Is the difference between the RX 580 4GB and 8GB solely memory or is it weaker like how the 1060 6GB was flat out stronger over the 3GB model?

>> No.72109760

4gb is no 'weaker'
A few games will be pushing at the edge of 4gb. Doom i think, mirrors edge 2 and a couple others wont let you run highest textures at all. A few others might let you run them but if try and have some of the other VRAM eating settings as well you will impact performance a bit, by maxing out the 4gb. But you are generally right that its not too different, for 'most' games.
If you plan to keep it for even just a year or two though, i'd recommend the 8gb as the amount of games pushing the 4gb is only going to rise. Also if you like to/want to graphics mod skyrim/fallout, as cramming 4k textures in can fill it up fast.
In the end its really depends on how much extra it costs and how soon you think you'd upgrade.

>> No.72109775

lmao? of course what the hell made you think otherwise.
For just 60fps, you are going to be hard pressed to find games which need more than the 2600 for many years to come.
3600 is massive overkill if all you're doing is 60fps.

As long as you don't plan to upgrade it, just as-is for $110 I think that's okay. And like the other anon said, as long as you don't plan to play recent games on it. Anything newer than 2012 or 2013, you're pretty screwed.

Rocket League, LoL, CSGO, and some others get massive gains with Zen2.

Because it's probably QLC NAND.

>no one plays with a 2080ti
There are GPUs in between the 1080/5700 and the 2080Ti which very well may be used at 1080p. 3600+5700XT is a good 1080p combo.

>> No.72109778

So the 3600 is only around 5-10 fps quicker than my 2600 at 1440p. The 3600 seems like a rip off for people who play 1440p lmao.

Your post better illustrates how retarded it is that people get a 9700k or 9900k, especially at 1440p. There's a much bigger difference between the 2600 and 3600, with the 3600 usually being all you need to not be CPU bottlenecked at 1440p, than there is a difference between the 3600 and 9700k.

Not really worth it since you're spending $300 on something you can't upgrade outside of putting maybe a 1660ti (or upcoming RX 5600) in it. Won't be worth upgrading the CPU.
You'd be better off spending $300 on a new 2400G build and upgrading that with a better CPU and GPU later.

3600 is the highest before you have to manually overclock infinity fabric... which you should currently be doing anything because auto is bugged and likely responsible for some of the poor benchmark results that some outlets got.
The main reason LTT, L1T, and some others got good results which matched AMDs is because they manually set the FCLK to 1/2 MCLK.
Hopefully AGESA fixes that.

Anyway, I wouldn't go higher than 1.45 unless you're monitoring memory temps closely. But you can potentially go up to 1.55 with enough cooling. Water cooled RAM I've seen at 1.6v and higher.

ninja5 should be fine for the 9700k. You should get 4.8GHz fine unless you have terrible luck.

you should not use auto timings... they will be massively slower than manually tweaked.
But I'm talking about FCLK auto. It's supposed to automatically set itself to 1/2 MCLK, but it's bugged and gets out of sync. You will get better performance by manually setting FCLK to 1/2 of MCLK.

None. 2080/S is extremely overpriced a bad buy. Just overclock a 5700XT or 2070S.
2080 only exists to make the 2080Ti seem slightly more reasonable, when really the 2080 should have been the 2080Ti and sold for 2080 price.

1660 being "standard" is just psyops by Nvidia shills. It was never a very good price to be worth it. Though it is quite efficient.
590 are regularly on sale for $190. That's 20% cheaper.

If 1660 drops to $200 or less, it's a good buy, but not at MSRP.
Also since the RX580 typically runs everything at [email protected] on at least "high", if not maxed, there's no point in spending more than that.

uhh 9350K but it's highly unadvisable since most games that are "single threaded" like CSGO, Dwarf Fortress, LoL, Rocket League, old emulators, etc, actually run better on Ryzen due to their typically fitting in the high cache and benefitting from it greatly.
4c/4t is pretty retarded.

From all I've heard from both the professional reviewers and people that have gotten them, the blower 5700 is fine due to it being a decent blower with a vapor chamber and being so low power (typically 140-155W during gaming).
It's the XT that runs hotter and the blower gets hot and loud with that you should definitely wait with.

Especially if you're near microcenter, it's only $250 for the 5700 and I'd just get it now instead of waiting for more expensive custom cooler cards.

But anyway it's probably saying how you'll need to update BIOS on the B450 board.

Including monitor cost you mean? Yeah. $100-$200 more for monitor and $120-$170 more for GPU would be a nice 1440p machine.
I'm surprised I missed that. I don't know why people would spend that much for 1080p and not just spend $300 more to have nearly double the image quality.

Just get a 3600. It will run Skyrim great.

By the 10th or 17th, I'm not sure which.

Get a better case that has dust filters holy shit.
Get a better gpu like the RX 5700.
Get a 550W PSU at around $55. That $40 you're wasting on PSU could be going toward a better GPU.
Replace the SSD with the SX8200, Inland Premium, or whatever the Crucial equivalent is (they all use the same controller and shit and afaik are better than the MX500 unless I'm missing something). They should all be around $100 for 1TB.

