What's the best way to get a fuckton of storage into my PC that's not dirt slow or madly expensive?
So what is the point of new gpus if the performance and cost is the same?
>>80346709Refurbished 4tb drives for less than $10 a tb, or wait for a sale on WD Easystores for $15-16 a tb and do the cuckshuck.
>>80346740Scamming retards with brand marketing and gimmicks. This is why anyone with any sense didn't buy into the Turing cards. It is also why you should think long and hard about buying an Ampere card if it at all costs more. Not that it matters because you'd have to be a genuine idiot to pay double MSRP right now anyway.
>>80346709SATA HDDs are still fine for storage. if you want cheaper then you could shuck drives from external enclosures.
>>80346792>refurbished hard drivesThere's two PC components you should never buy used, and that is hard drives and PSUs. I mean will it work for awhile? Yeah probably more or less, but I wouldn't count on it for anything of value.
>>80346893yeah, but this guy is probably just going to fill it with anime.
>>80346893i don't really agree on PSUs.if its a low budget system then you're better off getting a used FSP or Seasonic over a "GUANGDONG 5000W NIGGERATOR" that will actually have some protection circuitry if it dies.used hard drives is retarded.
It's impossible to buy anything higher than a 1050 ti in my city.
>>80346740If anything the performance is worse and you pay more. You can get a used 2070 super for the price that the 3060 will be or even a used 2080 if you go with scalper prices.
Should I go for the new intel chips releasing this march with igpu for casual gaming? Perhaps some AMD apus? Not buying a gpu nowadays.
Help I burnt my Power cable in the PSU slot, and now I have a new cable but I'm scared it's gonna have the same fate, anyone here got any suggestions on how to prevent that from happening?
>>80347499Wait for Alder Lake Q3/4 this year.Roughly 20% performance increase on single core while also having 16 (-sixteen-) cores for multitasking purposes and supporting DDR5 and PCIe5.0
>>80347541How did you burn it in the first place?
>>80346640DICEs Star Wars Battlefron 2 crashes randomly mid game when i have xmp profile enabled in bios at 3200 MHzit's fine with it off and then the ram is at 2133 MHzI assume my ram is bad, is there anything I can do? Like clock it higher than default without crashing gamesI mostly played older games for the past year since I built it so have not noticed any problems, might it be just this game?
>>80347569Idk bro, I just smelt burning and checked it after 2 days.
>>80347569>>80347671It may have been Bitcoin mining actually.
It's all just so hopeless.
>>80347499AMD's integrated graphics are typically much better than Intel's. They're actually designed for gaming and not just to be a display output. Even still they'll be wrecked by anything better than a GT1030. Unfortunately the latest APUs available on the DIY market use Zen+ cores which are two generations behind which makes Intel a much more compelling option for expansion. Especially after they slashed their prices. An i3 10100 will hold its own with any video card whereas a 3400G will bottleneck, to some degree, anything more powerful than a 2060Super. On the other hand B450 is a more viable upgrade platform with 2 generations of CPU upgrades while H410/B460 won't support Intel 11th gen.
if i have 1 rear 120mm exhaust fan and 2 120mm intake fans at the front, would adding a 140mm exhaust fan at the top be worse than adding a 120mm fan, air pressure wise, or am i just being autistic?
What's the best bet Thursday for the 3060? Line up in front of BB or try to compete with the world on line?
>>80347928>What's the best bet Thursday for the 3060?Giving up.
>>80347660Run some memory benchmarking software. Memtest, Geekbench, Aida64, etc. and see if you get errors. Since it's only one program causing the crash I would assume that that is the culprit before your RAM. If they do report errors, or crash, then you can either RMA the RAM or try tuning the timings and voltage to achieve stability. Might be that all it needs is a 100mV bump for full stability.
>>80347928If you want to line up you should be there the second they close on Wednesday, anything half assed will just make you miss out and get upset over your wasted time.
>3080s are $2000 nowActual joke, I should have just bought one at $1400
>>80347811Depending on the fan speeds it might make a near-neutral or positive pressure system into a negative pressure one. Negative pressure is usually better for temps but worse for dust buildup since air is being brought in through unfiltered gaps. Why are you adding fans in the first place?
Guess I'm going to be stuck with this whiny ass 2070 for another two years.
don't worry guys, he's on it
>>80347991im just trying to figure out the theoretically ideal fan setup for my case.would 1 exhaust and 2 intakes theoretically achieve neutral / slightly positive air pressure?
>>80347695A) What's your PSU rated for vs all of your components?B) Which specific cable? I'm guessing it was PCIE given your later mention of coin mining but who knows.C) You weren't doing something spectacularly retarded like double-plugging a single PCIE cable into a GPU that uses more than 225w or something similar like that dumbass from Reddit a few months ago, right?
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH FUCK THIS I'M GETTING A PREBUILT
