ATTENTION: The Navi RX 5700XT and RX 5700 will launch alongside Ryzen 3000 series CPUs with PCIe 4.0 on 7/7/2019. Nvidia is rumored to be releasing a SUPER series that will reportedly see 20 series cards upgraded to one higher card tier: e.g., the 2060 SUPER will perform like a 2070 at the old 2060's price point. More info on the SUPER series possible on 6/21.

4K build:
Is Ryzen 3 (gen 1) enough? Seems so.
I am eyeing a first gen thread ripper for $250, are these still good good vs upcoming gen 3? I’m patient so I can wait.
Thinking Radeon VII because value performance.

However, at this point I also am somewhat interested in going for the eco-friendly route with lower power consumption.

Id be willing to buy a new mobo and case since mine is hot and micro size. I bought a house and moved out of an APT so I can go Big now.

Please advise and please no ray tracing tesselator Vulcan marketing shit. Also please make your response more nuanced than ‘VII IS SHIT, NVIDIA ARE JEWS’.

Data, long term usability, energy draw, applications are far more useful.

Right now eying RVII and threadripper gen 1 12 core or an intel/Nvidia build if i can get one that runs cool and somewhat low power consumption.

4k you're going to be 100% GPU bound. Radeon 7 is good considering especially the vram but the 2080ti is the better card for 4k.
TR is good especially with 1st gen getting huge price cuts but even with the grain of salt from leaked benchmarks the 3950x is going to be far better than TR and all of intel's HEDT cpus. But again for 4k gaming any current gen CPU should do fine

Main use of it is if you wanted to have 3 (or more?) full speed NVMeme drives. Which only really has use for video editing, or running TONs of VMs (which a 16 core could do).
There may be some scientific cases where the bandwidth is useful for a GPU as well, just not for games.

>>71399056
Why the fuck are you spoiling your brother so much? He doesn't need that shit
Get him a 2400G build with a pink case.
But sure, that's a solid build as long as the 2060 Super winds up being 8GB of VRAM like the rumors suggest.

>>71399226
CUs are so massively improved in Navi, that it'll likely do ray tracing better than the 2060 does

2 jews compete for your money.
1440 144 hz.
Or
4K 60hz.

My thoughts.

I can’t see 144hz vs 60 FPS but it’s cheaper and easier to achieve.

4K
I can definately see what it does but its kind of gay because everything is tiny AF. Also not every game even supports 4K interfaces. Lastly graphics cards seem to be 5 years from doing a good job at 4K 60fps ultra settings and if you spend $1000 on the card you’re still not ‘there’. I’ve given up 4K to revert to 1440 for some games and it’s hard. It’s like the jump from 1080 to 480. Blurry and gay looking.

But if you haven’t seen it, you don’t necessarily know what your missing

Adding onto this, you can't downscale to 1440 on a 4k monitor as an even division. 1440 will always look better on a 1440 monitor than on a 4k monitor, so if you're not driving 4k content to it, it's an even worse experience.

>>71400515
Athlons and R3s are basic desktop usage
R5s and R7s are gaming or video editing
R9s are streaming or video editings
TR is for professionals, often those working with VMs and many devices

Yes, graphics card for sure, likely CPU as well. You can get an i7 7700 used, but it might be cheaper to just upgrade the whole platform to AM4. Obviously don't buy anything now

if the cpu needs to to go as well - I've heard speculation of the game needing 3.7+ghz - what would be compatible with the mobo?
>>
>>71400407
Whatever it is as long as it's IPS or OLED
Once you go with deep blacks, you never want to go back
unless the monitor is absolutely huge (like 50") then anything above 1080p is a meme and if you want more vidya grafx then just turn up the in-game rendering/DSR factor setting
144Hz is a plus but how often do you even play games at those framerates?

