  1. If you can manage to score a GPU, pretty much anything but a 3090, overpriced 3080, 6900XT, or anything but Reference AMD card would fit in your budget. If you can score a 3080 for less than $1000, you would be doing pretty well.

  2. A pre-built is probably your best option. The main place where the chip shortage is affecting you is GPUs, so if you can manage to score one, you can build the rest of your system, but it take a lot of time and effort to try to score one because they stay in stock for a matter of seconds. Because gaming laptops require GPUs as well, they are still pretty hard to get, though not quite as hard. Pre-builts on the other hand, while stock on them can be a bit iffy, they do come in stock and stay in stock for up to a couple hours, rather than a few seconds. I'd try to find one with a 3070 in it for
  3. Do you mean you want to try to use dual GPU to play games? If so, don't bother, SLI only works with the same card (I.E. 2080 doesn't work with a 2080 Super). Also SLI is dead, so not worth getting another 2080 anyway. For productivity work, it depends on what you are doing, because some workloads can use it, but others can't
  4. I've been in 3 different discord bots for the past couple of months trying to score a couple of GPUs for me and my friends. This is the first one I've gotten from online, and also the last GPU I needed since another friend and I camped out and both got 3080s.
  5. Thanks. This is the second thing I've gotten from them (I got a 5900X for my personal build a couple weeks back), and it seems to me that if you can get an add to cart button, as well as a remember all your passwords/credit card info, they aren't a super hard place to get a card from
  6. OK, that's what I was hoping for. If it doesn't work, I was planning on undervolting it until I could get a better PSU in (or maybe just drive the hour up to micro center)
  7. AMD Direct. They dropped some at around 3PM EST, and I was lucky enough to get a working add to cart button
  8. Ok, I'll keep that in mind. He already owns everything there, if he was ordering everything now I would have him go for a 750w at the minimum, but he ordered these parts since his other system died, and has been using this for the past couple months with the iGPU
  9. I did remember seeing one or two of your posts somewhere else on the forum, so I am expecting it to (probably) be fine, I just thought because intel chips can be a bit of a power monster, the odds of having a problem might be a bit higher

  11. I'm personally on the wired G502 HERO SE (the white version). The mouse I came from was the Logitech G700S, one of their wireless mice before they released their lightspeed tech. I have not regretted it once, since especially if you buy a mouse bungee, the wire isn't really bad at all, and you get used to it pretty quickly. I have thought about swapping to the lightspeed, because at the edges of the mousepad you do start to notice the wire, but then the hassle of remembering to charge it and the price tag 4x what I paid for mine does not make it seem worth it at all.
  12. Call Cyberpower to try to get the remote, they should be able to send you one. You can also just buy the remote on amazon for a couple dollars if you don't feel like talking on the phone (understandable).
  13. I had to do that before, you do need to create a new user and mess with the registry. Usually, unless you use a character that affects another program (I personally added an "!" instead of a "1", which messes with Java). What you do is you create that new user with full administrator access, then you log into that user and log out of the one you want to change. Go in and change the name of the user folder. Afterwards, head to the registry and modify the value "ProfileImagePath" to what you want the new user file location to be. the registry file is located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO
  14. That is exactly how it works. When it's doing nothing, it clocks down to somewhere around 200-300 MHz. When you go to play anything intensive, it will boost up to somewhere around 1800-1900MHz (give or take depending on the model of the card and temps).
  15. I'd swap the case for a P400A since the H510 has awful airflow and (in my experience) inferior build quality. I'd also consider swapping the PSU out for an 850w just for the future option of going to a 3080. Finally, I'd probably add a HDD, just because 500GB does fill up pretty quickly with a couple games. Also if the price is the same, go for the 3600MHz RAM so you don't have to worry about tuning the clocks.
