First for POOZEN
I spent weeks researching watercooling in depth, all the best manufacturers, tubing choices, fan controllers, specific cases, fittings, loop planning, different pumps...I'm just going to get a new case and go full air cooling and even ditch my current AIO. Fuck liquid. Fuck radiators. Metal will never betray you, don't let the water jew tempt you like it tempted me.
What's a good storage drive? Been a while since I replaced mine and want something that will last a while again.
>>83816123Honestly I would love that GPU for my Velka 3. Too bad those sized GPUs are akin to unicorns though.
>>83816194Consumer HDDs are in a race to the bottom. If you want your data to be secure you need to use redundancy. Alternatively, if you just want a pack mule for films, television, and Gurren Lagann fanfiction, then the Barracuda 2TB is usually a good choice.
the new RX 6600 is the most efficient cryptomining card released yet.> Currently, we found leaks stating that RX 6600 performes in the similar range as its older brother RX 6600 XT, which is at around 30 MH/s with power draw of around 50W. If this proves to be true, the efficiency of RX 6600 will be the highest of a consumer GPU at 0.6 MH/JI snagged 6 preorders already with my bots so I am pretty excited
>>83816123I got my 3080 I ordered over a year ago.
Hello gamers..I have a chance to buy a 5800x from a seller and hes willing to take my 3700x with money on top...Is it worth it? Do you see a major performance bump at 1440p 144hz? Using a 3070..
>>838163043700x with how much money on top?
>>83816298never too late anon
>>83816314hes selling it for 350, i would give him my 3700x and 150 on top. the 5800x has only been used for 3 days and hes selling bc he got an R9
>>83816298cool at least you will have it for a few months before RTX 4000.Sad thing is that the card you ordered a year ago wasn’t LHR and what you received most definitely will be
>>83816332sounds jewish to me
>>83816189You get perfectly good temps with mid range air cooling, lower temps are completely useless
>>83816345Im not a shitcoin fag, so why would i care
Installed new GPU + PSU, computer doesnt work anymore, stuck on Dell logoPC: Dell XPS 8700GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6600PSU: PowerSpec 500W Switching power supplyJust bought a GPU and PSU today, installed both of them onto my PC. When I turn the PC on, the fan in the power supply and my motherboard start spinning. GPU fan also spins. However, then my monitor only shows the Dell logo. I tried pressing F12, F8, and F2 separately but nothing happens.And the monitor doesn't display anything when I have my HDMI plugged into the GPU, it only displays the stuck Dell screen when I have the HDMI plugged into my computer's non-GPU HDMI port.How the fuck can I make my PC work again and go back to gaming? I just wanted to upgrade my GPU. Any help will be SUPER appreciated. Thank you.
>>83816356because it is a less valuable component since it has had its hardware gimped
>>83816400i dont mine shitcoin, im not a tranny like you
>>83816378You plugged the 8pin power connector in right?
Idk which is the appropriate place to ask this question, but since it's hardware related I'll try ask here:If my monitor is 75Hz, do I set the ingame refresh rate to 75 or 60 if I capped the game's fps to 60?
>>83816264>Alternatively, if you just want a pack mule for films, television, and Gurren Lagann fanfiction, then the Barracuda 2TB is usually a good choice.bingo. Well mostly roms and isos but same idea. Thanks.Was really hoping drives were in a better spot but guess not.
>>83816426I plugged in the 4 pin on my motherboard to the 4+4 on my external PSU. Motherboard is 4 pin instead of 8.
>>83816450Maybe upgrade the rest of your dogshit PC
>>83816450Post pics of the inside of your PC brainlet
>>83816411you may not be a tranny but you seem to let them live rent free in your mind.Btw gaymers are the real tranny feminists. Enjoy you pozzed Cawladooty and Battlefield Rehashes on your crippled GPU
>>83816479>>83816465>>838164581/2 this is a picture of the inside, the external PSU is set up on the bottom right so that's where the wires are coming from
>>83816479>>83816465>>83816458This is the 4-pin connector from my PSU to my motherboard.>>83816465Not an option
>>83816442Honestly I don't think HDDs today are any less reliable than they were 10 years ago. The trouble is that they're so reliable that individual failures are basically background noise/ More importantly, long-term studies, a la Backblaze, aren't being done on consumer capacity HDDs any more so we're in the dark for hard data. That's why I advocate redundancy. Nobody can say for certain that drive X is more reliable than drive Y. On the other hand there's no widespread reports of specific drives failing so we can tell that the current crop at least meets basic durability standards. 2X, however, is certainly more reliable than X or Y.
