    your eyes will never tell the difference between 144hz, 300hz, or 360hz. It's just a marketing gimmick. If anything, it is bad because most games won't keep up with the 300 hz refresh rate in terms of FPS so you will get screen tearing.

    Just download the official Windows 10 ISO (using the download tool at the below link) and start fresh, you don't need the dell image:

    As already mentoined below. The Dell image is probably already old and you don't need it.

    Looking at your current sig, that is like the opposite direction of your former laptops that were power rigs and then some. You've gone in the opposite direction it seems @Spartan@HIDevolution !

    I realized that I always bought the latest and greatest gaming laptops (out of habit) but I never play any games anymore. I have a bun of Steam games but I never even touched. them due to the lack of time and probably not interested as much a I was younger in gaming. So now all I need is a laptop/desktop that I can do my work with which is all done through a web browser and perhaps edit a video here and there for my Instagram.

    I've not tried 144hz but i can see the difference between 120hz and 300hz. It's ever so slightly smoother, does it give me a advantage when gaming? (no not really).
