    Christmas First Build

    That 5.4k rpm hdd will feel kinda sluggish, heads up. It wont really hinder game performance too much but as someone who used to use one it'lll take a hot sec to do anything. I'd say drop the extra 8Gb of ram too, 16gb of ram with those specs makes no sense. Instead up the hdd to 7200rpm and get a 240-256gb ssd to boot on Edit: If you need the two sticks for mem bandwidth on the ryzen chip Id opt for a 2x4 config, to be fully clear though I dunno how much the extra bandwidth will do since you arent using the apu so if it doesnt really effect the cpu that badly just go with the 1x8gb and save room for upgrading

    Does anyone have a link to the LinusTechTips ebay?

    Theres an LTT eBay???

    Try OCing it if you're just trying to get better performance, assuming you haven't already, alot of new chips are about to launch so if you can OC and be fine on performance it may be worth waiting. If not new stuff always comes out so it's not a terrible choice to upgrade now, assuming it's still not performing at an acceptable level

    Check your mobo chipset, if you dont know offhand you can probably fairly easily find a model number or something and google that

    Are you just trying to get better performance or generally trying to upgrade? You can prob oc abit and be fine for a bit

    What motherboard socket/chipset are you on and what's your budget? if youre already on AM4/LGA 1151 theres not much point for switching sockets just for a little bit more preformance (they're both solid sockets), otherwise it may be different

    level 1 co_damsku Programmer at Colossal Order - Cities Skylines215 points·3 years ago·edited 3 years ago The game is best optimized for a 4 cores CPU (being the most mainstream and quite fitted to our simulation needs), we have the main thread, audio, pathfinding, simulation & water flow. Unity does under the hood also use threads quite heavily (main and rendering) and we do use some extra worker thread during the loading/saving process, so 8 cores should yield a noticeable performance improvement but it will not be in the 2x faster figures. It looks like City skylines is a quad core game, so freq would prob help more Edit: think my link sucked, dunno why it went somewhere else

    Lemme check but I wanna say city skylines is more freq dependent, I vaguely remember it using only like 2 cores...

    So... Syria

    Think there's any chance of Assad not winning? Anyone still care? Seems to not be important now that politians aren't putting it in the limelight for elections, especially now that the focus has very much shifted to asia.. kinda a depressing thought...
  12. Right, so all the parts for the $50 GAMING pc came in like a week ago, however stuff happened yada yada and Im off to Mexico in like two days. So I'ma put a pin in it till I get back and build a really amazing case for it after my festivities

      How can you build a gaming PC for $50?

      The power of eBay and free pallet wood via a nice local shop owner.

      Ive got a q8400, 6Gb ram, a Gtx 460, a really cheap 450?W psu, some really cheap chinese cooler, and an old laptop hard drive (I wanna say it was like 200Gb?)

    Is $1,135 a fair price?

    I cant seem to find where I bought it... I thought it was through newegg but its not, wasn't through b&h or amazon either, I even check eBay and its not in my purchase history on there... Weird

    Is $1,135 a fair price?

    Yea I wasn't gonna either but I bought a couple extra mobos and couldnt return them so figured I may as well make full comps outta them, also yea Im really hyped about that case. That thing is HEAVY (for a case) Probably? I'll hunt through my buy history but that sounds ishly similar. Maybe like $100 on the ram?

    Is $1,135 a fair price?

    Pretty much everything is new, I personally used the ram for a couple months before upgrading them but I didn't do any overclocking or anything while they were in use
