    First Build

    Still 9700k got 2 more cores compared to 9600k. But you're totally right, Intel is screwing us over with 9th gen chips

    If you plan on recording gameplay and doing 3d modelling, I would switch to 8700k/9700k. Don't buy 120mm AiOs, they're generally worse in performance when compared to similarly priced air coolers.

    New pc build

    Should have no issues running it on max settings.

    Battlefield 5 origin question

    Start downloading and it will tell you when you can start playing. I think its 20 or 25%.

    Z35P or X34P

    Predator VA panels are infamous for terrible ghosting. Better stick with IPS because glow or backlight bleed isn't as bad as ghosting.

    New pc build

    Then its not going to be a balanced build ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    It is, but not at your budget.

    New pc build

    If you have 1200USD budget, you don't want to get 8700k. Get down to 8600k/9600k for 144Hz or R5 2600 if you plan playing on a 60Hz monitor.

    First ever build

    Good build. Although I would get higher tier cooler if you plan on overclocking 1700x. Dark Rock 4 for example.

    Is Mad Catz still worth looking into for new peripherals?

    Are they still making products? I haven't heard of them in a long time.

    How to find specific length of gpu

    Google specific models. There is Zotan Mini version which is 211cm or 8.3 inches.
  12. PopsicleHustler

    New cooler for 2700x?

    Its drawing 1.5v? Jesus Christ, how is it still alive? If you want to have a temp drop going from Prism cooler, get Dark Rock 4 or something better.

    So this happened today.....(story)

    I'm trying to figure out why would he buy "presumably" top of the line PC if he doesn't need that much compute power?

    Ryzen 5 2600 + STRIX B350F Troublesome?

    It doesn't if you have Intel CPU. Ryzen though needs fast RAM to work properly in games and other workloads.
