[PC] Ask The Experts Thread

Need help here. Got a new GPU GTX 1060 3GB.  It's got HDMI, DVI-D, and DisplayPort

 

My monitor is pretty old and has only 1 HDMI and 1VGA port. No DVI. 

So, to connect both my PS4 and PC, should I get a HDMI switch  or a DVI-D to VGA adapter like this?

Right now, I'm just swapping HDMI cables from PS4 to PC, Would that damage the ports/GPU in the long run?

 

Which would be better? Also can someone suggest a model? Are the ones I've linked to good enough?

Hdmi switch will be easy and better. Never ever hot swap hdmi cables.

Hmmm... Okay. 

My Samsung Tv's Hdmi went kaput when the technician opened the Tv and saw the motherboard, he asked if I had hot swapped it which I had been doing for a while. He said never to do that on any brand of Tv's if its Hdmi input.

^ That is nice of him, so did he change the HDMI-IN port or the entire PCB had to be swapped out? 

MB had to replaced since all modern Tv's have video inputs on the PCB and cannot repaired separately.

I am getting this update error on my laptop since last couple of months. I have tried a lot of things but to avail - including manual downloading but it says not supported for all files I downloaded(I am not a tech expert). What should I do to correct this?

 

Thanks

My brother is building a PC, his requirements are Coding/Programming & gaming, here is it's config,

 

Cabinet: Cooler Master masterbox lite 5 RGB

Motherboard: Asus ROG Z370-F Gaming

Graphic card: GTX 1060 3gb

Processor: Intel I5 8400

Ram: TridentZ 16GB

HDD: 1TB WD blue

SMPS: Coisair VS 550

 

Is the motherboard good ? Also there are a few changes we feel need to be done, first of all is 1060 3G good or should it be replaced with another nvidia or amd card, max budget for it will be around 22k same as 1060 3G max price. Secondly i feel i5 8400 should be replaced by 8500, WD blue should be replaced with black, please suggest good ram of 2666 mhz frequency as OC ram is not needed. Also suggest a PSU fr upto 7K [ no seasonic as it comes with a 2 pin cable]

Which SSD should he buy for Rs.5500 ? Which CPU Cooler to get CM 212 or Noctua U12S or U14S max cooler budget Rs.5500, for U14S cabinet should be changed

Opinions on Hyperx Cloud? I need to replace my aging Sennheiser. 

 

Would prefer a good audio headphone. Looking at Sennheiser HD 280 and Audio technica ATH m40x as alternatives. Closed back only.

For audio, better to get Audio Technica. 

Hyperx cloud is one of those rare gaming headphones which is not a rip off but it still isn't very good for music.

I only need it for gaming though. Rarely some movies. Almost never any music. 

Then HyperX is very good. I have cloud core. Well worth the money. Great sound quality and most of all they are super comfortable. You can wear them for several hours without feeling discomfort.
