    Best Ram

    I'm currently waiting for this g skill trident neo ram but i'm quite sure it's going to be expensive.
  2. I'm pretty convinced on the AIO if im honest with you! Personally i'm thinking of just getting a x570 board and getting it to work right out of the box lol The amount of posts on AMD reddit with people having problems with x470 and b450 boards is crazy. I'm just scared of that little fan on the board dieing.

Anything i could change or does this look okay? I was going to change the 860 evo to a 970 m.2 but pc part picker was saying "The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled." I'm somewhat sure i would be okay but i'm not 100% sure.
  4. Yeah true. I'm struggling to find a board that i'm not going to have to mess about with bios updates and such
  5. Thank you! i'll give this a read.
  6. Okay i'll see what i can find. cl16-17 is what i'm looking for right?
  7. Some 16gb 3200mhz ram good enough?
  8. Yeah people said the new 3000 series would be the best bet to wait for so i did.
  9. You did read the part about streaming at the same time right?
  10. Hey all so i'm deciding to bite the bullet and spend some cash on a rig for gaming / streaming. I was wondering if you guys could help shed some light in helping me decide. The problem is i have no idea what to choose lol I've been looking at the ryzen 3700x / 3900x and i believe either one would be surfice for doing the job probably the 3900x for more cpu demanding games. The next confuson comes from the motherboard do i go for the x570 or get a x470? I'm personally not a fan of the little fan on some of the x570 motherboards. My budget is just over £2000. I'll be gaming at 1080p as i have a 144hz gsync monitor already. If needed i could use my current gtx 1080 if a new gpu exceeds the budget. Thanks for reading!
  11. What do you mean the prime isn't meant for gaming?
  12. Hey everyone! My current rig is 4790k z97x gaming 5 16gb dd3 hyperx fury ram evga 1080 I will be using the 1080 in the new rig as its doing just fine for 1080p 144hz but will probably upgrade that down the line! Plus i'll be using the h100i v2 for the CPU cooler aswell. So the new parts i'm considering upgrading too are i9 9900k or the i9 9700k still not sure on which too get! or should i wait for the new ryzen 3000 series? Asus - Prime Z370-A i'm not sure if this is one of the mobo's that need the bios update or not G.Skill - Trident Z 3200mhz DDR4 ram. I've been saving up for a little while now and i've finally got the money to upgrade I also know that only upgrading those parts i won't see a fps change as im not upgrading the GPU aswell. Thoughts on what i should do? have money burning a hole in my pocket! lol I've been told to get the ryzen 2700x but my intel fanboy won't allow it! haha
  13. Hey guys! So i'm planning on upgrading my rig as i'm planning to get back into streaming and the games im playing currently my CPU just doesn't seem to have the power to do so :(. Games i'm playing currently are Apex Legends / BFV / Black ops 4 / Anthem (thanks to origin premier) just to name a few. My rig currently is i7 4790k @ 4.7ghz z97x gaming 5 mobo GTX 1080 EVGA SC 16gb DDR3 hyperX fury ram @ 1866mhz EVGA Supernova 750W PSU I'm not looking to upgrade the GPU now as i bought that 1080 a couple months ago previously had a 970. I was looking at maybe going to a i7 8700k? but from what i've seen on userbenchmark and benchmarks on YouTube and such it doesn't look that much more powerful than my current CPU. I'm not sure what to do! Please help me decide on what to do!
  14. I just don't understand if i unplug it from the motherboard this should just stop as there is nothing there anymore lol
  15. Please someone help lol
