  1. Yes it was the keyboard on MS tech's channel
  2. So incase you don't know about this keyboard which I doubt you do, it's a $35ish mechanical keyboard. The reason I want this is because my current membrane keyboard has broken and I want to buy a new keyboard but I don't want to spend too much simply because I don't have the funds to splurge. Anyways, this seems like an extremely good deal for a mechanical keyboard that has a metal back plate in it. So I'll be looking to purchase this soon unless there are better options at a similar price point with better features or if someone finds a major flaw with this keyboard.
  3. So I have come up with a build to do gaming in 1440p in games such as The Witcher 1, 2, and of course 3, along with GTA San Andreas, Liberty City and 5. I'll also be playing CS:GO and Battlefield One once it comes out. With this computer I will also be doing web design, graphics design, and programming in general. Also, I will be video editing short movies. I don't need a keyboard because I already have one but in august I would like to upgrade to a mechanical keyboard with cherry mx brown switches so if you could recommend me one that doesn't have to fit in the budget that would be great. This is what I have come up with so far https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Mullen_S/saved/#view=93qxFT PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/QTwzyf Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/QTwzyf/by_merchant/ CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($233.99 @ SuperBiiz) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($24.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Pro4S ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($109.88 @ OutletPC) Memory: A-Data XPG Z1 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($55.99 @ Newegg) Storage: OCZ Trion 100 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($61.62 @ Amazon) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($47.49 @ OutletPC) Case: Phanteks ECLIPSE P400 ATX Mid Tower Case ($54.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($74.99 @ Amazon) Monitor: Asus VX24AH 24.0" 60Hz Monitor ($277.96 @ B&H) Mouse: Logitech G402 Wired Optical Mouse ($44.76 @ Amazon) Headphones: Kingston HyperX Cloud II 7.1 Channel Headset ($84.99 @ NCIX US) Other: Nvidia GTX 1070 ($379.00) Other: Windows 10 ($35.00) Total: $1485.55 Thanks!
  4. Yeah it's not as if if you have a designer t-shirt that is brand new and unopened that is worth a few hundred dollars they're going to make you pay taxes on it.
  5. I have looked into it and they are not on the TSA's prohibited items list and I think while they're going through the X-ray I'll just take them out of the bag and in separate trays in they're original packaging. I have also read that generally when going through security they will just check to see if it is explosives.
  6. In the parts to buy in Ireland there should be a hyper 212 evo. Is there not? @Pcinacan
  7. The reason that this build is much more complicated than regular builds is because I live in Ireland where prices are very expensive and there are no retailers that specifically tailor to Ireland, despite this fact you can still buy goods from many places in the UK and Germany, you just have to pay higher shipping costs and if they only ship to Northern Ireland you can use Parcel Motel to deliver them from Northern Ireland to the Republic for 4.50 euro. Also, I will be in California from June 29th to July 21st on vacation and I can buy parts there because I will be staying in the same house for the whole time. Due to this I have decided that I will buy small parts that can fit in suitcases such as CPUs, GPUs, and RAM in America because it is much much cheaper but I will buy larger parts such as the monitor and case in Ireland from places that deliver to Ireland. Anyways, this build will be used for gaming in games such as the Witcher 3, GTA V, plenty of CS:GO but will also be used for web design, graphic design, and programming aswell as editing short movies. I already have a keyboard that I can use but in the next few months I would prefer to upgrade to a mechanical keyboard with cherry MX brown switches so if you could recommend me one but isn't included in the budget that would be great. Without further ado here are the two parts list that I have come up with; For this switch country to US: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Mullen_S/saved/#view=N6gRsY For this switch country to UK: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Mullen_S/saved/#view=4pL6Mp Sorry for the long post but I think it was necessary, anyways please give some opinions and thanks for your time
  8. I think he'd need a mic for csgo
  9. So I'm building this PC for a friend as his first gaming PC. Included in this budget has to be two monitors, preferably both 1440p but if necessary only one can be 1440p and the other 1080p. Along with peripherals and everything else. He plays all games such as GTA V, CS:GO and he is very excited for Battlefield 1. The case should be the Phanteks Eclipse P400 in grey but if that's not possible that's fine to. We live in Ireland so all the parts have to be ordered from Amazon UK but if you can use the 1800 euro in another store that delivers to Ireland that's great. A headset, mouse and mechanical keyboard is wanted. So that's basically it.
  10. So I have £940 to spend on a pc for the 1070 and i need a mouse keyboard and monitor included.
  11. So the title says it all, I'm looking to learn some programming for web development and I'm not 100% sure on what to learn. I was thinking of learning HTML, CSS, Java, c#, ruby, and maybe ruby on rails but I'm not sure on any of them. Also, I would like to know what the best way to learn is because I was thinking of just learning on codecademy but I have seen people say on this forum that it's not the best way to learn.
