  1. Ahh, that's why the ARGB is in brackets because it's either/or? thanks for all your help
  2. I just found this offer: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/850w-thermaltake-toughpower-gf1-full-modular-80plus-gold-sli-crossfire-single-rail-70a-140mm-fan-atx is the ToughPower GF1 the same as "Thermaltake | Toughpower GF1 (ARGB)" from the Tier List?
  3. I did that for my EVGA Supernova G2 850w but I get just black screen complete resets sometimes on my PC and it's difficult to tell if it's my 5700XT having driver issues or a PSU brownout
  4. Oh now I see what the old S tier is like this "Gold - best units in the tier " in the A- Tier now, is the Corsair RMx 850w 2018 (v2) for £142 a good option? it seems a lot of the other best units are the 1000W Titanium+ and it doesn't seem like that power is necessary anytime soon
  5. There's so many subtle differences in numbers it's tricky isn't it, I see Corsair TXM listed but it says 2017, does that mean the TX850M that's also around £108? Also what's this lot mean?: EVGA | Supernova G2(L) / GS =>850W / P2 / PS / T2 (<=1200W/1600W) oh also on Corsair, which is why I didn't see the RM850, what does it mean "RM Gray"?
  6. I don't strictly have a budget but also know I don't need to spend £250 on a 1500 watt PSU I'm never going to go Dual GPU but I could see this new 12pin GPU power business leading to fairly high draw single cards in 5 years so not against going 850-1000W, currently running 3900X and 5700XT and some HDDs etc Ahh, I meant Tier-A from here, not fussed about the 80+ rating
  7. Supplies seem a bit limited on Ebuyer and some other sites, has anyone been down this road recently and if so which did you go with? Thanks,
  8. Gaming PC for a friend - mostly CS:GO and some other Esports titles, some other newer games, nothing AAA from this year at max settings, another friend is still on a laptop so that's a bit of a limiting factor 1080p, 144hz in esports games, lower settings otherwise £800~ England https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/C7HCy4 That's the base build, the Wifi AX200 seems worth it on the motherboard as an expansion card is about £35 and it leads to a better motherboard with 4x memory slots the questions I have are GPU: We've picked up a used GTX 1070 for £180 a
  9. I've had some issues with my 5700 XT, though the last 6 months of drivers have resolved most of them, that's the only reason I was a little hesitant, this is looking pretty solid now, thanks guys! and only £9 over budget PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor £159.99 @ AWD-IT Motherboard Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard £64.95 @ AWD-IT
  10. Thanks for the comments and tips guys, this is actually for a friend, I think the £1K is a stretch so I'm thinking of dropping down the GPU slightly, that means 1660 or 2060? I've got a 5700XT myself, maybe that would be a good compromise for him? I've added the TXM thanks for that, it's nice and high on the tier list for a reasonable price Som3a I know samsung are often more expensive, what 500gb 2.5" SATA ssd would you recommend? I know Cache is important so maybe Crucial MX500?
  11. Budget (including currency): £800-1000 Country: England Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Hell Let Loose, PubG, Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Edit: read a few things more and made some changes to the list I saw on Ebuyer's page the Gigabyte Board does support Ryzen 3 series, do you think I'd still need to flash? I don't have an earlier ryzen CPU to use I've put this together but I hav
  12. I'd rather just get them onto something like Teamspeak or Mumble, do you have experience with either?
  13. It's a laptop with an i5 and a G930 or something, PubG is a real stretch for it
  14. Oooh, they definitely won't be able to open chrome etc while gaming, is there a lightweight standalone chat program that'd be more suitable before I get in amongst teamspeak?
  15. I've got some friends playing on laptops or older PCs and Discord and Steam chat gobble too much CPU, either we can't hear them if Discord is on "Low" or at least they sound like robots and drop words, or if they up the priority it makes games like PubG stutter etc. I can host my own server for free so thinking TeamSpeak but are Mumble or Vent lower CPU usage for clients?
