  1. I was thinking about getting a b450 tomahawk max, because the same variant in b550 comes up to the same price as the x570 board mentioned. You have given me a lot to consider, now it all bottles down to availability and how much I can get the components for. Thank you for all the help, have a good one!
  2. Does remind me of the conversation me and dad had while checking for the parts, will definitely reconsider on the mobo. Thanks!
  3. The msi and Sceptre look like good options, viotek isn't available. Thank you for the suggestions.
  4. I was thinking about a noctua or a be quiet cooler, should do the job (?) Not sure if I'd upgrade next year, but there is an upgrade path to be taken for sure.
  5. Water cooling the cpu, my bad, I should've been a little more descriptive. I will look at more monitors, but I am not that good with them, any suggestions? The reason why I picked the zowie was cause its known to be the "best" monitor for gaming.
  6. Thanks for that, I'll look into the SATA SSD's. About that 5600XT, its coming up more expensive than the 2060 that I selected, not quite sure why. And the majority of the 5600XT's available here are triple fan design, and the only dual fan card is 10-11k more than the 2060. And I do plan on water cooling it, and I would assume it'd hurt the chances of me being able to get a radiator in the front.
  7. Budget (including currency): 800USD (60K INR) Country: India Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: mainly gaming, may try streaming Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): going to the local stores this weekend to check prices and start buying parts. I am building my first ever gaming pc. I am now confused as to getting a b450/550 or an x570 mobo. I don't want to buy another motherboard after Zen 3 launches (I want to be able to upgrade it without any issues), as the probability of Zen 3 being supported on a B450 is upto the manufacturer. I also want to make sure that the RAM would run at XMP/AMP/DOCP This is the build so far, would love for some inputs or advices on how to make sure it lasts: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE WIFI (need a wifi enabled board as the PC will be somewhere the cables will be hard to run to) Memory: ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D60G 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory or G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB (8GBx2) DDR4 3200MHz \[F4-3200C16D-16GTZR\] Storage: ADATA XPG SX6000 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING 6G 6GB GDDR5 or Zotac GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan 6GB GDDR6 Case: NZXT H510i ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply: Corsair RMx 650W or RM 650W (depending on whats available) Fully Modular ATX Power Supply Monitor: BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor Still searching for a keyboard, came across the Logitech G213 prodigy, but not quite sold on it yet, any suggestions on the keyboards would also be really helpful. Thank you. Edit : formatting
  8. Sorry for formatting issues, I am on mobile. Okay LTT forums, you're my last hope. I have an Acer Aspire 4738 of a family member, which BSOD'd a few days ago. Backed up the data in the "C" partition (where 90% of the users data was) using a Linux bootable I had made just for these kind of cases. This laptop is slightly unusual, it's got 5gigs of RAM. I was surprised too when I opened it up a few minutes ago. The laptop now needs a new OS, win10, no brainer. I get by win10 bootable, get the laptop to boot into the win10 setup, so far so good, here's where it gets... Tricky. When you click the "install now" button after the language selection, it just gives me a screen that says "setup is starting" and stays there for the next 30-60 minutes (yes, I actually waited it out). After which it will take me to drive/partition selection, which will refresh for another 20 or so minutes and then let me select a partition. After around 20-25 minutes, I get an error "cannot be installed on this drive" and the setup cancels and starts all over again. Now, I think it's because of the weird RAM config, I open it up and take the 1gig stick out, now it's just 4gigs, should be no issues from this point, right?? Nope, the laptop doesn't like the 4gig stick and shuts off as soon as I hit the power button. Tried the 1gig stick, boots up like a charm and even boots I to the win10 installer. Now, it's still stuck at the same screen "setup is starting". I still think it's bad RAM. Any help/tips are appreciated. Thanks guys. Note : BIOS is super basic, there's not a lot of options to fiddle. If anyone wants pictures for my issue, I am more than happy to provide them for further clarification.
  9. well the last time i tried something like this i erased the whole hard drive, so just to be sure but i did recover all the data so that was good on the other hand i had a fresh copy of win 8.1 installed later
  10. Okay, i've been using win 8.1 pro for a while now and since the desktop is a family desktop i am starting to wonder if some sort of virus got in. First utorrent started acting all crazy, then the explorer.exe went bonkers, even though i deleted all the files of utorrent from "\AppData\Roming\utorrent" i still have a "utorrent.exe" running in the background. So coming to the point a few years ago in my local paper i read this article about one installing ubuntu on a flash drive to get rid of said virus since 99% of the viruses are aimed at windows OS's, i was pretty sure i saved that article i couldn't find it, So will you guys help me ASAP because the amount of insane shit happening on my desktop is unbelievable!
  11. Rorossi These have to be my favorite https://www.vessel.com/videos/Su_Wqd7Vl https://www.vessel.com/videos/MI7F0u2H8

  18. i did do some research, and these were the two i selected, but i needed more help, so i came here
  19. I need a game capture card with can record at 1080p 60 FPS. I was going for Aver Media's LGP Lite or the normal LGP. It's for recording on a PC by the way, since fraps has a crazy file size when recording. I was looking at the elgato hd60 (tell me if it's good or something ) I will be playing FPS, racing, TPS, RPG, etc
  20. The G1 has a triple windforce cooler if am right, so that means it'll be around the 12 inch mark and the 380t has support for 11 inch GPU's only
  21. I really need help on this one, there are sooooo many good headsets and controllers in the market. I was going for a steelseries h wireless and a razer sabertooth controller. So any other suggestions?
  22. i do plan on overclocking in the future, that is after a few months on the stock settings, when i'll need a few more horses to keep it on the bleeding edge of graphical performance
  23. Okay, i was going to buy a Asus GTX 980 4GB for my new rig(the forum link), since there have been a ton of new cards out in the GTX 980 range, i was thinking which is more powerful and the usual stuff. And i have to fit it in a corsair 380T, so....gimme a few suggestion's
