#3439 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Not sure how I'd score them on reliability.
The XG2402 should be a proven design with the same 24" 144 Hz TN panel everyone has been using for years. Not that different from all the other 24" 144 Hz TN monitors really.
The G2590FX uses one of those 24.5" panels that are usually found in 240 Hz monitors (didn't check the exact panel though) which could mean either it's running well below what it's capable of and might last longer or it's a shit panel and didn't make the cut, which would suggest the opposite.

Well not the CPU itself really.
The RAM runs slower and the connection to it also runs slower so it's much more noticeable.

Doesn't mean it's running at 3000 MHz if you didn't set it to 3000 MHz.

Not sure why these two are the options. Why did you choose these two specifically, son?

So you know the performance isn't what it should be and your solution is to throw 700$ at the problem and hope it disappears?

Clean windows install, clean TF2 install, clean config. Before that don't even think about blaming the hardware.

Well how many fps are you getting now? Don't expect miracles.

On average.
Are we talking about the 9900K? How close do you think it'll be while streaming with 8 cores vs 12 cores?

You could also just use GPU encoding.

Just because they cost about the same doesn't mean they perform the same.

No, updating a BIOS is not hard.

I still don't know why you're upgrading.

Depends on the mobo, how hard you're going to oc and whether you want PCIe 4.0.
A decent B450/X470 board should do just fine.

Just upgrading for the sake of uprading is pointless though. If everything runs as well as you want/need it to just wait, there'll always be better hardware next year.

The 5700 XT is cheaper and faster, it's hard to argue with that. Definitely go for an aftermarket version though, there's only so much the single fan reference cooler can do.

Thanks, it's been almost 6 years now.

In TF2 yes. Everything else depends on the game and settings.

More importantly is the question really "would a Ryzen 7 2700X bottleneck a 2080" or is it "would a 2080 be bottlenecked by a Razen 7 2700X"? If it's the former I'd ask you why you're not buying a 3700X instead and if it's the latter I'd ask what you're buying the 2080 for.

Why would it not work?
Any bottleneck that would affect a 5700 XT would also affect a 2070.

I appreciate the attempt. I really do.
So I didn't want to complain immediately and waited to see whether the problem I actually mind was fixed.
It's not and now the unread postcount is also wrong.
But we're getting there, fixing this might be trial and error but we'll get there.

Oh it would be 8 bit without FRC. FRC is basically interpolation to emulate 8 bit colours with a 6 bit panel. Either way 8 bit is the better one so we'll go with that.

Ok so the cheapest curved 8 bit also got FreeSync.
HDMI only I think.

Straight 8 bit and FreeSync we got
VGA (obviously no FreeSync on that), HDMI and DisplayPort.
Same thing with DVI instead of DP and a bit cheaper.
DVI doesn't support FreeSync though so using it would be a waste and you'd be better off with a monitor without FreeSync. Perfectly viable way of saving money if you're going to use HDMI though.

They all got tilting but nothing else.
If you don't need/want FreeSync there are cheaper straight 8 bit monitors, no curved ones though.

Excellent, so the mobo was definitely worth it.

Yeah low end TN panels do that. It's hard to find reviews for budget monitors so I'll have to go mostly by specs.
Flicker-free VA/IPS 23.6" or 23.8" should be a good starting point. Then there's still two choices to be made:
1. Curved or straight, which I guess comes down to preference.
2. Which features you want on top of that. Adjustable height, tilt, etc. if you need it, FreeSync (no eye cancer with 24/25 fps if your player doesn't deal with that), 8 bit instead of 6 bit + FRC (in theory slightly better colours) or stretching the budget and getting a combination e.g. for 8 bit + FreeSync there's some options around 110-120£.

Out of curiosity: Did you have to update the BIOS?

Anyway, this depends a bit on what you think are "pretty good colours" and whether you want 24". 1080p is a given but both IPS and 24" would be difficult. 24" TN and 20-23" IPS are very doable though.

Yeah but this thread has been affected for months if not years now by the same nuking. It's been fixed manually before (after a whole bunch of posts got nuked iirc) so maybe it's time to dig up enigma.

Then stop stealing our currency. Or join.
Good luck in your search for pc parts in your mystery country.
