    Marhier got a reaction from fasauceome in Better alternative to ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2060 Advanced Edition 6 GB GDDR6?   
    That's a decent rig you got there mate, no question.
     
    If you wanted to game at 4k 60fps at highest settings, perhaps the RTX 2060 wasn't the best choice.
    I'm not overly sure how well the 2060 preformes at 4k, but id imagine you'd have to turn down settings or decrease your gaming resolution. 
    The '60 line of an nVidia generation are usually mid range
     
    A 1080Ti is a much better option over the stupidly priced counterpart - 2080Ti.
    I'd have gotten a second hand 1080Ti personally - I've seen some for roughly £450; my dad just bought one and was pristine.

    So last Sunday, I had a power surge, stupidly didn't own any form of UPS / anti-surge adaptors (I do now FYI) and it ruined my PSU, motherboard, CPU, Cooler and my 3TB WD Red NAS drive, which had my whole life on it... Again, stupidly hadn't had that backed up and currently with www.pcimage.co.uk for data recovery; waiting for a quote; probably not going to be cheap
    Monday night, I ordered new parts; luckily, my GPU survived, so I didn't need to replace that - my SSD also survived, but figured I'd go NVMe M.2 this time.
     
    My last build was:
    Asus Maximus V Extreme
    i7 3770k - 4.6GHz
    16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM (2,666MHz)
    Corsair H100i

    Upgraded to:
    Asus Maximus XI Hero
    i9 9900k - 5.2GHz
    16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro (3,200MHz)
    Corsair H100i Pro
    Samsung 970 Evo (250GB)
     
    I've attached pictures of the build and cable management.
    Been testing it loads since building on Wednesday and this thing is a BEAST!

    Most people hate the case though - I love it personally - I love green; that and the HAF X case is still probably one of the best out there imo.

    Hello again.
    Just thought I'd post an update!
     
    So I installed every game I own through Steam, Origin, UPlay, Oculus, Windows Store and non client games.
    It came to a whopping......... 5TB (just under, lol).
    So after that, I decided to install the 151 games my friend shares with me that I don't have in my own library.
    That bumped me up to....... 6TB (just under, lol).
     
    So you were right, I could have installed all of that on one drive, still had half left and put the 2nd 12TB drive in RAID1.
    I'm now sat with roughly 17TB of storage remaining.
    I doubt I'll change it now as I've installed everything; I honestly thought the amount of games I had to install would take me to at least 10TB... Turns out I could install all of that twice and still have space left over, lol!
     
    Note: The downside to installing 475 games on Steam is the magnitude of updates every time I log in, lol! Usually only takes a minute as the majority of updates are tiny, but I feel compelled to clear the download list every time it finishes!
     
    Anyway... Lesson learned.
    At least I have RAID0 petformance, which has been pretty damn good to be honest, haha!
     
    Thanks.
    Regards
    Marhier!

    No idea, lol... I'll find out soon enough and report back!
    I have just under 400 games, they vary in size from 2GB to 75+GB.
    I'm working on the theory that it will probably take between 10-12TB (400 x 25GB | 400 x 30GB respectively as an average) though it'll probably be more like 8-9TB.
    As I mentioned originally, I'd rather have loads of space left over for the future.
     
     
    You're probably right - I should have done it via Windows... If ever it fails and I do have to do it again, maybe I'll choose that option.
    This time round, I've gone for performance.
     
    What can I say, I'm glutton for punishment!
    You're not wrong, it would suck, but I'm willing to have it happen once and learn the hard way.
    I think if I get a drive failure and I have to do it again, I'll probably do what you suggested and have two separate drives and split the games alphbetically.

    Thank you for you advice though, I've learned a lot from this process.
    I will report back!

    Regards
    Marhier!
