  1. Yes, the RX480 will work with your motherboard - assuming you have a power supply that can support the power draw of the GPU.
  2. Try searching amazon for HDMI to VGA cables. There are plenty
  3. I would personally go with DP just because.
  4. What resolution? I'm assuming 1440p or 1080p with a 1060 but...
  5. You probably don't want the massive SSD, something in the realm of 240-256GB is probably good. Spend more money for the PSU (and cooler if you're planning on better temps). Although with a slight OC on mine (4.7GHz at 1.225Vcore), AIDA64 reads max 78 celcius or so with a Cryorig H7.
  6. Do you want to be filming or taking photos with the camera? If you are taking photos, I think the A6000 is a good buy. Keep in mind that on black friday, BHPhoto had this thing (without lens) for $400 or so. I personally use the bigger brother (A7ii) and it's a great shooter. I know people who use the A6000 and they also love it. If you also want to do video, I recommend spending a bit more and go for the A6300.
  7. Thank you so much guys. This has been very informative. I'll see how my overclock goes
  8. For stress testing in Prime95, which stress test should I run (e.g. blended, etc.)? What is the difference between VID, VIN, and Vcore? In my bios, I set the Core Voltage, which one is this? Sorry for all these questions, I'm new to the CPU overclocking scene. I've only ever overclocked GPUs. Thanks.
  9. Yup, it's disabled. But it still slows down. I will check my BIOS when I get back. However, note that I'm running it on an air cooler (Cryorig H7) and it is Prime95 after all...
  10. I have the same mobo on my build. And from what I recall, I don't have that high of a temperature reading. Try using the BIOS to read mobo temperatures.
  11. So I have been messing around with my 7700K. I seem to have a stable 1.2 VIN for 4.5GHz. However, I cannot seem to get past this barrier, even with 1.3 VIN for 4.7GHz. It only seems to achieve this speed when not under load (with intel speed step turned off). Whenever I run Prime95, the speed drops down to 4.4/4.3GHz or so. Is there something wrong? I am getting 75 celcius or so (with an air cooler) so I don't think temperature is the problem. Any ideas why I'm not getting higher frequencies? Thanks!
  12. Why not get the 7700K? It's pretty much the same price. Maybe a Z270 board?
  13. Doesn't really matter. Both will be similar.
  14. Personally, I would go with the IPS panel just because of better color accuracy. But jjust FYI, looking at your pecs, your GPU isn't going to run triple A games at ultra settings at 2K at 165FPS.
  15. If he bought the parts from you, maybe he should reinstall Windows/make sure to remove previous drivers of previous GPUs.
  16. It's the Corsair M65 RGB (no "Pro" name) I don't think the "Pro" thing even exists lol
  17. Well I edit most of my photos in Lightroom + Photoshop. I am leaning more towards the 7700K because it is around $100 cheaper (mobo+CPU) than the 6800K + mobo combo. Thanks everyone!
  18. I personally have a Corsair M65 RGB and I love it. It's a good FPS mouse.
  19. I kinda really need a PC now, would a 7700K be the better option then?
  20. I would go with Pro because it supports more RAM as well as allowing the possibility to turn off automatic updates.
  21. What's your budget. I would go with an 7700K or 7600K. If you don't feel like your gaming is suffering, slapping a beefy cooler on the CPU and overclocking the heck out of it will yield very desirable results.
  22. I'm looking in getting another computer, preferably air cooled. This is what I have now: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/cxL2BP Should I go with a 6800K or stick with the 7700K? It might look weird that I don't have a GPU but I am waiting for whatever AMD has to release - I had a 1060 6GB and i5 6500 on my previous build (I just sold it yesterday). The reason I have 32GB of RAM is I edit videos as well as handle very large RAW image files. I currently don't game too much, that's why I sold my previous build. I want something to be even more powerful - preferably with many threads
  23. But keep in mind that this case has restricted airflow; so a better cooler may not benefit much. The heat is not being removed from the system.
  24. That's true but he didn't ask for ram, just CPU and Mobo.
