Working amazing haha. Thermals on it still look brand new. So we're good! Haha
Yup. 100% it. I'll be picking it up from the guy here soon. Hopefully it'll work out how I'm looking for it to. Lol. Thanks
It came in an omen desktop pc he got from best buy in January. So yeah it's new. 870-224 was the pc model number lol.
Yeah I know. But it only pushed ahead while streaming by 10-20 fps in most common games. the 1600 outplayed the 1700 in gaming alone
Hell I just looked up the 1600 vs 1700.. There really isnt much difference... Not enough to make up for the price difference.. Same for the 8700/k from intel..
Lol. Why not include the 1700 in it too!?
Didn't see the budget question. If I sell this PC, then I'll have 600 to go to a new build MINUS the GPU. I'll be picking up a GPU in about a month.
Okidoke. If anything, Couldn't I just upgrade the CPU to another 7th gen since its the same socket? I know the gtx 1060 is already a good card. But I think whats limiting this slightly is the CPU/Ram. Maybe? Or am I just being silly :P.
Well.. The one I have now is an Omen 870-224. Maybe that'll help a little more. Because I'm unsure of everything else with it besides what I previously mentioned. I'm not sure if or how I can even upgrade my current since it is a pre-built. Is that a thing?
Also the games I'll be playing are Overwatch, BF1, Isles of Nyne, Escape from Tarkov, WoW, Rust.
This is true.. Well. I eventually want to be able to stream and game. Im not exactly sure what i'll need to be able to do that.
And I just noticed the prebuilt only has spacing for 1 size mobo. Blah. Thank you. I'll probably wait it out, like y all said, for gpu's to drop a little. Thank you :)
That wasn't my question though. I can buy a prebuilt i5 7400 with a 3gb 1060 for 640. Or custom build i3 8100 with 1050ti for 550. Is the 100 worth the difference?
In the states. Bama more specifically
Eh, theyre not to bad lol.
That's what I was thinking too. Save the 30 from that and change the gpu to the 4gb 1050ti?
But why choose that over the 1700?
Yeah I am. I didnt have the money time of build. May get a 120 for boot and a game or so.
Yeah I know on the PSU =[. There was a huge deal for it at bestbuy for like.. 20 bucks.. So I just HAAAD to buy it -_-. lol. I do plan on changing it to a more stable PSU in the near future after these purchases.
Ill watch the video now. Heres what I've already purchased with my soon to be upgrades.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
So really it's just a toss up as of right now between the two or which one can I afford mostly at the time? Lol. I appreciate the input! I may stick with the 1700 for right now till I see a steal for the 7700k. Thank you again!
To add to what Evil said.. Every Thursday the store is updated with new items. Check those days for when you wish to buy. The HOT ones sell for a crap ton later in the month (2 or so weeks) when you can resell it and make money if you didn't like the skin all that much.
Thank you. Im still new to the boards lol. Wasn't sure how to mark all of that. Thank you!
So.. I'm not trying to post jack.. But i'm kind of in the same situation as you are Frame. Except I have a pc and I'm doing a major overhaul. Is the Ryzen 5 Better as far as price to performance over the new i7?
Awesome. Thank you for this. I knew I'd have to change a lot when upgrading. Was mainly looking for the answer you gave me. The highest cost to lowest cost and the performance from all low to high. Thank you! :)
Hows the base on SW BF and R6Siege? I loved those on consoles but they've been out awhile and didn't know if the player base is still good.
Yeah.. I'm def. seeing that right now. Sucks because CoD used to be BIG on the PC back in the good ole' days =[
What other games would you recommend? I thought about picking up TF2 but IDK. Played a little of the beta. I'm just trying to find a good, solid, fast paced shooter with a good fan base. Or hell, even a tactical shooter. I'm a big rust player but it's growing old. H1Z1 is more of my liking now lol.
well.. Right now I have a 960 2gb. It does fine.. But it stutters a lot.. I like to have high graphics on my fps games because I can't see people when I'm getting sniped miles away lol. Ill look it up and see what it's about. I didn't know it was that close to being here.
I was thinking on getting the Asus Dual instead.. I just like it more lol! Don't really know which ones actually better though. But I have a HUGE case and feel that a mini one would just look silly.
Now just trying to figure out which one to get -_- lol.
I miss dying light. I need to get the new one..
Oooooh i LOVE unturned! I played it on my ****** laptop and forgot about the game when I got my pc lol. TY for reminding me of this!
Yeah. It'd be nice. Maybe like a 4 player couch type. 4 friends... on a trip to Vegas... crashed flight and now has to decide who to eat first! D:
I'll probably get burned for this. But I downloaded a version right once it was released and I liked the game. Is it an online game now as well or just solo play?
Lol oh I know. I play minecraft as well. Just didn't think on mentioning it haha.
I thought about DayZ. It seems more of a "must have group" kind of game though to me efficient. If I'm lying please correct me!
Okay cool. Im not playing any hard core titles. Just WoW, LoL, Rust, Ark (the only major one). So I should be solid for now. Thank you!
Okay awesome. Thank you for the reply =]
3 or 6gb? Or does it matter really?
Yeah. The mobo is already going out. Or I'm assuming it is with the first two ram slots not working. Tried all 4 of my sticks in each slot and just the first 2 don't work and give an error code.
Yeah I was running on a slight budget at the time of some of the buys. The cpu and mobo were traded for. So they're running old now. Just don't know how the degradation is on a 3770 in time. Thank you for the input
I'm considering it. It's all going to be based off of what's in stock and what the wife will let me spend;( haha. I am getting the 1060 though. I'm in the u.s. btw.
Yeah me too now that you think about it lol. Just 1080p though :). Ty for that
Yeah I just looked up some more benchmarks lol. The 3gb still looks solid for all games. I like it. Thanks to you and everyone else for helping with the decision. Have any recommended models?
I will be playing other games as well... so I feel the 3gb won't cut it for ultra on other aaa titles. I'll probably spend a little more for a 1060 6gb. It's just so good right now lol.
I like that you mentioned the nitro 480. I was eyeballing the crap out of that card lol. Is it true that amd release a recorder like nvidia has? Shadowplay? If I'm wrong correct me please lol.
I may just pick up a second cheap monitor to make my "everything else" monitor. Trying to get into streaming. Having a single ultra wide monitor is a pain xD
It doesn't come with any software because it's a "plug-n-play" monitor. I even contacted customer support and they stated there is no disks nor download able drives for it.
I know right? :'(. Oh well. Ill just have to stick with the snap feature from windows 10 lol
The only thing I havent done on that list is blow the slots out. Also Someone posted on another forum when I was googling the issue that they removed the cmdos battery. I'm probably incorrect on the name of that. But Ill give that a shot after I run a check once more.
