Nice build mate!
Are you having any troubles with the ram and setting it to xmp?
How is the 5700xt going?
The build won't be happening for roughly 4 - 6 months but I will be looking at a i7 9700k matched with a rtx 2080 ti unless amd brings out a card to match or beat it.
Im currently using a R5 1600x with a Msi gtx 1070.
I don't have the power for 144hz so 60/75hz is fine at this point but if a 144hz monitor can use the lower hz then ill pay a little more for a 144hz monitor.
I was going to invest in a 3000 series ryzen when it came out but they are saying its only going to be a 10 - 15% performance increase over 2nd gen so i already have an x470 board now if an upgrade to say a r7 2700x now would that help if i decided on a 4k monitor? When 3000 series come down in price in 2 years or so i could upgrade to it later.
Would it be wiser to look into a 60hz 4k monitor instead?
Yeah no interest in overclocking whatsoever.
I dont wanna play 1440p at 144hz as 60hz is fine or ive seen some monitors running at 75hz.
Yeah thats true but the 570 wont last anywhere near the 3 yearish mark like the 2 cards i have mentioned.
But as i said i do like to try the new aaa titles when they come out and some i enjoy so i play a whole lot more.
Maybe the rx 590 might be a better card to buy and then upgrade in a couple years when the new generations will far better?
The power usage is a good point and I don't intend to use the rtx for all its ray tracing abilities etc as if i were to use them id get a higher end card like the 2080 etc.
I just want a card that will last 3 years or so on 1080p and alot of reviewers say the 6gb vram is an issue where as alot are saying it wont be an issue over the coming years thats why i looked into the vega 64 as it has the 8gb vram.
Probably around $800 aud all up for the whole build and thats about the most id look at spending less would be better.
Ryzen 5 2400g with a graphics card wouldn't hold up against the i3 8100 or the i5 8400?
Ryzen 5 1600x with a gtx 1070
I did mine well over a month ago now and have only just receieved my am4 kit.
How was this case to build in?
I'm guessing by your post that the cooling in this case is poor?
Would it be any different if someone was just using air cooling instead of a aio?
How was your experience with this case?
I am looking into purchasing it myself as it is dam good looking.
Outstanding write up mate!
How does the beast run?
Hows the temps with that cooler?
Hows the cooler go handling that cpu?
So which would be better the asrock x370 alc1220 or the sound blaster Z?
I'm not really looking at ocing but may do a light one if needed some time in the future.
I have gone with the 6700k to get more longevity out of it over the 6600k.
I also will be trying my hand at some ocing on it. Have never oced before so making sure i have a decent enough cooler for it.
I already have purchased the MSI GTX 1070 gaming x was using it on the amd system.
I also have a Corsair 750d airflow case waiting.
Yeah the system is mainly just gaming with web browsing and youtube watching.
The ram i have is the new led corsair stuff is pretty tall and my current air cooler has clearance issues.
Aio coolers add a nice look to the case aswell.
i also have no plans of having more then 1 graphics card in the system.
Do i need to get a z170 board or would a h170 be enough cause im not ocing anything or having hdds in a raid setup.
How ya finding the corsair fans? Good or Rubbish?
Do i reinstall the nvidia drivers or use the drivers from the msi website?
I also downloaded gpu-z and checked out the sub vendor bit and it didnt say msi it says unidentified 0000.
I just want the fans to run at a good speed constantly to keep everything cool im not really fussed about changing speeds/controlling the fans.
Ah i am in australia. Sorry forgot to mention that.
