Looking to join the Master Race.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): £800-900

Country: UK

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: twitch Streaming, video editing and games such as Doom, COD, F1. 

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 need gaming monitor, keyboard & mouse (Not included in budget). Main aim is to play at 1080p at 120fps where possible. 
 

Been looking at having a R5 3600 cpu paired with a 2060 GPU. Seem to see that the Radeon cards aren’t great for streaming? Unless there is a fix to improve streaming quality using a Radeon card?
 

thanks

The reason they aren't as good for streaming is because NVIDIA has their new NVENC encoder, which really helps to take the load off of the CPU. A 2060 is fine for your budget, but if you can try and get a 5700 and flash it to the XT bios.

By getting a 5700 and flashing the bios, would the stream quality be closer to the 2060? From videos I’ve seen by EposVox the 5700 seemed to give off very blocky visuals in fast paced games.

It all depends on what settings you use with OBS. I was suggesting that as a really good bang-for-buck machine.

Ah yeah. I’ve seen a lot say that you do get a lot more bang for buck from the Radeon GPU.

 

The only reason I suggested the NVIDIA was due to the encoding on it.  

 

I’m trying to think do most people who watch streamers notice the video quality whilst watching on their screens? Can a regular person notice the difference in steaming quality.

 

I assume that a Ryzen 3500 can’t handle the encoding side of things. If it could, I could lean towards the Radeon

Well, a 3600 is a really solid value gaming CPU. If you wanted to go more heavily on the streaming side, I would suggest getting an NVIDIA GPU and using the NVENC encoder, rather than just buying a more powerful CPU as your GPU matters more for gaming than a CPU does.

Just a lot of confusing stuff on it all. Especially with lots of people saying of driver issues with the Radeon. 
 

another daft question, 16gb of ram sufficient enough for light video editing?

If video editing is light, then yes. Put the three case fans in the front for intake. 120gb ssd for os and freq. used apps, ex. Google chrome. 2tb hdd for games. Good luck. Use the nvenc from 2060 super to run stream

I’ve seen this pre built, I have made some changes to bring the cost down. 
CPU: R7 3700x >>> AMD R5 3600 Save £100
Mobo ASUS TUF B450-PLUS Gaming 
RAM 16GB Corsair DDR4 3200MHz 
M.2 Intel 512GB 660p M.2 NVMe 
Optical NONE
Case: KOLINK INSPIRE K5 RGB >>>>> PHANTEKS ECLIPSE P300 GLASS-BLACK
PSU: 600W RioToro 
Gfx: 5600xt >>>> GigaByte Dual Fan 2060 £10
HDD Seagate 3TB HDD
Cooler: ID Cooler: >>>>> AMD Cooler Save £40
3-GAMEMAX ADDRESSABLE RGB 3-IN-1 KIT FAN-STRIP-REMOTE >>>> 4 X High Performance F12 Fans - £12
OS: Windows 10 ----->> Remove OS -£50

 

£820 with a 3 year warranty. 
 

is it worth a price hike between a 2060 vs the 2060 super.

I assume I could let the CPU handle the streaming there?

 

Am I getting to strung up on having an NVIDIA card due to streaming? Are most stream consumers going to notice the visual quality of a stream as long as it's not potato quality?

does anyone know of any streamers who are using a 5700 as their main gpu?

Quote if you want replies, otherwise I won't get a notification.

NVidia cards are better for streaming because of their super efficient NVENC encoder, so if you can afford to wait for the new Ampere GPUs, then wait. At the very least, you should be able to pick up an RTX 2070 Super for like $300 used once they're out. 

Note that a used NVidia 10-series card like a GTX 1080 won't have the high-level NVENC that the 2000 series does.

Many thanks. 

So we're looking at a September release for the 3000 series of RTX cards, with the 3070 and 3060 (I assume) coming at a later date? Do the 2070's drop as people will want to upgrade to the 3000 series?

