    Hs60 vs. Hs70

    Hello all, I'm looking to get a headset and wondering which would be a good choice. In terms of budget, I want to stay below $90. The only reason why I want to stay with Corsair, is because nearly all my peripherals are Corsair and they have treated me well (except for my headset). My current headset is the Corsair Void RGB wireless and it's having charging/ quality issues (ear cushion came off, the mic arm broke, and the headset keeps shutting off, while it's plugged in). Choices: HS60- 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound - Wired - $50 USD. HS70- 7.1 Surround Sound - Wireless - $80 USD. Now, I understand that I'm comparing a wireless headset to a wired and the price difference is huge. From your personal experience, which is the better choice? Which has better sound quality and which will be better for the future (in terms of reliability and headset life). *If you have any of headsets to recommend, please comment below! Thank you!
  2. Honestly, I'm not looking to upgrade for a while. I was looking for performance, while not breaking the bank completely. Also, the reason for the overkill mobo's are the looks and the m.2 slots. I think the 3700x is great, but I built an i9-9900kf build for similar pricing. I guess it depends on when the time comes to decide. I'm going with 32gb, just to make the build that much more interesting. Also, I'm not looking to get another amd gpu, as they disappointed me in the past. I like the build list, through I don't like have two ram sticks. That's just a personal thing. Also, not going with amd for the gpu this time. Amd has let me down in the past in terms of gpu performance. I might stick with Nvidia and I'm still deciding on whether I want amd or intel. I decided to take out my EVGA Supernova 1000 G2 from my previous pc, unless someone buys the whole pc. I would like something with a rgb fan, but I'm not sure if Thermaltake's PSU's are any good.
  3. Hello all, I wanted to ask the forums what would be the ideal build for my gaming needs. Currently, I'm on a 1080p monitor and will go to a 144hz monitor. I play games such as L4D2, Beamng Drive, Six Siege, GTA 5, Project Cars 2, F1 2019, BF1, BF3, BF4, BF5, FSX, Gmod, City Skylines, and CSGO. My budget is around $1700. Here are my potential builds: AMD: Ryzen 3700x, RTX 2060 Super OR used GTX 1070, 32 gb DDr4 NEO Trident Z rgb ram, Gigabyte x570 ultra mobo. Intel: Intel I7-9700k, RTX 2060 super or used GTX 1070, 32 gb ddr4 Trident Z rgb ram, Gigabyte Z390 ultra mobo. Note, the reason I put the used GTX 1070 is because my current laptop has the Max-Q version, which is able to play nearly all my games at 144hz and nearly maxed out. Now, I can get a used 1070 for around $230 usd. Would it be wise to go with the RTX 2060 super or GTX 1070 for my needs? Also, I understand that the 3700x beat the i7-9700k is certain things, but will it be good enough for gaming? This is me coming from an i5-4690k and AMD R9-390x. Thank you all!
  4. Hello all! I need some help choosing some parts. I currently play GTA 5, Project cars 2, Forza Horizon 4, BF1,3,4,5, Six Siege, SC2, L4D2, CSGO, and Flight sim. Here are the parts I'm deciding on: GPU: RTX 2070 vs RTX 2060 Super vs used GTX 1070 (I'm seeing them for around $200 on craigslist. The reason why I put this is because my laptop has a 1070 Max-Q and it runs pretty much all my games at 144hz on high.) CPU: Ryzen 3700x vs Ryzen 3800x vs i7-9700K I know these have minor to medium price differences, but I need a good upgrade this time. I'm still on my first build, which has an r9-390x and an i5-4690k. It's just too slow now. Yes, the games are on ssd's. I plan on getting a 144hz monitor or a free sync monitor. Other parts are already decided. Thanks for the input!
  5. Hello all! I currently have an Asus Zephyrus S GX531 Gs. I currently have one. 512gb ssd. I plan on replacing it with a 1tb m.2 ssd, will I need to reinstall the operation system? I actually upgraded to Windows 10 pro a while back and wondering if I would have to re-purchase or enter the cd- key again? Thanks!
  6. Hello all! I'm tied between the Corsair Crystal 570X White RGB or the Lian LI PC-001 Dynamic White. I understand they are different configurations, but which would be better? I like the way they both look, though here is the issue: Corsair: Doesn't support a 360mm radiator at the top. Would putting it on the front intake cause the case to run hot? I see a lot of people putting a 360 radiator in the front, I was worried about thermals. LI PC-001: Doesn't look as good and doesn't have the upgradability as the 570x. Can I get your thoughts? Some pros and cons of both cases? Edit: I will do future liquid cooling, but for the time sake, I will keep my aio. Thanks, Loch
  7. Ah, didn't think of that. I guess if I see a warranty sticker, it's a big no lol. I mean, come on... who tf uses only 512gbs?
  8. I tried, they're closed until tomorrow. It has 8GBs soldered in and another 8GB stick available for a swap. Also, the M.2 is swappable.
  9. Hello, I recently purchased an ROG Zephyrus S GX531GS-ah76 and I was wondering if it would void my warranty if I open the laptop up to upgrade the ram and ssd. I asked on the Asus ROG forums and no one has answered. Anyone got any info? PS, I live in the US in terms of warranty laws. Thanks!
  10. Budget is $2000 usd, max weight around 5lbs, and battery life isn't too important. I won't be gaming off the charger.
  11. I was looking at the msi gs65, only issue is that I can't find a gs65 with either a 1tb pcie ssd or a rtx 2070.
  12. Hello everyone! I'm stuck between two laptops. I'm not looking for a super-dooper laptop to play games like BF5 or Forza. I want something I can bring around and occasionally play games like Apex Legends or others... I'm also a student in need of a lighter laptop, as I have a G750Jm and it's a brick.I understand that I'm comparing a gaming laptop to a non gaming laptop, but what is the better choice? I've seen the 4k screen in person and it's pretty amazing, but the Rgb on the Scar 2 is just super cool to look at. Which one would you all prefer and why? Here are two laptops I've narrowed down to: Dell XPS 15 9750: 32 GB of DDR4, i7 8750h, GTX 1050ti, 1tb PCI-E ssd, 4K touch screen. Asus Strix Scar 2: 16 GB of DDR4, i7 8750h, RTX 2070, 512 PCI-E SSD, 144hz Non-touch screen. Thanks!
