  1. Ryzen 5 2400g apu

    So what's the budget/country for everything? Going to want an ASrock Pro4 motherboard, or MSI Tomahawk board for the SoC VRM heatsink, and maybe for display port. I also don't think the R5 2400G is worth it over the 2200G for pure gaming.
  2. 980 Ti Upgrade Time?

    having more monitors won't affect performance If you're using NVENC to do streaming pick up a cheap 1080ti soon, probably near $600
  3. Hitting 90c on a 6700k with a noctua nhd-15s

    Take off/open the front panel of your case and remove the side panel of your case. Skylake also has poor TIM under the IHS. Liquid Metal would likely drop 15-20C but it's probably not worth it for that CPU.
  4. 980 Ti Upgrade Time?

    The 980ti should be plenty for hitting higher fps at 1080p, the 1080ti/2080 is totally overkill for it. Is your 980ti not overclocked to near 1500mhz?
  5. It's really not worth it to go for the R7 on what should be more budget chips anyways. Performance difference certainly wouldn't justify it. What we really need is a Ryzen APU laptop with GDDR5/6 or HBM2 for the system memory...should get it up near what would be a mobile RX 560
  6. If you're looking at Ryzen laptops the Matebook D seems to be the one to buy The Ryzen 7 chip is really not much faster than the Ryzen 5 chip, few more GPU CUs, and like .1ghz on the CPU, same cores/threads https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834324036&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-Notebooks-_-N82E16834324036&gclid=CjwKCAjw54fdBRBbEiwAW28S9i2tG7whrDcAGQdfPOsL8MsJRq-lfrZqE3oMp02DnmRPQuhm1TfMmxoCIxMQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  7. Then most decent IPS displays will have 100% sRGB and be fairly comparable. The only other major difference may be brightness, but that doesn't matter in most cases either. Which is why I'd highly suggest just getting the decent 4k display. There's 3 other 4k displays that are around $400 and will all be slightly better than the $300 display, but I personally would not really buy them. I'd go for a 40" 4k display... https://pcpartpicker.com/products/monitor/#r=384002160&A=2&sort=price&page=1 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/LLqbt6/lg-27ud68-p-270-3840x2160-60hz-monitor-27ud68-p
  8. There's really either fine($), or professional($$$), the in between is not really worth it. Which seems to be what you're after. Do you need 100% adobe RGB?

    No modern CPU supports windows 7 officially/easily, you can install and use windows 10 without a key for free If you want good and cheap get an R5 2600 If you are only gaming at 1080p 60hz an RX 570/580 will be fine PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mQWByX Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mQWByX/by_merchant/ CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz 6-Core Processor ($164.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock - B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($135.98 @ Newegg) Video Card: Gigabyte - Radeon RX 570 4GB Gaming 4G Video Card ($171.00 @ Newegg) Power Supply: SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Gold 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($71.11 @ Amazon) Total: $612.97 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-09-19 18:30 EDT-0400
  10. Unless you are spending $1000 on a professional like 10-bit 100% adobe RGB 1440p display, the colors will be fine on the cheaper 4k IPS display, and the picture quality will be higher because 4k has about double the pixels as 1440p
  11. Well where are you buying from if 4k displays are over budget? Your choice then is a 4k 60hz IPS display or 1440p 144hz IPS display PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/RpYQLJ Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/RpYQLJ/by_merchant/ Monitor: LG - 27UD58-B 27.0" 3840x2160 60Hz Monitor ($295.89 @ Newegg Business) Monitor: Nixeus - NX-EDG27 27.0" 2560x1440 144Hz Monitor ($432.08 @ Amazon) Total: $727.97 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-09-19 18:09 EDT-0400
  12. Building a Gaming PC

    What is your monitor resolution/refresh rate, and what are you doing with your PC besides gaming? The R5 2600 is the best CPU for the money right now, the Ryzen 7 Chips would be better for streaming/production stuff. Intel is going to have the best 144hz gaming, though not by too huge of a margin, say 100fps for ryzen vs 120+fps for intel in the average AAA game
  13. GPU | Overheating

    Your case has no airflow, just take off the front panel or the side panel, preferably both
  14. If you don't own the display what budget/country for the monitor?

    What monitor resolution/refresh rate? What do you need your PC for besides gaming?
