Honestly just look at the reviews, it'll give you a much better sample than a couple of replies on 4chan will.

To be perfectly honest it's probably a bit overkill for what most people actually do with their PCs, but it all depends on what YOU plan on doing with it.

Just look at reviews, can't really go wrong with that.

Thinking of getting a IPS, 1440p, 144Hz G-sync monitor. I bought a monitor like that but it's 1080p and a TN panel. Originally bought it for games like DotA 2 and Overwatch and I realized I fucking hate those games and need to just primarily stick to RPGs.

Current build: GTX 1070, i5-4670k @ 4.2 GHz, 16GB DDR-3 RAM @ 1600 MHz

Is this a worthy upgrade? Should I provide more information about games I play that could potentially take advantage of this?

>>66330503
X370/X470 extra PCIe lanes are lost on mITX but

Also TECHNICALLY you could use all of the lanes on mITX with three m.2 x4 slots. That's 12 lanes used, 8 for gpu, and 4 left over for SATA ports. They just uh... don't as far as I know on any board.
Hey, now you can see that not having X370 and X470 mATX boards is mega-fucking-retarded. Feel free to email ASRock or others about this issue.

This is for many reasons.
People are autistic and think their GPU needs the full x16 lanes, when they don't. You need to drop down to x4 before you see tenths of a percentage drop in gaymes or anything else. x8 is still overkill bandwidth for a 1080ti or vega 64.

And just dumb marketing shit. People think X370/X470 is just better, so they gimp the quality of b350 boards arbitrarily even though the chipset is perfectly sufficient.

>>66330535

What are my options for 32"-42" 4k monitors at the moment? I've tried to keep an eye on new releases but they all seem to have one critical flaw that's a dealbreaker.

I just want to have a huge workspace without scaling.

Not sure if it's worth it with a 1070, since your frame rates won't be very high at that resolution. I'm personally questioning if that type of monitor is even worth it for a 1080, since a lot of the benchmarks I'm seeing rarely go above 100 Hz at 1440p.

You might want to check out any videos covering 1070 benchmarks, to see what the frame rates might be like for the types of games you're interested in.
>>
>>66330714
Honestly, that's just a pretty solid build man. Noctua fans aren't exactly the best perf per dollar fans, but they're straight up one of the best.

MX500, WD Blue, SU900 are standard options. Can find older model MX and SU on sale now and then, and 850 Evo for that matter, but only worth it if far cheaper and you don't care about the speed. (SU650 is just plain MLC, iirc, not 3D)
860 Evo if it's on sale for the same price as the above. NOT worth paying a premium for above the above models.
860 Pro if you need the bit of extra speed and higher warranty, TBW.
Fast NVMe are useful as scratch disks, working drives, when you say need to move hundreds of MB of video around often as they have higher transfer rates. Does not affect boot/load times.
Optane 900p can be really good when paired with StoreMi. They don't overheat and throttle like NVMe do, have massively better ops/sec performance, lower latency, etc. But I wish they were closer to NVMe prices.
>>66330620
Also this. Generally not worth getting an SSD that's under like 4.3 stars on Amazon. ie Patriot garbage.
Actually.. SU900 are only 4.1. A lot worse than the SU800. I guess they dropped in quality with the new model and aren't worth recommending anymore.


>>66330661
1440p 144hz is kind of the sweet spot. Otherwise you'd be running 4k upscaled since nothing can reliably drive 4K well in half of games, let alone nearly all or all.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ttnG3C/acer-monitor-xb271hubmiprz is a good choice, afaik.
It's basically the same as the best gaming Freesync monitor, which is https://pcpartpicker.com/product/wFfhP6/nixeus-nx-edg27s-270-2560x1440-144hz-monitor-nx-edg27s for anyone also looking for that.

>>66330683

40" 4k is about the same ppi as a 24" 1080p screen which I'm currently using 2 of. It's pretty nice, but I wouldn't want to go any lower in ppi, I'm a lot more comfortable with my laptop's 1920x1200@15.4" actually.

>>66330760
Budget is around $1k, and I'd prefer VA, since I'd rather deal with black crush over the general low contrast of IPS. Refresh rate doesn't matter either since I'm not going to be gaming much.

I guess I should pick something with a decent DCI-P3 coverage at least though, it seems to be the norm amongst modern screens. I can get it calibrated myself, so factory accuracy isn't very important.

My 1600/Wraith Spire was running on full load at 3.7ghz/1.325v the whole day. It was 80F in my room when I got home and my CPU was maxing out at 74C with fan RPM maxing at 2900RPM.
Should I spring for a DH15s?
>>
>>66330735
>since your frame rates won't be very high at that resolution.
lmao I play 2560x1600 on an RX580 in almost everything. Most modern games (and even some older ones) look and run better on a mix of medium and high at higher resolution than maxed at lower resolution because they have shitty anti aliasing and more pixels is the only way to fix their shitty AA.

Also most "max" or "ultra" settings are just there to make the game run worse for benchmarks, not actually look better.

>>66330760
>gigabyte windforce
I have those. Somehow reviews measure its dB as quiet, but you'll find others saying they're loud as fuck if you google "gigabyte windforce noise". And I have the 1070 model, same cooler, and it's fucking loud. And it's not just the dB, it's the particular pitch of the sound that's annoying and penetrates through a case so it's harder to muffle.

74C is still technically perfectly safe, even if it doesn't feel nice emotionally.
DH15s is likely overkill, but it might not hurt to get a new cooler if you also plan to use it in a Zen2 or Zen3 upgrade.
>>66330894
Sure. Just at load, right? I mean it'll wear down the fan but you can always replace it when it dies instead of sooner.

>>66330829
Oh I see why reviews show it not appearing that loud.
They compare it to reference blowers LOL.

How fucking garbage does your triple fan cooler have to be to be ON PAR with reference blowers? Fuck Gigabyte always.

