You can click almost anywhere on the tree to remove it, and it does this for free, but you might have trouble removing a tree if the bottom two-thirds of it are buried in ballast. If spam-clicking feels tedious, you can hold down the mouse button until the saw finds a part of the trunk that it likes.

That should be everything you need to know to build your first railway!

Industries

In Railroads Online, your objective is money. Moneymoneymoneymoneymoneymoney. But u/Embite, I hear you ask, how do I GET money? Well, I'm glad you asked! The answer is industries.
There are 9 industries in RRO, which you can see on the map: the Smelter, the Sawmill, the Logging Camp, the Freight Depot, the Iron Ore Mine, the Oil Field, the Ironworks, the Refinery, and the Coal Mine.
Each industry has inputs and outputs. For example, the Logging Camp has two output platforms: one for logs and one for cordwood. To load a car with the output, simply position your railcar where the crane drops the cargo and click the crane to start loading. For some outputs like the iron mine, there's a chute instead of a crane, but it's the same idea. When you unload a car, the cargo teleports to the side you clicked on, so make sure you're standing on the platform that you want to deliver to.
The inputs and outputs for each industry is listed in the table below.

Location Input Output
Freight Depot Anything Nothing
Logging Camp Nothing Logs, Cordwood
Sawmill Logs Beams, Lumber
Iron Ore Mine Beams, Lumber Iron Ore
Smelter Iron Ore, Cordwood Raw Iron, Rails
Coal Mine Beams, Rails Coal
Ironworks Lumber, Raw Iron, Coal Steel Pipes, Tools
Oil Field Beams, Steel Pipes, Tools Crude Oil
Refinery Lumber, Steel Pipes, Crude Oil Oil Barrel
You should notice a few things:
  1. Logging Camp has no inputs. This is where the supply chain of RRO starts. The lumberjacks do all of their work for free, and they will never run out of logs, or cordwood.
  2. Freight Depot (the big warehouse near spawn) has no outputs. This is where you can return to sell whatever products you've collected and turn them in for straight cash. You get the same amount of money regardless of which buyer you send cargo to, so it's recommended that you try to deliver to another industry whenever possible, since you get money AND more cargo to sell, rather than just the money. If all you need is money though, the Freight Depot is where to go.
  3. There is a clear progression from one industry to the next. I've ordered the table so that once you've connected to one industry in the list, your railroad will have access to all of the cargo needed for the next industry down.
While it's best to try and deliver to new industries whenever possible, sometimes (especially early on) you will simply run out of money for all the new railcars you need to haul the stuff. For the early game, my best suggestion is to run beams from the sawmill straight to the freight depot. Stake flats (which carry beams) are among the cheapest rolling stock, and each carload is worth $72, compared to $60 for a flatcar of logs. You only need 3 beams per car, so it's fast to load and unload. While cordwood is also easy to do, with each carload worth $80, each flat is much more expensive to buy, and each car carries 8 units of cordwood, making the loading time much longer. Plus, many more industries use stake flats than the cordwood flats, so you will be investing in the future of your railroad as you go.
Another way to make money in RRO is via Firewood Depots and Coaling Towers, which brings us to the next available construction tool,

Facilities
Facilities are buildings you place down yourself to facilitate the management of your railway. At the top of the menu are the Sand House, the Firewood Depot, and the Coaling Tower. They're very self-explanatory: The Sand House contains sand to refill your locomotive's sander, the Firewood Depot is where you restock on firewood, and the Coaling Tower is where you restock on coal. The Sand House is, as far as I can tell, unimplemented as of 5/29/2023, but the others are very important. In RRO, you need to produce the fuel that runs your railroad.
Firewood Depots are easy to stock, not least of all because they spawn in full of firewood, in case you run out in the middle of nowhere. To refill a Firewood Depot that has been exhausted, you simply unload any form of wooden cargo (logs, lumber, beams, or cordwood) onto the side of the platform that doesn't have firewood on it. When designing your yards, it's always smart to make space for a firewood depot, because the platforms are spaced far apart and most locomotives in RRO run on firewood.
Coaling towers do not spawn in stocked with coal, and coal is not available until about half of the map is connected by your railroad, so coal-fired locomotives will be a late-game commodity. Once you have access to them, though, they are restocked in much the same way as firewood depots.
Water towers are also important. Without water, your trains have no steam, so place these wherever they're convenient. They refill slowly on their own.
Engine sheds are purely cosmetic in this game, since the locomotives don't require servicing or shelter. They are, however, available in a variety of nice paint schemes, and a roundhouse is a great way to spruce up any boring-looking switching yards.
The last facility is the Telegraph Office, which is the most convenient structure in the game. Wherever on the map you place one, your map will be updated with a brown box with a T in it. Clicking his box allows you to teleport to any telegraph office from anywhere else in the game, saving you a lot of walking between industries and yards.

