  1. I’m considering buying a 4K tv for gaming with a 5700 xt and ryzen 5 3600, but I wanted to ask someone who has experience with image sharpening and gpu scaling on a 5700 xt; what I’m essentially referring to is this. Apparently, if I were to overclock my graphics card, use gpu scaling and use image sharpening I should be able to get 2080 Ti like performance? This just seems too good to be true. I’ve had my gpu for a few months now and I’m only finding out about this now. I’m aware that this isn’t as good as 4K, but as long as it looks pretty close I’m fine with it. All I want is to game on a 65 inch 4k tv screen. Is anyone willing to try/has tried this for themselves? How does it look? How is performance? I don’t really have a 4k screen (yet) to test this on, so I was hoping to get some insight on whether or not I should be looking forward to this. Also, it baffles me that no one talks about this; to me, this is huge news. Being able to game at 4k 60 fps is normally unimaginable on a 5700 xt. Is there anything else major like this that I don’t know that could help improve performance? Thanks.
  2. Thank you, you’ve been very helpful.
  3. The tv is 60 Hz. I’d like to know: do you always play on your tv or have you played or used to play on a low latency monitor before? Is the input lag noticeable at all or do you not even think about it (as it should be). Also, do you play on a controller or keyboard and mouse? To me, input lag on a controller is harder to notice as compared to a keyboard and mouse.
  4. I’m considering buying a 65 inch 4K tv for my pc rather than a monitor, as I’ll be able to watch movies and YouTube on it as well. The tv I want to buy is the Samsung ru7100, which apparently has 12.9 ms of input lag based on a quick google search. Is 12.9 ms ok for pc gaming? I don’t play competitive games so I don’t need absolutely zero input lag per se, but is it going to be noticeable and hinder the gaming experience regardless? I also play on keyboard and mouse, and I know for a fact that input lag is much more noticeable on a keyboard and mouse than a controller. I’d love to get some insight from someone in a similar situation. Thanks.
  5. What are your thoughts on this? It isn’t exactly a dlss equivalent, but it effectively does what dlss does; improves performance without much visual impact.
  6. Isn’t there something called fidelity Fx or something?
  7. I’ve been considering getting a 65 inch 4K tv (with 10 ms latency, let me know if that’s too much for pc gaming) that’s being sold at a very good price where I live. The problem with this is that my current system has an rx 5700 xt and ryzen 5 3600; will I be able to run games at a constant 60 fps? My graphics card is also overclockable so that should help with fps a little bit as well. If I were to play games on a high preset with demanding settings such as shadows or volumetric fog on medium, should I be able to run games at a constant 60 fps? I’d like to hear from people that have an rx 5700 xt and play on 4K. How do games run generally for you? Furthermore, I heard that amd has its own thing that’s similar to dlss where you can upscale 1440p to 4K. Does it work with all games or only supported titles? Thank you.
  8. I’ve build a new gaming pc and was looking for a monitor to go with it. I’ve got a 5700xt and a ryzen 5 3600. Sadly living in a third world country, there’s very little choice here and the only decent ones I could afford were: Dell s2719dgf 27inch 1440p 155hz https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-27-gaming-monitor-s2719dgf/apd/210-arcj/monitors-monitor-accessories ViewSonic XG2405 24″ 144Hz https://www.viewsonic.com/pk/products/lcd/XG2405.php I’m not into competitive games at all, and only plan to play single player games. What I care most about is how the game looks. So I guess my question is, what would look prettier, a 1080p IPS display or a 1440p TN.
  9. Here's my parts: Radeon rx 5700 xt 500 gb WD blue 8x2 3600 MHz ram msi b450 tomahawk max ryzen 5 3600 Thermaltake Smart RGB 600W PSU SPR-0600NHSAW I have a minor selection of PC cases to choose from. Which of these are compatible with my build, which have good thermals and which are good for a first time builder? Please don't redirect me to a tier list or something, because these are the only options I have where I live(that aren't randomass companies like reddragon or raidmax). Here's all my options: Thermaltake Versa N26 Mid Tower Cooler Master Masterbox MB501L Gigabyte C200G ATX Mid Tower Corsair Carbide Spec 04 Mid Tower ATX Thermaltake V200 TG Versa RGB Cooler Master MasterBox NR600 Thermaltake Versa J24 Tempered Glass RGB Edition Thermaltake J25 TG Versa RGB Thermaltake H200 TG RGB Cooler Master Masterbox MB500 Cooler Master Masterbox MB511 RGB Cooler Master Masterbox MB520 Corsair Carbide Spec Delta Mid Tower ATX Thermaltake Level 20 MT Argb Corsair Carbide 275R Mid Tower ATX Gigabyte AC300W ATX Mid Tower Corsair Carbide 275R White Mid Tower ATX Thermaltake Commander C35 TG Argb Thermaltake Commander C32 TG Argb Corsair Carbide Spec 05 Mid Tower ATX Thermaltake H550 TG ARGB Bonus list (These are cases out of my budget, but let me know if anything here is worth the moola) Thermaltake View 71 Tempered Glass Edition Cooler Master Mastercase H500 Mesh Corsair 570X Crystal RGB ATX Mid Towe The further down the list you go, the more expensive it gets. There's more cases, but these are the ones that have brand names I recognize. If raidmax and redragon make good quality cases do let me know so I can add them to the list. Also sorry for the long list, it's just that I'm a bit overwhelmed right now. This is my first time building a PC. For the most part, I don't care too much about looks, I see them as a bonus. I would love some help on deciding the best case: The case with the best airflow, compatible with my parts, good for cable management, good for a first time builder, has good dust collection etc. Whatever makes a case I good. I know this is a lot, but I would appreciate any help I get. Thank you.
