Thinking about an i5 4460s to go with my new r9 280x to replace my Pentium g3260
S because reading up on it, a regular 4460 is only about 1-3% better in performance while using significantly less power and making less heat
Still a quad core, which is the important part here

>r9 290




>> No.57153697

An R9 290 to a 390X makes no sense. You either go with the Fury X (as long as it's under $500) or go with an Nvidia GTX1070.
If your motherboard supports it, swap to the Ivy Bridge i7. You may need to check the heatspreader for any signs of previous detaching or damage to the PCB. Some overclockers delidded their i7-3570K/3770K because the thermal paste Intel used sucked shit through a Big Gulp straw and may have damaged their CPUs in the process.

>> No.57153749

well, in games like BF1, a 390x can get up to 20% more fps, and a 390x is only $100 more than what I can sell my 290 for

and 3770k is obviously my preferred CPU upgrade, as it'll give me near 6700k performance (overclocked vs stock), at half the cost, but yeah, the only ones I've found have been delidded

are there many games that are CPU limited? my 2500k is at 4.5GHz

>> No.57153808

I bought a used pre-built workstation that had a i7-3770K that still worked. You might need to scavenge or search harder for non-delidded CPUs. That is if you don't trust delidded i7s.
Generally, if they work after the delid, you can put liquid metal paste between the heatspreader and the silicon for near-soldering level heat conductivity rather than risking a delid yourself.

There is a very good reason why Ivy Bridge got the delid treatment from serious overclockers (and why the "delidding = better temps" meme came from). The stock TIM was so bad that it was near impossible to get close to 4.5GHz without hitting a thermal wall.

You don't know what you're fucking looking at. That's the 6GB version, which has 10% more CUDA cores than the 3GB. The 3GB version doesn't just have less RAM, it's a cut down chip, and it's boost and base clockspeeds are also lower than the 6GB version.

Clearly (in the best DX11 game for benchmarking) the 6GB 1060 is approximately equal to the 480.

Ergo, the 3GB 1060 would be significantly slower than the 480 in TW3 (as it is in general).

I just don't fucking know. Now in addition to being sleep deprived tomorrow I get to look forward to my PC being a brick. I've always managed to have some kind of funky luck and my builds have had little to no major problems, nothing on this scale. I don't know if it's the PSU or the motherboard that suddenly decided to die, and I don't know that I have the budget or resources to work out where the problem lies. I got the PSU at the same time as the mobo, it's a solid 750W 80+ certified reputable brand so I know it isn't a matter of not being able to handle the card

What to upgrade?

I have a G3258 (overclocked to 3.8GHz) and a 750 Ti, both of which are beginning to feel kind of bothersome. I really want to be sure that my build is future-proof, which probably means buying a Z170 mobo and CPU as well as GPU, but I'm not sure if I have the cash to do all three?

What do, /g/? Should I buy the mobo/CPU (if so, which) or the GPU (if so, which)? Lets say I have a budget of something just over $200 USD

>> No.57155746

For games it will be, for multitasking, video editing, whatever it's not really worth switching considering that you have to buy new mobo and ram too. If you're only gaming, get the 6600k, or wait for Kaby and Zen.

Hey guys, so about four years back I built this system, I mainly used the Logical Increments page at the time.
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
i5-2500 (Sandy Bridge IIRC)
8gb RAM
2x 1TB drives
750 Ti (upgrade from a year back when the original ATI card failed)

And I'm wondering what you all would suggest for upgrades, since it's starting to run into trouble with newer games like BF1 and Doom.

Obviously the main avenue would be a SSD and more RAM, but I'm not sure as to the upgrade process for the SSD, unhook the old drives, reinstall windows on the SSD and then hook the old ones back up and remove the old Windows install and system files?

As to RAM, is it worth getting a matching set of new sticks or could I just hunt down the same brand and model and add in a couple more?

Also, if I wanted to upgrade the processor, would I benefit from going to a newer i5 or should I just go straight to a i7? And do you need to do a system reinstall for this? (if it's even possible? I don't see anything on the motherboard specs page indicating it's only limited to the Sandy Bridge series and older)

Apologies if these are noob questions, I don't do upgrades or get to tinker with computer stuff that often for financial reasons. This computer was replacing a 2006 vintage CAD computer with a AGP (!) port that I inherited. I remember playing Fallout 3 at 800x600 with everything set to minimum and the side of the case off to keep it cooler so it wouldn't lock up every 30 minutes when the video card overheated.

>> No.57155886

Also I've got a crummy 19 inch Acer monitor that predates this system and I'm continually running into trouble with having to force games to run at 59.99Hz or they get this weird inverse-letterboxing that cuts the sides of the screen off. Suggestions for a replacement screen? I want to get in on this 720p/1080p/4k bandwagon.

>> No.57155932

Obviously, yes! In lightly-threaded applications, the performance jump will be huge. Maybe double the performance? Check the reviews and see. For multi-threaded application, the 8350 is still an 8-core CPU, so it will not be as big a jump, but the 6700K will still win by a large margin.

>> No.57155937

Sadly, if I remember correctly the most you could get for the motherboard would be 3rd gen...