>>83816567>>83816530Don't use cables that aren't for pci-e just because they have the same amount of pins.What the fuck is going on here, this is above /g/'s paygrade. We don't do this broke as shit here.
>>83816587the problem is SMR makes drives work 5x harder to read and write which is why they have shorter warranties
>>83816646you are talking about gaymers here. The lowest and most gullible gaggle of retards in tech
>>83816646I've attached the designated PCI-e cable to the GPU.
>>83816669Writing is more costly on SMR (assuming the drive has been filled somewhat beforehand) but reading is the same as on CMR. Thus they are well-suited to WORM type storage use when redundancy isn't worth it. Frankly, this is the last remaining use for traditional (non-redundant) consumer HDDs so it makes sense that they're all moving to SMR.
>>83816264>Barracuda 2TBThat better then a WD blue? Also anything a little bigger?
whats the best drives for mining chia?
redpill me on the 5950x
>>83816920>That better then a WD blue?About the same. Both are SMR (at 2TB - the 1, 3, and 4TB Blues are CMR). We don't have long-term reliability data for either. Buy whichever is cheaper.>Also anything a little bigger?Plenty. As I insisted they're all still a lottery. If you want reliability, go redundant. If you want cheap, sort by lowest price.
>>83816964good but going to be obsoleted by v-cache
>>83816964not really worth the $200 premium over the 5900x unless you really actually do professional work
Would a 1050 ti work fine with a 5600X or should I just get a 5600G and a good GPU later?
I fell for the amd meme with the phenom vs 2600k gag. I won't fall for it again. games are made for intel. I'm not some dottering retard however, so I'd appreciate you changing my mind if you can
>>83817270AMD was never said to be widely competitive in that era. What literature were you reading to believe that
>>838172832010 budget pc infographs and threads from /g/
so I got my hands on 10 3060 Tis. How do I build a mining rig out of it?
>>83817297I have already notified the Parisian authorities. Remain where you are.
>>83817294>budgetwell yeah, if you're going to be a cheap fuck expect substandard results. Does AMD look cheap to you right now lmao?
>>83817305I don't want to hitch a bet on the loser's side just because a fluke briefly won them some respect. Wisdom tells me they got a lucky tech breakthrough that won't last due to marketshare differences, market hedging, price manipulation and greater tech innovation coming from intel soon. As in things are going back to the way they were before this recent amd stuff; that amd is the clear worst choice for games. That I would be locked into a substandard ecosystem that has a minimal lifespan compared to Intel.captcha: drntr
tomorrow a lot of us will try and fail again at getting a gpu from the amd website. i would like to wish good luck to all the triers/criers
>>83817297get a motherboard with 6 PCIE slotsA cpu that can handle the PCIe lanes8gb of RAM6 pcie mining risersA PSU capable of powering it alla flashdrive with NiceHash OS
>>83817383>NiceHash OS>not hiveosother advice is sound though
>>83817357AMD has been dominant since the Ryzen series.Now there is currently no reason to rush into an AMD machine if you can wait a month. Alder Lake numbers will be released first week of November I believe. At that point you can make your decision.
>>83816123>1080p: RTX 3060, RX 6600 XTYou had one job OP, one job. Your picture is even the 6600 non-XT
>>83816345>RTX 4000In a year at the earliest.
>>83817453>6600 non-XTminer's card, shit otherwise
>>83817425i was trying to be n00b friendly
I want to build a pc but I don't want to pay 700 euros for a 3060I'm unironically going to buy a laptopfucking jews
So 5800x or 5600x? Mostly gaming but also with multiple monitors and like 30 tabs of firefox/discord open? Also to survive until like the second or third generation of ddr5.Microcenter prices is $100 apart between them.
>>838175525600x is great but $100 isn't that much in the scope of 3 years, I'd go with 5800x.
