some games will use more than the 3gb of video ram at higher settings, not many but some. that card runs at roughly the same speeds as the other one (give or take a few) but has twice the Memory meaning that it can handle loading effectively twice as much, if you can afford it i would go for the 6gb hands down over the 3 gb model. as i said i would also throw in an ssd.
like i said i used google quite a bit to cheat with the german.

Zuerst weiß ich, dass es ein wenig über Ihrem Preispunkt ist, aber dieses ist nur wegen der 6GB Videokarte, die ich in für Sie setzen wollte. Ich würde empfehlen, einen SSD als gut, konnte aber nicht passen, dass in i bekam auch Sie einen Link zu einem Windows-Taste auf Amazon mit guten Kritiken und eine völlig weiße und schwarze bauen.

no, you can upgrade your parts separately, just because you may upgrade your video card doesn't mean you have to upgrade your processor at the same time.

when your computer becomes older you can always get a more powerful video card and just swap it out for a newer better one or if you think this one is ever not powerful enough.

you can connect it to the pc case, or to a metal table leg if the table you're working on has those, safe bet is anything Metal i usually put the wrist strap on my ankle actually and attach it to the table leg.

true but i can verify that ive played it on integrated myself on a laptop i3 that was much older than the 6100 at 60+fps most of the time, unfortunately with ops budget that's likely the highest its going to be unless he's willing to spend a bit more.

well the graphics card should fit if the motherboard is the one on that list however the ram will not fit for sure in that one, youd need a mobo that supports ddr4/288 pin ram.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Best CPU + Mobo combo ~ $200"

  • 41 months ago

theoretically yes, in 1080p an r9 380 will handle most games on medium and a good bunch of them on high, i had one in my wifes build for a bit before i saved up for a 980ti. an i3 might not be a bad option but if you're dropping into an upgrade i would strive for an i5 over an i3 because some games are going to utilize those extra cores and you'll notice it in those games if you don't have them.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Best CPU + Mobo combo ~ $200"

  • 41 months ago

no problem, if you do end up going for the i3 some games might still have some issues (if they have heavy multi-core load) but then you can upgrade to the i5 or i7 down the road.

the m.2 is faster and if its similarly priced feel free to go for it. if it fits in budget you can always have overclocking as an option for a few years down the road and i'm pretty sure the price difference between that and the other i7 is fairly negligible in my opinion.

you'd be looking at maybe 100 dollar savings if you swapped to a non k cpu and board and dropped the cooler (the non k cpus come with a stock cooler) but at that point id just go for it.

just because you'll have the option to overclock doesn't mean you have to and it might be somehting you get interested in down the road or closer to the end of your pc's lifespan when you needs more performance years from now it could be handy.

maybe, or at least maybe for a sale on skylake stuff. amd's stuff looks promising. if you're going to though maybe try to save up the extra while you're waiting for something higher end intel.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Best CPU + Mobo combo ~ $200"

if you can eke out 300 dollars go with a skylake i5 and one of the motherboards i recommended.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "V-Sync... Does it impact graphics?"

  • 41 months ago
  • 2 points

Basically as Radox-0 said v-sync tells your video card that the max your monitor can handle is 60fps so there's no point in pushing harder to go above that because your monitor can't even display anything past that.
you will have the same image quality and more stable performance because your hardware won't be working so hard for no reason.

oof, maybe a skylake i3 and mobo so you have upgrade path down the road? id like to recommend an i5 but thats kind of hard to recommend with a mobo under 200-220 USD :-/

something like an i3 6100 http://pcpartpicker.com/product/hV7CmG/intel-cpu-bx80662i36100

And a Z-Series Motherboard so you can upgrade to an overclockable cpu down the road. like this one http://pcpartpicker.com/product/qkX2FT/msi-motherboard-z170apro

or this one

as far as cases go, find one you like the look of and use it for the most part, i recommend most of NZXT's offerings myself as i have 3 (Noctis 450, Phantom 410, and now the limited edition Hyper Beast H440) as they're sleek and have plenty of room for cable management, also keep in mind you'll need space for your tower so don't pick an enormous case if you don't have room for it.

Swap the power supply for a g2, NEX aren't very good quality, other than that if you aren't overclocking then an h7 will be Plenty for you then.
also the m.2 drive might not be necessary for you but don't worry about the Sata ports being unusable, it will only block 1 or 2 usually and your motherboard manual will point out which ones those are.
looks pretty solid, maybe spring for a 1070 if within budget and if not overclocking you could consider going with a non-k cpu and a non z series motherboard but as i said looks like a solid build for gaming/streaming.

Mostly MP, there are single player Missions and you can do the PVE Mode by yourself but they don't adjust the difficulty so its like playing a 6 man mission alone. That being said its a ton of fun and definitely worth the money. (got it for 25 bucks during steams winter sale and bought a copy for me and my wife.)

Okay so here i gave you the option to overclock, black and blue everything, the motherboard has leds which you can set to blue, i even got some replacement fans for your cpu cooler in case you wanted to change that from black and white to black and blue (optional of course).

AND a 1440p 165Hz Monitor.

most don't go smaller than 170mm, however I've found one so far that does, can't verify that it will fit your gpu you plan to put it in there. http://pcpartpicker.com/product/grjG3C/apevia-case-xmasterbl500 comes in black and silver as well.
I'll keep looking, there may be another small case you could squeeze next to your living room setup as well and i'll see if i can't reccomend some of those.
