New tech is awesome but it's not worth the cost.

Why would i buy your four parts for 600 dollars when i can get a Ryzen 3600 and a X470 board, RAM, Case, and PSU for the same price, AND the newer boards have more features for less price, AND the CPU does just as well in multi-threaded tasks and better in games

EDIT: the fact of the matter is, old hardware is not worth the price anymore, because Ryzen has crushed the market in value. so you have to lower your prices to sell. This is why i haven't sold my older hardware, because i can still use it, and that's worth more to me than the little bit of money I'd get

Yes, but i tend to avoid USB microphones as they can have some weird static issues that seem less common in normal microphones

i'm going to follow up with the current top comment and recommend the SHP9500 and the V-moda boomPro, it's a very good, inexpensive combo and would serve you well

eventually i would save up for a nicer mic, something standalone, because you don't need it immediately

aesthetic in a PC build is one thing, i can even really get behind RGB keyboards and mice, they look nice on a desk, even if they're not my full cup of tea

a microphone is not an aesthetic piece. it has one function, and that function is to transmit sound

it'd be like getting RGB headphones, a waste of your money and you're paying more for an inferior product

alright seriously, you can get a top of the line PC and a DAC that will do you fine for well under 10K

http://audio.teac.com/product/ud-503/

like this one is the highest end i would go for a DAC/headphone amp

diminishing returns are too real with audio, and pretty much any source is going to not sound better than what this can put out

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Svchost Malware unable to be removed, please help!"

  • 2 months ago
  • 2 points

first off, disconnect the PC from the internet and don't let it back on the internet until you're sure all the malware is gone

1: run malwarebytes, see if it picks up anything

2: if it doesn't, go into safe mode and try again

3: if that doesn't work you could try booting to a linux system like Lubuntu, it runs off a USB drive. it would let you look through your windows install and pick out individual things to get rid of, plus you could probably scan with malwarebytes or something similar from Lubuntu

that's the general stuff i would try first, before you try deleting any svchost files

If this is going to influence your choice on a motherboard, then you need to take a step back, as all modern audio chipsets on motherboards are competent enough to power most headphones and sound decent

there are so many better things to worry about with motherboard options. i would consider getting a sound card or external DAC if you're concered about crappy audio

you can, the way USB wall chargers /car chargers work is they do not output more energy than is needed. The specifications on the chargers are the max output that they can supply.

Think of it like a PC power supply, you might have a 750 watt power supply in your computer, but it is not pulling that from the wall all the time.

the Blue Yeti is a very solid USB option for gaming, and is really common.

You could also invest in something like an Audio Technica AT-2020 USB. It is a higher quality mic than the blue yeti, but either option will work

On modern motherboards, the audio quality is much better than boards from 8+ years ago. you really won't have issues with on-board audio until you go back to pre-Haswell boards.

On the topic of what you are using for speakers, it will sound fine for day to day uses. The only reason you really need to get a proper DAC/amplifier is if you're doing audiophile levels of listening

  • 6 months ago

I disagree with you on the RTX 2060 being hurt due to the VRAM. it was a retail GTX 970 price for near GTX 1080 performance. it was a great card, and for the resolutions you would use that card, 6 GB of VRAM was plenty. All of the current 2000 series cards are still amazing in their own right, and i think a price reduction will help their sales, especially for people who were holding onto older cards waiting on upgrades.

with the TV it's probably worth around 350, but you have to worry about shipping it and shipping panels safely is hard.

all these prices i pulled are from the average of sold listings i could find on eBay.

you could probably get away with removing the CPU cooler (leave the backplate on) and removing the GPU. mechanical drives are pretty tough when they aren't powered on, and nothing else in the PC would be sensitive to movement.

Retail Pro keys (NOT OEM) normally have multiple activations on them, and can be reused a few times. i know they did with windows 7 Pro, and my windows 10 pro key has worked for all of my builds. I would buy one and try it on all the PC's before buying 3 keys

If it's cable then any DOCSIS 3.0 or 3.1 cable modem on Amazon should serve your purpose well, all you need to verify is that is supports 1 Gbps, as some older 3.0 models only go to 640 mbps.

a modem that handles 1.4 Gbps would set you back about 100 USD on average, but you might need a separate router for wifi purposes.

you might struggle with that as most expansion cards for USB C require a power connection due to the power output of the plug's standard, expecially for USB 3.1 gen 2

i did find this 4-port card however it might be substantially out of your price range

EDIT: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074QGBXSP/ref=psdc_229185_t3_B07L8KCQPT this two port card is much cheaper
