  1. Thinking of purchasing a USB 3.0 Hub for my new rig (which has 1 USB 3.0 & 1 USB 2.0 input). Can't imagine I'd need more than 5 total.   I'd like something with a decent size cable, so I'm not restricted where I can put it: https://www.amazon.com/Ugreen-MacBook-Microsoft-Surface-Ultrabooks/dp/B00OQ0CYFE/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1469019494&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=usb+3.0+hub&psc=1   Trying to stay on amazon, as I have a nice promo coupon to use.
  2. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

      No, but I have a dongle to use from my previous PC.   I'll still probably grab an Xbox One controller when the new version comes out.
  3. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

    SOLD. Just bought the Steam controller and a refurbished K400, so I should be covered.   Also - I'm planning on repurposing my PS4 controller for the PC as well. I just realized the 360 / Xbox One controllers require an adapter to connect, and the PS4 does not. That seems a little backwards, doesn't it? Oh well. Works for me.
  4. Radeon RX series [Polaris] reviews and discussion

    @NextGen   Will this be available for preorder or have to wait until the 22nd? Any suggestions on where to purchase from?   I assume this is the Sapphire non reference I'd be looking for?   Sapphire's RX 480 Nitro+ OC pictured in details

    Nice, @AndrewDean84 ! How much did that laptop run you? Looks beautiful. I'm totally with you on the new console model plan. Glad I'm not alone.   I think I'm going to go with the Steam Controller - I'm a little intimidated by the learning curve, but it sounds like once you 'get it' - it's well worth it.   ....Now I'm still contemplating buying the K400, jut incase.
  6. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

    Wow - that K830 looks NIIICE. Tempting, but a little pricey - will keep that in mind for future upgrading!   Steam Controller vs K400... I do have a wired keyboard for emergencies.... decision, decisions...
  7. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

    I've got a PS4 controller leftover from my stolen PS4 that I'm going to repurpose for my main controller, along with an Xbox One controller I'll probably purchase as a second controller & to use for local multiplayer.   But I'll definitely need something to navigate the desktop / web (from the couch).   I am very intrigued by the Steam Controller... but also looking at kb/trackpad combo like this: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-Keyboard-Multi-Touch-Touchpad/dp/B005DKZTMG   Anybody have one of these for HTPC?   The Steam controller is more appealing, but not sure how much it will work as a complete replacement for kb/mouse (or trackpad in this case).   Also - do any HTPC people use a remote? A coworker recommended I get one - seems pointless to me when you can just use a controller, unless I'm overlooking something.
  8. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

    OK - everything is purchased, except for processor & fans (picking them up tonight) and Radeon RX 480 non-reference.   FINALLY!   Now if I can just make it another 2 weeks!
  9. Amazon Prime Day - Any Notable PC Gaming Deals?

    That's a good deal!   Still find it amusing that the only way you can take advantage of the 20% off deal today required you to sign up several days earlier (for non-card holders).    ... not to mention the discount for signing up for a card alone (year round) is nearly double this deal.   (yes, I'm saving more than 20% and still complaining!)  
  10. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

    Awesome - thank you so much for the detailed response! That makes a lot of sense and is a immensely helpful! 
  11. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

    Thanks so much! @cusideabelincoln   My bad for snoozing on that cooler! I did find one on eBay last night for $20, but of course it was gone from my cart when I logged in to order this morning.   Will definitely grab some case fans. I assume they're all pretty comparable? Just get the cheapest ones?
  12. Thinking of converting from Console to PC Gaming - Some initial questions!

      OK - FINALLY PULLING THE TRIGGER ON THIS BUILD. Going with the recommended tower - sounds like anything smaller / horizontal comes with too much risk & compromise. Buying some of the parts today, while I wait for the non-reference Radeon X 480.   @cusideabelincoln Any recommendations for an alternate CPU cooler? Can't seem to find this one in stock anywhere at the moment: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/sGZQzy/xigmatek-cpu-cooler-primesd1484   (thank you in advance - and thanks for all of your help thus far)  
  13. Amazon Prime Day - Any Notable PC Gaming Deals?

    OK - so this $30 off $150 promo code doesn't work unless you were approved for the card last week, which is... brilliant.   Wonder how many signed up for the card, only to get 'discount cannot be applied' at checkout.   WELL PLAYED AMAZON.
  14. Amazon Prime Day - Any Notable PC Gaming Deals?

      YES! My thoughts exactly.
  15. Amazon Prime Day - Any Notable PC Gaming Deals?

    Yep - one item only.
