Why GTX 970 is Nvidia's Best Ever GPU - Powering 4 Monitors at 1440p and 4k in 2021 / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

Everyone wants an RTX 3000 series card, but their ain' t no stock. So if you really need a graphics card what about GTX 970 which can be had on ebay for about £120. Why a GTX 970? We'll for one thing it can power up to 4 displays without cutting a sweat! I.e. the temps remain low. Unlike most RTX 3080's that are selling for well over £800, many on ebay over £1000 that can only power 3 displays!

The GTX 970 is a great card for many more reasons for instance unlike the power hungry RTX series, with a TDP of 140 it does not need to ramp up the fans so tends to stay quiet most of the time. Check out my latest video for why the GTX 970 is a great card for those who need one right now, as I power up 4 displays 4k, 1440p and HD to demonstrate just how good this GPU truly is.

Real Reason for GPU and CPU Price Hikes! RTX 3080 Now Costs Over $1100! / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

GPU's are seeing insane price hikes! For instance, 3 weeks ago I bought and paid for a custom PC build system from Scan computers that cost £3235 with components that included an Asus RTX 3080 TUF Gaming graphics card that was supposed to sell for around $700 or £500 but cost me £750 or over $1000. However the price has just kept increasing since were 10 days ago it had risen to £780, and today jumped by another £35 to £815.

Which at the current exchange rate puts that card at over $1100 converting to $1116. This is a ridiculously crazy high price for a GPU! We are really being ripped off in the UK to a very great extent.

Warning NO Windows Licence Keys for OEM Systems! Burnt Onto Motherboards / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

When buying a new system invariably you'll opt for an expensive copy of Windows 10, I say expensive because you can pick up licence keys for near 1/10th what the system builders will be charging. And it gets WORSE! Because unlike in years past, you don't get a licence key sticker that enables you to for whatever reason move your copy of windows to another machine. Instead the licence info is burnt onto the motherboard (coded into the bios). What this means is if your motherboard dies then so will likely your copy of windows unless you are able to retrieve it from the bios before hand which I will cover how to do in another video.

AMD Ryzen Zen 3 NO UK MSRP Stock - 5600x, 5800x, 5900x 5950x Selling at DOUBLE FAKE MSRP Prices / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

AMD's Ryzen 5000 series of processors have delivered huge leaps in single core performance of upto 24% and 15% on multi-core against previous gen Zen 2. Unfortunately what AMD has failed to deliver on is actual SUPPLY of the processors, as illustrated by the state of the market in the UK where is proving impossible to buy Zen 3 processors at the various retailers such as overclockers UK, there just is no stock as what little supply PC retailers are getting is being directed towards custom build orders. This leaves the rip off merchants to price gouge, and I am not taking about the scalpers on ebay trying to sell at huge markups of products they probably don't even have, but that where there is stock such as on Amazon one is finding prices inflated to ridiculous levels that makes the Ryzen 5000 CPUs BAD value for money when compared to the previous Zen 2 processors and even against INTEL!
