CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560 - poverty-tier builds
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

GPUs:

>GTX 1080 - 1080p@144hz / 1440p@60hz maxed, 4k@60hz in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p

>Vega soon.

RAM:

>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.

Wow good timing. I resorted to /wsr/ for advice on my first build, and someone nicely pointed out OP made one.

I attempted for an 800 dollar build for gaming and for CAD. How did I do for the first time? Is there any where I can improve or recommendations? I would love to be able to squeeze more power out of it since right now pcpartpicker has me at 770 and I don't mind going over 800 much.

So I'm moving into an apartment for coming year of college. Unfortunately my landlord doesn't have the room I'm renting rigged for an ethernet connection, which means I have to buy a wifi adapter for my desktop. I've been looking at PCI adapters, and it got me thinking to just get a new CPU and MOBO with wifi included.

Should I? Here's what I'm running with now, is it time to start upgrading? Specifically, the MOBO and CPU?
>>
>>61876654
Man, building a Craigslist/eBay build is painful. All those great deals that you don't need/can't afford...
Good luck mang.
>>
>>61876607
Get a ryzen 7, you need those extra cores. GPU doesn't really matter for streaming, just get whichever one gives you a smooth experience. Gamersnexus did a vide about streaming a week or so ago, you could check that out.

>>61876948
It's an option, yes. You'll need to replace that CPU soon if you want to do anything remotely taxing, so might as well do it now. You won't get good gaming performance without replacing the graphics card though, so if you care about that and are on a tight budget then blowing everything on a new processor is not the smartest idea.
>>
>>61877002
I was planning to just start upgrading now, and do it piece be piece.
I was imagining to start with the CPU/MOBO, then get a new GPU, then SSD, then case, and just carry over my PSU.
So the smartest option is just buy a PCI wifi adapter?
>>
I want to upgrade my GPU, I currently have a radeon hd 7850. I've been looking at the GTX 1060 6gb, or the RX 580. My question is, do you think the price of these will go down once Vega comes out?
>>
>>61877028
>So the smartest option is just buy a PCI wifi adapter?
or just get a motherboard with built in wifi
>>
>>61876948

Ultimately I think it is a budget decision. PCI cards are cheap, a new mobo+CPU+RAM is obviously way more. While your old i5 doesn't appear to be overclockable, I know people that get by fine on an i5 2400 Dell Optiplex. Old i5s are still fine for 1080p gaming if you're a gamer (Although you may look into a new GPU when prices fall again)
>>
Do we know anything about gpu price drops? Right now my r9 380 is still doing ok, might drop a setting here and there, but I'm kinda looking at some replacement. From what I know something similar to 380 now would be 1060/580, but right now those are extremely overpriced. Is there any info about volta and new mid range cards?
>>
>>61877039
likely, just wait as the release date is pretty close.

vega apparently has very good hash rates. If i had to guess 580s should at least be available at 250$ again, but dropping back to 170-190 is unlikely.
>>
>>61877078
Yeah, I noticed this bitcoin bullshit has jacked up the prices. Is there any consensus on when they should start dropping? I'll just live with my setup as is and buy the pieces for the new one over the coming months.
>>
>>61877028
If you're going to replace your motherboard soon then the most cost effective option is replacing it now without buying additional hardware. It just means that you'll have to wait a bit before getting the new graphics card to improve your framerates.

If that wait takes too long in your opinion then get the wifi card and a new graphics card now. It depends on how much excess income you earn and what level of hardware you aim for.

>>
>>61877161
Well the wifi card is happening regardless, I'll transfer it to the new build once the new one is done.
If I buy a new mobo I'll have to get a new CPU, unless I just shelf it until I get the CPU, as I'd buy one to use with a ryzen chip.
>>
>>61877195
Gigabyte has B350 ITX board with wifi.
>>
>>61877195
New mobo also means new RAM, which the price has gone up on. WiFi card is the smartest investment imo. You can always resell or reuse it later.
>>
>>61877245
What's the catalyst behind RAM going up now?
>>
>>61877257
shortages in NAND flash memory. Same thing is affecting the price of SSDs.

They said 2667 MHz but they said that for the 1600 and I got over 3000.
>>
>>61876679
you do realize a 580 is better than a 1060
>>
>>61877433
In my experience it's more dependent upon the mobo and its BIOS. I am currently at 3200 MHz with my latest BIOS update. I haven't seen many going above 3200 though.

