  1. Ever since getting older I now do not understand the point of cheating in any game. I know this has been said a lot but It takes the fun out of it for other players and most importantly, yourself. With cheating, you lose all sense of player progression and feeling of self-worth on a video game. On a game like CS:GO or Dota that is everything that made those games fun for me. But I guess if you're younger and immature it might be more amusing Just my opinion on it
  2. Ever since I was little, like a lot of people, I have been using a PC (keyboard) to type things (obviously). I have never considered myself a fast or accurate typer because I never really learned the proper way to type (I want to get faster). I think the proper way is to put your index fingers on F and J keys but I have never done this. I don't know exactly what people who type like me are called (I think there's a name) but I like to skip around my keyboard and keep the hands in awkward spots not really utilizing all my fingers (mostly my index and middle fingers because I guess it's what I g
  3. Was looking to build a new pc now for a while and was aiming for a budget of $2000 CAD and ended up going over. Even though I went over I think I am pleased with the parts I selected and how it will look. Just making this to see if I should switch anything out of that sort.

  4. So do you think that maybe their Surface Book meets a better criteria as a 2 in 1 tablet versus the Surface Pro and Go?
  5. So I have been looking for a 2 in 1 laptop (I understand it's more of a tablet) for a while now for just regular use things like media and school. I just saw the Surface Go on Best Buy and I believe it has just come out recently. The price really is what has intrigued me the most from this device.

  6. I got this https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Backlit-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboard/dp/B01CDYB8F6/ref=gbph_tit_m-5_c4af_0aacfb9e?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=df9be9f3-9db7-4515-aec1-0b5c2d4bc4af&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-5&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=541966&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=GCYRT3S8TQXT5KSXGWZ8
  7. You should be running most games perfectly fine with a 1070ti at 1080p or even 1440p
  8. I'd probably get the HD6XX since I like Sennheiser. So would I need an amplifier if I got a pair of headphones like those? Are these type of headphones good for gaming?
  9. Do you have any suggestions for under $250
  10. I am looking to improve my audio for my headphones but I don't know if my headphones (Sennheiser HD 558) can even take advantage of an amplifier. I am looking for something that is under $100 and will obviously improve my headphone audio quality. Thanks
  11. So I have been looking for a smart watch for a while now. I got the Apple Watch 1 a few years back and didn’t like it and returned it. I am just really looking for a watch that can receive notifications on it and has a circular design preferably. I would like something priced south of 200 dollars.
  12. Hey I was also wondering if right now is a good time to buy a laptop or not. Because I was wondering if some new technology like the 11 series from nvidia is coming soon or like the one Intel mini pc that has the gpu and cpu on the same chip that will make its way into newer laptops
  13. What about the Lenovo Yoga 730? I am liking the 720 though.
  14. I would like a 15" and under or near $1000
  15. So I want a laptop that can do school and light gaming. I know there are many that are good at this but I also am looking for a laptop that you can draw on. So I want to know if there are many laptops with this ability. I know of the Surface Book but that’s too expensive for me.
  16. What are audio files? Just sound that is uncompressed or something?
  17. So I have the Sennheiser HD 558 headphones and I know they're kind of a budget pair of headphones but they're still what I consider expensive and I think they should sound better than they do now. I got the Massdrop Minimic to put on the side of it and make it into a nice headset but I am no longer using my Blue Yeti which I was using the built-in sound card which sounded nicer than my rear audio. I am wondering if getting an internal sound card would improve my audio and if it would be worth it. I don't do anything professional I just listen to a lot of music which only sounds decent (I guess
  18. I need a new ethernet cable and I previously had a Cat 5e cable and I have 100mpbs down which I think is near the peak capability of that wire so I figured I would get Cat 6 since it looks cheap. I was looking at this cable and I would like to know if the 25ft variant is a good cable and sufficient enough for gaming and downloads. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-RJ45-Cat-6-Ethernet-Patch-Cable-5-Feet-1-5-Meters/dp/B00N2VIWPY/ref=pd_sbs_147_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00N2VILDM&pd_rd_r=SYA83PTZPNXHCPKV5Y7A&pd_rd_w=753S7&pd_rd_wg=Mnh5g&refRID=SYA83PTZPNXHCPKV5Y7A&
  19. So I believe I am getting some interference from my motherboard output and I am wondering what the solution is to this is. I was thinking an external sound card but don't know if the cheap ones are any good or what one to get. thanks
  20. So a few months ago I bought a Blue Yeti microphone in a good bundle with a game and it's a nice sounding microphone. Recently I have grown to not enjoy it as much because I've found having a microphone on your desk kind of gets in the way and is annoying. I am constantly moving it out of the way and having to reposition it so I can type on my keyboard easier. I guess I could buy a boom arm and such but I don't want that "streamer/YouTuber" look. I originally bought it just to have good mic quality when talking to others and do not use it for anything but gaming. I am looking for
  21. Where would I watch the movies? Off a Blu Ray disk? Netflix? This is where most my confusion is because I don't know what supports surround sound and what I need to make it work with a TV. I am buying a new TV and don't know whether or not to get 4k or 1080p.
  22. Getting a good setup for watching movies has been something I've wanted to do for a while now and I don't know where to start. Some things I am confused about is where/how I would watch the movies and what things would I need to buy to accompany my TV?