Get a 3600. You are going to be GPU bottlenecked and are just wasting money on the housefire stutterlake CPU.
Also drop the cooler to something like the Purerock or Arctic Freezer 33. Will save you a good deal while getting the same FPS.
Memory choice is good whether Ryzen or Intel. Should OC to 3600 easy.

don't get an A400 wtf?
Get an SX8200 for main drive and 2TB QVO, 660p, or SU800 (or wahtever cheapest 3D TLC NAND drive is) for secondary.
Don't get Gigabyte for GPU. Their warranty service is the fucking worst. Get XFX, Powercolor, Sapphire, or MSI.
Drop PSU to 550-650W.

... I really don't understand how so many people don't understand such a basic thing as watts = volts * amps.
Different operations of the GPU can pull more amps at a given voltage, increasing power consumption (watts).

Even if you had a 9900k under LN2 running at 6GHz, it would not magically make your GPU run faster. Your GPU is what renders the frames. You only need the minimal speed from a CPU which can keep up with the GPU.
With a 2070S, you won't see any difference between a 3600/3700X/9700k/9900k/3900X, so you may as well get the cheapest one... the 3600. Maybe in a few games you might have like a 1-5% difference with a 3700X or 9700k over the 3600. If you really care about 5% in like 1 out of 20 games, just get the 3700X since it's cheaper as it comes with a good cooler for it.
You'll only see a difference with a 2080Ti and at 1080p. A 2070S is bottlenecked by any decent CPU, 3600 and up.
>Are there even any out which don't require a bio update for the cpu to work?
the MSI "MAX" boards. I don't see them on online retailers yet.
Or get an X570 board like the MSI A PRO, GAMING PLUS, or ASRock Pro4. They're all around $160-$170.

anything with micron e-die. That's the best value wise to overclock. I think some can be found at 3600CL18 stock too.
samsung b-die if you want the absolute best and you're going to manually overclock it yourself.

Can't you get a cheaper PSU? So much of your build cost is going to that.
The 5700 and 3700X are both extremely power efficient components and would run on a 400W PSU. Even 550-600W is overkill to leave room for future upgrades. You're generally going to be at <225W at full gaming load so you're going to be far under the peak efficiency on a 650W PSU.
Otherwise, very good build.

ASUS tend to be sturdier, with 6 layers... but they have really shit BIOS with Zen2 right now.
>support for cooler
good coolers have hefty metal backplates.

crucial has a cheap NVMe. The p1 or something. Same controller as the SX8200 and Inland Premium.

Yeah I think ASRock has loud ones. I forgot about that. At least if you turn them up.
MSI's are quiet and you should be able to configure it to never turn on at all.
They're mostly there because of PCIe 4.0 NVMe RAID. Under normal usage, they don't get hot enough to need a loud fan.

There's a lot of intcel brainlets spreading FUD about the noise by turning the RPM up to 4000 on the fans, which is totally unnecessary. I'm not sure what the ASRock ones are like under normal operation, but I know they're lower quality fans than MSIs.

>Also is the 3600 actually better than the i7 9700
9700 gets like 5% higher fps on average or some shit, but that's only with a 2080Ti at 1080p.
You're GPU bottlenecked with a 2070S so there's no point in spending more money.
3600 is more secure, uses half the electricity which means a cooler and quieter build and less money spent on cooling (a $35 Arctic freezer 33 or pure rock is overkill on the 3600, but insufficient for the 9700k). With a 2070S, there is going to be less than a 1% fps difference between the two.
In non-gaming, the 3600 is better by way more than 5% and will also handle running shit in the background smoothly better as well.

There's no real reason to get any Intel CPU unless you need an iGPU for Linux passthrough (even then, would recommend a 2nd GPU if case will fit one), or if you're using a 2080Ti at 1080p for some stupid reason. AMD is just better in every other situation.

zen2 is just plainly a better architecture on a better process node that was made to compete with Intel's 10nm which doesn't exist on desktop.
The only downside is it just launched and there are some new architecture teething pains. Will probably be another 2-3 weeks before there is a truly "good" and stable BIOS, but it's at least usable now. Long term, it's a better choice.

It's relevant at being the butt of jokes about it stuttering like shit in most any game from the past 3 years.
You won't even manage 60fps minimums in a lot of games without at least a 4790. Even a 7600k overclocked to 5GHz can't manage 60fps minimums in a lot of newer games. Upgrading to a 2600 or 3600 might be more worthwhile than the 4790.

3600X isn't worth buying. It's like 3% better than the 3600 for 25% more money.
3600 or 3700X are the best choices.
DRP4 would be overkill, I already said.
They are both very efficient CPUs, and the 3700X comes with a 140W TDP cooler (DRP4 is a 250W TDP cooler, but they're both low power chips). There's no point in spending more than like $50 to cool such efficient chips. They aren't housefires like the 9700k/9900k. If you want a Be Quiet cooler, they make cheaper ones than the DPR4.

$330 here.

I haven't seen a good 3700X/3900X/9700k/9900k test for Arma 3 yet. Point me to one?
