    [SOLVED] How do I know if my computer can handle 3 screens?

    Please keep in mind I don't have 3 screens BUT, my computer does handle 2 screens very well. In fact when I bought it from best buy, I purposely looked for one that could handle 2 screens. I went to best buy and they didn't help me. What do I need to do in order to figure that out?

    [SOLVED] is Cooler Master G100 better than Ryzen 7 2700 stock?

    I bought a G100 to cool my i7 4790 (not 4790k), but a few months after I decided to upgrade to a Ryzen 7 2700 which seems to have a nice stock cooler, should I still replace it since I have it or use the stock one anyways?

    What kind of CPU pairs well with the Aorus GTX 1060 6GB?

    So recently I bought a new GPU (stated in the title) and have been using a Ryzen 3 1200 up until now, so my motherboard is AM4, so ideally I’d probably want to stick to Ryzen. I was thinking the 1600 or 1600x, but I checked the bottlenecker as a reference and it said my GPU would be 10% too weak...