My old Dell L800CXE retro system blew its ps after 16 yrs. I know dell totally fucked with the atx wiring back in those days so that if you tried to swap everything into a new case with psu you'd end up frying the mobo/components. So I hunted around and came across a converter cable that fixes Dell's screwed up wiring and allows a standard ATX ps to be used with existing parts. Question is has anyone ever used such a cable before? Theory behind it is sound so I see no reason why it shouldn't work. I know that back then there was no such thing as "80+" energy efficiency ratings so I dunno how modern psu's would take to an old board from 2001.
>>
>>61877511
Fine have fun with it! I've messed around with some APU builds, and in 2017, I just don't have the creativity to find a use for them. HTPCs are a meme but you could try that. Try to make some kind of server or NAS setup if you get a mobo with gigabit ethernet.

In my experience though, FM2 boards tend to be unreliable.

User benchmarks is pretty shit, and relies on simple retarded synthetic numbers.

The i5 has better single core but the R5 1600 blows it out of the water in multicore.

>>
>>61879468
7700 is still better for pure MUH GAMES, but this could change, especially for shitty console ports, as both consoles have 6 core shit in them, so maybe we will get better multi-threading soon.

AM4 socket is good until 2020 as well so who knows what zen2 will bring. Meanwhile, coffee lake is not compatible with z200 series that the 7700 is on.

There are several boards available but I would avoid the Gigabyte ones because the layout is awkward and cable management will be awful.

The 7700k has basically no advantage over a 1600(x) unless you're targeting 100fps+, and even then it's not a huge difference.

>Alright then, gpu prices are still high due to miners right?
Yes. Vega will likely make mining with Polaris less profitable, so the prices of mid-range GPUs will likely come down some even if they don't normalize.

Zen2 should be good to focus for. Zen is a great start but wait for the tools and everything to mature round it.

Someone please halp

I'm looking at the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC 3GB atm as oppose to the dual fan because its $40 cheaper.

they have the same speeds but i don't undder stand this,

>3GB 192-Bit GDDR5
>Core Clock 1556 MHz in OC Mode
>1531 MHz in Gaming Mode
>Boost Clock 1771 MHz in OC Mode
>1746 MHz in Gaming Mode
>8008mhz memory clock

what the fuck is gaming mode? do i have to turn that on myself?

also, i'm returning my EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SC GAMING 4GB, which specs are

>4GB 128-Bit GDDR5
>Core Clock 1354 MHz
>Boost Clock 1468 MHz
>7010mhz memory clock

think the 1060 will be better than it?
>>
>>61876574
You know you can make the general yourself right

Also other anons are right go for an Rx 580 or or 1060 6gb
>>
>>61881615
1060 (3 GB) is barely better than your 1050 Ti, might as well just keep that
>>
>>61881629
the only thing that's driving me nuts is that i feel that if i switch to the 1060 3gb i won't drop under 60fps on high/ultra, right now in most games i'll drop to the low 40's.

forgot to mention that i'm running an fx 6300 at 3.5ghz, i'll be upgrading to an i5 6600k with new mobo and ram around october. in that case, should i still stick with the 1050 ti sc?

Hardware. Intel vs AMD, which processor, Motherboard etc.

Annoyingly my system should support it, but ASUS fucked the BIOS up.
>>
>>61881785
looks good my man. make sure those ram sticks are in your motherboard's qvl.

the 1080 ti gaming x is the best gpu i've ever owned.
>>
>>61881745
>>61881713
In some games 8 threads do even out the framepacing, which means that the gameplay feels smoother due to less stuttering. But it's not strictly nesseccary.

I woudnt pair 1200 with gtx 1070/1080 but for everything else it's decent enough. 1300x has fairly high base clock speeds though, so if you're not keen on overclocking it's well worth the extra price. Also some people have discovered that 1200 doesnt overclock as well, you're limited at 3,8-3,9 GHz.YMMW

You need to check that you get an AM4 compatible cooler. IIRC Noctua offer an upgrade kit for most of their coolers (and sell some explicitly with the AM4 bracket in the box).

The 1800x and 1700x are better binned, so you're more likely to get to 4.0 or 4.1 to them with decent voltages. If you want best value, they're not worth it. If you're willing to spend extra cash for marginal improvements(and were going to get an aftermarket cooler anyway), they can be.

investing in a dead socket is dumb
I hear this a lot, can you explain why? I'm not really sure what you are losing by using an older socket. From my perspective anything Ivy Bridge or later has all I need, i.e. SATA3 and PCIe 3, plus Windows 7 support. A 4960X + motherboard will presumably be quite a bit cheaper than a 8700K + motheboard, and will allow me to use my current RAM too.

