Your going to want airflow fans. Airflow fans push more air when there isn't anything blocking them or in the way. You'd want static pressure fans when you you have things like radiators or HDD cages obstructing air flow. Since the S340 doesn't have HDD cages and you didn't say anything about a radiator you'll want AFs.

If people like what you say they upvote you if they don't they down vote you. Being helpful can get you comment karma, but the easiest way to get it is to post funny comments. So pretty much it doesn't really matter.

Well have to see first. Star wars battlefront 3 recommended 16gbs and although while still in beta its ram usage usually sits around 2.5gbs, but I do think we will start seeing usage closing in on 8gbs.

Actually contrary to popular belief this will get you laid. Now hear me out. Surely you have heard of the phenomenon called the dad bod. Research shows that girls actually prefer guys with the with the dad bod as it makes us seem more human natural and attractive. Buying this PC will most definitely get you a dad bod inadvertently getting you laid.

No problems! Forgot to mention I was playing with settings completely maxed out. If you disabled Anti aliasing which I don't think is necessary at 1440p you can probably get a better frame rate.

8gbs is still fine and still the standard. 16gbs fine if you have the money it wont hurt, but if your on a budget and buying 16gbs pulls money away from other components I wouldn't buy it. Same thing with faster ram its nice to have, but doesn't really make a difference.

Honestly I'm not too big on strike supers. ki blast supers are just so much cooler haha. I thinking to stack stamina and basic attack since namekians do less basic attack damage and I have a heavy reliance on Kaio Ken to boost my attack.

I watched the live stream and HK appeared In it so I'm guessing you get him back pretty early on. And yep companions can be any role.

For the planet level sync and changing the main stats I've heard good arguments against and for then honestly. For the main stat change the best thing is I don't have to see a people stack aim on a Jedi lol. And the planet sync if your in a level 5 planet for example and your level 60 it brings you down to level 5, but you get the same amount of XP and money as you would if you were on a level 60 planet. So going back inst pointless anymore.

If you want to see all the changes they have it posted on the swtor website.

I have one of every class, but only 2 level 60s. 1s a vanguard tank and the other is a Jedi knight tank. 1 55 sorc healer. And the rest at are about mid 20s lol. Is 12x XP over already? Damn I was lvling a Jedi shadow that's currently level 35 the slowest part of the game in my opinion lol.

Did you hear they're doing a planet level sync and changing all the main stats such as aim and strength to one stat called mastery?

I love SWTOR.

ME TOOO! Well I love almost everything Star Wars.

Super hyped for the the new expansion.

Yeah I'm super excited! I freaked out when I first saw the KOTFE trailer. How do you feel about all the changes they are making?

I've actually met one super obnoxious player will playing swtor. During a flashpoint somebody made a slight mistake and he was told to go kill himself.

Yeah just the other day I ran a Mandalorian Raiders and I ended up with a dude who rolled as tank, but expected the DPS to Tank and then kept yelling at everyone to CC regular mobs (not elites or anything) and got so mad he quite when we were already 80% done. Seriously you already spent like an hour running with us why just quit?

Ok bear with me here GTA v, Witcher 3, CSGO, Killing floor 2, metal gear V phantom pain, Rocket league, swtor, ESO, Star citizen, Star wars battlefront 3 beta, Tomb raider, Shadows of mordor, Battlefield 3 and 4, Dragon age inquisition, Metro last light redux, Project cars, Elite dangerous.

Those are what I've played recently. When I first got my 390x I had problems with GTA V, but I found out it was actually windows 10 because my friend with a 970 also had problems needless to say that was two months ago and has been fixed.

If there's any game you want me to test if I have it ill be happy to test it for you.

Ensourced does really fancy custom cabling. Pretty much anything you can think of. http://www.ensourced.net/

There are also some here http://www.moddiy.com/pages/Custom-Cables.html

You should probably go red since your motherboard and Ram are red as well. Also you can always custom sleeve it yourself (though it is a really big hassle if you ask me)

Forum Topic "Converting from ibuypower"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Honestly I'm probably not the best person to answer this, but my understanding is that the coiled megahom resistor built into the wrist band prevents static discharge. So although voltages leak through the band it prevents it from discharging into the parts.

