  1. I've looked at so, so many cases. I still don't know what one to pick. I don't need insane thermal performance or anything, not insane airflow, but still welcome airflow. I don't really want to spend more than ~100 or so. I've heard good things about the Fractal Meshify C, but also heard in 2020 it's not worth it compared to others. I can't made a definitive answer. Any help? Specs: Sapphire PULSE RX 580 (8GB), Ryzen 3 3200G (Soon to be Ryzen 5 3600), Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB (16GB), MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX, Corsair RM (2019) 750W
  2. Ngl, that Fractal one looks too good to be true; I mean, 10 year warranty, 650 wats (i'm looking at 650 model), Platinum, and only ~120 dollars? Even with 5 star reviews, is this PSU THAT good? I don't really know the "fair" price range for PSU's, but damn, that looks good
  3. I have a Sapphire PULSE RX 580 (8GB), Ryzen 3 3200G, and am getting Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 RAM, and an MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX. What PSU should I get? I've checked the tierlist, but can't decide on any of the PSU's. I want one with future capabilities, so durability/longevity, but also enough watts for when i eventually upgrade to a Ryzen 5 3600, and any future GPU (Ofc not a 2080 or 3080 or anything, but y'know, something.) I am not looking to spend 300 dollars on a PSU. I already don't wanna spend more than 120 dollars.
  4. What's Furmark? Is it some GPU testing program?
  5. Every now and again, my PC would flash to a random-colored screen, audio from the last second would loop and I would be forced to restart my PC. I know this is the GPU as i had it in an old pc, it crashed in there, and when I put it into this new one it continued to crash. I don't believe this is a power issue because: It never crashes during GPU intensive games. For example, it will crash while browsing the internet, watching youtube, or playing something that hardly takes up my GPU like The Binding of Isaac Rebirth But when playing GPU intensive games I can hardly run well, like DOOM, Resident Evil 3, or For Honor, it has NEVER CRASHED ONCE. Not a single time has it crashed while playing any game that puts strain on my GPU. The GPU in particular is an XFX RX 550 (4GB) CPU: i3-3220 (don't judge okay i know my pc is weak) RAM: 4gb DDR3 PSU: Corsair CX430 Motherboard: Dell Optiplex 7010 Motherboard (Look I had no other options, i'm upgrading my pc very soon) Does anyone know a fix for this? And before people say, yes I have updated my drivers, Yes I have cleared all dust out of the fan.
  6. I hear the Phanteks Eclipse P400A is especially good for it's price point (~$90). I don't know whether or not to order it myself though. Maybe give that one a try?
  7. That's a strange case. I was just wondering what you were talking about as searching "N450" on Newegg doesn't show any cases.
  8. I've heard the Meshify C doesn't really hold up well in 2020 compared to other similarly priced cases with better airflow. Though will the airflow it provides with stock fans be worth it? Will they hold me over until I get aftermarket ones? Like I said I like the aesthetics the most in the Fractal one but heard that the recent Lian Li one and Phanteks one are just simply better in most ways.
  9. I've been looking at cases (more airflow oriented) and while some of these cases like the Phanteks P400a and the Lian Li Lancool 2 Mesh seem great airflow cases, they are about 100+ dollars, and so I've been wondering; How important is the airflow to a case, and how much should I actually spend on it? Do I need these 150 dollar max airflow cases? Will the extra 10 degrees of air actually affect things? If the airflow is that important, what cases would you recommend that aren't y'know, over ~120 dollars.
  10. Oh, nice. Yeah that even further supports my decision getting a B450 board. Although I do appreciate people at least suggesting thinking about the future, although I'm not the kind of guy buying the new GPU's or CPU's, I simply don't have the kinda money for that stuff. I can afford a mid-high tier build, but not these 1500-2000 dollar builds with RTX 30somethin shit and intel i-9billions and shit.
  11. I'm not completely sure what an "apu" is (im pretty sure its inegrated graphics) but I have an RX 580 as a dedicated GPU. I ordered the Ryzen 3 3200g when I knew a bit less about pc's and didn't realize that saving the 100 for the Ryzen 5 3600 was the way better option, so really as long as it can handle the Ryzen 3 for until I get the Ryzen 5 that's fine.
  12. Nice! That pretty much puts the nail in the coffin; The Tomahawk it is! I'll look into the Pro one, though I like the looks a little better in the Tomahawk. And if it is guaranteed Ryzen 3000 ready, and a confirmed BIOS update for the new Ryzen 4000 (which i wasn't really planning on getting anyway but hey at least its there) and it has good vrm's, than I'll likely get it. The only other thing I've heard is better about B550 boards is "PCIE 4.0" slots, which I don't know alot about, but I heard it isn't really worth it and I likely (an average gamer who doesn't play competitively or need 144+fps) won't need it.
  13. Alright, ty. Also I couldn't really tell from the comments, but so most of these B450 boards can support the new 4000 Ryzen with a BIOS update, or no? I couldn't really tell.
  14. Just to clarify, Zen 3 is the new 4000 series coming out, right? Also I have no idea what the "4 (8 in pair) 4C029N shit means, I don't know that much about motherboards other than the basics. What would you say is the "Best" B450 board (if there is a definitive "best") at around the 125 dollar price range?
