  1. Yes, it will affect your performance but only by a little. Generally FPS games will see much more of a benefit from higher refresh rates. I believe for fighting games, you just gotta practice.
  2. I'm sorry. I didn't know But like, I hope I'm not violating TOS of the forum here. If I am, I'll take the post down immediately
  3. So I tweeted Noctua and asked them when they were gonna update their d15. This was their reply (shown in the tweet) (I personally am a fan of the d15 and would love to see a new flagship air cooler from Noctua)
  4. In a vaccum no, it's not that bad. But it's VRMs are not good and I do not feel comfortable upgrading to something with more than 8 cores. But unfortunately it's quite a premium for that strix logo. Get the tomahawk, it's the best b450 mobo for your money.
  5. well, ryzen will most prolly beat intel with zen 3. and it will be a drop in upgrade with a b450 board, but on intel he'll have to buy a new one.
  6. https://www.gpucheck.com/compare-game-cpu/fortnite-battle-royale/intel-core-i5-9600k-3-70ghz-vs-amd-ryzen-7-3700x he's playing fortnite
  7. I 100% agree with him. Ryzen 4000 will probably beat Intel in performance. The R 4600 be the best gaming cpu for 200 bucks. You'll have a great upgrade path.
  8. his recommendation is spot on. Although for the PSU I'll advise you to wait until you find a banger deal (650w - 800w, gold, $80-$90) cuz buying a higher end psu will give you peace of mind and it will probably last longer and have better warranty. You also will not have to worry about power requirements cuz 99% of the systems will run easily on 600w of power
  9. Yea, your cpu is definitely a bottleneck. But before upgrading, ask yourself, is 180fps enough? Do you actually have 180hz+ monitor to view all those frames? There's no point upgrading if you cannot see the benefit. If you have to upgrade, an MSI b450 board (tomahawk and gaming max are very good) and a R 3600, or a 3700x if you actually wanna do some work like editing vids of blendering. I cannot recommend intel cuz the upgrade path is non existent ATM
  10. Ok. So, avoid the strix like it's the plague cuz that board's vrms perform terribly. The MSI b450 tomahawk is the best b450 board for ~100 bucks. If you don't really wanna overclock, just go with the board that has all the features you want. The x570 will have the most features, if you can afford it, it's not that bad.
  11. maybe tell us your price range and we may be able to help you
  12. Hey Muzik, I really love your build! It's exactly as I would build it. I just have one thing to say, wait for the reviews of the A500 before buying (price also). If it performs well, then go for it; otherwise go for the nh-u12a (single tower dual fan compact beast) or the nh-d15. If you don't like the noctua colour scheme you can go with the black chromax version. If it's too expensive for you the dark rock pro 4 also performs very well. Also take my advise with a grain of salt cuz I'm a midrange-noctua-fanboy
  13. Thank you sir, this is exactly what I will do
