Post your component list, rate other anons', and ask questions in general.

Always state the purpose of your PC, your budget, AND YOUR COUNTRY if outside the USA.
If you are asking for improvements, clarify whether you want to lower price or to improve specs or build quality.

Assemble your parts list; built-in price comparisons by vendor and a compatibility filter.

Kaby Lake has been released! Skylake is depreciated if corresponding chips are similarly priced (e.g., i5 7600K vs i5 6600K)!

So I currently have 3x 23" 1080p 60hz monitors and would like to upgrade to a higher resolution monitor for my main display and then have 2x portrait displays for the sides as I currently need more desk space. Would it be worth getting a 1440p 120+ hz monitor if the other two are still 60hz? Also I don't play games so would the extra hz even matter?

Hi /g/
I got a new condo and I've given my old PC to my family. I'm using a meme acer laptop which is by far the worst investment in my life (i7 6700hq, gtx960m, 16gb ddr4, 120gb ssd, 1tb hdd, overheats like a bitch even with chrome).

My old PC had i5-2500k, amd 6970 and 8 gigs of ram. I'm looking into buying something that would fit into smallest case possible, something like Mac Mini (which is looking good imo).
Not a gaymer, I'd still want to run some new titles just to check em out. My old PC struggled with The Witcher 3, I need a PC that would run TW3 in 1080p at max details with 50+ fps (not falling for 60fps meme).

I was considering i5-7500 and RX 460. Maybe i5-7500 is overkill? I'm looking for the cheapest build possible ofc, only intel cpus

Build my first pc here for casual gaming, every is already working, the thing is, i was thinking of getting a RX 460 but it turns out i can actually get an RX 480, the problem being that, according to PCpartPicker the whole consumption will be around 419W and my current EVGA is 430W, so my question is, is the consuption presented by PCpartPicker enough to fuck thing up or will the EVGA endure untill i can get something around 600W?

is "an i5 is all you need for gaming" meme finally dead?

in all the recent Digital Foundry vids (hell even other YTers), the i7 consistently scores anywhere from 20% to 50% higher. even older i7s seem to be a better buy than new i5s, even at the same price. in Canada, I can grab a 2600k for a bit over $100, but a 7600k is $330. even a 4790k+mobo can probably be had for $350 if you find a good deal

I'm assuming you're asking if a i5 2400 will bottleneck the rx470 (since the other way around doesn't make sense). I'd say yes, probably. a stock 2500k will bottleneck a r9 290, but again, it depends on the game. GTA5, Witcher, maybe Battlefield, yeah your cpu will bottleneck

Waste of time on the upgrade route in my opinion - if you want to upgrade such a build you'd realistically be going all out rendering most of what you have completely useless. Realistically any cpu upgrade would require new ram unless you specifically hunt down a DDR3 supporting chip and (again) new cpu realistically means new mobo.

Plus Intel's igpu is shockingly bad outside of iris pro (which doesn't come cheap). In short, that build isn't good for too much despite its low cost and upgrading it is a waste of time. Honestly at this sort of performance tier i'd look towards AMD - their APUs will massacre the pentium for igpu performance and you really aren't going to be needing enormous cpu horsepower anyway.

Build a PC with the cheapest component, either use pcpartpicker or the website of your choice to find them (ex; newegg.com, amazon, etc). pcpartpicker will help you with the compatibility of your parts, but don't rely on it.

A majority of CPU come with integrated graphics, meaning you don't need a graphics card, especially if you're only going on the internet. So choose one that has integrated graphics.

For a basic pc you'll need a case, motherboard, ram, cpu, power supply and storage. I'd recommend AMD cpus if you're going for a budget build.

Yo dudes, i've got a build with a GigaByte 1070 and a i5-7600k that i plan to be buying towards the end of the month, originally, i planned to buy a Asus PG279Q ROG Swift to go with it, under the assumption its basically gonna last until it breaks or 4k becomes the new norm. some stuffs come up that forces me to spend a good amount of money elsewhere, so my budgets has been cut down a decent bit.

To the actual point:
is 1440p really that amazing? im thinking about keeping the gtx1070 + the 7600, and getting a "temporary" 1080p main screen for gaming, that i can then eventually use as a third screen when i have enough money to fully step up to 1440p

my thoughts behind 1080p, is that it wont hurt as much, using it for a bonus monitor, and 1080 gaming takes a significantly less power, right?

i spent a good while looking up differences between IPS and TN on high end monitors, and i respect the fact, that TN picture is perfectly fine, from right angle, and has a slightly higher responsetime, but you just cant deny the picture quality of IPS, and you're already making a bigass investment in my eyes. here, the PG278Q is merely 130$ cheaper, too, unless you had the "old" acer HUA in mind?

of course theres both good and worse TN/IPS monitors, but at the high end, a fair comparison could be the 278Q to the 289Q.

in this case, the picture of the 278Q just looks a bit weird to me, because of the contrast ratio, otherwise it seems pretty close.

here's what i'd call a good video for comparrison
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79r5rxS276Y

its not a case of "IPS is ALWAYS BETTER" but i'd say most TN monitors arent as good as that one, no?

yes, he does say that the color accuracy of the 2 monitors is the same, its the contrast ratio that is lower than promised on the TN monitor, meaning in a difference between the darkest and lightest colors, that results in some plain colors on the TN having a pinkish shade. im sure you get used to that pretty quickly, if you arent doing design and stuff, but he also makes a point out of explaining, that this TN panel is of exceptionally high quality.

Looking at a different site for each figure, I'm seeing normally 880-920:1 for the 278Q, while the IPS is better at 940-1000:1 (yet being worse when factoring in ANSI uniformity to the figure, making it 760:1 on the IPS vs 915:1 on the TN)

Ok, I'll fix that.. the parenthetical statement was supposed to indicate using only an already flashed or otherwise Kaby Lake ready mobo. I can see that it's very confusing and unclear.

Anyone know of a case with these types of vents? I have a boner for uniform ventilation like if they need to ventilate anything I want the whole side to be ventilated.

I thought if the whole sides are ventilated theres no pressure to push the hot air out and cool air in?

I have no idea what is a good budget CPU cooler for a decent overclock on i5 7600k. People say 212 Evo won't cut it and Cryorig is not available in my country. I can't afford to spend more than $40.

Please help.

Do you have air conditioning?

Yes, absolutely.

Does hyper-threading matter in games outside shit like heavy combat simulators and Civ VI? Considering between 7600K and 7700K.

>> No.58804027

>>58803968
Can you set up your PC near it and rig it to blow the cold air into your machine? That should cost less than $40 easily.

Air conditioning into a PC in a high humidity area sounds like a horrible idea. I asked for a sub $40 CPU cooler that would work with i5 7600k, not a workaround for a cooler entirely.

>> No.58804168

>>58804123
just offering another option. and condensation would only occur - if ever - on the outside of a case not on the hot parts of a computer. Its highly unlikely to happen - and you would know that if you knew anything about how hot and cold air interact

So you would run a CPU bare with just A/C blowing into the case?

Yeah, i don't think thats going to work, when you'll try using it, it'll probably reject it saying its meant for an OEM device.

I use a 212 on my 7600k. I have ambient temp of 40°c+ and it does fine.

That sounds pretty fucking neato, I will dig deeper on the 212. Thanks /a/non.

Stock clocks at full load with 40c ambient usually gives me around 68c max temp.

Gonna overclock it when winter here comes around.
