Post your component list, rate other anons', 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 improve specs or build quality.

>Assemble your parts list with price comparisons by vendor and compatibility filter.

>Have a budget, but don't know where to start? This will recommend you a parts list based on price.

>General build advice including chipset compatibility, power supply advice, Windows activation information.

>Information about how to assemble a PC, how to select components, etc.

>Consider a G4560 instead of i3; similar performance, up to 50% cost reduction.

Guys I plan on building a new PC after some 8 years. I didn't know much about computers then and I do not know that much now either so please give me some advice.

Pic related is my current PC.

And this is the way I am using it now and how I plan on using my new PC:

I think I play mainly older and not that graphic intensive games such as Smite, League, DotA, Don't Starve etc but I would like to run them perfectly and also run at least the current stuff at solid 60fps without compromising graphics settings too much. I only plan on gaming at 1920x1080 for now and no more.

The thing is, I also plan on streaming said games. And I also like let's call it multitasking a lot. I like playing games, browsing the net, streaming/being on a skype call, watching videos all at the same time.

And it is also very important for me that I will be able to use Windows 7 for general use. Can I dual boot Windows 7 + Windows 10?

Because of these reasons I am thinking either one of the 6/12 or 8/16 Ryzens + RX 480 8GB.

Thoughts? Will it be enough for the way I plan on using my PC?

Hey, I'm looking for an SSD, just to replace the HDD in a laptop, guess this thread is a good place to ask.

Did some looking around, the Patriot Blast 240GB for less than 70EUR seems the best of options - it's MLC, has 2M MTBF, and a nice benchmark on harddrivebenchmark.net, and is a good bit cheaper than anything comparable.
A perfectly good choice, right?

A 1060 won't hold 60 fps at that resolution. Also you probably want a better cooler, try the h7. 3000mhz ram would be nice too.

if you want to save money, there's nothing wrong with the MX300. it's like comparing a 1070 vs a 1080. One might have a performance boost, but if you're not going to make use of it then you might as well save the cash.

but if you're worried about it then connect both to a fan splitter and connect the splitter to your cpu_fan connection. that way you're guaranteed to get even voltage to both.

>> No.58946709

No it's like comparing a cheap SATA SSD to a real NVME drive that is 5-6x as fast instead of 1x as fast as SATA for $30 more.
Getting a SATA M2 is literally retarded, there are no advantages over a generic SATA SSD until you get into samsungs NVME lineup, Samsung really has no match in NVME drive speed at the moment.
If you aren't worried about speed, get the 2.5" SATA instead of the overpriced M2 SATA that will give you no advantages, use up your m2 slot (which you could've filled with an NVME drive) and cost more.
You're not comparing good performance to better performance, you bought a M2 SATA SSD that performs the exact same as any 2.5" SATA SSD
Getting an M2 that isn't NVME is pretty much admitting you have no idea what you're doing and are just following the crowd (because they all have M2's right? All you need is an M2 right?)

AMD has more cores but they've always been inferior to Intel's.

Intel's hyperthreading adds 'logical cores', but they usually test at about 70% of the power of a true core (granted there's a lot more to it than that), which has still pushed Intel's i7 over the 8-core AMDs through history.

So Intel has been the go-to choice for complex CPU intensive work like streaming and rendering and the such. But AMDs 8 true cores are better for stuff like [email protected] or bitcoin mining where you need to do a lot of simple computations as fast as possible.

Think of it as a homeless guy with a calculator vs a Yale professor with a full schedule. The poor guy might not be as knowledgeable but he's got more time to work on stuff, while the Yale professor might be more capable but he's better suited for complex work.

At least this is what my 2-3 months researching between Intel and AMD has taught me.

>> No.58946788


>no advantage

There's a huge advantage in a mini ITX case where you don't have room for much airflow. M.2 will always be superior.

>he doesn't know about Ryzen

M2s get really hot on mITX motherboards, there's just not enough room.
2.5" drives are well seperated from the PC heat output and have their own giant heatsink casing. Also you gain nothing from an M2 over SATA unless you're using NVME

you can remove the 5.25 bays and the HDD bays to improve airflow from the front. I don't like AIO because I get better temps from air, so I removed as much as I could and kept the two bays in the basement for HDD.

I'm the person who posted the build and am neither of these guys arguing.

Chiefly I was doing it to avoid more cables but I'm sure one cable to the SSD isn't going to cause any issues. Those samsungs are nearly twice the price and I'm already very happy with SSD speeds so I'll just switch it to a 2.5" drive since there's mounts for those.

