  1. Custom Built, mainly for gaming, in the future I'd like to do streaming on Twitch & Youtube, perhaps make/edit videos for Youtube also. Current System: CPU: Ryzen 3 1200 OCed to 3.9GHz CPU Cooler: Wraith Spire LED/RGB (from Ryzen 7 2700) Motherboard: ASRock AB350 Pro4 (BIOS P3.20) Memory: 16GB (2x8GB) ADATA XPG Z1 3000MHz (running at auto 2666MHz due to unstable with XMP on, either CPU IMC or Motherboard BIOS causing Memory Stability Issues with XMP on) Storage: 2TB Seagate 7200RPM 3.5" HDD, 256GB WD Blue 2.5" SSD Video Card: ASUS Strix OC GTX 1070
  2. I currently have a Ryzen 3 1200 & ASRock AB350 Pro4 in a Bitfenix Outlaw, Looking at possibly getting a CPU, Motherboard & Case upgrade, either new off Amazon or used off Kijiji, eBay or r/CanadianHardwareSwap, perhaps Amazon Warehouse Deals if they have anything. I'm thinking around Black Friday/Cyber Monday at the earliest depending on deals/availability & how Zen 3/Ryzen 5000 release on November 5th will effect prices & supply. When it come to what to get, I'm thinking Ryzen 5 2600 with a B450 Revision such as the MSI MAX or upcoming ASUS II or just getting a X570 (consideri
  3. It's been 1 year since the "cheapest 144hz monitor on amazon" video, I was wondering if it would be possible to get a revisit a year later? I was checking amazon.ca & came across the HKG GF40: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B07DJ4DS6B/ It's $240 CAD, but there's a $15 coupon that brings it down to $225, also no tax, because of no tax it would be cheaper then the Sceptre C248B-144RN (Possibly the same C24 that was reviewed a year ago?) that would be like $5 less before tax.
  4. Forgot to mention as it never showed up in my search though I have it in my watch list (likely never showed up due to being out of stock currently), but Newegg Canada got/had a Refurbished Gigabyte GTX 1660 OC for $252+$10 shipping for standard Shipping from Outside Canada, item location is from the USA: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/GIGABYTE-GeForce-GTX-1660-DirectX-12-GV-N1660OC-6GD-6GB-192-Bit-GDDR5-PCI-Expres/173990315952 Checking the newegg.ca site, for that price (before tax & shipping) I could get a New GTX 1060 3GB, GTX 1650 Super or RX 580 8GB, a few dollars extra would be a RX 550
  5. I don't have a licence/vehicle so I don't have to worry about that, I normally take public transit, fare would be $3.25 & get a transfer that lasts 90 minutes that depending on how far I go would only be enough for 1 way so $6.50 max to take a trip to get something locally unless they are willing to meet somewhere closer to me. My current RX 470 is 1 of 2 I got for $114 total in December 2018/January 2019, Bought 1 off eBay but when it arrived it was not as described as it had a mining BIOS that seller had made no mention of, filed a INAD case, seller responded & apologized say
  6. Mainly gaming, though would like to do streams on twitch/youtube & record videos & edit using windows movie maker or similar free video editing software for youtube at some point. Just thought to check eBay, for what I could possibly get for my $150 CAD+shipping, budget: there's a plethora of RX 480/580 4GB cards worldwide, the 8GB cards would be out of budget unless I stick with 2x4GB 2400MHZ RAM that would increase budget to $200-250 CAD+shipping. cheapest that's not a RX 480/580 or GTX970/1060 would be a GTX 980/1070/1660 for $189 USD ($266.05 CAD) and up+shipping Cheapest
  7. Ryzen 3 1200 OCed to 3.9GHz, planning on upgrading, maybe to a Ryzen 7 1700 unless I can find a Ryzen 5 2600(X or non-X). 2x4GB 2400MHz RAM, plan on upgrading to 2x8GB or 4x4GB 2400MHz+
