  1. I get these notifications in the email - lots of great deals to be found for RAM, SSDs, etc Newegg and Microcenter, sometimes PNY, mostly Newegg, though, really! get moar stuff, NO REALLY!! buy buy buy!! good deals on SSDs, DDR4 RAM, next gen Intel CPUs And if you want help kitting out a computer, use pcpartpicker If you want help building a computer, there are loads of videos on newegg and youtube (for instance just go to Youtube and search for "build a gaming computer" and you'll get lots of options to view.)
  2. I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better. Cost for the 2700X - $280 Cost for the i9-9900K - $500 Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users. Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.
  3. AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 3DMark Benchmarks Leaked, 18% Faster vs 1700X & 11% Faster vs 1800X "It effectively replaces both the Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X by delivering higher performance than the 1800X at a price cheaper than the 1700X." related article: AMD Ryzen 2700/X & 2600/X Listed Online, Specs & Prices Confirmed – Launching April 19
  4. AMD Ryzen 5 2400G CPU and Gaming Benchmarked on Livestream It appears that the Ryzen 5 2400G actually ships with the Wraith Stealth (a 65w cooler) despite being communicated that it would be shipping with a 95w cooler (Wraith Spire) (gremlich note: this seems odd)
  5. Several reviews of the upcoming Intel 8th gen CPU's have leaked, and they look like AMD needs to watch out. In the reviews (with synthetic benchmarks here) it looks like the 8700K manages to slightly outperform the vaunted 1800X at multicore. If this is true, the 8700K is an incredible CPU, as it actually manages to outperform a CPU with 25% more cores and a (presumed) +150 euro pricetag, depending on where you live. Not to mention that it manages to seriously outpace it in gaming. Could Intel have stolen the price/performance crown from AMD here? Lastly, the reviews state that the 8600K was overclocked to 5.1GHz. While this is great, the CPU got up to temps of 92 degrees C. Still. Perhaps Intel learned from their critics regarding TIM. October 5th will be an interesting day, guys.
  6. I'm looking to offload some hardware! 1. XFX R9 290X Black OC Edition (4GB) - $100 -- The Black Edition comes overclocked and has none of the temperature issues associated with the reference 290X. I was never been able to get the card above 78 degrees C, and the card has only been lightly used. (Someone made me an offer on an R9 295x2 that I couldn't refuse. ) Performance is equivalent to that of a GTX 1060 / GTX 970. EDIT: This is a 4GB card. 2. Intel i5-6600k (Skylake) - $100 -- This was a part of the same build as the and was used very lightly. I was able to achieve a stable overclock of 4.7 GHz when paired with an ASUS Maximus VIII Hero motherboard. YMMV. I was actually able to push the chip all the way up to 4.9 GHz in testing, but it was 100% stable with a safer voltage at 4.7 GHz. Here is a link to my results using 3DMark's Fire Strike where you can see the chip pushing 4.888 GHz. http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5781870 (Not sure why my GPU is marked as generic on this one). -- And a link to 4.5 GHz: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5777370 Both items come with original boxing. Shipping costs will be covered by the buyer and will ship UPS using whichever method you prefer. Verified PayPal only.
  7. Ahoj, so we got early benchmarks for AMDs new CPU and they look pretty good. It's an early leak so take it with a grain of salt.
  8. This will be a shorter thread than the other two I started. It should just be the basics of building your own gaming computer and I hope it gets pinned. The others are for those of us who have already built their rigs and want to modify or augment. This one is just about building your first rig. I'll have building videos, links, and some troubleshooting advice. Everybody feel free to contribute, but keep it on track as a noob thread. Assume ignorance of the process, but don't denigrate anybody. Usually, Tom's Hardware has lots of good info and advice. Here are just the basics. Cooling options for your CPU can be found in the other thread Computer rig accessories. First things first, how much do you want to spend and when do you want this computer ready to use. so, start here to get an idea of how much money you could be spending depending on the level of gaming computer you want. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-guide-build-your-own-pc/ <-- this being said, use pcpartpicker.com to spec out your computer before you start buying components. It's pretty good at telling you where the best prices can be found. EVGA has many components to build a whole computer out of so check their B-stock page for deals to help keep your costs down or better performance for your allocated money. CPUs: https://elitegamingcomputers.com/the-best-gaming-cpus/ GPUs: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gpus,4380.html Computer cases: Aesthetics, volume usage, and number of fan spaces are important. You can use a micro-ITX or Full Tower. Don't go with a really cheap brand though: http://www.tomshardware.com/t/cases/ This first video is pretty easy to follow. Okay got all those components installed the way they should be? POST beep codes Computer won't post, crap! Time to troubleshoot. Remember these steps: Fault/Isolate; Remove/Replace; Test/Verify. google this: "computer will not post" to find loads of info http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000607.htm https://www.computerforum.com/threads/tech-guide-diagnosing-a-pc-which-will-not-post-or-start.209946/ old, but still relevant If it starts but keeps shutting down of maybe you broke it
