#2797 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Hey Setsul, I want to get a 2 TB external HDD to backup my entire PC (I think that's better than using a cloud service like BackBlaze right?)

Is this reliable enough? https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Expansion-Portable-External-STEA2000400/dp/B00TKFEE5S/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_sims?ie=UTF8 I see reviews of it failing, are there more reliable ones that you recommend or should this be okay?

I would just select my current drives then copy pasting onto the new HDD right?

If there's a limit how are people circumventing that and clearing shelves?

#55 Would you rather thread in Off Topic

The latter

Would you rather pee through your butthole or poop through your peehole

Well Nvidia told retailers to sell to gamers not miners so hopefully the prices will stabalize?

I understand. The noctua nhu14s looks good then (140mm I believe). Cheers.

Edit: I hope that's enough to overclock an 8700k to 5.0. I may just wait until new Intel cpu's though, do you know when those might be?

I just didn't want a cooler that was too bulky, but that's just purely for aesthetics. If the noctua I listed is insufficient I'll get the prior noctua you listed.

I appreciate the time and effort behind your help.

Okay. Thank you.

To be clear the 650 you're talking about is https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WrNypg/seasonic-focus-plus-gold-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-650fx right?

Would the PSU listed on my build list work as well? It's slightly cheaper.

He said something along the lines of "why not just get a non-modular so it's more direct. Sometimes the cables aren't long enough on a modular and you have to attach them to other cables to extend them and those attachments can loosen over time"

Hey Setsul, you linked a modular PSU but I went to a PC repair place and their opinion of modular PSU's was that most of the times the cables are too few or aren't long enough and vouched for non-modular. What are your thoughts on this?

Setsul, I may have to just settle for a 1070 for now. My friend linked this, it seems close to MSRP but I never heard of the brand before. Is this a solid grab?

Setsul, would this ram work instead? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/kXbkcf/gskill-memory-f43200c16d32gvk
Do ram brands matter at all, or are they all the same in reliability/performance? I would prefer the minimalistic black of the gskill ram over the team tforce one.

Is Nvidia/AMD going to address the shortages? Or are they okay coasting on the money

I'd be comfortable with a 5.0 overclock. Maybe I'll have to wait a bit then :/

Is gpu supply just gonna get worse and worse?

#2767 PC Build Thread in Hardware

2.2k budget with flexibility. Yes to SDD+2TB HDD. It'll be a workstation build (Autodesk apps and rendering engines) but I also want to be able to stream and play games.

Edit: I'd want everything else on that list but would you have a different PSU in mind or RAM I meant.

Are Intel CPUs going to drop in price you think from meltdown/spectre?

Reinstalling programs is fine, and I'll be getting Win10 anyways.

Edit: Is the noctua nhd15 neccessary? Or would the noctua nh u14s would looks to be smaller work?

#2765 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Setsul, I'm looking to buy pretty much the same build as in the first half of post #2765, except with a GTX 1080ti, 2TB or 5TB HDD, and 32 GB ram (16x2). What would you recommend and would you change anything from that build with the new parts in mind (such as PSU)?

Also, if I want to back up my entire old pc, how would I go about doing it so that I can use everything on the new pc? I searched but the results were ambigious. Would I just get a 2TB hdd and copy paste things? Or is there some software that does that?

Thanks.
