I just noticed the order confirmation you posted last week. It looks like you changed up some parts last minute. You switched motherboards (from ATX to microATX, from 4 RAM slots to 2), you switched processors (from i5 to Pentium), and you switched power supply and case. Is there an SSD hidden in there?

I never did take a picture of the mini desktop I just got this summer. Maybe I'll take one soon to post here.

Those should be the parts I order unless you're thinking of something Kaz posted.  And no SSD yet, but I will be getting one.  Though, I wish I had gotten an ATX mobo instead

I meant in comparison to the parts you posted earlier in that thread, but I didn't realize how long it's been since then.

Why do you wish you had gotten an ATX board? Are you referring to the lack of RAM slots, or is there something else? Some microATX boards (including the one Kaz ended up choosing) have 4 slots.

the ram slots are unfortunate, but 8gb has been great so far. 

more the size.  my front fan wasn't able to reach the first fan header so


also it just looks tiny.  at least the brown pcb isn't too bad

also, it's nice nzxt tied down the preinstalled cabling, but the fact it used a zip tie meant i would have to cut it to rout the rear fan to the other fan header on the mobo lol awdood;

Here's my current main desktop:
[spoiler](http://i.imgur.com/H6hfrlz.jpg)[/spoiler]

It's pretty hard to get a picture that really shows anything without taking some stuff out. Hidden in there is a miniITX motherboard, an SSD, and one HDD.

I also have another miniITX computer that I use for a server and media player. That one is similar, but in a different case (Node 304) and without a video card.

also there actually aren't any leds built into the case, i temporarily illuminated it with an led flashlight for purely photogenic reasons (otherwise the window is too reflective to get a clear shot of the inside)

and the window itself is of pretty much no use to me anyway as the tower's permanent spot is an inch to the right of my desk lol sillydood;

i pulled it out again just to take that picture

[spoiler=also, i was curious]

looks pretty neat but oh boyo would that be insanely distracting at night lol, and i'm sure the novelty would wear of pretty quickly

so no leds for me [/spoiler]

tfw two days after i had already ordered my measly 8gb 2400mhz ram for $30, i found 16gb of 3000mhz for $55 smithicide;

i have space for a second module so i can always add another should i find myself needing it (right now it hasn't been constraining me at all but i also haven't really experimented with gaming yet lol), but my gourd do i regret not waiting a few days before ordering lol

also yeah i probably could have spent less on a motherboard, but there are very few options with wifi/bluetooth in the <$99 range and i'd also be limited to 2133mhz memory (i have yet to decide whether those features are worth the extra ~$50, i could very well have bought cheap external bluetooth and wifi adapters and ram frequency is apparently rarely a bottleneck)

it'd still be an issue if i were playing a game or a movie or smth at night, or if for some reason i found myself needing to keep my pc on overnight, unless i could find case leds with easily accessible external controls

but really i'm just not interested enough in having an illuminated case to justify the extra expense lol, in order to even appreciate them i'd have to move the entire tower to some inconvenient location

yeah my case has a window and both the fans it came with have blue leds on them, but what gets really annoying is the front led, especially when I put it in sleep mode and it flashes.

yeah, the extra hassle of leds (even if it only amounts to fllipping an extra switch at night) sounds like it would quickly outweigh the two days' worth of novelty they would provide

yes! i guess! i just mean i've never experience moving pictures in a framerate higher than 60 fps tbh, so it's a new experience for me. so it is both very cool but very jarring because everything is ridiculously slick and smooth, whereas 6 months ago my shit would output at like 40 fps on average because of my old shit GPU (gtx 660ti)

it ended up being a good thing i got such an enormous case, the fury is 12" long lol, i'm not sure it would have fit into the one i was originally eyeing

but even so, probably about 1/2 of this case will remain empty space, it's definitely too tall for my needs

final specs:

i5 6500
r9 fury
8gb 2400mhz memory (i intend to upgrade to 16gb Soon™)
240gb ssd + 1tb hdd
psu/mobo/case/disc drive etc.

total: $780

fornlower budget I'd recommend AMD I suppose. They're usually cheaper and pretty powerful. I dunno how crazy you want your specs, but any of the newer mobos that use DDR4 RAM are still pretty expensive. I got a really good older board for like $100 instead of $300. Make sure you don't buy one of the mini boards either. Make sure your case has good air flow too, corsair is good for that.

