  1. Just a lol build

    Seems fine, I'd definitely make sure that your i5 works with H81 and isn't one of the haswell refresh cpus that require a bios update first. I haven't researched 1150 a ton, but if they still sell new boards in your price range, go with it.
  2. Who should take my Linux-ginity?

    Ubuntu is very popular and probably the easiest to learn/use with a ton of community support. I'd start there.

    Alright, in that case you should be slightly safer. Just definitely look it up to be sure. Happy to help!

    Also, you said in your original post that it's a lga 1150, and in your comment that its a 1151. Make sure you check the processor (the model should be clearly printed on the front of the chip) to make sure you get a compatible motherboard. Skylake, Kaby Lake, and Coffee Lake are all technically LGA 1151 but aren't usually cross compatible except in some cases with bios updates, etc.

    Technically they could, but I would try your i5 in a new motherboard first since if it is still working then an i5 will be a lot better performance. I'd check eBay for motherboards if you want to go cheap. Just make sure it fits in your case. A micro atx motherboard should be fine and you can find them for ~50-100 USD not sure what that is in £. Only other thing you'd need that you don't have listed is a hard drive.

    I'm confused, if you have all of that then you're just looking for a cheap motherboard correct? What is this about celerons?
  7. Future Upgrades?

    Honestly 16gb of ram and a gtx 1080 are more than adequate for most uses by today's standards. Sure, you could add more RAM if you really want to but I personally have never had 100% RAM usage with my 16gb. And unless you're trying to get 4K 144hz gaming your 1080 will be great for pretty much anything you throw at it, and the 1080 Ti is a huge jump in price.

    Update: Here is what I would consider a "pretty good" ~$1000 build, giving you a little space to get a windows license somewhere, and assuming you're not picky on the case.

    Also the case is currently one of your larger expenses.. if you can take that down it would help a lot.

    1060 should be fine for 1080p 60hz. I have a 1060 and easily get enough frames in pretty much every game I've tried.
  12. Building a PC for a friend

    I agree I'd try to opt for 2x4gb sticks or higher speed in general. Otherwise looks pretty good. Also wow graphics cards are really expensive right now.
  13. Graphics Card Opinions Needed!

    Thanks for all the opinions guys! So it seems most people think I should go with either a 1070 Ti or 1080. I'll probably see what is the best deal and go with that. Any opinions on brand/cooler style? I definitely won't be going with the single fan again even though it was cheapest.
  14. Graphics Card Opinions Needed!

    I also should mention that one of my main reasons for wanting to upgrade is that my current card seems to sit at 82 degrees C under load which seems really high for a 1060.. It is the single fan model which makes sense so I was looking to upgrade to one that has a better cooler. Brand preference opinions will also be taken into account.
  15. Graphics Card Opinions Needed!

    Hey guys, so I've been very torn lately because I currently have a 1060 3GB and it's just not really cutting it for my purposes. I have a 144hz 1080p monitor and while this card can put up frames well above that for esports gaming it struggles in others that I play such as Overwatch, PUBG, etc. where I don't really want to play on lowest settings just to get better frames. I'm considering upgrading over the holiday season but can't decide what is my best option. With the recent release of the 1070 ti this also makes my decision more difficult. As I see it, here are my options: - Upgrade to a 1060 6GB (Not sure if the minimal upgrade is good enough) - 1070 - 1070 Ti - 1080 - Wait for Volta GPUs (next year) What do you guys think I should do for 1080p 144fps+? I appreciate any input.
