  1. max is the same price as the regular.. might as well get the max
  2. -750w is completely unnecessary, 550 is enough. -there are cheaper cases but h510 isn't exactly expensive -if you really want cheap, 5700xt is a better option than 2070 super, it is worse in some games by a little but is much cheaper. -stock cpu cooler is more than enough PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor £109.98 @ Aria PC Motherboard MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard £106.99 @ Amazon UK Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory £64.97 @ Laptops Direct Storage Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive £70.97 @ Laptops Direct Video Card PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB Red Dragon Video Card £359.99 @ Amazon UK Case NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower Case £74.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk Power Supply Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply £74.08 @ Amazon UK Monitor AOC G2460PF 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor £147.99 @ Box Limited Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £1009.96 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-12-09 02:01 GMT+0000
  3. Thank you! Weird though, I've done several builds, and the only two that had major-ish issues were both low end PCs. First was a i5-3570k and Z77 which did not give any display output/mobo light/fan spinning when pressing the power button, replaced the Z77 with a H61(sadly, only available motherboard) and everything worked fine. Spent so long testing the PSU/GPU/CPU/RAM. This build is a newer one as it has a B450 PRO4 and 3400G, but now I've had memory slot/memory issues and windows installation issues(probably unrelated. You got any idea on whether I'm just super unlucky or is there a correlation between cheaper parts and higher chance of failure?
  4. Didn't DDU but managed to boot normally after booting into safe mode, updated GPU drivers through Geforce Experience and all was well. Thanks
  5. Yep, safe mode with networking works, although I can’t connect to the internet because I don’t have ethernet access.
  6. Title says it all, last time I used this PC was about 11 months ago and it worked fine. Now, After posting and displaying the Win10 logo, it just blacks out. Any ideas? If it helps the monitor is using a female HDMI to female DP adapter(don’t know which model, can’t get behind the table to check) It boots from a 1TB WD Blue Hard Drive, and there’s pretty much almost zero chance of me being able to buy a replacement drive and reinstall Windows An idea I have is to disconnect the internet(maybe Windows 10 update/driver issues?)
  7. So after installing windows with new USB, there were new BSOD errors, pointing to a memory issue. I managed to switch from slots A2 B2 to A1 B1 and everything worked out.
  8. Yup, i told him that the antiviruses he used were pretty much useless(think he used avg and mcafee) and told him to try malwarebytes. I'm using a completely different USB and using my own personal computer to install the windows media creation tool now, so hopefully that works. Thanks
  9. Have a feeling that it's because of the screwed laptop, I opened chrome and got popups(like those windows ones in the bottom right) every 2-10 seconds about ads and 'You have _____ viruses!!!!!'. Should be fine if I just delete the windows.old folders after installation right?
  10. So I just built a PC(specs below) and tried to install Win 10. I forgot to bring my regular windows installation thumbdrive, so we bought a brand new thumbdrive and used an old laptop to get the windows 10 installer onto it. Thing is, the old laptop had a shit ton of viruses(was used by a family of non-tech savvy people). Managed to install after a few tries, but when installing Win 10 on the PC, I came across multiple errors. First had some error saying something along the lines of 'can't read memory' while installing windows(after choosing which drive to install it onto) Then tried to reinstall, bluescreened at the same spot Tried again, this time it said that I had corrupted windows installation files I should be fine with using my regular win10 thumbdrive right? Also, The drive is now like 30GB full of failed windows installation attempts, can I just click delete on the page where I select the drive to install windows onto, to clear those files?

  11. Don't think they have a premade kit for the Straight Power 11(although, they do have a kit for the dark power 11, that's named the SP series? weird but idk) Customising your own cables from their configurator gives you the option for the Straight Power 11 as well as the Pro kit, and you get to customise the colours. Downside is that it's a little expensive. Like, probably $100-$200 https://store.cablemod.com/configurator/ If you want to go ahead with this, maybe you can tell us your specs, so we can help with choosing the right cables
  12. 1) Yes 2) Yes IIRC the AMD variants were made for Ryzen 1st gen, which were rather picky with memory. 2nd and 3rd gen are completely fine with non 'AMD variant' memory
  13. I wouldn't trust many PC Shops with building a PC, at least you'll know NZXT has very very good build quality, and warranty Considering you are able to spend $4k, NZXT BLD is a good shout. https://www.letsbld.com/bld/step5?price=2500&draft=2925714160 This build has 8 core Intel i9-9900k. Not the best value, but somehow cheaper on NZXT's website than equivalent Ryzen CPUs. Cooled with 280mm AIO RTX 2080 Ti 1TB Samsung NVME SSD 4x8GB RAM 3200MHz Comes out to $3,148.88 Here's a monitor you can use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0798Q8KG4?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 1440p ultrawide with 144Hz refresh rate, IPS panel and 1ms latency. This monitor is $894.90 Total is around $4k, but you can switch the 2080 Ti for a 2080 Super which has about 90% of the performance, and is $500 less on the website(same with MSRP)
  14. If you're thinking of buying a new one, it could possibly be more expensive than brand new RTX 2070 Supers/RTX 2080s because they're not in production anymore. Used 1080 Ti's are insane value though