If you don't want a super bright case with all the LEDs and shit I think you can just pull the fans out and out new ones in. I think corsair only uses red which are pretty dark. My computer isn't too bright at night, thankfully.

i hope they don't suck but we'll see (god dammit amd please don't shit out yet Another Massive Disappointment)

I'm also a little tempted to upgrade my CPU at the same time, but to go from an i5 6500 to a i7 within one generation of each other would really just be an expensive e-peen enhancement with little actual performance gain.

But the Fury will be two generations old by the time Vega launches, and I think upgrading every two or three architectural generations is a lot more reasonable as easier to justify.

if a regular >100fps is your goal then yeah you might actually benefit from a cpu upgrade

but absolutely the only option that would make sense for you is the i7 7700k, anything else would be notably inferior in terms of price/performance for 144fps/1080p

I had an intel i5 4690K.

Either way, I had to buy a new mobo, none of the newer i5s were an LGA1150. Did some research and found that the Ryzen were cheaper and more or less faster than any of the other i5s on the market. For a CPU that just came out like 2 or 3 weeks ago, it's pretty good. A few kinks, all of the AM4 boards read the temperature 20°C warmer than they actually are, but only for the X series? Apparently that's just AMD being weird. But either way, it's far cooler and way faster than my old CPU so I can't complain. If the 7600K was cheaper and as fast as this, I probably would have just stuck with that.
Title: Re: BOYAH GUTS THREAD: R8 'N' B8
Post by: Magyarorszag on May 10, 2017, 07:06:48 PM
imo ryzen has proven to be great competition in gaming for all but intel's two super-overclockers: the 7600k and the 7700k, which objectively remain the kings of the gaming hill

that being said,

Quote from: Snowy on May 10, 2017, 06:23:12 PM

looking at the benchmarx, they're actually surprisingly close

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-4690K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-1600X/2432vs3920

and you probably could have cut your costs by a further $20 or so by opting for the 1600 (non-x), since they're both overclockable out of the box anyway and the 1600 can hit up to 3.8ghz without too much trouble

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-4690K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-1600/2432vs3919

finally, i have definitely seen the 7600k available on sale for around $200-$220, but you do have to look for it, plus you'd have to buy your own cooler

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-7600K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-1600/3885vs3919

on the other hand, you get a much newer architecture/chipset, 4 extra cores, lower temperatures, ostensibly smoother gameplay, and superior desktop performance, so i think it all works out in the end lol

(http://hardwareoverclock.com/kuehler/Coolermaster_Hyper_212-026.jpg)

(not my rig, but its a CoolMaster Hyper 212 EVO)

The difference is night n FUCKIN DAY. but i was using a stock cooler before so thats really not a fucking surprise. before games would cook my god damn CPU, the fan would run at fucking BLAST OFF speeds constantly, and it would idle at the temps my cpu now is at under LOAD. fuckin' sik. i also learned that a lot of the thermal paste had wore off my stock sink so that probably wasnt helping lol but now my pc is cool and best of all its fucking quiet; shit doesnt even blast off anymore. my cpu is OC'd at 4.00 ghz but i might be able to kick it up a slight notch now heh heh

idk this is just what pcpartpicker tells me would be an ok not-too-expensive cpu that comes with a cooler


among non-overclockable i5 cpus, i think you're better off with the 7500

looking at typical canadian pricing, it's a ~10% performance increase for an ~8% price increase

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-7500-vs-Intel-Core-i5-7400/3648vs3886

as in, you can increase the performance of your entire system by 10% for 20 canadian rubles



exactly in between the 7400 and the 7500 in terms of price and performance is the r5 1500x

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-1500X-vs-Intel-Core-i5-7500/3921vs3648

out of the box, it's closer to the 7400 in general performance, but it has a few advantages:



you could probably bring the 1500x's frequency up to 3.7 or 3.8ghz (up from 3.4 by default) at no extra cost, which would bring it closer to the 7500 in performance

strictly for gaming, the 7500 is the moderately superior choice, but for hrdxxxre computing/work or heavily multithreaded games, the 1500x would be generally superior

between those two i personally wouldn't consider the 7400 at all lol, unless your budget is extremely strict

Post by: Magyarorszag on May 23, 2017, 04:40:32 AM

installation can take a bit if the screws are being uncooperative, but other than that, it's really not that bad. This is the 3rd time I've installed a cooler like this, and having a doublewide one has made a huge difference so far, but I do overclock my CPU.

