  1. This is great advice, 11600K is so much cheaper too. Thank you for this
  2. Just check, if you add a CPU Cooler, does the error vanish? Down the bottom of the page, if I remove the cooler, I get... "Intel Core i9-10900K 3.7 GHz 10-Core Processor does not include a stock CPU cooler. Adding a CPU Cooler to your part list is recommended."
  3. Did I make any mistakes in PCP perhaps?
  4. This is what I came up with. PCPartpicker didn't seem to show any issues. So given the use case of "go as fast as possible" and have many things open at once - how's this build? Much appreciated guys Notes 1. Wifi on the MOBO is a big help. 2. Air cooling should be alright... I think? Shouldn't need water cooling for a business PC right? 3. I just noticed that's a single stick of RAM. I'll try and make it 2 sticks.
  5. Thanks guys. How about Intel CPUs? Those usually don't need GPUs right? The more I think about it, for this use case, restricting myself to AMD probably doesn't make sense.
  6. Hey LTT community, So I figured I can save a good amount of money or funnel those funds into a more powerful CPU if I pass on the GPU. I'm looking into the Ryzen family of CPUs. Lots of windows open, web browsers, business software etc. This is the website I plan to purchase the CPU from (Australian Site). Can Ryzen CPUs run a computer without a GPU? Ignoring gaming, are there any downsides to not having a GPU in my system? Which CPU would you buy for this use case? Thanks for any and all replies.
  7. Unsure if bumping up a thread is allowed. It's been a week and I still have this issue. Can anyone help?
  8. OS: Windows 10 Home 64 bit BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 1.50 27/06/2017 (I'm definitely not confident flashing the BIOS and the instructions from the website say if I don't know what I'm doing, I probably shouldn't do it.) Cpu: i7-7700k RAM: 16gb DDR4 GPU: GTX 1080 PSU: I see a sticker on it that says "rx 735ap" so it may be a RAIDMAX rx 735ap 80plus Bronze 735W. Problem: No devices successfully connect via Bluetooth to my PC. I have tried 2 phones and 1 headset (Sony WH-1000XM4). I have also tried a USB Bluetooth adapter and my MSI Herald AC wifi card with built in B
  9. So I've read so often that a gaming PC only needs an i5 CPU. To what degree of multitasking would I need to upgrade from an i5 to an i7? Say you have a AAA game open, Chrome, some music application, other windows here and there. Does this warrant the jump to i7 or would you have to have a lot more processes going on?
  10. I'm looking, but I guess it'll be something I get online if need be. So, I see you've changed up the Motherboard and CPU. Could you please explain to me why/ what advantages I get out of this? I suppose I don't need the Bluray. Thanks for pointing that out. Probably 1080p, though a little future proofing wouldn't hurt?
