    The New Fight Night Thread

    That's how it goes. It is much more different in squads when you feel you can actually take people on rather than hiding away until the end. Makes it feel like a different game.

    Got my Switch. Only got Zelda and a Pro Controller at the moment, so let me know your recommendations for other games and things. I'm thinking of getting the Gioteck Premium case for it on the go. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gioteck-Premium-Storage-Nintendo-Switch/dp/B01MYCRSG3 Already on my games list; Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 of course. Looking for anything that is going to be good handheld as well as on the TV.

    Just how old are the kids? Hmm. I probably can't write that on forums. Sorry if it ends up on a watch list.. I'm very interested in local multiplayer and co-op with one or two consoles. Other than Mario Kart the only one I've played is Snipper Clippers.

    How do we not have a Nintendo Switch thread??!? Nintendo Switch Thread! Who's got one, what games do you recommend (other than the obvious Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart)? What accessories do you have, colours, options. Do you use it mostly docked or the convenient portable/handheld option? I'll be honest, I don't own one myself yet but have been keeping my eye out on second hand ones and hoping to get one soon. Hopefully it will see more action than my long neglected list of consoles, I'm expecting the portable aspect to help with that and means I can have my first Nintendo system since my reliable DS Lite.

    yes I had the same thought. although I can't remember if mine ended up coming with them or not. In reality they probably won't make much difference as a lot of PSUs come with them now. Something that I found useful to answer asthetic question was use an awesome feature that pcpartpicker has. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/builds/by_part/WrNypg You can find a part and then find people's submitted builds that use that part, the link above are all builds that use the 650W SeaSonic Focus Plus. It also allows for other modifiers such as picking your case/mobo so you can narrow down the spec.

    JonnyGuru do PSU reviews, both the 550W and 750W Seasonic Focus have been reviewed and get decent ratings: 750W - http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=524 550W- http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=529 EVGA PSUs get decent ratings at the moment, specially their G2 and G3 series. When I researched my build in Autumn last year I got an EVGA. I've heard Superflower are good at the moment too.

    Your monitor will only be displaying 60 FPS as it is 60hz that's very true. I was under the impression that no other changes would make a difference to the visuals/game performance hence why I had VSync enabled and fixed the output to 60FPS of my monitor. However the examples that SuPerNoVi links to explains that although you monitor is 60hz, by allowing the computer to generate images faster (not locked to 60fps) it will mean you have the possibility for a more recent image to load every time the screen refreshes. I found this the best explanation: I have now disabled VSync in games as there is no disadvantage unless you notice any visual problems.

    Mouse; Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye Mousepad: Steelseries QCK+ I got the QCK+ to try and I may get a QCK XL as a huge mouse for the desk when I finalise my setup. Also might get a few others second hand to try out. For the keyboard, I do like the idea of customisable RGB key configurations and the options to modify keycaps on other keyboards too. I've never had a mechanical keyboard before so I'm stepping into the world of that first of all. I've found a second hand Ducky Shine 3 TKL with MX Red switches which I'm going to get hopefully. Not as game orientated as the Razer or a Corsair but should set me up nicely to start with.

    Sweet tech and nice writeup, yay for the shiny. When I built my PC I thought why not get RGB things if it is an option.. not that I have activated it much. I've just bought a new mouse + mouse pad myself and I'm looking at a keyboard too. Got to overhaul my whole setup and environment to enjoy game more. Ultra Widescreen/21:9 is something I've considered too. Interesting you say that PUBG is OK as I'd been reading that it isn't natively supported and cuts off some of the top and bottom to give the width. And congrats on the nice profit from the figures. Sometimes these kind of things are a good investment.
