You could use a KVM switch, allows you to use the same keyboard and mouse and monitor for one computer at a time:

Glad you got it solved!
Yay! Glad you got it fixed :)
If you haven't tried the drive on a different cable or port, I would try switching it around if it's convenient. Then run the benchmark again.
Huh, one of your cores seems to be suffering quite a bit. Do you have software that can record temps from individual cores?
I don't see anything terribly wrong with those scores--I'm stumped...
EDIT: Woah, your SSD... Does your mobo support SATA 3.0? That might be the culprit for some performance issues, but not as much to cause audio stutter...
Just the percentile score for your CPU and GPU is good. (for PassMark) Run some SSD tests with PassMark as well.
I think it highly depends on the server you are downloading BeamNg from. Have you tried downloading other large files from chrome? Are they also the same download speed?
Some people also suggest turning off hardware acceleration in chrome:
+1 for the info
Although, he mentioned that his all-core CPU temperature is 65C, so overheating is a only 50-50 possibility from me.
For a really quick test, the UserBenchmark .exe file is covers all critical components (CPU, GPU, RAM, and storage tests) but is not very conclusive.
I personally also use PassMark: https://www.passmark.com/
Do benchmarks show if the GPU or CPU are underperforming?
How old is the video card? May be a failing or improperly seated GPU.
Do you think the audio and video stuttering could be associated to different issues? Or do those two happen together all the time? The first course of action I can think of is removing the sound card and just using mobo onboard audio. (or just play without sound for a bit to test if video still stutters)
And to clarify, this only happens when you are gaming? Or does it happen during idle as well?
Hmm.. at this point I'm suspecting a crappy USB stick. Maybe try using Windows Media Creation Tool on your own USB and then inputting the key that came on a sticker in the original packaging during installation?
Sweet! Keep us updated :)
Like Legomaster said, could a problem with the reset/power button on the case have caused this? I would turn it on, and then use the computer without the power/reset pins in. (Pull it out after boot)
It's possible to reseat the CPU there, but I think it might be more of a problem with a cooler unless you bent a CPU pin.
41C is relatively high, actually, for idling on the BIOS.
How long does the restart take, after the crash? If it is a long time then it may be a problem with the CPU cooler since the CPU should have "cooled off" by then.
Do you have an overclock on the CPU right now?
Also here's a mental checklist for if you've installed that AIO correctly:
Ahh, a physical Microsoft USB. Have you tried plugging that drive into the 2.0 port like I said above though?
However, I suspect it may be a hardware issue, like improper CPU cooler installation.
Huuh, does this happen when you are idling? Check task manager and your temps monitor as well.
Might be a PSU issue. When the build shuts off, is it a full shutdown, or does the screen just go blank and the fans stop spinning?
If it's practical could you please detail what you used to get Windows onto the USB Stick (Rufus, Widows Media Creation Tool, etc.) and the brand of the stick?
Also, it may help to put the stick in the USB 2.0 instead of 3.0 port.
Yes; I would recommend you switch out the faulty RAM.
Yes. I especially hate the culture where players are seen as "n00bs" if they don't cash out on a skin (ahem!)
I use both. I have a Echo and a Google Home mini. They both work well, but I prefer the Google Home mini more because it's linked to my Gmail Account (hello skynet) so I can see my reminders, agenda, etc. I prefer the Echo for playing music since I have a Prime Music subscription. Both are equally capable for timers, news, turning on/off my lights etc. The Home is a bit better at the stupid questions I throw at it (ex. what is an armadillo)
Yes. That's why you have to use Rufus (if you already have the ISO file on another computer) or Windows Media Creation Tool (linked above) to create installation media. It's not the best solution to directly burn it onto a USB using File Explorer like you would for a movie or software.
Another question that may let me help you better: Where did you get the ISO file to install Windows 10? There may be a problem with the ISO file as well.
Yes, but when you boot from the USB you should see a prompt to select your boot drive.
I would try re-burning the USB with Windows Media Creation Tool. Then try booting from the USB again. I should prompt you to install Windows to the hard drive (ie not boot to the desktop)
A few minor revisions to 2Tek's build: (Will drive your price up though):

Yes, you must use special software to burn the iso onto the USB. What software did you use? Windows Media Creation? Rufus?
When you boot the PC from your USB stick, you should automatically see prompts for installation onto your hard drive. If you are directly booting into the desktop from your USB stick (quite unlikely), you probably made a mistake while creating installation media for your USB.
I just never really had the time to (pretty much applies to any game though) :/
Agreed. I was trying to stick under a strict $600 budget, but 450W definitely cuts too close for upgrades.
The Seasonic Gold line is fantastic!
Hmm.. what's your RAM usage while fortnite is open? That might be the problem.
For a microATX case, I would go with a semi-modular PSU to make cable management a bit more tolerable:

Well if you are using it for gaming I wouldn't recommend it.
To answer your question, yes, you are directly mirroring your PC desktop to your laptop.
Chrome Remote Desktop is what I use in a pinch. Relatively easy to setup and connect from a different network. Performance is very acceptable on decent networks. Works on Android, Chrome OS and Windows.
Haha, thanks for keeping us updated though! :-)
Hmm... I'm not exactly sure but seems reasonable that ISPs want to make their internet services seem be faster than they actually are.
Nah I was just playing around since your x variable wasn't lowercase :P
` >:( where is my camelCase?
I see. I like the killer sli/ac as well, but it will be an unlocked motherboard with your locked processor. Most high end boards with WiFi are on the unlocked Z370 chipset.
Yeah I'd ask her haha
Keep us updated!
Since it is a Ryzen system, maybe the 3200MHz kit you are looking at would work better.
Glad I could help! (Asus monitors are there if you look further down)
What size motherboard? ATX? Micro ATX? Thanks in advance!
CAS speeds do affect performance (lower the better), but that depends heavily on your platform (Intel Z370, Ryzen, etc). Do you have a specific build you have in mind?

In the same spot where you have your laptop in the house, what are your other devices getting on your 100mbps internet? Also is it advertised as megabits per second (number is 8x slower in theory) or megabytes per second?
