Forum Topic "YouTube and Twitch laggy"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

i5 8400 GTX 1060 6GB 8GB RAM 1TB Hybrid HDD

The friend I mentioned has a GTX 1060 3GB instead.

Forum Topic "YouTube and Twitch laggy"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

No, and just my video drivers? One of my friends who has a very similar spec PC to mine was saying YouTube was stuttering for him.

Forum Topic "CS:GO Battle Royale thoughts?"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I know, but finding ammo takes forever and is very luck based. Most of the time I won't even have a full clip.

Forum Topic "CS:GO Battle Royale thoughts?"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

The battle royale needs a LOT more ammo and more/easier to get weapons.

Forum Topic "What is your favorite holiday"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 2 points 4 months ago

Christmas is my favorite holiday because I get to see my whole family, I get presents, and I just like the Christmas-y vibe (except once Christmas is over its just gone instantly so oof).

Forum Topic "Gaming WHILE streaming"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

If you already have the GTX 1060 previously, I'd say this is a good start. Like what minininja0412 said, I would suggest getting 16GB of RAM.

I actually use DVI-D because there is no DisplayPort port on the monitor but thanks for the advice :)

Forum Topic "Need a Fortnite Squad to grind XP"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Although I couldn’t join you to grind XP (because I’m slightly bored of Fortnite right now), I can confirm that for Drift and Ragnarok, you can level them up out of Season 5.

Forum Topic "Emulating Note 9 on Nox Player"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

I heard that you don't have to preorder the Galaxy Note 9 to be able to do it, and also, the Galaxy skin is out on the Galaxy Note 9 and Tab S4 in the in game item shop from 8/24/18 to 12/31/18 so I have a lot of time.

hypergalaxy8's Completed Build: My First PC Build! Nightlight

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I haven't, thanks! Haven't looked it up yet, but what fan settings would you recommend that would be a good balance between cooling (ideally under 80C) and noise? I have noticed that this summer, my room and only my room has been hotter and I think my PC is a contributing factor.

Forum Topic "Make it so people can hear only my voice through my mic"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I’m thinking about figuring out how to lower the volume on the mic, and moving it closer to my mouth. Or, is there a way for me to bind a key on my keyboard to mute/unmute my mic? Corsair K55 by the way.

Forum Topic "Nintendo Switch not connecting to iPhone hotspot"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I heard it was because the way AT&T sets up the NAT or whatever. However, I am able to connect to my mom’s iPhone SE hotspot, which is also AT&T. What I did to get it work the first time was hope I would get a different error code, which I did (2110-2203 instead of 2110-2003).

You put an i5-8400 instead of the listed R5 2600.

Forum Topic "Fortnite Season 5 is soon, what do you want from it?"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

A season on Fortnite lasts 70 days. Each Season there is a battle pass that has skins, pickaxes, gliders, loading screens, emotes, XP, and more. They do not intend to give a competitive advantage. However, if your daughter plays with friends who all have the Battle Pass, they will get an XP boost together + the current self XP boost. If your daughter spends "a fortune each season to step up faster and collect as much skins as possible," that means she is buying tiers (which has a new unlock, there are 100 this season). Buying tiers is not required however since there are challenges that can make the tier go up.

Forum Topic "Fortnite Season 5 is soon, what do you want from it?"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I don’t get wins often, I did have a random 3 win weekend recently. Also, I play with my friends often and they are pretty good (3-6 kills average, same with me) and they have a lot more wins in the same time frame... I need to play with them more often. Plus, I would get the benefit of bonus XP which is nice.

Forum Topic "Fortnite Season 5 is soon, what do you want from it?"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

It seems a bit dark for Fortnite. To be honest, I would like for Season 5 to be more casual like Seasons 1-3 were. And also, the victory umbrella MUST be a beach umbrella or I’ll be mad. I’m Level 74 and I am pretty confident I’ll make it. Yesterday, there were 13 days left, now there are 14 days left, meaning we got 2 days somehow?

Forum Topic "Extreme Corsair RGB PC"

Don’t 100% take my word for it, but it looks like a great PC build. Send me a link to the completed build (when done) and upload pictures!

  • Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc):
  • Operating System required:

I’ll be able to fix the part list better with a pcpartpicker link, if you can’t give me the link can you fill this out?

Forum Topic "$500 Full Setup for Fortnite on Low Settings 1080p 40-80 FPS"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

He can stretch for $550. I am also going to be recommending a monitor that is $20 less (AOC 1080p, IPS) meaning that $20 more can be spent. If possible, include a new power supply unless if the included one isn't going to stop working/be a fire hazard with the GTX 1050. Also, I would like for him to have at least 6-8GB of RAM.

Forum Topic "Looking for a Fortnite squad to grind XP with"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Yep, I am going to try to save Week 8+ for Double XP weekend (assuming it is happening since it happened in Season 3) so I can get a lot of levels. Good thing you get XP instead of Battle Stars when you get to Tier 100 compared to Season 3.

Forum Topic "Looking for a Fortnite squad to grind XP with"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Yes, currently at the start of Level 64.

Forum Topic "8 GB or 16 GB 2400 or 3200"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

The power supply may be a fire hazard (knowing the B3 is), I HIGHLY recommend a Corsair CXM550 (2017).

Forum Topic "What would this pc be worth if i was to sell it ???"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

The integrated GPU on the 2200G is a little bit less powerful than the RX 550, so you can get rid of it.

Forum Topic "Cheap gaming keyboard and mouse setup for under $40"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

He is (probably) getting multiple gift cards on his birthday, so this should not be difficult to pay for now that I realize it. Also, I have been thinking about getting him the G305 instead, which is basically a wireless G PRO. I wanted to see if there were any cheaper options.

Forum Topic "[Gaming Chair]"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

I do not know what to recommend since I’m not a “chair enthusiast” or anything even close lol. Basically, gaming chairs seem to be a marketing technique, but I bet there are still some really good ones. I do not know if the chairs have a good material or not, you would have to find that out from reviews on some gaming chairs.

Forum Topic "[Gaming Chair]"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

I am going to be honest, I don’t think gaming chairs are worth it. The shape may be nice but the material on some may be hard. I’d rather have a nice leather office chair.

Forum Topic "Any Changes before I Pull the Trigger?"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Looks great! You could get 1440p 60FPS High/Ultra settings in most games. The 1070 Ti overclocked is about a GTX 1080.

Forum Topic "What to upgrade first"

Is this your current PC right now? What is your budget to upgrade?

Forum Topic "Looking for people to play Fortnite with"

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

I make sure I'm not exposed from multiple angles when fighting from medium or long range by building on all sides. This doesn't seem to matter as much as when I'm in a shotgun battle.

Forum Topic "$450 Budget for Parent's PC"

The power supply in this is not professionally reviewed to my knowlegde, so I would stay away from it.

Forum Topic "Theoretically, how many frames could I get out of this build on minecraft with shaders?"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

It is not a laptop, I built it myself. I allocated 3GB to Minecraft. There can't be a bottleneck, considering people consider the configuration to be the perfect mid-range set up.

Forum Topic "Theoretically, how many frames could I get out of this build on minecraft with shaders?"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Probably like 30 frames lol, my pc is an i5-8400, 8gb RAM, and a GTX 1060 6GB and it barely gets 40FPS on SEUS Low... something is not right...

Forum Topic "First build (very inexperienced)"

hypergalaxy8 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

The graphics card is not meant for gaming. A Vega 56 or would be good for the monitor. However, the GTX 1080 performs around 20% better for less money but you do lose FreeSync so there is where you can choose. I put in cheaper but much better price to performance RAM, and it is basically the same thing for around $50 less. You also forgot a power supply. Lastly, you should upgrade to the S340 Elite, but you will lose the purple inside the case. Check your motherboard manual to see how you plug in the hard drive when a M.2 is in also.

It is over budget, but if you go with the GTX 1080 you would save money and get more performance but lose FreeSync.

You would plug the hard drive into SATA 2 I’m pretty sure. Check your motherboard manual for this.
