  1. It's a headphone cable. These specific ones where made to use headphones with dual 2.5mm connections.
  2. @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?
  3. I appreciate the input so far.
  4. Out of the two options, which would you prefer, and why?
  5. How much would it matter if I got something rated for more RMS, say 30-40W?
  6. @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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. What reviewers that are reliable and trustworthy use it. I don't mean bringing up the claims, I mean ACTUALLY use it.
  13. When have you ever seen anyone use TFLOP as an actual performance metric beyond AMD or Nvidia themselves?
  14. Vulkan is a low-level API, just like DirectX. The difference is DirectX is Windows specific(proprietary) where as Vulcan is Open Source. Anyone can get ahold of Vulcan and alter it, or even have it function natively on other operating systems, like Linux or (theoretically) Mac OS. Yes, the majority of games are DX11/DX12, however an open source API(like Vulkan) allows devs to reach out to a much wider audience, like those who don't want to use Windows. Yes, companies sponsering games are, and probably will always be a thing, and no, Nvidia will not be happy about someone they are funding using a competitor's resources. As far as people being upset about exclusives is irritating, but understandable. Companies don't like competition. Having more places and more accounts for us to keep track of is also cumbersome. However, even in cases like Boarderlands 3, it's only a temporary exclusivity.
  15. They beat Nvidia at other games as well, just not as readily. Not to mention, this is an example they finally get to show off Vulkan again, as only two games I'm aware of are using it. it is great that competition is heating up, but I don't think that Vulkan and AMD are going to overthrow DX12 or nVidia anytime soon. Microsoft and nVidia have too much fight in them to let that happen.
  16. Noticed this while going through Google News. Straight from WCCFTech and TechQuila, both will be linked to at the bottom. Well, we haven't heard anything from Vulkan since Doom (2016), so it's nice to see that Team Red is getting some love. I would like to say that I disagree with the claim that it's made NVIDIA's success obsolete, especially with the marketshare, lack of decent competition, and lack of implementation of Vulkan(Though the same can be said about RTX at this point, but I digress). Would also disagree that DX12 has made things worse, just in the beginning, there was no motive to utilize it the way it should. Now, it's more the way games are being marketed and the kind of bugs being found that are making them garbage.(We will not speak of some of the horrors that EA, Bethesda, Blizzard and the like have tried cramming down our throats) Well now, ain't that something. At 1080, even the air cooled Vega 64 which start at $420 (if you can find one) is readily beating the ~$1100+ RTX 2080 Ti. Even the $279+ Vega 56 is matching the 2080 Ti in the lows, and is 11 FPS lower in the average, which would make it a smoother experience, at that that high a framerate, more people won't be able to tell the difference. The story continues with the gaps closing, and NVIDIA gaining back the lead at 4K, though by a small margin. Still, even the RX 590 is putting up a fight against the much more expensive RTX 2070 at 1440p and 4K. Well, while game was only just recently released, and does not seem to be getting the best reception, it does seem to be an AMD sponsered title, and use their open source API, which would give them the obvious edge, though this much at lower resolutions is a bit much. Oh, I don't doubt for a moment that they will try to come back, should they deem it worthy. With the reception of the game however.... Well, only time will tell. Either way, a very nice showing from AMD, and something for Team Red to be happy about. As promissed, here are the links(TechQuila was used for this, as it seemed that WCCFTech was just using their artical to go off of): TechQuila: https://www.techquila.co.in/amd-radeon-vii-vs-nvidia-rtx/ WCCFTech: https://wccftech.com/amd-rx-vega-64-outperforms-nvidia-rtx-2080-by-14-in-vulkan-enabled-world-war-z/
  17. Alright, I've got a friend who's come to me with this.... he's trying to build a computer, (r3 1200) and is just wanting to get into gaming. He's bought everything..... but the graphics card and some extra case fans. He's using the Thermaltake Versa H15 (non-windowed version). What's worse, he's only got $70 left in the budget. There's no way we're picking up anything decent new, and the fan that's included looks like it belongs in the garbage disposal(plus it wouldn't be good to get a case that looks to be well ventilated, only not to use it). Any ideas or suggestions? Fyi, most of it was bought used, so returning things may be out of the question. He's also in a really rural area, and the nearest "city" is 4-5 hours from where they live.
  18. I have the DT990 Pros, and I love them. I personally don't notice them being too bright like others have complained about, but that may just be me. They do need an amp though. The HD 58x are an excellent choice, and aren't far off sound quality wise from the HD 660s. Another option that wouldn't be bad is the HiFiMAN HE-350, though I would say to keep in mind that you may want to swap the pads for Brainwaves angled velour pads, and the arms aren't the best build quality(mine arrived broken on a Monday, but after reaching out to HiFiMAN, they had a replacement in my hands by the same Friday). As for an dac/amp, you've got a few different options, all dependent of what you have left in the budget and what you're looking for.

  21. I'd check out Z Reviews. I don't have a pair offhand that I would recommend.
  22. That effect can be pulled off with a good pair of headphones. Get a pair with good imaging, and it'll feel like you can pinpoint where individual instruments are.

  24. Best way for that, cheap PSU that's strong enough to run the computer. Keep that around for testing purposes.