>>838175525600x if you game5800x if you game and do professional workloads5600x is going to be all 99% of the world needs for awhile
>>83817507enjoy your low TDP CPU and GTX 1650 level of performance. Retard.Why dont you desperate gaymen just buy a PS5 and get it over with?
>>83817564Does the 5800x under perform compared to the 5600x in any way? Like its higher single core clock rate as well right?>>83817568>5600x is going to be all 99% of the world needs for awhileWhy I'm still leaning towards it even if I don't really have a budget.
>>83817582>5800x under perform compared to the 5600xNo, in the absolute worst case scenario (case with terrible airflow, stock cooler, high-end GPU heating the case, bad VRMs) they would be matched in single core perf with the 5800x still pulling ahead in multi core workloads. In more realistic scenarios the 5800x will pull ahead by a little even in single core.
>>83817610Dang. Looking for a reason not to go for it. Well I guess not wanting to pay more for a bigger cooler but I already normally over provision in that regard.
Thought I'd ask you guys for some advice. My graphics card has been shitting the bed for the last 3 weeks and causing my computer to crash. Thought it was the c: drive but after hooking up an older card of mine it's definitely the GPU.Up to date drivers everywhere. Healthy c: drive,Win10 is up to date, plenty of wattage, no heat, yet it just up and dies even if I leave and come back just to move the mouse an inch.
>>83817792try doing a complete fresh driver install for the graphics drivers, I heard updating the driver on top of older versions may cause issues
>>83817792Also, that case isnt doing you any favors either, it absolutely chokes gpus
is this shit worth it? fuck the jews
>>83817829no, just waitor buy 2nd hand gpu
>>83817849wait until when, 2025?
>>83817859buy xbox with gamepassu then when you get a reasonable gpu you can donate it to your niece
>>83817582>Does the 5800x under perform compared to the 5600x in any way? Like its higher single core clock rate as well right?No. AMD doesn’t make 6 core silicon. They make 8 core silicon and disable 2 cores. The 5600X are 5800X dies with flaws. Cutting it down to 6 cores is a way to save wasted silicon
>>83817978>Cutting it down to 6 cores is a way to save wasted siliconwtf is this true?
>>83817859no, probably not. i would bet any amount of money that 1 year from now the gpu holocaust will be over.i'd also bet good amounts on 9 and 6 months...basically you're waiting for the crypto bubble to pop or ETH to go POS. the crypto bubble has been going on since the start of the year, a bit more perhaps. ETH going POS is scheduled for Q1 '22.
I'm going to buy a 5800x tell me why I shouldnt
>>83818073it's not an optimal purchase. if you want it for gaming, an 11400 will be much cheaper, a 5600x will also be cheaper but not as much. both will perform more or less the same as a 5800x in a reasonable gpu constrained situation(so, not on 1080p with a 3090)if you want it for productivity/multicore perf, go 5900x, its much faster, obviously.
>>83817805Just uninstalled my older drivers, hit it with an install and factory reset in Radeon through Safe Mode. I'll report back if else should happen, but if I don't: Thanks for the help bro>>83817821My first build with that gpu was contained in a Node 202 case lol, wouldn't be the worse it had to deal with currently.
>>83818094What if im getting the 5800x for $360im going to use it for games, vm's, and maybe gpu passthrough/looking glass
>>83818166or you could get an 11600k/11400 and use the extra $100 on a sweet new monitor or like buy some cocaine
i have a rtx 3090, what cpu do i pair it with? haven't kept up with any news at all, don't know if I should pick amd over intelserious answers only please
>>83818166if you want to play with VMs, i'd advise stepping up to the 5900x. you can give one ccx to the vm and another to the host os.also, do the math on $/core. you will find that both the 5600x and the 5900x are cheaper per core. at least, that's how it is for me.
>>83818166look you have already made up your mind to piss your money away frivolously. Like the old saying about a fool and their money.You are buying the worst value CPU during the worst possible time. Mere weeks before a whole new Pc architecture drops.
>>83818202wait for alder lake and spend $1200 on a 12900k and $500 on a z690 motherboard
>>83818202what cpu do u have now? if its anything even remotely recent, i would advise you wait until the alder lake launch. in all likelihood, alderlake + 3090 will be the top of the line build until amd releases zen4. and if intel drops the ball, you can just go 5900x or wait for the 3d cache zen3+ chips to drop in q1 '22
Hi /g/What’s the best build for a Jew? I am going to use some of my Bar Mitzvah cash to build a PC. What can I get for $8000?
