  1. What I can understand is why there isn't a heavy backing for me to get the super fast i5 9600K? What is up with that? https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/intel_core_i5_9600k_processor_review,24.html This article here totally points to it as being something to pair with a high end gpu for gaming. Also don't think I shared this but I will not be overclocking anything at this time as it seems there would be no need to do so with the i5 9600K or the RX 5700 XT. With the cpu I can always get some sort of AIO water cooling solution later on. I just am finding it hard to buy AMD when my experience with the video card has been a headache and well performance wise it is not supposed to touch this Intel solution.
  2. Eh don't have to worry about what was brought up here as Cyberpunk 2077 will run nicely on my LE Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 console. : )
  3. I looked up the Ryzen 3 3300x and finding it available is near impossible. Thanks for your help here.
  4. What is the performance boost I would be getting with an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 over an i5 2500k?
  5. It is great for people who can get it running. My brother bought it for me not long ago and the game refuses to run on a pc with specs much higher than recommended. So sick of dealing with work around type things for games when these companies still letting their games be sold doing nothing to update them. Seriously how hard is it to put out a patch? As for playing this I played it on console and to me for the little I played it (and ended up getting stuck) well it wasn't anything special. Still to each their own.
  6. Both look absolutely horrible. As for how they perform I will wait for reviews but at the beginning of a life cycle of a content usually other than one game not much takes advantage of the hardware. I am more interested to see how the last games for the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro look like and perform.
  7. Resetting your BIOS I think would be the next step.
  8. With all the free games handed out on console or pc these days it is hard to really want to buy anything. I was saying to someone yesterday if you can believe it that free has taken some of the fun out of gaming. It also feeds the digital market and thus it furthers the agenda of companies to go all digital which some of us don't want. I like my boxed copies. As for the Steam Summer Sale I have bought nothing but I may get that remaster or whatever of Bulletstorm just for the Duke Nukem content you can use in it. Also note some games that were shown off in some kind of Steam Summer event prior to that are not out yet and if they were released during this I would have bought them. Finally I have been wanting to buy Far Cry 5 for $19 but the fact is I still have all the Far Cry games still to clear prior to it. It is getting harder and harder to justify buying more games ... backlog4life.
  9. Borderlands 3 MINIMUM: Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system OS: Windows 7/10 (latest service pack) Processor: AMD FX-8350 or Intel i5-3570 Memory: 6 GB RAM Graphics: AMD Radeon™ HD 7970 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2 GB DirectX: Version 11 Storage: 75 GB available space Sound Card: DirectX Compatible RECOMMENDED: Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system OS: Windows 7/10 (latest service pack) Processor: AMD Ryzen™ 5 2600 (Intel i7-4770) Memory: 16 GB RAM Graphics: AMD Radeon™ RX 590 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB DirectX: Version 12 Storage: 75 GB available space Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Quite a bit of wiggle room to play that game. Like someone already mentioned an RX 570 or RX 580 is a good choice.
  10. I am not happy with Xbox One controllers period. They are way more fragile / prone to break than what my brother, my son and I have used in the past. In fact for PC I continue to use a wired Xbox 360 controller. As for the D-Pad the best one ever to me was on the Sega Genesis.
  11. All I will say is my experience with both brands has been excellent. Zotac I only had once for a pretty expensive video card at the time and with Gigabyte almost all my motherboards I have used in my builds and for others have stood the test of time. As for current hardware I know like someone said in this thread already Gigabyte is a really good choice if you are getting an RX 5700 XT. Also someone mentioned Sapphire and I know for a fact that the Sapphire Pulse I got his highly rated. As for motherboards I am out of touch with all that as it has been some time since I needed to do a new build. I will say though I really have trouble stomaching putting an MSI motherboard in my pc. There are others who have done better for far longer but yeah times change and maybe I give them a chance. I don't really want to though. Anyway like someone always said too is that there are bad products made by every company and yes you just have to do your research and that means not just looking at one source for information. Also with even really good products there will be a few bad apples in the bunch.
  12. I have a 200 mm outtake fan on the top of my HAF 912 case and never hear it. Also the version of the RX 5700 XT I got , the Sapphire Pulse, is pretty quiet most of the time. The only time I ever noticed noise was some really crazy noise like coil whine from a video card or a cpu cooler that sounded like a jet engine. With those last mentions I knew what I was getting into with the cpu cooler but as for the video card it was kind of a luck of the draw thing and a common issue with the video card and so with that said always continue to do research into what you are getting. I wish I didn't purchase the video card I did that I had used til this year as yes the coil whine at times really was extremely annoying.
  13. My dream pc build? It would be one coming out of a shop run by me.
  14. My kids grew up and have their own lives so no more fireworks shows with them down the river on the 4th of July. They are American born and Canadian raised. We used to drive down the Canadian side and watch them with their stepmom many moons ago. I miss that and so if it were not 2020 I likely would have had a bottle of liquor with me and went and sat under the overpass and drank or just made the day go by doing whatever at home.
  15. Those U.S. prices are so sweet. Unfortunately I am in Canada. : S One thing you said though that I will do is recycle as many parts as possible as I can always find used or on the cheap in the future to put the old i5 2500k back together.
