#484 The 120Hz Monitor Thread in Hardware
DivineATzfnWould it be worth spending more for Display Port 1.4 and HDMI 2.0, or is DP1.2 / HDMI 1.4 still perfectly fine?When you buy the AOC 24G2 it will have both a DisplayPort and HDMI cable included.

Nah I meant like this monitor has Display Port 1.2 and HDMI 1.4, whereas some newer, more expensive monitors have HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.4, and was wondering if that was worth the price to invest in newer technology.

Regardless though, I went out and bought this monitor today, and so far so good. The colours were a little funky and very dark compared to my old monitor, but I've calibrated them to my liking now. Would recommend to those also looking for a budget 144hz 1080p monitor.

Thanks, I also came across this one while reading reviews, so I'll probably be going for this one.

#480 The 120Hz Monitor Thread in Hardware

My current monitor Benq XL2411 has HDMI, DVI-D and D-Sub. I was connected to my GTX 1070 by DVI-D @144hz.

I bought a RTX 3070 without checking what ports it had, and it has either Display Port or HDMI. So right now I can only connect to it via HDMI @60hz.

I've heard the Display Port to DVI adapters aren't great, and quite pricey, so my only option seems to be to buy a new monitor with Display Port.

Apologies for reviving this thread, but what's the current go-to monitor for gaming @144hz?

SetsulNo issues.
Yes, for stock the stock cooler will obviously be good enough, overclocked it is indeed the easiest and potentially cheapest option to simply try and see.

That mobo will need a BIOS update to officially support that CPU but since it can be updated without a CPU or RAM installed that shouldn't be a problem.

Gigabyte also hasn't published the QVL (list of officially supported RAM kits) yet, but I'm fairly that RAM will work. If not since you can update the BIOS without having any installed when the new version to improve RAM compatibility is inevitably released that should also be fixable.

Just updating that I finally built my PC over the weekend, and it works great. The 5600x is averaging about 40C at idle, and 70-80C in-game on the stock cooler and balanced power plan. I'll see if I can get any good deals on coolers for Black Friday, if not, then I'll save my money for upgrading my 1070. Thank you again for all your help.

Thank you Setsul that was really helpful.

If I was to go down the AMD route, do you see any issues with the following components (as well as my existing ones):

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor ($469.00 @ Computer Alliance)
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard ($309.10 @ Newegg Australia)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory ($122.10 @ Newegg Australia)
Total: $900.20

I figured I can try the cooler that comes in the box and if temps are no good, I'll grab the Noctua one.

#3739 PC Build Thread in Hardware

My understanding isn't great, but from what I read, I thought I would need either an older gen CPU to first boot and update the bios, then switch it out for the new CPU, or get the computer shop to do it for me. Guess I needed to read into this a little more.

I just chose an AIO cooler as my H60 has given me temps at roughly 20-30C at idle, and 40-50C in-game for the past 7 years. Would the NH-D15 from your post give me these temps still, even while overclocking? Seems like it's the exact same price here in AUS as the H100x one I linked above, plus if it's quieter, and most likely easier to install, I'll go with that.

Yes I'd like my motherboard to have WIFI capabilities, as my living situation is likely to change in the coming months. I've seen both the ASUS and MSI ones for similar prices, but just went with the Gigabyte one as I had no issues with my current Gigabyte one. Let me know if you think they are better alternatives.

I'm sorry but I'm going to need your help with the RAM. I don't really understand what I'm looking for.

So far that leaves me with this:
CPU: Intel Core i5-10600KF 4.1 GHz 6-Core Processor ($359.00 @ Centre Com)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($143.00 @ Newegg Australia)
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z490 AORUS ELITE AC ATX LGA1200 Motherboard ($329.00 @ Umart)
Total: $831.00

#3737 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Hi, I would like to upgrade my current PC which has served me well these past 7 years.

My current PC contains (roughly) this:

I am planning on upgrading the CPU, Mobo, RAM and Cooling and came up with this:

No budget at this stage, I'm just looking for quality parts, good warranties, and ease of install. I will be updating the GPU later on down the track. This PC will be used primarily for gaming (so should I go for the 10600K instead?). I realise these new AMD CPUs may be better, but I'm hearing people having issues with updating the BIOS, so I don't mind going with Intel to avoid that.

Any issues / suggestions / comments are appreciated, but keep in mind that I don't really know what I'm doing. Thanks.

#3562 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Hi all,

While everyone's stocking up on face masks and toilet paper, I'm doing the sensible thing and purchasing a new gaming PC to wait out the 14 day quarantine period if/when it happens.

My budget is preferably <$2500 AUD, with a max at <$3000 if need be.

Do you guys see any red flags with the below:

My plan is to still keep the GTX 1070 from my current PC, and upgrade at a later time if need be. I also plan to switch the power supply to the Corsair one with a 10 year warranty - as my power supply has died on both my previous builds.

My second option is to just go big with this one, (again, keeping my 1070, possibly lowering the RAM down to 16GB, plus ditching the fancy lighting to bring it roughly to the 3k mark, which was the upper end of my limit.

I use my PC daily, and will be planning on playing Doom Eternal and Cyberpunk when they release, plus TF2 on the side. My current PC is from 2015 (i7 4820k, OC'd to 4.3GHz) and have only upgraded the GPU in that time (GTX 760 - 1070). I'm still reasonably happy with how it runs, but think its time for a nice upgrade anyway.

So basically my questions are:
- Any red flags / improvements on the above builds?
- Is the i9 worth the price over the i7?
- I've been seeing replies of people suggesting the 3200MHz RAM, should I upgrade from the 3000MHz in these builds?
- Are these new GPU's worth the hype? I have been able to play all my games on MED-HIGH on my 1070, and am happy with the performance so far.

Thanks all.

I still have the old one if that makes your life any easier?

2018 version here

I may have modified it a little though so I can still keep hats, but everything else is untouched.

What sort of pipes are missing? Let me know what map (and a screenshot if possible) and I'll see if I can fix it.

#26 FPS boost by disabling steamwebhelper in TF2 General Discussion
catman1900I think the library is browser based now

Correct. The -no-browser launch option will prevent your libraries from loading now, but it is still the only way to stop steamwebhelper from loading.

Personally I'm still using it, as you can still launch the game from the notification tray. If I want to browse the steam store, I use firefox for that anyway.
