    [Help] Need a headset with a decent mic(w/ noise cancelling)

    Hi For a long time one of my favorite brand is Sennheiser so my recommendation is the Sennheiser Gamer Zero it fits into your budget pricing 150 to 160 and the sound & mic quality is much better then the g930

    New system build

    I see no point in switching form i5 4670K to 7500 if you want a new system my recommendation is get a ryzen 1600 it has a discount & ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS or wait and get the Coffe lake. With Ryzen 3 and little bit of OC you get the best price to performance ratio and in my book it makes the...

    Hardware Unboxed benchmarks: Ryzen 3 vs. Core i5 2500K vs. FX-8370

    Point here is that you dont need a $100 mobo to run a stock fx8 And if the failure number was so high meaning that the $60 cant handle them in stock they would have been taken off the market.

    Can't Manufacturers implement a system to check what is being run to prevent miners?

    Like i said before let's leave You All out of the equation because you cant speak for everyone and i do not vote and there is a reason for it .

    Can't Manufacturers implement a system to check what is being run to prevent miners?

    Buyer beware applies in UK&USA but there are other countries that have higher standers for the second hand buyer. And under the Buyer beware there is a point "The only exception was if the seller actively concealed latent defects or otherwise made material misrepresentations amounting to fraud."

    But not telling is hiding the fact that it has been abused and in the right mind you will not buy that gpu.

    "First get your facts straight then distort them at your leisure" I could buy a 60eur motherboard witch had 4+1 Phase and run 6 and 8 FX on it.

    Yep now they are but a while back all the bundles where out of stock but i found standalone Vegas for sale and this was in Newegg. So that was an interesting thing to see.

    Correct me if im wrong but didnt They already try that with Vega and the funny thing was that all these bundles were out of stock before the standalone cards and also these bundles were sold @1900-2000$

    Oky i hear ya but its incorrect to say all people are...., now why would i want to prevent miners making money it makes no sense and i do not only care about myself i care about a lot of things including my clients who are in a way suffering because of the situation in the current gpu market and...

    You are not the only one whos pissed and answer to you question is no because of profit. So only thing is to wait for the market to cool down. I also want to upgrade my gpu to 570 but i wont at the moment.

    Hardware Unboxed benchmarks: Ryzen 3 vs. Core i5 2500K vs. FX-8370

    We are getting off track here and I'm not living in the past either :) but i made a decision @2012 not to pay twice as much knowing that the cpu i bought will get me through 5 years without a problem and it did so at the end of this year i'm going put together a new pc what will get me through...

    Hardware Unboxed benchmarks: Ryzen 3 vs. Core i5 2500K vs. FX-8370

    Not talking about oc because i said 30W like i said before there is no point of ocing 2500k if you but it up against fx8350. Oky and i was specifically talking about the time it came out because why should you buy it now and who is buying it now.

    Hardware Unboxed benchmarks: Ryzen 3 vs. Core i5 2500K vs. FX-8370

    So lets change one factor in my System to 2500k and now im saving up to 30W in total power consumption now saying that fx power consumption is so high that it will set you back a lot more is as smart as saying FX was only bought by people that never understood how bad it is.

    Hardware Unboxed benchmarks: Ryzen 3 vs. Core i5 2500K vs. FX-8370

    Oky yeah but lets stay on point here @that time 2500k did not cost 60eu in fact it was 200+ euros and G4560&Ryzen did not exist and the minimal fps do date dont justify me paying much more at that time.
