  1. 9319 for Graphics Score alone in 3DMark Demo TimeSpy. 21791 for Graphics Score alone in 3D Mark Demo Fire Strike
  2. I've used a 34inch 1440p for a month. Its just too big for me right now as i go a dual monitor set up.
  3. 5700XT. The price difference is about $35? I'm more wondering if there will be a big difference in video and gaming quality. I've used a 1440p monitor on a 34inch before for a month-ish when I was living away and the image definitely seemed sharper than what I was used to but now, I've forgotten and I can't really remember. Also that was a 34 inch monitor. Wondering how much difference there would be on 27 inch.
  4. I am currently using a cheap 60Hz 24 inch monitor. I want to upgrade to a 27 inch monitor with 144Hz. I've heard that Gigabyte Aorus monitors are pretty good and so I'm considering on buying them. I can't decide between the 1080p and 1440p resolution. Both are the same IPS panel, same 27 inch size, I believe the only difference is that one is 1080p and the other is 1440p. Would I see quite a big difference in image quality and sharpness in videos and games if I use a 1440p monitor or is 27 inch a bit too small in size to see a big difference difference between the two resolution compared to 32 inch and such.
  5. Yes, the RAM is clocked at 3200Mhz. As for bottlenecking, I'm not sure, but the video where a person tested the RX 5700XT in Apex said the performance was the same between all 3 CPU he tested with, the 3700X, 3600, and 8700K. As for Heaven Benchmark 4 scores, I've found a score of 6700 using EVGA 2070 Super and a Ryzen 3600.
  6. Yep I know that Apex is poorly optimized, but other benchmark/testing videos also used the Ryzen 3600 and got those results I was mentioning. As well as my heaven benchmark score being far below expected for a 2070 super has me concerned.
  7. I'm getting lower than expected frames for my ASUS Strix 2070 Super. I've seen some benchmark fps testing from some videos and my card isn't getting anywhere near it. I've seen RX 5700 XT get over 200fps in Apex Legends and the 2070 Super is known to get better frames than RX 5700 XT in Apex Legends. However, I've never seen my frames go above 170 and my average is at 117fps at low/competitive settings, whereas, Hardware Unboxed got 129(?) average fps at high settings. Other videos also seems to get results similar to HWU, much higher than mine. I benchmarked my card using Heaven Benchmark 4 at 1080p extreme settings, my results were 117 average fps and a score of 2989. Online, it seems other peoples scores with the 2070 Super are around 6000-7000. Is there something wrong with my card? I have latest drivers installed. Also my card is on stock (factory OC) performance bios and gets max temp of 63C during Heaven Benchmark 4 Using Ryzen 3600, 8GBx2 G.Skill 3200Mhz RAM, Only using M.2 SSD, 750W PSU, GPU powered by 2 separate 8pin cables
  8. Could I ask what your card is and what its temp is at idle?
  9. Hello, I've currently got an ASUS Strix RTX 2070 Super Advanced. I'm not sure if this supports zero rpm mode as its not the OC version, but I don't know why it wouldn't. Can anyone confirm that my GPU does have a zero RPM mode and does anybody know how I can change it to that setting without having MSI Afterburner running in the background 24/7. Its at 38C idle and spinning at 1100 rpm.
  10. Its not coil whine, because while my GPU does have a bit of coil whine, I know what it sounds like since I hear it when I play BDO. It does not sound like coil whine, it sounds more like a constant whine from wind than from a coil. My GPU is also very clean, unless you mean clean between the cooler fins, because I haven't checked that, but highly unlikely how little dust there was on the fan.
  11. I've checked my RPM, its at 800RPM for my GPU fans. Also my fans are clean, very little dust buildup. I also really doubt its whining due to dust build up as its a problem that comes and goes. I can recreate the issue by afking long enough my computer goes to sleep by being idle, and the issue occurs when I power it up again.
  12. I have an ASUS Strix RTX 2070 Super Advanced GPU that I have been using for about less than a year now. Recently, everytime I leave my computer on and afk until it goes to sleep from idling, after I power it back on, there is a whining sound from my GPU. I think its from the fans. It isn't coil whine since I know what that sounds. Last time I fixed this by unmounting my GPU and mounting it back but I don't want to do that every single time. Does anyone know what could be the issue and know how to fix this without remounting my GPU or know how I can put my GPU into zero RPM mode when all I'm doing is idling away on browser or youtube? Edit: I found another way to fix this is by shutting down my computer for like an hour and powering it back on. However, restarting did not fix this issue.
  13. To my knowledge XC cards use a reference PCB. If the FTW3 is using a custom PCB I'm gonna assume it has better performance in temperature and clock speed. Would that be a reason to spend $20 more for the FTW3 model?
  14. any other difference other than that? different heat sink, pcb, clock speed?
