What determines for how long turbo/boost clock maintains on ryzen 5? Also my 3600 barelly maintains 4Ghz on all cores - is it normal or im doing something wrong?
getting my 3090 fe this christmas
>>84465221Temperature, power delivery available, load.The higher your temperatures the lower it will boost. If your VRMs are trash it won't boost as high to prevent your motherboard from catching on fire. If the load isn't enough then it won't turbo fully to save power and reduce heat.
>On Ebay, 3060 ti FE's are currently more expensive than 3070 FE'sFucking clown world.
>>84465244gigabyte b450 gaming xpeaks at 88 (got aftermarket cooler)Load is always full.
why cant we use dual cpu motherboards with one quick single core and one multicored processor? as a standard builds
>>8446531288c is high. My 3600 doesn't go above 75C in CinebenchR20 with a 120mm AIO and that's with a IF overclock to 1866.
upgrading to i5 11600do i have any other choice of mobos than Z490/H470 that takes 11th gen?
>won 3090 in Newegg Shuffle>just resold it for almost 2x what I paidfeels so fucking good man
>>84465189>poopfans instead of 3080ti or 3090
>>84465412is there a notable difference between b560m and b560m-a
MSI B550-a pro vs MSI B550 MAG Torpedo? MSI still the best brand or is Asus or Aorus better these days?
>>84465317Dual socket wasn't made with heterogeneous processing in mind
>>84465317that's assuming that every program is made with parallelized CPUs in mind. we still have games that barely use more than 2-3 cores.
>>84465326Mine is only 1600. What benefit would I get OC'ing it to 1866? My Rams are 3200Mhz clocked.
>>84465677no benefit at all, IF should be synced to RAM unless your RAM is fast enough to outweigh the latency penalty of an unsynced IF
give it to me straight bros. would i be able to build a budget 800 dollar gaming pc that's decent? should be possible right? considering the games i plan on playing are league, xiv, and w/e shooter my friends wanna fuck around in.
>>84465677You want your IF 1:1 with your ram frequency to avoid latency penalty. So if you got 3200mhz ram then 1600mhz IF is fine. The benefit is better performance since your cores talk to each other faster and of course your ram is faster too from higher bandwidth or lower latency.
ETA on B660 and 12400?
lmao who made that retarded SSD flowchart? You can't give people 400 options and call it good
>>84465774League and XIV run on toasters. It shouldn't be that difficult. I was getting 1080p 60fps in those with a i5 2500k and 1050ti.
5800x is 341$ right now. Is that best bet or will cyber Monday be lower??
>people are paying top tier GPU prices for bottom tier GPUsWe're never gonna go back are we
>>84465935How are we supposed to know?
>>84465941Well I had to get this and I know the $550 is over the actual price. However it's either pay retail price now or pay a scalper for $1000 for it.
>>84465395I can't even be mad considering how much you can get for them online. At least it was a fag from here that got it.
>>84465941don't despair, "people" in general aren'there in /pcbg/ & other place you mostly see the ones that are desperate/stupid enough to actually pay those prices. also the ones that are only buying them because they think they can mine back the extra costs.go look at the steam hardware survey.in general, gamers aren't buying shit at these prices.
>>84465941No. It MIGHT get better at the end of 2022/start of 2023.
>>84465935It's 300 at microcenter.
>980 Pro on sale for Black Friday$280 for a 2TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe? Yes please
>>84466031None near me and can't order online.
I have parts from an unbuilt build from years ago, a 8700k and a GTX 1070 Should i just build it or should I try to sell the CPU and Mobo and switch those out? I know the GPU is more likely to bottleneck me then the CPU but obviously the GPU market is fucked right now and switching a GPU out is simpler then replacing a mobo/cpu on an already running machine. For reference, my goals with this is to use it for gaming for the forseeable future. I'm fine with 1080p/60fps, tho I wanna run AAA games on ultra/with raytracing once I can get a better GPUOh, actually, also: Do I really need a M.2/NVMe SSD? I have a bunch of normal ass SSD's from 3-4 years ago I was gonna use for the OS drive and for games, and then a bunch of 1.5tb HDD's I was gonna use for general movie, document, manga, etc storage
My 750w psu has started to have coil whine or other type of non fan related whine today, I think it's like at least 9 years old. It's high pitched enough that it's starting to annoy me. Going to get a replacement soon, I don't care if it's modular or whatever but a good option seems like a Corsair RM750, the one that has the whine is a Corsair TX750. I'm probably just going to connect all the modular cables to it even the ones I don't use because it would suck to lose them or forget where I stored them. The only thing I really care about is price and longevity.
>>84466223given than the 1070 is obviously not LHR, you may be able to sell it for enough to buy a more modern LHR card.not quite sure, but definitely look it upprices in the market are basically pegged to mining profitability, so just check what it sells for and compare it with prices for 3060(ti)
>>84465935Antonline has it for $310 on their site and eBay. They already have low stock left so hurry now.>>84466178
>>84466223>>84466306I sold my 1070 on ebay a few days ago. I got $450 for the dual fan gigabyte one. As long as it doesn't look like it's a train wreck you should get at least $400 for it.
1660ti or 2070?
>>84466481is this a serious question?
Best non curved 1440p monitor for ~$550?Uses are pretty much everything except for vid/pic editingDon't play shooters but I play rocket league/mmosOnly real requirement is high pixel density for sharp pic/text since my eyes are kinda badGood contrast and low response time would be good too.pic related are my specs if needed
>>84466501I meant the 2060, sorryboth are similar prices where I live
>>84466574I don't think high pixel density 1440p monitors even exist. You're going to want to look at 4k monitors if that's a requirement.
>>84466475What would you get instead
>>84466574Buy glasses or contacts
MSI GeForce RTX 3060 12GB GAMING Z TRIOis this shit worth 650$?i bought my 3070 for 730$ last year ( buying thie 3060 for a friend as theyre stuck on a 960 )beware im from sweden so the tax is high
>>84466613I'm not really great on gpu knowledge, but 2070 will enable more 4k stuff while 2060 is just for 1080pp from what I have read and what is in OP. If the difference between the two is around $100, or maybe $150 at the most, then probably the 2070. Assuming this is starting at retail price from an actual store and not some used miner card.
I keep getting blue screens every couple of days, and I have no idea why. I assume it's either the RAM or PSU. The PSU is a silver rated 450w EVGA one, and the RAM is 2 sticks of 8 Gb G.Skill Ripjaws. Alternatively it could be the Assrock b450 motherboard, but my temperatures never get hot, and I never abuse the computer, so I'm not sure why exactly the motherboard would crap out on me now of all times.What's the best way to test each individual component to try and find the cause of the blue screens? I think I fucked around with the RAM voltage a while back because the stock speed it ran at was 2100 Mhz, and I wanted it to run at the advertised 3200 Mhz.
