That is not what you said in your original post. You did say

My friend who got an almost Identical build spec-wise got an i5-7500 locked and said he was bottle-necked a bit so I went with a step up, the i5-7600k @ 3.80 GHz. I overclock it to 4.4ghz

So if you were trying to say that your friend picked out your CPU then that was not clear at all.

Nobody was saying to change your parts(Although if you can return them and swap them out for coffee lake I would recommend doing it) We were just asking why you didn't choose coffee lake in the first place. It is okay to admit you were underinformed about parts.

That $24 would bring the price of the 8600k up to the price you paid for the 7600k. And the 8600k is a much better chip. Again do you not live in the US? Because of so then that explains the pricing.

Guy jumps through window out of second floor of building and hits the ground running.

Without all the extra weight added by the gun, the ammo, the BDUs, and all the other stuff it would be possible for him to walk it off if he even knew how to take a fall like a circus performer. But with all the things fornerly listed the chances of him breaking both his legs are high. Not to mention that his face and throat would be destroyed by the glass.

8600k and 1080ti. There is a small performance difference between tge 8600k and the 8700k when using tbe same GPU for gaming. The limitkng factor while gaming with the 2 CPUs is the GPU. So get the 1080ti. It will offer much better performance.

Well since there are no benchmarks for the game I can't say for certain, However this with the 1050ti is well past the minimum requirments for the game. You should be able to get 1080p 60fps no problem.

1080p 30-60fps would be no problem on this thing. It just cones down to if you prefer better graphics to a better framerate. But trust me when I say that once you start gaming at 60fps you never want to go back.

Nah. AR-15 stand fir assault rifle. It is called that because it can kill 15 people with a single 30 round ammo clip-magazime. Just like AK-47 stands Automatic Killer 47. Meaning it can kill 47 people with a single pull of the trigger...

You should get at least a 120gb ssd for the OS. It makes a huge difference in boot times and load times for small programs you have stored on it. The 2tb HDD will be great for larger games. Also that power supply is kinda old and less reliable then something like the Supernova G3s. Other then that it looks good.

My Thoughts; This is in violation of their first amendment rights. The players can be called "ungrateful" or "whiny", but they have a right to protest how they want. I'm all for honoring America's veterans, but this is a direct violation of rights.

If they were protesting outside of the NFL and the NFL fined them then it would be against their First Amendment rights. However since football is their job and they have a contract with the NFL, Then what they do on the field that violates that contract. If you worked for a carpenter and he told you that if you kept leaving your tools out and not storing them properly when you aren't using them on the job site then you would probably start putting away your tools. But if he visited your house and found all of your personal tools laying around your house and said that he would fine you if you did not put them away, Then that is way beyond his authority, Since his authority only exists when you are on the job site. Just like the NFL can only fine player that kneel during the national anthem while they are dressed in their gear and on the field ready to play a game. If you want to protest something then do it on your own time. Don't bring the company you work for into it, Because if they don't like it, They have the right to punish you.

EDIT: I would like to clarify that I am all for anyone's right to protest whether I agree with what they are protesting are not(As long as they stay peaceful), As long as it is on their own time.

EDIT 2:

Conservatives like to yell about how Gun Control and Nationalized Healthcare are aspects of Communism, but applaud for forced patriotism. Just a thought

It is not about patriotism. It is about honoring those who died and those who are ready to die and currently fighting for your right to protest. The only people I know of in this country that are forced to be "Patriotic" is people in the military. And if you don't want to honor those who died for your very right to protest, Then you should really reconsider living in the United States.

If you are using an AMD GPU then you need to go into Radeon settings. Under "Create custome resolution" Select create new profile. There you will be able to set the refresh rate of your monitor. Once you have the profile saved Windows should detect a 75hz option. I don't know about nVidia cards but it may be the same or similar.

It is low quality and not even 80+ rated. It looks to be almost the same as the one included with the case but 500w instead of 450w. And PSUs that are included with cases are famous for being low quality and a fire hazard. To quote Vegabond"Isis called and they want their IED back"

That and there is this thing is the United States called the 4th Amendment. If the government tried this then most of the legal and illegal gun owners alike would protect themselves. Without probable cause the government can't legally search your house and seize objects. And when you are a law abiding citizen there most likely won't be probable cause.

the M.2 NVME SSDs are a must for fast boots and very valuable read and write speeds.

There is no difference between NVME and SATA SSDs when it comes to boot times in Windows and Linux.

for 3D rendering the more the CUDA cores the BETTER!!

No. Having a Quadro which is much better optimized for that workload will yield better performance. If it was the more Cuda Cores the better then why aren't people using GPUs like the Titan Z which has almost 6000 Cuda Cores, Or just cheaper cards in SLI?(I know the titan Z is a dual GPU card)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Rendering/3D Modeling Powerhouse"

  • 18 months ago

Slightly over budget. The cost to performance going from an 8 to a 10 core cpu on the X299 platform right now is heavily in favor of the 8 core, Since the 10 core is almost double the price. NVME is not needed at all. There can be a difference if you are loading extremely large files, But having the larger capacity is would most likely benefit you more, Since you can store large projects that you are currently working on in the SSD, And when you are finisehd just transfer it to the HDD for long term storage. And in Windows and Linux there is literally no difference in boot time. For 3D rendering applications, Quadro's are much better optimized for 3d design workloads and when paired with a good CPU like the 7820X will provide great performance.
