  1. The 5700 seems to be the best price : performance no? Is power draw more important with this small a chassis?
  2. Hi everyone, looking to put together a compact Ryzen 5 3600 build for gaming, HTPC and some 4k video editing purposes. Gaming-wise, it'd be nice to reach around 100ish fps at 1080p at high in recent games. Would the RX 5700 manage this? I've no clue how demanding the latest games are as I haven't been gaming on PC for a while. I'm from Australia pricing wise. Max 2 monitors, 1080p for gaming. Looking for a decent colour accuracy IPS monitor 24" freesync and high refresh rate also. Here's what I've got so far: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($279.00 @ Centre Com) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L12S 55.44 CFM CPU Cooler ($83.35 @ Amazon Australia) Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 I AORUS PRO WIFI Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard ($190.00 @ Skycomp Technology) Memory: Patriot Viper Steel 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($199.00 @ Amazon Australia) Storage: Silicon Power 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($210.00 @ Umart) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 8 GB PULSE Video Card ($579.00 @ Shopping Express) Case: Silverstone RVZ01B Mini ITX Desktop Case ($104.00 @ Umart) Power Supply: Corsair SF 450 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular SFX Power Supply ($129.00 @ Umart) Total: $1773.35 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-02-10 03:28 AEDT+1100 Any advice welcome, thanks! P.S. would this be VR ready at decent quality? Depending on how Half life Alyx turns out that might be another purchase.
  3. Gday, Moving to a rural town for University for this year so I've decided to build a little home server to access my files and media that'll live under the stairs at home while I'm away. Primary uses will be hosting backups, running Plex, Sonnar, Radarr etc. and +/- VMs? If I can find a use for them. Currently deciding between building my own Ryzen based tower (listed below) vs. the Synology DS918+ PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor ($211.00 @ Amazon Australia) Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-AX370M-Gaming 3 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($99.00 @ Umart) Memory: Patriot - Viper Elite 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4-2800 Memory ($89.78 @ Amazon Australia) Storage: Western Digital - Green 120 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($33.00 @ Centre Com) Storage: Seagate - IronWolf 8 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($334.00 @ Amazon Australia) Case: Silverstone - PS09B MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($45.00 @ Umart) Power Supply: SeaSonic - 450 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($59.00 @ PLE Computers) Total: $870.78 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-01-19 02:41 AEDT+1100 The DS918+ is around 660ish here in Australia so with the drive comes to about $100 more than building my own. Key concerns for my server will be transcoding performance and power consumption. I am planning on adding more drives down the line for redundancy and RAID, unsure of which RAID type though. Alternatively, I could also just re purpose my current gaming rig (4770K, GTX970, 16gb ram) into a makeshift server as I will be leaving it at home (by just adding the NAS drives, maybe dual booting Linux?), however I am concerned about the power consumption with it running 24/7. Very new to all of this server stuff so would love any and all advice. Thanks!
  4. Never used a projector before but this looks awesome!
  5. I would replace my current CPU and motherboard with an X99 setup and donate my current hardware to a friend who has been held back by his core 2 era cpu for too long in many games we play together.
  6. My favourite item is the fan because it looks nice
  7. I recently got a build together with the MSI mpower max ac and I'm using a modmic with it however the mic volume is awfully low and if I turn the boost up, the noise is unbearable. The realtek noise suppression makes the voice unnatural so that's not preferable. Anyone have a fix for this problem or maybe a cheap mic amp that I could get? Thanks!
  8. My favourite thing about this phone is the Android software and experience. After years of ios, this would be a refreshing difference.
  9. Very cutscene heavy but good combat
  10. No cable where I live and NBN fibre is 3+ years away for my area :( Dat upload speed :P
  11. +1 for Deathadder 2013. Good sensor and features. Synapse sucks though.
  12. +1 for Deathadder 2013, love the liftoff distance changer and accuracy of the sensor. Beware of the drivers though, they are a pain to deal with but found offline mode to fix most problems.
  13. I recently got a Ducky 9008G2pro with MX Browns and I'm loving it so far. It has PBT keycaps and dye sublimation printing.
  14. I prefer the Deathadder 2013, it has an extremely accurate sensor with no acceleration or angle snapping and a liftoff distance tuner. I believe the G500 has some angle snapping but I may be wrong. Just a note for the Deathadder though, the surface finish is scratched rather easily.
