  1. Hi all, x58 has always been my favourite platform of all time, and I am finally making the decision to transition from p55 to x58! I have been looking around for nice high end mobos and I have finally found an Asus Sabertooth x58 motherboard for $125 (AUD)! Was just wondering, is this a good price and or what is the recommended price for x58 stuff these days? Thanks EDIT: A pic of the board is below for reference
  2. They are stealing your money, pushing their members away from their platform therefore leaving them with a bad reputation. And how does it cost money to keep an account up and running, that is absurd! For the most part, how do they know that you haven't logged into your account for a while, sounds like they are sniffing around with your data. Get your shit together G2A!!!!

    MSI armour RX 570 4GB overclocking

    Dont worry, I have tried 1470MHz core 2200MHz mem, power limit is all the way, +38MHz on vcore and it ran superposition benchmark fine, but every run after that (at the same settings), it kept on crashing, and now still does! I guess its just a matter of luck......... I might stress it for 24 hours stock and then oc and see if its fine with AIDA 64 then prime 95 maybe....

    Well, no matter what settings I try, it just keeps on crashing. Now, thats why I am asking for a baseline for what is recommended.
  6. Hi all, I have an rx 570 4gb and I was wanting to know some solid over clocks for it. I want to know what, core voltage, Power limit, Temp limit, Core clock, Memory clock and fan speed is recommended for my card. Many thanks, Nick

    SSDs as low as 0.08$ per gb in 2019?

    I got it from a facebook bss group, mind you, postage was included in the price. And....... I paid $38 for my wd green 120gb ssd from ebay (AUD), so it definitely pays to look around on the used market.

    Rebuild from scratch or upgrade my current build?

    Rebuilding your whole will cost more than upgrading the graphics card. There is no need to do a fresh install of windows because that will just make your life so much harder along with formatting the drives. Your better off looking around on ebay, craigslist, local fb groups for a gtx 1080 or 1080ti. They are still great cards and will provide you the power you need to play games at 4k. And plus, you could use the money from selling the two 970s to put towards a 1080 or 1080ti. The 4790k is plenty for gaming and is already beginning to bottleneck the 1080/1080ti a little, the rtx series would be a worse choice to put together for that platform as it will create a greater bottleneck than the 10 series would.
  12. AMD will always bring the best price to performance, and that's all that matters imo!
  13. What's a good PC to put a GTX 770 into? I was thinking of building a PC to flip, but I'm not sure what PC to build for it. Any suggestions are welcome. Cheers,

    New Gaming PC from "old" parts?

    Maybe consider an i7-3770 on a cheap H61 motherboard with 8gb ddr3 1600MHz ram and a gtx 1060 6gb or gtx 980 as a gpu. PSU would only need to be a 550W and a nice case will finish off the build nicely. 120/240gb ssd and a 1tb hdd for storage, and you are representing the budget used price to performance.