Locomotives (the shop), and Companies
The shop is where you use your hard-earned money to buy locomotives and rolling stock. You can check your funds in-game by pressing P. The "tier" of an item is the level your player needs to be in order to purchase it. Your level increases every time you deliver cargo to an industry. When other players join your game, they can join your company by pressing Tab and clicking "Join Company" next to your name. When they do this, any delivery they make will count as a delivery for you, not them, which increases your money and XP much faster than doing it all alone. Employment is forgotten when the player relogs.

Rerailing
Rerailing is finicky. Basically, you click "rerail," spam LMB on whatever you're trying to rerail until its name appears in the UI, and then walk around looking at track until it appears where you want it to. You can flip it around with LMB, and then drop it with RMB. Rerailing on switches currently seems to be a little broken.

Respawning
This option will send you back to the spawn yard if you ever manage to get stuck. It was more useful before telegraph offices were added, and most of the gamebreaking ways to get stuck have been patched, but if you want to use it you simply click and hold until you respawn.

Trains!!!!!!1!1!!!

Now, with a line of track connecting your spawning yard with the logging camp, you're ready to finally fire up your Porter 0-4-0 and run some trains! In case you're new to operating a steam locomotive, here's a quick rundown of the controls:

Controls
First, open up the firebox and throw a few logs on the fire. Pick up logs with LMB, look at the firebox until the UI displays its temperature in the top left, and throw with RMB. You can throw logs back onto the pile if you picked up too many (you can hold up to 5 at once). Now you have to wait for the fire to heat up, which then makes the boiler heat up, and then you will finally see the dial on your pressure gauge increase. Once you've got pressure, you can move the locomotive.
The big lever above the firebox is the regulator, aka the throttle. It basically controls how fast your built-up steam enters the cylinder, or in other words, how much power you're sending to the piston, and by extension, the wheels.
The lever coming out of the floor is the reverser (or the Johnson bar), which controls at what point in the cylinder's stroke steam is allowed to enter the chamber. All the way forward means that steam comes in anytime it would push the wheels forward, and all the way back means that steam comes in anytime it would push the wheels backwards. In between, it controls whether the steam flow is constant, or if it comes in short bursts. Or, at least, that's how it works in real life. IRL you can achieve more efficient steam usage by setting the reverser bar near the middle and letting the regulator stay open; however, in RRO, as far as I can tell it simply multiplies the % the regulator is open and the % that the reverser is set and uses that number as the "go amount." So, for all intents and purposes, the reverser is just another regulator (in RRO).
The lever to the right of that is the brake. Betsy (i.e. the Porter 0-4-0) has a mechanical brake, meaning it applies braking force as long as you have it on. In some locomotives, though, the brakes are powered by a steam-powered compressor, which you need to activate yourself via a valve somewhere, or else your brakes will have no effect.
The whistle and the bell do as you expect. There is another handle which opens the cylinder cocks, which as of 5/29/2023 is purely cosmetic, as are the sanders. IRL, cylinder cocks are used to blow condensed water out of the cylinders, and sanders are used for extra traction in slippery conditions.
Finally, most locomotives have lamps that you can turn on and off with LMB, or by using the steam-powered generator, if it has one.
And that's pretty much it! Different locomotives have different features, and levers are often in slightly different places, but they all operate on the same general principles. Locomotives are also often specialized for a particular job. For example, engines like the Eureka are specialized for high speeds with low power, while engines with shorter wheel bases like the D&RGW Class 48 are specialized for sharp turns and yardwork, while the geared locomotives like shays and heislers are specialized for steep tracks in mountainous terrain. You can find a number of resources online to find statistics for each of the different RRO locomotives.

Coupling
The 3 foot narrow-gauge railway in RRO uses what is called "Link and pin" coupling, which uses, unsurprisingly, links and pins. To couple two cars together, you need enough space to fit a link between them. Press LMB to insert a link in the coupler. Only one car should have a link. Once the link is in place, push the cars together and use RMB to place a pin in both couplers. Et voila! Your train is now longer.
Tender locomotives have unique couplers. First of all, instead of a link, tenders are connected to the cab by a drawbar. Press LMB on the tender, then back up the locomotive and use RMB to hitch it to the drawbar with a pin. For locomotives with cowcatchers, the front is outfitted with a drawbar as well, which can be extended and retracted with LMB. This link is weaker than the usual link-and-pin, so only use this for short, slow trips or yardwork.

