  1. Well okay, my bad, but there's really no need to be so rude...
  2. Hi there, it all looks pretty good honestly! There are only a few minor things that could improve your build, if you have the budget for it. 1. The RAM could be changed out to a quad channel kit (4 sticks of 8GBs) to improve performance, unless you've chosen dual channel so there's breathing room to upgrade to 64GB total in the future? 2. The M.2 SSD is good for the price, but if you can afford a faster one then it's definitely worth looking into, although, again not a deal breaker whatsoever! 3. I'm sure the PSU you've picked is fine, but 80+ Gold is something to conside
  3. Cooler Master is also a good choice! Honestly any Cherry MX Red (or equivalent switches from Razer and Logitech) keyboard that you like the look of and also has good reviews in that price range is fine. It's mostly personal preference as there are many decent choices out there. Hope that helps! Keyboard brands worth looking at are: Corsair, Logitech, Razer, Steelseries, Asus, HyperX and Roccat
  4. For an extra $10 it's absolutely worth it, especially considering the price of the entire rig! If there's a Corsair or NZXT 240mm I'd recommend getting one of those over a 'Cyberpower' branded one as I'm not sure how good Cyberpower's AIOs are. External drives for gaming aren't ideal, external drives are normally slower than internal counterparts, but if you don't think you'll ever feel comfortable installing one internally then it's certainly better than nothing! In terms of a keyboard what sort of money are you looking to spend? And what sort of switch are you looking for? Consi
  5. Unfortunately, there aren't really any *many* pure white motherboards but this Asus B550 board might be the sort of thing you're looking for? If not then I'd suggest looking at this list on PCPartPicker, it shows a ton of X570 and B550 boards with the a white/black colour scheme. In terms of getting one that's ready with 5th Gen Ryzen straight out of the box, some boards will be compatible, however, if not then it doesn't have to be a deal breaker. Some Asus boards can have the BIOS flashed without a CPU or RAM, so should the board not be 5th gen compatible straight away, it can be
  6. Mostly looks good, however I would suggest a few changes. Firstly, the 120mm AIO is not a good choice, 120mm Liquid Coolers typically perform worse than decent air coolers. Either pick a 240mm AIO or an air cooler (if Cyberpower offer good ones, i.e. Noctua DH-15). Secondly, you will probably find that your 1TB SSD will fill up fairly quickly, Warzone alone is over 100GBs! At some point in the future I'd recommend getting a hard drive just so you have extra breathing space. There's not really any rush per se and you're probably better off buying one at a later date, if you feel co
  7. From what I can tell they are both very similar. The only difference seems to be that the 800-b has a 'slightly faster response time and a lower 60Hz input lag' according to rtings.com (taking into account that the 83a-b and the 850-b, (which is the monitor RT compares the 800-b with,) are essentially identical panels.) Honestly it probably just depends on which one is cheaper or which one has better reviews. If you haven't already try to watch as many reviews on YouTube for both panels! For what it's worth though, I have the LG 27GL850-B and it's a sensational panel
  8. As MildIrritant pointed out, that's not how most RMA's typically work, but I appreciate the reply either way! I bought it from amazon.co.uk less than a year ago, making it within warranty, even under British law (Brexit has made things confusing!) I just contacted Amazon and they have asked me to send it to them for a refund. Sabrent said that their refund window only lasts 6 months, even if the product dies, so that was refreshing. Interestingly, the Amazon customer service rep. I had a chat with tried to call Sabrent customer service, however the only phone number listed on
  9. Hi there, I suspect that my Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD has failed. Three nights ago, I got the 'WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR' BSOD, which locked my computer up completely and even the progress bar on the BSOD was still at 0% after 5 minutes of leaving it. However, as this SSD was used as my local disk, when I turned my PC back on it loaded straight into the BIOS and the M.2 drive was not recognised. I decided to reseat it and then try the other M.2 slot on my motherboard, however it came to the same result. Also, I tested a spare M.2 drive in both slots, which was recogni
  10. Hi, thanks for the reply, I have a standalone mic so I don't actually need a headset, I suppose. I definitely agree that Sennheiser would be the best soundwise as they, of course, have been working on their sound technology for years.
  11. Hi, I'm currently using a Plantronics Rig 500e and love it however I'm starting to hear a quiet crackling noise, so it looks like I'll need to get a near pair soon. I've been looking at the following headsets: Sennheiser PC37X from (Mass)Drop Arctis 7 2019 Arctis Pro 2019 (A little expensive but a possibility) Plantronics 500 Pro Esports Edition My current headset is really lightweight at 200g so I'd love another light headset as I have gotten used to it. My budget is around £150 ($188) but would be willing to spend up to £175 ($220) at the very mo