>>66330867
It's a mistake to get Gigabyte either way. Same way I told people to fuck off from those Gigabyte Vega ones.

>>66330885
Getting new monitor? Obviously RX580. You save like $80-$300 on monitor and generally have better choice.
Not to mention, Nvidia doesn't have dithering support so you get ugly as shit banding with local dimming monitors.
Sticking with 1080p 60hz for the foreseeable future? Whichever is cheaper, which is usually 1060 6GB. However there is an RX580 4GB on sale at Newegg for $210 with some code from the previous thread. 4GB, given Polaris has compression, is generally enough VRAM. Worst case, you may need to turn textures down to "high" instead of maxed in some future games, or any current ones that may push the VRAM (GR wildlands I think does? idk)

But equal prices, and not already on a Gsync monitor? RX580 is the obvious choice. And I'd also highly recommend a newer Freesync monitor. Even the jump from 60hz to 75hz is a huge noticeable difference.

>>66330904
Can't you just go across the border to buy stuff cheap?

I don't plan to OC (or only marginally so, maybe I'll turn on "multicore optimisation"). A bigger cooler would mean changing the case. Can I get a better air cooler than the U12S that isn't any larger and doesn't cost a lot more? I also like the look of Noctuna's mounting system which is why I want one of theirs. The 212 etc looks horribly fiddly.
>Memory is slow
OK, I've swapped out to 3000MHz
>PSU is too cheap imo
I was told Seasonic is very reliable, 620 should be plenty for a single GPU system, and I don't need or want full modular etc. What would I be paying extra for?
>Do you have a point in getting an i7 over a Ryzen 7?
Overall I value per-core/4-core perf more than multicore. Better for emulation, VR, etc. My development workload is multicore but not to the same degree as video encoding etc.

Also I'll probably want to add a hackintosh partition at some point and don't want to deal with AMD hacks (I know it's possible, just more trouble).

I'm not looking to buy gaming gear right now. This build is primarily for work at the moment with a view to improving gaming performance later on.
>spend less on your cpu
I'd rather overspend a little right now and get the extra single-core/4-thread performance. Look at benchmarks for current games on older CPU generations- it's always the per-core performance that hurts them, not a lack of cores. I don't upgrade often so I need it to last.

I'm going to go against the consensus here and say that I wouldn't want to buy a new sub-4K monitor anymore. Having said that:
1. Some people REALLY love high frame rates- if you haven't tried one, go demo a 144hz monitor somewhere.
2. 27" is small enough that you'll probably need to apply scaling, which mitigates one of the benefits of 4K (more work space). I'd want 32"+.

>>66331095
60hz just isn't enough for gayming, so that rules out 4k.

Why not the Nixeus, Monoprice, or Mbest though?
Nixeus is a good quality AHVA, has adaptive overdrive, and their warranty and QC are some of the better ones.
Monoprice has HDR, albeit 8bit+FRC and it's TN.
Mbest is the lowest latency and response time IPS monitor you can get (not just lowest Freesync, lowest compared to Gsync monitors afaik as well. Could be wrong tho).
Assuming you're not fucking up getting Freesync when you have an Nvidia card, here.

>>66331096
VR is 90hz and not all CPUs can reliably drive 90fps minimum for the smoothest experience.

>>66331193
Sure. And if it fails so hard it won't POST, it then tries lower timings until it can POST.
Once you have working memory settings, it will remember that and not cycle timings anymore.

If that's not what's making your POST times long, it could be a faulty motherboard or BIOS. b350 Tomahawk had a bad problem with that on early BIOS (or production runs?).

>>66331206
I'd like 4K and would be happy to play like 1500-1800p upscaled if I had to, but 60hz just isn't enough.

The thing is that you can do like 1800p downsampled to 1440p and it looks VERY similar to 1800p upsampled to 4k. But you also benefit from being able to play at a higher framerate since there are 1440p 144hz monitors but there aren't even 4k 75hz monitors.
I play 2560x1600 downsampled to 1920x1200 in most games and it's the same concept. I also have a 4K TV I use as my second monitor so I can try the two side by side and the 4K upscaled doesn't look terribly better. It'd be less of a difference if I were on 2560x1440 and downsampling from a bit higher resolution.

G-guys I have no idea what happened to my Alienware X51. It had green pixels then on a reboot it wouldn’t boot and gives consistent beeps. I wish I knew what was wrong. I thought maybe it was the graphics card but shouldn’t it stilll load from the on board graphics?? Meaning it’s the ___?

I’ve been thinking I would try to build a new system using the i7 and mobo but now I don’t even know what’s wrong to know what to replace.. scared I may be better off starting a new... wanted opinion if it’s worth the effort to keep if I would even be saving money it’s an i7,3770, GTX660 8,GB DDR3

I’m pretty upset about the whole thing and don’t want to be without a computer but right now spending 1000+ on a computer seems financially selfish.

hmm, it's been taking a long time for every time I've rebooted since I built it Saturday. I have the RAM manually set to 2933 MHz and XMP on so I don't know why it's trying different frequencies

>>66331258
Well, don't give up on your current system until you're sure it's dead. Yank the graphics card out to rule it out as the culprit. Try to find a motherboard manual, look up the meaning of the beep pattern and/or any status LEDs that might be on the motherboard. Remove and reinsert the CMOS battery, etc.

