  1. AMD Wraith Stealth

    Yes, it is.
  2. Are Dell PSUs any good ?

    Who's the OEM? Delta and Lite-On are golden, other brands are hit and miss.
  3. It's possible. The biggest hurdle is that most laptops charge somewhere between 18-20V, and USB only outputs 5V. Not nearly enough. Some 2-in-1 "laptops" that are basically a tablet with a keyboard dock will accept a charge from a USB battery pack, but for anything heavier duty, you'd need to buy a pricey, specialized pack with a place to plug your laptop brick into.
  4. How to hunt for deals? (Black Friday)

    r/buildapcsales is a great place to start. Generally speaking, though, you're not going to see crazy discounts on PC components, because the bare components aren't the sort of thing that will get the typical shopper into your store/onto your site. Where you will see sharp discounts is on complete PCs, so if you think you might want to go the ezmode route and buy a dirty-ho cheap prebuilt then drop a 1050 Ti in, Black Friday is your huckleberry. If you want to build from the ground up, you're better off scouring buildapcsales now and slowly snapping up bits and pieces of your rig as you go. I've got a Biostar A320M mobo, GTX 750 Ti, EVGA 500W PSU, more HDDs than I know what to do with and a Corsair Spec Alpha case all lying around waiting for an R3 1300X to dip below $100 on sale.
  5. optiplex 9010

    What @Jamiec1130 said. Dell is fantastic with driver support, which is one of the many reasons that I believe there's no better base for your cheapo gaming PC needs than an off-lease Optiplex.
  6. best 1st gen core cpu

    An i7-880 (I think?) is the best you can get on that board. The X58 i7's were magnificent, but they need different motherboards than what the -800 series took. As for a GPU, I had a GTX 260 paired with my i7-920 for a long time, and the CPU was always a wee bit ahead. I think something like a GTX 750 Ti, GTX 1050 or RX 560 would be ideal.
  7. need a non-exploding PSU

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the lower-end Seasonics (like the Flex ATX Seasonic in the computer I'm currently typing on) primarily for server use?
  8. You're not looking very hard, are you?
  9. Best and Worst PSUs

    Anything that has 500W on the label and no PCIe connectors instantly falls into the "worst PSU ever" discussion.
  10. On a scale of one to dead, it's Titan.
  11. Translation: "We've already got the fabrication work done on these and they're in production, but we want to drum up the hype, so let's make it seem like we don't really want to in order to get people to be our own free ad agency."
  12. Definitely the Radeon HD 2400 Pro. A system running in 1000x Crossfire would be ungodly fast.
  13. Dream Computer Case

    I want an M1A1 Abrams as my PC case. Tons of room for expansion, highly mobile, and guaranteed to crush the competition in BF1 and World of Tanks.