>>80348191Assuming you're running them at the same speed, yes. For most builds the 2/3 front 1 rear front-to-back configuration is perfectly adequate. Some benefit from an extra top exhaust if, say, the VRMs are getting toasty under OC. After that you're mostly adding noise but it may be necessary if you're pushing a limit OC (though you really ought to use an open-air bench for that sort of thing).
>>80347747What pisses me off the most is that we can't just back-order stuff, especially direct from manufacturers. Even if it took 2-3 goddamn months for it to finally ship if I could at least get updates on queue status and see it ever-inching towards my order I could at least feel like SOMETHING is being done. Instead we're stuck with gimmicks like random lotteries where even if you DO win some asshole with a bot has already hoovered up all the supply.
>tfw Haswell pc is still alive and kicking>DDR5 is in sightWho else here /value/?
>>80347499The integrated graphics are gimped for the desktop chips. The laptops got a 96EU version that is about on par with vega 8, it it's fine for 1080p30 low in most games. The desktop rocket lake chips only have 32EU, so you'll oly have about 1/3rd the performance of a vega 8 APU. If you wanna go for an AMD APU that's good for being used as a standalone CPU in the future, either look at the 4xxxG or 5xxxG APUs, the latter of which is obviously zen 3 and thus very overpriced right now. You should be able to find them on places like ebay and aliexpress, as they're not sold through normal retailers.
>>80348525I'd rather just have raffles. The only case where I'd want to back-order is from the manufacturer since who knows what store is gonna get stock and I don't want to place orders on multiple ones, especially if they want me to pay for it there and then.
How long does an openened (but properly stored) thermal paste lasts? At least once per year I do a deep clean of my PC and I always have leftover paste but never use it again due to fear that it would've gone bad in the months that was storaged.
>>80347992I bet you still sit on a 1080p display.>>80348379Might as well get a gaming notebook at that point.
>>80348750>Might as well get a gaming notebook at that point.Has the GPU shortage really been enough to make /g/ and /v/ flip on gaming laptops? This is like the tenth time I've seen someone recommend a gaming laptop in the past two weeks.I remember a time when you'd get laughed off of the board for even considering a gaming laptop.
>>80348775Most gaming laptops are unironically amazing price/performance picks now compared to how utterly absurd the PC market has become.
>>80348749Probably depends on brand but you should be able to get away with using the same tube for 2 to 3 years.
whats the best method to underclock a GPU? i put my 3060ti at 85 percent power usage. should I adjust the voltages too?
>>80348775Ever since mining became a thing the prices of components have been rising like smoke in a forest fire, and not just GPU.After literal decades of keeping a steady price RAM's more than doubled in price in the past 3 years.Nowadays if you're not having fun then building is not worth it anymore.
>>80348775What the other Anon said.Gaming laptops/notebooks have gotten their value on par with desktops in recent times, but the last couple of generations the performance has been what I would describe as adequate for something that is portable. If I had to get a new pc today I would get a laptop and wait until these supply/price issues blow over.Just don't buy any msi laptops.
>>80348749Why would it go bad, it's not like it spoils. It will eventually dry out if it comes into contact with air, but if you close the tube properly you could still use it decades later
>>80348563Based. I would've stuck with my 3570k but I got a 10400f for just $100 and 2x8GB of DDR4 memory $50. Too good to pass up, and I finally don't have and stutters in newer games anymore.
>>80348868Once the factory seal is broken you'll always get some air leak. Heck, even before that it'll get in there. I haven't seen any actual testing on the matter but my guess is it'll decay gradually before fully drying out. Maybe worth a few degrees but still better than the stuff that's been stuck to your IHS for 5 years.
>literally hundreds of GPUs drop>immediately on it in seconds at bestbuy>they put me in a queue>10 seconds later goneliterally hopeless
>>80347928>$500+ prescalped from retailers
>>80348863>Just don't buy any msi laptops.Haha good thing I don't have an MSI GE66 arriving tomorrowGod dammit. At least I have a 30 day return period. I didn't even see any complaints about it.
I'm an absolute brainlet when it comes to PC. I only play PoE and Dota. What do I need to run Dota at 144hz comfortably?
>Not making your own fresh artisinal thermal paste
>>80349161My experience with msi is from personally using and recommending other people their products between 2011 and 2017, and there were way to many warranty tickets opened in that time. Meanwhile all Asus products I've handled have never broken down during their warranty products, nor has there been any major issues either. If msi got their quality assurance shit together in the last couple of years, then good for them, but I wouldn't buy from them even if they were the last manufacturer on the planet!
Reminder to beware of Radeon garbage drivers.

