  1. If you don't set XMP in BIOS it will run at 2133, not 2666.
  2. Not sure if there is something like this that already exists, but if they can detect bad comments that demonetise a video, cannot they just provide a content creator with an auto-moderation tool that deletes said comments?
  3. While I have never experienced this, I think that you could look into those "pc gaming gloves" that some people wear. I usually find them funny, but in your case they actually might serve a purpose.

    Budget video rendering PC

    I think it's good. I would never get an MSI ARMOR as a GPU since the ARMOR has terrible cooling (and looks ugly af). Other than that it's good.

    Streaming on console/pc?

    You can use products like the ones produced by Elgato to capture your PS4 gameplay and stream it from your PC: https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/game-capture-hd60-s https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/game-capture-hd60-pro https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/game-capture-4k60pro
  6. Turn vsync off in-game and/or NVIDIA control panel.

    RAM Question

    It should be since they are 3000MHz too.

    From GTX1080 to ..... ?

    Whichever is cheaper between 1080Ti and 2080. At the same price go for 2080.

    Do limited edition cards have better chips?

    Some are binned, like the KINGPIN cards. Not sure about those models specifically. If you search them you will find out.

    Looking to make a new computer

    I would build something like this (prices are in CAD): PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor $217.75 @ Amazon Canada Motherboard Gigabyte - B450 I AORUS PRO WIFI Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard $156.50 @ Vuugo Memory Team - T-Force Vulcan 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $149.99 @ Newegg Canada Storage Kingston - A1000 240 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive $49.99 @ Canada Computers Storage Hitachi - Travelstar 1 TB 2.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $73.99 @ Newegg Canada Video Card EVGA - GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB Black Video Card $659.88 @ Canada Computers Case Fractal Design - Node 202 HTPC Case $114.99 @ Amazon Canada Power Supply Corsair - SF 450 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply $109.99 @ Amazon Canada Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $1553.08 Mail-in rebates -$20.00 Total $1533.08 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-02-15 21:28 EST-0500 It is a small ITX case (same one that I use), but it can sit sideways no problem and doesn't occupy much space. Maybe consider buying 2x 120mm case fans to put beneath the GPU. This PC would last you more than 2-3 years.

    i7-8086K vs i7-9700K vs i9-9900K

    Keep in mind that languages like Python run on a single thread (unless you use libraries like thread pooling).

    i7-8086K vs i7-9700K vs i9-9900K

    Ryzen hardly has any memory issues anymore. That was a 2017 problem.

    Spending Budget Wisely

    It depends too much on deals, form factor (smaller stuff costs more), utilisation (e.g. games (gpu) vs rendering (cpu)), etc. You cannot break it down to percentages imo.

    Which 2080 Ti?

    Yeah I can understand since that is quite subjective. I mainly like the peace of mind of knowing that EVGA has good warranty and customer support. But I can see why you might want a good looking card too, you need to value the importance of it yourself

    Which 2080 Ti?

    It's $300 cheaper...