It's a Gigabyte GTX 980 xtreme gaming. It's got a factory overclock and the program for this line of gigabyte cards is super easy to use and overclock even more. I'm looking to get an ASUS GPU that matches my board in the near future anyways. I was looking at a 1070 or a cheaper 1080 if I can find one.

motherboard looks good, although a tad expensive (but then again i'm not familiar with canadian pricing)

ram looks good

i would personally recommend getting a small ssd for your operating systems and essential programs but if it's really out of the question, you should at the very least try to get a 7200rpm hdd lol

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/products/internal-hard-drive/#X=0,16946&S=800000,4000000&t=7200&sort=-capacity&page=1

i feel like you could spend less on a case

also isn't that disc reader kind of expe- oh wait bluray nvm lol

and finally, if you can find an r5 1600 for a similar price to the 7500, you might want to consider that, because when overclocked (and they pretty much all overclock, and it's free to overclock) it's at least equal to the 7500 in gaming benchmarks (on average), and marginally better than the 7500 in all other measures

Yeah I would recommend an SSD for your OS. I got a 120g one for like $40 a while ago. And if you do decide to overclocked, make sure you get a watercooler. An air cooler can't keep up with the heat being generated. Hell, even without overclocking my 1600X runs a bit warm.

motherboard looks good, although a tad expensive (but then again i'm not familiar with canadian pricing)

ram looks good

i would personally recommend getting a small ssd for your operating systems and essential programs but if it's really out of the question, you should at the very least try to get a 7200rpm hdd lol

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/products/internal-hard-drive/#X=0,16946&S=800000,4000000&t=7200&sort=-capacity&page=1

i feel like you could spend less on a case

also isn't that disc reader kind of expe- oh wait bluray nvm lol

and finally, if you can find an r5 1600 for a similar price to the 7500, you might want to consider that, because when overclocked (and they pretty much all overclock, and it's free to overclock) it's at least equal to the 7500 in gaming benchmarks (on average), and marginally better than the 7500 in all other measures


motherboard: yeah it might be the trudeaucoins, it's described as "entry level", idk i'm going mostly with reviews here, and the alleged ease of use
MSI is out of the question because apparently they come with a lot of bloatware ugh idk

SSD: eeeeehhhhh i didn't want to discuss it but you see the reason i'm so hesitant is because i'm not dealing with an OS, but two OSes, and installing partitions on a HDD was already complicated enough for a dumbfuck like me, on a SSD it seems even more daunting and at least now with just a HDD i stay in familiar territory
tbh this whole operation is already daunting as it is and i just don't want to make it worse >.<

case: idk man that's what comes up with those parametric filters, fractal design is my E S T H É T I Q U E and the other filters aren't THAT demanding, at least four stars, no side window...
trudeaucoins, maybe?
i guess i could look one last time for another manufacturer with similar designs

overclocking: lmao no >.<

snowy: watercooling isn't out of the question, but i guess it can wait, i just don't want to spend too much at once, i'll monitor the temps and if it gets too hot i'll consider it
at least i've got the watts to spare lol

Also keep in mind, out of the box the 1600X doesn't come with a cooler lmao. You'd have to get one separately. That being said, if you aren't going for matching colors inside because you don't have a glass side panel, Noctua make really good coolers and fans. If you ever wanna jump into water cooling, I wouldn't consider getting anything below a 240mm set up, so no single fan setups/smaller radiator. A small one would help, yes but it wouldn't give you the full benefits of having a "double wide" radiator and fan setup.

But if you wanna stay with intel, I'd consider getting one of the ####K chips. They unlocked which means they can be overclocked. BUT even if you don't overclock it, they run at a higher base clock. My 4690K was running perfectly, the only reason I replaced it wa a because My motherboard was trying to kill everything inside of it, and the Ryzen chips were cheaper by a large margin at the time of purchase.

