...And I would very much like your advices :smile:

First of all, I have no idea where this topic belong, so moderators, please move this to an appropiate section of the forums. And feel free to correct my poor english, everybody.


So, I am maybe going to build myself a gaming PC from scratch, and I wondered if you guys had some advices to share? Like, how powerful graphic card should I get, how much RAM do I need, and such.

But it is more.

I also need a new headset, and you know how it is guys, it is so much to chose between... It is only one thing which is a absolutely must-have for me, and that is that the headset is comfortable for longer session. I would very much like one who surroundes the ears completely, not those "on-ear" things.

Money is not important at this stage, I only want to know the spesifications I would need to get a decent gaming PC.

So, what would you've chosed?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT:added more poll options.

If you don't know what's good, ask what's expensive :trollface:

I agree with the post above me, the X12s are the most comfortable headset I have ever used and are just good all rounders for everything.

Well, there is one thread consisting mainly of 3 posts, which has always up to date configurations for different price levels. 2nd post is the configs, 3rd post are special alternatives and advice.
It is in german, but there is not that much text anyway, google translator is enough:

The 500€ i3 version gives about 60fps on high settings and 1.3Megapixel resolution in wot.

Sennheiser headsets rock the socks off other headsets.
I've never liked on-ear headphones/headsets, but Sennheiser makes theirs so they never put any pressure on the ear.
They are also open so you don't get that enclosed sound some headphones have.

I go through a lot of headsets since I have a cat who loves to eat cables and I've re-bought Sennheiser headsets 3 times in a row because I'm so pleased with them.

Steel Series have awesome headsets really great quality of music and bass, best mouse for me is R.A.T., i had few gaming Logitechs but all were damaged quickly so i dk what was wrong with them. keyboards i guess logitech they have special extra keys for extra binds, steering wheel is Logitech tho i had already 2 repairs of my G25 and i have logitech joy but it's not best one.

If you're looking for a good quality headset, choose Sennheiser. I myself am thinking about a new gaming PC, and for sound I will definitely choose Sennheiser, probably http://en-de.sennhei...-gaming-headset

I'd choose Razer DA or Mamba, maybe Ouroboros if it's price won't be too high, and BlackWIdow or DeathSalker for keyboard. Too bad they're expensive >.<"

Logitech for Mice but i wouldn't pick any in the poll for headsets. Seinnheiser are good but i'd found investing in proper headphones that would usually be used for movies or music and just using a clip on mic gives much better sound. Currently have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro's atm and they're fantastic. AKG are making some very good affordable headsets of late too.

As a musician, I prefer real headphones over gaming gear. So I'd say invest in AKG, Beyerdynamics, Sennheiser, Shure or such and you will get much more value for your money since simple directional mics are cheap and more than enough for communicating. Also I'd suggest to stay away from anything with usb, wireless and "surround" because to get such good setup will cost hundreds. If headset is a must then there are also mics that can be attached to headphones.

Overall I for one like to invest in quality rather than led lights, looks that are made for kids of other bells and whistles.

For gaming I have Shure SRH840 and a directional mic on my monitor and quite satisfied with those. Gave all my gaming headsets away since the sound quality was so horrible (at least for my ears).

if you want to build a system from scratch and at the same time you're looking for advices, you're probably down the wrong road.

Building a system yourself without wasting money and/or screwing it up (hardware incompatibility, bottlenecking, etc) is definetly not easy.

When building systems, one shoukd most definetly choose hardware that takes advantage of the maximum performance of the other hardware which is part of the system, and this is the most difficult part.

Don't buy a headset, they have subpar audio and they are way overpriced, especially the 'Gaming' ones. Buying those is a waste of money.
Go for a proper pair of headphones like AKG, Sennheiser and buy a clip-on mic for essentially free.

As for other gear I only know the mouse for sure, the Logitech G400 is a god-tier mouse and it's very cheap, definitely go for them.

I might have agreed with you a couple of months ago but I've just built my first ever PC and I'm astonished how easy it was, even for a non-techie like me.  There's a wealth of information on the web, including helpful videos on YouTube.  Regarding compatibility I agree this is a major issue.  Fortunately there's a great website called pcpartpicker.com that I used, which will ensure all the parts you select go together.

My whole build came in at around £450 and I've gone from average 12 fps with graphic settings on Low on my old PC to average 60 fps with settings on Medium on my new build

I probably explained it bad, my fault. I dont want advices with how I am going to build it and such, but for the components. Like, when playing todays games, how much RAM do I need, for example. It is not the building I want advices on.

Sorry if I wasn't clear:)
