  1. So ' upgrading my PC, currently i run an Apache gaming laptop which is amazing... for a laptop, but i no longer need it to move so its time for a tower. i would like your input so feel free to tell me i'm an idiot or if there is something i should be spending more or less on. i dont really have a budget constriction but i feel i shouldn't need to spend more than $3k so thats the general budget for now. here is my build so far Mainboard - $ 289 ASRock Z170 Extreme6+ Motherboard Z170 EXTREME6+ ASRock Z170 Extreme6+ MB, Z170, 4x DDR4, 3x PCIE3.0 x16, 8x SATA3, 2x SATA Express, 1x M.2, 4x USB3.1, 8x USB3, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, ATX, Bundled Front USB3.1 Panel http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1151/60164-Z170_EXTREME6%2B CPU - $ 344 Intel Core i5 6600K http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/CPU/Intel_Socket_1151/60026-BX80662I56600K RAM - $ 295 G.Skill Ripjaws V F4-3200C16D-32GVK 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz DDR4 http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Memory/DDR4/61665-F4-3200C16D-32GVK/?member_pricing=true GPU - $ 709 ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1070, 8GB http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA/64953-DUAL-GTX1070-O8G Case - $ 175 Aerocool DS 200 Black ATX Case, Window, No PSU http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Cases/ATX/56305-4713105952728/?member_pricing=true PSU - $ 389 Corsair HX1200i 1200W Power Supply http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Power_Supplies/ATX/64029-CP-9020070-AU Hard Drives OS - $ 169 Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Hard_Drives_&_SSDs/SSD_-_2.5%22_&_PCI_Express/55984-MZ-7KE256BW Hard Drives Games - $ 189 Samsung 750 EVO Series 500GB SSD http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Hard_Drives_&_SSDs/SSD_-_2.5%22_&_PCI_Express/64071-MZ-750500BW Hard Drives Storage - $ 135 Seagate Desktop HDD 3TB, ST3000DM001 http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Hard_Drives_&_SSDs/HDD_-_3.5%22_Drives/44593-ST3000DM001 WiFi - $ 89 TP-Link Archer T9E AC 1900 PCI-E Dual Band Wireless Adapter http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Networking_-_Wireless/PCI_Express_Cards/58860-Archer_T9E CPU Cooling - $ 105 Noctua NH-U14S Multi Socket CPU Cooler http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Cooling/CPU_Coolers_-_AIR/49762-NH-U14S so i have opted to have a small fast ssd for Cdrive/ operating system and another larger fast ssd for a games drive. then the obvious larger hdd for files. 3t is plenty and easily up-gradable later on. i have gone for the I5 over the I7 for the obvious cost but also its overclocking capabilities which are very good. the graphics cars again i have gone for the GTX 1070 instead of the newer 1080. the cost difference for the jump in performance is large and tbh for a while im not gonna need the 1080.... im still second guessing myself on this one though. and yes the hdd cooling tower does fit in the case..... just the ram and the rest is self explanatory.. what do you think. anything you would change without blowing way over the $3k ish budget the cost so far (using SCOPRTECH) is $2898 online + $97 Delivery - $3129
  2. Hey guys, I haven't really been on the Skyline Forums for a long time. I've been a bit financially crippled concerning car stuff. And this is one of the reasons why. This is my first PC build, although I don't think I've felt confused or worried at any stage, which I guess is a good sign. I've done my research, and I think it will pay off. I'm currently studying IT at University externally, which is a massive challenge for me, but hey, bring it on. Anyway, I felt I needed something to build this year, which I knew I could manage and most importantly afford. I also felt I needed something to reinforce my coursework, by giving me the confidence in successfully completing an intricate PC build. I've been purchasing parts over several pays, one chunk at a time, so I've never had a set list of parts. I've kind of just winged it, with the help of PC Part Picker to confirm it will all fit. Anyway, so far, I have the following installed: BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX Case - Black Gigabyte GA-H87N-WIFI Mini ITX Mobo Corsair CX-600 PSU 80+ Bronze Intel Core i7 4770k (Over-clockable) BitFenix Spectre 230mm Blue LED Fan Intake BitFenix Alchemy Blue LED strip Antec Kuhler 650 H2O Liquid CPU cooler (Barely fit - Extremely painful to install in my setup) G.Skill Ares 16GB (2 x 8GB) RAM DDR3 1866MHz Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition Fans for a custom exhaust I modified for the roof of the case (See Images) I have bought a Gigabyte GTX-770 OC 4GB, which should arrive in the next few days, and should give me a beast of a gaming experience. Managed to pick a new one up on eBay, during their 10% off discount thing for a reasonable price. At this point, I've spent like $1700. I might be just over $2000 by the end of the build, not including a new monitor, keyboard and mouse. All I need now is an SSD, and a HDD, which I plan on being a Samsung 250GB and a WD Black 1 TB respectively. I also want a disk drive. Because I'm old skool yo. Now, pictures! (Sorry if some are blurry. Haven't taken photos with my DSLR in months) As this is my first PC build, I'd like your opinion. What do you guys think?

