  1. So, I recently thought I was going to inherit a PC from my work. I was stoked, thinking maybe it would be a good head start on a gaming rig. Sadly, that did not happen. What did happen was my being gifted both a Slave One and a Millennium Falcon. Now, ever since I was a tech writer and did a feature on this Falcon PC case mod, I've wanted to build it for myself... altered to be sturdy enough to wall mount. It also needs a bit of updating, parts-wise. So basically, am I insane? Here's the Falcon model in question : https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Electronic-Millennium-Falcon/dp/B000LRKTZ8 And here's my progress so far (!): https://imgur.com/a/QRZqqRy Theoretical parts list (I have little idea what I'm doing): https://pcpartpicker.com/user/GrogStache/saved/y3z7WZ Also: http://www.krylon.com/products/fusion-for-plastic/ (paint for case interior?)
  2. Um hello, I don't know if this is the right place to ask this but does anyone know Gopher's computer specs? Are they even public? I've searched for them for a little while now and can't seem to find them. Maybe I'm just dumb...
  3. Hi everyone! For some time now I'm thinking about purchasing a new gaming PC. I'd like an advice on the build I'm considering: Some of the parts are just placeholders, because I couldn't find the model I was thinking of. Do you have any suggestions about this build? Please, keep in mind this build is already at the higher end of the budget I'm willing to spend (currently about 1950$ where I live). I'm mainly looking for a way to improve the ratio of performance per dollar.
  4. So in preparation for the upcoming Overwatch game here is a thread dedicated to PC Overwatch players. Since Console users don't have these hassles. To find out your full Name Code which includes your username and numeric code. Simply click your username while Battle Net is open and you'll see an extra code following your username. For instance mine is. VATROU#1788 in that order that is how it is presented and typed into the Friend request search box. So if you wanna partner up, meet new people or just mess around go on share yours! Jognt#2712 Defectius#1807 NafNaf95#2156 luthienmpl#2990
  5. Hi all, So, there's a decent chance that my workplace will be upgrading its computers (for reasons unknown, everything here works fine) and that there MAY be a free Dell Optiplex 3020 in my future. IF that's the case, I'm wondering what sort of work I could do on it to make it a decent gaming rig. I totally understand that this PC will never be a dream computer, but being that I'm currently gaming on a laptop with a 1.8GHz processor and i believe a 1 gig dedicated GPU, this thing might still be an upgrade if I play my cards right. some stats on the PC in question: Intel core i5-4590 CPU @3.30 GHz 8GB DDR3 RAM (possibly maxed out) 64 bit OS No dedicated GPU, but it does have the slot for one (pretty sure, lol) And, it's a full-sized tower, not the small form factor type. That's literally all I know. Super assuming I'll need to upgrade (or you know, install in the first pace) a GPU and power supply. Any thoughts? Is this a fools errand, even given that the PC would be free?
  6. Good evening to Gopher community!Finally gathered the money to build my dream pc after almost 7 years so here I am!Purpose of the pc will be playing video games on 4K max settings, plus I will probably experiment on streaming/video editing/utubing.My budget is at 1800€ (euros) but I am willing to exceed it for the sake of quality if I need to as it is my dream build and I have high expectations, not more than 100 or 200 € though. The budget includes only the TOWER however if you have any further suggestions for peripherals (especially 4K monitors) you're welcome!I am willing to order the parts as soon as I get the suggestion that mostly fills my needs, max 2 weeks time though.I live in Europe (Greece) so I will be purchasing the parts mostly from my country because of the guarantee given. However I may order some of the parts from other european countries if it is of my interest.As I understand it I will need a good amount of cpu power for the usage of my pc. However right now I don't have the amount of time to oc. I am willing to learn though in the future. I've heard though that it is as easy as pressing a button to achieve mediocre-decent oc so if that is the case I could do it at present.All parts will be new.Regarding special preferences, I think it is essential I go for an amd cpu (Ryzen 1700) as I've concluded that it is way more helpful with multitasking/streaming/video editing. Would like to fit in a 1080ti too as I am going for 4K. If you think you have a better suggestion don't hesitate to throw it as I am by no means an expert. I think Win 10 for OS is just fine.I would love a window on my case. Generally I prefer minimal cases, not too extreme, I want the case to be able to have a dvd driver etc. I want my whole build to be white themed so the case will follow. As an example of a case of my liking take the NZXT Phantom.I would like my pc to have bluetooth, plus I would like suggestions whether I would need a sound card or the mobo is enough. I wouldn't mind having rgb as long as it fits well with the white theme.Thanks everyone in advance for all the answers and suggestions, hope I have been clarifying enough, and if not don't hesitate to ask me any details! Thanks again all!
