Thread to post cool tech stuffs!


Not my favorite type of earbuds but the concept is awesome. And I love all things Pokemon.

GitHub pricing is being slashed, and basic Teams functionality is being opened up to all.

So, I'll be hopefully building a new computer soon. And I wanted to build off what I already have. However, I no longer have a graphics card and have to pick another one. Anyone wanna help me pick the rest of my parts? I wanna be able to use my desktop for EvE and my Surface for just drawing. I'll probably try to find some pretty pink case, or a white one to match my mouse.

I'm not going to attempt water cooling right now, as I have zero experience with it. I would like an SSD though instead of a hard-drive, as I am pretty sure an SSD would work a lot better. I know I need DDR4 instead of 3.

But, yeah I don't know what specific like brands and what have you to get.

Noctua air coolers are going to beat anything else you can get. Get a smallish SSD and a large hard drive if you can't afford a big SSD (1TB+) -- install operating system + Eve on SSD and everything else goes on hard drive. No idea what else to suggest without some idea of budget.

I'm thinking around like 500-600 for a budget.
I'd like to get a new setup that's really nice and matches my mouse. So probably get a new keyboard and headset too. Idk what all I can get that's white/blue though.

500-600 for a GPU? https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-geforce ... 6814932212

If you mean 500-600 for a PC, that's going to be hard to do with $260 gone on CPU & mobo.

I already have the Mobo & CPU, I meant 500-600 for what all I need to get still.

Looks like a good build, I would consider extra storage. 250gb will barley cover things. Windows 10 will use up a whole bunch of space by itself. So not much space left for games and such.
