  1. Hi I'm looking to purchase the beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Studio Headphones (80 Ohm). I've got an Asus Maximus VII Hero motherboard, which has "SupremeFX 2014 + Sonic Radar II". Would that be okay for the headphones or will I need to purchase a seperate DAC & AMP for them?
  2. I'm just thinking because as it's price so high and as I've got it for free - I was going to take advantage of the offer. If Ubuntu is better though, might as well use that
  3. I'm not really sure of which operating system I should use on my home server which is a Dell PowerEdge 2950. I'm either going to install Windows Server 2016 which I can get for FREE with Microsoft Imagine or otherwise Ubuntu which I've had around two years of experience with. I'm going to use the server for the following and maybe a bit more in the future: Storage Server Plex Media Server and maybe the occasional game server when needed. What do you think I should use?
  4. Does anyone know if this is good? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Nvidia-1060-GDDR5-PCI-E/dp/B01K7I7M00/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1482709581&sr=1-1&keywords=gtx+1060
  5. Hey, I recently purchased a computer to build myself but I have not purchased a GPU yet as I didn't know which one to purchase. This computer is for the casual game and for designing with Photoshop and rendering with Premier Pro and After Effects. (no massive projects though; small ones). If anyone could give me advice on one to purchase, looking at under £300 then I'd appreciate the support Best regards, Alistair W
  6. Had a browse around and came across this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Z97P-D3-LGA1150-Motherboard-USB3-0/dp/B00K9R1OCW/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1479582145&sr=1-1&keywords=gigabyte+motherboard Anyone had any experiences with this or can anyone tell me if it's any good?
  7. I'm still not sure on what to pick for a motherboard. To be honest I'm stuck between MSI and Asus.
  8. I was actually looking at this originally, something on these lines anyway: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VII_RANGER/
  9. Hey, I'm looking at purchasing a custom built PC for using programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premier Pro and Adobe After Effects and also the occasional game such as GTA. I need a computer to run all this and be able to handle it all smoothly. I have a budget set at £1500 for a decent computer. I have configured a computer on PCPARTPICKER and need opinions if it will be decent enough! Here's the list if you would like to have a look: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/FFV6qk The M.2 storage drive is for the bootup / os disk and will just handle Windows 10. Then, the HDD will handle storage such as games and documents. I may also put an SSD / another HDD in at a later date once I use up all my storage. I'm also looking for help picking a budget graphic card that will handle everything specified above. Thank you for your help!
