  1. I am taking back a 2nd S2716DG due to dead/stuck pixels. I have decided to go with a different brand. My budget is $400. I don't care if it has G-sync, Fast Sync works just fine for me. Here is my Tower specs: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor - OCd 3.85Ghz (Purchased For $193.44) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler (Purchased For $24.89) Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-AX370-Gaming K7 ATX AM4 Motherboard (Purchased For $169.99) Memory: G.Skill - Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory - OCd to 3333Mhz (Purchased For $219.00) Storage: ADATA - Ultimate SU800 128GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (Purchased For $54.99) Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (Purchased For $43.78) Video Card: Asus - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX Video Card - OCd to 2100Mhz (Purchased For $539.99) Case: NZXT - S340 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case (Purchased For $69.99) Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply (Purchased For $88.98) Operating System: Microsoft - Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit (Purchased For $88.89) Case Fan: be quiet! - Pure Wings 2 140 61.2 CFM 140mm Fan (Purchased For $11.69) Case Fan: be quiet! - Pure Wings 2 140 61.2 CFM 140mm Fan (Purchased For $11.69) Monitor: Dell - S2716DG 27.0" 2560x1440 144Hz Monitor (Purchased For $399.99) Total: $1917.31 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-12-20 12:50 EST-0500 I was thinking about getting https://www.amazon.com/Nixeus-27-Inch-FreeSync-Certified-Range/dp/B071G6PGP7. Any other recommendations?
  2. So with a GTX 1080 @ 1440p, I should stick with Ryzen + 3000 ram kit over say a i5-8600k + 2400 ram kit? I know intel will still win every time but I'm just wondering whats the better value. I will be overclocking btw.
  3. Yea I know Ryzen takes advantage of higher ram clock speeds over intel but I'm trying to determine if its more lucrative to buy a R5 1600 paired with expensive ram or if I should just buy an expensive coffee lake cpu that just has more raw power. For example: Ryzen 5 1600 + 3200 CL 14 ram kit vs i5 8600k + 2400 ram kit
  4. so lets say gaming @ 1440p for games like Witcher 3, Assassins Creed: Origins, Destiny 2, GTA5, WoW, ESO, ARK, PUBG Does higher clock speed on ram increase the single thread performance of the CPU or the IPC or is some other measure of performance?
  5. So, I was wondering how much of a performance boost in gaming do you get when you pair expensive ram with the ryzen chips more specifically the R 5 1600. Is it worth spending the extra money on $200 ram kits vs like $100 - $150 ddr4 2400 ram kits? Or is it better to just get an intel chip and skimp out on the ram?
  6. Yea, everything I can send back if I need to though (except the GPU). I was just wondering if there was any room for improvement.
  7. Budget: $1800-$1900 Aim: Gaming (MMOs, FPS, RTS, RPG) and general use (Youtube, music, web browsing) Monitors: I have two 23" 1080p 60hz monitors from my old build. I want one new one that enhances my gaming experience. Peripherals: Dont need. Why am I upgrading: My previous gaming build was from 2011 with the i5 2500k and a GTX 780, I thought it was time. I originally wanted to go to a gaming laptop but soon realized that laptop gaming just isn't there yet even with the new pascal gpus. Temps just get too hot. Here is a build I put together to see if it can be improved.
