  1. I found a Gigabyte G1.SNIPER Z97 for 85€ with all accessories. Do you think that's a good deal?
  2. Did you buy a custom design? And if yes, which one?
  3. Hey! i'm looking for a GPU to fit into a i7 4790 system for gaming in 1080p. What are your opinions on 1660ti, 2060 or 5700? I don't know what refreshrate the monitor is going to have, but if it's not 120hz+, i guess the 2060/5700 would be a bit overkill, right? Or is the CPU going to bottleneck it anyway? What would you recommend in that case? Thanks for your advice!
  4. Hey! So i just got an i7 4790 for (almost) free (had to buy the man a beer ^^). Unfortunately i don't know too much about buying used mainboards, and what chipsets are a good choice for the 4790, or if that even matters at all, as long as the socket fits, since it's not overclockable anyway. New parts are basically not availible and i feel like there are better options. Anyway, here's a choice of what i could get: https://geizhals.eu/?cat=mbp4_1150 But the used market doesn't leave that much choice either, yet i think the boards are a lot better suited. I'm from germany, so the closest i can get to craigslist is "ebay kleinanzeigen" ( https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-lga-1150-mainboard/k0 , basically all the boards i could find). Do you have any recommendations for chipset etc. and what to look out for in general? Thanks in advance for your advice! PS.: websites are in german only unless they get automatically translated, sorry for that. Yet you should still be able to make out the mobos' names;)
  5. should have thought about this earlier... i will try that as soon as possible, thanks!
  6. Hello, i've run in to the following problem: my pc, which ran without any problems up until now, wont post anymore after i removed & reinstalled the gpu to install an nvme ssd (of course while i was grounded and the pc was unplugged). Now when i try to press the power button, the rgb lighting starts glowing and the fans ramp up to what sounds like max speed, but it doesn't post, the monitor just stays on standby mode. The only hint i've got of what's going on is the "cpu" light on my motherboard that's constantly on, according to the manuel, that either means it can't detect the cpu or it's defective. Another reason why i think the cpu is the culprit here, is that the fans normally speed up for a short time when turning the pc on, and then slow down again. I thought this might be controlled by the motherboard, and when the cpu "takes over", the fans go to their normal speeds, so maybe it's stuck right where the cpu is supposed to "take over", and that's why the fans don't slow down? That could be utter nonsens though, pease don't be too harsh on me, i'm not a hardware technician ;). So i tried reinstalling the cpu, running the pc with only one ram stick in dimma2 and resetting the bios, but none of these worked. I also treid booting it withot the gpu. Since i'm running a ryzen cpu, it of course wont post without a gpu, but it should boot normaly, right? But the fans stayed at max speed again, so i guess the problem isn't the gpu. Or is there a possibility that it is, and the motherboard shows a wrong error code? With a little bit of luck, i can test it in another system tomorrow. So do you see any possibility to fix this without sending back the cpu (+ motherboard?)? That's my hardware: Ryzen 7 3700X MSI gaming pro carbon wifi (x570 chipset) bequiet dark rock pro 4 G skill ripjaws V 3200mhz bequiet straight power 11 750w asus rog strix 2080 advanced 250gb samsung 970 evo ssd 2tb seagate barracuda hdd thanks in advance for your help!
  7. That, of course, is true, yet i don't expect a big performance gain over the 2080, and a theoretical 2080 super should stomp the vii i'm in germany. to why the card is probably that expensive right now: there's a ton of hardware retailers, and those who are usually cheapest don't have it in stock currently, so that could be an explanation. I never understood how different shops would sell the exact same produkt for up to 100€ more than others...
  8. I assume by vii you mean the Radeon? I'm going to primariliy use the system for gaming (in QHD), so i'm not going to need the extra 8 GB of memory. Also, to my understanding, the 2080 delivers just a tiny bit more performance, and the cooling options don't really convince me (if i overlooked something, please correct me). Plus, i'd have to pay prety much the same as for the Zotac 2080. Also, i will probably wait for the "super" launch since i'm allready waiting for the ryzen 3000 launch, yet i think that there's still going to be a noticable difference in price. And yes, if the super cards are as great as they sound from all those rumors, i will most likely get one of those, if the price is ok... I mean, the cooling designs probably wont change that much, so i can most likely use info about the current cards for the new ones, right? Or do you think it would be better to get one of the "old" rtx cards, when they drop in price? Last but not least, thanks for the card recomendation. At the moment though, this card is even more expensive than the strix, for 880€ at best... maybe it will drop in price, then i will definitely take it into consideration.
  9. Hello y'all, so, i'm planning on building a new rig. For graphics, i've decided that i want an rtx 2080, but i don't know which exact model yet. Currently, i'm trying to figure out wether to buy an ROG Srix or the Zotac Amp Extreme. The Amp Extreme is currently about 700€, while the Strix is about 800€. Why am i even thinking about spending 100€ extra for the Strix? Well, first of all, i like the design better, and second, i read reviews that the Amp Extreme, despite having a pretty solid looking cooler, hits 80°C without any overclocking. Also, it seems to have relatively high noise levels. Does anyone have any experience with those card? Thanks in advance for any advice Hillarius
  10. So, i bought a new monitor. Everything is well so far, but i recently discovered some kind of half-dead/-stuck pixel, which allways lights up green. After closer examination, i saw that the rest of the pixel is actually working fine, but only the green part is not getting covered up. Is there any possibility to fix that? I tried "massaging" the screen, but that didn't really help. I wont get a new monitor anyway, the green spot is so small, i can barely even see it, yet knowing it exists kind of bothers me... thanks in advance :) PS.: It's a VA panel, if that makes any difference
  11. Thanks, can you recommend certain reviewers?
  12. Do you have experience with high refresh rate VA panels? If you do, how much do you notice the blur that is due to the response times? Also, is there a place i could look up the "independently" measured response times? I would also prefer VAs, but i'm also playing faster games like Overwatch every now and then, so i really want to avoid a blurry image.
  13. Okay, so as far as i understand now, IPS would generally be better then VA, except for contrast and blacks? In how far does one really perceive the response times? Problem for me is, i don't have a nearby hardware store, at least not to my knowledge (of course there are a few tech stores, but none that has that much comparable stuff, maybe i'm just to dumb to find one).
  14. So i opened a discussion earlier about the acer Nitro VG0 VG271UP and how it would meet my expectations. Though after a bit of research, i now found another competitor for the spot in my setup: the msi optix MAG271CQR at 1440p 144hz. It is a VA panel, so it should give me great colours (right?), yet, as far as i know, VAs are known for rather blurry images when gaming because of slower pixel response times. So my question is: Is it good for gaming? Or does the image simply get to blurry? If not, i would prefer it because of better colours and the curved display. Thanks in advance!
