  1. Tips and reviews and also, of course, "Buy Stuff at Newegg" GPU, mobo, case and etc recommendations.
  2. Looking for suggestions for some computer speakers. Preferably something I can pickup at Best Buy today, but open to ordering online if it's worth it. I have headphones, but during the day I don't like wearing them and tend to miss a lot of skype, discord and other notification sounds so need to get a speaker setup. They'll mostly be used for general sounds, you-tube, some music and that's about it, if gaming I'd have my headset on. I generally prefer Bose equipment, but again open to other suggestions. Does anyone actually use speaker setups created for the computer anymore or just prefer buying home speakers and syncing them up?
  3. Hey guys, I know there is a lot of knowledge to tap into here in the SCB forums. I have had a few conversations with close friends about their opinions and knowledge on various current hardware and want to continue hearing what I should aim for. This is all for a new rig. I am going with a budget of $4,000 for the tower. This is going to be a gaming computer, so I am looking for high performance and graphics integrity. The tower is going to support three 30" 2k monitors (I don't think 4k is in reasonable price range yet). Case: Still looking - want something that is visually appealing (show off cooling/components) CPU: i9 or Ryzen? (Friends suggest the Threadrippers) Discussions I saw here on SCB say i7 is good for SC - I am still learning what the differences are between all options RAM: 32GB or I just may go to 64GB because reasons (memory is so cheap!) SSD: Samsung M.2 2TB (Samsung 960 PRO?) - looking to have more M.2s connected in the future, maybe one (smaller) that is SC only HDD: Looking for a mass storage (maybe 10TB) array in a RAID parity, can come later (months) after initial build Motherboard: Looking at a GIGABYTE one - something that gives me the versatility I am looking for GFX: 1080Ti (x2) - looking for 2k at 100+ FPS (3 monitors) Cooling: I want to go all liquid cooling, maybe multiple circuits. PSU: I have not looked into a power supply yet, waiting to see what the rest demands with room to add more stuff later. Again, this is early in developing what I want and I am always welcome to suggestions. I want this thing to be upgradeable, particularly to add to it (M.2 SSDs and HDs for example). I already have keyboard, mouse, HOTAS, and G27 to plug into this thing. Looking forward to see what the minds in SCB present!
  4. Finally finished. Everything plugged in and set up. Fan speeds were finely tuned and I'm happy with the results. Got the whole RGB thing going, so I can fit in with the cool kids 😁. Yes, that is a G600 MMO Mouse from my Star Wars the Old Republic early days, found it at the bottom of old hardware boxes in the garage (works like a charm still after all these years). Just in time for 3.0. Also, does anyone know how I can get back to Imperium team speak? Is there a link within the forums? Here's some pics and specs: -I5-7600k unlocked ( would have wished to overclock - but too scared to take the plunge ) -Asus Strix B250h mobo ( besides, i don't think this supports OCing ) -Kingston 2133 8gb Ram (nothing fancy) -Intel m.2 ssd 128gb -Western Digital 2tb blue 7200rpm (i think) -H55 AiO ( yes i know, but this is great for a novice like me for the first time) -Cooler Master CX 550m bronze 80+ semi modular -2x cooler master jet flo 120mm fans (options of quiet/max performance 3pin adapters) -Cooler masterbox lite 5 case with 1x 120mm pre-installed fan. -Monitor is a asus 23.6" led 5ms 1920x1080 -Keyboard is from the cooler master masterkey s lite until i get my hands on a red mech kb -Any questions feel free to ask! 😁 Ps. Im looking forward to my next build!
