  1. Well put my friend. True that with all that RT stuff 10 series will age badly, but for us who don't really care for that stuff and can get 60fps or more on 1440p it's not a must upgrade... But nevertheless I don't see myself sticking to the 1080 for more than a year... Maybe by Christmas 2021 I might jump on the 3070 train. If I find a job by then. I just quit my position at Apple Ireland due to catastrophe in Lebanon my home... Need to take care of things there...
  2. I guess will try that... Also I don't see why the hype for 3000 series nVidia GPUs... I have a 1080 and was able to play some games on Ultra @1440p 60+fps no issues... That GPU still has a few years to go...
  3. I saw a few but they scare me... Hmm... I kinda care more about tighter timings as my kit is CAS18
  4. I am already running at XMP 2.0 mode... Never OC'd RAM before... Oh well... Sadly I prefer not to sell n use that kit on one of my other systems.. Hmm... Still OC'ing RAM could be a viable option... Still dunno how to do it... Can I get timings tighter with kit I got? If so how?
  5. Hey peeps.. I come to this awesome community once again to ask the following... First here's link to my build --> here (or my sig) With that, is it necessary to upgrade my RAM to faster kit with lower timings? I heard so much that faster n lower timings makes Ryzen CPUs work less hard... Dunno how true that is. I am by no means a heavy gamer nor do I play competitively... I use my PC for occasional AAA titles at 1440p every now and then, but mostly to watch YouTube and do some photoshop and xml/css coding/design... Would love to know...
  6. Nice !!!! I just remembered that I had some more parts sitting around gathering dust : - Intel Core i7-6800K 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor - ASRock X99M Extreme4 Micro ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard - G.Skill Aegis 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory Would like to build around those. What do you think of this Setup ?
  7. Lol... Well, they are currently all full to the brim. Need to start getting rid of a few movies... Still I am wondering if I should go with the i5 ATX build I got laying around with 32gb DDR3 RAM or build a whole new micro ATX one with Ryzen from scratch which will take much longer as I cannot afford it right now.. That's what I got so far --> Here
  8. Yeah I have 10 drives in my main rig. Totalling 80TB approx. Media server as well as my everyday gaming system... The new rig will act as just for redundant storage + Retro Gaming
  9. I have Prime + UK address so yeah I rarely pay for shipping...
  10. Hmm.. I am starting to think you are right, for $50 won't find much... I have till end of March to decide. So will keep looking...
  11. The GD09B? It's one I was considering. Just seeing if a slimmer one can be found.
  12. I will be getting a low profile CPU cooler by Noctua. As PSU will see if one I already have would work on this case.
  13. If I had extra to spend I wouldn't be asking. I have recently built my main rig for 1500GBP. Don't really care about airflow as this thing won't do anything except store some sruff and run Retro Games like Retro Console Emulation.
  14. Yes exactly. That looks really nice. I knew I came to the right place
  15. I am checking. But they are expensive at 145GBP. Need something around 50GBP
