But how much $$$ for that laptop? Under $200 it's a good buy.

Lol I keep recommending this but Koss PortaPro is terrific value. The Massdrop version available now is just $37.99 and has a mic if you ever want to use it!

Koss PortaPro is going to blow any other headphones out of the park under $40. I don't think ANYTHING will come close to these. It's a little over $40 on Amazon, but just $37.99 on Massdrop.

Look no further than the Koss PortaPro. I can personally vouch for these and they are FANTASTIC for the price. I would expect them to cost near $100 but for $37.99 on Massdrop right now, it's an insane steal.

I've also heard amazing things about the Creative Aurvana Live! 1.0, which can be found on Ebay for $60. Consult others but I've heard some go as far as to say these are the best headphones under $200.

I don't think you can go wrong with either based on what I've heard, but from my limited audiophile knowledge these are probably your only choices. Enjoy :)

Usually you put a hyphen in between the syllables so it's difficult to understand the pronunciations you're describing. I've heard: ey-sus ("ey" as in "hey" and "u" as in "trust") and ey-soos.

I used to say ey-sus, now I say ey-soos. From what I've heard, ey-soos is more correct because they are a Taiwanese company, but I haven't seen any official information.

Topre is expensive but feels great and is really quiet (quieter than the quietest mechanical switches). You can also do MX silents, which are pretty awesome.

Put pointer AND middle finder on the left click, and alternate pressing each finger rapidly. You can also tense up your arm and pointer finger, and "shake/vibrate" your arm to get RIDICULOUSLY fast cps, but that is the kind of thing that will "wreck" your wrist/arm.

Problem: Razer makes wonderful mouses (assuming you have large hands), mediocre headsets, and terrible keyboards. No comment on mousepads.

I would recommend getting much more quality peripherals to your choosing. Consider buying used, particularly the keyboard as you can replace the keycaps.

Install the app called "sleep cycle" for iOS and android. It's FANTASTIC! It uses the gyroscope or microphone to "listen" to you while you sleep (O.O) and create a graph to show what kind of quality of sleep you are getting. It has the option of creating a "time period" to wake you up (between 7-7:30, for example) to make sure you are awoken when you are in a lighter sleep. It's basically a really advanced alarm app that catalogues your sleep quality every night. Give it a shot, it's free (and no ads!).

The thing is drastic changes in sleep will always make you feel tired. You gotta commit to something for a few weeks and I can't promise anything, but often the results are tremendous! I will do some research when I have some more free time. Thanks for having an open mind!

Yea, but low amounts of sleep have ben shown to correlate with depression, stress, and low energy and focus.

I think this is information that is generally misunderstood. You don't "get used" to less sleep. You may want to experiment with more to see how you feel! You might have more energy and focus than ever before!

According to studies ( I don't have any links, you'll just have to trust me here), you can't "get used" to less sleep. Adults should typically get 6-8 hours of sleep, with 7 or 8 being ideal. Some adults need less, and some need more, but it is exceedingly likely that 4.5 hours of sleep is NOT enough for you. I would recommend trying to get 6 hours for a couple weeks and see how you feel. At first, it might seem like you are throwing away time and productivity, but soon you may realize that with more energy and focus, you feel better and get more done.

Just a suggestion. This is coming from someone who used to get 4-5 hours of sleep then switched to 6-8.

How thin and well built is your gaming laptop? MacOS is tweaked specifically to the hardware so it feels SO fast. They have great SSDs and RAM, so you will experience super responsive performance on a macbook. Lightning performance paired with intuitive software and a developed ecosystem make apple products a compelling option for some.

A gaming laptop is a completely different beast that has no business being compared to a macbook.

Macbooks are great and I'm glad there's an option for everyone.

Really, REALLY loud, but I've never tested. I typically have the speaker's volume knob on 7/10, and I listen on medium-low volume with windows volume at like 15/100. It could get way louder than I would ever want it.

Try a different PCIe slot and make sure no CPU pin are bent. It sounds like you have a flawed GPU, but if you already RMAed it once, it's highly unlikely to have received 2 broken cards in a row.

Overwatch is optimized for 6 threads, but yes it's a relatively easy game to run.

However, competitive players want maximum FPS to reduce frame latency.

KSP is made for 2 threads, but benefits 15-20% from 4 cores/threads. Your CPU has a lot of cores, but they are weak. If you want to upgrade on a budget, get the pentium g3258. If you have more money, get a newer i5.

My KSP isn't great, the game isn't greatly optimized. I have a 6600k @4.6GHz. I'll check FPS when I get home. I run mods like scatterer and parts/planet mods.

I bought a somewhat specific power cable from eBay for just $4. Just enter the specs into google and look for aliexpress/ebay or others.

You could also potentially contact the manufacturer to try to buy a replacement.
