    I never felt the advantage to expensive mouse and keyboard personally. I use a cheap $40 RGB mouse and keyboard that came as a set and both feel great to me.

    I have a sony x930e, probably newer model out by now, its been good. VA panel with local diming, blacks can get pretty dark, especially when there is a lot of black on the screen or dark scenes. Havent had any problems. It has android tv built in but I dont use that since I already had an nvidia shield so I kept using that. HDR on ps4pro looks really good.

    I got the sony x950g today actually. Looks amazing in the store, but I would need to calibrate it correct?

    Hmmm the Acer x27 Predator which i like a little more is still ~1400, but I was just at microcenter and they have the Asus PG27UQ for 1100. Hmm decisions decisions. Also considering the microATX corsair crystal 280X instead of the 680x i posted above, with the appropriate mobo. (Microcenter still has a bundle for the board + 9900k for about 45 bucks cheaper than pcpartpicker shows.) Could potentially save like 500 bucks by going with the microATX build with the Asus PG27UQ. Not to mention i have a 1200+ 2080ti in there and the EVGA black is only like 1050. Feel like i could still get a pretty nice build and save a bit, not that i really need to. Just weighing the options. Was also my first time in microcenter today. Pretty cool tbh.

    Does anyone know what the best gpu I should have for my comp? I've got a ryzen 5 2600x, 16gb ddr4 ram, 1tb ssd and a 1050 ti from my old comp that i'm now looking to upgrade. I play on a 1080p monitor and I'm not really looking at going 1440p for a while.

    I want something that will get the most out of my cpu but not a gcard so good that the cpu starts holding it back.

    tyty.

    Been looking at that Lian Li case now. Seems like the perfect size and still a dual chamber. Like a kid in a candy shop. Too many choices.

    There are two ways to approach this.

    High FPS 1080p. The RX580/590 or 1660 Super.
    OR
    Ray Tracing with mins staying above 60 fps which would likely require a 2070S, but could be used for 1440P if you decided to go for it.

    Your computer is at salvage point. You can probably get 400-500 on FB marketplace.

    Your upgrade is the processor. Which would require a new motherboard and CPU. This would cost 200-350 more.

    The problem is that you could build a new computer that DESTROYS your rig for 700.

    RX 590 is pretty much approaching the end of relevancy IMO. Other than that, not a bad price for a pre built PC.

    Not at all. And there's dozens of good youtube videos of how to do it step by step.

    Can confirm...

    I basically had my 10 year old build my last rig with minimal help and some youtube videos.



    I used that series. Watched a step with him. Paused it for him. Then had him do the step. Helped him learn a lot along the way.

    The component video isn't super relevant in this month as 2019 has had significant price/performance changes.

    The build I linked above is basically the Ultimate 1080p 144 hz gaming machine.

    keeping my old one for the time being. gtx 1080 w aftermarket heatsink (temps never go above 55 with oc)

    i'm not going to upgrade my gpu until there is a monitor with the following specs:
    4k ultrawide
    ~40in
    100hz+ g-sync

    until then, my 1080 will power my acer x34 just fine

    I currently game on a console with 75” Tv. I just bought a 43” curved ultra wide gaming monitor for my new pc. I was thinking of moving all of my gaming to the smaller gaming monitor instead of the larger 4K tv. Is this a good idea?

    Thanks. I have heard that the picture quality and response time is superior. I guess that I will leave the tv for movies and shows.

    Working on a new build. This is my dad's new work computer. Normally he just buys a prebuilt, but they are literally charging 2k more than parts cost for assembly. Considering starting a side business if I can operate on those margins.

    This is a workstation for CAD with solidworks. Needs to be able to do BOTH the design and the rendering functions, but most importantly be 100% stable.

    The biggest abnormality is the GPU. I am picking up an RTX 4000. This thing solely exists due to the corporate market. It is a blower designed detuned 2070 (non-super) designed to deal with lots of polygons at low fps. The next tier up is $2200+ for a detuned blower 2080 non-super. Even for a work computer I can't justify that price.

    For the CPU I was torn between the 9900KS and the 3900X. Solidworks is weird because some functions like frequency and some like cores. I ended up choosing the cores, because the user often makes tweeks to parts WHILE a render is in progress.

    Motherboard is a challenge. All the review sites seem to HATE MSI x570 versions due to their crappy VRM. However, they also have the highest user reviews. I ended up going with the X570 Taichi because of its feature set and amazing VRM. The primary user complaint seems to be that the front USB-C ports get blocked by longer cards. I do not foresee that being a problem with a blower design.

    For the SSD I had two possibilities. The 2TB 660p or a 1 TB proper NMVE drive. Ended up going for the Sabrent Rocket as it is just a hair slower than the Samsung variant, but significantly cheaper.

    For Ram I refered to https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3...-uclock-mclock
    He is currently using 26 GB under full load so I wanted to give him head room, but I did not see him ever going beyond 64 GB. The Trident Z NEO 3600MHz CL16 seems to be the sweet spot before things get stupid expensive. This will not be overclocked as stability is priority one.

    He still needs a disk drive for certain projects so I picked up a well reviewed drive that can do it all.

    The case choices were limited by the needs of that disk drive. It is in a professional environment so I did not want a window and noise was a concern. Ended up going with the Fractal Design R6 usb c.

    So I installed the new mobo/cpu/heat sink/ram without any hiccups (fortunately). Just swapped everything, plugged everything in and boom power on immediately

    Didn’t even need to get a new windows key or even log in. Just went straight to the home screen which I wasn’t expecting

    One issue though. The Noctua nh-d15. I’ve noticed the fans (2) rattle a bit because they aren’t super securely pressed against the heatsink. Has anybody had this issue with Noctua? Any suggestions on how to fix it? I kind of just want to put a big rubber band around the entire heatsink and that should hold it in place but that doesn’t sound like the best idea
