It'll probably be a while before I get a new tower. When I do I won't be ruling them out automatically.

RYZEN 2xxx series - they seem to be good! a bit of an improvement over the 1st series. but they dont really seem to overclock much unless you get the lower specced ones. but the 2700X seems to work better left as is than overclocking it . but it is good!
need to get myself one of these and have a play! hehe

any one thinking of getting one of these new cpu's?

anandtech did a review on them last week and patched up the current intel cpus ie 8700k spectre and meltdown flaws and found that the Ryzen 2700X was faster for the vast majority of things including games ! sounds good to me! :)
long live the P U T E Y ! :)

as it turns out anandtech got their review of the Ryzen 2X series cpus a little bit wrong . intel is still a little bit faster but only marginally these days . even at at a lowly 1920x1080 res

as of late intel cpus are going up and up in price to rediculous levels cos of a shortage of them cos they cant seem to make 10nm cpus successfully . they have been struggling with this for the last 3 years, meanwhile AMD have leap frogged them ! Amazing really! :)

if you want to buy anything good that is not going to cost u you an arm or a leg or have to sell a kidney or 2 then i would steer clear of intel unless you are made of money . i guess you could buy the cheaper versions. even they have gone up a lot in price. :(

new Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 vidieo cards are out now too and you will need to sell all your families kidneys to secure on of these babies! the performance seems good at higher resolutions and they go on about this real time ray tracing and a new super sampling technology but for all us avearge Joes its not really do able eg performance is insanely expensive ! its just not worth it atm . :) no games currently use any of the new features yet anyways.

more bad news ram prices are stupidly expensive as well atm. arghhhhhhhhhhhhh pc gaming is tough at the moment :(

best value system now is probly -

AMD 2600/2600X $235/ $310 intel 8400 $300 or if want to overclock - intel 8600K $389
am4 mb B450/ X470 $165-300 intel mb H370/Z370 $180-350
ddr 4 ram 16GB $300 ,, ,,
vid card gtx 1080 $750 ,, ,,


with intel you will need to buy a seperate cooler ie hsf {amd comes with one in the box}

make sure you buy a good power supply of 650 watts miniumum approx $150

cheers BIG ears
long live the P U T E Y ! :)
