  1. Wow, that is an amazing site, thanks bunches man. It helped me chose a monitor. Went for the LG 27UK600-W
  2. Hello, I need a bit of help. The local PC dealer has these monitors; 27 LG 27UD69-W 27 LG 27UK600-W 27 LG 27UK670-B 27 LG 27UL500-W 4К 27 LG 27UL550-W 4K 27 LG 27UL600-W 4K 27 LG 27UL650-W And I honest to god can't figure out what the difference is, other than the price. I've looked at them on LG's main websites, I tried Google. But googling those names almost always gives me a review for some other monitor. So...Can any one help me pick one?
  3. Haha, well I'm asking because that's what my local retailer gave me. They have all of those variants of the S36 , all at different prices, the WATER /BLACKOUT one is the cheapest at 140 euros, and the S36 PRYSMA+ is the most expensive at 227 euro. So I got curious what's the difference.
  4. Guys, what's the difference between the FD CELSIUS S36 WATER /BLACKOUT FD CELSIUS+ S36 DYNAMIC FD CELSIUS+ S36 PRYSMA According to the Tier list, S36 is good, and all the reviews just say S36; but the S36 PRYSMA+ is nearly 2 times more expensive than the S36 WATER /BLACKOUT So what's the difference? Google always shows me the S36 BLACKOUT even when I specifically google for the PRYSMA+
  5. Oh... Aw. Sad. A Retailer here I liked actually has the Lighting Z listed with a 1575 clock. I guess either they got confused too, or are trying to be all shady about it. Well thanks for clearing that up! I kinda want the EVGA too, but the Lighting was going to be easier to obtain. No one has EVGA on stock right now. Thanks again!
  6. Hello, I am trying to pick an RTX 2080-ti 11gb card. As per the card tier list, I wanted to get the; https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-RTX-2080-Ti-Lightning-Z But, if you look at that page, it claims the boost clock is 1770 MHz. Yet every local retailer here in my city ((Sofia, bulgaria)) Lists the Ti Lighting Z 11gb as having 1575 MHz core boost clock. Plus I saw several reviews for the Ti Lighting Z 11gb same card in all reviews but claiming 2 different price points. One at 3k, and one at 1k. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! I plan to overclock it. PS: Also, any thoughts on MSI 11gb Lighting Z vs EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card. In terms of overclocking.
  7. Hello there LTT Forums. VFX artist from Ubisoft, in need to Next-Genify PC, No idea what I'm doing. Every friend told me something different. Came here to ask a thousand people for a unified conclusion instead. Oh dear. 1. Budget & Location. Hovering around 3200 Euros -+ ((For the computer itself)), Bulgaria. 2. Aim. Researching computer graphics at home; Houdini, Neural-Networks, 3d scanning, RTX ON, Minecraft. 3. Monitors. I have 2 1080p ones now, but I want to spice it up a notch to one of those utlra wide curvy ones...Every time I see them I go, man; Future. Also a VR headset. I need to look into that stuff too. ((I am not counting these towards the price I listed.)) 4. Peripherals. Considering that I'm using a keyboard so old it has a PS/2 connector, I will probably need a new one. I like the glory ones. I am using Windows 7 now. I plan to upgrade to either Win 10, or Linux. Possibly Linux. If I am gonna spend a lot of money on a fast computer, might as well also get Linux. I have a few friends who use Linux so I am set on the "People to ask dumb Linux questions." quality of life improvements. 5. But why though. Well for starters; RTX ON, I can't take it anymore. Essentially I want to buy a 2080 Ti and add a computer around it. The last time I went down this rabbit hole was 6 years ago, after which I was so happy to be done with it that I haven't kept up to date with anything since, and I really should have. Trying to get back up to date on things has been one steep hill to climb. My Current PC is a; CPU : Core i7-4790K ((Overclocked though the years)) CPU cooler : NH-D9L GPU : 970 GTX ((Overclocked though the years)) MOBO : Fatal1ty Z87 Killer RAM : A rich assortment of various sticks that my system reports as totaling 32 gb They are mostly DDR3 too. Storage : 120Gb SSD Samsung ((Bought without considering the read/write speeds)) 2tb HDD WesternDigital WD20EFRX ((Bought without considering the read/write speeds)) PSU : Fortron FSP700-50ARN 88+ I am curious of I can reuse anything. But also probably not, it's been running nearly 24/7 for the past 6 years. In fact, all of it has. Without fault. I am really happy about how it held up across the years. If it wasn't for Nvidia's RTX stuff, I probably wouldn't have started upgrading yet. But since I am, let's go bat shit crazy with it. ((Within limits)) Here's where and what I am at now as far as my research and confusing friends go; PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core Processor $749.00 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE EATX AM4 Motherboard $649.99 @ B&H Memory G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory $186.99 @ Newegg Video Card MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card $1233.99 @ B&H Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $2819.97 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-02-29 20:21 EST-0500 But I also have many questions. Should I buy the Ryzen 9 3950X, OR, Keep my i-7 if it won't bottle neck the GPU that much, and save up for a Threadripper (( maybe 3990X?)) My motherboard needs are lots of fast storage and lots of ram ((I have listed only 32gb on the part picker page, but I plan to slowly buy more after I do this initial investment)), This branches into two questions. RDIMM or LRDIMM or UDIMM ?... I googled it, I read about it, and I still don't get it. RDIMM/LRDIMM are octachannel and that's good, but UDIMM is faster? Which one do I need on my motherboard for ram. ... And what Ram do I need too for that matter. Ram has speed. I didn't know that. What speed do I need? Speaking of storage, what are good suggestions? Half of my friends say PCI-e SSDs, others say M.2s and I am confused. What should I get? What about Intel Optanes? I watched the LTT video on it, but would my line of work benefit from something like that? Can I save money by opting out of nonsense? A lot of these motherboards have these crazy designs going on. I don't care about design. Hence the title. I want it fat, ugly and fast Wait for the 30xx family of GPUs? There are rumors that we'll see Nvidia's next generation mid this year. Should I buy a 2080 -ti now, or hold off on that? Can I buy a 2080 -ti now and sell it an hour before the 30xx is announced? I don't really care about a Case. I am using whatever a friend had in his basement that one time. But if you have any suggestions, I am open to said suggestions. I need to consider cooling more seriously this time. I need something that can keep this working good at full load even during our typical 32C(89.6F) Summers. This build struggles with that and I have every door and hatch on the case open. I also want it quiet. Or as quiet as possible. Also any thoughts on entirely putting the computer in another room for the best quiet possible? That's it for now. I want to make this post to start gathering conflicting opinions on here too. While though my current PC build kept me afloat all this time, there are a lot of little things I missed, like properly matching my ram speeds, getting a good speedy storage, little things that ended up eating me a lot of time in the end. I want to use this new build for at least the next 5-6 years again, until the next "insert_word_here ON" thing shows up. Well, thanks a lot for the time reading this, and thanks any time you might spent on writing a reply too. It is greatly appreciated. PS: I will of course, as the tradition goes, "Deliver." once it's all said and done an the parts are at my doorstep. Edit PS: Here's Louis CK saying "It's not enough fast enough." https://youtu.be/WrahQpIWD08?t=62 I always hear that in my head when thinking about this topic....
