  1. Linustechtips, you must review the updated version of this laptop with 8th gen Intel CPU and the blessed 144Hz screen you asked for in your previous version review! @LinusTech Link: https://www.gigabyte.com/Laptop/AERO-15X--i7-8750H#kf
  2. He replied to my other thread, I just wanted to know if there were any other alternatives I should be considering in the same ball park.
  3. The G7 doesn't have a high refresh rate display. I did however just come across the MSI GP63 which seems to fit the bill pretty well so far...
  4. Hi guys, I'm looking for the cheapest laptop with the following conditions: GTX 1060 i7 8750H 16GB DDR4 SSD + HDD expandability High refresh rate display Not ridiculously heavy Decent battery life Does it exist? The only option I found that was available in my country satisfying these conditions was a Gigabyte Sabre 15 but I'm wondering if there's better out there. Thank you so so much. Kind regards, Ryan
  5. They're similar in price, but the Sabre has the 120Hz display and bigger battery. However it seems less popular than the G7, why is this?
  6. Lol @everyone didn't realise this case supported ATX will go back to drawing board...
  7. @QuantumBit I see here they just left the shroud off in some of the photos, and to be honest I think that looks way more attractive. Plus, an increase of $30 max over other options which are like 300W less really isn't something for me to sweat...
  8. @QuantumBit See photos at https://www.umart.com.au/umart1/pro/Products-details.phtml?id=10&id2=210&bid=5&sid=287078 They tell a different story... EDIT: Nvm I see they just left the shroud off
  9. @Vadise In terms of white PSUs that unit is only about $30 more than a Silverstone 520W PSU, which are the only two real white PSUs I can seem to choose from. While usually I would pick a hard drive for mass storage, this is the first build I'm determined to make with purely SSDs (1 for boot and 1 for mass storage, mainly because combining them incurs a premium of $100). With the ROG board thing, I'm well-aware of this but this is the only Z370 mATX board available here right now from Asus, which I haven't yet been convinced to abandon... Very valid points, but keep in mind the white them
  10. Hey guys, I've made a couple of adjustments to my previous build design posted earlier, and have come to this: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/TeRaByTeFrEnZy/saved/rRDnnQ To explain, this is a white-themed mATX double-shoebox-sized build aimed at 1440p gaming at all levels of intensity. While the prices are listed in Australian Rupees (thanks Abbott/Turnbull LNP government ), I may be purchasing the parts in Euros while in Europe. Component Price ($AUD) Intel Core i5 8600K Six Core LGA 1151 3.6 GHz CPU Processor
  11. Hey guys, Please check out my build on PC Part Picker and critique it: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/TeRaByTeFrEnZy/saved/rRDnnQ Table below: Component Price ($AUD) Intel Core i5 8600K Six Core LGA 1151 3.6 GHz CPU Processor $399 Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming Wi-Fi LGA 1151 mATX Motherboard $299 Corsair 16GB CMK16GX4M2B3000C15W DDR4 3000 MHz Vengeance LPX White $287 Galax Geforce GTX 1070 White HOF 8GB $649
  12. @TARS So does that mean it can hook up to other devices too, or does it only have pre-synched LEDs on-board?
  13. Hey, So I was wondering if the ASUS ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming ( https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-G-GAMING-WI-FI-AC/ ) has an internal RGB header for RGB synchronisation with other devices? I'm looking for an mATX current generation board with RGB for a double-shoebox size build. Thanks for all your help! -Ryan
  14. As in title. Personal experience is welcome. -R
  15. G'day! I'm looking for a good mouse to play CSGO with on my desktop but I'm struggling to find one straight answer on which is the best option. My requirements are: Must be wired Must be ergonomic Must be under $100 USD Please also leave a comment on why you chose a specific mouse (e.g. sensor, shape, etc) I read on some websites that the Zowie mice were good, but then others said their 3310 sensor was outdated. Other sites recommended Logitech mice, or even Razer mice - honestly, I just want a straight answer. Can people not agree on
