  1. 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)
  2. 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.)

  7. 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!

  10. 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

    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.
  12. Report from the [H] here: https://www.hardocp.com/article/2018/03/08/geforce_partner_program_impacts_consumer_choice Over the years, AMD fanbois have accused me of ignoring Nvidia's supposed anti-competitive practices. The thing is, when I looked into them, they were referencing AMD-slanted web sites with not-even conspiracy-theory rated "evidence". There was no truth to it, they were either citing perfectly legal practices as illegal or citing what is now known as "fake news"... stuff someone made up. This time, Nvidia appears to be pulling an Intel or Microsoft. An actual anti-competitive practice that the courts have proven won't end well (although to be fair, Microsoft and Intel are doing just fine today). I think an up-welling of moral outrage is justified. Its a shame that AMD doesn't have a viable GPU competitor to the GTX 1080, or better yet, its followup due at the end of the year (because that's the likely timeframe of my next upgrade).
  13. Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC. Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making. Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline. Cant wait to see what you guys are running!

  14. Mates, My voice attack seems to have shit the bed and cannot activate the M$ speech recognition even though I can use the speech recognition for other things without VA running. VA won't launch at all because it says: "VoiceAttack - Windows Speech Recognition Engine Error An error has occured while trying to initialize the speech recognition engine VoiceAttack will now close" any help will be appreciated. (and yes, "run as administrator" is selected) The app ran last month. But not after downloading the new beta.
  15. https://virpil.com/en/shop/grips/vpc-constellation-delta-vpc Just saw this bad boy show up, its ambidextrous so would make for a great HOSAS item, too. I don't have any peripherals beyond a keyboard/mouse yet, so with the scroll wheel and analog stick on the stick it could work as a 1 unit solution. Has anyone tried a joystick and mouse for gimball aiming in SC?

    Ongoing Discussion Saitek x55 and x56

    Anyone know what's going on with those 2 hotas? My x52 broke and was looking for a replacement/step up. None of my local store have it in stock and Best buy Fry have it listed D clearance, but both was out of stock also....
  17. AMD Ryzen 5 2400G CPU and Gaming Benchmarked on Livestream It appears that the Ryzen 5 2400G actually ships with the Wraith Stealth (a 65w cooler) despite being communicated that it would be shipping with a 95w cooler (Wraith Spire) (gremlich note: this seems odd)

