Yeah that's what answered questions on newegg said too, average of 2 days to recieve. guess they screwed mine up
Yeah, I've waited long enough I think for an email, I'm going to contact support. Digging around I've found other people have got their codes already.
I got a RTX 2060 and it is excellent. Quiet too.
Dang, that's surprisingly bad though. I'd be thinking there is something else going on as well... just don't what it could be.
I have a 2060 paired with a Ryzen 5 2600 @ 3.8 ghz, and so far it smashes everything. It sounds like you definitely have a CPU bottleneck.
Yes it is plenty.
I don't like it at all.
I'd go with something inconspicuously colored with no RGB such as this, with buttons on the top and then put the PC on an elevated surface out of reach like you would anything else important with toddlers. There are many cases like this:
Buttons behind a little door is something I haven't seen since ages ago, if someone can actually find a modern case with that built in I'd be curious to see it.
Looks pretty excellent to me.
That's tempting then. I know a lot of people who are probably not on right now would say go for it. You may want to go for it. Sorry for the super definitive advice lol, but if you feel like you might regret not having the features of the RTX series in the future don't let the pressure of a timed sale force you into a buyer's remorse situation. Only your heart can tell you if this is applicable. I know I personally, would rather have a 2060, so that's what I ordered. Going for whichever is cheaper is still a strong argument though, especially if that difference is 50 bucks (even CAD).
Looks like an impressive build to me, good part selection.
How much can you get a 2060 for in CAD? or a 2070?
Looks excellent and well researched, minus one part: the GPU. For gaming you should get the more powerful and cheaper RTX 2060 over a GTX 1070:
It's not what I would have done with the budget, but if you have the parts I don't see any glaring problems.
Cool man I'm glad you like it!
Yeah unless you have an ethernet option which I don't in my house, I chose that adapter because of high ratings and that it can also do bluetooth. The board I bought does not come with either.
Another way could be to use this B450 board which has built in wifi and bluetooth to save a little bit of money, the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC:
Here's probably the best RX 580 deal right now, still comes with the 2 games.
Looks great, good to see that motherboard came back into stock.
Yeah, HP sure made some durable laptops 10 years ago though. Odds say this should be dead by now.
I'm not laughing lol
Are you dead set on that form factor? Can save money by going bigger of course.
Probably not much, they both look pretty dang good.
A triple fan high end design like this:
Something like this, a good 2 tb HDD would give you plenty of extra space.
Here is a list of all the parts I ordered, just waiting for arrival now:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Don't hold your breath for a 1160, why would Nvidia undercut their own new product so soon?
It's not even a contest, if you can get a rtx 2060 for the same price, you have to go with rtx 2060 over a 1070
In battlefield 5 ray tracing drops 1080p gameplay on the 2060 to 60fpsish
Yep it's strong enough overall; power supply is good; never hurts to buy a quality motherboard at this budget; get a good quality CPU cooler you won't get much overclocking out of the stock cooler and if you do the temps will be very unsatisfactory. Since you under budget add a nice cooler.
RTX 2060, it just came out today, I ordered one from newegg.
If you are going to use the storage space, it's definitely not required depends on how many games and files you want to be able to store. 500gb is not a lot these days so it's common to use that SSD as your OS drive and games and applications you use a lot only, then get a regular old hard drive in the 1-4tb range for storing extra games and other files for significantly cheaper price per tb.
2200g is as low as I would go too, will last much longer.
Comes with a good enough stock cpu cooler, and yeah you could do VR with this build.
Yes, up to 5 more hard drives or SSD's (non M.2) plus an NVMe M.2
The M.2 will take up one of your SATA lanes, don't worry about it unless you are dead set on having many hard drives. Just use a different SATA lane when you add storage in the future. This motherboard has 6 lanes.
In order to leave all 6 open and use an M.2 drive, it needs to be a more expensive NVMe standard. Not worth it in a budget build.
This is a great build, that board is one of the few that will have built in wifi as well. Otherwise you will need an expansion card or usb dongle that will increase the price a bit.
Yeah that's a lot better, going to have to make some changes for amazon only or pay a little extra though. Searching through amazon and checking their reviews is really helpful too.
Prices on everything will probably be better in 6 months or so or you might find better components for the same price. If it's no extra money to you and you are set on waiting I'd just return everything.
This has me worried about the pricing... is every manufacturer going to try to gouge us and not sell a card at the damn $350 announced price? That is really going to tick me off.
Yes they will update to work out of the box, how long that takes and whether or not you actually buy old stock on accident though is the question. It can take a little bit for the older motherboards to run out of circulation.
I definitely like this build a lot better.
Get a better processor and use the stock cooler to save money. I don't know pricing for your country though, how much is a ryzen 5 2600 with no extra cooler compared to that ryzen 3 with cooler.
How much karma for a 5th copy of Skyrim?
So a computer illiterate person wants to sell their out-dated computer?
Sounds like a hard pass to me.
Don't build that, you don't want that old processor it's not even a quad core. I'd not take any more guidance from that friend.
Look at these for a good starting point for a build in your price point:
Try a different monitor if you can.
Try a different output port on your video card.
Try a different output standard.
I had a port go bad on an old amd card, but it worked fine on different port for the rest of the life of the PC.
You forgot the parts list.
Yeah if that's the only part you got and you want to wait to build until it actually comes out, you should go ahead and return it. I thought he already had a full build.
Any decent B450 or x470 board should get a bios update when the time comes.
