  1. Thanks. I’ll look into builds with that platform.
  2. my Current build i5 4590 8GB 1600 DDR3 Memory GTX 980ti Hyper Cooler 212 CPU cooler XFX XTR 550w Fully Modular Gold+PSU I don’t game as much as I use too, as now I have gotten into doing more video encoding and GPU based upscaling. I was wondering is it worth me getting an i7 4790k for. $160 or should I just look into building a whole new system. If the latter choice what options would you suggest for a build that works for my needs. Thanks for reading everyone.
  3. That's what I said. I have had no problems with my 280x, but cmon for that price who wouldn't upgrade.
  4. Okay. Cool, I don't plan on overclocking anything honestly.
  5. Hi there everyone. A buddy of mine is upgrading to a 1080ti and he is gonna sell me his 980ti. The question I need to ask is I currently have a XFX XTR 550w PSU in my i5 4590, R9 280x system. I was wondering will my PSU be sufficient enough for the 980ti, or do I have to upgrade to a higher wattage psu? Thanks for reading. Hope to hear from you.
  6. an Xbox One and a iPad Air. I'll definitely look into that
  7. Would a Pentium G3220 do? My buddy said he would let me just have the cpu seeing as he is upgrading to a kaby lake build
  8. Thanks. I appreciate it. Also what hard drive do you suggest for storage. I already own a ssd for the OS, but would also like to have a rather large HDD for files on top of my external Hard drive.
  9. Thanks. So a last gen i3 will do the trick then? I forgot to mention I do own a Micro ATX LGA 1150 Mobo
  10. I guess I would need to transcode some of my shows as my formats are in between AVI, MP4 or MKV
  11. Hi everyone. Me and my sister are looking into building a Plex Server PC for our home. I'm trying to keep the budget as low as possible as well. I don't need a fancy looking HTPC case nor do I need a GPU seeing as I don't plan on gaming. I'll most likely have 2 streams going at once tops. Also I own a copy of windows 10 and I don't have any of my external drives on my network as I plan on keeping everything local. I already own a 64GB SSD for the OS and have 4GB of DDR3 ram on hand. I'm open to any AMD or Intel build as well. Hope to hear from you guys.
  12. Also. it's not a definite thing that I'll have GTA 5 I just choose it because GTA is more demanding, and I rather have the power for it just in case
  13. yeah. I see that. I also use Amazon and Newegg myself
