  1. Budget (including currency): Around £800 for the time Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming at 1440p on new titles with streaming in mind too 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): I am in dire need of a CPU upgrade so along with it I want to redo a lot of my PC. I made a part list of what I thought would be good. I already have the GPU, both memory types and RAM, just want to know if this is a decent build or if not what should be changed. I know a decent amount about computers and I'm confident enough to build it myself and I will most likely be overclocking my CPU to around 5Ghz if I can get it going. Somethings I don't really know that well is about cases and fans and what are best and what extra fans I need to buy for a case(if any), along with limited knowledge of AMD, that's why I am opted for Intel along with the ease of Intel. As a side note I may upgrade to a 30 Series GPU at some point too, just not straight away, and that is partly why my PSU is quite high Wattage. Advice would be appriciated.

  2. I am in the process of upgrading my pc, right now I have a 1050ti and this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GA-H110M-S2H-Ultra-Durable-Motherboards/dp/B01649KMZS as my motherboard. Eventually I will be buying a new MB as this one does not support the CPU i want to upgrade to, however the first thing I will be upgrading is my GPU into a 2060S https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07V48X1ZQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1 I have looked it up and it seems like it will just fit into it without any struggle but I just wanted a 2nd opinion to double check. I have this case if it is relevant https://www.amazon.co.uk/CiT-Vantage-Gaming-Audio-Reader/dp/B0071KZNUY which I will also be changing just not at this immidiate moment, unless I have to of course change this or my MB first, but I just want to change GPU first and then the rest bit by bit as the GPU is the obvious immidiate performance booster.
  3. Not a good idea because things will go down in price or you mean it'll be worth getting newer things?
  4. Budget (including currency): ~£500 a month Country: UK Right now my pc consists of :Intel Pentium G4560, 1050Ti, 16Gbs ram, 1Tb Samsung Evo 860 SSD. Its an old pc and I finally have money to make worthwhile upgrades(recently got more ram and a ssd) But now I want to upgrade it more, with a new gpu and cpu but I am not entirely sure which I should do first. My idea for upgrades was a 2070 for a new gpu, and then an i7 9700k for a new CPU, both would set me back about £500, the cpu isn't that much but I'd be upgrading to a new motherboard and better cooler for it. I mainly play games such as Overwatch, Dead by Daylight, Apex, Hunt showdown and a few other games inbetween. However I also want to stream more often and as it is right now, when I stream I use Nvenc, since my cpu is not that good, but even then it is not the best. So would you recomend upgrading CPU first so I can change my stream to x264 and all the other usefulness of a better cpu, or would a better GPU be more benefical first, to boost most games performance and I could just continue to stream with Nvenc till I upgrade cpu after.
  5. You mean like cloning it over? I was going to do that but where I looked it said I couldn't only do the OS so I'd have to move everything and I have a lot of misc files that would just be a chore to move back to my hdd since I wouldn't need them on the ssd. I got a samsung 860 evo. 500gb
  6. So I just got a new SSD, and I plan on installing windows fresh on it, but I was wondering that if I did this and then just replugged in my HDD after I have installed it and set the SSD as a boot drive, my Hdd would still have all my previous data on it and work fine right? And if I wanted to move anything, say some games, from my hdd to the sdd it should be simple?
  7. Sorry my bad I didn't realise, its this https://spotonpccases.co.uk/product/cit-vantage-blue-midi-mesh-gaming-case-black-interior-4-fans-3-blue-led-card-reader-no-psu/
  8. I am looking to upgrade my processor soon and to do so I have to buy a new motherboard, I will be buying the Z390 UD (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07HKPK9C4/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1) and just wanted to ask for a double check to make sure it would fit in my case, I can't find the dimensions of my case anywhere, even where its sold (https://spotonpccases.co.uk/product/cit-vantage-blue-midi-mesh-gaming-case-black-interior-4-fans-3-blue-led-card-reader-no-psu/) so was hoping to see if anyone could tell if it would fit or just knew already. On a side note, would this cooler fit on top of the new motherboard in this case? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0068OI7T8/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_3?smid=AUWMZRMCN1SVB&psc=1
  9. I have the gigabyte GA-H110M-S2H motherboard and was wondering if I can use this ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07VXCFNVS?pf_rd_r=75ZRTM0PQT29V4ZVE3VA&pf_rd_p=e632fea2-678f-4848-9a97-bcecda59cb4e ) with it? If not, could you suggest something I can have, or do I just need to get a new motherboard?
  10. @Jurrunio It is cl16, but I could pick up 2 sets of it, so 4x8 and have 32gbs of it, for only £40. Worth it or nah?
  11. So I watched the old video on ram speeds and was curious to know if that is still accurate or if anything has changed with ram speeds since that video, I will link it for reference .Anyway, I found 2666MHz ram for sale, 2x8 sticks for a insane price of £20, I should just get it right? That is a crazy price, my current ram is 2400MHz however, so that means it will also go down to 2400MHz, but surely have 24GB 2400Mhz is better than 16Gb 2666Mhz?
  12. Yeah I do for sure, if I really needed too I could get rid of some games that I don't play as often.
  13. Hello, soon I will getting my paycheck and I will have around £300 left over that I can spend on my pc. I am just unsure what is best to upgrade first. My main game rn that I play is OverWatch, but I will probably be playing games like Cod and similar fps in the future. At the moment I have 8Gbs of ram(unsure of the speed), I have an Intel Pentium g4560 and a 1050ti. I would imagine the most important thing to upgrade would be my processor, but any advice on better things would be really useful or if I should just wait even longer to spend more money on even better upgrades would be a better option, thank you in advcance
  14. I found a really cheap but decent 60Hz monitor that I want to buy as a secondary monitor. My monitor I have right now is 60hz and using a hdmi cable. The new monitor is also 60hz,but only has Dvi and Vga cable support(I will add a picture from the seller just incase they are not what I think) I would just like some people to help me know if I can use a second monitor with one of use inputs and which cable I should choose. I have a 1050ti if that helps
