    Why is NVIDIA doing so horribly?

    Their stock is cratering, mainly due to the mining demand drop off, but also their pricing model. Apple is also encountering a similiar pricing dilemma. There just arent enough rich people to go around. No sane person with linited means pays 1300 for a gpu. They would pay 700 for THE best gpu, but not 1200 plus.
  2. Another thing i havent seen mentioned. Ive generally found iphones to be better made and have less problems than android phones. Android phones tend to slow down significantly as they get older, and run into other problems. Iphones also hold their resale value better as a result.

    4790k in 2019

    I should add I don't OC my 4790k, never have. I could but I have a Corsair h60 cooler which does fine keeping it cool at stock speeds but doesn't strike me as very capable for OC'ing. If im gonna go through the trouble of buying and installing a better cooler id probably just upgrade the CPU too.

    4790k in 2019

    In battlefield V what would be an expected fps difference between a 4700k and 9700k at 1440p? How about how smooth the game runs? I ask because its not a comparison i can easily find online since so many generations seperate the two and the game is so new. An upgrade would be very expensive since id also need a new mobo, ram and cpu cooler. I also dont like that the 9700k has no hyperthreading. Unlike my gpu i usually try to future proof a cpu as much as possible.

    4790k in 2019

    I was looking at recommended specs for battlefield V and was shocked to see the ryzen 3 1300x listed next to the i7 4790k as an equivalent Cpu. I was under the impression the 4790k was nearly equal to a ryzen 7 2700x for gaming, but if that spec is believed its not even equal to a ryzen 5 1600. I planned to keep my 4790k for another year but im wondering if its time to upgrade, or at least wait until the ryzen 3700x is out this spring(hopefully). Is the 4790k really lagging that far behind recent cpus?
  6. Msi gaming titanium is pretty sharp looking. I almost got one before the strix went on sale.

    Rumors about Navi +

    If theres one thing ive learned its that AMD is always a day late and a dollar short when it comes to gpu’s. The reality never matches the hype. You have to go back to the r9 290x to find the last time AMD really delivered, and even then they screwed up the launch with a horrible stock blower cooler that throttled performance and sounded like a leaf blower under load. It wasnt until the after market coolers came out that it really shined. Im hoping for the best, but i would expect delays and less than rumored performance in the end. Maybe theyll surprise us like they did with ryzen. One thing different this time is its 7nm, giving them an advantage.

    Battlefield 5 RTX on!

    There is simply no way to justify 1400 dollars for a gaming gpu. For that kind of money i expect matrix level virtual reality, not a few nice looking reflections in a shooter at barely playable framerates.
  9. Poor nvidia. If they got screwed over that means they've had to lower the price of their advertised ray tracing cards. I see no evidence thats occurred. A new 2080 ti which for practical purposes is useless for ray tracing still costs 1200 to 1500 dollars. My car is barely worth that much.
  10. A few things about your build that jump out at me. One is the 1 8gb stick of ram. I know in battlefield 1 for instance that would make things run less smooth than 16 gbs. I guess it depends on the games you play but in a few games it would matter. Another is the cpu cooler. Yours might he a bit weak for a 9600k. Id research that cooler and its performance with the 8600k and 9600k. I think a hyper 212 evo might be better for 10 bucks more, if not something around the 50 dollar range that has good reviews like a cryorig h7 plus or h5 ultimate. I like my corsair h60 and thats around 50 and you wouldn't need extra thermal compound unless you screw up installing it. I would make the extra ram and cpu cooler a priority over a fancy keyboard and headphones and maybe those extra case fans. You can get a cooler master devastator keyboard mouse combo for 29 to 39 dollars and that should work fine and save 40 dollars. Also. Check out the fractal focus g case on youtube. Fractal makes nice cases and it seems to have good airflow and its a bit cheaper than the 200r. Cases are a matter of personal preference tho.
  11. Heres another build with a 9600k and an rtx 2070. This one would probably perform a little better NOW because of the 2070 but with 2 less cores and no hyperthreading it could bottleneck you sooner than the 8700k in the future.

Its what id go with. A 1080ti is double the cost of that 1070ti so youd have to make major compromises to get that and keep under budget. You might want a beefier power supply though which would add maybe 30 to the price. If you can find a gtx 1080 on sale around black friday maybe go with that of its not much more, but right now its like 150 more for a good one. Id also consider a used 1080ti if you can find a deal and youre a gambling man.

    Nvidia screwed up? Free 2080 ti?

    Just call Nvidia and ask them. Im sure there is fine print somewhere that if you dont return the defective card you will be charged for the new one. Probably when you went through the rma process. This isnt a mousepad. Its a 1200 dollar piece of hardware. My car is barely worth that much. They arent going to just write it off.

    Best GPU for i7-4790K

    I have a 1070 ti with my 4790k. I think its a good combo. The 1080ti/2080 is where i think u might see some bottlenecking in a few games like bf1.
  15. maizenblue

    Which can i get more performance out of - 1080 TI vs RTX 2080

    For 4k get the 1080 ti for the extra vram. For 1440p id just get whichever is cheaper.
