  1. need extra audio ports

    If you aren't looking to hook up an XLR mic or anything and just want to use earbuds something like this will likely suffice: https://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Headphone-Microphone-Aluminum-Compatibility/dp/B00NMXY2MO/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1533940720&sr=8-8&keywords=usb+sound
  2. 8+cm Mic stand?

    You'll either have to modify an existing clamp or get an arm that supports an insert like the PSA1: https://www.amazon.com/RODE-Swivel-Mount-Studio-Microphone/dp/B001D7UYBO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1533919588&sr=8-1&keywords=psa1 You'd need to do something like this with the Alex desk:
  3. Sound Card USB problem!

    You could use an active extension to retain signal strength, and a powered powered USB hub to retain power: https://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-Hi-Speed-Extension-U026-016/dp/B0002D6QJO/ref=sr_1_sc_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1533849858&sr=8-3-spell&keywords=usb+active+repeater+exstension https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Individual-Switches-included-HB-UMP3/dp/B00TPMEOYM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1533850292&sr=8-5&keywords=usb+3.0+powered+hub The cable alone may work, but you really want to make sure you're providing enough power to the card.

  5. Hiss (AT2020 XLR)

    I am not surprised you're experiencing poor mic quality and noise running an AT2020 through your onboard mic input. It could be the pre-amp too, but I presume it is a combination of both. Could you link me the "phantom power supply" you are using? I am very confident that even a lower end USB audio interface will greatly alleviate or even completely eliminate your issues: https://www.amazon.com/Behringer-UM2-BEHRINGER-U-PHORIA/dp/B00EK1OTZC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1533848819&sr=8-1&keywords=um2
  6. SM7B + Audio Mixer and Cloudlifter

    I've never had a good experience with an inline low pass or high pass barrel filter but the CL-1 works as advertised. Shure themselves cites the CL-1 as "useful" in conjunction with lower gain interfaces and the SM7B in their FAQs: Even on my Fireface UC, which is pretty dang high end, I experience more promising results with the CL-1 in-between a gain hungry dynamic microphone and the interface.
  7. Hiss (AT2020 XLR)

    I'm a bit confused as to what you have the AT2020 plugged into exactly, could you please elaborate? You must have a mixer, pre-amp, or interface between the mic and the computer.

    I definitely think you need a 9 series NVIDIA GPU or up to encode what you're trying to, even my 7900X can't handle 3440x1440 @ 100FPS encoding.
  9. SM7B + Audio Mixer and Cloudlifter

    Do you already own the SM7B? The reason I wasn't factoring in the total shipping cost is because it would be shared between the items as far as I know. SM7B + Scarlett Solo + shipping = 475 SM7B + AG03 + Shipping = 493 Definitely more of a decision if you already own a SM7B, if you weren't planning on using the AG03's features at all that's 40% savings. Although I still think you'll have a worse noise floor with the Solo.
  10. SM7B + Audio Mixer and Cloudlifter

    You will see many forum posts suggesting use of EQ with the SM7B, it doesn't work best with everyone's voices flat. But even without thinking about that, the AG03 is only $103 on Thomann brand new, if you bought the SM7B and the Scarlett Solo on Thomann (which is still cheaper than amazon) you'd only save $18. The AG03 is the clear winner in functionality, it also has a much better noise floor than the Scarlet 2i2 which I owned for 4+ years before upgrading to my Fireface UC. Well worth the extra $18 IMO, of course in the end the choice is yours.
  11. SM7B + Audio Mixer and Cloudlifter

    My go to mixer when people want me to setup their audio is the AG03, every other mixer below it in price is basically hot garbage. Gives you a lot of control over your audio especially if you have multiple PCs or want console audio through your headphones. The USB input switch allows you to send only the mic in through USB, all inputs, or all inputs + USB loopback, very useful. That being said it doesn't have the most powerful mic gain, I think it's something like 46dB, Shure recommends mixers with 60dB at the least for the SM7B. Personally I believe the AG03 + the SM7B and a CL-1 is a great option. Thomann is a great place to pick up brand new equipment for cheap, you can save around $60 (with sipping) on the AG06 + SM7B, however the CL-1 is surprisingly cheaper on amazon: https://www.thomannmusic.com/shure_sm_7b_studiomikro.htm https://www.thomannmusic.com/yamaha_ag03.htm https://www.amazon.com/Cloud-Microphones-CL-1-Cloudlifter-1-channel/dp/B004MQSV04/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1533760022&sr=8-2&keywords=smb7
  12. Yamaha MG10XU

    What do you have in terms of hardware in the second PC? You won't be encoding that high of FPS without GPU encoding.
  13. Polaris owners (display port issues)

    Like @Stefan Payne suggested, I would try a different cable, I've gone through several brands with many issues and eventually landed on these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F85RQD2/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1 Never had issues since.
  14. Polaris owners (display port issues)

    My monitor does freesync via HDMI, but that's besides the point. Only have one monitor connected?
  15. HDPLEX 400W External Power Brick

    HDPLEX's 400W AC/DC would give you enough power too: https://www.hdplex.com/hdplex-internal-400w-ac-dc-adapter-with-active-pfc-and-19vdc-output.html You could mount it to the desk outside of the case or use it as if it were a standard brick like the dell, more than enough power. This will work fine for a 7700: https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-Low-Profile-Cooler-Retail-Cooling/dp/B009VCAJ7W/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1533597091&sr=8-14&keywords=low+profile+cpu+cooler
