I second Gork here. I can't in a good conscious recommend Apple due to it's business practices and exuberant price, but if you're already seated on that train, might as well get what can be synced across all your other Apple stuff.

This kind of hit home. Mine is more common, had a fat white Xbox 360 Arcade model that kicked the bucket a year or so ago. Red Ring of Death, that claims the lives of oh so many of those fat white units.

Bernie v. Trump election is basically set in stone at this point.

As it should have been in 2016. If the Democratic party hadn't straight-up screwed Bernie out of the race, he'd be president right now.

I would hope your insurance shouldn't be ****** since you weren't at fault for this. I'm glad to hear people are okay, all things considered. This could've been messy, I hope your passenger learned a valuable lesson about seatbelts today.

Probably not. I'd imagine a Ryzen 5 to be good for streaming, as that activity will stress your CPU most. If you use a program like Streamlabs and stream at 720p60 with a 3000 Bitrate (Max Twitch Supports) you shouldn't run into issues.

I can relate. I don't see multi-day literary analysis of the floating dagger in Shakespeare's Macbeth (what I'm currently doing) to be useful in my future professional endeavors. At the very least, it gives me an hour to sleep since graded classwork is few and far between. I've been thinking I want to major in Computer System Analysis, so most of my credibility in that field comes to dicking around on this website.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "i5 4670k - still room to upgrade GPU, or wait and rebuild?"

  • 16 days ago
  • 4 points

Actually, the 4670K, despite it's age, is still a great CPU. In gaming, performance is mostly determined by your GPU. CPU is important, yes, but the 4670K is still a fine CPU and you shouldn't run into issues for at least another generation or two.

That being said, I expect you'd be able to run a 1660 Ti, 2060, or 5600 XT without much bottlenecking. Those cards should be able to run Cyberpunk at breathtaking settings. If you're limited to ~$150, take a look at RX 570s and 580s, or see if you can find a 6GB 1060 on the secondhand market for that price. I doubt a $150 GPU would perform much better than a 780 Though.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "1080p144 build"

I'd recommend the 5700 XT over the 2060S at this price point. I've seen it trade blows with 2070 cards in 1080p. I use it for 144 and it works beautifully.

I'll never understand why he insisted on using that damn CPU.

FX Isn't terrible, there's just far more better options available. Maybe I'm nostalgic since I used an 8320 on my very first build.

Jipster before he got the ban hammer.

I vaguely remember Jipster. I remember he had a Red/Black PC build on his profile that was absolutely gorgeous. Used an FX 6300. Wish I could find it on an archive or something.

Already tried all that.

All but one of the Dimms would boot with my pc. What was odd was that the “defective” would run, as long as there were 2 other Dimms were in the system.

I just went ahead and ordered a quad channel kit. Knock on wood, that fixes it.

That’s what I figured.

I’ve narrowed it down to two potential issues

  • Option A: I’m mixing ram kits. It’s possible they’re not playing nice with each other when put into quad channel

  • Option B: There’s an issue with the memory controller on the CPU.

Just when it’s trying to boot. Only lasts a second or 2.

Yes, Ram is installed in the appropriate slots.

I should also point out that the system boots with 16GB in dual channel just fine

Probably not. These things are ancient by today's standards. I think the last Single-core desktop CPU to be produced was a Pentium 4 in the early 2000s

All-in-one package is a necessity for me. I intend on just selling the 1700 and other leftover parts.

But then again that is a $600 CPU on its own

Sadly, I believe the 2920X is going to be out of budget for me. I could give my 1700 a chance at all of this and Upgrade if I need to. It'd just be nice to get it all in one go.

You think so? Not even for the Quad Channel memory? Bear in mind the need for Streaming, Gaming, and Server Hosting.

EDIT; After looking at some benchmarks, it seems that the 1920X has slightly faster single-core speed than the 1700 I'm currently using. And I don't have any issues with it. To me the 1920X seems like a slightly faster, 12 core, Quad channel-supporting variant of the 1700. And of course I will be Overclocking the 1920X.
