Forum Topic "Smash Burger is better than 5 Guys. Change my mind."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

I think In-N-Out and Whataburger earned their mythical status because of places like McDonalds and Burger King, Who have, In comparison, Crappy burgers.

Having tried both the first day(Seriously, The first DAY) I got to Texas I can see why they have earned a mythical status. Especially since they aren't nearly as widespread as other franchises.

My opinion is that if I want a classic burger I will go to In-N-Out. If I want something like a Chicken Strip burger I will go to Whataburger. If I want great fries I go to Five Guys(Low key the cajun fries at Five Guys are fantastic)

Well I don't eat Pizza often personally. But I do like a 4 cheese pizza with Bacon, Black olives, And ham with a garlic coated crust, And garlic butter dipping sauce. Usually from Dominos or Papa John's. Not a fan of Pizza Hut, Except for their cheese stuffed crust.

Also I forgot to mention why all the lists are Intel based. Programs like autoCAD aren't really optimized for AMD CPUs. And even with a more powerful GPU, An AMD based build just can't compete with Intel for tasks like this. It could also be some Intel exclusive technology, But I don't know much about the specific reason. And I don't know about autoCAD specifically, But I know other programs like Solidworks do this.(If anyone has information regarding this relating to autoCAD specifically I would love to take a look at it)

Forum Topic "Workstation PC"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Okay woah that motherboard is way more then you need. Second if they are doing autoCAD then a GPU is basically needed. I do advise going up to the $700-$800 range if possible due to simply how much more you get for your money. Also does the price ned to include an OS and things like the mouse and keyboard? I will be basing these lists off the assumption they don't, But if they do I can make new lists.

This comes in just a few dollars over the $600 mark. Has just as good of a CPU as the one on your list, But on a better platform that will have longer support. The quadro p600 is a great lowend card that will outperform most gaming cards in tasks like autoCAD, Due to the fact that it was actually made for it. But don't expect this to be great at gaming.

Nullarc77 3 Builds 0 points 7 months ago

It really depends on the game as to which is faster. But overall the 1060 is better. Also it uses a lot less power(Even the second video you listed said the 1060 was better) And just a side note, The 580 is only $250 after a $40 MIR. So yes it may be $20 cheaper, But you still need to pay a bit more upfront, And wait a while and hope you don't get screwed.

Yes 16gb is better, But not needed. If you are smart and close down your background processes you won't run into many issues with 8gb. Also Ryzen does like it's faster ram.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnuNs_Nu46Q

And no vram is not the same across architectures. nVidia cards have a better and more efficient way of doing things when it comes to storing textures and other things in vram. The actual difference is hard to know, But both cards have plenty of vram for 1440, And even 4k.

(Another side not. That 240gb ssd would fill up really fast)

Forum Topic "I'm new, please look over my build."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

You don't need 16gb of ram. The GPU on the 1060 6gb is actually better in most cases. And as somebody informed me a while ago, You can't compare vram unless across the same architecture. And overall nVidia has better compression technology.

But their hardware is total garbage the price and the overheating problems. Plus in their IMAC Pro the power supply they use is not nearly enough. Not to mention the fact that the customer service is terrible with the IMAC pro. If you want the OS build a hackintosh.

Forum Topic "Looking for League (LoL) Team"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I hate when JGs take the kills and leave their lanes hopeless.

Meh it depends. At the same time a jungler that has a few kills can better execute ganks and help their laners more, In late game. For me it depends on what the laner is currently sitting at as far as KDA. If they are say 3/0 then I may take the kill if I need it. But as far as first ganks I try to let the laner get it. But if a laner is down by 1 or 2 kills I will let them have it.

Being in Bronze currently though there is a lot of toxicity and negativity and thick headed people that won't listen to reason and assume the games over when the other teams up 5 kills.

Yeah. Totally agree. It is annoying.

Also focusing the wrong champs is the biggest mistake I see in this ELO. Everyone targets the champ that engages which is typically a tank and then wastes their abilities while the ADC/Assassins on the other team take everyone out. Just super frustrating to deal with.

I hate this. That is why Poppy is my jungle main. Her ability to knock a tank completely out of the fight so you can focus on the weaker ones is great in bronze, When people don't realize that the tank is doing no damage and just focus him anyway, It typically loses games.

I mainly play JG when I am solo, But prefer ADC for the most part.

A few things. The 8600k is very close to the performance of a 8700k. And with the money you save you can throw it at a better GPU which would provide a higher framerate then your current combo. You can get an SSD that is just as good for a bit cheaper, Or a higher capacity for the same price. Also a gold rated PSU would be within the budget. After parting our your list there is only a difference of less then $50. And with this you get much better performance.

Everything you just said is not accurate.

CB is an artificial workload. It can't be used to calculate real world performance. And of course in a test like CB that barely uses any ram the performance difference between 2400 and 3000mhz ram will be small. But in a real world application when stuff is being swapped in and out of ram(Like video editing or gaming) it makes a big difference.

When it comes to power supplies if it is not at least bronze rated it is generally not that good. The price difference between that and an 80+ bronze is like $5. Also that is not nearly enough wattage for a system like thia especially with future upgrades.

A 10% performance increase is huge even if this is an artificial test.

CB is a great artificial test, But not a great example of real world performance. Especially for things like video editing.

They never have included a cooler with the 1700x, EVER.

You can get a 1050 for $10 cheaper then the 550 you had in the previous comment. And only $5 more then the one you list now.

How do you know the PSU is garbage? No bad reviews! Because it's non-modular?

I know that PSU is garbage because it is not even bronze rated.

You don't need to overclock. There's no point. The performance boost is relatively small.

Overclocking provides a good performance increase. And again Ryzen works better with faster ram.

So a few things. First of all reuse whatever you can to save money. The case and storage are probably the 2 easiest things to reuse. Also what kind of power supply does your current system have(Brand and model)? Because depending on if it is a good PSU or not will determine if you actually need a new one.

If you can reuse the case, storage, and PSU then this is what i recommend getting.

Considering that video editing is mainly CPU focused and that is a locked quad core then a lot of things are wrong with it for this use case. The i5 would more than likely bottleneck a 1070 in video editing.

Or they could get something that has a CPU capable of video editing.

Yes there is a market for things like this. Video Display Adapters are very useful when they are cheap. But the MSRP of the 710 was $30 whereas the 720 was $50. Considering neither can game other then esports titles and they are mainly to expand the amount of displays a system can use, Or provide support for higher resolution monitors to older systems, The fact that the 720 exists is silly. It does nothing really better then the 710 but costs more. That is why you don't see them used often. Very few 720s were actually sold compared the 710 and 730. I can't even find benchmarks comparing the 710 to the 720. There was no market for the 720 simply because the 710 and 730 exists. The 730 was only a few dollars more then the 720 and offered a considerable performance increase and the 710 was cheaper and did the same thing.

If you come from a demographic that would never buy a GPU in the $40-50 range, the idea that there's multiple options in that price range seems silly.

There are multiple options in any price range. But the problem is that the 720 costs more and does almost nothing better.

Like I said. You can download drivers without the software. But the software will just notify you when there is a new driver update. And which features do you not want? Because you don't need to use any of them.
