    Looking to read Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, which versions please?

    They do look amazing, but as my first foray into graphic novels, that's more than I'm looking to pay, maybe one day. :D

    Looking to read Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, which versions please?

    I've just listened to The Sandman Act I and Act II on Audible and thought it was brilliant, so I'm looking to read some, but there are loads of variations out there, can anyone recommend the best way to start please? I've been looking at either the series of books (20 issues per book) or the...

    XBOX Gamepass Ultimate conversion is back for £1

    Can anyone confirm that this is still working? My GPU runs out in 2 weeks time, and I'm going to load 3yrs onto it this way if I can.

    Budget soundbar recommendation please?

    It's only for the bedroom to improve on the built in TV speakers, no room for a dedicated amplifier or a subwoofer, so hopefully a simple all in one will be better than nothing.

    Budget soundbar recommendation please?

    I've just ordered a Hisense HS214, £67 delivered, should hopefully do the job.

    Budget soundbar recommendation please?

    I'll be plugging a 4k firestick into the TV, so I don't need another streaming device, would it still be worth it just as a soundbar?

    Budget soundbar recommendation please?

    Looking to spend up to around £150 for an all in one with a built in subwoofer, it's only for the bedroom, so I don't need anything spectacular, any recommendations please?

    Any opinions on the Electriq 39" QHD monitor?

    Thank you, I think that's what I'll do, he can stick with 60fps for now, it still looks amazing on his TV anyway.

    Any opinions on the Electriq 39" QHD monitor?

    Thanks for the reply, his Hisense TV is 4k, but only 60hz, so there's probably not much point in getting a higher hz 4k monitor, as the 3070 only just gets 60fps in modern games.

    Any opinions on the Electriq 39" QHD monitor?

    My son wants to try gaming at more than 60hz, so we're potentially going to pinch his 43" Hisense and get him a similarly sized monitor. The Electriq has caught my eye as it seems ridiculously cheap for the spec, anyone got one and can let me know what they think please? He's gaming on a Ryzen...

    CPU upgrade just for gaming?

    Thanks again for the replies, it's always about weighing up the pros and cons, sell the 3600 now for about £120 and get a 5800x for about £280, or sell the 3600 next year for £80’ish and hopefully pick up a 5800x for £200'ish. I think the 60fps limit on his TV is a big factor too, a CPU upgrade...

    CPU upgrade just for gaming?

    I've just ran a quick Valhalla benchmark, 1440P everything maxed out, GPU 95 to 100%, CPU 40 to 60%, solid 60FPS.

    CPU upgrade just for gaming?

    It appears that at any resolution above 1080P, the difference is negligible, and he plays everything in at least 1440P, so probably not worth it for now, thanks for the replies.

    CPU upgrade just for gaming?

    Will it make a noticeable difference, just going from 6 older cores to 6 newer cores? I'm hoping so, but tempted by the 5800x too.

    CPU upgrade just for gaming?

    He plays most games at 1440p, some less demanding ones at 4k, just trying to get 60fps in all of them. He's currently playing Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk, Cold War, and about to start playing Elden Ring. Thanks for the replies, he's got Afterburner installed as we had an overheating...

    AMD is looking at adding Ryzen 5000 series support for B350/X370 motherboards!

    Best way to clone a HDD?

    I'm upgrading my son's storage drive from an ancient 2tb Samsung HDD to a 2tb SSD, he's got games installed on there, what's the easiest way to clone the drive so the game installations will still be recognised by Windows? Thanks.
