    Should I get 660 ti sli?

    If it had a mining bios, I don't think it would even have a DVI out Also, reviews seem to indicate it's just a regular bios for gaming use.

    Should I get 660 ti sli?

    Probably some OEM card or somesuch. If you are strapped for cash, then it's hard to argue $99 and you probably only use one monitor anyway. It will also blow away the 660 in SLI

    Crossfire 580's or 2070?

    Neither. Get a 2060/Vega 56 or 64 and tweak them to nearly equal the 2070, or pony up the extra coin for the 2080. IMO, of course. Dual GPUs can be good, but only if the game supports it, and from a power and vram perspective it's a huge waste. In some scenarios dual GPUs are worse performance.

    Sapphire Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 DVI-D (UEFI) Graphics Card https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MCDNQX2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_QMlBCbH7ZQS8E $99 right now if you don't mind just the DVI out

    Your CPU is the bottleneck for the majority of gaming in 2019. You could upgrade now, but you could also wait another couple of months for Ryzen 3000 to launch. It would be a better opportunity to A) get Ryzen 3000, B) get Ryzen 1000 or 2000 at a discounted price, or C) reassess what Intel releases. It's hard to say how much this is all going to cost without your location. In the US, you can get yourself decently kitted out with a Ryzen 5 2600, 16GB DDR4 3000 RAM, and a B450 motherboard for around $350. You may also wish to look out for some secondhand Ryzen 1000 series parts now as many have upgraded to Ryzen 2000. There is generally a 10% difference overall performance between equal category Ryzen 1000 and Ryzen 2000. Meanwhile the performance boost from FX to Ryzen 1000 is about 52%.

    My Hard Disk Sentinel shows my hdd at 4% health

    Good excuse to upgrade imo
  8. Edited just looked up the P3 - that's definitely a weird flex
  9. The reality is that if you got a high end chip on a Z170 board, there's little reason to even upgrade to the 9th generation. The only thing you are getting is somewhat better frequency and more cores. If you needed the high amount of cores to begin with, then you choose the wrong platform anyway. And despite what many people will tell you, people seem to upgrade motherboards anyway. Just look at all the signatures on these threads. Most of the time I see 2nd gen Ryzen chips and second gen AM4. Upgrade path is awesome and all, but I sincerely believe it's value is overrated.
  10. Where did you get this information? My understanding is that they will "work" on all AM4 boards, but no telling on how "well" (see i9-9900k on H310 board) Stumbled across this on another forum

    Quick noobie questions about CPU'

    https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/core_i9/i9-9900k It will usually boost to 4.7 or 4.8, depending on usage and thermal headroom. Example, my 8700 at stock settings can boost to 4.7 single core with an all core boost of 4.3. In most scenarios it always just boosts to 4.3, though, because there's rarely ever only a single core workload for it.
  12. Iirc s long as you keep it cool it should boost to 4.7ghz all core Maybe try undervolting to reduce heat?
  13. Pull the cmos battery for a while, try again

    32gb or 16gb? and what ram?

    Unless you specifically need 32gb for your use case, it's a waste. The ONE exception is you you are getting it for looks, because you can't put a price on beauty.
  15. What platform are you interested in?
