    marmour got a reaction from BiG StroOnZ in Planning a new build   
    9700k is overkill for a 2060 and a dead platform.
    If you want intel and think you may upgrade to a 30 series card, get a 10600k.
    If not get a 3600 and a B450/550 board.
    A £50ish air cooler will also be plenty.
    750W should be plenty for a 3080 or 3090 so I wouldn't go higher than that. (Wait and see though)

    There's lots of ways you could cut the price, but none of these components are bad choices really.
     
    If you want to save money, a 10600k or 10700k will perform near identically to the 10900k in games.
     
    If you get the 10900k I would suggest checking out this video so you get a motherboard that gives you plenty of headroom if you want to overclock
     
    Otherwise looks like an epic build. Enjoy it

I'd only get the 2070 if he needs the nvidia exclusive features such as the nvenc encoder or DLSS2.0
    PSU is better with more headroom
    I havent been able to squeeze in a harddrive, but 500GB should last a fair while, and adding a harddrive later is very  simple.
     
    If he wants something that will (hopefully) trounce the PS5, I would suggest aiming for the 3070 when its released. It'll probably be £500, but should offer 2080Ti levels of performance- making it an extremely good deal. However, thats still a lot of money on a GPU so if not the 5700XT is a decent performer.

    My suggestion
    PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $197.99 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $109.99 @ Newegg Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory $66.98 @ Amazon Storage Crucial P1 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $59.99 @ Adorama Case Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital ATX Mid Tower Case $94.98 @ Newegg Power Supply Corsair TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply $99.98 @ Newegg   Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts     Total $629.91   Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-09-02 15:31 EDT-0400   Throw in the 3070 for $500 and you have an excellent gaming system. Obviously check requirements when reviews come out, but 550W should be plenty.
    P400A has much better airflow than the H510. Only get the H510 if you really love the aesthetics, and know that it will run hotter.
    Hope this helps

Or try and find a used GTX 1070 which would give a nice performance bump
    Unfortunately UAE pricing doesnt seem to great. If you can get any good deals, this is what I would aim for if it were USD:

  9. Agree
    marmour got a reaction from BiG StroOnZ in How to cut cost   
    I would suggest something like the Phanteks P400A Digital. Or if you want something cheaper, the Coolermaster NR600 or Phanteks P300A
     
    Dont bother paying full price. Find a cheap key off amazon or  ebay for about $10 and hope it works (usually does)
     
    Otherwise build looks pretty good

    marmour reacted to boggy77 in How much noise can I expect from the p400a   
    that's the biggest source of noise.
    that's the second biggest source of noise.
     
    cases don't do much, unless you buy one that's designed to lower noise (they are usually worse for airflow though)
     
    the p400a is a good case, if you are concerned of noise, get a better cpu cooler

    marmour reacted to AvMaverick in What do you think of LTT sponsored videos?   
    I really loved LTT's car segment, this was a discontinued car, and Linus was enjoying explaining his rationale. I'm disappointed by how people have responded calling this an ad, and am sad that they might discontinue this. I'd say this was the best cinematography in an LTT video by far.
    @LinusTech was on top in narration, great direction by @AlexTheGreatish and great work by the team altogether. I still hope that they do not let go of this segment. Please...

    marmour reacted to Tigerleon in Good time to buy a pre built desktop?   
    I kind of agree with both of you. But for someone that probably doesn't have the experience maybe not money to get a good own PC can buy a prebuilt. That is if fun_two actually doesn't have experience.

    marmour got a reaction from zeusthemoose in Good time to buy a pre built desktop?   
    Thats true, but I think by better value, he means better quality components, which is undeniably true.
    Building your own gives higher quality components (especially PSU and motherboard) and the knowledge and ability to upgrade it later.

    marmour reacted to Stahlmann in Looking to buy 4k, 144hz+, IPS Monitor. Wanting to see suggestions in different price brackets.   
    Your mileage will vary quite a bit. I couldn't justify gambling on a 700$ monitor after my initial impression was THAT bad. I simply cannot recommend the G7 as there are much better monitors for much less money on the market. I'll try to steer people away from this monitor as much as possible.
     
    I can fully recommend the LG 27GN850 and LG 27GL850-B. They pretty much share the specs with the 27GN950 but are 1440p. At 27" you won't gain much if anything at all in terms of sharpness from 4k compared to 1440p. The color performance of these leaves monitors like the G7 in the dirt and the response times and refresh rate are good enough that i didn't notice a difference between these LG 144Hz panels and the G7 with 240Hz. Not to mention they're selling for 450$. The extra 400$ for the 4K model don't seem worth it at all to me.
     
    Edit: A good IPS panel like the mentioned LG monitors will still be a huge upgrade compared to a TN monitor. Even if size and resolution are the same.

    marmour got a reaction from AndreiArgeanu in upgrading my pc   
    RM750 would be good. I would suggest waiting for reviews as 650W will probably be enough
  17. Agree
    marmour reacted to AndreiArgeanu in upgrading my pc   
    That power supply is 190£, and you can't get 3 fans for 10£. Not to mention that 1000W is way more than what he'll ever need. 750W is more than enough, considering that something like a 10900k and 2080 ti draw around 500-550W of power under load.

    marmour got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Will my psu handle a 3080?

    You might want to look into upgrading that CPU though. You'll likely be bottlenecking the GPU a bit.

    marmour reacted to Haro in Can I get an opinion on this overkill PC build?   
    If you're just gaming, a 10600k should be plenty and gamed don't really scale up to 8 and 12 cores, and the XT lineup is more or less a waste of money.
    but for gaming, a 10600k and a z490 board like a gaming edge or a vision G should be more than enough.
    Or you could wait for zen 3 to come out, if you're waiting for big navi, you could also wait for zen 3 and check what it has to offer.
    you could just go with something like an a2000 drive which goes for cheap usually and you can get a 1tb one for a larger boot drive.
    Technically yes, though 4 sticks is more pressure on the imc so it might not be able to get to 3600 at least as easily as 2 sticks, and am4 and lga 1200 cpu's only have 2 memory channels so assuming the sticks are identical, 2x16 will perform basically the same, and you'll have room for upgradibility with a 2x16 kit. 
    though if you're mainly gaming, a 16 gig kit is more than enough.
    But yea over all if possible, wait for zen 3 and big navi and ampere and heck what they have to offer and then make a list.