Hello, /vr/ crossposter here. I am putting the pieces of my retro Windows 7 time machine build together tonight, but I have hit a snag. Should I get a Asus Xonar SE sound card or is the onboard audio good enough? I intend to do some audio recording.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/dgjmbX

I have not assembled a computer since the old Athlon days when AMD was pretty good and not shameful to have. Any other suggestions welcome for audio for this build?
>>
>>71401111
Neither. Why would you buy intel in 2019?
There's a reason you have blatant shills in /pcbg/ spamming stuff directly out from https://imgur.com/a/xh2ny to try to get you to buy Intel even though it's trash now.
Buying a 9600k in 2019 is like paying $250 for a 6300 in 2012, except they didn't even cost that much.
>>
>>71401274
Oh yeah I forgot, there's always something more to wait for until you are proven wrong again.
>>
>>71401372
So no, you didn't.
Nice job.
>>
>>71401346
Wait for Zen2. The onboard memory is likely better than that card, as the audio chipset is directly on the SoC for the lowest possible latency. Likely the only thing better would be a DAC.
And do you really need over 32GB of RAM?

>>71401372
Wow, you're really upset that your Intel CPU keeps getting worse while Ryzen keeps improving even for people who bought it all the way back in 2017.
I guess I'd be upset and have buyers remorse in your position, too, but I wouldn't project and take it out on others.

I wished I waited, but some of the purchases were made long ago. I was mainly interested in the Asus Xonar SE card because I heard it does not have much noise in recording audio and I remembered back in my day a sound card was essential in a build. As for the RAM, I did intend to just have 32GB on 2 sticks, but back in my day it was better to have 2 sticks due to dual channel memory than one large stick, and the processor motherboard I already had seems to be a quad channel memory thing, so I ended up getting more sticks of RAM.

Was about the same, but that was without the new scheduler update and without enabling security fixes on Intel which lowers Intel performance/

AMD was sand bagging so the independent reviews look even more positive for them and crushing for Intel.

And even if they were simply even, X570 is a better platform, and Zen2 is far cooler and lower power.

Any of you niggas ebay? Wanted to upgrade from my 10-liner auction script and looked around on the internet.

Found this project nobody on the internet really talks about:

X470 is confirmed to be in extended production to fill the budget gap at least until B550 comes. Wouldn't be surprised if B550 just ends up being a X470 rebrand.

>>71403900
So long as AMD commits to one socket for a while (unlike Intel LMAO) mainstream motherboards will always be cheaper than Intel due to supply.

And before you ask anyone that buys an X570 is probably retarded or a shill.

Current computer is in it's death throes. I'm looking to build an entire PC minus a graphics card and better monitor while I wait for the supposed Super series of GeForce cards, or Navi.

That's said, i5-9400f? Or R5-2600?(non X). The former is $130 and the latter $160 at microcenter. I want to game at 144HZ 1080p on high to ultra for a few years at least

Let's go over the facts, shall we:
Intel
>some vulnerabilities found, but ALL of them have since been patched
>Intel ME has been locked down, audited by security experts, and is no longer a security risk
>patches have NEGLIGIBLE impact on gaming
>storage IO takes a slight hit
>much higher clocks (better for older games)
>much lower core and cache latencies (very important for gaming)
>more industry-adopted instruction sets, better optimization in Unreal Engine, Unity, Frostbite, etc.
>uses less power-per-clock and has better frequency-to-voltage characteristics (why Intel will always hit 5.0GHz and AMD will never be able to)

AMD
>Ryzenfall and 12 other vulnerabilities STILL NOT COMPLETELY FIXED
>PSP has been fully compromised and gives attackers complete access to all parts of an AMD CPU; AMD REFUSES TO DISABLE PSP ON ANY RYZEN CPU
>has performance loss with its already lower IPC (turning a shit hatchback into a shittier hatchback)
>literally slower NVMe throughput by default because AMD can't into IO queuing optimizations
>lower clocks than Intel's First Gen Core architecture
>almost twice or three times the latency depending on which cores are accessing which cache; made even worse with multi-die Ryzens (like all of the Ryzen 3000s)
>literally no one optimizes for AMD's instruction sets; locked out of the instruction sets the games industry uses
>uses far more power per watt because Infinity Fabric eats power the higher you clock it (guess what was exponentially increased on Ryzen 3000...)

