    Ryzen 5 3600 $155 @ MC + $20 off motherboad = $135. In-store only

    lol, it doesn't look that bad low. I like it a lot. I have the high-end noctua (NH-du14?) on it. The temps are great, but I couldn't push it past 4.2 without adjusting the voltage

    Ryzen 5 3600 $155 @ MC + $20 off motherboad = $135. In-store only

    I don't think they're that bad. I'm doing like 155 fps with BF5 @ 1440p low. This is with a 4.2ghz oc and 5700 flashed to XT. I was shocked. I thought I needed to upgrade after I got the 5700. Just hope I can more juice out of this CPU .

    Is it possible to.get 144 frames at 1440p?

    I'm getting good frames Right now I have a 4790k @ 4.2 DDR3-2400 16GB (4 Sticks) 5700 XT I'm averaging about 130 frames in BF4 (that's what I see with the AMD Catalyst Control Center). I was hoping to upgrade the system to the 3600 or 3900 and do 144 frames at 1440p.

    Is it possible to.get 144 frames at 1440p?

    Ok, thank you So it looks like I have to stick with 144 frames at 1080p. I have a 5700 xt and was hoping to upgrade to a ryzen 3600 in order to get 145 frames at 1440p. Guess that won't be possible :(

    Are the AMD drivers really that bad?

    I would get this one issue where I'd get a BSOD and then would not be able to re-install the drivers (even after running DDU). I had to -reinstall windows. But I only got that issue maybe 2 times with my r9 290 (3 1/2 years of owning that card). I remember getting 1 or 2 BSODs with past AMD...

    BF5 5700 xt low performance

    Thank you. I tried gpu check and they were getting anywhere between 150 to 190 frames on low. I made posts on several websites where the posters stated that my CPU with an oc should allow me to get anywhere between140-160 fps. I think hitting 120 frames is a bit low in Bfv. I want to get 180...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    AMD R9 290. Playing BF4 with Mantle was the best experience I have ever had with gaming. 144 fps gaming with no dips. I don't what happened with Mantle since, but I don't think Vulcan can hold a candle to it.

    People spent money on new hard ware. There was a shortage of GPUs. GPUs prices have gone up. College students tend to be broke, but I understand the exceptions are there. I get it. Thank you.