Will a Corsair vengence pro get me better timing for AMD over TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan ? both are 16x2 3600 more or less same price.
I'm looking to get a 2TB harddrive for playing games on. Google said to get the firecuda 3.5" SSHD, however I can't seem to find any that aren't second hand. What happened? Has something superceded that?
>>844666131660ti is a bit slower than the 2060 and it doesn't have meme tracing. Not like the 2060 can pull RT at decent resolution/framerate anyway but it's still a better buy than a 1660ti.
>>84466648instead of MSI, Asus mobo and GPUinstead of evo, intel SSDsinstead of bequiet, lian li casejewtel and amd are equally shit right now so whatever.
>>84466756Are Asus TUF GPUs a solid choice?
>>84466767fuck off Huangsamshit SSDs are pozzed and offer no better quality/speed than Intel or Crucial
>>84465189Should have gone with the chromax fans.
>>84466786asus TUF are the shitty line of Asus but they still manage to be better and last longer than anything MSI
>>84466697>>84466735thanks, I will be getting either 2060 or 2070
>>84466732those are overpriced anyway, you should look into the wd sn850 or samsung 980 pro instead
>>84466794Yes goy, QLC and no DRAM are good for youIn fact, PLC might be even better
>>84466659Some eye problems go beyond glasses anon.>>84466630My current monitor (U2312HM) says it has 95ppi i think, don't know if bigger monitors need higher density but if not then something like that should be fine too
>>84466786They currently have the best coolers
This seems like a decent deal. I would otherwise be tempted to get another fractal r5, but this seems more premium for the same money. Any thoughts? Difficult to find user reviews besides a handful. I wouldn't be interested, but the psu with it makes it seem like a deal
>>84466832sorry I don't reply to shillbots
>>84466824>wddidn't they change thier components to some trash-tier china shit, making thier products shittier?
>>84466574sit closer/zoom in you retardThe pixel density makes everything sharper not bigger
>>84466888But anon, I said sharper, not bigger
>>84466867I believe that was for the blue sn550regardless, the sn850 you can buy right now are still rated for 7000mo/s reads which is similar to the seagate one
>>84466814How people sleep at nite buying bug garbage like MShit and Gigashit
>>84466910>the sn850 you can buy right now are still rated for 7000mo/s reads which is similar to the seagate onehow is it vs the Sabrent Rocket that's at 130$ for 1TB
>>84466946not sure, check the specs and reviews
>>84466920All electronics are made by chinks you dumb nigger, even your favorite EVGA that explodes consists of chink parts and "bad soldering job on our 3090 whoops"
>>84466907wash your eyes
What are some good, well-regarded HDD and SDD Sata?I already have 1 TB M.2 NVMe, but I'd like some storage for random files that i don't urgently need, just in case
>>84466963Not all are in chinese factories you dumb faggot
>>84466981Samsung EVO for SSD in my opinion
Wait for Alder Lake to become widely available or buy a current gen Ryzen?
>>84466981WD and Toshiba for HDDsCrucial MX500 for Sata SSD
>>84467056Buy 5800x from Antonline right now for $300 before they sell out
What's the difference bros?
What's the best GPU that is least of an assfuck? I'm pairing with a 5800x
>>84467211literally nonethe only way to not get assfucked is to rob a store, or a scalper, or a miner, or a warehouse, or a factory. if you do, try to kill some people and carve something abt gpu prices on their dead bodies. (in minecraft, ofc)
>>84465189will this work? first time building a pc by myself and I'm not a budget
>>84466814>asus TUF are the shitty line of Asus What makes them shitty?
>>844672116800XT if the price is right
>>84467272I'm on a budget* fuck me
>>84467272550 PSU is just a bad idea
>>84467284pretty much every omponent is bottom of the line, from the PCB to capacitors to fans. Build quality is just as good as ROG though, so they still manage to outlast/ourperform other brands. The best 3090 to get for quite a while was the TUF one.
>>84467293What's the right price these days?
>>84466920I've never had an issue with any of my gigabyte mobos or gpus. What brand would you recommend instead? Asus has nightmare tier RMA>t. Anecdotal evidence
>>84467111970 Evo Plus has DRAM cache, 980 uses HMB
Which MB for 5800x? B550 or X570?
Are there any cases that aren't gay?
>>84467363Lower than scalped 3080s
Best place/price for a 6900xt? Debating grabbing one at microcenter for ~$1500 cause the AMD direct buy Thursdays are apparently pozzed with bots
my screen just blacked out while I wasn't even running anything intensive yesterday and the GPU won't display anymore so I took it out and use the iGPU for now. But I tested it a bit and when I turn it on, the BIOS still gives the ok beep and a few seconds later I can still hear the window startup sound. I also made the iGPU the top priority and ran it while the GPU is installed and speccy still detects it and I even managed to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.Only thing I haven't tested are the other ports because I only have HDMI right now.Are there any kinds of major GPU errors/failures that are like this or is it just the HDMI port that's broken?
>>84467491Something like this happened to me and it turned out to be a faulty display port cable.
>>84467439Just turn off the LGBT lights
>>84467491My first thought is also what the other anon said. If you're running high-res/Hz and your cable is older it might not be rated for that much data. It SHOULD just bottleneck your video output but I have heard of them breaking.
>>84467475That's the best price you're going to get because they're price matching newegg
>>84467424w-what does this mean
>>84467111Idk but everyone shat on the 980 when it came out and said previous model was a better deal
>>84467601also>970 Evo Plus€89> 980 €79.99
>>84466721>Will a Corsair vengence pro get me better timing for AMD over TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan ? both are 16x2 3600 more or less same price.help
>>84467349why? i dont need more wattage (do i?) and its corsair gold
>>84465221Mine constantly maintains 4000mhz - 4200 MHz during gaymin, it didn't when I had the stock cooler.>Shadow Rock 3 Cooler>B550m Tuf moboBesides not using absolute bottom tier mobo with almost no vrms and no vrm heatsink, the only other factor here affecting you besides temp could be that you have a ryzen 3600 from the 2019 batch. The ones from 2020 onwards have higher stable oc and lower voltage required for said oc
>980 Pro>WD_Black SN850I dunno bros, $40 for some milliseconds off my load times? Feels like PCIe 4.0 differences are getting kind of stupid
>>84467747 many wd_black don't reach advertised write speeds
>>84466716Clear your custom ram voltage/freq/timings dumbass.Then enable XMP, it should work perfectly if both dimms came inside the same box
>>84466832>there will be a day where you can dump all 8 bits into one cell
>>84467842Are you sure that isn't a 500gb or 250gb though? Those don't operate as fast as 1tb and 2 tb drives no matter the brand
>>84467579One has ram itself, the other clogs up during transfers and also consumes your actual system ram (the latter part bring a non-issue if you have 32gb+)
I'm surprised that this 1050 2gb I got from a friend can run shit like Monster Hunter World.I'm a mobilefag who mostly uses his computer to masturbate to hot shota porn so my standards for graphics are low.
