  1. So I'm trying to round out my system through upgrades right now, and since graphics cards from this gen are nonexistent on shelves or sites, I'm thinking a memory upgrade would be small and easy. I have 2400mhz ram in it now because that's what I could get my hands on like a year or two ago, but since I went and got a 9700k for my z390 board I'm thinking that it might need higher speeds to do a bit better overall. I remember hearing about Intel locking mem speeds on some chips at some point in the last 6 months or so, but I don't exactly remember which they were, what gen, or otherwise. My que
  2. honestly, i might wait until AMD's "announcement", maybe by then inventory issues will be sorted, and I might be able to find a black friday sale somewhere if I wait a bit longer.
  3. Alright, sounds good and thanks for the help! I'll research pricing over the next few days, then hopefully I'll be ready for RTX without a bottleneck!
  4. Oh sorry, forgot to add monitor specs, with a 3070 or 3080, I was hoping for around 120-144 hz at either 1080p, or 1440p with 75-120hz solid. 3-5ms response would be nice, but not needed. I get it if you don't recommend anything since this is cpu section, but anything helps.
  5. So with the launch of rtx 30 series, I've saved enough to be able to upgrade my monitor, cpu, and gpu. I haven't nailed down a monitor yet, but I'm aiming for a 3080 (finally) with either a 9700k or 9900k. Is there any plausible benefit to going 9900k over 9700k? Currently, I have a 9400f paired with a z390 ud, (yes I know I can't OC an f chip) and I want to get a good use out of the OC capability. Any suggestions between 9700k and 9900k, and if you have monitor suggestions, what would you go for? Thx guys!
  6. I mean I realize that I could save up but I just sunk like 350$ into my desktop, and really just need something good for all around projects for school and maybe some games if i ever wanted to. Any suggestions in that area?
  7. i mean quick and dirty means quick and dirty so idk what else to use hehe
  8. https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-9700K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-8600K/4030vs3941 quick and dirty comparison for semi recent intel stuff, but for 140$ thats actually pretty good, but you can get an r5 3600 for 160$ish with double the threads https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwiQ5fj1j43qAhWQhsAKHQWkBLkYABAHGgJpbQ&ae=2&ohost=www.google.com&cid=CAESQeD2Bu84zX8sHp_ZrngpSz0vDzVn-sA7qxYjVCBR2OdzUYO89lehMbBFVZUDH4XWII--gJxqZe-JI9048YkR1-zz&sig=AOD64_2RJh8en5_egE4Bh4gDVTvyj1WXMA&ctype=5&q=&ved=2ahUKEwie-O31j43qAhWHB80KHS8gAK8Qww96BAgOE
  9. update: better list and edited parts, better and still under budget
  10. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Itsmaverick11/saved/wjfBcf decent part list, under budget, any adjustments just say the word
  11. I'll adjust the extra storage if you want to include a 1tb ssd so fast and big storage, or you could go with the 4 tb of storage for that bigger profile you talked about. Really up to you at this point for storage
  12. If you really do need a good laptop for school, and want some gaming capability along with it for decent money, then this is an option, but like everyone else said, pricing is crazy rn and better deals will show up in the next couple of months assuming the world doesn't collapse in on itself or something. https://www.newegg.com/black-msi-gf-series-gf63-thin-9scx-005-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834155354?item=N82E16834155354&source=region&nm_mc=knc-googleadwords-pc&cm_mmc=knc-googleadwords-pc-_-pla-_-gaming+laptops-_-N82E16834155354&gclid=CjwKCAjw_qb3BRAVEiwAvwq6ViRBnC4tS7aELPs
  13. Ok so the build I originally had didn't work, but I think I have a new build list that's Micro atx that should be good. Also added lots of initial storage because IDK how big projects in architecture can get. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Itsmaverick11/saved/#view=8Hhht6 Good power gpu and great cpu for whatever you need really, and unless ryzen 4000 desktop crazily outpreforms 3rd gen, then this is good for awhile. 3600mhz ram, up to 128gb if you ever need that option, and all within 1200$.
  14. Let me find a build list i put together that should be good for this, then I'll edit based on what you need to have prioritized
  15. So I've had a refurbished 2013 Macbook air for like 6 years now, and I only recently got into pc gaming, let alone upgrading tech overall. I simply can't do much more than have a few tabs open in chrome or run old flash games, and even those struggle to run at all. I found a 700$ system with a Ryzen 4000 series apu in it, the hp x360 I think. Any suggestions for laptops in the 600-700$ range similar to that or better? Macbooks or Windows machines are fine, if any MacOS laptops have dropped under 900$ anyway.
