  1. amd decided to focus on consoles, as for the 30 series, we need to wait for the next eth mining nerf, iirc it's july? i'm likely gonna just wait for next gen. If someone needs a gaming pc atm in a hurry, a 3070 prebuilt is 1600usd, 3080 is 2000usd and a 3090 is 3000usd, though most reviews say the cards look used.
  2. As someone who's been using photoshop monitors to play games since the early 2000s. Not enough consumers care about colors to pay the premium for it. Just look at the QLED vs OLED between samsung and LG. People buy the cheaper QLED even if there's a huge difference (imho) side by side. It's not worth it at all in a business sense (for either the manufacturer or the game devs) Enough people have to complain about 8bit, and that's never gonna happen.
  3. it should boot at 14-14-14 3733 1.5v barring bad luck, i got 16 of those sticks during thanksiginving on sale and all of them ran 3733 (though a few sticks actually ended up with lower scores, the sweet spot should be around 14-14-14 3733 1:1 with 4 sticks. If it doesn't do 3733 then it's likely silicon lottery on the imc, though from reviews it seems like the only weakness of the dark hero is memory overclocking. If your imc actually does 2000 1:1 then the memory should run 15-15-15 4000 easily, but i've seen dark hero that struggle past 3666 with 4 sticks. this is bas
  4. edit: didn't see the budget, better off going used 1080p ips at 160cad. there seems to be several ips panels around the same pricepoints though https://www.amazon.com/Acer-VG240Y-bmiix-FREESYNC-Technology/dp/B07CYJ47JB?imprToken=LadFsi85pw2p7.Nh5.fLUg&slotNum=13&SubscriptionId=AKIAI5D6CCESQM6DOOZQ&tag=hggtables-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B07CYJ47JB
  5. overall i think mem overclocking can be harder than gpu/cpu oc, but it's a good cheap way to squeeze out the last bit of performance on a rig (making a maxed out cpu even faster) Lately for entry level oc, the mobos seem to be tuned for gskill ram more than others in general, while some corsair sticks struggles to even run xmp. Still theres a decent chance that the oc will just work with c18 3600 at 1.4v. Ram oc typically adds another 3-5% to stock performance, though with recent platforms, having a dual rank setup seems to be more important than the oc itself (optimal setup is oc'
  6. single channel at a low frequency is enough to cause a 30% diff
  7. the cheapest option in that case is probably a g9, though i recommend seeing it in person first if you've never used a VA panel before. It should be better than using 3 monitors for immersion https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1578217-REG/samsung_lc49g97tssnxdc_49_monitor_hdr_color.html another option is https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1559233-REG/lg_34gn850_b_34_21_9_ultrawide_qhd.html though it's barely curved and is more for screen space than immersion
  8. i'd prolly recommend 1440p over 4k for a 3070, if you care about colors at all at the low end then there's only 1 choice https://www.amazon.com/LG-27GL850-B-Ultragear-Compatible-Monitor/dp/B07TD94TQF/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=27GL850&qid=1611456238&s=electronics&sr=1-2 the hdr isn't really good at all so i left it off while i had it, but otherwise the colors are best for that price range.
  9. p2721q should be it, but honestly better off with a tv.
  10. 3200 is the minimum, the sweet spot is whatever a particular cpu does above that, 90%+ of zen 3 cpus does 4x8 3600, while 3700 3800 3866 4000 becomes less common the higher you go. As for how much performance improves, 3200->3600 is about 2-3% 3600->4000 is 1-2% .Generally having dual rank or 4 sticks of ram is more important. As a starting point, i'd go with 4x8 gskill ram at 3600 and see if the cpu/ram can go higher one step at a time. if your budget is limited, go with 2x8 cl18 3600, if it's more go with 4x8 cl18 3600->cl16 3600 and so on
  11. if you are able to game with 4 sticks on it, it's close to being stable, i'd try upping Soc voltage first. The worst luck i've seen is 1.19v on soc for 4x8 3600, or just go with 3466.
  12. if 15-20% is near then sure, it could be 120fps average vs 144, The 5600x has a 5% advantage when tuned over the 10600k, and i wouldn't ignore that either, let alone the huge gap between the 3600 and 10600k. i don't wanna argue over last gen stuff but the raw numbers are over there. The 1080p benchmarks where a 3600+2080 ti equaled a 10600k+2080S wasn't just a meme.
  13. 3600 would be a considerable bottleneck vs a 10600k for a 1080ti, even more so if you plan to upgrade your gpu in the future, the 3600 isn't really an option.
  14. stick to a good ips 1080p 144hz monitor, i got 1 recommendation only, aoc 24G2U
  15. 780 would still be "ok" today, that and you can cheat a bit by playing 720p on a 1080p monitor, or 1080p windowed on a 1440p
