#3903 PC Build Thread in Hardware
SetsulI'm not up to date on current models and don't really have the time to go down that rabbit hole right now.

that sounds very fair, thanks for the help so far nevertheless

jnkilg is the one that is most worthwhile, then samsung/gigabyte
iiyama if you get a good deal is not the worst thing in the world
acer and asus are just not worth considering

epic, thanks for the detailed opinion, I'll check out some more thorough reviews of the LG but it's probably the one I'll go for

Alright thanks a lot for the PSU input Setsul, makes sense. Do you have an opinion regarding the monitors?

#3898 PC Build Thread in Hardware

thanks for the recommendations and explanations narkkari, I could fancy IPS I guess. the only thing with the LG you recommended is it seems like the earliest I can get it is February 14 for some reason lol, idk if Boulanger's website is bugged or smth

How comparable in quality are the following 27" IPS? (I picked the ones that seem to be available and of comparable pricing)

- iiyama G-Master G2770QSU-B1 and Iiyama G-Master GB2770QSU-B1
- Samsung Odyssey G5 S27AG500NU
- Acer Nitro VG270UPbmiipx
- Gigabyte G27Q
- AOC Q27G2S
- Asus TUF VG27AQ and Asus TUF VG27AQ1A (not sure about the difference between IPS and Fast IPS)

Also side note: I haven't yet put my 3070 in my PC, got it very recently, and I was wondering whether I should get a 650, 700, or 750W PSU (current is a 500W one which definitely won't work). I'm gonna get an 80+ Gold probably, from be quiet/Corsair/Seasonic most likely. I have a 5800X that is not OC'd, only PBO+undervolting, 1 M.2 SSD, 1 SATA SSD, 1 SATA HDD, 6 fans total (counting the CPU push-and-pull ones), 4 sticks of DDR4, and my GPU is an OC version (but that's very common). be quiet's calculator for instance estimates the max power draw at 615 with all those details, making 80+ Gold 650W PSUs workable but relatively tight. Should I play safe and get 700/750W or is it overkill?

#3896 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Hello, I was considering making the move to 1440p since my hardware is capable of handling it in most games now, but I'm struggling to pick a good monitor. There are a few on sale this week with all the Black Friday/Cyber w/e Electric Boogaloo25 events, but idk if they're actually good. I'm only considering VA and IPS panels (no TN) because I do a lot of video editing and therefore want good colors and contrast; I also (but less so) care about responsiveness in FPS such as TF2 (though not sure about the difference between MPRT response time and other measurements). 144Hz-165Hz is probably my goal, along with wanting to be able to make use of adaptative sync in more demanding games where useful (I'm not entirely sure about the differences between Premium and basic Freesync, G-SYNC intended and G-SYNC compatible anymore, feel free to tell me if they are actually noticeable; my GPU is a 3070 if that matters).

My current panel is a 1080p144 AOC 24" curved VA from 2018, curved feels nice so I could go for a curved panel again, and I quite liked VA so far so unless IPS has some good arguments for a change I would probably go for VA again. I don't really feel like going above 30", 27" would probably be the sweet spot for 1440p. Ideally I don't want to spend above 350 euros on the monitor unless there are no genuinely good choices below that price tag.

The few 27" VA models that are currently on sale in French shops such as LDLC and Materiel.net are the following:

- MSI 27" Optix G27CQ4 (250€)
- Samsung 27" Odyssey G5 C27G55TQWR (250€)
- Asus TUF VG27WQ1B (330€, 27" IPS version (VG27AQ) at same price, 31.5" VA version (VG32VQ1BR) on sale and cheaper than its 27" counterpart somehow (300€), weird idk lol)

Outside of sales, there's also the ASUS TUF VG27WQ for 350€ I guess. The AOC CQ27G2U and Q27G2U are at 300€, I had a decent experience with AOC on my current panel so that could be a logical path too. The Gigabyte G27QC A is at 270€, just like the Acer Nitro XV272UPbmiiprzx.

Feel free to suggest a completely different model if you think it's worth it, notably even IPS ones if you think I would be better off having IPS instead of VA even though I spend a lot of time editing. If anything in my use case information is unclear feel free to ask for a clarification.