  15. As title says. Whats the difference between EVGA's XC Ultra and FTW3 graphics card? There seems to only be a $20 difference.
  16. I guess the better comparison is MSI Gaming X Trio vs EVGA XC Ultra. Both cost exactly the same.
  17. Well I do care about customer service but I also question how useful it would be when I'm in Australia. Also the EVGA FTW3 Ultra has a price premium of $75 compared to Gigabyte and $30 compared to MSI. Just wondering if that price premium is worth it over something like the MSI Gaming X Trio. I've never used either Gaming X or FTW3 series so i have no clue regarding their build quality. I'm mostly concerned about Gigabytes card as there seems to be many people reporting problems especially problems with its fans.
  18. So I plan on getting a new graphics card and I am currently looking at two cards in particular, Gigabyte Gaming OC RTX 2070 Super ($635) and the MSI Gaming X Trio RTX 2070 Super ($680). The MSI one does cost about $50 more but it seems to be a higher quality product. I want to know if Gigabyte and MSI makes quality, trustworthy graphics card. I've read many reviews saying the Gigabyte Gaming OC are very good cards but I've also read many comments about them having issues with fans breaking, fan rattling, coil whine, just overall quality being poor. I've also read people warning to avoid Gigabyte 10XX series card in general. I haven't seen many reviews of MSI though so I am confused. So I would like any thoughts, comments, opinions of these two GPUs. I wouldn't mind paying $50 more for a much more trustworthy, higher quality product, but only if Gigabyte cards aren't as trustworthy as people say they are. Edit: Theres also the Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2070 Super for the exact same cost as MSI X Trio as well as EVGA FTW3 Ultra and ASUS Dual RTX 2070 Super for $30 more but preferrably choose between the Gigabyte and MSI. Gigabyte vs MSI. Which brand is better for GPU in terms of quality?
  19. Is windforce not a good series or something? I was just mainly thinking about the $50 increase from a high end 2070 to a low end 2070 super but still a 2070 super regardless. Can a higher end 2070 can come close to a low end 2070 super in terms of performance ?
  20. I was looking at the 5700XT as it only costs $470 but I really hate the blower style fan and thermals are important to me. I've used a MSI Aero GTX 1080 before and as a blower style fan it would hit 94 degrees celsius relatively easy even in PUBG. I would definitely consider it it there were aftermarket dual or triple fan builds but sadly I can't find any. Using Ryzen 3600, Samsung 970 Pro SSD, ASUS ROG Strix-F X470 mobo, 16GB HyperX Predator Ram at 3200Mhz. EVGA Supernova G3 750W.
  21. Apex Lengends. Monster Hunter Online. Sid Meiers Civilisation. Looking forward to CyberPunk. I do play some triple A fps games quite often.
  22. I'm currently wanting to purchase a new graphics card. I will be using it to play games at 1440p and would like to achieve closest to 144fps as possible. I am in Australia so prices are definitely higher than US. I have narrowed down to a few options but honestly can not decide which is best graphics card for me for its value. For simplicity sake everything will be in USD. Gigabyte Gaming OC RTX 2060 Super - $512 EVGA XC Ultra/Ultra Gaming RTX 2070 - $516/$531 Gigabyte Gaming OC RTX 2070 - $547 EVGA FTW3 Ultra Gaming RTX 2070 -$553 Gigabte Windforce OC RTX 2070 Super - $594 I am currently mainly looking at Gigabyte Gaming OC RTX 2070 and the EVGA FTW3 Ultra Gaming RTX 2070 but am open to new options. If anyone can tell me which is better between the two, pros and cons of each, it would be very helpful. First thing is do I even consider a RTX 2060 Super when a RTX 2070 is only $4 more? Also do I consider a RTX 2070 Super when its $47 more than the Gigabyte Gaming OC RTX 2070?
  23. Also adding, just found another keyboard that fits the bill. Magicforce keyboard using Gateron switches.
  24. I want to purchase a 60% mechanical keyboard and I've basically cleared my list to 2 final keyboards, both pretty different. I've picked these two because of availability/accessibility (i.e shipping internationally). So My choices are either a Vortex Poker 3 which has no LED backlit, PBT keycaps, Metal casing, uses Cherry MX Blue switches. The other keyboard is the AnnePro which is an RGB backlit keyboard, wireless (couldn't give a damn about wireless tbh), apparently has PBT keycaps which allows the RGB light through, uses Gateron Blue switches. Vortex Poker 3 costs around $130 USD whereas, the AnnePro costs around $90. I've heard Gateron's are superior to Cherry, especially since I really like that tactile click (more clickier tactile bump the better), but i've never used them so I can't really say. For the price, which keyboard would probably better overall.
  25. But aren't they important? Since I think realtek is my main software for sound output. And some of the intel software seems to be for my wireless/bluetooth as well as for framework
