      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through   20 May 2017

      PayPal appears to be experiencing problems at the moment, resulting in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you.

  1. EVGA takes back everything...i'm sure you'll get a new card...you bought from the right company
  2. FX-8350 is MUCH worse than i7-3820 mate...i know, i had one...it's aweful...outdated...and slow... i would MUCH rather spend the money on the intel kit. even an i5-2500 is better than an AMD FX kit if you ask me.
  3. 350$ where i'm at is a fair price, i don't know elsewhere...but anywhere between 320$ and 360$ i'd say is a fair deal if you need a good base for a new machine.
  4. here's what i would do: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor ($280.25 @ shopRBC) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master - Seidon 120V 86.2 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($44.99 @ Memory Express) Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver - 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 12g Thermal Paste ($19.99 @ Newegg Canada) Motherboard: ASRock - Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 ATX AM4 Motherboard ($125.00 @ Vuugo) Memory: Team - Dark 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($149.99 @ Newegg Canada) Storage: ADATA - Premier Pro SP920 256GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($116.98 @ DirectCanada) Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.50 @ Vuugo) Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB ACX 3.0 Video Card ($336.99 @ Amazon Canada) Case: Phanteks - ECLIPSE P400 ATX Mid Tower Case ($89.99 @ NCIX) Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($94.99 @ NCIX) Monitor: Acer - GN246HL 24.0" 1920x1080 144Hz Monitor ($249.99 @ Amazon Canada) Keyboard: Cooler Master - Devastator II Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse ($14.99 @ NCIX) Headphones: Kingston - HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset ($49.98 @ DirectCanada) Other: windows 10 64 bit kinguin ($30.00) Total: $1668.63 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-05-21 22:35 EDT-0400
  5. i would buy it for 350$ CAD
  6. PSU is fine get a GTX 1080 (not 1080ti) and a 2560x1440 monitor...from there, upgrade your CPU to either an i5-7600 or i7-7700.
  7. at 2560x1440 or higher abolutely (no reason to buy a 1080ti for lower resolution anyways) that CPU is a perfect CPU for gaming...knock yourself!
  8. yes, of course it will...badly...get an i7-7700
  9. i would let it on stock settings, but manually downvolt it a bit
  10. Look if you can find a used GTX 750ti or GTX 950 at good price and call it a day if you can afford it get a GTX 1050
  11. very few games...is already ''a few games'' too much for a 350$ CPU...and these are games from NOW or the past...what about...FUTURE games...
  12. exactly...and a R5 1600 is cheaper than a i7-6800K which is the real competitor here...and if you clock the AMD to 3.9 or 4.0ghz it's faster than the OC 4.0/4.2ghz 6800K...even in single-threaded performance
  13. on average FPS...not in perceived smootness of animation.
  14. well...i use an i7 myself, yes it's not a 7700K...but still overclocked haswell...close enough IMHO...and in some games i do see high CPU load on all cores/threads, and there are micro-stutters from time to time, which apparently is not there on ryzen 6 and 8 cores chip...reviewers seem to agree that gaming feel smoother on a multi-core ryzen chip, and to me it kinda make sense...personally if my CPU die i ain't buyin a 7700K...i'm getting a R5 1600.
  15. i would get something like this, overclock the R5 1600 a bit and i think you have a very good CPU for gaming for years to come...more headroom than 7700K...and cheaper...6c/12t/16MB cache...better: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor ($217.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: MSI - B350 PC MATE ATX AM4 Motherboard ($84.33 @ OutletPC) Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($110.99 @ Newegg) Total: $413.21 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-05-18 12:04 EDT-0400
