  1. I get these notifications in the email - lots of great deals to be found for RAM, SSDs, etc Newegg and Microcenter, sometimes PNY, mostly Newegg, though, really! get moar stuff, NO REALLY!! buy buy buy!! good deals on SSDs, DDR4 RAM, next gen Intel CPUs And if you want help kitting out a computer, use pcpartpicker If you want help building a computer, there are loads of videos on newegg and youtube (for instance just go to Youtube and search for "build a gaming computer" and you'll get lots of options to view.)

    Ongoing Discussion Virpil Controls

    Virpil recently posted their 2 years in review where they also announced they'll be releasing their new WarBRD grip on 23rd January 2019. This is their current lineup of products where you see: WarBRD Base with a Constellation Delta Grip Desk Mount MT-50 Throttle MT-50 base(now discontinued) with a MT-50CM Grip Pictures of the new WarBRD grip: Its specs are: Dual Stage Trigger 1 x 8-way POV Hat (+ Push) 2 x Momentary Push Buttons 4-Way (+ Push) Thumb Hat All Metal Twist Axis with VPC Contactless Sensor Configurable Mode LED So it basically has 2 hats with push, 2 buttons, dual stage trigger and a twist axis with contactless sensor. It looks like a good space sim grip for me even it lacks in the button/hat department a bit. I plan to pick it up when I can in combination with a WarBRD base and recently released cosmosim no center cams for WarBRD base. VPC products tend to be out of stock yet they restock every 2-3 weeks and sell out in hours. If you're interested in picking one, you might need to set an alarm to their restocking schedule. Their next restock will be on 7th January 2019, 6 AM - 9 AM GMT.
  3. GRAPHICS Radeon VII 16GB HBM 2 memory cost around $320
  4. I have as another hobby, Photography. Both of my monitors are IPS. I can calibrate the color using the ColorMunkie Smile which I bought on sale for $80 a few years ago. It's worth the money.

    Ongoing Discussion DIY from Newegg

    Tips and reviews and also, of course, "Buy Stuff at Newegg" GPU, mobo, case and etc recommendations.
  6. Coming out soon. Value priced? GRAPHICS Nvidia preparing three new GTX graphics cards
  7. I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better. Cost for the 2700X - $280 Cost for the i9-9900K - $500 Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users. Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.
  8. I was looking at cooling solutions and Arctic Cooling is selling these for $50
  9. These people did a blind test to try to find out: Pretty interesting how it turned out.
  10. I recently purchased a GTX1070ti and then they come out with the RTX2070. Do I feel gipped? price of the RTX2070 compared to the GTX1070ti: lowest seen prices: $550 vs $360 Nope, not at all. Sure, the 2070 has GDDR6 mem over the GDDR5 the 1070ti has, but the hardware points I worry about have negligible differences. Granted, while the RTX does not depend on CUDA cores so much (the nature of Ray Tracing), I'm not one for the new bells and whistles if I do not have a practical need for them. The above link is just one comparison and I just focused on the technical specs and not actual performance. This second link is a start for that. The benchmarks show a 78% increase in multi-rendering over the 1070ti. The RTX2060 may be someone else's entre to the RTX world, but I have avoided the 60-series nvidia cards as consumer level performance GPUs. Nothing surprising in this graphic: I am not authoritative....

