Use the money you are investing on the monitor in something else. Maybe get a better motherboad+processor.
Rule of the thumb. The graphics card is supposed to be the most expensive component of your build, then comes the CPU.
Also I would suggest going for a Antec power supply. Their power supplies are made my Sea Sonic(most of the time) and they are pretty good.

i watched a youtube video which explains that >6c6t cpu stutters when using a game engine like farcry's that can utilize a higher core count. is that the fear/problem? i filtered newegg for lowest price case without windows that has the most ventilation. the cooler has same performance as d-15 but is louder and cheaper

i want to use gsync with 240hz
higher frequency monitor = higher scanout rate = lower latency independent of frame rate output
higher frame rate = lower motion blur = crt like motion clarity

1440p 144Hz VA is where it at.

>>70559818 me
rather, anything lower than 8c/t with that engine will stutter. are there any other games where this is true? i understand this game is the only that has this issue

what's your monitor?
>>
>>70559848
The Witcher 3 is another example. Anything less than 8 threads gets stutters.
Mafia 3. There's a few. BV1 and BFV multiplayer, too, IIRC.

It's typically stupid to get anything other than a 2600/X, 2700X, or 9700k for gaming. 9600k might get higher AVERAGE fps than the 2600X in a lot of games, but in the worst cases it is worse while the 2600X performs consistently smooth with still good averages.
Also keep in mind that benchmarking games is a done an unrealistic scenario with nothing running in the background. In the real world, you have other programs running in the background which will affect the weaker 6c/6t CPUs more.

thats because most games ALLOCATE not use ALLOCATE 4-6GB of VRAM with some exceptions getting to 8GB.
16GB VRAM is utterly useless to gamers as you don't get a performance boost from excess VRAM.

The way you cry about 6GB not being enough youd think that was the case which is why I have to point out that it isn't.
Now that is out of the way
> But you get a performance and/or visual quality LOSS with not having enough when a game can use or NEEDS more.
And vast majority of games don't need more than 6GB of VRM, there is a few exceptions of games that allocate more than 6GB of VRM.

It's not bad, but I don't want to upgrade from 1080p@144 Hz until I can get a decent 10bit panel for cheap. The g-sync model is actually cheaper sometimes. I'm not really sure what it will take for them to get cheaper than $500 USD though. microLED is suppose to bring the cost of larger displays down. Maybe when 4K becomes a larger percentage of the market, 1440p will be cheaper.

You've made a lot of poor choices. The 8700K will likely be thread limited in the near future. It's already thermally limited without a delid. 3400 MHz memory is an odd choice and you can probably get the same results with a cheaper 3200 MHz b-die kit. While SSDs have become cheaper, it doesn't make sense to me to buy a 1 TB one if you're still buying 3.5" HDDs. Rather buy a 256-500 GB m.2 sata ssd and a larger HDD.

Last all 2080s are poor value. Get a used 1080 ti off ebay for like 100 USD less than the cheapest 2080.

Firstly i bought the parts of this build on sale over the last 4 months, paid roughly 1000EURO, monitor included. Secondly i'm fine with paying 800, maybe 850 but that's the hard limit, for a 2080, that's not the issue. I'm just looking for a good 2080 and want to avoid the b-grade models. Blowers, failed die, cheap and shitty heatsinks/fans etc. Thirdly i'm not buying used. That's out of the question.
>>
Question;

I already used liquid metal when I delidded my CPU two years ago.

Now I need to replace the CPU cooler - should I use liquid metal, or just a good thermal paste? It seems like metal would be worth a couple of degrees, but there’s a risk of me fucking it up and shorting something.
>>
>>70561810
>The 8700K will likely be thread limited in the near future.

What is it, 12 threads? Unlikely. It should be a good CPU for a few years.

HT is so weak compared to real SMT, though.

>>70561936
I've seen vega 56 for 300 euro fairly often. I think they are 6 heatpipe and 2-3 fan models (red devil and pulse)
But at both 350 euro, I'd go with Vega 56 for 1440p but the 2060 instead for 1080p.

