  1. haha i really am out of "stupid-thing" ideas. I already reinstalled windows, i cleared cmos, reset bios settings, run the installer as an admin, tried other versions, unplugged the pc and reinstalled again^^ all of that still leads to the same "aura stopped working" error followed by the browser windows with the error messages shown in my first post^^ I guess i'll have to live without the rgb lightning on the motherboard until they finally fix that issue somehow (i guess that will be in like 2022 or something^^)
  2. Hey thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately it didn't work... Any other ideas?
  3. Hey guys, I just built a PC and everything is running fine except for one thing. The Lightning on the Asus Z270E motherboard doesn't really work. The RGB lights don't light up at all, but i think that's because you have to set them up using the Aura Software from Asus. So first thing i did was going to the Asus page and downloaded the newest Bios version and after that the newest version of the Asus Aura software. Here's where the problem starts: When everything is installed and i try to open the Aura software, it tries to open but immediately crashes and op
  4. It is a friend of mine that runs his own business, but he lives right next to me so if he should run into problems it should be easy for me to help, but thanks for your suggestions! Yeah i was also thinking about getting an adapter to connect both displays. Thanks for your reply! I think i will go with a motherboard with HDMI and DisplayPort output and an i5 6500 but no graphics card (because it's apparently not needed in this case). Thanks for your help guys!
  5. Thanks for the quick reply! What motherboard do they use? How are the monitors connected?
  6. Hey everyone I want to build an office PC with a dual-monitor Setup. The PC will be used for daily office work that includes working with MS Office, accounting and some light photo editing work. Since i have only built gaming systems until now, i have a question about the multi-monitor setup. My questions is: Does this PC need a graphics Card (and if so which one would you suggest?) or can you run 2 monitors with onboard graphics? Sorry if this is a dumb question, i know that you can run multiple monitors with onboard graphics but the problem is, that
  7. I would be really happy to win the Sagitta Spectrum mouse because it looks simple and elegant and i'm building a Gaming Rig for a friend of mine so i could gift it to him.

  9. Thank you all for your quick replies, you are awesome guys If you all say so, i think i'll go with the 620W Seasonic PSU. Thanks!
  10. Hey everyone I'm building a gaming rig as a gift for a friend of mine. I already purchased most of the parts (got a used r9 290x and a Intel Xeon for a good price). Now I'm not really sure what PSU to get. I put the build together in Pcpartpicker and it says the system will need around 489W to run. So i thought i would go with a Seasonic S12II 620W PSU, but i read on some sites, where they still sell the 290x, that the recommended wattage for the system to run this GPU is 750W or more. So my question is, will this build work with that PSU or do you guys think i s
  11. Ok, you didn't mention the 2 monitors before, but if you want to go with a cheaper GPU i would go with the r9 380x instead, as it costs around the same but performs better Sapphire Radeon R9 380X Nitro 4GB

  13. I put something together for you, with your budget i could fit a 980 Ti in there as well as the 6700k. But i had to ditch the AIO CPU cooler for an air cooler but that will do the job as well. Hope i could help Edit: Damn, link didn't work correctly, give me a minute^^