Is a 2600 good enough for 1080p gaming? I could get a 10th gen i3 for the same price. Then the 3600 and i5 are like 100% pricier.
>>83818255shop around for pre builts but personally i wouldnt spend more than 5k
>>83818255Go buy a prebuilt from B&H
>>83818267see if you can find a 3300X in your price range. They are really good
>>83818267>Is a 2600 good enough for 1080p gaming?yea, probably, but its noticably worse than more recent stuff.>I could get a 10th gen i3 for the same pricethat would probably win in gaming workloads (but lose on multicore perf)>Then the 3600 and i5 are like 100% pricier.wtf? that shouldn't be the caseimo the optimal strategy if you are broke is to wait for alder lake and when it drops, buy a 11400. its better for gaming than the 2600 or 3600 and close enough to the 5600x to not be noticeable.
>>83818325I'm dumb and just noticed the 10400f is much much cheaper than the non-f version.is that close to the 5600x in gaming performance? idk why AMD cpus are so fucking overpriced. at least with Intel's you get the "it has integrated graphics" excuse to justify a 50% increase.
>>83818255make sure you get intel
>>83818339>is that close to the 5600x in gaming performance?in a realistic scenario you will be gpu constrained, so yea, it will be close.if you benchmark it at 1080p with a 3090, you will see a measurable difference. imo the 11400 is the current budget gaming sweetspot, the 10400 should be pretty close in perf. but then again, they should be close in price too, so go 11400 if you can.
I feel like this not a great value for a 6600 thoughts? Already have a 3070, 20 mins left
>>83818396I wouldn't unless you're gonna try to scalp it
>>83818396>warranty & servicesLMAO
>>83818426A friend wanted to see with that price when he asked but yes I took it off already since he said no
>>83818396it’s a great crypto card. Just mine with it. Or dont buy it and maybe Newegg will offer it to me
>>83817453op here, at worst i forgot to put the release in the news part. it's too early to put it in one of those tiers, not to mention it's apparently a very underperforming card even for its price
My GForce 760 died, anything on par with it that I can substitute in the meantime, or is a budget of $250 just peanuts now a days?
>>83818536my 1050 2gb can run Rise smoothlyMy ti died but thankfully I always buy 2 cards during BF. Sucks that the ti I got years ago was the last one in Best Buy. It was less than 200 for both cards so it's current price blows my mind.
>>838185361050 ti?https://www.ebay.com/itm/274760831827?epid=28031984310&hash=item3ff9059353:g:R9wAAOSwJuBg812d can prob find cheaper used
https://it.pcpartpicker.com/list/WDzc2VIs this an acceptable build?I already have storage and a GPU lying around so I just need to get everything elseBudget is around the range you see and I'm a yuropoor
>>83818572>https://it.pcpartpicker.com/list/WDzc2Vwhy 5600G?do 5600x for like $13 more
>>83818572>https://it.pcpartpicker.com/list/WDzc2Vthe 5600g is an APU, you don't need integrated graphics if you have an actual GPU.so change it to a 11400f if you want to save moneyyou will also have to change the mobo to a b560get some better ram if possible, 3600mhz cl16get a better case, wtf is that chinkshit, recommend the phanteks p500a digital (the one that comes with 3 fans)get a better psu, wtf is that chinkshit, evga/corsair/seasonic 650w gold ratedif you buy cheap chinkshit parts they will fail and you will end up spending more in the long run
>>83818585Sorry anon I meant to put a 5600X there, you're right
do you expect the last AM4 refresh to give us better temps?
>>83818560>>83818565THIS WILL WORK, BLESS.
>>83818012It's very common, with this new ultra small nm size of shit fabricators fuck up a bunch more
>>83818438>>83818417Well it gets here in a week so I guess I'll figure out which of these I want to do
>>83818653why do you care lmao
Good cooler for 5800x? So use to just slapping nh-d14/15 on things but not sure if it needs that.
