  1. 200 bucks is a good price, i frequent /r/hardwareswap which is pretty big these days and thats about the going price for a 1070/1070ti, and iirc the 2060 is just ahead of the 1070ti in rasterized performance. a 1060 goes for ~120-130 which is also a fine deal
  2. ha i was literally just about to post that lol. heres the link op:
  3. damn i need a friend like yours who keeps offloading his "old" stuff at those kinds of prices
  4. indeed; @Ajmartin2006 if you could upgrade to a 4770k/4790k on your current mobo, would you do that today? this is the kinda situation youll find yourself in the next time you upgrade, in 5 years you probably dont wanna just go from a 10700k to an 11700k; at that point ddr5 will be ubiquitous, hopefully intel will have progressed more than they did over the past 5 years, that sorta thing. not a lot of people are upgrading every generation or two cause it doesnt make a ton of sense. the people who are doing so dont have to worry about whats the best value/sale cause theyre buying all the newest and bestest stuff when it comes out lol
  5. in that case: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $199.99 @ Best Buy Motherboard MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $109.99 @ Amazon Memory Team T-FORCE DARK Z 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory $99.99 @ Newegg Storage Western Digital SN750 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $62.99 @ Amazon Storage Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $54.99 @ Newegg Video Card EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB KO GAMING Video Card $310.00 Case Cougar MX330-G ATX Mid Tower Case $50.99 @ B&H Power Supply EVGA BQ 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply $70.00 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $958.94 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-10-23 01:29 EDT-0400 the 2060 ko should be near 310 bucks when its properly in stock and is super kickass for compute workloads. theres a lot of articles and such about that specific model and its an insane card for the money (at 310 bucks which is where it should be). the stock wraith cooler is fine for a 3600, for anything higher perhaps consider a 20-30 dollar tower cooler like an artic freezer 33/34 or hyper 212
  6. wew, werent vega 56/64s pulling 600w+ transients for single cards? has anyone measured power draw to that kinda detail on ampere like jonnyguru and such did for vega?
  7. a 1650 super with nvidia's nvenc encoder would take basically all of the streaming load off of the cpu at basically no performance cost. although the 2200g aint renowned for spitting out high framerates so you might want a better cpu anyways for valorant/warzone in general
  8. if you can afford it comfortably, that dell is kickass: its gsync compatible so no worries there coming from a gsync-only monitor myself. i really want one lol, its got everything going for it
  9. huh guess thats something to keep in mind lol, glad it worked for ya!
  10. -xt series chips are a waste of money, theyre basically indistinguishable from the cheaper chips aside from very specific overclocking stats. that build you have there is already pretty far over budget from what i can tell. heres what id try for: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $342.04 @ Newegg Singapore Motherboard MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $214.22 @ Newegg Singapore Memory OLOy 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory $194.15 @ Newegg Singapore Storage Western Digital SN750 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $122.46 @ Newegg Singapore Storage Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $109.62 @ Newegg Singapore Video Card Asus GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB DUAL EVO OC Video Card $414.45 @ Newegg Singapore Case Deepcool MATREXX 30 MicroATX Mini Tower Case $117.53 @ Newegg Singapore Power Supply EVGA BQ 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply $155.37 @ Newegg Singapore Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $1669.84 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-10-23 11:52 +08+0800 not really any way to go lower on specs without losing a disproportionate amount of performance. if youre using strictly adobe or davinci resolve then you could try for a cheap i3 intel build which may be adequate, but 6 cores with good memory clocks would be ideal
  11. oh yeah forgot the k55 is a membrane keeb lol, mb. yeah i dunno there
  12. whats the exact model of your psu? thermaltake makes a lot of rgb psus, many of which are not spectacular. for ampere the psu is a very important component for troubleshooting and making sure that your psu is or isnt the problem will help to drastically reduce the number of possible problems
  13. lubing the switches may help. theres a particular brand of switch lubricant that everyone likes but its super expensive, the really hardcore keyboard people here can tell you what the non marked up product is. its a bit obscure and i cant remember how to find it lol