  8. Looking to upgrade my MSI Armor OC RX 470 4GB & looking for opinions on price/value for my budget of $150 CAD+ shipping max So far I've been offered some GTX 970s, haven't been given a price or variant for 1, but 3 with prices, a ASUS Strix for $150 (+shipping, unless he makes a trip to my area), Gigabyte G1 for $120+shipping & a EVGA ACX 2.0 for $100+shipping Was offered a ASUS Strix RX 580 for $180 firm +shipping but ended up selling to someone else, the other offer so far was a Zotac GTX 1060 3GB for $150 (+shipping?) There was also a combo of a Ryzen 5 2600X for $150
  9. Just came across this video of the 2600X vs 1700: Showed the 2600X was better by a slight-small margin at 1080p, less so at 1440p & par or negligible difference at 4K when paired with a 2080Ti to get the most out of the CPU so what I'm wondering is if I can get the 1700 for $140 shipped while the 2600X would be $10(maybe + shipping) extra, would it be worth holding on for the 2600X or just grab the 1700, more so considering the 1700 got a RGB cooler (Wraith Spire LED) while the 2600X don't & with me wanting a RGB cooler, would need to buy a Wraith Spire LED, Prism or Max
  10. How do they compare to the 3100? With the 1400/1500X at $130-134 the 3100 after tax would only be $36-40 more? Edit: on r/CanadianHardwareSwap, keep in mind I was offered a 1700 for $140 shipped, so $6-10 more than the 1400/1500X & $30 less than the 3100
  11. Checking ebay.ca for Buy it Now, cheapest (Desktop, not mobile) Ryzen 5/7 CPU (not box or cooler only) is the 1400 used from China for $95 USD/$134 CAD: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/AMD-Ryzen-5-R5-1400-R5-1500X-R5-1600-R5-1600X-Socket-AM4-CPU-Processor/233361700310?hash=item365570f5d6:m:m7X6VYuDrNGLvPh2q20YLrw&var=532915948556 https://www.ebay.ca/itm/AMD-Ryzen-5-R5-1400-R5-1500X-R5-1600-R5-1600X-Socket-AM4-CPU-Processor/233361700310?hash=item365570f5d6:m:m7X6VYuDrNGLvPh2q20YLrw&var=532915948556 Checking Kijiji (Canadian eBay Classifieds/Gumtree) across Canada,cheapest
  12. Gaming mainly, may end up doing some streaming on twitch/youtube & may record & edit a few videos for youtube using windows movie maker or similar free video editor Of the new CPUs for better single performance for sims that need it (Such as iRacing & FSX), it's the cheapest & therefore closest to my budget. I have a post in the classifieds section here of what i'm looking for:
  13. That's not a bad price, $165 USD=$232ish CAD, checking ca.pcpartpicker.com, vuugo & shoprbc got it for $256.25, Memory Express is out of stock for online for $260, same price as Canada Computers, newegg.ca got it listed for $280 & amazon.ca got it back ordered, due in stock May 29th for $280
  14. CPU is just 1 thing, I also plan on a RAM upgrade as I'm currently using 2x4GB of 2400MHz and a GPU upgrade to replace my RX 470 4GB that runs at 90ish*C under load, thinking/hoping $350-400 Canadian for CPU+RAM+GPU $85 USD=about $120 CAD currently, checking amazon currently, on amazon.com (US) cheapest is $152.50 USD=about $214ish CAD from 2 3rd party sellers both fufilled by amazon, both back ordered, 1 due in stock May 15th, the other is June 15th, on .ca (Canada) Cheapest is $241.41 from a 3rd party seller not fufilled by amazon, and then amazon warehouse deals got one liste
  15. Looking for a Used CPU to upgrade from my Ryzen 3 1200 OCed to 3.9GHz on a ASRock AB350Pro4 with Wraith Stealth Cooler, Just wondering what the value would be like of some options I've seen compared to the upcoming Ryzen 3 3100@$150+HS=$170 Ryzen 5 2600, was offered for $110+shipping but was sold before I could pull the trigger Ryzen 5 2600X, Saw some listed for $150-180, thinking maybe $140+shipping max would be a good price unless I can get it for the same price as the non X I was offered? Ryzen 7 1700, Currently got a offer of one for $140 shipped Ryzen 7 2700X, Offered
