    Nvidia’s new G-Sync monitors let you switch between 1440p and 1080p

    Why are we still focusing on resolutions well bellow those of cheap gaming consoles?

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    At this point it makes more sense to connect a PS5 and Xbox to a living room OLED than it does to build a new gaming PC. Unless money just doesn't matter.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is real

    Not until you can buy one, and really not until you can buy one for MSRP.

    I look at this every sale, but don't know if I want another several hundred hour open world RPG. I am also thinking about Wasteland 3.

    Diablo 4 - The Real Official Thread

    I am really looking forward to it. The environments are all blacks, grey, and browns. A bit boring. Other colors could be used. Green forests, white snow, yellow fields, etc.

    HELP: Upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, turned on Bitlocker, and now get Windows Install prompt on reboot

    Thanks for the suggestions. I guess I didn't update this as the thread took a turn. I ended up reinstalling from a flash drive. All of my data was on other drives so I wasn't worried.

    HELP: Upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, turned on Bitlocker, and now get Windows Install prompt on reboot

    I don't use Facebook, and my wife just posts some photos here and there. I did password protect a couple of Excel files individually. As long as I have the password for each drive and the recovery codes, I should be fine.

    HELP: Upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, turned on Bitlocker, and now get Windows Install prompt on reboot

    The issue is that it is unencrypted if someone takes your computer.

    What do I need to know about BitLocker?

    That is the main need that I wanted it for.

    What do I need to know about BitLocker?

    I used "locked" and "unlocked" simply because there is a padlock icon in File Explorer that changes. Are the files encrypted while I log in using a password? It logs in instantly, so it is not as if it is unencrypting the disk. When I look at File Explorer, the disks all have an unlocked...

    What do I need to know about BitLocker?

    If it is unlocked when I shutdown, is it still in an unlocked state? I would not have done anything to lock it in this case, but when powered back on it is locked and I need to enter a password. I am fairly certain my motherboard from 2015 does not have TPM. Entering a password doesn't bother...

    What do I need to know about BitLocker?

    I just upgraded to Windows 10 Pro in order to have BitLocker. I have an OS drive and several data drives with the same files on them. I do not have TPM and had to configure BitLocker to use a password. It also saved recovery key text files for each drive. I am not sure how to handle these...

    HELP: Upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, turned on Bitlocker, and now get Windows Install prompt on reboot

    I did back it up to external drives before selecting "turn on bitlocker". It should also be backed up online if I needed it. Can I put installation media on the same flash drive as the BitLocker recovery file and other files? I am not sure what my Windows activation key is. The email for...
