Yes you could just get a 1660ti and wouldn't need to change anything. As for the case it comes with 2 fans, but I would recommend moving the one of the top to the front of the case for better air flow. You can add more fans if you want. They are relatively cheap. If you want something that offers a bit of looks then some RGB fans would be good for that. Like these.

You can get so much more for your money. I do not recommend over spending on your case relative to your budget just for looks. This will do far better at anything. More RAM, a much better GPU, and the main difference in the case in looks.

Absolutely on the cooler. There are plenty of other options for a similar price. As far as the case goes the compatibility filter will make sure the case will be fine. Also no need to go with only 32gb of RAM. The cooler won't cost much more at all.

Alright this is a little over but you did say you have some wiggle room. 12 cores 24 threads will be great for editing. And there is plenty of options for upgrade in the future. 64gb of RAM at a decent speed. A 1tb NVMe SSD as an OS drive and scratch drive for projects and a 4tb HDD for large files and other stuff. The 1660 will let you game at 1080p, 1440p, and some games 4k with little problems. And will help with editing. Cases are mostly subjective. I recommend finding one that you like. I just chose this one because I think it looks good. A windows 10 license, a 4k monitor, a mechanical keyboard, and great mouse.

You can get much better performance for cheaper. That 1070 is way over priced. You can get a Vega 56 which is more powerful and cheaper. The 2600x will have a really hard time hitting the 144fps to match the monitor's refresh rate. So an Intel CPU would be much better for this.

It would be better to spend a little bit more and get a 1920x. The 1900x is caters to an extreme niche market, in not non existent market, considering that this is only $50 more and you get an extra 4 cores and 8 threads.

Yeah reusing the RAM won't really by a good option since it is DDR2. Well at least that is what I have gathered from the fact that your motherboard only supports DDR2. Which has been outdated for almost 10 years now. Case Fans and PSU should be good, but I would like to know which PSU specifically you have, just out of curiosity. Anyway this would probably be the best bang for your buck.

Nothing other than the software I used to monitor RAM usage and Steam. Games use more than 8gb of RAM. Welcome to 2019.

Forum Topic "GTx 1050 ti"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 19 hours ago

Well I ran into problems gaming with only 8gb of RAM. And having 16gb and actually being able to run games at higher settings is more worth it then the 1 or 2 fps gained from faster RAM. 8gb is the minimum for modern gaming. Not plenty. Not even close. Modern games will run over 8gb. I have seen games I play eat up to 12gb. Higher speeds make little difference for gaming. Especially on Ryzen when you won't be running at extremely high framerates anyway so any advantage there would be lost by the fact that it won't be able to hit higher than 120 fps on average anyway, if that. And yes it does depend on the games but let's just assume we are talking about modern AAA games.

Nullarc77 3 Builds 2 points 19 hours ago

My apologies, I thought it was understood that I would be buying mostly used. The new parts would be storage, case, cooler, and PSU.

Yeah that wasn't really clear at all.

Sandy Bridge can equal and even exceed first gen Ryzen's capabilities, especially with slow 2400 MHz RAM.

Why do you specify first gen Ryzen? The performance difference between first and second gen is extremely minimal. And while I understand what you are saying the "slow" 2400mhz RAM would still be faster then what you can get. While I am not arguing with your decision to buy sandy bridge since you are buying used this is statement makes little sense. Also got any benchmarks to show it beating the 1700? Because I can't find any directly comparing them, but what I have found is that in most cases it matches the performance of the 1600.

Additionally, B350 boards often have issues with the 8 core chips as their VRMs are not usually up to the task.

I have not seen much evidence of this. Sure some boards may have troubles but I have never seen any. If it were true across most b350 board then why is it that the 8 core Ryzen chips were the first ones released and often bought with b350 boards. Got any articles about this? Would love to read them.

The SSD is also too small. His requirement was SSD+ 1 TB HDD.

Well you did say anything about storage so I just took a guess.

Most of what you said makes very little sense. Are you going to buy the parts like the CPU used? Because if not it would be stupid to get them. Also what do you mean by

I chose a dead platform because this is his first PC, so something basic is better than something newer and more complicated

This makes no sense.

Anyway you can get better 6 core processors, even 8 core processors for cheap. If you are buying new then again it would be stupid to buy a Sandy Bridge CPU. Better to go with Ryzen. I mean for $800 you can get this which will be far better then any used CPU from that generation.

The 2600x is kinda overpriced. You can get a 1700 for less it has 2 more cores and 4 more threads. It does have a lower clock speed but you can overclock it so that won't have much of an impact if at all. The stock cooler is more than enough to cool the CPU even once overclocked. And there will be new CPUs on the AM4 platform later this year with much better clocks and likely(but still as of yet unconfirmed) higher core counts. Since the CPU doesn't have integrated graphics the GT 1030 will offer support for 4k displays. The Samsung SSD is kinda over priced since you can get similar performance and capacity for much cheaper.

