Want help?
State budget & CURRENCY
Post at least some attempt at a parts list
List your uses, e.g. Gaming, Video Editing, VM Work
For monitors, include purpose (e.g., photoediting, gaming) and graphics card pairing (if applicable)

CPUs based on current pricing:
Athlon 200GE - HTPC, web browsing, bare minimum gaming (can be OC'd on most mobos with the right BIOS)
R3 2200G - Recommended minimum gaming
R5 2600 - Good gaming CPU with great value
R5 3600 - Great gaming CPU
R7 3700X - Overkill gaming CPU (9900K for spendthrifts)
R7 1700X - Budget video editing
R9 3900X - Professional tasks

RAM:
Do not use a single DIMM. 2 sticks ONLY for a typical dual channel CPU
CPUs benefit from fast RAM; 3200CL16 minimum
AMD B & X chipsets and Intel Z chipsets support XMP

GPUs based on current pricing:
1080p
RX 570/580 8GB - Can be found on sale for cheap. Look for 570s which are >1240MHz boost
GTX 1660 - higher fps / more demanding games
RX 5700 - even higher FPS
1440p
RX 5700 - basic
RX 5700XT - standard
RTX 2070 Super - higher framerates in SOME games
2160p (4K)
RTX 2070S OC - budget option. Turing performance scales better into 4K than Navi does.
2080Ti - best for 4K but expensive

Navi launch drivers have issues, esp. w/ OC. Wait for AIB if considering the XT. 5700 blower is alright, due to low power. AIB models come mid-August.

seconding the question. I've decided to buy 5700 XT, but I mostly play old games
VERY bad idea, AMD drivers have very finicky support for old games.
Some don't work at all, some work but with issues, such as stuttering frametime, or being unable to run a game with certain video settings, like soft shadows, or making transparent object actually transparent.

Nathaniel Richardson

Replace the SSD with something better value. 970 evo doesn't perform any faster in games than the MX500.
Wait for 5700 XT AIB cards. 2070 is poor value even at $400. Or just get the 5700 now if you can't wait.

I mean can you describe this in more detail?
What game, what is the actual fps, or does it flicker even in destrop, what monitor settings do you have enabled, what about MBR settings and so on?
It's probably not user error, but doesn't hurt to check.

Gimping their new CPUs and mobos just to work with older boards isn't a winning or consumer friendly strategy
it's hard to avoid when they're actually advancing their architecture

the people really at fault are those who sold noobs the idea that they could go out and buy B450s and X470s new in order to play 3000s, when such a feature should have been viewed as a sop to those already in the AMD ecosystem to get them to upgrade CPU without putting a mobo purchase as a barrier

Kotor 1 and likely kotor 2 as well though haven't personally tested
There are some I personally tested, there is more probably as you really don't get a wonderful list of this shit before you buy a GPU, only after you buy it, install it and decide to play an older game do you find out about this kind of shit. Considering everybody praises AMD drives and says how they are so much better now, youd expect something else. But it turns out when they say "its much better now" they mean "for the latest games, amd actually put in enough effort where games don't have massive issues", but they did fuck all to go back and fix those issues form the past.

And without posting that KOTOR lie that got spammed despite being BTFO.
It's not a lie though you faggot and it was not BTFO as you claim. Some amd shill went heavy into damage control, shitposted and say it's all fake and a lie, despite many people on the net reporting such issues and a lot of the fixes don't work.
Some dude said he would test it with his AMD gpu, and never did.

Just do a google search on something like
AMD gpu Kotor frame buffer effects crash
AMD gpu Kotor soft shadows crash
You will get tons of people mentioning it and people offering solutions, I have tried personally every single solution and none of them worked, the only way to make the game no crash on a vega and newer gpus is to disable soft shadows and frame buffer effects which is responsible for many effects in the game, such as making invisible, transparent characters actually see through.

Wow, again I heard of flicker issues with aoc c24g1 when it switches from normal freesync to low frame rate compensation, but your issue sounds unbearable.
I guess your best cope solution would be to use 144hz or 120hz with MBR so you get at least a clearer image, and as I know the 120hz MBR should be brighter with a vertical total tweak.

Nothing wrong with it in principle, it's only a question of whether baords with less memory than the X570s will be able to continually support the 3000s to the same degree ast the X570s

Ditch 16gb of the the RAM, get E-die or B-die 16gb if you can.
ditch the HDD unless you need it for non-gaming things, HDDs are all but obsolete unless you need the full amount of space on them and can't afford the equivalent in SATA SSDs
Contrary to what people say you might as well get the NVME SSD if you are going for 1440p. Not because it'll translate into better gaming performance but because the performance of the SSD is better for relatively little markup.
Ditch the CPU cooler, the stock AMD cooler is fine. There's also no point to going down to a 3600x if you can afford the 3700x.
You should try and get the 2070 super or maybe a 2080/2080s if you can afford those.