Also try reddit /r/techsupport or the buildapc discord.

i need a new cpu and itx board, after selling my i5-6600k and thinking id be fine with my G4560 in the htpc i realized im not.

im leaning towards i3 because now they are quad core, i dont overclock anyway. is the i3 good enough for daily tasks and occasional gaming or do i need to pay the extra $60 for the cpu and settle with a 1060 3GB rather than a 1060 6GB?

basically: i3-8100 & 1060 6GB or i5-8400 1060 3GB, which one is better overall? i won't be upgrading for the next few years and i only play gta4/5 and csgo because i rarely have time...
>>
>>66331312
>i3-8100 & 1060 6GB or i5-8400 1060 3GB
If you must choose, I'd go with the former. New games really love more VRAM, and there are also other differences between the two models.
But I'd strongly encourage you to save up a bit and get both. The i3 will be fine for right now but you might regret it in a couple years. i5 will last you a lot longer.
>>
>>66331266
Uhhh Gamer's Nexus did this test and anything less than a 7700k or 1700X was not enough for a consistent 90fps minimum for 99.99%+ of frames, IIRC.
Actually think the 1700X was slightly lower than that.

Your 4c/4t Haswell or even Skylake is not going to handle it when even a 7700k doesn't always deliver 100% of frames over 90fps despite having nothing running in the background and even internet i/o and other basic services disabled. You seem deluded, dunno what else to say.

>>66331282
Vega56 is slightly better performance at 1440p for AIB cards, and overclocks slightly better (though worse power consumption overclocked), and 1440p Freesync monitors are anywhere from $100-$300 cheaper than Gsync. Perf/watt is roughly the same as long as you're not using one of those "OC BIOS" that heavily overvolt inefficiently, as well.
Makes no sense to buy a 1070Ti unless you already have Gsync right now and hasn't for the past few weeks.

The AIB Vega56 cards are way better than the reference blowers that throttled and were clocked way too low, and drivers have improved performance considerably compared to the latest Nvidia drivers on top of that.

So if you're comparing to 1070Ti and current 1070Ti prices, Vega56 is the easy choice right now unless you already have a Gsync monitor.

>>66331312
i5-8400 and 1060 6GB. If you can't afford that, you just shouldn't bother as the other two options both suck.
But for CSGO and GTA5, I don't quite understand why the G4560 isn't enough. It should be enough with a dGPU.
Why don't you just get a 2400G, if you just need an upgrade from the Pentium's iGPU?
>>
>>66331183
>it's always the per-core performance that hurts them, not a lack of cores.
Incorrect, and that's why i5s now have 2 more cores than they used to. Per-core matters less and less with new games.
There isn't any point in getting an 8700K that you won't overclock.
>>66331258
If video card is dead, buy a new one. If your board, CPU, or RAM is dead you should get a new system.
Investigate the debug beeps first
If you don't get anywhere remove the video card and run off integrated
If that doesn't work you probably need a new PC
>>66331282
Only get AMD cards with FreeSync and vice versa
>>66331312
Why would you sell a 6600K judt to turn around and buy an objectively worse processor? You are a real fucking retard
Anyway, couldn't you upgrade the G4560 you have to a 7700?
>>
>>66331371
>There isn't any point in getting an 8700K that you won't overclock.
First: Even if I don't heavily OC it right now, I could always change my mind in a couple years. Get a slightly better cooler if necessary, delid, and start tweaking. I don't mind paying a little extra now in order to keep that door open.
Second: If I do decide to upgrade earlier than planned, I'm told K chips hold their value better.

This might not be the best place to ask but I don't want to start a new thread. Is disabling SMT on a Ryzen 1600 bad? Is there any long term effects? The only way I can play Battlefield 1 is with it disabled because there is some problem with Ryzen CPUs, I guess.
>>
>>66331282
>Isn't this also the price range of the 1070ti? Is it worth getting the 56 over it if I have a Freesync monitor?
To clarify better, only reason you should be using 144hz Freesync with an Nvidia GPU is if you're poor and going to lock games to 144 or 72 fps. Otherwise you're going to see tearing in the 80-100fps, or sub 60fps range.

If you already have a Freesync monitor... it's an obvious choice to get an AMD card when the price/performance is similar, which it is right now.
I know some people who have Nvidia GPUs and just get Freesync because they can't afford Gsync.

>>66331389
>I could always change my mind in a couple years
Almost no one who buys Intel k CPUs actually does this. The people who OC are enthusiasts who do it from the start. I only actually see people do what you're saying with AMD CPUs since there's more unlocked CPUs/boards and they tend to be budget to begin with so you get more value.
It'll make more sense to get a new 7nm CPU. Less than a year from now 8700k performance will be superceeded by the 3700X just like the 8700k and 2700X superceeded 7700k performance beyond what you could reasonably overclock the 7700k to.

Overclock the 8700k and you're just going to draw 250watts to underperform a 125watt 7nm 8 core.

>Is disabling SMT on a Ryzen 1600 bad?
Bad in that SMT is good and you shouldn't disable it.
Some benchmarks show games getting a few % lower FPS with SMT enabled, but benchmarks don't represent real world usage.
In the real world you have things running in the background, and things like even your internet i/o, that all use CPU and make use of the SMT to keep the game running smooth.
>The only way I can play Battlefield 1 is with it disabled because there is some problem with Ryzen CPUs, I guess.
It should work fine. Maybe you just need to update BIOS if it's a microcode issue?

But no disabling it won't hurt your PC. Is this some widely reported issue on their forums or something for a new update of the game?
>>
>>66331341
yeah thats what i had in mind, if i buy both used i can still stay under $450
>>66331356
the dGPU is very not enough, the i5's was not either. i was only able to play csgo properly with the dgpu. i need an upgrade both for gpu and the cpu - the g4560 is in another machine anyway. I am thinking of the 2400g, even though it's not on par as the 1060 (either) it would be like half the price of total costs so im considering it

