  1. what's the best monitor for gaming and productivity?

    Unfortunately no 4k ultrawide yet. The 4k high refresh rate monitors are super expensive. I would recommend a 3440 x 1440 100hz ips monitor for your situation.
  2. I was thinking of getting one of the two cases listed above. Right now, the Define C is $36 more expensive ($155 instead of $119) and I would like advice on which I should go for. Thanks in advance.
  3. A good monitor with Gsync with no dead pixels?

    All high end monitors have a chance of being faulty. I don't think there is any brand in particular that is better than the others when it comes to this.
  4. Difference between 1600 x and 1600

    Also 1600 comes with a decent stock cooler while 1600x doesn't
  5. Best CPU for GTX 1060

    That is a cpu intensive game, so the cpu is probs the bottleneck, even at 1440p. For that resolution, you could probably get away with a ryzen 5 2400g or i3 8100, but if you wanted to futureproof you could get a ryzen 2600 or i5 8400.
  6. 5GHz AC -62 dBm vs 2.4GHz AC -50 dBm

    Alright, thanks
  7. Best CPU for GTX 1060

    What game are you playing?
  8. 5GHz AC -62 dBm vs 2.4GHz AC -50 dBm

    Would -62 dBm on 5GHz AC be better for online gaming instead of -50 dBm on 2.4GHz AC. My three other roommates all use the 2.4GHz band and not the 5GHz as none of them have a desktop pc.
  9. Best 240Hz Monitors

    Alright, thanks for the above info. I doubt I will get a 240hz monitor now, given that all of them are TN.
  10. Best 240Hz Monitors

    Just a quick and simple question. Do all the 240Hz monitors use the same panel, or are some higher quality than others? Just trying to find out whether the expensive ones actually have something over the cheaper ones (that isn't adaptive sync or motion blur technology).
  11. Case Compatability

    Both of those would be fine for the case and are both pretty reliable. However, the TX750M is considered slightly more reliable and it is covered by a longer warranty. One more thing is, the TX750M is gold not platinum rated.
  12. ASUS PCE-AC88 not working

    Alright thanks.
  13. ASUS PCE-AC88 not working

    No, I didn't think it would be necessary for it to work.
  14. Team Blue assistance needed; i3 8100?

    The i3 8100 beats the ryzen 3 2200G by about 10-20% at 1080p
  15. ASUS PCE-AC88 not working

    Recent bought a new Wifi card as my old one was outdated and only supported 2.4GHz. However, my new one is not being recognised by the motherboard. My old one, TP-LINK 300N, worked fine in the same slot and I have not changed anything apart from the Wifi card. My motherboard is an ASUS B350-F and I attempted to put the wifi card in the lower of the three PCI-E x1 slots, the same one I put my original Wifi card in. Thanks!
