    If I have 300Hz display, but GPU only puts out 100 frames a sec, any benefit?

    I'm wondering if it is worth paying a premium for a display with a much higher refresh rate than my GPU can match. Does it provide 0 benefit? A little? Less motion blur or something? Yes this is a naive question, i really don't know.

    Can You Answer My Dumb Questions? (Non-native res & dci-p3 vs sRGB)

    #1) How bad is it to game at 1440p on a 4K monitor? I've always read that playing at a non-native res is worse. How much worse? Is this still true on newer displays? Reason for question: I'm sure I'd game at 1440p and never 4k but I could occasionally benefit from 4k in non-gaming...

    Thermalright AXP-90 -- Good SFF CPU-Cooler now more readily available

    The Thermalright AXP-90 received some great reviews, it fits especially well in SFF systems. The problem was you had to order it straight from China for a long time. Now I see two sellers on EBAY who are shipping them from places in the USA. So now this option can be considered by more people.

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    johnnysd gave the correct answer here, while pendragon1 completely misses the boat. AMD requires such a high output power supply because they have to account for the fact that there is extreme variance in power supply quality. A high quality brand would cut it at 500W, a random cheapass one...

    Lack of 16:10 options is DEPRESSING

    It seems like 16:10 monitors haven't been updated for years. There are so few options. None with 120hz or other common options. 16:10 is having a resurgence on laptops now, but nothing for desktops. Is there really no hope for us?

    Where to buy new ryzen 5 2600e (45w tdp)

    The article introduced 4 processors. In the last sentence, it could have said all of these processors are OEM only. But that's not the information the author had, and not what he wrote. He went to the trouble to single out only the two X processors as being OEM only. My question was about...
