Can you point me in the direction of an article either from tomshardware.com or somewhere else that discusses this?

Another question. Let us say i have headphones and a mic and speakers that i want to connect to an external DAC. To switch betweem speakers and headphones, would the DAC have a switch to make it easy or is there something I can buy that lets me switch them off and on (turn off headphones and turn on speakers)?

Thanks

Just a heads up. You don't have a DVD drive and I think Windows 10 oem comes in dvd format. If you want to install Windows 10 from USB you might have to buy the retail version instead.

I bought a laptop with an AMD 6970. It died after 3 years and the heat probably killed the card. Card life is sometimes linked to card heat output and I feel that AMD cards (like mine which ran at 100 Celcsius) run too hot and are therefor poor quality.

It wasn't forced. So I guess some cables look the same even though they were plugged in incorrectly. Still though, can this cause the system to crash?

I always factor into the choice of a part how good the reviews or ratings are on newegg or amazon. Some motherboards have poor user reviews and some not. That is also very important to check.

It depends on what resolution monitor you will have.

Forgot. This is only with games and stuff. Some applications like rendering or others can be tough on the processor. If you are doing certain things, forget what, then a better processor can help. Seek further information on this if you suspect that some of your applications might benefit more from a better processor.

To DDRueter. From what I understand a 1080 graphics card only needs a decent i5 processor. Upgrading to an i7 won't do very much. But upgrading the graphics card when possible, is preferable as the bottleneck is the GPU in most cases. So in other words, an i5 is just fine.

I changed a few things. Firstly I got a different gpu that has more solid reviews. I also researched a bit more and found out that g-sync works mainly when the fps are low around 60fps. So I got a different monitor with 144hz and regular resolution. If there is anything else anyone can think of I will check for a new post here.

I suspect that when you returned your PC parts they sent the originals back if they thought they were not broken. Like they just plugged it into a computer saw it booted and shipped it back. Also it could be an incompatability between parts such as using ram that is not supported by the motherboards website.

Thanks. I am not sure if i will overclock yet. What do you recommend for an air cpu cooler if i do decide to overclock? I also plan sli. Also, i checked the feature list on a cheaper motherboard and it has sata expresss. Will i want to plug my 850 evo into a regular sata 6gb/per sec or into the sata express connector?

Thanks
