    Using Faster Native RAM Speed on 7th, 8th Gen Intel

    I have a couple of PCs with 7th Gen and 8th Gen Intel CPUs. My understanding is that they natively support 2400 MHz and 2666 MHz RAM respectively. One has an i7-7700 CPU with a MSI Z270-A Pro motherboard and 2x8gb 2400 MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM. The other has an i3-8100 with a Gigabyte...

    Workstation on a Budget

    Thanks for the advice. A modest sized SSD is a good idea and the price increase is surprisingly small. Most low-end motherboards specify "supports 1600MHz RAM"; does that mean they won't support something faster? Would 8GB of faster RAM be better than 16GB of 1600MHz RAM? I ranked all...

    Should I buy a Sony Flip?

    I'm looking to replace my three year old 13" Sony VPCSB laptop with a new one. My biggest reason for doing this is speed. It has 4GB of RAM, and a 2.3GHz i5-2410M CPU. The ATI graphics card is toast so it uses the on-chip Intel GPU. My school work requires a lot of simulations on MATLAB and...

    $1500 Gaming Biuld

    Ok, I agree on the RAM, Would SSD really add that much performance for the price? I tried to lean away from gigabyte cause they havn't released there A lineup If I did go Gigabyte, I would probably wait a bit in which case I would also wait for the 660 I don't really intend to overclock just...
