Always consider an SSD if you can afford one and buy an HDD later.

A8-9600 - Absolute bare minimum gaymen without a dedicated GPU.
G4560 - Absolute bare minimum gaymen w/ a dedicated GPU.
R5 1400 - Best with OCing & high-speed RAM.
i5-8400 - Best value for gaymen
R5 1600 - Best value for mixed uses
R7, used Xeon, Threadripper, or 8700k - Heavy multi-tasking & mixed uses

* Crypto-Currency miners have driven GPU prices up, using an old GPU or waiting to build may be a good idea right now.
1060 3GB - 1080p 60fps at medium/high settings, anything below this just buy an Optiplex and put this GPU or better in.
1060 6GB or RX 580 - 1080p 60fps at ultra settings, former supports G-Sync, latter supports Freesync

Gaymanning question

Got an ITX "console killer" made from spare parts.

Current specs:
GPU 980
CPUCeleron G1610
RAM 8gb
MOBO Asus Pz77-I

I recently got Destiny 2, and while I know the processor is under minimum specs, if I overclock it to 3.0GHz it should work fine right?

There's really no reason this game should be a CPU hog, especially since it runs on APU's in the Xbone and PS4, but I'm getting a slideshow when I play.

Is there a way to keep the CPU, or should I just drop the 50 bucks for a non-K i52500?

>> No.63057432

first build. Right now I have a shitty laptop that I can't run euro truck simulator 2 on with good graphics (which is what makes the game fun). I want to be able to play the game on ultra, potentially using two monitors. Obviously the parts I chose here will be able to do more than that since I'm sure I'll find myself wanting to play other games as well.

Because of an action at work I have the opportunity to build a new PC cheaply but I would have to order within the next month to make use of it. If this was last year or earlier this year the choice of CPU would have been easy but the timing is awkward now.

Currently thinking of
I would carry over my GTX 970 and Samsung SSD from my current PC (Phenom II 1055T). The prices are about ~550 euros for both of these builds in my country.

The only demanding thing I ever do on my computer is gaming. At 1080p60 right now and probably will stay there until this monitor dies. In general I tend to use things until they are absolutely obsolete but chances are that if I do upgrade a part down the line it's going to be my GPU. I don't really intend to OC either.

In the case of the Ryzen build my chosen RAM model isn't on the motherboards QVL list but the 2x8GB red coloured version is. ( http://www.corsair.com/en-eu/vengeance-lpx-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-dram-3200mhz-c16-memory-kit-red-cmk16gx4m2b3200c16r ) Would that really make a difference in compatibility with this? http://www.corsair.com/en-us/vengeance-lpx-8gb-2x4gb-ddr4-dram-3200mhz-c16-memory-kit-black-cmk8gx4m2b3200c16

it should be that much more to switch from a 8400 build to a 1700 build as it stands, stream tests seem to indicate quite the big difference

if we skip the "cheapest" options, cheap z370s are about 125-140$
similarly, if we skip the "cheapest" options, cheap B350 boards are about 65-80$

actually a bigger difference than I anticipated

I though the discussion was exactly about the cheaper variants, but if we go look at the more premium ones, B350 boards are still 90-120 compared to Z370's 160-190

I know that this is likely a very stupid thing to do, but my plans have gotten pretty wrecked and financially shit is really weird right now, was going to make a new build and that's still the plan but now I have to divide up my purchases. Long story short I'm planning on getting a 1080ti and it's going to be its own purchase probably weeks if not a month or two separated from the core components.

So purchase order is established with the answer to this dumb question, if I were to pick up the 1080ti could I plug it into my current build and use it? I'm aware the processor will certainly bottleneck it, but I should still see an improvement in general right? And it won't hurt anything right?

like I said in my original post I am entirely new to this stuff. Why should I go amd's ryzen over an intel? As far as I can see the ryzen is considered better due to it having more cores as well as being cheaper. I have also learned ( i think) today that more cores is not always better if the processor isn't as strong to begin with and isn't always more efficient since not all current games will make use of these multiple cores. I have no idea of the current culture around gaming and pc tech so if any of this is outdated or is changing or I am just illiterate considering this stuff I would love to know

>> No.63058375

Because I don't have access to the amount of money it would take to make a new build any more (car died) but I do have enough I could say buy the 1080ti and use that until I can afford the actual build.

