I bet about half of the "Yes" voters in this thread actually just slow to a crawl for a second. That's what I see most drivers do. I always...

Forsaken! Man that looked cool in the 90s with 3DFX Voodoo (the first real GPU).
06/06/2020 - 14:28
But I mean, for $160 you must be approaching the point where just getting the 3900x is the better option than pushing your 3700x overclock...

@plentifoo: It's out of stock on Amazon right now (like most good PC parts). Try one of the reputable local retailers, several have it for...

Surely this is huge overkill for a 3700X? There are excellent coolers around $50, this is more for hardcore overclocking of the flagship...

> 3300X will drop in price soon? Probably not. Demand is high and stocks seem relatively low - about half the sellers on pcpartpicker au...

It's fine, but VR is still gaming, so the 3300X is still better than 3600 for that. And since it's also $50 cheaper, the money you save can...

Yeah AMD said B450 wouldn't be supported for the next gen Ryzens, but then said it would IF motherboard manufacturers make a BIOS for it....
04/06/2020 - 10:34
For those who don't know much about this CPU: 3600 is a very popular mid-range all-rounder AM4 Ryzen (the best platform right now for value...

Yep, e.g.: no stock at Device Deal of that MSi B450M Mortar Max mobo:...

Note that if you have a CEX nearby, they'll give you **$13 credit** for New Dawn and **$21 credit** for Spider-man:...

Yeah, not much noticeable difference between the best nvme SSDs. It'd be crazy to spend money replacing yours with this (and this isn't the...

Benchmarks are the most important thing for a gaming PC, but it's hard to find good sets with many games because 3500x never got a wide...

During my recent PC build I noticed a bunch of online sellers competing for lowest price on various parts on staticice.com.au and...
01/06/2020 - 14:11
In fact I only just bought mine (it's still in the mail) so most of my research spreadsheet is still current. Take a look if you like:...

Crucial still rates highly in the user satisfaction scores; Samsung, Western Digital black/blue, XPG, and HP are rated highly too. (crucial...

Not sure if that CPU will fall in price again soon, though the all go down eventually of course. High end Ryzens have fallen a bit - I've...

I strongly recommend ducted AC (zoned) as it's better in every way (quieter, more efficient, vents are less obtrusive, less air blowing...

Sydney one is same KW (6.6) but way cheaper, only $4860...
28/05/2020 - 12:15
It actually works fine without a licence, but it does ask you to register, and a couple of not-very-important features (like customising...

Thanks man! That's generous gesture and I appreciate it. But I've decided to just stick with the 450W for now.
27/05/2020 - 09:28
These are all good points. I liked the 1600 AF but 3300x had significantly better single-core performance. That matters to me not just for...
26/05/2020 - 22:18
You're right, I tried the calculator you linked and got: Load Wattage: 346 W Recommended PSU Wattage: 396 W Recommended Power Supply:...
26/05/2020 - 20:16
Good point. The Techfast deals are good value considering the CPU and GPU they have (the most important components for gaming performance)....
26/05/2020 - 20:05
Yeah good point. Gears of War 4 was like 110GB too I think. I'd recommend most people go for the bigger sizes, it's a bit more money for a...

I have a 4TB NAS and another PC for storing stuff, so I just spent my money on a faster, smaller boot SSD. I only play 2 or 3 games at a...
26/05/2020 - 18:58
Sorry, I thought I'd add some info for anyone else doing a similar build or wanting to do one, and got carried away. TLDR: There are still...
26/05/2020 - 18:56
Good catch. I used an online PSU calculator; load came out about 350W, and it recommended 450W, and there was a deal on one, so I just got...
