I mean if you want to stream higher quality you can get an i7. You could also get better PSU but that's pretty much it. Apart from storage there's nothing you could spend money on that would actually get you anything in return.

There are no motherboards without ethernet. There is no reason to spend money on wifi when you've already got ethernet, which is faster, onboard for free.

A few other improvements:
Better mobo, better and cheaper RAM, same GPU only cheaper, cheaper PSU.

Hey guys,
I'm looking to build my first setup after using a toaster laptop for years. My budget is about $600, but I can go a tad over if necessary. The only games I'll pretty much play are tf2, csgo, reflex, quakelive, and the upcoming overwatch. I'm a total newbie when it comes to pc building so any suggestions are appreciated!

I'm assuming you want to spend as little as possible.

Why are you upgrading? I'm assuming it's because you're not getting as much fps as you'd like. Make sure it's a GPU and not a CPU bottleneck. Think about how much fps you want, then you can choose the cheapest GPU that'll get you enough performance.

#845
Same as always, what settings/resolution/fps?
I've delayed this post a bit for that reason, but as of 2 hours ago there are finally proper benchmarks for Overwatch so now I can offer more than an educated guess.

SetsulMake sure it's a GPU and not a CPU bottleneck

It's definitely a GPU bottleneck. I've looked up my graphics card and it has 512 MB of dedicated video ram.

SetsulThink about how much fps you want

I have a 60hz monitor, so I'm aiming for a little bit over that when playing 1366x768 on high-end games on medium to high settings.

SetsulYou can choose the cheapest GPU that'll get you enough performance.

How do I choose it though? Can I just pick up any graphics card and it'll work fine or do I need to look for a specific set of GPUs that works with my setup?

Going by that logic I'd say it's an HDD bottleneck.
RAM and HDDs only do one thing: They store data. As long as you don't run out of space it's absolutely irrelevant how much you have in total.

What are "high-end games". How much fps are you getting currently on those settings in these "high-end games"?

#848
6 core CPU with mediocre single threaded performance that was never good for games? Check.
Said CPU being 3 years old which makes the decision even more puzzling? Check.
Useless SSHD? Check.
600W PSU for a 300W build? Check.
Expensive case? Check.
Pro version of an outdated operating system? Check.

I know that you are trying to tell me if it's really my graphics card the problem, but at this point, it's pretty obvious that my GPU is the reason why I get 20-30 fps in battle on games such as Dirty Bomb on low settings at 720p.

SetsulWhat are "high-end games"

High-end games to me are the triple-a games, such as Battlefield 4, Star Wars Battlefront, Assassin's Creed, etc.

What I am looking for is to run demanding games, such as Overwatch, at a smooth and consistent 60 fps on medium settings at 720p, since I don't care about graphics.

I still don't get why 512MB VRAM matter.

Your GPU(s) being low end is not directly related to that. Also APUs are a stupid idea, especially if you're going to buy a dedicated GPU anyway. Two bottom of the barrel GPUs in Crossfire are still low end.

Triple A Games ok.

And you've lost me again.

If you can't get 60fps on 720p medium in Star Wars Battlefront something else is wrong.

I've heard lower settings improve fps. Since you don't care about graphics you might want to use the lowest settings.

I know. This is exactly why I'm looking to replace it.

Star Wars Battlefront was an example of an AAA game. I don't know what performances I get from this specific game. I do know that I have a hard time running "lower-tier" games smoothly on low settings/resolution.

You say you don't care about graphics, but you want medium settings.

You should already be getting 60fps on 720p medium in SW:BF, but instead of playing SW:BF you complain about getting 20fps in Dirty bomb.

If you want 60fps in Dirty bomb say so.
You said you want 60fps in SW:BF which you should already be getting.

I just can't see the problem.

I said that this game was an example of an AAA game. I never said I owned the game.

SetsulI just can't see the problem.

Alright, I'm gonna try to rephrase what I'm trying to mean :

I was getting at best 30 fps when playing Dirty Bomb on the lowest settings and on 720p. I tried other things to get better fps by doing the usual things (defragmenting, closing background programs), but that didn't help. I don't play Dirty Bomb anymore, but it made me realise that my computer is not good at handling more demanding games than TF2. I did some research, and I saw that my GPU was low tier for multiple reasons. I want to play more demanding games than Dirty Bomb (like Overwatch), so I'm looking to upgrade my GPU.

I hope this clears out most things and you can help me recommend a good GPU/power supply combo for the best price.

Well you're doing a great job :D

Also on the same topic was thinking of upgrading my pc since I have some spare money ~200€. Atm it is:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 @ 3.2GHz
Motherboard: ASRock H81M-VG4 R2
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 280X Dual-X OC
Memory: Kingston HyperX Savage 8GB 1600MHz DDR3
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3.5'' 1TB
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
PSU: Cooler master THUNDER M series 620W
Case: Cooler Master N300

Would you have any suggestions? Probably will try streaming soon, so its probably kinda one of the reasons of upgrading, but mostly its just generally since I have some spare money.

Ty.