  20. If you like many are in the process of building a machine powerful enought to play Star Citizen, and require build guidance. This page may help you choosing the right hardware to give you a decent and enjoyable experience in the PU going forward. As time goes forward i'll update this post with current and new specs as time pass's. CPU 8 Core+ With the latest open dev interview at Citizencon, we have word from the horse's mouth (CIG graphics engineering dev), that this game will indeed favour Threads > IPC. Meaning a CPU with more cores will in general give you better performance. "Multicore is the key though, going wide (more threads) is the direction we're going, it's where everyone is going like high end I7's and I9's there's plenty of bandwidth there". Currently people on 3.0 are reporting that 4C/4T CPUs are struggling with the 3.0 PTU, so suggesting an I5 is foolheartedly at this point in time. It's hard to even recommend a 6 core with Hyperthreading from both vendors, simply because the industry standard in 2018 will be 8 cores and 16 threads. Mainly thanks to Intel releasing there Z390 boards 1st half of 2018 with support for 8 core CPU's. As Well as Ryzen and which there new refresh that's scheduled to release around Feb 2018. Be careful if you are considering a Z370 motherboard! As this is more than likely a dead end platform much like the Kabylake Z270's just after 6 months. As they are not supported on Coffee lake hardware (considering they technically should be by an ASUS dev interview), as Z390 is designed for 8 cores, so you can realistically bet that your Z370 motherboard won't support the 8 core later on, if history is anything to go by. Ram 16gigs+ (32gigs if possible) 3.0 is capable of chewing a heavy 12.5 - 15.5 gigs of volatile ram; (partly due to optimization needed on the higher side of the memory limits shown, aka memory leakage). This will only go up as we get closer to launch of the Beta, and 16gigs is soon becoming the limiting factor not too far off. As we'll start seeing more assets and features being introduced into the game, which will reduce memory bandwidth. Don't forget alot of back ground process's use up ram aswell, so having to close down web browser tabs and other programs might be a common annoyance for people opperating with 16gigs. This could change with optimization but by how much is unknown so deside at your own discretion! Motherboard When it comes to motherboards (in general) and CPU overclocking, the rule of thumb is not to cheap out. A good power delivery equates to a better and more stable overclock. A Lot of board manufactures cheap out on PCB components, resulting in poor quality boards. My personal advice would be to research your boards in your given price range, to get your best bang for buck. But considering this is going to be a build for Star Citizen, you'll want to have something decent that will last you awhile, as Overclocking these days is so incredibly simple and very safe from the times of the past, so there's no reason you shouldn't have even a small overclock. A good Example of what boards may suit people in a given price range; (look up relative board types depending on our build or vendor "Intel / AMD", / Enthusiast / Workstation, (Z390-AM4 / X299-Thread-Ripper) . GPU While graphics is one of the most expensive parts of the build, it’s generally deemed not as high on the priority list over CPU and Motherboard. This is generally because GPU’s 'had' a shorter life span over the rest of the system. This is changing mainly due to the price gouging both vendors are doing mainly for two reasons. (1) lack of competition on the high end. Nvidia can price whatever they like, because they know the majority customers will buy their products. $3000 Titan V over last gens Titan Xp $1200 for over double the price? You'd expect double the performance in both applications and gaming. But realistically it will be only a 15% increase. (2) Cryptocurrency mining. AMD’s cards are very good workstation cards that are excellent at mining, as Vega GPU are basically cut down deep learning cards and rebranded gaming GPU's; (Which is why their gaming performance is pants over Nvidia). This is why theres both a shortage of GPU's and a price hike aswell. Much Like Motherboards some vendors cheap out on components. I would avoid powercolor for example as they are repeat offenders when it comes to this practise. Youtube break down videos from tech outlets like Buildzoid are the places to go to, apon looking for a decent built GPU. 4k Max -1080TI / Titan (pascal)+ 4k - 1080 / Vega 64 Ultrawide 3440x1440 - 1080 / 1070TI / Vega 64 / 56 2k / 1440p Max or high refresh rate - 1070 / Vega 56 Ultrawide 2560x1080 - Rx580 / 1070 1440p 60-100 FPS - RX580 1080p - RX580 / 1060 (6gig) 8 gig Vram minimum on the GPU would be a wise and safer bet. PSU is the beating heart of a PC system. Buying a high grade “gold plus” is sensible as a poor grade PSU’s can and will destroy any if all of your components if they fail. Good top quality brands are Superflower and Corsair and EVGA. Superflower are one of the best OEM's for power supplies on the market. They make the highest quality power supplies. The EVGA G2 and G3 are based on Super Flower's Leadex Gold platform. Base Level: Between 80% and 82%. Bronze: Between 83% and 85%. Silver: Between 85% and 88%. Gold: Between 88% and 92%. Platinum: Between 92% and 94%. Titanium: The highest 80 PLUS rating; any power supply that operates at 95% or above efficiency. Case the golden rule is air flow. While some may look amazing like the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Tempered Glass it suffers with very poor air flow. Whereas something like the Anidees AI-Crystal has both looks and great airflow. Make sure your case supports the motherboard size of your choosing also! Storage, it goes without saying that Flash memory is far superior to HDD’s in terms of read writes and load times. So having your OS on 250GB SSD Drive, and having SC on another 250GB SSD would be ideal for headroom later on, depending on expansions and additional content. Having a big HDD (2TB) for random files and photos is a good idea as well.