>>80347558lol welp pcie 4.0 had a short shelf life
>>80349301Who cares gpu doesn't even saturate pcie 3.0 yet.
Are there any good cases for mini itx that follow the design similar to pic related? (not open benches)>board face up with cooler on top (i want to put a fuckhuge rock on it)>gpu is short/1 fan, length isn't an issue and doesn't exceed board dimensions>power supply on bottom
>>80349250you should set yourself a budget first, it becomes a lot easier to help you that way.what current hardware do you have as well?
>>80349343Probably not. If you really wanted to you could 3d print that one build a cube around it with perforated sheet or also 3d print it with tiny holes in it.
>>80348990Nice, you should always jump on good opportunities!My i7-4790k is actually second hand, can stutter in AAA titles but I don't play that shit so it doesn't matter for me.>>80349289Looks okay, not to much gaming design cancer going on either.>>80349343Thermaltake Core V1 ?

>>80349289pretty good deal, unless 3060 laptops are available right now and similar price, you will be able to run most games pretty decently, though keep in mind the nitro series is pretty low build quality, but 144hz ips for that price is great
>>80349389they are still $1050-1200 in canada, but that's retail, not sure if you guys are talking about scalper prices.
any Europeans here on the EVGA waitlist? should I even bother?
>>80348704the 3400g seems to best from them all, prices on ali are ridiculous for this 2 year old cpu thou. 4xG and 5xG are there too but prices are even worse. I had really high hopes for the intel chips...was hoping it would be on par with 3400g.

Why didn’t you buy in January when supply was fresh?
>>80349615I bought a used 2080 last year for 300 when people were panic selling their RTX 2000 cards.
>>80349395So brittle plastic body?I'm planning to plug it into the tv & use a controller, so hopefully it doesn't bother me too much.should I get this or try a portable LAN build?could be called to travel for school any minute, not sure what's better to carry on plane.
>replied to like a dozen of second-hand-GPU offers on the local variant of craigslist>all offers were closed without me getting a single answer, only one put up a notice that there were too many messages to reply to each of them
>>80349634idk senpai it's up to you, a portable lan build is cool but with hardware prices not sure how cheap you could get it, a mobile 2060 is about 20% less as good as a desktop 2060 so use that as a benchmark. having a built in screen if you really are going to be moving around a lot is very useful especially if it's 144hz, and it can still be used on a TV.
>>80349615I did, but I scalped my 3070 for double what I paid for to some miner and now I'm just waiting (TM) for 3080s
>>80349430Just checked prices, yeah, it's fucked. Personally, if I didn't have a gaming PC right now, I wouldn't spend money on building one. I have a work tablet with an atom CPU anyways, so I'd just play really old games on that one. I've even done that before. Pretty much every game made before 2005 and every 2D indy game I've tried so far runs fine on it. Same goes for any intel CPU with integrated graphics made after 2012. That, or get a PS4, for around $100, buy monster hunter world and sink a thousand hours into that one. Great game.
>>80348288I don't even know what kind my PSU is, but I know that my GPU only uses around 80 watts.The cable is 13a 250v, that's all I know
>>80350298Stupid chinks can't even add 120 or 144fps support.
Bros is it worth it to buy a 5500 XT 4GB to replace a 1050 2GB? Prices are way too high here ($4000 for a 6800 xt)
>>80350395if you plan to play at 1080p 60 only, yes
>>80350405Yeah I'm not planning on getting a 4K monitor anytime soon
>>80350319It's a mobile game that was ported to PC. You can be thankful they enabled 60fps mode.
>>80350486Nah it was clearly developed for PC first. Even the highest settings on the best smartphone are basicly low medium settings on pc
How important are Fins Per Inch with radiators?https://www.performance-pcs.com/water-cooling/radiators/aquacomputer-airplex-modularity-rad-system-480mm-alum-fins-one-circuit-stainless-side-panels-aq-33026.htmlThis has 13 FPI aluminum finshttps://www.newegg.com/p/37B-000B-002H6?Description=EK-CoolStream%20XE%20480&cm_re=EK-CoolStream_XE%20480-_-37B-000B-002H6-_-ProductThis has 16 FPI copper fins.
>>80350518You think the company that exclusively developed mobile games before this one developed for PC first?
>>80350640Higher fin density allows for better cooling but it requires more static pressure from the fans to actually move the air through it. Could very well be, if you noise normalize it, they'd cool about the same.
ok.. help me out a littlemy 3770 pc died and i was hoping to keep it until alder lakeshould i get 10400f with cheap mobo/ram then wait for alder lake or just get high end rocket lake and be done with it
>>80350640Higher FPI rads cool better if paired with very powerful (and noisy) high static pressure fans.More important though make sure not to mix metals in your loop.
>>80350736get a 5600x pleb
>>80350736Is it just the CPU that died or is the motherboard fucked too? If it's just the CPU, get a 2400 or 3470. You can probably get one for like $30 or even less. It's a step down in performance, but you can probably deal with it for less than a year.
>>80350736stop waiting retard.

