    • God when I see these prices you got in the US I am kind of getting goosebumps as similar configs in the EU are twice as much. Doesn't seem fair really. Even for GPUs the prices are 150-200% more. Weird.

    • They're definitely not "back". People just decided that 10700ks at $260-280 and 10850ks at ~$350 are destroying the demand for the now uncompetitive AMD 5600x and 5800x. Try finding a 5900x for sale. It's impossible since it's still technically the fastest gaming CPU. AMD hasn't fixed their supply, just no one wants the 5600x and 5800x at their price points. And really, with those prices recommending a "budget build" with a $300 5600x is pretty silly compared to a $280 10700k.

  • Im looking to upgrade my current pc and I was looking to do the mid range. I have a radeon rx 570, would that be compatible with the mobo and processor? Or would I have to go with somone of a higher tier? My setup is so old (except for the gpu) that i'm still on ddr3 ram haha... .-.

  • I picked up the parts for this build but the only reasonably priced GPU I could manage to get my hands in was the ASUS TUF Gaming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 OC Edition Graphics Card with PCIe 3.0, 4GB GDDR6 Memory, HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D, 1x 6-pin Power Connector. Does this seem compatible with this build until I can get my hands on a 3080?

Looking to replace my ageing gaming rig,.. thinking of going for a pre-build with £2000 GBP budget , would love that to include an RTX3080 but hey, that's never gonna happen anytime soon, Would really appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction for a pre-build within that price range. Many thanks.

  • actually, the way things are, its pretty tempting to buy a brand new prebuilt and customize it to have the i3 10100f, 8gb ram, minimal storage, minimal psu, and then a 5700xt. it comes to 1100ish on several sites. yank the 5700xt and sell the pc with no gpu for 4-500 bucks and boom, barely over msrp for your graphics card. kinda a hassle but if things dont get better soon i just might do it

    EclipseGST94EclipseGST94پیش ماه
  • Yep use a lower potato GPU until you can get something decent, that's not overpriced by 70-200%. Look mainly around December 2023.

  • I got tired of waiting so broke down and bought a pre-built. I think the big guys are using the virus as an excuse to kill off individual PC builders.

    XyquestXyquestپیش ماه
  • Honestly? With these prices you kinda want to punch AMD even more for limiting the sale of their 4000 series APUs to just OEMs. Cause first off, unless you're very lucky and probably in mainland US, you're not getting any used graphics card for reasonable money. New is out of the question for most, cause you would be absolutely idiotic to buy them with 50%+ (at least) markup. Pre-builds are kinda possible, but again depending on the market your options there are going to be very limited. The AMD 4000 series APUs, especially the R5 and R7 ones would do solid. Sure it's nothing amazing, but it gives you a very powerful CPU with meh but workable iGPU and an option to just wait it out and see how the GPU market looks in 2022. Without having to waste money on some nonse such as the low end GPUs. At least you can grey market them thanks to the chinese market. I guess we'll see how the Xe chips perform in the new Rocket Lake Intel chips performs and if those will be a good "2 step build" solution.

    Ryzen DivisionRyzen Divisionپیش ماه
  • I would like to add one more option to the processor list - the 3900 or 3950x - More cores than the 3600 (12 cores!) gives you massive performance for non gaming at a bargain. Rendering, editing, CAD, anything that can use the extra cores. It is an excellent option in the AM4 socket. I bought mine when you couldn't get the newest Ryzen chips, and was blown away at how good it is at so many tasks other than gaming... It games just fine with an RTX 2070 I re-used. As comparison, I also have a 3600x with an AMD 5700 - It does fine, but the 3900 is really much better at productivity. Gaming I don't see much difference between a 2070 super and a 5700. Both processors run hot - 40-60 when not under high demand. Just thought I would toss that out as an option - nothing wrong with AMD's flagship chip from just last year... They have really thrown down and are killing it!

    Mike GoyetteMike Goyetteپیش ماه
  • One problem you might run into, as my friend did, is buying a card on Ebay that is actually a used card that already has many hours on the clock. Bit coin miners keep close tabs on their hardware and if a graphics card starts to slow down with age they dump it. Let's face it, Ebay is full of unscrupulous people selling fakes and junk, so buyer beware. There is however some good news as PC makers were locked in to the number of cards they could receive and thus have PCs with decent graphics ready to sell. I'm thinking by July the market will look a lot better, and if everyone waits the sellers will have no choice but to lower prices.

