  1. New encoder doesn't touch bandwidth though, so the reasoning behind this idea is flawed in the first place.
  2. There's no point adding in the 750Ti for video encoding when your 580 can do a better job... It really isn't that hard, honestly. Sometimes I had to do single card at a time to install drivers, other times both could be in and it was fine. Just that in this case it's just entirely pointless to do so.

    What multiplayer game do you like, but SUCK at it?

    Absolutely not. It's kinda like Arma/Squad and CS:GO had an arcadey mil-sim child. Pacing seriously depends entirely on the map and how serious the people on the server are taking it. Most of the time it just ends up being "rush b bylat" but sometimes you do end up with people that at least try. Generally checkpoint is taken less seriously than skirmish (iirc destroying three enemy weapon caches). If you wanna give them a shot I'd highly recommend picking the source version up and playing co-op (Sernix and Bot Massacre servers are great). Sandstorm doesn't have custom servers with a ton of mods like Source so if you're more into "pure" and somewhat more serious gameplay then that one would be a bit better. If you ever want pure asshole torture Sernix servers are fantastic at it, especially when it's a full house. Full lobby of 18 players and difficult bots can be incredibly difficult, especially when you're last man standing. Too bad their servers seem to have died super hard when BM servers gained traction.
  4. Not sure how this works on iOS (last time I used it was iOS 6 on an iPad 2) but is there a menu in the settings app that shows all the accounts you've used or whatever? That's honestly the only thing I can think of that would still make it show up for some reason.

    I would say Insurgency but I literally only play co-op so I'm going to go with Overwatch. Junkrat and Zenyatta are the antichrist in that game I swear.

    Found an old graphics card, need drivers

    Pretty ignorant/idiotic thing to say. Who gives a fuck how old it is when it's going into a server. Not like you'll be daily driving one.

    Man how I would love to get one of those for my current XP rig. I did get a 3650 for it, but it ended up being DOA so that was a painful refund.

    Contact lens vs Glasses?

    Glasses for me. Would rather have to pay more for a single set that lasts a year (even though insurance soaks a lot of that up), and there is no way in hell you're getting me to put something into my eyehole like that. Nuh uh, no way.

    If you put forth even the slightest amount of effort to read the OP, you'd have realized it's for a media server, which it would be fine for.

    How often do you clean your PC?

    I just brush off the side panel's intake when I bring it to a friends house. Only clean the inside like twice a year since I can't be fucked to keep it spotless.

    Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

    Highly doubt it was hot enough to do anything to the cable. Hot to humans =/= hot to tech.
  14. The 5700XT has 1750MHz "real" clock (14,000 effective) memory.

    Unless you manage to jam it in there so hard that you strip a wire and get it to short (which would take some uh... talent), there's no reason not to do that.

    Ditto on what Ethan said. That car in particular is the TVR Griffith.

    1150 Socket Motherboard Recommendations

    No Z97 boards had RGB, and if memory serves Gigabyte and maybe one other company (ASUS maybe?) were doing single-color underglow, mainly under the audio breakout. Haswell is not the platform for fancy lighting, we still actually had to put forth a small amount of effort to theme our systems. Really the only Z97 boards worth looking at are from ASUS and Gigabyte, with ASRock's high-end boards in the mix as well. Avoid MSI at all costs, because their boards were complete explosive diarrhea. The MPOWER was decent, but it's not worth buying.

    There were quite a few, actually. Lots of Dells had heatpiped coolers as well (my 170L DT has a full copper one).
  19. The cooler is a waste of money and something like the Crucial BX500 would be a better choice for SSD. A little bit more money would also get you a Focus G which is a better case all around. Other than that it doesn't look totally awful. I would certainly try and save up a bit more if at all possible for a 6-core chip, because the 1200 won't have a fun time in a lot of newer titles.

    NEED HELP (part 2 ;( sorry)

    Later on down the line if you're sticking to 1080p I think the only thing I'd want to upgrade would be the CPU to a 3000 series chip (at least if you went with 16GB out of the gate) as well as just slowly replacing peripherals until I had things I really liked. If you wanted to make the jump to 1440p or 4K then I'd definitely place a priority on a better GPU (which at this point in time would be an RX5700/XT AIB card depending on pricing) and then a 3000 series chip.

    You'd be taking a roughly 20% hit in most games with a good 570 8GB (4GB cards are pointless) for about 15% less money. Kind of a silly downgrade if you ask me.

    NEED HELP (part 2 ;( sorry)

    Personally I wouldn't go that route. Intel on a budget isn't the best of ideas, and the 1660 is not fast enough to warrant the (relatively) massive increase in price. You'd be gaining 5-10% in framerate while spending considerably more and losing damn near all of the space you'd have to store games. Thinking about it a bit more though, something you may wish to consider if you want the HS70, you could swap out the 16GB RAM kit in my original list with this kit, as that should get you pretty much there (again, not taking shipping into account because I can't), and 16GB (while very nice to have) isn't absolutely necessary yet. But to play devil's advocate, you spend about 50% more for twice the RAM.

    My chrome browser is being slow.

    Don't forget to quote people so they know you responded. I had no idea you said anything afterwards until I saw the thread pop up again and clicked it out of curiosity. Realistically then in your case, something you may want to consider is dual booting Xubuntu or some flavor of Linux Mint (both are pretty lightweight and friendly to Linux newbies). Both should have a live boot where you can "try it before you buy it" so to speak, so that may be worth a consideration to figure out which you like more before actually going through with it. If you actually decide to go through with it, obviously back up your important data just in case, then resize the Windows partition (there are guides on how to do this, just be aware it can be a pain in the ass sometimes, I've had generally good luck with EaseUS Partition Magic for when I can't get the job done in Disk Management/command prompt) and use something like Rufus or Etcher to make a bootable USB, and then install it. I'd try to make sure you have at least 40GB for the Linux install, just so you have at least a little bit of breathing room for stuff you install or may end up downloading.

    Alright so this is what I came up with. Covers all the basics for what current-day competent gaming PCs tend to have, with about ~30 bucks left over after MIR and promo discounts to put towards something like the HS70 (at least before shipping, I can't really account for that).
