  1. I see no one suggesting an 8-core build for OP's streaming purposes, so here goes.

A lot of these choices come from my own taste, like the (good) 750W PSU so you can do SLI without having to get a new one. 27" 1440p monitor for high-resolution games and a case I quite like, from Cooler Master. That mouse is great for fingertippers, feel free to substitute a Logitech G402 or G502 if you palm grip.
  2. I think given how intense your workload is, remote computing isn't really a choice, instead you have the choice of carrying a small mini-ITX build + peripherals + monitor around (you could buy one of those 23" 4K screens for portability). And for editing 4K video I definitely would go 32GB. As for a laptop, something like an i7-6700HQ + 32GB RAM + SSD would probably do an ok job, you can buy 32GB RAM in 16GB SO-DIMMs if you're having a hard time finding a 32GB laptop that's reasonably priced.
  3. Don't touch the voltage, it does nothing on Pascal cards And you should be able to easily hit 2100MHz if you put the power limit as high as it will go. Just keep it cool
  4. Dammit I want it back
  5. Right no need to replace unless it's a Diablotek "1200W"
  6. Ok you getting technical helps
  7. Yeah not particularly glad that I had it done. But you can't regret it because you didn't choose to Probably just a carry over from the jewish. There was a time when it actually was useful for cleanliness, probably. Please don't make me horny, not today ://////
  8. Wow I found an EVGA Torq X3 (like the X5 but lower-end sensor) for $12 and I couldn't help clicking buy xD

      x3 has 3090, not a bad sensor at all. 

      x3l has some shitty laser sensor though

    4. Energycore


      Got the one with the 3090, made uber sure.


      Would have liked an X5 with its 3988, but it was literally 2.5x the price. Fuck that

  9. I will humor you for a day.
  10. 1) You got the word mixed up 2) Yes if you watch them enough eventually you learn their language, then you start growing feathers until one day you wake as a horrible bird-human. I'll stop derailing this thread now ^.^
  11. Oh yeah I love duck Just cuz I care about their conservation don't mean I don't get to eat 'em!
  12. I've been on an abyssus for the longest time. It's a fine fingertip mouse, and it's worked, but its sensor isn't super amazing and it's a bit small for my taste. I would recommend an EVGA TORQ X5 (not the laser, the optical one) as it's got a similar design (bit bigger but only just), fine switches and a pretty great sensor (the Pixart 3988). Yes EVGA makes mice lol
  13. Not a big difference between the 850 EVO and a low-end NVMe drive in random read, or even in sequential; I don't think it will be noticeable in games.
  14. Ah yeah, birds are nervous fuckers. Most will run from you, some will even fake death if you go close to their offspring so as to make you interested in them. And then there's geese.
  15. That's why we have rules like don't go chasing the birds