  • First, I love the videos Paul - you always speak so concisely and respectfully - as a long-time teacher a really appreciate that. However, I feel smothered with info and need a bit of guidance. I'm raising my 6 year old nephew and he and I have become somewhat of a badd-azz team in COD and COD Mobile. I want to build a comp that he and I could use to stream games - mostly COD-M and Fortnite. I'm good to spend 1K (without monitor) on something with a little bit of an upgrade path. But after watching your videos I'm like, um... do I get this one, r that one or this bit then that bit, or.... I just want someone to lay out a simple parts path with a bit of wiggle - not interested in rgb - just performance. Thanks again for the great videos!

  • Thank you Paul for continuing to post, I love everything pc and have actually been working with computers sense 1985! When John W. North High School, in Riverside California had the first ever summer education volunteer computer programing class in the united states, (Yes you had to volunteer to go to Summer School), I did, we programing before basic, was basic, (lines of binary like .. .. . ... (00_00_0_000)= equaled YES and -. .. (10_00)= NO. Oh yah it was based out of Morse code, Binary grew when the internet was a fax modem, phone call on a dial tele phoneline recorded on a 8 track or cassette MAG (for you new timers magnetic tape) tape. Me and a good friend would write lines and lines of code than fax ... -------- ....----... over the old house phone to each other carefully recording it on or cassette recorders to capture each others self written Adventure Program, all those dots and dashes and lines of what now days they call code made an adventure program were you had to type back Y(YES) or N(NO) to simply decide your choice. Hope you enjoyed my old school rant LOL, don't even let me started, on Pascal programming, or DOS 1.0 (all rights to IBM). LOL, 8 BIT games (8x8) my generation programmed them to paly chess or checkers. Keep up the Great Videos, Yes even OLD SCHOOL IS WATCHING, AND LOVING YOUR VIDS...

  • I’m doing this right now, it’s the only way to get parts at a reasonable price. On eBay the 5600x and 3060ti would cost the entire price of a prebuilt with those two parts. Unfortunately it’s luck of the draw on what specific parts you get and whether or not you get 2x8gb or 1x16gb ram for example. Crucial p5 is a better nvme, beats samsungs offering.

  • Considering the state of things for the unknowable future length of time, is there a possibility that one of these Monthly "Builds" videos would be a Monthly "Prebuilts" where you could show off builds that have the parts you would recommend but also crucially a GPU, not at in insane price, though I am aware there is a premium involved. You know for first time PC enthusiasts that want a good system at a decent price that is actually attainable right now. Could point out potential pitfalls, better or worse System Integrators and if/how much of a deal it is if you were to parallel a parted out monthly build alongside it like you normally would show.

  • I would suggest buying a used RTX 2080/RTX 2080ti on ebay if you can get it under $650USD, otherwise your only option would be to buy a entire pre-built gaming PC from HP, Dell,Alienware,Orgin,Digitalstorm.ect. In 2019 I paid $1399USD for my EVGA RTX 2080ti XC Gaming Hybrid (watercooled) & TBH there is no need for me to upgrade for another 4+ years.

  • "4.0 isn't necessary." Well, current GPU prices being what they are, the 4GB RTX 3050Ti may be the most a lot of people will be willing to pay for in the foreseeable future and if the 4GB RX5500 on 3.0x8 vs 4.0x8 is any indication, 4.0x16 may very well be required to make it viable.

  • In my country shops still have 200-300 people queue for Ryzen 9 5950X and they've received about 50 units, total, this year. Shops here have received hundreds of Ryzen 9 5900X units thise year, but there's still 200-300 queue. I've I'd had to buy CPU right now it would be Intel: Those are readily available and prices are low. In performance category the similarly priced options are: AMD 6-core 5600X and 3-4 month wait vs. Intel 8-core 10700K and immediate availability. Given the current situation I'd like to see videos about "How to prolong the life of your CPU/GPU"? I have R9 3900X + RTX 2080 ti combo right now, and if one of these starts to malfunction..I'm in trouble..

  • For AMD. CPUs the 5600x & 5800x seem to be available, the 5950x somewhat available and the 5900x not so much.

  • why not do a professional Audio PC build since graphics cards are not important for it?

  • any recommendation for 600W psu with 8+4 cpu pin for under $80? It's fine if it's non-modular as long as it's not ketchup-mustard cable. My Asrock B550 Steel Legend came with 8+4 pins, while it's fine running with 8 pins only, i want to properly power it up, and for future upgrades where i'll upgrade my placeholder-1650 to 1660S or hopefuly 3060.

  • So I'm not in the US but in Canada the stores that sell "in person only" get restock fairly often and since they can't be snipped by bots it's actually not that hard to be patient and get a reservation for one at msrp. I've done it for 4 people already. Online is imposible but there are ways.

  • I bit the bullet awhile back and paid the reseller price for an RTX 3080. I felt so dirty after doing it but at least the scalper had the fastest shipping of anything I’ve ever bought from ebay 😂
