  1. Razer Deathadder Chroma, Corsair K70 MX-Brown, Razer Goliathus Large Control mousepad, Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro with Beyerdynamic. If I don't like these peripherals, I would give them to my brother or a friend or give them away on /r/pcgaming.
  2. Have you checked whether there are any programs running in the background and swallowing up ram or other system resources? Are you running the latest version of the game and/or graphics card drivers? The 144Hz refresh rate purist in me says no.
  3. Have you tried using a digital cable? like DVI?
  4. I bought my GTX 980 at release, and at 1080P 144Hz its pretty good in most games on ultra. I won't get a new GPU until HBM2 at least. PS I mostly play CS:GO (475h), and a bit'o'GTA5
  5. No. You may find a M-ITX with an M.2 connector, which will have better performance than a SATA SSD.
  6. Similar map design, but completely different gameplay.
  7. It will struggle to play even simple games, but is great for watching youtube.
  8. It could be a vram problem. I had the same problem on a GTX 780 Ti.
  9. @QueenDemetria @manikyath @thekeemo Thanks for the reply. What is the lowest wattage core that will run a 10 slot 128 tick cs go server? Keep in mind that 1 thread is game logic and 1 thread is not fully used for networking. Apparently you only need about a gigabyte of ram per server.
  10. I'm planning on buying this: https://www.digitec.ch/de/s1/product/zotac-zbox-pi320-pico-intel-atom-z3735f-2gb-ssd-win-81-win-10-ready-pc-2753346?tagIds=615 with the intent of running a cs go server on it. 10-20 slots. Maybe other games, buy just cs for now. It runs a quad core Intel Atom Z3735F 1.83 GHz and 2 gigs of Ram. I will install linux on it to keep the overhead down. I'm looking at this because its dirt cheap and low power. Band isn't a problem (symmertical gigabit). Thanks in advance.
  11. I wouldn't say hat for most tasks the Skylake system is a noticeable amount better. If you wanna save a penny or two go for the Devils Canyon
  12. Hdmi up to 1.4 doesn't support refresh rates greater than 60Hz. You need to use a dp or dvi cable.
