This is the big issue, you can,t use the HDMI and A/V connection together.. When you plug the A/V cable in, it covers the HDMI port. If was able to use both, the HDMI for the image and the A/V for audio, problem solved…
I had a mate who stripped the outer cover of an HDMI cable and just left the metal frame and contacts to plug it in at the same time. My set is busted now, but I had a pair of third-party audio splitters that look just like the VGA+audio splitter but with only the audio cables, and they fitted and worked fine with visuals over HDMI.
Anybody currently rocking an M.2 drive in their pc?
I'm currently on a 500gig SSD and I'm thinking of taking the plunge to a 1tb M.2 drive. Are the benefits massive or just kinda ok? The drive will host my OS and a few games
Depends on what type of M.2. If your mobo doesn't support nvme which uses PCI-E then you will get no benefit. If it does you will see an improvement in the boot and transfer speeds, but whether it is enough to justify the cost is a different story.
Check your board specs first and then see if it is worth the cleaner look (no cables) or not. The only reason I use a nvme as ay boot drive was simply because I got a great deal on the drive.
@Tebulot if you watched or read anything about the 3000 series cards I would wait on that nvme upgrade. With support for PCI-E Gen 4 the cards will take advantage of the PCI-E Gen 4 drives that came out with Ryzen 3 and work in a similar fashion to the PS5 SSD in that data from the SSD will be decompressed and processed directly by the GPU and GPU memory instead of going through the CPU and system RAM first. That's going to make faster nvme drives worthwhile.
@Teb - Been a while since we got out since having a child but our last beach holiday was with a group of friends north of Durban in a place called "Tinley Manor". Lot's of places where you can rent a house right on/near a quiet, clean beach, with a river estuary, and fishing spots. It's a family/pet friendly spot but one that only makes sense of you're sharing costs with several people.
Out of interest, what is your alcohol of choice? How often do you booze? Once a month. or every time you die in Dark Souls?
Personally can't stand beer, but ciders are good. Usually end up with nice Rose (Imagine slanty thingy on the e). Or maybe Rum and coke. Don't get drunk though, I jealously hoard my remaining brain cells
I either drink nothing at all or once a year drink way too much, but I have to be very comfortable with the people I'm drinking with as I don't like that "out of control" feeling. I enjoy wine for the taste of it but not to get a buzz or whatever, and I like a whiskey every once in a while