Your best two upgrades would be an SSD and a new graphics card. The 750 Ti is now considered a low-tier, not mid-tier any more.

HDDs are slower than SSDs. With your budget, you can easily get a 500GB SSD, and put your OS, programs and games there, and leave your movies/series/anima on the HDD. OS/programs benefit from SSD speeds, Breaking Bad does not.

>> No.57157880

Indeed. Comparing a Gold efficiency 1500W unit vs a Gold efficiency 550W unit, if your typical load is a light 150-250W, then the 550W unit will be better.

...slightly. We are talking a few percentage points.

760 is 3 generations old, but it is still decent. Roughly comparable to a modern ~$120 GPU, so you can play all modern games on medium settings. If you are playing the latest CrysisTheft AutoWitcher 7, then you are not going great FPS with a 760. For upgrading in the futre: For 1080p gaming, the modern gamer who has $200 for a graphics card is actually very lucky. A modern $200 card can play all modern AAA titles very well at 1080p.

flicker free is not a meme, most monitors reduce brightness by switching the backlight on and off rapidly, you can check this by taking a picture of the screen with a white line moving across it during the exposure, or look at a fan illuminated by the screen I guess

50/50 at best

that's not how PSU efficiency works.

graphics cards and CPUs are becoming more efficient every year so there is little chance you need a beefier PSU in the future

noctua is good but slightly more expensive because of their long warranty fans.
if you want something similar but cheaper check out the Scythe FUMA.
almost everything will fit if you dont have an ITX or slim case.

m.2 is still overpriced IMO, you get similar performance and more space with regular SSDs in RAID.
i hope you're not buying that GTX 970 new, it should be way below $200 to be worth it over a gtx 1060 or rx 480.

I have a client who wants to build three computers for his media work: one for gaming, one for streaming and recording, and one for converting the recording to HEVC.
His planned dataflow is this:
>HDMI from GTX 1080 to BlackMagic Intensity
>Stream to Twitch/Record to RAID0 array (4x Crucial MX300 1.1TB on a SAS hardware RAID card)
>Saved recording goes to HEVC encoder via the 10Gig ethernet port
>Video is compressed and saved onto a 2x 4TB HDD JBOD array in a ZFS pool
>Video on Stream/Recording PC is edited in its native format and saved directly to another 2x 4TB HDD (+2 850 PRO RAID0 SSD cache) ZFS array
>HEVC converter will then read from the second array and convert the finished video directly to a third 2x 4TB HDD ZFS array

His gaming machine will be pretty straight-forward, an i5-6600K/Z170 with a GTX 1080

His stream/recording/post-production machine

His HEVC converter/File Server
Note that it share one of the non-IPS monitor with the Streaming/Recording PC and keyboard+mouse as well via the KVM switch.

142 isn't that good for a used i5, especially considering that is a low power variant. Do you have to stick with FC LGA 1150 or can you use regular LGA CPUs?

Yes but you already have 8 threads. Unless it's for work, no real reason to upgrade yet.

You also have that FCLGA socket, can you use regular LGA 1150 CPUs? If so just upgrade in steps.

1) Get a used non-S i5 if your socket supports it
2) Upgrade your graphics to 1050Ti or better.

Is your current rig a prebuilt? Give model number, post speccy, PSU specs, etc

Some games like The Witcher 3 don't even run on a two thread CPU. According to rumors, even Pentiums will now come with four threads starting with Intel's next CPU lineup, Kaby Lake. He could keep the G series CPU, but Haswell i5s are plenty. He can even get a used i7 later when he needs the if his board supports the CPU.

If your CPU is an i5 2500K overclock it
Upgrade graphics card. 470, 480, or 1060 for 1080p if your PSU has a six or eight pin PCIe power connector. (Power requirements differ between cards. Reference RX only require a six pin but aftermarkets usually require eight.)
If you don't have PCIe power connectors, get a 1050Ti when it is released in a week.

You can buy a used 23" - 25" 1080p 60Hz monitor off craigslist for $50 easily.

An SSD would be nice but isn't required if you can't be fucked to reinstall Windows. If you're planning to refresh your OS anyway, pick up a 240GB budget SSD.

>I want 120fps @ 1080p though, and I'm not sure whether that's possible with a 1070.
Depends on the game, with many it's no problem, Overwatch for example.

a/c is faster and involves the 5GHz band. That wireless card can only use the 2.4GHz band. If you don't know what that means then the card you already selected is right for you (the $15 one).

With the B150 you can add more RAM later if you want to upgrade the build, and they're approximately the same price as the H110.

It isn't gonna be perfect due to the scaling your monitor will use (usually bicubic or something)
But it will still be good only a bit less sharp than you would obviously be used to using the 2160p resolution for nongame things.
If you are going to downscale a lot, consider a monitor size closer to what you would normall use at that resolution, like 17" 900p, 23" 1080p, 27" 1440p, etc

The only reason to get 1440p over 2160p would be for price limits or the excessively high refresh rate meme when your average gpus struggle to do 1440p 60fps let alone 120-144fps.
And if you are going to scale games why not just get 2160p anyway so that the rest of your desktop environment can look much nicer for the rest of the time you use the computer?

