My budget is 3000 PLN. I have good: speakers, a keyboard and a mouse, so please include a monitor in the build you make for me. The probably most demanding uses are GTA V and Payday 2. I'd like to include a 256 GB SSD for Windows 10 and games, a 128 GB SSD for Linux Mint and its crap and a 2 TB HDD for my old video and photo shit, all in a mini-ITX. Since this is fucking Poland, I will not bother trying to find and buy used shit. Thanks /g/!

>Check GamersNexus review on that cooler
Thank you, I did. But noise normalized to 35 dba and better temperatures than other CLCs and the NH-D15 really doesn't tell me much. The Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT is quieter than the NH-D15 they tested with, and only uses 1 fan. I don't have to deal with a new pump design or pump noise at all. Your suggestion for 4 fans would definitely help the noise level, but the possibility of pump noise or issues arising later is still there, and it will undoubtedly be louder than the Le Grand Macho RT at idle. I don't need the ultimate performance, I just want decent performance with a chance at some OCing (might or might not do) with a cooler that is ultra quiet. I welcome more discussion.

Well it's not really worth upgrading either without the other. Unless you wanted to go to a 3050Ti or something. Assuming you want something more along the lines of a 3070 I would upgrade the monitor at the same time then maybe the CPU if your particular games get bottlenecked by a 1st gen Ryzen.

Barring any delays, which given the [current year] are more likely, they'll probably try to release before Black Friday and definitely before Christmas.

Best I can do is the Pro4 (m) at $115. Don't get me wrong the HDV can run a 3600 no problem but if you want to upgrade to a higher SKU later on the Pro4 would be significantly better.

I want to do normal things like web browsing, word processing and all that and be able to game on it and play newer games at decently high settings to make it worth switching off console.
As far as budget is concerned I'd be willing to go up to 1500 USD at the max but I'd like to keep it under that if possible and there really isn't much issue with space per se.
I would need a decent keyboard and mouse for sure and a monitor.

Something like this is a kind of typical system around your price point
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/hnDJ3t

However there are a few things to note with the above, I went with a good 1080p 144hz ips monitor because I have one and know its very good, and the GPU will be able to push it to a high frame rate for years to come, the cpu is the standard reccomendation for a general purpose rig with high end gaming and some light creative/productive workloads, mobo is one chosen based on the rating, case, psu, storage and mouse were all chosen as they're good baseline choices that are around what you should be looking at and would be typical for a system like this. I didn't include a keyboard as you can use any office crap to start out with and be fine, getting a nice one later, its not important like a proper mouse is

If you wanted to spend less money I would recommend dropping down to a less overkill gpu, the 2070 super is a very good card, at 1080p you could comfortably get away with a GTX1660, if you wanted to swap the monitor I chose out for a 1440p one though you would need the extra power

Just don't rush into buying anything and do your research, for my needs a system like this is honestly kind of overkill, I spent similar money on my rig a few years ago and don't use its full power most of the time

If you're buying AMD it only makes sense to buy Sapphire or PowerColor. The 5700XT is just not designed to run so aggressively. The reason the black screen bug occurs is mostly due to the lottery in my experience. I've built 14 PCs with 5700XTs all using the same PSUs and 4 of them were faulty - gave black screens.

Most other high-end air coolers like the True Spirit 140 Power, NH-U14S, NH-D15, and Assassin III should all be very quiet as well if you let the fans run at low rpm.
However, most coolers aren't optimized for operation with fans at super low rpm so the Le Grand Macho RT probably performs the best in this specific use case.

And the PSU is used. It's my friends of but he bought it off of someone trustworthy he says.
His previous PSU was faulty and kept shutting down. I told him to stop using it but he didn't and kept using it for months whilst complaining that he can barely play anything because of the crashes(like playing the same level over and over). He's poor.
My concern is he's probably damaged a component. Now quite obviously because he's poor he just made himself poorer if somethings broke. I'm hoping it's windows but he refuses to refresh install.
Oh yeah I also checked the PSU volt it actually looks like quality. It manages to stay over 12v underload

Your PC might draw a lot more power than whatever your friend used. Also peak power draw of GPUs can significantly surpass average power draw, this can trip the OCP/OPP of your PSU (e.g. AMD Vega 56/64 are notorious for this).
List your components for less guesswork.

To make sure it's not the PSU, you should really try a different one.

I'm guessing I can't fit my wifi adapter. This is with the GPU pushed back slightly. Looks like it'll be USB for me. Adapter is Asus PCE-AC55BT B1 and my GPU is Sapphire Pulse 5700 XT.

Honestly doesn't even matter the 1660 super uses little power even an intel cooler could probably cool it. A lot of people like evga but i would pick whatever has 2 fans on it and is not close the 2060/5600xt pricing.

Recently got a 1660TI for my windows 7 machine and next on the list is my processor.
Socket is 1155.
Was looking at the i7-3770K and it seems like the best thing I can get, correct?
I wanted to put my 960 back in and SLI it with the 1660ti for moar fps but is that a total loss at this point with my older 1155 socket?

If you are going to zen 3 within a reasonable time of its release (like 6 months), get the 3600. The 3700x is bad value in the short term. Get a b550 tomahawk or mortar mobo so you can oc, auto oc with no hastle.

I was watching benchmark tests on YouTube comparing the 3600x vs. 3700x vs. 3800x in certain games and the difference in FPS doesn't really seem to be that massive, so I might just go for the middle road option and get a 3700x like you suggested. Any other recommendations for a great mobo?

i know, i just wanted to see if the game could run better than 2 (which by the way, also runs like ASS) and i got it as a gift.

for some god forsaken reason, DX12 runs a thousand times better than DX11 on that game, it's a stuttering mess otherwise but it still drops to the low 50s when firefights occur.

same thing happens with Vermintide 2

I'm asking between those two specific cards because for me those are the only ones with international shipping and i have to pay 150% of the price you see on Amazon due to shipping/import fees anyway.
If i were to buy a better card the price would be higher hence higher fees to the point where isn't even worth it.

Buddy, i know you are an amerishart or western europoor but for some people 100+ dollars can be the difference between something being totally out of reach or just out of practical reach for some people. Plus a card that is 250 dollars for amerilards after import gouging, currency conversion, supply/demand in another country can easily shoot up to double the price sometimes.

PSUs are in short supply right now, ur just gonna have to bite the bullet and pay $120 for a decent one. Better to overpay by 30 bucks and get a psu that will serve you well for many years than to find the cheapest non modular low wattage option for $60 that you will regret owning. Myself, i just bought a 750w semi modular Seasonic Gold for 117 with the $10 off Newegg newsletter sign up thing.

I've noticed on some new motherboards such as the MSI B550, the inclusion of two Ethernet ports. A 2.5Gbps and I guess the standard 1Gbps. I've also seen PCI-E expansion slot 10Gbps ports. What I wanna know is where in North America could you possibly find an ISP that could offer those speeds. Here in Toronto, the biggest city in Canada, the absolute top speed offered is "up to 1Gbps" which is 1000Mbps which is 125 Megabytes. This is the standard max speed for Cat5e cables. And this only became available in like the last 2 years. But ya, where the hell are you guys getting faster speeds than this where you would need to use 2.5 or 10 Gbps ports?
