At 33yrs old I have joined the PC master race.

That's unusual. You could use a DVI to HDMI adaptor for the third display.

 

It's an EVGA version of the card if that has an effect. 

Will do DVI to HDMI when the time comes. I need the monitor first and that'll take a while anyway.

Even more so, as EVGA are the premium brand for Nvidia cards.

 

Oh ok. I'll take a closer look at some point, maybe the case it hiding part of it? Let me get a photo

FYI, it might be the KO Variant of the 2060.
 

Spoiler



 


EDIT: Yep. Probably the best thing to do is check if any of those monitors you have support Displayport Multi-Stream. That'll let you daisychain cables from one monitor to the other.

Otherwise, DVI/HDMI/DP are all digital signals, you'll just need different cables or adapters.

Woo. Cut my cable ties, now have my 1TB HDD mounted to the case rather than just laying in there. Found a bunch of other power cables. Plenty for another HDD and fans. 

 

One thing you'll always be short of is storage space.

Yeah, I guessed. 

Also my cable management is currently a mess since I cut the cable ties. Might grab some velcro ones at some point.

We're just about to move house as the missus has finished her vet degree and got her first job as a vet. In the car yesterday, she ordered me to actually get myself a decent PC for once. So, I've got a budget of £2k (No monitor needed) with the following two caveats:

It has to be "funky/pretty"

It has to be orange (or has LEDs that can be switched to orange). This is vitally important, I'm sure you'll all understand.

 

As I've never dealt with LED wizardry before, I'm just going to go for a pre-build. So finally I get to the point of this post. What's the best UK site for this?

ive had a couple of systems from pc specialist https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/ custom built for you! i think they have a range of sort of ready to go systems as well. OH, and REMOVE the windows selection if you go with them, as its £100 which you can use for summit else, and you can get a key from ebay!

 

AND, it may be worth waiting a couple months, as new graphics cards should be out by then, so either more for the money, or the older card for less!

 

Mt first is still going from 4/5 years ago, well, it hada gfx card upgrade.

 

And my new one from sept last year is noice! (these lights are normally off!)

Well, I used my house move as a frankly awkward excuse to prepare for the new nVidia cards.

 

I waved goodbye to my 2080ti, and in its place as a temporary fix is the 2060 that I swapped with the aforementioned 2080ti's new owner.

 

The performance of the 2060 does lead me to question the wisdom of spending huge amounts of money on the latest things, but as I am hopelessly addicted to spending money on stuff that I probably don't really need in my life I have no choice in the matter.

 

No choice at all.

I've just started playing Yakuza 0. Holy shit it's crazy good fun :lol: I was laughing my ass off when you have your first big brawl and that Yakuza keeps coming at you in QTEs. I've also found an arcade so I'm wasted the rest of my evening playing Out Run.

Speaking of PC Specialists, I've got one too. But (and don't judge me) I got it from Curries.

 

Don't laugh - they had the same model as PCS but cheaper, and could deliver straightaway whereas PCS themselves had long delays.

 

Something to bear in mind. And to join the gang, I'm really happy with it.

Imagine thinking you're having fun in Yakuza 0 before the hostess club minigame absorbs 20 hours of game time, fellas. Pretty absurd, if you ask me.

Don't forget to play Frog Fractions at some point to really harness those RTX Tensor cores, new PC friends!

Thanks a lot, @Pungee, you've cost me a lot of money! And I love it!

 

I went for an i7-10700k and my first ever NVMe installation (two of them!)

 

I'm still using my old 1070 but I'll be upgrading that when the new cards come out later this year!

My current PC is a Scan 3xs which come in endless configurations. My RGB is off but I could certainly make it orange. The scan build was lovely. Perfectly tidy and all options for safe overclocking had already been set in the bios.
