  1. Which graphics card will be better for the next 4-5 years? The RX 580 8gig/Rx 590 or GTX 1650 Super/GTX 1660?(I live in India, where I am getting all these cards for about the same price point.(anything more than these is out of my budget)
  2. Taran, Alex, Dennis, James and Anthony to name a few.(in no particular order)
  3. It will be a BIG bottleneck. https://pc-builds.com/calculator/Core_i5-4400E/Radeon_RX_5700_XT/0zi14jf2/16/
  4. NIce! I am sure you will enjoy it
  5. Unless you plan on playing with ultra high settings, you probably don't need a 2080 TI. You will be fine for some medium (in some cases even high) setting gaming with an RX 5700 or even a 2070 Super. https://www.gpucheck.com/compare/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-vs-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2070-super/amd-ryzen-7-2700-vs-amd-ryzen-7-2700/ It is worth noting that the 2070 Super is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. So, you might have to get a new one(check pcpartpicker to see how much you need) In terms of memory, the RTX 2070 Super's 8 GB VRAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Even 4K gaming is joyous on this card , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
  6. @Mateyyy Both are pretty expensive where I live in their own ways. Here the Z490 board and the 3300x (anything above a 3200g) are pretty expensive, any would nearly eat away all my Budget .Also,can't find any 10th gen boards or processors right now and as mentioned in my original post, I will never go AMD(that is until Intel shuts down or a new competitor appears) Even the cheapest SSD's cost a pretty penny here.( A 1TB SSD costs about 10,000 INR, a 2TB HDD costs about 4000 INR.)
  7. @TofuHarotoBoth are pretty expensive where I live in their own ways. Here the Z490 board and the 3300x (anything above a 3200g) are pretty expensive, any would nearly eat away all my Budget (also,can't find any 10th gen boards or processors right now, and wont go AMD anyway due to some personal experience with their processors)
  8. The 1650 was not good at all, but the 1650 SUPER is on par with 1060 6gb, and " is better than 1650 by 50%)-Nvidia
  9. Budget (including currency): About 60000-65000 INR Country: India Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mostly gaming, light editing Other details : Already have Monitor and other peripherals. Refresh Rate is 60Hz(Dont judge), Resolution 1920x1080. Budget is just for the CPU. I am deciding to make a new pc and have the following parts in mind, but I am not able to decide what would be suited best for my needs. I am planning to use the new pc for the next 5-6 years, and can't and won't overclock. Just one thing- before you go to PcPartPicker, I would like to point that the prices are not same there and elsewhere in India. Parts/ Requirements list- CPU-i3-9100f or i5-9400f? Graphics- GTX 1650 Super or Gtx 1660? (or 4gigs RX 570/580)? HDD -2TB 7400 RPM M.2 Nvme Drive- For OS install only (240-256 gigs) Motherboard- Asrock Phantom Gaming 4 ATX or Asus ROG B365-F Strix Gaming PSU- 450w-500w ( No need for any 80+ brone/silver certification, just should be from a reputable brand) Case- Corsair Carbide Spec 01 (or any case with a window). Ram- 16GB (8GBx2) (should be with atleast a heatsink, RGB/Non-RGB does not matter, if budget does not allow recommend any 8GB one, will upgrade later to 16GB). Don't blame me for not going AMD way, have had some pretty bad experiences with it. (Call me a fanboy if you want, but that experience made me promise myself not to EVER go AMD)
  10. Most of the times, these inflated prices are present in sites like ebay and Amazon. I myself asked the owner of the shop how could he sell the parts at such cheap rates. He said due to the online system of shopping for pc parts, their shops have directly taken a hit in the form of less sales. So he had to come up with offers to lure their customers back. Also, the price quoted on the boxes is much higher than what they can actually sell them for in order to have a positive balance. So in this way they also don't run into losses, while providing the things at lower costs. P.S- This isn't the same shop I bought from, but still it's the pricelist from a well known vendor in New Delhi,India. Just compare the prices. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.costtocost.in/list/pricelist.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjb2Oq-9-7pAhX3yTgGHcDOBEsQFjAAegQICBAB&usg=AOvVaw32pVfb2pTgc_3qN_1xrnrz
  11. Buy what @Aereldor suggested. 2 suggestions from my side are- You can get a different case if you want, you will get a corsair carbide spec 01 for about 300 less from Amazon and 1000 less from local dealer. 2. ALWAYS buy from local vendor if you can. This will not only help with warranty andif you want to get some part replaced, but also the vendor offers parts a lot cheaper. The i3-9100f can be found at the local vendor for about 4000, whereas it will cost about 7000-8000 from Amazon(bought the exact same Processor myself a week back). Also, if you order from newegg or any other online site, it will be very Difficult to get the product repaired or replaced under warranty. P.S- leave the SSD out from the suggested build. Instead, buy cheaper WD Nvme drive (250 gig for OS install) and a 1tb 7200rpm drive. Not only will it offer higher storage, but will also most proabaly come at a cheaper price.
