  1. Go for the Rx 570
  2. So I'm headed out to help my brother buy his parts for his first ever custom gaming PC. We were looking at AMD CPUs due to their great cost/performance, and i noticed the local store we are going to have their R7 2700s priced at $230 but their R7 1700xs are $140. Is the 2700 worth almost double of a 1700x?

    gtx 970 or 1060

    Was that an option in the post? No? Didn't think so. For half the cost go for the 970

    2nd build / full upgrade!

    It doesn't even look good enough to use as a paperweight
  5. So I've been out of the loop with school and work for like 6-8 months now, so I'm not quite sure on whats the current state of hardware when it comes to new systems. My brother is in the early stages of planning a new rig, we don't even have a set budget yet. But I wanted to get an update on everything before we start planning. So whats the scoop on hardware? Any huge pricing issues still? Any new hardware on the horizon (like releasing in the next ~4-6 months) that's worth waiting for?
  6. SLI is generally discouraged because very few games support it, and even less to a meaningful way. Sell the 1070 and buy a 1080.
  7. 3000mhz ram is rated to go UP to 3000mhz, if its in a board that doesnt support that high of speeds it will simply run at a lower speed.

    ryzen 5 2400g question

    Current motherboards could need a bios update to support the new gen of CPUs, but other than that it ought to work

    Good prebuilt PC or not?

    No. You can build a moderately better PC, including a 6 core 8700, 1060 gb (better than the 3gb version in that) and a powersupply that isn't a fire risk (Unnamed 300w PSU, which is lower than even Nvidia's minimum spec). For under $1300, including a full copy of Windows 10.

    graphics card titles

    I would guess a 960 give or take

    graphics card titles

    Yes the first 1 to 2 numbers in a model number (ie the 9 or 10) mark the generation, and the last two are the actual model. The 1070 is equivalent to a 980ti, so much better than a 970, while a 970 is much better than a 1050 and just below a 1060.

    2 R9 280Xs for $300 - Worth it?

    Yes, multi-gpu solutions are not optimal. A single 980 would be a much better deal than two 280xs
  13. There is no reason to upgrade from a 6700 to 7700k unless you have a Z270 board and will overclock, and even then with the 8000 series out its not really worth while. Don't buy a 7700k. Get a Z370 + 8600k instead

    Looking for 27" or larger monitor.

    I own that monitor and like it quite a lot