  9. So, Ryzen 5 will be hitting the shelves on April 11th. AMD will be offering two 6 core / 12 thread CPU's and two 4 core / 8 thread CPU's all of which are unlocked. Pricing is as follows: Ryzen 5 1600X -- (6 core / 12 thread) // @3.6 to 4.0 GHz -- $249 Ryzen 5 1600 -- (6/12) // @3.2 to 3.6 GHz -- $219 Ryzen 5 1500X -- (4/8) // @3.5 to 3.7 GHz -- $189 Ryzen 5 1400 -- (4/8) // @3.2 to 3.4 GHz -- $169 -------------------------------------------------------------- The lone performance comparison AMD provided was for the 6/12 1600X was multithreaded performance in Cinebench paired against Intel's 4/4 i5-7600k, and it performed "up to 69% better." This is an odd choice given that no one in their right mind is buying i5 chips for multithreaded performance. In any case, if the 1600X uses the same cores as the 1800X (as one would assume it does), then $249 for a 6/12 chip of this quality is hard to beat. All that's left is for AMD to solve the problem that is causing their chips to lag pretty far behind Intel in 1080p gaming performance, especially considering Ryzen 5 (and the eventual Ryzen 3) are marketed towards lighter workstations and 1080p gaming. The 1800X is as at least as good as if not better than Intel's highest end 8/16 i7-6900k in most metrics, so it doesn't make much sense that it lags so far behind in 1080p gaming performance. (It's probably nothing more than an optimization issue. The numbers simply don't make sense.) The sooner they get this sorted out, the better off all of us will be, Intel and AMD fans alike. Competition is good! Source: http://www.techspot.com/news/68519-amd-four-ryzen-5-processors-launching-april.html
  10. At the end of Reverse the Verse, Sean Tracy talked about server and client performance based on how many cores are available: Timestamped Twitch link: http://www.twitch.tv/cigcommunity/v/30598087?t=91m37s Applicable reddit thread where I saw this linked: https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/3xe7a1/sean_tracy_on_i7_vs_i5_in_star_citizen I've speculated about how well threaded Star Citizen will be a number of times on these forums. It seems that an i7 (quad core with hyperthreading) will end up having a noticeable advantage over an i5 (quad core without hyperthreading). He mentioned "eight cores", so that leads me to believe that even octo-core extreme CPUs will see a benefit (whether it outweighs their inherent clock-speed disadvantage compared to quad and hexa cores, I dunno). This is also good news for people with the "eight core" AMD CPUs, like the FX-8350. I doubt they'll be better than a desktop i7 due to their significant IPC deficit, but they may well be better than an i5 or some of the laptop i7s that are clocked a lot slower. I still want a Star Citizen time demo feature! Anyways, this is a great sign that they are taking multi-threading very seriously. The future of CPUs clearly is not faster and faster cores, but more and more cores, so its very important that they make these considerations early, and they are!

  12. The chinese website benchlife.info released the schedule for Intels new Skylake CPUs. Regarding to the schedule the first desktop versions will be available August this year. The CPUs require a LGA1151 socket. Edit: I wrote that the CPUs will require DDR4 RAM which doesn't seem to be true.
  13. Did not see this posted on the site, if it has been then please delete this thread. Nice little comparison, Enjoy! http://2p.com/9647554_1/Star-Citizen-GPU-Test-A-GTX750-Could-Give-You-30FPS-At-Max-Setting-1080p-by-Blake-Lau.htm http://gamegpu.ru/mmorpg-/-onlayn-igry/star-citizen-test-gpu.html Star Citizen GPU Test: A GTX750 Could Give You 30FPS At Max Setting, 1080p By Blake Lau on Oct 21, 2014 1681 1 Russian hardware site GameGPU recently tested what kind of GPU you may need to run Star Citizen at max setting at 1080p and above. The sandbox space sim is powered by CryEngine 3 and you need a gaming PC to play the game if you are looking for best experience. GameGPU was using a PC with Intel Core i7 3970X @4.9 ghz CPU, 16GB DDR3 RAM, and 120GB SSD for the test. Res: 1920х1080 Graphics: very high Res: 2560x1600 Graphics: very high Res: 3840х2160 Graphics: very high The hardware requirements aren't scary, and for GPU, a GTX750 could give you an average 30 fps at 1080p. But since the game features space dogfights and planetside FPS experience, some of you may consider 60fps the best experience, and in this case, you will need a GTX 780 (3GB). They also ran a CPU test and got the conclusion that CPU won't affect game performance too much when you have a graphics card like GeForce GTX 780Ti installed in your PC. Please note that the game is still in development and the current build doesn't represent final quality. Via: GameGPU
  14. The man himself has finally spoke up a bit on hardware and has settled the age-old red vs. green debate! I kid, I kid. But, seriously, he did give some hardware advice for those of us planning to use 4K monitors. Check out the video! (Keep in mind that this is current gen tech.) Summary: R9 290 (non-X), i5 Haswell CPU (I assume he's referring to the 4670k), 16GB of RAM, and an SSD for your computing pleasure. (Don't forget the 4K monitor!) He specifically recommended the AMD GPU because of the free "performance boost" with Mantle, and he said you don't need a ridiculous CPU because the GPU will be handling the load (as it should be). (That's favorable news for me and my FX-8350; maybe I won't have to upgrade when the PU drops!) Enjoy. [EDIT] Note: I assumed he was referring to 4K monitors with this hardware, but he wasn't explicit. He just said that he's using a 4K monitor and loves it, though he has his 4K monitor paired with two Titans in SLI! In any case, you get the idea.
  15. So I've been really interested in Mantle, mostly because it could possibly be the one thing that would pull me away from my love of Nvidia cards. However, after reading this article, I'm not so sure. Thoughts, anyone? http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/175676-amds-mantle-finally-emerges-turns-out-its-actually-for-boosting-low-end-cpus-not-gpus