>>84467939Oh I have 32gb!! can I buy the cheap one :3
>>84467747isn't the firecuda 530 the same price and almost better in every way than both?
>>84467950Sure, it will throttle anyways during long file transfers
>>84467942World removed Denuvo some time ago so it runs better now. Also helps it got optimization patches and driver updates. On launch it was a stuttery mess on my 1060.
>>84467989I can run the MH Rise demo on Med settings. I guess it has lower standards because it was for made for the Switch.
>>84467966Firecuda 530 2TB is $380SN850 2TBis $320980 Pro 2TB is $280In terms of load times, the SN850 is actually slightly faster than both, but we are talking about literally milliseconds of difference. I'm sure there are some applications where the Firecuda is best, but I'm not doing heavy data transfer shit with my storage usage so I'm not going to pay $100 to shave individual frames off my load screens
Good 1080p 240hz monitors to look out for on sale tomorrow or on monday?>B-but 4kNo. I am a gaymer.
>>84467747Take the SATA pill
>>84468025Yeah, Rise isn't that demanding. But in general RE engine games run great on PC.
>>84468082>gaymer Listen. We all know TES elves are all gay, just keep it simple either dunmer, altmer, bosmer.
>>84468093I did, 6 years ago. Looking to expand with my new mobo after feeling squeezed with my 500gb and a HHD for mass storage

>>84468124>Looking to exapandMX500 comes in 4 TB. It's so elegantly simple and I love it. Can't wait to not fuck around with primary and secondary drives.
Corsair BF 15% off deal is on. Bought an SF750. Just need an itx motherboard and CPU now and CPU cooler now...
>>844681306 years without OCing4 if they do
>>84468145Because they're not gay. They're based tribal chads.
Any places /pcbg/ recommends to buy psu cable extensions?
>>84468215cablemod but be prepared to get ass reamed with costs
i'm thinking of getting a new GPU either a 3070ti or 3080 ti and putting it inside my nr200 case, but i am not home and honestly cant remember the dimesnsions that the case can holdany anon's know?just dont want to buy a card too thick and have to send it back etc
>>84465236if you pair it with good ram it'll last a very long time
>>84468160I'm honestly not sure what I'd do with 4 TB on top of what I already have, I still haven't filled this 3TB HHD after 6 years, close but not quite. All together I'll have 5.5 TB with the new m.2, more than enough
>>84468187>he thinks OCing kills GPU lifeThis isn't 2008 buddy
>>84468305I meant manual irl OCing, not the placebo one.
>>84468293If you're not hurting for capacity then a 2 TB M.2 is probably fine and good value compared to their SATA counterparts. Gen 4 seems pretty unnecessary to me though. I'd probably go 980/970/Evo/Plus if it were my money.
>>84468187>6 years without OCingI hope you're talking worst case scenario
>>84468313>I meant manual irl OCingSo did I. I upgraded from my 980ti which I manually OCed for 6 straight years only because it was time to upgrade, not due to any failures or even performance depreciation
is it worth upgrading from a 6700k yet?
>>84468313You can't brick cards with manual OC. Nvidia and AMD don't let you go past unsafe voltages unless you go out of your way to modify your bios.
>>844683446 years from now it will be useless anyway. You will be able to get something that matches its performance and consumes a fraction of its power, for a lot less money.
Is the idea of installing games on a SATA HDD instead of putting them in my 1TB M.2 NvME dumb? I'm reading that the NvME temperature reaches pretty high and longevity suffers
I remember when Ryzen 5000 CPUs came out some people said it was better to run 4 sticks of RAM instead of the normally recommended 2, is that still true? Was it ever true?
>>84468539Temperatures only get high during sustained transfers not during random IO in gaming. Also not really a issue if you have decent airflow or a heatsink.
>>84468237Damn, I was hoping there was somewhere I was missing. Thanks
Is EVGA have any quality stuff? I see a 750w plus for 100 and thinking about it.
*750w gold, not plus
how good is my old 3000 / CL15 vs 3200 / CL16 for zen3? Would it be smart to get new ram?
>>84468539I only store games on HDD these days cause I use a smaller SSD and transfer as needed.I don't even think about longevity till it's past 50TB written, modern drives are just so good for the average user.
>>84468313>>84468305Well I never OC my 660ti, but this one is the OC edition that I guess has it on by default? Should I turn off OC on it or just let it be if I'm just going to play stuff like CSGO and Switch emulation at like my highest tier stuff at the moment?
>>84468648>Would it be smart to get new ram?No
>>84468544Yes but there's some catch about the ranks/channels. Iirc there's a gamernexus video about this. The gains are about 5%
>>84468716all OC editions are placebos as in they're always meant to run at that power degree but the card comes intentionally gimped by something like 3% so you cna clock "oc" on their shitty software and "unlock it's true power"actual OCing means going beyond whatever the manufacturer specifies with third party tools like MSI Afterburner or directly on your UEFI/BIOS.
>>84468785I know, that's where I'm getting the info from. But that video was a while back, and I wasn't sure if it was still correct/relevant.
>>84468801>cna clockcan click*
>>84468648+200mhz with +1CL doesn't make much difference. You might be able to get the old ram to reach 3200/16 with manual settings anyway. >>84468544What matters is having at least 4 total ranks. 4 sticks are guaranteed to have that, but 2 sticks could have either 1 or 2 ranks per stick. 8gb sticks are basically always 1 each and 32gb 2 each, but 16gb sticks vary and manufacturers don't often label them with this info. Additional ranks beyond 4 are redundant on consumer motherboards.
>>84468729different anon. I have 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 2666 CL16. Can I possibly OC this or should I just buy this g.skill 3200 CL16 or 3600 CL18 I'm looking at on newegg
Reposting. Left is what I currently have and right it what I'm considering. So I'm keeping things like the ram, the PSU, GPU, etc.I'm undecided between a 5600x and a 5800x and I really have no idea what I'm doing with my mobo.What mobo would be best to pair with either of these CPUs? I'm mostly looking to emulate and play at 1080p and am pretty clueless on how much motherboard actually matters.
>>84468539Fast game loading times are one the of the big benefits of SSDs. For some games it might not matter, but I'd put anything loading-sensitive on the SSD. Put a heatsink on if you're worried about temps. Your 1tb will be replaced by a bigger drive before longevity comes into play if the workload is gaming.
Anyone here have the LG 27GP850 monitor who could tell me how low the monitor goes? I've heard it doesn't go too low, and I tend to use monitors quite low.
>>84468919You might as well see how far you can push it first. It won't take long to test it.
