I built a new pc in Dec with parts bought around BF. 3600X / MSI 570 Gaming Edge WiFi / 32 GB OLO 3200 / Gigabit Gaming OC 5700 XT / NVMe 1TB / EVGA 650 Gold
When I first put it together I used a GTX 1070 for a few months while deciding which gpu to buy and looking for a deal. System ran...
I'm looking for a 32" or bigger IPS 144Hz monitor at 1440p. I was figuring 2560x1440 because although I upgraded my rig recently I reused an older 1070 GTX. I have 3600X/x570/16GB 3200/1TB NVMe
I 'm worried my rig...
Hisense is the best available budget TV imho. The Hisense is better than comparable Samsung and Sony in the $800 to $1,100 range. The TCL R625 is pretty close but the Hisense is better in motion handling, has a wider color gamut and is the only 120Htz panel in this pricing segment. The colors...

Duh, cant believe I didn't even notice case was mini. The 2600/mobo combo was such a great deal at 210, I just thought it would help future proof it for a year or two. A 450 ITX and the 2600 still showing about 200 on parts picker. Did find 3200 mem for same price though...
So I got a nephew that really wants a PC. He wants to build it and it would be his first. He has saved about $400 and he is only 14. He's a really good kid and his parents aren't poor but are lower middle class. I'm looking to help him out a little. I really dont think you can do a decent...

I got the 1TB of this and it is smoking fast. I use the a lot of the space for video editing.
Was curious if there's a great benefit to have your games on M.2 with OS or will the run just as well on an SSD or spinning HD?
Maybe not as fast as the Evo pro or MicroCenter drives but in real world use it's very unlikely you would ever notice. I got this a month or so back for $95 and put it in a new i5 NUC, no complaints, excellent performance.
I've heard quite a bit about inland drives but have never owned one. I'm gonna use it in a NUC and will have some work related stuff that may only get backed up weekly so dependability is more important to me than speed. The Evos have been the king for awhile, but way overpriced accordingly...
8TB red internal drive $156 today. No need to shuck and better warranty
Not sure if part of their prime day sale but they have the MiBox S for $39 It's a nice little streaming box for Netflix, plex, etc,,,
I use one as a media server in a bedroom running Kodi. I got to think it would run faster with more ram. Also I want to setup one running piehole and my understanding is it would run much better with more ram, maybe even using a single unit for vpn server and piehole.
I'm no expert, just a...
