I'm set on a GTX 1080 TI.
I can be flexible, but any help would be so much appreciated.

Budget wise I can be flexible, but what's the best I can do if were strictly trying to build this rig around that GPU.

Any help would be super appreciated. Thank you so much.

How fast is the monitor? If you're not trying to push 144fps, maybe you should get a GTX 1070 instead and sell it after a while.

My current monitor is 1440p at 144hz

I am wanting that GTX 1080 TI. My budget is 2500 - 3000, but I don't need any top of the line parts except for the CPU and a good MOBO and I don't want any fancy accessories so I wont pay that much if I don't have to.

The 4k monitor is going to be gifted and I'll sell my current monitor.

Can anyone help me with a build; I need that GPU and a capable CPU. With decent MOBO and a large SSD, I don't need any other fancy parts. 3000 dollars is the maximum.
I haven't bought a rig in over 5 years, and it's been dead for a year.

Someone help me, please.

You'll always need a proper PSU for that rig... I heavily encourage you to throw a bit of extra money into PSU safeguards that actually work... and a proper surge protector.

jonnyguru.com is the perfect review site for finding stable, reliable PSUs... if you can understand the graphs and jargon.

CPU: I recommend an I7 or similar Ryzen with GTX 1060s and above
RAM: Unless you overclock, any value series RAM will be sufficient.. get 8 or 16 gb, up to you
Mobo: Asus, MSI or Gigabyte if you want some of the best... if you overclock, Asus boards are some of the best and have been for a long time.
SS Get a 256 GB or a 512 if you absolutely need it... samsing evo SSDs are quite good for games.
HD Keep your SSD small(ish) and buy a 1-2 TB HDD or two for your pr0nz (I stick to WD blue/black or Seagates)
GPU: GTX 1060 and up

The 1060 is decent for most stuff, including VR and most 4k applications. The mobile version in my laptop easily pulls off Elite Dangerous on Ultra with 8x FSAA in HD for my vive.
My laptop is an MSI GT62VR if you want to compare some specs... I'd personally find this a good build for a desktop PC that's not completely over the top.

If you're going gloser to $3,000, You can easily budget in a higher end CPU, which you will need if you're trying to make use of a 144hz monitor. Otherwise:

-Completely remove SLI and Crossfire from your mind. It's a dying technology and with DX12 shifting the support off the GPU manufacturer and to the game developer, fewer and fewer games are supporting it. AMD's still kinda trying to innovate on Crossfire (since two GPUs is pretty much their "high-end solution" at the moment) but SLI is on it's deathbed.

-Get a decent modular 650w PSU. There's no reason to get a 1000w PSU in this day and age unless your running a render farm. The efficiency of a PSU works on a curve so there comes a point where if you're running it either overloaded or underload, you'll be wasting more electricity. 650w is a good efficiency sweet spot for a basic system with one GPU. an i7/R7 CPU with a GTX 1080 will only pull about 400w from the wall so you'll be more than golden. I recommend Corsair's RMx 650w PSU. Great build quality and a 10 year warranty.

-Don't waste money on current-gen PCie nvme SSDs unless you're working on big projects like editing a film. A normal SATA3 SSD is just fine. Yes, they have higher bandwidth but latency is nearly identical to SATA3 SSDs you won't notice the performance when starting up your system or loading up a game. You'll only ever notice the performance when loading up single, multi-gigabyte file. For the HDD, just keep using your current one and upgrade down the road as needed. Prices of storage are constantly falling so it makes no sense to spend more today when you won't need that storage until tomorrow when the same drive will be cheaper.

>but SLI is on it's deathbed
The applications where multi-GPU is very useful are compute applications, not games.
VR-SLI (gpu per eye) could be promising but no support.

>Don't waste money on current-gen PCie nvme SSDs
Intel has cheaper ones, but don't trade capacity for speed when you could just get an older style drive. 512GB is a good size to pair with a HDD, and that setup will be cheaper than a 1TB SSD.
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/consumer-ssds/600p-series.html

>Get a decent modular 650w PSU.
Yeah 650w is a good target, but you can get a higher rated PSU for the same price in a lot of cases if you don't mind it being a bit longer.


