  1. Thank you. I believe that I'm going with my original plan -- UE4. I've already started learning it.
  2. You obviously haven't read the posting guidelines. Sure, we could deduce this, but it'd be easier and faster for you to provide the information.
  3. Yeah, that's a good idea, I'm just saying that we pretty much know that in pretty much all but the most highly threaded games, the R5 and R7 series will perform nearly identically. This is because past about 4.1 GHz, voltage starts to get a bit ridiculous to keep a stable Ryzen system (https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/ryzen-strictly-technical.2500572/).
  4. Probably, "Is it worth the extra $100.00?"
  5. We can pretty much just look at the 1800x overclocked to see what an overclocked R5 chip will probably be like in gaming. This is because it's the same architecture and probably will not clock much higher than the R7 chips. This means that, even though I still recommend waiting for reviews, we can pretty much say right now that the Ryzen 5s will outperform the i5s in pretty much everything.
  6. The Ryzen 5 lineup should not be all that much better in gaming then the Ryzen 7 series because the Zen core and the Samsung/GloFo LPP+ node aren't particularly good at clocking over 4 GHz. There are huge voltage spikes required to maintain clocks over 4 GHz. Up until ~3.5 GHz, though, Ryzen scales linearly, so we can look forward to great clocks on the low-end and mobile chips.
  7. There's no reason that a Ryzen build won't have similar IO to the Intel one, but, especially since it's mainly for gaming, go with the 7700k.
  8. I could be mistaken, but doesn't the 1050 outperform the 460?
  9. Yeah, scratch that. I misread and thought that you had a 600 watt PSU. There's no way a 500 watt PSU will support that.
  10. Unless there are specific games you play in which the 1060 outperforms the 480, the 480 is generally better. Another option is a Sapphire Nitro Fury. It's just about the best price-to-performance card out there at the moment. The only concern is that you may be stressing your PSU a bit with that card. I'll check how much power my system draws on average when I get home, but my system is a-okay, and I have a 650 watt PSU.
  11. Source: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/intel-optane-technology.html Yeah, it's Intel Kaby Lake-exclusive.
  12. Thank you! It worked.
  13. My main drive is a 256GB Intel 600p M.2 SSD. It is working perfectly. My HDD, however, is not. I can't access it through File Explorer, which means that I can't download anything to it. It is a 1TB WD Caviar Blue. I just built this system on the 17th, and the HDD was there even when I was installing Windows. I followed the advice given here (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/windows-10-does-not-recognize-my-second-hard-drive/11f1cf28-0320-4a5e-aabb-e66e13a7526b?auth=1) to no avail. Thank you anyone who responds for your help and kindness. P.S. The HDD is being detected in device manager, and when I click on it, it says that it is working properly. P.S.S. My full system specs are in my signature.
  14. Well, I wouldn't want to cum quietly.
  15. Well, just in case anyone but me cares, it worked, but I have to keep the PC horizontal for now (I couldn't tighten the zipties tight enough for use upright). After setting up the PC, I ran the CPU-Z stress test, and after 5 minutes, I'm at a very, very stable (it's been at this temperature since 30 seconds into the test, and hasn't wavered from it) 67 degrees Celsius.
