Im building a budget i9 x299 rig. (i need a lot of pcie lanes but the lowest price, x99 is also a good choice but i want something newer)

Motherboard Asrock X299 Taichi XE from ebay 1y wr. 150 Eur
CPU: I9 7900X ES from ebay 100 Usd
Cooler: Thermalright ultra 120 extreme (6/12 heatpipes) from local store 13 Usd + two new Arctic P12 fan ~10 usd

I have from older builds:
8x8 Gb DDR4 ECC REG 2666 (i used these in my X99, C621 builds)
Superflower 750W platinum (it is a strong and quiet psu)
2x Intel P3600 800gb u.2 to pcie SSD (was almost free)

Quadro M2000
Tesla M40 modded for gaming and a few pcie risers
Dell H310 modded to LSI 9211-8i and 6tb HGST Sas drive (from few scrap server for free)

The motherboard supports ecc reg ram but just with the older bios, but i modded the newest bios with the old intel microcode so i can use the new features and ecc reg support.
There will be no overclock on the cpu, it is not unlocked and not really an i9 but a Xeon W 2155 ES that works in x299.

No fancy features to brag about, but the S2721QS earned recommendations from RTINGS, Tom's and other sites for being the best 4K display in its price range. It's an IPS office monitor with outstanding text clarity and sub-pixel precision that has great ergonomics.

Since I'm happy with 60 fps and spend most of my time working with text, this display fits my needs perfectly. It should also scale well to 1080p when my GPU can't keep up.

If only I'd known how bad the fan market was about to get the day I tried suggesting to a national retailer their selection of fans (and air coolers) was a bit stale just a few years back. US$200 for three vanity fans and proprietary accessories... o_O

I was confused when they assumed I thought more expensive equaled more better. Would've rather bought a Chromax (or Scythe) from them than an online retailer despite it coming at a premium price. Much less been able to find the one or two better options for radiators show up in their house brand Inland. All of the above without massive retail markup for the name brand would've been highly agreeable.

What are the Playstation keys for?

I've had two EVGA mouse wheels fail and thankfully the third mouse has lasted until Amazon had a sale:

Sadly the scroll wheel on those are horrid, I had one and I kept slipping on it.
The new versions have a rubberised scroll wheel that's 100x better.
Nothing wrong with the mouse otherwise though.

The new versions have a rubberised scroll wheel that's 100x better.
Nothing wrong with the mouse otherwise though.

I'm not sure which one I have but it comes with a button situated next to the wheel - once activated, the rubberized brakes are applied. Once deactivated, you get a super fast infinite scroll effect... which i admit at first was annoying to use but over time i've got used to it.

At first I thought you might be talking about my failing EVGA mice, but then finally opened the Logi today, and sure enough, it's just a plastic, non rubberized wheel. Not too crazy about that. Even the cheap wireless keyboard/mouse sets I have around are rubberized. :shadedshu:

At first I thought you might be talking about my failing EVGA mice, but then finally opened the Logi today, and sure enough, it's just a plastic, non rubberized wheel. Not too crazy about that. Even the cheap wireless keyboard/mouse sets I have around are rubberized. :shadedshu:
That is indeed the exact wrong place to pinch pennies, logitech.

After I realized that I needed another DP-HDMI cable (rather than the DP-DP cable I had bought), I said F it, I am not wasting money on other of those stupid HDMI cables (DisplayPort forever!), so I decided to just look for a monitor with a DisplayPort. Iiyama's are hard to find in the US, so I decided to look for business monitors (I don't trust all the regular consumer garbage that fails within 2 years, especially not LG or Samsung) and found this HP on eBay. I had seen an older HP with a manufacture date of late 2013, so I thought that I was buying an 8 year old monitor (like my Iiyama) for $54 with a big white scuff/scratch on the stand, which is fair enough. Then it arrived yesterday and I was unpacking it today when I saw that it came in its original HP box, so I thought, "that's nice". Finally, I opened it and saw that there was still a protective plastic sticker on the HP logo on the back (there were also some other protective plastic stickers still attached) and I thought, "wow it must be brand new", so I check the manufacture date: january 2022! So I basically bought a brand new B stock 1080p business monitor for $54 on eBay. Hopefully it will last a couple years until I have the money to buy a $400-500 1440p or 4K Iiyama.

It has a much nicer menu than my old Iiyama, including low blue light mode. The minimum brightness (I have it set to 2/100 currently) it is still pretty bright though but not painfully so. The buttons are less annoying than those on my Iiyama and the bezels are much smaller. For those interested it is specifically a HP P22h G4
