  1. That's unfortunately the issue of my own condenser microphone and many others. You either have it normally on a stand in front of your keyboard, or on a boom arm that's in front of your mouth (in your peripheral vision) as your gaming if you want that great quality, as they get their best full quality at a very short, 12 inch or less range. Preferably less but I can say both are annoying to me, but if you want great quality, you have to sacrifice other things I guess. If you don't want great quality or perfect quality I should say, get a boom arm and place it near your monitor or like, above it? I know YouTubers like LevelCap place it near their monitor when they are gaming and they just talk loudly.
  2. Background noise is pretty hard to avoid, and especially since your microphone is far away, you can't really just put it near your mouth and lower the audio volume (I do this if I have a air conditioner on) ..but as for audio, search up how to use Adobe Audition or programs like those to remove background noise live while you speak. But, condenser microphones = they love to pick anything up in terms of audio. As for the pop filter and boom arm, Boom arm (They clip to the desk) $42.99 for this one. $13.20 for this one (on sale) As for pop filters, fairly cheap and easy to find... Just take a little search The air conditioner shouldn't be a huge issue or as noticeable if you either move the mic close to your mouth and adjust some settings (or even Adobe audition) or....a new mic might help...headsets are cool too...
  3. I knew about the SSD, but thanks about the information. I might leave Windows to defrag every few months or something, thanks mate.
  4. Mainly, I believe most of the fragmentation I ever have might be do to recording footage with Shadowplay? Eh, well seems defragmenting isn't worth the time.
  5. Oh, I know that ...maybe should have mentioned it Ah, well maybe it's not worth it after all? Just was wondering since the effects of "defragmenting" never last long.
  6. Totally agreed with Minzo. I've only heard great about it from YouTubers and just people I meet online.
  7. As you read the title mates, should I defragment? Now, I've used O&O Defrag, Diskeeper, and the default Windows one before. But, one thing I found is my preformance on my WD Black, has been around 160mb/s, and I haven't defrag'd since I got it (around 4/5 months ago) Obviously, when I used to defrag on my other hard drives, I'd get faster speeds but they would reduce after a day or two, and the benefit was just gone. So the main question is... Do you recommend defragmenting? If so, how often and with with program. I Run Windows 8.1, I have a 120GB SSD (boot), 1TB Western Digital Black for Games/Software, 1TB extra drive just for recording game footage with Shadowplay.
  8. I have a few friends who own Cyber Ghost and they paid for it in the past, and they always said it was reliable for them, easy to use, but they always preferred Hotspot Shield or other providers and that they said the membership wasn't worth it.. I've had the free version and it always seemed pretty good, but I heard it's limited bandwidth able to be used, even if you are paying monthly/annually?
  9. YouTube only bugs you if you monetize the video? Not to sure on this though. But there is.. Vimeo. Dailymotion. Somevid. Sendvid.
  10. Flash drives wouldn't be bad? What about just get a really cheap external Hard Drive, since it'll have more space & such other benefits. Also, many prices and sizes. From cheaper to a bit better and so on.
  11. I don't fanboy either companies you could say, but I'd go for the i7. The threads help, it's a great processor overall.. Good luck on the choice though, but lots of my friends who had FX 8350s switched over to i5s and i7s.
