    New build going Intel 2019

    As told by PC part picker 6700k $658 7700k $499 9400f $279 on PCCG Or even Ryzen 2600 $259 on PCCG
  2. Right, I want to spend 1000 AUD can flex probably an extra 100 if desperate. GPU NOT INCLUDED, already have a 1080. HARD DRIVES NOT INCLUDED, already have a 3tb Seagate. Current PC: i7 3770 on an ASUS P8Z77-V Pro, with 8gb of 1333MHz DDR3. GPU GTX 1080 all powered by an overkill Zalman 1000W. I 88% of the time game on this PC. Recently bought BFV and my hardware (excluding the 1080) is showing age. I have 144Hz monitor so FPS is important to be above at least 80 in BFV at high. I want everything from the same place (shipping costs add up) I also have a wishlist up on PCCG for an idea. https://www.pccasegear.com/wish_lists/913770/NEW PC intel There is a i5 9400f, yes, on a Z390. BUT that's for the ability to go for a better 9 series chip in future when the price drops in a few years.
  3. So I looked on the usual website that shows up when typing into Google "this pc part" vs "this other pc part" and clicked the website link. Obviously, I searched 2400G vs 2600 and found apparently that their single core speeds are the same. So does that mean their gaming performance would be the same? No, I have not watched any YouTube videos comparing the two.
  4. So here's what I plan to be cooling when I get a new rig. R5 2600 with stock cooler, and an ASUS Strix 1080 (it's a looonnnggg card so take that into account) I have no idea what case to buy that will have sufficient cooling within my budget, I was to spend a maximum of 100 Australian dollars. I was looking at the Phanteks p300, but I saw on a forum post that it doesn't have the cooling capacity for higher end hardware. Not that the 2600 has a huge TDP, but I could upgrade to a 3rd gen Ryzen with a higher TDP who knows. A lot of cases are choked intake fans A lot of the cheaper mesh front cases are ugly. I'm stuck...and the Meshify C is too expensive. I want that airflow.

    GTX 1080 Strix idle temps

    I recently bought a GTX 1080 Strix from a friend who took good care of it it's never been overclocked. But my question is, with the 0% fan mode, is it safe for the long run to idle at 44-45 degrees C. If I make the fan curve to keep the fan on until like 30 degrees, the GPU fan (as monitored by GPU Tweak II) is constantly turning on and off every few seconds, even if I make the fan stay on 20% until it reaches zero degrees C As a side note. I can't just "Look at the GPU fans myself" as the PC is sitting under the desk in a cubby (with good breathing room btw), but the side window is covered so I can't see inside the case.

    Eclipse P300 and mATX?

    That's actually funny because I was planning on mATX BECAUSE of it being cheaper than ATX. (All information I'm saying is from PCCG Australia) The MSI B450M Mortar is $149 (AUD), where the cheapest ATX B450 board is $145, the MSI B450-A Pro and the next one up is $159, the Asus Prime B450 Plus.
  7. Simple question. Will it look stupid or silly to put an mATX motherboard such as MSI B450M Mortar inside this case? Another side question, what is the cooling capability of the P300 like? If anyone has experience with it. Another'nother question. Does the LED strip run by itself or does it require a 5050 12V LED strip connector?
  8. So long story short I bought a 1080 Strix, and are using one of the 2 fan headers on the card itself because my motherboard doesn't have enough for the 5 chassis fans. I have to use GPU Tweak II to be able to control the speed of that 1 fan connected to the GPU, but the software looks tacky and I am more familiar with MSI Afterburner. Will it confuse the card, or software, if I use both at the same time? Will fan profiles be different and mess up? (I am not overclocking it, just adjusting fan curves)

