  1. Like it says on the cover, one of my fans died on my 570 and I need a replacement. All the ones online use a 3-point mount for the screws, but the stock use 4 screws. Anyone know a good place to get them? Sorry if this belongs in troubleshooting!

  3. Budget (including currency): $1800-$2200 Country: U.S.A. Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Overwatch, lot of random multiplayer games off of steam, learning some coding, video editing, 3d modeling Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): So, I had the intention to build a new PC for myself in 2021, in the Phanteks P500A DRGB. Then, when it arrived early off of backorder, I found out that it can fit not just a
  4. A web show I like is doing open auditions for a couple of characters, and I'm planning on throwing my hat in the ring. For now, all I have is a USB condenser mic that came with my Mic stand. It sounds really good to me on playback, although there's a noise floor I set the recording volume in windows to be above ~75%. The thing is, everywhere I'm looking for tips on voice recording says "NO USB MICS! NOT PROFESSIONAL! IF YOU USE A USB MIC FOR VOICE ACTING, I WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND SH** IN YOUR CEREAL!" /s I want to know *why* they're so bad, but everywhere I go for explanations,
  5. ngl you end every post with "..." and it's really bugging my brain
  6. Yeah, I might do that if I can get a decent deal on the power supply, but I'm trying to give them 80+gold and some wattage headroom to upgrade the GPU later, and prices still aren't great for PSUs
  7. Thanks! I actually have one friend looking for just gaming, and one who's starting animation&modeling classes next semester, so looks like I'll build one of each. Appreciate the breakdown!
  8. that's not really a relevant answer.... I'm looking for advice on the part selection, not a compatibility checker, I'm already using that
  9. Since the R3 3300x is available just about nowhere, is it worth it to pay $110-$120 for a R3 3100 instead? I'm putting together 2 low-budget systems for a couple of buddies, and I'd hoped to get them the 3300x, but it's ofc never available. I don't know too much about how to shop for cheap on the intel side, so if anyone has some tips on that I'd be very grateful!
  10. I appreciate it! I'm mostly going to use it for Overwatch, that's my main game these days, so if IPS is needed for curve to look good, I'll probably just stick to a flat TN panel for the response time.
  11. Ok, that makes sense. I'll try to see one in person first then, thanks! saved me a 2am google, my man, you're a hero
  12. Like I said, 1440p @ 144Hz is my goal, and then I'll have a 1080p75Hz on both sides of it. I'm also planning on upgrading my gpu around the end of the year, once both brands new cards are out and a little tuned up
  13. This is a pretty solid list, a pretty good mix for value/performance! I do have 3 suggestions: -You can definitely get an NVME ssd in your price range without losing any value/storage, like this one It's a couple of extra bucks, but you get a nice speed bump and its easier to install - just my preference -Liquid cooling an i5 isn't really going to grant you a big bump, you could do just as well with this air cooler here. Making that swap could let you upgrade to a 1660TI and get a bit more power -Your case only has one included fan, and if you end up lookin
