  1. Hi friends My friend is looking to get his first PC and I'm helping him build it. We're located in the US and his price range is $600-700 USD for just the tower. He plans on using the build primarily for Adobe programs--specifically Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom, and Premiere--but he also wants the ability to game comfortably with us when the opportunity arises. He's gonna start off w/ a single 1080p monitor and we'd probably play CS, GTA, and other games as well during this quarantine. Thanks a bunch
  2. My friend wants me to build him a PC but I've been out of the whole PC niche for a fat minute so I need help. He wants to spend 800USD on just the tower. He plans on solely gaming (I know he's an ARK lover but I'm pretty sure he's going to be playing a lot more intensive games as well. He also wants to be able to play on a 144hz monitor.
  3. i'm gonna be cleaning my computer today while i install my new drives and that includes reapplying thermal paste. i didn't want to buy a new bottle of isopropyl so i asked my friend if i could use his. he showed me his bottle of isopropyl is expired? it expired on june 2018 and i was wondering if that stops me from using it to clean the thermal paste safely. it's 92% isopropyl.
  4. its in the spoiler in the post so should i pair my new hdd with an ssd instead of getting more ram? will i notice any improvements while using cc apps with an ssd?
  5. i've been recently getting more into photography and videography while tinkering with after effects and photoshop, but i've noticed that those programs are running a lil bit too slow for me. i've been using the same build since 2014 which shall be listed here i was considering upgrading my storage system as my hard drive has been excruciatingly loud ever since the day i got it but it hasn't caused any trouble in terms of containing media. since the drive is somewhat old and on the "lower" side of the quality spectrum i was wondering if it was possible that my drive could play a c
  6. I have aa raazer bw ultimaate 2014 and as you can tell my aaa's are chattering aand it's getting really annoying lmfaao. It's been doing it for the past 2 months aand I really think its time to get a new one since its annoying to go back on my essaays anad delete the extra a's. I want a quiet mechanical keyboard aaas I'm getting annoyed with these loud ass razer switches. I'm leaning on the cherry mx red switches. I'm looking for keyboards that are under 75ish USD that haave the following: some sort of backlight (would prefer white or rgb, but if it's colored i don't really mind)
  7. I get fps stutters but FH3 is so much fun

  8. I just bought forza horizon 3 :D

    1. Techicolors


      have fun, the game is a blast 

    2. MattTheMayor


      What settings do you run it on? I'm a bit sketched out because of my RAM and graphics card lol

    3. Techicolors


      judging from the system in your profile it'll do ok. but the game stutters a lot at 60fps or unlocked, so keep it at 30fps

  9. Has this already happened? I'm interested in the game, but I would really like to try it out first.
  10. so you wouldn't recommend buying a 140mm as an exhaust? i was planning on using the 200mm as intake and itll flow throughout the 140mm as an exhaust
  11. I'm making a build for my friend using the Thermaltake Core v21 which is a micro atx board. I plan on using a 212 evo as his heatsink and buying a 120mm fan (I was thinking of a corsair AF120. any other recommendations for same price or lower?) as an exhaust fan since the case only comes with a 200mm fan in the front. I was wondering if this plan would work or would there be a better way to use it, or would a 140mm work better? IIRC, a 140mm can fit on the rear side as well.
  12. oh crap haha. someone said that they used that instead of the usb dongle. thanks!
  13. Definitely plugged in all the way. Pushed as hard as I can without breaking anything and nothing moved. Also on Realtek when they do the test for the left speaker, I hear it on my right ear. Then when I hear the test for the right side, I also hear it on my right ear, but it sounds farther away I plugged it in through the USB dongle again and the sound is fine.
