  1. It is worth mentioning however that the 2060 has processing units that are good for streaming, as well as some nice comforts the NVIDIA offers (and of course, RTX). The RX can run quite hot as well, so be sure that if you go with that that you do not get a blower style card. Also, no matter what what, something in your system will be bottle necked. Finding what does it the least it what you want.
  2. I have: Samsung 850EVO SSD - 500GB Samsung 850EVO SSD - 250GB Two old 250GB hard drives I am afraid will fail any day now. For someone who does the occasional video editing project and records some game play, I need some bulk storage. I have been looking at this as it is on sale: https://www.newegg.com/blue-wd20ezaz-2tb/p/N82E16822234372?reviews=all I don't want to spend much, but is a HDD worth it? I have a mobo with a NVMe spot and I know SSD's are getting cheaper. I guess I am asking if a HDD as my bulk storage is a good idea. I don't really need more fast storage, and I do plan to remove the other HHDs. Specs: Ryzen 5 2600 ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F Gaming (what a name) 2x8GB Trident Z RGB 3000Mhz ASUS STRIX 970 Thanks for your time!
  3. I want to upgrade my motherboard. I will be buying RGB RAM, so I wanted a RGB or neutral mobo. It was seeming as the B450 Tomahawk was going to be the one, as its good price and look was almost what I was looking for. I don't like the red lights, but it was the best I could find. Until now! https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XQgzK8/asus-rog-strix-b450-f-gaming-atx-am4-motherboard-strix-b450-f-gaming What do you think?
  4. What about VRMark? I have also seen some videos of people playing VR with a FX-6300, and they seem fine. Also, I could overclock my CPU. If I seem a little bias to the VR, that's because I am! However I don't want that to get the best of me, so I thought I'd get a few more opinions. Anyway, I will do some more research and thank you for you feed back!
  5. Alright. I do plan to upgrade some day, it's just a now or later kind of thing. Thanks for you input however!
  6. Oh, I completely forgot! I will think about that, thanks for your input!
  7. I have been thinking about buying a HTC Vive. With the times I have used it, I loved it. I have played Super Hot, Beat Saber, Job Sim, and Tilt Brush. I can not explain how much I love the Vive and VR. The Rift did not stand out as much as the Vive, but it's good too. For a used Vive running at $440, It is right about the price of the upgrade I have in mind. (Click here for the Vive amazon page) I plan to upgrade from; AMD FX-6300 8GB DDR3 Memory at 800MHz Some Mobo I don't know anything about, except it's buy Gigabyte To; Ryzen 5 2600 16GB Trident.Z RGB Memory at 3000MHz MSI - B450 TOMAHAWK (PC Part Picker list here) I will be keeping my GPU, which is a GTX 970, and is on the list of GPU's for the Vive. On one side, I should upgrade my PC, as it's showing its age... But on the other side I love VR, and I think my PC can handle it for the time until I upgrade. I am ether going to upgrade, or buy the Vive first, but I will do both in the end. I have done the steam VR test and never dropped below 90FPS. I also ran VRMark, and got a score of 5,503 (Avg FPS was 119). So, my question is; For someone who loves VR, should I buy the HTC Vive then later upgrade my PC, or should I upgrade my PC, then get a Vive.
  8. I have a kit in the parts list that is 2 8GB sticks at 3000MHz. I would like the speed as I know the Ryzen CPU's bennifet from it.
  9. !My budget is $400-$450! I am planning to upgrade to https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gKPcRJ From: AMD FX 6300 Some Motherboard 8GB DDR3 800MHz My GPU is a Asus Strix 970 I am planning on getting a HTC Vive, but I think I should upgrade first. I have done a few benchmarks and think my current PC could handle it, as with the test I have done I have never gone below 100FPS. However... Would the Ryzen 5 2600 be a sold upgrade for VR? Should I go with Intel on this? I really like my AMD chip, and would like to not move away from AMD. I don't think there are any Intel chips that are cheap enough anyway. I like the Ryzen upgrade, as it is good for the future.
  10. Alright, Ill keep a eye on it. Thanks!
  11. Is this right? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F85YKLJ/ref=twister_B07FDPVLCM?_encoding=UTF8&th=1 I thought I remember seeing it for way less a few days ago.
  12. So I plan to get this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gKPcRJ But with the RGB memory, I would really like a RGB motherboard. I have herd good things about the Tomahawk, but are there any other B450 boards of similar price and equal (or better) performance.
  13. I don't know the technicals but accumulations of dust, or in your case poop, can cause some components to short or over heat. I think... Either way you should clean out what you can to be safe. Hope I helped.
  14. I am upgrading from: AMD FX 6300 Some gigabyte mobo 8GB DDR3 at 800 MHz My GPU is not part of the upgrade but it's a ASUS Stirx 970
