  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.)
  2. Hi Folks- My first post here so hope I am in the right place. I have decided to remove Star Citizen from my SSD that also has the OS, to a secondary SSD that will contain and run SC only. This will be a 250GB SSD. I am wondering if it would be better for speed and performance to leave the "support" files for SC, (eg. ThrustMaster T16000M-FCS, T.A.R.G.E.T, Voice Attack, etc.) on the OS drive or put them on the same SSD as the main game. Also I am wondering if I should just re-install SC on the new drive from scratch, or can it be precisely and correctly moved with software - I use Acronis True Image for my backups and cloning. I would greatly appreciate feed back from folks here about this as I am hoping to create this new situation so that it will be the best I can have for now and the future of the game. Thanks. ************************************************************************************************************************************************** RIG to date: * Thermaltake Level 10 GT case * Cool Power Gamer 980 watts * Maximus V Formula mb * * Intel i7 3770k cpu * Corsair H100i cooler * Corsair Vengeance 16GB [2x8] 1600 * * Sapphire R9 270X Toxic 2GB gpu * OS Win 10 Pro 1803 * * Corsair VOID 7.1 Wireless Headset * * T16000M FCS HOTAS * Monitor - LG 42LK520 LCD TV * * SSD [OS] OCZ Vertex 4 256GB * 2nd SSD SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 250GB SATA III 3D NAND * * Data HDs: SG 3TB, SG 3TB, WD 500GB * * Cam Logitech C920 * BluRay Multi(s) : ASUS BW-12B1ST and LG WH12LS39 * ========================================================================
  3. My current dedicated Star Citizen SSD died a month or so ago and I had to reinstall on a slower spinning HDD. I'm interested in picking up a new SSD for my OS, and give Star Citizen my old OS SSD. Because my mobo supports M.2 I think it might be nice to get one of those. Mobo: GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) M.2 Specifications: M.2 PCIe connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 SATA & PCIe SSD support) Every time an M.2 drive pops up on a sale site for $40 people call it "Slow" and "Not worth the money" and when I go to the review sites, their recommended M.2 drives are double the price for 4x the read speeds but I cant tell if my system will support all its fancy features. I'm having a hard time determining what M.2 read speeds would be ideal for me without being "Not worth the money" or "Overkill" for my current hardware and price range. Right now I'm looking at: MyDigitalSSD BPX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCI Express 3.0 x4 (PCIe Gen3 x4) NVMe MLC SSD (240GB) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M4OO1FT/ It touted a lot of features like PCI Express® Gen 3 x4 which I don't know if my board even supports. Edit: Reading an amazon review they state to get the max performance of the above drive I need to make sure my M.2 slot supports 4x lanes (not clear on the Mobo's documents), and has NVMe support (I thought Windows 10 covered that). Am I wasting my money on M.2 and should just stick with SATA SSD's? Should I wait for a game changing tech around the corner?

  5. This will be a shorter thread than the other two I started. It should just be the basics of building your own gaming computer and I hope it gets pinned. The others are for those of us who have already built their rigs and want to modify or augment. This one is just about building your first rig. I'll have building videos, links, and some troubleshooting advice. Everybody feel free to contribute, but keep it on track as a noob thread. Assume ignorance of the process, but don't denigrate anybody. Usually, Tom's Hardware has lots of good info and advice. Here are just the basics. Cooling options for your CPU can be found in the other thread Computer rig accessories. First things first, how much do you want to spend and when do you want this computer ready to use. so, start here to get an idea of how much money you could be spending depending on the level of gaming computer you want. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-guide-build-your-own-pc/ <-- this being said, use pcpartpicker.com to spec out your computer before you start buying components. It's pretty good at telling you where the best prices can be found. EVGA has many components to build a whole computer out of so check their B-stock page for deals to help keep your costs down or better performance for your allocated money. CPUs: https://elitegamingcomputers.com/the-best-gaming-cpus/ GPUs: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gpus,4380.html Computer cases: Aesthetics, volume usage, and number of fan spaces are important. You can use a micro-ITX or Full Tower. Don't go with a really cheap brand though: http://www.tomshardware.com/t/cases/ This first video is pretty easy to follow. Okay got all those components installed the way they should be? POST beep codes Computer won't post, crap! Time to troubleshoot. Remember these steps: Fault/Isolate; Remove/Replace; Test/Verify. google this: "computer will not post" to find loads of info http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000607.htm https://www.computerforum.com/threads/tech-guide-diagnosing-a-pc-which-will-not-post-or-start.209946/ old, but still relevant If it starts but keeps shutting down of maybe you broke it

    Build help Question about SSD's

    So, i've been looking into SSD's a bit more seriously with all of the sales going on. Per @Gremlich's advice I am solely looking at Samsung, and Crucial - though i've pretty much ruled out Samsung as it is significantly out of my price range for very little memory. I am looking at 2.5" Internal SATA 3's However, I am curious about differences within the SSD's themselves. Looking at Crucial they have several different models. M4, MX100, MX200, MX300, etc. Does anyone have any input on which of these are the best, worst, otherwise and why? Or if there really isn't all much difference between them? Also, as far as my build itself goes, I am thinking 250gb for Windows operating system, keeping my current 500gb for videos, pictures, etc, and I am thinking 500gb SSD for gaming - but I am also curious if anyone thinks it would be worth saving up the additonal to get 750-1TB. I know this is a lot of questions, but any and all input would be much appreciated. I am trying to keep this practically expensive, but I can't really seem to find much about SSD's quality versus cost, and the reviews on Newegg are still fairly new, except for the stuff that has been out for years now. EDIT: Upon further investigation, i've decided that I am also considering the Samsung 850EVO - I thought vertical meant it had to be mounted a certain way.
  7. I thought it would be nice to compile all the good tech deals we have found for others in the community to take advantage of.

  8. Its that time of the month to finish my PC upgrade's hear is what i am getting to finish my system. PC Case x2 SSD's Raid Card Memory Total Cost : £378.84 - minus any discount i get at scan. When finished the system will have 4 SSD's, 32GB Ram , Liquid Cooling, 6 Normal Mechanical HDD's. The only thing i am unsure of what to do with the SSD's i coud use the two i have allready and use them just for the OS, And use the 2 new ssd's for games, all the ssd's have the same speed "Read 555MB/s, Write 510MB/s" so thats nice to start with. Option 1 : use the existing to ssd's for OS in raid 0 as i currently have. Option 2 : use the new one's as i have said above for games only. Option 3 : use all the drives in raid 0 for os and games. My existing SSD's are both 128GB and are a few years old now but are in perfect working order never had a problem with them unlike some people i know. So what would you suggest ?
  9. Hello everyone! I was wondering how large this game might be. I know it may be too early to pose such a question, but it is quite a significant one. Knowing that this game is going to be big, very big, its file size will be enormous as well. In addition, for best performance, this game should run on an SSD rather than HDD. Now take into account that one of the largest PC games of all time (if not the largest) is X-Plane, a flight simulator taking up a whopping 70 Gb of space. Star Citizen's hangar module alone is over 4 Gb in size. If we want this game to fit in an SSD, we might need to get a drive dedicated solely for Star Citizen. What are your thoughts on the game's file size? Or is it far too early to even speculate?