Everybody laughed at the Q6600 back then saying its cores weren't needed in vidyas, then 3 years later everybody had to change their CPUs while Q6600 owners were still fine, and were for many more years. Only get a 3600 if you plan to change your CPU in the next 3 years. Get a 3700X if you intend, to keep it for like 6 or 7 years.

Apperantly AMD is sending out boot kits for older motherboards, Or you could pick up a 1st gen Ryzen 3 for pennies and use that to flash BIOS.

Robert Sanders

Supposedly the CPU is supposed to go under 1v when idle, and the 1.25-1.35v range is what it would be under normal load.

While looking at Ryzen Master, all the CCs seem to go into sleep mode until it hits around 45 degrees, after which usage spikes to 4200MHz for a second which makes it jump to 55-60 degrees, after which they go back to sleep and normal speeds until it falls to 45 degrees again where it just repeats that constantly.
Definitely something going wrong but it doesn't seem too big of an issue outside of the stock cooler being a bit loud

5700(xt) pcb is really similar to r9-era cards. if you have a blower 5700 and a r9-series aib model, try transplanting the cooler. i'm gonna try out my msi 390 8g.

Also the 5700's clock lock at 1800-something can apparently be bypassed by using soft powerplay tables (registry entries).

Little bit of info, that motherboard you're buying should entitle you to a free AIO loop cooler for the CPU from MSI, I have one of the MPG series and I've signed up for that promotion, it'll be better than the Hyper 212 I should think, but it depends on stock levels if you get it or not, they're literally just throwing $60 coolers at X570 owners for free. If I get mine I'll probably stick it on ebay, unless the stock cooler is bad

Around 20-35%.
Would really go for the 8 core though when you're already on a 1600.

get the $40 off bundle for 3600x+5700 on newegg and put arctic accelero on it unless it's really worth waiting a month for that 15% performance increase for more money.

lian li has an older one but I forget the name.
I really prefer vertical layouts like the silverstone FT-03 though, or slim like the thermaltake g3.

Trust me, you don't know joy until you've played with the smoothness of 144fps, you won't go back.
Take a single player fast paced shooter like Doom - those quick flicks will actually look CLEARER than 4k 60fps.

In all seriousness, you can upscale 1440p-1800p with CAS and generally get at least 90fps in a lot of those games.
90fps is reasonably smooth, and you're still getting good quality.
2160p drastically tanks performance on current generation GPUs, even the 2080ti.

The irony is that the value sensitivity that's more common with AMD buyers, which drives them to tinker to get the absolute best performance, means they're outperforming the drop-in brainlets who think they have a better performing CPU but they don't as a result of that.

If you can get the glass version significantly cheaper then do that and paint the inside of the glass panel black.

4k is a meme, it won't even be noticeable at the monitor sizes that are applicable to gaming. The absolutely biggest monitor you can comfortably play on is 32'' and more than 1440p on it is a waste.

Like the other user said, you might want to wait for custom 5700XT cards. Will be cheaper, and it has non-meme features.

You know the 2080Ti is only about 35-40% higher perf over the $400/$500 5700XT/2070S, right? That's what you're paying 150% more for, a 35% increase. It's pretty pathetic.

The 5700 (non-XT) is so low power that the blower is perfectly fine. It's just the XT, which is higher power, that you want to avoid the blower on.
Pretty easy choice with the 5700 when it performs better than the 2060Super, let alone the regular shitty 6GB 2060, yet is cheaper.

That's fine if it's just for Windows and you have a better secondary drive for your games and applications.

Sup guys. I want to build a PC and I'm currently on the fence about which GPU to buy. It's between the 5700 XT (wait for AIB) and 2070S. Usually I'd go with the 5700 XT, because it makes way more sense from a price/performance standpoint, but I've heard that AMD GPUs are worse at handling emulation and older games. Both of those points are important to me, as I tend to keep all parts for 5 years at least. I'll just lead my cons and pros for each card and ask you to tell me what you think. I don't care about raytracing, both of these cards will be outdated by the time it will be mainstream. My monitor is freesync but works with nvidia so that's a non-issue:

5700XT
- better price/performance
- not giving money to the NVIDIA jew
- will probably age better

2070 S
- slightly better performance now
- better at emulation (openGL) and older games (?)

If you care about older games.

