  1. Oops, my bad. I meant the game developers of course. But you might be right, I didn't take into consideration the fact that despite being "older", the 580 does have a much bigger market share as of now, so I suppose that kind of equalizes the whole "what do we optimize for" thing
  2. Yup, that's why I am a bit hesitant about it. I wouldn't be saving much by going for the 580, but that amount could be going elsewhere, a better case for example
  3. @Darpyface Thank you for your suggestion That board looks alright, I'll do some research on it I am thinking about the 580 (Explained it more in detail below). The 1650 Super though, I just glanced at a review (only one at the moment) and it seems to be outperformed even by the 1060 in quite a few games? It is pretty close to the 580 however I know, not really considering that brand, I put it up on the list as a placeholder, to get the general feel on the overall price of the build. The one you linked seems pretty solid, but it's actually more expensive, about ~37 $US more. My country's pricing is really weird it seems.. @TofuHaroto Thanks for your suggestion, The boards you listed seem nice, I'll definitely do some research on them - the Tomahawk does fall out of my price range though (with the current setup) I did notice that about the 580, based on my limited research so far. But the XT is a newer card after all, I am thinking it could be a tiny bit more future-proof when it comes to optimizations? Usually the older stuff isn't a priority, as far as I know Power consumption wise, I'd be fine with it, not an issue. Price wise though, it would be amazing, I could put that elsewhere; better cooling for ex. That case looks pretty good, I'll consider it. The one I put in my list was kind of a placeholder, mainly just to get an idea for the price. PSU: know it would be overkill, but in this case it's just a placeholder, not really considering that one in particular. I'll check out the ones you mentioned, I am thinking I'd aim for at least 500W, or 550W - just to be sure. I am sorry if I caused any confusion about the drives, I am not intending to use the HDD as my boot drive, the idea is to re-use the SSD from the PC that I am replacing. (A cheapo Kingston A400) @Chris Pratt I did check it out earlier, it's quite a bit cheaper, roughly 70 $US less - I am still somewhat considering it, but I was also thinking, the XT is a newer card after all, it probably gets more attention from the developers, optimization wise? And it's also just a new architecture in general But regardless, thank you for the suggestion @Harlon The 1660 Super is about ~308 $US, compared to the XT, which is ~260 $US - so it falls out of my budget, not to mention the 2060's pricing here. I did some research about it however, it does perform pretty well - better, in fact. But price wise, I can't do it, unless I cut corners somewhere, probably on the CPU side. (My original build plan involved an 1600AF - but it's not being sold anymore) Thank you for your suggestion though
  4. @Jeppes Thanks for your suggestion, seems like a nice build. But unfortunately, at my pricing, it goes over my budget
  5. Budget (including currency): Maximum of 250.000HUF - 860 $US Country: Hungary Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Games such as GTA 5, Battlefield 5, Red Dead Redemption 2, newer Assassins Creed games, 'heavily' modded minecraft, etc. Occasionally I work on cinematics, and I also use Photo mode in games where it's available, therefore I also do some light photo and video editing. (I would also like to jump into 4K for a handful of screenshots, at times - the FPS won't matter there, of course - as that's not my intended resolution to play at) In the far future, I'd like to get into VR gaming as well (after a GPU upgrade) Other details: My goal is to achieve 1080p ~60fps in games, graphically speaking - I don't mind going for lower settings, but I want to stay at / above medium if possible - for the next 2-3 years or so. Other notes: My budget / build does not include / need - a mouse, keyboard, etc. As I will be re-using my current things (including an SSD as my boot drive) PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $174.99 @ Amazon Motherboard Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $72.99 @ Best Buy Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory $68.98 @ Amazon Storage Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $45.98 @ Amazon Video Card Sapphire Radeon RX 5500 XT 8 GB PULSE Video Card $209.99 @ Amazon Case SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply Chieftec 700 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply $155.00 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $727.93 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-08-05 15:41 EDT-0400 The prices on PCpartpicker differ quite a bit from the shop(s) that I am planning to get the parts from, for me - this build would cost 832 $US (242.000HUF) Additional notes, regarding the following parts: Motherboard: I would very much* prefer an ATX form factor instead if possible, but it isn't necessary, but I can only seem to find ones that cost a lot more, with the current setup, it goes over my budget* **edited Overclocking wise, I don't plan on doing any OCing really, especially not with a stock cooler (Which I will upgrade in the future) Video card: I did some research prior to making this post, but I can't figure out if the card in question is worth it. My plan is to upgrade this system (hopefully only GPU wise) in the next few years, and so I have been thinking about the VRAM size, 8GB seems a bit overkill, however - with this card, it's either 4GB or 8GB. The 4GB variant would be much much better, price wise - but I feel like 6GB is going to be the minimum requirement for games, soon enough. (Additionally, I have no preference regarding Nvidia vs AMD) Case: The case on the list is not the one I put in my list originally (seems unavailable on PCpartpicker), mine is the non-RGB variant (SPC Signum SG1 TG) costing 52 $US. PSU: Haven't done much research about the unit, I only put it on the list to get a general feel on the overall price of the build. Regarding the CPU, RAM, and Storage - I am confident about those choices in particular, and I'd like to stick to them. But I am still open to any suggestions of course Thanks in advance
  6. I see, thanks for the detailed explanation It's unlikely that I will ever need the max output of the Wi-Fi, but still this is good to know, again this is news for me ? I'll definitely do some research about this topic - I do have one question though, although I may have misunderstood something - you said that CPU processing is limited (obviously) but does this mean that if I were to disable the Wi-Fi part of the router via a physical or software button/option, I get some "extra" processing that will be free-to use for the 'wired' part? That would also explain why such an option exists in the first place
  7. Oh, I see Well, I learned something new today Thank you
  8. The modem that the ISP supplies supports Gigabit, so I can simply use it as is - going straight into my PC, no router inbetween - it just means I won't have wifi until I get a new router, I'd rather not bottleneck my speeds that much, until then. (Hope that makes sense)
  9. Yup, I don't know how I could forget the specs sheet, now I feel dumb But then how/or why are they advertising it as a 300mbps? Am I missing something here?
  10. My PC does, the router does not, as the person above just said - I looked it up, it is 10/100 on all ports I totally forgot that the specs sheet shows that
  11. Hello guys! I am about to switch my ISP to a new one, my new theoretical internet speed will be 1Gbps, however - the wifi router I am using is rated for 300Mbps, my question is: Will this affect the internet speed that's going back into my PC (via ethernet)? The router is a: TP-Link WR841N I know that the Wi-Fi speed itself is going to be maxed at 300. I was trying to find answers on google, but most people just talk about the wifi speed itself, that's not what I am interested in, I would like to know if entering the router itself causes any bottlenecks, in which case - I will hook up the ethernet to my PC directly, for the time being. Thanks in advance!
