  1. I can't believe the Titan Xp is now better price:performance than the 1080ti
  2. Hey guys, I was checking 1080ti prices and saw that nearly EVERY card is sold out everywhere. Furthermore, the 1080ti FTW3 ICX (the card I was looking at it) is now nearly $1300. Why did the prices increase so quickly?
  3. I already have VMWare to run a windows parallel, so that isn't a problem. I'm more concerned whether or not more graphically intensive games such as PUBG and Rainbow 6 would run fairly smoothly (1440p 60). I don't need extremely high frame rates or perfect 4k performance.
  4. I would most likely be getting the iMac Pro anyway, as my dad prefers Final Cut to Premiere significantly, as well as the MacOS ecosystem. My main concern is will casual gaming be a significant downgrade if I chose the iMac Pro over the build? My current system is a 4770k and GTX 760, so I would like a good improvement over that.
  5. When I parted it out, 2x 16GB was cheaper than one 32 GB
  6. Is there any particular reason? I thought it would be better, but I wasn't sure particularly why. The xeon seems comparable because of turbo boost to 4.3 ghz and I didn't think the Vega 64 was significantly worse than the 1080ti
  7. Hi all, I know I'm probably going to be burned alive for asking this but here it goes: Should I buy the new iMac Pro for gaming? Now I'm fully aware that it is not for gamers in the slightest, nor is it the "optimal" build for gaming. However, I'm most likely going to be getting this computer anyway due to the video editing my dad does (Most likely 10 core, 64 gb ram, Vega 64). I have been parting out the follow build: PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9ZbG7h Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9ZbG7h/by_merchant/ CPU: Intel - Core i7-8700K 3.7GHz 6-Core Processor ($399.00 @ B&H) CPU Cooler: NZXT - Kraken X52 Rev 2 73.1 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($135.69 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: Asus - ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($197.89 @ OutletPC) Memory: G.Skill - Trident Z RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($229.99 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill - Trident Z RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($229.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 1TB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($289.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate - Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($78.89 @ OutletPC) Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB FTW3 GAMING iCX Video Card ($799.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($112.31 @ Amazon) Case Fan: Corsair - LL120RGB LED (Three Fans With Lighting Node PRO) 43.2 CFM 120mm Fans ($98.59 @ Amazon) Other: LIAN LI ALPHA 330W White SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ($99.99 @ Newegg) Total: $2672.32 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-12-24 20:33 EST-0500 Should I save a few (thousand) bucks and just run a windows VM on the iMac pro for gaming? Or will the build I proposed be significantly more powerful in gaming performance (PUBG, Overwatch, CSGO, R6 Siege). Thanks !

Disclaimer: I don't know basically anything about a cooling loop so I set that up in EKWB config. If you're planning on spending this much on a PC, I'd do more research and hand pick each component of the loop.
  9. Titan Z- old; don't buy Titan X- usable but for the price just get Xp because it's newer Titan V- bleeding edge and only really good for deep learning or flexing on your friends with your dope new gold graphics card Titan Xp- 2 of these and you're set for overkill If you don't need monitors, add cooling loop, more storage, and upgrade CPU (if you want)

  11. Definitely depends what kind of music you're playing. For $209 it's not bad, especially if you're just learning. You don't need anything to fancy when beginning and, honestly, you probably wouldn't even be able to feel a difference. That being said, if as you pick up you decide to invest more into it, I'd definitely look into a new amp and eventually a new guitar. The amp, as many before me stated, isn't going to be powerful enough for any kind of a performance. Furthermore, the clean sounds will be thin and the gain sounds extremely mushy. The guitar should last you for a a couple years, but I'd look into getting a guitar more specific to the genre of music you like eventually, and expanding your budget to do so. You could also look into buying a used guitar and amp in the future, but I'd be wary based on conditions. I, personally, only buy used but it's up to your discretion. Overall, this is a great and beginner friendly set up to get into the guitar and learn, and it is definitely worth it for the price. That being said, I would consider upgrading the amp, then the guitar, down the line. Hope this helped!
  12. Damn what kind of deep learning is your friend doing
  13. If they're plenty for 4k then that's fine by me honestly. Hopefully the new x80 cards will allow the "upcoming" ASUS and Acer 4k 120hz monitors worth purchasing
  14. It's clearly "good" in games, but it's being advertised for deep learning. The fact that there are tensor cores reflects that its target market is, in fact, machine learning applications, and thus is most likely not a "failed gaming architecture." Not every card is made for gamer culture.
  15. It bothered me as well at first, but the differences are significant enough (atleast in my opinion) that it doesn't really matter.