PCpartpicker has an option for listing prices paid if it was already purchased on sale. Get a delid kit, they're cheap and safe. Just get the cheapest one on sale from one of the AIB partners you've had a good experience with. I don't know the Euro market well but in the US I would go EVGA, Gigabyte, ASUS, or MSI. You're worried about resellers screwing you, but you're fine with Nvidia charging you can extra $300 for last years model? There are less than year old AIB 1080 Tis in mint condition selling for less than ref 2080s.

Oh and regarding HT, it's been said HTs are roughly 40% the performance of a real core at best. My understanding was HT improves in performance with clock though.

My main point was 8c/16t will likely become mainstream by next year with Ryzen 3000 (Zen 2), Sunny Cove/10th gen Core (Icelake), and 9th gen consoles (Zen 2/Navi).
>>
>>70562000
Just to explain you a little bit about my mindset: If there was a store selling the exact same model for 50 bucks more than anyone else but with a 110% guarantee that it won't fail ever unless i'm literally pouring a glass of water into the case while it's running, i'd take that deal. That's why i don't want to buy used. I can't just walk into the store, slap the card on the counter and ask for a refund. I don't want to deal with resellers.

>>70562081
Then I think you want to buy an extended warranty. I've heard a few people do this with EVGA and by the time their card fails, they only have newer gens in stock and people essentially get an upgrade cycle for only $100 on their last card purchase.

Hows the new Navi going to compare to vega 56 and 64?
>>
>>70562198
Why?
I plan to use it to shill/browse online and run ms office programs isn't i7 overkill for this?
I can't fit bigger heatsink into that case and i can't fit gpu in that case.

Gays please help me on AIRFLOW

This is someone else’s photo but I have the same case.

I was thinking - the rear 92mm fan & the fan under the heatsink are pointless. Just have 2x120mm side fans in Push/Pull. What do you think.

>>
>>70562313
go amd then, get a G cpu
that cooler isnt really better that any stock cooler.
encoding is CPU bound so you might need more cores, amd is better then
but video editing uses GPU, wich you would need. so its like, consider a different case, get a cheapass 1050ti or weaker.
at some point its program dependent too

I'm shooting for 1080p gaming on max settings with great frame rates.
The 970 is being recycled until I get my next paycheck. I'm planning on replacing it with maybe an RTX 2070.
Any suggestions?
>>
>>70562821
2060 is capable of 1080p144
with 2070 you might consider a future monitor upgrade, and we had rumours of 2070ti, so might consider saving a bit more

does it needs to be a i7 9th gen?

might consider some case fans later on. you sure that case can take the heatsink? how many radiators can it take?

Yes, the 8c and 12c X suffix chips will both either match or exceed a 9700k in games.

I wasn't sure on the gpu, I'll look into the 2060 and wait a bit to see if the 2070ti rumors lead anywhere.
I chose the 9th gen, because it's only $30 more than the 8th gen.

Built a rig back in December and I'm getting random BSOD crashes while playing visually intense games while downloading stuff in the background. Doesn't seem to happen as much if I'm not running anything else with the game. Whatcrashed tells me it's ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl. Would that info imply that maybe a thermal issue or maybe something wrong with my processor/board? I'm kinda at a loss here.
>>
9400F or 2600X then?
>>
>>70563352
Does it ever crash when not downloading anything?
Is anything overclocked?
Have you run any sort of diagnostics, smart test on the drive you're downloading to? sfc scan?

Whichever you want who even cares at this point.
Both shit in their own ways.

don't get x chips.
so the question is if 2600 or 9400f. depends on the price and if you are only using your pc as a glorified gaming console. 9400f will give you ~5 fps more, but will suck on everything else

What's wrong with X chips?
For 25 bucks it seems like a decent upgrade to me.

it's a factory overclock of a normal 2600. overclock it yourself and save the money for a better cooler or something

You're fucking retarded. 2600X are better bins, 2600 can't be manually oc'd to match even the stock performance on 2600X.

well, cpu wise you're locked to 6th gen, so an i7 would be the best you could go, which would also be pretty damn capable for emulation.
gpu, for 1080p anything 570 and up would suffice, except if you're using higher internal resolution and some other fancy options, ymmv. as per op, check for used parts, people are offloading 1070s at pretty enticing prices. your current gpu is on the weak side i think, but for emulation i'd upgrade the cpu first.

You can probably get a 480 GB SSD without increasing the price too much.