Forum Topic "Converting from ibuypower"

Ksongs 2 Builds 2 points 43 months ago

The way it works is your going to want to clip the anti static wristwrap onto an unpainted metal part of your case this puts your body to the Same voltage potential as your PC preventing static discharge. In all honesty you don't need an anti static wrist wrap, though it is nice to have. A year ago when I first built my PC half way through building I got rid of mine because it kept getting in the way. As long as your not wearing fuzzy socks and building on carpet you should be fine.

Forum Topic "Best sub-$450 monitor for 1440p"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

For gaming I think most people will pick 144hz as it provides much smoother gameplay. Its big enough of a difference that 60hz will seem choppy to those who have used 144hz. IPS provides better colors and viewing angles people who do photo or video editing would benefit from this the most.

Forum Topic "Best sub-$450 monitor for 1440p"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

No problem! There is this one https://pcpartpicker.com/part/acer-monitor-umhg0aa001 its 144hz 1440p , but its sitting right on your budget limit. Its also not IPS (i don't know how important IPS is to you.)

Forum Topic "Best sub-$450 monitor for 1440p"

Ksongs 2 Builds 2 points 43 months ago

You actually have quite a few options. Here's a list I compiled. https://pcpartpicker.com/parts/monitor/#r=256001440&X=0,45570&sort=a8&page=1

There a few IPS options in there, so if your looking for an IPS the Benq looks promising. Its an IPS 27in (I hear 27 inch is the sweet spot for 1440p)and 4ms response time. Feel free to ask if you have any other questions.

I am currently playing Heroes of the Storm full time and have found to not be heavily attracted to the newer AAA titles, therefore, I won't be going for a flagship GPU.

Ughh can't believe I glossed over that. Sorry about that. If you want I have heroes of the Storm installed and I can give you a rough estimate of what I'm getting with my 390x. I'm currently using a 1440p monitor too, So at the least I can give you a idea about the performance you'll be getting.

Forum Topic "Need Advice: Strongly considering move from NVIDIA to AMD"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

So, I know that you still get the smooth experience without having to keep up with the max refresh rate, So does actually being able to meet the max refresh rate with G/Freesync provide any benefit vs just using a regular monitor and turning on V sync? Or is it exactly the same?

Forum Topic "Need Advice: Strongly considering move from NVIDIA to AMD"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Well, the whole point of G sync and Free sync is to smooth out images when you have a GPU producing FPS lower then that of the monitor.

I know, but I was simply wondering if his goal was to actually hit 144fps. It would be smoother regardless if he was getting 144fps or not , but I just thought I'd put in if his intent is to actually hit 144 fps at 1440p he will definitely need something better than a 390x or 980.

Edit: Wouldn't using Gsync/Freesync still be better at 144hz than just using vsync though?

Forum Topic "Need Advice: Strongly considering move from NVIDIA to AMD"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

Is your goal 144fps at 1440p? Because neither of those cards are going to be able to achieve that. Also as a 390x owner I can't say it has great value. An r9 390 already has 90-95% the performance of a 390x while costing a good deal less. If your looking for best performance for the money I would take a look at the r9 390. If your looking to play 1440p at 144hz your going to have to look at a fury x or 980ti at the least.

Forum Topic "Asus VG248QE or Acer G257HU"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

It depends on what you want. With the Asus you have 144hz refresh rate, So gameplay will be very smooth. Much smoother than 60hz (from what I hear its hard to go back after experiencing 144hz) . You Also get a 1ms response time. With the Acer you get a higher resolution 1440p, So things look clearer, crisper, and better. Its also an IPS panel, So colors would look better than a TN panel like the Asus and you get better viewing angles, but it's only a 60hz monitor with a 4ms response time.

So its kind of do you want smoother gameplay or better visuals? I've heard good things about both monitors and I own the Acer, So you cant really go wrong with either.

Your fine you bought a good quality PSU. They recommend high wattages to avoid problems because people tend to buy crap PSUs. Your fine though I've seen people run 390s on less.

Forum Topic "Is IPS important?"

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 43 months ago

What TheNoob said. IPS doesn't give any benefit at all. It doesn't give you an edge over another guy. IPS panles have better colors and better viewing angles with little to no distortion if you decide to look at your monitor from weird angles, but because of this they have higher response times than TN panels. For example a TN panel can have as low as 1ms reponse times while the lowest response time I've seen on an IPS panel is 4ms.
