  1. Mid point nvidia gpu?

    good times were when the 70 series cards were the $350 option....
  2. Mr.Meerkat's Arctic Blue VS Bananasplit's Northern Bee

    i keep needing to refer to this thread for benchmark scores, such a usefull resource to have
  3. csgo 120 plus fps?

    the source engine will use the threads, but it prefers fewer, faster threads over sevral weaker threads, here is a picture from the benchamark shootout between me and Mr Meerkat which pretty much shows that: Blue is his Artic Blue build with a 3.8GHz IIRC R7 1700 and yellow is my I7 4790K at 5GHZ. we are using diffrent GPUs as well so its not a super comparable result but the GPU dosent play in to CS:GO massively to be honest
  4. oh, forgot to add, that difference is one or two FPS with BOTH cards overclocked, at stock the 1080 smashes the 1070TI but once both are overclocked, yes BOTH, the 1080 isnt winning much:
  5. csgo 120 plus fps?

    nope, G4560 is stronger single thread, not by a lot though. the Ryzen build would give better performance though seeing as CS:GO can use every thread you dedicate it
  6. drop it to low or medium and it should play most games, and all the esports games will run on high settings, even BF1 will run maxed out at a 60+ avrage: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Gigabyte/GTX_1050_Ti_G1_Gaming/8.html this is however on a I7 6700K machine but still, its not a bad card and its hitting around 45 fps or more maxed out in most of the games tested at 1080p once overclocked the difference becomes just one or two FPS in most cases, i used to tell everyone to stay the hell away but honestly its not too bad to save $30 or so and get a better SSD or something, at least if you plan to overclock. that said, overclocks are NOT guaranteed in any way so results will definatly vary on that one. depends on if you need a GPU right now, if you do then get something used now, get a used 1080 for €430 or so which is what i did, amazing value or you could get a lower end card like the 1050TI and hold out on that if you can deal with lower settings.
  7. csgo 120 plus fps?

    you want an overclockable chip? sure the cost is nearly the same as for the locked I5 because of the motherboard
  8. its perfect for esports and so on, can do high settings in quite a few titles too tbh
  9. csgo 120 plus fps?

    the I5 is a pretty dump choice here, seeing as the G4560 will handle CS:GO perfectly fine. this build, but with an I5 is about $200 more, i dont see the gain being worth it really when this will do it

  11. csgo 120 plus fps?

    you realize an I5 is over 3 times the price right? *edit* my bad, only a bit over twice the money
  12. Could you explode speakers by playing something too loud?

    Well you can destroy then, but they won't explode much, you can rip the membrane or smash the coil by bottoming them out too hard but that's about it
  13. Razer launched "Gaming" oriented WiFi Router

    This looks like what you would end up with if you excessively applied the smooth tool to my TP link router(its actually not horrible somehow)
  14. Out of the Loop Build

    sure, thats what id do tbh, id just go for max performance for the money and then upgrade the rest to match
  15. Gauging public interest, what case?

    well thats GG Define C frame out of the question basically, like i said the Define S would be a good pick IMO, seeing as its mainly just a thiccer Define C with more room for watercooling, sadly has no PSU shroud though but nor does the R5
