  1. I was afraid of that. Oh well, guess I'll have to shuffle some things around. Any recommendation for a white AiO by chance? Don't want to mess with my theme
  2. Is there some sort of adapter bracket that would work? I know I used an AM4 bracket to mount the AiO for my Ryzen system.
  3. I have a Zotac Amp Edition 1080ti that I want to use the g12 bracket with. I know it's compatible with the card, but the DeepCool Captain 240ex (which I already own) isn't listed as a compatible AIO. Any reason it wouldn't work anyway? Does anyone have experience with this bracket?
  4. I’m getting a good headset soon, and I already have a decent one, I’m looking to use these more for watching movies and YouTube. Don’t want to wear a headset all the time, you know? So, any recommendations for AV receivers? Space is a bit of a concern, so smaller would be better.
  5. Hi friends; While cleaning out the garage I stumbled across this set of Sony speakers. They look like they are in perfect condition, and I’m not even sure they have ever been used. My question is this: what options do I have for connecting them to my pc? Is there some sort of usb amp/dac that would do the job? I’m kind of an audio noob, so any relevant links would be appreciated too. Also: does anyone know what these are? Are they decent quality? I haven’t looked up the serial number yet, but I will.
  6. Did you get yours after market, or did it come with the gpu?
  7. I'm in the planning stages of a new build, and I'm not sure which 1080ti to buy. I'm looking at the MSI seahawk x, which is water cooled, and an evga open air cooled model. The price is slightly higher for the water-cooled card (obviously) around $50 US more. My question is, is it worth it?
  8. Another option for 1440p 144hz: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mNBrxr/aoc-ag271qx-270-2560x1440-144hz-monitor-ag271qx Same price as the above dell, and virtually the same specs. Another consideration is do you need G-Sync? Depending on which titles you play, my own research suggests that the 1070 might not be able to push enough frames at 1440p for a smooth (tear free) experience without it, but I could be wrong, and it is an extra ~$170. Edit: As far as the move from 75hz to 144hz is concerned, you do get diminishing returns higher than ~75 from my own experience and what I've read from others. It's like upgrading from an HDD to an SSD. You don't notice until you have to go back and use the old tech how much better the new stuff is.
  9. After more research, it seems like the 1700 and the 1700x perform within 5% of each other in benchmarking, for both gaming and rendering, making the 1700 a much better price/performance. If anyone has more knowledge to share on that subject, I'd love to hear it.
  10. Keeping in mind that Windows will cost far less than listed, here is a more finalized parts list: PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/YWbKD8 Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/YWbKD8/by_merchant/ CPU: AMD - Ryzen 7 1700X 3.4GHz 8-Core Processor ($347.76 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: Thermaltake - Water 3.0 Extreme S 99.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($84.33 @ OutletPC) Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver - 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 3.5g Thermal Paste ($4.75 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock - AB350 Pro4 ATX AM4 Motherboard ($87.89 @ OutletPC) Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($112.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Western Digital - Blue 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($83.89 @ OutletPC) Storage: Seagate - Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($66.89 @ OutletPC) Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Gaming OC 11G Video Card ($683.99 @ SuperBiiz) Case: Phanteks - ECLIPSE P400S TEMPERED GLASS ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Newegg) Operating System: Microsoft - Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit ($132.89 @ OutletPC) Monitor: AOC - Q2778VQE 27.0" 2560x1440 60Hz Monitor ($249.99 @ Amazon) Keyboard: Razer - BlackWidow Chroma Wired Gaming Keyboard ($133.99 @ B&H) Total: $2149.34 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-06-12 19:03 EDT-0400 With good shopping over the next month, I should be able to build it for less than $2000, which was my goal. I made a mistake in the original list and selected the Ryzen 7 1700 instead of the 1700x, which comes at a higher clock speed as well as having XFR. I know I could get a less expensive keyboard, but it matches my mouse. I'm still not sure about the monitor, but we'll see. More suggestions are always welcomed. EDIT: Also, the build flags the watercooler for possibly needing a mount adapter to fit on the motherboard. Anyone know if that is the case?
  11. Any input on the monitor? It looks good on paper, but it seems cheap for what you're getting.
  12. If I can keep it under $100, I should be able to do it.
  13. Yeah, I was planning on buying windows 3rd party, just wanted to include it in the price estimate. As far as the case goes, any suggestions? I'd like to keep it a mid tower for size, but if a full would be better for thermals then I could move up as long as the price is right. The only real requirement is it needs to have a front usb 3.0. Is the extra $100 for a third party 1080 TI really worth it? I haven't found any thermal benchmarks to confirm or deny.
  14. I'm in the planning stages of a new build, and I'm looking for some help keeping it under budget. I can afford around $2,000 US including peripherals. I already have a mouse, headset, and Microphone. The PC will be used for both gaming and editing/rendering. I have a basic idea, but suggestions and changes are welcomed.
