#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.

#16 Model Removal Pack 2019 in Customization

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.

#8 Model Removal Pack 2019 in Customization

When I extracted the vpk and compared it to the old one, it seems half the files are missing.

Are they not needed anymore, or should I be copying all of the files over to this new version?

#1796 mastercomfig - fps/customization config in Customization

Just curious why the changelog says "Optimized particles", but the "ConVar.cl_particle_retire_cost" "0.0001" has disappeared from dxsupport_overide? Was it not working?

ComangliaEdit2

Someone ping me in 30 days, I'll explain to everyone exactly what file it is, where to put it, how to add/change volume of basically every sound in the game.

Oh and Fun Fact. This file is blocked by the pure settings in CSGO.

You've been pinged

#1643 mastercomfig - fps/customization config in Customization
zfnI've been having issues with the in-game voice chat. It keeps cutting in and out for all players. Any ideas as to which commands affect this? I'm using the sound_high from 6.8.0.

I didn't realise you've released a 6.10, I'll test that and get back to you.

Also why are so many commands missing in 6.10 compared to 6.8? Are they just not needed now?

6.10 didn't fix my issue, and sound_low makes it worse. I can't pinpoint which command is responsible either.

That didn't work for me, instead I downloaded the other setup.exe file (instead of web-setup) and that seems to have worked.

"Your internet connection seems to be not permitted or dropped out! Please reconnect and click retry to continue installation."

I was on 6.8 previously, and decided to try the latest release today. Tried running as administrator, and clicking retry does nothing. Any suggestions?
