  1. First time running cinebench and just recently built my pc (very recent actually hehe). So, here we go. I have not attempt any OC or anything of the sort yet. But for now, this is what I am working with.
  2. At this point I am just torn between 144p 144hz monitor and one that is G-sync. Such a pain because G-sync just adds so much to the price. Like, I can get a nice 32' 144p monitor but it is freesync, which would mean potential need to use Vsync. Such a bother haha, love the idea of G-sync but of course, $$
  3. Well the "monitor you want" is what I am looking for assistance with. Since there are so many brands, different dimensions and variables. If I knew which monitor I wanted, I would go for it lol. Monitor it deserves as in one that adequately utilizes the hardware and is not a limiting factor. That is why I was looking for suggestions and to see people's preferences to get an idea. As an example I found this: https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Non-Glare-Refresh-FreeSync-Monitor/dp/B076HZ7CZK Annoying part is it being FreeSync and not Gsync, which also raises the price. Thank you for your advice.
  4. Greetings, So I am looking for either a single nice monitor or dual monitors for my setup. Ive built a pc (parts are on their way) and admittedly, my eyes were bigger than my mouth. As in, PC will be great but... I can't quite afford the monitors it deserves (one dayyyyy). Essentially I am going to be running an RTX 2080 with i7 9700k. What I am looking for is suggestions based on well, partial personal preferences but overall something along of the lines of what is feasible. Budget is around 400-500 per monitor but if getting a single good one (larger too), can go higher. Would look for something at least 144hz. I have been using dual monitors for a long time so that would be my preference. I can't right now, but I would also plan on using monitor arms (forgot their names) so something attachable to the desk. Obviously I should be going for something really amazing but sadly can't at this time and current monitor will not cut it, that is for sure >< Although I imagine not very important but gpu does have 1 x HDMI 2.0b and 3 x displayport 1.4. If need any additional information let me know. Oh and I will be using my PC for gaming; so overwatch, monster hunter, star citizen, dota 2, etc. Thanks for the help!
  5. Thank you, I am always iffy and unsure about RAM. They just confused me at times haha. Ill check out the updated mobo and the one you recommended. And had not known about the discontinued Evo as well. For the case, I am already going to be changing that up, I did not know about there being newer version. Thank you for your suggestions! I have updated the OP to reflect more updated version
  6. Thank you! I actually did not know about the newer case; been on vacation so I am only now able to build it. But will say, I really do like the case. I am curious though, I potentially may add a second GPU down the line which bumps the power draw to 584W, would a 650W still be recommended with that possibility? The SSD is nice and 1tb would be good considering how large some games are getting these days. Thank you for the recommendations, I know case wise I am already going to be changing to the newer one.
  7. Been watching Linus for so long but not until today did I actually make an account haha. But given what I am planning, looking for some help. This will be around the 2k range (excluding monitors since that I will need help for after I get the build planned). So I am looking to build a new pc. For this build, I am hovering around the 2k range with wiggle room of course. Currently sticking to 16GB of ram (2x8) and if need be, I can add two additional sticks down the line. For now I am ignoring the monitors since that I will seek advice on another time. The case I chose because, well I wont lie, I just think it is gorgeous. I am thinking of adding some lights inside but not going all out. The parts I am most uncertain about are the motherboard and powersupply. I never know if one day might go for dual GPU along with adding additional hardware so I wanted to get a good amount of power but without needing something crazy like 1k watt or whatever. I was looking for a solid motherboard and I probably picked something way more expensive than I should go for, so advice on that is needed. This will be my first build ever using some form of liquid cooling, for that I am quite new to. So I went with one that I believe is of sufficient size for my case and does not require tubing or anything too complex. I am going with a white theme here so originally looking for white-based hardware, hence the RAM. I am looking for longevity with my system, and although there is a lot of debate with regards to the GPU, I will be sticking with the RTX 2080 (not the highest model, I placed this model down as a place holder since do not know which specifically RTX 2080 I should go for, even though I know many would also recommend simply 1080ti instead to save cost).The 8700k CPU seems the most solid and in all honesty, I am not sold over the newer versions but that is just me. From what I saw, the i7 9700k is approximately $48.00 but unsure if the improvement is worthwhile. I can go for it but would like feedback on rather or not it is worth while For my gaming purposes, this CPU seems sufficient. I am looking to playing Star Citizen, Monster Hunter World, and generally new games with ultra settings. Although not going all out, I also would like to at some point (when system is built and I have better internet), streaming. Any help would be appreciated and as mentioned, I know the 2080 will be a point of contention but looking for assistance on most other things. Especially with Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up.
