  1. The eGPU I'm considering is about $250 and comes with a 550 W Power Supply as well as a Thunderbolt cable. I don't think I could realisticly get an equal CPU, 16gb of RAM, a case, a power supply, a motherboard, and 1.5TB worth of NVMe. I do still think going with the eGPU is a good call. It also means I can sell my 3000 series card when next gen cards come and still have a decent 1660 Ti to play off of inside my laptop while I'm waiting. Nobody has really answered my question yet . One person told me it was a good idea and one person told me it wasn't, but nobody has told me if I
  2. Hi all, I own an Aero 15 with a Thunderbolt 3 port on it. I'm looking at getting a 3000 series card sometime later down the line in an external GPU enclosure, and wondering how much sense it really makes. There's been a lot of discussion regarding the gen 3 vs gen 4 PCIe and the amount of performance you actually get. From what I understand, gen 3 graphics cards saw about a 10% drop in performance over thunderbolt because of the interface being 4x instead of 16x. I would like to do 1440p (4k in some games) 60fps with ray tracing turned on. In a desktop I believe the 3
  3. My setup is the exact same as the 5.1 you have pictured, except my sub is almost directly below the right front sattelite. Otherwise the spacing is pretty much the same.
  4. Arrived in the mail earlier this week and got to set it up today. I won't be moving into my new place until the end of next month, so the setup isn't perfect but still leagues better than my TV. The sound is incredible across the board. Really impressed that it can do lots of different music genres but also do solid with video games. Waiting on a digital optical cable that's arriving tomorrow to test it with my TV. Hoping that will sound good as I watch Alien Covenant in the evening. Didn't realize this. According to the labels on the sub and the instructions, the two additional satte
  5. Price dropped to $250 over the weekend on Amazon. That's a steal I didn't want to pass up, so I pulled the trigger. Hope it works out well!
  6. Will I have everything I need in the box, or will I need to buy any cables or anything?
  7. Any other options, or is the Z906 kinda the only one that comes close to my range? I'm up for it.
  8. I was looking at the 906 but steered away because a lot of the recent reviews said it was DOA or broke shortly after. Doesn't sound the most durable. Thoughts? What about the Polk TL1600? I found that one on Newegg and Amazon for $260, down from $400. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0043M666S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_YUVnFbYBPF4SA
  9. There's a lot of info here to sort through. Yes, I agree Bluetooth isn't a great choice. Quality is pretty bad from what I've read. Which of these options that you recommended would keep me below my $250 budget?
  10. There are clearly options though on Amazon and Walmart. There must be one that will work with my setup. I don't need the works. Just something that's gonna give me something better than my TV (which shouldn't be hard), and two rear nodes so I can hear stuff from behind. Is it really that expensive to do that?
  11. Edited the original post. Yes, it has optical out
  12. With the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on the horizon (no pun intended), and me getting a new apartment, I'm looking to get a 5.1 surround sound speaker setup. I have a Q6FN Samsung TV. During the PS5 announcement by Mark Cerny, it sounds like the PS5 will support this, but I've never had one before and am trying to find my best option. My initial thought was the Logitech Z606, but it looks like the only way to attach to the TV is via RCA. I don't think my TV has this as an output option. I don't have a multi thousand dollar budget, but can probably spend between $100 and $2
  13. I recently purchased a laptop with a Thunderbolt 3 port, and have heard it's possible to charge through this port. I have an extra fast charge wall wart from my old Galaxy S8, and was wondering if it'd be safe to plug a USB-c cable into it, and charge the laptop through this. I understand it definitely won't charge as quickly as with the included charger, but will it harm my computer in any way?