Is that at 100% utilization? In that case it'd be PCIE+1 2x6/8 cable for meeting its needs.>13a 250vWait, is that the powersocket-to-PSU cable? If THAT'S the one that burned up then I suspect the PSU itself is fucked and should be replaced.
I JUST WANT A FUCKING COMPUTER WITH A GOOD GRAPHICS CARD IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?
>>80346867No such thing as a bad card; just a bad price. If the price is right, the Turing cards are solid. I got a great deal on an RTX 2070 brand new. It was when the Super cards were coming out and old stock was being moved.

How hard does BTC/ETH need to drop for mining to be not lucrative? I just need a new GPU friendshttps://pcpartpicker.com/list/h9GM68
>>80346640how viable is a raspberry pi for shitposting or playing games that dont require much in the way of perfoamance?
I need a motherboard + cpu + 8gb RAM combo for less than $100.Should I try ebay auctions?
>>80351094>How hard does BTC/ETH need to drop for mining to be not lucrative?Lucrative? Dunno. Profitable? Quite a bit.
>>80350964>>80350820Meh, after punching the parts in on PCPP that leaves the GPU at ~$925, ~$705 if you factor in the monitor which you probably don't need.>>80351094Even if it crashed ~60-75% whales with warehouses would still probably snap them up since even a day's mining could pay for a month's rent for the square footage rigs occupy.
>>80351167Seeing as you can't run Windows on it you'll be limited to very light indie games with Linux ports plus emulators. If that's your thing it's okay I guess. Personally I'd save up a bit and try for a used Optiplex with a cheap (lmao) graphics card jammed in.
>>80351355You are probably better up with something like craigslist or your countries equivalent to that.
>>80351349I would strongly suggest to save up more money. With the inception of the new console generation, the next couple of years will see a sharp rise in minimum and recommended specs for gaming. This has always been the case. Normies buy more consoles than gaming PCs hence consoles control the overall average specs. And what you get for $100 will be woefully outdated quickly.
>>80351349there's an i5-2500 in my shed you could have for free

>>80352539$1000 plus as soon as the Etherium mining BIOS hack gets dropped. Welcome to the new normal. It would be real fucking nice if another 4 years of Trump could even begin to fix our problems.
All I want is a 3070 for RRP. The cheapest available are $950 usd in my country.
>>80352539Zotac has had their price listed since this morning for $480 and $500
>>80352595For fucks sake... I was going to try and snipe one but I probably won't even bother
>>80352580The 10850k will be good for gaming, and decent for work™, for a good few years yet. Plus if you get a Z490 board you'll be able to upgrade to RefreshLake++++. It's kinda satisfying to see Intel squirm like this. It's been at least 10 years since they last dropped their prices like this.
>>80352641>The 10850k will be good for gaming, and decent for work™Oh, I thought it would be "decent" for gaming and "AMAZING" for work, since 10 cores...I edit vids, will it at least be "amazing" in comparison to the 4790k's 4 cores?
>>80352744Everything is relative. Yes, it will shit all over a 4790k, but it will look like garbage compared to a 5900x.
>>80352744I have an 8 core ryzen 2700 non-x and it still blows through rendering like no tomorrow.
>>80352744Yes. But a 5950x will blitz it at both tasks. Don't forget you gotta patch Intel because of their security risks which reduce performance.

>>80352787>asus b560 or the asrock?Asus. The PSU is fine. TXM is nice because of 80+ gold, but whether it's worth it depends on the price difference.

Is the GTX 3050 dream dead? Are Nvidia going to release non-RTX cards for this gen?
>>80352788that makes $2300 plus tip
>>80352844If they do, they will probably called GTX 26xx.
>>80352744I should have said "relatively" decent because it'll absolutely crush a 4790k at both. I only tempered my assessment of its workstation capabilities because, with AMD's advancements in chiplet design, 10 cores is going to be low-end for workstations in the coming years. Heck, in some sense it already is due to Threadripper. Obviously a different price class but that kind of tech trickles down. For hobbyist stuff it'll be plenty; >16 cores only really makes sense when you're making money off the machine.

