For storage I'm probably gonna go with the Intel 660p. I know it gets shit on constantly here but It is more than good enough for my usecase, so its benefits far outweigh its cons. For RAM, just the cheapest 2x8 or 2x16 3200mhz CL16. With ram prices dropping, might splurge on the 32GB to not have to worry until DDR5 is very mainstream.

I like how you leave out the 2060 OC, that is far more quiet, far less power draw, outperforms the vega undervolt overclock.
Yet you take the price of 2070 instead to compare to the vega and make it look better.
All the while ignoring the 2060 that has a better price and beats the vega 56 undervolt/OC.

On average Vega 56 sits somewhere between GTX 1070 / GTX 1660ti and GTX 1070ti / RTX 2060. Sure, there are some games where it can perform better but it mostly trades blows with 1070 / 1660ti. I don't know from where you get your source data indicating Vega 56 can compete with RTX 2070.

Found a really good 850w (used for 1 yr) psu with 9 years left on the unclaimed warranty.

My build only requires a 500w psu, but the new 500-ish watt PSUs (new, and of the same tier) are the exact same price as this used 850w unit.

Should I buy the 850w unit?

Both kits of RAM are validated for that speed out of the box using XMP Profiles. However, by pushing more voltage into the ram, and then adjusting the timings, you can get better performance for the price.

NVME uses Host Memory Buffer where they use some system ram (like 2 MB) to give them a fast cache, or they have cache on the drive itself.

Good SATA drives have a small DRAM cache to boost loading times/OS speed/file fetching.

Other cheap 1TB SSDs:

NVME: Mushkin Helix-L (TLC), Intel 660p (QLC), Crucial P1 (QLC), ADATA XPG 6000 Pro (TLC), Team Group (MP34), Silicon Power (TLC).

Make sure to read the IOPS for input and output. Higher is better.

Depends what you mean but what happens is they make the technology better, so they can do more with less hardware, but at the same time yeah they do in some cases increase the amount of hardware "under the hood" in each bracket, although that might itself be due to improved production technology allowing them to do that at a lower price. For example the 2060 has the same number of cuda cores as the 1070.
>Is older high-end (at the time of release) pretty much the same as current low-end?
No, it all depends on which cards you compare, and a more typical perspective is that old cards get knocked down a peg by the card in the newer generation that's a step lower than them. In other words, when they release a new generation, it's a safe bet that the rank of the new generation will beat the rank above it in the new generation.

The whole thing more or less is chuckable if you want to get to modern standards. You might be able to keep the CPU and RAM if you want a really budget upgrade, and with those you might get a cheap mid-range AMD GPU (especially once Navi comes out and the old range go on sale) that would give you satisfactory low-end performance (although you are limited what you can get by your GPU bottleneck). Look for something mid-range at ~$200.
Your RAM could do with upgrading but little point if your CPU is so limited, and your motherboard probably might not support DDR4. 2666mhz DDR4 is the cheapest that's still "current", there's no point upgrading to anything less. ~$40 -$60
If you wanted to upgrade your CPU you would need a new motherboard with it. A 2600 with appropriate motherboard would be a dramatic step upwards.
And then you'd need to calculate your PSU and most likely replace the 350w with something higher.

So all in all you might be able to get a low end PC that's a significant upgrade from yours and also able to play 2077 at low-medium for ~$450 if you're judicious in your purchasing.

It's close to 2x the performance in newer games as the 390, and it's lower power consumption. Quite a big upgrade.
Just make sure you get the pulse, red dragon, or arez strix models. Many others have engineering/qa flaws. You can often find them for $300 or less, which is a good price for the performance.

Might be the same "AMD problems" spammer anon.

Did you forget to report him or something? I was asleep. This OP is obviously by the same ban evading spammer as 2 days ago.

What am I missing here?
Seems to confirm what that anon was saying.
Undervolted Vega 56 is super close to the 2060 and 2060 Super. It costs 25% less than the 2060 Super while on average only being 5-10% slower.

Also why the fuck are you claiming the Vega 56 beats the 2070 when the other anon never did? He said "within spitting distance" which your own mental illness collage shows. It's 33% cheaper and only 10-15% slower. It should be compared to the 2060, 2060 super, and 2060 super OC.

You're really bad at this when you constantly post sources which BTFO our own claim.

It's because they perform better in cases with terrible airflow, and cars stacked on top of each other like in a server.
But for a typical self built PC that doesn't have that problem, they're terrible.

