  1. Is this an ex mining gpu? Maybe it has a custom mining bios thar limits power draw?
  2. A fully overclocked 4790k performs quite different fom a 4770, I got my 4790k to 4.9Ghz all cores and compared to a 4770 @ max 3.9Ghz it could handle a 1070/980ti/2060 quite well where the stock 4790k would struggle a little. I did run with a 1080ti and 2080ti for a while but noticed some performance left on the table @ 1080p and 1440p, though not too much. I think a 2080ti/3060ti/2080 super is just a little overkill even for the fully OC'd 4790k so the 4770 will struggle to get the max out of those GPU's at 1080p or 1440p. Anyway this is an awsome free PC, get whatever good deal y
  3. Sweet, will be a good system with one of those inside. Drop 16GB DDR3 and a cheap SSD and it'll be a nice system. PSU looks a bit sketchy though. Another option is to sell the CPU/MOBO combo and buy into a Ryzen system. Might be able to get a 4 core / 8 thread Ryzen and mobo combo for the price of the 4770 and mobo....Again depends on the deals though. 4770 is pretty much the dead end of that platform. Could go to the 4790k but not worth it really.
  4. If you can get a good deal on that sure, maybe a 1070 or 980ti would be good also...Just depends on the right deal really.
  5. Nah.....maybe minesweeper Seriously though a 4th gen i7 is still a very decent chip, will play most games easily with the right gpu. Drop a mid range GPU in there and it'll be a kickass system for cheap. Anything upto a RTX 2060 should be fine. Probably best suited to the RX 570/80/ GTX 1660/ti though.
  6. Cool! The 4770 is still an awesome CPU and goes for decent money (although overpriced for what it is) but for free that's awesome!
  7. You will never hit a stable 144hz in Cyberpunk, even on low settings 1440p. Hopefully the devs do some serious optimization soon. For the other games you should be fine.
  8. No idea what the msrp is on either, especially in dollars (in the UK) I paid a lot more for my WQ than it's listed in the US (£338.45) but that's the price you pay in the UK with VAT and all that.
  9. Also the AQ is an IPS panel, the WQ is a VA panel. That's why the AQ is more expensive and probably the reason I didn't go for it (can't quite remember) IPS have better colour reproduction and viewing angles.
  10. The AQ version can have adaptive sync AND ELMB (Extreme Low Motion Blur) active at the same time. The curved WQ version can only have one or the other active at the same time. TBH I've tried ELMB on my WQ curved and it's not that great anyway. But that's obviously down to personal preference. Both are G snyc capable down to 45hz I believe. HDR is a gimmick on these monitors, they aren't bright enough.
  11. They should have just stuck to next gen consoles and PC, the PS4/XBONE are woefully underpowered now. I know for a fact mine would sound like a jet engine if I tried to run the game on it, not been cleaned or repasted for a year or so.....I bet 90% of PS4's never have been. I'm not very far in and am a bit dissapointed with the performance on my 3060ti, the settings seem to make little difference to FPS, just glad I have a g-sync compatible monitor and a card capable of DLSS. All in all i'm enjoying my slow relaxed playthrough so far. That being said we are in the time
  12. A bit more modding today, installed a aRGB strip in place of the stock red LED one that goes behind the INWIN logo. Also added a 'stainless steel' reset button (had to drill the case and solder some wires) so I can change the aRGB fans to some of the stock settings and reset it to sync with the mobo. The absolute piece of arse switch I got from eBay was a nightmare, the firsts threaded nut wouldn't go on more than a single thread, the replacement was the same, so ended up using blaack electrical tape and rubber o-rings to keep it in place, also it's not stainless it's chromed brass so scratche
  13. Invest in a nice 850 - 1000w psu and just use it for the next 10 years. Money well spent.
