I'm playing mortal shell with my 2600 and 5700 XT but i'm having to lower some settings to medium just to get 60-70fps at busier points - at 1440p.

Is my system bogged? or is the game unoptimised as fuck? Doesn't seem right to me.

>> No.77426942

probs shorted something because you were working on a carpet and the mobo didnt have a ground to the PSU as that's normally done via the io shield -> case -> psu once that' all hooked up.

RMA the mobo and next time dont stand on a fucking carpet, and touch the PSU while it's plugged into the wall (but turned off) before you touch anything else.

current GPUs dont even max out gen3 x16 pci-e slot so there's no reason to use that as some pro... the only one that could possibly matter is if they start loading game content faster after PS5 SSD changes on NVMe

How's this NVMe Drive? I plan to eventually get a 4TB Samsung one when that becomes available, which I'm hoping will be within the next two years, but I think 1TB will do the job for the time being. I just don't want to get one that sucks.

Good to hear. Thanks.

>> No.77427171

It's QLC so expect lower endurance and increased slowdown as it fills up. I would save up a little more for a TLC NVMe drive or drop it down to TLC SATA. It's fine for file storage though if you just need NVMe sequential read on a budget.

DRAMless. Will have worse performance than QLC w/ DRAM. Maybe worse endurance, too, if the firmware is constantly hammering the file table. WD probably wouldn't do that though.

Assuming you're not on some really tight budget your options are basically 60 or 144 Hz.

Personally I wouldn't bother buying a new monitor unless it's 144Hz because you might as well stick with your old one until you can save up for a good one.

>> No.77428527

SSD in RAID0 does actually make a difference over a single SSD. But it's kind of a meme for HDDs unless you want redundancy so you can lose one drive and still keep running until you can replace it.
I ran my four drives in Raid5 in my fileserver. Plus there is a smallish performance boost with Raid5 which is nice.


>> No.77428566

It depends on the purpose. For games it's really nice with higher refresh and you shouldnt be looking at one under 120hz unless you only play farmville or something.
High refresh is especially nice in fast paced games or stuff where you look around a lot quite fast.

>> No.77428596

Yeah believe it or not a lot of games don’t even benefit from ssds since a lot of games don’t actually have killer load times and actually spend its load time waiting on the CPU and gpu aswell as however the hell they programmed the engine.

Is a 27 inch 1080p monitor like the Asus VG279Q a good idea?

>> No.77428901

Some games are locked in at a specific fps, which can be tied to gameplay, but for the most part, if you have sufficient power, a higher refresh rate is always better, and downgrading to 60Hz is silly.

>> No.77428924

FPS and refresh rate is separate things. matching your FPS with the Hz is just the optimal because of how some shooter games work. You'll still notice a difference with just a higher refresh unless you're an eye-let.
Also could just turn on freesync to get rid of the ghosting shit.

1080p on anything bigger than 24" is not a good idea unless you sit far away from it, which would negate the bigger size...

Alright. Like the other dude said wait for Zen 2 APUs if you can. Maybe get a cheaper mobo. The Tomahawk is kinda overkill for a 4-core and doesn't make up for it with features. If you were doing video editing commercially I would recommend redundant storage as well. I disagree with the guy recommending define cases - you've only got 1 HDD and a £120 case on a £600 build is just silly. There's cases on the market for half the price with the same 3.5" bay count but honestly if you're going to expand beyond 2 HDDs you should probably put them on the network instead.

I am looking to upgrade from i5 2400. I am going to re use my PSU, SSDs and RX580 so basically just looking for CPU, mobo and ram.

Since I am also poorfag I was looking at r3 3100 (3300x is not available at all) with b550 mobo to slightly future proof for upcoming Zen 3.

My dilemma is that I could pick up r5 1600 for same price however I am not sure if its worth it to pick up first gen Zen these days, as I only play esports meme games and PoE/Diablo, also I could pick up b450 instead and get r5 2600 but I am not sure how much I trust AMD to support Zen 3 on b450 chipsets

What's the point in getting a B550/X570 mobo over a B450/X470 mobo? The main difference seems to be PCIe 4.0, but the only components that utilise the additional bandwidth are SSDs. And considering speeds for PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSDs aren't a massive boost compared to SATA SSDs for a lot of people's use cases, it seems like those aren't really worth it.

Some might argue it makes your build more futureproof, but AMD will be moving to the AM5 socket and DDR5 RAM within a few years. So the CPU you buy now will probably be the last AM4 CPU you buy and you won't get much upgradability from a B550/X570 mobo in that regard.

