AMD parts are across the board cheaper and more efficient than their Intel equivalents, and if you match them by price, AMD makes every Intel part look like a jar of piss.
Lets take a quick look at the battle between AMD and Intel:
i3 9100: $137 - can be quickly answered with the 1600 af for just 85 dollars
i5 9600k: $200 - can be completely demolished by the Ryzen 5 3600 for $175
i7 9700k: $380 - crushed by the 3700x for $300
i9 9900k: $510 - Matched in single core and beaten in multi core performance by the 3900x for $435
i9 9980xe: $1980 (i'm being nice here because that's the launch price, which compared to the only price I can find at the moment is tiny, because at newegg it is $3000) The 9980xe can be matched by the 3950x for $750.
This doesn't include the Threadripper CPU's whose turds are better performing than the Intel competition
Now tell me how Intel is cheaper when alongside those cost differences, they are less efficient and require brand new motherboards
Still using a P6740F that my dad upgraded a while back. He put in a Radeon HD 5570 and a 430W PSU, but that's it, still kicking, trying to optimize settings to get fallout 4 to run at 720p 24fps
Well, it is wireless, maybe he just likes to have the keyboard directly under that monitor for looks and then he can just pull both out, or he's messing with you
The originator leaves us our questions as gifts for our sacrifices to him, I must fetch another goat, for I too have questions I must answer for myself.
I guess I don't know how to format my comments
Added some vertical lines to separate stuff
| Ryzen 5 3600 - Great processor, especially for sub 200
| Dark Rock Pro 4 - Like the look, cools well, can easily do some sticker/paint work to add some white/red
| Trident Z RGB 2x8 Gb @ 3000 MHz - Can set lighting to red, reliable ram, looks slick
| Intel 660p 500 Gb - Quick M.2 SSD, apparently reliable
| Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 Tb 7200 RPM HDD - Reliable, large capacity, exactly what I'll need for programming
| PowerColor Red Devil Radeon 5700 XT - I know there have been quite a few issues with these cards, but I feel that by the time that I really need to put this card to use, they'll be ironed out and the performance that has been seen has really just proved that NVidia was scared that it would be able to shove the 2060 and 2070 out of people's minds
| EVGA BQ 650 W PSU - Its a reliable well received PSU, plus it's relatively cheap
Size isn't really much of a preference, as long as my parts fit and it doesn't take a crane to move. I'll make a pcpp list within the next ~30 minutes and I'll paste the list here.
Woah there bud, not everyone playing on console wants to be there, just cant run borderlands 3 in 1080p on my 955 + 5570 setup. There's got to be an in-between for aspiring pc enthusiasts!
yeah, but you don't need to spend thousands for that performance and for ~750 you can get a cpu that can perform the same or better, still don't see the point in pretty much paying 100 dollars for a box of tissues vs buying one for 75. Plus, part of your answer is about what gpu you have which is irrelevant to your argument. 3950x can boost to 4.7 ghz so I have one question - are the slight performance increases really worth 250 dollars to you? You can look up a review of the 10980xe where they did actually test it in vray and the 3950x matched it and others where if the 10980x were ahead, it was by 3% and that's not to say that there weren't times where the 3950x was ahead, because there were, pretty much putting it on equal footing for a lower price. You can already see that intel can't handle how far amd is pushing because they just got done slashing prices for these rebranded 7980xe's in half, so before anyone decides to say that they are superior in any way, just remember the facts, like the higher price, the equal performance, and the quick response to amd's 7nm chips that is the 10980xe and if money seriously doesn't matter for you then buy a 3rd gen threadripper because it quite easily defeats anything on the market.
But... you know... amd matches intel now... big blue giant... is falling
Oh yeah, that 10980xe will definitely be worth it
I'm also thinking about making my own nebraska themed build to take with me to college, any cases you think would be good to show off my husker pride? I plan on sticking it in people's minds that their football team is not mine, even if I attend their college.
I wish these prices were accurate, I was going to make a similar build but now the cheapest 2080 is over 600 and my budget will be thrown out the window
what happened to the dual V64's?