>>84468927first of all, get an nvme ssd. doesn't have to be a top of the line pcie gen4 model. look at something like the kingston a2000 or perhaps the samsung 970 evo (non plus). the form factor is better and they are noticeably faster than sata drives.second, what are your use cases? for gaming/browsing/shitposting/torrenting, you will be fine with just 6 cores. if the 5800x is within 50 shekels or so, just get it. otherwise, 5600x is fine. as for the mobo, the mobo quality level will matter if you want to overclock high end chips (the vrm quality and cooling will affect results and longevity). so if you were planning on a 5900x and wanted to overclock, i'd definitely recommend a more expensive model. the one you have will prolly be fine for a 5600x.and the mobo type (b550 vs x570) will matter for the amount of devices you want to connect. x570 gives you more pcie lanes, so if you plan to use more than 1 gpu or more than 1 nvme ssd, x570 is the way to go. for a basic bitch setup, b550 is fine
When will AMD CPUs/Mobos be able to support DDR5?
>>84469020Thanks a bunch, friend.
>>84465189Give me a Case with STUPIDly high amount of RGB and reasonable Airflow for up to 200€.Not for me, my Boss wants a Gaming PC for his 13 year old and when I went to check for my GoTo Unicorn Case, I noticed that it has been seized from production. I've got everything else already.
>>84468809Ah, well I have no need to ever really overclock any games. So I'm just glad that I seem to have a good solid GPU finally as an upgrade. Otherwise I have no idea what specific 3060 GPU is the most preferred.
>>84469129o11 dynamic (~100) + rgb 360 aio + 6 more rbg fanswill be more than 200 total including the aio, but its going to be so fucking gay even Elton John would call the owner a fag.
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wttsRTMy current rig. Anything I should upgrade while the sale is going on?I was thinking of converting it to a smaller form factor since my case is basically already the size of the meshify 2 compact. I don't know what the best way to do that would be though.
>>84468927B550's tend to be decent and X570 is for if you need more pcie4 devices. That A pro is good.>>84469020If the nvme ssd's are only pcie3 you can have two on B550.
>>84469166the case and the coolerthe base hardware itself is fine
>slowly returning non-essential components of my PC as soon as they get deliveredthank you buyer's remorse. saved me $430 already and my rig is still going to kick butt once it's together
>>84469191Any cooler suggestions? Not interested in water
>>84469166How have you liked that Mobo?
How hard is it to take off the "armor" on modern mobos? I want to replace it with either something like my 07 box had in pic rel or if I can't manage that I'll buy those little heat sinks you stick on GPU memory dies. Is that do able?I hate the way my computer looks. It's got all new parts and everything but I just hate it. I didn't specifically pick even one thing to have RGB intentionally yet I ended up with 6 argb fans, a motherboard with two or three separate controllable leds, my GPU has three rgb leds. My case has two built into it. Waterblock...but whats bothering me the most is that the motherboard that cost me nearly $300(barely works btw) for alder lake has worse VRM cooling than the board in my ati 4850 box. My 12700k is lapped and pushed to the absolute max so I'm sure the power delivery could use the help.I wanna make the whole system look cool in my book but this fucking garbage gigabyte mobo comes first. Then I'll look into removing the shroud and back plate from my GPU and putting on my own active back plate and fans and replacing the aio with a open loop with clear tubes and the system fans.
>>84469238It's alright I guess. It's done everything I've asked it to do. Only part that sucks is the RGBT lights on the back of it that you cant disable
>>84469225NH-D15 or NH-U12A if you want something less chunky. chromax.black edition if you don't like brown.
Does amd still have USB connection dropping issue?
Can anyone help me with my build.

Would appreciate any improvements.
>only version of the meshify 2 compact on sale is the tempered glass one
>>84469225nh-d15you could try and save 30-50 shekels or so with a nh-u12 or a scyth fuma 2. imo don't bother. considering the number of hours of usage over the lifetime of the part, the cost/hour is already ridiculously low.get the best, enjoy the quiet.
>>84469157>but its going to be so fucking gay even Elton John would call the owner a fag.Kek'd hard Anon.My Goto was the Enermax Saberay and it had long ass RGB strips along the front and top, the last time I bought the adv instead of the normal version, it would lit up an entire room with RGB so much, the local LGBT community tried to claim the girls room to be their headquarters.I thought something like the Saberay, the O11 is almost entirely a Glass-Box and I won't go water cooling with this thing. So the Fans, Mainboard and RAM would be the "only" RGB in this build ... kinda feels like pic related when coming from that.I need something gayer.
>>84469310>Sabergay for reference
be quiet! is a stupid brand name and I will never buy one of their products for that reason alone
>>84469331Based.Their PSUs blow out a fuse on the regular btw. Every one of my friends who didn't listen and bought one anyways had it blow up on them.
is there a CPU that provides about a 2x performance increase over a 6700k?
>looks at computer part>oh totally get this is great and much better than (other company)>get it >dude lmao that cpu is shit! lul no one wants it it's bad the fuck? 5800x really that bad if it got a good deal on it, also fuck youtubers who shill it one day and say it's trash the next
>>84469283Why do you have two GPUs listed?
>>84469353>buying any PSU that isn't EVGA or Corsair

>>84469331oh be quiet!
>>84469368the only thing people have to say against the 5800x is "hurr durr shoulda bought the 5900 LOL!"mine has been great and i dont regret not shelling out the extra $100 for performance i dont even need
>>84469362Single core? NoMulti core? Yes, plenty.>>84469372Don't need to tell me Anon>Pic rel
>>84469372>tfw bough seasonic
>>84469405Seasonic is GODEST Tier, Higher end EVGA and Corsair are in fact rebranded Seasonic Anon.
>>84469398Good man. Your friends deserve what happened to them.>>84469405I hope you can still return it anon
>>84469388at the original msrp prices, it was a shitty deal(300 for 5600, 450 for 5800x, 600 for 5900x)at those prices, it was a retarded buy. either you are a gaymer and you just get the 5600x and spend the 150 you saved on your gpu, or you actually need multicore perf. and you buy the 5900x.right now with price drops/BF deals etc, it might be a decent buy.
>>84469368Sounds like clickbait videos. It's still very good if you got a nice sale price.
>>84469368Anon, a 5800X at $450 IS shit.A 5800X at $300 is a god tier CPU that makes Intel fefes hurt.
>>84469425>>84469437got it for 340$ though that might still be high
>>84469378>3080ti or 3090.Jeez. Is vr gaming that expensive? How long can I keep a component in a box? I'm getting the components slowly but surely
>>84469461yea, kinda, its rendering 2 screens and in vr you really want your fps to stay high for nausea/motion sickness reasons.and the new gen headsets (quest2/reverb g2/varjo/etc) all have 4k-ish size screensso you have to render something approaching 2x4k and you don't want your frames to drop.yea, you need a beefy GPU
>>84469461In VR, the absolute best hardware money can buy still isn't good enough.