i don't want to go team red, what's the intel equivalent of a 5600x?
So what are the best chances to get an RTX 3060 on launch day? Can humans even be fast enough to get one without a bot if not, what is the best bot to use?
>>80352844>3050might as well buy a 1070 or 1080
So with new games adding DLSS nearly daily now AMD will reduce the price of their 6000 GPUs right? Who would spend $800 for a 6800
>>80352998depends, the rival in it's price point is the 10700KF that costs the same/less and performs around the same and will have better multithreaded performance. however the 10600KF is the direct rival as a mid range gaming cpu, if you can even call the 5600x midrange.
>>80352761>>80352776>>80352779>>80352888As long as I will be blown away compared to my current cpu, I am happy!>it will look like garbage compared to a 5900x>a 5950x will blitz it at both tasksThat's fine, I am not a fan of AMD and those are way too expensive to justify buying, all I do is stream vidya, edit vids, and watch anime so I don't think I'd really be able to take advantage of their power. I also like my cpu to have an integrated gpu, just incase.Going to order this 10850k now!
>>80353024to know someone who knows someone working at a retailer who can reserve you a card
>>80353024Are you really going to spend $500+ for a 3060?
>>80353052People overthink this so hard. I would like to buy a 6c12t CPU. What are the most recent options from the two major manufacturers? There's your answer.
>>80353045>AMD will reduce the price of their 6000 GPUs right?No.
>>80353079$500 is only 25% markup bro, practically a steal.
>>80353024Even bots aren't fast enough.As has been stated before, you're more limited by your number of proxies than your software. Just being able to use a headless browser doesn't mean shit. The people actually getting cards are paying out the ass in proxies and sekrit klubs just for the chance of botting. And most of them still fail.
Why the fuck are these two different products?
>socket type: na
>>80353163why are 3700X and 3800X? Why are 3600X and 3600XT?
>>80353218Both valid questions.
Will a 500W PSU be enough for a R5 3600, 2070S, 16GB ram, a few case fans?Online calculator tells me taht even 450 would be enough because load would be 380.
>>80353246Should be fine. I would personally feel more comfortable with 550W, but if you already own the 500W, then sure.

Opinions on buying Rocket Lake vs waiting for Alder Lake?I don't have a GPU yet either but my old PC is really bad and a pain to work with at this point, not sure if I should just buy everything but the GPU in three weeks or wait all the way until the end of the year when Alder Lake comes out and GPUs are more common again
>tfw won the shuffle>5600x combo with a hunk of $50 plastic for $410 plus tipI can't even resell that for more than I bought it what the fuck
>>80353400i'm on a haswell and waiting for alder lake. I don't want to jump on DDR4 at the end of its life, plus you won't get raped on scalper prices
>>80353400on a budget = buy comet/rocket lake nowgot money to blow = wait for alder lake
>>80353053>I am not a fan of AMDStupidity alert
>>80348563Based. i7-3770K, Xeon E3-1231v3 and i7-4790K here. I bought the i7-4790K a few months ago. Grabbed an RX 5700 XT for 360€ too.
>>80353462Shouldn't it be the other way around?
>>80353400Rocket Lake sounds like it's going to be DOA in no small part because of Intel blowing their load about Alder Lake so early. Either go Zen 2/3 now or wait for Alder Lake.
>>80353339Glad I didn't listen to the justwaitfags back in November. Set my sights on a 3070 and ended up getting one. Took a lot of effort with using notifications and being quick, but I landed it and don't have to wait anymore. Good luck to all the waiters out there. I'm sure there will be stock at msrp any day now.
>>80353520>>80353449Rocket Lake has nearly a decade of refinement in its architecture leading up to it while Alder Lake will be completely new and most probably be plagued by all the issues the first cheaps of a new architecture always are. If you wait for Alder Lake you might as well wait until Gen13 or 14 in 2022.
>>80353400If the DDR4-5 transition is anything like the DDR3-4, or DDR2-3, or DDR-2, transition then you'll be waiting a lot longer than "until Alder Lake" for a reasonable upgrade. Unless you've got money to burn; in which case why not both? Don't get me wrong it's entirely possible for DDR5 to completely eclipse DDR4 in both performance and price upon release but it would be a stunning upset compared to previous DDR revisions.
Is a 500 GB SSD enough for modern video games?
>>80353507why? newer things are more expensive. so alder lake will be the 12th gen, and therefore newer than 10th or 11th gen
>>80353558If you only play 1 or 2, sure. If you like a bit of a harem then no.
>>80353558>modern video games(which i assume you mean big AAA titles like rdr2)maybe if you have 3 installed at a time max
>>80353558I quickly filled up a terabyte SSD. Spring for 1-2TB if you're upgrading
>>80353507no, AL system is going to be much more expensive, as well as mobos, as well as ddr5 ram, though most mobos will probably support ddr4 as well but those mobos might be even more expensive. of course the jump in performance will be nice but it will come at a hefty price.
>>80353558Triple-A shit has been bloating in filesize like crazy for the past five years, so if you want to play Red Dead 2 or cawadoody, no. Video game load times are barely ever long enough for an SSD to matter that much anyway.
>>80353558not really. especially if youre running an OS off that. 500gb translates to ~465gb because of clever jewish marketing. the OS is usually 50-70gb or even 120gb after longer use/ more updates and bloat get added. then a typical AAA games like Modern Warfare is more than 100gb. just go with 1tb if its your only drive.
>tfw 10850k from the US on sale is about the same versus a 5600x in Canada.I hate the retail environment here.
>>80353503I've been getting called stupid here for years since the day I bought a 4790k; you can't hurt me.
Any recommendations for a 2TB SSD mostly for media storage and maybe random games I don't care too much about?I'm still on an old Sand Vag build with HDDs and a tiny 125GB boot SSD and want to upgrade my entire PC the second I get my hands on a GPU, figured I might as well get a storage SSD now to make my last few weeks/months/years on this machine a little less painful and then just reuse it for my good build whenever that happens.Doesn't need to be the best of the best as I will get an NVME drive for everything important anyways.
Reminder to beware of Ryzen's garbage motherboards.
>>80353609Modern Warfare (2019) is hardly typical for filesize. It's important as a benchmark, and as a sign of things to come, but if you don't play it the next smallest game is like 25% smaller.
>>80353647Go for it if you have the money
>>80353648you arent fooling anyone
>>80353609>>80353558Also don't forget you need to leave ~10-15% of drive space open as a buffer because of the way SSDs work otherwise they die fast as fuck. Get a 250-500gb drive for OS and basic programs and then a separate 2tb drive for actual games and other things, that way you can make OS drive backups and quickly restore if it dies for whatever reason or not have to reinstall your OS and other things if the game drive dies.
>>80353449On the opposite, I would jump to the end of DDR4 rather than the start of DDR5. There will be many years until DDR5 is mature and fast(er than DDR4). Perhaps my mindset is fixed to an even playground for overclocking records, where there will not be any new CPUs or DRAM for that generation. That's why DDR3 is also still much fun (and adequately performant too).