  5. Greetings Fellow Members From the huge craze due to this awesome game over the past year or so I thought it would be a good idea to play as forum members. Post your League names here and we can play some time Mine is "Lanorizzle"
  6. *Specifications at Half-Page* I am after $200 for BOTH of the monitors including the fantastic, sturdy, strong stand, power cables for both monitors aswell as two VGA cables. Can post at buyers expense, or deliver withing an hour of the Gold Coast, Southport area. With post, beware, the stand is roughly 8 kg's, plus the two monitors comes to about 11 kg's. So post might be expensive. I can also supply a seperate video card to suit any system (excluding MAC, Apple) at an additional cost, rangine between $30 and $60. This is for a basic video card, if you would like to purchase, or enquire about a performance video I can also supply. Just call me on the number provided and we can arrange anything. These would be perfect for a student or office workers. If you have never used dual screen setup you will adjust to the difference in seconds and you will never look back. Your abilities to multi-task triple and dual setups make working soo much easier. having documents on one screen with your information and excel on the other means no Alt+Tab to get your work done. As an ex student myself, these things are lifesavers for essays or research. You can even hook them both up to your laptop (as long as your laptop has dual screen out) so you dont HAVE to have a pc to utilise these beauties. Make sure before looking at buying thse that you are certain you can run dual screens. Look at the back of your PC tower where your monitors connect to, as long as you have two monitor connections, you can use these. 90% of the time, without additional software as most machines can easily perform with these standard. Dual monitors on sturdy stand. Fantastic condition, as new condition. no scratches or dead pixels. The stand is metal, strong and heavy, no threat of breaking or tipping, unless pushed over. The monitors are Hewlett Packard HPs1932. Proper WIDEscreens, LCD. They are both 18.5 inches in fantastic condition. Proper 16:9 ratios as they are widescreen. 500:1 minimum contrast ratio, 700:1 typical contrast ratio. nice and bright without being full of glare. They are 5ms typical response time. Good for gaming without ghosting. Anything under 10ms is considered great for gaming. I have not used them for games, only office work, so i can not comment on their gaming performance. They are both anti glare and anti static. Both with VGA plug connections Thin black edge surrounds again with zero scratches. I have upgraded to dual 27" monitors so obviously have no use for these. As for gaming. Triple screens are better as your character does not sit in the middle of the two screens, right where the border is betwee the two. But some games, for instance World of Warcraft have the ability to use an addon CTViewPort to put the image on both screens, but leave your character in the centre of one. Meaning you retain original character location, but you have an additional screen with extra landscape, and you can put your map, chat logs, bags, additional action bars, any extra addon ui's on the second screen, keeping your main screen primarily for your character and ESSENTIAL information. Instantly un-clutter-f*cking your main screen making your gaming experience better ten fold.
