    My first time building a PC

    The M.2. is only superior for those that use HDD, otherwise its completely useless. For gaming I would avoid RAID, its not necessary with today's SSD speeds and capacities. I would also be wary of ROG products, I went with the TUF z370 board with the 8700k. 4k isnt 'that' demanding for video games any more with the 1080ti. You're also limited to a 28" monitor currently. for VR its also unnecessary for SLI, its actually faster to run all PCI lanes on one GPU rather than split it. The gaming rigs of top build 5 years ago no longer apply, and the 10 years plus designs are also a thing of the past. 2 SSD, one boot, one storage, one GPU, liquid cooled CPU, no optical drives. I run this setup and I still play games on ultra at comfortable frames on an outdated 970FTW+

    Destiny 2, GTA Online

    I recently got Destiny 2 on pc and I also got back into playing GTAO. I cant find any form of clan remotely related to us in Destiny 2, and I havent seen anyone active in the group on GTAO. Does anyone here play either of these on PC?

    RSI Spectrum Titles

    What title do you use? I just switched back from Predator to Cartographer, but with so many titles. How do I choose?

    Star Marine - 63 frags gameplay

    Many of us are plagued by a nearly unplayable game. Low frames or no sound. Expect more after optimizing or upgrading

    Yea. I think tac specifically said no. Also selling ships and accounts is a terms violation of star citizen

    New PC build

    I can't justify the additional price of the i7 over i5

    Dual Universe - Another Space Game

    I'm only subscribing to star citizen. its interesting. But not subscription interesting.

    My Rainbow rig

    Do you mostly do workstation functions? The v3 socket and i7 are better suited by costs for workstation functions. Don't mistake what I say. It will play games quite well.

    Here we are, and its good

    Keep an eye on Atlas Defense Industries. I was there and heard more than I should have. The owner JayC and one of his lackeys Hav0k have established more than one time they will stop at nothing to be number 1. They have a goal of overthrowing the UEE if possible. Imperium is filled with some decent guys. A bit on the sensitive side. But with some good intentions. xplor was founded by a banned member of imperium. And we all know test is filled with a bunch of goon squad members. An army of auroras is just an army of auroras. Don't let numbers try to show you what their power is. Numbers are very deceiving.

    New to Gaming Need Hard Drive

    Are you on a laptop? I'd suggest against laptops for any long term solution to gaming they are vastly underpowered for their cost compared to desktops. And upgrade capabilities are very limited. if you are. You can hook up a new ssd externally, format it, swap it out for your internal hdd. Fresh install windows. And put your hdd as an external to retrieve all the things you desire off of it.

    No vr support. Yet. chris Roberts has already stated the rift will get support before any other vr headset. even then. People are playing sc with a rift currently

    Help needed with troubleshooting

    I would have suspected the motherboard as well. if your issue persists after CPU swap; Have a look at your ram
  17. Still listing 1151 as most cost effective gaming build at this time. Looks like I'm going with an Asus z270 powered atx.
  18. Im going to build a dreamsheet for a solid and future resistant desktop upgrade for myself. I currently am running an ASUS mobo with an FX-6200 lodged into its AM3+ socket. I have some Gskill ram thats helping push the EVGA GTX 970 FTW+ with AXC 2.0. So my upgrade sheet will probably not include a video card, as I only play at 1920*1080. If I do it will be a future upgrade to add at some point. My PSU should be pushing adequate power as its a Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W. Modular, and I love it. So. Lets start with a Motherboard. Socket first? 1151. 2011v3 is great and all, but for multithreading and heavy cpu work, which I dont do. I'm a gamer, remember? Even then, I should be able to process any video/audio needs should that spark fly in my direction. Make? Asus. Always had asus, they have never let me down. Friends have had Gigabyte and ASRock, and have been let down. Form? ATX. So.. Wheres that put me? ASUS TUF Z270 Mark 1 LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 Z270 ATX https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132934 The Z270 is not a completely necessary chipset over prior generations, but hey, 7th gen Intel is 7th gen Intel. The TUF provides a VERY similar spec sheet to the 40 dollar cheaper 270-A prime, but with a 5 year warranty, a stronger board, and more robust cooling, Ill take it. Better cooling=increased gaming duration and reliability. Now the Processor, this should be easy, do I need an i7? no. this is a gaming computer, until game makers actually start using more cores, its a moot point, Even then, I can upgrade a processor easy. Intel Core i5-7600K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 3.8 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I57600K https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117728 Is it as good as the Ryzen that just came out? Not really. But Im going to back away from the AMD circuit, they tend to lean to better performance with the ATI cards, and I just cant stand them (its the way they render color). To be continued.

    Anthem, The new Bioware game

    If it was on sale and cheap enough, round 20$, id pick up a copy, maybe...
  23. Yea, Im just going to wait for the 2066 motherboard and x series 4.0ghz i5 at a cheap price to come out. Gaming really doesnt use too many cores, so this new i5 will be quite literally ground breaking for the pc gaming market
  24. Ryzen= Socket AM4, 1500X - 3.5ghz, 4 cores, 8 threads, 4x512kb L2 Cache, 16MB L3 cache, 65W. Intel= Socket 2066 (R4), Core i5-7640X, 4 core, 4 thread, 4.0 Ghz, 4x256kb L2 Cache, 6Mb L3 Cache, 112w Both Processors support 16 PCI-e 3.0 Lanes and both support dual channel DDR4 2666 Ram. If anyone is familiar with gaming, hyperthreading to 'synthetic' cores always brings a diminishing performance, as youre asking one core to do the work of two. I guess it comes down to cost eh? 242$ for Intel 189$ for AMD AMD's closest processor to clock speed is the 1600X or 1800X, and both of these cost more than the Intel Processor (even if by a few dollars) To top it off Intel is launching a new socket 2066 to go with it, and that brings amazing promise. Say the i5 7640X somehow gets outdated, I can assure you Intel will run with this new socket for years to come, and I can already tell you that I could just overclock the proc by a small amount, and switch to liquid cooling should the heat build up too much. Did I mention Intel works better with nVidia GPU's? Which still run the market as best GPU. New X Series Intel CPU's will be my next upgrade. Ryzen can stuff it with its slow clock speeds.
  25. http://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Socket-2066 The stats look great. Now we wait for benchmarks and future revisions. These are all rev 1 http://www.anandtech.com/show/11479/gigabyte-launches-aorus-x299-motherboards http://www.gamersnexus.net/news-pc/2932-gigabyte-x299-gaming-9-motherboards https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.techpowerup.com/233949/gigabyte-x299-ud4-could-be-its-most-affordable-lga2066-motherboard%3Famp looks like we can see a sub 200$ x299 lga2066 and with a 300$ roughly i7 new processor. We should be able to upgrade for around 5-700 usd if we get ram as well. Still in the very much good price ranges. When I find them for sale. I'll post them asap.
