what cpu do you have again? Ryzen 2xxx are getting stellar reviews rn, and GPUs on the secondhand market are dropping like a stone. I thinka  1080 these days are... about $400? I plan on picking up a 2nd 1080 and a SLI bridge for funsies.


i5 6500, which in retrospect was a poor choice even when i bought it

i should have gone for at least the 6600k, that would have probably kept me comfortable for significantly longer

oh well i've learned my lesson: never take advice from [glow=black,2,300]r*ddit[/glow] ugly;

it doesn't really make sense for me to upgrade to anything right now though because gaming performance on the ryzen side isn't nearly $400 (cpu + mobo) better than what the 6500 offers, and on the intel side, i would be crazy to """upgrade""" from a 14nm cpu to another 14nm cpu lol

i'll wait for intel's 10nm cannon lake to FINALLY arrive in 2019 (assuming they don't delay again) before i seriously consider a cpu upgrade

on the gpu side, i have a fury, and really its biggest limitation is the 4gb of vram

though again, upgrading now seems silly because pascal is so old and gpu prices so absurd and nothing short of a 1080ti would make any sense as an upgrade from a fury

so i'll just be patient and wait4volta

but it means i'll be stuck on this build for at least another year before i make any significant changes to it

[spoiler]

but honestly i play so few cutting-edge games at launch that i hardly even feel its limitations lol

in truth, i'm just a consumerist whore :'([/spoiler]

Oh you have a fury? That's the one with the little watercooler right? That card is super great. I probably would have gotten one if it have more ram honestly.

the fury x is the one with the water cooler, the standard fury is just beneath the x in performance and uses traditional fan-based cooling lol

honestly it's a mostly adequate card for my needs, but the 4gb of ram really does bottleneck it sometimes

what was amd thinking

if it'd had even 6gb it'd have much greater longevity

that's why my 980 wasn't really cutting it anymore. 4gb of VRAM was so limiting.

one day i will post my rebuild in this thread

Magyarorszag

It's hard to believe my own is now over 3 years old. SocksDood;

i'd say it's about time for an upgrade, but gpu prices right now are absolute arse and while cpu options are better they're still not quite good enough to justify the cost of a new motherboard

guess i'll just wait for the ddr5 era.................

C.Mongler

oh i actually did a rebuild like 3 months ago


i just need to take a pic and post lol

Magyarorszag


C.Mongler

new case with tempered glass
a ryzen 2700
liquid cooler
32bg of ram

beyond that, actually managed my cable this time around so it looks nice lol

i did this in prep to grab a new GPU this upcoming year, however AMD's GPU showing this year was kinda meh, and the NVIDIA Super line is pretty underwhelming from the rumors thus far. But maybe if Super pushes the 20XX line's price down a bit, MAYBE, but probs waiting til 2020 now on that lol.

Technology and globalism go hand and hand. If you want to be on the forefront of technology then you gotta be global

I'm considering maybe building a PC in the Fall, here's what I came up with:

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/LKxP29

The first one I did was like $600 more expensive, mostly because I had a different graphics card and a different case.
Dunno if I should get a better monitor or just deal with the one I have currently since it's not super horrible.

Opinions? Too much? anything else I need to consider?

A couple notes:
  • Unless you plan on streaming/doing 3d modeling/lots of video rendering, a 3900X is probably extremely overkill. Don't get more than a 3700X. Hell, a 2700X will almost certainly do you fine too, and that's half the price. with the cooler you went with you wont be able to get the max benefit of a 3900X anyway.
  • 32 GB of ram is probably also overkill, tho a more acceptable level of overkill. 16gb of 3200 ddr4 will probably do you just peachy tbh.
  • just to note, you can cop a 1 TB ssd for about $100 these days if you keep your eyes peeled for basic deals. jsut noting cuz pcpartpiker has it listed as over $200; don't pay that much.

Hiro

as far as the ssd yeah I figured
what exactly makes the 3900X not worth the money though? If it's super great and all, it should last me longer, right?
I didn't really know what I was looking for in regards to a processor cooler so if there's a better one that's decent priced lemme know
