  1. I have specked out a parts list for you. You can click on this link to view it: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/2024jrb1/saved/#view=4dcTYJ Explanation: Ryzen 7 over Intel: The Ryzen 7 processer blows the current gen Intel out of the water(even more so the 8th gen which is pretty dated now). Here is a comparison chart. Ram: 32 is bigger and it is faster. Motherboard: Need a Ryzen compatible motherboard. Monitor: no change HDD: added a 2tb HDD for storage. GPU: went with the newer 30 series from NVIDIA. You may need to do some hunting though because it i
  2. From what I know, it will work, but it is very overkill and expensive. What I would do is get a new router with more bands and with newer technology (like this one).
  3. Hi, my Crestron prodigy controller recently fried, and I am trying to find a good replacement that wont burn a hole in my wallet. My house has 2 levels and I need about 40 switches and 10 lamps to be controlled. I would just replace the controller but I would like to be able to use google homes and an app that is not $100. I am open to all suggestions, but from my research smart light solutions can get high in price, especially with the number of lights I have in my house. I may get some for my theater room but that is a different topic. Thanks for any suggestions.
  4. Hi, I have recently been playing some Minecraft with some friends. They use facetime, and I am wondering if there is a way that I could pipe the audio into my pc so I could listen to it on my headset and use my mic. Is there a way to do this? Also just audio is needed. I would use discord but not everyone has it. Phone: iPhone 6s
  5. What is your budget? If the trends are the same as when the 1660 came out, new cards may be on the way next year, and possibly with rtx. If you can afford it you can get a 3060ti, which should last a long time.
  6. It is definitely a Cryoring, but which one I don't know. If you really like the cooler, get the bracket that fits and you will be good to go. My recommendation is going with the stock AMD wraith prism cooler, as it should have the same performance and it is made for the AM4 boards. Temps should be just as good.
  7. My budget is in the $100 USD range. I have heard allot of good things about the Zilents but they are quite expensive. I was thinking about the Corsair Shift with silent reds (Eww cherry though), but would rather have something with a tactile switch.
  8. I am in the market for a new mechanical keyboard and am wondering what a good quiet keyboard is. I currently have a Ducky one 2 full size with cherry browns, and my boss said that it is too loud. What is a good keyboard that is almost as silent a rubber dome and full sized? Edit: needs to be mechanical
  9. Title sais it all. I play Minecraft PvP and want to replace the switches on my Glorious model D but I wanted to make sure the switch can double click / double bounce before I get some.
  10. I mean when you hit your mouse once and it registers two clicks. Most mice have dbounce software, because most games don't need high cps.
  11. It helps when some servers have crappy anti cheats and cancel your hits. Also there are some bridging techniques that need high cps like god bridge or moonwalk.
  12. Hey, I come from the small Minecraft 1.8 PvP community. In the game you need to try to get high cps so you can try to get the first hit. Glorious mice are great for this because you can lower the D bounce timer and get really high cps with double clicks (about 15-25 cps). Does anyone know if you can double click on the model O wireless? Thanks. Also this is a good video of someone butterfly clicking.
  13. Hello, I am helping a friend who needs a new laptop. They use quickbooks for accounting and I was going to tell them to get the new M1 macbook air, but I am unsure that it is fully functional even ruining through rosetta. I know that that is not a common question but just wanted to make sure that it works before telling them to buy something that may not work. Thanks Penguin
  14. HI, I am looking to upgrade my pc. I have 2x Arous GTX 1080ti 11g (in sli), and I am thinking of getting rid of them for a 3080 or maybe a 3090. My cpu is a Ryzen 7 3700x though, and I am thinking that it might be better to upgrade to the 5000 series AMD cpus. What do y'all recommend? Would the 3700x bottleneck a 3080 or 3090?

  15. Not the ssd the hdd. He picked a 4tb Toshiba, and you can get a better drive like this one. https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-BarraCuda-Internal-Drive-3-5-Inch/dp/B07D9C7SQH/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=4TB+Seagate&qid=1606751436&sr=8-3 They are more expensive but from my experience they last longer. Also Segate recovered all of my data when my nas drive died.
