    Looking for Suggestions and Parts review

    All of the above are reasonable builds, just at different price points. It really depends how much you want to spend. Although even the cheapest of these buyilds will achieve 1080p, 60 fps without an problem.. the more expensive builds will just last you longer. I'd say if you go with the 1660 or 1660Ti, it will only last you about 2 years. If you go with a 5700XT, it will last you 3-4 years to play all the newest games at 1080p, 60 fps. The newest Xbox and Playstation that will come out next year, will use the Navi GPU's, similar to the 5700 series, so most games will start using that as the "baseline" configuration for the next couple of years. So if I were you, I'd get the 5700 series GPU, with either a 3600 or 3700 CPU. Good luck!

    Looking for Suggestions and Parts review

    Your build is very unbalanced. You are spending a ton of money on the motherboard and GPU, and pairing it with a mediocre CPU at best. I would suggest getting a 3700X CPU instead, which is a much better CPU and much better valie. and some faster RAM, 3600 Mhz. Get the Asus TUF motherboard, as it is one of the best value X570 boards. You did not include a case.. I would suggest something from Fractal Design or NZXT. Solid cases. The PSU you chose is way too powerful and expensive. You will be fine with 550 Watt. I would suggest this: Good luck!

  3. Very good list, but I would suggest faster RAM. For 30 extra bucks, you can get a 3600 CL 17 Kit. You will get an additional 5% performance or so over 3000 RAM in some applications and games. Worth the 30 bucks in my opinion: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor ($133.00 @ Amazon) Motherboard: ASRock B450M/AC Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($74.99 @ Newegg) Memory: Patriot Viper Steel 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($96.99 @ Amazon) Storage: HP EX900 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($49.99 @ Newegg) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX VEGA 56 8 GB PULSE Video Card ($309.99 @ Amazon) Case: Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($44.99 @ B&H) Power Supply: Cooler Master MasterWatt 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply ($64.43 @ Walmart) Total: $774.38 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-08-16 12:44 EDT-0400
  4. I have this case, and I like it. Great little case. Good cooling too for a small case, but not a quiet case, you can hear all the fans inside, even with quiet components. If you want something quiet, I'd look for something else. You can go with something like the Fractal Design Define Nano, which is a great small and quiet case. It has noise dampening foam to reduce noise output. If you can put the PC sideways under the TV, you might consider something like the Fractal Design Node 202 (which is your old school "horizontal" PC case that people used to put a monitor on top of) You can definitely build it yourself, being ITX everything is a bit more tight, but it is not necessarily much more difficult. For CPU, the Ryzen 3600 would suit your needs just fine. The current Radeon 5700XT cards are great for 1440P, but also all blower-style coolers, which can get loud. I would wait for the custom cards I would suggest something like below based on the sugo13, go with sfx psu and be quiet Shadow Rock LP cpu cooler, great combo in this case: Good luck!

  5. Ok, good to know, I am not familiar with the brand personally. My point remains, 67 eur for a 550W PSU is about what you have to pay for a quality product. Is not overpriced. And I wouldnt recommend going much cheaper.

    Razer Now Has Its Own Car, Because A Toaster Wasn’t Enough

    This is so dumb. You could just buy any car, and put a vinyl razer logo on it. Also: who would want to drive around with a gaming company logo on their car? Unless you work for them and got it as a free company car or something. Makes the car seem cheaper, not more expensive. As if you won it in a gaming tournament or something. Just weird.
  7. LOL sure everyone is going to have personal preferences in terms of hardware. In these threads you usually get like 5 different config options from different people. @hello_there_123 i would not call a 67 EUR PSU overpriced by any means. And cheap PSU's are a big source of hard to diagnose problems in PC's, cheaping out on your PSU is a terrible idea. And then you recommend one that is 4 EUR cheaper by some non-premium brand?
  8. I would suggest something like this: If you want to save some more money, you can go with 3200 mhz ram, and maybe a cheaper PSU. Or try to reuse the PSU from your old systems. Good luck!

  9. So you are just reusing the case of the old PC, but not anything else? I would not necesarilly recommend doing that, as those prebuilt cases are usually bad in terms of airflow. I would build an entirely new PC. Case is usually one of the cheapest parts. Most of the parts from your older PCs are likely not compatible with modern components, so better to start new. What is your budget?
  10. To those making fun of this idea, or thinking it is weird. It makes a lot of sense, and is surely not the only military use of balloons: - They don't need refueling - They don't run out of batteries - They are cheap - They are silent - They can stay up 24/7 (until they break or Helium evaporates) - They fly very steadily, and stay stationary (depending on the wind I guess) - They can have a reasonably big payload, depending on the size of the balloon The only downside is they are pretty vulnerable, and probably need to be replaced every so often.

    help I don’t know where to post this

    I would not recommend getting a i3 (4 core, no hyperthreading) for gaming at all. Many modern games already run poorly on a 4C CPU without hyperthreading. This is a good build. I would suggest something like this. Vega 56 is great value compared to the 1660Ti. Ryzen 5 is the way to go if it fits in the budget. The case is a bit MEH, probably bad airflow. I'd spend a few dollars more for something from a reputable brand. (NZXT, Coolermaster, Corsair, Fractal Design etc. ) Corsair Carbide are good entry level cases. So are Fractal Design Core series.

    Epic Games Store has started adding Cloud Save support to games

    Jesus, you would think they could hire some programmers with all that Fortnite money, and get things like this implemented in like, a week? WTF?
  13. Yes, how very good of them. This is not a policy change at all, rather just something they are doing until this all blows over. What a big joke.
  14. Nice! This is good for competition. If they had to price them $30-$50 more expensive than the reference cards, they wouldn't be competitive anymore. I am sure AMD is selling them to board partners at a reasonable price, so they can still make a good profit at $399. It is in AMD's best interest to keep these cards at $399

    Captain they breached the CAPITAL!!!

    To freeze everyones credit by default would make it harder for the average person to open a credit card, so the credit card companies would lobby against it for sure. Never gonna happen. Don't underestimate the power of big business. These credit score companies are basically a mafia anyways. They don't give a damn about people, and are very powerful. As someone put it in the wake of the Equifax hack: if Equifax was KFC, you are not the customer, you are the chicken.
