  1. A friend is asking for a gaming laptop that's less than or equal to $700 and can run Overwatch. I'm just starting to get into computers, but from what I know - that's not too easy to find for a laptop. These are the ones I've been looking into right now: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16834235081?item=N82E16834235081&source=region&nm_mc=knc-googleadwords-pc&cm_mmc=knc-googleadwords-pc-_-pla-_-gaming+laptops-_-N82E16834235081&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5r77qOnx4wIVDp-fCh3TkgReEAQYASABEgJ12fD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16834235236?reviews=all https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Gaming-i5-7300HQ-GeForce-AN515-51-55WL/dp/B074Q54GSR https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C715KNT/ref=psdc_13896615011_t1_B074Q54GSR Aside from their gaming capability, I've read that the Asus 504's have a dim screen and I honestly feel like that the front looks pretty tacky. Friend asked for a decent battery life and weight is always something to keep in mind, but I'm sure there is a higher priority on price - to - gaming capability. Any thoughts or recommendations?
  2. I ended up just loosening the screw that holds the card in place. It makes the card drop down slightly and then I screwed it in a little more while holding it in place. That seemed to do the trick lol
  3. I'm probably going to give that a shot tonight then lol. If I still hear contact, then I'll probably just buy a riser cable. I found a pretty cheap one right here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B0067WZH2Q/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new Correct me if I'm wrong, but the other end of this riser cable is supposed to connect to my power supply right? I just use a SATA cable correct? This is my first pc build so there's a lot I still don't know.
  4. What did you use as a spacer? It sounds like it's barely skimming the gpu fan, so anything small would work. I was thinking of laying a piece of cardboard flat on top of the wireless card, since they're remotely thin but still resist compression to a certain extent.
  5. I was thinking about that too. My only concern was about damaging the ports or the wireless card. Whatever I used a spacer would probably cause the wireless card bend downwards slightly. I was wondering what the chances were of that minute bend damaging the port or the wireless card. Do you think it's worth just getting a pcie riser cable, or just trying to use something small as a spacer?
  6. So I moved the wireless card down just now, but there’s a problem. This gpu is so goddamn big that the bottom of the wireless card ( which is facing up) is skimming the gpu’s fan (which is facing down). The fan still runs, but clearly it’s still a problem. Even though they’re barely skimming, it’s close enough that you hear the ticking sound you’d hear if you held something against an actual fan. Any advice?
  7. You’re a life saver. I’m new to pc building so I’ve been watching and mirroring everything the videos do. I had no clue I could just do that. You saved me a lot of stress and extra work lol. Appreciate it!
  8. Hey guys, I’m building a budget pc build and I need to install a wireless card. Problem is that the gpu I bought, a PowerColor Red Dragon Rx 570, takes up two slots. Since the PCIE slot for my wireless card is directly underneath the PCIE 16, I can’t fit both in. I’ve attached a photo showing what I mean. Even if I wanted to, I can’t 570 in the PCIEX4 because it’s still too big. Any recommendations for another GPU that’s comparable and takes up one slot? I’m running a Ryzen 5 1600 processor
  9. Hey guys, I ordered a case from DIY PC, it’s their Model X White RGB Case. The case came scratched, but I didn’t notice until a week later when I built the pc and took a closer look at the whole setup. I don’t know what the material of the front panel is so I don’t want to just get any scratch remover. I’ve attached a picture along with this post. Any recommendations or advice?
