    Does a non terrible media player exist

    Hi all I have a spare monitor that I'm trying to convert into some form of media player for a not well off family member. I'll be paying for whatever solution it ends up being, so I'm weighing up the options. Personally I feel like just buying some old chitty pc would work better than a...

    Is it safe to keep large amounts of money in your savings account?

    Or do you store it elsewhere? I pulled out a lot of my crypto recently which is basically all my life savings and it's just been chilling in my savings account and I'm a bit worried about back and forth in and out of altcoin/luno with large amounts of money. Granted I do have daily limits...

    Is user benchmark inaccurate?

    I was comparing the 11400f to my cpu, the 8700. And it looks like decent progress about 13% faster in every aspect. But if I look at gaming benchmarks, they're virtually identical. I know gaming isn't really an exact science because of gpu and resolutions etc but even like looking at cpu...

    Stuff like Dolby Atmos, I bought it through the W10 App Store. I have no code/product key or account with Dolby. So if I get W11, can I still use those apps? Im not even sure if I can remember my login details its been so long since I've had to use them.

    Is i9 9900s worth it?

    Hi all, Wondering if I should upgrade cpu only, seems you can pick up an i9 9900s for around 7k. Or if it's better to just add a bit more and get mobo and cpu instead but 11th gen/wait for 12th gen. I see in benchmarks that 11th gen i5 is almost as good as i9 9900 unless I'm wrong? I'm...
