  1. If you feel confident that the cooler feels compatible, then go for it. My suggestion is if you get to a point where you feel that you're forcing something then I would stop. (I'm just restating common sense, but you'd be surprised of the stupid stuff I have done).
  2. They're basically the same card except for memory speed for the one that is $30 cheaper is a bit slower but you can always give it a little boost (Overclock)
  3. I guess I read differently. That is why we are here, to learn
  4. AC Odyssey is a game that takes advantage on multiple cores and has been said that 4 cores is just not enough for such a game. GTA is kind of the same way but less severe. Most likely your core count (not single threaded performance) is affecting your smooth gameplay.
  5. A Ryzen 2200G or Athlon 200GE are perfect options as they are cheaper than $100, and the motherboards can stay cheap but reliable as you don't need them to overclock. RAM prices are not too bad and you don't need anything intense for a home server!
  6. Look when I tell you this, you are going to think I am insane. My favorite upgrade by far to my super budget PC is throwing a SATA SSD drive in there and installing a fresh set of windows. Watching those boot times were so satisfying compared to my old HDD. This is just an example, however, NVME M.2 drives are widely popular with even better RW Speeds. That is my next upgrade and it is totally worth the switch
  7. Did you have the motherboard shipped together with the RAM and CPU already installed?
  8. I mean you'll have an idea but you never know if you'll hit silicon lottery or garbage. It all depends how well you can simulate the cooling process and assuming you have everything tightened and put together very effectively. This is where it becomes unrealistic as they make sure all the screws and what not are being tightened the same all around. Summary: Too many variables to really tell you how accurate it could be. Power delivery from 110 v Outlet could be "dirty" and unreliable. you never know
  9. To really know the used parts and computer market, you must learn the used car market. Most cars will lose value as they grow older and used on a daily basis. Some of those upgrades aren't game changers like upgrading a whole processor and GPU. At that point it is a completely new computer. Cars will degrade in value as long as it is being used, despite the little bit of cash put in to keep it running crisp. If this doesn't make sense, I'll try to sum it up. You must understand the used car market in order to understand the used computer/parts market.
  10. There will never be a perfect combo with no bottleneck one way or another. I think there will be a minimal cpu bottle neck but nothing close. Bottlenecking isn't widely covered unfortunately...
  11. I just was assuming something cheaper based off your CPU choice. A used RX 570 destroys some modern games and you can find it for less than $100
  12. You may need to add a cpu and a much faster processor if you're even thinking about playing fortnite at all. Im super tired. scratch that. Maybe a gtx 1050? I used to play fortnite on this card with an older processor. (on low settings)
  13. Can I ask what you plan to do with this PC?
  14. Single threaded performance are near identical with Ryzen 3rd gen barely lacking behind. If Linus made the move, why can't you?
