  1. RTX 2070 or 2080 Well yes, of course. I'd rather have a board that has all I need (say, usb 3.1 front header) rather than having to buy more stuff for it .... but then who knows maybe that would be cheaper ... just ignore the I/O part lol
  2. Hi, Long story short, im helping a friend build a gaming PC and I would like some opinions/suggestions as to what mobo to get. Normally this wouldnt be a problem but while browsing for a motherboard and reading various reviews and user comments, there is a lot of talk about overclocking. Now, neither I nor my friend care for overclocking and we dont want to spend more money because a certain motherboard is geared towards overclocking (i assume some mobos might be priced higher because of certain features it has for overclocking) With the above said, what do you suggest considering we dont care about overclocking and we also dont care about RGB? It has to be an ATX board, good I/O, that sort of thing. Budget for this would be ~200 bucks. The budget is flexible a bit.

    How does 2070 do at 1440p 144hz?

    Well yes but i wont be sticking with 1080p. After I get the gpu i will wait a couple of months and buy a 1440p display. A fellow user on this forum made a good point about the monitor on another thread of mine "You're not buying a monitor to use with a single PC, it's going to be used for years and one day your PC will easily handle 1440p and then 4K..." I know i wont be able to utilize its 144hz refresh rate but its ok, one day i will. As long as i get 60+ in AAA single player titles the its ok. As for multiplayer, i only have 2 games currently that are heavy to run but thats about it, the rest are esports titles or close to those so getting decent fps even with a 2060 will be possible i think. Yeah this became clear after reading what others have posted here and what i've seen around the web. Shitty situation if you ask me.

    Well its obvious that the 2060 is the smart choice, im seriously thinking in getting it instead. I wonder now if its 6 GB VRAM will have a negative impact down the line. I've seen games that reach above 6GB VRAM especially when playing with ultra textures or in games where you can download HD textures packs. I would also like to thank everyone who posted here so far!

    Is 1080p at 27" that bad?

    Thank you all for your replies, really helpful! @191x7 made a good point, ill think about 1440p some more.

    Is 1080p at 27" that bad?

    Right. Im all for 1440p, infact that was the monitor i was going for initially. 1440p 144hz is nice, had a chance to try out one and it felt awesome. Issue is bugget. I can get the monitor no problem, there are plenty of them around at a good price. Problem is the GPU. My choices are between 2060 and 2070 where the 2070 is at the limit of my budget. There is no point in getting 1440p 144hz if my gpu cant handle that. Im speaking of AAA gaming at preferably max settings.

    Is 1080p at 27" that bad?

    Im getting a new gpu and a new monitor soon and due to budget constraints i cannot go for 1440p, instead ill stick to 1080p 144hz. Currently I have some Dell 24-25" 1080p monitor. I kinda want a bigger monitor but after reading around it seems some people advice against getting 1080p at 27" because it can get pixelated and that 25" is the sweet spot for 1080p. I was looking at this monitor because its gsync compatible. The monitor will be used for gaming only. https://www.amazon.co.uk/1080p-Gaming-LED-Lit-Monitor-VG278Q/dp/B074JLD4HZ/?tag=androcentr-21&ascsubtag=UUwpUdUnU61508YYwYg What do you guys think?

    How does 2070 do at 1440p 144hz?

    I see. So a 2060 would run AAA at 1080p 144hz without much trouble? Currently, prices in my country for 2070 and 2060 sits at: 2070 = ~570 Euros/650 USD 2060 = ~480 Euros/550 USD Thats what, roughly 18-20% cheaper. I'll have to think about this, do some research on 2060. I have never considered a 2060 for some reason. I was kinda hoping the Radeon VII would be nice and cheap(er) but we all know how that turned out to be CPU: i7 4790 RAM: 16GB DDR3 (cant recall the frequency, 2000MHz something something) (its ram tho, afaik doesnt really impact gaming performance) PSU: EVGA Supernova B2 (i think its a B2 altho not 100% sure) 750W Pretty old but so far the major bottleneck seems to be the GPU so thats first on the list of getting upgraded. I am going to upgrade the CPU as well but due to budget constraints I cant do it all in one go. First the GPU then a monitor (i may be able to get both in one go), then a mobo and/or CPU and RAM ....
  9. Im planning to upgrade my gaming rig starting with a gpu and monitor. Im currently running a 1080p 60hz panel paired with an R9 290 gpu. Its showing its age. Im starting to have a hard time to run AAA titles on anything higher than medium-high settings. While initially i was planning for a 2080, no matter how I do my finances I just cant reach that price. I can however afford a 2070. I am well aware that this gpu cant get 144hz at that resolution in recent AAA titles on max settings. Is it still worth getting this resolution and frame rate for a 2070 even tho I wont be able to maintain 144 fps at max settings in AAA titles? Is that resolution and refresh rate pointless if i cant reach the required fps considering that the monitor will have gsync? Do you have any other suggestions for me? What should I do, downgrade to lower resolution? Lower the refresh rate maybe (I have experienced 144hz gaming and I loved it)? Stick to 1080p @ 144hz? Get another card? etc

    What smartphone to get

    Well no since its not "new". It costs slightly less than a Oneplus 5T. Oneplus 6 is about 100-150 bucks more.

    What smartphone to get

    Well ive raised my budget a little bit since I too happy with the LG G6 and it seems I may be able to get an S8+ (resealed, not brand new but from the pics ive seen, it looks brand new) for cheap-ish. Any thoughts on the phone? Worth it over a Oneplus 5t (new) or LG V30 (resealed)? I dont know if "resealed" is the right word but its what we call them here. These are phones that have been returned by the customers or phones that have been used for reviews by the store or stuff like that. I do get 24 months of warranty on these so i think its a good deal. They usually cost way less than buying brand new.

    What smartphone to get

    Yeah thats what i gathered from my research into this. I'll keep the G6 as a backup. If i cant find either the cash to get Oneplus 5T or some other phone in place of the G6, i will probably buy that.

    What smartphone to get

    Yikes. Never heard of this bootloop outside of this thread but thats probably because i really didnt pay much attention to LG ... i better go do some research on this. EDIT: From the quick search I did, it would appear the g6 does not have the boot loop issue? Ill do some more reading tho.

    What smartphone to get

    Im looking at the LG G6. Looks ok, kinda sucks its an lcd screen tho but it seems to be great for its price. Atm its at 350 euros which is within my budget. Anyone had this phone before? How does it feel/work?

    What smartphone to get

    A lot of you seem to suggest oneplus 5t, i guess i better check it out then. I havent considered oneplus before, dunno why ... As for being on the cutting edge ... i would like to but I cant afford it. Besides, ive been fine with my iphone 5 for so long and im letting it go now only because i cant update IOS and most apps just dont work on ios 8 or even 9. Other than that, im still quite happy with this phone. Sure its slow and lacks the more modern features but i like the form factor and tbh im fine with what it has Now, lemme go see that oneplus phone and how much its being sold here. EDIT: Well, Oneplus 5t is 500 bucks here ... no thank you. Its way above my budget.