  12. Your list is good, but maybe(just maybe) he could go with a GTX 1650 Super (₹12000 from local vendor). Thay way, he can save about ₹2000 on his build, and that would fit exactly in his budget. P.S- I have seen a lot of benchmarks and seen that in almost all the cases, the GTX 1650 Super Out performed the RX 570
  13. That is exactly the point I am trying to make. These old Intel processors are just underrated nowadays for gaming(BTW mine has just 2 cores)
  14. I can run far cry 5 at 1080p (medium-high settings) with my i3-2120(even though it sucks a bit). It's really surprising how much gaming these old Intel processors had in them considering their age now. (the one I Have is almost 7-years old lol.)
  15. "Intel discontinues 8th Gen Core Coffee Lake 8xxx series processors" "They had a good run, and it's time to let them go. Intel will be discontinuing (EOL) some Coffee Lake 8xxx in the Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 ranges. Intel shares this information in a product notification.Orders are Non-Cancelable and Non-Returnable After December 18, 2020 and the Last Product Discontinuance Shipment Date will be June 4, 2021." Intel's decision to discontinue its 8th-generation CPUs is hardly surprising. By now, the 9th-generation chips have long-replaced the Coffee Lake parts, and it's no doubt potential buyers will opt for its newly-launched 10th-generation Comet Lake-S processors. Even though Intel says it has discontinued making the 8th gen chips, one can basically find nearly no difference in the 8th and the 9th gen chips. Same sockets, same wattage, same cores, same threads. The 9th gen is nearly an exact copy of the 8th Gen. For example, let's take two i3's from these generations and compare them. The 9100f and 8100f are nearly the same, with the only difference being a slightly higher memory bandwidth support (38.4 GBps vs 37.5 GBps) https://versus.com/en/intel-core-i3-8100f-vs-intel-core-i3-9100f. If you want to buy a 8th gen processor (for any reasons) and now are rethinking your decision based on this news, what you can do is basically find an equivalent processor from the 9th generation.(they even cost the same). Still if you have the budget, you should probably go for 10th gen Intel(if you want to only go the Intel way BTW), as the 11th gen processors will also support the LGA1200 socket. BUT if you were thinking of buying a 8th gen XEON, then no need to panic. Intel isn’t yet calling time on its Coffee Lake-based Xeon processors, which are aimed at high-performance data centre workloads. P.S- Intel has also announced that it will stop selling the Core i9-9900K and Core i9-9900KS in the special edition dodecahedron packaging. Also, as you start going up the hierarchy, (i3,i5,i7) the differences become a little bit more noticable, with one of the greatest exceptions to my "nearly same rant" being the 9700K which abandons hyperthreading.(but still the 9th gen is better in my opinion, because the diffference in prices is very little) News Source- Guru3D.com https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/intel-discontinues-8th-gen-core-coffee-lake-8xxx-series-processors.html