  10. I like those odds. Thanks for the help.
  11. Wow, thanks for the detailed response. Damn, I wish I knew this earlier. Truth is, I'm currently living in a third world country. My brother is coming this Sunday from Canada with all the parts I listed earlier. I just figured that I could buy the psu from here, without realising it's importance. The only 2 decent psu's I could find (online) are the ones I sent you. I guess I'll just have to risk the life of my components. As for efficiency, I'm not really too worried about that. How much electricity I use isn't a problem for me, it's just my shiny brand-new parts I care about.
  12. These are the only 2 psu's in my area. Will using these put my components at risk? Is it worth it to buy one of the psu's in your list?
  13. Or a Thermaltake Smart RGB 500W Power Supply SPR-0500NHSAW
  14. Is a Thermaltake Smart RGB 600W PSU SPR-0600NHSAW fine?
  15. These are the parts of my build that I bought: MSI b450 tomahawk max Gigabyte rx 5700 xt 8 GB Ryzen 5 3600 2x8 gb 3600 MHz RGB ram (because I'm an epic gamer, deal with it). This will probably need 1000W of power itself due to its epicness. wd blue 500 gb nvme ssd So how much power does this system need? One build I saw uses 600W, while the manual for the gpu says 650W. A quick google search says 550W. I want to be on the safe side here, which power supply should I get? I don't want to waste any extra money buy buying more power than I need, but also don't want the bare minimum. Thanks for the help.
  16. Ok, thank you. One look at the tier list and I have no idea what the hell is going on. This is way too advanced for a dumb boi like me. As for the list, do you think it's absolutely perfect? Because I saw a lot of $1000 dollar build videos on youtube (including Linus' early 2020 buyers guide with a 1000 dollar build), but none of them chose these components. I think this is the absolute best you can get for a 1000 US dollars, but I wanted to post here to see if there's any improvements I can do. If there's anything I can do to make it cheaper(because that is a phat amount of money), or make it better for the same price. The rtx 2070 super can't fit under the budget unfortunately, but yeah I would love to get it. Thanks again.

This is what's been built after hours of research by me and some help. I just wanted to post here again to get the final verdict. If there's any suggestion on how to improve this build, or if there's any ways I could make this cheaper without too much compromise would be great. All prices are in canadian dollars. Thank you.
  18. That is an amazing deal. The problem is that I can't buy that rightaway. First I'm going to sell my old laptop, which will give me the funds to my new PC. But thank you for the suggestion, I'll look out for those when it's time to buy. I just hope there's a deal as good as that when I'm buying my components lol
  19. Hi, thanks for the help. The psu and SSD upgrade looks good to me, I see you found a cheap nvme ssd. Nice. I'm sorry I didn't specify in my post, but the reason I didn't pick the pulse and the slightly faster ram is because of the shady retailers. I'm not comfortable from ordering from "Mike's computer shop". It has lots of bad reviews. Because of this, I decided to pick the best option from a retailer I'm comfortable buying from. It's just a personal preference. So if I keep my original list but upgrade the ssd and psu, will everything be perfectly compatible? (I just want to be safe). For example, these are the cases front ports: USB 3.0 (x2), Headphone (x1), Microphone (x1), Power, Reset. I've heard that this has to match with the motherboard or something? Also, I'm still unsure if the psu you chose is compatible with the gpu I chose. As for the fans, it looks like the case comes with 4 fans, which is great. I might be overthinking it, but I'm just trying to be as careful as possible. There's just all these little things that you have to look at for compatibility which is really complicated for me. Another example is this warning from pcpartpicker: The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled. Thanks again for the help.
  20. My list (1300-1400 CAD budget, preferebly on the lower end.): https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/vqL76R Yo, I'd love some help in planning my first PC build. I live in canada and all prices are in canadian dollars. I'd just like to know if everything is compatible with each other, and if there's anything else I need. I would also be grateful if there are any suggestions on improvements to this build you guys might have that fit under the budget. I've been researching but I still don't know if this build is fully compatible. For example, The rx 5700 xt needs 8+16 pin connectors on the psu or something of the sort (I'm not sure, don't take my word for it), and I have no idea how to check. I also don't know if everything will even fit into my chosen case. Also, I think the case I chose has 3 fans in the front, but don't you also need a fan at the back end? Will I have to buy an extra fan? Thanks.
