i have a 240 for my i7 4790k and gtx 980 and it works perfectly fine
i think i'm comfortable with $1200, thanks
while i do agree that apple ****** up with the i9 macbook, it doesn't perform worse than any of the i7 models (referencing this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-p9-QZSdPM&t=1s )
i forgot that hacintosh was a thing, i might look into trying that out on my desktop. are there any issues with stability or anything on your rig (also are there any guides you'd recommend)?
15" macbooks all have dedicated gpus and are in the same price bracket as the zephyrus so idk what you're on about. and i know this is totally subjective but the whole "gamer" look really throws me off
bro i have a 4790k and a gtx 980. even without mac-only software like final cut, other programs like davinci resolve run so much better on mac than on windows it's not even funny. and the whole "good looks" thing is subjective, i just looked up the msi stealth and i wouldn't want to be seen with a logo like that lmao
maybe because they're good laptops? i can edit prores files faster on my 2017 macbook pro than on my desktop. also not everyone wants to haul a brick around
so do you think it would be better to just part it out?
easily $500+, mine is just cpu + 1 gpu and it came out to be ~$450
that's kinda what i was thinking, thanks
that's not the link to your build, select the pcpp icon next to "markup" and c/p everything here
what's a decent size for you? i'll never buy a monitor bigger than 25 inches just because i prefer smaller ones. also are you planning on running games on those other two monitors or just off the 4k one? a 1080ti will do fine for the single 4k monitor, but if you want to run all 3 at once i wouldn't expect a good framerate. anyways i think that a surround setup is just silly bc of the gaps between each of the monitors
it won't make much of a difference. i'd expect that loading is normal, since it's a similar thing w ue4
what engine are you using? for unity there should be zero problems with a 4790, and ue4 should work well too. i wouldn't classify myself as a formal game dev, but i've been using ue4 for over a year now and my 4790k works perfect. idk about lumberyard and cryengine, but those should work fine too. try optimizing your projects since you shouldn't be having any issues with that cpu
it's still throwing ~$70 down the drain, doesn't matter if the build is $600 or $2000. the m12ii is one of the best value psu's i've seen in a while and yes, i have used it.
you're really overpaying for that psu, you could get by with this 520w fm kit for less than half the price https://pcpartpicker.com/product/TgW9TW/seasonic-power-supply-m12ii520bronze
does this mean i'm og??
freestrokes... hundreds of hours of freestrokes. it gets tough but it's really the only effective exercise for improving timing and your overall motion

the gt 730 is an outdated and underperforming card, especially compared to today's offerings. the rx 460 will do so much better for only $10 more. same with the fx 4300 and g4560. also not sure why you got an 8gb ram stick along with a 2gb stick lol
wireless works fine, i used to use a linksys usb adapter and i now the built-in wifi on my gb motherboard. both were perfectly fine, and my ping generally never rises above 80 on na servers. my dl and upload speeds are decent too
actually black is the absence of light and white is the presence of all wavelengths of light. thats probably the only thing i remember from 8th grade physics lol
reservoir size doesn't matter all that much unless you're working in a very small case (which you're not), as it literally just stores excess fluid. if you're getting a combo unit, then the pump is what really matters. don't buy anything less than a ddc, and a d5 would be ideal. other than that just choose anything that fits, looks good, and is from a reputable brand.
not worth it anyways, you're not going to get any significant oc's out of that cooler
is it possible? yes. should you do it? no. you'd need to buy a pcie riser and literally cut your own mount for it, not worth the effort imo
wouldn't that be a small grain of salt then?
just thought i'd mention it. he later pm'd me about selling my entire loop btw
i've got a 980 with an ek waterblock, willing to sell for $350
you won't notice a difference in temps between the two thermal compounds. the psu will be plenty, even if you decide to oc. you should be able to upgrade to pretty much anything besides multiple video cards.
toss the thermal compound, the stock cooler comes with some. other than that i'd recommend this seasonic psu. it's fully modular, cheap, and of solid quality.
biostar just came out with a few ryzen mitx boards, in both b350 and x370 http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/news/news.php?S_ID=299
uh, yeah it can be cheaper. first off scrap the cpu. not sure why you'd think an old low-end e5 would be a good fit for gaming lol. even for "heavy rendering" (be more specific) it's not a good fit. a ryzen 5 would work much better, as it's a solid middle ground between gaming and workstation apps. 32gb of ecc is also pointless for gaming and most workstation apps, and that seller looks a lil fishy. could you be more specific about what apps you're using in addition to gaming?
not unless noise is an issue. 65 c is perfectly fine
not necessary, i have an m50x too and my onboard sound is fine. you're not going to get anything noticeably better than the onboard sound for under 40.
i'm happy wit that
it's only 120 gb lol, planning on getting a 2tb hdd
i play some games 900p (rust namely) for fps reasons on my 23" 1080p monitor and it all looks fine
bronze is perfectly fine. the advantage of the one that i listed is it's fully modular, which makes it a lot easier to work with
odd choice on the psu, $60 for 450w and non-modular isn't a good deal. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/TgW9TW/seasonic-power-supply-m12ii520bronze this is a much better choice imo
anti-static straps really aren't necessary, just be mindful when handling the components. i've built/upgraded dozens of times and never had an issue.
there is no "best" case... there will always be a balance of looks and practicality that will only appeal to a certain population. i personally think that the parvum cases are all pretty great
is the goal of the project by any chance to read off the entire bee movie script?
haha thanks. i'd recommend building in a much bigger case for a beginner, like i should have done. i had to improvise a lot more than i would have liked to and it was very frustrating to fit the tubes in there lol. gl on whatever you choose
https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/forum/2-part-list-opinions-wanted/ is the right place for this sorta stuff
i know that, but many 3d programs (blender is the only one i know for sure) can render in both single-threaded and multi-threaded modes. that's what i was referring to
not sure why you got downvoted, this is pretty solid. the 1700 consistently outperforms the 7700k, assuming its multithreaded
issa joke don't hate
