  1. gtx ampere 2080 with fx 8320?

    I never mentioned anything about getting a low-end CPU. All I am saying is, 1. you will definitely be getting a performance increase with either a current gen ryzen sky or ryzen 2
  2. Decent molex cable?

    Just buy a ketchup and mustard molex cable, then buy a fully length cable sleeve and then cut a quarter of it off and sue it for the molex connector. Or buy a molex connector pre-sleeved
  3. gtx ampere 2080 with fx 8320?

    You will be definitely getting a performance improvement with going with a ryzen 2 CPU
  4. gtx ampere 2080 with fx 8320?

    EDIT: A current gen ryzen Cpu or a ryzen 2 CPU would be recommended Like everyone here is suggesting, I'd suggest a ryzen 5 2600
  5. gtx ampere 2080 with fx 8320?

    As @bob51zhang mentioned before, there would be quite a bottle neck if you were to pair ampere with an FX chip. It simply wouldn't be worth it considering you would yield better performance with an upgraded CPU. For $800, you could build a half decent gaming system of which would bring certain performance improvements over your current system. I would wait for ryzen 2 and see what that has to offer in terms of performance if you were to build a PC. ampere is actually just rumours going around at the moment, so we are unsure if its actually legitement DONT get Kaby lake, like I mentioned before, I would wait and see what ryzen 2 has to offer in terms of performance or you could go with a coffee lake SKU
  6. used pc worth it or not

    If you can talk the guy down to 250 CAD, then it would be a good deal. I mean, if you only gaming, then this machine will be decent for the mean time.

    Would this be a good PCPP list for a budget gaming PC? I live in Australia, so I think its pretty good for $600

    I'm actually thinking about building this myself! If you could make any changes, what would you change in this build? Any suggestions/changes are appreciated!

      https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/sxDzK8/intel-core-i7-8700k-37ghz-6-core-processor-bx80684i78700k Well, the 8700k is $509 here in Australia, so yeah, I get your point that we are similar in terms of pricing. But would you say my PCPP build is good? Anything else you would change?

    3. themctipers


      no because budgeting is not my specialty, nor is low end gaming.

    4. tjcater


      Going off of the US pricing, its definitely good on a budget (No clue on the PSU, @JDE might know better). I can't say how good it is for Australia as I don't know your market well.

  8. Since when were you a moderator on the forums? congratulations! by the way!


    EDIT: I actually never knew you were a moderator in the first place

  9. Does Ram speed matter here?

    For intel CPUs, RAM speed doesn't really matter that much because of the way the ring bus design works with intel CPUs works. Of course, if you got 3200MHz RAM you would see minor performance improvements over 2133MHz memory, so in my opinion, I see no need to upgrade your RAM. Its like anything, if you are experiencing performance deductions in gaming and everyday use, then an upgrade would be acquired by your needs. EDIT: Ask yourself, am I not happy with the current performance I'm getting at the moment
  10. Weird problems with SSD Boot priority

    Try reinstalling windows. Windows could be corrupted for all we know.
  11. Does Ram speed matter here?

    Have you even tried overclocking your RAM and enabling the XMP orofile to do so. *Edit: You can overclock your RAM if you want to, ita easy
  12. SOURCE: https://videocardz.com/75080/leaked-roadmaps-confirm-coffee-lake-e-h-s-cascade-lake-sp-to-remain-focus-in-2018 These are just some leaked roadmaps that indicate intel CPU types on a clear diagram. It seems like some new features will be integrated as new chips start rolling out in the coming year of which would benefit gaming performance and productivity workloads.
  13. I have to admit though, some of LMGs videos are informative, to the extend where yes, extensive research was done.
  14. For more in depth videos, check out tech quickie, thats the main channel with educational videos of which contain extensive research. Of course they have to do research before making a video, and as @RKRiley mentioned, I feel like myself that in the past couple of months, I don't think they have gone too in depth in terms of extensive research.
  15. Source: https://www.theverge.com/2018/2/12/17006074/youtube-ceo-logan-paul-susan-wojcicki How damn long has this controversy been going for about logan pual being banned from the platform? Well, I'd have to think that some punishment should have already been implied to logan pual, not taking it to the extent where it takes a really long time to make a decision about a punishement for logan pual. To be truely honest, I think a suspension from the platform in a given time frame would have been bettter as a punishment for logan pual, I guess it falls into the category of, "oh....I did something wrong (I made a mistake), I'll accept the suspension and I promise I wont do it again", that wouldve been a better scenario to put it. I mean, not all, but some YouTubers are really honest with their viewers and when they have done something wrong, they generally make an apologie to their viewers explaining what they had done and say sorry, but this has been going to long now to extend where I guess it isnt worth it going to my original point of making a simple punishment.
