  1. If you can't beat them, join them


    AMD A4 5300 / RTX3070 / RX 5600XT


    don't worry I'm not buying up all the cards I pulled the 3070 from my main PC and the other I had laying around from an upgrade

      before anyone says anything, I acknowledge I'm very privileged to get a RTX3070 period, and have the other parts laying around. I just don't have the extra couple thousand for a folding PC on top of maintaining my gaming PC.

      I don’t think most people have money for a folding rig based on new parts but I though you maybe trying to overtake someone.

      @GDRRileyOnce this whole mining thing is over I might keep the 5600XT inside for a bit just to fold. The 3070 is going back in my main PC.

  2. Yeah. Something like a 5600X or the soon to be released 11600K since you won't be buying now.
  3. Then ask in a couple months. Don't ask now. Prices and availability change daily. We don't have a crystal ball.
  4. At 1440p the CPU makes less, but still a difference. The GPU is the main factor there. At 144hz you'll want strong single core. I'd try to get a R5 5600X, or an i5 10600K, but preferably the former.
  5. I'm referring to MSRP. I don't doubt the 3060 Ultra being 350.... but the 3060? No.
  6. I doubt the 3060 base will cost more than 300. The 3060 Ti is 400.

  8. That's just the 10100 with a higher clock rate. The 10400 or higher would be a better option. Honestly, if you haven't bought, and can wait, now is not the best time to buy a PC. Everything is OOS, and Rocket Lake + lower end NVIDIA and AMD GPUs will come out soon.
  9. Both are relatively quiet, but with a high end enough air cooler you can probably get it quieter than the pump in an AIO. AIOs however, have improved a lot since even 2014-2015 era.

  11. didn't you leave for forever as well? idk i just spent this year gaming and messing around with older PC parts. after LTX19 my interest in forums has really dipped (which was also the reason i dropped the PSU tier list)
  12. I mean, for the last year I've skipped all three. For this year, I commit to only skipping the first two
  13. I leave the forum for about a year.... and y'all are STILL on this?????
  14. i just clicked the notification button for the first time in like a year..... 700 all gone

      It was likely a whole lot higher than that. It seems to wrap around inconsistently, or at least it did for me in the 2.5 years I was gone. 

    2. LienusLateTips


      @ProjectBox153Yeah, in november i had around 900 notifications, it went down for no apparent reason - wanted to get to 999

    3. ProjectBox153


      I left in March of 2018 and came back in September of 2020. I checked in a few times and saw very different numbers. 

  15. 2021 shall be the year i declare war and come back on top on the post count

    ..... maybe.


    but the reputation? that's not happening anytime soon

    1. LukeSavenije


      another year, another day you expect to pass me
