>> No.67087383

it varies from card to card. You need to be more specific with what model you want. If you really care just get a 3rd party cooler and replace it. Overall I'd say it doesn't matter much just get whatever is the cheapest

>18ms input lag

Any reason I shouldn't use it as a pc gaming monitor? A 1080ti barely provides 4K60fps on highest settings, and I don't see myself dumping money on their next gen stuff that *might* do better than 4K60fps. The only obvious downside is no FreeSync/GSync - but if I manage to stay above 60fps then I should be fine.
Too bad those 4 Opterons are outperformed by a single 1950x Threadripper... It is no longer worth it to build a PC from used server parts since Zen made them obsolete.

Hope this isn't a dumb question but how do I know a GPU is better than another if they're from the same line? There's so many different and they all seem similar to me, I guess the difference is in the cooler?

>> No.67087491

there are some benchmarks. Honestly there are so many it's all just meme shit. They basically all perform within a few fps of each other.
Just check youtube and you can find some that record fps/temps/fan db noise etc, but it doesn't don't matter that much it's all within like a few percent of each other

>> No.67087507

If they are the exact same GPU from different providers (ex. 1050ti from MSI vs 1050ti from Gigabyte) then literally check all spec numbers, and read reviews on newegg to learn about build quality and more. The latter is more improtant than the 5 fps you will save from spec differences.

It's not tho.
The sentiment is usually
>4k would be nice if it were 75hz bare minimum

Difference is mostly the cooler. Slight difference in binning.
The cooler is a big difference, though. It's one of the main components that ensures the GPU lasts a long time. And loud coolers are annoying, right..?

You can tell if one is good mostly by the density of the fins, number of heat pipes. It says that right in the OP
>Avoid cheap models ie MSI Armor (Mk2 is ok), Gigabyte G1/Wf, ASUS duals, and others which have small heatsinks and low quality fans
Maybe it could be worded better.

You don't need to get the highest end for a decent cooler, but you should avoid the absolute garbage lowest end like those.

The first is a fuckload more expensive, and mATX so comfier case options.
As for the later, that motherboard is NOT sufficient to overclock a 6 core. It's doesn't even look decent for overclocking a fucking 8350k.
Z370 is riddled with shitty boards that are supposedly for overclocking since they have that chipset, but have horrendous VRMs.
They assume most retards who buy a 8700k won't overclock anyway, which is true, but it still comes off as false advertising to me.

Huge shame on Intel for not requiring board partners who use their Z370 chipset to supply at least a 4*2 or 5 phase vcore with it.

>> No.67087634

Up to you. They will probably be more expensive for like a 20-30% upgrade over the 10 series, months away, and sell out fast.
I'd just actually search for a deal daily now while many cards are being dumped because everyone else is waiting. What is your budget on gpu? You could easily get a 580 8gb or 1060 6gb for right about $200. Get an even better card if you want to pay more

imo not waiting for new gen is actually retarded. even if it's more expensive it doesn't matter, what matters is price/performance. also the moment new gen is out you'll have loads of used nvidia users selling their cards just to get their new hot thing AND shops will try to get rid of their pascal stock.

ASUS Prime Z-370A is is $165.
ASRock Z370 Extreme4 is $155 after rebate
MSI Z370M Gaming Pro is $160 though it's a 3*2 it's probably decent enough.

I'm not really seeing anything cheaper than those that are worth getting for an 8700k.
You don't just buy a CPU that sucks that much power and pair it with a cheap board.

The whole industry has really gotten their price fixing together and going strong. I don't think this is very true.

We saw a massive price drop on RX400 cards, with $95-$115 RX470s, to make way for RX580s.
But despite the 1100 series seemingly immanent and coming in around a month it looks like, most of the cards are still very expensive except for refurbished ones.

Nvidia will just sit on stock and wait until Pascal is almost sold out before they announce the $550+ 1170 and $750+ 1180.

Core counts and clock speeds. And power consumption.

back to *eddit please. the heatsink difference is few C at most since both mobos have a mostly-solid-block of garbage with no fins. and yeah they DO have the same VRMs. tomahawk has the gaymer tax with rgbs and shit do not fall for it.

in the last month i've seen bundles happening like 'free 240gb ssd with gtx1060'. that's their last resort before having to cut prices.

Hi. Please review this build.

What I'm looking out of it: gaming on high/ultra at 2560 x 1440, some very crude and basic photo video editing.
Why I picked AMD: I consider myself to be a poor person so this project will be a massive investment for me so future-proofing, as much as it's a thing, is very important to me.

Thank you.

Just google it, mate. Basically you can make the speed of your component go faster, or up/lower voltage going to it that affects temperature.

>> No.67088260

hey, we were all new so its cool

overclocking is basically overcharging the inner clock of a component, it could be the cpu or the graphics card. when you 'overclock' a component you make its inner clock spin faster thus confusing its time awareness and it makes the component work faster. the way you overclock is basically opening up your case, choosing the component to overclock and then unscrewing it just enough to reveal the inner clock of the component, you then use tweezers or a similar tool to manually spin the clock hammer forward in time (but not too much otherwise it will overwork the component) to your desired frequency. you need strong cooling for this so you should get an aftermarket cooler. hope i helped.

Hell, even if you don't, you more than likely have a TV and an existing console controller. If you're really a faggot who doesn't already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse, you can use those.

You might want to consider replacing it once the warranty has expired, but definitely not before.

And higher efficiency = less heat, less noise or both. Platinum/titanium aren't really worth the money, though, unless you really just want the best PSU you can get or are spending thousands of dollars anyway.

Due to a motherboard failure I'm planning to rebuild the desktop I originally put together in mid 2011. I was planning to get a new case but I have to ask... why are all the cases on the market nowadays so boring? It seems like they're all just the same rectangular slab design. Whatever happened to the crazy, unique-looking cases and the bizarre designs? I have a Thermaltake Level 10 GT, love this case, but was hoping to sell it and find something new and interesting. No luck. Almost everything that's readily available kind of looks the same, and the more unique cases are hard to get and somewhat affordable ($400+). I'm probably going to end up keeping my existing case. Why did everything get so lame and conservative over the past couple years?

I would say that two things happened which both worked towards killing these gaymery case designs. First of all, millenials matured. I used to have pic related "back in the day", when I did my first custom build in 2012. When I had it put together and all lit up, my first thoughts were "this thing is fucking AWESOME". But over the years, as I graduated university and then went out to get a job and buy a condo, my opinion shifted to "this thing is fucking STUPID". I couldn't stand it anymore, so earlier this year I bought a Thermaltake Versa C23 and sold the Syclone to a literal 8-year-old. I am sure a lot of people have had a similar shift in taste as they aged from their early to late 20s, they want a more "mature" looking case.

Second of all, Gen Z is now a major purchaser of PC components, and they don't like these busy case designs. They're used to everything being polished and subdued, so they kind of want their computer cases to be the same. Going for dat minimalist look. And of course, people who are older than millennials never bought these cases in the first place. So yeah there is really no market to support the "unique" designs you crave, unless you go for expensive specialist crap.

Not a good model, similar to the Dual, but for 250 aud you can't beat that.
Worst case, you could replace the cooler.

I mean it's not worth the price at all, no. It's like a 1% perf increase. It costs way more than 1% more.

Thermal throttle is around 70°C for your PC. Regardless of what others say I've seen it with my PC.