>>66331371
i had the g4560 as my daily before, but i guess i also had less free time then so it felt okay. keeping the good memories in my mind i thought with an increased free time i'd still be okay, turns out i was wrong. there's nothing wrong with acting back on fond experiences
>>
>>66331389
If you don't OC now there is hardly an advantage over Ryzen
Also, Ryzen socket support should be around for a couple years so they would hold their value the best because you can keep the motherboard
I really can't find a logical reason to do this since in any situation you end up shooting your foot by spending more than you had to
Either
>Buy an 8700K and do a full OC
>Buy an 8700 and run stock
>Buy a Ryzen 7 and do whatever you want since you have a free cooler so you can't lose any money
>>66331419
Disabling SMT means less power usage and less multithread performance (multithreading increases multicore performance and power draw roughly by 40%)
It won't hurt your PC but I would keep it on whenever possible because free performance

Anon I really do appreciate you taking the time to advise me but I don't mind paying ~19% extra now to keep open the possibility of a free 10-15% boost (Free aside from cooler cost, and coolers can be reused). That's enough to make it worth it. (Actually it's more than that since the K is slightly faster at stock than an 8700)

Yours is a fair perspective, but in a few years you'll probably cuss yourself out for not paying that $70. I can't wholeheartedly recommend that you get the i3. I went with a Haswell i3 back in 2014; it worked great back then and I can still play recent games, but looking at the 100% CPU utilisation I can see that it was the wrong choice.

Quad channel makes no sense for a few reasons:
-Your memory slots will be full

-8GB sticks are usually the best in terms of performance

Not like you need it with a locked processor lol
>>
>>66331708
>that's only gonna look ghetto
Because I like my case now, there's no window version and the guys on YouTube make it look pretty easy. I just don't want to pay so much for a small piece of tempered glass and I don't want plexiglass. Just didn't know if the temperatures in the case would break normal glass.

Aesthetics only unless you get a 360, which has more surface area than any air cooler
The wrong parts are that it costs more than air and performs worse than custom
Also, the pump can break, coolant can slowly permeate through and evaporate, and tubes can leak (unlikely, but no amount of aesthetics justifies it)

Nope, NVMe is not going to noticably speed up load times of any software or operating system compared to SATA SSDs.
You are more likely to run out of space for progams and have to use HDD which would be a lot slower overall (unless you do StoreMI but that still has downsides)

Please help me, will this get the job done? My laptop recently broke, it’s urgent that I need a computer. But at the same time I want to get a decent gaming Pc if I’m spending this much money.

My budget is pretty much what you see there. I can’t reallg afford too much higher unless you can convince me the upgrade is worth having no computer longer.

I'd recommend a 2600 with B350 motherboard over 8400.
You don't really need anything other than a stock cooler on a locked CPU: consider spending that money on a better motherboard or something instead
Current gen CPUs like fast RAM: You should get 2666MHz RAM instead(or 3000MHz if you get Ryzen)
Now that you can get a 570 for about the same price, I'd recommend that instead of 1060 3GB: either that, or spend the extra to get the 6GB version.
Evga B3 is very nearly housefire tier and should be avoided at all costs. Especially since that particular unit seems to be severely overpriced: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Qb8j4D/seasonic-focus-gold-450w-80-gold-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-450fm for instance is so much better that it isn't even funny. Alternatively, you can get Evga B or any seasonic bronze-rated PSU instead and save a little money.

Hey thank you. I’ve acrually been doing some research since I posted that. I changed my graphics card to this one since it has 4GB and seems to have good reviews. What do you think?The total went down after this new build though, so I guess I can get a 6GB graphics card if you think I really should. What do you recommend?
Changed the fan as well.

I also changed the power source, thank you for the heads up.

I’m not seeing that motherboard you are talking about, perhaps it’s not compatible with my build?

Here’s the new build

If you're referring to the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q 27" 2K WQHD 165Hz IPS G-Sync monitor, which costs aroud $700, then I can recommend it but only if you have the spare cash and a 1080/1080Ti GPU to back it up for gaming.

If you do, then its the best g-sync IPS panel you can buy for gaming. I compared the colour accuracy to my Dell IPS (which I use for photo editing) and it's actually quite good. The only problem is poor contrast due to blacklight bleeding, but for goaming you don't care about that, as a lot of people up the brightness to see things more easily anyway.

If you aren't building a fucking supercomputer or server, motherboard is largely irrelevant just as long as it works for your build. Spending $200 extra on a "gaming" motherboard won't give you as much as benefit as spending $200 or more on a graphics card.

>I am thinking of the 2400g, even though it's not on par as the 1060 (either) it would be like half the price of total costs so im considering it
The 2400G is A LOT better of a choice than the 8100.
Not only does it have an iGPU that's perfectly capable of playing CSGO at like 100+ fps,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64haDhnie4E
But GTA5 at close to 60. More around 60 on "normal" settings instead of "high" or 900p.

It's often on sale for like $130, and it will give you a much better upgrade path in the future.
The iGPU difference between 2200G/2400G and Intel CPUs is just... incomparable.

You could also consider something like the i5-8400 or 2600 plus a GTX 1050. 1060 really sounds complete overkill for what you play. But given your budget is tight, 2400G and upgrading later sounds like the best option for you.

On launch its performance on Ryzen was an outlier bad, but I thought they patched it...?

Anyway, like I said, even if a game performs worse with SMT off in benchmarks, you should generally still leave it on because it will handle background processes better and generally maintain better minimums in real world usage. Maybe that anon has a pirated unpatched version of the game.

Strix Vega56 is almost surely Hynix HBM.
You can still probably overclock it to the 900ish range... just likely not 950+ or 1050+ or whatever you were hoping for.
You can still get +/- GTX 1080 performance out of it with an undervolt and overclock. Just if you want actual 64 overclocked performance in 99% of games, you need the Samsung HBM.
but desu probably not worth it. AFAIK you can't set core voltage lower than HBM voltage, as AFAIK the HBM voltage is controlled by the Vega die. So to get those high Samsung HBM clocks, it's at high voltage, and you can no longer undervolt the core, and you use A LOT of power, like 70-100w or so, for that extra 6-8% perf.

