  1. With that kind of money I’d be looking at something with a rtx 3080
  2. The first mistake you made was reading an Amazon review. People are stupid as hell. It’s a pre built desktop that’s total overkill for what you want to do. You’ll be fine quit worrying about it.
  3. Wireless headphones suck on consoles. Wired is always the better option. I use Phillips sph9500 with a Astro mix amp on the ps5 and it’s been solid. Hell it’s not even bad when plugged into the controller. I avoid wireless at all costs, it never works out good for me
  4. If you can actually get one of these reference cards then yeah it’s a good deal. Unfortunately we’ll see 3rd party cards at $600+
  5. If you want to play competitive buy a real monitor. I’m not trying to sound like a jerk but if you only have a 60 Hz one now the input lag is probably bad on it to
  6. I knew this was gonna be an issue when I saw it. The seagate drive is a rip off too
  7. I know I’m late to the party but I’ll chime in here. I’ve had my Ps5 since January with no stick issues. 2 of my friends got launch consoles and I’ve changed the sticks out for both of them once already. Replacing the stick isn’t a big deal and they aren’t expensive. Yes it’s a pita but I feel like it’s worth getting one. Hell just sell the controller that comes with it new, buy one from a store like Walmart and add a couple year warranty to it. If you have issues take it back and swap it out, no need to rebuy a controller use the warranty options available to you
  8. Swap that I3 for a i5 10400, they are cheaper than what you listed on amazon all the time
  9. I've had more issues with ryzen than I've had with intel over the last 13 years. Sure it isn't best bang for your buck but I prefer having on board graphics in case something happens too. This is the first chip I didn't feel the need to overclock
  10. Got a good deal on a new i9 10850k. BB price matched amazon and used my 10% off coupon so around $400 with tax for the cpu. Was wondering if owners here have overclocked it and had luck or if it's just a high temp mess. I haven't even tried messing with it, honestly happy with it's stock speeds. Using a evga clc 280mm at stock it stays locked at 4.8-4.9ghz and 60c for temps.
  11. Be happy with what you got on that cpu. It's really not bad
  12. I'd buy a used intel CPU without a worry, AMD on the other hand I would worry about the packaging being good enough, pins on the cpu is a horrible idea
  13. You'll be fine with the 10700, hopefully you got that while it was in stock
  14. 100% agree with you on this, the hit in FPS from high to ultra is never worth it. I use a 3440x1440 34 inch ultrawide with a rtx3070 and have 0 complaints, I also don't play on ultra unless it's old like fallout or siege
  15. 1080ti is like a beefy 2070 super, which should be ahead of a 5700xt. I've got a brand new never opened 5700xt just sitting here, been meaning to list it, thanks
  16. I wouldnt even worry about replacing the motherboard. Biggest issue is it only comes with 1 8gb stick of ram. You'll need to get another one but all in all for a pre built if you can get it right now at that price with the 5700xt in it I'd probably go for it
  17. I would go intel here but I'm biased after having issues with ryzen
  18. I just sold a i5 10400 for $120 not even a week ago. The cpu was decent I'll give it that, I used it for a few months until I upgraded this week to the 10850k. For gaming it wasn't bad at all
  19. The problem is getting a new ryzen chip without paying a scalper for it. I was looking to do a new build and ended up getting a i9 10850k. BB price matched amazon at $429 then let me use my 10% off birthday coupon on it. $386 before tax was good enough for me to buy it
  20. IDK how I go this thread mixed up with someone else's that's my fault. It has to be the mount on the cooler, I've done it before a long time ago
  21. Either the cooler isn't mounted right or the pump isnt working for some reason and I'd be willing to bet it's something with the pump not being plugged into the right port on the motherboard
