  1. Thanks for the update Nick! Much appreciated.
  2. If it matters, I haven’t received mine either yet.
  3. Hi guys, So I’m planning on building a new rig and, with the incredibly high price of DDR4 at the moment with the NAND chip shortage, do you think it would be worth waiting a little longer, or do you think prices will stay high for quite some time? Thanks
  4. I didn’t even consider that, good point!
  5. I think I may wait, even if it’s not an improvement I may find the the 1600 gets a little cheaper
  6. I was planning to go with the i5-8400 as it isn’t too different in price compared to the 1600 where I live, but I didn’t want to go for a Z370 board as I wouldn’t need the overclocking capabilities. I was tempted by the 1600 for a few reasons, the cheaper motherboard, the over locking and the more threads, as I plan to run a few servers in virtual box. The rig rig I have right now it a pile of crap, but I think it’ll last a few more months.
  7. Hi guys, I’m in the process of upgrading my build and don’t know whether I should wait or not. I’ve decided to go Ryzen 1600 with a GTX 1070 however logic would dictate that Ryzen 2 would be released around February time. Do you think it’s worth waiting that little bit longer?
  8. I've found some reasonably priced Corsair Vengance that I'll reccomend. Thanks anyways!
  9. Yeah, my mistake. I selected DDR4 as a filter on amazon, it seems that it can't filter properly.
  10. Hi There, My friend has ordered all of the parts for his new build except the memory, as it was out of stock. All that is in stock for UK suppliers (that I could find) is either 1x8GB at 2133MHz or 2x4GB at 1866MHz, what would you guys reccomend? Are the benefits of the extra speed prevelant over the Dual Channel? I know it would be ideal to get more, but he's on a tight budget. He'll be able to upgrade later though. Thanks Ps. It's a Ryzen 5 1600
  11. Forgot to mention, I already have a couple.
  12. Hi Everyone, I built my current PC in January 2015, it was on a strict budget and wasn't originally going to be for gaming, but I was entised by the glorious PCMR. Anyway... My plan for this year is to definetly get the CPU, Cooler, Motherboard and RAM so that I can get a solid platform to expand upon. I do want to get excellent performace out of the system while also having it look aesthetically pleasing. Obviously I have chosen parts that I think will be flexible, like the high wattage PSU. If I use it in future builds or add more power hungry parts it will do just fine in handling them. I just wanted your thoughts as you may bring a different perspective to the partslist. ---- PCPartPicker part list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/HtCWpb CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor (£186.99 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler (£26.32 @ Novatech) Motherboard: Asus - STRIX B350-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard (£109.89 @ BT Shop) Memory: Team - Dark 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory (£119.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk) Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£41.99 @ Aria PC) Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB GAMING Video Card (£266.48 @ Amazon UK) Case: Phanteks - ECLIPSE P400 TEMPERED GLASS ATX Mid Tower Case (£87.80 @ Alza) Power Supply: Corsair - RMx 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply (£109.96 @ PC World Business) Monitor: Asus - VG248QE 24.0" 1920x1080 144Hz Monitor (£225.00 @ Aria PC) Total: £1174.42 ---- Thank you for any feedback in advance PS. I already have peripherals, Logitech G810 and Logitech G502 **EDIT** Forgot to add, I already have a couple of SSD's, which is why there are none on the parts list
  13. My friend has asked me to put together a build for around £700 (excluding monitor and speakers). He wants to mainly do day-day tasks but also does a little bit of video editing and gaming aswell. I've put this together : https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Dw3Hyf I chose the Ryzen 5 1500X as I wanted him to have the 4c/8t aspect and (atleast in the UK) there is a £10 difference between the 1400 and 1500X. I added the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo as I want the system to stay cooler than stock and, in the future, be able to have an overclock if neccecary. The Asus Prime B350 Plus isn't anything special but I wanted him to have an ATX board and it gets decent reviews. I put 16GB of HyperX Fury Black (2x8GB) in because I feel that is the most suitable amount of Memory for systems of this day and age to have. Storage wise there is a 120GB HyperX 3K SATA SSD for the OS and programs, something I see as a necessity with the lowering cost of them. There is also a 1TB WD Caviar Blue for Mass Storage and Games. The Video Card I chose is an EVGA 1050Ti which should pack enough punch for 1080p gaming and light video editing. For the case I found the Fractal Design Core 2300, a reasonably priced and reasonably good looking case. I definetly wanted something windowless as (especially with the PSU cables) the finished product won't be the nicest looking thing you've laid your eyes on. The PSU is the EVGA 500B, again nothing special but is reasonably priced, gives us 500W and is from a reputable brand. The cables though... Finally, Keyboard and Mouse was a hard choice. I use a G810 and a G502 but they were out of the question. The other set I used to use were the 'CM Storm Devastator' bundle. They felt alright to use, looked decent and were quite cheap so I threw them in. If anyone has any feedback I'd love to hear it as I've got a few months before this will be built.
  14. That should do just fine. 1) Your CPU cooler and PSU have no price 2) You could go for a 1700 then overclock it to save some money For 4K gaming, as long as you aren't streaming at the same time you should get decent frame rates.
