#98 TF2 Blog: "Balance Changes" in TF2 General Discussion

RNG amby is dumb.
I can't believe the dead ringer still hasn't had its fire immunity removed.
Razorback change is sick.
Mantreads look interesting.

#10 movement keys in TF2 General Discussion
lootesdf is only better than wasd if you are playing quake and have 9 weapons to bind keys for

It's objectively more comfortable unless you're a handlet.

What additional USB ports? 2x USB 3.0 + 2x USB 2.0 on the front panel is about as standard as it gets

The cheaper version of the case (nzxt s340) only has two usb ports on the front.

#2058 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Actually I'll stick with the case I linked before because I need the additional usb ports.
Reading the reddit thread and a few benchmarks it doesn't sound like AMD is too far behind and the driver being open source is nice so I'll go with the rx480.
That means it's identical to what you listed before. Shall I pull the trigger and buy the parts?

SetsulWell get on that.

I'd get a BenQ Zowie XL2411 instead. It's identical to the BenQ XL2411Z but not listed in pcpartpicker. That is, if you want Lightboost. If you want FreeSync there's the AOC G2460PF.
The 1070 is indeed excessive and with the mobo, cooler and PSU you'd be over budget. The 7700K is overkill too though. The 7350K is an option, but not that much cheaper. You also don't have to overclock if you don't really need that much performance.

You won't need either. If you have good headphones you might want to get a soundcard, if they are very hard to drive or just very good maybe an external DAC/amp, but that's a whole new can of worms. Unless you want wifi (mobos with wifi are rare) a network adapter is a waste of money.

MicroATX cases are smaller and therefore cheaper. They are also smaller. Unless you want more than 2 GPUs or other things there is no need for full ATX.

Rough idea for now, until you're decided on overclocking, the case and the monitor.
...

I'll get the BenQ and the cheaper version of the case I linked before.
I'm happy to overclock.
A lot of people online say that nvidia is better than amd for linux. Although I couldn't find any super recent sources, I'm leaning towards getting nvidia. Is there an equivalent nvidia gpu (in terms of performance and price) to the amd one you suggested?

I have no idea how to choose a motherboard, CPU cooler or power supply.
I'm not really sure about the monitor or GPU either. I don't know if the 1070 is excessive.
Will I need a sound card or network adapter?
Is there a reason you like microATX cases setsul?

#449 The 120Hz Monitor Thread in Hardware

I'm looking for a 1080p 144hz monitor with minimal input lag.
What's good now? Are the recomended monitors still the ones Comanglia listed?
Where do people buy from in Australia? I couldn't find any Australian retailers for the BenQs in his list.

February is good, Kaby Lake should be out by then.

Overclocking would be linear performance gains with clockrate increase. We'll see how well Kaby Lake overclocks and how it's priced. Not really worth it if it costs 100$ more than the 4.1 GHz i3 and only gets up to 4.5. If it ends up being <200$ and getting closer to 5 GHz then yes please.
There's two ways to kill a CPU: heat and voltage. It'll just throttle or even shut off if it overheats so you'd have to disable the safe voltage limits in BIOS and then mess up and put in something too high. So I'd say it's fairly difficult to mess up.

With closed source drivers both AMD and nVidia should work fine.

Should I start working out a list of components or wait until Kaby Lake? It probably makes sense to buy most of the stuff in the post Christmas sales right?
Is Falcon's guide (logicalincrements.com) still a good way to do that?

SetsulDolphin and TF2 love single threaded performance. So the question is overclocking yes or no?
When do you want to build it? There's supposedly an overclockable i3 coming with Kaby Lake which would be perfect for this.

Linux driver support is complicated. I mean apart from some weird custom fan control chips *cough* ASUS *cough* I'm not too concerned about the mobo so this is just about the GPU. Then it depends on which driver you use. Not sure how keen you are on open source. You know most games won't work on Linux (WINE can work but it's dodgy and I wouldn't count on it for anything but the most popular games) so dualbooting anyway might be a good idea.

I'm open to overclocking but I don't really know much about it. How big is the increase in performance and what are the chances of it breaking stuff? Ideally I'd build it by February at the latest.
I don't mind running closed source drivers. I know I can't run much on Linux but I'm fine with that because pretty much all I play is TF2 and Melee. There's nothing that really interests me at the moment that is only on Windows.

#1936 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Looking to build a computer to play TF2 and Melee (using Dolphin emulator).
I want a low latency 144hz monitor and to be able to run TF2 constantly above 289 fps (if the old adage of 2 times your refresh rate plus one is true).
Ideally I'd be able to do this on Linux, so I would prioritise brands which have better linux driver support. If that's not really possible or will cost a lot more I am willing to dualboot to play games.
I'm aiming for below 2000 AUD but my budget is semi-flexible so I'd be willing to hear options a bit over (and obviously below too).
