  1. I think the price isn't bad for what you're getting. They guy's about 2 hours away so I suppose I have to factor in a 4 hour drive in the price. I'm thinking of maybe offering him EUR 700. Any thoughts? https://www.milanuncios.com/ordenadores-de-segunda-mano/pc-gamer-293561855.htm
  2. I'm thinking of spending about €1,500 - 2,000 on a nice PC with a VR setup. However with the GTX 1080 having come out in May 2016 and the HTC Vive having come out in April 2016, I can't help but feel like I would be investing considerable money on somewhat outdated hardware. I don't know if I should buy now and risk a new generation of GPUs (Volta) and VR headsets (Vive 2) coming out in a month or two. Or if I should hold on and risk waiting 6 - 12months when I could've been having tonnes of fun in the mean time. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  3. Thanks for your replies. I put this together in the mean time: https://es.pcpartpicker.com/list/NscDHN Would the R7 1700 be faster than the i7 7700k?
  4. I haven't been up to speed with the latest releases for a while so I would appreciate some help. I need a desktop for work. I will be doing video editing, photoshop and general productivity stuff. I won't be gaming and I'm not fussed about overclocking. I just need something that will last me a good few years. I have a flexible budget of around €1200 and will be buying from Spain: https://es.pcpartpicker.com/ I'm thinking something along the lines of: i7, 16gb RAM, SSD for OS and HDD for mass storage, discrete GPU to push multiple monitors and maybe help with rendering. Thanks in advance!
  5. Thanks for the reply. I´m pretty sure the filming will stay indoors. I think the Rode NTG2 could be a good choice. I was looking at this stand. The mic needs 48v phantom power though, so do you have any suggestion on what would be the best option to deal with that? I suppose it would be simpler if it could just be standalone with the camera so I don´t need to haul a laptop around.
  6. I´ll be producing some promotional videos with a green screen soon, I have all the equipment needed except for a good audio solution. So I´m thinking a shotgun mic is the way to go. The budget is around 200-300€ and I would prefer to order off of https://www.amazon.es/. I guess the simplest solution would be if I can plug the mic into my camera´s 3.5mm port, however using a laptop is also possible if necessary. Could someone with a bit more experience suggest a mic, stand and whatever other accessory combo I need to make everything work? Thanks!!
  7. Could you link it? I would need 2 of them though since I have 2 cards.
  8. I was hoping that wouldn't be my only option The only stuff I see on ebay are pretty roughed up or are for the Titan X (which I'm not sure is compatible, though it probably is)
  9. Yeah I saw that as an option, but the amazon reviews weren't too convincing and of course I will need something that leaves space for SLI.
  10. I have two GTX Titan Hydrocoppers, however I want to ditch the whole watercooling thing and just make a new air cooled build. I thought since the Titan is still a pretty solid card, I could just switch out the hydrocopper cooler for some kind of air cooler, but I'm having trouble finding one for sale. I don't really care if it's a stock cooler or some 3rd part one as long as it's fully compatible with the GTX Titan (1st version from early 2013). Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Thanks for the suggestion, though I don't think the GPU is needed at all since the PC won't be used for anything other than what I listed above.
  12. Hey, I was hoping to get some feedback on this office build (no gaming whatsoever): PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor (€184.01 @ Amazon Espana) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo 43.1 CFM CPU Cooler (€20.95 @ Amazon Espana) Thermal Compound: Noctua NT-H1 3.5g Thermal Paste (€7.90 @ Amazon Espana) Motherboard: MSI H87M-G43 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (€109.44 @ Amazon Espana) Memory: Patriot Signature 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (€34.99 @ Amazon Espana) Storage: Samsung 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (€56.27 @ Amazon Espana) Case: Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case (€45.47 @ Amazon Espana) Power Supply: EVGA 430W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply (€51.95 @ Amazon Espana) Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link TL-WN881ND 802.11b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter (€14.90 @ Amazon Espana) Total: €525.88 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-04-09 11:07 CEST+0200 What it will be used for: Standard browsing (email, youtube etc.), initially on wifi Some basic audio recording (audacity) Microsoft office I want the build to be very fast and snappy but without spending a lot of money (keeping it under say 700 euro). I added a slightly larger PSU than needed just in case a small dedicated GPU is required in the future, though I don't think it will be. Since it will be doing audio recording it's important for it to not be loud as hell. Any suggestions on what case/fan/cooler combo would achieve this best without spending too much? Everything will be bought from Spanish Amazon. Any feedback or suggestion is appreciated!

Thanks for all your help!
  15. Well I took your advice. I went with a Fractal Design Define S which even freed up a bit of budget to get a 2tb hybrid HDD. So does this look good?

  16. So I just realized that cooler doesn't come up because it's not compatible with the 450D case I chose Is it worth changing the case for that?
  17. So I updated it with an EVGA GPU, it's still under 1500$. I'm still not too sure what to do about the cooler though?

  18. That Cryorig cooler looks really nice, but it doesn't come up on PCPP. Also would it restrict the use of any of the RAM slots?
  19. Hmm I like the idea, but I think it would be a bit over budget. Also I would like to get the latest CPU in there.
  20. I was thinking that, at first I wanted to go with an H100i, but it was a bit tough to fit that in the budget. So I wanted to pick an air cooler instead, but I thought the H80i would look significantly better aesthetically and that's really why I chose it. Are there any air coolers that would keep the build looking nice (red & black color scheme), provide better cooling performance than the H80i at an equal or lower price?
  21. I want the build to be easily upgradable (in terms of storage, SLI, RAM). I chose parts that will get the job done properly (and won't really leave anything to be desired) without being too expensive in order to leave money for a very powerful GPU. Also there's a bit of a color scheme going on (red & black) which I think will make the build quite nice aesthetically. Any thoughts for overall improvement on price/performance or better choices for individual components? Thanks!

  22. I guess I should've mentioned. US parts would be ideal.
  23. Hey, I'm looking for the best price/performance 1500$ gaming build. No need to peripherals or OS, just get the most gaming horsepower possible. Thanks!
