  1. Hi there shadow captain, i really respect and appreciate your advice and overall insight into computing specifications.

    I'm no stranger to the gaming community although i am an absolute novice when it comes down to gaming desktops and gaming laptops.

    I'm currently in the process of trying to buy my first gaming laptop for a budge of < £1,200 which i can also use for video editing and design work. The features i am looking for include: good screen quality, a good build chassis , a good cpu/gpu. I have found 2 laptops and i would appreciate it if you could briefly tell me if they are any good for what im looking for and if the price does justice for the specs...

  2. Keyboard no Mouse 10000000000% definately Screen - helps to use a proper monitor
  3. Cheap pellet/bb sniper rifles

    yeah doing hunting would be a safe way of getting your shoot on shooting poor people in the street with a bb gun is completely not
  4. Where can I get a decent bike?

    +1000000000000
  5. Cheap pellet/bb sniper rifles

    bbs guns are not particularly damaging, considering as a sport people shoot each other with them brandishing them in public is illegal, and shooting somebody not in a game is assault and if armed police came would probably shoot you Also, you would harm genuine airsofters being reckless IF you want to shoot people with bbs guns, join an airsoft site and do it safely

  10. MSI Z270 Krait Gaming

    Hey guys, here is a quick review of the MSI Z270 Krait gaming motherboard - apologies for the terrible colour grading and clipped audio! Anything that could have gone wrong with this video, went very wrong indeed - hopefully its still enjoyable and educational!!! TLDR - Great priced motherboard, attractive design, wealth of features, great performance, lots of good IO Video Review Specs - Socket 1151 Intel Kaby Lake 7th Gen CPUs - 4x DDR 4 RAM slots with support for OC 3733mhz - 2x M.2 SSD slots - 6x SATA Ports with RAID (0/1/5/10) support - 3 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (support x16/x0/x4, x8/x8/x4 modes) (2 Way SLI and 3 Way Crosfire supported) - Gigabit Ethernet - Audio Boost 4 Connectivity PS2 Combo port DVI 2x USB 2.0 HDMI 1.4 1 USB 3.1 Gen 2 USB type C 4 x USB 3.1 Gigabit ethernet Mic Jack 7.1 audio Quick rundown of main features - VR Boost - Dedicated super fast USB port to drive demanding VR peripherals - Audio Boost 4 - dedicated sound card with amps to drive high impedance audiophile headphones and speakers, - Steel armour - reinforced PCI-e and RAM slots to prevent damage/sagging when using heavy heatsinks - m.2 SSD - support for two ultra fast NVME SSDs - Mystic Lighting - control all of your RGB lights and peripherals in one piece of software Quick review Honestly, not sure what more I can say about a motherboard, its not the most interesting thing to talk about, but for the money, this board is a fantastic option for most gamers out there. With support for the newest overclockable Intel CPUs, multi gpu support, NVME support, you can get some serious performance without overspending on overpriced boards with features that nobody will use I think the board is really well made, and very attractive with its white and black colour scheme. Definitely needs a nice case with a big side window to show off all the details. With RGB you could easily add in coloured components and change the lighting to suit any colour scheme! Definitely recommended as a mid range board that doesn't skimp on performance or looks