>>83818585>>83818609https://it.pcpartpicker.com/list/fxbg2VIs this better now?Thank you for helping me anons I appreciate it
>>83818653my 5900X runs hotter than my 3900X so I doubt it.
>>83818786high dolla case, can find better if tryin to budgetur call
>>83818773"need" is a relative albiest garbage trap chads use these
I want my gf to play Valorant with me.>2500K ($40)>GT 1030 ($66)>Some cheapo Z77 or H61 board ($50)>can give her 4GB of DDR3 RAM from my old build>some cheapo PSU 450W ($50)>could probably repurpose her old PC case for the build>give her my G400s mouse>need to buy a good keyboard, probably a used G710+ >could use her 32" TV to playShe has never played games in her life other than Claw, Road Rash and the like and uses a laptop that has a garbage first gen intel i3 340M and runs slows as molasses.I'm at an impasse. I can't afford top-end hardware, but this seems to be great for someone who mostly uses the PC for work and general use rather than a full on game machine. My other idea was an Athlon 3000G build, but it runs like shit for Valorant.What do?
>>83818773picrel is literally all you *need* and it is a fuckin shame that AMD no longer includes it.
>>83818786>https://it.pcpartpicker.com/list/fxbg2Vyea, much better. maybe spend a little more on the moboalso wtf that case price, i was recommending it at 100-120euro, fuck that $250have a look at gamersnexus on youtube, he has some very comprehensive case reviews. every review includes comparative graphs for temps, so watch the latest one and bring a notepadhe also makes "best of" vids with recommendations, but i think the last one was a few months ago, still, probably a good idea to check it out.ideally you want something in the 70-100euro range, mesh front, comes with 2 front + 1 back fans (getting your fans with the case is a v. good way to save money)
A couple months ago I was planning on upgrading to a 3600x or 3600 from my ryzen 5 1600 since that's what was recommended at the time.Now I see this newer 5600x chip being recommended instead and for a similar price. So is there no more reason to even look at the 3600 series anymore?Since I'm also looking at mobos I was going to wait for holiday sales in the hopes I can save something with prices being what they are right now.
>>83818786samefag as >>83818924check out the be quiet 500dx, comes with 3 fans (move the top fan to the front), its 90 euro for me
>>83818965>So is there no more reason to even look at the 3600 series anymore?its not worth the $50 you save. If you already have a 3600 or can get one for less than $100 then maybe worth it. But if you are going to spend $220 then why not just spend $250-270 and get the best?A few months ago the reason to buy a 3609 was because the 5600X was as scarce as a GPU.
>>83818965wait for alder lake, it may be a good buy or not, but will almost certainly drop prices on whats available nowcurrently the budget gaming sweetspot is the 11400. cheaper than the 5600x, pretty much same perf in realistic gaming situations.so that would be my plan, wait for alder lake, if its epic buy it, else buy cheaper 11400
>>83816488You seem poor
>>83818982Sounds like he attained enlightenment to me. Waterfags are retards. It’s aircooling with extra steps. Like driving an EV powered by coal or LNG generation
>>83818907Your gf would rather do ANYTHING besides play Valorant with you
>>83819006Water cooler more effectively than air. You seem like a brainlet who doesn't understand heat transfer
>>83818907use the money for a new gf that actually plays games
Should I do it /g/? I really really want to. What would you change? Keep it under $350 USD.
>>83819037Nope. You are literally adding additional levels of power consumption to get ~2c cooler temps. You are the brainlet who doesn’t understand
>>83818983Thanks a bunch.>>83818988Well I'm waiting for holiday prices and I want this upgrade done preferably before the year ends. If they announce that thing next month then it should line up nicely.And thank you also for the rec. I tend to stick to amd CPUs but I really shouldnt try to ignore good intel options either.
>>83818907break up with the gf.use the money you saved to upgrade your own pc and play 4k/144hz valorant with raytracing on an OLED!fuck bitches, get money
>>83819068its a fine upgrade, but i have 2 objections1) spend just a tiny bit more to go 11400/b560. should be ~$50 more2) wait for alder lake, it might be worth buying. if not, it will drop prices on current chips. only a few weeks away
>>83818907kill your gf
>>83819074More like 7 or 8 degrees C, faggot. Remember that C is way more significant than Fahrenheit.Power draw doesn't matter to me because I'm not poor and can buy a good power supply and pay an electric bill.Hang yourself
>>83818907sell your gf and buy an upgrade
>>83818840>>83818924>>83818969https://it.pcpartpicker.com/list/fxThW3I think this should be it, right?