External Tools

While straight-up modding RRO is currently very difficult, there do exist certain external tools to help provide you with a more enjoyable experience with a game that is, at times, excessively grindy.
RROx
RROx, or Railroads Online Extended, is by far the most useful RRO extension I've come across. It offers a real-time minimap (that maps your rail lines for you!), remote control of locomotives, cranes, and switches, unrestricted teleporting, cheats like free money, fast-sprint and flight, as well as optional access to all of these features for other RROx users that join your game. It even provides everything necessary to create a plugin of your own, if you're so inclined.

Railroad Studio
railroad.studio is a free online save file editor for RRO. With it you can replace trees, rename/repaint locomotives and rolling stock, delete track, cheat in money, etc. Currently the go-to save editor.

Technical Bits

Just some extra technical bits that are worth knowing:

Miscellaneous Tips


That's pretty much everything I've got. I hope that this guide has been of use to you! If I forgot something, got something wrong, or you have an idea for how to improve this guide, feel free to leave it as a comment below. Happy railroading!

2023.05.31 15:13 tejadst202 Budget 1080p destroyer gaming pc guide for people in Germany -May 2023

I just built my first custom gaming pc which i have been waiting to do so for so long.I have been using dell g5 with 1060 and it is just not enough for my requirement.
Here i share tips on how i built my gaming pc aroung 450-530 euro.
1.Ebay:Since the drop of GPU prices and CPU prices we have lot old parts in pc.However unlike USA, electronics even used are bit expensive in germany
I bought my B450 mainboard plus ryzen 5 3600 for 160 euro.You can get awyay fro 140.I bid and bought this because it has wifi builtin and it is mini-itx board.
2.Aliexpress: Stop, do not shit me.Just listen to me once.You see when i am looking for gpu for 1080p hight to ultra settings.1st thing that i learned scouring through all second hand sellers was, budget and nvidia does go hand in hand.Nvidia gpu have good reslae value which is not good for people like us who want to build budget gpc.So Amd is obvious choice.Even rx6600 is going for 180-200 euro in used market.then i came across these Elsa and Soyo rx5700 gpus from Aliexpress.Digging deep into them, they are used powercolor and XFX gpu which are modded with new shrouds and reduced powelimit in bios.
So i bought this ELSA rx5700 for 135 euro includind shpping and removed shroud gave it good clean ,repasted with arctic mx4 and modded bios to rx5700xt adjusted fanspeed.
To summarise i bought rx6600 performance for 135 euro.
3.Mindfactory,Paypal Ratezahlung and Geizhals: Mindfactory has lot offers,i bought lexat 1tb nvme for 35 euro corsait lpx 16gb CL16 kit for 35 euro and openbox endrofy case for 35euro.However i did not paid for them directly.Since i use Paypal a lot.I used Paypal ratenzahlung ansd ipay 6 euro monthly for 2 years.I kow i have to pay interest but for me it is convineient since i work as werkstudent i can pay it easily.
4.Caseking(Aeroocool,Jonsbo,Azza): Caseking has thse brands expecially aerocool which offers mini tower for 35 euro including 3 fans which is bang for buck.Sure they are not top notch quality but for busget taht is good fit.Jonsbo D31 series is very spicy mini tower but comes with no fans.Aerocool and azza has goog 80plus bronze 500W netzteil for under 45 euro whic is good.
***5.Klinenzeigen:***Ebay kleinenzeigen has som good deal around you most of the good deals are for pickup.I got my gpro mouse tha has broken reciever for 30 euro and bought 7 euro reciever in Ali express.Thats it 37 euro GPRO instead of 120euro.Also i bought logitech tkl keyboard with redswitch for 23 euro in kleienzeigen.
This post is to give expats or natives in germay to build or get parts fro deals.ALL my pourchases did not happend immediately.Over a course of 6 months, ton of patience for offers, deals and some auctions, purchases later:
I spent around euro for the follwing equipment.If not mentioned they are used.
1.Hp m27f monitor
2.Logitech GPro maus
3.Logitech TKL tastasur modded(Krytox lubed stab modd and single layer foam, and 3 layer tape mod)
4.Logitech 2.1 speaker systesm
5.PC:Ryzen 5 3600,
16gb 3200Mhz CL16(new),
650W Bequiet bronze(new),
Elsa RX5700(xt modded),
B450I aorous pro,
Endorfy signum 300,
Lexar 1tb nvme ssd(new)
I can game at 1080p high ultra settings easily .I play RPGs so my monitor comes with 75Hz and amd freesync which is good fro my needs,With SAM resizable bar enabled and xmp.Damn this destroys 1080p gaming

