  1. Damn, those prices are way better than here, only 1 shop sells it lol at 99 euro's I'll do some further digging, would 5400 and 7200 make that much of a difference when it's just storing and loading games/movies etc? And would i need a different motherboard with AMD and if so what kind?
  2. The only 4tb 7200 rpm HDD from the store i'm buying from at a reasonable price would be this one: Toshiba N300 for 112 euro's, but it's full of bad reviews. everything else bumps up with 40 euro's or more, what discs are you looking at?
  3. Isn't there some weird stuff happening with AMD cpu's and nvidia gpu's? thats kinda why i was looking at intel, and since i've never bought anything from AMD Some drive examples are : Seagate Exos, 4 TB(7200) would be 148 euro's and the Seagate BarraCuda(5400), 4 TB is only 93 euro's?
  4. Posted something similar before but was incomplete and out of order/missing stuff, this is the full list Hey guys, so i'm currently planning this build and have some questions for switching out/changing some parts The thing i use my pc for is gaming, and basically looking to "future proof" my CPU and RAM about the next 5/6 years so i will only have to upgrade my GPU once or twice in the same period My display is 1440p 144hz with g-sync, so that's what i'll have to power. GIGABYTE Z390 GAMING X (rev. 1.0), socket 1151 motherboard Intel Core i9-9900K or Intel core i7-9700k Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 (i still have this one in my current pc and feel like an upgrade to rtx would not be worth it yet for 700 euro's +) be quiet! Dark Rock Slim BK024 as CPU cooler G.Skill 16 GB DDR4-3200 Kit Samsung 970 EVO Plus, 500 GB SSD Seagate BarraCuda, 4 TB NZXT NZXT H510i wh/bk ATX tower Corsair RM850X, 850 Watt Windows 10 Home So here's the questions i have What cpu that i listed would serve me best? on both the cpu's it says they'll only support up to DDR4-2666 how does that work? do i have to xmp or Overclock for it to go up to 3200? Is the power supply overkill? and if so what would be a better option? Will i need to buy "drive bays" for my HDD and SSD i'm totally unfamiliar with the concept I currently have a 7200 RPM HDD of 3 TB, and i only see 5400 RMP drives at a reasonable price currently (7200 ones are almost twice as expansive) i coudn't really find much info if this actually makes much a difference, i use the drive to store everything from movies/games/music etc have drives improved that much that i won't matter anymore? The i9 has 8 cores and hyperthreading, the i7 only has 8 cores and no hyperthreading, does this matter much?
  5. Would a intel i7 9700k suffice instead of the i9 aswell?
  6. I'm dumb sorry, GPU will be a GTX 1080 that i still have from my upgrade about 2 years ago, i'll be upgrading that probably when the next generation of nvidia cards releases, the RTX lineup seems to expensive for the upgrade i would get OS will be windows 10
  7. Hey guys, Just wanted to get some insight from the people, i've been searching arround for building my pc and compiled a list with parts, any recommendations or changes are welcome. The main reason for this PC is gaming, i have a 27 inch 1440p gsync display so that's what i'll have to power up, might hookup my old 24 inch 1080p monitor as a 2nd one(not sure yet) The reason some specs are so high is because i like to future proof my build for atleast 5 years with the exception of the GPU that will need an upgrade every 2 years ish Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 GAMING X (rev. 1.0) CPU: Intel® Core i9-9900K CPU cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Slim BK024 RAM: G.Skill 16 GB DDR4-3200 Kit SSD: Samsung 970 EVO Plus, 500 GB SSD HDD: Seagate BarraCuda, 4 TB hdd Case: NZXT NZXT H510i wh/bk ATX PSU: Corsair RM850X, 850 Watt
  8. Hey, So i've been looking to upgrade my monitor, currently this is the one that i own and use: LG flatron e2281, just a basic 1080p 60hz 8 year old monitor. But i've been having the feeling my pc is getting bottlenecked by this monitor, these are my pc specs: i7 4770k, GTX 1080 16 gb ram So i've never used anything more fancy than the monitor i currently own but i've been searching arround and was thinking of buying this one: Acer Predator XB271HU But reviews on this monitor seems mixed, some people call it the best ever, and others the worst due to ips glow bleeding etc. Anyone could shed some light on this or have a simulair spec monitor? The reason i choose the acer monitor is because it has all the stuff i kinda want for my next monitor G-sync 144 hz ips (maybe i guess?) heard it's way better than TN and 1440p resolution
  9. Mostly use for school/games/ work etc but some pretty intensive games, but thats more GPU specific
  10. Just to be sure, the update windows has brought out for this issues gets installed via the windows update program right? its not a separate download or anything?
  11. Only read about it on the webs about the slowdown, and i do store sensitive and personal data on my pc yea, so i guess it's best to update? Not using an AMD machine btw
  12. Hi, So today i've gotten what i suppose are the updates for the spectre,meltdown issues on windows 7, but i've also read people get a pretty big slowdown on haswell cpu's like mine. Should i just updated or what is the deal? I'm kinda lost and dont know what would be best Any help/opinion is appreciated
  13. Hey everyone, So i've been reading about people getting the updates for the so dreaded "weakpoint" Today i got some issues with windows update but with a little workarround i've gotten them finally, now how and where can i see if those are the updates for the CPU issue becaus it seems people with haswell cpu's like me are being hit pretty hard with a performance hit i'll send a screenshot of my update list, it's in dutch but ill try my best to tranlate! Translate from top to botom: Monthly Quality update for windows 7 for 64x based systems Security and quality rollup for .net framework Windows program for removing harmfull software for 64x systems january microsoft .net framework 4.7.1 for windows 7 and windows servers 2008 r2 for 64x Any other info you might have will be appreciated aswell!
  14. Tried to reinstall, din't make a difference, tried the scan and it gave no error. I'll try the disc scan tonight, you recommend the windows built in one or a third party program? doubt it will be the disk since everything else works fine but worth a try!