  12. So the title says it all. Basically I know the basics of HTML and I would like to choose one of the paths in Codecademy to get back to coding because I usually do better in a structured environment or else I get distracted and just start procrastinating. I was thinking of either doing the full stack path or the front end path but I'm really not sure. Any suggestions? Edit: Most people are assuming I know HTML perfectly, that's not the case. When I say 'a bit', I mean that I got around 40% into the Codecademy course around a year ago before stopping
  13. Ok, just ask him why he wants one because an optical drive is rarely used anymore and it could save money in the budget. If he doesn't know a lot about computers he may think it's still necessary for games so it's best just to ask him
  14. Do you really need an optical drive?
  15. The Buying Situation So, I live in Ireland but I often travel to California for work and I just recently lived there. I will be traveling to California on Feb 13th for work and can buy parts that are much cheaper in America there that are small enough to fit in a suitcase such as RAM and other things but I will be forced to buy the case and monitor from amazon.co.uk because I will not be able to fit either of these items in a suitcase. The Parts List My budget is $1750 after tax or £1230 and I would like to game at high-ultra settings at 1440p at >45 fps on AAA titles such as GTA V, The Witcher 3, Just Cause 3, The Division (when it releases) etc. I don't want to upgrade this PC any time soon but I will probably update it in 2 years time with a budget of around $1000 so I want it to last until then which is why I went with the 980ti over something that can run 1440p well such as a R9 390 I also play plenty of CS:GO which is why I bought a monitor with a 1ms response time instead of IPS. This is the parts list I came up with PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TKZGK8 Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TKZGK8/by_merchant/ CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($174.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock H97M Anniversary Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($67.89 @ OutletPC) Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg) Storage: OCZ Trion 100 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($39.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.99 @ Directron) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB WINDFORCE 3X Video Card ($629.99 @ Amazon) Case: Corsair Carbide Series 88R MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($48.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Amazon) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit) ($35.00) Monitor: AOC Q2778VQE 60Hz 27.0" Monitor ($299.99 @ Micro Center) Mouse: Logitech G402 Wired Optical Mouse ($44.99 @ Amazon) Headphones: Kingston HyperX Cloud Headset ($77.99 @ Amazon) Total: $1584.69 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-01-31 10:37 EST-0500 so tell me what you think. I chose the i5-4460 over the i5-4690k because it has almost the exact same performance in gaming at a much cheaper price and I can get the OS from /r/microsoftsoftwareswap. I also already have a membrane keyboard that I use with my iMac that I will use for the time being until I upgrade to a keyboard such as the Logitech G710+. Where to buy After coming up with the parts list I wrote down all the prices for the products in America plus 8.75% sales tax and all the prices for the products in Ireland with the prices converted from pounds to USD and I came up with this. Prices: America vs Ireland In America i5 4460 USD=190.19 In Ireland i5 4460 Doesn't deliver to Ireland i5 4460: Get in America In America H97M Anniversary USD=73.83 In Ireland: H97m Anniversary USD=106.85 H97M Anniversary: Get in America In America: 8gb DDR3 Ram USD=38.05 In Ireland: 8gb DDR3 RAM USD=48.79 8gb RAM: Get in America In America: 120gb SSD USD=54.24 In Ireland: 120gb SSD USD=54.89 120gb SSD: Don’t get in America In America: 1tb HHD USD=53.157 In Ireland: 1tb HHD USD=55.92 1tb HHD: Don’t get in America In America: GTX 980ti=685.11 In Ireland: GTX 980ti=717.50 GTX980ti: Get in America In America: EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W USD=81.44 In Ireland: EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W USD=112.99 PSU: Get in America In America: Logitech G402=48.93 In Ireland: Logitech G402=55.81 Logitech G402: Get in Ireland Kingston HyperX Cloud: Get in Ireland In America: 84.81 In Ireland: 78.91 Windows=35 And so I have come up with these 2 parts lists i5 980ti: Parts bought in America PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/R4njt6 Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/R4njt6/by_merchant/ CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($174.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock H97M Anniversary Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($67.89 @ OutletPC) Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB WINDFORCE 3X Video Card ($629.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Amazon) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit) ($35.00) Total: $1022.75 i5 980ti: Parts bought in Ireland PCPartPicker part list: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/FGcN3C Price breakdown by merchant: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/FGcN3C/by_merchant/ Storage: OCZ Trion 100 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£38.25 @ Amazon UK) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£38.97 @ Amazon UK) Case: Corsair Carbide Series 88R MicroATX Mid Tower Case (£37.99 @ Amazon UK) Monitor: AOC Q2778VQE 60Hz 27.0" Monitor (£229.93 @ Amazon UK) Mouse: Logitech G402 Wired Optical Mouse (£37.35 @ Amazon UK) Headphones: Kingston HyperX Cloud Headset Total: £382.49 The total price comes to $1732 after tax and I am very close to hitting that order button. I chose which parts to get in Ireland mainly based on the price and size with monitors and case so the items that cost only a few extra dollars in Ireland I decided to put them in the Ireland build. The Verdict Although I think this build is pretty much perfect, if you have any other suggestions please let me know because all opinions are welcome :) Also, if there are any ways to decrease cost or get better performance or have better peripherals I am all ears so fire away :) sorry for the extremely long post but I really wanted someone else's opinion on this way to have the best price/performance for months. TL;DR I live in Ireland and am going to California soon so I need to find out what are the best parts I can get.
