  1. My SSD will also be below my graphics card so i might have this issue also now that i think about it. Thanks this is helpful
  2. ah ok. I also will be using it for my university work which will envolve tasks such as 3d modelling on my PC which was my thought process behind getting the more expensive option.
  3. Hi, I have purchased a Samsung 970 EVO Plus (1TB) SSD because I wanted one to store games and it just so happened that the M.2 was on sale. I was wondering, do I need to buy a heatsink for it? I have read that they can get hot under certain conditions however I wanted to check to see if it would be worth while spending the extra £10 on a heatsink. I will be using the drive as a boot drive, to store games, to edit videos/pictures (every once in a while) and to record musical instruments such as guitar. Thanks in advance.
  4. Ah OK I'll buy an audio interface then if that doesn't work out i will get the monoprice liquid spark. Thanks for the help
  5. Thanks a lot for the suggestion. I'll have a look at that if the interface doesn't work out. Im assuming if I was to buy the monoprice liquid spark I would still need another interface for the mic anyway yeah?
  6. Ok I'll try the audio interface setup first. Thanks a lot, you've been very helpful.
  7. OK I'll try doing that then. Does the audio interface allow the headset and mic to be plugged in at the same time do you know?
  8. Any recommendations for a dedicated amp? I'm guessing they are a lot more expensive yeah?
  9. Ok thanks for the recommendation. The one worry I had with the Focusrite was that some people were saying that due to it being USB powered it wouldn't be able to provide enough power for the headphones due to them being 250ohms. Do you know by any chance if the presonus audiobox would work with both the headphones and mic simultaneously? Thanks again.
  10. Only issue is that I will be recording instruments and those files wouldnt be going onto youtube or twitch. I was originally going to go with the AT2020 USB+ but thought may be better with the XLR version if I have to get an amp for the headset anyway. Again not sure if you can use the same amp for both mic and headset.
  11. Hi, I am looking to upgrade my sound setup for my PC as my current headset (Plantronics RIG500) is starting to fail on me. I am currently looking at getting a high quality headset with an external mic and have came across the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Studio Headphones and the Audio Technica AT2020/AT2035 microphones. The only issue with these is that I will need to buy an amp which does not bother me too much however I would rather not spend too much on an amp if possible. A possible option that I found as an amp for the Audio Technica mics was the Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen however I am unsure if this one amp would work for the headphones too or if I would need another separate amp for the me. In case it helps, some of the uses of the new setup will mainly be for gaming but also recording instruments such as guitar and voice chatting on discord ect. (I am aware that there is a USB version of the AT2020 however I have heard that the XLR version would provide better sound quality.) Any recommendations on possible amps is greatly appreciated as audio is something that I am not too familiar with. Thanks in advance.
  12. Ok, thanks a lot both of you for the help. I'll get the new SSD ordered asap
  13. Hi, I currently have a 120GB SSD in my PC which is used as my boot drive. I would like to upgrade to a larger drive because I constantly get messages letting me know the SSD is almost full. Could you tell me if there is any easy way to copy windows 10 over to a new SSD and then use that as the boot drive instead. Thanks in advance
