Need an external webcam

Hi, I need an external webcam to use with a MacBook Pro. General constraints - 1. Preferably would have a USB-C connection, but not a deal-breaker. 2. Do wireless webcams exist? I can't get a clear model in India but would love a wireless model. 3. Budget is something around 2-3k but can stretch to 3k for a wireless model. 4. Full HD would be really nice. Thanks!

Best Broadband/Fiber Internet provider in Mumbai

I live in Mumbai, my cable operator offers 5 Mbps only at rs 500, which I don't think is a very nice package. They say it does go to 10 Mbps but I guess after a limit, it will come to 5 Mbps. (I know the guy & his package seems to be cheap to lure people but speed is low) Any suggestions for a good ISP in Mumbai? I know there's Airtel, Hathway, Spectra & getway etc etc. Any particular parameters to look for before contacting them? Thanks I'm curently using MTNL & get around 9-10 Mbps at Rs... Re

Is anyone using a Fractal Design Define 7 Compact case?

Can someone tell me how much a top 240mm radiator will interfere with the motherboard? Will there be clearance issues because of mobo heatsink and/or RAM? I bought a 6900XT Strix LC (on the way, so no pics yet). I didn't pay attention and it seems none of the SFX PSUs suited to this build come with three separate PCIE cables. So I have to shelve my NR200 dual-rad plans.

Is there a Graphics card 101?

The only computer I've ever owned (and am currently using) is a dell laptop from 2012. While it still works okay, I'm finding that I can't play most of the games on my current library, as well as do anything as far as video/music editing.What I'm wondering is: Is there a list of graphics cards from current highest quality to older, lower quality models? Ones that can still get the job done on some games, and are cheaper? And then maybe a current expected price for them? Like how 1080s are... Rea

What is the importance of the motherboard?

I have built a few PCs now, but when choosing a motherboard I have generally gone for mid to low end. I just look for something that supports the components I want and that's it really. I have never really understood or seen the importance of getting a good motherboard. I have always thought the high end ones just include on board graphics which I dont need. Am I wrong about this, does the motherboard have a larger effect on a build than I think?

Hi, I need headphones for conferencing etc. My old headphones are broken, and I am looking for new ones. Type:- Over the year (no in ear ones as they pain a lot) They should be wired only.
