  1. Those elves are going to melt to death. Or possibly just get really gross with mineral oil.
  2. The rebate is most likely provided by the manufacturer, so it'll still be there even when the product goes off sale on newegg. You're fine.
  3. The mail in rebate will last though the sale. The name implies that you get it in the mail (even if it's online, that's just how they used to work), they're not going to put a time limit on it.
  4. Typically, you send off the rebate after you get your item, as the rebate comes with your item. I don't see how you could have the rebate without buying the product? Could you possibly look at your receipts and see if it lists your product's serial number? The rebate will still work after Newegg's sale ends.
  5. Tbh, corsair vengeance is priced pretty reasonably. In USD, there's a $20 difference between the RGB and non-RGB models. Keep in mind, the 8600k is on a different socket type than that of your current cpu, so you will be needing a new mobo as well.
  6. I'll look around. I keep linking PC part picker for a reason, it's a pretty useful resource. I'd try looking for stuff there.
  7. So from what I'm piecing together, this is a VR-intended rig for work, which needs to be small format for portability, and you need multiple PCI slots on the board for various cards? You may have to jump over to an intel CPU to get what you want. An intel i5-8600k will give you very similar performance to the Ryzen 2700x, for a similar price. It sounds like you're in development work for VR, the 8600k will be enough to run VR games and do all the compiling you need. The main benefit to the Ryzen CPUs is multi-core performance, which doesn't really show in games anyways. The 8600k has a fast
  8. I think they still need an extra PCI slot after WiFi for a VR headset adapter of some sort? And the USB hub. All the ITX/ac boards are only going to have 1 PCIe x16 slot for their GPU.
  9. @Jurrunio is right on the money. Unfortunately, ITX boards are usually more expensive. I'm used to building budget so I'm coming into this at a bit of a different angle. Not sure what card you're talking about? I would recommend something from this list. All ryzen chips can be overclocked, so they both can be overclocked. X just overclocks more.
  10. So what do you need in total? For the USB 3.0 you can find a case with USB3 front I/O and use a Mobo with a few USB 3.0 in the rear, that shouldnt be an issue. So you need one slot for a wifi adapter, one for the vive? Was talking about the wifi card, not GPU.
  11. Yeah, i think there's just some confusion on the boards. Like Jurrunio said, most mATX boards have multiple PCI slots. Unless your card needs a full-length PCIe x16 slot? Is that what you're saying?
  12. I think he's just looking for mATX boards that have multiple PCI slots for both the graphics card and WiFi card. (Also you keep beating me to these posts. I might need to get off my phone and actually go to my desk ?)
  13. You sure? Check PC Part picker, there's plenty of them available. MSI B360M Pro MSI Z370M Mortar Gigabyte B360M Or, get a board with built in wifi, like a MSI Z370M AC.
  14. Seems like a good plan, but depends on what you're focusing on. Any modern i5 equivalent CPU worth it's salt will be a good upgrade, but you want to try to squeeze the most out of this upgrade to prevent having to come back and upgrade again later. If you go ryzen, try to stretch for the 2700 or 2700X. If not, get an 8600k or try to stretch the extra for an 8700k. You'll get better single-core (gaming) performance from an 8600k, but the 2700 will give you a nice boost for your photo editing. I'd recommend the 8600k outright, but I'm a bit of an Intel purist so take that
