  1. Considering that most PCs are hooked up to monitors, and movies are watched online, I'm pretty safe to say that you don't need blu ray. Barely anyone actually uses discs nowadays... And it's a gaming grade piece of kit, I've used the keyboard and mouse before and they feel surprisingly premium. I've got a coolermaster devastator kb/mouse combo, it's $20 and has lasted 2 years so far with no issues whatsoever.
  2. Good value console for once? The Xbox 360 is a fantastic value console, especially with the amazing exclusives it has... Halo Reach was my life for a good 4-5 years, I don't think I'll ever have as much fun gaming as when I did with Reach. Personally, I feel as if the One X isn't a good value console. Its performance is heavily exaggerated, Microsoft are marketing the console as a 4K 60FPS gaming system even though literally only 1 game supports it... I'm not being bias at all, I just think that you can get way better value for the money.
  3. From what I can see, the max FPS difference was around 10 with pretty much all the games tested getting over 60FPS on the 3GB 1060... Which is a big difference, especially when we're going to be playing games on a 60Hz monitor... where visual FPS difference above 60 is very minimal.
  4. I 100% agree with this. The majority of people don't even have 4K monitors/TVs... I would've preferred Microsoft to put together a console that smashes out ALL games at 60FPS 1080P with graphics settings comparable to PC @ Ultra. Now THAT would be a console worth considering, especially if it's priced at ~$300, since the majority of people have 1080P monitors/TVs..
  5. Firstly, did you actually read the reviews? "The software compression is awesome and my mom's computer was getting 158Mbps as opposed to my newer laptop could only reliably hold signal at 58Mbps at same time/place. With that caution it a great alternative to having to go to your local computer store for a wifi upgrade or install." "This was pretty good. Shipped on time, but it didn't give me the distance for connection I wanted. My iPod gets better connection from my room than this... It's a great product if you are close to your router/modem!" Of course, for $6 it won't be a fantastic adapter. But it's honestly good enough... And secondly. - http://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/2604-gtx-1060-3gb-vs-6gb-benchmark-review/page-3 See the FPS difference? It's literally 1-2FPS... Games don't use that much VRAM... I play some pretty demanding games on my R9 380 2GB GPU and it does pretty well. That's the best you could come up with? Pitiful.
  6. I don't see a problem with having a slightly larger case, it isn't full ATX, it's a Micro ATX Mini Tower. Keyboard/Mouse is the preferred gaming input for PC, but at least you have controller support without having to pay money for some BS adapter. The WiFi adapter I included is absolutely fine, it supports up to 150mbps transfer speeds, which is more than what 90% of people have. That PSU is absolutely fine for lower end builds, no overclocking will be done. EVGA actually make decent lower end PSUs. The HDD point is correct, but I didn't want to go too far over budget to push people away. And $70 for 3GB more of VRAM isn't worth it for a build of this caliber. I agree as well, but if aesthetics is your thing, you can just switch out the case and ram for a nicer looking case and ram with heatsinks, throw in a few LED fans and you should be good. This won't set you back too much at all. Put together a list, I'm interested to see what you come up with.
  7. Hi there everyone. I've been on YouTube quite a bit lately, and have found so many misguided people who aren't too knowledgeable of the true facts regarding the One X, only believing what Microsoft is marketing. So many people are believing that the One X is a true 4K 60FPS console, where in reality literally only 1 game has been announced to run at 4K 60FPS, and that is Forza 7. In fact, only a handful of games are actually able to run at 4K at all on the new console. - https://www.windowscentral.com/all-xbox-one-x-enhanced-games Also, people are not understanding the fact that despite the 4K resolution 90% of these games will be running at low visual quality, which is fairly easy to achieve at 4K using PC hardware. In fact, it's so easy that I've been able to put together a solid part list for ~$500 that meets the One X's performance. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel - Pentium G4560 3.5GHz Dual-Core Processor ($68.99 @ SuperBiiz) Motherboard: MSI - B250M PRO-VD Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($61.99 @ SuperBiiz) Memory: Kingston - 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory ($55.75 @ Amazon) Storage: Toshiba - 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($39.99 @ Newegg) Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 3GB SC GAMING Video Card ($189.99 @ Newegg) Case: DIYPC - MA08-BK MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($29.98 @ Newegg) Power Supply: EVGA - 400W ATX Power Supply ($29.99 @ Amazon) Wireless Network Adapter: Encore - ENUWI-1XN45 USB 2.0 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter ($5.99 @ Amazon) Keyboard: Thermaltake - Commander Bundle Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Laser Mouse ($27.89 @ OutletPC) Total: $510.56 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-06-18 07:23 EDT-0400 It even includes WiFi and gaming grade peripherals (to match the controller/on-board WiFi) the One X has. Count in the fact that the PC will be superior for productivity, upgradability, aesthetics (if that's your thing), free online multiplayer, a better overall online community and a plethora of decent free/cheaper games, I think that the PC is the winner. The only argument for consoles I would pitch forward would be exclusives. Linus, I reckon it wouldn't be a bad idea at all to put together a video that pitches this forward. Tell me what you guys think, I've honestly got an open mind in this argument, I'm not bias and have both an Xbox One and my own gaming PC. Thanks
  8. Buy an i5 7600K and invest in a better GPU. It will attain better FPS than any Ryzen or i7 alternative. However, if it is strictly between the two, go for the 1700. You can get up to 4GHz overclocks on the stock cooler, and at 3.9GHz it keeps up with a 5GHz 7700K (which requires aftermarket cooling to attain). http://www.toptengamer.com/amd-ryzen-7-1700-vs-intel-i7-7700k-1800x/
  9. Not true at all. http://www.toptengamer.com/amd-ryzen-7-1700-vs-intel-i7-7700k-1800x/ A 3.9GHz 1700 keeps up with a 5GHz 7700K, and you can do this on the stock AMD cooler. You'll need to invest in a decent aftermarket cooler to get the 7700K to attain such speeds. The R7 1700 is a better gaming CPU, but the majority of reviews seem to neglect this.
  10. I'm blue dabadidabadieee

  11. When you're bored >_>

  12. - Here in Australia the 6S is ~$1100 AUD and the 6P is ~$700 AUD. - IOS can use more RAM in more intensive games. Android isn't too RAM munchy either - "Fastest" means fastest in benchmarks. When compared the Android phone is actually a bit smoother and feels more liquid-ey - The fingerprint scanner on the android is outright better. It is way better positioned, more secure and more accurate - Jailbreak a brand new iPhone with 3 years warranty left on it? Yeah, no.
  13. If you're locked in the apple ecosystem there isn't much you can do unfortunately. In this case, a 6S would be fine.
  14. Really depends what android device your running. The Nexus 6P is one of the only phones that run pure android, and is therefore the most secure android phone you can get. I'm fine with him buying an iPhone but they are extremely overpriced. The Nexus 6P is over $400 cheaper than the iPhone 6S and has more RAM, a bigger battery, a better screen, similar performance, a better fingerprint sensor, a more customizable OS and a way bigger screen. Also forgot to mention the way better camera and better voice recognition.

  15. Your first problem is buying an iPhone. iPhones are all overpriced and not worth their money. Spend less and buy yourself what is pretty much the best phone you can currently buy all round, the Google Nexus 6P.
