    I'm looking for thoughts on a build dilemma.

    Looks like it will use 6 cores so a 9600k seems a pretty good choice.

    I'm looking for thoughts on a build dilemma.

    If you are buying right now and only play one game, you could check how many threads that game actually uses. If it's not heavily multithreaded then buying a speed binned 9600k would give good performance. However if it was me I would wait 6 months see what Intel and AMD does next.

    There are a lot of used GTX 1070's for sale. Good if you can snag one for cheap.

    PC upgrade

    That may be so but you won't be playing RDR2 on high 1080p 60 fps with it. I saw a review using a 9900k, with a GTX 1060 gets 32 fps.

    PC upgrade

    Probably you would need a bigger budget for the rockstar cowboy game if you want to play it with good settings and resolution. With that budget you can play it on a console.

    Is building a 2500k machine today worth it?

    I doubt you will find better performance / $ than a 2500k @ $30

    General Use Computer - Non Gaming - Pondering

    Well I kind of see what your saying, but it's just for me the term power user and 3400G just don't sit well together in 2019. Power user and high performance desktop to me say moar cores! Overkill is fun! Also a 1050ti is required for streaming Netflix in 4k

    I'm confused could you explain to me how the build I specified is nothing like a high performing desktop with the best user experience imaginable?

    Hello my first post. I have a question.

    I did muck around with undervolting my vega 56 when I first got it, but got annoyed with the driver as it kept forgetting the settings after a restart and plus it didn't seem to make any practical difference due to my card having great cooling anyway

    Hello my first post. I have a question.

    I had a similar thing with my pc when I had a 660W platinum psu which on paper should have been plenty enough for a vega 56 and quadcore cpu, and the online power calculators said it was more than enough but my machine would restart every time at a certain point on a particular game with the...

    help me pls troubleshoot Ryzen 3600 gaming edge x570 Thanks

    From what I can gather from your posts, your system is unstable crashing with BSOD or Thread exception error not handled Ntfs.SYS or IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL Sounds like memory instability, you could muck around with the settings but it might be easier to return the ram and get a different set.

    Thoughts before I RMA board?

    I couldn't get any of my Sandisk usb sticks to work with the Windows 10 installation media tool. I think there's something weird about Sandisk usb drives.

    Will i5 3570k Oc'd to 4.5 bottleneck an RTX 2060 @ 1080p 144hz?

    Yes you would get a better framerate with a more powerful cpu. Should still be playable though depending on the game. I have a 3570k with a vega 56, the lows on Far Cry 5 are pretty bad, thats the only modern shooter I've played though.

    Gaming PC build verification

    You can get a 1TB SSD for the same cost as the 250GB and 500GB ones that you have listed. That would be better I think. You should also be able to buy a perfectly good PSU for $100 rather than $125.

    Perhaps it is afaulty cable. I have a long usb cable it works with my gamepad fine.

    Wondering if I made the right choice still.

    Hyperthreading doesn't do much for games, it's more useful for compression and encoding. It's the larger cache that gives a few frames more to the 9900k over the 9700k in gaming benchmarks.

    Best hardware diagnostic tools?

    Companies manufacturing graphics cards provide lots of choice for us consumers. We can pay less and buy a card with adequate cooling and power delivery, or we can pay more for fancy cooling and power delivery. This is generally a good thing. If you want a card so you can watch Furmark running...

    6700k died while deliding, upgrade to 7700k or do full system upgrade?

    Depends. If you are mainly gaming Ryzen will have similar performance to a 7700k, just buy one already delidded :)

    Best hardware diagnostic tools?

    The thing with Furmark is it places a load on the GPU way bigger than any game ever would. This is fine for graphics cards with over-engineered power delivery circuitry and cooling solutions, but these things cost money and most people buy graphics cards to just play games.

    That's why I use a ridiculously oversized heatsink with two fans, so I don't have to bother cleaning it out lol.

    Depends if a 1% performance increase is worth $70 to you.

    RTX 2080 and 600W PSU

    I would use your current PSU and see if you experience any reboots, strange behavior etc. If so buy a more potent PSU.

    Good gaming PC Specs?

    If you are going to build don't forget about static discharge. You must touch something metal and grounded like the computer case to discharge any static before touching components. A friend killed his motherboard a long time ago lol

    Is a 128 GB SSD still large enough for Windows 10 in 2019?

    I use a 1TB SSD for everything and an old 128GB SSD for data backup. I stream all my media now so no need for lots of storage.

    For Asus I think you have to pay a bit more (the Asus tax lol) something like the Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING I quite like the look of.