>also what stuttering issues? wasn't the only case in like gta 5?
It happens in a lot of games, I always noticed it on my i5 too, I thought it was just a directx thing but it turns out it's the CPU shitting the bed for a split second, seems 6+ cores fixes it because a 4960X or 5960X has much better minimums in gaming benchmarks than a 7700K.

>yeah because that 300 vs 330fps really makes a difference
pic related, a 40%+ drop in minimums is kind of a big deal, 110FPS in CSGO is unacceptable.

7700k still has hyperthreading so it shouldn't stutter as much as i5 do with 4c/4t.

If you're building a system with used parts and are going with a platform old enough to support DDR3, if you're feeling risky you might try and combine your current RAM with other DIMMs to reach the 16GB you'll need. Otherwise, just throw it all in the bin.

Depends on what you will do. Again, you can't place Windows on a dynamic disks, but both Windows 10 and WIndows 7 will work with joint links, so you may want to use joint links to add an additional drive as a folder in your first drive.

Are there any FX-8350 fags who can tell me how fast one can OC on stock volts? I'd be happy with 4.2GHz turbo speed locked, a 5% boost is a boost.
>>
>>61886424
I'll try to, but the cost difference is frustrating for a damn fan.
Will I be ok with the mini if I don't plan on OCing for anything?
>>
>>61885107
Save them so can downgrade to a working system until the new parts arrive when something breaks.
>>
>>61886560
Yeah, just higher average temps, but it's no big deal, your pc is looking great. Enjoy.
>>
>>61886545
4.2Ghz is ltierally the stock boost, it shuld go this high at stock bios settings, mine did with a really shitty gigabyte motherboard.
>>
>>61886691
Yeah I should expect higher from a 990FX board, my Dell Optiplex overclocked by 300mhz before crashing and that thing's shit.

My 8350 would do 4.4 at stock, or I could undervolt it down to around 1.19 at 4.0
>>
>>61886798
That's fucking sick, I may crank up the bus until it crashes or save heat by working the voltage back at 5.0 till it crashes, good stuff, never had a standard atx system before.
>>
>>61886820
>5.0
4.0**
>>
>>61886820
Depending on your board you'll have better luck with the bus. There are certain values that work better, like my system just was kit stable at 230, but rock solid at 264 or 290. You'll want to bump vdda voltage a bit though, and keep cpu+NB voltage at around 1.28 max, that will help stabilize higher bus speeds. Obviously adjust ht and NB speeds down, try to keep them around 2400ish and keep them at the same speed, don't go above 1.28 for ht or nb voltage though

I'm building with the MSI 990FXA GAMING, which delivers clean enough power to run a 9590 at 4.7, would've liked to have a based 990FXA-UD3 rev 4 or 5, but whatever.

It'll be cooler than what I've got now, and the rest of the system such as the case, psu and everything else is going as I planned.

Are any of the AMD cards a decent alternative to the new GTX cards?

I was thinking of dropping maybe €800 on a new build and dropping 500 just on the gpu would severely limit the rest of it.

Tomorrow we'll know how good these vega cards from amd are. Vega 56 competes with the 1070 and the other vega with the 1080. With a 800€ budget I wouldn't go higher than a 1070 or vega 56 imo.

hard to say since we are at the mercy of the miners fucks. vega 56 should be 400ish but how knows what will happen. And if you wanted to spent 250€ on the card that's the price sector most fucked up by the mining crisis.

Just stick with 7 or 8.1 at most. 10 is just cancer.

If Vega gaming cards can actually mine 70MH/s(or even more) as rumored, it should certainly ease the demand on polaris cards.

Maybe sell it for an Intel fanboy for much more.

I see a few sources claiming microsoft dropped support, but that doesn't mean the processors don't work.
Anecdotal evidence from around the internet seems to indicate it might be a bitch to run on win7, but win8.1 doesn't complain.

Oh damn, so if I go Ryzen then I have to get Windows 10?

>>61889714
If you go any newer Intel gen, you have to go win10 as well. Unless you have a brain and force 7/8.1 on it.
>>
>>61889785

Looks like I'm stuck with Windows 10 then, I could fuck around with it, but I'm lazy.
Plus living in the UK means that I don't have any privacy anyway, so it doesn't matter too much.

While the 3gb 1060 is the shitty version with cut down cores it is stil massively more powerful than a 1050ti.
Roughly 75% faster but this will vary from game to game. The 1050ti is an absolutely horrible buy that should be avoided at all costs.
The only acceptable reason is the mining shit making the only available cards 560, 1050, 1050ti then nothing until $500 1070s and 1080s.

Never heard of Inno3D
Either that or go for Zotac at £250. Can't find any in stock elsewhere.
