You are a saint. Just the benchmarks I was looking for. Awesome!

Thank you all for the replies! Yeah, I'm running a 1080p 60hz monitor, probably looking to upgrade to a 1440p monitor in the near future. Probably won't upgrade my CPU until I do a brand new build down the line. I guess that 8320 was a worthwhile investment after all. Not the best, but it definitely holds up and does what I need it to do.

That's one of the greatest joys of PC gaming, throwing together a setup that works nicely with whatever you have. It's cooler than dropping 3K on a ridiculous rig. Nice work! I love it!

I put a lot more into the budget in aesthetics for you. That case has RGB fans and the 1070 is also RGB. It'll be a sweet looking build.

Because of that, I didn't put in an HDD, just the SSD. But that's an easy upgrade. You can always get a less expensive SSD if you want more storage.

There's two main types of headphones: circum-aural (around your ear, the big ones you're talking about) and supra-aural (just on your ear). What I think you're looking for is a supra-aural headset like this one.

No, you can't. You'll have to take a look at the manual to figure out which jacks are which.

I don't know exactly what your budget is, but I'd start by looking at something like this or this.

Is that close to what you're looking for?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "I need you opinion about this build."

  • 29 months ago

Solid partslist. If I were you, I might go down to 8gb of ram and use the extra money for an RX 480 4gb instead, but that's just me. Or, if you want to wait for Ryzen R5s and R3s and see how they compare price + performance wise versus that Pentium, that wouldn't be a bad idea. But at the end of the day, it depends how anxious you are to start gaming. Don't wait too long, you'll just waste time.

You can still get a free upgrade to Windows 10, by the way.

But yeah, you have a very solid build. Upgrade the graphics card depending on your budget. Your i5 will do just fine. I'd do a 1070 or better or wait for Vega if you want.

I don't, haha. I love my Audio Technicas. They look awesome, and they sound awesome. You won't regret your purchase. I would look into the M40Xs if you want to save some cash, that's the pair I have. It's not that much of a downgrade. Any of the headphones in the series headphones are a good purchase.

Best I could do with your budget. I'd personally recommend a Pentium instead of an FX series chip but it's your choice.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "New Audio Setup"

The Audio Technica + Modmic 5 sounds like a great combo, and definitely the more cost effective one.

If you want an external mic you can either get a USB one or an XLR that'll plug into an audio interface. A decent audio interface will run you around $100 right off the bat. Then you need an XLR cable and a nice microphone.

If you want to record nice voiceovers and stuff, I'd look into that. Otherwise, if you're just doing VOIP chat with friends, the Modmic will do just fine.

No, you cannot have two different video cards in the same system usually. Especially when one of them is AMD and the other is nVidia.

You could get another 470 if you wanted, but if I were you, I would sell the 470 and replace it with the 1070.

If there's enough room to work inside, temps are reasonable, and you like the look of it, I see no reason to upgrade.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Buy or wait"

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

My philosophy is why wait weeks or even months for a slightly better deal when you can start gaming as soon as possible. There's always going to be something better down the road.

It all depends. I've heard people are having a few issues with their Ryzen chips taking ram correctly or something like that so sometimes it's better to buy the stuff that for sure will work perfectly.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Case fan color matching?"

  • 29 months ago

They'll probably be close enough that you wont be able to see a difference.

You can still use the stock Evo fan. It comes with extra mounts to mount two fans on either side of the heatsink.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "how much"

  • 29 months ago

Well, 3 27 inch screens is gonna take up 81 inches or 6 feet, presumably. It also depends on if your PC is going to be on the desk as well or not.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "G4560, i3 6100, or i5 3470?"

  • 29 months ago

The Pentium and the i3 6100 are pretty close in performance. You might benefit from the extra cores of that i5 for video editing and gaming. If I had the choice, I'd probably go for the i5.

You'd be surprised how much performance you can squeeze out of those bad boys. Sure, maybe the budget could have been spent somewhere else but don't underestimate the newest generation of Pentiums.

I'd say about $450-550 USD. Not sure where you're from.

It has 2 SSDs and an AIO, I'd say around 700 most likely.

It's really a hit or miss I guess. I got my Razer Anansi keyboard from a friend used. He already had it for 3 years and I've had it for 3 more and it still works like new. My Razer Imperiator has lasted me about 4 years now as well.

Very, very nice budget build. Looks super clean and you couldn't have done a better job choosing the parts. The Pentium + RX 470 combo imo is the best budget option you can get right now.

Awesome work! Congrats on your new PC! Enjoy!

Well, I learned something new today. So you should buy PSUs based on trusted high quality brands then?

Hmm, I didn't know that. I would think that the efficiency is a sign of good quality parts though.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Can I run It?"

  • 29 months ago

I found the minimum requirements for The Division here.

System requirements lab is a really cool website to easily check if you can run games or not. Your RX 460 should be fine, but the minimum CPU requirement is an FX 6100, a slightly newer AMD CPU with 6 cores versus your quad core Athlon. It's a close call, but I think you'll be okay.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Can I plug a audio and Mic plug into these?"

Yes, there's almost always one standard 3.5mm input and output. You should be all good!

Comment reply on Forum Topic "i7 6800K build advice"

  • 29 months ago

The best way to check compatibility is to make a partslist on here and it'll check for you automatically.

If you want your cpu to stay relevant for as long as possible, having more cores might give you an advantage in the long run as people start to optimize programs and games to use more cores.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Need help buying a used PC (my first gaming PC)"

If you wanna choose between those three, definitely go with the second one.

The CPU is a little outdated, but you're getting a pretty nice deal for that 970.