People who already own a decent 1080p screen should not even bother considering 1440p because 2160p has dropped in price enough to make it worth considering over 1440p for a noticable upgrade in resolution is what I mean.
Only reason I might consider 1440p at all would be for some 144hz + async meme, which isn't really there for 2160p at a reasonable price level yet. Normal screens though I'd go 2160p no hesitation.

If you have 144Hz you don't get screen tearing unless you're over 144Hz, which is rare unless you're playing CSGO. The good thing about Gsync or Freesync is that the game still looks good with the sync on down to about 35FPS.

You can use adaptive sync with a capable 60Hz monitor but only with Vsync off so you have to set a driver framerate target of about 58 to avoid tearing.

In general 144Hz monitors are better because you don't have to worry about any of that stuff. Hence why you don't know about any of this

Smooth motion is a plus, and it's easier to get on a 144Hz, but screen tearing is intolerable.

Might get the EVGA BQ then or is it a bad idea?
A SuperNOVA G2 is 50% more and a GS is almost twice the price.

This IBM Lenovo just arrived. Underrated as fuck.

>> No.57163858

The reason for that is in the psu quality.
The gq, formerly G1, contains parts that are considered inferior to that of the G2 and the GSilent.
They are still reasonable quality and scored decently in a review, but do take noticeable shortcuts compared to its successors.

Whoops thought you said gq not bq.

You should check out the jg review of that specific wattage of bq that you want then if one exists.
The higher end evga psus are made by superflower and seasonic. You should see who makes the bq series and if they have any reputation for quality.

>They will be built by HEC too, in their main factory at Weishuo Electronics.

>> No.57164077

Followup again,
I checked jg myself after saying that, and the only bq review was for the 750w model.
While quality does not usually differ too drastically among same titled psus, it can be different for different wattage models.

The 750w model in this case, scored an 8.1/10.

According to EVGA, only the mainboard of the psu has japanese quality capacitors in the bq650, and the fan is a 140mm steel bearing type.

As >>57164054 pointed out,
The manufacturer pf the bq is not the same as the ones for the PSUs that EVGA are known for.

For Battlefield 1 I heard AMD GPUs are better optimised and they run DX12 properly. So I was thinking RX 470 for 1080p on ultra? Does it pay off to go for 480 I dont know.

And 6300 i3 or FX8300?

>> No.57164246

Don't get old amd CPUs when zen is around the corner

>> No.57164328

480 is good, 470 is also good but probably won't do ultra, and he's talking about CPUs not gpus, zen is probably gonna rock some shit but you'd need a new motherboard as well for that

>> No.57164451

I know I misunderstood, i deleted it heh. Yeah I'll go with intel.

And 1060 is 30€ cheaper than 480 here, but 3GB. For long term I wanted 4GB from 480 yet nvidia is probably the better choice right? Acording to benchmarks as well.

>> No.57164453

Any news on Zen, like what CPUs will come, how many cores/threads and clock speed?
I need a new PC mainly for university / work and some games. I could get an i7 without a GPU for work/uni only, or a i5 + GPU for some gaymin, but then there's Zen.
Also want to support AMD, Intel must not be allowed a monopoly.

>> No.57164471

The 3GB 1060 is a pretty bad buy unless you're planning to get another GPU in a year or two.

I wonder how blown out the consoles are gonna be when zen and kaby lake hits

how much is a ps4 now? 400?

>> No.57164488

The 480 4gb beats the 1060 3gb soundly.
The 1060 3gb is a worse gpu overall than both the rx480 and the real gtx1060.
If you are getting a 200 monies gpu, don't bother with the anything with under 4gb of vram

Thanks a lot for helping me out lads, 480 will serve just fine. Cheers

Probably fine with a 470 on Ultra locked 60

Only buy a used (not new) FX CPU. Get a combo with mobo and RAM. If you're getting an 8300/8320/8350 use an aftermarket cooler or make sure it comes with a Wraith. The socket is dead, so you're looking at getting a whole new platform (including RAM) when you have to upgrade.

With the LGA1151 you can get a decent CPU now and upgrade to something better later. Personally I'd suggest an i5 6500K if you want 60FPS solid with an eventual upgrade to an i7 7700K

Is 6600k + 1060 -6gb a good pairing for [email protected] 120/144hz? Overkill cpu?

>> No.57165305

Nah its fine.
With cpu you want to try and get more than enough now because games get worse every year and eventually what is good now will be just okay later, even at 1080p

>> No.57165309

That depends entirely on what games you play. I guess for most games a 1060 6G at 1080p will be fine and the i5-6600K is a great CPU.
If you only play games or don't want to OC, drop to i5-6500. But honestly.. i'd wait for AMD Zen, it really looks promising.

>> No.57165555

My am3+ mobo died. My friend is going to buy my 8350 and gtx 960, but that means I need something RN. I'd rather buy something good now and have it last a little while than get something lowend like a i3 and crave an upgrade 12 months later.

>> No.57165616

i5-6600K will last you a while and you can always OC it. The 1060 6G is certainly not future proof, but it should be good for more than two years.
