  1. I mean, it gets 60 fps in 720p low, and gta v is a pretty light game, due to its age and optimization. It ran on even an am1 apu. Besides, he's pairing it with a significantly faster cpu than the q6600. However i mostly agree with what you wrote after
  2. Well, look at the reviews online and check for yourself if the difference is worth 200+ dollars or not. The extra threads are worth it for multitasking, not that much for gaming only, but it's only a matter of time until it'll become more relevant in that too

  4. You're gonna get it paired with a 1060 6gb and are planning to use it for its multithreading performance? Definitely get a Ryzen 7 3700x then, it's 200 dollars less than the 9900k, has on par multithreaded performance and runs much cooler, so you can get a cheaper cooler, or just leave the stock one on. And then pair it with a good low end x570 board, like the asus prime model
  5. i think they already solved the thermal problems of the thicc 2 by modifying the cooler
  6. Furthermore, isn't the Asus Tuf model one of the absolute worst models?
  7. Hate to break it to ya, but Intel isn't probably going to blow amd out of the water anytime soon, since they cancelled the 10nm projects on desktop and are going to move directly to 7nm in like 2021-2022. On the other hand, Amd is going to release 4th gen ryzen next year with an even better zen 3 architecture, so there's that Edit: Apparently they didn't cancel the 10nm skus, but the next generation is still going to be on 14 nm and on a new socket, they're probably going to be nuclear reactors and not bring much in terms of gaming performance in the high end of the market
  8. For gaming i think a 740 isn't fit for really anything. Don't know about really light old games though,but you could save the money you'd spend on a trashy power supply and get a 1050ti, that's probably going to be fine regardless of the psu
  9. Instead of the 3500 i'd actually get a 2600x if you're on a budget. It's not far from the 3600 in terms of performance and features hypertreading
  10. Oh, i thought you were referring to the change amd made between x399 and the new chipset for threadripper 3000
  11. For a hundred bucks? Idk man, you could probably get it for cheaper and it wouldn't delay a further upgrade for much
  12. Getting them for crossfire is pretty stupid. However, 165 for two cards is a pretty good price. You could always sell one later
  13. How are you supposed to sell a dead old card though

  15. All the extra stuff they put in the graphics card like a better cooler or factory overclocking. However it's not always the case and it's generally not worth it to go that far from the msrp
  16. Why the 1060 specifically then? It's a bad deal now compared to the 580 and the 1660 for the prices it's going for
  17. i mean it's still not bad, but i mostly referred to prime and tuf models
  18. you can't compare oems generally. In this case though all asus x570 motherboards are really good while all low-mid range msi x570 boards are terrible
  19. I think like 300 would be more honest, but 325 is still kinda reasonable Edit: And yeah the advertisement is kinda misleading
