I'm wondering if it is worth paying a premium for a display with a much higher refresh rate than my GPU can match.
Does it provide 0 benefit? A little? Less motion blur or something?
Yes this is a naive question, i really don't know.
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Reportedly a “Budget Card,” Weaker Than NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
"The Radeon RX 6700 XT will reportedly feature 40 Compute Units, 12 GB of memory on a 192-bit bus, boost clocks of 2.35 to 2.5 GHz, a GPU power of around 200 watts, and less Infinity Cache than the flagship...
Is the msi one good?
I'm going to use it with 5600x and a thermalright axp-90 in a dan a4 case.
I don't have any special requirements, a decent sound chip would be nice though.
Any tips and suggestions appreciated, I haven't built a computer in ages
Is this motherboad a good choice for this case?
MSI MPG B550I GAMING EDGE WIFI Mini ITX AM4
Will use with thermalright AXP-90R cpu cooler.
Also concerned if typical height ram will fit, maybe i should remove heat spreader from ram
#1) How bad is it to game at 1440p on a 4K monitor?
I've always read that playing at a non-native res is worse. How much worse? Is this still true on newer displays?
Reason for question: I'm sure I'd game at 1440p and never 4k but I could occasionally benefit from 4k in non-gaming...
i've seen it in stock 4 times.
Each time, i make more than a dozen attempts with buy it now button, quickly dismissing warrantee popup.
I have never successfully ordered it.
I'm very frustrated. i have never gotten into my cart either.
I've tried adding it to the cart instead of using buy it...
The Thermalright AXP-90 received some great reviews, it fits especially well in SFF systems.
The problem was you had to order it straight from China for a long time.
Now I see two sellers on EBAY who are shipping them from places in the USA.
So now this option can be considered by more people.
I was all set to get some 5600x and some new vid card. Yeah that isn't happening.
So instead of being a shut in gamer I guess i'll do something outside and maybe actually acknowledge people.
Win by losing
johnnysd gave the correct answer here, while pendragon1 completely misses the boat.
AMD requires such a high output power supply because they have to account for the fact that there is extreme variance in power supply quality.
A high quality brand would cut it at 500W, a random cheapass one...
Looks like that isn't happening!
"NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Graphics Card’s Launch Reportedly Pushed Back to December 2nd"
Very little known on 6700 cards yet.
Since almost all discussion is about the 6800 & 6900, I created this thread for speculation, rumors, and crumbs of info specific to 6700.
They're based on navi 22 gpu, rumored to have 12gb gddr6 memory.
wccftech posted speculation that there will be two 6700...
Do you think they will give us info on all the new cards, or just the highest end couple.
I am most interested in the bottom of the 3 (or is it 4 or 5)?
Hoping to learn power consumption tdp numbers, and how long and wide the lower card is
It seems like 16:10 monitors haven't been updated for years.
There are so few options.
None with 120hz or other common options.
16:10 is having a resurgence on laptops now, but nothing for desktops.
Is there really no hope for us?
What about your earlier comment worrying about card thickness? Isn't the EVGA too thick?
"It looks like no. They are all too thick :(
Not all have had their dimensions announced yet, but of the ones that have, all of them are 5cm+ and the A4-SFX is max 45mm with backplate. The others don't...
Hello, I have been seeing some blogs claiming Zen 2 is coming as soon as January.
So I don't give these stories much credance and don't expect anyone else to.
However, anyone heard any juicy rumors or have any reasonable guesses at when it might ship?
I guess the next generation of...
Any air cooler better than Noctua - NH-L9a-AM4?
Do I need to worry about ram sticks with too tall heatsinks on them?
My setup is
ryzen 5 2600
MSI - B450I GAMING PLUS AC
corsair sf 600w
two 2.5 inch storage devices
some ancient 770gtx for the moment
maybe G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series...
The article introduced 4 processors.
In the last sentence, it could have said all of these processors are OEM only.
But that's not the information the author had, and not what he wrote.
He went to the trouble to single out only the two X processors as being OEM only.
My question was about...
The article introduced 4 processors, two x processors and two e processors.
If your view is correct, it's hard to explain why the last "update" sentence went to trouble to specify that only the two "x" processors were oem only.
If you were right, it seems like they would have said "all of...
You misread the article. It said two of the four announced processors would be OEM only, but not the one I asked about.
The article also includes this sentence:
"AMD has said that these processors are 'immediately available"
Hello, I saw these new low wattage version 2600e mentioned in the below article, wondered where i can buy one?