So uh, you still doubting amd/ryzen?
I wonder how many of us PC enthusiasts have cats versus those with dogs, and that compared to the same with the general population, I think we have more cats
I also wanted to explore oc'ing so that I can prolong the usefulness of this cpu, but it's already a decade old, so I don't think I should push it
My first plans are to get a 1-2 tb 7200rpm hdd, because that'll be a nice improvement, then a 240-500gb ssd for boot and most used programs. I want to upgrade the gpu, I just don't know what I want to put in there yet, and I'm currently debating whether I want to take this thing to college with me, or build a new mid range one and use that for school.
Yeah, it makes my eyes water, my nose run, and since I'm asthmatic, it also makes it hard for me to breathe
Have added breaks so that the text doesn't just run on!
I would, if I could
Yeah, I know, for about a year it wouldn't boot until I cleaned the ram off, the only part I could figure out how to remove.
Yeah, I've looked up reviews from back then, and they say this thing was pretty capable for its price, I just didn't really get into PC hardware until I started programming. I used to think that a video card was a credit card sized thing that you just put into your computer, by the time I actually figured out everything, this 5570 was just a bit too old.
Yeah, I know I could, I actually have a parts list a lot like what you're talking about, for 470, it's got way better parts, I just don't have the funds.
Yeah, I know it would, I just haven't the skill or the resources to do so. My friend has built his own before and if I ever decide to build one while I'm still kicking around here, then he'll help me figure out how to do it. I was looking at the 480/570, but I also looked at some older models like the 290/390, because they can offer pretty good performance, and I can find them for sub $100 on eBay
Just what percent of the total price went towards fans?
The only mid tier thing about this build is the 1660ti, everything else can easily be considered high end, still nice build, although I question the need for the 3700x
Thinking of having a nearly identical build, what kind of frame rates are you getting?
Name of the cat?
I know that's what you meant, I just think that it will be really impressive
I have a feeling that even if it does use x399 it'll be really impressive, just look at how Zen 2 compares to Zen+
So, seeing as zen 2 is having such an improvement that the mainstream is nearly taking down your 2950x, will you be considering the next threadripper line?
I've never seen that air cooler before, but now I love it
All all of the ek coolants like that? I want an opaque coolant but I don't know what they look like
It's good until you can see that a 570 at a lower price is twice as good
Too bad you didn't wait for zen 2 release, still a really awesome build, before taking a closer look it didn't seem like you had a complete case, just a back wall and some columns to hold everything
Love the quantum in the corner
Do you have specs on the monitor stand and the name and brand? I'd like to do something like this but with dual monitors
Although the Gaming X/Gaming X Trio's provide better overclocking capability, do you really think it's worth it to pay 300 for it? You could get better performance out of a Vega 56 for 270, or a 5700 for ~$25 more and get nearly twice the performance
The son of your cleaning? Is this your cleaning person's son, is it your son? Also, either way I see it, how does one just ask "Hey I want a new PC, so I spent $1000 buying the cpu, now you buy the rest"?
You my friend have been ripped off, on an extreme level, I mean, you do know that the 560 should be like at most in the range of 90-120 dollars?
You probably could have come off with a better pc if you used a 570 and used the saved money on an R5 1400 or 1600 or newer, the 570 and the 1060 perform pretty evenly, and you would've ended up with more vram. It's a great build though and I hope the kids like it
I woul've gone with a 570, you get 1060 performance for the same price as most 1050 ti's
I thought it said Warm 3.0
Sounds like the dream
This is one hell of "Work Build" I could never call this thing boring as I'm typing this comment on a 4-year-old chromebook running on a Celeron N3060, my main use for is comments like these and essays, so I have to ask, what do you do for work?
Also, your monitors are 10.6 kg or 23.6 lbs each, the monitors I've chose (for cost) are 12 kg each and 26.5 lbs each, do you think that the mount you have will support more weight?
Do you have a link to your desk? I'm looking to make a setup like this but I'm having trouble finding a good desk
Put all parts to lowest prices and it comes to 962, the keyboard costs more than every single key component, why?
