Are you playing games? If so, what games? If not, what will you be doing?

I'd upgrade the PSU to something a little more well-known, just to be safe - but I'm no sparky so I'm not sure if the aerocool is good or not.

None are that good, but I hear that MSI isn't too bad and if their GPUs and PSUs are anything to go by EVGA's mobo customer support is probably good too.

In my opinion they're all pretty slow and bad. Best options are Plays.tv (people seem to get mixed results but for me it's amazing) or Shadowplay if you own a NVIDIA GPU. OBS is still the king if you're streaming however

Good choices here. I'd get rid of the Corsair fans, they do look cool and will keep your PC a little cooler but it will add to the noise and the cost. Maybe wait until Pascal and Polaris are widely available and reviews are out though better pulling the trigger.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "ASUS strix gegorce gtx 980 ti oc VS geforce gtx 1080"

The 1080 will probably beat the 980 Ti quite comfortably, so I wouldn't call it mediocre...

I'd wait until the 1080 and 1070 get their fair share of reviews, and maybe wait for Polaris to come around, it should only be a few months away. Remember when the 970 came out, and the 390 a few months after which was undoubtly the better option?

I wouldn't compare the 668b and the 558s, they're very different headphones - most notably because of the "Sennheiser sound."

+1 for Sapphire. My brother has a R7360 from them and it is incredibly quiet and keeps the card cool. I am finally picking up a GPU today as well - an R9 380 from them :D

I dunno I just put together a Mini ITX PC for my brother yesterday and temps were quite cool with his 1TB Barracuda, not sure about power. That does make sense though, and I don't need the drive too quick because it's not for games etc. Thanks!

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Which switch..."

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

Logitech RGB keyboards are not good compared to Corsair or G.Skill. May I also recommend Ducky, KBParadise, Vortex, E-Element and Steelseries (last two do not use Cherry MX, but I hear really good things about the switches used in the E-Element RGB over at /r/mechanicalkeyboards) to you for other brands to consider. I can wholeheartedly recommend Vortex in particular; I have a Vortex POK3R and holy damn is it amazing.

Good choice indeed, OP. If you have a strict-ish budget this is a good one to go for.

Razer switches feel strangely good IMO but keep in mind they are made by Kailh, and are known to be inconsistent in multiple aspects across switches sometimes - this can even be a problem on a single keyboard with different keys have different travel times.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "IPS Monitors"

  • 52 months ago

IPS generally is much prettier and has more accurate colours than a TN, or even a VA panel (funny because both are made by AUO). If you're a gamer buy a quick TN panel. If you're a person who needs accurate colour reproduction (e.g. Professional drawer, video editor, etc) then buy an IPS. If you're neither of these buy a decent TN.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First time build. Need a solid gaming PC. I already have case and optical drives. Most likely buy OS on Ebay."

I can't really help, but please don't buy an OS from eBay - you'll likely get something shady. If you're looking to get an OS on the cheap just get Linux - e.g. Mint or SteamOS or even Elementary. I have used the latter-most and liked it a lot but recently switched because it gave my SSD some troubles, so PM me about any questions you have :)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Last decision to make; monitor! Computer built, specs included."

In your situation and with your GPU I'd check out the AOC G2460PF - a brand new 1080p 24" 144hz panel with FreeSync support for cheaper than the VG248QE and XL2411z - at least where I live (Australia), anyways. I recommend reading about it here. I'm considering the monitor myself as well :)

Oh, and good luck - picking a monitor seems to be the hardest part of part picking - at least for me, anyway.