OP can easily afford an i7-6700/7700k. If OP is going for a budget over 2000 bucks that opens up the socket 2011 high end platform. I don't know that it would be necessary, but it's a solid bump in CPU multithread performance. I'm not following all the frame-time benchmarks or anything.
I'd either consider my build a professional workstation and go 2011, or just save the money for VR.

If you can find a retailer that still have them, Creative Fatal1ty headphones... they are about the equivalent of £50-£60 in Denmark.
You can get them in 3.5 mm jack or USB versions... USB has a bit richer sound to it, but both are really good foro their price..

projectors are a different point entirely... If you want a good picture with a projector, you'll need to do some measurements for the room(s) you want it in first, if you don't want nasty surprises with them (unable to focus, stuff in the way, etc)...

I've seen a few companies and home users buy wrong projectors for their room setup, often with image quality problems. Mostly it's enough to move the unit back a few inches, however if you plan to mount it, make sure to do your measurements.

Regardless, doing projector calculations, will ensure you buy the right one for your setup, and that you get a clear picture..

I bought a house recently and two rooms have no lighting and lack the wiring to quickly add a ceiling light. Because I own the Amazon echo I am wondering if there is a product that would
-be battery operated
-able to be attached (stuck to or screwed to) to the ceiling
-controlled (on/off/dim?) though amazon echo
-large & bright enough that it can be the main light in a 12 x 12 room

Any chance you know of this product? I have tried tons of different Google queries. Pic unrelated

It probably wouldn't be helpful if I suggested you should stay away from internet enabled lightbulbs because iot insecurity is going to be the next major internet crisis, right? No? Ok.

My best guess is that what you're looking for is one of those things that's just too niche to exist yet. If it did exist you'd be changing the battery all the time anyways, because even when it's "off" it would need to have the wireless running.

Here is the problem. You want it battery operated, bright, AND stuck on the ceiling.

Those things don't all play nice together.

Do you have power to the room? If you do, setup some floor lamps with Philips Hue bulbs. The starter kit with two dimmable warm whites is like $70 now. And guess what? Fucking works with Amazon Echo like a breeze. Works off your cell phone too. Just plug the lamps in, turn them on, and then configure in the app. Wanna get funky? Upgrade to the color bulbs and you can build your own fucking disco.

First you need to mirror the site either through scraping or the API. Then you need to ingest everything into a database. Rinse and repeat unless you just want a snapshot. Once you want a report, skip Oracle Reports because wtf are you doing with your life and proceed directly to knitr. If the report generation is the only part of this that you don't understand, it's stupidly easy. If not, good luck.

It's a valid concern. I beleve many of the sites have a q&a and asks, if roms are legal. Essentially they are for a backup for an arcade you own. I have had some.
But no not law enforcement but copyright laws 'could' apply. But essentially the
project was/is intended to archive the games, literally many of them would never have seen the light of day again if not for the project, not would people know some most of them actually ever existed. I assume you have played at least 5 of them in your life yourself?

It doesn't really matter how big of a file it is, it matters if publishers are watching the torrent and whether your ISP cares. At worst (in the US) your isp participates in the 6 copyright strikes system, a publisher reports you, and you get your first strike. It would come with a warning letter or click-through warning from your ISP. Look up the "Copyright Alert System" to see how that works.

Theoretically a big Mame torrent would have roms from hundreds of companies in it. If any of those companies is super protective of their intellectual property, they could send a complaint to your ISP and give you that strike. For instance, Nintendo is protective of their ip. We can assume one of the roms in there is for Ice Climber.

In practice, I haven't heard of any individual catching a strike for roms though. I've only heard of big sites getting takedown requests. TL;DR maybe there's a slight risk of a strike, but the stakes are so low, who cares?

There are different roms. Mame are arcade game roms. Like Ms Pacman upright/cocktail cabinets. Nintendo did make mario bros, donkey kong etc.
There are rom dumps from chips. Nobody has made any legal action that I know of for dumpng these roms.

