    Any Advices or Recomendations for a Pc Case?

    Personally i would get the cooler master h500p mesh but i don,t know if it's over your budget in your area...
  2. i_build_nanosuits

    Which TN Panel? This IPS Worth It?

    Yes it's exactly the same panel but with Freesync instead of Gsync.

    Which TN Panel? This IPS Worth It?

    Yes i would do that for sure...i use the predator myself for gaming and it's OUTSTANDING...250$ is nothing...give him that crap 4K piece of trash of yours and tell him a huge thanks.
  4. i_build_nanosuits

    4k or 1440p? (27")

    27'' 1440p all day long...
  5. i_build_nanosuits

    gtx 1080 hof vs gtx 1080 ti

    pretty far appart...they aren't based on the same chip...GTX 1080ti has a lot more cuda cores and ressources...it will destroy any GTX 1080...including the HOF card...we're talking a little over 30% more powerful.

    How to tell if a RX 570 was used for mining

    It doesn't matter, if the card works fine buy ti.
  7. i_build_nanosuits

    1660 ti reccomendation

    i would rather have a slightly used 8GB GTX 1070ti or 1080 personally...if possible! https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1070-Ti-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1660-Ti/3943vs4037 https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1080-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1660-Ti/3603vs4037

    Is 1080ti outdated?

    My overclocked MSI Gaming X TRIO GTX 1080ti overclocked to 2050mhz with 12000mhz GDDR5X paired with a core i7-8700K is defeating the RTX 2080 in all the reviews that came out for the cards both in benchmarks and in games...so NO it's not outdated it's a very powerful card with a lot of fast VRAM.
  9. i_build_nanosuits

    2080 or used 1080 ti?

    but you forget the essential: yes an 8700K and a 1080ti or a 2080 while amazing is WAY too much computer for 1080p resolution in modern games yup! spot on...

    He need a better CPU and monitor to take advantage of such a GPU...doesn't make sense. OP is using a core i5 and a 1080p monitor... $659 you say? If YOU had a GTX 980ti...would rather overclock it and get this before a new GPU? ...personally i would PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor ($164.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: MSI - B450 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ B&H) Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($79.99 @ Newegg) Monitor: Samsung - LC27JG50QQNZA 27.0" 2560x1440 144 Hz Monitor ($329.99 @ Amazon) Total: $689.86 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-03-06 21:57 EST-0500 Sell core i5-4690K with motherboard and memory, keep 1080p monitor for secondary display

    2080 or used 1080 ti?

    i5-4690K will hold your framerates back a fair amount in some games so if you're not reaching your desired performance your CPU might be your issue because the GTX 980ti can easily achieve high framerates at 1080p...At 1080p with nicely tweaked high settings, ultra textures...some low cost anti-aliasing and you should be good to go...i had one for 1440p and it was doing amazing in BF1 for example, this was shot on the machine: (THIS IS 2560x1440p ultra preset with 980ti) You could try to optimize and overclock your CPU and memory...but you need more threads than 4 for many modern games. I had a 4770K 4.3ghz just a month ago now i got the 8700K because even overclocked 4c/8t will run hard in battlefield 5 multiplayer and modern ubisoft open world games (looking at you far cry 5 and AC) If i was you...i would wait for next gen AMD Ryzen CPU's to launch which is in just a couple months i think. Then upgrade your CPU/ram/board and sell what you have online. Then sell the 980ti and buy a better GPU and a VR headset and maybe even a new 1440p 27'' high refresh rate monitor...

    2080 or used 1080 ti?

    980ti is absolutely flawless for 1080p gaming...no upgrade needed for you this generation..
  13. i_build_nanosuits

    Will it be enough

    ...for 6% less performance and 2GB less VRAM...what a bargain! https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1070-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1660-Ti/3609vs4037
  14. i_build_nanosuits

    Help with cpu upgrade.

    if you can afford i7-9700K with Z390 motherboard i would do that...otherwise cheap out on i7-8700 with B360 motherboard it's faster than ryzen.
  15. i_build_nanosuits

    Help with cpu upgrade.

    i5-9600K is only a 6 cores 6 thread chip...it will age poorly and it's already maxing out in the more demanding games...i would not recommend you buy that... How much is an i7-8700 non K?
