  1. I picked up a low profile Radeon 7450 for an arcade emulation box and while the card is functional I get a lot of Gpu sag having it in my case since it wasn't built for standard mid towers, does anyone have recommendations on bracket extentions/replacements?
  2. I keep hearing about the intellimouse, how is it performance wise? I don't use a mousepad half the time and if I do I just grab one of my magic the gathering playmats instead so I don't think it makes much of a difference haha.
  3. def has the colors I'm looking for but I don't know how I feel about the cheese grader aesthetic of it, I feel like having all that space for its rgb are too loud for a pc that's supposed to be a sleeper.
  4. So I'm in the middle of building a sleeper and I've already sourced a case, a keyboiard, a crt monitor and I'm going to paint the modern second monitor's shell a similar beige to have that 80s computer aesthetic. I am struggling to find a modern mouse that has the same color aesthetic that has 2000 dpi or higher, I was looking into older mice like the microsoft wheel optical mouse but at 400 dpi it didn't seem like it would be worth it. Any recommendations?
  5. That's why I mentioned modern-ish, the 900 series is def in the vein of what I'm looking for but realistically anything within the 750-950 line of cards will work with it, my friend Streamlord on twitter has a similar set-up for retro games using a gtx 545, but I don't want to have the gpu be a bottle neck depending on how much retroarch will need in the system, which is why I mentioned the GT 1030 in the original post since it's a pascal card with GDDR5 & a native VGA port. All active Analog to digital converters will introduce some amount of input delay which is what we're trying to avoid at all costs. It doesn't, but I'm more worried that introducing an Nvidia card along side it in the rig might cause power draw issues + it would give me better upgradability in the future for a better Ryzen like a 2600 and a proper cooler to be able to have it be stable at all times I don't plan on moving again but I had to lug my rig on a Greyhound when I got here, and the acryllic cracked and eventually broke because of the turbulence of the bus, However you may be right that it would now be better with an older case, would love to hear recommendations on any if you have some in mind.
  6. My channel is primarily retro game focused and while having a capture card and a crt is what I'm currently doing and the preferred method to stream Retro Content, I wanted to come up with a 1 system solution to not have any outside capture cards from the rig itself because having all 6-8 of my game consoles on the desk at once causes a lot of clutter overall. Here's what we're looking to do: Why a CRT monitor in 2020, you're going to have input delay with a modern gpu right?: _________________________________________________________________________________ What we're after for the second gpu is one with a Dvi-I input, DVI-I is an interlaced signal between DVI-D and DVI-A, and that DVi-A signal is 1 to 1 with VGA, so with a VGA to DVI-I adapter, we should Theoretically not get any lag in games whatsoever from the display. As for input lag, Emulation Hub RetroArch has introduced a new feature: Run Ahead Latency, with it you can set the Frames ahead of the input delay typically in an emulator (2 Frames ahead for SNES9X's 2 frames of natural input delay for example) to make the inputs virtually the same as on Console + CRT My Current Rig is this: __________________________________________________________________________ MOBO: Gigabyte GA-AB35J0M-HD3 CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor, 3200 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s) Cooler: Stock RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8.00 GB DDR4 @ 2833 MHZ HDD: 1TB WD Blue @7200 RPM GPU: GIGABYTE Radeon RX 550 DirectX 12 GV-RX550D5-2GD REV 2.0 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x8 ATX Video Card PSU: EVGA 500 BR, 80+ Bronze 500W Case: Cooler Master Master Box 5 [Partially Broken (acryllic side panel is broken)] _________________________________________________________________________ Peripherals: Red Dragon M601 Gaming Mouse Blackweb Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Broken) BenQ XL2411 144HZ 1Ms Monitor [Bottom of the screen is all dead pixels] LCD TV as a second monitor (Broken) Logitech G430 Headset Official Wii U Gamecube Adapter (GCN to USB) _________________________________________________________________________ What we Need to Find: * A New Case with Better airflow: While I love the MB5, after it was damaged in transport when I moved it made me realize how flimsy some parts of the case are overall, we're looking for something that's a similar size with standard threading, but has a better build quality. This one from NZXT seems like it has a lot more air flow overall. *A Mic + Arm Combo for Streaming: After having this headset break and for me to take streaming more seriously I think investing in an actual microphone setup at this point is crucial. currently looking at this one by FiFine, who were featured in Linus' Microphone round up as the best entry level mic, and they might still be the best value here. *A Second Gpu with VGA or DVi-I that is modern-ish: We're looking for something DDR4 or Better here, right now I have my eyes on this zotac 1030 gt, which has a native VGA port, DDR5 and runs on the pascal architecture. * A New 144Hz 1MS Monitor for when we play more modern titles: Simple Enough, looking for the best bang for the buck monitor here that let's us play more modern e-sports titles like League, Overwatch, Cs:Go etc. This one from Acer looks good, but there are probably better options. * A B450 Motherboard: That old B350 Mobo is probably holding the rig back in general, with only 2 Dim Slots for Ram we're stuck at our 8gbs of Ram, and that's not good as a content creator, I think this b450 tomahawk looks pretty solid, but I want more input to see if there's a better value for what we need * A Better Power Supply: That 500W Mustard and Ketchup PSU is still good, but it might not have enough power to drive an older gpu that's more power hungry, we're probably going to want to find something in the 750W Range (maybe even modular if we can budget for it,) *An SSD: It's 2020 and I'm still going without one which is killing my productivity and meaning that Windows 10 and OBS isn't running as fast as they could be. I always see some kind of Samsung SSD in everyone's rig so I'm assuming this 860 is good for its current sale price. *A Better cooler + fans to OC the Ryzen better to be able to increase productivity overall: The stock cooler is good but it's not letting me push the cpu to its full potential, I'm unsure what I could get in this budget though. I'm welcome to all suggestions and improvements to make sure that I'm not wasting money where I don't need to, thank you <3.
