  1. Ya I guess its time then 5 going on 6 years with this system seems pretty good I guess. My issue is I tend to go cray when it comes to computer builds and I may get stabbed by my wife if she were to see the amount that this is going to cost lol.
  2. Well I am playing at 1440P and I am not looking to go AMD unless they blow the 10900K out of the water for gaming. Getting a AMD 3600 would be pointless the CPU I have now is comparable to the 3600 with out having to buy basically a whole new system. Also I am planning on waiting to see what AMD has to offer for there higher end stuff but I am just wondering if a minor CPU/GPU upgrade will get a few more years of life out of my system without having to go out and spend $3k on a new system.
  3. ya right now the RTX titans and 2080/ti/supers are expensive still but once AMD launches and Nvidia gets there production in order in the coming months people will be upgrading and selling there old GPUs driving the used prices down. And the only reason I am upgrading Is for HDR and Ray tracing. Also Im only running at 1440P 165Hz
  4. I am planning or upgrading my system In the next few months and I currently have an intel 5820K OC 4.0GHZ on a custom loop. Would it be worth going on Ebay and just buying a 5960X for about $200 and some newer higher speed ram or Is it time to fully upgrade to something like a 10900K and do a full system build. I would likely sell my whole system if I were to upgrade because because its fully hardline water cooled and the new GPUs seem to need allot of CPU to not bottle neck. If I go the 5960X root I will likely try and find a used water cooled RTX titan or RTX2080Ti if they are cheaper. If not I will wait for a 3080 and just upgrade the whole system likely move away from custom water cooling. I dont really have a budget but at the end of the day I am cheap and like a good deal and I am ok with last gen or used hardware.
  5. The Define R6 has modular Drive bays that are pretty nice https://www.fractal-design.com/products/cases/define/define-r6/blackout/ https://www.amazon.com/Fractal-Design-FD-CA-DEF-R6C-WT-Define-Computer/dp/B07H6QTZMM/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=define+R6&qid=1600260410&sr=8-7
  6. I am happy with it so far almost wish it was bigger though but my pockets are not deep enough for that .. yet
  7. So I ended up buying the Dell yes yes I got a Dell
  8. I have a custom hard loop system now and I can confirm it is a pain in the ass to upgrade anything
  9. I dont base my decisions on future possible CPUs or GPU thats why I really didnt go into my the GPU that I am planning to use. Also I plan on buying this before October. Also I rather have the i9 over the i7 for the faster boost clock and more cores. I plan on keeping this system for at least 5 years
  10. Im not going to spend the money to custom water cool an i5 also after going with the 5820K last go around I rather shoot for excess over value. If I was on a lower budget or didnt have plans to hard line the system then I would gladly look at the i5 then go buy a 3700X
  11. Most of the games I play are more CPU dependent. and I am already planning on getting a 2080ti or if the new AMD or Nvidia GPU drop and they preform to there price point I may get one of them. but for now I planning on a used/open box founders edition for water cooling. My main focus for this post is CPU I would like to keep under $600 but also dont want a budget CPU. I see the Ryzen's have more cores but there clock speeds are lower then intel but I have never overclocked a Ryzen CPU so I am not sure if the head rooms there to take like a ryzen 9 3900x to say 5GhZ. or if I should go with a 10900K instead.
  12. The game is badly coded but I with what I have I should be getting better FPS I dont know maybe I should see if there is a fix for WoW to make it utilize my hardware better.
  13. I have an intel i7 5820K that is paired with a GTX Titan X(M) and I am planning on starting my upgrades. The whole system is hard line water cooled so changing components is kind of a pain. my question is would it be worth just upgrading my CPU to an something like a 5960X or completely Upgrading my motherboard and CPU to something like a Ryzen 9 3900xt. The issue I am having is I play WoW and for some reason during raid I see dips in my FPS down into the 40-50's and it sucks. I have been rocking basically the same hardware for about 4-5 years now and it has suited me very well but I cant stand the dips. (1440p)
  14. I think it looks ugly to have mis matched size monitors also I have a dual Vesa mount that fits 2 32in monitors. If I was going to get a monitor I would prefer it be the same size or larger.
