  1. I only got 250€ max to spend. How tf am I supposed to found an IPS 144hz panel for that price?
  2. I own a 1080ti, I've been stuck at 60hz for 1 year now, (as I previously had a gtx 660) So now im looking for a good high refresh rate monitor. My budget is around 250€/$ (Pixio brand is not avaiable in my country) No need for 240hz. 144hz is enough, im looking for the best that 250€/$ can buy.
  3. And that's why I NEVER recommend buying a cheap variant of a high-end card. I can understand buying a cheap model with a low end to mid end GPU because it does not impact on anything (other than saving some money). but with high TDP and powerful high end gpus. just go with a good custom card always.
  4. With mediocre 2070S I was refering to cheap aftermarket 2070S models with not enough ventilation due to its low price and offerince little to no improvement over the Reference model. My own 1080ti runs at 1980-2000mhz not even reaching 70º C on full load, mostly staying between 64º to 67º. A reference 2070 Super can reach higher than 70º under load to my understanding
  5. 1080 ti used is better overall, you can get them for 400€, (way lower than a 2070 S) and performing the same or better. A good aftermarket 1080 ti can run cooler than a 2070S Reference or a mediocre aftermarket 2070S. Obviously you are losing RTX capabilities when you buy a 1080 ti, If you don't care about that. Go for the cheap, used 1080ti
  6. I mean 2100mhz is pretty damn slow for ryzen and even for intel. That could be the problem
  7. Im going to use the 3700x and probably OC'it. But I need the board to be as futureproof as possible. If I ever need to upgrade to a Ryzen 4000 12 core or so. That's why I chose x570.
  8. I've been hearing nothing but bad things about MSI's boards and how their mobos are overvoltaging ryzen etc.. (which I'm not sure If its a single case or more spread out) Do you recommend the MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus (190€) or do you suggest another option within the 200€/$ Range.
  9. 3800x is going to be the 1800x of this generation, don't buy it. Go for the 3700x. I'm pretty sure the 4-5% perf difference (if any) is by no means justified by those 70$.
  10. Does it have good airflow at stock ?
  11. Building a new pc this week, I already got all of the parts excluding CPU (which is going to be the 3700x) and mobo. Im keeping my old PC's GPU, a 1080ti, quite a toasty one. 85ºC on full load. Looking for a sub (or around) 100€/$ case with enough airflow to keep all the parts cool. (Pre-installed fans prefered) Also with enough space to fit the be quiet! Dark rock 4. Which is 159.4 cm tall.
  12. My guess is it will require at least a 1070/2060 to run smoothly at 1080 High/Max Settings
  13. If you are not willing to change your mobo. That could be a very decent upgrade. But keep in mind that in less than a month you could get the 3900x for the same price (excluding mobo) Yeah that seems to be a common problem in a bunch of games. Try checking this out
  14. Hmmm...Does your Mobo have a decent VRM to keep the CPU up ? Even if your mobo Is not a great one, that shouldn't be the problem... Try tweaking something in the game settings like environment detail or CPU stressful settings.