Chances are it might run into stock issues. With reviews coming out within a day or two of release, you will then know where the expectation is.

Key thing to look for is how much it will overclock and how the the CPU compares clock/clock with intel variants.

Chances are if its within 10% of Intel shit(given same clock speed), AMD wins out because the overall value is much better. If AMD can overclock past 4.5Ghz, then they will be the true king of CPU this generation and maybe next.

This is my issue. The SATA SSD I put in my laptop in place of it's old spinning one seems blazing fast to me, and I think it's only 3Gb/s anyway. Probably a SATA M2 drive would feel fast enough for me but I really just want to buy everything once, and only replace it if it breaks.

With a 1070 at 1440p youll get 60fps in some games and 144fps in other, it'll give you a locked 60fps if you want it to but I think it's worth getting into the high Hz (but you are right, 144fps is not possible for every game, so I recommend gsync as well)
75hz locked 1440p would be doable, Witcher 3 is the only game I could imagine getting troubles reaching that on max settings
If you have the money though, 1440p high-Hz gsync would be the best match for a 1070 (or 1080 even) that still allows you to flex your GPU muscle imo

With gsync it doesn't matter if a GPU is "enough"
That being said, some of my games run at 60fps and some of them run at 144fps (the max on the PG278Q), while I do think gsync is necessary because the 1070 "isn't enough" to hit 144fps all the time, I also think that 60hz is a waste of your 1070, even at 1440p
1070 can max any game at 1440p at 60fps. Its more than a "1080p card" (not that I've ever heard anybody call it that, everyone I see praises it as the best 1440p card to buy)

since the GPU is dieing on me and the motherboard has an history of eating ram sticks on channel A for no reason.

1440p is almost twice as much pixels as 1080p. How is that "marginally"? The jump from 1080p to 1440p is similar to 1440p to 4k. It comes down to what size monitor you want, really. 1440p at 25-27" is perfect. 4k at 27" isn't worth it.

Which one should I go with /g/?

I will be running Lakka live off of a USB so no internal storage drive is needed.

Sure there is a huge price difference but having a modular PC would be much more economic in the future if something were to fail in either. It would also be much more useful having modular parts if I were to re purpose them individually or as a whole.

Pros/ Cons:

The NUC's GPU is about 25% more powerful.
The ITX build's CPU is about 4x more powerfull.
The NUC is about $150 cheaper (inc shipping)
The ITX has better cooling
Note: A 120W PSU is included in the ITX case.

Could be vibrations into the microphone?

A while back a few friends of mine got stoned and chilled around the back of one of their houses. One of my mates got out his Go-Pro and recorded our conversations, the camera was in its mount on the table.

The table was made out of glass. I saw my friend again the next day, and we watched the vid he recorded.

Every small vibration into the table, putting a glass down, tapping fingers, placing hands on the table to stand up even, were all picked up by the Go-Pros microphone and amplified a 100X. The conversations we had were inaudible and the whole recorded was deleted.

when do you know it's time to upgrade a part. I'm currently running a Gtx 660 and a i5-3750k. I wanna look into upgrading to a 10 series gtx but I don't know if I'd need to upgrade my motherboard or CPU as well.

>> No.58953993


A 10 series will fit in the same PCI-E slot as the 660.

You can find this out by looking up the Bus Standard of the GPU you want and then looking up your motherboard model and seeing if it supports the same.

In regards to upgrading your CPU, if you overclock it 20-25% it will be fine for another 2 years if you're into high/ ultra shit.

FX is not bad for gaming or even everyday use but most games see that hyper threaded weak ass pentium as just a 2 core CPU still. If ANYONE is buying a fake quad core in 2017 even if it is "cheap" you are getting fucked. The FX series may be obsolete in terms of upgrading but put it up against benchmarks not focused on IPC and it whips that pentiums ass. Besides the computer is not ONLY for gaming as I said.

There's no real airflow options there behind the motherboard, it's just an exposure to fresh air, probably best to just leave it and let the backside of the CPU have that vent

>> No.58954654

Side vents are best left as vents unless you have a serious, consistent, unidirectional aerodynamic in your case.
You want to suck the air in and launch the air out, side vents with fans tend to fuck all this up and either let hot air build up in the case or detract seriously from the CPU cooler
Combined with the fact that this is a side vent BEHIND the motherboard, just don't fuck with it
