Help Choosing a Pre-built Gaming PC Please

I use this to tidy up the cables:

Cable Raceway Kit, Stageek Cable Management System Kit Open Slot Wiring Raceway Duct with Cover, On-Wall Cable Concealer Cord Organizer to Hide Wires Cords for TVs, Computers - 9x15.4inch, Black


#602

Huh, do those need to be fastened to a wall somehow?


#603

I have mine screwed into the wall horizontally, but they also come with tape I think. It’s plastic, so can be cut with sharp kitchen shears. Excess wire is just bunched up inside and the cover hides the mess. Wires enter/exit anywhere along the length.

Specify your primary monitor, its in the desktop settings somewhere.


#605

Already done, which is why this is so baffling.


#606

Windows may be taking a cue from your GPU, which also determines a primary monitor based on how the monitors are connected to it.


#607

The weird thing? I switched the monitors based on which monitor – the 14" – kept waking up first. I plugged the 27" into the port that the 14" had been using, thinking that it would be that specific port, but nope, the 14" still wakes up first.


#608

When you hit Detect in Display properties, or Identify, what does it look like or do?


#609

Once I get home I can show you.


#610

I don’t think any of that will help if there’s a long enough delay in wake up time that the PC / GPU thinks only one monitor is connected temporarily

After getting rid of the cat, going for a real keyboard was one of the thing that motivated me to stop smoking.
I cherish mine in an obsessive way too now. Gotta keep it clean.


#612

Wait, what did the cat have to do with it?

Also congrats on quitting!

@BrianRubin

This is your card isn’t it?


#614

It is! Oohhh, I’mma watch this.


#615

He flat out says its the best version of the 2080ti on the market today.


#616

He makes me feel bad for not overclocking, but I don’t trust overclocking.


#617

Evga Precision X1 software has a Overclock button that does it all for you. ;)


#618

Oh I’ve seen the button, I just don’t wanna DO it. There’s also two BIOSes on the thing, one that’s specifically for overclocking.


#619

Push the button!