AMD already said(like 2 years ago and reconfirmed it several times) that everything up to Zen 3 will use the AM4 platform. And that even an a320 motherboard will just need a bios update to support new chips as they come out. So you are perfectly fine. Since the 3000 series will only be Zen 2.

The 1600 is a decent mid range CPU. And in the future can be easily replaced with a 3000 series Ryzen CPU. 16gb of RAM is plenty for modern gaming. The 1660 is the best GPU at it's price point currently. On average beating it's most direct competitor, the RX 590.

New Ryzen CPUs will be releasing later this year with much higher clock speeds and probably higher core counts. So I would go for the much cheaper 1700 for now. Same core count and once overclocked there is not much difference between the 1700 and 2700x. Other than that I don't see any problems.

And yet for gaming this would outperform any AMD chip in it's price range even tho it's locked. It's turbo hits the max overclock of current AMD chips. The only advantage of AMD is if you do heavy multitasking or streaming while you play games. And you have better future upgrades on the AMD platform. But if you are the kind of person to just buy a CPU that runs well and rarely upgrade than this would be a great option unlocked or not.

My entire point was about trust, something you brought up in saying that if somebody does not trust me to have a gun even though I am on private land and have permission from the land owner, and the person who owns, then I should not be allowed to have it.

Here is the exact quote.

This is a HUGE problem IMO. If someone doesn't trust you to do something it shouldn't be OK to do it because some other person does truck you. **** NO.

You literally just said your own argument was moot. Because your argument was one about trust. Mine was it does not matter if I trust them or not. If I don't trust somebody that much with a car than I will not ride with them driving and if I don't trust somebody with a gun then I will not be around them. But I can't do anything about them having a car or a gun. And becuase my argument was not about the deaths by cars. I was using your own opinion in a different scenario that it could easily be applied to. I just chose death by cars at random.

By your argument, heart attacks are more dangerous than guns and we should regulate heart attacks.

Well to state it again that wasn't my argument, it was ypur just applied to a different situation. So to do that again. Each year more people in the US are murdered by knives than Rifles. So if I don't trust somebody who has a knife does that mean that shouldn't have a knife? No. If they haven't done anything then me not trusting them is just that. Me not trusting them. Shortly before I moved to Texas it was made legal to open carry almost any blade of any length to provide a bit more context. There are people I know that I don't think should have a knife on them. But that is not my call. I can't do anything anout. I am just alert to them if they are acting stupid in case theu are putting ithers in danger, so if they are I can neutralize the situation. My opinion of a person does not matter. If a person has a rignt to something then I am nlt going to stand in their way.

Thats ridiculous

You know what is ridiculous. Taking part of what somebody and ignoring the context around it to form an argument against them. Because that is what you just did. You took something that I was using as an example for your own argument, ignored the context around it, and claimed it was my argument. That is ridiculous.

Thats your opinion.

It is why few people are recommended to get an open carry permit. Because if somebody intent on doing harm sees your gun than they will shoot you first so they will encount less resistance. It is why everyone I know that has a conceal carry permit, had an instructor at one of their courses tell them "Don't go around bragging that you conceal carry. Because if somebody intends on doing harm they will kill you first." and it's also why many instructers tell people to get the proper holster for their weapon. In other words don't get a holster designed for open carry and use it for conceal carry because it sticks out and is extremely obvious amd anyone can see it. Whereas if you have the proper holster and don't go around telling people than if somebody is intent on doing harm, you have a far greater chance of being able to stop them than if they know you have a gun. It's common sense. If people don't know you are their boggest threat they won't try and kill you first.

Sorry for amy gramatocal mistakes. I am on mobile currently.

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

I believe if you carry a gun you should have to make that known to all around you. Thats my opinion.

You do realize that would completely defeat the purpose pf conceal carrying right? And if you do that and somebody does intend to do harm then they will know to shoot you first.

This is a HUGE problem IMO. If someone doesn't trust you to do something it shouldn't be OK to do it because some other person does truck you. **** NO

So if I don't trust somebody to drive a car it shouldn't be pkay to do it? Cars kill more people every year than guns so if I don't trust somebody to drive, even if they have never broken any laws or even gotten a speeding ticket, than by this train of thought they should have their license suspended? Further more this line of thought(if it were to actually be made law and enforced) impedes the constitutional right to own and carry a gun. The fact they do not trust me dpes not matter. I have a permission from the land owner and thus my 2nd Amendment right to have that gun for my protection. Your opinion of me does not matter at that point. I didn't tell anyone unless they were working at the stand woth me. There were people there who I knew were carrying. Whether or not I trusted them did not matter to me. I just knew that the chances of them doing something were basically 0.

We will agree to disagree.

Okay. Have a good day.

EDIT: I would like to specify that I am refering to homicide specifically when I say more people are killed by cars than guns. Even though if you cpmbine homicide and suicide it still doesn't hit as many people are killed in car accidents.

I dont trust everyone there with a gun to own and operate it safely.