Ice climber is a console game. I assume even the newest console games and what have you
are being copied. Not sure what they do with cartridges, I assume they have chips as well. These are a bit more sketchy to deal with than old arcade games.

Pinball machines are still being produced, they can be emulated but the progress is slow and the emulation is generally just plain sloppy. But hose could be a target as well as newer console games. playstation comes to mind. I see no issues of people being targeted if people are not selling these, as in stuff with near identical packaging, or masss sharing of these newer media.

My opinion is mostly if you are sharing files, whatever they may be. At the highest speeds, whether one knows they are sactually uploading files or not. Especially 24/7, if one knowcks upload speeds down to day 2, 3 kbs. The stopps the upload as soon as they match the I don't think they would not bother messing with people much.

Say one group, has say three download servers that downloaded a new movie
is say 20 minutes, then another group of servers of the same corporation download the samemovies = others of the same media company, then in a few days later then I think they would be more interested in those, rather than a turtle slow 3 kbs upload that would take as many days to finish a download.

As in if one constantly shares movies, media at fast speeds then they are essentially giving away at least parts of media to maybe hundreds of people every ten minutes or whatever.

Sup, I have no idea about video cameras or camcorders and want some advice. Since Newegg and others yield these shitty results containing a thousand chinese imports with no reviews, I have no idea what to look for.

I need something to:

>720 or 1080 video
>Record up to 1hr continuous videos, or at a minimum of 20mins if I can't get this feature
>USB or Firewire compatible
>Priced around 150-200 USD
>Can record without being plugged in/new batteries for 1hr
>Rechargeable would be nice.
>Preferably have a high speed function capable of recording rapid motion mechanical shit and not be a complete blur. I doubt I'll find this in the price range but it would be very nice for demonstrations
>Be rugged enough to not break within a year of use
>If it matters, it doesn't have to take audio because I have external microphones to do that. I'm open to unconventional ideas such as security cameras if they take decent video.

So far I've found some really cheap "Zoom" cameras and Sony Handycams. After wading through a mile of shitty chinese no-name junk. Is there a website for finding cameras? Newegg has turned into alibaba it seems.

He actually got more specific, implying that if he were to receive Facebook messages for example, it would probably reset the timer and even pull him out of the 'Away' status on Skype making him appear as 'Online' again.

tl;dr Can things like receiving Facebook messages keep both your Mac awake and keep your Skype status online, even if you're not interacting with it?

PS: Yes, I'm trying to find if somebody's bullshitting and ignoring my ass.

Thanks!

Sure, if skype can receive instant messages, as well it is a phone service.
I would definitely say it is always active as long as the computer is on.
As well as a service, it would be active in the background when the
computer is off as well.

yes programs and apps can fuck with the computer/ phone sleep mode
easiest way to spot this is battery time

I've had a Galaxy S5 for about a year now and its done me great up until a few days ago. the screen is cracked as well as majorly fucking up.

I dont need such a big phone that isnt comfortable to use with one hand. I'm looking for something with a smaller screen with the same performance or greater than the s5. something that isnt slow in 2017 and can handle everyday apps just fine for around $200

What would you guys reccomend? and is the iPhone 5s still good today for the money?

They're also $700 unsubsidized.

I save $35 a month by using an old Galaxy S4 out of contract it cost me 85 bucks. Probably the oldest bitchin' phone you can get. No official VR support but the screen is still nice.

If you up your budget by about 30 bucks you can get a ZTE Blade v8 Pro which has pretty good specs for the price.
Dual camera so you can take bokeh pics (if you're into that)
good processor,
3GB ram
8MP front camera
compatible with 5GHz wifi (AC)

I was gonna buy it, but alas ZTE locked the bootloader so there's no way to root, which is a deal breaker for me.

But if you don't care about that it's a damn good phone for the price.

That is just part of the stock android options, but it seems ZTE has locked access when trying to use adb commands to unlock the bootloader for rooting, as no root is available.

I will direct you to this xda thread
