I'm planning on upgrading when Ryzen 4000 comes out. I was wondering what you guys might think I could get for my old system? How much is it worth? Complete or parted out? I like to think of myself as knowledgeable in computer hardware and systems, but I know I hardly hold a candle to you guys on this forum. I am sure I made some poor purchases on my first build and probably spent too much on some things. Hoping for everyone's input so this go around I can feel more confident. I will be keeping my monitors and I was thinking of keeping my SSD and HDD, but I'm not sure ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. I meant to put the NH-D9L on there to replace the L9a, but yeah, somehow it left the L9a on there.
  3. Budget (including currency): I’d like to spend as little as possible USD Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Games like crysis, borderlands, tomb raider, doom, etc. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): my current setup is: i5-4690k @ 4.2Ghz Asrock Z97 Extreme4 Kingston HyperX DDR3-1866 4x4GB Asus GTX 970 Strix (4GDDR5 DirectCU II OC edition) 2xSLI 250GB 860 Evo SSD 1.5TB HDD Corsair CX750M all inside an Antec Nine Hundred case I would really like to upgrade to something along the lines of this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/n9GyCL what are your thoughts? I could sell my parts on here or on eBay, but I’m not sure if anyone would want this stuff, it’s nearly 10 years old. I’d like to reuse my drives and I’ll keep my monitors (3x SB220Q w/ HDMI input) my monitors are the main reason I chose this specific 5700 XT card, it has 3 HDMI outputs.
  4. Will this be stable? Will two cards run off of a split cable like that? I mean, I guess so or they wouldn’t make it. But it just seems sketchyIt’s plugging into a CX750M
  5. Sabertooth. You can see it on the Mobo heatsink, albeit fuzzy
  6. If you want it to be beast, I would suggest you switch over to the blue/green side. Not being a fanboy, AMD makes some good quality stuff, but Intel and Nvidia are quite usually much more reliable and have better support for their hardware and software. They don't always come out on top in performance, but for the most part they either do or they are neck and neck, and they also have two giant pros over AMD: 1. Better support for hardware software/less ghosts in the machines and 2. Way less power draw equaling greater efficiency and lower temps.
  7. No not bad at all. The 970 gaming is a good board! But if you wanted to change it up you could go for something like the ASRock 970 Extreme series. Whatever floats your boat. but right now you have a good build. I would honestly only change your GPU. Get a 970 or a 290 or something
  8. I guess you could sell your 8150 and pick up and 8350 if you just wanted to keep your system kind of "up to date". It is the newer model of the 8150. It's base is 4.0GHz with a 4.2 "overdrive" or boost. The caches are set up a little differently I think.. Not sure. It's pretty much the exact same processor but newer and a bit higher frequency. Of course you would get a new warranty with it though and it will (well, should) last you longer since it would be brand new.
  9. This will be my last post I swear!! Check this out. And if you don't care about USB3.0, Here is an option
  10. Here is what I've thought up for a good HTPC. You can DEFINITELY get a different case like a fractal design mini or Cooler Master ITX cases are damn good. But I wanted a disc drive in mine so that ruled out a few cases. Also I really like silverstone's design for an HTPC case
  11. He could save a few dollars if he went with a G3220 and some cheaper (but still good) ram like Kingston or Crucial. You also probably wouldn't need any heat spreaders on your ram since the system wont really be under too much of a load running movies and stuff.
  12. Everyone know Alienware sucks and is way overpriced... $349 should be the actual retail price for this thing not a discount....
  13. Oh okay cool! haha.. I grew up Xbox soo.. I just know how those look and what they are compatible with (not much) and how they connect and stuff.
