OK this has grabbed my attention! Albeit a B150 motherboard for Skylake CPUs, it's still a bloody good deal with the new Total War: Warhammer game free. The game is £40 alone on Steam. Just launched

Warhammer is incredible. Best Total War game in my view. I'm sure in a few months with mods it will be even better

Best getting lunar as above post said.

This doesn't have the grips that the Lunar controllers and new improved ones will have. I'd wait unless you absolutely need this design.
Unless you really need it now I would suggest you wait for the new and improved version which will also have bluetooth which will allow you to connect it to other devices as well.
avoid- I have just returned my dusk after about 2 weeks of use the inside mechanics are made of nothing but crisps- save up and buy a elite unless you just like the look of it. big disappointment.

Legisin
I see a lot of comments stating these cards are overpriced, and i do agree the costs are higher than we were expecting, but they are cheaper and faster than the 980ti's and with increased driver support they will get better and better

Regardless, it should be in the £330 ballpark just like the 970 was at its launch.
It's the same second tier down sku and should be priced accordingly. But the whole lineup is askew. Just look at the price of the 1080, even more expensive than any other card at launch (excluding Titan's). Ngreedia.

Rooting for AMD just like every sensible consumer. Competition is sorely needed.

Sorry but cold for me, when the evga ftw 1070 is basically the same price
Is that one better?
gigabyte is trouble free together with msi, they are UK based and will cost a little to send to them, if you lose the receipt or you buy second hand, you can sell for more as the warranty will be passed over to the new owner. Also, in the eventuality, they will put in account the serial number and when that was produced in the event that the receipt is lost.


​I wouldn't say trouble free, sure the 980ti was known for coil whine, yes great cards and company, I'd still go evga for the warranty which can be upto 10 years vs 3 years with gigabyte. I know cards like these it is down to preference with performance vs support when it comes to EVGA vs. Asus vs. MSI vs. Gigabyte
GamerJack95
so which is the best to 1070 to go for? in terms of performance that is, i remember MSI's 970 was considered one of the best at launch

This or MSI Z170-A PRO?
I have an MSI Z97 Gaming 3 and it's a cracking board, it was one of the few that still offers 2 PCI slots (yep, I still use pci cards, gasp), but also had more or less all the other features I was looking for (m.2, isolated audio circuitry, etc.). It's good to see they've done the same here for the new gen socket.

What OEM have kingston used on this model? The clouds were so good becusse they just redbranded the takstar pro 80 which was considered an audiophile level entry point vs othet gaming headsets that were way below audiophile grade

Yeah they pretty licenced Qpads QH-90's excellent packing included, (which as you say were inturn Takstar pro 80's) and sold them with a few tweaks of their own, I own Cloud 1 and 2, they are excellent headsets, good enough for general use as well.

These from what I've seen in reviews appear to be more gamer focused from the looks to the sound, which is a shame, I had hoped the Cloud 3 would have been based off the QH-85's as they are a open back design, something I prefer over the closed back design of the Clouds.

However heat for the price, it's just a shame they look so much like gaming heatsets.

​I've added SSD and it boots up quick once gets past the POST. It seems to take ages. Anyone else have an issue like that?


Have you updated the BIOS?
Bobbins
Received mine a few days ago. Mini tower is bigger than I thought it'd be (bigger volume than the case on my 2007 Dell Dimension C521!) but nay bother as it sits under a desk anyway.

Adding the SSD was not straight forward for me. For some reason W10 said no signed driver. When I got that fixed (more by luck than by judgement) I had another problem and had to convert the SSD to GPT partition. Eventually after a few hours I got it sorted and I'm very impressed. Boots up in 5 seconds.

At £79.99 for a monitor with this spec, I doubt it .

They now claim its £32.63 off, but still £79.99. Possibly why they moved the page?

Just to report, I ordered this from Amazon for the same price and it arrived in retail packaging as pictured on Amazon.

Compared to 3 and 6TB WD Red's it is just as quiet, no clicking, and the vast magority of most recent reviews on Amazon also mention this. I've been writing to it tonight and speeds are pretty much always above 100MB/s (114 at this moment) which I haven't seen on WD Reds (typically 60MB/S). I appreciate this is influenced by various factors, spin speed, empty unit, types of files, but its a significant and sustained improvement over compared to writing to new WD Reds.

They do run hot. After a few hours a WD would be very warm, but not too warm. I felt the need to use a pair of pants to pick up this Toshiba because I felt sure I would drop the thing. Based on being to tolerate it for about 10 seconds, I estimate it to be 60 degrees Celsius. I usually have fans blowing over drives, but have taken shortcuts with the WD Red's and have never witnessed such temperatures - Even when stacking them 3 or 4 high! With ventilation this Toshiba are no warmer than WD Reds.

They've just released an 8TB version.

My mistake, it was Hitachi that are reliable.
It's big data centers that report reliability.

You are still looking at around 1000.00 for an ssd this size. I know ssd is faster, I have a Samsung drive.