  7. Hello all. So I've had my Pc now for the past four years, and while I have Upgraded it from stock, with a New Graphics card, power unit, and Ram, It's now really starting to show it's age, Running newer gamers at less then 60 fps and a few Blue screens, some of the USB ports have stopped working or are faulty. So I am looking to upgrade on a budget. I have already chosen a new housing or tower unit, which will be the Corsair CC-9011054-WW Graphite series 760 V2. A friend has it, and the side opening door for me is a feature I would love, as cleaning my current Housing is a chore , and requires tools. Id rather just have a door. The housing also gives me plently of room to upgrade. My Current specs are as followed. CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K CPU Overclocking: 4.3Ghz - Stable OC on all CPU cores CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Loki SDS963 Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX RAM: 32gbs (16 usable) Hard Drive: 1TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA Graphics card: MIS GeForce GTX 970 4G Sound Card: Onboard 7.1 Audio Case: Zalman Z11 Plus PSU: Xtr 650 Now What I plan to do is Just Move the Ram, PSU , Graphics card, hard drives and Optical drive over to the new Housing. The Main thing I Have No idea what to change is the CPU and mother board, or if i should add a second 970. Ive looked and just get confused, any suggestions ? :S I would rather not play Fallout 4 at below 30fps in some places ... Thank you for your time and suggestions
  8. So a friend of mine is going to be giving me a brand new Blue Yeti mic, and I'm looking to upgrade to a set of good 7.1 surround sound headphones. I know we have a few regular audiophiles that peruse our forums, so I'd like to hear their suggestions on a pair of cans that'd go with my underused sound card I paid top dollar for, lol.
  9. Kinda surprised we don't have one of these threads already. Anyway thought it'd be cool to see how the Minions roll. Please note images uploaded to the forum using the post attachment system before the forum transfer have only survived as thumbnails, images uploaded to an external image host e.g. Flickr still display correctly.

  10. Hello! The topic below is just me really asking you guys how you feel about the new Pascal architecture, how it applies to me, if it applies to you, and if anyone has any opinions on it and G-sync monitors, etc. The Current Build Currently have a supreme PC I bought back in 2011 that is essentially still...somehow...a monster of a machine. The dual 670's might sound outdated now but believe me, they've brought me all the way up to The Witcher 3 with many things on Ultra and some on High. A bit of a side note that may cause controversy: I find it pathetic that a game such as the Witcher 3 can look so good and run so well on my build but Fallout 4 can't even look nearly as complex and was a wake up call to me that I need a new PC because most games aren't optimized like the Witcher 3. The Dream Build It's going to be a Falcon Northwest, Talon, a mid sized tower with plenty of room to upgrade and a 3-year warranty. I know I know...why not build it on your own!? Why not save 20-30% and learn to build your own PC? Well it all comes down to time and I don't have a lot of it to spare building a PC nor do I have the level of patience anymore with dealing with any issues that may arise. I would love to learn how to build a new PC since I am rusty, but I just don't care enough to deal with the issues. Now that that is out of the way...the build will be something akin to this but most likely more powerful since it'll be built in Q2 or Q3 of 2016. System Details Chipset Intel® X99 Motherboard Asus® X99 Deluxe Processor Intel® Core™ i7 5820K 3.6GHz Processor Cooler Asetek® Liquid Cooling - Talon Memory 16GB - 4x4GB - 2133MHz - DDR4 Video Card NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card 2 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 Ti 6GB Sound Card On-Board Audio Networking On-Board Ethernet Operating System Drive Micron® M600 SSD 512GB Optical Drive Asus® 16x DVD Writer 64-Bit Operating System Microsoft® Windows 10 Home Pascal Architecture Now I know currently dual 980's at that size GB would blow any game away but is anyone else waiting for the Pascal architecture to come out in Spring 2016? I know that I almost definitely am for sure, but was curious if anyone has any interesting information on the Pascal cards. I do know they're supposed to be exponentially more powerful (aren't they always but still the power charts look amazing) and that alone wets my appetite. Sound Card I currently use some awesome Bose over-the-ear sound eliminating headphones that are just plain amazing. With that said I love and appreciate sound but right now I feel happy where I am but the question is: Can I increase that happiness? That immersion? I have heard stories where gamers invested into a sound card though and the difference in their immersion is huge. G-Sync Does anyone have a g-sync monitor? I've read up on all the advantages they give and I am basically sold on the idea of one. Does anyone have any bad experiences or is there any downside besides price? Look forward to your stories, opinions and or discussions!
  11. Hello friends! I am creating this topic to see if we can create an organized list of all the tweaks, fixes, etc we can find in the Net.

But who knows, maybe it will change again in the future.
  12. A discussion created for people to post their pc builds and have others review them, check for issues, or simply advise on. Here is mine. Is everything compatible? Do I need any other parts? What do you think of the parts? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/t3X7xr
  13. OK first of all hello everyone I am new to this forum (and generally to using forums :P) and I am really glad to be part of gophers minions. I have watched Gopher for over a year now. So let's cut to the chase. In a month or so I will have finished my law studies and I will return back to my hometown. Up until now I only had a mediocre laptop cause I was always moving due to the fact I was living in a different town. However now that I am going back home as a big gaming enthusiast I am looking into making my own gaming pc cause this 4 years ol' laptop can't really handle much. I haven't decided yet but I am looking into the possibility of getting into utubing/streaming in the future so I am thinking I would need a decent pc for both gaming and video rendering, however due to the limited budget (Greek here crisis etc), around 700 to 1100-1200 max. Of course I am thinking I could get a gaming pc now being upgradeable for video rendering in the future (when I find more money :P). In the end it is very possible that as soon as I get my degree I will serve my army time for about 9 months so I ask is it a good idea to buy a pc now or should I wait till I end the army too? Cause I don't want to buy a pc now and have it collecting dust in my room for 9 months! Every opinion is welcome, and every little bit helps a lot! Again I am new to this forum thing so I hope I am writing in the right thread etc etc. Thanks all for your help in advance!
