  1. To be honest, my mileage varied on this as I have experienced slapping my RX 570 on my then i5-4440's lower PCIE 3.0 X4 slot due to me busting the top one. I did experience dips in RE2 Remake, GRID 2019 or AC Odyssey even however no problems on most other games I play. That is on a B85 board so IDK what is the mileage on newer or other budget boards. Though I can still feel the latency in racing games though despite no FPS drops on my end. That is my experience as I would not even dare slapping a GPU in the lower x4 slot unless I have to.
  2. Once your chosen drivers are installed, Windows should basically back off from finding a new one as a driver has already been installed by the time the internet is connected once again.
  3. For production especially CAD, most of them favor threads and cores over frequency as they tend to be multi-threaded. Video editing software likes more threads as well. For a gaming-first build, though even the 3500X eats the 2600 for breakfast in some games, it is still a very viable build for anyone seeking a 6c/12t CPU that does not break the bank. Even 3300X can trade blows with 3500X due to the former's single CCX design, in gaming anyway. As for the 3500X availability, they are sold everywhere in the Philippines (online or IRL stores), where I live. But like any Ryzen sold here
  4. For anything involving CAD, the 2600 is a very good deal, especially those 12 threads and if you like to slap a 5600XT with it. The 10100F if you can find for it is a great 3300X alternative, though I'm not sure if there is a performance hit for 5600XT. I can recommend a 3500X as well if you can find it however I heard it is quite rare in the US (available as hell and quickly sold where I live). Just keep in mind to get quality PSU for even a budget build for extra peace of mind.
  5. It's going to be quad cores as a minimum for me in 2020 and onwards as even some basic apps from my experience are starting to take advantage of more than 2 or 4 cores even. Any decent quad-core will do for most office jobs.
  6. You can try uninstalling and installing the GPU drivers without any internet connected. That is how I solved that auto-install thingy at least from my end. It should work whether its Team Green or Red. From my experience Windows 10 fetches for drivers in when connected to the web.
  7. Should not affect any midrange GPU is put on the PCIE x4 slot, as something like a 2080 Ti may have its performance hit when placed there.
  8. I would say the Gigabyte one since the cooling is quite good for the card. Got mine for $135 in USD last year for my then i5 build. If your case is something like a generic micro-ATX/any case with not-so-good airflow or any mini-ITX, that Pulse ITX is good as well. RX 570s in that form factor is quite rare at least from where I live
  9. For AMD: I would say most if not the entire RX 500 lineup. RX 570 onwards at least. Or a 5600 XT/5700 for Navi. For NVIDIA: GTX goes to 1660 Super while RTX the 2060 probably. A used GTX 1070/1080 or 970 works as well. Those are my suggestions though.
  10. The 1660 Super option should be good. If budget allows, you can have that with the 3500X.
  11. If your budget allows and the M.2 slot can support it, go all out for an NVME drive. Any XPG/WD/Samsung/Crucial NVME drive can do. Otherwise an M.2 SATA will suffice as it is already beating HDD in almost anything expect price/GB. Either way, make it an OS drive for maximum benefits. Add: If your budget allows also, get an SSD model with a DRAM cache.
  12. If you can, please make it into your C:/ or boot drive if your setup can have a slot for it as it can make your system more responsive and less annoying even if you won't notice any loading speed decrease or the like. Trust me, you will not regret it if you can.
  13. It looks decent in my opinion as far as Cyberpower goes. I agree. Worse price/perf for GPU. You can make other quotations to other pre-built specialists to see if they can pull off a better price for your friend's rig.
  14. If he only does the usual PC and/or gaming stuff then a good air cooler like most Cooler Masters and Deepcools will do. If he is a defined disciple of K1NGPIN or any other notable overclocker then a great AIO like most of the Corsair or Cooler Master AIO offerings will suffice. ADD: Damn CyberPower's quotation is hard af to read
  15. I suggest to your friend that he must build a PC to maximize that massive budget. Should he will be insisting on a pre-built, I suggest checking out OriginPC or Digital Storm. At least it is something that is customized from the factory.
