  1. I personally like MSI Afterburner https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner
  2. Nah I'll just recommend the Sennheiser Orpheus to them
  3. Oh yeah, if this is your first build you really can't go wrong with either one IMO so I would say just do Eeny, meeny, miny, moe and buy whichever one you land on
  4. I cannot speak in terms of the DT770 Pro's but I do own and have used a pair of DT990 250 Ohm Pro's for the past couple years and I can tell you that I have listened to a lot of headphones that were in the $200 and less range and these are by FAR the best headphones that I have listened to. Now I don't know your budget but if you can afford it I would get the DT990 250Ohm Pro's with a Objective2 ODAC (that's just what I use, but you can get whatever you think would best fit your needs) and I promise you won't be upset with your purchase. On the flip-side, if you don't really have, or don't want to, spend the money on that, I do know that there is a pair of DT990 Pro's that have low Ohms and could work just straight out of your computer with no compromise.
  5. From what I understand, EVGA cards had an issue a couple months back but they have since fixed them and I have not personally experienced either ASUS, or EVGA support so I can't help you there but in terms of just the card, you really couldn't go wrong with either one because they are both very good cards. On a side note, I would possibly think about holding off on getting the 1080 a couple weeks/months to see what the GTX 1080Ti is going to be like, assuming you have a GPU that is holding you above water currently.
  6. But like. Which cards? Asus Strix spans many different cards and generation, same with the EVGA SC.
  7. I personally use a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 250 Pro's with a Objective2 ODAC and I absolutely love the sound I get from them. The bass is there but not overpowering, the lows, mids, and highs are all pretty crisp and for the price, you would be looking at about the best headphones in that price range (though I haven't looked for headphones in a while so take that with a grain of salt) I bought my Objective2 ODAC from "Mayflower Electronics" and I couldn't be happier with it.
  8. If the screen touch still works but you see no visuals from it, you can look up online and try to find the general area as to where the button would be and see if that works. If that doesn't work, I would either fix the screen yourselves or take it into a shop and have them fix it because broken screens aren't a huge thing these days and they would probably do it for around $50 and it would take a couple hours (depending on their workload)
  9. I do like the list that aSpoink created here but you do have to keep in mind that if you ever want a K series CPU you should also upgrade the motherboard because with that motherboard, you will not be able to overclock CPU's at all. But for a starting build, this is VERY solid and a good list.
  10. So I recently built a server and I bought a small UPS to go with it so that I could turn it off in case of a power outage and it won't be affected by power surges and now I am wanting one for my gaming rig as well. I was thinking about getting the CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series CP1350AVRLCD UPS but I am unsure as to how many watts or Volt-Amps would be enough for my system. So my question is, would that UPS be enough to have my computer, including monitors and peripherals, run while gaming for a minute or two so I can properly shut it down in the event of a power outage? My full system is in my signature or here https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xYF9tJ TL;DR - Need UPS, is the one in the link enough for my system? As always, thank you for all the help
  11. Is this Jerry aka Barnecules? Even if not, hi! =)

      Awww. How are you yourself then?

      Good. Just messing around on here while I configure a server :P

      A server for what exactly?

  12. Well you have to think about it this way. No matter how good your cooler is, the CPU will always put out the same amount of heat, the cooler is just better at displacing that heat, but it will always put out the same amount of heat from the case. But if you want better temps just for the CPU, then yes, a new cooler (assuming you get a good one) will be good for you.
  13. My immediate reaction is to say upgrade your CPU cooler if you really want to upgrade something. I also recommend just saving that money and waiting till you have enough to make a very large improvement like upgrade the CPU. Alternatively, you could also get a UPS for your system to ensure that it will never be affected by power surges, brown outs, black outs, etc.
  14. I would get the GPU first but then start saving for the monitor because as mentioned above, a monitor is nice but if you can't really run it in games, then it's kinda pointless On top of that, monitors (especially 4K monitors) are going down in price almost every day so waiting a bit on that would probably be a cheaper option as well
