  1. that looks good to me. I don't think prices will be dropping much, at least with the 580, because most of the new Nvidia cards aren't really competing at this price range, (they are higher end cards )
  2. Ill check those out, thanks for the suggestions :)
  3. budget around 100, perferred 50, I want good all around headphones for doing lots of different things so I guess I'd want balanced or flat sound signature
  4. Im looking in the range of less than 100 $, probably around 50 would be best , but I could do higher or lower.
  5. Ill check those out, thanks for a starting place
  6. I've been using the Panasonic Ergo-fit in-ear headphones (HERE), because they stay in my ears well, but they don't have the best audio quality. I've been having trouble finding better in-ear buds which aren't Bluetooth/wireless. I was hoping you guys had some recommendations. I use these headphones for almost everything, like gaming jogging, and just casually listening to music while I cook. let me know if you have any suggestions of similar types of headphones with better quality, Thanks
  7. Where do you guys live that you get 1 day shipping?! Where I am, we have prime 2 day, but my orders are frequently delayed by an extra day ( I assume that's just because of where I live) ... One day shipping would be so sweet tho! I think that amazon generally does great with customer support otherwise, and all of my problems that I've had with the site have come from dealing with 3rd party sellers, not actually with amazon
  8. the 1060 is a much better card, and I would suggest it, I think the only reason I would go with a 1050ti would be cost or maybe space? But for 1080p gaming the 1050 would actually struggle in some games, while the 1060 can hold it's own much better, and will last for a few years IMO EDIT didn't look too close at the CPU, but I'd still go with the 1060, and focus on upgrading CPU, ( or everything) next, depending on budget
  9. Whenever I get bored-- am not playing some other game, I'll throw on a podcast and play age of empires 2, It's my all time favorite, although I usually just play against bots, because that way I can leave whenever and not feel bad (multiplayer games can end up going a crazy long time)
  10. I was just thinking about getting a new cable, as my current cable is damaged in a couple places. this looks like a pretty sweet deal, thanks for posting.
  11. I think that while 800x600 is a little extreme, I do usually downscale games to play at a higher frame rate. It just feels so choppy to play at a struggling 40-50 vs stepping the resolution down one step and getting a much more fluid 60. That's exactly what I did with fallout4 when I was still running a gtx760 . I stepped my res down to 1680-1050 instead of 1900-1200 ( old monitor) so that I could get a stable 60fps. I don't really try to get higher frames than 60 though. (not really a problem anymore now that I have a 1060)
  12. Cool, Ill look into that ( not planning to upgrade for at least a month) I figured that my chipset was probably too old. Thanks for the recommendation
  13. Hey guys, first time poster, looking to possibly upgrade my system. I currently have an I5-4570 CPU, and I was wondering if there is an newer CPU I can buy that fits my motherboard (ASUS H81M-E ) using the H81 chipset, or if I should just upgrade motherboard as well, to get a newer chipset, and newer CPU? Also do you think that I really need to upgrade? I'm thinking about it because I've had this board/cpu for about 4-5 years. Recently I upgraded the GPU (760 -> 1060) and that gave me big improvements in FPS( from ~40 to 60-80 depending on the game and settings), so I was wondering if I cou