>>83819266yup, thats the one
>>83817552you can get a 5800k for $360 on the antonline ebay store
>>83819292Thanks again for all of the help anon, I'll see to it asapIn the meantime I'll check the channel you recommended and see if anything inspires me, so thank you for that too
>>83819326I fat fingered the x
>>83819346enjoy that shit fren

My RX480 was $370 ($390 after inflation), so I was hoping that I could get a 6600 to hold me over until the 7000 series but nope. What are we supposed to do if our GPUs die?

I had no idea I would be this excited. I just bought all the parts I need to upgrade my 2010 computer. Only 1k. Only things I didn't buy were GPU and storage devices. I'll wait to see if times become less retarded in the GPU market before I upgrade. a 1060ti is good enough for what I do, but it is fairly low powered and I would like to upgrade it within the next.I also have the 144 1080p 24.5" anti-ghosting BenQ monitor coming. This is upgrading from a shitty 5ms 1080p I found for less than a hundred dollars in Best Buy around 2011.
>>83819719>a 1060ti is good enough for what I do, but it is fairly low powered and I would like to upgrade it within the next.within the next few years.
>>83819719>I had no idea I would be this excitedthats called dopamine, anonwomen and faggots get it from shopping and from “likes” and “upvotes”It’s the same feeling one gets from actual achievement. But in the end it it is nothing more than consuming.

Yeah so i'm going to buy a GPU at some point after ChristmasWill the rtx 3070 still be 850-1000€ and unobtainium in, say, march?It's not bc of budget concerns per se but this is retarded. I have a feeling it may get even worse though

>>838198672bh your obsession with trannies says everything we need to know about you.
how's the GTX 1660? I picked up the last prebuilt they had at Costco for $1K and it has this card.Is this best I can hope for without getting anally rekt or waiting for months before I can actually put together a decent PC?
>>83819861>it may get even worse thoughmaybe, if ETH hits new all time highs before POS is announced with a concrete date>Will the rtx 3070 still be 850-1000€ and unobtainium in, say, march?completely depends on when ETH goes POS and/or when the crypto bubble pops. whichever happens first will cause the gpu flood on ebay and the retail prices to collapsethe bubble popping is completely unpredictable, crypto has no real fundamentals to allow you any forecasting. ETH is scheduled to go POS sometime in Q1 '22. delays are possible. but at the same time the announcement of a certain date for a merge will also have a big effectso yea, who knows1 year from now it will be over for sure9 months, very very likely6 months, pretty decent chancesearlier than that, its impossible to say
>>83819882we aren't obsessed with trannies. lots of people dislike them because they are mentally ill people who prove to be huge annoyances no matter where they are or what they are doing. They have bad opinions because they are mentally ill. I personally attack all tranny material on 4chan simply to help gatekeep. I want you and other undesirables to be uncomfortable. It isn't obsession, it takes almost no time to do and it is mildly funny to me, meanwhile it might sometimes do some good by keeping at least a few of the trash out.It's only practical.
>>83819890its better than the 1050ti
>>83819906sounds like a cope to me.Totally and completely obsessedYou are either scared that you will become a tranny. Or you have already started wearing your mother’s things and despise yourself for it

>https://www.pcgamer.com/amd-confirms-ryzen-cpu-refresh-with-3d-v-cache-early-in-2022/>This refresh will make use of AMD's 3D chiplet technology, specifically 3D V-Cache, to bolster the amount of cache on the chips. >Dr. Lisa Su promised "we'll be ready to start production on our highest-end products with 3D chiplets by the end of this year.">Highest-endSo this probably means the ryzen 6600 most likely won't have v-cache? It's a mid-range chip.
