  1. Good to know. I think I actually have a DVI to HDMI cable in my "why do I even have these cables anymore?" box
  2. Budget (including currency): <700USD Country: USA. Also close enough to drive to the Tustin, CA Microcenter Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Minecraft Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Told a friend I'd help her put together a PC for her daughter's birthday(9 y/o). From what I'm told, the daughter wants two monitors to play Minecraft and chat with friends. I guess my biggest concern is whether a 32
  3. Yeah, I've seen a few builds and what they can fit in them. I just have an issue where I have to see it in person before I feel comfortable with it. I have a similar problem at work where we have to do simple isometric drawings of piping systems for training purposes. I've seen other people take various pictures and draw from them. I'm not comfortable with drawing unless I'm looking at the pipe in question.
  4. I think I'm just going to buy the case now so I can get a better idea on how I want to lay things out. I get nervous about space concerns when I only have pictures/videos and the supplied case dimensions to work with. I think things will be way easier if I just do my own measurements with the case in hand. I'll keep everything you said in mind while I figure everything out.
  5. I was going to have the radiator fixed to the chassis with the fans attached to them, but it would be better the other way around? I feel having the fans attached to the chassis would make dust management easier as the fans wouldn't be in the way for cleaning, but I wasn't sure if they could handle the weight of the unsupported radiator under them. I haven't planned a drain port but I figured I'd just fill from the reservoir as I'm not sure how I'd go about filling from the top radiator. My problem with putting a front radiator in would be that I'd have to remove the
  6. Attempting to plan out a CPU+GPU custom loop in the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv to see if I have space for everything I want. Atm I'm looking at top mounting a triple radiator with these fans and using this pump/res I made this rough mspaint image where 1 pixel represents 1mm in an attempt to see how much free space I'd have above the res to hopefully be able to mount an extra HDD, but I was having trouble finding out how much "dead space" there is between the radiator mount and the actual top of the case, so I just gave it an extra 35mm. Am I way off base and there's a bette
  7. I'll keep that in mind. I'll wait and see how the pricing on the 1050ti laptops will be and then come back and ask for advice in comparing
  8. Yeah, I'm not in much of a hurry. I don't actually need it for work, it's just going to be a huge convenience. At the moment I only need to "fight" with one coworker to use the computer at work, but in January I'll need to fight with 3-5. Honestly not a big fan of Razer. I won't count them out, though.
  9. If I could get what I'm asking for by spending around $1000 USD, that'd be great. Otherwise I'll have to rethink whether the gaming is worth it. When it comes to work, I only need to be able to open .pdfs and write word documents. So that's really an irrelevant factor. When it comes to gaming, I just want it to be able to play easier to run games like Child of Light, Ori and the Blind Forest, Disgaea, etc. I'm only familiar with mid-high end desktop hardware so I'm not really sure what to look for in a laptop. Do I even need a GPU or are the CPU integrated graphics good

  11. I'm not really interested in a larger resolution. 1080p is good enough and a 24" display is large enough considering I keep it less than 2 feet from my face. I'm more concerned with removing tearing. But would I get tearing if I capped my fps at 144 with vsync off without gsync? I'd assume leaving vsync on still would be out of the question, otherwise gsync wouldn't need to exist. Does gsync do more than remove tearing? I've heard that it helps reduce stuttering when fps spikes. If I went with a 24" 1080p 144hz monitor without gsync, are there any recommendations? There's quite a lot m
  12. Mostly want to buy it for CS:GO. That and LoL I think are the only two games that I play that I can even get to run at 144fps. Granted, those games combined take up about 90% of my gaming time. If gsync would be worth it, I'm having trouble finding monitors that are 24". Everyone always recommends the 27" ones. So far this looks like the best one I could find: BenQ G-SYNC Hybrid Engine 24-Inch Gaming Monitor XL2420G But here's another two I found: I feel like it's too cheap to be all that good. And I couldn't give a crap about 3D AOC G2460PG 24" G-SYNC 3D-Ready Ultimate Perfor
  13. I plan on trying out water cooling when I build my next computer sometime next year, in which I'd probably use this case. For now, I'd just like to move my current components into a better case. I was curious as to whether the stock fans are good enough, and if there are enough of them or if I should buy more? I'm not anal about my PC being too loud (to an extent, of course) I just want it cool. And I'd prefer a positive air pressure. I'm running Mobo: ASRock z77 extreme4 GPU: MSI GTX 970 CPU: i5 3570k @ 4.0Ghz with a Hyper 212evo cooler RAM: 8gb crucial ballistix Storage: Crucial
  14. Looks like all of the Das keyboards are either blue or brown switches. With the exception of one that can come with red. And I'm really not that big on the style. Ugh, why did Steelseries have to get all fancy with their damn windows key. Maybe I'll just have to settle... QQ
  15. I'm personally in love with my needforseat/maxnomic chair. Only problem with it is one of the screws it came with for installation was fubar and I was shorted a washer. You'd think when you buy a $400 chair that the company could afford to throw in a couple extra screws and washers just in case, you know?
