  1. I am going to be building a PC for my uncle, he will, mainly be writing emails, documents, and other office related stuff. I know a lot of the parts I choose are a bit “high end” for his use-case, but I want it to be future proofed. I will be buying all of these parts at microcenter tomorrow, and was wondering what you think of them. (We are at the Minnesota microcenter) Budget is $500 https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ZIC/saved/DV2hgs Thanks
  2. What about in video games or other programs?
  3. Copy pasted from my reddit post " Here's the story: I've been looking to buy some nicer speakers with a sub and amp. I told my mom about it, and I was just waiting for the Micca Origain to come back in stock. Well, my mom told me to come over because she had some unused "audio stuff". Well it ended up being an Onkyo TX-NR609 and a RTD 3133 (without the 'H' in the title), The RTD didn't have the amp/receiver in the box, but in the other box there was a Onkyo TX-NR609, so that should be work for this setup." I am also going to add a Micca RB42 for my front 2 speakers, I'm deciding on Dayton Audio Sub 800 or a Monoprice 12in subwoofer, and a Micca RB42C. So now I am going to have a 7.1 surround sound system. Any recommendations? TLDR: So basically. I start to get into high-end audio. Find a bunch of nice stuff. Now I have 7.1 Surround Sound System
  4. I currently am setting up a surround sound system for movies on my PC, and I was wondering if I could even utilize it for gaming. I mainly play CSGO, PUBG, Apex, R6S etc. on my arctis 7, and I know CSGO has HRTF (what other games use this technology or something similar?). Back to surround sound. Do games even support real surround sound? and if they don’t, could I just disable my other speakers and use a 2.1 setup that uses HRTF (or something similar) while gaming? If not I can just continue using my Arctis 7 for gaming. Thanks
  5. I’ve known about the shortages since it’s started, and with the recent news I’m am getting more interested in it again. But none of the websites really explain in-depth of why there are shortages, so if you guys could explain it or give me some links (articles), that would be great! Thanks
  6. First time buying audiophile equipment, please correct me because I am a noob at this! My MAX budget is $500USD, the speakers will be on my desk (8in deep x 9in wide max), the speakers will be in my room, and I want to add a subwoofer. I currently am thinking of 2 options for speakers 1. The Micca MB42X (Lower-endOption) 2. The Klipsch R-41M (Higher-end option) For AMP's I'm thinking of the Micca OriGain but its power output is 50W per speaker, so maybe a Dayton Audio APA150 would be better? (I still don't know much about the power output, power handling, RMS etc. so correct me if I'm wrong). For the subwoofer I'm thinking of getting the Dayton Audio SUB-800. @Enderman? Thanks
  7. You never have enough fans. I have 3 Noctua NF-A14's, and 4 fans on my Kraken X52. You don't need to go as extreme as me, so what your doing is just fine. Also, this may help with controlling them if you don't have enough on your motherboard.
  8. I will get the GMMK, but what is the equivalent of Chery MX Clear/Greys from other brands that I could get, also why are the other switches "vastly superior", how are they better? I thought Cherry MX was the top brand? Also are SMD-LED switches just those clear switches that let RGB light through? Thanks
  9. I’m not sure, but it might be the chipset drived
  10. Do you have Corsair Link? Maybe fan settings to low? Or maybe there is a driver error and it’s reporting the wrong temperatures, try a different software and update drivers (bios to). Maybe fan connection to loose on cooler, so make sure all the power connectors are all the way in. Or something is wrong with the pump
  11. I currently have MX Browns and love them, but they are to light for me. I have been looking for some MX Greys and found the KBParadise V80 but it is out of stock, and since grey is an unpopular switch I don't know when it will be back in stock. Are there any other MX Tactile Grey keyboards? If not would the VA87M be a good choice for MX Clears? or do you have other recommendations? Budget is around $150, prefer to use amazon or PayPal, want a TKL keyboard. @geo3? Thanks
  12. Hi, I am building a cheap office/productivity build for my mom, I am using the RAM from one of my other builds, case is being bought from micro center for $44 and CPU for $60. Trying to keep it under $350. Any recommendations would be great! https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ZIC/saved/cBprVn Thanks
  13. Thanks for the recommendation! Just one more thing, what’s the difference between the A300W and the A300 Thanks
  14. I’m going to be building a new PC for my parents. Basic web browsing, Microsoft word printing etc. must be under $400 and it has to have Wi-Fi built in to motherboard. Here are some questions I have: how tall is stock CPU cooler that comes with 200GE? Will it fit in case?, does the motherboard come with antenna’s, or do I have to buy my own. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yPyKHB Thanks
  15. I was looking for gaming chair reviews and found this one on this Forbes reveiw is this a good deal? It looks like all the OEM’s chairs on amazon, but on sale. I am coming from a crappy plastic chair with nothing good about it, so I’m not to picky. I’m not willing to spend more than $100 on a chair, so brands like DXRacer won’t work, and I mainly play FPS games while I’m on my computer. Also I’ve heard that gaming chairs is marketing gimmick and to just buy a ergo chair, I really don’t care about looks, so gaming or ergo is good. What do you guys think? Thanks