>>66332244
It's okay... but spending $180 on a 1050Ti when you can get that RX580 4GB for $210 is mega retarded unless you need PCI-only power.

>>66330480
Saying Vega 56 is $400 MSRP and 1070Ti is $450 MSRP is extremely misleading.
$400 was promotional MSRP, and really it was $500. AIB cards wound up being more in the $480-$580 MSPR range.

Should just remove MSRPs from OP anyway, as they are misleading.
1060 is $230 MSRP, same as RX580, despite generally being the worse buy unless someone already has Gsync or has no plans to upgrade from a no-sync monitor. It implies that closer to MSRP = better buy, which is really misleading.
At this point, all GPU prices have come down enough that it's pointless to list MSRPs in OP.

>>66333453
Yes, 2600X is a major upgrade over Sandy/Ivy for everything.
In RCPS3 you will have to fiddle with config files to get expected performance sometimes (less so with 2600X than 2700X, oddly. For some reason it mainly messes up with 16 threads but 12 threads not so much), but it otherwise works.

The Nixeus edg 27 or whatever for overall best Freesync. Has adaptive overdrive like Gsync monitors, and Nixeus has good warranty support and QC. $430 and is on sale for $350 sometimes.
That Mbest korean monitor on ebay. $300 and has extremely low response time, input latency. The lowest response of any 1440p 144hz IPS, as far as I'm aware.
The new Monoprice one has HDR support with 8bit+FRC, though it is a TN.

I've heard people getting better results with undervolting... SenseMi wants you to stay under 67C, IIRC, to clock higher. It's incredibly odd and so new and different that I'm not exactly sure. Ryzen overclocking in some ways behaves more like a Pascal GPU than traditional CPU.
>will voltage offset work alongside normal XFR voltage and clock speed scaling and such?
Yes.
You could certainly try PBO maxed, and setting like a -0.05v offset. If that isn't stable, try -0.025v. Ever.

heavily mitigates 0.1% minimum frametimes i.e. microstutter, and on top of that has a pretty outsized effect on ryzen vs intel

i would say 2133 is disgusting, 2400 is my absolute cost-saving bottom of the barrel minimum, the ideal is 3200 cl14, and going higher than this usually comes along with higher CL values which means it's not worth it for the small margins on top of a higher risk of memory instability and data corruption even with really high-binned memory

>>66335758
Should still do 60fps minimums for a while now. So still pretty good for 1440p.
Though newer CPUs are much better performance, 4c/8t at Haswell level IPC or greater is still going to hang on for a while when it comes to "good enough". Will be a long while until they turn to stuttering messes like 4c/4t CPUs, if even.
>>66335804
Next gen consoles will almost surely be 4c/8t or 6c/12t at most, though.
The 2400G is like... 4x more CPU performance of those consoles. Double the IPC, and nearly 4GHz instead of 2.3GHz of the Xbox One X.
It's likely to be 4c/8t at around 2.8-3GHz which would give it almost 3x the performance of the current generation's best.
Why would they add more cores for no reason when that's all the CPU performance they'd need?
I could see them being 6c/12t or even 1c/2t simply to give the OS and such an extra core or 2 so games themselves get complete access to 8 threads.

i5-8400 is good value if you can't afford more, and depends to perform better in prebuilts where you can't min-max so much yourself to get the most out of Ryzen.
But a 2600X with fast RAM only costs like $40-$80 more total and gets you way better performance in every way, even gaming, as well as a better upgrade path since AM4 is supported until 2020.

If your grandparents only gave you X amount to upgrade a PC and you can't sell lemonade to increase your budget, i5-8400 sometimes being the only thing that fits a certain budget and is okay then.

>>66336268
It's not that Nvidia and AMD don't "want" to spend on R&D "because of miners". It's just that Pascal largely hit the wall of performance you can obtain clock-for-clock, and clock speeds that you can obtain. Only die shrinks will improve things.
AMD and Nvidia both invested in HPC instead as gaming perf they could deliver without simply die shrinking was largely not there.
Though obviously AMD could have improved theirs a bit. They needed to improve their CU scaling in games, and they need higher clock speeds at so much energy cost. But there wasn't really low hanging fruit for them since apparently they can't get the same "automatic" culling of Polygons that Maxwell got.

>game devs realize that a huge chunk of their cashcows have shit-tier machines
Game devs have always seemed to target a 7970 or 7850 for their minimum reqs the past few years, it seems. Some of the most common older cards that also have good performance.
>>
>>66336310
Vega56 + Freesync 144hz 1440p monitor will both be cheaper and heavily outperform 1070 + Gsync 144hz 1440p monitor.
There's no point in getting the later. Only point in buying a 1070 is because you already have a gsync monitor and don't want a monitor upgrade.

It's not a month ago where Vega costs $900 and is pointless anymore.

>>66336305
I didn't say that.
Unless you only play like GTAV and CSGO, and know you'll never play a new or upcoming game, there's no point in getting a 1060 3GB.
Lots of newer games use over 3GB, but not 4GB(at least at reasonable settings), and it shits the bed in stuff like RE7, Titanfall2, Shadow of Mordor, etc.
Even in a highly optimized game like Doom, its min fps is 30% lower than the 6GB model's, which is just a sign of things to come.

Sure you can drop settings to stay under 3GB, but it's currently far, far easier to keep settings under 4GB than 3GB. It seems like devs are mostly targeting 4GB VRAM at 1080p recently, at least as far as non-4K textures go.
>>
>>66336451
>Do you really think half a year of nobody buying a video card would force devs to improve at all?

Well in this case, why wouldn't it?
It gives you the performance you want for decent prices.

You think this is something sudden, but it's been culminating for years.
Games requirements haven't been going up LONG before this. You had games released in 2017, 2018, which were in development for years long before
>mining shit
and came out with the same sort of minimum and recommended requirements of games that came out in 2015.

