Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor

The average person gets along just fine on two cores. /g/ was happy with having four. Then Ryzen comes along with its dogshit clocks so AMD added moar corez to compensate. Now /g/ thinks Ryzen is a godsend when in reality all its done is cemented AMD's placement in the low end/poorfag market.

The way Ryzen is built, what we got was the worst possible outcome for Ryzen. And it still managed to beat Intel, even if each core was less powerful. Zen 2 is getting a major IPC boost and better overclocking because there is nowhere for Ryzen to go but up.

Covfefe Lake doesn't support win7, does it?

>> No.62409232

It aint an issue for me. I use Win10.

should I replace my 7700k soon with coffee lake lads?
Will it be a compatibility hassle and require a new mobo?

>> No.62409274

It will, but even if it didn't, it wouldn't be worth it unless you could sell your 7700K at a reasonable price.

>> No.62409287

no, not officially
no, only thing you should be looking at is zen 2/whatever intel drops after covfefe

Get over yourself and get a CH6. It's future proof as fuck, you won't regret it.
Also agree with you about 1700x, being one of those 3.7ghz losers.

I have two intakes, and one exhaust in the back.

What are some good small-ish monitors?
Want to get a second monitor but I don't think my desk could fit another 24" one.

>> No.62410901

Help me decide (I'm coming from 720 fucking p):

1080p = Asus 144hz monitor + gtx 1060 6gb = $3127
1440p = Asus 165hz monitor + gtx 1070 = $4140
2160p = Asus 60hz monitor + gtx 1080 ti = $4130

Is 4k worth right now or should i wait for gtx 2xxx series and better 4k monitors?

>> No.62410954

Fuck forgot to say that that's the whole system including peripherals

Also i don't live in the states so that's why the price

>> No.62411091

How are you spending that much? 4k will be a meme to me as long as it doesn't reach 144hz so I'd go with either 1080p 1070 or 1440p 1080 Ti.
