  1. You can always keep it for travel purposes or a mult-media computer for your TV etc.
  2. You want to know if its worth it to sell? Do you need a new PC? Is it struggling to play the games you want play? If your upgrading and never going to use the laptop again then yes of course its worth it to sell. Thats a very capable gaming laptop that you should have no problem getting a fair amount of money for, I would say its worth around 850-1000 euro maybe a bit more. Unless its absolutely mint brand new condition then maybe a couple hundred more.
  3. Stay away from anything that says "gaming" if your willing to spend 400.00$ Buy yourself a really nice set of stereo headphones, a headphone amp/dac & a mod mic. If your into all the surround sound stuff there is software that you can download that will do that for you. Checkout massdrop for great headphone choices and prices.
  4. 1. Status Audio CB-1 - Super comfy, sound great for the price. 2. NVX XPT 100's - Very Neutral headphone good for monitoring etc VERY COMFORTABLE 3. Audio Technica M40x w/ HM5 Angled pad mod - You have to do the pad mod to make them good but these sound fantastic for just about anything these are my go to closed back setup when im not using my open back headphones. Gun shots and explosions sound excellent. If you want more info on these headphones or (Senn HD558's, HD6xx/650) I own or have owned all of them and can help with any questions just pm me. https://www.status.co/products/cb1 https://nvx.com/xpt100-studio-over-ear-headphones/ https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATHM40x-Professional-Monitor-Headphones/dp/B00HVLUR54/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=m40x&qid=1586042772&sr=8-1 Ear pads: https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Cushion-earmuff-Brainwavz-Headphones/dp/B06Y262HJ6/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=hm5+angled+pads&qid=1586042839&sr=8-2 OR https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Philips-Replacement-Earpads-Headphones/dp/B00ZY8PGJI/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=hm5+angled+pads&qid=1586042854&sr=8-1 EDIT: If your going open back for the phillips and wait or go with a solid set of closed backs such as the status audio cb1s or m40x w/ pads. @doinurmop I play competitive CSGO and have never felt at a disadvantage with footsteps etc using my m40x with the angled pads they truly are a great all rounder. Do the m40x have the footstep sensitivity as my senn hd558's? No but they are damn good with the angled pads and like i said I never felt at a disadvantage.
  5. Yeah thats a great card for your system, good 1080p performance, I have one of them myself (Asus Dual rx 580 8gb). Also look for a second stick of memory or a new 2 x 8gb kit of memory for dual channel. Just be sure that the card is in good shape and wasn't used for bit coin mining etc be sure it works before you buy it if its used... Your going to want at least 500w but I would recommend a 600-650w PSU so if you plan on using it in a future build you can do so without having to upgrade your psu as well. Anything from a reputable company with at least an 80+ bronze rating should be alot better than what your using at the moment.
  6. Get both? You can find generic branded mousepads that are still really good for like 10-15$.
  7. Hence why I said "MAY" need to update his bios... I must have had a slightly older board when I upgraded my 560ti to the 1060 so going off my experience with similar aged hardware I thought I would mention that to OP sorry for sharing potentially needed information based off my own experience... If I was 100% certain that on a B250 mobo he would need to update his bios I would not have said "MAY" need to...
  8. I never said it was a limiting factor... I was telling OP that with that old of a system he MAY need to update his bios how is that statement not true? Seeing as when I upgraded a GPU on a similar system the bios needed to be updated... Not sure what your trying to get at here?
  9. Sorry ill rephrase that: go for any GPU you want but you may need to update the mobo bios to the newest version fyi.
  10. @Paul499 I wouldnt go with anything to new as you will probably have to flash the bios to the latest version to support any new GPU. I had this problem on a similar build to yours was upgrading the GTX 560ti 1GB card to a GTX 1060 and the bios needed to be flashed to even recognize the new GPU. If your only playing at 1080p and are not to worried about getting 250+ FPS in all your games I would look into a used GTX 970, GTX 1060 , RX 580 , RX 570. These can all be found for quite cheap on craigslist etc and will still crush 1080p games. Do that and get yourself 1 more stick of DDR3 so your running dual channel memory and you should have a great 1080p gaming rig.
  11. Agreed 100% Simple is usually better or maybe im just old school haha I agree with you about Valorant might be fun to play and better than overwatch etc but its just another complicated team based shooter with abilities etc etc.
  12. 1.6 & Source were hard for me to give up as well then my friend just said try out CSGO and well I hated it.... at first. Once you get used to the game a bit the nade use and other things are just much more fluid and natural if that makes sense. It took me a good 3-5 months until I was converted haha.
  13. @TheBritishVillain I have over 3000 hours in CSGO and over 4-5000Hours if you include CS 1.6 Source etc etc. Ill answer this first: "CS:GO more than other FPS games like Overwatch and Call of Duty rely more on 'shooting' with accuracy, because in those other games, other tactics can be used for winning a 1v1 situation like rushing, drop-shots, splash damage etc, whereas in CS:GO, your health is so low, if you miss your shots in a 1v1 situation, you are more than likely to lose so it rewards good aim. COUNTER ARGUMENT: CS:GO is quite linear and clearly rewards mouse skill, but lacks reward for any other type of skills. For example, Rainbow Six Siege highly rewards accuracy too, but also rewards you more for positioning, team work, map knowledge etc, so in theory has a higher skill-cap and in theory, is better in every way but is less popular. " There is actually a lot to the movement of CSGO that many have no clue about which is what separates players imo, It requires you to hold certain angles to gain advantage, crosshair placement recoil control etc etc. its just not as "sneaky" as a game like Rainbox six so it appears to be a run and aim type of game which sometimes it can be but at the same time to master those "basics" takes years. CSGO is like golf for me sure its not to hard to go wack a ball around a course but good luck ever having a perfect game of golf there's always something to improve upon. The thing that is addicting for me is the competitive nature of it, I have played team sports and race downhill mountain bikes so the adrenaline rush I get when playing CSGO can sometimes be comparable in a close league match. I almost refuse to play in the matchmaking servers the game provides because they are usually full of people not wanting to play seriously which ruins the game because the game really depends on you working as a team and communicating certain call outs etc If played on ESEA, Faceit or in a League/Lan with the same team of 5 people the game can be immensely exciting. Having your teammate throw that perfect flash or have set plays for taking a bomb site can be fun to come up with and then the game becomes alot more of a mental game against the other team trying to out smart or fake each other out. In the low ranks this just does not happen its always rush here rush there which is fine for casual play but isn't all that "fun or exciting" Also in my opinion the other FPS games on the market right now overwatch, pubg, Rainbox 6 etc just have to many other variables (ultimate attacks, different heros etc etc). I like the simplicity of CSGO and how even the game starts out there's no character advantage or someone having a better load out than you because they paid more money or unlocked more gear. EDIT: The console question: Because FPS games are horrible to aim with a joy stick and CSGO is the worst thing iv ever played on a console FPS wise.
