Comment reply on Reki's Completed Build: Dell Dimension-3000 Sleeper

Damn that looks good. Reminds me of the sleeper build I did for my old boss. Granted the Inspiron 580 is a little newer than the old Dimension.. but it has a Ryzen 3 1200, 32GB of ram (idk why he got so much) and RX 560 now. I love old sleepers like these.

On which part? The CPU? GPU? The system as a whole?

As a whole, it's a low to mid settings 1080p banger. I don't have exact numbers but I tested a few games and it did good.

Depends on how much you're willing to spend. I only spent $240 because I went for the special edition.

If you're going to go either GPU, I recommend the 8GB version of the 580 at least. 580s can be had for super cheap now, I've seen them go on sale for $130. Whereas the 590 stays roughly around $200. But I have seen them go on sale lower than that. If the 580 is on such a good sale, no, the 590 isn't worth it. If neither card is currently on sale, yeah, I'd say the 590 is worth it.

Fun fact, according to this, the 590 is roughly on par with a 1660. (to give a better idea of performance) https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1660-vs-AMD-RX-590/4038vs4033

But if you find an 8GB 580 for sub... $150.. $160. I'd say jump on that over either of the other two cards. You could always OC the 580 to get close to 590 performance afterwards. (assuming you won the silicon lottery of course)

Thanks, I tried to get everything while it was on sale, only thing I didn’t was my 590... kinda hard to when you have a part fail on you.

Thanks! Also, yeah, don’t see too many people with this 590. It’s actually pretty cool though.

I know it is, but actually having had used it. It's not bad. I wouldn't buy it again, but I don't have issues sticking it in a build.

Wireless mice have become good enough to use as a daily driver, especially Logitech mice. Plus I haven’t found a mouse I like the feel of better

I mean, I'm able to pull deals out sometimes from nowhere. I know where I can get a 5820K for $100, I got a 560 Ti for $20, and a 780 back in 2015 for the price of a 950 at the time.

Just keep it to play around with honestly. I plan to bench some older and newer games with it. Well, as far as DX 10 can go.

Because all the parts I had lying around, and I only paid for the RAM and power supply. My buddy gave me his old parts after he upgraded. Why would I lie about what I paid or didn’t pay for them just to appease you?

Maybe, at lower settings and probably not 1080p.

It'll be just fine. Shouldn't have any issues, just put a Blu-Ray drive in.

Then it'd have been a waste of money and a kit when I upgrade to 16 later.

I'm using 64 bit Windows 10. I'm also not surprised about the Q6600 being faster, I know it's faster.

Mobo seems good so far, haven't tried overclocking yet. 1500x has been a beast so far.

I'm actually working on yet another recycled build. I just upgraded my PC so I'm moving some parts around and making a PC for my mom.

GTA V I get about 70ish FPS on high settings. I get about 50ish on high settings in Quantum Break About 90 to 110 in Titanfall 2. I haven't tested much else yet.

The Tomoko mechanical keyboard. I also have an old Gateway Anykey keyboard, which has cherry MX compatible keyswitches. They're also double shot molded, so I put them on my mech.

Them and the Phenom IIs from AMD from that generation are both still really good processors for gaming. Obviously temper your expectations, but they can do 1080p gaming just fine.

I wouldn't say LTT is utter BS, yet. I'd say Linus is utter BS, and Luke is starting to follow. The workshop videos and the other little experiments that Luke does at least has some value as opposed to more of the "review" oriented stuff.

There's two slots for 3.5" drives, and a removable cage for another 2 drives. Neither fit 2.5" drives though, and I was to cheap to buy a caddy.

I can confirm that's not true.
Though, IMO, LTT has been falling in quality as of late.
