    Gaming PC for Friend

    If there is a difference, certainly not worth £20.

    Gaming PC for Friend

    I think the 880K is 99% the same as the 860K, except with a slightly higher base clock. Seeing as I'll be overclocking, this isn't an issue anyway.

    Alright, I'll go for an S12II. Finding one with free/cheap delivery is a pain in the ass, though.

    Gaming PC for Friend

    My mate will be upgrading his PC soon with some help from me in the form of some free parts I had lying around and helping him actually build it. Here is the build in question: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/QTZkvK Before you guys flip your shit about the memory, I will be swapping it with an 8GB kit of G.Skill RAM I have in my ITX build. He'll have 2x 4GB sticks in dual-channel, I'll have a single 8GB stick for expansion capabilities. That's my reasoning behind it. That motherboard was chosen for overclocking. Thoughts?

    budget gaming cards

    I would wait, not for the GTX 1070 as that's at a higher price point than the cards you specified, but for AMD's new Polaris cards that are coming out. They're supposed to be R9 380(X) price at R9 390(X) performance, but MUCH better power consumption. They're supposed to be announced at Computex on 1st June I believe, so not long now anyway.

    Best Budget 1440p monitor

    I have a BenQ GW2765HT, which is a 1440p 60Hz IPS monitor. I like it, been doing pretty well with it so far. Performed well with a GTX 970, but a 980Ti/TitanX is a great match for that resolution.

    Used 980 or Gtx 1070?

    According to Nvidia themselves. Wait for benchmarks before saying for certain. I believe embargo for GTX 1080 reviews is the 17th May, so we'll have a good idea at that point.

    Will you be geting 1000 series gpu

    I'm waiting to see how the new cards perform against the GTX 980 Ti/Titan X. If they perform better, then I'll probably sell my Titan X and get myself one of the new ones, although I am leaning towards AMD.

    Stock vs Aftermarket

    Whilst that may be true, they don't have the same global reach as Cooler Master. The 212 EVO is available pretty much everywhere. When it comes to a chip that can't be overclocked, pretty much anything is better than a stock cooler. Hell, a Cooler Master TX3 EVO would do the job, and that is so damn cheap.
  10. If all you're playing is League and other such undemanding titles, you could get away with a really budget build. i3-6100, H110 (possibly mATX) motherboard, R7 360/370 or GTX 750 Ti, and you've got yourself a winner.

    AKG K550 MkII vs. Sennheiser HD25

    So after finding out that my Sennheiser Urbanites had a broken pin only a couple of days after opening it, I have decided to return them (I got it as a gift). As such, I will be purchasing some different headphones. I have mainly been looking at getting a pair of AKG K550 MkII headphones, which appear to be highly reviewed and look very comfortable. I'll be pairing this with a ModMic and I'm good to go. However, my friend has suggested I should go for the Sennheiser HD25. They're smaller and doen't look as comfortable, plus, I'm still a little sore with Sennheiser about the poor design of the Urbanite. The two pairs are about the same price. Can someone shed some insight on this matter? I'm also open to suggestions of other headphones, just nothing crazy in terms of price. Let's set a cap of £120.

    Dualshock 4 compatible with HTC Vive?

    Yeah, you should be good. If not, you can pick up an Xbox 360 wired pad for fairly cheap.

    Dualshock 4 compatible with HTC Vive?

    If the games don't support DInput (something every game should support these days) which is the input method of the Dualshock 4, you can use something like DS4Windows to get Windows to treat it as an XInput device.
  14. Testing on the 650 G2 was with old testing methodology, meaning that whilst it is likely, the poor AC_LOSS to PWR_OK is speculation. Unless I'm wrong, then someone please correct me.
  15. Will we start seeing re-testing of previously reviewed PSUs? I have an EVGA 650 G2 and would like confirmation that my PSU has this issue, and whether or not to invest in a UPS.
