    Best answer: This is what I would do: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4fYxPs

    * Definitely have to go with Kaby Lake since prices are the same as Skylake except Kaby Lake is newer
    * Gigabyte GPUs right now are generally higher quality I find, that and Evga. This one has a nice backplate and good cooling.
    * I'm a fan of the 400C, very similar to the S340 Elite but just higher quality in my opinion.
    * I would get a Corsair RM/Evga NEX/G2/G3/Seasonic PSU, they're very high quality and not worth a lot more. They'll just last a lot longer and they have a much lower chance of failure.
    * Also H270 vs B250 gives you more features such as RAID etc.

    Also Brian has a good point regarding Ryzen, that might be a good trade-off for you in terms of productivity vs gaming, though the only point I would make is that Kaby Lake will still be better for gaming.

    Hope this helps.

  • Are computers still being used anymore?

    Best answer: Yes they are, at every workplace you go. In fact it's the most used as not every employee can be given a laptop.

    Best answer: "Why is apple so expensive?"

    Why worry about it? Just buy what you want. BMW has no better power than a Honda. Rolex keeps no better time than a Timex.

    The market place is big with room for a hundred brands. If you spend hours a day arguing that a certain brand should not exist, you are missing out on life. You might ask "why is Louis Vuitton so expensive?" but you are not really asking for knowledge. The answer is it is good quality and people will pay to have it. Sure, J.C. Penny sells equal quality for half the price, but people buy what they like, so just quit this sort of brand badgering and let live.

    No one here is going to change your opinion of Apple. You already believe what you believe. Would you ask "why do Catholics believe what they do?" either you hate Catholics and we will never change your opinion or you are worrying about dumb things, such as the color of cell walls in a prison.

    As to a hater's "answer"....

    "Condensation in the northern US and other cold environments going warm-humid to cold has been known to void warranty."
    Nonsense. If there were a grain of truth to this, Andy L would cite his source of evidence.

    "Apple hides information."
    How? Do they scrape off the part numbers from the chip? More nonsense.

    "They are more expensive to repair."
    Again, Andy L has no proof, just making up rubbish.

    "They also are particularly designed to be very difficult to upgrade anything and upgrades are bigger profit margins when added new."
    Andy L has no secret knowledge of why Apple designs a computer the way it does. The industry is moving slowly to more full-module design, like for phones. Can you "upgrade" a phone? No. Is that a reason to hate a company that sells an un-upgradable phone? No. Same with a modern notebook computer. Apple drives the industry on design. Five years from now 95% of all brands of notebooks will also have memory that cannot be changed. As to the higher performance choice being a higher profit %, again Andy l has no inside secret info about these profit percentages.

    All of this comes from a hater's point of view. When someone seeks out questions about a brand and spouts unsubstantiated nonsense, he must have some bad experience that curves his logic and burns in his heart.

  • What do I do when my HP laptop says there s a problem with the hard disk (3F0)?

    I ve done all diagnostic tests and it s passed. There was water on my desk but it s hardly likely it got in my computer. I also updated my laptop and it was fine, but then the screen went all black until I opened the BIOS and F2 options
