no prob, glad I could help.
No, its just that funky yellow color, but like I said you can just turn it off with the MSI app.
You can turn off that ugly yellow LED on your MoBo, with the MSI Mystic Light app, nice build.
Thank you, that is great advice, I really am just going to wait for Vega and I'm just gonna upgrade my GPU in the future, I have settled with the fact that my CPU and MoBO are fine and will be good for a few years.
Indeed, like I said, I'm not preordering Ryzen 5 off of every leak I see, lol. Just fun to think about those "what if's", and how things can change for the benefit of us all.
Of course, but it is always fun to speculate scenarios. I'm not an Intel or AMD fan boy in the least, but to see AMD's CPU line up and think of it's possibilities of grabbing more market shares than Intel... well lets just say its good to be a consumer.
That being said, does that mean an Intel i3 2 core 4 thread will out perform a Ryzen 5, 4 core 8 thread processor? Or even a 4 core zero thread i5, keep in mind at the same if not cheaper price point. Ryzen 7 has not been the best at gaming but it not like its AMD Athlon performance, but Ryzen 7 does excel at almost everything else, so I believe your getting a CPU that can just do more period, for a cheaper price, so what if it does not game as well as Intel CPU's, you still get great performance at a great price, which I think is what AMD's true staple is.
oh yea and OS is Windows 10 of course
Looking for any decently priced 1440p monitor 60hz, peripherals don't really matter, I can pick those. Thanks for the build.
I have personally had no issues with Redragon's K552. The keys are mechanical and responsive, and the LED's work just fine. It is an easy plug and play setup, and it works wonderfully in regards to typing and gaming, and for under $50 you cant beat the performance considering it is on par with high end mechanical keyboards.
Thanks, appreciate it.
OK, I added those pictures to my build, you can take a look.
Yes I do, I will try to upload it to my build page, you can check in an hour or so.
This build is on point, definitely one of the best I have seen on this site, I really like the whole setup, and all that cool stuff on the wall, looks like a retreat to a gamers paradise.
I concur, Great keyboard, on par with the high end stuff for sure.
Definitely a diamond indeed, for the price you usually get great products from Redragon, and I have always seen positive reviews on their products as well.
Agreed, love the keyboard, I have the same as well.
Yea I have the K552 keyboard, this thing is quality, love every inch of it, great red LED and very clicky, might want to look elsewhere if you like a silent keyboard. Also have the Redragon Mammoth mouse, it's RGB and has a plethora of features and great software for customizing all of your settings, all for under $35, which should be around the same range for you.
Don't know, never used a G402.
Oh, I did not see you are from the UK, yea I heard you guys don't get redragon products out there, that is unfortunate but I have never purchased off of ebay myself due to the fact I have trust issues with buying used non- warranty products.
Ok, I don't understand what you mean by "shape safety" but the other points are noted. Though the sensor I believe is not bad at all, I don't know how you use yours but for FPS and other task I find the Mammoth to be quit accurate, and you can change the sensitivity and DPI settings as well if your looking for a more customized feel.
Try this one https://pcpartpicker.com/product/VhkwrH/redragon-keyboard-k552. It is the Redragon K552, with red backlighting and Cherry MX switch equivalent. I have this keyboard and am not disappointed at all, very good quality, clicky and responsive. There are also breathing pattern effects and brightness settings as well.
I Have the MSI RX480 4 GB gaming X and it is a great card, the other cards that are on par would most likely be the spire nitro an the XFX version, but I got the MSI version because it runs cooler than most cards, and the factory overclock is decent, all cards will get the job done, it is really up to what you prefer in the slight performance changes, cooling, and looks.
or an R9 280
A closer match would be an RX 460 compared to a 1050 TI.
Great info thank you
Especially with Vega around the corner, seems like a waste of resources to me. Why make a bunch of GPU's you will most likely not sell.
True, but is was 69.99 at Best Buy, semi modular and 850w, I could not pass that up.
Why not the whole united states military armory?
or an M16 mounted on the top.
I'm in the Military, and I can appreciate a good ol' fashioned ammo can, love the smell of gun powder in the morning, now all you need is RAM with bullet casing shaped heat sinks!!!!