The thing is... devs have actually been getting a lot better at optimizing. Yes, Intel stagnated CPUs onto 4c/8t, but also graphic cards haven't been getting as more powerful as you seem to think.
And they are often using tech for consoles, which is also 8 threads, and basically a Polaris GPU.
Games look and run way better on the same hardware that they did years ago, for the most part. Look at Far Cry 3 vs Far Cry 5.

It might have seemed like Nvidia was releasing a new arch each year or two and making huge improvements up until Pascal, but Fermi->Keplar as all to simply catch up with with older GCN. Maxwell still wasn't hugely better except in perf/watt. Otherwise the older 290X still kept up with the newer GTX 980, just not in perf/watt.

So again, don't see why this seems like some new revelation to you. We've largely just had minor optimizations and die shrinks for 7 years.

I also don't think AMD's 2020 arch will be so BTFO for CURRENT games, either. But it looks like it's going to have a massive array of features that can be optimized for to get better performance *if* it's optimized for. There's no magical way to get more raster and fp32 compute performance since Pascal.

Well the Wang Man has said they're aiming for a new Radeon release every year. But apparently that won't start until next year, unless they're keeping quiet about a 12nm Polaris refresh.

So he agrees with you. Even if it's only a ~10% performance jump, people don't like how it feels to be on the same thing so long (even though 7970 all the way to RX580 isn't a super massive change. A bit more perf per clock, better dedicated encoders/decoders, die shrink, etc.)
I moved from a 7970 to RX580, and wish I had upgraded to an RX480 sooner now that I see there were a lot of things I didn't realize I was missing because I was just looking at the 40-70% gaming FPS increase.

But also, the time between now and Pascal's release isn't much longer than between Maxwell and Pascal.
2014, September, 24th for GTX 980
2016, May, 6th for GTX 1080.
So the 1180 release date isn't that behind compared to those. But yes, if not for miners, but really FAR more to do with the conclusion of memory fabricators making GDDR6 or any VRAM too expensive, we likely would have had a June/July release for the 1180, if not honestly the beginning of this year, instead of what's looking like an August release at the earliest.

But there's virtually no R&D gone into the 1180, from the indications I see. It's a Pascal die shrink with likely a GDDR6 memory controller, and possibly async compute support (which would actually be a big deal, but it's been a long time coming). It's NOT Volta. It's almost surely not going to have tensor cores.

>>66337021
You will have to play on medium for quite a few games to stay over a constant 60, like even in Titanfall 2.
I would seriously not recommend it. I'd much more recommend 4gb RX570 or 580.
There was one the other day for $210 on Newegg with a coupon code, though I haven't checked if it's still on sale or not.

Or get a used card. I'd even recommend a 970 over a 1060 3GB, as much as I hate to recommend that. At least it +500mb more and is cheaper.

Yeah, but even 300USD is a lot of money for them and I doubt a chromebook would have more power. So you claim that the CPUs won't even be able to browse the web and play HD media smoothly or what? I've tried the laptops and it seemed that their disks are at almost 100% all the time, so I hoped that changing drives (30USD for a 120GB SSD and they are currently only using 40GB) would solve the problem. I'm just not 100% sure i5-3210M and i3-4005U won't cause some hangups on their own and if it's worth the time investment.

I don't know about Ivy Bridge, as the dedicated decoders got some improvement there, but I know that sandy bridge iGPU does not have enough performance for 1080p 60fps decoding. Sometimes not even 1080p 30fps in, say, Twitch for example.
Having to CPU decode on 2 slow cores would be shit.

But... I have no first hand experience with 3rd or 4th gen core iGPU. From what I can see, it's quite a big step up from the 2nd gen so it might actually be sufficient.

>i3-4005U
I missed this one in the original post.
But er... it's actually a worse iGPU. It sounds better, being a "HD 4400" instead of "HD4000" but it's actually roughly the same thing, from what I can tell?
I can't find info on the decoders, and how well it handles streaming video.

But the 3rd gen is actually the more powerful CPU unless I'm missing something with the iGPU.

Ultimately, the only way is to try it and see.
Windows 10 has a GPU usage indicator in task manager to see how much a site is using the video decoder. There should be a similar replacement task manager for windows 7 to try it out.
But I wouldn't buy an SSD for it until you confirm it can actually decode video well and do GPU acceleration for web page rendering well.

>>66337452
Dunno what PBO scalar 10x is because each motherboard manufacturer does their own thing.
That sounds like a good result, thuogh. So you're getting like ~4GHz all core boost in Cinebench, or what?

as 30fps? Because I don't. I consider 60fps+ the standard minimum. I don't even find 30 playable except in extremely slow paced games. But I'd still rather have 60 in something like Cities Skylines.
1080Ti can't even do 4k 60fps in an old ass game like Fallout 4.
Titan V is the only card that can *almost* reliably do 4k 60fps at max or near max settings.

2200G overclocked is about your only option.
Could maybe try to find a used/refurbished Haswell or later i5 and put a used 970 or 380 in it.

>>66338302
Yes, 300W+ on such a large surface area is really not very difficult to cool.
You should almost surely be using PBO offset on TR2, though, just like on Ryzen 2000 CPUs. But you can expect around the same 250-300W peak.
Pinning the cores may be better for a Cinebench nT run, but day-to-day performance with PBO is far better.

I also wouldn't be surprised if TR2 ends up being like 4.45GHz boost, and if you just pinned to 4GHz all core then you'd lose out on that boost. So don't, again.

