  1. thanks for the reply but I was wondering if you could recommend a more android specific controller
  2. can someone recommend a joypad for me? It would be nice if it was compatible with both note 10+ and note 9. I use it to play emulators. Will be using it to play street fighter 2 and other emulated stuff.
  3. just cuz i am bored, here is the reason why you should get a quality ram. It helps with frametime. Frametime is the measure of frame consistency. So having a faster ram allows you to display fps more consistently on a more evenly spread interval.
  4. 3200 at minimum. Usually 3400 is the sweet spot between performance and price
  5. thanks for such a polite remark! But ram speeds do matter. Linus' videos can sometimes be a bit misguided. Hopefully, Anthony can do a better video. I think Linus' videos are sometimes geared towards more casual gamers so he shuns away from concepts like frametime. So many people fail to understand the difference between fps and frametime. I used to own a i7 3770k just a couple of months ago. I was initially on 16gb of 1333mhz and I upgraded to 2400mhz ram. The difference was day and night. Games ran much more smoothly and framedips did not occur as often. interestingly, the "fps" was pretty much the same. Don't trust the fps counters because they only tell the partial truth.
  6. noctua l9i is quiet but it sux at cooling. Give that one a pass. I think there is a thicker version of that which performs much better.
  7. just as a general guideline, your dac should equal the cost of your headset. So for instance, if the dac is $200, expect to pay $200 for your headphone as well. However, if you are not keen on going the entry audiophile route, you should just get "fun sounds" from any gaming device manufacturer. If this is the case, any dac will do. I think you should go for those 7.1 surround sound. TBH, in terms of gaming, I prefer fun sounds over accurate ones. Games werent designed with audiophiles in mind so the sound can be a bit underwhelming at times. All in all, my recommendation to you is, if you got 400usd to waste, come experiment. At least your music collection will sound much more pleasing. And plus, while I do prefer fun sounds during gaming session, accurate sounds are not horrible by any means.
  8. yup always a good advice J. But going a step further, you want the dac to be completely removed from the system, as in usb dac. This will create the best sound. Even PCIe is too close to electrical interference. I suggest the audio engine d1. I have this and it is decent.
  9. it does matter and you should get a 2400 kit. It stabilizes frametime.