Why would it be any more difficult than partitioning an HDD? befuddlement

no, seriously, i can't imagine why it would be any different

aren't you a web designer, i'm sure it's not that hard lol

In any case, if you do ultimately decide against an SSD, you absolutely should not be looking at slowest-of-the-slow 5400RPM HDDs. 7200RPM is the bare minimum necessary for survival. myface;

When/how often is watercooling ever actually useful? befuddlement

i find that in the overwhelming majority of cases, the stock fan cooler is sufficient, unless you happen to be overclocking to extreme levels

and even then, you could spend like $30 on a third-party cooler and that in most cases is enough

as opposed to spending $100+ on a watercooling setup, which i feel is only ever really necessary when you, for whatever reason, need to eke every last drop of performance out of your machine, and simply buying better processors is, again for whatever reason, completely out of the question

watercooling is a much better option for me seeing as I live in a house with no AC, so the air gets hot sillydood; I need every last bit of cooling potential so I'm not riding the line at higher temps playing basic games, let alone something much more demanding on the CPU, like Final Fantasy XIV.

My 4690K got a bit toasty in the summers with the stock cooler but was pretty manageable honestly. I'm probably going to keep my 1600X at stock speeds rn since I've been having my computer turn off randomly in the middle of playing games. smithicide;

But you are correct, unless you're dying for the ultimate performace, overclocking and watercooling aren't the most important. For me, watercooling is like the only way to keep my computer from melting down lol.

toshiba doesn't seem too bad, but between wd and seagate, i'd generally take the wd if priced near equally

I'm fairly certain that it was my PSU choking out somehow? My CPU is only... a month and a half old, and the thermal paste on it was applied when I got my new cooler on monday. Granted I'm using what was pre-applied on the cooler but still, NZXT isn't that bad of a brand.

I did a full (more or less) clean today when I got home. Dusted my PSU van vent, removed my GPU and dusted it, reseated it, checked the plugs, etc etc etc. Seems to be working great so far? I can't tell since it was only done a few hours ago lol.

I also don't know if the Ryzen X series all still have the 20ºC offset applied to them. There's no reason on start up my CPU would be 48ºC. My i5 peaked at that.

yeah, the one with the 1700x and 1800x are really nice from what I've seen. If air cooling was an option I probably would have just stuck with one of them. I hear they pretty quiet.

I've been keeping my 1600x at about 3.9ghz with 1.3V buuuuuuut after the other night's shit show I'm going to keep it stock for a bit. I don't want to have to go through all that mess again lol.

I'm probably the biggest data hoarder here. I save all the anime. And some other stuff like source code, ROMs, ISOs, VMs, etc.

I have a computer I use as a general-purpose home server for NAS, seedbox, VMs, programming, etc. It currently is filled with a bunch of drives: 2x 4TB, 2x 2TB, 1x 1TB, and an SSD. I have each 4TB+2TB pair set up in a RAID0-of-sorts (using btrfs) with automatic hourly and daily snapshots and automatic daily sync between them for backup.

I'm currently using about 4TB/6TB in that setup, with 2TB free.

My laptop and desktop have exclusively SSD storage.

I believe downloading and compiling all of AOSP (Android) consumes somewhere between 50GB-100GB. That's including source code in a working tree, git data, and intermediary build files.

I don't do this as much at home, but keeping multiple trees checked out for different major versions of Android multiplies that even bigger and can easily burn hundreds of gigabytes. Even more if multiple architectures are involved.

A full build takes 30-60mins even with 24 Xeon cores, way more than that on consumer CPUs, so keeping build artifacts is pretty important.

but yeah, just hoarding the repository data (without build files or any working copies) is probably more like 10-20GB

Probably not very. But this 4TB of used space is even after deleting a handful of shows that I've decided are awful and never worth looking at again or showing/giving to anyone. And this is even after avoiding all 1080p releases (TV anime's normally made for 720p so I think it's a waste), flac audio, and other oversized releases.

My anime folder has 280 directories at the top level, with a lot of nested subdirectories for different seasons and movies (like 10 bakemonogatari things in one, a few seasons and all the movies for pokemon in another, 9 precure shows in a third, etc)

I just saw an RX 560 4GB available to order on Amazon for $120, so I grabbed it. It's not actually in stock until Mon Jul 17 though. This is the Gigabyte one; Asus and Sapphire aren't available.