2023.05.31 14:39 w00tburger My first experiance with pop

Laptop: X1 Carbon 6th Gen
I have been a long time Mint user, and I have to say that I was very impressed with what POP OS had to deliver. It was and very snappy, and for a moment I had that that it was going to take over being the daily driver on my other Thinkpad.
The two things that are going to prevent me from choosing this as my daily OS at this time is the following:
  1. Cursor bug. Occationally, the mouse will dissappeart and I must go into a workspace view, or scroll to the top repeatidly so the mouse appears once again. This bug happens at random but about once an hour. It also will happen immediatly after using the touch screen, which does become a nuesance. I have updated to the latest version of the distro, and this bug still exists.
  2. Gestures. This one was interesting. For whatever reason, these changes do not apply. I have gestures installed that allow me to swith left and right to trigger Super+Left/Right to help my browsing experiance. I am browsing the left, a swipe left will go back a page, and a swipe right will move forward a page. This works beautifully except when more than one window is open. The behavior will then change to switching windows, rather then going back and forth in the browser. I had attempted to disable the Super+Left, Super+Right to switch between windows which is the default behaviors under the keyboard in POP; however for whatever reason it does not apply.
For what its worth, everything else had been fantastic. Games run great and applications load noticably faster than Mint. I had to install Unicorn for the fingerprint reader as all of the others did not recognize my hardware, and I had to do some edits in /etc/profile to run a command to fix the natural scrolling as that is broken in POP.
In the end, the inability to effectively turn off the swipe gestures ruining my browsing experiance was the dealbreaker. Once I hear that a new update is released, I cannot wait to give this an update and give it another try.

2023.05.31 14:32 Famas_1234 FFXIV soundtrack analysis: a fatigue that is called "Ancient Shackles" (@Dwiselight)

FFXIV soundtrack analysis: a fatigue that is called

Cover image: Ancient Shackles Orchestrion Roll (Eorzea Database)
The music "Ancient Shackles" is from Panda Asphodelos, but some said it's the worst kind of music to raid with. Why? The simplest answer I can compile into one is it's not engaging enough, but at what point it becomes disengaging so much it creates fatigue? Alright this seems like my own claim so I want to try quick study what happened.
The first thing I want to deconstruct is the music progression when entering Panda at first until final floor (menu > P1 > P4). At there you get hub music "What Daemons Abide", then goes to floors P1-P3 "Ancient Shackles", last being P4 "Hic Svnt Leones". These tracks share the same motif, or perhaps they're all basically Panda motif being rearranged.
  1. What Daemons Abide: menu theme, base Panda motif
  2. Ancient Shackles: rearranged Panda motif, a low intensity orchestra
  3. Hic Svnt Leones: rearranged Panda motif, a rock piece, same movement as Ancient Shackles
The fatigue comes when they played in savage because the length of the content is significantly longer. Another observation I get is I watched Asphodelos World's First live at that time, the comments I heard from streamers were that -- I paraphrased -- it's dull they could get slept.
Panda Asphodelos's setlist has the same scenario to Alexander first tier where they only have three tracks (they don't have hub music IIRC), which is Locus (A1-3) and Metal (A4), but how did Alex work rather than the former? To breakdown, here's the music in they used in Alex Father raid:
  1. Sins of the Father: a mini dungeon music before raid, a low intensity rock
  2. Locus: a rock song, a bit industrial and robotic theme
  3. Metal: another industrial robotic rock song but with different motif
Does genre matter? Can gaming activity be affected by music genre? What's the closest representation in case of gaming activity being correlated with other activities?
Alright I gonna put quick references here. I'm not in a mood of popular journals and conferences right now but i got this in quick search:
  1. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/303856493_The_effects_of_background_music_on_video_game_play_performance_behavior_and_experience_in_extraverts_and_introverts -> you can read the abstract
    1. Music may affect people performance by their personality (extrovert vs introvert). Extroverts prefer upbeat music and introverts prefer otherwise during gaming session
    2. On survey, people prefer rock music during gaming activities. Most play adventure games
    3. Statistically no significant difference from music towards extraversion in gaming session
    4. Statistically there is significant difference from music towards mouse movement
  2. https://themusicuniverse.com/how-music-keeps-people-playing-video-games/ -> implies upbeat music can improve mood and also concentration
  3. https://themusicuniverse.com/does-music-while-gaming-affect-player-performance/ -> points a music you don't like may decrease performance and mood
  4. https://www.center4research.org/can-listening-music-improve-workout/ -> while this is for workout, upbeat music can increase dopamine and makes synchronous movements with music tempo
That's enough for me. With the comparison between Asphodelos and Alex Father floor, judging by references, Father's got the appropriate music for raiding whereas Aphodelos is not due to it's genre. My evidence is that in Asphodelos, especially "Ancient Shackles", has low intensity with relatively gentle notes. If I'm exaggerating, While it's a good composition, it's in the wrong content, meaning that the sound team might have low priority on music direction to raid series. The track is in a weird shape, not quite enough to be placed whether it's a field, dungeon, or a raid music. This is worsened by appearing three times for each savage raid session (P1-P3). It's too "dull" that they (the players) rather change to external music. By the time they passed to P4, they are already fatigued enough to hear P4 music because the same motif and movements the music have, just a different genre. It is another reason at the time Abyssos came, they were relieved by new music rather than hearing every single music in Asphodelos setlist
---
Personal notes
With these references, what I get is appropriate music especially upbeat ones can increase gaming performance and also long sessions. I find gaming session can use workout as examples. I get that Ancient Shackles is good composition wise, but the lack of direction puts the track in a questionable state: damned if it's here, damned if it's there too. This is my analysis and critique to this particular track which IMO can affect the whole floor.
On the other side, personally I like HSL, but by condition in an individual setlist. HSL's composition may have weaker climax but the ride especially the drums carrying the track is something that you have to hear, which Scream doesn't have while having clear climax

