  1. I recently bought an Acer workstation (i5 10400k and 12 gigs of RAM for 500 CAD!) and am upgrading it with an SSD and GPU. I have already settled on a ZOTAC Twin Fan 1660 Super, which according to my research is the best budget and small form factor 1080p card. The problem is that I don’t have a drive bay for my SSD, as the lone bay is being taken up by my HDD. I do have an M.2 expansion slot, but it is right below the PCIE 16 slot. Being a cheapskate, I don’t want to go full SSD, and opt for a 500GB while keeping my 1TB HDD. Do the thermals work out for having one stock cpu cooler that came with the workstation and having something like a Crucial P5 (40 degrees Celsius average, 70 degrees when throttled, but I’m barely going to do that) underneath the aforementioned GPU? I don’t think I can fit a heat sink in, but I really want to try and shove it in somewhere. If you guys could please give me some specs with and without a heat sink, hat would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Alright alright alright alright, Just got a new workstation PC, and am looking to upgrade from on-board graphics to dedicated. I have a core i5 10400, and 12 gigs of ram. Just decided on the 1660 super, and am now looking for best after market config. I don’t use my system just for gaming, I frequently use Photoshop and I am a coder, so I lean more towards mixed workflow than simply gaming. Monitor is 1080p 75hz. Max 250 CAD. Any help would be greatly appreciated. also, any suggestions on ssds? Just looking for 128gb to 256gb, nothing major. Looking to spend 100 to 150 CAD.
  3. I just looked at some CPU Benchmark, and yeah. I’m not gonna be clocking that much, and it’s out of my price range.
  4. Yeah, this is definitely a multi tasking rig. Thanks for clearing stuff up!
  5. Oh yeah, absolutely. I do a lot more than game, as I plan to get into engineering once I get to college. 8 gigs of ram is my goal right now. Thanks for the input!
  6. No, I do not. But I have decided that’s the one I’m using, as it’s dirt cheap where I live. Only 210$ Canadian!
  7. Thanks for the feedback, but I’m sticking with the 5 for future proofing. If you can throw a rig together that’s great. I’m looking for maybe 8 gigs of ram, with a 500 watt psu. I don’t really know about storage just yet
  8. Hi, I’m a first time builder and am looking for a cpu. I’ve done some research, and have come to 3 options- the AMD Ryzen 5 1600, the 1600 AF, and the 2600. My budget is a maximum of 200-210 Canadian dollars for my processor. I’m probably going to run it with an NVIDIA GeForce 1660 Super. Could you help me out, and give me some of your hot takes on each of the processors? I was initially going for the AF, as it had he same performance as the 2600, but apparently the price has gone up, and they cost the same now. As of this moment, I’m looking at the 2600, but the 1600’s low price is quite compelling, as I can put that into a good mobo or an m.2 drive instead of a basic ssd. My total budget for the PC is somewhere between 700 and 750 Canadian dollars.
