  1. They aren't available where I live but the below mentioned are available. 1. Gamdias TALOS E1 2. Antec P5 Ultimate Silent 3. Bitfenix Prodigy Window
  2. Hi, There's mini build plan going on but couldn't find a good review that explains about this, in depth. Mobo: Asus ROG STRIX B360-I GAMING 8th Gen mini-ITX CPU: i7 8700 (Non K) Cooler: Cryorig H7 Case: Antec DP301M The whole concept of this build is a compact footprint but with good airflow, because this might be used in a non-air-conditioned space from time to time. Also, the case dealer made me an offer, which I can't deny. A good review of this case will be much appreciated.
  3. I've seen Ryzen (1700x and 2700x) performance with Adobe apps, not too pleasing in my humble opinion. I'm open to learning more about it.
  4. Thank you so much for the replies, everyone.
  5. Hi, I'm currently using a system that houses a i5 6500 with 32 GB RAM. I play some AAA games, but not that often. I do some heavy graphical work which require me to have multiple Adobe applications open simultaneously as well as some 3D modeling and motion graphics. So far I've had no issues, but often see some super-short coffee breaks from my PC (they occur randomly when I'm using Photoshop or After Effects). They're not that big of a deal, but simply annoying because my OS drive is an NVMe SSD and I don't expect these short stares. I'm planning to upgrade my processor and am given a choice. 1. i7 6700 2. i7 8700 + Asus TUF H370 (because I'm on a 6th gen board) My question is do cores matter or do they make a significant impact? Some people said I'm better off with the 6700 because it's cheaper and does the work. They also said, I didn't need more cores for the type of work I do. Another group of people suggested I upgraded to the 8700 as more applications and games are heading towards utilization of multiple cores in order to deliver better results. Need some experts' advice and please do mention the reason behind your suggestion.
  6. Seriously guys? Not a single reply?
  7. Hi, I'd like to thank all the contributors in advance for any helpful suggestions to fixing my problem. The issue began after I tried merging two drives (C and D) using a third-party app (MiniTool Partition Wizard Free) which lets you merge without losing any data. Once the merging process was done, the PC restarted and was stuck at the ASUS logo screen. Keyboard inputs do nothing at all, which means it won't let me enter into BIOS either. The funny thing is, once I removed the HDD connection, everything was normal and I could enter into BIOS. So I assumed the HDD was broken or something, I tried setting it up on another machine and surprisingly, it boots up and I can see the merge was successful. I tried a different HDD on this machine, and it seems to boot normally... The only problem this machine has, is with this particular HDD. I've tried Googling, but couldn't find any solution to this problem (tried BIOS reset and the battery thing), so reaching out to you guys here. OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 HDD: WD Blue (SATA)
  8. Thank you all for the great suggestions. I can see more replies are in favor of a graphic card. Fortunately, there is a small gaming community in my area who often buy and sell PC gaming components, so I'm hoping to get a used Nvidia GTX 1050 (would like to avoid other cards since Adobe apps use Nvidia's CUDA cores), it'll cost me around $95 to $110, GTX 980 costs around $490. Still open to more suggestions. My budget is not much at the moment, somewhere between $200 to $300. Just for the record, I can run all the apps I've mentioned in my original post, only thing is, they perform at a slower speed but I can get work done. So in my humble opinion, I think this can be tackled by upgrading the RAM to 16 GB and adding a SSD. Correct me if I'm wrong please.
  9. Hi, I'm Mustafa, and I possess a very little knowledge about PC components and builds. However, I've managed to put together a light gaming rig (mostly 2D games or side scrollers) on a very tight budget recently, which I would also like to use for work (graphic design) in the near future. I've been using this rig for about a week now, and can't figure out what to upgrade as a quick solution to bring it to the level where I won't face any kind of lag, jitter and freeze up when I work on it. Apps that I'll be mostly using are Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro and Maxon Cinema 4D. Below is the config. Motherboard: Gigabyte G1 Sniper B7 (1151 Socket) Processor: Intel i5 6400 2.7Ghz (Quad-Core) RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4 GB DDR4 (2133 Mhz) - Upgrading to 16 GB soon. GPU: Built-In (Intel HD Graphics 530) Storage: Seagate 320 GB 7200RPM HDD - Will add Adata 240 GB SSD soon. OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit As can be seen, I've already thought of some changes, but my knowledge is very limited and people have been suggesting me to get a graphic card like Nvidia GTX 1060 or equivalent (which I can't afford at the moment). Your thoughts and suggestions will be appreciated.
