  1. Found a deal for this motherboard. - ASUS X99-Deluxe/USB3.1 for $239.99, pre-tax. http://www.frys.com/product/8504009?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG My question is that (I was also eyeing the Asus Strix x99 board, MSI x99 Gaming Pro Carbon, and the Asus X99 Deluxe II) is it worth forking over the extra $100-$150 to get a newer generation motherboard, or is the original one I linked fine with no issues (other than updating the bios to support Broadwell-E)? Thanks!
  2. Looking to rebuild to an X99 platform. It was either this or the X99 Asus Strix board. https://www.amazon.com/MSI-X99A-GAMING-PRO-CARBON/dp/B01GIUYPHE/ref=sr_1_1/160-3503911-5412134?ie=UTF8&qid=1473755288&sr=8-1&keywords=x99+pro+carbon CamelCamelCamel
  3. Nah, I don't mess with used/refurb tech. That's just me.
  4. DANG, was lowkey in the market for an iPad. Just my luck.
  5. $100 off is retail? Sure I guess... EDIT: I just went on eBay and it's $229.99 brand new, $179.99 refurbished. This is BRAND new and cheaper than BOTH of those, soooooooooo......
  6. One thing is definitely costs as traditional speakers might need a AMP/Receiver. There are pros and cons though mainly being traditional speakers like bookshelf ones have a better sound stage where as soundbars spread out the sound more evenly. As a broke college student, price is definitely one of my biggest concerns so I can stick with this and when I have an actual job and can afford the nicer things I will look into a full home theater surround setup. Disclaimer: I'm no audio expert, but this is what I vaguely remember reading a while back.
  7. Good stuff. I'm planning to use it with a 50 Inch Vizio 4k TV.
  8. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SMBGGV6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Been waiting for this set to go on sale foreverrrrrrrrrrrrr. Add to your cart to additional $50 off if you are a prime member. If you're not a Prime member it's $199.99 which I still would have bought. Amazon just jooged me though. Here's the camelcamelcamel : http://camelcamelcamel.com/VIZIO-SB3851-C0-Wireless-Subwoofer-Satellite/product/B00SMBGGV6
  9. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Whoops, my bad fam.
  10. Yes, usually the bigger the number, the stronger the graphics cards are. Taken from : http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/best-graphics-performance-july-2016-hierarchy-chart-by-toms-hardware.81325/
  11. I'm a Cloud II owner as well. Nice and comfy and gets the job done. I watched several reviews before on the Void and I vaguely recall them having crap battery life because of the LEDs on them. Roughly 6 hours with LEDs on and 25ish without LEDs on. 6 hours might seems like a long time, but that's not even a day of gaming and you'd have to charge the headset every day, which might be a deal breaker for some (me). Speaking of charging, what really swayed me from the Void was the USB plug on the headset. The port is SOLELY for charging. For the headset to work, you need the dongle so and if whatever reason you wanted to use it with wires, you wouldn't be able to. (This is probably more annoying on wireable wireless mice.) Mic isn't detachable while the Clouds are if you plan on taking them outside the house. Generally speaking for audio, I'd always go with wired just for the quality.
  12. Have fun boys. Wish the white one was this cheap. http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Series-Computer-CC-9011016-WW/dp/B007S02GMA
  13. Actually I'e seen quite a lot of sales for the 5820k brand new for about $320. 6700k's are like $360.
  14. Crazy good deal. Most likely will pick one up tomorrow. http://www.frys.com/product/8363967
  15. OP lives in Aussie. Checked the store that he's buying all the parts from and its based in Australia. Man I feel bad. I live in the states and a 980 Ti here starts at $600.
