  1. Yep I just found it after your first comment it is actually a little bit cheaper than the 9400f with a little less single core performance, but better for the purpose of this PC cuz of hyperthreading. Anways the problem with your suggestion isn't the CPU the ryzen 3 3100 would be completely fine, but the evga GPU here in hungary is like 60 USD more expensive than the zotac one (btw I also found an INNO3D 1660 super for the same price as the zotac 1660) also the SSD and the case I couldn't find. Overall your build altogether came out to be 750 USD probably higher prices cause of VAT.
  2. It seems like a good build and definitely stronger except for the cpu, but I looked up the prices and it is waayy out of the budget so sadly this isn't an option.
  3. Budget (including currency): 200000 HUF (around 660 USD) Country: Hungary Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Call of Duty : World War 2 or similar current titles, occasional Video editing (I'm not sure what software) Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): So someone asked me to pick out parts for his PC and I've already got a build in mind and I'm curious if anyone has any opinion about it. He's looking to use this PC for the next 5 years or so. My current part list exceeds the budget by a bit (15000 HUF or 50 USD) so he asked me to tell him which parts could be downgraded and what drawbacks would that cause (he's not tech savvy). I was thinking of maybe buying 8 GB of memroy instead of 16GB but I'm not sure if it's worth it and if I should stick with 16 gigs for the sake of "future proofing" the build. The processor is the best price/performance I could find the Ryzen ones in this price range are 10% weaker in core performance but have hyperthreading like the r5 2600x. The store I'm using to pick out my parts is https://iponcomp.com/shop ( you can browse PC parts under Shop Menu -> PC accessories). The PC case I couldn't find on pcpartpicker, but what I chose is the Zalman ZM-T7.

  4. So i used hwinfo64 as @TofuHaroto suggested and each core is registering the same speed as task manager does. @Void Master No, i didn't pause the game that's why I was surprised, but now I checked and the cpu clock is around 4.3 while ingame and when I tab out, the game probably enters some kind of low performance mode. So yeah thanks for the suggestions, so it's just underclocking while I'm not viewing the game window, kinda wierd i haven't noticed it before. @Zando Bob well i didn't disable this when trying to overclock but I got to 5.15 stable so i was happy with it 5.2 was like ok until I ran a stress test and then it bsod-d.
  5. So one day I randomly opened my task manager and looked at the CPU clock while playing Elite:Dangerous and I saw this (picture attached) and i was surprised seeing my CPU running at 1.91 GHz is that normal, like can the processor underclock itself below the base frequency or is it just a false reading? This surprised me because I've never seen it running below 4.6 or so GHz.
  6. What kind of incident? Anyway you having an issue with a specific gpu doesn't mean that a nother model from the same manufacturer will have a problem and I'm saying this while also being an nvidia fan, but in this case buying and AMD gpu is actually more worth it. (I have an rtx 2060 in my build) What do you mean fold?
  7. I think the vega 56 would be a better choice since it fits his budget and the 1080 can only get a 10 fps advantage at most, so i don't think it's worth the 35£ premium
  8. What is the resolution of your monitor? I'm guessing 1080p cuz with the budget of 300£ you wouldn't be able to get 144fps at 1440p. Sooo I'm an Nvidia fan, so I would go with a GeForce GTX 1660Ti but you can find the radeon RX VEGA 56 for very similar prices and that actually performs a bit better so I actually recommend buying that over the 1660Ti, but that is still only gonna get you around 100-120fps on 1080p max settings in most games if you really need at least 144 fps than you need to find a stronger card that's used.
  9. Thank you everybody for your answers, the retailer was kind enough to change my order and I could choose another RAM and I chose the Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000Mhz which actually has a bit lower CAS latency. 15 instad of 16 and it's like 2 dollars cheaper but it wasn't in stock when I ordered my system so that's why I got the T-Force one initially.
  10. So I was about to buy a new system with a Dark Rock Pro 4 and g.skill aegis RAM but it went out of stock on the day I wanted to order it, but I wanted to buy the system anyway so I went with the closest option in price which was the Team Group T-force delta RGB modules and I forgot to check the height of the modules and the clearence of the DRP4 and now im wondering if it would fit under the DRP4 at all since I've read somewhere that the memory clearence for it is 40mm and the team group site said the modules are 49mms tall. (This is my first system that im building for myself btw so I have no experience with the DRP4) Any opinions, maybe someone who owns the DRP4?
