Buying a Gaming PC


Recommended Posts

I think it depends on the gpu. Some Nvidia ones support it, some don't (don't they have their own proprietary gsync or something?) My main reason for getting a AMD GPU was that my monitor was freesync.

Working from home today to sign for all my OC deliveries, which all just arrived. So now it's just CPU, SSD and WiFi adapter from Amazon, which arrive tomorrow apparently. So will probably start build

which is less of a problem than it used to be because you aren't running a USB card, a sound card etc   Ordered some computer parts, gone for a Ryzen 7 3700x, 16gb 3600 DDR4 ram, and a mothe

All change, gone for a build much closer to my original spec and told that guy I can't buy the cpu. Dont need it to be that powerful and there is no point having a skewed build.    Feel pret

I had an issue with my PC this morning, turned it on and a black screen and loud fans from the GPU. Took the GPU out and put in another PCI-e slot and it was fine, took it out again and put it back in the original slot and it's fine. PC is on its side now.

 

 

I haven't had an issue like that with this or my previous PC, I suppose it just got loose? I don't really know. My 2060 is a pretty big boy, my previous was an r9 390 which while large wasn't as heavy as this card maybe. Maybe I need legos too

Not sure how many people on here are willing to set their savings on fire to build a new Intel PC, but here is a DF review on the new 10XXX series.

 

 

From what I've heard it is indeed the fastest gaming CPU but you're not exactly getting bang for buck.

They say in the video it's actually 2 PCs. One of them has this ridiculous Intel CPU with 18 cores 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Core-i9-7980XE-Processor/dp/B075XRYMDR

 

AFAIK that CPU may not even be an ideal gaming CPU except for really bleeding edge stuff that actually uses all those cores (Cyberpunk?). Which is why they throw in another system with an i9/i7, higher clocks/fewer cores. The first system would probably be great for other productivity driven users. Video editing and stuff

 

 

CPUs are weird cause some are better at certain tasks and worse at others. Everyone builds with AMD now, especially as they are supporting the PCI-e 4 standard before Intel (which is what PS5 uses for its SSD) and are just better value in general

That was great, Cavill seems like a cool guy. Someone on /pcmr pointed out that he could afford to spend thousands on a super pc that some one could build for him, but he's got something that is really well spec'd for gaming without being ridiculous and he's built it himself (keeping in mind, this would still be about £2k in parts…) apparently he's really into Warhammer total war.

yeah it's cool that the witcher builds pc's, but the main thing i take from that is a question - can't you change the direction of the numbers in software? i'm going to guess you can but don't care enough to look into it.

Apperently not (well you can, but only +/- 90 degrees), instead to have to flip the graphic you want displayed (which is you are displaying sys info, I'm guessing you can't do either). Seems like an obvious flaw.

 

I am tempted by an NZXT cooler (nothing that fancy) but they do look a pain to install

oh good info!

 

i'm sure they're fine as loads of people use them but i don't like the idea of water in my pc, air cooling all the way for me. (edit - although there might already be some water in there but it's sealed away in metal so isn't as bad :unsure:)

Anyone seen this shit

It takes up 3 slots and you apparently are required to have a 850W power supply if you have it in your PC.

 

For who and what and why. During the summer it must be like playing games on the surface of the sun, but at least you will get 20 more fps in RDRII
