    How does this revised build look?

    I didn't change the monitor because I'm fine with that for now. Probably going to buy a second one, too, so I can watch videos while I slowly kill myself farming Hells.

    looks fine except the headset

    and why do you need a pci ethernet adapter when the mobo has one already

    When are you exactly making the purchase? I'll come up with something depending on the date since sales pop up.

    Headset is to hold me over until I can afford something better.

    Oops. I meant to add a wireless adapter, not a wired one... I forgot this desktop already has one, though, so I'm just gonna take it out since I don't need to buy another one.
    I'm planning on buying parts this week when my refund check hits. I'd wait for sales closer to Christmas time, but I'm tired of using a piece of shit.

    Ditch the headset. Get something more affordable for headphones with a zalman clip on mic... @matt tagging you in on this one.

    As for the Monitor and Mouse... Try looking at local classifieds otherwise try to bring up some extra cash for a decent monitor that's not AOC ( try asus, benq or samsung depends on sales if worse comes to worse go with acer but seriously fuck AOC). And for mouse if you think the deathadder is fine then go for it... but you may like something like the ZOWIE series of mice or maybe Mionix.

    Here's a youtuber I suggest when it comes to mice reviews.

    I've also went with 8 gigs of ram because it's pretty cheap right now and you can get another 8 later on ( you'll be fine with 8 right now). I've also dropped down to a locked version of an i5 because you won't be overclocking there isn't a huge need to do so as you'll be running everything at high settings at ease. As for the SSD that's something you can get LATER ON because it isn't a must and all of the cuts I've made are in order for you to get the GTX 1070 which is the main focus of this build.

    I hope you didn't open atleast the box for the graphics card... because you are missing out on alot of frames by going with the 1060.

    The build I linked costs just about the same/less than the one you linked even if you include the mouse monitor and headphones and outperforms it pretty hard.

    This is the first place where I want to ask. Anyone know what causes an OS (Windows 7, in my case) to not boot up at all? I give my laptop the username and password, and then it just...loads. I still see "Welcome" on the screen and even though it looks like it's loading, it's not booting up. I end up turning off the laptop and trying again every time that happens. Is it a hardware problem?

    yea, i know. but its a really good deal (in terms of cost at least) and ive been semi-interested in a keyboard for a little while now. i'm not in any real need for one so waiting until november to get my shit doesnt bother me all that much

    problem is that i don't know anything about mech keyboards other than simple shit like color switches, so i don't know if this is a good investment regardless of the price cut

    mechanical keyboards have actual switches underneath them that give the keyboard the *click* sound thats more apparant as well as having a better response time due to the fact the the physical switch is sending a signal as opposed to a regular keyboard.

    hello friendos, my 2nd monitor came in(hp 25vx) exactly the same as my pavilion 25bw hp. I'm going to be using dual monitors, however, my GPU, gigabyte r9 280x only has one DVI-I port and an HDMI port, I don't know which adapter will work with what, and I don't want to keep returning to stores or ordering different cables before I get the right one. while this guys problem is similar it is not exactly the same, but it has some problems that I may run into, and I'd like to avoid those: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2373780/dual-monitors-280x.html

    if you guys know which cable I should get to use dual monitors, id very much appreciate it, thanks.

    edit: ordered this,
    HDMI to DVI Cable, Rankie CL3 Rated High Speed Bi-Directional HDMI HDTV to DVI Cable 6ft - R1107
    , coming in tomorrow, hope it works out
    cant link directly to amazon for some reason

    So my computer went through a series of BSOD's that were mostly resolved by a re-install of the OS.
    Unfortunately it appears that the OS is still corrupted in places and neither SFC nor DISM are able to fix the problem, so I'm going to be nuking everything and start from a fresh install.

    Does anyone know if the fresh install will use brand new data or will it attempt to draw from any data previously found on the drive?

    So, after finally reaching a stable clean install of Windows 10, I found my problem:
    A bad RAM stick.

    Gonna work with just 1 for now until I can find a good deal on a 2 or 4 set.

    This will work fine for you, but it is never late to have that PC, because you could play some games that requires a rating of 6.0/possibly 7.0 (I am talking about these points in Windows 7, but I have Windows 10)

    Also when you buy that PC, if YOU HAVE an antivirus, UNINSTALL it. Windows Defender has worked fine for me; if in Windows Vista/7 Microsoft Security Essentials was not useful, that updated Defender should work fine.
    There is no need to install any antivirus: Windows Defender may not be the best, but it has good capacity as all good antivirus...
