  1. Hi, so I order 5900X got it in my basket on lunch after witch I got 3 email confirming my order and delivery date for 6 November. In a middle of a night I got email that i was place on pre order list for 20 of November. Very happy about it.... On the bright side I got my new rack for my server and my PC. Now I'm only waiting for CPU. Got two rails from dell for free will try to use them as they are pricey for what they are:
  2. Any recommendation for cheap GPU that will play 4k 60hz? and I mean very cheap used, old and cheap only requirement to support 4k 60hz output.
  3. I was thinking of adding a GPU to this PC as the CPU hit 100% and is unable to play 4K. As for the link you posted there is no mention of playback only of running server. I did search for a bit before posting so I could find minimum requirements for 4k playback. With no luck as everywhere they talk about running server and transcoding and no mention of actual playback with directplay.
  4. I can't play 4k on this PC without stuttering or black screen so its not true. I don't want to transcode or run a server. Just playback in 4k on this PC from my DS918+.
  5. Is it possible to watch 4k movies in plex on very slow PC? PC specifications: AMD Llano A8-3870K Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H AMD A75 Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Corsair Builder Series CX 430W V2 '80 Plus' Can I add a cheap graphic card just to be able to play 4K movie from my server direct play? If yes what can you recommend only for movies no gaming no transcoding. Thank you and have a lovely day.
  6. Hi, so I just got some of the bits now I only need CPU. My new motherboard: Here we have 2TB nvme, 16gb (3600mhz 16C) and CPU cooler: I will do a full build log as soon as I get new CPU.
  7. I'm getting new CPU in 2 weeks and most of the time product I would buy don't get big discounts on black Friday so me getting it now before the price goes up is a smart move. With your logic I would have to buy whole PC same day as not to leave it as a paperweight. Getting new CPU on release date is never a great deal.
  8. I can return it till 31 of January and in UK prices for PC parts been going up for last few months I got it for £300 and you can't get it for less than £340 now. If I can get the same motherboard on black Friday I will just return mine as i'm not getting different model. Plus this is my first upgrade in 8 years so i'm a bit impatient now.
  9. Thanks for advice. Should I do it now or wait for CPU and do it after testing? As i'm getting 5900X so it may take few weeks before I can test it?
  10. 100% my mistake, I just went with one more motherboard and they give you option to put in one more box. I had never seen a option like that. As i have till end of January to return it I will wait a buy CPU and go from there. Thank you for all the help and putting my mind at ease.
  11. This is my first big upgrade in 8 years except getting GPU a while back. My RAM and motherboard just arrive, RAM came in standard Amazon envelop and inside factory packaging is sealed. Now on to the motherboard oh my, no amazon box, factory box not sealed, label slapped on factory box and damage to box. PICS: I do have to add that motherboard itself looks new and in anti static bag that is tape shut, all accessories and papers look new. I have no way of testing it till I get new CPU so for now I just kept as is. Should I be worried that it got hit and send it back for new one?
  12. Thanks, I though I will ask as this looked to good to be real it's more then £100 off so I was a bit taken back that amazon ones where so much more.
  13. Hi, I'm in a process of upgrading my PC and I wan to buy a new SSD for OS and games. After a bit of research I end up with one choice Sabrent 2TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0. On Amazon.co.uk 2tb version is for £350 but on Ebay.co.uk you can have them new and sealed for £220 to £240. My question is are they real? Or is it a scam or fake? Links to few: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sabrent-2TB-Rocket-Nvme-PCIe-4-0-M-2-SSD-NEXT-DAY-DELIVERY/274478720131?hash=item3fe834e483%3Ag%3ASc4AAOSwqmJfTVwt&LH_BIN=1&LH_ItemCondition=1000&LH_RPA=1 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sabrent-Roc
  14. Hi, after a bit of research this is what I end up with: CPU Ryzen 5900X = £530 Motherboard Gigabyte X570 AORUS MASTER = £336 RAM 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black, PC4-28800 (3600), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 18-22-22-42, XMP 2.0, 1.35V = £60 CPU Cooler Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360 OS Drive 2TB Sabrent Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 = £350 Total = £1276 I decided to get larger SSD and cheap RAM. RAM I will upgrade in future to 32GB with better CAS and frequency when price drop a bit and reviewers will find sweet spot for new Ryzen 5000. What do you think will
  15. Lets leave it for next 2 days and see what AMD announces on 8 of October. If new CPU comes with stock cooler I can use that for now till I get whole PC water cooled.