  21. This artical from wccftech.com Do you believe? https://wccftech.com/vega-teaser-slides-leak-nda/ Sell Your Titan X & 1080 TI That’s right folks. If our sources are correct, you’re holding onto some underwhelming mid-range graphics cards that will be completely decimated by AMD’s newest architecture (at least according to the leaked slides). I am personally blown away by this new info. It’s simply unbelievable that AMD managed to spank NVIDIA so hard, with a much smaller R&D budget. Mind you, we should wait for third party reviews, but the spread this slide suggests is just massive! Check out this glorious slide featuring Vega completely decimating the competition. April fools or not thats up to you to believe.
  22. Just received a K95 Platinum keyboard from Amazon today, and figured I would write a short comparison review verses each keyboard if anyone else was considering getting either one. Logitech G910 Orion Spark Pros: - Amazing feeling when actuating the key - LED's are bright and uniform across the board - Feels like good quality, sturdy keyboard that will last a long time Cons: - The key caps cut shape takes some getting used to. Shouldn't have to spend another $30-$40 for normal keycaps, should be included. - The keys are too close together, and often have words that lookjn klikew thjisa - The LED RGB software is basic and leaves the user feeling bland. It's too simple, and you can't combine profile's or do whatever you like with the RGB. Some parts of the keyboard such as the M1-MR keys don't change colors, and your media keys are also a static baby blue color. Also, the colors aren't exactly right. The red is like a very dark orange and the white isn't a true white, it definitely has a noticeable blue. - The wrist rest leaves you wanting more, it's too sloped for comfortable typing and there is no option for a cushioned attachable pad The Logitech G910 Orion Spark is a decent keyboard for gaming, but the constant backspacing and having to type on the less than ideal wrist rest is not ideal for a keyboard trying to be the "top dog". I do have to say that while it does have those faults, it's an amazing feeling to actually type on. I just don't believe enough R&D went into this product, and I cannot recommend this to someone wanting an end all keyboard for gaming and general everyday use. Rate it 7/10. While it does have its faults, it is still a great looking keyboard and the keys do feel great to type on, but falls short on ergonomics, software and presentation. Let me just add that while trying to uninstall the most recent Logitech software, I started to immediately experience BSOD crashes and it said error "LGBusEnum.sys". Upon some research, it's a known issue even through several recent versions of the software. The only way to fix it is to go back to an earlier version of Windows before installing and do a System Restore, then go into Device Manager and disable Logitech Gaming Virtual Bus Enumerator. Corsair K95 Platinum (Gunmetal Grey) Pros: - Extremely fast and light key presses - LED's are bright and also feature three illumination modes on the keyboard itself - Feels heavy due to the aluminum finish, don't expect this keyboard to start sliding on you. - The overall finish is excellent and I do recommend the Gunmetal Grey over the black finish - Comes with an extra set of "Gaming" keys, and they texture feels nice without a cheap rubbery feel like competitors gaming keys - USB pass-through. I honestly thought I'd never use it but I'm using it now and wish I had started way back when - The fold out legs offer very good rubberized grip where some competitors don't offer any grip at all, and the height raised feels great - The included wrist rest, unlike the G910, is completely removable and you can flip the magnetic mat ontop for a smooth or textured finished (personally prefer the texture) - Braided USB cord Cons: - None, except the keys are very light to press, and the typing keys vs the Enter, Backspace etc feel different but still an amazing experience typing. If you don't like light actuated keys this is not the keyboard for you. The Corsair K95 Platinum is an overall great experience. Everything from the packaging and presentation, the way the keys feel while typing, the included wrist rest, and extra gaming keys. I have to say that I highly recommend this product over the Logitech G910 Orion Spark and also the Spectrum, different being the Spectrum offers traditional keys and slightly different wrist rest. Everything from software, packaging, gaming and general typing makes this keyboard the top dog of keyboards based on my experience so far. Rate it 9/10, only because this is a $200 keyboard and a lot of people cannot afford peripherals this expensive. If they lowered the price to perhaps $150-$175 there would be a larger user base.
  23. If you don't want to spend the money on a tablet for Roccat, or simply prefer physical buttons, this is a good alternative. Now, idk how much of the configurable software would work in Star Citizen but it does look really cool and would be extremely useful if it did work