Still 10x the price for ssd.

The F3's were good drives and I still have some in use, had 'em for years.


​Big data centres don't report reliability because the hardware vendor usually deals with swapping drives, so the data centres never know what brands the drives are unless the are in certain brands of kit, e.g. HP use HP drives. Also data centre enterprise class drives are usually 10k or 15 drives, and for storage arrays they often have FC (Fiber Channel) interfaces, so the drives are nothing like normal consumer/PC retail drives and its hard to translate reliability in a datacentre where drives are powered on and being hammered 24x7 to retail consumer drives - it's like comparing apples to oranges.
By accident I just got a WD MyBook 8TB for £152 delivered ... ordered a £54 3TB recertified drive from their store, tried to cancel but they sent it out anyway(yes, despite UPS being asked twice to return to sender during transit they insisted on me telling the driver on the doorstep). Told the driver to "return to sender".

Then got a 20% off e-mail from WD(single use code) which I applied against an 8TB MyBook - discount price £190, less 20% voucher = £152.

Voted Hot.Best price for the Drive I could find. I've ordered one. I've seen Toshiba drives in laptops for years, generally been very reliable from experience. First 3.5" drive I am purchasing that's branded Toshiba. Hope it's OK.
Perfect timing. Good replacement for my WD which is about to fail. Looks like Stablebit Scanner has just paid for itself :)
Toshiba drives are the old IBM Deathstar drives aren't they? In which case I would not trust this drive at any price.

I do take your point about the PC specialist price, it is a little cheaper, but you also have to decide whose build is more reliable, both makers have decent reputations. You do I believe have to pay extra for more than a years warranty at PC specialist, this deal comes with 2 years included. This spec is good for HD video editing also, hence you should expect to pay more for such capabilities.
I paid £700 or 800 for an msi laptop in late 2013 (great btw) and the specs are not far off this. Or not far enough. For 1329 I would expect quite a lot more. Admittedly not studied the market.
http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/defianceII-17/

£1230 for the same general spec and guaranteed to know what hard drives you are getting as well as being built to your order.

Looking at a few other custom builders most are cheaper than this option with like for like core specs. Not sure I'd justify spending £1300 on a gaming laptop now that I've seen the light with having a half decent desktop that will perform just as well for a lot less money and change to buy a nice portable laptop to stream steam games to.

USB on a monitor - perfect for a wired XBO controller :)
rockthesmurf
A USB hub built into a monitor is quite handy, can plug in your keyboard, mouse, controller, etc. which is often more convenient than having wires running over to your computer case. Of course you can buy a USB hub instead, but still, asking whether it has a USB hub isn't a particularly weird question (to me at least).

Why would you need USB on a monitor???

No-one needs it, it's just nice to be able to plug your camera or whatever into the monitor instead of crawling around trying to find a USB port under the desk.

Is it worth investing in a 4K monitor?
That's like asking if you should buy a car....
Do you need one? Can you drive it with enough GPU power? What will 4k offer you? Do you understand how scaling works on 4k?
It's not a simple answer because it depends on what you need and your preferences.
For most people, even many professionals, 1440p is the sweet spot and will be for a number of years.
Thanks - so does 1440p run on a 1080p monitor or does a 1440p monitor exist?!

A 1440p monitor has a screen resolution of 2560×1440. Think of it as being midway between 1080p and 4k and you won't be far wrong.

Loads of 1440p screens on the market, some of them very high end (144Hz+, G-sync / Freesync / IPS and TN both available).

If you're looking for a good midrange 1440p screen at a reasonable price, check out the Dell 2515H: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2515h.htm

1080p at 27" - Ew.

I have to agree. I recently purchased a 1080p 24" monitor and to be honest, it's almost too much for the resolution.

In my opinion, 22" is the sweet spot for 1080 and for 27" 1440p would be much, MUCH better.

Speaking of which, does anyone have any recommendations for a 1440p 144Hz monitor sub £300? :D

Ahh, I'm so glad you're here. There's another reason we're all abandoning Nvidia, isn't there? You did suggest that you had some inside information about "big announcements" in March that would leave Nvidia high and dry, right?

may I recommend selling it on before the middle of March when there will be some big announcements being made.
The second hand market will be flooded with Nvidia GPU's after that.

Wait for the GDC conference in March before making up your mind for a future GPU and want facts.
Now, I like to think of myself as both fairly up-to-date on graphics tech, and a keen shopper. However, not only did I apparently miss these "big announcements", but I haven't seen all of these used Nvidia cards flooding the market. What exactly is it that I have missed?
The cynic in me wonders if you were just inventing something - anything - to forestall someone from buying a Nvidia card! Surely that's not the case? :{
Perhaps you should finally respond to Nate1492's comment:

"You keep using this word "facts" about things that haven't happened yet. You honestly do not know what the word "fact" means here.
Every NVIDIA thread you come into and talk about some mythical future event related to AMD.
At one point, you told people to wait for the Crimson drivers because they'd offer a huge performance boost. That was a lie/incorrect guess.http://www.anandtech.com/show/9811/amd-crimson-driver-overview/5
At one point you claimed the 300 line would be a massive upgrade compared to the 970.
The 300 series has not panned out.
Honestly, you make so many bold AMD claims that have never came to fruition. Why should we trust what you say about future AMD events? You've offered no proof and have no track record of your claims working out!
Because, to my eyes at least, it seems that you've just been sharing false information yet again.
Eriously though, you spend that much time on me. I'm flattered. Lol
Yes, I'm completely erious.
What happened at GDC last month that meant we should all abandon Nvidia?

