    I wonder, if you there's something you're either willing to buy or just very, very curious to try out as far as PC hardware goes, what would it be ?

    I've got two items on the list. First is alienware AW2518H 240Hz G-sync panel

    [​IMG]


    second is the G903 mouse with the Powerplay wireless charging pad

    [​IMG]


    I've a huge itch to try them out and just be blown away by how smooth and comfortable the gaming experience would be. Plus both the monitor's and the mouse's aesthetics are so friggin rad :D

    share what's on your wish list too :clap: :lovetpu:

    Quite a lot tbh.
    Tr 1920X
    DDR 4x32Gb
    Nvme ssd
    1600watt psu ,i have a Vega:).
    5xsecond hand rx580

    But what im really itching about is me chair, Im getting a new pc chair but can't decide between normal office y type or one of those playtech car racing seats with pedal and wheel mounts.
    I am thinking i don't like sitting at a desk at home anyway and the car seat looks more comfortable.

    Is "Yes" an acceptable answer?

    Well I just got a great deal on something I really wanted which was new 5.1. I got the Logitech Z906s for 30%off I just couldn't pass it up.
    My wish list is probably just a nice Sapphire custom Vega 56

    I have a playseat/G25 combo and my PC Chair is a "racing bucket" it's quite old now well before it became a popular thing but it's genuinely comfortable. The playseat isn't as comfortable and well you're sitting in the floor now and your desk is now pretty much eye level(at least mine is)

    Well my i5 is aging (quite well i might add, there is no game i can't play on it), but i can really use a new platform, something like:
    Intel I5 7500
    4x4GB Kingston 2133 mhz DDR4
    ASUS board to go with these 2
    And maybe, just maybe, an upgrade from my 280x to a Vega 56 or 580 4GB

    Since ill be using 1080p monitors i think these things i would like to try out and ho do they work out for me.

    Don't say you're planning to raise the power limit and OC the core, are you crazy :kookoo:

    :p

    and that reminds me, a second hand 950 Pro 512GB with aqua computer kryoM.2

    http://sklep.gamestore.pl/bloki/201...yom2-pcie-30-x4-m2-ssd-z-chlodzeniem-pasywnym


    not for OS, 850 Pro is doing an amazing job for the OS drive. Just for games cause my own imaginary reasons :D

    That's probably what you would need to run a threadripper + vega system on your PSU in passive fanless mode.
    Get superflower, show this brand some love they deserve for creating equally excellent PSUs as Seasonic does in every respect, yet it's always the latter always hogging the limelight for #1 choice for PSUs.

    It is in my bedroom ,it needs to be quite and its been on seven years 24/7 so noise has always been a consideration ,24/7 flat out at about the volume of rain dripping outside is what i wish to maintain.
    Plus my trusted Ax1200 has seen better days now, since i nearly (well one whole sata wire and its connectors turned to dust)set it on fire with a coolant leak while it was powering four rx580s

    but i will be happy with 64 GB of 3200MHz RAM (at current memory prices both cost almost the same).
    and a corsair H115i which i will get next month.

    I'll probably need to think about putting this 3930k to rest next year. Thus needing a complete overhaul with a 1080ti and a 165hz monitor or two

    glad you explained it's a car computer, I thought you needed to go on amazon's DVD section.

    Anyway, I wish I had a 22" 1080p thin bezel monitor with pivot to put vertically alongside my S2716DG. All I can find for the money I'm willing to scrooge on this extremely useful upgrade are some ugly thick bezel ones though.

    Arctic MX-4 and 2x Arctic F12 PWM PST fans, because the rattle of my current fan is really annoying.

    Oh yeah, and as far as noise goes, I wanna replace my two 7200rpm HDDs with a 2TB Ironwolf drive. Manufacturer reports 20/21db in the specsheet, which is nothing short of amazing. The quietest WD Red reports 24db. Then, replace two ML120 fans,which arem't really supposed to be case fans, with 3x 140mm bequiet silent wings 3.

    So the complete list goes:

    alienware 240Hz monitor
    g903+powerplay pad
    950 Pro + adapter
    22"/24" monitor with pivot and thin bezels
    IronWolf 2TB
    bequiet silent wings 3 140mm x3

    I want the limited-edition WC VEGA card to completely my TR build, and a new monitor to replace my now-dead Dell 3008WFP, which was my main monitor for nearly a decade.

    I want a huge whack of SM961 1 TB drives, too. I need about 20 of them....:banghead:
