  1. I'm putting together a list for my first build, and I was originally going with the 960. But, from what I've read on the forums here the 380 pretty soundly outperforms it. There was also something about the 4GB versions of the 960 not being able to utilize all 4 gigs of vRAM... could someone clarify?

     

    Anyway, my main question is whether there are any additional features the 960 has by virtue of being newer hardware than the 380 (which is apparently made from an older gpu?) that would make it worth considering over the 380. 

     

    p.s. I'm new to the site; is there a place here to have the community look over my build? 

    The 960 has lower TDP, has Nvidia features and has H.265 encoding and decoding


  2. So here is a video that I made of the i5 6400. The summary of this CPU is that it's a good value as it's next to the old 4460 in price, and performs well, not to mention I got this running on my Hyper 612 v2 without a fan. It runs aat 2.7 Ghz and has a boost of 3.2Ghz. It has 4 cores/ 4 threads with 6MB of L3 cachel, 65W TDP and it goes on the LGA 1151 socket.


  3. It's not great. The GS/G2 series from EVGA is much better. 

     

    Wouldnt buy it

    "First we have the EVGA SuperNova NEX650G and NEX750G aka G1

    These are based on the FSP Aurum group regulated units and are pretty mediocre dont touch these they are not only mediocre but overpriced"

    Do you guys know of a decent PSU for about $100 AUD that can handle a  i5 6400 and a r9 380?


  4. Thanks, seems pretty solid

    Here is with PSU

  5.    Hi, my name's Alfie and I'm looking to build a pc. Here's the specs:

     

    1. Budget & Location

    The budget for this build is £1000 GBP. As the currency suggests, I live in the UK.

    2. Aim

    My system will be used for video and photo editing, general productivity like google chrome, word, powerpoint etc. And occasionally I will be gaming playong games like fallout, star wars battlefront and games similar.

    3. Monitors

    At first I plan on running a decent but relatively low cost 1080p panel but in the future I dream of upgrading to an lg ultrawide.

    4. Peripherals

    I won't need an OS however my room does not have access to Ethernet so I will need a WiFi adapter if one is not on the motherboard.

    5. Why are you upgrading?

    I am upgrading because my cheap laptop is not gaming machine nor video editer and I'm sick of having to use the school computers for everything.

     

    Notes:

    - This pc needs to be small so m-itx is the best choice. 

    - Also, I want a nice case with no side panel windows please

    Got a powerful PC here

  6. Is VisionTek a good brand, or no? I was looking around for R9 290's, and this seems to be the only one that has a completely reference cooler (I think reference coolers look much better than aftermarket ones)

     

    Would it be smarter to just go with a Sapphire card over it?

    They are fine


  7. Seems like a good highly featured 'mid tower'. It has all the core requirements, fan filters on the front, top, bottom. Lots of hard drive support (5 drivers), plenty of room for a radiator at the top. Big case with solid build quality with front IO (very rare these days)

     

    Its cheap, but not excessively cheap. Anyone had any experience with it? I don't really like Thermaltake as a company, but they do make some very convincing and well featured cases. Seems excellent for the cash.

    Hardaware canucks has a video on it, saying it's quite good


  8. Tons of people complained about "the low quality" of that video. We got SO MUCH hate about how it wasn't up to our normal standards.

    We decided it was best to stick with our current progression rather than go back to posting "oldschool" unboxings. For now at least [emoji14]

    Ok then. I kinda liked it though

  9.  

    Hi, I am looking to buy a Graphic Card for gaming and video rendering but unsure which to pick. AMD or Nvidia. 
     
    More specifically, either a gtx 970 4gb or a r9 390 8gb

     

    R9 390 does perform better but Nvidia has CUDA which depending on the app, can be useful or not.