Apologize for making fun of me
>>
>>66338390
>I also wouldn't be surprised if TR2 ends up being like 4.45GHz boost
I can definitely see that for the 8 through 16 core models, maybe even the 24 core model, but the 32 core model is targeting a 250w TDP. That's the same wattage as 4 stock 2700s stuck together, at around 3.3-3.5GHz under load. I can't see them rating it for more than 3.3GHz base with a 4GHz XFR2 boost at just 250w TDP. Maybe if the power consumption is unlocked (either by default or by BIOS setting) it'll allow XFR2 to do its thing and keep the CPU at exactly the cooler's capacity, but my post was a *worst case* estimate for TR2's 32 core model. In actuality, yeah, the performance will probably be much, much better.
>>
>>66338403
Stop giving me things to make fun of.

You need Gsync with those cards or else you'll be locking games to 72fps on your monitor to keep it from tearing.
Unless you want to fiddle around and keep changing your frame rate lock from 72 to 144 depending on what you're playing, you're best off just getting something that runs what you play at 72fps.

Buying a 144hz no-sync monitor, especially when you had a 750ti, was a really terrible idea.
>>
>>66338494
i really hope its the bios that will limit it. older x399 mobos are only designed for 16 cores in mind.
>>
>>66338516
I didn't buy it when I had a 750ti you dumbo and screen tearing is barely visible at 100+ fps.
>>
>>66338494
32 core could still boost to 4.45GHz (or higher). It's just its all-core boost which'll be lower.
Seems like performance could be sketchy if Windows doesn't schedule right. It's supposed to factor in whether cores have an MC or not, but who knows.

>>66338517
Lots of launch X399 boards were overbuilt and should support ~400w.
>>
>>66338516
I get that 72 is half 144 but why would you need to lock it to that number
>>
>>66338517
Eeeh, even the mATX board, the X399M Taichi, has 11 phases with 60 amp parts. That'll drive a lot of power with very little waste, I can see (at least ASRock's over designed VRMs) driving 600w+ with very little airflow on the board.

>>66338535
Yeah, individual cores will definitely go higher, but Window's scheduler is retarded when you throw Threadripper at it. It may just throw everything it can at the NUMA nodes that aren't connected to memory directly, completely destroying performance in some benchmarks.

>>66338532
O right, you had a 780 or something.
Being somewhat near the framerate of it doesn't stop tearing, though. It just changes the point(s) in the screen where it tears and how often, and the torn frames aren't visible for as long so can be less noticeable. But it's still tearing and I guess you just can't see it. Also, some games are locked to 60fps like some console ports like Dark Souls.

>>66338544
Because screen tearing happens from a new frame being sent to the monitor when it's in the middle of drawing the previous frame, as frames don't refresh on the screen instantly but instead scan from top to bottom. At half the frame rate, you display the same frame twice for two refreshes at the correct timing that it doesn't tear.

Now you can use enhanced/fast sync, and that will stop tearing... but it can also duplicate the frame that's displayed when you're running under your monitor's refresh rate. Enhanced/fast sync are most useful when you want to run above your monitor's refresh rate in a game like CSGO so it responds faster while not having the tearing.

Ryzen 2000 series dropped just a few months ago, it's really damn good, and pretty cheap to boot. The 2600 is only $190 for 6c/12t. Any X470 motherboard you buy now is near-guaranteed to support the Ryzen 3 series (all X370 boards support Ryzen 2).
If you don't have DDR4, though, be prepared for that to be the most expensive component of your upgrade; prices are absurd right now, $200 for just 16GB.

To be fair the last time I checked was a couple months ago, some other posters are saying it's closer to $160 for 16GB. Still $10/gb, but not as bad as the $12.5 I thought it was. Plus, if you're rocking 4GB DDR3, you can probably go for a 2x4GB pack for much less.

Why not just run PUBG at 900p upscaled? You should be able to get 60fps minimum on decent settings from what I've heard on a 2200G overclocked.
Or 1080p low. Isn't low settings better on that game to see people anyway?

You have the iGPU overclocked at like 1500MHz, right?

>>66333033
Lots of Jonsbo ones if you have a cool system and don't need tons of airflow.
I like my FT-03, even though I wish it was more compact without 3.5" drive support or more minimal 3.5" support. The 3.5" drive support sacrifices how small it could be.
Cooler Master came out with a new one that's like $35. There's tons of nice mATX cases in the ~$40 range, really. MasterBox Q300L, it's called. Mesh all around, so should cool well.

>>66333052
People kept recommending that fucking case to me. I'd look at it and just think

Some people really like the monolithic classic look, but it was pretty obvious it didn't really perform and wasn't optimal.

Here is the situation:
I have 8700k with Dell s2716dg. I have no GPU right now. Should I buy 1070 ti strix, which is currently on sale for price of 1070, or wait for 1180.

Or should I just get 1080 ti. I usually play AAA single player games, doom, dishonored 2, ass creed origins, etc.
>>
I still have an old Z97 motherboard (ATX). It has a PCIE x16 slot for video, a PCIE x4 slot, and an M.2 slot that supports PCIE. If I get a PCIE M.2 SSD, will that interfere with the PCIE x4 slot? I plan on using it for a SATA card.

Tearing AND microsuttering at the same time, fucking hell, do you know what the fuck you are talking about? Just fuck off with your G-sync meme.
People only need sync shit at 60hrz monitors if you are getting a high refresh monitor it already removes the problem to the point where nobody would care. Unless you are fucking rich and need to get the best of the best, the gold plated silver spoon for your mouth.
>>
>>66339544
Ah okay. Well I'd go for it, seeing as how you already have a Gsync monitor. I have a Strix 1070 and it's well above and beyond other models I've seen, including the EVGA SC2.
I imagine the 1070Ti is the same story.

I'll never understand why people do this to themselves. Why even ask? You have to be aware you have more money to waste than sense.

>>66339695
Why is it that much?
$530 is okay for the Strix or Nitro, I guess, if you don't want to OC and just want good stock performance.
Other models should be around $450-$505.