(By the way, if you think it takes a long time to hit ctrl-D, and later copy/paste some text, it's possible that you may be experiencing some driver issues? Only takes me a couple of seconds.)

Good for you.

Lets take a look at how Nvidia continue to mess up this years drivers for their GPU's
The last three months they can't even get that right. Not even paid marketers/Astro turfers are able to stop the truth about poor drivers.

You cannot enjoy full potential of these boxes when they only have 1 gig of ram. I do not know why the manufacturers continue to do this & ruin their boxes for the sake of a pence pence worth of hardware.
Any recommendations on a 2 gig box?
I've got a Beelink M18 which is solid and fast and would recommend it. I've just ordered a really cheap S905 with 2g ram and 8gb rom for £26 from Gearbest to see what it is like after AndyRoyd pointed it out, but seems some spec for the cash: http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_334005.html

Yeah I've just gone for that one too!

To best of my knowledge the Sumvision X8 does not have bluetooth and any RK3368-based box does not support 10bit x265, and certainly mine does not. 10bit is def supported by S905-based boxes.

If you're OK with Gearbest shipping items from China, best value by significant margin is the S905-based £26 Mini M8S http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_334005.html . If the slow boat doesn't impress, 2GB options ex-UK start in low-mid £40s delivered, examples: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162007978988 or check fulfilled Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01CE8K2BW/ or http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0191LNFSC/ . UK stock is volatile at this pricepoint.
Thanks for the links. Any alternatives to Mini M8s? (which are better spec but bigger?) I don't need it to be small, I'm slightly concerned on heat issues.
I've had three variants of S905 box (including two that use identical-looking case to Mini M8S) and not had any heat issues, although watching a few vids and browsing is hardly taxing. Some S905s use a metal case which I assume may be beneficial, although the heat dissipation to the case may be more important, or just the internal heatsink / general design. The T95 has "metallic material" case (2GB version £53 http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01ANJI4A0/) and one of the earlier K series S905s definitely had metal case but can't remember which one (but it had near-unique 12V supply rather than 5V so a tailored keyword Google search may help identify it). The MXV+ is stated to have an aluminium case but please check (1GB £35 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191823538143, can't immediately find a 2GB version).
Maybe look at S905 reviews at Cnx-Software as heat dissipation / temperature observations are often included, example: http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/12/04/beelink-mini-mx-review/

What would make you want to buy this over the usual Sandisk 480GB deals that turn up on here?


​A great deal. For starters Intel guarantee that you can read your data off the device even when the drive has failed.

Intel ssds are simply the best... use them at work on virtual servers with huge drive loads/queues.
its £107.98 now :D

Hot deal, although am not familiar with this company, any feedback please
​I live 5 minutes form this company and have bought hundreds of things off them over the last 10 years, personal I have never head a single problem.
I think a quick Google of reviews should give you a good idea how big and how long they have been going.
I live about 10 minutes from this company and bought lots of stuff from them. Never had a problem with service. They have been going for years and years.
Bizarrely I live about 20 minutes from this company and built my first PC with parts from them about 15 years ago. Have used them on and off ever since and not had a single problem with them.

Dunno. Check the numbers. I'm not going to because I've probably wasted 5 years of my life reading reviews.
Ditto the wasted 5 years reading reviews, wasn't live so much easier when you just went out and brought something :)

Yes! When I spent about a week looking at RAM timings once I knew it had to stop.

With settings at low you may manage 30fps with those games and the i5 and gtx940m
Hoping you may be able to help me out.
What's the best (new) 17.3 inch laptop/specs I can get for gaming for max £500-550 ?
Trying to find something that plays BF4 decently at least.
(At least 30FPS on high if possible)
Looking for one with a 1600x900 resolution as 1920x1280 may
be unnecessarily and disproportionately taxing on performance while 900p is fine for me personally.


You are probably best going to pcspecialist or similar. Play around with their laptop builder on site. Notebookcheck will show you the processor and gfx capabilities.
CCL are now offering it as a clearance item at £849.98. Save £50.01.

Sorry I can't advise you Andrew, I'm neither a gaming nor a laptop expert, hoping someone else looks in to help.

This isn't too bad. I got a i7 5700hq, 970m, 8gb ram, 128 gb ssd 1tb hdd for £650 a few weeks back.

Wow what a deal. From where please?
