  1. Like I said before, Bose Soundsports are nice, but they’re around $120. I don’t know of very many cheap options in Turkey, so I can’t really help. I’d try looking at Amazon or something similar and just read some reviews before you buy.
  2. I think that if that is a dealbreaker for you, then buying a gaming headset and then buying some earbuds would be your best bet. For a gaming headset, I’d go with these. For earbuds I’d go with Bose Soundsports, or if you have an iPhone, I’d consider AirPods, depending on your budget.
  3. Yes You can connect it via 3.5mm jack, but not wirelessly.

  5. Are you seeing ram being maxed out while in games? If so, it may be a good upgrade. If not, you could stick with your 8GBs.
  6. I’m back!! 

    So I said in a status update a while ago I was gonna downsize my desktop to a laptop...I may have spent all that laptop money on a Nintendo Switch instead. I had never played Breath of the Wild before, and a couple weeks back I was at a friends house and they let me try it out. I loved it so much I decided to get a Switch, but ran out of money so now I’ve gotta wait a couple weeks before getting BOTW. I'm excited to play it though!

      Nice! Also, since you bought it at around this time, this is a new hardware revision of the Switch--the Tegra X1 SoC inside was die-shrunk, giving you longer battery life.


      Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is also really nice.

    3. star_pilot475


      Yep, I knew about that hardware revision. I made sure I got the red box. I was planning on Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros all down the line. But Zelda must come first! ?

  7. This would! The 5700 XT trades blows with a 2070 Super, plus you get an ssd for fast boot. SSDs are essential nowadays, I wouldn’t build a pc without one.
  8. Edit: Throw a monitor in, and you’re still only a few bucks more than the original.

  10. I am back for a brief moment with big news...

    I have to sell my rig 


    my GPU is leaving me Thursday and the rest of it, I don’t know yet. 

    many will despise me but I must get something more portable...



    but on another note, I’m building a pc for a friend. He’s buying my GPU and paring it with a Ryzen 5 2600. This is his first build in like 10 years. He doesn’t really know what he’s doing anymore so most likely I’ll have to assemble the whole thing. This will be my first real build! Of course, it is somebody else's rig to be jealous of but whatever. 

    edit: when I came back today, I had 158 notifs...

  11. Well, I wasn’t very active on the forums last week because, well, my week (and the rest of this month) is hectic for me. 

    most likely you won’t see me very active for the rest of the month, but beginning November, things should calm down a bit. 

  12. @RobJInChiTown How does this look? It seems to tick most of boxes, but is right on the edge of your budget too. edit: alternatively, there’s this one too
  13. @NoFlo03 Here’s some adjustments to think about. That motherboard you originally had is overpriced, and just not worth the money. I opted for faster ram, as 3600MHz is known to be the "sweet spot" for Ryzen 3000. You can use the Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic Razer, but I was just giving you some options on cases. Also, I opted for a cheaper 4tb SSD, as well as a different boot drive that can take advantage of PCIE Gen4 (as well as being comparable in price to the Samsung) The 10TB drive that you originally had is fine, I just didn’t see it right away on PCPP.

  14. Have you looked into air coolers instead? For the price of a decent 120mm AIO, you can get a pretty nice air cooler. Maybe something like this?
