      VG Server Standard Maintenance & Updates - Monday, November 2nd 2020   10/23/2020

      All VG Game Servers including TS3 will be going down for standard maintenance and updates on Monday November 2nd, 2020.  The Falcon BMS Server will go down as well, but for a shorter period (less work there) - any pilots flying at the time will be asked for ETA of RTB, and server will be saved after they land and before shutdown.   Downtime is estimated to be less than 4 hours, but could be shorter (or as long as 8 hours) depending on a number of factors.  TS3 may come back online, only to go back offline shortly after, so expect this until it is announced to be completed.  Please consider the VG Discord Server's Voice Channels as an alternative to TeamSpeak 3 if it goes down on you and your friends.
      Request any technical help in the VG Discord from Nyther (aka 8-bit).  Cheers!

  1. A little advice for my new PC!

    Since his under tight budget, so no choice unless pump in more cash to get a better monitor with G-Sync Only or Adaptive Sync OR drop/downgrade something else from the current list & re-route the amount towards the monitor cost. There's pros & cons of having a tight budget since computer parts are not that cheap in certain countries thanks to VAT & etc that has been imposed.
  2. A little advice for my new PC!

    Never buy G-Sync ONLY Monitor if ur on budget as the Monitor company has to pay premium to Nvidia for the G-Sync Badge which hike the cost of the monitors. Including the SLI Badge on motherboard Nvidia being their usual Nvidia. Sucking money from royalties of having their badge being plastered anywhere that can be placed at.
  3. A little advice for my new PC!

    Alternative, u can find monitors with the word, 'Adaptive Sync' on it which means it do accept both Nvidia & Radeon GPUs OR do this ---> Enable G-Sync on FreeSync Monitor
  4. What gear do you got?

    Need Moore options... Need include Potato System, 'Pfft Desktop, i'm using laptop' as well as able to select multiple options (for those whom have multiple system including myself).
  5. Game Start

    Those whom have slow loading system for PR can join the TeamSpeak & ask others to help reserve the slot for u if u really want to use that certain asset in the next round. We actually don't mind reserving the slot for a few minutes just to wait for that certain some1 to finish loading. -This is a cheaper option rather than buying new storage as some people are playing tru laptops which don't really have much upgrade options internally.
  6. A little advice for my new PC!

    Hmm.... Never heard of this brand. Anyways, not available in my country so... IDK. OLOy WarHawk RGB 16GB (2x8GB) 3600MHz
  7. A little advice for my new PC!

    So far for the Ripjaws V model/SKU(maybe not all of them), i have no issue using it for some of my customer AMD system & able to make it work at the stated manufacturer frequency. But G.Skill Rams are slightly more pricier in the market. But if u want to be save, follow the QVL as some rams might not have been tested yet or already did but have not been updated in the QVL list yet. For PSU, I will always recommend to get at least an 80+ Bronze due to the efficiency of the PSU. But if ur able to squeeze more & get an 80+ Silver or Gold rating, it is a nice addition. Don't really recommend 80+ only certified (this is mostly for super budget build or people that don't care bout psu & they just want cheap parts)
  8. A little advice for my new PC!

    Ripjaws V model is compatible for Ryzen. Forget to add that as too many Brands & models for me to remember. But CL18. Hmm.... It's still doable Just don't forget to X.M.P (it can be D.O.C.P, A.M.P or whatever the crap mb vendor named it) in the mb Bios for those ram if ur a beginner. Don't touch the Vcore (is it still Vcore for ram as well? Been awhile I manually OC new system). Let it be in 'AUTO' unless u know what ur doing.
  9. A little advice for my new PC!

    Ram: G.Skill - Trident Z Line-Up, Flare X, Sniper X, Performance(Budget Ram) Klevv - ALL (Korean Brand) TeamGroup - Delta RGB, Nighthawk RGB (not sure bout other models) Corsair - Dominator (For standard Vengeance, do ensure that it is AMD compatible, NOT Intel compatible as they have 2 different set. If u purchase an Intel compatible, 40% chance for AMD system to work at stated speed); however for Vengeance RGB, may work on AMD as they don't have different set like their non rgb sibling Adata - maybe all Gigabyte - Majority of their SKUs uses Samsung B-Die (super expensive) Patriot - not sure as not widely available in my country as there's no local distributor/supplier carry it Kingston - maybe all (not 100% sure if the standard HyperX & Savage work for AMD or not. Their RGB line up do work) Crucial - Never bother research as stocks not much readily available in my country Geil - IDK (All I know their rams are kind of ugly for my own preference) Might missed out some of the Brands as can't remember all of them.
  10. New update

    Go to work Ranger. Later can play PR
  11. A little advice for my new PC!

    It's ur choice if u wish to so called downsize a bit, M-ATX casing will be it but need to use M-ATX or smaller mb. ATX mb won't be able to fit (y i said this cuz i still have customers asking me on ATX mb 'Can fit?' which i ask them what casing it is & end up it is a bloody M-ATX Casing. *Face Palm*). Don't recommend downsizing to ITX mb YET for the so called beginners/non tech savvy.
  12. A little advice for my new PC!

    If ur opting for an ATX casing, u might want to opt for an ATX mb. Example: Mb: Asrock B550 Pro4 or MSI B550-A Pro or Gigabyte B550 Gaming X U still can use the current B550m on the ATX casing. But for me, I will take the ATX mb due to the gap at the bottom of the casing after u have install it in the casing (Pretty empty gap which is kind of awkward). Y those mb, as ur just using a Ryzen 5 which those mb still can handle them (all I know the above mentioned MSI mb can handle an Ryzen 9 3000 Series on the VRms/Mosfet, not sure bout other brands as I have not search it up yet. More like too lazy to research it).
  13. A little advice for my new PC!

    Not much case that can be recommended for M-ATX Size as most case manufacturers prioritize more on the ATX Size. So pretty hard too narrow down unless you do live in Asia which have other so called cheaper brands like Tecware (they love to rip off design from other bigger brands while using flimsy metal), Aigo (but they called it DarkFlash), Gamemax & more. These companies do make more rip off & downsize them to M-ATX size. Not sure if u have seen MettalicGear (sub division of Phanteks). But Phanteks pretty much silent on their budget sub brand. Not much news. Probably they still having supply/demand issue that's not fully resolve yet.
  14. A little advice for my new PC!

    Not sure if ur only eyeing on Cooler Master or maybe there's other brands u also do like. Or u could also wait for the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic Mini (if u have the patience for it) As i'm currently awaiting shipment update for that model on my side.
  15. A little advice for my new PC!

    That mb option is a decent mb that can handle Ryzen 9 3000 Series. Since his using Ryzen 5, it's 100% safe side as the mb VRMs/Mosfet won't so called thermal throttle the cpu. 16GB is now the minimum people nowadays take. Since Ryzen love high frequency ram, 3200MHz is not an issue. Unless he want squeeze more & get 3600MHz or heck get the Gigabyte/TeamGroup 4000++MHz Ram (If his crazy) Not going to say much bout HDD unless he want to opt all out SSD like Semler latest system. The casing, I already provide the alternative model that Cooler Master has to offer for a better air intake/airflow due to the front mesh design. 700W 80+ Bronze is ok since he wanted to get the RTX 3070. But going 1000W is way overkill unless his doing some liquid nitrogen OC crap with it. Since the minimum for that GPU is 650W . But if his going to put tons of light show in his casing (YES, I know Rainbows in the system will help increase ur FPS) at least add 50-100W from it just to be on the safe side (As some ARGB Hubs/controller do consume high wattage due to using the additional sata power).
