But yeah, to swing back, don’t forget to enable xmp in your bios. If that’s Greek to you, just message back and we can walk you through it.

Thanks everybody for your help. I ended up building him a desk too with built in wireless charging. Here's his setup

Yeah I agree.

He bought himself a new chair and some new headphones said he'd get the mounts in next couple months

Pro tip: extra large mouse mats are supposed to go completely under the keyboard

That one is not an extra large mat. The keyboard would take up the whole entire thing

Well he spent $325 on his chair and $225 on his headphones so he's a bit strapped for cash right now. Lol

It would take up most of it. But considering how little space there is between the keyboard and monitor stand, I doubt it would make much of a difference, and at least the keyboard wouldn't wobble

Truth


And frankly, having a ton of mouse travel real estate isn't super important to me. I just measured, and my dpi is set such that it requires almost exactly 2.5" of horizontal movement to get from one side of my 3440x1440 screen to the other. About 1" of vertical movement to get from the bottom to the top.

Once you account for the fact that my mouse is about 3" wide and about 5" tall, all I actually need is about 6" wide by 6" tall. Though I'll admit I have no doubt that tiny space would cause me actual anxiety

So controllers are more your thing?

re: $2500 to build/buy gaming desktop
Not even a little bit. Only games I play with a controller are games that just don't play well with kb/m. Stopping to think for a second, both Ori games and Nier:Automata are the last games I can think of in which I used a controller.

Other games I've played relatively recently were Bioshock Infinite, FO4, and Cyberpunk. Currently girding my loins to no life the absolute frick out of Mass Effect Legendary Edition

Not gonna lie man, im super impressed you were able to find parts right now. I'm having to pay some insane premiums on my build right now. Looks great for that price point.