>>84469262>Forced ricer shitDisgusting. Thanks for the response
>>84465189is the 3070 a bad purchase? been wanting a gpu to replace my 1050ti but deciding between a 3060ti and 3070 is not much in price albeit a hundred or so
>>84469534the 3070 is about 10-15% faster than the 3060tiif the price difference is less than that, buy the 3070
>>84469166>>84469238>>84469262>>84469525>Buying MSI mainboards>Buying MSI anythingAsus, EVGA, Gigabyte, in that order. Nothing else.>>84469534How much?
>>84469534For $100 difference, the 3070
>>84469418No, Corsair makes their own PSU's for a long time. The Seasonic rebrands are close to 8 years old now, all their current models are Corsair products.
>>84469549the Optix monitors are pretty good bang for the buck. i've had an ultrawide one on my flight sim rig for about a year now and ive had no issues with it.
>>84469561Well fuck, missed that change.
>>84469493>>84469510Okay, lets say I skip vr but still have a long term, gaming pc running all currently released and soon to be release games on ultra, how much should i be looking at?Don't really care about raytracing.Can I buy a gpu and keep it in storage unopened and unused for a year until i get all the components?
>>84469546>>84469549>>84469551ebay and other sites are like 950-1000 for a 3060ti and the 3070 is 1000-1100
>>84469567Did you reply to the wrong post by any chance?
>>84469586MSI makes the optix series of monitors retard
Is intel arc something to be excited about?
>>84469362You need high resolution+high fps otherwise VR is a motion sickness mess. It's novel at first but you quickly realize how janky and lacking in substance it is after comparing how much money you spent on all this crap unless your sole purpose for VR is to jack off to furries in VRchat.>>84469534If you're already spending over $1000 on a GPU you may as well save up a little bit more extra and get a 6800XT on sale. I got mines for $1200 and it shits all over the 3070 in rasterization, memory bandwidth, and double the vram count.
>>84469595>motion sickness from VRgenetic dead end spotted
>>84469572If you get the 3070 at 1000, it's a ok deal (Good deal would be under MSRP, I'm not giving the scalpshit the satisfaction of calling $1000 for a 70 card a good deal).>>84469591>Talking about MAINBOARDS>HURRRRR, MSI BUILDS GREAT MONITORS RETARDAnon, please leave this board
>>84469595sorry meant for>>84469461
>>84469614>>84469549>>Buying MSI anything
>>84469534It's not bad if you are comparing it to the 3060/3060 Ti, albeit it is a bit odd with it's 8GB of memory.It's bad when you compare it to the MSRP of the 3080, but that's just how the market is.
>>84469534I've been super happy with my 3070, but I also paid like 700 something from best buy. It's a strong card for sure, but either one will absolutely be night and day with what you have now.
>>8446960330fps already looks digusting from a distance now imagine it stuck right next your eyeballs
>>84469549What's with the anti-MSI posting lately? Not only that, but recommending Gigashyte over it? Seriously?
>>84469549Is there an issue with MSI Mobos? I thought they were supposed to be the absolute best as far as vrm and shit
>>84469571>Can I buy a gpu and keep it in storage unopened and unused for a year until i get all the components?sure, but why the fuck would you want to do that?i would bet serious money that gpu prices will by much better 12 months from now. not to mention that new gen gpus will have been releasedif anything, you should buy the other components now and hold off on the gpu purchase.>gaming pc running all currently released and soon to be release games on ultra, how much should i be looking at?depends on target resolution, but mostly roughly the same. for non-VR usage, i'd still suggest a 3080 if you want 4k at all, even for just 1440p ultra a 3060ti or 3070 will be competent at 1440p but will kinda choke on the heavier titles, cyberpunk etc
is teh razer viper ultimate a bad mouse?
>>84469643They're very solid in my experience. All brands have higher and lower end vrms so one brand isn't entirely better than another, but there's literally nothing wrong with MSI except maybe their customer support.
>>84469653yesi had two and could barely feel the switches actuating at all
>>84469653razer is what macfags buy when they decide they want to be gaymerz
what's the smallest ATX case i can get? i dont need space for hard drives or radiators
>>84469676don't know about smallest, but the current compact version of the meshify s2 is pretty small
>>84469676Guessing the new Meshify should be plenty smol, alternatively the be quiet! case should be about the same but a little wider.
>>84469571You could store a GPU for as long as you want provided you test it before the warranty runs out, but it would be foolish in this market because GPU prices are insanely high right now and a new generation will come out in a year. It would be profitable to sell it now and buy back in a year.
>>84469621Let me spell it out for unicellular life as yourself:>Buying MSI Mainboards is stupid>Support MSI by buying their shit after they scalped their own fucking stock is so fucking cucked, it's watching someone tear off you dick and using your own fucking cock as a strap on to fuck your assBut an amoeba as you is already used to tearing off limbs and regrowing them as needed.And now fuck off of my board.>>84469638>>84469643Had very bad experience with them, their CS, anything.The sad excuses they called 4XX and X570 mainboards being competetion for Panini Grills made them wake the fuck up to their collosal failure and not dare to skimp out on 5XX boards. MSI was always a shit tier company.Them scalping their own stock was the cum-frosting on the shit cake.
>>84469715>cum-frosting on the shit cake.kek/10go on anon, take a load of your chestalways nice to see some1 shitting on crappy companies
>>84469715I see. I've always used gigabyte for motherboards and been super happy with them even if their bios leaves something to be desired at times. Was always told I should have bought MSI
>>84469695>>84469711at 424 x 210 x 475 mm it's barely smaller than other cheap barebones atx towers on the market. is that really the smallest they go?
>>84469734if you want seriously smol, you will have to give up on full atx compatibility
>>84469745my mobo is getting old anyways and i only use one pcie slot so thats not really a dealbreaker for me. what's the catch with meme SFF mobos/cases?
>>84469754shit cooling, expensive itx mobos, expensive sff psusimo stop being a fag and just buy the meshify. its a decent case.
>>84469715all companies are always up to something scummy. probably these exact situations too, only not getting caught. I honestly don't care, if the product is good and doesn't break the bank I'll get it. I've never had a bad experience with them and their boards aren't completely anti-user like Gigashyte.
>>84469754If you want to sff just get nr200 like rest of the reddit npcs. You can get a nr200 clone and stick large air cooler + full psu.>>84469778That's sff tax lol you can buy cheaper clones on ali. Based chinks.
I genuinely do not understand why they couldn't have a ddr4 and ddr5 compatible mobo. Couldn't they just have 2 slots for ddr4 and 2 for ddr5? Do they really think that many people need quad RAM?
>a new generation will come out in a year.y-yeahhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0frNP0qzxQc
>>84469812Can't wait to pay $800 MSRP for a 4060
So getting a video card is out of the question since nothing is in stock and those that are are insanely overpriced. But is it worth it to upgrade my motherboard and processor? I basically only game casually so like 1080p FPS games.
