    difference in msi vs zotac geforce 2060

    I'm using a zotac 2060, honestly nothing too bad to say about it. I watched THIS video from tech deals and the benchmarks show that there's not much of a performance difference, temps are good on the zotac card and I think the value is pretty good.
  2. Alright thanks. Ill stick with the same RAM.
  3. A while back, I bought 2x4gb stick of 3000mhz patriot RAM. ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0157UPYZ8/?tag=pcp0f-21 ) and was designed for " the latest intel and amd platforms " Now I have a need to upgrade to 16gb( using 4 sticks in total). On amazon it says designed for intel x99 and 100 series platforms. Have they changed the RAM and will it still work on Ryzen? If not what RAM would you recommend? Any advice would be appreciated. Here's my build: Ryzen 5 2600x, Gigabyte B450M DS3H matx mobo, patriot viper 2x4GB DDR4 3000mhz RAM, Zotac Geforce RTX 2060 6GB GPU, NZXT H500 white,CM 500W PSU, https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Kwondant/saved/ ( excl. CPU cooler, fan and PSU ).

    1060 6GB or RX 580 8GB?

    I have been upgrading my PC to the point where im only keeping the storage, current upgraded parts are: Ryzen 5 2600X Gigabyte B450M DS3H MATX mobo 4x4GB DDR4 Patriot viper RAM @3000mhz Adata 240GB SSD and SG Barradcuda HDD. Seasonic modular 620W 80+Bronze psu NZXT H500 Also some custom cables When I look at reviews, they basically perform the same, with some doing better in some titles than others. Will it actually make that much of a difference which one i buy? Ill get either this superclocked 1060 https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/tJyxFT/evga-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-sc-gaming-video-card-06g-p4-6163-kr or a sapphire pulse card: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/y2DzK8/sapphire-radeon-rx-580-8gb-pulse-video-card-11265-05 or the nitro+ version. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/sF648d/sapphire-radeon-rx-580-8gb-nitro-video-card-11265-01 Edit: Im using a 1080p monitor.

    Ryzen 5 1600x or 2600?

    Thanks to everyone who replied, much clearer choice now (☭ ͜ʖ ☭)
  8. Hi, A friend is telling me to get the 2600 because he thinks its better for gaming that the 1600x, but the 1600x has a higher clock speed and here it gets better results than the 2600. Opinions? Edit: I already have an AIO I can use for the 1600x
  9. So the ryzen 3 1300x is selling for more than the 2200G. As far as I know have the exact same specs ( apart from the graphics ofc ) is it because the 2200G produces more heat or something? If they are the same I might as well purchase the 2200G. Anyone know why the 1300x is worth more than the 2200G? https://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-YD130XBBAEBOX-Wraith-Stealth-Cooler/dp/B0741DLVL7/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1535384452&sr=8-5&keywords=AMD%2BRyzen%2B3&th=1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-YD2200C5FBBOX-Wraith-Stealth-Graphics/dp/B079D3DBNM/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1535384754&sr=1-2&keywords=Ryzen+3

    what brands are you loyal to?

    Pretty much always use AMD CPUs Quite like CMs water cooling solutions and PSUs. Still use my iPad but I use an S7 Edge. I'm weird
  11. Awesome. So future-proofing, and more features. Thanks, also I'll use my CM Nepton 120XL to overclock it. Cheers for the advice.
  12. Thanks for the recommendation, why should I stay away from the A series mobos? EDIT: Nice price point for an upgrade like that, thanks man!

    How do I overclock?

    Great step by step guide!
  14. Hey, I'm going to be upgrading my CPU to a ryzen 3 1200 ( or 1300x, unlikely though ) and i've heard that it can support up to 2667MHz of DDR4 but you can enable XMP to get it to work with 3200MHz RAM. I believe that AMDs ryzen CPUs benefit a lot from higher memory clock speeds, but will getting closer to that 3200 limit cause diminishing return? Any recommended brands that have a good value for money? I'm looking to get 8GBs of DDR4 but don't want to spend any more than £100 on RAM ( I know that dual channel is better but I cba to pay more especially how much they go for right now ). Just need some advice on what to get, as it's a lil confusing. Cheers!

    Upgrading CPU+ Mobo

    Alright, thanks man. That was one of the things that I really didn't like about the athlon, very little upgrading compatability. Huge help btw, much appreciated!
