Hey, I'm a scrub when it comes to computers, but I got (what i think) is a good deal on a EVGA 1060 6gig SC (300 dollars even, new).

I'm upgrading from a Radeon HD 7950, and was wondering if investing into a 120hz or a 144hz would be worth it as well. I play CSGO and whatever else usually hot on steam.

and don't buy a cpu now ryzen 2000 series comes out in like a month

Mostly faggotry but what impact does ryzen 2000 series have on this build? I picked intel because they're shown to out perform ryzen on games because of game's reliance on heavily loading 1-2 cores. What would a new ryzen cpu do differently? Is there any evidence supporting him or is just more faggotry like the rest of his reply?

Unless you already bought a GPU any game you play is going to be shit no matter the CPU
the reason he recommended a ryzen 2000 is because it has really good integrated graphics that blows anything intel has out of the water
it is also much cheaper
also games don't need an ssd get a 250 or 500gb SSD then a big HDD for games or other programs that don't need to load anything super fast
other than that watercooling is a meme
and you probably don't need a 850W PSU

I got an old Radeon 7850, which performs about as good as the ryzen 2400g. I planned on using that untill GPU prices drop.

>also games don't need an ssd get a 250 or 500gb SSD then a big HDD for games or other programs that don't need to load anything super fast
I still got a "WD Blue 1TB SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch Desktop Hard Drive (WD10EZEX)", you think that would work fine?

>other than that watercooling is a meme
The only reason I picked that was because every forum/reddit post/reply from anon suggested either the Noctua (which looks like aids) and the dark rock pro 3 which is apparently the most ass backwards thing to install in existence. If you have any recommendations that'll work with my case and are plain looking I would appreciate it.

if you don't download a bunch of games at a time then stick with the 1TB but still reduce the SSD size since its fucking expensive for no good reason
unless you want to waste money anyways

For cooler you can buy different colored fans for the noctua or go with a different cooler in general but I don't have much experience there

they can also cause issues with VRM temp if you aren't careful

Well do you wanna box yourself in? If you eventually upgrade why not have the extra hz lying around?

It's a two inch difference, ultrawide doesn't always suggest a specific resolution over 2560, but does it in this case? or are both the same res?

If they're both the same res and only differ in two inches and higher hz I would go with the higher hz. Both are massive and anything over 32 for a monitor starts to just blur.

You'll have the monitor for a long time, and you'll be able to buy more and more graphics processing power for cheaper, so eventually you'd be able to hit 144FPS in games where you'd want to (fast paced or insta-kill games) even if you can't now. If the Ultrawide is 100Hz, I wouldn't really worry about refresh rate between the two. Personally I'd say 34" is too big for 1440p (27" is better >>64877242), but the real question is which aspect ratio you want, 16:9 or 21:9.

Okay, I've made some adjustments to the home theater/CAD/simulation build I was planning. Aside from the over the top case (it's going on top of the entertainment center, it had better look good), and the tiny ssd (I have a 30 tb external hard drive already), is there anything else I probably shouldn't be doing? I picked the graphics card because Solidworks can take advantage of it but a. I'm probably not going to use that if I can't avoid paying for it and b. the card is kinda expensive.

I am kinda concerned about using non-ECC RAM, but I don't know if using DDR4-2400 is going to be noticeably worse than DDR4-3200, especially if I do decide to play games on this thing.

Hey guys, Im new to pc building and Im planning to build a budget gaming rig.

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor ($209.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Motherboard: MSI - B350M GAMING PRO Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($101.99 @ Amazon Canada)
Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($131.31 @ Newegg Canada)

Case: Fractal Design - Define Mini C with Window MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($99.99 @ Amazon Canada)
Power Supply: SeaSonic - S12II 520W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($64.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Total: $665.26

I mainly plan on using this build to play Dota 2. I do have a bit of concerns though, as far as I can tell, Dota 2 is a much more CPU dependent game. I'm wondering if the CPU power of the Ryzen 5 2400G will be able to offer steady and smooth FPS during heated moments in game. I have no doubt that the integrated graphics will make everything look pretty.

I'm mainly looking for 720p, 60 FPS, and at least medium to high settings on Dota 2.

Any one have any thoughts or criticisms about my build?

>> No.64883633

Ah, cheers. Can't complain for the price. You'd get comparable performance to a current lower end gay-men console with the benefits of a PC. Still, B350 if you could stretch and allow a bit of overclocking headway, especially on the integrated graphics side of things.

>> No.64883647

If the PSU is 240W, that's the total amount of power you have to play with. Still I don't think you have to be worried.

28" is a good size, but I wouldn't drop money on a 4K monitor right now. Low refresh and no HDR10 yet

Long time /k/-fag here. Was looking to build a PC to run games like Arma III and a few flight sims. I found an old PC at my dad's place. It posted and runs fine, so I put a copy of Windows on it. It's running an i7-3770 and 8GB of RAM. After some googling, it seems the best graphics cards for the money is the GTX1050. My question is, would this be a good purchase? I only want average settings, 1080p, and atleast 30 FPS stable. Also, what's the difference between the "base" model and Ti?