I'm still not sure whether getting a 570 instead would be worth it, but it's not in stock so whatever. I have almost a week left to cancel before it ships anyway in case I change my mind by then.

I saw a 570 in stock very briefly on Prime Day for like $230 (list price). I saw it too late to get a chance to even see whether it was eligible for any Prime discounts before it disappeared. I think $230 seems too high for that card, shouldn't it be more like $170? I think the 580 is probably worth about that much.

So I figured out why my PC would just turn off randomly.

When I installed my watercooler, it wasn't seated correctly, I don't think. So I reinstalled it and applied better thermal paste. I also found out that because of the 20º C offset, it was tripping my mobo's thermal throttling measures.

It's finally fixed.

Well, it was Prime Day, so that RX 570 might've actually been at a good effective price if I had been able to check. Maybe it matched the ~$180 MSRP after Prime "discount", maybe it was even lower like $160. It's pretty typical for a sale like Prime Day to raise the base price of an item only to make a sale look more appealing than it is. It was shipped and sold by Amazon, not a third-party seller.

I don't really care enough to get a 580 and especially not Vega. Vega might even outdo what my PSU can comfortably handle. As far as I can tell, 560 significantly outperforms the PS4 and 570 beats the PS4 Pro, so that's good enough for me. I'm sticking to 1080p60 for what very little 3D PC gaming I'll ever do, so 570 would probably be ideal.

i wasn't suggesting buying a vega card (i certainly wouldn't and my psu couldn't handle it either lol), but rather waiting a few weeks to see if the release of vega shifts the prices of the 500 series downward

if you do urgently need to upgrade, though, then $120 for a 560 isn't too bad

I really doubt Vega will affect the pricing of these lower-end cards.

The stock situation is bad enough that I have little reason to believe I'll get another chance in the near future. It's not like I need it right now, but I'd rather not wait months.

I believe the price I got is not driven up by demand, that's MSRP. AMD says it's $100, manufacturers turned that into $110 with the custom cooler and overclocking (that every single card happens to have), and they raise it further to $120 for the 4GB version.

RX Vega is currently benching around the 1080, at $500. It's not that bad of a deal, considering a 1080 is still retardedly expensive, ti or otherwise.

a sound decision

my gpu came out in 2015 and i've been tempted to upgrade to a 1080i, but on the other hand, it's only a bottleneck in a handful of games and the 11xx series is probably less than a year away >.<

the crucial one was like brand new when I got it. goowan But I think I only paid $40 for the Sandisk one. And for the ram, the 3000mhz was $30 or so off, and I'll never even need the 3200 lol. My board can only take these up to 2800 anyways.

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

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

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.................

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.

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?

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

kind of, but not really? like the issue is it's too good. unless you're doing specific cpu-demanding stuff on your rig you're never going to utilize it's full potential. the extra potential isn't really going to expand it's utility years from now in any meaningful way; you'll be looking at an upgrade around the same time whether you go 3700x or the 3900x really. most games are far more GPU dependent these days anyway.
also without a high-end cooling solution too, you're decreasing your ability to ever hit that max potential anyway. i think for a decently high end gaming focused rig though, the cooling you've got is probably fine.

I had told Hiro on discord to move down to the 3700X, hell even the 3600 is amazing and invest in a 240mm AIO water cooler. Never been happier with any cooling solution than a water cooler. The 3900X is really cool, but unless you're streaming on twitch daily, encoding/rendering video, more workbench loads instead of gaming, the 3900X is wasted money tbh.

the 8300 is FAR less a limitation for you than the 760 is lol

Are you open to buying used? befuddlement

the 570 would be a big upgrade and the 580 a huge one, and then the 590 would be more than 2x the performance of your current card hocuspocus;

literally anything else? lol
$150 is pretty tight for a new GPU though. you're gonna have to wait for a nice lil sale or buy used at that budget
the RX 580 is probably your best bet if that's your budget for max gains compared to a 760. there's been sales that have been putting it around $150 new; i'd keep a look out for one
if you can save more dosh, the rtx 2060 keeps dipping below $300 and would be a much heftier upgrade.

