  1. I'm deciding on a PC for a friend who does coding and modding for Xbox and PS3. Is Console Coding/Modding GPU bound because he's on tight budget so I need to decide on getting a good CPU but crappy GPU/iGPU or a mid-tier CPU and okay GPU
  2. My PC won't enable me to hear audio and speak through the microphone at the same time when plugged into the audio port and I don't know how to fix

    Can't get microphone to work via audio port

    My Realtek HD audio manager prompts to tell me what device was plugged in, if I pick headphones, I can hear audio perfectly fine but microphone doesn't register on my PC what so ever

    ITX build
  5. Yeah I worded that badly, naturally CPU/GPUs with higher TDP naturally consume more power as they are hotter but you can't necessarily judge the power consumption from the TDP eg. 390 only consumes 60W more than 970 under load
  6. You're making the general confusion. TDP has zero correlation with wattage or power consumption, it's rather a measure of cooling and how much heat it can output. But low TDP would still be nice for a 24/7 machine

    custom case

    If you can't afford a real case don't bother making your own unless you know what you're doing. Just setup an open bench

    NZXT Phantom 530 Fan setup help needed.

    Just get 5 140mm and your done, place two at front, one at back and two up top

    CPU vs GPU for gaming

    GPU would always generally have bigger impact on gaming and since i5 is little far off the i7 in gaming besides HT, the i5/970 would be better

    More pixels less CPU dependant more GPU dependant, i3 wouldn't bottleneck a top end GPU at 4K

    Won't bottleneck anything unless it's 3 980Ti, 1440p is less CPU dependant

    New build

    It's perfectly fine
  14. less multitasking, can't open as many programs at once, some games utilize more cores where a i3 may lack and less offload on the CPU usage, less Intel features this is generally speaking though, some specific CPU tasks that isn't general usage benefit a lot more from using an i5 such as rendering or editing

    Cheapest place to buy PC parts in the uk?

    Tried buying something from it? Overcharge on tax and shipping

    a good psu for SLI gtx 970

    I would upgrade since you don't really have a good quality PSU atm but there's not exactly any harm in going overkill on wattage

    a good psu for SLI gtx 970

    Even 650W would be adequate so I would go for 750W

    a good psu for SLI gtx 970

    Good PSU, quite overkill on wattage tbf

    First Build - Still some time to go

    What is this build for? Honestly doesn't even look like it's worth having tbh
  20. OAcesync

    are all stock cpu coolers the same

    I wouldn't get OEMs and the stock cooler might work

    Possible Graphics Card Upgrade

    MSI Afterburner?
  22. OAcesync

    Windows 7 vs Windows 10 - fps in games

    Not any fps difference worth the upgrade. DX12 still isn't a factor yet so I wouldn't worry