So the result is

5700XT
- better price/performance

2070 S
- slightly better performance now
- better at emulation (openGL) and older games (?)

Choose what you find more important, older games and better performance. Or if you only play new games and care more about getting most for your money.

Firstly: Stop being a corporate drone, keep that shit in /v/
Secondly: AMD is worse in opengl, yes, but for most older emulators you should be fine, and CEMU is getting Vulkan soon
Thirdly: Do NOT buy 5700XT until it has better cooling, right now it’s prone to overheating and crashing after 30 minutes of gaming

Henry Taylor

As per OP:
Budget very flexible more an issue of value, USD
see attached for parts lists
games and video upscaling are the only demanding things i do although i probably spend more time in irc/browser/foobar

My goals here:
upgrade to freesync so I can buy either nv or amd in the future
slightly smaller, better looking far quieter case
replace my mish-mash of fans with ones that are very good but also all sound the same
go all air cooling, case+fans+cpu cooler will last 10+ years
finally replace dead 980ti/fall back gtx760 in preparation for Doom Eternal/Gears 5/Halo/Diablo 4

Notes:
I have 2 23" 1080p 144hz and that dell right now. I'm either going to sell my 1440p dell and keep the triple monitor set up or sell both 1080p's and go back to dual monitors.

I think I could probably get away with just a 1660, 1660ti even at 1440p 144hz right now but it's more an issue of the 5700XT being an insane overclocker, hating nvidia's anticonsumer bs, and planning to eventually replace the blower with something custom anyway.

I could just buy a 2060 super, slap it in, and be good. So many options I'm kind of stuck.

No real evidence of this except sometimes you need to use a directx wrapper for old openGL games, but that's also recommended for Nvidia as well and just less required.

Only reason to get a 2070S is because, yes, you're too much of a brainlet to get an artic accelero, and/or can't wait a month for custom cards, and will spend and extra $40-$100 for that.

Your current CPU is going to bottleneck an RX580, let alone a 5700 XT. lol.
4c/4t stutters like shit, even at 5GHz.
And I'd get a better monitor. $300 for a TN is shit.
The other parts of your upgrade are fine.

Finally upgrading to up to date stuff. My GPU has a 6-pin slot and an 8-pin slot. Do I need to fill both? It came with a pitiful little cable that appears to be an adapter . Two 6-pins to an 8-pin. My gut says just use the 6+2 from my PSU and I should be fine.

OH BOY here we fucking go.

Kotor 1, no framebuffer effects(stealth being trasnparent, lot of visual effects) and soft shadows can't be used otherwise game crashes and there is no other fix for it.

Witcher 1 has constant fps dips and unstable framerate, talking about a vega that's twice are powerful as a nvidia card, yet the nvidia card provides stable framerate and even higher fps.

Quantum break, underutilization with vega card, leading to constant dips in fps and lower over all performance.
Talking about a 2060 having stable 60fps while a vega 64 was struggling to get stable 40fps.

Games like Generals and Generals Zero hour, literally don't work.

And before you start with shit.
Using the same system but with clean driver instal and nvidia card, none of the issues are present.
Yes, I have tried both win 10 and win 7.
No problems on the nvidia card, and consistent issues with older games like mentioned above with amd card.

The CPU is running at 4.8ghz and has very good ram with it, I don't think it's going to bottleneck anything at a measly 144fps, if it were a 240hz 1080p monitor I would agree.
It ties or beats the 2600x in average and minimums at GTA V, Witcher 3, Battlefield 1, Total war and that's with inferior ram to mine.
I plan to upgrade to a used 8700k(trivial to mod z170 board for it) when 10th gen launches and drops used prices on it.
$300 for a 1440p 144hz monitor is a great price. I paid less for my current version of it(almost identical) and it's a great monitor don't have a single complaint.
So are you saying I should buy a new CPU/mobo right now and if so based on what source and which cpu/mobo?
You think a $500+ 27" 1440p 144hz is worth the dramatic price increase? I'm going off this

The S2719DGF is a very good monitor for gaming. It is very responsive to your actions due to the very low input lag and its extremely fast response time ensures that fast moving content will have very little blur. It has great resolution and large size that allow you to see every detail of your game. Finally, it supports FreeSync that prevents tearing and can be overclocked up to 155Hz to enhance your gaming experience.

Because the AIO is loud and like I said silence is a goal for the upgrade here. It's also running at 4.8ghz and I'm going to delid it and go for 5ghz.
Also plan to get a new CPU at some point over the next two years, probably a used 8700k(easy to mod my mobo for it saving $150) when 10th gen launches reducing used prices.
I'm not trying to be like arrogant or anything I really appreciate the help, just explaining my point of view/train of thought here.

