I believe so. It's fully in there, I heard the clicks, and they're in A2 and B2, which is what my MB recommends

The 500 series is just slightly overclocked 400 series, to my knowledge. If they are the same price, go for the 480, it doesn't have any disadvantages. Just make sure if it was used for mining that whoever mined with it kept it cool.

Sorry that I misunderstood. If it's the Aegis I found, it's a really good deal. The RAM's a bit slow, but it isn't Ryzen, so it's less of a concern. It will probably get a bit hot, and won't be god tier for things other than gaming, but it's very capable, especially at the price you found it.

You can get a 1060 6gb for $270, don't buy that

Comment reply on Forum Topic "1080p at 240hz or 1440p at 144hz"

  • 18 months ago

With those, perhaps 1440p 144Hz would be better. I don't think you would be able to hit 240 fps on many games (Even with the 2700x).

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is this the sign of a CPU bottleneck?"

  • 18 months ago

It must be the work of an enemy stand!

Although if it is always at 99%, it's probably a bottleneck. R3 1200 and 1060 should be at least pretty balanced, though. I know Overwatch at least isn't gpu intensive at all, so it makes sense for there to be a CPU bottleneck. I don't know anything about Ghost Recond Wildlands. Maybe test out something that's GPU intensive (I don't know what you own, but something like Crysis 3 should do it), and see what you get there.

Cool. I'll probably go Ryzen then because of the lower price

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Ryzen 1500x still worth buying?"

  • 19 months ago

No, get the 2400G instead. It's a little better, and has ig, which is useful even if you have a dedicated GPU, if there's a problem with it, or for recording or running a VM. I think the 2400G is also cheaper than the 1500x right now.

I think the G4560 has better single core performance than the 2600, so the G4560 will be even better than what your test suggests

I do youtube with specs much lower than those. I have a similar A10 CPU but at 2.5 GHz (3GHz boost), Radeon R6 integrated graphics and a cheap mouse and keyboard I got from my grandmother and a thrift store, respectively. I can record fairly well, up to 720p with OBS depending on the game, and editing is perfectly fine also. 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3, also. You don't need that great a computer to do things on YouTube. Mine was $400 in 2014

The problem with that is it doesn't scale perfectly to the ones that aren't 1080p, so the image would be very slightly worse than on a TV that does native 480p or 720p

Comment reply on Forum Topic "4k tv. 720-1080p gaming"

It's just twice as many vertically, and twice as many horizontally, so it can just repeat pixels, so it will look the same as on a 1080p TV

BOTW is 1080p docked, which it has to be to play on a TV. Don't worry, 1080p upscales perfectly to 4k.

If the other people are on Discord or something similar, then the problem is that the only audio being recorded is audio from the computer, not from any microphone. I've never used either of the screen recorders you use, but I know that Open Broadcast Software gets audio from both a mic and the computer (Also it does many other things like layouts and scene switching and whatnot). It's free, but I know that it can be cumbersome to download a new screen recorder and learn how it works. I'm sorry I don't know much about what you already have.

Instead of getting a CPU cooler, get the Ryzen 5 2600x. It's a bit more in total, but it comes with a really good stock cooler (wraith spire) and is a lot better than the 1600 in terms of single and multi core performance. You may need to update the BIOS of your motherboard, but most of them are updated at this point, so it's unlikely it won't be. If it isn't, get in contact with AMD, and they'll send you a cheap AM4 CPU so you can update. Then you just send it back

I don't think there's a drop down, just a bunch of options on the left. I may be wrong though. Have you searched your computer for "System settings" in the Windows 10 bar?

If you have Windows 10, go to settings, then go to "System". There should be a tab on the left called "Storage". Click on that, then scroll down until you get to "More storage settings". Right below that should be a blue button that says "change where new content is saved". Click on that, and you can change everything you need

Go to a thrift store, get the cheapest mouse and keyboard there, and buy some Christmas lights. Place tape over the light colors you don't want at any given time. Then you can wrap the lights around your setup.

Eh. I don't really have a use for 8 cores, I'm fine waiting a bit for videos to render. I do quite a bit of editing on my four year old 2.5GHz 4 core laptop, and it's fine. The extra cores would mostly be for recording, or for any games that support it

I'm one of those weird people that doesn't like case windows, so I might keep the case. Thanks for the help elsewhere, though. How much of a performance deficit would be reduced clock speed of a 1600 be? A lot of what I'm doing is emulation, so can it run Cemu? I'm assuming it can do Dolphin. And will more cores benefit gaming? I know it'll help with recording and editing, so that'll be nice

Oh, and I'm using this for gaming, recording, a bit of streaming, editing. At 900p 75Hz, but I'll probably upgrade at some point.

What's a good build for around $500 then? That seems to be a common price for people reselling it.
