    Sound Bar?

    I was actually looking at that second one..

    Sound Bar?

    What brand, though? there's like 1000 differemt ones...

    Sound Bar?

    I had an LG PK5, but sadly, it died. Capacitor or something blew. RIP. I DO have headphones/sets but I don't wear them 75% of the time. So a "speaker " is needed. But looking through speakers, they all look weird, and the "normal" ones are damn expensive. And most BT ones are little wanky speakers. I have been looking at sound bars. They are cheaper, and a lot of them have more functions. I did see Linus's video on them, but that was back in 2018. Lot can change in 3 years. Any recommendations here? Either NewEgg or Amazon. Looking at <=$50-75
  4. I currently am running a Razer BlackWidow V2 Chroma. Yellow switches. I DO have a Corsair K93 (don't quote me on that) keyboard, but that has MX Red. It is way too typing fast for my liking. I DO have some Dicky (cant remember model) keyboard, with MX Brown, only shows one color, but the matter with that, I need a num pad. I use it often. I need a new keyboard, as some keys aren't responding. Way out of warranty. I would like to have USB pass through. I have my wireless mouse dongle sitting there. Also, I prefer either MX Brown or MX
  5. Do you know a good, idk, "cage" to keep my modem, router, switch, and my UPS in? This is current layout: This is in the basement, I'm worried about everything getting clogged with dust. (like Linus' server room) All the ones I see are $150+. Is there a way I can protect these, or should I invest in a real wall-mountable case?
  6. I been looking at that, and it seems rather like what PFSense is plus a few whistles...
  7. I currently have a small AMD system that's running PFSense. It has 2x Ethernet ports. One is set to WAN, going from my Spectrum ISP Modem, other to LAN that goes into my switch. But that computer is slowly dying. Needed to reset it a few times this month. I just want something just in case, to replace this. Diagram of my network: I have heard about the Ubiquiti ER-X, BUT it has gone up $100 (to $160) since last year... Is there some better options? I have Spectrum internet, 200/11. So nothing too expensive should be needed here. Budget? ~$100
  8. I have 2 server-grade boards. 775/Socket T (was looking at this: https://www.newegg.com/thermaltake-clp0534/p/N82E16835106152) 1366/Socket B (was looking at this: https://www.newegg.com/phanteks-ph-tc12ls-bk/p/N82E16835709039) I need heatsinks for both. I want to keep this low profile, so no tower heatsinks. With the age of the CPU's, there's only a few options. Anything under $50 each, should be great. I DO understand that there are server heatsinks, As below. But I don't think they cool that well. Do they?
  9. I have most everything planned out, just need a motherboard. To get the AMD Ryzen 5000 gen, I need a B550 or X570 chipset. As X570 is upper class, and not really something I need to get into. B550 should be fine. I need at least 2x m.2 slots. As I plan to fit in my Samsung 500GB and 250GB m.2 NVME cards. I need wireless/BT, also. I prefer M-ATX. But if the price is right, I can go with a Mini-ITX or full ATX. I also hate some that have D-Sub ports. Just seems to alien for me. PS/2 ports also. WTF ever uses them anymore? I
  10. So does that mean you don't care about my wishes? OLOy RAM? Who are they? I NEVER heard of them. And I heard weird ones, too...
  11. Damn, I wasn't watching for that. Darn PCPartPicker.. I meant for these: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232748 I need 32GB, because I run a lot of VM's. And that can take up quite a bit. I thought I didn't need to include that, as in, I know what I'm getting. @Brok3n But who cares?You totally scrapped everything I just said... Why did you go for a Intel system when I posted AMD? @brobI'll look at those. Yeah, I'll bump it up to 3200. @Archer42 I know my RX 580 isn't on par with a Ryzen 4650G APU. BUT I'm no

Budget (including currency): USD Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Light Gaming, Light Video-Editing 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 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $194.99 @ Newegg CPU Cooler
  13. I have rather small hands for my age (35). BUT I felt those controllers with my cousin's one, and they just never fit right. So I tried the pro controller she had, and I was right at home. I'm a retro guy. NES, SNES, N64, PS/2, GB PSP, etc. I just loved the way the SNES controller felt.
  14. I am not afraid of refurbished products. I have a LOT of devices that were refurbished around here. 90% of them still work to this day. Now, should I buy a new Nintendo Switch off the shelf from, say BestBuy? OR should I get it used from, say eBay? Should I get the whole shebang, or just the tablet? Buy the dock, pro controller (I hate the numchucks) separately? Anyone know about these, please? (I'll buy the games separate)

    New Headset

    Yeah, I see ones on eBay for ~$50, and ones on NewEgg/Amazon for ~$80