HURRY GET THIS WHILE YOU CAN

https://www.newegg.com/sapphire-radeon-r9-fury-100379ntoc-sr/p/N82E16814202340

that's the absolute most power you can get for $125 by far lol

and the 90 day warranty is better than the 0 day warranty you'd get out of a used card

otherwise these ($190) are equally as powerful but have 2x the vram

https://www.newegg.com/sapphire-radeon-rx-590-100415p8gl/p/N82E16814202333

https://www.newegg.com/xfx-radeon-rx-590-rx-590p8dfd6/p/N82E16814150817

on the nvidia side the closest equivalent is the 1660 which is ~$220

but if you genuinely can't afford to spend more than $150 and don't want that furry then a used 580 is easily your best bet, it's only ~10% less powerful than the fury but also has 2x the vram

hell i even asked here some time ago what i could do with $150
RIP

w/e, its fine for now.  it's slightly cooler than that gtx 760 i had lmao
and plus im not truly demanding w/ it, i mean im just gonna be playing dbd at ultra/high for the most part w/ it

tfw you guys were right about being sketchy
tfw gambling on a used gpu was too good to be true, esp used for crypto

one of the fans fell out while i was streaming.  i didnt really give a shit bc i was streaming and plus i was just using the elgato and not playing dbd or anything on pc.  i couldnt even look then.  but before i went to sleep, i noticed it fell off, and i was just so disappointed

but anyway yeah so umm i put it back on and it seems like it's staying in.  but it's protruding out a bit more than the other fan inside, and im scared of it falling again

tfw i just wanted to play on a gpu with no issues.  being broke sux. 
i might just go back to that shit ass gtx 760 if things dont get better

i just messaged the seller so it's gonna be a while before i can get a reply

but yea crypto cards are a damn crapshoot, especially if no TLC went into refurbing them. its a card that runs at max capacity for months, 24/7, so its not super surprising to see one literally fall apart.

maybe a tru pc repair store could fix the fan properly if u got one near u? idk lol might be more than its worth tho

it's just that one fan, everything else has been fine.  cleaned it before i put it back in at the very least.

fell down again eventually lmao
the thing is i tried prying it out myself and it wouldn't budge when i put it back the first time.  guess it happens over time

if shit goes down im just gonna do the refund

lol so i returned it
tbh i didnt mind if only the fan didnt fall out LMAO

ok but now i dont mind going with new now that ive saved enough and can afford it.  but still wanna save $$ if i can

just gonna go around browsing for rx580s/90s.  but does vram rly make a difference if all im gonna do is play dbd at ultra and stream games?  i do ok with my gtx 760 for now lol, so maybe getting 4gb models wont be so bad?

EDIT:
wait actually
that msi rx580 i had was so damn hot i thought my shit was gonna succumb to flames
and noticed power consumption is terrible

i might opt for a gtx 1060
but anybody know better sites than ebay/amazon?  i found one for $200

EDIT EDIT:
i bought a used zotac gtx 1060 for $157
seller claims to have used it only a few weeks- has the original box at the very least

the thing is, lmao what is my next step to make things back to normal??? i dont want to use my screwdriver to turn it on every time

bc it actually works
only have to do it for a second

i actually spent HOURS trying to figure out wtf was going on bc i KNEW that i put it all together correctly and seeing that it wouldnt turn on after putting in the new cpu, just bewildered me to hell
>wasn't any of the cables from the power supply
>9th gen cpu actually works on my mobo so dont know why it wouldnt start up
>in the end, turns out it was the fuckin TOWER that was screwing it up
after learning all it took was putting your screwdriver/anything metal to the prongs of where the power sw cable should be hooked on, i've been good this whole time

im prob gonna get to the power button when i have more time and have it worked on or smth, but for now ive just been putting it to sleep so i dont have to do it so much.  actually i havent turned it off since lmao

but yea anyway damn my gtx 1060 has been so cool using, cannot believe ive let myself be on low graphics for so long lmao

that is my old harddrive lol

i'm sure i'll upgrade it at some point but honestly i never have more than 200gb filled up so it doesn't seem super necessary.

I feel like you'll be limited by how much power they can draw. Like, yeah it would draw 414 watts, but from a 450W psu? that's asking quite a bit lol. You'd be better off with a 650W PSU.
