  1. Well i was going to say it looked like you could purchase this on AMD's website until I added it to my cart to check and saw the out of stock notice in a small header.
  2. Yeah when you compare this card to the Radeon Instinct MI50 its nearly identical in many ways. It seems like AMD just decided to put Video Out on the back end of that card they already had in the process of making and call it a gaming card. This probably means that we won't see or hear anything about Navi until late this year.
  3. I see that now. I just looked over on Newegg, and thats where I got the pricing. But I see that ebay and hardwareswaps are probably way cheaper. I'll be sure to take a look before pulling the trigger.
  4. I have a hard time thinking that buying used for $250-300, when yes I would need a new MOBO and RAM but a i7-8700k goes for almost the same price. My idea is going to be to get a new PSU and Case and Sell this unit with the 250GB SSD, and help cover the costs of the new build. I just have to figure out what price is not ripping someone off. I'm thinking about $400 but still contemplating. I really like the white LED's on the fans that just make it look like a clean build. Although with these particular fans and the cable extenders instead of replacement cables, the cable management is a bit of a mess in the back. Luckily there is no glass panel on that side too haha.
  5. Hello Everyone, Here is the start of my upgrade process. I'm waiting to get new major components until later this year because I want to see when the new Ryzen 3 series will be launching as well as potentially seeing if the Radeon VII will have a little brother. But none the less here is what I have right now. Components (Old stuff was from origional build 6 years ago): CPU: I5-3350P GPU: EVGA GTX 760 4GB (Still can run most things on 1080 Low to Medium) RAM: 16 GB ( G.Skill Ripjaw) MOBO: ASRock Z77 Extreme PSU: EVGA G3 650 Cables: UpHere Extensions (Not bad but probably going to get full replacements with the new build.) Case: Lian Li O11 Dynamic (Plan to go Liquid on the new build) And enjoy a few photos I took. Let me know what you think. Doing this little bit of tinkering has settled my bug to build while I wait out the next release of silicon.
  6. Thanks i'll keep that in mind as I continue to research on if I should even mess around with Linux. I got Windows 10 and have optimized it for the most part, so it really does work for what I do. I may get a Pi to mess around with Linux OS at some point instead.
  7. I havn't asked about different OS before, was just the other day I had been contemplating and starting researching this process. I'll do some more research through the forums to see if there is a similar thread I missed though.
  8. Hello All, So I have a computer that I am contemplating putting a Linux Build on. It currently has Windows 10 on it. I have a 250 GB SSD as the boot with a 1TB HDD along with it. Would I have to partition both drives in order to allocate space for each OS or would Linux be able to coincide with the 1 TB secondary drive without partitioning that. I am aware I would have to partition the boot drive but that shouldn't be a major deal. Thanks in advance, also if you have any suggestions on which flavor of Linux I should try let me know. My friend uses Arch Linux but not going to lie, that one scares me a little as apposed to something like Mint, Debian or Ubuntu. --Seacoast
  9. On the EVGA Website, the FTW Version is $400 more.
  10. This is good to know because i am contemplating switching my mouse from the Razer Naga and Keyboard Corsair Vengeance K70 to the Logitech G603 and G613 Wireless System. Still waiting to make the jump.
  11. I agree, slightly disappointed. I am hoping that by mid year they release a mid-tier GPU using the 7NM tech. Not everyone wants to spend over $500 for a GPU. I personally would be will to drop $400 to $450 but can't justify the premium price for the Radion VII for my use case. CPU wise, I am excited to see what it has when it gets closer, however I am a bit disappointed at the lack at information during the Keynote.
  12. I didn't even think about Prime Day, I may be able to get some great deals. Right now my PC runs what I need so no need to hop right out and upgrade it this week. Thanks.
  13. Well CES is in full swing and we have seen much of what is to come early 2019. I am planning on updating my Computer this year. Currently I have the following: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/DTurner09/saved/Pst299 CPU: i5-3350P GPU: EVGA GTX 760 4GB Memory: 16GB DDR3 MOBO: ASRock Z77 Exreme4 I am planning on doing an upgrade this year and can't decide if I would get more for my money if I wait till the mid summer. My use case is mostly gaming, some streaming potentially with friends but mostly general productivity and browsing reddit and youtube. Oh and I plan to also do some over clocking. My I'm contemplating the following Options: CPU: ---Option 1: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X ---Option 2: Wait for the 3rd Gen Mid Summer GPU: Trying to keep this part under $500 preferably in the 300-400 Range (Will be doing 1080p gaming) ---Option 1: GTX 2060 (~$350) ---Option 2: RX 590 (~$300-350) ---Option 3: Vega 56 or 64 (~$400-600) ---Option 4: Wait to see if AMD Release Mid Tier of 7nm GPU Memory: 16GB DDR4 3000 or 3200 MOBO: ASRock X470 Master SLI/AC (I have done a decent bit of research and I think this is the MOBO for me.)
  14. Just to see how bad the GTX 760 does with a i5-3350p Processor here are the Screenshots. Ran 3 Tests: 1080-Extreme (Avg FPS: 8.36) 1080-Medium (Avg FPS: 37.81) 720-Medium (Avg FPS: 68.05)
  15. Hello,So here is my use case. I currently have 2 24" monitors at my desk. On 1 of the monitors I have a HDMI Switch so if I want to play my PS4 I click the switch and the monitor switches from my PC to PS4 and the other monitor remains my PC. Then when i'm done gaming I can just click the switch and I'm back to a duel monitor setup.So what I am wondering is if I understand the Picture by Picture feature on many Super Ultra-wide Monitors like the Viotek SUW49C and Samsung LC49HG90DMNXZA have allows you to do this with just having 3 or more HDMI cables plugged in.I noted the SUW49C specifically has 4 HDMI Inputs while the Samsung has 2 HMDI and 1 DP, and allows you to choose sources when doing Picture by Picture. This would allow for a much cleaner display on the desk as you remove the bezel between 2 monitors side by side.If you have done this or know if its possible that would be great to know before spending $1000 or more on new peripherals on my desktop.Thank you,~Seacoast
