  1. this sounds like a good solution, however, im not familiar with raid. I did a quick search and found this https://pureinfotech.com/setup-raid-5-windows-10/ would this be how I should do it? do I need specific drives, or will regular drives work, as im not sharing files on the network, or leaving my pc running 24/7, and will I lose all the data due to formatting when I do it?
  2. While it wouldnt be the end of the world if i lost it, it would be a nightmare to re rip everything.
  3. I have no more space inside the case, only 3 trays, though theres no reason i couldnt replace one of the two 1tb drives i have. What about redundency?
  4. Like a hard drive dock kind of thing? If thats what u mean i thought about that shortly after posting, but 3.5 inch drives are too big for me to physically store them and 2.5 inch drives are more expensive, but ill see what i can do.
  5. I have an 8tb seagate baracuda at the moment as my main storage drive, its very new so im not concerned about failure anytime soon (fingerd crossed), though it doesnt have any redundency. My need is simply more storage, and i thought of a nas, but they seem very expensive, and building one also seems too expensive for my use case as well. I have about 1.6tb free on that drive, i would like to double total capacity to 16tb, with redundency as well. All i need is more space, i dont need to access my files while out and about. Its mainly movie and tv shows ripped from bluray at full quality, no reencoding. I just move the stuff i want to watch or what i may want to watch to a 2tb external hdd i have connected directly to my tv. Nas drives seem quite a bit more expensive, and i dont want to spend a whole load more money on the convenience of not needing to shuffle files around if i want to watch them, 2tb is plenty for many movies and even full series taking 100s of gb, so it itsnt a massive inconvenience, nor is not being able to stream them on the go. If i want to watch it on my phone, i simply reencode with handbrake using nvenc, so its super snappy. What would u recommend?
  6. But with the consoles having ssds, wont that cause game devs to optimize games for them? Causing huge gains in load times?
  7. The next generation of consoles, the ps5 and project scarlett are going to have ssds that are much faster than todays drives, probably pcie gen 4 and potentionally maxing out the x4 bandwith, which i believe sits around the 8 gigabytes a second range. Pcie 4 ssds now are around 5. Will current ssds still be relevant for PCs as it relates to gaming when these consoles are released at the end of 2020? What kind of performance difference will there be? Im probably not going to upgrade my pc as it stands, and build a new one early to mid 2021, but i may salvage some stuff from my current one, namely the ssds, i have a 500gb samsung 970 evo plus, and a 1tb samsung 860 evo. Will these still be sufficient at that point in time? I may buy another new one as a boot drive at that point anyway, but im just wondering. I have plenty of time to think about it.
  8. What settings should i use in geforce experience and davinci resolve to retain quality after uploading to youtube? Should i set gfe to record at 2160p 130mbits to have the highest quality source material before youtube compresses it? If i play at 1440p will recording at this resolution cause problems? Is recording in 1080p 50mbits and rendering at 4k a better option? Or just leaving it at 1440p?
  9. Yh makes sense. Dont care too much about ray tracing now, and by the time it becomes a standard, i would certainly be upgrading anyway.
  10. At first, I had no idea what I wanted to buy between these 2 cards. When amd dropped the prices i was set on the 5700 xt (wanted to wait for aib cards though) but now I'm not too sure. The 2070 super is quite a bit more expensive than the reference model 5700 xt. The cheapest i can find is a zotac gaming twin fan for £489 and the reference 5700 xt is £389. How much more expensive will the customs navi cards be, and given the heat problems of the reference model, what kind of performance bump. From what i know, the 5700 xt is only 2-5% behind the 2070S on average, so im assuming a decent performance jump would make it the better option hands down. I have a few ray tracing games, like sottr and metro exodus, though i havent got around to playing them yet, and im looking forward to cyber punk. Which do u think i should get? My monitor is 1440p 144hz, but i would like to play more single player games on my tv with a controller, which is 1080p, so maintaining 60fps with raytracing shouldnt be a problem if i go for the nvidia card. Also, while i can order the 2070s right now from amazon, it wont arrive for some time, the zotac one says it will be in stock on the 17th of august, and most of the others say they be dispatched in 1-3 months, so im kind of forced to wait either way. What do u think i should do? Is ray tracing worth it for upcoming games? I have 1060 3gb atm.
  11. Im planning in buying a 5700xt when the AIB models are released, but have no plans in upgrading my cpu (R5 2600). Im not the kind of person who plays on 1080p lowest settings for the sake of dem frames, so i think that will help me here. If im playing 1440p max settings, will it be worth upgrading my cpu? I was planning on waiting til 4th gen ryzen is releases before upgrading or even until the 5th gen that leaves AM4 behind. If the performance benefits are decent though (in the realm of 10% or so), then i may consider an upgrade for my cpu as well. I have 16gb of 3200mhz CL16 ram as i know ryzen likes fast ram.
  12. Another question that i didnt want to open a new thread for. What about b550 and 'big navi'? I'm willing to wait a little bit before i make a purchase and was wondering if these would be worth it. If i choose to wait for 4th gen ryzen, i think im safe in assuming a b550 would be better than a b450 for those cpus. And im willing to pay more for a gpu than what the 5700xt costs, maybe up to £600 if the price/performance doesnt take that big of a hit. When do you think higher end gpus would be launched like a 5800xt or 5900xt? If at all.
  13. Yh, blower coolers aren't the one. Though if the AIB cards are too far from msrp i may go with something else.
  14. At the moment I have an idea about how I want to upgrade. I'm probably gonna buy a 5700XT to replace my 1060 3gb, a b450 tomahawk/gaming pro carbon to replace my a320, and 650w psu to replace my 450w one. But what i'm not too sure about is whether i should buy a 3rd gen ryzen cpu. I currently have a R5 2600, so I feel like will serve me at least until next generation. I believe AMD will release ryzen 4000 on the AM4 platform, at which point i would probably buy it. Do you think the b450 boards will support 4th gen? Or should i buy 3rd gen and wait until AMD is done with AM4. I'm not sure whether the 2600 will bottleneck a 5700XT but if the gains are significant with a 3600(X) or a 3700X for example i will probably consider it.
