Re: What are you playing right now?

World of Warcraft I'm burned out on that at the moment. Got Heroic Argus on farm. Probably pick it back up for the next xpac. In the mean time I'm walking thru my guild master, who lives on the other side of the country, on how to upgrade his machine (upgraded from GTX760 2GB to GTX1060 6GB and is ...

Re: Am I bottlenecked?

3440 x 1440 will tend to push the GPU more than the CPU and a 4770 is still reasonably competitive.

Re: upgrading a graphics card

My recommendation for budget gaming is to buy a used office computer on eBay, which you can often find with OS installed and an i3 or i5 3000 or 4000 series for $50 to $100. Then buy the best GPU you can which doesn't require an external power connector: so an RX460 thru GTX1050Ti. Edit Example 1: h...

Re: Charlie on Intel 10nm

Well a 10nm 2+0 Lenovo lappy was released to the Chinese market and Intel normally starts off its next gen chips with something a little more spectacular than that so it's pretty obvious they are having issues with the process.

Can you verify that the PSU fan is spinning? Actually... no. I think I should really double check. I'm not sure if it blows down through the bottom of the case or out the back. And I don't remember there being dust on the dust filter. There is 140mm fan right next to it using the same filter and th...

Re: RyZen+ Preorder: DO IT NOW!

Sure, the single-core peak clockspeed of 4.35GHz is better than the 4.1GHz that was possible on an 1800X or 1600X, but that's not really what Ryzen is about. If you want single-thread performance you're buying a CPU from the wrong vendor - the $86 Pentium G5600 is going to give you the same perform...

Re: RyZen+ Preorder: DO IT NOW!

The 2700X looks great but I can't justify $329 for ~10% upgrade (vs my current 1700X). I couldn't find a clear summary of the advantages of X470 vs X370? Anyone know? I believe the 400 mobos have better support for XFR/Boost, not sure to what extent but I'm guessing: its support for boosting any nu...

Re: RyZen+ Preorder: DO IT NOW!

Not enough for me to spring from last years R5 1600 build, even if I had the money. But I have a friend about to pull the trigger and with the R5 1600 and R5 2600X only being $50 apart and 3.2/3.6GHz vs 3.6/4.25GHz, the old part isn't cheap enough to make it a no brainer to get the new one.
