does it matter what parts they are as long as they are RGB

this is what will drive you crazy. mixing different brands with different rgb software. Why? they dont play well together.

to get a system to play with 5-6 different hardware configs and sync with one RGB software? I would like to see this :)

this question of getting hardware to work with rgb software gets asked alot. so it is a common problem.

One video the "sign" is up closer than the other, distance is not the same

Same settings, Youtube 4k recording.

you uploaded at 1080 resolution, so you can not do a comparison

your motherboard

Wireless Networking = None

must be a reason you can not get on the internet from your mom. you can connect with cable but you said that is not possible.

need a usb wireless adapter

What does a USB wireless adapter do? A USB Wi-Fi adapter overrides the computer's built-in wireless functionality, giving you a faster, more reliable connection to your available network signals through the USB port instead. Since most computers have at least one USB port, you'll typically be able to use it on both laptops and desktops.

is the home connection modem only or modem + router?

your errors point to your graphics.

Display Driver Uninstaller.

download the latest nvidia drivers and do a custom install that includes a "clean install" during your setup. Nvidia will remove prior drivers and install fresh the new drivers. All of this is in the setup.exe of the new drivers

depends on hardware/software. different hardware with same game settings may not give you the same results.

give me your youtube video you are viewing?

what is your youtube viewing resolution? This can be changed in the bottom right corner of the youtube video. And this depends on the how the recording was made.

Youtube places limits of 30 fps on 4K video if I remember. been awhile since i made a game recording :)

I find myself amazed at my recorded video because it sometimes looks better than my eye. (4K)

you only have the m.2 drive. For right now, no sata hard drives so nothing to worry about. of your 6 sata ports, 5 would be available for new hard drives, etc. The 6th sata port disable due to m.2 drive.

your motherboard manual would tell you which of the 6 sata slot is disabled. but since you have no other hard drives, no issues.

a huge decision for me when selecting video cards is the HEAT!

Video cards can be cooled by: 1-included fans, 2-air flow, or 3-water cooled.

if you live at the north pole, you wont need to worry about extra heat in the case or in your room.

When video cards can reach 70-80C !! I went with "water cooled" and can live with 26-28C temps.

u need a 4k monitor to truly see recorded 4k video. If your monitor is 1080, that is your max resolution watching 4k or 8k video

watch a 1080 recording of your game. depending on specs, that is what you should accept

you have a m.2 drive. when this slot is used for the m.2, 1 of your 6 sata ports on your motherboard will be disabled.

check your motherboard manual for the specific sata slot that is disabled.

not really an "error" but the feature of using a m.2 slot with this motherboard

if you got a monitor that is 1080 60hz......you would see a huge improvement. That TV is putting a limit on your FPS

But if your monitor only can go 30hz then setting your fps limit to 30 would be best because any fps over your monitor’s refresh speed could result in screen tearing.

Screen tearing is a visual artifact in video display where a display device shows information from multiple frames in a single screen draw. The artifact occurs when the video feed to the device is not in sync with the display's refresh rate. (This is the wiki definition.)

5960X was purchased in first month it became available in 2014. Since then only "upgrades" to select parts.

5960 was that latest that year in 2014

2080TI was the latest in 2019

I have seen youtube video's of pairing i9 9900K (overclocked) with 2080 TI and the difference of my same game was only 5 FPS. So if I upgrade the CPU, means pretty much a entire new system, which I dont need or to spend.

So I dont need the latest and greatest CPU in my plans :)

The fan is one of 3 on a h100i radiator

you can find hundreds of youtube video's on exactly this radiator and how to install the "fan".

This is not that hard to do, but scary when it is your first time to tinker with your system, correct?

When I built my first system, youtube is where I started. you can find any and all parts of your system and "how to install" video.

good luck........before you know it you will installing hardware upgrades :)

you parents might think you will spend too many hours on the laptop for gaming which may seem unproductive to them?

try asking for a X hours to game. like 2 hours a day for starters

edit: I actually read your google doc. You clearly have a lack of communication with your parents. I see why your parents only looked at the first 20-30 seconds. Your letter is about 4 pages toooooooooooooo long.

1-cost will be an issue......you need to start at home and do chores for $$ from your parents. This will help out the family and show you can be a responsible person and contributor to the family

2-you should not get to the point that the means to communication with your parents is put it in writing. When was the last time you sat down with your parents at the kitchen table and had a open discussion??

3-I dont see a problem of putting this issue in writing, only if you have no more that 5 "bullet points" that are brief and to the point. Not page after page

Contribute to the family is a starting point, but you should have started this years ago :)
