  1. I'm looking for a good 144Hz Monitor for my laptop. This is my current laptop monitor: 15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080) 144Hz 9ms 300-nits 72% color gamut (If that's even important) These are the video ports it has: One HDMI 2.0 port One mini DisplayPort 1.4 One Thunderbolt 3 (USB 3.1 Gen 2) port I'm looking for a monitor that's between $180-$220, 144Hz, and is G-sync compatible. One monitor I have looked at is this one: https://www.amazon.com/AOC-C24G1-Frameless-DisplayPort-Adjustable/dp/B07GD5XG5G/ref=sr_1_2?crid=XFEO4HJAOU8M&dchild=1&keywords=144hz%2Bmonitor&qid=1600658588&sprefix=144hz%2Bmo%2Caps%2C151&sr=8-2&th=1 Is this monitor any good? Are there any better ones? Or maybe any other suggestions?
  2. Not sure where to put this, so I put it here. My friend is attempting to gather PC cleaning parts. He is looking for a good budget anti-static band but does not think any of the brands he has looked are reputable. Any good recommendations for an Anti Static band?
  3. Any suggestions on a better case?
  4. He's buying the parts over time, which is why its $500 per part. Hes not planning to overclock at all. And any suggestions for a good PSU?

  6. My friend says he is going to save up for a high-end PC. Thanks for the help, though!
  7. I added a post script about storage just now. Would you suggest the RX 570 or RX 580 for a cheaper GPU?

My friend wants a budget gaming PC thats in between $500-$600. Me and a couple of other friends have compiled this list. I want to know if these parts will work well with each other and if I can get cheaper parts. P.S He says he's good with his storage and his monitor and will simply bring them over. However, he has an HDD, if you have any suggestions for a cheap SSD that would also be appreciated!