May I ask why? In most states in order to get a conceal carry permit you must have proof that you have gone through safety classes first. I think that if somebody goes through the time of actually getting a permit they have earned at least a little bit of trust to operate the weapon. Not trusting them to do so is irrational. I have spent my life around guns and people that own and use them regularly. And by use I mean are at the range, or if they own enough land shooting there. Now if somebody doesn't have a permit than I would be suspect as to why to they are carrying.

Ive gone over my stance on guns and I don;t really feel the need to do so again. lol

Not asking you to. Just curious about a few things.

this is worse, IMO.

Why? If you don't know they have a gun than they have done their job in owning a gun and having a conceal carry permit. If they tell you that is one thing, that means they trust you enough to know that they have a gun on them and the permit to carry it. And most people will straight up tell you if you ask.

Absolutely not. I have handled and shot pretty much every sort of gun there is. I don't trust people.

Well that is you. I personally feel safer when I know there are people who know how to use guns, have them on their person, and would only use it for good. It just makes me feel safe. I mean I always have knife on my person. It is just extremely practical to have it on me and I never know when I need to cut something. I use almost every day. But if I needed to use it for self defense I would.

It's not as much about trust as it is knowing that if something goes down if there are 10 people that have gun, at least one of them will use to make sure all those that don't are safe. Chances are all of them will.

When my church ran a fireworks stand and I was there I always had a Remington 870 sitting under the counter(It was private property so no permit needed). Just in case somebody tried to get in the stand and rob it. If they tried I would put a slug through their chest. Nobody from my church cared that I was 16. They just knew that if something went down I would have the capability to protect myself and everyone else there. Did all of them trust me? I don't know. But nobody said anything. I was authorized to have the shotgun with me. So whether or not they trusted me didn't matter. They just knew that others trusted me enough to have it. So their own personal feelings didn't matter.

Anyway. Not trying to say one of us is right and one of us is wrong. This is all opinions. Just explaining some of my experiences. Not looking to get in to a debate or anything. Just asking some questions. And if you don't feel like answering any questions and just say let us agree to disagree that's fine. No obligation to answer.

Yeah I feel safe. I know that if somebody walks in with the intent to harm they won't get very far. Just think about how many shootings of religious buildings could have been stopped if somebody with a conceal carry 9mm had been there to open fire on the shooter.

Why? They have them for the protection of themselves and those around them. Guns don't just go off randomly. And 99.999999% of gun owners and responsible and them for their own safety if they ever use them at all(Other than at the range having fun). Do you fear guns? Honest question.

EDIT: Also you probably wouldn't even know that the people had them. That is the point of conceal carry.

Not terrible. The CPU is still viable. Idk about the GPU. It is extremely old. But an upgrade would be cheap. I also recommend upgrading the PC to Windows 10. The storage is fine. The RAM is a good capacity and can upgraded if needed. How much are they asking is the real question. Or did you already purchase it? It is unclear from what you posted.

I think it mainly depends on aspect ratio and size. I would personally only get a curved monitor if it was ultra-wide and above 32 inches.

Well basically any DDR4 desktop RAM will work. Since you want white specifically you can use the filters to find white RAM.

Exactly. Currently the USMC mainly uses the M16A2 and the M16A4 both of which have the Safe, Semi, Burst. Currently they use the A4 as the primary and the one they train with in Basic Training and it is currently phasing out the A2. And the A3 was primarily skipped over my the Marines from what I know, primarily because of it not really being made for semi or burst.

I will be honest I do prefer the original over Halo 2 also. I do still like Halo 2's soundtrack but I think the chanting and heavy drums being at the front fit the setting better of mystery and discovery of the Halo rings better.

True. I have a hard enough time quickly firing an AR-15 and keeping steady. Granted I am not that well trained, however I am better trained with a gun than the average person.

I think burst fire rifles are a better option. But to be clear I have never shot either.

Also every US Marine I have spoken to say that they were only really taught to use full auto for suppressing fire in most cases, since it's hard to shoot accurately unless the gun is mounted. Even burst fire is rare from what I have heard.

Religious places, for the most part, don't have guns.

It's this very reason that my Pastor prefers anyone who has a conceal carry permit to carry in church. Even he does. Most of the men do. One or two of the women. Basically if anyone tries to shoot up my church they will be met with a barrage of various calibers from about 10 different people at least.

You can get a great GPU for that price range... Assuming shipping prices are fine or you have a store near you with decent pricing.

I would try for something like a gtx 1660. I don't know exact pricing for where you are but it should be within budget for your country and potential shipping prices.

Well my current number is 1436.

But I prefer to look at my Karma in % compared to my comments. So currently I have roughly a 51% Karma ratio. Meaning that roughly 51% of my comments have been upvoted. Of course this isn't exact since I have had some comments get -10 points and others get like +22.

Now you have more Karma than you do comments. Keep it up.

Also welcome back. Don't know if you left I just haven't seen you in a while.
