    For a new monitor need a little help

    It probably won't be noticeable until you get something close to 120hz.
  2. WIth my Gigabyte 970 I've had to lessen the memory usage with GTA V, but having the extra fast 500MB of vram on the 980 could be put to better use in 1440p gaming.

    Can the NZXT Hue do white?

    You're welcome! Have fun with the NZXT Hue controller!

    Can the NZXT Hue do white?

    Here you go!
  5. What everyone else is saying! I have the white series of the HyperX 16GB and love it, but the Corsair model would most likely perform the same.

    Can the NZXT Hue do white?

    Yes! I have it and it does a great bright white color or dim.

    [STEAM] 3DMark - $5 | 80% OFF (Flash sale)

    Thank you for posting this! I bought it right away!

    Purchased a inexpensive gtx 980 on Craigslist

    Which do you prefer? Money left over or better gaming? Two 970's kickbutt, although two 980's all the more if you have extra money.

    Is this PSU good or is there better?

    The ASUS Z97-A with USB 3.1 is only $148 if you're interested in getting the latest USB port speeds

    My new build edited!

    Yeah, after I posted I saw that he said he had another stick which is great! Personally, $148 is not expensive to me, the Sabertooth is. It was only a suggestion after all.

    Dual RAM kits are generally better. Also the ASUS Z97-A with USB 3.1 ports is a great motherboard if you can afford it at $148 right now!

    Buying Used Peripherals

    While it's none of my peripheral.. (pun intended) if it's a good quality project (ex. Corsair, Logitech, and more) I probably would go for it. Especially if it was a good amount cheaper than brand-new.

    Is DDR4 memory a thing for laptops?

    Yes it is! But you'll need to make sure it's compatible in case you were interested in purchasing some http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/memory-ddr4-info

    New Build Questions

    Sorry, I had already talked about some parts in previous threads so I didn't mention other components. I will be using this for gaming, but I am a multitasker as well and can afford to get the i7 so I went with that CPU. With the GPU, I plan on going SLI with the 970's, but right now I will not need it. (Thus the amount of PSU watts chosen) I figured two SSD's should be fine for now, but I will definitely get a bigger drive when I need more than 490GB of storage. Only the SSD's and WiFi Adapter have been purchased. My main questions I am looking for answers again are: but I'm wondering how many cable combs you would recommend? What is the best thermal compound? What is the best fan placements in the 450D?