Other notes - PCIe Gen 4 literally doesn't matter
>storage IO loss literally doesn't matter for gaming because 99.99% of games doesn't come close to using a tenth of an NVMe drive's IO throughput

Guys, I bought an used mobo because I'm short on money and even if I wasn't, new stuff is too expensive in this.
So, the thing is, it came with some rust in the mobo audio jack, but it's the only place I found rust, and the rest is all clean from dust too.
Is it much of a problem? I'm going to have trouble with it in the future? Could it fry my board?

I have a Radeon VII + Ryzen 2700 build (got the 2700 very very cheap), works fine for 4K 60 fps all settings max in pretty much everything. I have a 144Hz 4K monitor though (Acer XV273K) so I dial down some settings to achieve 80+ fps. FOSS GNU/Linux drivers are a big plus too.

Only complaint is that Radeon VII runs hot and a bit loud. Overall, no regrets as paying the same for a 8GB 2080 would've been flat out stupid whereas the 2080Ti is too expensive for what it provides - would maybe give you 75 instead of 60 fps for 2x the price.

adding ryzen 1700 means adding DDR4 RAM, and a new motherboard. At the same time, you'd probably want to replace the power supply unless it's newer than the rest of the system.


It goes from a $250-300 upgrade with just the RX 580, to a $600+ upgrade.

Also, I have a HD6850 and want to upgrade, however everything is way too much €€€, so I was thinking about a used 960-2GB or the like. Should I? Is there a better alternative and/or what's the best brand? I remember something about MSI being the go-to with gtx 9xx.

Does anyone know of an ATX pc case that has at least 4 FRONT-FACING usb ports that aren't all the way at the top of the case or behind some useless plastic door?
It is very hard to find something with this simple requirement, since every case nowadays has a giant piece of smooth tempered glass or plastic taking up the entire front panel with no room for expansion or usb ports.
So far the only atx case I have found with this feature is Cooler Master's N600, as well some OEM cases that are a pain in the ass to find seperately. Pic related is basically what I'm interested in.

You're the retard: waiting for new releases means that older models get a discount and the second hand market gets flooded of perfectly fine cards at ridiculous prices because actual retards must have the latest greatest bestest technology no matter what and want to get back some money out the card they bought less than a year before.

I mean, the only thing potentially interesting about super is that for the first time since gtx900 series, nvidia is offering unlocked cards. That is reason alone to pay attention, prices are still insane but I guarantee that 3rd party modders would throw huge amount of support and variants since Navi and vega boards still have locked bios and are getting rid of power tables.

I put 650w cause your PSU runs at a greater effeciency at half load rather than say 70%. So it's better to go bigger.
>just use the current one that is 3.5 years old until it dies?
Long story short no. And considering your PSU is some random let's not risk it blowing up and frying the rest of your pc components.
It's safer to replace every 5 years but good PSUs can last you 10year +.
I'm not gonna go into technicals about checking your voltage ripple and shit but just get a new PSU so you atleast have a quality part driving your expensive pc.

If you can afford it, all indications are that the 3950X is "the best", but the 3800X is still better than a 9900k while being cheaper and cheaper to get the most out of.

their rated efficiency which is 80
The rating of 80. Doesn't mean they run better at 80% load..the 80% is pertaining to how well it converts the energy. So basically you lose 20% of the energy via the transformation of AC to DC(I could be getting this part wrong. Someone please correct me if so).
But what else I said is right. It uses 80% of the electricity it draws. The rest is dissipated through heat and electronic magic.

