Neo_Gatsby's Completed Build: The LPC: Legitimate PS4 Contender (Console Killer)

Jack_Burton 0 points 53 months ago

Let's be fair, sometimes you don't want everything in one device. Also, the mobility of a laptop is a pretty big feature.

"Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available $969.42"

I'm not sure where you are from but not every state and every county has the same taxes in the US. On top of that not every website charges tax.

A person in Delaware and a person in California could have ordered these same exact parts at the same exact time with free shipping from the same retailers and there would be a 10% price difference.

If this person is from a county where there is no sales tax then this price is not post tax, because it was never taxed.

If I ordered this it would be more than $969

...when available. Apparently you don't read.

Newegg doesn't charge tax for most states in the US. Also Amazon doesn't charge taxes in some states either.

Looking at the stores he bought from there is a strong chance that no taxes and shipping were paid.

I buy from newegg all the time. it's free shipping and no tax because Newegg is in NJ and I'm in PA.

Move the drives down to the bottom rack and remove the middle rack for more airflow. It will really help to push more fresh air on the GPU

Yoshifan151's Completed Build: Gaming Rig Update (First Custom Build)

Jack_Burton 1 point 57 months ago

depends on how long you wait. I'll pop another 760 into my rig but it won't be for a long time. by then it'll be much cheaper used.

Blog Post "$970 Gaming Build"

Jack_Burton 9 points 57 months ago

but that is pre-tax. depending what state you live in and where you order from you could pay between 0% and 10% which would put it up around $1100. For me it would be around $1050. Newegg doesn't charge tax in my state but amazon does.

also keep in mind when you pay more for luxury items in other industrialized nations you benefit from a good socialized healthcare system. especially in the UK.

In America, we don't have that benefit.

Forum Topic "difference btwn manufacturers"

Jack_Burton 1 point 58 months ago

size of the card itself is a big issue as well. I have a gigabyte 760. the thing is freakin long

Forum Topic "2 hard drives?"

Jack_Burton 1 point 58 months ago

I have three drives.

SSD for windows and apps, and working on art. HDD for games, and music. HDD for art storage.

this way when the games HDD breaks down from way too much use, my art on and OS are safe.

pcpartpicker should show compatible MOBOs when you choose a CPU and crossfire GPUs

I would hang a painting over top of it with some vents on the sides

is this case quiet? I've been wondering for a while. it looks like it would be quite loud with the gpu right there by the vent

neat. not my style but they look nice.

I like wooden cases myself. There are some really nice cases out there

good call on the ram. AE can eat up memory quick. adding 16gb down the road will give it a nice boost

Cool chair. Is there enough airflow in that desk?

crazyferrari's Completed Build: The Elephant

Jack_Burton 1 point 63 months ago

definitely do this. that case fan will blow a lot of fresh air right to the CPU

mavrik12's Completed Build: Good Enough.

Jack_Burton 1 point 63 months ago

I think about coolers like PSUs, and cases. If you buy a really nice one now... you won't have to think about them for a long time. you know that they'll work with any upgrades in the future.

You buy a cheap Cooler, cose or PSU and you might regret it in a few years if GPUs and CPUs are more demanding.

mavrik12's Completed Build: Good Enough.

Jack_Burton 0 points 63 months ago

well he can upgrade the CPU and keep the cooler.

they probably just have to plan for any type of setup.

yeah that's what I've been concerned about with the cables. I should just stick with what I have and avoid my urge to tinker

Jack_Burton 1 point 63 months ago

that cooler seems a little odd. it's not pointed at the exhaust fan or a vent at the top of the case

JQuon's Completed Build: First build in over 15 years! Mid gaming pc

Jack_Burton 1 point 63 months ago

what are your thoughts on the PSU? I've been looking at that model. I'm wondering how the cable management and sound are. I think I read that the fan doesn't even turn on until it's reaches 40% power

sloppy cables for such a roomy case

Masterpizza2's Completed Build: Gaming PC AMD + nVidia

Jack_Burton 1 point 64 months ago

nice, I have similar parts inside of a define R4 with a 650w and 16gb ram for work. the CPU and GPU are great together for gaming.

$30 for that PSU is crazy. If you ever decide to upgrade you could sell it online and get more for it

please post pictures with the short cables when you get them in there. I'm curious to see how it looks

LuisA2's Completed Build: Nzxt Phantom 530/ First build :D

Jack_Burton 2 points 64 months ago

would it be better to flip the CPU cooler so that the fan blows across the heatsink and into the exhaust fan?

mikeyil's Completed Build: Castle Black, a Mini ITX Gaming/Media Center/Photo-Editing Build

Jack_Burton 1 point 64 months ago

Great build. I want to use this case in the future, but I just wish Fractal would make some custom cables to fit this case

not every build is for gaming. some people genuinely need 16gb of RAM, and have no need for a $400 GPU

darn, that thing is fully loaded! I like how you have that fan attached to the bottom HDD rack. How did you attach that? I have the Define R4 but I don't remember the bottom rack having holes for a case fan

Forum Topic "What size SSD?"

Jack_Burton 1 point 65 months ago

yeah but it's an ssd, it's still moving fast

Forum Topic "What size SSD?"

Jack_Burton 1 point 65 months ago

I bought a 128gb and have a bunch of adobe programs, and a dozen or so games installed with about 16 gb to spare.

If you're not going to run games or any other programs off of it just get whatever is cheap. amazon was having a sale on ssd earlier today. 20% off I think

Thanks, I wasn't sure how loud the Black one gets. I think I'll go green. After all I'm going to be working off of the free space on the SSD and the HDD will just be storage.

Does adding that extra fan add to the noise level or is it pretty silent?