>>84468846Thanks, Anon. Do you think I'm better off getting a 4x8GB kit to guarantee 4 ranks, or playing the rank-lotto with a 2x16GB kit?
>>84469191why cooler? A 212 evo should be more than enough for his 5800 unless hes running it at full boost all the time in a hot room
>>84469893Only if you care about emulation
350 euro for the 5800X? Yay or nay?Also would my U12S be able to cool it? I have one fan on it now since I have a R5 3600.I want to upgrade one last time before AM4 goes out for good.
>>84469919>A 212 evo should be more than enough for his 5800lol, no, the 5800x is notoriously hot-runningnot because of efficiency, the total watts are low, but because of heat density (all the watts are coming from the tiny ccd)also, imo you should always get top of the line cooling. even if you don't *need* it to get the best perf your chip can give, its nice to have a quieter system. and the price diff between a decent cooler and a top of the line one is like 50 bucks, so why not.compared to the rest of the build, the extra cost is a rounding error
>>84469954Mindfactory?Their "Deal" is a fucking Joke, they had that CPU for that much online for a fucking week.The price is pretty good though, Amazon has them for 380€.>U12SIt's going to be alright, just don't OC too much.
What's the difference between adaptive, freesync and gsync?From what I gather the 2 are just pretty marketing names for adaptive sync but is that really it?Do you still have to get a gsync monitor for nvidia cards?
Is the 980 really worse than the 970 Evo plus? I get conflicting info whereever i look. I just want a new sad for gaming bros and no we where I am...
>>84470009They all accomplish the same thing.You can use Freesync on Nvidia but only on GTX 1000 series or better. If you have something like a 970 you can't use freesync, you need a gsync monitor for the same effect.
>>84469893yea, your system is old, even a budget new system (see below) will really outperform the fuck out of itfor gaming, your average fps will probably not change much, but your stutterings/1% lows should improve perceptibly and the overall experience in other programs will be much snappier basic bitch budget gaming system:11400(f) and b560 mobo (check prices/deals, it may be worth it to go for a 11600 (non-k) or even a 5600x/b550 if they are close enough in price)16gb decent ram, 3600mhz cl16decent cpu cooler (im a fan of getting top of the line always, for the extra quiet)1tb gen3 nvme
>>84469992>Mindfactory?yep, im a balkanshitter so they are my first option if im not buying from my own countrythe "black friday" deals here currently place the 5600X at 370 euro which is just laughableI did notice mindfactory upped the price of the 5600x from 289 to 298 kekalso thanks, I wont oc so I guess it will be fine, maybe ill get a second fan for the cooler either way if I find one on sale
Should I get the VG27AQ or VG27AQL1A
What's the cheapest decent motherboard I can get for the 5800x? I don't really care about features. I just want it to work without it catching on fire.
>>84469954not bad considering the msrp price of 450 american bux for one is still stupidly priced, but thats not bad either I would say go for it if you can and definity if you can get it a bit cheaper, as for cooling that should be adequate i used a masterair ma620p for mine and it seems to keep it in the 60s range under load just keep an eye on it like the other anon said
>>84470057>BalkanshitterJoa, Willkommen halt.Yeah, last year was a shame for them (sold their returned Tray 3600Xs for the price of Boxed ones), but this year is not far behind.High Pressure on the Intake side, Airflow on the Exhaust
>>84469805It would be more expensive and they don't expect them to sell well enough.
>>84470087as long as it doesnt melt itself I will be fine>>84470143thanks, i think i will buy it tommorow
>>84469901Depends on prices. Also return policies, and whether other customers reported what they got.
Bros, help me decide real quick on 5600x vs 12600k, BF and allTDP for 5600 is 65W, but for 12600k it's 150WDoes 12600k get alot of heat compared to 5600x?Mainly gaymingIve been thinking about this shit for a few days now and i still haven't decidedaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
>>84470293Get the 5600X if you care about power consumption and price, 12600K if you want your PC to double as a space heater. Don't even think about not water cooling that fucker.
>>84468808I built a 5600x rig recently and going from 2 8gb sticks to 4 was about a 3% uplift no xmp change.
been out of the loop how much Wats are need for the 30xx and the future 40xx?
>>84470441>400+ Power consumptionWHATI THOUGHT IT WAS 65AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>84469893Going from a 4590 to an 11th gen i5 (11400, 11600k, etc.) would double your FPS in a lot of games. It's even the case for 10th gen i5s as shown in this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9HV9V5nzOcExcept they use a 4690k so the difference would be even more stark for you.
>>84470499>what is total system consumption>t. illiterate
>>84469659>>84469674damn dudes, all the reviews say that theyre good. i like the glorious model o but hate how it looks. this one has a similar shape and is also wireless so i thought it would be good
>>84470512Oh...so its the whole PC?Well im a fucking retardAnyway, the reason why im asking is becouse i have a shit fan, but i know that it'd keep 5600x cool for sureAnd i play CPU intensive games (mainly single core), otherwise i wouldn't ask since in normal games it gives around ~5 fps boost
>>84470571just buy a liquid cooler
>>84470571anon, you will buy a $200-300 cpu, a $100-150 mobo, another $100 at least of ram, god knows how much on other stuffyou're worried about dropping the last $100 on the cpu?
>>84470594but i already have a cooler>>84470636You mean 100$ on a cpu cooler? Yeah its going way over the budget already, dont want to buy another cooler
>>84470661buy a better cooler then doesnt have to be liquid
Anyone here has a 150mm modular atx psu in an nr200? Is there enough space left for a270 x 130 x 40 mm gpu?
>>84470666>>84470661>>84470636>>84470594>>84470571Wouldn't he be fine as long as he doesn't OC it?From all the benchmarks i've seen, it should be around the same temperatures as 5600x, and 12600k already beats 5600x WITHOUT OC
>>84465189would I lose too much performance if I'm planning to use a 12600k with DDR4 and W10? I could get a 5800x for 40bucks more.
>>84470043>>84470504Thanks bros I'll look into replacing the processor then. And I guess the mobo as well since I doubt my old one can support the new gen processors. I'll shop around this weekend and see if I can find some cheap deals.
>>84470951Also do I need to upgrade my RAM? It's already 16GB I don't think I need anything better yeah?
looking for a case that fits a full-size ATX and a 360mm rad (just so I don't need to buy new parts) but I want it to be relatively small and preferably horizontal. I'm currently using the lianli pc-011 dynamic, but I want to downsize it a bit and fit it in a media cabinet. I'm not constrained by size, outside of the internals I need to fit in it, since I am going to be building the cabinet around the PC and consoles I have
>>84470958you have ddr3 ram, you need ddr4 for 11th gen intel and 5000 series amd (and 12th gen intel can run ddr5, but can also run ddr4)sorry, replacing the ram is not optionalthe nvme ssd is optionalthe cpu cooler is optional, if you existing one can mount to lga1200 or you can buy a mounting kit for itbut cpu/mobo/ram have to bought to match each other
>>84466814wtf it's literally the same
>>84470951if you go for a b560 motherboard you should be careful because a lot of them are trash and could throttle your i5. some good ones are recommended in this video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkiTA0XvXUMan 11400f is less likely to be throttled than an 11600k obviously because it uses less power. you never stated what your budget is though so who knows what you can get.
