    Voted for Sapphire, but I've found XFX and Sapphire to be one of the best coolers on the red side.

    There are 2 XFX models. Go for the GTR.

    The XFX one appears to be cooled the best and overclocks the best.

    Until we get prices and performance benchmarks done, the answer is "i don't know".

    Joseph Hartness reacted to Faster_Speeding in What do you think of the new Zen Cpu and kabylake?   
    Zen seems promising and I haven't been very interested in Kabylake and I'd suggest just waiting for the full information such as prices and benchmarks.

    Don't know why your having trouble, I can run windows 10 on my laptop with no problems. And its specs are lower than yours.

    Joseph Hartness reacted to Nena Trinity in What do you think of the new Zen Cpu and kabylake?   
    I guess you can go for Zen if you want 6 or 8 cores but Kaby or Zen in quad-core form is hard to say right now...

    Joseph Hartness reacted to Morgan Everett in Neweggs Shipping takes longer than what is to be expected   
    I don't know about in the US, but here in Britain, if you paid for 3 day shipping and the item didn't arrive in that time, I believe you can demand your money back.

    The quad-core version if inferior will probably be cheaper!

    Joseph Hartness reacted to intelCore in What do you think of the new Zen Cpu and kabylake?   
    Yes I did mean to since from what I understand you are saying that one does not have to upgrade to Windows 10 which is true but only until the "Kaby Lake only runs on Windows 10" thing is going to come and if you want newer hardware you will have to go with it.

    People Generally Don't Work on Christmas, that's why your shipping was 4 days rather than 3 days.

    It's the holidays, expect them to have delay for shipping.
    I bought my 850 G2 during the 4th of July weekend, it took 10 days to ship it from the day that i'd ordered it yet I'd paid for 3 day shipping.

    26th was observed as Christmas day, which makes the 27th their "handling" day. And still they never get it right 100℅ of the time.  It'll get there! Next time probably don't pay extra for rush shipping, especially around the holidays. A waste if you ask me.  There is a chance they'll refund the extra shipping charges if it actually takes longer than they told you. Gotta factor in an entire extra day after ordering for handling though (which is lame) 
     
    Your lucky anyways, I ordered 2 longer cables from Newegg for my new monitors a month ago, they were supposed to be here by the 20th and i have been through hoops and emails just to get another pair on the way since I still haven't seen them.  Really sucks cause tracking just stopped once they arrived in my city.  My desk has been a cable covered mess since then
     
    I'll have them eventually, so will you!

    For 1080p get the RX480 8GB
     
    I have the XFX RX480 and a 25:9 2560x1080p screen and can play every game at Max settings 60FPS +

    Joseph Hartness reacted to DeWat4 in xfx rx 480 or gtx 1070?   
    Wouldn't a 1070 last him a very long time at 1080p if it's overkill?  He can also upgrade to a higher resolution later on without upgrading.

    Joseph Hartness reacted to lettuce head in xfx rx 480 or gtx 1070?   
    if you just want 1080p 60fps no compromises, get a well cooled 480 8gb. the 1070 is overkill for that, and the rx480 will serve you better as time goes on with dx12 and vulkan support popping up more.

    if you only play 1080p save yourself some money and get the RX480. if you play 1440p get the 1070..

    Joseph Hartness reacted to toasty6776 in xfx rx 480 or gtx 1070?   
    If you really only play at 1080p, get the 480. That should serve you well for the next few years. The 1070 is a bit overkill for 1080p (speaking from experience). If you prefer Nvidia, get a 1060.

    Joseph Hartness reacted to Johnmakuta in What to get with ~$1000?   
    I have been saving for a bit but now that I have the money I'm not sure what I actually want to upgrade. I thought about upgrading my rig but these are my specs:
    i5-4690K (Definitely not upgrading until Kabylake at least if not Skylake-E) Asus GTX 1070 Strix (I love running older games without the fans even spinning) 16 GBs of decently fast DDR3 (I already have 32 GBs of DDR4 that I have in a different rig that I will use when I finally upgrade my CPU and Mobo) 256 GB Samsung 950 Pro, 500 GB SATA SSD, 4TB Seagate Hybrid drive So really my rig doesn't need any upgrades. My peripheral might need a little tuning. I have a nice Cherry MX Brown board but my mouse is a little glitchy. It's a Mionix Maos 7000 (or something like that). It's good but it feels like every once in a while it misses. My monitor is what I'm really looking at upgrading. It's a 1440p 60Hz monitor by Acer (not sure what kind of panel, it's not good). It does it's job but I have definitely noticed screen tearing and it's colors a little inaccurate. I'd love a G-sync monitor with good color accuracy for photo/video work. The problem with buying a monitor right now that I see is that OLED & HDR monitors are just around the corner and that is going to be amazing! So even if I got one of those amazing 21:9, curved, IPS, G-sync displays that cost like $1000 it would be money ill-spent. 
     
    The thing I originally was saving up for was a VR headset. That dream has died a little bit but I recently demoed a VR headset again and I loved it. I have demoed them before and each time I love it. I really want to play stuff like Serious Sam VR, Eve: Gunship, Eve: Valkyrie, and plenty more. 
     
    So to narrow it down, which of these should I do/get?:
    Buy an HTC Vive Buy an Oculus Rift Buy an uber expensive monitor Buy a decent monitor and upgrade a few things like my mouse and CPU cooler Build a Backup NAS because I currently have little to no way to backup my computer Buy a nicer camera upgrade my console collection (I may be a PC gamer but consoles are fun and have awesome exclusives) Basically there is nothing worth buying right now so I shouldn't do anything with it and just wait.