2023.05.31 13:27 Styllar SGG Alpha - Impressions + AMA

SGG Alpha - Impressions + AMA
Hey all, fellow mousepad enthusiast here.

I have been using the new SGG Alpha offered by SprintGamingGear (formerly AgileCables) over the past week, and I would like to share some brief impressions on the pad in this post.
Figure 1: 500x500mm XL Square with a Lamzu Atlantis Mini in the background
Disclaimer: I was sent this product for free, as a review unit, given that I provide an honest review detailing my personal thoughts and experiences.

Packaging

The Alpha came rolled in a translucent bag, which was inside of a cardboard box - fairly standard packaging here. What was nice is that the pad immediately lay flat after opening it. In contrast to some of the other mousepads I received not too long ago, such as some X-raypad and eSports Tiger pads, this was a breath of fresh air since I did not need to spend any time gently reverse-rolling. It is also good to note that this pad has its logo placed in the bottom-left as opposed to the more common bottom-right placement. That does seem like a bit of a weird design choice in my opinion, but it does not change anything about the pad so it's fairly redundant information.
Figure 2: Package with contents

Texture

It appears to be uncoated. While I have no insights on the long-term durability of the Alpha, there is nothing to suggest that it will deteriorate quickly like a Shidenkai or Vancer Ice V2 those are both glass coated/infused and are notorious for long-term durability issues.
To me, this feels more reminiscent of the X-Axis of the X-raypad Traigun (Y-Axis on the Traigun is rougher), although it is a tad less abrasive. That is to say, it's nowhere near as rough as a Hien, AC2, or similar hybrid pads, but you won't feel the texture nearly as much as say a Hayate Otsu (it is also a lot quieter than the Otsu when moving the mouse across). I am personally not a huge fan of the Otsu, and would consider the Alpha's texture to feel more "refined" in this sense since it's a bit more abrasive but manages to not get picked up as much by mouse skates. If you are worried about this irritating your skin, chances are you have nothing to worry about.