Like the other anon said, RX 570 is fine. You'll mostly get acceptable framerates, but sometimes the FX CPU will hold you back. For instance you can't play PUBG with an FX CPU
>>
>>71408963
Okay, well the ones you recommended are more expensive here than I though, although I see that ram prices fell like a rock and since I go with a 3700x anyway I would rather save money on the ram being 3200 cl16 and get a better PSU. I guess this will be it.

there's no magical bottleneck formula it depends entirely on how CPU heavy each particular game is

>>71409057
Great stuff. If you wanna save even more try getting a used ram.
Ram and CPU are like the most resilient pc parts. Failures with those are down to manufacturing flaws that present themselves within the 1st or 2nd year. That's why they offer lifetime warranties on ram.
So get used ram if you can find for like half the price dude.
Knowing you have quality parts feels really neat dude.
>>
>>71409226
Really? Fuck!
It's about 170 euromonies for a kit of 2x8GB 3600 CL 16 in yuropoor
It's about 90 for 2x8GB 3200 CL16 or about 180 for 2x16GB
>>
>>71408460
any difference between what you listed and the 450 tomahawk ive seen shilled everywhere?
I already got 4x4 ram so i can drop the ripjaws untill i want to upgrade for some reason.
Might splurge a bit for 1tb ss, or might just get the m2 like you showed and suplement it with a 250gb ssd that some guy on kijiji is selling for 70 leafs.
Got a 750w gold psu for 75 leafs on kijiji aswell.
Not sure about the case yet, my friend has a few extra chink rgb fans, so i might want a seethrough pane.
Still not sure about the gpu yet, people say good things about the vega 56, but i also kinda want a fucking monster to mog my friends who said i would forever be a console peasant. Nothing too big maybe a rtx2070 for some raytraced minecraft memes, Might wait a bit longer for some sales, probably wont happen but i can hope.

I guess, but i'd probably get whatever the cheapest 240hz monitor is.

pretty sure they all use the same panel.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01K7V0DRG/

Around $150 US. But you can get 3200CL14 which is better for $125.

>>71409323
Yep, those are probably all the same panel, at a glance.
1440@120 is better, though, unless all you play is CSGO.
>>
>>71409296
get 3200 cl16 ram and OC it, you can probably take it pretty far as well if you tried hard enough
I got mine to cl14 easily, waiting for the 3600x to drop before I really go at it though
>>
>>71409328
Thanks anon, but reading some the Amazon reviews is making me squeamish. I won't have an AM4 board until July so I won't be able to test if the timings and speeds are as advertised and send it back.

>>71409341
Okay, so it's not that much of a difference.

>>71409369
This seems to be the better option. Thanks anon! I may as well get the 2x16 kit in that case. Now I just need to decide whether I'm getting the 3600 or 3700x (upgrading my ITX machine and I'm more inclined to that 65W TDP).

You can't compare results on 1st gen ryzen, the memory controller is completely different. Getting over 3466 on that took serious effort, not the plug and play compatibility Zen2 will have.

No idea what that is or what's special about it but mindfactory and alternate seem to be most popular in krautland.

Looks like Alternate makes you buy from their regional site if they have one (Belgium in my case) and it doesn't even look like they have that particular kit. Damn.

>>71409558
Hmm... I guess I'll re-look into that Amazon entry again. Thanks anon!

>>71409558
Yep. We also don't know how much it will (or won't) like dual rank. Not that you can even get 8GB sticks in DR, but still.

>>71409539
And 3733CL17 is even slower than 3200CL14 than 3600CL16 is. Fuck you guys are dumbass memers.
>>
>>71409687
Sure? >>71404627
>>
>>71409531
Strictly for gaming you should be better with the 3600, but if you ever want to do something more cpu intensive, like re encode your porn collection or anything like that, get the more cores.
>>
>>71409687
>Not that you can even get 8GB sticks in DR
Yes, you can. Lots of older 3000+ kits used it.
>>
>>71409727
I will be doing some encoding and re-encoding and I do use VM's for some testing once in a while. I'm just not sure if I'll be doing it enough to warrant the additional cost. I still have some time to decide. Thanks!

If you're looking to build a budget, most bang for your buck kind of PC that is not supposed to do anything fancy except the very occasional gaymen is the ryzen 5 2600 still the value king despite the 3600 being around the corner?

