  1. What do you see the benefits of a new product line be? Im not sure I follow.
  2. Thank you everyone for your speedy response. From the list provided I have adjusted a bit. Now I was quite torn with the "Ryzen 5 2600 to the 1600". Not sure which one can deliver. Do let me know if this is adequate. Many thanks.

  3. INTRO _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Hello there keyboard monsters, Its finally time for me to move on from my 2017 4k iMac to a new PC. It has been good to me for the past few years and I will use it as a side PC. I know Apple Yuck but that was my situation at the time, and now as things have moved on from the last time I was here I now turn to you guys for expertise in this field, as the last time I have done a build was in 2003. Im out of touch to say the least. PLAN This is just a simple gaming computer, With the possibility of VR expansion in the future maybe. I am on the fence about VR I would like it if it can be squeezed in the budget but thats a secondary option. PRIORITY In this order Price / Budget Performance (Should be able to run 2 monitors no problem) Medium form-factor, not too big or small maybe Micro ATX? VR Graphics card if possible. RESTRICTIONS 2x HDMI Ports No need for over clocking No Water Cooling BUDGET CAD $800 - $1,200. LOCATION Canada, B.C So prices will be based in CAD.

  4. So i dug a little deeper into the research that was provided. I love that it was projected to be under budget. Below is my revised build mixing the recommended items provided. Now out of curiosity would the ASUS Sabre Tooth Z97 MK1 be any worth the money. As I kinda feel that the motherboard is one of the things I dont want to think about in 2-3 years time. But I am open.
  5. Haha Man that great. Is there any benefit to using a contra-rotating fan? Or are they as @ZetZet stated a air-raid siren.
  6. So I was browsing though youtube and came across a video on a 90mm computer fan that Contra-rotates [Link below].
  7. I still use a NTSC Sony Broadcast Monitor 4:3 and 16:9 capable (Woah!) and a HP w2228h for work. Even though I use HD and some 4K footage. Reference photos below
  8. Interesting that both of all recommended the same mother board. What was the Issue that you saw in the proposed build? I dont want to sound rude in any way, I do wish to understand and learn from your recommendations. I dont plan to OverClock for now which is a statement I forgot to mention. Also was the information I provided useful or just too much?
  9. INTRO _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I would like some critique's, recommendations, and other advice to my 1st build. This is my first build for a computer as I am moving from Apple to Windows/Linux. I do have limited knowledge of computers, their speed, reliability etc. But very limited. I used PC Part Pickcer to help me pick and choose the proposed equipment. Please be honest and direct as possible as I dont want to spend my money and see it to become a "Outmode" in 1 years time. PLAN I plan to use my first build as a base line for Video Editing, Color Grading and Sound Mixing. With the potential road to upgrade down the line. PRIORITY In this order Upgradeability Price / Budget Performance Spot for an SSD for the O.S. Half XB EVO Case Gaming - WarThunder Cosmetics (I dont care about this line here) BUDGET CAD $800 - $1,100. PROGRAMS USED Only listing the heaviest load for the CPU and GPU only. Adobe Creative Suite (Editing sound, audio, color, encoding. HD and possible 4k footage) Avid Media Composer War Thunder (Only game I truly enjoy.) LOCATION Canada, B.CSo prices will be based in CAD.