>>84466984 both Gigabyte and MSI are taiwanese companies you worthless nigger, kys
Will it run? anything i can do to shave off price?https://newegg.io/b3309a3
i'm thinking of upgrading from a NH-U9S for cooling my 12700k. My main issue isn't actually with it being an alder lake board, it's the extreme limited compatibility of my Gigashite ITX mobo due to it's weird chunky M.2 heatsink (aorus ultra z690i ddr4). The only other noctua that'll fit it is the NH-C14S which apparently is a stronger unit but it's oriented horizontally rather than vertically. my case is a fractal node 304 so the mobo is sitting flat parallel to the bottom of the case. I don't see why it should be a problem but is there some reason why it wouldn't work or not be effective?
courier arrived> another 32Gb of DDR4 3200, will be running 48Gb > 2Tb Samsung Evo 970 Pro NVMe> Synology DS220J> 2x 4Tb IronWolfsRetiring 3x 256Gb 2.5" SSDs from 2009/10 finally. feels good man.
I built my first PC about a week and somehow it works but I'm having trouble with of all things one of the case fans. For some reason whenever I boot up the PC (from shut off or sleep) it will randomly be really damn loud and make a buzzing sound constantly while it spins.I don't know a real fix other than turn the PC off and fuck with the fan. Wiggle it around in its fixture, pull it then press it hard into its fixture. For some reason this tends to work and its silent on next bootup and stays silent as long as I leave the PC on but when I startup again the buzzing will often return. Anyone know what might actually be causing this and a permanent fix?
>>84471744The bearings on the fan needs lubricant. Can use synthetic oil or grease they use for fidget spinners.
>>84471744Which case/fan was it?
When is it more cost effective to buy vs build? I just want a PC with decent enough RAM and CPU so I can play SC2 and do some programming/ML stuff.
^Oh, also it has to have a "display port" port since I just bought monitor with that and no HDMI (blows chunks but whatever, i bought used and the ad said HDMI but I shoulda checked
>>84471000Thanks bro. I'll shop around, but if it's all expensive since I have to get the 3 parts then I might just push the upgrade out another year.>>84471042Money isn't a concern since I have a lot of disposable income, but I would like to get the best price-performance ratio. I'll look into the 11400f.
>>84472007>I might just push the upgrade out another year.if you hold off until amd releases zen4, you can jump straight into a ddr5 systempresumably prices/availability will have improved by then (i wanna say, q3 '22 is when zen4 is coming? not sure)
>>84468053>but we are talking about literally milliseconds of differenceDoes this not matter a lot, especially when reading/writing lots of small files?
>>84470967ok given up on that ideai hope this picture is good enough that you can kind of see whats going on, i can explain in more detail/post more pics if necessarydoes this look like an OK setup for a PC in a drawer? im just trying to see where things fit without blocking any airflow. ill be drilling holes to allow for cables and fans and shit later, i just want to see if i can actually fit this stuff in here. this js the bottom drawer in a chest of three, the top two are half the height. id be essentialy removing the bottom of the drawer above this one to allow for the rad to exhaust out the top, and then out the back of the cabinet/chest unit.
>>84472104for applications that benefit from very high seq reads and writes, a fast gen4 will really make a differencefor just starting up some rando app, nah, you won't notice a thingwhat will be interesting is the DirectStorage api for gaymz. its not here yet, but i think it will come at some point on w11. and to use that you need gen4
>>84471767Its basically brand new I wouldn't have thought that. Is it difficult to do? I don't wanna spill grease in my PC or some shit.>>84471931Its an NZXT case and I don't know about the fan I think its one of the two or 3 that came with it (its the only one acting up though). Its the fan I mounted to the underside of the top of the case
Any reason not to use a H510 board for a i7-11700k build? don't plan to overclock, and it's the only affordable itx board that doesn't look tacky as fuck. I'll be able to hit 3200 on the ram right? why are itx board options always so fucking nonexistant at budget prices?
>>84472143honestly mate, just get a normal case and put it beside the cabinetis all this fuckery really worth the time and trouble?do you *really* have to be special like that?
>>84472161because i like to make stuff! also there isnt really anywhere else to out it except on top, which i already had before and im trying to move away from that to free up space. these drawers are literally empty anyway, and ive been wanting to do something like this for years
>>84472152You literally take off the sticker or cover for the bearings, add a drop or two of lube, spin the fan a bit to work it in, and then seal it back. Takes like 3 minutes total. If you're uncomfortable with that then just buy a new fan.
>>84472158You'll have to power limit the 11700 to <100W and lose out on performance since h510s are bottom of the barrel boardsH boards don't support ram OC so you're limited to 3200 speeds but not sure if that includes xmp or whether it only allows 3200 22-22-22 JEDEC timings
>>84472158for a 11700, you want a decent b560 boardlook at hardwareunboxed's b560 vids, they have one on powerlimits and one where they examine mobo perf. get the cheapest b560 that will allow the 11700 to boost indefinitely
>>84472158Is this also over your budget? I mean you're buying 11700k for Christ's sake.I'm sure /g/ will call it shit or whatever but it's what I'm using and have no problem with so far.
>>84465189so, is there a "recommended brands" somewhere in the sticky I didn't see or is it just generally hit or miss? I see some people swear up and down by some brands while others get panned. reason I'm asking is I just had a gigabyte AORUS board die outright after two days of working fine and I'm not sure if the company itself is shitty or if I just got a lemon.
>>84472270Lemon. Plenty of people use Aorus boards just find, it can happen to any board, especially if it dies in like a day
>>84472268I've just always seen bad reviews on ASRock budget boards for years about them crapping out.
>>84471744>>84471931bearing fuckery, just open an rma with nzxt
>>84469653>>84469659fuck lol, optimal switches my ass
>>84472313Fair enough. I agreed with you. When it comes to mobo you want one that's the most reliable, and Asrock isn't particularly popular brand.Still, sometimes it's the only (budget) choice and I just tried to find as many negative reviews as possible before making my purchase.
