    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    Depending on the game, yes, it would be fine. It'll run most current games at High/Ultra at 1440p, but if you get a 120+ Hz display you'd need to drop the settings back a bit to accomplish those...

    Thread: GP suggests PC builds

    Would depend on what card you're looking to get. From a quick look it seems you could save $50-$200 on a 2070 Super or 5700 XT by buying it in Australia. At $50 its probably pretty marginal whether...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    Depending on what your definition of "affordable" is and what games you play, this is asking for a lot. The 2080 Ti does not do 144 fps @ 1440p Ultra in just about any modern game, and even not so...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    The vast majority of the consumer base for graphics cards are in the <US$300 bracket. nVidia bets, probably rightly so, that the people chasing the best performance will pay a premium for it. AMD...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    It will depend on competition as much as anything else. AMD currently has the performance and price advantage and a lot of good-will from the community; they're not the ones who have to move right...

    Thread: Questions about undervolting.

    Undervolting is fine. It will reduce heat and current draw across the board, which is almost always a good thing. Whether it makes a meaningful difference to the lifespan of components is hard to...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    Plus, you know, they're just projections. From Intel itself, no less. Will have to see real reviews with actual production/gaming benches to see if its decent.

    At this point, its about pricing....

    Thread: Yet another need new gaming rig advice thread

    System seems decently balanced, and has a 2070 Super that is faster than the 5700 XT you were thinking of getting. IMO you shouldn't be spending $2.6k and only getting 500GB of SSD storage, though....

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    The Sapphire and PowerColor ones that GN tested were 120-135W power target. 1650 Super are 100W, though I guess an OC BIOS could have a higher target than that.

    Thread: GPU loud af

    Yep, temperature will determine the fan curve. 100% fan speed at 70C is probably a little low for it to be running at 100% fan, but it depends on whether that's edge temp or junction temp (its...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    5500XT reviews are out. Looks crap in general; within a couple percentage points of a 1650 Super but more expensive. Here in Australia the 1650 Super is $279-$299, whereas the 5500XT 4GB starts at...

    Thread: GP suggests PC builds

    They use 2080 Tis with 1080p to remove graphics as the limiting factor; its better for testing future performance as well as present. As for the rest, we're not talking about theoretically putting...

    Thread: GP suggests PC builds

    I was comparing the 9700K to the 3700X he linked in his pcpartpicker list, which is $570. In gaming performance, the 9700K is faster than the 3700X by 10%ish, depending on the title. It also...

    Thread: GP suggests PC builds

    There's nothing really pushing nVidia to release new graphics cards at the high end. The 5700XT is a 2070/2070 Super competitor, and while AMD have said they plan on releasing higher end cards and...

    Intel's Comet Lake processors and the Z490 chipset are rumoured to launch in April 2020, so right around the time Cyberpunk comes out. There's no process node shrink so performance uplift is likely...

    Thread: GP suggests PC builds

    The 660p is not the drive I would pick for an expensive build. If you could swing it, a 970 Evo Plus would be a much better choice over the long-term. They offer very good performance for the price....

    Apparently those Zalman PSUs are hot garbage, so you should probably replace that as a matter of course anyway.

    I doubt its the PSU. It does sound like a power delivery or memory problem given the hard resetting it was doing, but generally you would expect a graphics or straight PSU power draw problem to be...

    Thread: How do you manage/track your finances? (Budgeting, Tracking Apps etc)
