  1. My current gaming rig is in my signature. I want to greatly downscale my PC, so I am interested in building a small form factor PC. I put together the following parts list to get a sense of the cost, but my budget is flexible. Canadian dollars. I'm planning to replace my monitor with one of the new/upcoming 1080p 144 Hz IPS monitors, such as the Acer Nitro XV253Q P. I want to play AAA titles with really good settings, but I don't mind if I can't maintain 144 fps since the high refresh is mainly for CSGO. I already have a keyboard, mouse, and headphones.

  2. I'll settle for a 1080 competitor. Vega pricing and lack of custom cards is disappointing so far.
  3. I guess these were ahead of their time then.
  4. Will this improve their high-end GPU offerings to compete with Nvidia?
  5. If I play in third person will I still damage my brain? :thinking:
  6. I like it. I wonder how it compares to the Define C in terms of thermals and noise.
  7. Define C is much more compact (36 vs 54.5 liters). If you don't have optical drives, >5 storage drives, and a pump/reservoir (AIO cooler will fit though), you can get away with the smaller form factor. It basically looks like the smaller brother of the Define R5. Here's a video review: You also have the option of tempered glass on the Define C, if that matters to you.
  8. For the games that you mentioned, you'll definitely appreciate 144 Hz over 1440p 60 Hz.
  9. +1 for G502. I've had bad experiences with two DeathAdders, but maybe they've improved the build quality and quality control since the 2013 model...
  10. I use an MX Master at work and a G502 at home. MX Master is noticeably heavier, so I wouldn't use it for gaming. But you may not mind.
  11. Since you have a micro ATX board, you could go a bit smaller with the Define Mini C. Here's a comparison between Define C and Define Mini C:
  12. Have you considered the Define C? It's similar to the R5, but much more compact while still fitting an ATX board. It also has front and bottom dust filters that are accessible from the front.
  13. I personally like the Fractal Design Define C. More compact than my Define S.
  14. My Sapphire R9 390 looks like it's about the same length. So massive
