    Gaming CPU - Best value

    Spartacus09 Thank for the info... I figure it was gonna run pretty hot but sounds like its a scorcher. I ended up finding a 5600x on the forums for slightly over MSRP so I bought that. I think that should be fine with the case I have and I can probably still use my Hyper 212 Evo to cool it if I...

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I may regret it but I cancelled the 5800x. Just doesn't seem like a great buy. I honestly rather get a 5900x if I am gonna be spending that much anyway. I am probably gonna get a 9900k but I think I might need to get a new case since my Phantek P400S TG doesn't really have great airflow and the...

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    From what I have read none of the current cards take advantage of PCI-E 4.0 speeds and thus performance isn't greatly impacted by going 4.0 so that's not much of a concern. I am more just looking for value. I think the 5800x is not that great value to I am going to cancel the order but still...

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I am okay with buying a new board and would rather not run a hacked bios. I don't plan on upgrading anytime soon after this upgrade so the dead socket thing doesn't really matter much to me. I am leaning on canceling the 5800x and just getting a 9900k and MB combo.

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I am not really considering the 5600x atm cause its very hard to find unless you want to seriously overpay. I was barely able to get the 5800x ordered before it sold out. The 5800x seem to be the more accessible of the Zen 3 chips atm. I have not ordered a MB yet however.

    Gaming CPU - Best value

    I am planning a PC upgrade and curious what the best value is currently for gaming at 1440p. I have a Ryzen 7 5800x ordered from Amazon but as of today its not going to be shipped until late January. Curious if this is even worth the price for 1440p or if I am just better off getting a i7-9700k...

    Recommendations for wifi router/ap for small apt.

    Thanks but not a fan of pfsense. The Netgear is outside of what I was willing to spend on an AP. Went with the TP-Link AX and its been great thus far.

    Who is buying a 3080 and 3090?

    Probably gonna get the 3080 if I can snag one before they sell out. I don't want an FE though. Aren't some of the aftermarket card coming out on the 17th too? Then plan to pair it with a Zen3 chip if the performance matches expectation.

    Recommendations for wifi router/ap for small apt.

    Yeah the shitty router they supplied doesn't bridge either but a its separate device from my cable modem so I am just pulling it out altogether.

    Recommendations for wifi router/ap for small apt.

    Looking to upgrade the shitty wireless router that came with my internet service. I don't really need anything with a great deal a features just reliable and secure. It doesn't have to be a router since I am replacing the router that came with my service with a Sophos XG Firewall box. Been...

    He has a long history on this forum of thread jacking/crapping. He spews his "vast expertise" on any and every thing hardware related disregarding practical usage and frequently blast people for buying anything that doesn't suite his personal tastes or needs. Just an honest observation I have...

    Best CPU for 1440p 144hz gaming

    After doing some more research based on the games I am playing at the moment I am more GPU bottle-necked than CPU so I plan to hold off as prices for upgrades to my 1080 aren't very competitive at the moment. My only real option value-wise is a used 1080ti but it still going run at least 500 so...

    Best CPU for 1440p 144hz gaming

    I don't really care to bother with O/C. I can get a 2700x (HS/F included) paired with a MSI x470 Gaming Plus at Microcenter for around $411. I think an Intel kit would probably be closer to 500 with not very must more performance.

    Processor Upgrade Advice Needed...Intel 9th/8th Gen or Ryzen 7 2700x

    Yeah I just looking for the best value really. So while the i7-9700k is in my budget I don't want to buy it just cause I can if I am not really going to see much of a difference at 1440p between it and say the Ryzen 2600. I would definitely like it to be a noticeable jump from my i5-7600k but...
