Are you playing games? If so, what games? If not, what will you be doing?
Definitely definitely definitely the 144Hz. It's beautiful in CS.
Vortex Pok3r w/ red switches, ss rival, lg 24gm77, mionix sargas something, dt990 premium, shure sm58. Love every one of them to death.
Because red means it goes faster
OEM design by any chance?
Do you have to get a gaming headset? Probably not the best thing to start youtube off with.
Also I should have pointed out this PC is not for NAS use - it'll be used for storing games, videos, movies, etc
Thanks for the link!
Thanks for the reply but why would you consider them mediocre?
I'm out of the loop, what's the deal?
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.
It's not too bad for how much it costs. What are you planning to play and at what res?
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.
I'm sure 95% of people won't get this for their father lmao
Good advice. Thanks.
Insurgency is awesome. Unfortunately I can't play online because I'm so bad at it ;p
I do have Skyrim but I haven't played it yet - need big HDD. I'm scared I'm gonna install too many mods
CSGO. My life is ruined
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
Wats de wecommended amount
Haha I know what you mean, but there isn't really anything worth waiting for after this for a good while.
Well if you want a few more LEDs inside maybe try get one of these. Not on PCPartPicker unfortunately so you'll have to add it as a custom part
Yep, I've had a great experience with Seagate external HDDs personally.
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.
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?
Where you at?
It's okay. Avira works better for me, but it sounds to be a little more heavyweight.
I wouldn't compare the 668b and the 558s, they're very different headphones - most notably because of the "Sennheiser sound."
Then I'd go with the Castor.
+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!
Thanks! I currently have a 250GB SSD so I might buy another one (500gb maybe)
Samsung 850 EVO owner checking in :)
I know it's BS but I'm just asking if that is true at all elsewhere.
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.
Thanks - that is one of the best hard drives I've read about so far so I might go for it.
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.
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.
Cool, will check it out. Cheers
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 :)
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.