Speed/Control

Comparing to one of the Hien's I have that has minimal wear, the dynamic friction on the Alpha is a bit higher (it's a bit slower overall), but I find it has less stopping power and relies more on your sheer mouse control than the other pads I've been pitting it against.
Using the SGG Alpha as a reference point for comparisons:
  • Hien - Slightly faster with higher stopping power and similar initial friction
  • AC2 - Slower by a small margin but less(?) control. A bit harder for me to tell because of the rougher texture
  • Traigun (tightly-knit cordura) - Faster by a small margin (slower than Hien) on X-Axis, a bit slower on Y-Axis, and with some more control but higher initial friction
  • Otsu - Significantly slower dynamic friction with higher stopping power. Furthest pad away from the Alpha out of the bunch in this sector
  • Grandmaster Pink Stitch (not to be confused with GM Pink SE) - Faster dynamic friction by a greater margin with similar control and stopping power
Note that these are subjective comparisons and are by no means definitive.
![img](2gzy7c28j43b1 "Figure 3: From top to bottom: Alpha, Otsu XSoft, Updated Traigun (non-pro), Hien XSoft, Hien Soft, GM Pink Stitch, AC2 ")
What is interesting to me is that while the X/Y on the Alpha feels relatively even throughout normal usage, the Y-Axis actually has a bit less stopping power than the X-Axis. I did turn the pad sideways to test this, but it's by a pretty insignificant margin, so I would say that it's nothing to really worry about... not a Hayate Kou situation here and more similar to the Hien's X/Y deviation in that it's not really noticeable during use.

Base

The base is nothing really special. It's a fairly generic rubber base that is more common amongst most of the more budget-oriented mousepads on the market. It sticks to my wooden desk fairly well, as almost all mousepads I use do, so I have no real concerns here. The thickness of the pad, which is not stated on the SprintGG site at the time of posting, measures to be ~4mm according to my caliper for those wondering.
Figure 4: From top to bottom: Alpha, GM Pink Stitch, AC2, Otsu XSoft

Stitching

The stitching on the Alpha is a tier above the regular X-raypad products. It leaves a bit of a smaller footprint, is decently smoother (more of a uniform height with less ridges), and is also a tiny bit more level with the pad. That being said, it is still slightly raised above the surface, but I did not have any complaints during usage. While this does not come anywhere near Artisan-level for the footprint, the height is able to come close to Artisan Mid pads (with the Alpha being slightly higher) and some of the eSports Tiger pads that I own such as the Grandmaster Pink SE, but not the Grandmaster Pink Stitch (the Alpha is also slightly higher, similar to how it is compared to Artisan Mid).

Conclusion

Coming in at $35 USD/$47 CAD (excluding taxes/shipping) for the 500x500mm XL model, I believe that this is a fairly good deal for Canadians primarily due to the domestic availability. Don't get me wrong, this is still a solid mousepad, but pricing for the US/other regions may vary with regards to shipping (I believe they have a US warehouse so shipping should not be that bad), so for those of you outside of the US/Canada, you should do your own due diligence when it comes to import taxes/duties as it may not be worthwhile otherwise.
Lastly, as a Canadian myself, I'm looking forwards to future releases by SprintGG since it seems they're starting off fairly strong. While I would not personally take this pad over my Hien, that is just because I am a sucker for the rough texture... but I can easily recommend the Alpha to newcomers interested in a solid hybrid pad that is able to differentiate itself enough (particularly with regards to texture) from a lot of the Hien clones such as the AC2 and Strider to simply be considered a decent alternative.

If you have any questions regarding the SGG Alpha or any other mousepads I own, feel free to leave a comment and I'll try my best to reply when I have time. You can also DM me on Discord @ Styllar#1407 if you would like a faster response.

Why its Time to Say Goodbye to Photoshop and Embrace the Power of Draggan
Are you tired of spending countless hours tinkering with Photoshop, only to end up with mediocre results? Say goodbye to that frustration and hello to DragGan! This powerful new tool is revolutionizing the design industry and making it easier than ever before to create stunning graphics.

In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at why it’s time for designers everywhere to embrace the power of DragGan and say goodbye to Photoshop once and for all. Get ready for a game-changing experience!

Introduction: What Is DragGan?

DragGan is a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool that can generate realistic images from textual descriptions, making it possible to create photo-realistic images without the need for Photoshop.
This has huge implications for the future of digital art and design, as well as for many other fields where images are used, such as medicine and architecture.
DragGan is based on a type of AI called a generative adversarial network (GAN), which is composed of two neural networks that compete against each other to produce the most realistic results. The first network, called the generator, creates fake images based on the text description, while the second network, called the discriminator, tries to distinguish between real and fake images. As the two networks compete, they both get better at their respective tasks, eventually leading to the generation of highly realistic images.
One of the benefits of DragGan is that it doesn’t require any labeled data; all it needs is a text description of what the desired image should look like. This makes it much easier and cheaper to train than traditional image-processing methods. Additionally, DragGan can generate high-resolution images (up to 1024×1024 pixels) despite being trained on low-resolution ones (64×64 pixels).
So far, DragGan has been used to generate images of faces, birds, and flowers; however, there’s no reason why it couldn’t be used to generate any kind of image. In the future, DragGan could revolutionize the way digital art and design are created and could even be used to help diagnose diseases from medical images.