>>66339766
is memory b-die?
$70 PSU... why don't you get like a $35 gold 550w? They're on sale for that price like twice a week.
Maybe you should just get 2x4GB memory, too.
I'm guessing you already bought the case.
$600 just seems like a whole lot for a 2400G build without case and an only 240gb SSD.
>>
>>66339796
its definitely not the cheapest Ram but i know it's compatible and I'll pay extra 10 -20 for RgB

And I think i want to stick with dedicated vega graphics and then hopefully by like black Friday I can get a rx 580 or 1070 for a reasonable price. i think that beats overpaying for a 1050 ti today

Would having B-die make a noticeable difference? The cheapest one on the QVL list for the Prime is about 50 euro's more expensive than the one I have listed now.

Upgrading an old build so I'm just listing all the parts for context. Plan on upgrading my GPU, but currently nothing can really lock 1440p/144 fps like I'd like.

I know I'm overspending on the board if I'm only getting the 2600x, but I figure I'll get a high end x470 and just upgrade the CPU to w/e the 'best' Zen 2 is.

Nice trips
>What location are these prices?
Washington state, we have an online sales tax because our legislature is ruled by faggot jews that seem to think taxing cross state commerce is a state right and not a federal right.
>Any particular reason for 1060/1070Ti over 580 or Vega56?
I'm honestly just scared of spending that much money on an AMD GPU. My friend has owned a couple AMD GPU's from a year or two ago and it always seemed like the games were more moody in regards to performance because of game studios utilizing/favoring nvidia tech more. I'm also not aware of which brands/models of AMD cards are the good ones with great reputations etc. I'm not sure exactly why I trust AMD processors so much more than the GPU's but I just do even if it means getting raped by G-sync.
>What even is your monitor already when 1060 was a consideration that got changed to 1070ti?
I kept seeing the 1060 listed as a recommended card for modern games and it's kind of spooked me. I only have a 60hz monitor but I'm afraid that if I get a 1060 6gb I'll be buying gear that is soon to be not good enough and that I'll also be completely locking myself out of ever upgrading my monitor or anything. The 1070ti is absolutely overkill but since I don't want to upgrade my PC for several years maybe absolute overkill is the safer option so that I just don't have to worry and I'm not chasing specs the entire time.

If I overkill my build and waste like $200 on shit I'm not optimally using I'll still be happy. If I spend $1500 on a build and next year I'm tuning graphics settings in order to hit 60fps I'll be filled with regret for not just shilling out the extra money for a better GPU.
>>
>>66339766
I don't know why you would spend more on RGB memory and still get a 240GB SSD
Also, change PSU to G3 650 since it's the same price and better
>>66339820
D15 or a 360mm AIO unless you are open to doing a custom loop in which case you can do up to a 420 on top and 360 in front
>>66339867
Paying for RGB makes no sense if the kit isn't B-die since you are sacrificing performance
>>66339870
G3 650 is the same price lol
I would strongly consider a 2600+B350 so you can get a 570 or 580 instead
Cheaper and objectively better:

B-die doesn't need to be on QVL like Hynix dies desu. The cheapest CL14 kit should be fine
It would make a much more noticable difference than RGB, that's for sure.

faster ram makes a massive difference on APUs.. You can likely overclock to 3400 with tight timings, or at least get tight timings on 3200.

Or just buy this refurbished and add an SSD, sell the RAM and replace it with better stuff.
4chan won't let me link it, though. It's on woot.

But I'm also not actually sure you'll get faster RAM running on that older b350 board. You'd have to search for others experience with 2400G on that board.

>>66339870
>https://pcpartpicker.com/list/DjWTMZ
Get 500GB SSD for same price, duh.
Or get an NVMe for that price if you're using StoreMi. But if you're using StoreMi you should be using a faster HDD. That's a retarded ass price to pay for 250gb.
>$143 RX560
>single fan
Eh... it's okay but there's been good GPU sales lately. Refurbished 1050Ti for $120, new RX580 4GB for $210, though they expired earlier today. But point is if you look for sales, you could snag yourself a much better value GPU.
>2600X

>$210 for non-bdie
Why?

I'd buy board, cpu, ssd(not THAT SSD, the 500GB MX500 for $100 from Staples), case, now that they're cheap. Maybe wait around a few days for gpu, ram, power supply to get a better model/price.
Don't feel you're getting a good value at all. You should be able to get that monitor, 500GB ssd, 2600X, etc, RX580 for that price or less.

Just disable hairworks. 7970 and 290X aged better than any GPUs have.
And lately AMD has had an "AMD optimized" tesselation setting in their driver.

>I kept seeing the 1060 listed as a recommended card for modern games and it's kind of spooked me.

Uhh.. doesn't buying Nvidia in general lock you out of upgrading monitor since you have more limited, more expensive options?

If you're going to stick with your current monitor and no plans to upgrade it, get 1060 6GB or RX580 8GB whichever is cheaper, likely the former.
1060 6GB and RX580 8GB are both still going to run games at between high and max settings at 1080p 60fps for quite some time.
Same way the 7850 or 7750 has been "minimum requirement" on like half of games released in the past 3 years.
Look at how good the new Lesbians of Us game on PS4 looks. That's not even RX570 level performance running those graphics. Better graphics is an optimization and art problem, not compute problem, for the most part. I think devs have come to accept that another GCN level jump in performance isn't coming any time soon.

>>66340125
>Why? The monitor I was planning to get is the BenQ XL2411P.
Why wouldn't you save $60 getting an RX580 and Freesync monitor if you're getting a new monitor? Or get 240hz better quality for that price?

ITS AS LOUD AS FUCKING REFERENCE BLOWERS like I mentioned earlier. And not just loud, but the pitch of the sound is very annoying.

Better off getting a Vega56 which'll undervolt and overclock to 1080 performance, and most of the AIB cards have actual decent coolers for it.
Unless you already have Gsync, but if you already have Gsync then just get a decent 1070Ti instead of a shitty 1080.
