  1. [ Just bought one of the last brand new genuine Microsoft XBOX 360 wired controllers to use as my PC gamepad, after many days of consideration I decided on it! Looking forward to playing Jedi Fallen Order with it this weekend ^^
  2. That is very far from being a budget alternative in a whole lot of countries... not all economies are as good as USA's.
  3. Crippling the CPU on purpose from a feature that's universally adopted in order to profit more from it is not the same as having to downgrade the CPU tier because silicon is unable to achieve the needed specs. i5's and i7's both should have HT because to Intel it's literally a switch already to turn it on, so you'd have 6c/12t and 8c/16t parts, the difference is in core count as it should be and not as Intel done for ages with their quadcores where HT was the only difference when all those i5's could have it enable. Cache and cores and out of the box frequency is already a great way to do product segmentation since it makes sense as not all silicon can achieve the same specs however SMT and HT both are no longer depended of silicon, it's like stated a switch to turn on and off at hardware level. AMD is doing a much better job.
  4. You're justifying the artificial product segmentation? Intel should make HT standard already, since Skylake it no longer depends on silicon purity to be enabled. They are trying to overcharge you for a feature that's present on every other present day CPU, AMD brought it to their entire line up already and so should Intel specially at the current condition where they are getting behind. Qualcomm, Apple and any other CPU out there on multiple devices already counts with some sort of multi-threading capacity per core, Intel is the only one behind in their greed to profit as much as possible.
  5. Yes, the second 1x8pin is optional, usually meant to assist with more extreme overclocking... you'll likely not come through any issue though so it's very safe to give a go.
  6. Ah this motherboard again, gosh why is this thing selling so much.... can you return it? this motherboard is the second worst on all the X570 chipset line up, the internet is over-flood with issues with it. Bad memory support Horrendous VRM and Power phasing Crappy BIOS A lot of RMA'ing The best if you can do here is return it if possible and buy a proper motherboard.
  7. Likely since it can do far more operations than the HDD can.
  8. Judging by your alternatives on that website and your budget, the best unit you can go with should be this one: https://www.eponuda.com/kompjuteri-napajanja-cene/cooler-master-mwe-gold-550w-mpy-5501-afaag-eu-napajanje-cena-477885
  9. Ray Tracing is not a nVidia technology, games uses DXR which is part of Microsoft's DirectX portfolio. All nVidia did was create dedicated hardware to improve performance on it, but if AMD can figure out how to do it on software level just as good that could give them the upper hand.
  10. Do you have the Crucial BX500 on your region? It's the best out of the cheaper SSD.
  11. Do you already have the GTX 750 Ti? Premiere Pro requires nVidia video cards, but the 750 Ti is really dated by now.
  12. Are you using the same Windows installation from before? You could have issues with drivers and registry entries if the system didn't adapt itself properly to the new hardware.
  13. Well the Elite is a great option if you are planning to OC it to 5ghz. You can continue to use the GTX 970 with any z390 board.
  14. The "Founders Edition" Vega cards are awful at everything, no don't buy an overpriced V64 in a terrible reference cooler that throttles doing anything. OP, what applications will you use exactly? it really matters what you're going to do since nVidia has CUDA which is used as the main hardware acceleration in stuff like Premiere, while OpenCL based acceleration AMD cards perform vastly better, in these situations the Radeon 7 can even buy a fight with the RTX TITAN / TITAN V. So figure out what card your system likes best but I'd pretty safely go with the Radeon 7 here, it's GPU comes from 8000$ or even more Instinct GPUs that failed the validation, they weren't meant for gaming but sure as hell were born to do some great hardware acceleration and compute. About drivers being good or bad, I mean you might not have the best experience ever but nothing a DDU in safe mode can't solve if it gets to the worse of it.
