  1. The pc is going to be a media center in a living room. Purely video streaming and movie viewing. It's for a senior man, so no gaming at all. i3 9100, 16GB of RAM. Do I need to buy a didicated gpu for 4k, or will the integrated gpu be sufficient? Thank you.
  2. Well, as I have said, choises in my country are limited...
  3. Thanks! In the and I have bought: AMD Six Core Ryzen 5 3600X 4.4Ghz AM4 BOX ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING Corsair Vengeance LPX 32G (2x16G) DDR4 3200Mhz CL16 Black Corsair 650W 80+ GOLD RM650X Modular 5 Years Warranty Thanks for your help !
  4. Oh, yeah, thats... an understatment. In my country the choise is pretty limited. There are no MSI Tomohawk MoBos. There are almost no MSI board here. The only 2 I cold find IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY are MSI B450M PRO - VDH V2 MSI B450M BAZOOKA PLUS RGB (But it's... far. And few) We have pretty much ASUS/Gigabyte duopoly here. Can you advise something else ? I can't find 3600 either. It's 3600X only here. But if you say 3600 is sufficient, I'll take the 3600X, Now I have noticed זכרון - Corsair Vengeance LPX 32G (2x16G) DDR4 3200Mhz CL16 Black. LPX is even better with NH-D15 Also, what's your opinion on Corsair RM550x 550W PSU 80+ Gold Modular ?
  5. Thanks! But I would be difficult, as price in my country are a bit different. Like, 2000$ is a basic gaming PC over here. And not particulary swanky one. But I would be happy to hear your opinion - I'll intent to leave my old: Case: Fractal Desighn Define R5; PSU: ThermalTake Smart SE 730W Gold; Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 (although, I need to check how do I mount it.) HDD: Samsung 1TB 860 EVO, 4TB WD Black; GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1080 WindForce OC I dont see any reason to upgrade those parts. As for upgrade, I'm a bit torn between 3600x and 3700x. It's 2 cores more, but it's 50% more expencive... MoBo: Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE looks nice. RAM: Corsair Vengeance PRO 32G (2x16G) DDR4 3200Mhz CL16 RGB. Thats 690 USD with 3600X or 815 USD with 3700X (in my country) Are those good choices, or if you can advice something better in that price range I'll gladly listen. Thank you !
  6. No, I think brand loyalty is a stupid concept, and nothing is set in stone. I'm just used to Intel being the default (as I have said, my knowlage is 6 years old). Thanks guys, I'll look closely into AMD.
  7. My trusty old Z97 MoBo have died, hinting me that I should finally upgrade. As someone who have not updated his knowlage on PC parts since buying one in 2014, I need help deciding on new parts. I'm not a gamer(anymore), I don't care about gaming performace (Even if I do play, it's either on a handheld or ancient crpgs). I am an engeneering student, and primary reason why I dont just do everything on laptop, is conviniece of 3 monitors. I use mostly text editors. Some AutoCad. So far I have used i7-4790k (without oveclocking it) whith 16GB of RAM, and I never felt a need to upgrade. I really dont care about estetics, I have a closed silent case anyway. I also dont care about overclocking, I just want to buy new parts, shove my pc under the desk and go back to work. With everything going on, I'm on a tight budget, and pretty price sensetive, But I am willing to pay for a value if I have to. First question - i5 vs i7 - How big is a value difference between i7-9700k and i5-9600k ? I sea lot of pretty negative reviews of i5, but I don't see why. 6/6 cores seems pretty reasonable, is there something I'm missing ? (i9-9900k is out of the question) Second question - k vs kf - Is there any difference between k and kf besides lacking of GPU.Considering I do have external GPU, should buy a kf ? Third question - Z370 vs Z390 - From what I saw, the difference iis USB 3.1 (which is nice to have, but I barely use even ny 3.0) and WiFi (Which I cant stress enough how much I dont care about). From what I have seen, the big difference is that all the fancy versions of MoBos are Z390, but as I need a mobo and no a christmass tree, thats not really a factor. on the other hand, I do value quality. So should I get a Z370 or Z390 ? Thank you.
  8. Hello. I need an advise. I need good and not expensive wireless headphones. No need in mic, and I don't really care if they are "gaming" branded or not. preferably not. I know that wired will give better quality audio, but due to way I use them they must be wireless. I use for music, movies, some gaming. Nothing competitive, not audiophile. Between 200-300$ USD. Also, I was advised to get Sennheiser RS165. Are they any good ? Would be glad to hear advise, thank you.
  9. Intel 540s Series M.2 SSDSCKKW240H6X1 240GB SSD
  10. Grey+Black. The ssd is the cheapest. Is Intel 540p will be OK ? I know Samsung is best, but it's kinda expensive.
  11. Intel Pentium G4560 + Stock cooler Gigabyte GA-B250M-DS3H Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 2400Mhz CL14 Corsair Force LS 240GB Corsair 450W Active PFC Modular 80+ Bronze CX450M PSU Corsair Carbide 200R Black This is the PC I am going to order. Any corrections ? (The fact that everything is Corsair is coincidence)
