    quakeguy81 got a reaction from Crunchy Dragon in Best CPU for AM3+ socket?   
    The best AM3+ CPU you can get is the AMD FX-9590, but you can probably get the same performace out of the AMD FX-8350 if you overclock it.

    I was going to say something asinine like "Nice PC for emulating Super Mario World."  It turns out it's a real SNES.

    Here is an idea for a Scrapyard Wars, build a retro PC and make the rules it can't be a Pentium 4 or greater.

    quakeguy81 reacted to dgsddfgdfhgs in 1070 future-proof?   
    +/-10 fps in such high number (100+fps) means a tie
    If I want to max everything at 1080p 60hz, I would say RTX2060 can hold up quite well for 5yrs , then hope 1440p will become mainstream?

    Absolutely, I'm just pointing out that 2060 and 2070 aren't really that far apart to begin with.

    imo all cards beyond xx70 are not worth it for the slight perf increase
    gtx1070/ti 1080 are so close & same with rtx2060~2080

    If you look at benchmarks, the RTX 2060 is comparable to the GTX 1080.  You can find one for about $350 and it is brand new.

    quakeguy81 reacted to Troika in Windows 7 SP1 vs Windows 10 for older hardware   
    The issues I have are games that don't work at all on my main rig or games that are altogether broken, such as Hitman Contracts hanging on the opening movie, Quake III being broken in the menu and making everything unselectable because you can't see the menu at all, and Star Trek Voyager Elite Force refuses to install at all.

    It does have cpu usage spikes and uses excess amounts of ram when you have very old hardware.
    My question is soley concerning if its worth debloating and optimizing windows 10 or use a debloated and optimized windows 7. I've been using windows 10 on my main rig since I upgraded to Ryzen in March this year and have been using it in a virtual box environment for about three years and the technical review for eight months when I was in tech school. I'm fine with using it on my main machine because it fixed some annoyances from windows 7, such as not having to sign into my NAS every time I log into my computer. I'd rather not install and format my SSD excessively. I've tried dual booting windows 7 and windows 10 before but they don't really like each other very much. Windows 7 works fine but whenever you choose to launch windows 10, it bricks the drive for some reason.

    Nice grab.  It would make for a good retro gaming build.  Lots of older games run great on 486 hardware.

    Personally, I feel that Steam offers more for the consumer, with features like:
    Family Sharing (buy once for the entire family, with separate save files) Steam Workshop (user mods) Steam In-Home Streaming (download once, use on multiple PC's, or use a remote PC to run a game and stream video to less powerful one) Big Picture Mode (Console like control) Good controller support VR Dominance Steam Box, Controller, and VR Headset  
    I also don't like the look of the Epic Games store, but that is just my personal taste. I understand many like it.
     
    While Steam does take a larger cut from game developers, they also are using those funds to create features for the users, and even dedicated hardware. The Epic Games store just seems like a place to earn money, while Steam seems like a place for the consumers to have their way.

    Yeah, the second router you just disable the DHCP server and connect it to the first router on any port.  That way the second router can exist on the same network as the first router.

    Full size ATX board with VRM cooling built like a reactor casing? https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-P55A-UD4P-rev-10#ov
    Or HWinfo is wrong, says 255A at 1.328V is about 340W. Some of the chokes are uncomfortable to touch, maybe 110-120F, the VRM heat sink is just warm to touch.
     
    So this water block is not so good, the radiator end of things seems OK albeit very rudimentary fan control and poor temp sense. It is working. Water temps are creeping up, 35C. CPU temps are holding around 75C, the loop is stabilizing. If I kick the fans up to speed 3 (full blast) it makes a lot of noise and does bring the temps down a little bit to nearer 70C but it's not worth the noise.

    Hi All, 
     
    New to this forum, I decided to build my first gaming PC around 6 months ago, I dont really have any experience with this sort of thing and just bought my parts depending on what good deal I could get at the time so if I have an awful combination of parts I apologise 😅 I don't get much chance to play due to work and essentially just wanted to play planet coaster hence my pretty casual 'battle station'. 
    So here it goes:
    Thetmaltake 240mm rgb aio for gpu
    Thermaltake view 71
    Cooler master rgb aio for cpu
    Samsung 250gb nvme ssd
    Corsair ram 8gb x 4 3000mhz
    Amd ryzen 5 2600
    Gigabyte x470 ultra gaming motherboard
    Samsung 860evo 500gb ssd
    Asus rog geforce strix gtx 1060 6gb
    Corsair vs650 power supply
     
    It runs the games I have so far on 1080 with no problem so I'm pretty happy but hope to maybe learn a bit more to eventually start upgrading!
