    What do you want to see in games?

    For me, I would like to see the environment/landscape/city etc. change as your actions evolve. This is done already to a modest degree in some games, where you can build up towns a little, NPC's are walking around, but it would be nice if it were a bit more robust. Some realism would be nice...

    Elite: Dangerous

    Thank you! Is Oculus the best VR to get right now? Also, does this game have a storyline? (sorry about all of the questions)

    Elite: Dangerous

    Will that Thrustmaster you mentioned also work for Microsoft Flight Sim X? You still had to use the keyboard though, correct?

    Elite: Dangerous

    I see what you're talking about now. I've started the other tutorials now. I have to find a way to better maneuver the ship via remapping the keys though as I do not have a joystick.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    Just started playing a few days ago. Like others, it's been awhile since I've played an FPS like this; first time for BR as well. Is it me or do people pretty much stay put? I'm not saying they're camping, but doesn't seem like there is a lot of activity aside from the first few minutes.

    Corsair K68 Mech Keyboard with Reds (Renewed) $29.99 at Amazon

    I bought this keyboard new back in 2018. I would like a mechanical keyboard to use for my work computer, but don't want to pay $70. Anything comparable to this?

    do new games suck or am I cynical?

    In general I agree with this. I amassed a large wishlist of games until I was able to build a new PC. After I built the PC, I started playing the games from my list and noticed there was a level of familiarity as he stated. I started gravitating towards games that were more story driven or in...

    Need advice on finishing this build

    So let's say I do the Corsair H100i. The case comes with 1 exhaust fan in the rear and there are 2 intake fans in the front. Do you: A) mount the AIO radiator on top, if yes, in a exhaust or intake orientation or B) mount the AIO radiator on the front, assuming an intake orientation...

    Yeah, the question I have is can I fit that thing into the case I mentioned above with Trident Z memory? I am currently looking for builds where this might be possible.

    Need advice on finishing this build

    If I went with the 8700k, what CPU cooler would be recommended? I am not familiar with AIO's, so I was still thinking HSF. I was going to go with a Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass case. If I went with the Trident Z memory, what cooler would provide clearance for this? Edit: What about...

    Need advice on finishing this build

    I might OC in the future. Honestly, I have never done it so I am unfamiliar with the process. Does the Strix Z370-H pose any problems? I didn't see a reason NOT to get it, but searching around the internet it seems that there are differences of opinions, but none substantiated by multiple...

    Need advice on finishing this build

    Not certain I see much of an advantage to the E vs. the H version. I mean, it looks like a USB 3.1 Gen 2 connection in the front, wifi and bluetooth and that's about it. Am I missing something?

    Need advice on finishing this build

    It appears the E and F versions of that Mobo would be reasonable to consider. G and I are for different form factors if I am not mistaken. Not sure what the H version is about.

    Hey SinisterDei - I've been educating myself since these lasts posts, including reviewing your part selection (which I appreciate BTW). Couple of questions: 1. With regards to the memory selected, why DDR-2666? Any reason not to go beyond that? (I vaguely recall the importance of CAS...

    Gaming Build ~ 4K budget

    Do you think performance will be an issue in the future regarding the quad core? I'm not sure I want to game in 4K, but I am interested in a single card solution. I appreciate all of the effort put into the detail provided. Portability is not a factor for me. It's going to sit tight...

    Need to upgrade - Video card and PSU

    No argument there. My whole purchase strategy was centered around getting this machine up and running as fast as possible in the context of having recently moved to another state with my family, plus getting ready for orientation at my new job. Waiting even 2 or 3 days on Amazon for parts was...

    How about this...I have a $75 credit at Frys. Can I at least get a PSU from there (pay cash), such as this one Then buy a video card and monitor from best buy? My only hesitation about raising the budget is the fact that most of the hardware in my machine is from 2010, and some of it from...

    Appreciate the rec. Really trying to repair this thing tomorrow as I don't have time to wait until the weekend for amazon shipping. Haven't researched PSU's in quite some time. Any other brands that are all around "good"? Antec, Corsair, etc... Just asking because I can get those at Fry's...

    Any reason this mobo would not be compatible with this PSU?

    This is from memory since I can't use my rig to find out, and I believe I upgraded it back in 2009?

    Any reason this mobo would not be compatible with this PSU?

    Bought it locally at Fry's as my previous PSU went out. Limited to what is in stock over there. Don't want to spend more than $80 on the PSU as well. I guess I could order something off of Amazon if need be.
