@realjjj: ...21 imch extra wide curved display and 2x GTX 1080...

OMG -- I think I just wet myself -- but this isn;t actually available today, is it? This article says that "Each Predator 21 X will be made to order, starting in January of next year..."

Yeah it was announced weeks ago at IFA and should arrive at some point for more than too much money.

BTW if you need a new mouse, this one was announced y-day http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice/razer-deathadder-elite

The DeathAdder series is very popular with FPS gamers. Unless you are lefthanded (no such version for this new model yet) or if you want wireless.

 

While at crazy things, check out this case http://www.overclock.net/t/1612393/techalook-lian-li-chassis-new-concept-is-an-x-men-blackbird

Or maybe Google image search for steampunk case mods. If still hungry after that, try acrylic case mods.

It seems merely practical. Where are the mentions of managing VM and display controllers with case controls? There needed to be air cooling space between the battery and other power-dense components instead of a 'firewall' of glass filled plastic. Clearly it's also a reusable takeaway container you can put over the order counter (or UberEATS driver) as well. Good design thinking. 

 Acer Predator 21 X... agh, http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/press/2016/202140 was the closest I could get of a mention. Oh wait, Nilay's thing: http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/8/31/12718840/acer-curved-gaming-laptop-predator-21x-price-release-date-ifa-2016 (Floral and Heathered finishes not shown.) Fine IFA 2016 (Messe Berlin holds 1600 exhibitors...eep,) what's IFA stand for? It's going to be explained in the APT update to the Jackson 5's ABC, right?

The 17s are $1700 which is on the practical side of a Toshiba laptop order, but the 21 or 34" accessory 'eye tracking' 4k or 5K monitors promise to move the price up a grand. (That feature sounds troublesome, but surely for those who were willing to do the work to program on a 12 pixel eye tracking display...I mean how many can you justify on the case forms from then...it'll sort out.)

@realjjj: ...if you need a new mouse...

I just bounced over to their website -- you have to admire the way they present this mouse -- it's like the Rolls Royce of mice -- I'd be happy to receive one as a Christmas present, but I'm not going to buy one -- this is for hardened gamers racing across battle terrains -- I'm more like a guy ambling around the countryside.

OK, this case is cool, but it would be a #$%^er to fit in a backpack LOL

Unless it has it's own propulsion!


As for the mouse, it doesn't hurt to have a nice mouse and it's not that costly. You could also look at previous editions and maybe find a deal at 40-50$.

If you are starting to be interested in PC, check out these review sites

Best PSU reviews http://www.jonnyguru.com/

Best review site for monitors http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/

The monitor market is pretty exciting nowadays and doesn't hurt to understand what's out there and what to aim for. I do remember that you have a new monitor so just check out that site for fun.

Ofc it is rather late for the PC, the DIY scene was at its peak 8-10 years ago but now the interest in PCs is fading fast https://www.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=intel,amd,nvidia