Is a 3080ti still coming?
Any suggestions on a desk? I know cheap desks aren't good most of the time but I'm on a limited budget around ~200$
>>80353712What size/shape you looking for?
>>80353699they've jewed us again. ofc its been gimped, the card was too perfect.
>>80346893Used hard drives are fine if youre not planning to store any important data. Every build I do I use a used one for games. Most the time I only play a game for a few months MAX then I sorta just jump into it every once and a while. I dont really give a shit if the HDD dies. All my porn and movies go onto my NAS with new drives tho.
>>80353503>thinking AMD ever had your back.
>>80353712Go to an office supply/amazon and get a sturdy folding desk made for conferences.Tons of legroom and most of them are rock fucking solid and super high quality compared to the consumer targeted shit you can get for that money.
Is it worth paying $40 more for a MB that has WIFI 6 built in vs using a WIFI 4 card I already have? I'm not going to really see a difference if my speed is only 100mb up/d, right?
>>80350319In the beta it did. Just that certain stuff acted weird when fps cap was upped so they stuck it to 60.
>>80353746I bet that the 3080Ti will be the continuation of the crypto nerf Ampere cards. I wouldn't be surprised if the hash rate is nerfed by more than half so they can sell those CMPs.
>>80353647Since you're on a Z68-era board you're going to be limited to SATA storage. Usually one of the following models is the cheapest top-spec SATA SSD.>WD Blue>Crucial MX500>ADATA SU800>Team Group Vulcan>Samsung 860 EVOUltimately you're going to be bottlenecked by the transfer medium (SATA) since it's relatively easy to design a controller capable of hitting 550MBps sequential. Obviously you could use an add-in card to use NVMe on an old chipset but, from what I've heard, you may have problems booting and potentially stability issues if you do so. Better to, like you say, buy an NVMe drive for your OS when you upgrade the whole rig.
How much would the 3080Ti cost? It's not like they can dramatically increase the price for 2 GB of GDDR6X, right? 799 MSRP max?
>>80353795is that a touhou?
>>80353837If it starts at 1.5k$ that'd be a steal anon.
>>80353841yeah it's Suika Ibuki
>>80353647Get a Munchkin or CX or whatever the fuck is in the ~$150-160 range, just make sure it's got DRAM and isn't particularly shitty.>>80353795Depends on just what the card maxes out at vs what changes you might get in ISP speeds in the future: ours just doubled our speeds a week or two ago so if something starts breathing down yours' neck the same thing could happen.
>>80353795The $40 may be more on the motherboard than a WiFi addon. If you're happy with what you have and it's compatible, use it. I can see some of the conveniences of less add-on cards, however. You're the one to make that call for your use case (which is still yet to be explained), not the anons here.Your wireless access points also have to support the increased ac/ax bandwidth.
>>80352761Define garbage because in several tasks they are pretty comparable or the high price difference negates the performance gain of the 5900x.
>>80353895I never meant to imply that the 5900x is the better value product at current prices.
>>80353837lmaotheyre gonna milk you like a cow
Any benefit to running separate SSDs for OS and Games? If not, I'll stick with getting 1 SSD for both
>>80353746It seems like 20GB of GDDR6x or whatever was overkill
>>80353929If your OS becomes corrupted for some reason, all your games will still be there after you reinstall.
>>80353929probably no benefitthe OS shouldn't be doing a lot of read/write when you are playing gamesunless you have stuff on your C drive that you are streaming somewhere or copying somewhere, while you are trying to play the game at the same time
>>803538063080ti is basically going to be a test to see if Nvidia was actually serious with their statement or just trying to play lip service.
>>80353885>The $40 may be more on the motherboard than a WiFi addon.Pretty sure it's just the wifi desu. It's the MSI MPG Z490 GAMING PLUS $180 -vs.- MSI MPG Z490 GAMING EDGE WIFI $220.I don't have either, just a wifi 4 card I use with my old mb (pic related) and wondering which is worth getting.
>>80353929no only hyper autists insist on seperating them
>>80353837>MSRP meaninglessmy bet is $1,4k
>>80353795For the record, the IEEE 802.11ax standard (marketed as Wi-Fi 6 by the Wi-Fi Alliance) has not been published yet, despite the timeline mentioning "November 2020" earlier and now "February 2021".
>>80353970>450mbpsIn that case save the $40 because the way shit's going with internet speeds it's gonna' be a looooooong time before you start getting that at a reasonable rate.
Why don't you just give up and buy from a system integrator like Ibuypower who has 3090s on hand.
>>80353996>>80354007Okay that's good I get to save money thank you
How the fuck is crypto even allowed?
>>80354069why shouldn't it be allowed?
>>80354084It's extremely harmful in Satan knows how many ways, not least the home computing scene
>>80354021Because fuck them.
it's funny how this thread still looks forward to new graphics cards, asks about fantasy numbers like MSRPR and thinks about price cuts for AMD cards this is some advanced reality immunity
>>80354145Things can only go up from here.It won't get too much worse now.
>>80354145nigga everyone here believes their animu waifus are better than real women. what did you really think?
>>80354145The real reality immunity at play here is the attribution of value to fucking cryptocurrencies.
>>80354145why? they'll be in stock eventually, might as well talk about them so you know what to get once you have the chance
>>80354168Just wanted to dismiss you, but it seems like ethereum might've reached the bulltrap. We might see it shoot up again for the next couple of days, but investor confidence has definitely waned, so that will only be short term. Smart investors will sell soon.
>>80353715Preferably a rectangle with no less than 24 inches in depth but can be deeper. The width can be between 50 and 60 inches as that's all the space I can spare atm. I'm not too confident in Amazon's desks but had one before that held up well enough
>>80354145This. Even if they fixed the silicon shortage and mining stopped being profitable tomorrow, prices will take months to normalize again.
>>803543532021 will just be a bad year for hardware. Nothing anyone can do about. I just hope my RX 570 doesn't decide to die on me.
>>80353934that was primo future proof for at least a few generations

