  1. >shows HL1 headcrab >labels as "Half Life 2" >"these graphics do not look that much better than Half Life 2" You're comparing a game from 2004 to one from 2020 and saying it doesn't look that much better???
  2. 64GB of ram is wayyy overkill for gaming, get 16 gigs A 3800X is equivalent/beats performance of 9900K at 1440p and is cheaper and cooler You don't need NVMe for gaming, it only makes loading times 1 second faster vs SATA watercooling is not for beginners and isn't much if at all better than air cooling 2080 super is only slightly better than a 2070 super whilst being way more expensive PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 3.9 GHz 8-Core Processor ($373.34 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE ATX AM4 Motherboard ($184.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair
  3. 1 Logitech G203 Prodigy 2 Gaming & Media 3 Lighter 4 3.5 5 No 6 Wired 7 Yes 8 1 9 4.5 10 Matte 11 4 12 No 13 Yes (however i prefer static rather than RGB cycling) 14 After long-term use (several hours) palms become sweaty and make mouse usage uncomfortable
  4. That 3570K can still last a while, the 8Gb of ram and 1050Ti could be a problem though. Lower the settings since the 1050Ti can only run recent AAA games (2018 or newer) at medium settings. Maybe find a used 1060 6GB, and find a well reviewed 2X8 16GB DDR3 ram kit.
  5. IPS has better colors and viewing angles (colors stay the same if viewed from an oblique angle), TN panels are the opposite however cheaper, VA/SVA panels are a good in-between (SVA is better than VA). IPS is best for purely watching movies/video, VA and TN are better for gaming
  6. CPU first then GPU later on, for now you can pick up a Ryzen 5 1600AF with a B450 board for around 160-170$ and play at lower res/graphic settings to help your 1060 keep up.
  7. I also use the Wraith Stealth and, yes it is very quiet (i can barely hear it over my 19Db case fan) and is perfectly viable if you don't plan on overclocking.
  8. AMD Athlon X4 950 (@ 3.8 GHz) --> R5 2600 (@ 3.7GHz) G.SKILL Value 1x8GB 2.4 GHz --> Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3 GHz Hitachi 7K2000 2TB --> Samsung 860 EVO 1TB (SATA3) HP W1707 17" 1440x900 60Hz --> HP W2007 20" 1680x1050 60Hz --> MSI MAG241C 23.6" 1080p 144Hz Logitech C270 (using the built-in mic) --> Fifine 669B
  9. Yes it is being bottlenecked. Get an R5 1600AF with a B450 board for around 170$, if you're on a smaller budget, go for a used 6th gen i7 and keep your mobo
  10. Keep the R9 390 and save that 200-250 for a CPU/Mobo/RAM upgrade, a R5 1600AF, a B450 board and 16GB 3/3.2GHz ram would cost approx 200-250
  11. 3900X. According to PassMark the 3900x has better single core and (obviously) better multicore performance. To my knowledge there aren't any major bios issues (correct me if i'm wrong) and the CPU should infact be more secure than the 9900K. According to the comparison you linked, the 3900X scored top in 2/3 of the benchmarks, only beat once by 0.06% from an AMD CPU.
  12. 1.7K hours on GMod, (probably 150-200 hours AFK and loading though) 1.4K on Unturned (although I've recently quit, I'm currently waiting for the sequel) 190 hours on Blockstorm (however the game basically died and I've quit) 140 Hours on Tower Unite (starting to get back into) The rest of my games i have around 50-100 hours in, theres few i occasionally play if at all.
  13. This cooler design has huge potential and I'd love to see it maybe even passively cool 95W CPUs (within a reasonably small size) in the near future. It amazes me that this is equivalent if not better than watercooling and CHEAPER than a 280MM or bigger AIO with the MSRP being 120 USD and most (good quality) 280MM+ AIOs are over 140 USD. Also take into account no pump required and thus better reliability.
  14. my loud, prob used 2TB Hitachi HDD with an SSD, likely a Samsung. like seriously this thing is about 3 or 4 times louder than my case fans when reading/writing.
  15. If a replacement mobo is $285, you might as well get a new mobo/ram/cpu for ~$300 PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($139.99 @ Amazon) Motherboard: ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($78.95 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($67.98 @ Amazon) Total: $286.92 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-11-23 21:29 EST-0500 Slight FPS increase and greater multitasking/editing ability Could also sell the ram/cpu to get a 3
