  1. Yeah your computer is better than mine so you should be good to go. Have fun with your quarantine! I know I'm enjoying mine lol. Plenty of time to work on projects
  2. Obviously everyone is gonna have their own preferences (despite all the praise Im about to lay down, Wind Waker is still my favorite!) but just to set the record straight, BotW is an absolute masterpiece of a videogame. The visuals and how they connect to the art style as a whole are absolutely fantastic. The music and especially sound design are literally as good as it gets. Nintendo's sound design game is often way ahead of any other company and and BotW is a great example of this. The best part of the game is the open world aspect and freedom of gameplay. They spent years perfecting everything they could and delayed the game several times to make sure they achieve their expected level of quality. BotW firmly belongs on any "must play" list for the Switch. My only main complaint is that there are times when you will get under 30 FPS. It's not a super annoying problem for the most part, but it can break the immersion at times. I actually think the best way to play it is to emulate it on the Cemu emulator if you have a strong enough computer. It's nice to play on the switch for convenience and authenticity, but honestly nothing beats a smooth 144 FPS at 1440p or higher with custom graphics packs to enhance the colors of the game if you wish. There's a channel called BsoD_Gaming that has comprehensive setup guides for all major releases of the emulator. Definitely need a strong computer for the full experience though.
  3. My entry in the Brackeys Game Jam

  4. I see. In that case, would this be a good alternative? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jcYQzy EDIT: nvm I saw the post you made literally seconds before I posted this reply lol. Thanks for the advice!
  5. For the most part what bothers me is that X570 boards are so expensive. He's not interested in any fancy features such as overclocking performance but according to pcpartpicker all the cheaper chipsets aren't compatible without having to mess with updating the bios PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $322.99 @ SuperBiiz Motherboard MSI X570-A PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard $156.00 @ Amazon Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $79.98 @ Amazon Storage Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $87.99 @ Amazon Storage Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $44.99 @ Adorama Video Card EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB XC GAMING Video Card $489.99 @ Newegg Case Phanteks P300 ATX Mid Tower Case $49.99 @ Newegg Power Supply Cooler Master MWE Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $89.99 @ B&H Monitor LG 27GL83A-B 27.0" 2560x1440 144 Hz Monitor $379.99 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $1731.91 Mail-in rebates -$30.00 Total $1701.91 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-01-10 01:25 EST-0500 Thanks in advance
  6. your motherboard should have come with a jumper plug. What you would normally do is turn the computer OFF then apply the plug to the correct position, then turn the computer on for a moment then back off again and remove the plug. I suppose you COULD use a screwdriver and I've seen it done before but that's ghetto af EDIT: conflicting info from the post above me on whether or not the power should be off. Im pretty sure my method is correct but I could be wrong lol

    Windows 10

    no, Im not going to do your homework for you lol
  8. Just make sure they don't going above 90 or 95. Your temps are completely normal. 80 might be a bit high for a cpu if you ever see that temp, but it's still fine if it gets that hot

    NAS or Not

    To add onto the comment above, make sure you are discerning the difference between a network switch and a network hub if you decide to look into that. Hubs might seem like another word for the same thing, but in reality they can only support one signal at a time which could mean slowdowns if your NAS is uploading/downloading while you are trying to use the internet. Just something to keep in mind
  10. I helped build a PC (special thanks to everyone on this thread, you all played a role) that has a few RGB components including the RAM, GPU, and Logitech mouse and keyboard. The problem is that they each have their own RGB control systems and we have to have them all running for the colors to work. This is far from ideal. Is there any way we can set everything up on a much more streamlined system? Components below: T-Force Nighthawk RAM EVGA 2070 Logitech mouse and keyboard POSSIBLY Corsair fans, which would mean a hub for those parts.
  11. Cooler Master V650 semi-modular. According to the tier list it's pretty decent
  12. Ah, forgot about Zen 2. Should have also mentioned that he doesn't want to mess with overclocking. With that being said, would you still recommend going with the non X variant?
  13. As the title states, he wants to keep the price range as close to $1000 as possible. One thing to keep in mind is that I already have a power supply, so that part won't be needed in the list. Only thing I might be particularly concerned about is the cpu and graphics card combo, but according to a benchmark I found they should be able to stay above 60 fps at 1440p.

  14. Lol this post really looks like it was made by a bot
  15. Have you used any remote desktop software recently such as TeamViewer? While technically not impossible, I find it pretty much entirely unreasonable that someone from the internet has hacked into your computer and given themselves access just to mess with you like that. 100% chance this is just your friends trolling you or something. But that's just my opinion
  16. well first I would make sure your siblings/friends weren't trolling you with a remote desktop or just an extra bluetooth keyboard
  17. Usually if you have modern or somewhat modern hardware you can google how the game will perform on your processor and video card.
  18. TBH I also hate how modern smart phones aren't always 16:9. That aspect ratio is a standard for a reason. Even if there is a reason for 18:9 to be a thing, it feels kind of like Apple removing the headphone jack for the sake of "moving forward" when the rest of the world still revolves around its use (but of course, not near as bad). I've gotten used to it though.
  19. FFS that ain't no Subspace Emissary

  20. I have the Hyperx Cloud II and I'm considering buying a more high quality microphone than the one that comes with the headset. The only problem is that I can't seem to find any that are designed to plug directly into the headset itself. I'm not looking for a mic that sits on my desk or one that attaches externally (like the ModMic for example) I would rather be able to just plug it into the existing mic slot on the headset. Does anyone have any recommendations or keywords I can use for better search results? Thanks
