  1. No one that i know have a credit card, always ended badly.
  2. Being under 18 doesnt help with the credit card situation
  3. Ebay AU doesnt seem to have a "pay off" option and stuff like afterpay doesnt work
  4. Seems to be much out of mu budget. Bugger!
  5. This is very true. Could i use a B450 Mobo instead of a x470? Would there be any perceivable difference?
  6. That CPU is an amazing find, in USD,but sadly a little bit high for my budget. I have already picked up 16GB of ram a little while ago. Somewhere around $300 AUD is my budget as its a tough time of year for money. Thanks for your help though
  7. My main monitor is 75hz And yes, I would like to start streaming and video editing. I am also doing a graphics class at school so I use Autodesk Inventor and AudoCad quite regularly which means lots and lots of CPU rendering.
  8. What i meant by the CPU usage is that more tasks that i am doing are reaching the max performance of the CPU. And yes, a new 2600: https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B07B41WS48/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=ANEGB3WVEVKZB&psc=1
  9. Seems like they are more expensive by themselves then getting a CPU, MOBO and a better upgrade path. https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=i7+8700&_sacat=0&_sop=15
  10. Hey Guys! I have been thinking, is it worth it to upgrade a i3-1800 to a Ryzen 5 2600 along with a new motherboard? I am starting to see my CPU hit 100% utilization more than i would like especially in GTAV. For comparison if i was to just get a 6 core intel processor (i5 9400f) it would cost about the same amount as the 2600. Thanks for your help guys!
  11. Actually thank you so much man! I think i might grab 2 of the 2450's next pay week as i also would like slightly more single threaded performance. Thanks ma man!
  12. I'n not getting any encoding errors and the MC server im trying to run as long as the server is up as my friends play on it basically constantly, for some reason..
  13. Thanks for the info Are RX cards ok at Encoding?
  14. What GPU would you recommend on the lower end to act as an Encoder? My CPU when recording at 1080p 60FPS, Very Fast usage preset.
