  2. MSI Trident 3

    I looked into the Trident 3 Arctic for it's tiny 4.7L case w/ a 1070 but what stopped me is that upgrading is limited. The systems uses a MSI proprietary H110 board and even the upgraded 330 watt PSU (which you can buy off EBAY) is pretty meager even for a 1070. The power supplies alone are $250 At CES they announced they would be refreshing the Trident 3 Arctic with a 8th gen and available, but board is probably still proprietary Really when you get this small finding prebuilts that are crazy exspensive, loud, overly hot, and can be upgraded is very slim The Digital Storm Project Spark looks promising but looks like it costs a pretty penny Same with anything from Origin Zotact Mek1 looks cool even with a 7700
  3. External Gpu for Desktop

    If he has a ThinkCentre gaming or using a dedicated GPU was probably never the desire. But the bigger question is why do you need a dedicated GPU now? With an EGPU you probably will want to go with an enclosure which can range from $300-$500 to start and then you want at least a GTX 1060 or probably 1070 to make it worth while since with a TB3 there is loss of performance. Even if you magically found a 1070 for $400 that's $700-$900 already on a setup that just isn't comparable to a full on desktop. Even with the GPU crisis building a rig or finding a prebuilt with a graphics card is a better value and better for future upgrades.
  4. i5 8400 vs i7 8700

    Well couple things to keep in mind. Intel will probably force everyone to the Z390 board with the 9700 which means if you already bought a Z370 board just another thing to buy, so IMO just wait for get an 8700K. Secondly the difference in price between a 8700 and 8700K is minimal, at the time of purchase for me it was $30. Even if you don't overclock the higher clock speeds and resale value of a K model are well worth it.
  5. buying gpu in usa

    just remember to bring receipts for tax purposes and be aware they might swab some parts or ask for you to open the box. I would carry them on since I have seen security/customs tear through checked backs ruining a lot of things
  6. I had this card and they did have an issue with VRM overheating. EVGA fixed this with a new BIOS and thermal pads but I think the reputation of the card took a huge hit. My card never had these issues but resale right after I bought it wasn't good, but now with huge spikes in mining I think people could care less. I thought it was a good card albeit the cooling could have been better since my card would always be at 80 degrees when gaming even with a full fan curve, however my case at the time had horrible airflow so maybe in a better case you would see 2-3 degrees less?
  7. GTX 1080Ti Water Temps

    Yes
  8. Are graphic card pre-orders a thing?

    Very true, in December when currencies were low I was able to get a EVGA GTX 1080 SC ACX 3.0 for $545 shipped on NewEgg, now that same card even through EVGA (when in stock) is $600+ and on NewEgg it is $850. I think in April or whenever new cards come out or launched Pascal cards will take a hit in scalped prices and the used card market will be flooded, however if your looking to get a next gen card sometime this year we all better hope currencies tank in the meantime All and all I can't complain too much since throughout all this I have been riding the wave by selling my existing card and upgrading when I could find a card for near MSRP. Nov 17 sold Gigabyte G1 gaming 1070 $360 and bought a EVGA 1080 SC ACX 3.0 for $545. Jan 2018 sold my 1080 for $650 and bought a EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid for $840
  9. Need help buying a controller for PC

    I would go with an Xbox One Controller. Tons of colors to choose from, you can you it via the USB dongle or Bluetooth. Plus if you already have an XBOX you don't have to buy one
  10. Looking for a cpu

    It was on craigslist but the cheapest "buy it now" on Ebay is $250, but yeah it was kind of a no brainer to sell and upgrade to an 8700K even when I had to buy a Z370 board. Honestly gaming wise very little difference in performance going to 8700K, but nice to have those extra cores for others tasks
  11. Looking for a cpu

    Yeah 6700K has held their value well. Sold mine recently for almost $300 which is weird since I took that money and bought a new 8700K for $320
