    Apparently I'm a "Lime Laundry Machine​​​​​​​."

    The parrot and I have reached an agreement: it can stay, and I receive RGB points and rent. Sometimes it hijacks my keyboard and leaves an RGB mess everywhere. Don't pay attention to it.

  1. Hey there. Do you care about thermals and noise, or aesthetics and building experience? If you'd like better thermals and quieter noise levels, I think the Phanteks Eclipse P400 offers slightly better performance. If aesthetics matter more, the NZXT H510's clean, minimalist style might be more appealing. I believe cable management and ease of building in this case is a touch better than the P400 (non-removable PSU shroud...?) as well? Other Features: If you want my opinion, I'd probably go with the NZXT H510 (third option: I'd save up for a better case). The H510 is easier on the eyes (for me, at least) and has a USB 3.1 Type-C port, which I consider more valuable than the slight thermal and noise level improvement I might get with the Phanteks Eclipse P400. *slaps on headphones to ignore the humming*
  2. Not sure if these below are the exact models, but the product descriptions and installation processes seem to line up (¥ refers to CN¥, $ refers to USD): yesdong液视盾 (it says 43", but there are options for 55") for ¥316.00 - ¥958.00 ($44.87 - $136.02) on 淘寶網 (Taobao). 55寸液晶電視機牀包屏幕... for ¥158.73 - ¥668.59 ($22.54 - $94.93) on 淘寶網 (Taobao). Specs n' Stuff: Unfortunately, the sites above are in Chinese and I'm not good enough at it to translate everything. Here's what I managed to pick up -- note that my translation skills aren't the best: If there were any actual material specs (besides physical size), I didn't see 'em.
  3. Free cloud storage (with capped capacities per account) like Google Drive and Dropbox are available and good for office files, media files, or backup. If there are any cloud storage services for games that will also let you play those games off the cloud, or if you're asking for server-scale cloud storage, I'm not familiar enough with the topic to recommend anything.
  4. BAND-MAID - Bubble Day 15 of BAND-MAID - I'm still addicted. I haven't been listening to anything else. Someone plan an intervention for me.
  5. Hey there. I'm assuming you live in the U.S.? If so: Try eBay, Craigslist, and FaceBook Marketplace for used parts. What "modern" games do you plan on running? Generally speaking, the GTX 1660 Super and the RX 580 are decent, but I'm not sure whether the used market has much of it in stock.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ NBD.
  7. Mm. I dunno, I just live in South Cali. The States has its rich and its poor places, I feel like it's difficult to make sweeping statements about the country.
  8. Hey there. SilverStone "media center" cases might be what you're looking for? Suggestions (Images and Specifications): More Examples: HTPC / MEDIA CENTER CASES (Filtered Search) by Newegg.
  9. PS5 Specifications: Source: Unveiling New Details of PlayStation 5: Hardware Technical Specs [UPDATED] by PlayStation.Blog. The specs look pretty nice, I suppose? Switching from a HDD (PS4) to an SSD would be pretty sweet for fast boot/loading times too. The whole shebang must cost a pretty penny, though. *stares at the 8-core/16-thread Ryzen and 825 GB SSD* And, uh, I... I didn't know that AMD had already developed Radeons that supported ray tracing (note that the blog post says, a "custom GPU"). Is this old news that I haven't picked up?
  10. I swear, 90% of rep I have gotten from you Eschew.

      mm yes

  11. I-I-I'm being watched... *nervous sweating* Sure thing with the rate limit, I'll just uh, try to keep all the reacting down. ...Maybe. Thanks for the update! Good to know.
  12. Hey there. The Samsung 970 EVO is a good choice, it has great performance and you get a good warranty period. For the other drive, generally speaking, a 1-2 TB HDD/SSD will be enough for the average user to store office files, games, light media (music, pictures), and miscellaneous things. I'd only recommend 3+ TB if you're doing content creation, database stuff, or some other special scenario that demands heavy storage. Also, I think the general consensus is that SSHDs are a sham. Users have usually reported craptastic reliability and only a marginal speed improvement over HDDs. I'd stick with either a HDD or a high capacity SSD if you've got the cash.
  13. Hey there. I'm assuming you mean this thread? The above thread's main purpose is to propose a standard format for threads in the New Builds and Planning sub-forum; a standard format would give the community more info to suggest better, more personalized advice for proposed systems. If you have a build plan that you'd like feedback for, I'd suggest posting a new thread instead of replying to the thread above. You will get notifications for threads that you follow and threads that you create (assuming you haven't adjusted your notification settings). Other people will not get notifications for threads they reply to unless they follow the thread or have been tagged (type "@") or quoted by someone else in the thread.
  14. Banned for not getting a room if you didn't want interruptions.
