  1. Can I use old desktop hard drives (like 1 - 3 years old) in a NAS, or do I need NAS specific hard drives?
  2. Thanks for everything! I’ve ordered all the parts for my new PC and some of them have already come. Can’t wait to build it!
  3. Like this one? ARCTIC Freezer 33 eSports ONE - Tower CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Processor Fan for Intel and AMD Sockets - for CPUs up to 200 Watts TDP - Silent and Efficient (Red) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076LQ2BJZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_7G74DbXFY8ZSV
  4. So what about a single rad aio, Or just get the be Quiet? Is there a cpu cooler that isn’t $80 that performs as well as the Noctua cooler? I saw on Black Friday there was a single rad AIO for $50 from EVGA, which I’m sure there will be comparable options on cyber monday. what about this one? ~ https://www.newegg.com/cooler-master-masterliquid-ml120l-rgb-liquid-cooling-system/p/2YM-0004-00014?Item=2YM-0004-00014&nm_mc=AFC-RAN-COM&cm_mmc=AFC-RAN-COM&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_source=afc-PCPartPicker&AFFID=2558510&AFFNAME=PCPartPicker&ACRID=1&ASID=https%3a%2f%2fpcpartpicker.com%2fproduct%2f3P2rxr%2fcooler-master-masterliquid-ml120l-rgb-667-cfm-liquid-cpu-cooler-mlw-d12m-a20pc-r1&ranMID=44583&ranEAID=2558510&ranSiteID=8BacdVP0GFs-GtrESl5gYR9w9LRlmMCtqw
  5. What about the be quiet! BK009 Pure Rock?
  6. I’ve been looking at the stock cooler temps on the regular stock cooler, and people seem pretty divided on it. Do you think it’ll be enough for the processor or do you think I need to invest in a better cooler?
  7. Ok thanks! Do you think it’s worth getting an 240gb m.2 ssd for a boot drive? Or don’t bother?

  9. In my current pc I have a 750w Corsair fully modular 80+ gold power supply in it. Can I re-use this because it’s overkill for this new build, so even if it degraded a little, it would still supply enough power for the whole system. Or no? It’s only about 4-5 years old.
  10. If you don’t think the prebuilts are good I’ll go with the original build u sent. Is sapphire and AOC reputable brands? I’ve never heard of them? I saw that the gpu you selected was more money than the one I originally picked, if I go with the original card from the top expensive system and I would take the extra money and buy a slightly more expensive acer monitor with the same specs as the aoc. I just feel better buying from brands I know. Would I see any differences in the graphics cards.

  12. What about some of the prebuilt systems on amazon with i5’s, i7’s, or Ryzen 5’s, with 1660 Ti’s and 16GB Ram with 512gb of pcie nvme storage for $600-750? Or don’t bother?
  13. I have a triple monitor setup, would the GPU struggle if I stuck two more 1080p displays in? If so I have the gtx 970 from the old system I can use for the other two displays
  14. Also my “gaming” monitor is an lg ultra wide 2560x1080 ips 60Hz 5ms response time monitor. This is why I wanted a new monitor too. -note the quotes around gaming
  15. I was planning a new pc build since I was getting nauseous while playing games on my pc. I was getting nauseous because of frame stuttering. I had also been planning on getting a new system because I built it about 5 years ago. This is the new pc including the monitor, that based on previous posts I compiled pieces together. However if you saw the price after tax it’s close to $1600 which is totally unattainable. I would like to spend around $1000, but if for a couple more dollars I can get better performance I’ll take it. I already purchased 16GB (2-8GB sticks) of G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 3600MHz memory (because of Ryzen). So memory doesn’t need to be included in the $1000 price. This is the system I currently have.
  16. Total budget around $1200. Allocated $330 for GPU
  17. Ok I’ll see what AMD has to offer later on.
  18. I need to get a graphics card capable of playing games at 1440p 144Hz. The GPU will only be powering a single display. It’ll be paired with a Ryzen 3600 and 16GB ram and an x570 board and a 750w EVGA power supply.
  19. This is the system I’m planning on building -AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or 3600X -BeQuiet Dark Rock 4 -Some form of X570 Mobo -G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB, 3600 -Nvidia rtx 2060 super? -EVGA 750w Power Supply -Storage is a combination of an M.2 SSD and a 2.5” ssd -RGB Fans ? I’m not sure if I want to do an Micro-ATX or Mid-ATX build yet Does anyone have any recommendations of parts to change? I want to be able to play first person shooters at 1440p 144Hz
