  1. like the look of the db700/900, i will look into them a bit more
  2. thanks for that. they arent the most appealing designs, might have to forego the windowed panel
  3. I am looking for a new case as i want a bit of a change. I currently have an enthoo evolv atx... its pretty but its huge, and the main viewing window is on the left side of the case which means i have to have the case backwards on my desk to see the components and not the 'cable management'. all the cases i have seen so far are set up the same way, are there any case set up with the window panel on the right side of the case?
  4. This is my current build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/G6HJFd (i7-8700k / Z370 sli plus / 16gb DDR4 / gtx 1080ti) I would like to get stable 60+ fps (closer to 144fps preferably) on high or ultra at 1440p, mainly larger games like eleder scrolls and assassins creed but I do play other stuff. Am I just expecting too much from the current build? If so what would i realisticly neeed to upgrade to achieve my goal?
  5. Budget (including currency): £700 Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mainly gaming, occasional video editing and college work Current build consists of: intel i7-8700k CPU MSI Z370 SLI Plus Single GeForce GTX 1080Ti Strix EVGA SuperNova 750w PSU Phanteks Enthoo Evolv case I am looking at adding a second GPU to my PC but im not sure if A) the benefits outweigh the costs B) I need to upgrade anything else to stop bottlenecks. I have seen a few used GeForce GTX 1080Ti Strix on ebay for anywhere between £500 and £700 and they all look to be in good condition, with that in mind i would like to know how much of an improvement i would get when it comes to running games. Right now i can run most games on ultra locked at 60fps due to my monitor, i have upgraded to a 144hrz monitor so it would be nice to get the most out of that. I do get frame rate drops in larger games like AC odessey so have to drop to high and turn down shadows and stuff like that to help. The only issue i know i would need to solve is finding a new way to get wifi connection as the motherboard lacks built in network other than LAN, i have a cheap network card installed onto the board right now but could probbaly get a usb wifi adapter. I also have no idea how sli works and would have to watch some videos about it
  6. I am looking to get a controler for the rgb in my PC. Right now i am using: Icue for my mouse (Corsair M65 Pro) Aura for my graphics card (Asus GTX 1080ti) MSI Dragon Centre for my MB (MSI Z370) Case LEDs do what they want (Enthoo Evolv ATX) Is there a controler that will make it so all of these have the same colour and the same effects?
  7. any idea why HDMI ports are put on MBs that dont have built in GPU?
  8. I am having a few issues with my PC so i want to return it to the state it would be in when you first install windows. Wol;d it be best to back-up everything i want to keep then just format my SSD and HDD? The main issue i have is my motherboard isnt recognising any headsets plugged into the audio jacks o the front or back. I have installed and updated all the drivers and follwed all the tutorials a i could find about the issue, nothing works. I am also having issues with the RGB button not working on my case but i think that is likely down to a cable.
  9. Looking for a dedicated monitor mainly for gaming and occasional video editing. Currently using a 55" 4k TV that doesnt have the refresh rate to go over 60fps without screen tearing, great for consoles but a bit of a waste for PC gaming. I have had a look around and its all a bit overwhelming and im seeing lots of mixed reviews, i have 2 options picked out so far for what i think is a decent price Acer 27" Predator (G-sync) for £480 AOC 32" Agon (Freesync) for £400 Out of these two i would be more swayed towards the AOC Agon because of the larger screen and lower price but im not sure if i would benefit more from G-sync as i have a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Also, is there a way to turn dual screens on and off as i occasionally like to watch youtube and netflix on the 55" TV.
  10. I will take a look. have you had any experience with the Sennheiser URBANITE XL Wireless? the reviews on amazon are good and they are relatively cheap
  11. I am looking for a pair of wireless headphones to listen to music while not at home, my budget is around £140. I have a pair of Audiotechnica ATH-M20X (cheap pair of studio headphones) that are really comfortable and sound great so i am leaning towards another set of audiotechnica, noise cancelling would be nice but its not a must, the battery life needs to be goood though (at least 24 hours of heavy use).
  12. I bought an OLED TV (lg oled55b8p) a few weeks ago and keeps forcing on the 'HDMI ultra deep colour'. this option just doesn't work with some games and causes a lot of stutter and display issues (black screens, white flickers). I can manually turn off the feature but then it instantly turns it back on automatically. is there a way to disable this feature from turning on automatically?
  13. after finding a forum post about burn in from stuff like this, pretty much everyone said it wasn't a problem and that the TVs have settings you can turn on to help reduce the chance even further.
  14. are OLED TVs suitable for gaming? i am presuming the colours are much more vibrant, but do they have a refresh rate high enough for it to run smoothly?
  15. I am looking to switch TVs as my current one leaves me stuck at 30fps with vsync on, or with a horrible screen tearing mess with vsync disabled. My only real criteria is that it has to be black/grey and have a good refresh rate. I had a quick look and found an LG 49SJ810V 49". it has a 200hz refresh rate so it should be able to play games without ridiculous scree tearing.... but it is silver (and the stand is ugly). i have seen companies use there own system for defining the 'picture quality' and its just nonsense, 1200pqi? picture quality index, what is that even supposed to mean? just tell me the damn refresh rate. I have also seen claims of 300+ hz, even 1000+ hz, that just seems to be fake to me If you can recommend a good tv with a good price then please do, but for now i am going to continue wading through the mess that is the currys website