  15. Thanks for the reply I seen that on amazon form the link in rtings.com and the only sellers were 3ed party but I looked and Best buy sells it for $449 which is a good price https://www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-32-led-curved-qhd-freesync-monitor-with-hdr/6375331.p?skuId=6375331 and I can pick it up locally
  16. I have gone there have still have run in to the same issue I have been faceing so far which is the good monitors are sold out or overpriced
  17. I have a 32inc monitor already and would like to keep them the same size also I use a large deep bench and the bigger size works better with my space
  18. Ya I looked at it but its so hard to pick out a display with all the models, prices, sizes and technology. I would like to know peoples opinions weather to have 144hz is something that is required for MMO gaming or getting a better panel is more important.
  19. This makes monitor purchase almost impossible with out seeing it in person. What I have found so far is most sites like Amazon lack the needed info for picking good displays. Plus reviewers tend to lean either on the high end 144hz 1440 50inch 1ms ips Gsync RGB bla bla bl pannels or they go for bang for the buck $200 dollar options. Also I notice that everything seems to be centered around FPS gaming and Usually never accounts for the people that play MMO's or people that don't care if there may be a slight delay if that means that the picture and panel looks amazing. I would gladly make that trade any day. Monitors and TV seem to be one of the hardest decisions to make when it comes to buying peripherals and the manufacturers dont make it any easier with there naming like PC218jklmnop-lc Gaming. Because you can do all the do diligence you want by going to a review site but when it comes time to purchase and you go to type in the one you seen on the review you may not get the model you are looking for because it has a P, W, Q at the end and now you got an out dated version or your shown the more expensive option. So if any there any manufactures reading this please can you just name your panels something normal.
  20. I need it to be 32in to match my other 32in monitor and I also want something 1440p or higher my budget is around 3-$500 USD I think going over that I would rather get 2 lesser monitors that match. $800 is over budget
  21. So I am not playing CSGO or anything I mainly play games like WoW, Fallout 76, Minecraft, City Skylines, and The Sims. My monitor died BenQ BT3200Q that I purchased like 5 years ago So the monitors I am looking at are https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FBS36W2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 , https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NQG1FFB/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 , https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MY142C0/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 (a bit out of my price range but probly do able), and https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MS09LQX/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I am not sure if the 144hz is worth the extra cost over a good panel or ultra wide
  22. 34WN80C-B 34” 21:9 Curved WQHD IPS Monitor 34 Inch 21:9 UltraWide Curved WQHD (3440 x 1440) IPS Display sRGB 99% Color Gamut USB-C with 60W PD HDR 10 Compatibility 3-Side Virtually Borderless Design Tilt and Height Adjustable Stand
  23. I was thinking of something like this https://www.amazon.com/LG-34WN80C-B-inch-Connectivity-Compatibility/dp/B07YGZ7C1K/ref=sxin_7_ac_d_pm?ac_md=3-1-QmV0d2VlbiAkNDAwIGFuZCAkODAw-ac_d_pm&cv_ct_cx=ultrawide&dchild=1&keywords=ultrawide&pd_rd_i=B07YGZ7C1K&pd_rd_r=502abad9-9e5d-4ad1-adb2-0e00344e3b57&pd_rd_w=ei8bt&pd_rd_wg=ffJTh&pf_rd_p=6fa2c4b2-cf77-4ff1-a22d-406e154f5c4b&pf_rd_r=BMGERE1J8KCREWQFFWTK&psc=1&qid=1596588515&sr=1-2-22d05c05-1231-4126-b7c4-3e7a9c0027d0
  24. So my 32in 1440p IPS Display died and now I am searching for a replacement does anyone have any good recommendation for the sub $600 range. My requirements are that its not TN,1440p, or less then 31.5in I play WoW so I dont have allot of need for 1ms response times and I have been using a 60Hz for the longest so that does not bother me much either. I rather the panel look good then be on the bleeding edge.
