    Question Trying to pinpoint what's causing these issues.

    So, I've been using the RX 5700 XT for a little while now, but recently got a second monitor. They're both the same 1440p 144hz monitors, but when I attach both to the GPU it'll cause games to crash because the card might not be strong enough?

    Question Why does my monitor audio frequently disable itself when my computer idles?

    I've got an Asus VG248 monitor running via HDMI connection to a custom PC. When I leave the computer idle for a while, the audio for it will disable itself occasionally - the time and conditions seem to vary, so I can't pinpoint exactly what causes it. Fixing it's easy - it's the only thing in...
