Sony WH1000XM3 ANC headphones Thinkpad T440p (upgraded to 1080p IPS display, i7-4910mq, 8GB RAM - Arch Linux & Win 10 dual boot) Logitech MX Master 3 Galaxy Note 9 HyperJuice 100watt USB-C Charger USB-C to Thinkpad charger adapter Spare HDMI Cable w/ HDMI to Mini DP Adapter 4TB External HDD 64GB Flash Drive Thats it!
  2. I don't understand the obsession manufacturers have with making phones thinner and thinner. They've been thin enough for years and I would much rather have a larger battery. With how big the screens have gotten, there has to be enough room inside for a measly headphone jack. Admittedly, I almost never use mine anymore (Note 9) but it's nice to know it's there.
  3. Damn that looks incredible. Kudos to you!
  4. Beautiful build! Welcome to the PCMR. It always makes me happy to see more understated builds without excessive RGB nonsense. Should treat you well and be extra silent!
  5. For a game like bloodborne k+m and controllers are both excellent options. /thread When I saw my friend playing bloodborne on his PS4 a few years back I was so upset when I found out it was an exclusive. Really hope it comes to PC! I think with Horizon on PC now and Gamepass putting on the pressure Bloodborne on PC could realistically happen We'll see!
  6. Go in the bios and make sure your memory XMP profile is set.
  7. I just finished the game. Ran on GTX 1080 FTW @ 1923 MHz on these settings. Almost never dropped below 60. Dropped to 57 at Rhodes campsite but otherwise held solid above 60, went as high as 83 fps. The in-game benchmark stresses GPU harder than any actual gameplay. I got like 36 min or something along those lines but actual gameplay never dropped. Mix of ultra, medium, and high. Settings 1, 2, 3 This game is heavily GPU limited. Your CPU is almost definitely fine for this game. Edit: Just realized you want to run at 1440p. I played at 1080p.
  8. I've been storing my games on a 7200rpm hard disk drive since 2010, and recently I've felt like SATA SSDs are just about cheap enough that it might be worth going full-SSD in my gaming rig. I'm aware the games don't make use of the faster load times you get with NVMe but I'm curious, will they eventually become a necessity? With the next-gen consoles having fast storage will developers be able to leverage this in any meaningful way?
  9. I'm building a PC for my dad mainly to trade stocks and watch YouTube videos. My friend gave me an old GTX 760 and I know from time to time my sister will want to play the Sims 4 or edit a photo in Lightroom, so I'm wondering what cpu I should get. My goal is to stay as cheap as possible, but still maintain solid performance in Windows 10. I have 8gigs of DDR3 lying around, would it be feasible to go with an older i5? 3570, 4590 perhaps, or would that be too old? Would it be worth it to bite the bullet and spend a little more for a Ryzen 3 and just get new ram? Any suggestions would be appreci
  10. I think the biggest problem with Star Citizen's development is that they keep trying to add new features when the current features aren't even remotely fleshed out or finalized. I've played Star Citizen for ~25 hours or so and if they had just focused on expanding server capacities, increasing the responsiveness of the controls, refining the UI/quest tracking, fixing the few game-breaking bugs I've found, and creating a substantial friends list/chat client I think the game would be enjoyable enough to the point that people spend more time and money on it than they do now.
  11. Emulators. If you have a computer or a cell phone, you can play pretty much any game on SNES, GBA, PS1, maybe even GameCube and PSP depending on your phone. There are hundreds if not thousands of incredible games you can play. I plug my phone into the TV and use a bluetooth controller and it's an incredible experience.
  12. Hey guys, I'm building a PC for my sister and I am looking for a cheap Micro-ATX motherboard for my i5-7600k. She only wants to play the Sims and I know this is probably overkill but I've got it laying around so I figure someone might as well get some use out of it. I'd like to have enough PCI-E lanes to run a GTX 960 and a wireless card, or have wifi built into the motherboard. On Craigslist I found an H110m Pro-VD from MSI for $40 but I can't find any definite evidence as to whether a bios update would enable support for the 7600k. Marketing info only says it supports up to 6th gen. Any sugg
  13. So the holidays have come and gone and having tons of kids and family over has made me realize that I need a PC for the living room. So I'm building one! Anywho I plan on chocking it full with my entire steam library as well as a bunch of retro games / emulators! I've got some obvious go-to titles in mind (mainly the Nintendo stuff, every single Mario Party, Mario Kart) but I need your help - what games did you have the most fun playing with your family during the holidays? Not limited to consoles, of course - this is a PC after all! I look forward to everyone's responses and can't wait to dis
  14. I'm not worried about storage I have some SSDs around that I can cannibalize, just trying to figure out which CPU to get. This deal is pretty nuts and with a free game to boot... looking at benchmarks of the 2700x with a 1080 vs an i7-8700k just seals it. Slightly fewer frames for half the price, can't argue with that. I'll go with the 2700x. Thanks for the help!