So far I have looked at reviews and the top three 4GB RX480, Sapphire Nitro+, XFX RS and the MSI Gaming X. Sapphire's GPU is gonna have the best out of box performance due to its high factory overclock but does consume more power than the other two @ 75 watts. I hear that the XFX has the best manual overclock but you will have to do your own research on that one. MSI gaming X runs cool and quiet on decently high loads. I personally choose the MSI Gaming X 4GB. I did not see huge jumps in performance between the three GPU's that I think would have been noticeable in gameplay. I play BF1, BF4 and Titan fall 2 @1080p max settings and average about 90-100 FPS for all three games. You can play almost any game on max setting @ 1080p with all these GPU's, it really comes down to personal choice and looks.
I have the Same RX480 you are referencing and I have no issues at all with it, on load gets up to 65C but never past that, but I do have ample cooling in my case. I have it paired up with an i5 7500 and an AOC 1080p 144Hz Freesync monitor and the game play is liquid smooth, I was having trouble getting the monitor to 144Hz but I forgot to download the latest AMD drivers for the GPU so that was my fault, but after that everything works great. Played BF1 1080p on ultra; 98 FPS, BF4 1080p on Ultra; 104 FPS, Titan Fall 2 1080p on max settings; 95 FPS, Smite 1080p max settings; 120 fps. Very smooth gameplay, and very affordable, card is pretty large too, so be sure to have room in your case, stays pretty silent for the most part but I don't really notice because I wear a headset. I will place a link to my build if you want to look, take care.
Yea no problem, I am very pleased with the performance of my PC, games look beautiful with great frame rates, I do recommend the monitor featured on my build if you don't have a good one already, it performs great at a low cost.
I would definitely go with the RX 480, It is pretty even with the GTX 1060 but when it comes to DX12 and Vulcan it surpasses the GTX 1060 on most accounts. Then you have Freesync, which is far cheaper and is pretty much the same as Gsync. Last the RX480 generally runs a lower cost than the GTX 1060 while basically getting the same if not better performance. If your aiming for 1080p gaming go for the 4GB, if you want to do Crossfire in the future then go with the 8GB.
I heard you, but my internet company is installing a port for free, no need for me to do any back breaking work. Thank you for the comment.
Sweet I published a build about a week ago, so I will look into it.
No worries, my internet company just told me they can install it for free, problem solved.
Sweet, I just called my company which is Hargray, and they told me if it is my first Ethernet port they will add one for free, any additional one is $75, free sounds good to me!!!
Great info, really appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions.
Hey there, I got those benchmarks you requested @ 1080p resolution
Battlefield 4: I averaged 110 FPS, Ultra Settings
Battlefield 1: I averaged 90 FPS, Ultra Settings
Fallout 4: I averaged 83 FPS, Ultra Settings
Using the DirectX 11 API, Windows 10 pro OS
I don's have League, but I did run Diablo 3 on max settings and that ran at about 128 FPS as well as SMITE on max settings which ran at 90 FPS. There were no issues with any of the games at all, CPU hit 33C Idle and about 48-52C on load, GPU is at around 44C Idle and 59C on load. I played each game for about an hour back to back. You can start to hear the RX480 when the temps get to the mid 50's to low 60's, but not very loud at all. It all looked and felt great, buttery smooth gameplay. I was very pleased with the performance as I'm sure you will be if your build is similar to mine. Can't wait to try more games, hope this helped.
thanks bro appreciate it
Sure, I'm still in the process of loading all my software but when I'm done, I will see about running those benchmarks, was my intention after all.
Yea I saw that one, I think it was up against Some Intel i7 CPU, they were playing League of Legends or some sort of MOBA while streaming, RyZen certainly looked buttery smooth compared to that Intel CPU. Pretty cool to watch, but I am awaiting on other reviews from independent sources, I want to hear it from the "people" and see what my options are.
I think Intel will wait a few months before dropping prices at a dramatic rate. I speculate that they will want to see the sales averages between their CPU's and AMD's CPU's before touching their pricing.
Yea, i wanted to but the cables seem a little to stiff for me to bend it as such, i don't mind it though, and at least it's not ketchup and mustard.
LOL, I agree, looked too ugly, thank you, I'm sure I will have a great experience with mine, building was fun as well.
