    @CPotter If I come from Abbotsford, can I get a tour?
  3. Upgrading CPU

    Rendering Software is Wondershare Filmora. The budget depends on how much I could sell my Current CPU for. So maybe around $400 - $500 CAD I am located in Vancouver.
  4. Upgrading CPU

    I have a couple questions. I want a faster and better CPU. I have had some bad FPS with CPU Heavy games. Also, I would like to render videos and animations faster. I was thinking up upgrading to a good Coffee Lake processor. I was thinking of getting an i7 8700 (Costs less an I don't think I want to overclock.) My current CPU is an i5 6500. So here are my questions. How much could I sell my i5 6500 for? and can I upgrade from Sky Lake to Coffee Lake right now without buying any new parts other than the CPU. Current motherboard is MSI B150 Gaming M3. Thanks in advance!
  5. Where in hell are those CPU´s available?

    All I found was this one on Newegg https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113449&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwordsCA-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwordsCA-PC-_-pla-_-Processors+-+Desktops-_-N82E16819113449&gclid=Cj0KCQiA3dTQBRDnARIsAGKSflkMfPFEF9d7dslHpNJLJa8tHT21k-39bOxFVtZ267rTYsYLponL-SUaAs1oEALw_wcB Try looking on Newegg, they might have more.
  6. Updated build, suggestions?

    I got them mixed up
  7. Updated build, suggestions?

    Heres the difference between m.2 and 2.5" M.2: 2.5" :
  8. Updated build, suggestions?

    I would recommend swapping the CPU for a locked one. Unless you have your heart set on overclocking, it seems like your new to pc building, so I would recommend getting the Ryzen 5 1600. Youll saves a lot of money. I would also change the m.2 into a 2.5" Samsung SSD, here's a good one. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3kL7YJ/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mz75e250bam I don't know if you know this but you don't have a case.
  9. Updated build, suggestions?

    What are you planning to use the pc for? Productivity, gaming, etc. Whats your budget in your preferred currency? $500 CAD, $300 USD.
  10. Samsung S8 or the Oneplus 5t

    Go with the S8, the display is amazing and the camera is gorgeous
  11. 1080 Ti VS Volta

    Totally 1080 ti, should be enough for what you're doing unless your hardcore bitcoin mining.
  12. It Locks the fps to 60 so that you don't have screen tearing.
  13. 32gb enough?

    Then your storage problems with programs will be solved. If you really want to get good power, I would sacrifice storage on your hard drive for ssd storage
  14. 32gb enough?

    It is enough. I would recommend getting a bigger 120 or 240 GB SSD so you can run other programs faster. If you really on a tight budget get a Hard Drive for extra programs but keep the SSD.
  15. SLI questions!

    No, if your planning to use 2 graphics cards in SLI then yes. But if your running a single GPU than no. The answer is no.