>>70563736
Well, the 2200G is a Zen part. It does not need the other features from the b450, unless you're using it as a stopgap for Zen2, then by all means, get a B450.

You can get a 128GB SSD for $19,
together with the 1TB HDD.
128GB are enough for the operating system and your regularly used programs.
Just don't put any big games or videos or anything on it.

I've been living off a 128GB SSD for 5 years, pic related. You just gotta use it correctly.
$20 more for an OS & apps SSD is totally worth the speedup on a budget pc
>>

Let me add, while I CAN manage on 128GB, 250GB would be a much better choice. Only suggesting cause you're on a budget.

I tried connecting another PSU (its fans always spin), tried connecting to both the motherboard and GPU video ports and tried removing the CMOS battery, yet there's still no video signal.

The motherboard is probably broken. How do I know if the power supply is broken, too?
>>
>>70562997
I still wouldn't pick a 9409F over a 2600x purely because it lacks hyperthreading and it's going to run games with stuff in the background much worse and show it's age much sooner.

Luckily nothing was damaged, so I just had to buy a new PSU.
>>
>>70564444
Anyone?
>>
>>70564570
Capacitor aging?
Yes and no

Aging is real, but as long as you don't go full-retard and get the absolute low-end and minimum for your build, it's a moot issue. It only really affects the maximum wattage output. For low-to-midrange builds, For this very reason, I always recommend 600-650 watt PSU for low-to-mid range builds, 750-850 for high-end builds. Anything beyond that, you're just wasting money, unless it's a specialized build. Use until failure.

GPU pairing has a way more important effect than does expensive RAM. For most buyers pairing with an RX 570 or even RTX 2060 (in most cases) the R5 and i5 will provide almost identical framerates.

do you think they make it in those absurd sizes of 30x70cm?

at thsi point you should suspect that you will receive a fucking brick or one of those heavy artifacting unRMAable RTX cards

>>70565475
you sure of it? reselling the 2060 will kinda ruin its value

tbqh you could do it with 1080p144hz monitors, a 2070 would not be really needed by then unless you want to futureproof

I was seeing that supposedly a common giveaway is that the "high-end" card has a VGA port on it.

Just remember that if you use PC parts picker, make sure to manually add items that you want to purchase from the actual website. PC parts picker gets a commission off parts you buy through their website.

I've heard it's a common tactic, yes. Sounds like in this case there just is no card at all though, it was just phishing.

do you really need those extra FPS?

why not wait for navi memery?

why tho. you can go on craigslist and get one for 500$ with everything included and tested.

sell it for a 2080ti and get actually noticeable performance.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but doesn't PPP have that, plus some functionality where you can see builds containing a specific part? I don't get what it brings to the table, other than 'inspo'

I've literally bought two 1080ti's off kijiji (canadian craigslist) for 650$ cad (480usd) with warranty in the past month.

you seem pretty upset that another site exists with the same functionality :(

There was a specific build on build.gg that I wanted to see but forgot the name of the site. It's literally the same but there's some builds on there that aren't on PPP.

pls sir , garuda demands that u buy the superior air cool nvidia. pls namaste ty.

>>70565816
I guess the good thing is that everything is still under warranty I think. I'll give it a shot.
>>
>>70566736
if its under warranty dont even try it
call them, tell them what happened and already see what you can do about RMA
if they discover you fucked with it they will try to say its your fault and warranty wont cover

I'm mainly looking for a monitor at the moment for use with my work laptop and Nintendo Switch, but I will be building a more powerful gaming PC in the near future. We have two Dell U2415 monitors at work and I really like how crisp the image quality is on those displays. It's especially noticeable how good the image quality is because I use an older Dell P-series as my central monitor in a 3-monitor setup.

It seems like Dell doesn't offer a 27-inch Ultrasharp monitor with a refresh rate of 144Hz. Do you know if any other manufacturer offers a display with similar image sharpness but with a higher refresh rate?

Be quiet 600 is quieter (while sacrificing cooling performance)
Also the bottom of the define S is a bit wobbly.
The front door doesn't open, instead you need to pull it off.
Lastly the front panel doesn't have sound dampening material on it.

