    I use Creative X7 as my DAC and headphone amp for my Beyer T1. Line out from the X7 goes to my Onkyo A-905FX2 speaker amp powering the Onkyo D-152E bookshelves.

    NuclearPenske7 got a reaction from _Hustler_One_ in What Amount of Money ACTUALLY creates a fun gaming experience   
    I would say a mid range computer capable of replicating console quality, as long as it's playable. Whether or not you have fun is what you take away from the games, not the hardware, as long as the hardware isn't limiting the experience that the game developers want you to have. I have a 9900K and Titan Xp, but I still find myself enjoying Stardew Valley alongside other AAA titles on my rig. Super Mario Party on the Switch is probably the most fun I've had lately, and that thing has the power of some random off-brand tablets. Building a PC beyond what's needed is more about being a hardware enthusiast and for tasks outside of gaming. But really, games are just a form of entertainment. If a movie sucks, watching it in 4K HDR won't help.

    Not a problem at all. I have the Phenom M which is the same case but different exterior panels and it can fit tons of fans. I would actually recommend the Phenom over the Prodigy because it completely gets rid of the unnecessary 5.25" bay and has room for 120x20mm fans inside the top panel. The Q300L is a fantastic case as well but the Phenom M occupies a smaller space.

    Not sure about euro prices, but a Lenovo 720S sells for about $800 here and seems to suit your needs. There are conflicting information on whether it's a x2 or x4, but I believe the 13" version uses x4 while 14" uses x2 from what I've read, although this article might prove interesting to you: https://www.notebookcheck.net/eGPU-Two-PCI-e-lanes-no-problem.266658.0.html
     
    I gave up on my quest for this mystical unicorn and just went with a MacBook Pro in 2017. Perhaps a used or refurbished 2016 or 2017 model would fit your budget. The Radeon Pro 560 in my 2017 15" is a little faster than the MX150. There still isn't anything out there with a better TB3 layout than Apple, even if they're a bit expensive. They do hold value better than PC laptops though so total cost of ownership isn't that bad if you're to sell it after a few years. We're all just waiting for Microsoft to pull their heads out of their asses and put TB3 on the Surfaces.

    NuclearPenske7 got a reaction from PASHKA in Witch RAM to pick in 2019   
    Pick the speed and timings and choose the one the costs less. If you're choosing between the two I'd go for the Corsair. It takes too much time and effort to overclock memory with no guarantee how high they'd go, especially in the mid range (around 2666-3200) where the small cost differences just don't warrant the trouble.

    NuclearPenske7 got a reaction from Juniiii in What does Valve need to do to "get back in the game"?   
    Invest into VR like they said they would. Last time they made a HMD they offloaded it to HTC for marketing and production. Their VR demo "The Lab" is nothing short of impressive, if they're to deliver full games like they said they would.

    NuclearPenske7 got a reaction from damelyngdoh in Ryzen Threadripper 2nd Gen for Workstation?   
    Might be worth looking into a Titan Xp depending on the exact applications. It still outperforms the 2080 Ti on average for workstation performance. I use Solidworks so it would be a downgrade for me to switch to a 2080 Ti.

    NuclearPenske7 got a reaction from TheFishBucket in New into gaming on PC   
    I just watched it and it's hardly an expert opinion. He's determining if a board is garbage based on the visual layout of VRMs and the heatsinks. Lots of generalization and speculation on certain boards based on his knowledge on other, completely different boards spec-wise. There's zero testing involved and he based his analysis of all B450 products on stock pictures. He doesn't even know which VRM components the manufacturers used and resorted to counting the number of things he sees in the pictures. Anyone can do that. That's not an expert opinion.
     
    I'm not defending any manufacturers since they all use same-tier components at this price range. Sure, you may squeeze out another 100-200 MHz with a $200+ board, but at that point you'd be much better off spending that extra money on a better GPU. Most of the criticism on cheap motherboards come from people trying to build high-end rigs around the cheapest boards, which this build clearly isn't.

    My rule of thumb is to always buy used if you're below budget for the newest generation midrange card, and that would be the RTX 2060 at $350. For $200-220, that's the current price point of used GTX 1070.