can someone give me a quick rundown on PSUs? it used to be "stick with the big guys, Corsair, Seasonic (best), EVGA; avoid Thermaltake, coolermaster, and never get one with a case" but now it seems like some of the GOOD brands can't be trusted and shitty brands are being recommended. also, I don't remember there being this many Bronze on the market, you either got the 80+ barely complies or 80+ gold.I don't care for RGB, I don't care for modular, I'm looking for 500-600w.
>>80354476The reality is that almost every company has good and bad units. Corsair's VS series is atrocious, for example.
>>80354512so it's always just a crapshoot now?we'll, I guess I'm buying this rosewill, wish me luck
RTX 3060 are now up in some stores and start at fucking 500 bucks.
>>80354601>so it's always just a crapshoot now?If you do no research, sure. It's like buying a graphics card without knowing anything about it. LTT's PSU tierlist is old and missing a lot, but it's good enough for getting some recommendations. >nowIt's like this since 2009 or so. People are way too hung up on brands because they're generally too lazy to look into stuff.
>>80354668Up as in for sale or just the price? Because none should be for sale yet.
>>80354668my microcenter had a few on the shelf, they're scanning IDs are limiting them to 1 a month per person
>>80353906awww shit I fucked up.
>>80354716that was in regards to graphic cards, btw, not the 3060 in particular
>seasonicreliable but every unit I had suffered from coil whine to some degree>corsairshitty fans. if you can live with that, the rmx units are breddy gudi personally use and like pic related. reliable and the company name isn't even a meme
>>80354773I'm currently running an OCZ from 2009, it's very quiet, but I'm building a new rig and figured now is as good a time as any to get a new power supply, especially since I don't want this one crapping out and fucking my new components.
>>80354715Prices, at least for the MSI cards here in Krautland.500 for Ventus, 600 for gaming x, 650 for gaming x trio.
>>80354728It's okay friend.
>>80354773I still have my Corsair TX550M, but the original had horrible high pitch noise when it was under slight load and around 30 minutes after the load ends.I just opened it up and switch the fan with a 120mm noctua and now it's silent even under heavy load.
would you pay 660€ (about 800USD) for a 3060ti?
>>80354866not if I wasn't a miner
>>80354835that's Corsair for you. I never personally owned because whenever I build PCs for people and they use a Corsair PSU it comes with some fan issues >>80354866350€ max. I don't care how unrealistic it is
>>80346640>RECOMMENDED RAM>3200/3600MHzhow big of a difference are these two speeds really? I see 3200 32gp for $144 vs 3600 32gb for $184
>>80354952About 2%, which is probably about the same percentage as the price difference in the context of the whole system. Tends to stand out much more on Ryzen CPUs though.
>>80354952Not that large. The difference is only measurable when your system is CPU bound. It also depends on what your CAS latency is as well.
>>80354815>$500 for 2x ventus house fire editionsad these will sell
>>80346999what video is this from?
>>80353970I have that same wifi card but i dont use it because i have wired connection at homeit gets 5 bands somehow even without antennas installed