 

How reliable are used GPU's? Does it depends on the user?

(still getting my head around PC components)

Many thanks for your help so far!

Yes, September to the best of my knowledge. 

 

GPUs theoretically last basically forever, because they're not used for intensive tasks 24/7. The exception, however, is bitcoin mining, where the GPU is being used to perform calculations at max capacity 24/7, often for months at a time. There's almost no way to tell if a GPU has been used for mining unfortunately, so with GPUs, as well as power supplies and SSDs, it's always safer to buy new.

The Mobo, Case and PSU are terrible. The SSD is QLC NAND, which is not reccomended for boot-drives. The case will be extremely restictive for cooling, especially for a 3700x + 5700xt combo. The PSU is for low-end systems with a low-power GPU at best. There are too many quirks with this just to fit in the 3700x + 5700xt. Sorry don't take this personal, but i just cant recommend this.

The motherboard is fine, a QLC SSD is going to be just fine for the average consumer. Kolink Classic Power v2 PSUs are absolutely fine, they're on par with units like Seasonic's M12ii. The PSU you linked is tier B+ on our forum's tier list as opposed to tier B for the kolink. You call that terrible and recommend something just marginally better?

I've built in that case. Cheap doesn't automatically mean bad. It's a very good looking case with a tempered glass front and side panel, is surprisingly roomy inside with good cable management options, room for 3 120mm fans (ships with 2 decent ones already), and has a PSU shroud (and another shroud in the front for management. The only issue I see is the brightly coloured case cables. But they're just case cables. If they're visible, sharpie the motherfuckers.

You, on the other hand, got the country wrong, exceeded the budget by a huge amount, and for the extra heap you spent (with no idea about price or availability in his region), there are no performance benefits.

Imo for streaming and maybe even video production (even some games today) 1tb total storage is not enough.

My problem is not that it's cheap. The problem is the glass front, which severely restricts cooling.

He'll be streaming, which will put constant load onto storage devices. I'd not go for QLC in this case. For anyone who is JUST gaming i'd say QLC is enough.

I have been looking at cases, I want something stealthy (maybe with room to add some RGB on the inside). Not fussed on RGB fans. I like the Phanteks P300A. Want a case with a tempered glass side and a PSU shroud.

Is it worth sticking to a 2060 over spending £100 more on the super?

Trying to find some videos on streaming from a 5700XT, to see if quality can be improved? Or will nothing match the NVIDIA for stream quality?

With your tight budget, I'd say it's not really worth it.

The P300A is a great option. Sadly it's sold out everywhere everytime. The P400A is the bigger brother with lots of room. Both have awesome cooling capabilities because of the mesh front.

Nvidia is currently winning for streaming quality, AMD doesn't yet have an answer for NVENC. But the RTX 2060 is a slow-ass card for the money. I'd argue the super is slightly better value, but not by much. But I'm seeing used RTX 2070 Super cards for about 375 GBP on ebay in the 'buy it now' section, lower for auctions. Maybe do that? You're running the risk that it's a mining GPU though. I would just wait and buy one on clearance, or buy the 3060, it should be as fast as a 2070 super anyway given NVidia's trends since 2014

P1 is QLC but has a DRAM cache. P2 is TLC but DRAMless. Something to watch out for.

A 5400RPM mass storage drive is going to fucking crawl by today's standards. 

The MSI board isn't much better than the Biostar board. They're very similar, but they're also similar in price so I don't care.

Depends on what you need it for. 1080p 144Hz will be the perfect fit. 1440p high-refresh is even possible in many titles. It's not bad value for it's uses. Also it may have big advantages in the future IF DLSS will kick in more.

the VRM on this thing isn't gonna hold up with a 3700x. even with a 3600 i'd be very skeptical. a non-heatsinked board would be tier F on the list at the most.

I swear I've seen you recommend it before, but maybe with a 3300x. I figured it was fine since they're both 65w chips, and the MSI board is non-heatsinked too.
