  1. So weird..everything I wrote in....I want to say Spanish? No idea. I would honestly rather get Silverstone's SG13 now. Build quality is worse, but not too bad and you can fit longer GPUs.
  2. ...that's just how the case is built. I really don't like that very much and I was already thinking about modding it to be flat. I really don't have the time to build something myself (would like to put it into an ammo case though and I have an M56 danish ammo box here), and I really have not found a case on the market that I want. Either too big or too small with too many compromises. Nevertheless, I have switched the PSU to an SFX unit which enabled me to add a 120mm fan to the CPU cooler and now the build is actually pretty quiet.
  3. I guess you could go for DTX. Basically you could probably go for a short GPU that is thicker than two slots. Not entirely shure what you are looking for though.
  4. So i was a bit bored and wondered if I can stick a full tower cooler in my Elite 110...


  5. Buying Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is kinda like buying a new car that is so f***ed up that it can't be driven home...

      Rockstar has greatly disappointed us all :/

  6. New camera: Fuji X100T 

    It is so good.

  7. I love my new monitors. I have spent numerous hours editing photos already and despite knowing that the U2419Hs are not perfect, I still enjoy them very much. I am after all just an amateur photographer and these monitors are advise enough and just overall a pleasure to use. 


  8. I am not 100% sure what you are trying to achieve, but you should never push your CPU to 100% for gaming, at least not all the time. Yes, an RX 570 as well as the 1050 will be able to run at 100% without maxing out your CPU, but that is a good thing. Your system is also running in the background, maybe an update, afterburner or fraps... whatever the case may be. A desirable state of your PC under load is that the GPU is maxed out and not bottlenecked, but the CPU still has some room for extra additional loads.
  9. Two U2419Hs. I wanted a two screen setup, mostly for productivity purposes and I love it.
  10. Just wondering how they are? I know the 2414 was well liked, as was the 2417. I want to switch to a more productivity oriented setup for work, the occasional photo edit, as well as some (not primarily) gaming. I also want two separate displays. Not one ultrawide. I had that and it was amazing for gaming, but for work it was a bit meh for me. Preference. All about preference I guess. I have the chance to get two used 2419s ones with warranty for 230 total and I cannot think of a reason not to do it...so? Any input?
  11. Yeah, so the title basically says it all. I am looking for a display that is reasonably color-accurate and good enough to game on. I want to edit more photos and that is why I want to switch, but I also still like to game now and then. Price up to 300ish is OK. Obviously, if THE ULTIMATE display is like 320 that would also be perfectly fine. I have been looking at so. Many different monitors and was hoping for people who might actually have something like this. Edit: stuff I thought about was Lg34um69g Lg27ud58 Lg29um69g Dell U2417H Dell U271
  12. My brother actually ordered this for me for Christmas as a little gift. ?


  13. So before anyone screams "get a 5D MK IV": I want to up my photo quality a bit. Currently using an EOS 100D with a few lenses of decent quality. I was looking at the 80D and it seems like a logical upgrade from my 100D due to the lenses, but I found that a classic 6D is also quite affordable and I was told that low-light performance is quite good as well as the possibility to print images larger than usual. The lack of focus points is not really an issue for me, as I usually only shoot using the center point anyways. I know that the features in the 80D are better, but I
