    Six monitors and video card question

    I am not sure if a 3070 can actually drive 6x displays but it looks like the Gigabyte Aorus cards hav 3x display port and 3x hdmi if you wanted to have a single card run your setup. https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-3070-gv-n3070aorus-m-8gd/p/N82E16814932359?&quicklink=true It would...

    Old and Uninformed: I need to replace an 8-year old GTX 680. What's the best $200-300 card?

    Exactly, not to sure how a $499 retail card will effect something in the $199-230 range. I mean the Rx500 serries has been around for ever and they are still in the $160 range. Also it looks like Nvidia did a good job again clearing the rx 2000 series out of the channel to have surplus...

    Anandtech bench is a good general performance index for gpus in some games at 1080p, 1440p and 4k. Honestly bang for the buck the r5 3600 at $180 is really hard to beat and you can just throw it in a b450 board, note if you were wanting zen 3 jan 21 is when bios updates for 400 series are said...

    Intel 9260 wifi M2 adapter - Sloooooow ?

    If you have a hard wired machine on the network try setting up iperf 3 it can show you actual throughput without using internet.

    Intel 9260 wifi M2 adapter - Sloooooow ?

    Hmm have you tried taking the card out and reseating it, and reconnecting the pigtails? Sounds like a signal problem.

    6 Core vs 8 Core in gaming?

    Yep Microcenter, so for me the 3600 at $180 is a lot more palatable than 5600x at $300, but it does give a 20% ipc bump so maybe worth the 120 extra if ipc is your need. Heck the 9700k at 200 is a sweet chip for gaming if you are wanting to go down that road, with a 5ghz OC it it still near the...

    6 Core vs 8 Core in gaming?

    Historically game engines have mirrored what is available to consoles, so probably 8c16t zen 3 would be a good baseline. Donno if you have seen benches, but 6c12t zen 3 slams 8c16t zen 2 and intel chips so architectures matter as well.

    Looking for PC build recommendations to go with RTX 1080

    Not to get way off topic, as I am suggesting to take full advantage of a gpu of that class you are looking at a full system swap. In that it is probably more cost effective to get a current gen prebuilt as you would need all the components anyway. Also I am not sure you are actually looking at...

    Looking for PC build recommendations to go with RTX 1080

    I meant to say 1660 supper / ti... but based on the rez or game they are surprisingly similar https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2527?vs=2542 . And let me preface this by saying 60 fps is playable in my book at least on my 4k tv which can fall back to 1080p and still be enjoyable. So like...

    Looking for PC build recommendations to go with RTX 1080

    Assuming 1080 in good working order, sell for like $280 ish on forums. Then buy a $600 ish black friday gaming machine. Pull out hdd of old machine and donate your old rig. Honestly a 1660 or better is way similar and you could get a full platform bump.

    Well the only rtx in your price range is a 2060.

    9700K $199 Micro Center (plus $20 off MB)

    I am not sure you will see a huge drop in Ryzen 3xxx chips as the 5xxx chips have a hefty MSRP jump over the last gen. Hope you logic works out as I would like to double my 3600 to a 3900 for reasonable $.

    Need a new CPU for 4K gaming but Zen3 has no upgrade path.

    Honestly if you stuck with a 2011v3 platform thus far what makes you not want to do the same with am4? If amd really trumps intel ipc this cycle which sure looks like a possibility, and you can get 16c32t what more would you want to gain? Just curious what massive tech could be crammed in in...
