haha the choice is between a 1080p 144hz and a 1440p 144hz. the latter was in the amazon link I put in
Thanks! Doesn't the higher 1440p monitor have an effect on the frame rate though? The 144hz monitor would actually be cheaper than the 27 inch 1440p one in the link. I am an extreme beginner here lol
One last question. Do you think this monitor would be a better buy for fortnite than a 144hz s4 inch 1080p one?
Thanks for the adjustments! Is there any major difference with the motherboard you swapped? Also is there something wrong with the stock cpu cooler included with the i5 8400?
lol. should he have 1080ti's in sli if he's wanting 4k 60 fps for more than a year or two? What is the benefit of SLI anyway, is it really worth it?
Does he not need a 4k monitor to play 4k games? Or I am being an absolute noob
Didn't he want 4k?
whatever you do dont get that keyboard combo. get the logitech g203/g103 mouse and the cheapest mechanical keyboard you can find, its worth it. also id suggest a minimum of 8gb for ram.
Thanks, I'm not sure if I even have 2.0 usb slots haha
Got this error code when I plugged in the USB - 0xc0000098 - and then about 20 seconds laster the whole thing just crashed and turned off.. sigh.. ill just have to get some guy who knows what he's doing to come along and sort it $$$
Ah yes he's actually ordered the TXM already I forgot to change it on the list. I'll see what he says about spending more on the cooler, but I've heard the wraith cooler that comes with the 1700 is more than ample? You think not for overclocking?
Should be ample for what you're after, BUT, that case has been known to get quite hot when you're putting in 1080Ti's with high end processors making the best use out of them. If it was me I'd look for a case with better airflow - The Fractal meshify C might be a good option. Also, purely preference, but I prefer the MSI 1080Ti.
I should add, he'll be using a doube monitor setup, but his other monitor will be an old 24 inch one for arranging the streaming side of things.
Great, cheers. A 1080 in there for not much increase in price, awesome! Good find with the RAM there too.
Yep just heard the same from another user, seems Ryzen is the best bet. Cool case you've put in there by the way!
Hmm, I'll have a look at Ryzen then. Do you have a recommendation for which to go for in place of the 8600k? Someone found a £409 1070Ti so I'll be pairing it with that. Also wouldn't that require a motherboard change? and maybe even a case change?
Ah great find on the Palit GPU there. I think this is the best he's going to get for what he's after with his budget. Another user recommended the 8700k over the 8600k, and it will obviously be better, but I was hoping the 8600k would be perfectly capable of high quality streaming seeing as it has has 6 cores and threads? If so then this is the final build I'll tell him to get.
Thanks, I went with the 8600k for its 6 cores/threads, thinking that would be enough for streaming, but if not I'll recommend the 8700k! the only reason I've gone for the PSU, GPU and RAM are because the ones you changed to are out of stock everywhere and the 1070Ti price has gone up by £100. I can't find any 1070Ti for £355 anywhere. His goal of having all this by January 3rd may be a bit optimistic, unless he's willing to sacrifice a bit on RAM and PSU
Thanks for the reply. That 1070Ti on amazon is £100 over the quoted price there, and I can't find a 1070Ti for anything like £355 anywhere. Have you changed the power supp,y so it can be fully modular? Given that I'm a noob and haven't built before, will that make it any harder/more expenisve to buy cables?
I should add, that price is already over his budget of £1100, but he says he's set on the 1070 and wants to stream.
