  1. So that's who's hogging TSMC's production! Hey everyone, lets short Tesla!
  2. after watching GN benchmarks, I switched the order to 3200mhz and a 5600x for a slight price increase. I did not know how much better the Zen 3 parts were, so thanks Amazon Prime!
  3. it's bad, but I found a 1070 ti for 285 that was only listed 2 minutes ago, gotta take the small wins
  4. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Final build was this CPU and cooler ryzen 5 3700x 285 GPU used palit gtx 1070 ti airstream from ebay 285 PSU corsair rm750 105 mobo asus b450m prime 75 case fractal design focus 43 SSD wd blue 1tb m.2 92 RAM corsair vengeance 32gb 2666 108
  5. forgot to add, peripherals are already bought
  6. Budget (including currency): £1000 Country: GBR Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Adobe Creative suite, Warzone, 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): Building an all purpose gaming and video processing pc for my media student brother. Specifically went for an overkill PSU for reliability and its 10yr warranty. Buying today. Used GTX 1070 in 2021 because obviously the GPU market is a joke
  7. yeah, i was having a blast impressing all my quarantine friends with my webcam quality, then the camera ran out of juice and i looked like damn fool
  8. Just tried it with a DSLR, noticeable increase in video quality regarding colours and lighting when using Zoom compared to even the Iphone 11 Pro. Limited to some extent because the utility doesn't use the camera's microphone, so you will still need one, but that's a moot point because the camera's mic would go into a feedback loop anyway with the system audio. Thumbs up for Canon though, it's very easy to use and set up.
  9. Good for gaming and editing, but not very good battery; Alienware M15 R2 Gigabyte Aero 15) MSI GS65 Stealth Thin, light, great battery and with awesome displays, but not as good as the above in performance for the same budget: Dell XPS 15 MacBook Pro 15 (you would have to play very light games
  10. 1. Compared to what reference? 2. You're seriously saying that having the fastest chip available on a phone isn't going to improve the gaming experience. Okay, if I take an iphone 8 at 50% battery, and this new SE at 50% battery. I then go on a train journey with no outlets and load up COD to play online, the extension in battery life is something that I would call an improvement to my gaming experience. 3. 2-3 years from now, the difference will be very apparent. I can use this example because Apple devices do stay relevant many years after their release, and the new f
  11. A13 is a great chip and should be the UVP that sells this to people looking for a mid range killer. Literally everything that a phone does as a daily driver is helped to no end by a great chip. 1) Battery life 2) games 3) camera 4) video chats (especially important since that's how we're gonna interact with our non-households for the next year until COVID vaccine, both for work and personal reasons) 5) productivity
  12. Throw the whole damn thing away, and use that money get some full stack dudes to build you a new system using [*insert any SQL based stack that a 2-year student can make]. This cost is sunk.
  13. Have you tried with one stick of ram in slot 1, and then unplugging every device but the boot drive? Also check if the RAM timings and RAM clocks are set to spec. You may also need to check if you have the latest BIOS (you mentioned it was reset, perhaps it was rolled back). The 4790K needs extra voltage by default so may need to bump it up manually if that overclocking message persists.
