  1. Sick, thx. Sounds like 4 cores is still the standard for gaming, but other programs have picked up a little more on using more than that for multitasking since I've been away?
  2. Thoughts on a 3300X instead of the 3600? Looks to be cheaper and higher clocked at the cost of 2 cores... When I last paid attention 4 cores seemed like the standard, is that still the case? Or is it worth to have 6?
  3. The PSU is B+ tier on the forum's tier list, which is about what I was shooting for, any reason in particular you don't like it?
  4. Did you meen 3200 speed RAM? 3600 seems excessive
  5. Budget (including currency): $1000ish Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming mostly, and some software development. Other details Here's the parts list I cooked up, however seeing as this is my first time designing a rig in years, I wanna get some opinions here and see what I may have missed. What are people's thoughts on this build? I want a 2000 series card for the video codec, and MicroATX or smaller is the preferred form factor, this case is about as big as I'm willing to go.
  6. Yeah, I know, but there do look to be a few things out there, was just curious if anybody knew of anything worth recommending.
  7. Looking for something small, something that fits inside a 6x12x16 carry-on. Anybody have anything they recommend?
  8. MSI Motherboards I'm finding that are microATX and support B450 are all in the $200 range, do you think something from Gigabyte would work? I was thinking maybe this one
  9. I'm currently designing a build for the first time in years, and I am encountering an issue on PCPP where I am being told that some motherboards with older chipsets(B350, A320) may require a BIOS flash, and therefore an older CPU, to support a newer CPU. Is there any way to know which will and which won't? And/or, a way to get around this? I've heard of companies sending loaner CPUs, or of motherboards that can flash without a CPU... How do I handle this? Not really looking to spend a ton on a mobo RN.
  10. Yeah, that's about how I got into it in the first place... Understanding this all again is so weird EDIT: Also remembering how to use this forum
  11. Hello LTT community, I used to come here a lot, was an avid builder and was pretty decent at PC stuff back in my day. However, it's been a long time since I've been paying attention to what's going on in the PC hardware space. I stopped paying attention before/just as intel started doing whacky things with their CPUs. I was stepping away from the desktop space for the time being, headed towards an eGPU setup (which I'm using now, and am quite happy with). However, I have friends with PC questions, and an old desktop i want to revive to be used as an HTPC for my housemates, and a few other
  12. I've just come home from college, and I brought my VR setup with me. I set it up, launched beatsaber, and suddenly it's unplayable. The framerates are low, and the sabers are lagging behind my controllers. Some interesting variables: -im using an eGPU setup, Lenovo yoga C930 max spec and a superclocked 1070 over the mantiz Venus enclosure -I travelled by train, and let the setup with me in the car, but I forgot to cushion the graphics card -beat saber just updated -ive uninstalled and reinstalled beatsaber -ive uninstalled and reinstalled the Oculus software -trie
