  1. Hi, I'm having trouble deciding between these 3. Planning a 5600x build. The B550 boards are around £180, the X570 Tomahawk is £200, so not much more. I don't mind paying more for it but I'm not keen on there being a chipset fan, could be loud and annoying. But at the same time the fact it's just £20 more makes it harder to justify getting one of the B550 boards. So yeah I'm really not sure what to do. What would you guys suggest? Thanks.
  2. Hi guys, planning to do a new build soon, but the case I'm looking at getting is quite compact (Corsair 220T Airflow) so I'm not sure my current PSU will fit (165mm long) with the HDD cage in place. So if it doesn't I'll need something more compact, ideally no more than 140mm. I've done a fair amount of research and the ADATA XPG Core Reactor 750W looked like the best option, but was just wondering if I'd missed anything and if any others are worth considering? I'd like something that's good quality and quiet too. Thanks.
  3. thanks, i might get that if the keyboard i get doesnt have volume keys. is it possible to make it so that it's a combination, like ctrl+numpad- and ctrl+numpad+? just cause i like to have all my keys available. well i guess i shouldn't get that keyboard then. i like the one you linked, and its a very nice price. thanks, they're over what i wanted to spend but not by too much. i'm not too sure about the first one, i don't like that it's not printed on top of the key. the 2nd and 3rd ones look great though. thanks also you guys are worrying me about
  4. im not spending over £100 on a keyboard... all i need is a high key rollover so i can press many keys at the same time, and volume keys so i can change the audio level in game. my old keyboard, logitech wireless k360 worked great, it had 5 key rollover which was high enough for me and had volume keys. unfortunately it broke, well it started getting extremely laggy. i'm 16, i don't have a job, so spending over £100 on a keyboard would just be stupid. EDIT: im not 100% sure what i said about the logitech keyboard k360 is correct. keyboard key rollover seems to be very complicated...
  5. hey guys, im looking for a new gaming keyboard, all i need is volume keys (mute,down,up) and to be under £40 thanks!
  6. hey guys, i'm looking for a new keyboard for gaming. my old logitech k360 wireless keyboard i really liked and i found it good for gaming. unfortunately after a few years the wireless connectivity sort of just... broke. so now i'm using a hp keyboard i bought off the internet as a temporary solution until i found something i liked. unfortunately this keyboard isn't very good for gaming. it only has a 3 key rollover and not all 3 key combinations work which is very annoying. my k360 had a 5 key rollover, and that wasn't even a gaming keyboard. the only thing important to me is key rollover
  7. that looks good, i'll see if i can find it somewhere else than amazon as it says 'usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months' . what do you guys think of the ones i linked in my original post?
  8. well it's just i can't find any reviews about that monitor and i'd rather not spend my money on something i know nothing about.
  9. i like that except for that it's a glossy screen. sorry, i should have mentioned i don't like glossy screens.
  10. what do you think of that monitor? i can't really find much information or reviews about it.
  11. hey guys, i've been looking to get a new monitor and i've narrowed down my decision to 3 monitors. i'm a gamer but i don't have the money for a really expensive 1ms 144hz monitor. i've also decided i want to get an ips/pls monitor, because even though they're not generally bought for gaming they aren't too bad if you get a fast 5ms one. and tbh my current monitor is 2ms, last one was 5ms and i couldn't tell any difference. and i like the fact colours & viewing angles are better. these are the 3 monitors i've found: Asus VX239H: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-VX239H-23-inch-Widescreen
  12. guys? do u think i'd be disappointed in gaming performance with an IPS monitor? ^^ thanks!
  13. thanks for all the advice guys! wow this forum is really great on most other forums i get barely any replies, so yeah, im really grateful for how kind everyone in the community is . do you guys think i'd be disappointed in gaming performance with an IPS monitor? like i said, i'm not very good at telling the difference between things, 12ms, 5ms, 2ms i dont notice the difference, and 30fps vs 60fps although i notice it it's not a huge difference for me. but would i notice the difference between IPS vs TN in gaming? a review i looked at of the samsung said it was 5.4ms. i think the samsung is
  14. hi guys, im looking for a new monitor that's 24-inch, 1080p, good for gaming. my budget is around £160 maximum. when i say 'good for gaming' i don't need 144hz or 1ms or anything like that, i probably won't be able to tell the difference anyway because my first monitor was about 12ms, my last monitor was 5ms and this one is 2ms, and they all looked the same in terms of responsiveness to me. but i don't want anything bad for gaming. it also needs to look good (picture quality and design). i've found some monitors already, but i'm not sure how good they are for gaming. if anyone can recommend di
