  1. I like the ncase m1 and nr200 better than this one... Also doesn't lian li own ncase? the GPU power cables will be fine
  2. Yeah If someone else was gonna buy a pcie4.0 ssd, I would tell them the same thing, but I want it anyway About the PSU, can I just buy a splitter or do I need to look into another PSU? thx
  3. The ninja5 is 155mm high and the NR200 fits coolers up to 155mm high Worst case scenario I'll get 1mm shorter standoffs
  4. https://imgur.com/gallery/dE0oJRU It barely fits, I love it!
  5. I'd get a used RX470 for a nice bump Edit: and please get an SSD
  6. Budget (including currency): not set, just going for bang4buck Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Valorant, Unity, ETH Mining, Minesweeper... (yes 3080 is overkill but i still want it) 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): PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Proc
  7. also how is it possible that people are getting current gen GPU/CPUs by waiting for a bot then doing it manually? Isnt that way slower than just a bot?
  8. RX480. Got it in 2017, Mined ethereum in 2018, will still be playing esports games at 200+ FPS in 2021.
  9. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-pavilion-15-6-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-5-8gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1650-256gb-ssd-shadow-black/6427566.p?skuId=6427566 This laptop isn't perfect but at $450 it's a steal.
  10. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-omen-15-6-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-7-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1660-ti-1tb-ssd-mica-silver/6407752.p?skuId=6407752 Surprised this hasn't been posted yet (afaik).
  11. It depends on the monitor, like how not all 4k monitors are equal.
  12. Hi, I want to buy a stylus for my iPad Air 2, but online it is difficult to determine which stylus to buy as they all have different claims and some say they won't be compatible etc. For example, some say they don't have palm rejection but the palm rejection works fine for this garbage rubber dome stylus I got for free somewhere. Id rather not spend more than $30, preferably under $20. I am not sure if I want an active stylus or not, the only thing I really want is to use the back of the stylus to erase in onenote but I fear that's not possible. Thanks
  13. This sounds like a video card issue to me. On my old laptop, I would have the same problem (minus losing internet on my phone) and I fixed it by disabling the discrete graphics. Have you tried running stress tests? Usually you can find which component is failing by stress testing them individually. For now, I would try underclocking your video card. This will relieve some stress on it, so it may be less likely to fail.
  14. You made sure to set the mode of the last screen to 144hz? It might have defaulted to 60hz,
