    Asus ZenFone 5 or Samsung galaxy s8 Plus

    Is the s8 plus objectively better than The asus? I noticed that our of the box and after installing my usual apps, the Asus isn't too snappy anymore...
  2. Hi all Really simple question here. Bought an Asus ZenFone 5, then was given a Samsung galaxy s8 plus In very good condition. Which one would you keep? Cheers

    Daddy needs help with budget build

    Why Gold instead of bronze? It's a budget build remember. The RX570 is a great idea though, not a big loss to the 1060 6GB and its loads cheaper. Thanks!
  4. Hello all, Haven't visited the forum in a while, so I'll go straight to the point. I own an old but trusty Dell Optiplex 9020 mini tower, with the specs: I5 4570 8GB DDR3 RAM 300W OEM Power supply (with 8 pin connector to Motherboard instead of usual 24 pin) Nvidia GTX 750ti 240 GB SSD + 600 GB HDD 2 x 24'' Dell monitors (60Hz) - These will not change as my peripherals are all supplied by my employer. I usually play World of Warcraft as main game, but also a lot of Rocket League, Witcher 3, Fallout 4, F1 2016. I had noticed my rig could not handle witcher 3 very well but on medium to low settings it was playable. However, recently after buying F1 2018, I noticed I could not play smoothly at all at 1080p. I had to lower to 900p to have a decent frame rate. I believe I will continue gaming forever but always 1-2 hours per day maximum, so I am not planning for a top spec machine. I also have family investments coming so need to spend as little as possible, but also keep in mind it should last me a decent amount of time. So, the question now is Buy a new tower, for around 640 USD Case - Corsair Carbide 200R - 63 USD Power Supply - EVGA 600 BR 600W Bronze CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 1500X w/ cooler MoBo - ASUS B450 RAM - 8GB DDR4 Graphics card - Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB Note: I already own the SSD + HDD I will need. Upgrade my existing rig with the following parts for a total of 375 USD: COOLER MASTER MWE 550W 80+ BRONZE (65 USD) Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB (300 USD) 24 pin to 8 pin adapter for the Power supply Motherboard connector. (10 USD) Upgrade my existing rig with minimal specs for 255 USD: COOLER MASTER MWE 550W 80+ BRONZE (65 USD) Nvidia GTX 1050 ti (180 USD) (requires only 75W from the PCI board) 24 pin to 8 pin adapter for the Power supply Motherboard connector. (10 USD) If any of the above lasts me at least 2 years I am absolutely fine. If less then I might be more inclined for a new build. Thoughts? Regards
  5. Hi all, First post here, so bear with me. I use my computer or laptop solely for gaming. I have a laptop with a I5-7300 HQ, 12GB of DDR4 Ram 2133Mhz, and a GTX-1050 ti. When I bought it it made sense to have a laptop, however these days it just sits on my desk all the time, so I'm thinking to get a desktop instead. However, in early 2018 I will be travelling for 2 months and that is the only occasion where the laptop will come in handy. - Why not keep the laptop until then, and then exchange for the desktop? Stop judging me! - So what do I want? I want to build a desktop made of good value for money parts (or even used), which is good enough for now (better than the laptop) and that I can upgrade easily next year, without having to change motherboard to say the very least. So I am here to ask you all what parts do you recommend me getting. Case - CPU - RAM - Power Supply - Graphics Card - Other - I don't need peripherals like mouse keyboard or monitor, as I already have them. 1. Budget & Location 400 GBP (roughly 500 USD ish). United Kingdom. 2. Aim Gaming at 1080p at 60+ FPS. 3. Monitors 2 monitors 4. Peripherals No. I use Windows 10 and I would probably need a license. 5. Why are you upgrading? See above.
