  1. I actually couldn't find any models below $150. I should also note I'm in Canada, so that will limit pricing and availability.
  2. OK perhaps I should have set a price range, preferably something under $150 not $5000.
  3. I need to find a headset that is durable, especially in the headband. My co-worker's headset broke and she needs to request a new one, but she's suggesting a cheap $40 headset that I can tell by looking at it that it will snap within a matter of months. My co-worker has cerebral palsy, so she has limited movement with her arms, but can manage to get it on and off herself. The only issue is she sometimes stretches the headband farther than it needs to be, or she might drop it by accident. This is what most likely caused the breakage in the old one. The only thing she's needs in a mic is that it can be moved around freely. I myself use the HyperX Cloud 2, and they seem relatively durable, but I've never taxed the headband much by opening it as far as it would go and I don't know what i actually inside the headband whether it's metal all the way through, cheap plastic, etc. Any ideas?
  4. I guess I could, I might end up doing that. Just don't like the idea of more wires. When I get some money I'm thinking of buying a Roku TV. either way, thanks for the help.
  5. TV is old, has an HDMI port. Reason I want to stream is for comfort really. I can stream movies to it, and instead of laying back in a computer chair I can just sit back in a comfy reclining lounger. Same thing for headphones and controller. Sit back and play emulators.
  6. Ah didn't know that, never owned one. Would a chromecast be the simplest way to stream to a TV at this point? I have a raspberri Pi sitting around, but then I would assume I'd need an actual wireless adapter. So I guess it comes down to whats cheaper, Wifi card or a chromecast.
  7. Damn right I forgot about bluetooth. Yes I have ethernet it's more for wireless peripherals. What do you think of this: https://www.amazon.ca/WISE-TIGER-3000Mbps-802-11AX-Bluetooth/dp/B083LZWGLZ/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=ax200&qid=1592239972&sr=8-7
  8. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01IEU7UZ0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I'm stuck between a PCI-E and a USB wifi adapter and I can't decide. I've read guides saying USB adapters aren't as strong as they typically don't have antennas. But this one I found does. anyone have any opinions? Here's what I'll be using wifi for: Headphones Gamepad Steaming to another device such as a chromecast Or if anyone has opinions on a PCI-E card I'd appeciate it as well.
  9. Can anyone recommend a comfortable "VR" headset for phones? All the one's I've tried really hurt my nose. The only reason I want one is to watch movies. I don't have a TV, and my computer chair isn't the most comfortable thing for relaxing and watching a movie. So I figure, get one of these things and I can lay down in bed to watch a movie.
  10. Ya sorry I know, I was actually looking at a review of the 3000G. When I say productivity, I mean office work. But like I said, he has an interest in graphic design. Wii U is a bit of a strentch, but it looks like Wii and down should be good! This will save a bit. But think it's any good for graphic design?
  11. Mostly for productivity, MAYBE emulators, hes not a big gamer. At this price range can't do much. I know he is also into graphic design. See above. Also he does sort of need the storage, he wants more, atleast a 2TB drive.
  12. So my room mate's PC is on it's way out and I offered to make him a new PC. His price range is $400-$500 Canadian. This is what I've come up with: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 3 3200G 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor $124.50 @ shopRBC Motherboard Gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $76.50 @ Vuugo Memory Patriot Viper Elite 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory $49.99 @ Amazon Canada Storage Team MS30 128 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive $37.99 @ Newegg Canada Storage Western Digital Blue 2 TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive $74.99 @ Canada Computers Case Deepcool MATREXX 30 MicroATX Mini Tower Case $49.99 @ Newegg Canada Power Supply EVGA 500 W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply $64.90 @ Vuugo Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $478.86 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-05-01 21:12 EDT-0400 Any suggestions?
  13. Just gaming, no video editing. I guess I'm basically good for as long time then.
  14. Current build: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/YJg3vW Am I able to improve it at all? Without whatever I get being only a slight upgrade? Ie. a 2080 TI would be awsome, but do I need it? no. I was thinking of turning it into an ITX system, but I'd need a new case, MB, CPU cooler, and possibly PSU if the cast couldn't take it.
