  1. My mother wants to upgrade her really old 'home office' PC, so I put together a plan for a Mini ITX 2400G build. I don't really wan't to add a GPU, to compromise on the small form factor design, but I was wondering whether the Vega 11 APU, is capable of two 1080p monitors/ one 4K monitor fine for non -gaming use?
  2. One of my friends (J), isn't really that tech saavy, but wants to join the PCMR (primarily for gaming). He said he had a round about £900 budget, so I put together this list for him, as a start for him to inquire into: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor £119.00 @ Amazon UK Motherboard MSI B450 Gaming Plus ATX AM4 Motherboard £83.25 @ CCL Computers Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory £72.78 @ Aria PC Storage Crucial MX500 250 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive £41.44 @ Amazon UK Storage Seagate Barracuda Computer 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £52.50 @ Aria PC Video Card Sapphire Radeon RX 590 8 GB NITRO+ Video Card £203.46 @ Ebuyer Case Corsair SPEC-05 ATX Mid Tower Case £43.99 @ Amazon UK Power Supply Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply £70.68 @ Amazon UK Wireless Network Adapter Gigabyte GC-WB1733D-I PCIe x1 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi Adapter £25.40 @ CCL Computers Monitor AOC 24V2Q 23.8" 1920x1080 75 Hz Monitor £117.97 @ Ebuyer Keyboard Redragon K552-R KUMARA Wired Gaming Keyboard £45.00 Mouse Logitech G402 Wired Optical Mouse £24.99 @ Amazon UK Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £900.46 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-08-10 19:31 BST+0100 What do y'all think of this? Any things I should cut down on, or re-adjust the prices any way? I don't think he really needs more than 60/75hz, for the type of games he plays. ,Thanks
  3. In my setup, I've decided for a 2TB HDD, along with an SSD boot drive. I was deciding between the 240gb MX 500 for £40, while the Kingston A400 (480gb) in my country is only £45. Is the DRAM controller significantly worth it? As the double capacity does seem pretty attractive to me.
  4. SLI's basically dead, would definitely recommend re-selling, and getting a 5700 or 2060 Super. Much better value, performance, and compatability, especially for a nice 144hz experience at ultra.
  5. I was wondering if anyone could recommend to me a budgety 23-24" IPS Freesync monitor at 60hz (preferably with speakers, even if they're pretty bad). I''ve been looking into monitors like the (Philips 246E9QJAB/00 23.8" ), but many of the ones I've found have little reviews, don't appear in PCPartPicker, and some seem to have build quality issues, like ones from AOC. I would greatly appreciate if anyone could recommend a £100-ish ($120 USD), thanks.
  6. I have no clue how this topic lasted so long but here is an important piece of information to consider:
  7. What card would you call 'better' at that price. Apart from the Vega 56 with 8GB, no cards until the 2070 come with that much VRAM. I wouldn't either want to have worse upgrade to the 590, which comes no where close.
  8. I was thinking to pick up the 1660TI Windforce for my new build for around £240, but one of my key concerns is the measly 6GB of Vram. I would only be playing at 1920 x 1080, but I wouldn't be upgrading for around 5 years or so. Should I get the Vega 56 for about £40 more, for the 8G Vram, when it performs the same if not worse in non- Vulkan games. What do you think?
  9. I was deciding between two different gaming monitors: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/hqmxFT/aoc-monitor-g2260vwq6 , and the https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/GLm323/acer-sb220q-bi-215-1920x1080-75-hz-monitor-sb220q-bi. They both are 75hz, Freesync with the TN at 1ms, with the IPS at 4ms. They're about the same price at £90 (around US$110 according to Google). My main issue would be the smaller 21.5" size, but what do y'all think? Additionally would you know any 60hz IPS 24/23"s with FreeSync , because that would be a good middle ground, even if it is a bit more expensive. Thanks
  10. Assuming that AMD will continue to suppport AM4 untill R 4000/5000, what do you think would be a safer bet for the long term? A higher tier B450 board (that may be discontinued by Ryzen 5000) or a lower end X470 Board for the same price. I was considering the MSI B450 Tomohawk (for around $110 USD) but I would be interested in any X470 boards you all would consider 'goodish/moderate' for the same price point, as a starting point for my research. X570 seems off the table for now, considering that most of them start of at around $200- 250. Thanks, AC.
  11. I was considering upgrading to R5 2600, but was wondering if it could still be considered a 'safe' choice in 2019. Of course, its a good processor, 6 cores, 12 threads, but AMD only assured its lifespan would be untill 2020, probably discontinued by Ryzen 4000/5000. Just wondering what would the newest Intel sockets be for i5 alternatives are. I'm not too sure (LGA1150, 1151 , 2066), but the main alternative I've seen is the i5 9400f for LGA1151, but i'm not sure how long it would last either.
  12. I've been looking at buying the G403 for about out £35 (which is about $45), it looks good, has RGB, control, weights, etc. Although on many marketplaces, like Newegg and Amazon, there's a large minority of people who have issues with noisy clicks, bad scroll wheels, etc. Just wondering if anyone has had any good/bad personal experiences with this mouse, and know any nice gaming alternatives within the same price bracket. I would really appreciate any input. Thanks, AC

  14. I'm looking for an ATX mid tower case, and am considering either the Phantex P300 (or maybe even the P350X for a little bit more, for that RGB aesthetic) or the Corsair Spec 04, both for around £60 (which is $76 USD according to Google). My friends say the Spec 04 has better airflow, and is much less cramped (42L compared to 36L), but I really won't be utilising much of that apart from an ATX motherboard and a Vega 56. I'm definitely leaning towards the P300, but what do you all think (I'm not too experienced). As well as this is it me or is the SPEC 04 the most atrocious looking item, I have ever seen, or is that me? The Phantex P300 The SPEC 04