>>84472270You should look at the specific lineup to figure out the best products.With gigabyte PSUs being under the fire recently for instance, both Seasonic and EVGA had exploding models in the past (and probably in the present too)
>>84472425lol funny you mention EVGA. My roommates 980ti literally went up in smoke not too long ago. not sure what killed it as the only warnings the system were was giving were random shutdowns. somehow it didn't take anything else out with it.maybe I'll give ASUS a go this time around. the only product of theirs I've ever had "issues" with was their first gen android transformer pads (easily fixed with a ROM flash)
>>84472148Even though I don't need extreme sequential performance, and latency seems to be slightly better on the SN850, I'm still going with the FireCuda 530 2TB for my dream build, simply because I want the best.
anyone got any motherboard recommendations for the Ryzen 7 5800X
>>84472143is it a good idea to reuse the motherboard tray from an old case? im thinking i can drill out the rivets and reuse it, which gives me something to screw my motherboard into so its not just sitting on wood. the case in question is not the one i was using, its from an old mATX office pc thats been sitting in my shed for ages. my current mobi is full ATX so its not perfect but its better than nothing?or is there something else i could/should do?
>>84472539It's only the best at certain things though, you are talking about literally millionths of a second off of tasks you don't even do
>>84472618>you won't notice it blah blahIt's about having the best. You wouldn't get it.
>>84472648I have a 12900K paired with a SUPRIM X 3090, what wouldn't I get
>>84472655I am choosing the FireCuda not just because it's the best, but because the box art is beautiful. The difference in price between other options is just like ordering a commission.
AAAAAAHH Why are these GPU prices so expensive?! I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy a 6900-XT for twice the msrp.
>>84472539The fuck is wrong with Samshit? I thought they were supposed to be the best.
>>84472675You'd better get the 4TB with a heatsink then if you really want the best. Since read/write speeds go up the larger the capacity, and that controller chip gets really spicy. That'll be $940 please, without tax.
Bros, my GPU died 3 months into the pandemic panic and I've finally given up and became an iGPU pleb because I refuse to reward scalpers, miners and retail cocksuckers by paying triple what I should. I returned to my childhood roots of low resolution, low settings and low fps gaming.
>>84472727>The fuck is wrong with Samshit?The 980 Pro is a year old now, the other ones are new. It used to be the best, now it's only the best in certain tests.
>>84472736Hey I'm not that nuts, buddy.
>>84472743What GPU was it?
>>84472759Aww jeez, you mean you DO understand the limits of what is rational?
>>84472768Look, I just want the FireCuda, ok??
>>84472792>mfw some anon is not taking my hardware purchasing advice>reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
>>84472792Lol, I know, I do get it. If it were FPS, sure, but not milliseconds off load times
>>84472743I'm really tempted to build a little 5700G box to use with my TV. how's it been treating you in everything besides gaming?
>>84472539does this matter for gaming
heh, made a cheap build with an apu. god i'm a gamer
>>84472919not too much. Games rely on latency and random read speed. So long as they're not terribly slow, you're good to go.
>>84472919I think that for just about everything, latency is more important than throughput.
>>84472767GTX 970. In hindsight I was too complacent because it still ran all the games I wanted at 1080p without much trouble, but at 5 years old I knew it would've died soon.>>84472815Pretty good, but you don't want the 5700G for an HTPC, it's overkill. Even if you wanted to use it for emulation on the big screen, a 5600G will serve you well and it'll be a hundred bucks cheaper. The iGPU performance difference is negligible too, somewhere around 5%. It plays back 4k60 HDR vids on YouTube no problem, but I hear that it does not have HDCP 2.2 and PlayReady 3.0, which are needed for 4k UHD bluray playback and Netflix in 4k, if those things matter to you. It also doesn't have AV1 hardware decode, which is expected to be a big thing, starting in a few years. If you're mostly looking a media playback box then there is no need for you to go too far, and you can even just buy a cheap little Athlon and a 1 liter plastic slab and call it a day.
will this ssd work on my mobo as a boot device just fine? https://www.newegg.com/samsung-970-evo-plus-1tb/p/N82E16820147743https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/Z170A-GAMING-M5/Overview
>>84472971GTX 970, home, despite the 3.5 Gb meme.Anyway I gave mine to my sister when I upgraded to 2060 Super. Sure hope it doesn't die on her anytime soon.
Whats a good motherboard for Ryzen 7 5800x?
Ok so I know I want a 750w psu and looking at the EVGA 750 GQ since its on sale rn, i7-12600k, 16 gb of ram so far. What would be a good motherboard for the i7?
>>84473003B550 Tomahawk>>84473048X690 Tomahawk
>>84472161It's really fucking hard to find a non-windowed LED-studded case with decent build quality that isn't expensive as fuck. It's weird that simple shit is gone and we have 600 versions of the same case with the same window, same LEDs, and same 2 USB ports on the front.
>>84473062I mean it looks cheap on Amazon but it says it supports 10th and 11th gen intel. The i7-12600k is a 12th gen so you sure it will work with it? I barely know much about this sort of stuff. The most I've done with computers is adding ram to the alienware Ive had since 2014.
>>84473115be quiet 802. yes, its kinda pricy. but it comes with adequate and good fans, has exceptional build quality and features and generally doesn't drop the ball in any major way.considering how long you can keep it for, imo its excellent value for the discerning, heterosexual white man.
is a Ryzen 7 5700U the same as 5700G (laptop)
>>84473313No. The U is meant for laptops while the G is the desktop variant with higher clocks and video capabilities
>>84473335what about the U and H?so I could potentially be better off with a mini pc with a XXXXG cpu
>>84472313I've heard Asrock isn't reliable, but on the flipside, I have to wonder how many people are pushing them to their limit. I'm sure if you do that they crap out early, but I wonder how long they last if you don't.
>>84473138Not him, but I hate having the usb ports on the top. Dust will fall into them.
>>84473125X690, not X590
>>84473125>>84473446hold up I'm retarded. It's Z690.
>>84473459Gracias. I've looked through the two links in the op but couldn't see something for 12th gen.
>>84473502Yeah those links are only for AM4 or 10/11th gen intel. Options for alder lake are limited, even for DDR4. just browse pcpartpicker to see what there is.
computer intensive interest include starcraft and machine learning (programming in general, including backtesting, but it's usually not computationally expensive - openGL can be a little bit, but it's nbd). I'm wondering at what point I should upgrade from the shitty desktop I already have.
>>84472195off to my old mans house i go! ill post the results once its finished.i figured out the best way to lay it all out, and i even snagged a power button and front IO from that old office PC. could go for a CD rom as well, but i dont think i can afford the space and i never really used CDs anyway
>>84473510The ASUS ROG Strix Z690-G looks nice, but the ddr5 ram looks more expensive. But if that's whats going to be made going forward I guess I'll look towards this one.
MSI GeForce RTX 3060 VENTUS 2X 12G OC LHRWould this be a decent upgrade that will last me fore some years? Have a 970 right now that isn't feeling that well
>>84473672It's too soon to get into DDR5 unless you have the means to throw thousands of dollars away and not flinch
>>84473681ah you're right for some reason google was showing ddr4 ram when I searched for ddr5. Yeah ddr4 then.
>>84472539If it isn't optane, it's not the best
Is Adorama a legit seller?