  12. Their stock slid from $290 to $150 due to those returned gpu PCBs.
  13. Well who would of expected this. Which one will you be buying? My eye is on the 3700X This is really good news for Star Citizen if we can give the devs more reasons to produce more code for more cores!
  14. AMD has a utility program that will help you do many things with the Ryzen and Threadripper chips - like turn off hyperthreading (the core disable feature) to give you better single core performance. AMD Rysen Master Utility User guide (pdf downloadable)
  15. Gigabyte's Aorus RGB DDR4 kit fills those empty DDR4 slots You'll have to have the headers for them. So, I think that they're $40 each.
  16. UIV, VKB owner and chief engineer, has dropped a little sneak peek on another forum, and since it's out in the open now, here's a couple of teaser images of the VKB Kosmosima SCG (Space Combat Grip). Of course, it's also very much usable in DCS. Please be aware that this is not an announcement, but a little something to see for those that have been waiting for the Kosmosima design to be revealed: A few key points of info I was given so far: - Comes in both left- and right-handed versions (SCG-L and SCG-R) - Both have a contactless twist adapter built-in by default (can be hard-locked via screw) - Compatible with Gunfighter and Gladiator Pro bases - Both have two LED indicators; one single-color, the second RGB (operation of the LED indicators can be customized via software) - Both have dual-stage triggers - All hat switches on both grips have push functionality, and one can toggle between analog/digital mode via long push - Both come with a detachable palm rest - Planned retail price is less than $99 (per grip) Please be aware that I don't have any further info and details at this time (and no ETA). Once I get more updates down the line, I will try and keep everyone informed. Source: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=3539012#post3539012
  17. https://hothardware.com/news/nvidia-stealthily-launches-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-gddr5x This could be another option for players wanting to extend their PC gaming rig dollars. I stopped using the GTX-60 series cards, finding the GTX-70 series cards better overall for gaming. I'll look for a comparison chart for 1070's later GeForce_GTX_1060_Chart.webp
  18. I predict that the FOIP webcam that Faceware will be selling will be pricier than most backers want to pay - I'm thinking it will bump around $200 give or take. To be worth the purchase, a webcam shouldn't peg above $100 I'm thinking. You can use cheaper webcams, but they will be plagued with no low-light capability and FPS speeds not to your liking WRT to FOIP. I've seen faceware's video and photos showing how much better it is in low light. Grain of Salt, imho So, there's the Logitech C920 (discontinued but available for and C922 ($70-$80) - both very good but require a light source if you're a gamer playing in just monitor light. Streamers like them, but they tend to use studio-type lighting. https://www.bestadvisor.com/webcams/logitech-c920-vs-logitech-c922 ASccording to reviews, the C920 ($50 on Amazon) could capture 1080p or 720p at 30fps. The C922 Pro Stream ($100), however, can do either 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps) (The logitech Brio is $200) Razer has an option with it's own ring light (very nice for when you only have the light from your monitors) for $100 and it also handles 1080p/30fps and 720p/60fps with a 4:3 aspect ratio--> https://www.razer.com/gaming-broadcaster/razer-kiyo (order from Razer and it's free shipping)

  22. This will be a different thread than the computer parts threads I normally post in. This one will have a listing of specific accessories that you can use AFTER you get your rig built and want to jazz it up a little bit. First up: Computer and Gaming Console case filters: http://www.demcifilter.com/ I use these and they're great. make sure that you check to see that you get magnet frames in case you have a case with a plastic vent. Next: coolers for CPUs CPU, GPU and Case cooling Standard coolers can be found at the same sites for CPU's, GPUs and cases. Of course, Case manufacturing companies tend to have their own case fans. MOAR air is always the best way to go, just make sure to filter. I've used the Antec H2O with a single fan radiator on my OC'd FX-8350. Now I'm using an Arctic Cooling 240mm 4x120mm fan cooler on the same CPU in the Corsair 540 Air case. Again, make sure you filter your incoming air to keep the radiators clean. Not sure if this is a complete listing. Arctic Cooling; Closed loop coolers (top of the list of CPU coolers) Noctua Gamerstorm NZXT Silverstone Enermax Fractal Design Corsair Thermaltake Antec be quiet! Alpenfohn Cryorig solutions Coolermaster, air, liquid, and standard EVGA power link adapter for cable management the product manual: http://www.evga.com/support/manuals/files/PowerLink_Manual.pdf

    Ongoing Discussion New build

    I am getting ready to build another PC due to the fact that my current rig is going on 4 yrs old (still solid) and I am passing it on to my kids so they can start to dabble in the PC realm. My current rig is a mini ITX. Although it was fun, I'm going back to a micro ATX mid tower size. New build - CPU- Intel i7-8700k Cooler - NZXT Kraken X62 Rev2 Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z370-G Gaming (mATX) Memory - Corsair Vegnance RGB Pro 16gb DDR4-3000 Storage - Samsung 860 Evo 1TB GPU - Asus GTX 1080 8gb ROG STRIX , but if new cards pop soon might swap. Case - Corsair Crystal 280X RGB mATX mid tower PSU - Corsair HX Platinum 750w Also gonna grab a 32" ultra wide to pair up with a 27" So this will be a RGB build with most of the components having that feature. I want to build a solid rig but not trying to max anything out this time around as I will probably do another build in a few years. Will throw up some pics once its done.
