    Should you really get 32gb memory for a ThinkPad I7 with integrated graphics? Or is it a waste of money?

    If you were getting a new laptop with an iGPU. How much memory would you buy?

    Should you really get 32gb memory for a ThinkPad I7 with integrated graphics? Or is it a waste of money?

    Very true, however, do you play games and have 20 chrome tabs opened? I do all the time. You can get around this by closing all the chrome tabs. Why I decided to just get the 32gb was more for future proofing, I figured, I may just keep this laptop for a while. What I think may happen is a new...

    Should you really get 32gb memory for a ThinkPad I7 with integrated graphics? Or is it a waste of money?

    I decided to just get the 32gb and pay the extra money. I really doubt I will need it on a laptop, but peer pressure steered me towards and it got to a point that I would rather just spend the extra $100 and not be bothered anymore about making up my mind or thinking I didn't get enough memory...

    Should you really get 32gb memory for a ThinkPad I7 with integrated graphics? Or is it a waste of money?

    I think the best description of why I would need 32gb is that people who bought laptops 6 years ago and got 16gb instead of 4gb are still able to use their computers today. However, if you got 8gb 6 years ago, you are still doing fine with 8gb today. This assumes the same thing would happen...

    Should you really get 32gb memory for a ThinkPad I7 with integrated graphics? Or is it a waste of money?

    I purchased an Lenovo Yoga Gen 6 laptop with an I7. I only got 16gb of ram. My reasoning was that, it only has integrated graphics so I don't think I will play any games that would need 32gb. I also don't do any video editing or really anything like that. This is more my travel laptop, and I...

    LG 48CX

    I've been doing a lot of reading and can't get a straight answer. Would you be OK using the CX 48 as a PC monitor for a dining room computer where you will use for 50% web browsing, mostly youtube, and 50% netflix movie watching? Computer will be used for 2-4 hours a day max. Will leaving the...

    Why would someone pay this much for an old Samsung S27A950D?

    I was thinking of throwing it away but decided to check ebay. Why did this old monitor sell for so much money? Its old technology. https://www.ebay.com/itm/SAMSUNG-S27A950D-Black-27-2ms-Full-HD-LED-BackLight-LCD-120Hz-3D-Monitor-w-3D/333518309589?hash=item4da73d88d5:g:aWMAAOSw6NVd9WfJ

    My ASROCK motherboard is dead, what should I do?

    From what I can determine based on amazon reviews. It seems most motherboards have similar percentage of 1 star reviews. Usually all failures for 1 star. Probably most companies use the same manufacturing process and components are similar enough that most boards have the same failure...

    My ASROCK motherboard is dead, what should I do?

    I can't be certain if there was any burning smell. I looked over the motherboard and PSU very closely and see no signs of anything that burnt. It could of just been my imagination as it was faint.

    My ASROCK motherboard is dead, what should I do?

    The cpu was defective but I read that usually its the motherboard that causes this to happen. Either way Im not going to use the old motherboard because I cant understand how my cpu would just break. I never oc this cpu either. Could have been the motherboard sending faulty voltage.

    When I enable XMP with this memory computer will not boot?

    2nd question I just wanted to write this in a separate post. Is my memory any good or it is still competitive today as its 2 years old and I haven't been keeping up to date with computer technology. This is exactly what I bought, or its rated at 4266 19-26-26-46...

    When I enable XMP with this memory computer will not boot?

    Actually, this is going back 2 years, but I believe the memory did not work at 4266 advertised speeds on my Z370 motherboard. So I just ran it at around 4000. On my new Z390 motherboard, if I enable XMP and it does come up with the correct speed and timings of 4266 19-26-26-46 and I think a 1.4...

    When I enable XMP with this memory computer will not boot?

    I got it up to 4000 with the rated timings of 19-26-26-46 and it works. It seems like if I go to 4266 computer will not post. My question is if my computer runs stable at 4000 with those timings should I be happy and call it a day?

    When I enable XMP with this memory computer will not boot?

    I have this memory I bought a couple of years ago. https://www.newegg.com/corsair-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820236160?Item=N82E16820236160 I believe on my old motherboard it was never set at 4266 with XMP enabled, it worked at like 4000. I got a new Z390 motherboard and enabled XMP. The...

    My ASROCK motherboard is dead, what should I do?

    Thanks, so I did what you said and removed all of the components. Still nothing. I tried a different psu and it did the same thing, psu did not turn on I decided to buy a new motherboard, a z390 aorus pro. I also picked up a new psu a corsair rm850x. Guess what, the computer just keeps...
