The 5700XT is a much better deal. Anyone buying this 2060 should upgrade the power supply which leaves ~$80 difference. I know some people...

Yes, the CPU is massive overkill for this graphics card. NVIDIA 3070 with ryzen 5 (3600, or 5600x if you must have the latest) is much...

Not sure if you're kidding but I think Eva just runs at your temperature rather than being super sweat-inducing. Haven't really thought...
21/11/2020 - 19:45
I read they run hot, so not great for those of us who sleep hot. I like my Eva mattress, don't know if currently on sale. I did buy the...

That's the air. This is the pro
21/11/2020 - 12:09
Maybe PM Luke for confirmation but it seems unlikely. Their mAtx case probably won't fit the GPU
20/11/2020 - 20:16
Who is buying this with a 6800? Someone that needs a beast of a productivity machine but only wants to game at 1440p? Seems a bit of a...
19/11/2020 - 20:39
Ah, I see, month by month handset payments. Thanks Note the discounted plan fee (-$10) is when adding a new service, so I would guess...

Won't the credit will be a bill credit rather than refund? I.e. need to use for further months' bills. Or will they pay you out if you...

Surfaces vs hands and surfaces? I don't know, might just be marketing differences, not sure I'd take that risk without certainty
16/11/2020 - 13:25
If running on a normal monitor (1920x1080 resolution) I'd imagine you'll max out all the settings. At higher resolutions you might need to...

Suggest you the bronze power supply upgrade with this one
15/11/2020 - 23:46
These still appear to be available (pending arrival of GPUs): https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/578949 Probably as good as you'll see until...
15/11/2020 - 23:00
I think a fairer comparison is this deal for the same CPU: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/578949 It's perfectly reasonable to argue a...
15/11/2020 - 15:10
I think you've hit the sweet-spot with the first system in terms of value at this price point. All the parts seem decent but not overkill...
15/11/2020 - 14:49
Yeah, the minimum price is really above $900 delivered with a remotely reasonable power supply. I originally thought like some of the above...
13/11/2020 - 22:42
Although I'm not really in the market for a whole pc, I think it's worth Luke seeing if any well-priced 5700xt cards can be worked into the...
13/11/2020 - 22:34
Looks like they've updated to a credible alternative, +1 from me.
08/11/2020 - 15:28
I'm not a PSU true-believer, I don't think everyone needs to get one that they can take from system to system and lasts 10 years. I've...
08/11/2020 - 15:24
Everyone should upgrade the power supply (Aywun 700w!) Suggest you just change it now to a gigabyte bronze or CoolerMaster mwe bronze or...
08/11/2020 - 15:09
2060s will struggle on the latest games at 1440p. 5700XT is stronger for gaming. If you have very particular requirements you may need to...
01/11/2020 - 18:41
If you want to play 1440p on a budget this 5700XT is a better deal than the 2060 Super one. Perhaps not every component I would have chosen...
01/11/2020 - 17:54
If you want to game at 4k resolution then you should aim for a 3080. This is decent value however, depending on the graphics card version...
31/10/2020 - 23:02
They have a 2060 that is apparently still live. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/572540 By the time you've upgraded the case and power...

Does this mean I actually need to finish DOS:EE so I can play DOS 2?
27/10/2020 - 18:08
For 1440p/60Hz at higher settings I'd be more inclined to focus on graphics card than CPU. E.g. a Ryzen 3500x with 2070 Super or 5700XT...
25/10/2020 - 22:16
I think with the upgraded power supply (see comment below) this is a well-balanced machine and as good as is available right now for a...
25/10/2020 - 15:54
Any improved power supply options available on the 3500x/2060? 450w bronze substantially limits any ability to upgrade the graphics card in...
