  1. Yeah, same here - noticed the top two videos were like 2 years+ old.
  2. Thanks, that's actually really helpful! I didn't actually pick up that swapping to an RTX2060 might actually be in my budget - I originally didn't see much reason in going with a R5 2600 over a R5 1600 but actually, I can now see that it would be worthwhile. I'm not great with chipset versions, I thought that the B series was a decent mid-range chipset with X series right at the top of the line - am I right in thinking that? I can, of course, add around a £25-50 contingency to my budget so I may stick with a few of the original parts (like the mechanical hard drive (I have been using exclusively Seagate hard drives in most of my devices now for the last few years - so you can tell they're a brand I trust) and the monitor), but that really does help out! Thanks Herman!
  3. Hi. So at the moment, I'm saving up for a new build (unfortunately parents are splitting up and I'm going to need a desktop at both houses (desktop > laptop)). In the future, I'd quite like to invest in a VR setup (something cheap like an Oculus or a 1st/2nd Gen Vive) and do some quite intensive 'work' on my computer (read: AAA games). So a decent CPU/GPU combo is ideal at assembly. I would quite like to have a moderate amount of RGB to make my desk slightly more appealing (and make me feel special). I've put the setup through the calculator at https://thebottlenecker.com and ended up with 0.82% bottleneck. I know the Wraith Max cooler isn't amazing when it comes to overclocking (I've watched JayzTwoCents' video around that subject), however it's powerful enough to allow for a tiny amount of overclocking to make the bottleneck closer to 0%. If someone could provide some feedback and maybe some suggestions? My budget is around £950 max.
