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

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

the gt 730 is an outdated and underperforming card, especially compared to today's offerings.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

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Recommended reservoir size"

  • 31 months ago
  • 1 point

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.

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.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Good value for money?"

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.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Good value for money?"

  • 31 months ago
  • 1 point

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?

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