I take it the 3600 is going to be at least 200€ at release and I've already seen some deals for the 2600 at 120€ with some games I don't want as a cherry on top.

It kinda feels stupid to go for the 2600 with zen 2 about to release, but I feel like that objectively it's not worth it to pay 80% more for the 3600.

I guess I could wait a few more months until the prices come down, but I've already waited for a long ass time, due to 150€+ memory prices last year and crypto gpu shenanigans. I'm sitting here with a Phenom II x4 955 and 4GB DDR2(!) so it's really about time to upgrade.

tl;dr: grab a 2600 on sale or pay more for 3600?
>>
>>71410589
how budget do you want to go because an APU seems like the best choice here
anyway
any downsides to getting a big 4k TV as a monitor if I sit close to it and use it for non multiplayer games?
>>
>>71410589
>is the ryzen 5 2600 still the value king
Yes

>grab a 2600 on sale or pay more for 3600?
Depends on your framerate standards. You can expect a 3600 to have i5 8400/9400F performance in most cases, depending on the particular game

If OLED, burn in. Otherwise you don't want anything bigger than 27" if you're sitting at standard monitor distances

I'd imagine the 3600 being better than those since the 2600 already ties those processors.

Fug I’m so stupid. I thought it was going out optical but it’s going through the HDMI which must mean there’s a shitty DAC getting noise pollution.

Not really. I have an R5 2600 but not because it currently is as good on average as an i5 8400. In the future I'm betting it'll close the gap, considering they're pretty close now and new consoles will be Zen

Are there any B450 mobos that support 3600mhz RAM?
>>
>>71410794
The mobo has very little impact on the RAM support. Using different topology and better tracing can allow an extra speed grade increase but the real limiter is the CPU's IMC.
It's extremely likely all but the very worst will support 4000+ with Zen2.

I've spent most of today doing research on building my first PC
I grew up on consoles and I don't feel like having to buy a brand new one every few years just so I can play the 2 or 3 games a generation that actually interest me (also a larger selection of small time games on PC and I'm due for an upgrade anyway)
I used pc part picker and logical increments to put together a parts list.
the most strenuous thing I'd do on it would probably be gaming but I'm not a 4K or bust kinda guy. I'm also going to use programs like NX and Autodesk Inventor from time to time.
How does this part list look? I have no fucking idea what I'm doing so some criticism is very welcome
>>
>>71410828
Why do different mobos list different supported RAM frequencies then? There are some where the manufacturer doesn't think it will even do 3000...
>>
>>71410853
>spent most of a day "researching"
>somehow landed on the 8700
wow
>>
>>71410740
I can't really get excited about IPS, considering edge backlight bleed and glow/contrast. ASUS Tuf monitors have the right idea with ELMB sync, I just need them to release a 27" VA now
>>
>>71410862
It is simply all they could be bothered to validate before release.
>>
>>71410853
>logical increments
Garbage

If you can just wait a month for new CPUs and graphics cards. If you really can't wait, your build is fine, but get a cheaper cooler and an SSD.
>>
>>71410911
>>
>>71410931
>>
>>71410853
Wait a month for the new Ryzen.
Get a 500 GB SSD for OS+software+games.
Get a 4TB HDD to hoard data.
Do NOT fucking build a PC without an SSD. Not having an SSD today is simply unimaginable.
CPU cooler is not necessary, especially with AMD. Their stock coolers are decent, unlike Intel's which are complete ass.
>>
>>71411062
The cooler that comes with the 2600x is kinda loud at full speed.
>>
>>71411089
Well sure he can buy one later if he really needs it, but for starting it feels like an unnecessary expense.
>>
>>71411122
It's worth mentioning that its worth buying one if you care about noise. On the otherhand we don't know that much about the Ryzen 2 coolers.
>>
>>71411152
>On the otherhand we don't know that much about the Ryzen 2 coolers.
Ther's nothing we don't know about them, they're the same.

Is there a good mATX that will support the r7 3800x? Don't care about pcie4
