    A CPU known for efficiency does not need a cooler this big. It is cheap, but still waste of money.
     
    do you need Wifi 6 this much?
     
    It's a bit slow
     
    Why 2 when you could use 1? Not even fast SSDs on their own.
     
    You dont need the high wattage, cheap for what it is but again pointless.

    Avocheeseado reacted to Skiiwee29 in Best black PBT keycaps?   
    IMO no.. I actually dont use mine because it has a horrible sound. The chassis bounces the spring ping suuuuuuper bad and is extremely annoying. You would be better off buying a barebones chassis like I did, the Glorious GMMK and getting the switches of your choice to use it and keycap set of your choice since it uses a full standard layout. This would cost you the same, if not slightly less depending on the switches you use. I personally went with Gateron Silent Brown switches which feel very good IMO. But you can get any switch that is Plate Mounted or PCB mounted and just clip the extra pins off that arent needed so you can get the switch of your choice.

    The logitech keyboard has a non standard 1.5u ctrl key and a 5.75u spacebar. I've seen some keycap sets with 1.5u ctrl keys (rare) but I've never seen a 5.75u spacebar. That's the impossible one.

    Left some money so you can try and pick up a used RX570 or 580, these tend to go for around $100-150 used but can depend on your area of course. Pretty much all GPU stock is non-existent at the moment so second hand is really the only option if you want to buy now. You could wait for stock and prices to start returning to normal, although no indication on when this is going to happen. I guess if you can deal with your laptop a little longer (which doesn't look terrible) you can get a new card.

    If you could do with this now, then you could always use an i5 10400 or 10500 with integrated graphics for now, and then add a graphics card when prices return to normal

    When I mentioned a quadro, I was aiming more toward like a P2000 series quadro, and most older quadros can be picked up for a fair price. A 1050ti should do the trick. The dvi could be run to the monitor with grade tracking software that doesn't need to be anything special.

    First of all, if you do not already have multiple monitors, I would 100% recommend it. It will make teaching online so much easier.
    For the PC, you don't need anything overkill. I use 16GB RAM and with Teams open, chrome, outlook, word, discord etc. at the same time, just over half of that is being used up.
    Here is the PC I would recommend.

This has a graphics card too, which is not super powerful but more than enough for streaming on teams, and running the meetings. It will be much better than any integrated graphics.
    I hope I could help!

    interesting name..? lol
    Chucking in a graphics card would help a lot. Something like a 3060ti (if you can find one in stock). GPUs are hard to come by right now but if you can't find an RTX 3060ti for under $500 (preferably $400-450) then look for a 2060 for under $350.

    I added a 500gb version of your SSD, the 3600, and your case. I don't really have the budget for the 1660 ti but I think the one I have should be enough for what I'm trying to do.

    Can you wait at all? Or does she need one right now. Also, this is probably overkill for your mother, unless the video and photo editing she is doing is serious quite demanding so if you want to save money, I would go with @Energycore's list. However, I would highly recommend waiting as $400 for a $200 GPU is just ridiculous.

    Avocheeseado reacted to HairlessMonkeyBoy in In the NR200P, which is better for performance, vertical GPU or standard layout? Does it really make a huge difference?   
    I'd go with standard. The GPU will pull fresh air in from the bottom. Plus with the standard orientation you'll have better compatibility with radiators and fans on the rear and side panel. But it probably won't make a huge difference.

    Avocheeseado reacted to jaslion in cooling ryzen 9 5900x with corsair a500   
    The a500 has quality issues as the coldplate varies a lot and is in general not flat leading to very poor heat transfer and cooling. So something like a sycthe fuma 2, ninja 5 or dark rock (pro)4 is more than plenty. Even a hyper 212 evo will do.

    So your schools are open in Norway? (*silently cries*)
    Anyway, from what I could see they were the same price. I would 100% go for the 2nd one as it has more storage (as 256GB will probably not be enough) and a better CPU.
    Here in the UK, the 2nd option has good reviews so I would go for that.

    Avocheeseado reacted to tishous in New build 2021 - £1,200 budget   
    If you go with a Ryzen 5 5600x (or if you're talking about the 5600 that will more than likely be released sometime soon) then you will get an included cooler, but if you go with the 5800x, then you'll need to buy an aftermarket cooler. In your case, I would go with the 5800x because of the video editing, which means you'll need a cooler. If you want nice aesthetics, perhaps a 240mm Corsair AIO would be a fitting option.
