  1. all am3 boards should be cheap used cause no one wants am3 boards right now check local sales on craigslist, letgo, offerup, ect.
  2. get a used 380x, shouldnt cost much more than a 380 and it will perform inline with a rx570/470
  3. i actually went from a 1070ti to a vega64(traded my friend) because of freesync, tbh both cards are basically the same when you look at average fps but in overall feel tbh i feel like my vega card is smoother and the colors tend to pop a little more, idk if im just crazy(and it might be placebo) but i have been having a better gaming experience on my vega card than i have been on my pascal card not to mention if you decide to do anything outside of gaming the vega card(i have been playing around with nick cage deepfakes) is gonna be better than the 1070ti if you get a vega64 reference aircard make sure you flash the LC bios on it as it allows for better overclocking(seen 1700mhz overclocks) and idk how well it works for gaming but there is a registry hack you can do to increase the power limit of the card beyond 50%
  4. i love my vega64 card but i game at 1080p 240hz+(going to get a benq zowie 240hz monitor for christmas) when you get it i suggest using msi afterburner to undervolt the card which allows the card to run cooler, and have better overclocks i need to look up my settings but i think i was running 1680mhz core and 1075 hbm with -93mv with my strix vega64
  5. so upgrade in 2-3 years, no such thing as future proofing, older hardware performs worse, thats the nature of computers see you say this now but you might change your mind in the future and now you are caught in a predicament where you need to upgrade sooner rather than later, i said the same thing 2 years ago and now i game at 144hz(gonna be getting a 240hz benq zowie here soon) i say go big, get a used 1070ti/1080 or vega64 and call it a day
  6. do you plan on staying at 60hz or do you want to upgrade to a 144hz panel? i say buy a used 1080 or a vega 64 and call it a day but im also a competitive esports gamer who games at 1080p low with a vega64
  7. thats dumb, he might as well just get a 1080 cause the 2070 is a 1080 that costs $100 more
  8. what kind of 1080p gaming? 240hz? 144hz? 60hz? what graphics settings? for 240hz you want a 1080ti(you want to eliminate a gpu bottleneck), 144hz you want at least a 1070ti/1080/vega64, and for 60hz you'll be fine with a 1060 6gb/rx580 8gb also future proofing isnt a thing, just buy whatever you can afford now and when you are looking to upgrade buy whatever you can afford then

  10. could have dirty power running to your psu, plug it directly into the wall if you are plugged into a surge protector or something another thing that could be causing issues is your psu might be underpowered(unlikely because your system would just shut down), and one of the cards cant run at full speed since it isnt getting enough power(which would cause low fps/stuttering) AMD recommends a 750w psu for a single vega64 and considering other people have had issues with vega not getting enough power on lower wattage psus that could be a possibility first thing id try is plugging the pc directly into the wall and see if that fixes it and if that doesnt fix than its either your psu not supplying enough power or its software related
  11. could be a bad intake fan hitting the front of your case at a certain rpm
  12. your 450w psu will be fine however i tend to go overkill on the psu for single card systems so there is room to upgrade id recommend getting an antec truepower or earthwatts 750w that way you can have enough room to upgrade to a vega64 card if needed and using less than what the psu asks for usually means a quieter system especially if the psu you get has a 0rpm fan mode
  13. it sucks that your masterwatt was defective(kind of not really) but this isnt indicative of it being a cheap psu issue or not, its not like you killed your components with a name brand psu and posts like this just make the waters even more muddy than it needs to be your masterwatt would have been fine and outside of the coil whine it powered your system and wouldnt have caused an issue if said coil whine didnt exist fact of the matter is as long as you get a name brand psu with the appropriate wattage for your system you will be fine because you have a name brand company standing behind their product, its not like you bought a coolmax 1000w psu and it burnt out your system , sorry but you kind of blew this out of the water
  14. its a debate between the tesseract the versa h22 or a coolermaster n400(a little more than $50 from what i see) thank you for the posts though
