#16 2016 black friday/cyber monday deals in Off Topic

Any good deals on 750w PSUs? Mine stopped working a few days ago. Preferably on amazon.

Let's just figure out the monitor, then I'll make a rough partlist and in the week before you buy I'll adjust it for current prices/deals.

So IPS is a no, 120/144Hz is a yes and 1920x1080 and 24" are fine? Then it really just comes down to Adaptive Sync vs Strobing.

The G2460PF is temptingly cheaper, but based on everything you've said and I've read it seems like the BenQ XL2411Z is a better fit for me and worth the extra $. So let's go with that.

One other thing, if I want to be able to use both internet and wifi, I probably have to buy some sort of wireless adapter, right? How much would that run me if I want acceptable gaming speeds on wifi?

Thanks a ton for your help and offering to throw together a parts list. I'll probably be looking to buy first week of October.

Some "easy" stuff regarding the monitor:
If already know what IPS, Lightboost/Strobing, G-Sync/FreeSync decide which of these (or a combination of them, in that case rank them) you want. If not read up on them and then decide. Also figure out the minimum resolution you want.

I read up on each of these. Looks like IPS is one of four panel types, but the monitors I'm looking at linked in the first post of the 120Hz monitor thread are all TN. Furthermore, based on newegg's description of each type, twisted nematic seems like the best option for me - shortest response times, less power use, and I don't particularly care about viewing angles. Lightboost/strobing is about reducing motion blur, no? That's definitely a high priority for me. Lastly, G-Sync seems to be a proprietary NVidia method to prevent tearing, whereas Freesync works with other cards, albeit not as well (according to some articles). I'll admit I'm a bit lost here - especially since the monitor I found that satisfies TN and Lightboost, the ASUS VG248QE, supports neither G-Sync nor Freesync, according to reviews. Other ASUS models have something called "adaptive sync", but I honestly can't find the term sync anywhere in the description or reviews for this monitor. Is this a big problem? If this monitor is my top choice right now due to TN/Lightboost, how (if at all) should its sync method dictate my choice in a GPU?

The first half is ok, there's some things I'd change, the 380 is cheaper and faster than the 960, you should get 2x4GB, not 1x8GB RAM for dual channel and then there's the question regarding Lightboost and so on.

Got it, only thing is the 380 is out of stock on newegg ATM, and I can't seem to find it on amazon. I won't be making this purchase until the end of the month, so should I just keep checking back every day? Do these things usually restock quickly?
When you say 2x4GB, does that literally mean buying two 4GB RAMs? A lot of the 4GBs on logicalincrements are DDR3, but it looks like DDR4 is superior. Assuming I get the right mobo this time, would this be a decent choice? And yea, it makes perfect sense that an Intel cpu won't pair with an AMD mobo. If I switch to the i3 6100, how's this as a mobo? It's Intel and DDR4 compatible. But perhaps I'm missing something obvious again. I'll hold off picking PSU/SSD/case for now until I'm sure I understand the monitor stuff (and because I'm on mobile).

Thanks for all the help (:

#1648 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Hello, I've never built a PC or even owned a computer that wasn't a shitty laptop. Looking to move on from 30fps gaming, hopefully you kind folks can help. I used, the 120Hz monitor thread, and some links in this thread to throw this list together.

My only requirement is running tf2 (matchmaking specifically, so w/o a config) at 150+ fps, so I get the most out of the 144hz monitor I'm planning on getting.

CPU: i5 6500
GPU: GTX 960
Monitor: BenQ XL2411Z
CPU/GPU/RAM/Monitor, I have some vague understanding of what they do and why they matter. From here on out I chose essentially randomly from the Fair to Very Good range on logicalincrements.
Mobo: MSI 970 Gaming
HDD: 250 GB
SSD: 120 GB
Case: Corsair 200R

This put my total at $940. I don't have a set budget, but ideally I'd like to get it below $800 if possible. Is this build overkill for my requirements? My intuition says I could probably cut the SSD, since it doesn't matter for gaming, correct?

Also, this might be a retarded question, but I have a Lenovo U410 Ultrabook that I won't be using much once I've got this built. It has an i7, 8GB DDR3 RAM, and an NVIDIA 610M. Could I gut any parts from it, or are laptop parts completely different? Or are they simply too old and worn out after 3 years of use?

Thanks in advance for any input. Feel free to PM me instead of cluttering the thread.

#120 Introducing... The Mannterface! in Customization

Amazing hud, just a few things

-like riot said, my health colors turn red/orange indicating low health when I'm hardly hurt at all. like starting at 130-140 health on demo. is there somewhere I can change the ranges for white vs red health?
-anyway to make the scoreboard 12v12, and move it to the top of the screen rather than the bottom? I still mostly pub.
-at the round end when it shows the three topscores for the round, it doesn't show the classes they were on. any way to add that?
-rayshud had a thing where you could press "e" as a shortcut for "continue" when you joined a server, and to edit loadout when you opened the class switch menu. any chance of adding that?

again great job on the hud, i love the tf2 style

#2037 HUD editing: short questions, quick answers in Customization

switched to flamehud

how do I increase the font size of the weapon name/description (both for inspect and killcam), target playername/uber, killfeed, and scoreboard? I'm playing on a tiny laptop and these things aren't easy to see. I'm willing to just use a different font if changing its size is too difficult

Magnifique has leaked. Possibly their best album yet, though I think Classics still has it beat.