    Plan Buld $1500 AUD budget

    For the MoBo, pretty much like you said, it's a good board, I want it to last a long time M.2 SSD just for the ease of less cable management but I'll have a look into the exact one you recommended. (There is also no HDD because I have my own 3TB one) I've changed the 8gb kit to a 16 one. I'm making sure to use 3000MHz because Ryzen likes dem Hertz The PSU is kind of a future proof thing. I don't want to cheap out on a PSU and the wattage is just for the fact of not worrying about what I can or can't put inside it and overclock headroom on GPU's or if I feel confident enough to OC the CPU

    @LukeSavenije @TH3R34P3R Right, You guys know your stuff. how would this be? https://www.pccasegear.com/wish_lists/849025

    Plan Buld $1500 AUD budget

    Is it cheaper to go ATX?.

    Plan Buld $1500 AUD budget

    I have mocked up a wishlist on PCCG, It reaches $50 over $1000 and only has an i5 8500 and 8gb of 2666MHz RAM. Keep in mind I need a PSU, Case, SSD, Motherboard. An 8700K on its own is $615.
  13. First thing's first. I live in Australia so all pricing is in AUD This build will be mostly for GAMING, more specifically 144Hz, though there might be some video editing and photoshop on the side. But very rarely. I will probably watch YouTube whilst playing games if that accounts for anything like RAM or CPU. I would prefer to buy everything from PCCG (PC Case Gear, Australia) So put in perspective both CPU and RAM is expensive. i7 8700 $529 and an 8gb kit of hyperX Fury 2666MHz is $109. I recently just upgraded our GPU to an Asus Strix GTX 1080 for $500, second hand from a friend (I previously had a 1060 6GB that cost me $450 new during the end of the great 2018 cryptocurrency boom). The price of that card is included in the build so I have $1000 left to spend. I am currently running with 2 monitors one at 144hz the other at 60hz both are 1080p. 2 monitors is enough for me. I am most confused about what CPU to buy. AMD or Intel. If Intel is recommended I have absolutely no idea on what motherboard to get. I WILL NOT BE OVERCLOCKING THE CPU! The preference here is an mATX motherboard with 4 RAM slots, I want to start with one 8GB kit and then upgrade later once I've gained enough money back. Our current build is from 2012. i7 3700, 8GB corsair vengeance 1333MHz DDR3, (The just bought GTX 1080), 128Gb SSD and 3 HDD. The SSD is almost full. I am upgrading from the dated hardware bottlenecking newer and newer GPU's. For example, running BF1 at high preset at 1080p with the GTX 1080 only yields about 75fps if that sometimes...

    Budget PC, ITX or mATX?

    So everyone seems to be saying go with mATX, the biggest pointers were RAM upgradeability, and instead of straight up buying 16 gigs (Which is expensive in Aus) I'll get the 2x4 kit to start and later get the exact same kit again across 4 DIMM slots on the mATX board. Were my selected parts good for the rest of the build?
  15. I live in Australia so these prices will be in AUD. I have $1000 budget give or take a few dollars. I DO NOT NEED A VIDEO CARD OR HDD, I will be reusing an MSI 1060 6GB 6GT OCV1. (dumb name) and a Seagate 3TB drive. This PC will primarily be used for gaming, I don't know what the future will tell but 90% of my PC time is spent gaming. The other 10% is mostly web browsing and YouTube. Rarely have I edited and uploaded YT vids. I want air cooling not closed or custom loops. For the mATX build, I have lined up a Ryzen 5 2600, MSI B450M Mortar, Team T-Force 3000MHz DDR4 RAM 2x4 (8GB), Samsung 860 EVO M.2 500GB, powered by a Be Quiet! Straight Power 11 550W 80+ Gold. Potentially adding a fan hub as the motherboard only has so few headers. All packed inside a Fractal Design Meshify C Mini The ITX is pretty much identical except for. The motherboard will be an MSI B450I Gaming Plus AC, and the case Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Mini ITX TG. Should I go ITX for its size and it has all the main things I'll need, or mATX for the ability to upgrade easier down the track and potentially install more PCIe cards?
