  1. I wouldn't call Team Group a no name brand

Look better? (If I recall, WiFi6 aka AX is backwards compatible with AC)
  3. So, a friend has convinced their folks to get them a new gaming PC for Christmas. Estimated budget is $1000 for the tower. Not concerned about size or aestetics, but will be targeting 1080p, playing open world RPG style games with lots of texture mods. I've been asked to throw together a parts list, and this is what I came up with: PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Q39jyk CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($194.00 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim 35.14 CFM CPU Cooler ($28.00 @ Amazon) Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Best Buy) Memory: Patriot Viper Steel 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($74.98 @ Amazon) Storage: Team L5 LITE 3D 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($82.99 @ Newegg) Video Card: PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 8 GB Video Card ($349.99 @ Amazon) Case: Cougar MX330 ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.00 @ B&H) Power Supply: *SeaSonic FOCUS Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply ($69.90 @ Amazon) Case Fan: In Win Sirius Loop ASL120 (3-Pack) 50 CFM 120 mm Fans ($29.00 @ Amazon) Total: $987.85 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available *Lowest price parts chosen from parametric criteria Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-11-05 08:55 EST-0500 Anything you would modify? If so, what would you change, and why?
  4. It's a headphone cable. These specific ones where made to use headphones with dual 2.5mm connections.
  5. @dizmo @nick name @sowon @Froody129 What would y'all think about having the base form be the heatshrink, but with an upgrade option with a slight premium? If so, what would you think a fair cost would be for that upgrade?
  6. I appreciate the input so far.
  7. Out of the two options, which would you prefer, and why?
  8. How much would it matter if I got something rated for more RMS, say 30-40W?
  9. @Ravendarat @circeseye Okay, from my understanding, provided I get a compatible size (for the life of me, I haven't been able to find it online, and haven't broken out a ruler as of yet), impedence (from what I've found 4oHm), I should be fine. This sound about right? I'm not sure how rms comes into play here, as I know that Logitech claims it's a 15w sub with 5w satellites, totaling 25w, but with a peak of 50w.
  10. They did say they where wanting to stay with something smaller and compact, eliminating full ATX and eATX, beyond that, a 350W unit will hold back a 1080ti paired with anything remotely sensible to have with it. A 550-600W unit at least would be a personal recommendation.
  11. For one, the case effects the size constraints of everything else. I can't say for case manufacturer, as there are far too many decent ones out there, and everyone has good and bad implementations. Power supplys are a bit more cut and dry. I tend to suggest looking at something from EVGA, Corsair, or SeaSonic first, looking at be quiet! or Cooler Master after, should you not find something that you don't like. This is not to say that none of these brands don't have worse skews, just they have a much better track record then others.
  12. SO, I understand these aren't the best speakers out there to begin with, but they get the job done for now, and don't sound too bad for a little over $25. However, I was wondering if anyone has tried upgrading the subwoofer driver, and what their experience was.
  13. Found a couple cards, and they are looking to come out to about the same cost. An EVGA GTX 970 FTW (just the card), and a Sapphire RX 470 Nitro+ 4GB w/box. Both a little more then $60 shipped. Games I play are: Mass Effect (1-3) Kingdom Classic/New Lands BioShock (1-Infinite w/remastered versions) Borderlands (GOTY Enhanced Edition, The Pre-Sequel, and 2) The Witcher (1-3) The Elder Scrolls (Morrowind-Skyrim[modded]) Spellbreak Apex Legends CSGO Dirty Bomb Paladins Warframe Dota 2 Fallout 3 NieRAutomata Final Fantasy VII Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII X-Blades Bayonetta Skullgirls Undertale Ori and the Blind Forest Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice Axiom Verge Peggle Papers, Please Minecraft Subnautica Battlefront (og and 2) Battlefield 1942 Some emulated games (Gamecube, GBA/GBC, PS/PSP, DS) Soooo, yeah, I play a bit of alot of different games. Which would you go with and why?
  14. It is, and it isn't. In this case, it's more Vega and Touring. This comparison and all the others that Hardware Unboxed have done demonstrate how different games will operate differently based on how the game is optimized, coded, and who's sponsoring it.
