  1. Moving to Uni next year. Getting a list of things, I need for class and living near Uni. On the Tech side of things, I am after new peripherals. A list of stuff I need is as follows; - Monitor 27’ or larger, 2560x1440p or bigger, ASUS, AOC, LG, Samsung or ViewSonic brands preferable. - Mouse Larger Build with right-handed ergonomics, Logitech (Gaming series or MX Master), Razer, Corsair or SteelSeries Preferable, Wireless. - Keyboard Mechanical and Wireless (If possible), Tactile switches or Linear (similar to MX Red and brown switches) - Speakers Multiple Speakers with Subwoofer, Audiophile or Logitech brands preferable. - Headset/Headphone and Mic Combo. Wireless Headset (Audiophile brands like Audio-Technica, or Gaming Brands), or Antlion ModMic Wireless to add to my M50X wireless. - USB-C Hub Need 2, one with a thunderbolt 3 pass through and one normal hub (can be USB-A) Let me know what you recommend please… Cheers… Professor G.
  2. However remember, you still need to buy a W10 license key.
  3. Ok. Yes you can install windows on any drive type that has a capacity bigger then 16GB. Generally the best way to install Windows 10 is off a USB drive either from Microsoft or one you make with the Media Creation Tool that MS provide - https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10 When you go to install, before you power the system on make sure that the drive you want to install on is the only one plugged in. The drive and your bios should fill in the gaps and open Windows 10 Installation. Then it's just a matter of following the prompts.
  4. Both the LG models are fine. It just depends on what size you want in the end. The LG panels are good quality and are reliable as well. I have yet to have any hands on experience with the MSI model and no one I know has either. That Last model I have never even heard of but after a little research, they fit into the cheap-ish monitor range. A little research of your own on this brand might yield better results then what others could suggest. Hope This Helps... Cheers. Professor G
  5. I generally think the ATH-M50X from Audio Technica.
  6. A powerful Laptop I'd recommend is the Razer Blade Stealth. If you can afford the bigger Razer Blade Pro I would go with that route.
  7. Most E-GPU setups use Thunderbolt 3 for its connection. I recommend a Razer Core X. I use one for my 1080ti and it works dreams. I can play most modern AAA titles at ultra settings. However, I also recommend when using it to have your pc plugged into the wall.
  8. I was going to run 2 to each room, one for the access point and 1 for the switch. or if I did routers following this tutorial https://www.savjee.be/2012/10/creating-one-WiFi-network-with-multiple-access-points/. 1 for a router ( wifi and ethernet for secondary devices like Xbox, server, and others) and 1 for a direct connect to the main router using the main device aka my PC.
  9. I'm in the market for a network upgrade and this is what I need. I am wiring 2 rooms up for ethernet access and I want both wireless and up to 4 ethernet ports in each room. Would it be easier to just get 2 router's and set them up separately for wireless or would it be better to get something like Ubiquiti AP's and a switch for ethernet? If I do go with the AP's I will need 3 of them as I live in a 2 story house and my budget under $1000 AUD.
  10. I recommend Audio Technica ATH-E40 Professional In-Ear Headphones... Here is a link https://www.pccasegear.com/products/38037/audio-technica-ath-e40-professional-in-ear-headphones
  11. Well, I'm out of ideas. Sorry I couldn't help.
  12. On Octane Studios,website their approved workstations have Quadro's, so their brand preference seems to be Nvidia, so if you can afford either a RTX 2070, that would probably work quite well. Otherwise try and pick up a second hand 1080 or 1080ti. When I do rendering my 1080ti handles quite well. Hope this helps.
  13. Most of the answers that are on google are fixes that you have already done. I would try to go to Microsoft Tech Support into the Live Chat so you can troubleshoot this together. They are generally good with that. It might just be a glitch in your copy of windows. If you can back up your stuff try reinstalling either the copy you have or an OEM/Standard Windows build. If you can't use the sfc /scanow command in cmd admin. That will check for corrupt installation files in windows and fix them. Maybe that will help.
  14. You can in some cases. Blu-ray Standard carries 1080p at 60hz media with both or either a DTS and/or Dolby Digital/Atmos sound certification for 5.1 surround sound and in some rare cases (Blu ray copies of all the Star Wars Movies) 6.1 or 7.1/7.2 surround sound DVD, however, is only 480p and only some come with Dolby Digital or THX mastered 5.1 Surround Sound. Streaming is obviously a little convenient but it is mostly stereo Sound and depending on the internet connection comes in various qualities. 4KHD has the benefit of being 4K and the rest is the same as Blu-ray. The use case that I have is I dock my Razer Blade Pro to a Razer Core and from that to an HTR-3065 by Yamaha for 5.1 surround sound from my pc. I have the media on Blu Ray out of an external Blu Ray player. I also use that player to convert Blu Ray's to digital copies that have 5.1 surround sound the foreign language subtitles to store on my personal Plex Server which can handle those high-quality Blu Ray files. Not all Laptop screens are even 1080p, a lot of them are 1366x768. And you have external monitors that can handle the display quality of Blu Ray content. You can also use blank Blu-ray disc to store files as they are can store upwards of 25GB.
  15. From what I know about the Optiplex, they use proprietary/non-standard power supplies. I am also not sure whether they have the standard pcie slot for the gpu. Here is a video I found on disassembling it. Hope it Helps.
