Both are a bit OP for studying informatics (I use an upgraded hp probook 650 g1). If you can get an Asus VivoBook 15 with an intel core i5 and 16GB of ram, that will be more than enough. Most times, you don't need a fast gpu, but a decent cpu, ssd and RAM are needed, and thats what that laptop has. A low price is also good for students, and this one costs ...

If your stated options are the only ones available go for option 1. My actual advice would be to try and get the exact same set of memory down to those CL15 timings or to completely replace your current RAM sticks for a 2x16gb set. To answer your questions directly: I Can add RAM of the same type but 16GBx1 in the 3rd slot? Will it work without problems? ...

If both gpu's are roughly equal in price, there is no reason not to get the faster one. The 10600K is more than fast enough to work with those cards at 1440P without any "real" bottlenecking, especially in the more graphically intensive games. Like you said, you're probably overthinking it a bit. At the end of the day some part of your pc will be ...

When you have a CPU bottleneck, a faster gpu will not make your pc slower, and in some tasks, a faster gpu will still make your pc faster, so if they are about the same price, I would always go for the faster option. The only concern is your PSU, because you need a lot of power to drive a 3070ti (300W) and a core i5 11600k (100-250W). If your psu is rated ...

could my the graphic card (NVIDIA GTX 570) be the limiting factor in the refresh rate? It is absolutely this. The GTX 570 is too old to have a DisplayPort that can handle 3840x2160 at 60hz. Update your GPU, the CPU can survive a while longer. You can easily tell if your CPU is the limiting factor by looking at the CPU usage in Task Manager. If the whole CPU ...