>>83819719>upgrading 2010 PCsounds like a bad idea, everything got better since then, you'll need to replace all parts
>>83819968LHR is just marketing to offset the negative press from gamers.if nvidia meant it those cards would not mine at all, not mine at 50% (recently up to 70% with specific miners)anyway, listen, it doesn't matter so much. assuming you're a functional adult with a job, spending a few hundred shekels extra is not the end of the world.if you can wait, do so. if not, well, rip your wallet i guess

Made a shit ton of money from Shiba Coin, well not a shit ton of money, lets just say enough to not care about scalper prices for GPUs on eBay.I bought a MSI RTX 3070 Ti Gaming X Trio for $1250 shipped. I did a ton of research and I read this has basically the best heatsink and fans. Could I have gotten better pricing? its $999 MSRP at Best Buy(lol). Should I pair this with a 5600x or 5800x?
>>83820021i built mine for 3k 5900x + 6900xt tho
>>83819861There should be a new gen by that time. The 3000 series is already a year old and there's usually a new gen every 1.5 years (roughly march 2022)
>>83820037I'd advise the 5800x, consoles have 8 cores 16 threads now and games are going to be made with that in mind.
>>83819994>assuming you're a functional adult with a jobI am, it's just that I'm irritated by the current pricesI was going to wait till after Christmas anyway so whatever.Let's just hope for the best.
I know fuck all about computer building. I genuinely only intend to play in 1080p 144hz, and will essentially only be fucking about in Black Desert Online & Path of Exile. Is the exorbitant price of a 3080 worth it for that? Or would AMD shit be better than RTX?
>>83820021Get the 3080ti but not the 3090.>march/aprillogically speaking should be the best time to upgrade the CPU, and maybe GPU because of Intel launch?
>>83820054Huh. That could drop prices indeed. Thanks for pointing that out
>>83819999>Ryzen 5600What do you think the refresh will be genius
>>83820091>Is the exorbitant price of a 3080 worth it for that?no, definitely notthe 3080 will do anything in 1440p, will do pretty well in 4k too.look at the 3060tias for amd, they are overpriced compared to the already overpriced nvidia cards, imo ignore them (unless you can get them at msrp from amd.com)
>>83820110don't listen to the dumb illiterate uninformed tourist nigger, nvidia and amd already confirmed the new GPU gens are coming at the end of 2022.
>>83819980Probably not. They've the option of refreshing and discounting the current lineup as the lower tier products while the vcache parts are sold as the new halo products
>>83820101I'm getting the totality of the computer in March/April of 2022 with the aforementioned neetbux. Will a 3080ti even fit in a 3.5k budget? Will this meme shit end by then?

how do i get over my fear of buying used components? i feel like it's not merited since i've never had something used die on me but my reasoning is 1. no warranty 2. theres no way to know if they were straining the hardware (e.g. shitty thermals, a shitty OC)

>>83821336I bought a used old gen cpu (bulldozer) and it came with some crashes. you might face problems. I wouldn't buy a used CPU or PSU, I would be wary of GPUs unless they were new lower end models like 1060; because that makes them more likely an upgrade loss cut than a problem being shifted on to you. There is also no reason to buy used storage devices since prices are so cheap, that's simply a risk that isn't worth the gain. Therefore cases, monitors, cables, some GPUs, coolers, fans, and motherboards are decent to buy used. Note that motherboards are very complicated and can be severely damaged by electrical problems without obvious signs while in use, but as long as it's a generally expensive motherboard and is one that is about one socket generation behind, and you can see that there are no burn marks on the pcb, it is likely a loss cut.if you are smart, you can get any of these parts while minimizing risk. but literally just wait a month and save up more money or suck mommies clitty for a little more savings and buy new.

Is a 3060 non-ti worth it for $500? Will it bottleneck significantly on a 2600 at 1080p?
Why is G.Skill so economical?
>>83822313>big on emulation
Should I feel stupid about buying a 1080p, 144Hz monitor in late 2021?I'm on a laptop with a 5600m, so I don't think I could run 1440p. And I doubt I'll be getting new hardware any time soon.And 1080p looks bad on a 1440p display?If I were to get a 1080p, is 27" too big?Maybe I could get a 4k/60 and use integer scaling in big games, and native res in older/indie titles? Dunno what to do. Thought monitors would be dead cheap by now.
>>83822232ey, i tried to get whatever the cheapest GPU was just to display things and play super low end games with in the meantime and everyone told me to get a GT 710 which was 43 bucks
