  1. I am reusing my cooler from a previous build and its quite a decent cooler (definitely better than stock). I'm confident that if I were to overclock the ryzen 1400 i could probably get 3.8ghz out of it.
  2. I would gladly get a ryzen 5 1600 but in my region it costs like 60 euro more than the ryzen 5 1400 and being a student my budget is a bit limited. Also with a gtx 970 the difference in performance between the 1400 and 1600 should be negligible. Quick question. The b450 motherboard im getting has only 2 dimm slots so I was thinking that for now I will get a single 8 gb ddr4 stick so that in the future i would be able to upgrade. Will performance be impacted greatly by using a single channel 8gb stick or should it be fine?
  3. I dont want anything with 8 cores. At this stage in time I just want a good cpu for gaming. I was thinking of getting the i3 8100 due to its greater single threaded performances but the fact that it only has 4 cores and 4 threads worries me.
  4. I am going to upgrade my pc and I am currently deciding between the i3 8100 and ryzen 1400. I will only be gaming (apex legends and other battle royales) and the graphics card is a gtx 970. The i3 with an h310 motherboard and ram is only 10 euro cheaper than the ryzen with a b450 motherboard. What do you suggest I get?
  5. As king mustard said get a non K model. You can get a lot more value in the used market. If i was you I would try and get either a used i7 2600 or i7 3770. They can be found for under 100 pounds nowadays and will give you a huge performance increase. If you want you could also try and find old sandy bridge xeons. These are basically just i7s with a different name and without the integrated gpu and which are usually found cheaper. An example of which is the xeon e3 1230 or the xeon e3 1270 which can be found for about 60 euro online.
  6. Id say the i7 3770k or 4790k would still be able to push over 60 fps on bf1.
  7. God i wish i lived in the usa : https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-Compact-Graphics-ZT-P10700G-10M/dp/B01LLAJ8PU/ref=sr_1_5?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1534859057&sr=1-5&keywords=gtx+1070
  8. Pretty good combination honestly especially if you are going to play at 1440p or ultrawide.
  9. I'm going to be in med school which is why im interested in the surface go. Also my sister does have an ipad which she can lend me so i guess i would still be able to use those medical student apps on ios.
  10. weight: id be ok with something around 2 kg screen size : preferably a 13 inch laptop but id be ok with a 15 inch one Battery life : I'd say I would like it to last about 6-8 hours since in some cases i wont be able to find an outlet.
  11. do you think the surface go would be good for a university student using it for note taking and general browsing or would something like this (which is about 100 euro cheaper) be a better option? : https://www.amazon.de/HP-Pavilion-15-cs0202ng-Notebook-i3-8130U/dp/B07D5NGW95/ref=sr_1_80?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1533384450&sr=1-80&keywords=Laptop&refinements=p_36%3A40000-60000 I'm more inclined towards the surface as it is much more portable and wouldn't be that much of a drag to haul it around university.
  12. Next month I'll start university and im looking to buy a decently specced laptop with my budget being around 500-700 euro. I'll mostly be using it for office work and general browsing. I'm from malta so I'll either buy it locally or I can buy it online from either amazon uk de or it. Any suggestions?
  13. I know what you are talking about: just last month i would turn on my pc and the fans would turn on for a split second and then turn off and on again. my specs are pretty similar to yours, i have an i5 2500 and a gigabyte h61. I searched a lot of forums and it is apparently a problem which many old gigabyte motherboards had. You could try switching out the memory or using different dims, it worked for me.
  14. The benchmarks I saw were of hardware unboxed and ozbox in which even a 780 was about 20% faster than the 1050 ti. Sources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eNVv2yhDVE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_Ym0KY07ac
