  1. With NVIDIA bringing official support for FreeSync-enabled displays today in their new driver update, I thought I'd mention how my display works.


    I have an MSI Optix G27C2, and the experience is damn near perfect. There's an extremely slight amount of motion blur, but it doesn't flicker and it works excellently. I'm honestly really satisfied. The kind of sad thing though is that this makes me less likely to buy an AMD GPU, but we'll see.

      @Syntaxvgm Whoops, looks like we commented at the same time. My questions was for @TheSLSAMG.

    is my PSU enough for a RTX 2070

    As far as I'm concerned, it should be enough. The Vengeance units are very solidly built and manufacturer suggestions tend to be conservative due to the varying quality of PSUs out there. You should have no issues.

    Best CPU for RTX 2080

    Depends on resolution, but the 9700K and 9900K are good choices. High single core performance and good core counts.

    2200G + HDMI + Freesync = N/A

    For the display running at 60Hz instead of 144Hz, have you tried changing the refresh rate of the monitor from your monitor's properties within Windows? When I tried FreeSync with my 2400G, I had the same issue and had to set the display to 144Hz from there. You get to the below menu by right clicking your desktop, selecting "Display settings",, scrolling down to "Advanced display settings" and clicking "Display adapter properties for Display (whichever number corresponds to the correct display)" As for it being over HDMI, FreeSync must be turned on in the display's OSD (on screen display/menu) for it to function.

    Lian Li Q33b alternative?

    The Q33B is a fairly unique design. There isn't really anything like it from a layout standpoint other than the Bitfenix Phenom, and that's also discontinued and it was larger due to the use of an ATX PSU. If you care more about the cooler height than anything else, the Fractal Design Core 500 and Node 304 will fit a NH-D15 or DRP4. You can still get the Bitfenix Prodigy, but it's a fairly large ITX case (though it shares a more similar layout to the Phenom and Q33B)
  6. I have a little experience here and I'd try to go for a Ryzen 5 2400G at the minimum. The 2200G is also fine, but the extra four threads do allow your system to have a bit more breathing room. The Ryzen 5 1400 and 1500X are also valid options, and you won't need the iGPU so the 1400 at $135 US isn't bad. Micro Center has the Ryzen 7 1700X at $150 though, and that's a pretty damn good deal. You would be hard pressed to find a hard bottleneck, but performance will still improve with higher end chips.

    GTX 1060 5GB without DP?

    No, that card is extremely fake. Looks like shit and it still has VGA, which NVIDIA killed off completely with the 10-series.

      @Darkman Yeah, fat chance lol

    Not at all. If you play at 1080p, you will see somewhat better performance using an 8th/9th gen Intel chip, however that's only at 1080p with high refresh rates. In all other scenarios, the performance difference is marginal at best.

    Which Graphics Card

    I'd heavily consider the RTX 2060 to be honest. It seems to deliver GTX 1080 performance and $349 is pretty much between what the 1070 and 1070 Ti cost, unless you're buying used of course. Otherwise, I'd go for the GTX 1070 Ti. It's closer in performance to a GTX 1080 which will do you better over time.
  12. It's really hilarious that Intel is taking a big muhfuggin L as the new champion of the space heater industry.

      I bought one for 99$ even, plus free shipping about 2 months ago. Such a good card. Using it for the rig i'm building for my best friend.

    Honestly, what you've been looking at is fine. i5-9600K on the Intel side (or i5-8600K if you can get it cheaper and you're willing to overclock, they're essentially the same and the 8600K is binned fine) and the Ryzen 5 2600X on the AMD side (some will try to convince you to go 2600 non-X and overclock it, but they're not really binned that well and you may as well get the best performance you can pre-overclock.

    If you plan on doing a considerable amount of video editing and game streaming, I'd go Ryzen. If you only plan on light to moderate video editing and gaming without streaming, go Intel.