"Completely" is too strong a word IMO. A520 cuts back on software features which makes the decision murky. Additionally, and do correct me if I'm wrong, A520 will not support Zen+ APUs.

Is it worth to go for a 80's ? I heard 2080 S isn't worth it. Also should I wait for the 30xx? The 2080 would be quite an overkill for my needs, I barely play new games and even if going with medium setting is good (my main game is CSGO).

So if the 3080 is even better, but more expensive it's probably not worth it?

Needless to say it's worth checking reviews, testing, and spec sheets to make sure you're getting the features you need. Overclocking Zen 2 with ambient cooling is a fool's errand, btw. If you require the additional PCIe 4 lanes on X570 then the ASrock X570 Pro4 is probably the best you can do at under $200. Maybe the Gigabyte Aurus Elite.

get faster ram.
change case, that fucking thing has literally zero airflow.
get a slightly better mobo with decent VRM. see >>77431606

>> No.77431714

Thanks. I also found the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus to be just over 200 eurobucks, and it has a PS2 port. Maybe I'll just crank out the extra 20 for that one?

>> No.77431815

Hm, I got a nice vintage keyboard that /mkg/ would kill me for, but I'm not really using it. Apparently installing win7 is less hassle with a PS2 port (for some games that are borked via wine), but it's not unsolvable. So no, I do not need it.

Fuck me, I always hate choosing a mobo the most. Too many fine details, temperature bullshit, bios fuckery, hidden traps like m2 slots not being as fast as they should. But thanks for all the advice!

>> No.77431841

if you get x570 then all m2 slots are as fast as they should be.

Awesome! But don't their discounts require building a full system with what they have in stock?

It's glass, terrible thermals. Most of your choices are good. Your ssd has no cache. I would recommend 3600 MHz memory. Aside from that looks great.

Where should I make some trimming for this build to shave off like $30-$50 for this upcoming GTX 3080 build. I'm coming from an I5-6500 (really old dinosaur CPU at this point) x 1060 6GB combo.

Swap 3800x for 3700x unless the price difference is $20 or less. IIRC its literally less than 10% gains in performance and not worth the money. Everything else looks fine to me, I would skip the HDD and try to save a bit more and get 2tb in flash storage, but obviously thats up to you and wont affect perf much considerings its just a storage drive presumably.

>> No.77432298

That's what I'm doing. His internet is fine in theory, though if the game doesn't have the ability to cache areas it may be an issue because he wants to put it in a property out in kinda the middle of nowhere. It does have internet but I suspect that it sucks (relative to good internet in the area, it still may be plenty fast).I'll see when I get the PC setup with it.
If not I'll just try and get him addicted to doom or some shit.

AMD confirmed that they would be releasing something but used intentionally vague language and as far as I know, haven't specified if they meant ryzen desktop chips or epyc server chips or any of their other products. This was at least 2 months ago if memory serves. Maybe I missed where they specified

3700 and 3800 is exactly the same cept one has higher boost from factory.... you can easily close the gap with some minor tweaking of the BIOS.

Should I buy a real SSD like a 970 evo instead of sticking with a WD Green 1TB SSD?

>> No.77432361

desu if I were you and wanting to do a build before the year was up, i'd look into a ryzen 3300x or a used 2600, and just sell that chip off when ryzen4k is actually released. Used 2600 should run you less than $100 and itsn't going to be a major enough bottleneck to care about if you're only using it for the next few months.

>> No.77432375

if that's your main OS drive and you have the money to spare, i would. I would only use a DRAM-less drive with low endurance as secondary storage that i never rewrite such as steam game library and such.

For sure pass on that WD green. If your budget is strict, the HP EX920 1tb is a better choice at roughly the same cost.

>> No.77432446

If someone's buying A520 they're probably going to get a zen3 APU if they're going the APU route. If not, the 3100 provides such a nice budget entry level option that someone can then upgrade to a 6 or 8 core zen3 in the future. B450 still has a market, but the currently fucked prices for the 2600 and 1600af are fucking it.

Looking for answers from people who aren't gaming, windows using faggots.

Is ryzen actually worth it? I see that people always side step the problem that ryzen is not always stable, I am guessing this is because gamers are used to w10 fucking them over and dont' care. Especially amd users

I'm looking for perspectives from people who call their pc a workstation, who do actual work with huge loads on their system, whether it be compiling C or virtual machines.
