  1. Dell 5378, with i5-7200u. Does this laptop fully switch over to AC power when sufficiently charged via Dell Manager Lite I set it to 90%, because my last laptop, circa i5 2nd gen, would trickle charge between 99-100 and after 1-1.5 years of mostly plugged in the battery life, 100-0, was about halved. I know engineers have better designed laptop circuitry, but can't find a definitive answer of if all the power will come from the AC and battery is saved. (probably won't make a huge difference in the long-run, just mostly curious)
  2. just throwing my 2cents into this: h110 mobo is fine, considering it will have little impact on your build pentium G4560 seems great for the price 8 gb ram is perfectly fine, doesn't matter unless its some very weird brand i think rx 460>1050, but not sure about 1050it great idea choosing 80+ bronz psu from EVGA, yes also factor in keyboard mouse monitor. those can add up. i know HP and acer make cheap mointors, azio makes a cool mechanical keyboard that didn't break the bank but there are cheaper options, logitech mouse i have is open box and perfectly fine. hope that helped. and good luck!
  3. 1050ti outperforms it. so as long as they are a good amount less than that.
  4. buy cheaper ram, because it really won't affect game play or anything else. better/ more reputable psu, evga is my fave, can't really save much, from what i can tell. unles you get less than a 480rx, depending on what games you play less could also work well.
  5. just on looks NZXT Noctis 450, i'm a fan of the b/w storm-trooper look but if all else is the same its whatever YOU prefer to look at.
  6. i'm not sure the specs are totally right, I checked xfx's website, but came out more confused than going in. http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/products/amd-radeon-rx-400-series#* maybe this will help...
  7. don't spend extra on the IPS panel. might be nice for media consumption/content creation. more of a "creature comfort" thing. not a huge i difference. i did notice it is slightly annoying to position my TN laptop in the right position to see things well, but eventually i got used to it, ~a week.
  8. gtx 1070 would be better. unless you really like console exclusive games.
  9. as long as all the working stuff is working. yes.
  10. http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-9800-vs-GeForce-GTX-960M according to this, ^, comparing the laptop gpu to the minimum required gpu for that MMO, it seems to be on par. I'm not too knowledgeable myself, but i hope this helped.
  11. my vote is for the rx470, or wait and save up for rx480/gtx1060.6gb. My logic is: if you want it to last 3-4 years get something good now. getting less 470 may only give you 2 years, but really depending on what setting you want to play which games at. 1050ti seems to be doing alright right now at 1080p, but i'm guessing will decline fast. vram will help with more details/textures now but especially in the future.
  12. Maybe look into acer predator or lenovo, thinkpad? but don't know much about them.
  13. is it an old case? the power on button might be faulty. unplug the front panel on switch leads on the mobo and see if it still happens.
  14. for your budget, go for laptop/external gpu dock thing. Don't think tablet would be satisfying. i think dell xps line has capabilities to connect with gpu dock. plus you already have a 1070, probably save money by keeping it rather than selling it and buying something else. (and the 1070 is a huge improvement over the 1060)
  15. more usb ports and wifi can be either via pcie expansions or using the preexisting usb ports. pcie is better, unless money is REALLY tight so the few dollar difference might make a difference. (search "wifi(/usb) adapter pci(usb)" should give plenty of results. ) Drivers are always online, need only flashdrive.
