  1. $400 Budget - Any Ideas?

    Can you only use Amazon and Newegg? I'd opt for a G4560 unless you're willing to spend a bit more for a Ryzen 3 + B350 motherboard. Don't go A320. It's tough, but try and get at least 8 GB of memory. The 500 GB hard drive is not a bad starting point, but 1 TB is as cheap as $8 more. It's worth it. For an extra dollar, you can get pick up a much better power supply (Seasonic S12II). I found a new OEM RX 560 on eBay that will perform better than the GT 1030.

  2. FreeSync AND VSync?

    Not really, no. The point of Freesync is to stop screen tearing without adding any additional input lag & without locking your frame rate to 60, 30, etc. If you use Vsync, it negates the purpose of Freesync because it locks your frame rate and increases input lag. Keep Freesync on, Vsync off, and limit your frame rate to 1 FPS lower than the peak of your Freesync range for optimal adaptive sync settings
  3. I remember when many claimed that this console would drive Nintendo into the ground. In hindsight, Nintendo exclusives (including the critically acclaimed BotW & Mario Odyssey) + family/entertainment system + portability for $299 is a deadly combo. Now that other AAA titles such as Doom and Wolfenstein are coming to the console too, it looks like they have a real winner on their hands.
  4. Buy faster ram or no?

    It definitely does, but people generally use that in context with DDR4, Ryzen, and Intel's 6th gen and beyond processors. There are some niche cases, such as in Fallout 4, where DDR3 RAM speed can make a significant difference. Of course, jumping from 1333 to 2400 will reap large benefits. I'm not entirely sure how great the scaling is though.
  5. Buy faster ram or no?

    Short answer: no. Long answer: nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo You'd see such small benefits that it's not worth the time and money.
  6. I say build now. I don't think RAM prices will change much between now and when B360 boards arrive. You have a confirmed upgrade path until 2020, and the Ryzen 3 1200 offers great value for the price. It was just $79 earlier today.
  7. AIO w/ a 240 mm rad for the price of a budget aftermarket cooler. I usually never impulse buy products, but I'll make an exception here
  8. Building a PC for a grand or maybe more...

    That's the price of a GTX 1080. As long as they didn't use it as a hammer, it's a fantastic price with fantastic performance
  9. Yep. This is the mentality you need. Start making videos because you want to and go from there.
  10. Well of course. They won't offer potential ad revenue to someone without any credentials.
  11. Minus the viewing and subscription requirements, you could lie about your age (I do not recommend) Use adsense through your parent's email Use an agency/network such as Fullscreen - the minimum age is 13 for Fullscreen specifically Clearly, I think highly of the second & third bullet and not the first . If they find out about your age, your account will be terminated. It's happened to me before unfortunately (I was also really stupid about keeping it low-key). Besides that, you need build some internet rapport and meet those statistics before applying to a network or Google Adsense. So grab that camera/mic and get to recording! Good luck!
  12. Show off your setup!

    Finally got to cleaning my dorm room.
  13. Why did it take me so long to figure out ur the guy from the youtube channel? lol

  14. Just ordered a custom water cooling loop for $87. Should be here by Christmas.

    3. Max_Settings


      I apologize now for you loss when it doesn't work xD

      Haha it's only the CPU (though adding a GPU block would only make it $20 more or so) - but lots of research and time to pick out the components. It's an experiment to see if it works or not. I'll definitely report back.