Thank you, though what is "fine"? Main purpose of the build is gaming, your saying that it's not something that's holding me back?

Part of the reason for the new CPU though is I want more RAM and I can't slot DDR4 so if I'm going to upgrade that and I would probably want a new CPU anyway since I'd be getting a new board and better would be nice (as far as I'm aware).

I think comparing CPUs of different architectures by their cores and clocks is completely pointless. Only benchmarks of what you want to do with them will show how they compare.

Most noticeable difference would probably be fan noise. Some of them have extra little bells and whistles software-wise.

What's a good, non meme, GPU for a reasonable Threadripper build? I don't strictly need a Quadro and I don't think there's much advantage but do I really want a 1080(ti)? Could I even trust RX Vega to not be a disappointment?

Having dealt with a home break in before (By my brother, not someone looking to steal from me), I prefer the Acrylic over the glass. harder to break, and when it does break, it's much easier to clean up.

What kind of gaming do you want to do? If you play a few rounds of League of Legends everyday and otherwise just browse youtube and shitpost the 1300x will be fine. The 1600 is arguably the best CPU in terms of bang for the buck on the market today. It does pretty much everything very well without excelling at anything in particular really.
Modern games already struggly with only 4 threads so the decision basically depends on what you want to do.
There are 4 core Ryzen 5 models that have SMT so the have 8 threads instead of 4 or you could go with the Intel if you want to (bit hard to get and mainboards are still quite expensive). >>63059490

i assumed he was going to use it for 1080p which was wrong of me. Even at higher resolutions though the cpu is still overkill for 60hz. Maybe 1080p freesync 144hz would be good on 1600x but it just seems like a weird selection of parts.
Like any modern cpu can 60hz at any resolution. 1060 6gb is maybe slightly overkill for 60hz 1080p. I would go with an amd gpu and any cheaper cpu. Leaves the doors open for freesync.
At 1440p,no not really. It's still optimal though. You want a 7700k or unlocked coffee lake and the fastest ram you can afford for high refresh gayman. Or go ryzen and mask it's inadequacies with adaptive sync.

Hey, I'm trying to upgrade my rig to something halfway decent, since I'm not able to build anything fancy with my current financial state.

Mostly for gaming/Android programming/audio engineering purposes.

Aiming to get the following things right now:

AMD Ryzen 5 1600
Zotac GTX 1050 Ti 4GB
Crucial Ballistix 8GB DDR4 2400Mhz

Was looking for opinions, advice on better products and stuff like that.

Yes there is a big difference. Get 144 that is overclock able to 165. What GPU?

>> No.63062050

If it's gaming or general use then don't worry too much, people are still getting by with their Sandy Bridge processors that released back in 2011. If it's a workstation you're looking for then take a look at a 1600 or 1700, or wait for Coffee Lake to start being sold.
Don't get memed into buying a processor you're not going to properly utilize. If you're gaming, just don't try to pair a G4560 or an FX with a 1080ti and you'll be golden.

Is it worth getting a 144hz monitor even if I can't get high fps?

Ok Il keep my i5 2500k then. Thanks m9

>> No.63062075

Depends, a 1050ti ($110 gpu) will easily get 100+ fps if graphics are set to low-medium. A 480 8GB will push 100+fps at very high details, You pick what level of performance you want it doesnt matter. The monitor matters a lot though so get a good 144hz ips panel and you will be set.

>> No.63062088

just depends on what features you want. google ab350 comparisons and you'll find sheets on google which show the slots/phases and all that. If you're not doing anything fancy then chances are you can just go with the cheapest, but its good to do some research.

Fairly low end CPU, I think you at least want a hyperthreaded dualcore that can reach 3.5 GHz. Also that's an overclocking board, there should be a cheaper chipset available.

Give us the QVL link to verify then stupid.

What resolution and framerate are you playing at? Below 90 fps, I would recommend an R5/B350 build instead for similar pricing. Can't say the 6 GB VRAM makes much sense at 1080p, so you could maybe save with a 3 GB variant.

Have you used Gsync before? I don't think it makes much difference at high framerates. Have you seen this? Not recommend a Vega card either.

I'm tired of posting this pic.

Just for gaming above 8 GB is completely meaningless, however, background applications may need another 4 GB or so. You will never need 32 GB for a single desktop user.

Faster ram? Cheaper PSU?

Dumb build honestly unless you're trying for 3x 1440p
