  1. @Herman Mcpootis @trevb0t @claudinho7 This is a finalized list. CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8 GHz 6-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock 4 CPU Cooler ($74.90 @ Amazon) Motherboard: ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 ATX AM4 Motherboard ($144.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($62.99 @ Amazon) Storage: HP EX920 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($62.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Toshiba 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB GAMING OC Video Card ($403.98 @ Newegg) Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital ATX Mid Tower Case ($98.98 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply ($64.98 @ Amazon) Total: $1113.80
  2. Does that make all 9th gen (except for the i9s) bad picks? Gotta say I don't 100% buy the argument but I see where you're coming from. I'll let him decide.
  3. Hmm. Does HT really make the processor last longer? I think the card is between the 5700XT and 2070. The 2070 Super is a little expensive. I don't think he'll be overclocking directly out of the box. I already have a Dark Rock 4 in the system, so I won't be using a stock cooler. The only difference is SMT or not. Why do you say it has better longevity?
  4. The 5700XT Is only 280mm, and the P400A takes up to 420mm. I don't have an AIO or water cooling at all so not sure what you mean by the radiator.
  5. Seems like M.2 is they way to go then. Why isn't the 9600K a good pick? It seems to edge out the 3600 in benchmarks. Also price difference between 3600 and 3600X is probably negligible enough to just buy the 3600X if AMD is what we settle on.
  6. List with changes below based on your recommendations. 3600X over 3600 for a bit better performance. Curious as to your reasons for the M.2 SSD over a 860 EVO or MX500. The 5700 XT does seem like a better pick performance wise, but my friend did have an Intel + Nvidia preference. Is a good idea to pair the 5700XT with the 9600K?

  7. One of my friends is upgrading from a prebuilt he bought almost 4 years ago now with a i7-4790 and GTX 960. The only thing I think can reuse is the HDD. This is a build I've pieced together with his preferences, but I haven't been on top of all things PC recently, so I thought to run it by this forum. He'll probably purchase the GPU first, followed by the rest of the rig w/o the monitor. The monitor is probably a future upgrade, but I put it there as I know that the rig would be overkill for the 1080p60 display he has right now. Thanks in advance for help.

  8. After looking at those I still like the HP best. Thanks for your help.
  9. As in it's only $100 more for a pretty significant upgrade.
  10. @Sorenson @YoFavRussian @GeneXiS_X The HP Spectre x360 Laptop - 15t touch Base config seems to be almost exactly the same as the HP Spectre x360 - 15-df0068nr but with a 1050Ti instead of a MX150 and a slightly better processor. It's $100 more. Is this just a weird pricing thing? It's specs seem much better.
  11. @Sorenson @YoFavRussian @GeneXiS_X Just asked about it. Battery is important. Basically decided on the Spectre. If there are any very similar laptops, let me know.
  12. Yeah looking at the Zenbook 15. No idea honestly, but I think it's better to get something that is more than capable.
  13. Location? Like... United States? No real preferred display size and battery just has to be enough for average college use. Don't mind any of the display stuff, as long as it's decently high quality (no extremely cheap TN panels). True on the gaming bit, but I don't think that's a big deal. I'll check out the Zenbook 15. Razer Blade Stealth Base is a little weak and doesn't cover a lot of things, but the Graphics version is a bit too pricey. Surface Laptop got really expensive once I started filtering it down to equal specs to the others. Actually really liking the HP Spectre x360 15-df006nr the more I look at it, it might be better suited for productivity.
  14. One of my friends has enlisted me to look for a laptop... Here's what she told me: $800-1800 price range For school/productivity Touchscreen (if possible) My own additional requirements: Decently recent i5/i7 16GB RAM Here's the list I've compiled: LG Gram 17 Razer Blade Stealth 13 Base Razer Blade Stealth 13 Graphics Razer Blade Stealth 13 Graphics 4K Razer Blade 15 Base Dell XPS 15 i7-8750H HP Spectre x360 15-df006nr HP Spectre x360 13-ap0038nr Dell XPS 13 Touch i7-8565U The Razer Blade 15 Base is my frontrunner for now (I know it's a bit overkill, but it's very balanced), but it's battery life is not the greatest and it's not touchscreen. If anyone has input or suggestions, leave a comment. Thanks in advance.
  15. I've only seen one thread about this without a posted solution. My ModMic echoes through discord when I use the mute switch on the mic. Anyone have a fix? Thanks.
