  1. Yes, the power supply will work, they can run basically anywhere in the world (maybe with some exceptions but you're unlikely to encounter any) And yes, a 450W should be enough if you aren't doing some insane overclocking on the cpu
  2. I don't think there's a GPU on the market with 6 display outputs. Using two GPUs could work but I'm not too sure about that. I believe daisy chaining a GPU won't work cause they're only made to support 1:1 socket to display. For GPUs recommendations you could find two gt 1030s and that would serve you pretty well for desktop use. Some of them are even passivly cooled so they won't make any noise. Just want to emphasise how important it is not to get scammed online for a GPU, considering the current silicon shortage
  3. Ah, that makes more sense now Maybe go for the 5600x or 3800x instead of a 5800x to save a buck though, they aren't too far off in terms of performance
  4. I'd recommend more like a 2070 super or 2080 super for $2k. They've also been out for longer so you're more likely to find waterblocks for those cards. Maybe even look on the used market, body is going to call you some 'pc peasant' for getting a used card for a great price
  5. Are you sure you want to go 3070 or 3080 at this price point? Even kinda optimising what you've set out there's still not much room for watercooling in term of price from what I could make on pcpartpicker PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8 GHz 6-Core Processor $248.99 @ Amazon Motherboard ASRock B550M-HDV Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $73.50 @ Amazon Memory Sili
  6. For CPUs, go for a ryzen 3, such as a 3100, 3200G or 3300X, whichever would suit you best. Currently ryzen 5s are a little expensive for what you're getting, even if they are good CPUs themselves Since Intel lowered their prices significantly, you could also go for a i3/i5, such as a 10100(F), 9100(F) or 9400(F) but I recommend not using the stock cooler. If you have a decent one already (that works with a new board) I'd personally just buy an adaptor kit. For GPUs, yeah... If all your doing is browsing the web then using the integrated graphics of a G or non-F CPU would
  7. If you want, I've attached a parts list to this message to give you an idea. Exchange rate makes this roughly 535 Euro but you could (and should) definitely buy items that are a better value in Latvia. Definitely stick to either a 9100F, 10100F or 3200G and either a 1650 (super if its available), 5500XT or 1050ti. Using those you should get a pretty decent gaming experience and it should be fairly responsive in video creation, so long as it's not in 4K. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU
  8. Definitely agree. As much as I like AMD, Intel lowered their prices and they're actually a compelling buy, seeing if you can find one. Better yet, maybe look on the used market, there's some great deals if you know where to look. Also I recommend going cheaper on the power supply unless you really want a quiet one, going for a cheaper cpu, maybe the 3200G or 10100F and switching the GT 710 out for a 1650 super or 1050ti. Either of those cards will be much, much better than a 710 in terms of gaming and video creation
  9. Don't think you can overclock it but if you really want that bit extra, try using Throttlestop and find the right setting for you. You could also try XTU if you want to manually adjust voltages but good luck with that, I believe intel has restricted the download link or functionality of the program to only suported CPU's, all of which are k's or x's
  10. 600W should be alright for the time being. When playing games, the cpu isn't going to be under 100% load all the time so unless you're doing something that puts both cpu and gpu under sustained load, you should be alright with 600W, otherwise spring for a 750W unit. I wouldn't recommend overclocking the either of them if you want to stay on the safe side.
  11. I'm assuming you'll be running a fairly competent cpu with a 3080, therefore 750W should be ok. You should only think about getting a beefier psu (850W will be good) if you plan on using both cpu + gpu under a combined and sustained load. Otherwise, the cpu is not going to be at 100% when playing games so the theoretical maximum wattage will likely never be reached. I could be wrong, the new ampere cards have a tendency to spike in power draw so take what I say with a dash of salt
  12. From what I've seen, dlss upscaled to 4k and 8k look great without the performance hit
  13. I know you said you didn't deserve lowering the settings, which I absolutely get but have you tried putting the game at 1080 and using dlss to get to 1440? I'm not too knowledgeable on the 3000 series but if you can scale up to 4k or 8k then I don't see why 1440 from 1080 shouldn't work Apparently it doesn't look too bad
  14. I also have an issue with instagram where it shows oldest pictures first when I try to send one to a friend, I know this isn't really part of my original issue but if someone could point me in the right direction so it shows recent first that would be awesome I'll provide a screenshot, the first photo is from yesterday and the others are from 1/1/1970
  15. I recently bought a new oneplus 8T, a phone I've been wanting to switch from my aging iphone se 1st gen. I used oneplus' inbuilt application Oneplus Switch. So I got my photos but there's a small problem, some of the photos, particularly images from my previous iphone 4, have defaulted to the date 1/1/1970 and 2/1/1970 (dd/mm/yyyy). If anyone could help me fix this that would be great :)) I've provided some screenshots in case Many thanks