Uh the RTX FE cards are actually good. They have a vapor chamber cooler. They're better than at least 80% of the coolers out there on current cards. They also use A-die dies.
It's hilarious that "AMD shlls" typically admit this while Nvidia shills, trying to shill cheaper models which are also crappy, don't acknowledge it. Not sure if lies, or mere ignorance.
Pascal FE cards were generally cheaper. You could find even cheaper cards like mini ones, but those could be even worse. FE were typically, in the past, bought by either idiots who don't know better who wanted to buy direct from Nvidia, or people looking to waterblock them.

7/7 or so

Get a slightly better board and PSU than that build.

Though also if you wait a bit, the 3400G is coming out which is about 10% faster, or the 2400G might be even cheaper.
2400G was down to $120 and included $40 of games like 3 weeks ago. I think that deal will come back by black friday.

b450 tomahawk or carbon ac if you need wifi.
You can maybe find the strix on sale for under $150, but make sure you remove the plastic shroud as it fucks the airflow.

It's harder, but if you lay the case on its side it's not too bad depending on the cooler mounting system and how difficult the backplate is to deal with.

the 580 red devil will technically work with only a 6+2. the card doesn't check to see if both connectors are receiving power.

at stock GPU clocks it's probably fine since 8 pin provides 150W or higher and the PCIE lane gives 75W. Those cards have a limit of around 170W in the vbios.

if you want extra power delivery you can buy a molex to a PCI-E adapter

fair warning: molex adapters can catch fire if you buy ones with cheap wire gauge. I've built many cheap computers with these molex adapters and none blew up yet but caveat emptor

>> No.71711687

also I'm not sure if I misunderstood you. if you have multiple 6+2 connectors yes you can put them into a 6

The whisper is the fully modular version. You can find the nonmodular version that has the exact same components for $10 cheaper.

Also, that is the 550w version, 80% of people, including gaymers, could use a 450w gold psu of this standard and be absolutely fine.

Uh, I mean something non-NVME/M2 like the 860 evo, which is more than €140 where I am.
By contrast I am indeed seeing 1tb NVMEs for around €105, like two different Crucial models.
Do you have a quick rundown on which type of each drive is the best? Is it as simple as all NVMEs being superior to all SATAs or is there a reason to choose SATA over NVME?

>> No.71711962

The cheapest NVME are QLC and slow down once the cache is filled. The cache also gets smaller as you fill up your drive.

Most cheap sata ones are TLC so you can use them continuously a bit longer.

Ultimately, it doesn't really matter and you can find TLC nvme +/-$10 of the SATA versions. It's just that your average consumer won't notice the difference between SATA and NVME, even though the latter can be 5x as fast (even excluding pcie 4.0 which will be like 10x as fast). So generally you should just get an NVME because why not?

If the choice was between a $100 QLC NVME and a $110 TLC one, choose the TLC.

>> No.71711963

I'm not familiar with the differences, I thought most people bought them because they were cheaper and had a smaller footprint.

SATA speeds are capped to 6 gigabit/(gigabytes?) and as you can see here people are getting over 3000 megabytes/s with this cheap m.2 since it runs on PCI-E

I didn't say the $100 premium is justified over Vega56.
Just that if you HAD to buy Nvidia, and your only choice were a 2060 with a milled heatsink for $350 or FE for $400, well you can't buy that milled heatsink garbage so you have to pay more for the better cooler.
If the 2060 Super with the FE cooler was $300, that'd also be a clear choice over Vega 56. But it's not that price.

m.2 and sata can be the same

Gb. Gigabit. It's up to 600MB/s. aka as much speed as you'll ever use when it comes to loading programs. You'll only see the difference in NVMe speed when doing 4k/8k video editing or running a heavy server.

840 evo is still fine. About the same as an SU800 IIRC. MX500 would be a bit faster if you want to add in a 1TB drive.
Or you can use the 500GB as your main drive and add on a 2TB QLC drive like the QVO or 660p.

Reasonable as in it's a noticeable upgrade worth the money. I've seen pcie4 chips have just been announced but their speed and price just don't make sense for normal use, for example.

Bequiet is a very good brand, very good. From their cases, CPU coolers, and case fans.

No one mentioned vega dude.

Also i'm not seeing any vapour chambers or particularly good performance on RTX FE that justify an increase of 100 dollars on the price. Pic related: 8° worse temps at $100 more over evga, great deal.

And your motherboard? You're on an MATX build?
It might be the size of the case. People say (with quite a bit of justification for non-overclockers) that MATX motherboards are better value than ATX boards, but at the end of the day smaller cases are more of a challenge heat physics wise. What you could do is switch up the locations of the fans you have in it at the minute and see what works. If it can work with more, consider getting more.
If your temperatures are actually fine at the minute, look at trying to set up a quieter fan curve with software if that's an option.