Benefits Of DragGan Compared To Photoshop

There are many benefits of DragGan compared to Photoshop. For starters, DragGan is a much more user-friendly interface. It is also less expensive and offers a wide range of features.
Some of the benefits of DragGan include:
A user-friendly interface: The interface is very intuitive and easy to use. You don’t need to be a Photoshop expert to use it.
A wide range of features: There are a lot of features available in DragGan, which makes it a very powerful tool.
Less expensive: DragGan is a lot less expensive than Photoshop, making it more affordable for everyone.

How To Get Started With DragGan

If you’re like most people, you probably think of Adobe Photoshop as the go-to tool for image editing. However, there’s a new tool on the market that is quickly gaining popularity among professional photographers and graphic designers: DragGan.
DragGan is a deep learning tool that can generate realistic images from scratch. It’s based on the GAN (generative adversarial network) architecture, which pits two neural networks against each other in a game of “cat and mouse.” The first network, known as the generator, creates fake images that are then fed into the second network, known as the discriminator. The discriminator tries to distinguish between real and fake images, and when it can’t tell the difference anymore, the generator has effectively learned to create realistic images.
So why should you ditch Photoshop in favor of DragGan? Here are three reasons:
  1. DragGan is more efficient. With Photoshop, you have to manually edit each element in an image. With DragGan, you simply need to provide a few input images (known as training data) and let the algorithm do its thing.
  2. DragGan is more accurate. Photoshop relies on human intuition, which can be fallible. DragGan, on the other hand, relies on artificial intelligence, which is much more reliable.
  3. DragGan is more versatile. Photoshop is primarily used for photo editing; however, DragGan can be used to create realistic images from scratch, such as landscapes, faces, and more.
If you’re interested in trying out DragGan but don’t know where to start, here are a few tips:
  1. Get familiar with the basics of deep learning. While it’s not necessary to understand the inner workings of a GAN architecture, it helps to have a general understanding of how deep learning works.
  2. Familiarize yourself with popular deep learning frameworks. TensorFlow and PyTorch are two of the most popular frameworks for deep learning, and they both support DragGan.
3. Practice with pre-trained models. If you want to get started quickly without having to train your own model from scratch, there are several pre-trained DragGan models available online that you can use as starting points for your projects.
  1. Join an online community or forum. There are several online communities focused on deep learning and image generation that offer great advice and resources for getting started with DragGan.

Tips For Making Effective Images With DragGan

As the world of digital design continues to evolve, so too must the tools that we use to create our designs. For years, Photoshop has been the go-to software for creating stunning images and graphics. However, its time-consuming process and high price tag make it less than ideal for many designers.
Enter DragGan, a free online tool that uses artificial intelligence to generate realistic images from scratch. With DragGan, you can create high-quality images in a fraction of the time it would take in Photoshop. Plus, its simple interface makes it easy to get started, even if you’re a beginner.
Here are some tips for making effective images with DragGan:
  1. Start with a clear idea of what you want to create. The more specific you are, the better results you’ll get from DragGan.
  2. Use reference images to help guide DragGan’s artificial intelligence. By providing it with examples of what you want your final image to look like, you’ll give it a better chance of success.
  3. Be patient while DragGan generates your image. Depending on the complexity of your design, it may take a few minutes for the software to generate a realistic result.
  4. Make sure to save your image when you’re happy with the results. DragGan only stores your image for 24 hours, so be sure to download or save it before it’s gone!

Examples Of Successful Images Created With DragGan

When it comes to creating images, Photoshop has been the go-to software for many years. However, there is a new player in town that is quickly gaining popularity among professional photographers and graphic designers – DragGan.
It is a deep learning algorithm that can create realistic images from scratch. Unlike Photoshop, which require users to have some knowledge of graphic design, It is easy to use and can be used by anyone with a basic understanding of how neural networks work.
In this blog post, we will take a look at some examples of successful images created with DragGan. We will also discuss why we believe DragGan is the future of image creation and why you should start using it today.

Common Misconceptions About DragGan

There are many misconceptions about DragGan, which is why it’s time to say goodbye to Photoshop and embrace the power of this artificial intelligence tool. One common misconception is that It is only for professional graphic designers. However, anyone can use DragGan to create stunning images with ease.
Another misconception about DragGan is that it’s difficult to learn how to use. Again, this couldn’t be further from the truth. It is actually very easy to use, even for beginners. And with its user-friendly interface, you’ll be able to create beautiful images in no time at all.
Some people believe that It is expensive. While it’s true that It isn’t free like Photoshop, it’s still an affordable tool that delivers high-quality results. So if you’re looking for a powerful yet affordable image editing tool, then It is definitely worth considering.

