  1. 1180ti will be a while, possibly a year if the 1080ti is anything to go off of, so 1180 would be what you would want. That is, of course if you can wait until august-ish
  2. is that a good deal ?

    Not for gaming. Those cpus have trash IPC and only run at 2.0GHz.
  3. Gaming router

  4. Whats a good video card to use?

    Budget? Resolution? Refresh rate?
  5. need a pc!!

    You're not really going to find anything new and decent in that pricerange; you'd be better off shopping the used market.
  6. 390 on x79 do not work

    Do you have a second system to try it in? Is your power supply sufficient?
  7. 1. Make sure you aren't cross-threading them 2. Use a crescent wrench or pliers to screw them in if you aren't cross threading them and they are too hard to turn.
  8. ‘Developer Union' Asks Apple for App Store Reforms...

    I know that... I didnt know of a way to link to thousands of apps at once so i settled for the top 100.

  10. HTPC/NAS Build

    Not really, lots of random things make such a solution not very pretty. In another situation I would seriously consider it though, thanks.
  11. HTPC/NAS Build

    My bad, I should have mentioned this in the OP: this system is meant to fit on a shelf in a rack. The GD08 is the perfect size.
  12. HTPC/NAS Build

    I guess we'll just have to disagree on that point. Nope, single GPU passthrough is perfectly possible (I have done it). Somewhat, though IMO the benefits outweigh the one-time setup issues. It's been working since late summer of last year.
  13. Best air cooler under 138mm?

    I think I'll go with the U9B SE2. Thank you both!
  14. HTPC/NAS Build

    As counter-intuitive as it sounds, reliability. I honestly don't trust WIndows after bad experiences I've had with it, and would rather trust a linux-based solution. I also want to mess around with docker containers, which are less convoluted on linux. There are also many miscellaneous reasons. Worst case scenario I can't get unraid working satisfactorily during the trial period and I just go full windows. Thanks for the suggestion though. Thanks, the 970 is actually a tad cheaper, so I'll go with it.
  15. HTPC/NAS Build

    So I've been compiling this list for a while now and now I'm ready to pull the trigger. Here is the PCPP link: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/sazrocks/saved/n2YM8d This build is a HTPC build that will run unRAID, splitting 4 cores for the gaming portion, which will use the 1080 and the SSD, and keep 4 cores for the NAS/Plex server. Any suggestions?