Is the M2 form factor really that much better than a conventional SSD?
>>
>>70567314
NVMe is what matters and i gotta tell you its really hard to feel a difference between it and a SSD unless you know what you are doing

also M.2 didnt caught up, i see a lot of sales of m.2 drives because noone wanna buy them.

hope not, vega 56 might not be a endgame gpu but right now amd needs something to compete with 2080ti
>>
>>70567528
ok sure i'll look at it.
you want two ram modals for duel channel efficiency. it doesn't have to total 16gbs. do 2x4gb or whatever you want as long as they're the same or something. listen to me you need to do that. after that.. idk anything about europoor translations or about amd platforms but best bet would be to get lowest price psu/case and stretch the gpu to whatever higher if you can. if not then you're done i suppose
>>
>>70567568
>this is the shill's reference of choice
Rent free. I didn't post that; how could you be so stupid to think that's my posting style?
>>
>>70567528
get 2x4gb, never buy a single stick
you will cripple memory speeds because of only one stick, and ryzen needs that shit
>>
>>70567619
>>70567638
Alright i can manage two sticks as long as i stick (forgive the pun) to 8GB. I've already got the cheapest mATX case but i don't wanna risk it on the power supply.

The 4GB version of the RX580 is 40€ less than the 8GB model, is it worth getting considering i'm not going over 1080p and i don't play very demanding games?

Are any of these worth it? I've already got a capable computer, but wouldn't mind a sort of secondary computer for random shit. NAS, VMs, etc.
Also, what are some general things to look out for when buying used hardware?
>>
>>70567675
check benchmarks of both cards, but afaik its best to keep the 8gb since you wont be able to even consider upgrading. 8gb is futureproof, specially for 1080p60. all that might live with you for over 5 years with no issues. might consider buying used as well, maybe even as a upgrade

the upgrade paths i see is kinda stuck but consider ~40 or so for a cooling solution so you can overclock, and for like 60 you can bling the shit out of it with cheap chink RGB fans so think hard about the case. you can also get SSDs for it later
>>
>>70567706
I'm retarded and i forgot to mention there's no storage in the list because i have a spare 500GB SSD i'm gonna be using.

The PC is not for me but for my gf, she has very limited space and the PC will be stuck under the desk so she doesn't care about RGB shit or looks, also no OC because she's not tech-savvy.
I'll keep the 8GB then, thanks

>-whats-the-best-300-graphics-card/
Vega 56.

1660Ti isn't bad at all for 1080p, though. It'll be good when they start going on sale.

>>70567598
Navi is going to be midrange at first.
An "enthusiast end" 2080Ti level of card likely won't come until 2020.

Considering though that the midrange Navi seems to be Vega56 performance on a die smaller than the RX580, it's looking good that AMD will actually be able to make an enthusiast end card again. But they need the volume market and marketshare right now.

>>70567636

Without knowing exact numbers, realistically what sort of performance uplift will there be between a Ryzen 2600 & Ryzen 3300/X?
Would've said 3600 in place of the 3300, but assuming "leaks" are correct I'd mostly be interested in a 6 core.
>>
>>70567675
i say its ok as long as you keep to 1080p and don't have work project data assets that exceed that (i don't know what i'm talking about) or have custom 3rd party high res game textures packages mods applied (like are common with skyrim mod texture packs or whatever are common now or something like that)
>>70567693
i think that the synology or whatever nas boxes are better because of the energy bloat otherwise. they have nice software i hear. can probably find a ready to go solution for whatever software thing you are thinking about implementing
>>70567706
>consider ~40 or so for a cooling solution so you can overclock, and for like 60 you can bling the shit out of it with cheap chink RGB fans so think hard about the case. you can also get SSDs for it later
do the opposite of this unironically
>>70567754
yes any ssd will be great
>>
Yeah, at this point HBM is a meme. That or AMD's engineers are incompetent. Nvidia still uses gddr.
>>
>>70567848
Well, my intention isn't just a NAS, which is why I mentioned VMs and it would also be used for other testing
>>
>750W FSP Hydro G PSU for $100 CAD
Seems like the guy buys bulk computer parts or something to resell, box has no shrink wrap on it, but seems untouched otherwise.
PSU seems like the most important part of a system, but if it's in pristine condition, what would I be getting into?
I'm so conflicted, it's a pretty good price for a Gold rated fully-modular PSU with reasonable ratings, but it's in a condition unknown to me.