>> No.64883901

That's a decent processor, should be good for running a reasonably CPU intensive game.
A GTX 1050 should do the job on reasonably high settings if not ultra, so chuck in that GPU and you should be good to go.
I'd also look at getting a small SSD and upgrading to 16gb of RAM if you can afford it (sell off your current 8GB), DDR3 is a little more reasonably priced than DDR4 at least.

Was thinking of doing an ITX rig with an i9(fan noise is not an issue) or just getting one of those guitar center rackmounts and building a bigger more beefier ATX case in it so all I gotta do to deploy my workstation is slide the box over to a desk and plug it in(power, ethernet, probably-wireless keyboard and mouse, and monitor, no sound but available if needed).

I figure with the rackmount I could stuff a lot more in for the size(drives, gpus, UPS, etc).

anyone else have experience with this? How is easy getting a guitar center case like pic related through an airport for check-in luggage. I figure actual bands and musicians probably fly all around the world with these things anyways so they are probably optimized for travel already. Any insight?

Newb here, working on my first build. Want to use it for gaming, engineering programs (going to school for env eng), VM work, possibly some video/photo editing, also planning a small home studio in the future (recording guitar, keyboard, etc..)

Pic related is what I have so far. A few things I'm curious about:
1. Looking at coolers I'm trying to decide between the noctua nh-u12s or the dark rock 3. I hate the look of the noctua and with this case I will have a glass side so want it to look decent but I heard someone in this thread talking about difficulties installing the dark rock 3? Can anyone elaborate? Any other good options?
2. What kind of RAM should I be looking for? I am going to start with 8gb but will upgrade to 16gb as soon as I can afford to. Should I get 3200 or is 3000 ok? The mobo says it supports up to 2666 without OC but I don't know anything about OC'ing.
3. What kind of monitor would be good for this build? I've been eyeing the XF270HU but I'm not too familiar as I've always used a laptop...
4. My budget was around $1200-1300 USD and with GPU prices this is over by a few hundred, thinking about building without the 1070 and just using integrated graphics until prices drop, is it worth waiting?

Prices prolly won't drop until bitcoin miners move on.

What game are you playing which makes you want a 1070 but at the same time runs just fine on integrated "until upgraded"? You may as well just buy in your price range.

Also you should probably buy 2x4 GB of memory, not 1x8, because then you get the advantage of dual channel. Only get 1x8 if you are planning on upgrading to 32 GB in the future.

AMD's APUs have a GPU in them, it's basically integrated graphics, but with some actual performance.

Having a 1060 is going to be better performance. A Ryzen 5 2400G would be about comparable to the setup you posted except replacing the 1060 with a 1030.

As for the setup you put together, why does it have a sound card? You could remove that for a better PSU and a Ryzen 5 1600.

it have to set it to 1.38v so that it "droops" down to 1.37 (or lower) during prime95 or another stress test. My motherboard only has two settings for LLC, "auto" and "mode 1". Mode1 is elevated LLC, and it's already enabled. I've read online this board has a really shit vrm. It's not terribly hot to the touch, so i don't think it's overheating.

hwinfo64 shows Core 0 of my cpu hardly runs or doesn't run at all in prime 95. The package can be 80c but core 0 will read 42c and ~5% or 0.

The vdroop is a little worse than I said above, 1.38v down to 1.3645ish, which is annoying because I wanted to shoot for 4.7ghz at 1.375, meaning I'd have to set it at an uncomfortable 1.39v for it to droop down to my target Vcore.
If you've installed the IO shield properly, shove the IO ports into their cutouts and use that to line it up with the standoffs. If you have to, get a second person to install a screw in one of the standoffs while you hold the board. I've never had to do this, because I don't have chimp hands, but it might work for you.

>> No.64886639

The IO shield seems to be in properly and the motherboard lines up with it just fine

First off, that kit is likely not B-die, it's a dice roll. Why don't you get a g.skill kit which are always b-die? Such as the F4-3200C15D-16GVK.

> Should I be GUARANTEED at this point in time (with latest BIOS) to get 3000 Mhz?

No. Did you not read what i said? The IMC is only made to support 2666 officially, anything beyond that is luck of the draw. BUT, it is still very likely that you can do 2933-3466 if you buy a good kit. And that has to be one of the last kits i'd go for on Ryzen.

Thinking about upgrading from my current potato that's Win10, AMD Athlon II X2 250, 2.75 usable ram, 64 bit
I have roughly $1500 saved up for this, and I'm trying to decide whether to get a prebuilt with 16 gigs, 1tb storage and get it from my local best buy and get the god-tier warranty geek squad offers, or if I should get a custom build
The two prebuilts I'm looking at cost $1,799.99 and $1,149.99, and the only difference seems to be that one has a 240 gb ssd, and the other a 120. Would it make much of a difference if my ssd was 120 if I'm just planning on playing skyrim/darksouls/tf2/rocketleague, etc? I'm not looking to run ultra settings, I just want my game to not look like n64 or run like an obese geriatric

I will add one as soon as good options are available again. I chose the motherboard because it is the only motherboard I know of that does not need to be updated to run Ravenridge CPUs. I chose the RAM cause it is "made for Ryzen" although it is not on the QVL list of the mb.