  10. I'm building my first pc soon, and I plan to run an ethernet cable since the wifi connection in my room is already pretty weak. (the router is on the first floor in the front of the house and my room is on the second floor in the back) My only problem is trying to wire the cable through the floors because directly above the router on the second floor is a heater, so I don't know if I should actually run the cable directly up; nor do I want to try and run the cable through the first floor directly under my room (too much stuff in the way). A lot of the articles I'm reading is saying that I need to run outdoor cables into the ground, 6-8 inches below soil. I was hoping to just run the cable outside and along walls towards my room and then drill a hole into my room from outside. Is the exposure to heat going to be a major problem like I'm reading online? Exposure to sunlight isn't a major issue because there is an overhang around the house in between the first and second floor outdoors (so that we could install lights for outside) and I was hoping to run the cables underneath the overhang. It does however, get hot in the summer; the temperature can go as high as the mid-to-high 90's sometimes here in Long Island. And if the heat IS a major problem, what can I do to solve that problem?
  11. Thanks for the advice, the Micro Center is pretty close and I've been there before, I just never knew they had their own deals (you learn something new every day) The SSD is got is pretty cheap, but that's because I only planned on using the SSD for Windows, so I figured 120 GB was more than enough. I may invest in a better SSD since this CPU+Motherboard deal drops my cost to essentially $510. Appreciate your help man.
  12. As someone who isn't knowledgeable on computers, I decided to get my build off of Bitwit's videos. He made a $500 budget "Console Killer" build a while back that I'm going to follow: CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Processor with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079D3DBNM/?coliid=I307BAVYKOJU3X&colid=14UD8Y1I60XR7&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it GPU: PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 570 4GB https://www.newegg.com/powercolor-radeon-rx-570-axrx-570-4gbd5-3dhd-oc/p/N82E16814131717?Item=N82E16814131717 Motherboard: ASRock MicroATX Motherboard (B450M-HDV) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FVKWLQK/?coliid=I2BGESMSL7Z9EA&colid=14UD8Y1I60XR7&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Ram: Team T-Force Night Hawk 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM 3200 (PC4 25600) https://www.newegg.com/team-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820331029?Item=N82E16820331029 HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16822179010?Item=N82E16822179010 SSD: Kingston A400 2.5" 120 GB https://www.newegg.com/kingston-a400-120gb/p/N82E16820242399?Item=N82E16820242399 Case: https://www.newegg.com/p/1W8-006X-00005?Item=1W8-006X-00005 Power Supply: Corsiar CX Series 450W 80 Plus Bronze Certified https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MTZ96RU/?coliid=I3GTU7EVFW70SH&colid=14UD8Y1I60XR7&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it I'm not a serious gamer on pc, but I want to be able to play games like Apex, Destiny and other online MMORPGS at the best quality possible with this budget. The reason I don't want to go too far past $500 is because I still need to buy Windows 10 (Should I really be trusting the offers for $30 off third-party sites? The retail $140 is expensive as hell) keyboard/mouse, a monitor and at least 30 ft of ethernet cable that can withstand the outdoors if I don't want to get a decent Wifi card that can reach my room upstairs. Is there anything I can downgrade slightly to get closer to a $500 build from the current $535 while not having to sacrifice too much? *Edit: Thanks for all the responses guys, I really appreciate your input!
  13. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-Desktop-Processor-Graphics/dp/B07Q3G3B67/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Dell+Inspiron+Gaming+PC+AMD+Ryzen&qid=1560729665&s=electronics&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sr=1-3 CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 8-core Processor at 4.1 GHz GPU: AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB GDDR5 Ram: 16 GB (2x8) DDR4 at 2400 MHz Storage: 1 TB HDD 7200 RPM Sata 6 GB/s OS: Windows 10 Power supply: 460 Watt Comes with a cheap keyboard and mouse (Dell MS116 Wired Mouse Black ; Dell KB216 Wired Keyboard English Black) I'm probably going to just replace the power supply for something that's 500+ Watt, but what I'm more focused on is the presence of Windows 10. I'm not tech-savvy or knowledgeable about desktops, but I get that you can generally build custom pc's for cheaper in comparison to pre-builts. But windows 10 cost $140 on its own, meaning the hardware here comes out to a cost of $460. Can you really price-match with a custom build if you also have to purchase windows 10?
  14. Thanks a lot, I appreciate all the advice you guys have been giving me.