With the exception of EVGA and PNY(lol who?) every nvidia AIB is a chink company. What gives? Where are all the European and Japanese and Korean board partners?
>>80354972>>80354978So it's not worth it if I'm using an intel cpu? I don't mind paying extra but if there's realistically no difference then I'd rather put $40 elsewhere like another storage device.I don't know if my system is "cpu bound" but it'll be a 10850k with a 3070.

R8 my build
I don’t know anything about cpu AIO since I’ve been on air forever but my 5900x gets hot under load + gpu heating it up more.I got a 240mm AIO for it and I don’t know if push pull fans would improve it? I removed the stock fans with a pair noctua pressure fans not sure if adding the stock fans on top would improve the performance? Pic related
I finished my new build last night and am having some cpu issues. I have a 5800x being cooled by an nzxt x73 and it heats up to like 60 - 70 celsius for bullshit like navigating windows and opening new tabs in firefox. right now I'm downloading a game in steam and it's sitting steady at 63 degrees according to hwmonitor.I also just finished reseating the cooler and applying new thermal paste and no change. what's the fucking deal with this shit?
>>80355550did you remove the tape on the heatsink? are the fans spinning?
>>80355550the 5800x just likes it hot. there are people who's CPU goes up to like 90°c under load with good cooling
>>80355569yes and yes. case fans and cpu fans are spinning loud as fuck when it heats up which is one of the most annoying parts.
>>803555505800x is the garbage silicon they bin when they get a bad 5900x or 5950x (which is most of the time because yields are comical)as such it is a housefire, which is why nobody actually wants it
Brand new 2080 Super for 800 bucks worth it right now?
>>80355596>>80355601that's fine but it still gets too hot for simple tasks like that. ramping up to 60-70 c shouldn't happen when navigating windows. it's not like I'm running any cpu intensive programs in the background either.
>>80355601it's the only zen 3 CPU you can actually buy for MSRP herelet's hope for a 5700g someday
>>80355607>buying literally anything this inflatedUnless you are actively making money with a GPU purchase nothing is worth it
>>80355630you did it to yourself buddy, even the worst amd fanboys aren't buying that garbage
>>80355646Isn't it pretty close to MSPR?
>>80355503I'd try the push pull with the extra fans, also try switching the back fan orientation to get more fresh air into the system, since you'll have a strong exhaust anyway with the four rad fans.>>80355550Does your system and the rad get enough ventilation?
>>80355659honestly I wanted a 5600x but got sick of waiting after a few weeks of trying to get one. I understand it's not the best bang for the buck but memes aside something is fucked up here.>>80355667yep, definitely nothing blocking the fans or the rad. six intake fans, three exhaust fans. the tubes are both warm after running for a while so I don't think there's any kind of blockage.
>>80355715>honestly I wanted a 5600x but got sick of waiting after a few weeks of trying to get onewhere are you located?

>>80355934are they even producing 3000 series anymore?
>>80355596>>80355630>>80355659thee 5800x just has voltage settings that aren't really optimized. Motherboards also do ave the issue of often putting too much power or voltage to a CPU which make it eat up more and less efficient.
>>80346893You retard. Testing the drives with badblocks and smartctl is fine and will let you save money
