  1. Thank you for your help, wouldnt i need to update the bios of the b450-f? Or is it 3000 ready out of the box? Also this build is mainly a workstation PC, barely any gaming will be done on it so thats why i went for an underpowered gpu and a better CPU.
  2. Im building a PC for a friend and i need help deciding whether i should go for 3600mhz ram Whenever i check i never get a solid "yes" answer to whether i should choose 3200 or 3600 mhz The list: PCPartPicker Part List: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/2fgsf9 CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 3.9 GHz 8-Core Processor (£297.89 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM 75 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (£122.98 @ CCL Computers) Motherboard: MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard (£188.40 @ Alza) Memory: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (£182.01 @ Newegg UK) Storage: Western Digital Blue 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£59.97 @ Amazon UK) Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£52.88 @ CCL Computers) Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER 4 GB Gaming X Video Card (£188.99 @ Amazon UK) Case: be quiet! Pure Base 500 ATX Mid Tower Case (£96.48 @ Amazon UK) Power Supply: be quiet! Straight Power 11 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (£99.98 @ Amazon UK) Total: £1289.58 Should i swap out the RAM for the 3600 variant? Also feel free to recommend any swaps in the build, might change the 1650 for something better.
  3. The build is not for me. Im assuming its premiere pro or one of the common ones
  4. Budget (including currency): 1200ish GBP, can be higher though Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Image editing, video editing, maybe light games, admin things for work Other details PCPartPicker Part List: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/gqxLBZ CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor (£260.73 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X53 73.11 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (£119.99 @ Box Limited) Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX B450-E GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard (£145.47 @ Scan.co.uk) Memory: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory (£188.36 @ CCL Computers) Storage: Western Digital Blue 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£59.97 @ Amazon UK) Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£52.88 @ CCL Computers) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 4 GB NITRO+ Video Card (£213.99 @ Amazon UK) Case: be quiet! Pure Base 500 ATX Mid Tower Case (£94.03 @ Novatech) Power Supply: be quiet! Straight Power 11 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (£99.98 @ Amazon UK) Total: £1235.40 Is this a good list? Should i choose the 9700k over the 3700x? Also, does the motherboard need a bios update for 3000 support? The asus website says yes but some other places say no.
  5. Thank you, Also, i play on a 144hz monitor and play all my games at 1080p 144. Wouldnt cloning my screen for the capture card then lock my display to 60hz. Theres a method that you use your obs preview but it really lowers the quality. Do you know if theres anyway i would not get locked to 60hz, my laptop display is 120hz so i shouldnt be locked to 60 right?
  6. Sorry in advance if this is in the wrong section. I have my gaming desktop and a gaming laptop. My desktop has a Ryzen 5 3600, 16GB 3000Mhz and 1060 6GB while my laptop as a Ryzen 5 (i forgot which variant), 16GB of RAM and a 1660. I was thinking of getting a capture card (maybe an avermedia or elgato one) and have my desktop as my gaming pc and my laptop as my dedicated streaming PC. I have been doing a bit of research and i think i get the gist of how to set it all up. I am just unsure on if i will have any issues with my headset which is the steel series arctis 5. Its wireless and has a dongle which also has a 3.5mm jack on it. Can anyone explain to me how i would be able to have the capture card pick up the audio from my headset. Would i just have to run a 3.5mm cable from the 3.5mm output on the dongle to the input on the capture card. Also, would i have any issues with this setup. Sorry if this is a silly question, i just want to make sure i know what i am doing before i decide to go with it. Thanks in advance.
  7. Isnt it sufficient though, shouldnt i be able to just use my one for a bit then upgrade
  8. I'm gonna open my pc in a few to check what psu I have, it's a cx500 pretty sure
  9. I should be doing fine then with a ryzen 5 3600 and an rx5700xt Thank you for your help, i think ill settle on the red dragon card
  10. So if i were to get a 5700xt i would have to use x264, or would i still be able to use nvenc at all
  11. i use obs, shadowplay is just to get clips sincei get get my last 2 mins or so of gameplay
  12. I use my pc for some occasional streaming etc so nvenc is a +, and i use shadowplay a lot to record past gameplay Should i look into 2070s if i wanna keep those features and get the same performance as a 5700xt?
  13. What do i compare it to against nvidia cards, is it similar to a 2070
  14. The red dragon is the same same price on amazon as the msi and xfx onw
  15. Its a Corsair 500w, 80+ bronze im pretty sure, cant remember the model
  16. Its roughly the same pricewise as this XFX one https://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-Radeon-5700XT-RAW-Ultra/dp/B07YG5VGTC/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=rx+5700+xt&qid=1585860695&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&smid=A206ULAR6UT9T8&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExVUpJWU80Q0dJNSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRJZD1BMDgwMDA4MDFRT05SRUhGRDdCRFMmZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDcwMDQ3OTFVVkRaRFdIOFBPNVMmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl and this msi one https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-RADEON-5700-MECH-DisplayPort/dp/B07W86V757/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=rx+5700+xt&qid=1585860695&sr=8-9 Should i just go for preference or is the red dragon xt superiror The pulse one is slightly out of my budget
  17. Ah wow, should i completely avoid that asus tuf one
  18. https://www.amazon.co.uk/SAPPHIRE-RADEON-RX5700-8GB-21294-01-20G/dp/B07TFH6MW7/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=sapphire+rx+5700&qid=1585860424&sr=8-5 https://www.amazon.co.uk/SAPPHIRE-Nitro-Radeon-5700-GDDR6/dp/B07XGV3FL3/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=sapphire+rx+5700&qid=1585860505&sr=8-1 its 100 more gbp and i dont think the extra 100 is worth it how much better is the xt
  19. Is the different between the xt and 5700 a lot?
  20. The asus tuf xt one i linked is cheaper than some 5700s, but apparently it has bad cooling and its apparently the worst xt. Should i go for it since its so cheap
  21. Is the asus one i linked worth it despite all the negative reviews on cooling etc
  22. Looking to upgrade from my 1060 I have a ryzen 5 3600 with 16GB 3000MHZ Ram Im currently looking at the rx5700 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-Radeon-5700-Boost-Ultra/dp/B07XVMXBQW/ref=sr_1_14?dchild=1&keywords=rx5700xt&qid=1585858191&sr=8-14 these 2 models https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Radeon-RX-5700-Gaming/dp/B07TZKT8DQ/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=gigabyte%2Brx5700xt&qid=1585858165&sr=8-1&th=1 ) Should i go the little extra for the xt versions https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-Space-grade-Resistance-Auto-Extreme-Compatibility/dp/B07WFQPLMX/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=rx5700xt&qid=1585858491&sr=8-1 There is this xt version but apparently its very bad Do you recommend any other GPUs i should upgrade to? I want to be able to run games at 144+ FPS while still having above 144 while having OBS open, which should mean i should be running the games at 200ish avg FPS to ensure i dont go below from the FPS drops. The games i play are modern warfare, overwatch, rainbow 6 siege and some more. I dont mind turning all settings to low since its what i usually do. My GPU can currently do Overwatch at 200fps avg but i see a lot of fps dips when having obs open with siege and modernwarfare can become hard to play since i struggle to get over 100fps. Thanks in advance.