  5. I am looking on how to upgrade my gaming experience, under a budget of $500.00. Here are my current stats. Operating System: Windows 8.1 Processor: Intel Core i5 - 3330 CPU@ 3.00GHz 3.00GHz RAM 8 GB System 64 bit. Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 640 Harddrive Memory: 904 GB Power Supply: Unknown, but known that it is maxed out on current Graphics card Maker: Gateway Motherboard: DX4870
  6. Alright, I know I have a different thread about SSD's, i'm sorry if this counts as spam, but this is a somewhat different topic, so I thought it deserved a different topic. My current computer is essentially 5 years old. I originally wanted to upgrade to a new processor, as I have an old 3rd Gen. i5-3570k 3.4ghz processor. However, obviously the problems that came up are that my motherboard is not compatible with modern intel processors, so I need to upgrade that too. This brought up ANOTHER problem. All of my RAM is currently DDR3, and all of the motherboards that I am seeing that are compatible with the most recent processors, require DDR4 RAM. So, below i've listed what I currently have, and what I think i'm going to upgrade to after doing a bit of researching. I believe everything is viable, but I absolutely welcome suggestions or comments. 16GB DDR3 RAM Current motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 6 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157295 Thought for new motherboard: GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128835&ignorebbr=1 New Processor: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0136JONG8/ref=psdc_229189_t3_B012M8LXQW?th=1 - Decided on 3.4 since it is cheaper, and apparently less likely to overheat without water cooling Current RAM: 4 4GB G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 Thought for new RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231929 Also, while this isn't so much of a hardware question, I was curious about cases. I currently have a Rosewill Challenger Mid-Tower http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147153 - it is a decent case, but I now have a Geforce 980ti, and am looking to go into SSD's (this case was not designed for 2.5" compatibility). Would anyone suggest anything for a new case, or to keep the one that I have? I know that the new motherboard will fit in the space, but it is pretty tight with the GPU that I have. I was looking at either the ThermalTake MK-1 > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133191&ignorebbr=1 Or the COOLER MASTER HAF932 or HAFX (still not entirely sure what the differences are between them, aside from slight size difference, and side panel. I really appreciate any input. I know that i've been harassing you all a bit with requests for input with parts and such, but I don't want to build the wrong build, as this will be the first time I do any sort of upgrade to my PC. I built the original, but it has been 5 years, so I am far from a pro, and i've been out of the loop for awhile.

    Hey, guys. I've been using headphones with my desktop since I built it a little over a year ago and whilst I'm very happy with things as they stand I thought I might look into getting some speakers for my desktop. I'm looking for something high-quality, price isn't too big of an issue and preferably aesthetically pleasing. Any suggestions? What do you guys use?
  8. So I was messing around on PCPartPicker.com and I've had a build for awhile now I was going to do for next year, but I recently just did another one that was Micro-ATX and they came up at around the same price. My question is, which one is better? They're practically identical in specs and price... (gpu's are just a placeholder for pascal gpu's launching next year) Full Size Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Donut310/saved/GQ4Pxr Micro-ATX Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Donut310/saved/rhJQzy

    Today is a sad day my friends... My computer is buggered T.T I let my brother use it for about 20 minutes, then he said there was a virus. If you could show your support somehow, it would be much appreciated ^^ *Sorry about the mic quality*
  10. Howdy Base! I am trying to get a new computer for Star Citizen (especially since the AC multiplayer s starting), but am interested in advice and feedback! I am currently looking at a DIY kit from NewEgg.com that I think would work well. Any thoughts? http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1665069 Also been thinking of buying an Alienware, but not sure if they're worth the money anymore. I do like them, and they've always worked well for me in the past, and I'm more comfortable with a professionally built machine then doing it myself (since I've never done it before), but still not sure they're worth the price for the power I want. I would buy a second RAM stick for the above machine as well as a SSD. I don't think it comes with an operating system so I'll have to spend more for the software I need but that's the easy part. The hard part is the hardware and getting it all to work. If anyone has other ideas on parts I could use or if someone wants to help me build it, I'd be glad for the help. See you in the 'verse!
  11. so i went to steam and got the demo for 3D benchmark here is my results http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/3152181? i got a score of 11549 it would be cool to compare with other peoples steups.
  12. Hi everyone, Hopefully this is the right sub-forum for this topic. I have a netbook, iPad, Windows Surface, and a laptop that I use for Netflix and work, but I lack a powerful computer that can handle video games with high-end graphic. I am going to start medical school this August and I do not entertain the idea of a gaming desktop, as I will probably be moving around for the next decade. I like to search for a gaming laptop and I want to know if you guys can offer some advise (like what brand should I go for, what is the best time to buy, etc.) My budget is below $2000. Thanks! Good hunting. P.S. No Alienware : P
  13. So...I am planning to build a new computer and have heard good things about both of these CPUs, which do you guys think would be better for Star Citizen and why? I have heard that the Intel cpu is higher-quality and runs faster, but the AMD cpu has 8 cores, which could be useful (since SC will be able to use 8 cores). What are the advantages and disadvantages that you see? (other than the price tag) Here are links to both... i7-4770k - http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646i74770k FX-8350 - http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd8350frhkbox
  14. So my computer is about 6 years old with an awesome Radeon 4800 GPU. Turns out my computer wont even run the game, and all im wanting to do right now is get into the hanger module. Looks like im gonna have to buy a whole new computer within the next year, which makes my itsy bitsy account cry. Was wondering how many people out there were in the same boat as me and what they plan on getting in regards to hardware. Also, does anyone know CPU intensive SC will be or is all the number crunching just going to just be offloaded onto the GPU?