Which I have found no way to fix. There is some suggestion on the net of try this and that, I have tired literally every single one and didn't get the shit like soft shadows and frame buffer effects to work.

but it's not "just werkz" on Nvidia either
Literally the extent of trouble shooting on old games with nvidia for me has been "enable windows xp or some other comparability mode" and that's it, it works.

Every week you have some new bullshit lying slimy tactic that you spam.
I have brought up REAL issues I have had to face after getting a AMD gpu. I have spent no less than a FUCKING week trying to troubleshoot some of these games.
I had none of these fucking problems and in fact the best "troubleshooting fix" is to just fucking take out the AMD GPU and stick in my old nvidia GPU in.
It's literally the most secure and fastest way to trouble shoot all of the problems, compatibility issues and performance issues for old games.
Unfortunately the fastest solution is still too slow, as taking the pc apart, putting it back together and uninstalling and installing new drivers in a clean form takes time.

And yet every time all of this is brought up, you say "you were BTFO last time", every time you have NO FUCKING ANSWER other than "in the imaginary past you were BTFO"

It fucking disgusts me to my core as a human being that there is such a fucking amd shill out there, that keeps this kind of damage control constant, just so people would be less aware of issues.

Doesn't matter. Many tests prove that even a 5GHz 7600k/6600k with fast RAM will stutter like shit in dozens of games.

That's hilarious, considering it uses a lot more power than the 3600, performs virtually the same, yet is never going to be that cheap. Look at what used 4790k and 7700k still go for. That shit is price fixed.

But whatever. Upgrade your GPU and when you see the stutters you'll know why.

If it's only 15% more than the 5700XT, go for it.

so is it confirmed that those issues are specific to new radeons and not just the newest graphic cards in general?
It's a driver issue, not a GPU issue.
Amd if they wanted could fix it easily with drivers, and in fact people have asked them to.
Some of the older drivers for instance let you play Generals without crashing, but then they moved to newer drivers and just removed that shit. OH and just so you know that was specific to generals running, it does not fix framerate issues in other games or utilization problems. Doesn't fix things like certain video effects not working either, but at least it shows that older drives can make certain games run.
And thus it's a driver issue.
Amds response was
games are too old and not work our time to fix.
They literally don't care. Which is a stark contrast to the "fine whine" meme, where amd fags pretend that automatically the more time passes, the better AMD drivers get. While in reality some shit never gets fixed and they just move on to the newest games.

maybe it works on you old nvidia, bacause it's just old? I'm willing to pay extra for 2070 SUPER even when it probably won't be as future proof as 5700 XT, if it means less problems in older games
I don't believe so, but don't take my word or anybody else on it. Search the webm, put 2060 or 2070 and "issue with old games" or even the games mentioned.

I am looking for a new monitor to join the old one. I had 2 previously but the second one was old and small (desk size restrictions which no longer matter) and my work wanted to offer me a new second monitor cause working with a single one is very annoying if you run things like Maya.

Currently I have a Dell P2210 (16:10 1680x1050) screen and it is 90 degrees tillable so I am thinking of turning it on the side as the new secondary monitor. I'll let my work buy a nice monitor to use as my main.

Since I presume the system will not instantly recognize the tilted screen is there anything that I need to keep recon with? Is this something you easily adjust in Windows? Or do I need something extra?

Few questions Jow Forumsents.
Is this close to ideal ram for the new Ryzen cpus?
Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black, PC4-28800 (3600), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 18-22-22-42, XMP 2.0, 1.35V
£160 for 32gb, I definitely want 32 gb btw. Also considering getting 2 x 16gb stcks instead of 4x8gb.

Also looking to refresh my PSU and not using my trusty Corsair 600 watt bronze. (been fine for many years btw)
650W EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1+, Full Modular, 80PLUS Gold, SLI/CrossFire, Single Rail, 54A, 135mm Fan, ATX PSU
£65

All bias aside, do you think 9900k or 3900x? I heard about 9900k temps but these new Ryzen chips seem hot af sometimes with how they handle voltages etc (probably be rectified down the line obviously) and unpredictable.
Both around the same price, 9900k cheaper.

Any major downsides to going 3900x instead of 3700x/3600? Other than money lel
I don't want to side grade you see, I use my computer for a variety of tasks, so I will notice the strengths/weaknesses of whatever I get.

If I fucked up in my items I picked, any advice would be greatly appreciated in terms of PSU and ram. I don't get all this e-die and b-die stuff desu.

