Let me know. I'm leaning towards that one. Seems like the extra money is worth it if it lasts longer
Hey, so I've had the Uke for 3 days now. Shipping takes a little while since it's made to order. To give a little background, I'm very much a novice player, but I've been practicing on and off for about 9 years. This is my third uke. I own a cheap soprano (my first uke) and a still fairly cheap Oscar Schmid concert. The sound you get out of the Outdoor Ukulele isn't bad. It's better than my cheap soprano, but obviously much more muted than my concert. It's fairly quite, but has a very clean sound without a lot of extra going on. The build quality is exceptional. It's even more sturdy than I expected. If I had to reach for an item to bludgeon someone with in self defense, this item would do nicely (not that I would want to hurt someone, and especially not with my new uke!). What I'm trying to say is that it's solid. So if you have dreams of playing "somewhere over the rainbow" while camping in the rain as I do, I definitely recommend this product. Small side note, I got the soprano with the precision tuning upgrade, as well as some strap pegs because I like those.
Vive here. Altered my height. Power armor HUD jumps around in smooth locomotion, or more annoyingly, room scale movement. Just learning to live with it, along is all the other bug and quirks of FO4VR. Hope there is a fix one day, because this game is awesome. Just in desperate need of some polish.
Available at all quebec retailers by the way eb games announced it as well
Do you have a source for the EB games announcement?
I was on the hunt for a budget 144hz monitor recently. Best price I could find on a good product was this:
Alternatively, this one is very similar:
Intel - Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
The 8XXX series is launching in 3.5 weeks, wait a bit before dropping >$400 on this. You'll not only see sales, but on newer and better parts.
Corsair - H60 54.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Good series, but get something beefier like the Corsair H100i v2.
MSI - B250 PC MATE ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Get a motherboard that supports multiplier overclocking. Right now your best bet would be a Z270 board, but I would wait the 3.5 weeks.
Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
No issue there but will this be your only drive?
MSI - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Video Card
As mentioned by others, this is overkill for 1080p gaming. I would honestly recommend a GTX 1070 or an RX580 8GB for most gamers with your budget right now, unless they were actively planning on gaming at 1440p144 or higher.
NZXT - S340 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case
Case is fine. I've been building in a lot of Fractal Design, Phanteks and a bit of Inwin lately but that's a personal preference. There's so much choice out there.
Corsair - CSM 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
If you're staying with the GTX 1080 I'd go a bit beefier.
ViewSonic - XG2401 23.6" 1920x1080 144Hz Monitor
I don't know a whole lot about monitors so I can't help you there, but consider if you want to game a higher res or not, as others have also mentioned. You probably have the budget though it's tight.
Awesome break down. I wasn't aware that the 8xxx series was on it's way. Good to know.
I was thinking with the 6700K overclocking wouldn't really be necessary. At stock clock speeds do you think that the H60 cooler would suffice? Or does it still merit the H100i?
Thanks for the help.
First off, if you're not going to overclock, then don't with go with either a -K variant and go for an H-series motherboard (H270, for example, non-overclocking). This also means no overclocked RAM, by the way. If you're not OC'ing the cpu then by all means, you can stick with the small (read: 120mm radiator) version(s) of the Corsair all-in-one liquid coolers, sure. I mean the water-cooling's a luxury here either way, air would do just fine too.
After accepting that some of my choices were overkill for a 1080p 144hz monitor, I made some adjustments.
Any feedback for the update?
Trying to keep everything coming from Newegg to cut down on shipping costs. That, and I just learned that shipping electronics from Amazon to Quebec gives you a bad case of extra taxes.

Don't need the 1600X and cooler. Stock is fine.
Get a cheaper motherboard that has what features you want. A B350 should be fine.
Don't need a 750W. A 550-650W is more than enough. Also, the CXM is more of a budget PSU.
Could use the money saved for a GTX1080 or a better monitor.
Good advise. I'm going to take another look at this.

Overall, this build is actually several hundred cheaper than what you've selected, with the only sacrifice coming from your CPU (and a small sacrifice at that). The savings allowed you to move up to a faster graphics card, and gives you some room to potentially spend more on a monitor if you'd like.
This gives me a bunch to consider. Really like your suggestions. Thanks a bunch.
Intel i5 for $10 more.
Unless you're unzipping files all day or doing video renders, intel architecture wins out. Everything that doesn't take advantage of multi-threading (read: large percentage of games) will get outperformed by the equal priced intel models. Note the differences on these benchmarks. Slight gain on multi-thread games and a loss on open-world / console cross-platform titles
I'd also recommend this ASUS monitor for nearly $100 less. I purchased one two years ago and now I have three. Also - you are paying extra for a freesync monitor with an Nvidia GPU
Finally, your motherboard supports DDR4-2133 / 2400 / 2666 memory clocks. You can save some money by buying some slower RAM otherwise your motherboard is going to slow those down. In some cases your motherboard cannot use the RAM at all if it doesn't match a supported speed.
Thanks a bunch. You're totally right. Going to look this over some more.
You can't complete the game solely unarmed though :( there is one person who takes no damage from unarmed... or maybe I just couldn't hurt him. This was 15 years ago I may have missed something
I have definitely complete the game using nothing but unarmed. Naturally this includes the powers fist, but still. It's actually amazing because with perks you can punch many many times in a single turn once your action points are max, plus a few action boy perks. To be honest I think unarmed is a very strong build with the right combinations.
31/m/Canada already in Tokyo and will be here until Oct 05. Really enjoying my time here so far, but flying solo and would love to meet up! Food, drink or exchanging travel stories would be a blast. I would like to take in some culture, and go to an event like sumo, baseball or theatre if anyone is interested. Staying in Asakusa but happy to take the train anywhere. Let me know people!
I'm in tokyo today and tomorrow. I'm flying at 5pm at narita. Pm if you are interested. I'm going to ghibli museum at 2pm then I don't have anything else planned.
Thanks for the invite! I am think about checking out the Ghibli museum myself. Sounds like I missed your invite since you are leaving, but thanks again .
Is it crazy that I just want the piece that is connected to the bottom of the grip? I always felt that the sling-point ring there was super pointy in my hand. I am surprised that no one has made a little cap to cover that up yet.
Hmm, im thinking a white and orange raider stock will look pretty good on the upcoming XD Alpha Trooper... better than the spectre stock.
Woah woah woah, wait a minute, WTF is this!?
that wouldd look pretty sweet on this blaster