#76 i69: Day 3 - Finals in Events
wonderoflits not crazy, nevermind "delusional." now u didnt give me anything to work with and i feel this is ur own way of getting ur upfrags or whatever, but ill give you my reasoning and if ur an honest person i'll hear out why you disagree.

so after making this, its a bit long and not rly organized so ill just put the button here for anyone that wants to see my reasoning but it reads almost like my notetaking yknow.

compared to usual, froyo was struggling hard against teams they usually wouldnt be, to the point of there being i know at least one 16 minute 5-0 against what i remember as a pugscrim. in my eyes jay being moved from scout is already a negative weighing them down, even with the time to recuperate from that change theyre trading the best scout in the game for a fantastic soldier, its not a trade you wanna make willingly. and while arekks very good and seemed to derust since rgl lan, i can pretty much guarantee he wouldve done even better if he had gotten to properly play the season like on a real team. admittedly though i didnt look at arekk closely this lan, it was mainly rgl lan i specifically looked at him, where things like this were happening. this lan i was paying more attention to chaddie, and to be fair he did play better than i expected but i was expecting something abysmal, the guy hasnt played at this level since i dont know and hes already what i consider a downgrade from marmaloo even if at peak, and its another roster transaction on top of that? it is froyo and none of them are noobs but i still think u can only have so many of those changes before it rly starts hurting u. even after froyo winning it wasnt the team i recognized. i think another thing thats pretty bullshit is i heard that jay didnt feel comfortable going sniper because of something to do with the monitors, and thats just so bad. im not kidding when i say jay sniper is pretty much an integral piece of froyo at this point

like i said i made this longer than i intended but ramblings aside, i hope this at least says im not full of shit and have no basis. i didnt bother watching this lan the first day cuz i was that sure froyo was gonna get creamed. it turns out though that i made the right choice, just for the wrong reason lol

I genuinely do not think you are "full of shit" or "have no basis" as you said, although I must say I had no way to know if you had any of the latter until now and the tone on both occurrences of that one sentence mostly felt like you intended to diss EU teams just cause why not.

Now for the reasons why I believe you are completely out of proportion on your assumption.

- You overestimate how far behind marmaloo & jay paddie & arekk are on their respective roles in terms of mechanics. As you said, neither of them performed too poorly individually speaking: that's simply because they had some time to get back to a level where they were more than decent enough to execute the plays required by their team. The difference in individual mechanical skill involved here is only marginal. Heck, arekk even carried quite a few important teamfights.

- You also overestimate how much marginal differences in individual mechanical skill matter in an international LAN grand final compared to core experience both as a player and as a team. What was one of the biggest factors that explained the massive discrepancy in team performance for Ascent.NA between UBF and GF at i65? Main stage international LAN finals experience, both individually and as a team. Pressure hit them hard. None of the individual skill was fundamentally lacking. paddie and arekk have at least as much, if not more of that experience compared to marmaloo and jay on their respective roles. If b4nny took paddie seriously when he offered to fill in for i69, it's because he knew what part of his skillset mattered most: his past experience with froyotech on the international and continental scene.

- Now I'll admit one important thing regarding my previous point: arguably, the team experience would have been stronger with their long-term roster of this year. That is, they would have been more confident in their usual plays crafted this year. But that's where the specificity of this EU Lan comes in: EU teams are NOT (that roster of) Froyo's usual playground. Not at all. There's a reason we've been discussing how NA vs EU plays out so hard this weekend: it has nothing to do with how NA vs NA plays out! Froyo's usual roster might have been more confident and efficient in teamfights since that is what NA revolves around, but the clash of playstyles induced that there were little to none compared to usual! Do you really believe that one roster would have fared 10 times better against all the last holds, stalemates and banners, when its strength and training experience throughout the year had been exactly the opposite? Marginal mechanical skill differences also take an L with this feature: they arguably matter far less in stalemates than they do in teamfights (save for sniper maybe, but alas the monitors would have been the same no matter the roster...).

The reasoning stands for G6: similar playstyle if not more dm-oriented even, same training experience throughout the year, and similar mechanical skill levels judging from NA Lan/League results.