Never upgrade just because you've got spare money. You might later realise that you want to upgrade something else and have no money left.

That said, for streaming if you want to use fairly high settings you could get a Xeon E3-1230 v3 or 1231 v3. Probably hard to find them <200€ atm, but if you sell the i5-4460 it's definitely within budget.
Also if I'm not mistaken that PSU is not even 80 Plus so you could replace that as well.

Other than that I don't see anything that would be worth upgrading, it's a very nice build.

So, taking into account the Black Friday shenanigans, I put together a 4790k build for a little more than the cost of the 6600k build Setsul helped me with. Overclocking is assumed.

Other than the slight possibility that Intel doesn't make a new chipset in the next 4 years (and thus that I could upgrade the 6600k at some point), what is the advantage to the Skylake build? The 4790k seems to outperform the 6600k slightly in single- and, of course, massively in anything which can use 8 threads.

Yooooooo. Been a while, tf.tv. This thread is an awesome resource and I wanna give big ups to everyone who has posted helpful shit in here (setsul.com). I haven't upgraded anything in about 4 years and I'd like to consider my options. Here are my main questions.

What's better, starting from scratch or keeping my old hdd and other crap and just upgrading mobo/processor/vid card?

DDR3 vs DDR4 - why does it matter?

i7 4790k vs i5 6600 vs i7 6700?

what are the cool video cards nowadays?

Thanks in advance. Hit me up any time I'm around if you want a bad ringer who doesn't play tf2 anymore.

Well you should tell how much money you want to spend on the monitor, then it will be easier for others to recommend you something

Better colours (->IPS) or just a cheap 60Hz side monitor?

#861
I think you're misunderstanding something here. Chipsets don't matter, the socket does. Intel has released a new series of chipsets every year for a decade now and never have they taken for 4 years to release a new one. So the chance of that happening are pretty much (maybe exactly) the same as the chance of meteorides hitting every Intel facility, destroying their production capabilities and killing most of their employees.
Intel is moving from tock-tick (new architecture - new process node) to tock-tick-tick (new arch - refresh - shrink) so LGA1151 is going to stay for a while. Kaby Lake (aka Skylake Refresh) (2016) and Cannonlake (2017) will definitely be LGA1151, after that we'll probably see a new socket. Until August 2018 there won't be any CPUs that won't fit the Skylake mobos. That's 3 years, good enough I'd say.

You are ignoring the different stock clockrates, which means the 6600K is at a massive disadvantage. If you're not delidding I'd expect the 6600K to OC better.

Other advantages: Z170, DDR4, M.2, Sata Express, more USB 3.0, more chipset PCIe bandwidth.

So the question is: Are you going to use anything that can use 8 threads?

#862
You can keep HDDs/SSDs, if you got backups. If not use the old ones as backup. The question isn't if, it's when one of them is going to fail. We're talking about desktop, not server usage so it's not unreasonable to expect 90% to survive 5 years, but is that going to make you feel better when you loose all your data? Back up anything you can't afford to loose.

Case and PSU depend on how good they are. Cases that require a blood sacrifice every time you add/replace any part are not worth keeping. Fractal Design Define R3? Yeah, should be fine, no need to upgrade to an R5.

DDR4 or DDR3 doesn't matter directly for you. A few Watt more or less might be a big deal on mobile devices, next to a GPU garbling up 300W not so much. The big differences are technical details and manufacturing. What that means for you are two things:
-DDR3 will become harder to get as it is phased out, so if you want to upgrade later DDR4 is the way to go.
-DDR4 supports higher speeds (and in turn higher speeds are supported by mobos) and is cheaper than DDR3 at high speeds. There is no 1600MHz DDR4 so DDR3 is obviously cheaper, at 2400MHz it's about equal, beyond that DDR4 is cheaper.
So unless you desperately need to save 10$ by going for 1600MHz DDR3 (a bit more if you a reusing your old RAM) there is no reason not to go with >=2400MHz DDR4 if you're getting a CPU that supports it.

6600/6700 K or non-K?
Also depends on what you're going to use the CPU for.

Same for GPUs, depends on what you'e going to use it for.

Yes, I meant socket, my bad. I didn't know about Intel's new schema, but in my case it won't effect my decision; I don't intend to upgrade again for at least 4 years. I hadn't seen a good analysis of overclocking results for the 6600k; an average clock of 4.6GHz is way better than I was expecting.

While I could probably validate some usage of 8 threads, the better single-threaded importance is definitely more important for my purposes. Thanks for the clarification.

Hello,

I am planning on updating my PC for streaming. Don't have room/etc for a streaming PC in my room, so updating my pc, as I feel I could improve on framerates a decent amt while using x264 as my encoder. Nvidia encoder solves it a little bit, but just doesn't look as nice. Wondering if I should bother? Should I wait a bit?

If worth, probably going to spend <= 1k AUD

Specs

CPU: i5 4690k @4.2ghz
GPU: EVGA GTX 970 ACX 2.0
MOBO: Gigabyte Z97x-ud3h
PSU: Corsair AX 750 (overkill I know had it for years tho ;x)