Alternatives To DragGan

As much as we love Photoshop, there are some great alternatives out there that can do just as much, if not more. We’re big fans of DragGan, an AI-powered image editing tool that uses deep learning to automatically generate realistic images. But there are plenty of other options out there, so we’ve put together a list of our top picks.
InPixio Photo Editor: InPixio is a great alternative to Photoshop if you’re looking for an easy-to-use photo editor with all the bells and whistles. One of our favorite features is the ability to remove objects from photos, which comes in handy when you want to get rid of unwanted background clutter.
GIMP: GIMP is a fairly comprehensive alternative to Photoshop that’s been around for years. It offers a wide range of features and plugins, making it a great option for power users. However, it can be a bit daunting for beginners, so we recommend checking out some tutorials before diving in.
Adobe Lightroom: Adobe Lightroom is another excellent alternative to Photoshop, especially if you’re into photography. It offers powerful tools for managing and editing your photos, and you can even use it to create photo books and prints.

Conclusion

We hope that this article has demonstrated why now is the time to say goodbye to Photoshop and embrace the power of DragGan. It is an easy-to-use, free program that allows people to make amazing digital art without spending hours learning complicated software.
It’s understandable why some may be hesitant about moving away from a popular platform like Photoshop but with its user-friendly interface and powerful editing tools, It can offer users more precision, accuracy, and creative freedom than ever before. With its many advantages over other photo editing programs, it’s clear why we should all be embracing the power of DragGlan today!

2023.05.31 11:51 Sea_Explanation_7602 Gigabyte M34WQ vs. Dell S3423DWC

Hello,
I am looking to buy my first ultrawide monitor for work and some occasional gaming. At the moment I have a 27" Dell which is becoming a little small for my work needs. So I was thinking a 34" would be great.
Having both a work laptop and a personal laptop, I would like to be able to use both with one monitoKB/mouse. So I was looking at a monitor with KVM.
I settled at these 2 "contestants". The main issue is that my work laptop is restricted, so I am unable to install any software on it. As far as I know, the M34WQ has physical KVM switch, so it should work without installing any software, but I am not sure about the PbP functionality without software and how do you change inputs.
The S3423DWC seems to have virtual KVM and might need Dell Display Manager in order to work. Which is kind of a dealbreaker for me in this case.
Any other opinions about these 2 models? or any better alternatives in this price range?
The M34WQ has many favorable reviews and apart from the general IPS panel issues (glow, bleeding), only 15W PD (which is no issue, because even a 65W monitor is not enough for any of my laptops) and "fake" HDR, it seems great. My only concern is the fact that is flat, and I will use it from aprox. 70cm viewing distance.
The S3423DWC seems more "office" oriented, has curvature. But details about this, are kind of scarce.

2023.05.31 11:40 onskaj [PC] [00-05] Mafia/Gangster type game with 3D graphics similar to twinsen's little big adventure 2; mouse controlled your character

This game was 100% from some kind of magazine, added as a full version. Most likely 2000-2005 era.
- very similar graphics to "twinsen's little big adventure 2" game but slightly better - you were playing as a gangster in a dark navy/grey suite (I don't recall controlling different characters in this game) - your goal was to do small and simple missions in the city - it was rather cartoony, more kid friendly type of game - I recall only 1 map and it was a small sqare map with only city/buildings/roads/pedestrians - you could look at the map from whatever angle you like but I think camera was focused on the guy you were controlling - mouse was used for most if not all actions in the game - you could use taxi instead of walking (the taxi would ride on it's own, you couldn't control it, I think)

I have a brand new PC. I only play single player games. Whenever i play Dead Island 2 the game stutters. Sometimes It makes me feel like skipping frames. It happens when I run around, and move my mouse. It happens where the crowd zombies settle during in actions. To find the solution I have changed lots of my pc specs at the end It became a brand new one. The issue still persists. I gave tons of money. I started to feel like disapointed. I only play 1 - 2 hour so What I expect from the pc shows butter smooth gameplay. I use msi afterburner frametime graphs. Whenever the graph increase suddenly, even Its a small jump I can feel it so much.Thats why, my gaming exprience die. Mostly It happens after 10 mins gameplay. Jittering gameplay really bad. All temps are fine by the way. I am waiting your helps, thanks everyone.