3900X. Better perf/watt, security, never know if you'll pick up a hobby which uses more cores, better in the most demanding games like KCD, etc.
Any major downsides to going 3900x instead of 3700x/3600
Some benchmarkers showed performance regression with the 3900X worse than the 3700X, but that seems to be a bug with FCLK breaking from MCLK which will be fixed in BIOS. Jayz2cents did a test with locking the FCLK to MCLK, and the performance gains are significant (~10%) and don't have that regression issue.

What games?
Some are fine on 4c/4t. Like IIRC the new DmC runs fine on that, and so do pretty much all the "esports" games.
Some games are insufferable, even with a 5GHZ OC, and will constantly dip to 30fps or worse.
I had to close out my web browser even to play very light games on my 2500k. a 7600k is not that much better.

Correct.
It is a bug in the BIOS that auto isn't syncing it, though.

Would go for 1TB, at least in the US it's only like 50% more money for double the storage, but otherwise good.

for honor definitely runs a shitload better with at least 6c/12t, but yeah still does 60fps fine on 4c/4t.
But part of it can be placebo of the fps counter which is averaged out over many frames, while you're just somehow not noticing the stutters themselves.

I'd been considering a used 6700 or 6700k since like that I wouldn't have to change my mobo and here they're considerably cheaper than 7700/7700k, but I honestly don't really need it. So far games run fine, my work doesn't really need much horsepower and even then it's mostly single core. I'll probably switch to Ryzen 4000 (or next gen intel who knows) in a few years, but I'm doing okay now.
I used to play For Honor at 40fps on full low on a 960m + 6300hq, and even then until late 2016 I had an i3 3110m and a 520mx, so my 7600k still feels pretty sanic.

Here the 3600 is a whole hundred more yuros than the 2600, so I'll probably get one of those if my 7600k dies, I've already got decent ram too. (3000 c15). It was a few months back that I was considering a used 6700, there were a bunch for around 150€, which was cheaper than the 2600 at the time, and before the latest security issues.

My shitty b450 mortar has it and didn't fix a damn thing
Those who already don't have this version will never have it because the bios storage is not enough, hence why the release new motherboards.
You are doomed to have gimped performance now for falling for the "muh am4 compatibility" meme

Why would you get a 9700K?
Do you have a specific use-case where it excels?

Jackson Lopez

Yeah shut the fuck up retard you have literally no idea what you're talking about.
Like how the fuck do you think the mortar can have it but a pro carbon can't? Makes zero sense.
Try actually explain your "problems".

Is 1660ti the best card in the $250-$270 range? Just got a 3600 and want something decent that I can wait like two years to upgrade

No you fuckstick. The new ones will only have the flashy bios UI back and support shitty obsolete APUs nobody owns.
NOTHING ELSE
THERE IS NO PERFORMANCE LOSS
16MB IS PLENTY FOR ANY FUTURE AGESA
STOP BEING DUMB YOU FUCK

the problem literally is being resolved, the only real thing that's going to be done is a compromise, and you are crying because you're losing the fancy GUI.

The only fucking reason why everyone is crying is not the size of the EEPROM, it's the fucking UI, which is hilarious because everyone in Jow Forums should be assumed to have experience using the legacy BIOS for fucking once their lives.

Are there any companies I can get to build my PC if I buy components separately?
Maybe a chain of brand cuz there’s no way I’m going to some shitty side store

At least it actually does exist, unlike the 3800X.

Jason Perez

Look, if I’m spending thousands on components then I want someone else to be liable for the setup. I have no issues paying more for someone competent to do it for me, since I am a brainlet.

No because going to the toilet doesn’t potentially cost me 3 grand you pretentious twat.
Are there companies I can hire to do assembly for me or not?

I'm torn between these for an R7 3700X with 3200Mhz CAS16:

Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO - 116€
VS
MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC - 140€

I know the MSI has better VRM and WiFi/BT.
I don't need the WiFi/BT and according to the chart bellow, the Gigabyte can perfectly handle an overclocked 3700X.
docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1d9_E3h8bLp-TXr-0zTJFqqVxdCR9daIVNyMatydkpFA/htmlview?sle=true#gid=639584818

The board is also going to be used with an R5 1600X for a while.
Does the Gigabyte have any compatibility problems with 1st and 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs that I should be aware of, or should I go with the MSI?

Do you mean X570 mobos? Those are much more expensive.
What do you mean gimped? Are you talking about the bugged BIOS?

I know in Canada, retailers like Canada Computer and Memory Express give you the option to pay for assembly of your PC. It think it's $50 service.
