yeah im an idiot 17 year old who thinks he needs crap when he doesnt ill probably just get new headphones and other peripherals

Eeh it happens to the best of us

Urge to upgrade is real, but if you think about whether you need it or not, more often than not the answer is no

 

I'm not one to speak since I spend good money on hardwares

In the future im looking at selling my 2080 gaming x trio and getting a 3080 Strix OC is it worth it for 240hz in games like MW, Destiny 2, Fortnite, R6 and Doom? like i dont think selling my 2080 for 400-500 and getting a 3080 for 850 is worth it. Im also looking to upgrade my 9700k and crap z390 asrock board. and either going with a 5900x, b550 or 11700k, z590 (once out) but in 2020 these parts are still insane and i dont think i really need to upgrade what are your guys thoughts? im just looking for diverse opinions! Thanks

doesnt seem like a huge enough jump to justify the cost in my opinion

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Why are you looking to upgrade, though

 

Does your PC not satisfy your needs?

Or it's a "I want to" thing

Well... Sure if you think spending money to do that is great

 

Personally my philosophy is upgrade when you need it, not when you want it

To find out what to upgrade, find the limiting factor for the games you play and upgrade those, when you feel like you're not satisfied with the result

 

Upgrade to flex is kind of... ehh

I want to call you spoiled, but I have r7 3800x/ 2060 super

And when I built a r5 5600x / 3070 for someone else, I almost cried :D what you need or not, mostly depends on the money you have and secondly on the needs that you need to cover, sadly.

I have seen many 3000$ iMacs doing office work (if not the most of them)
