Yeah that's nonsense about Nvidia being a must have. You can set up a perfectly good streaming rig on a 570.

I do stand corrected about the VRAM though. I didn't realise they were 8gb.

I'm a little confused here. Which CPU are you referring to? my 1920x? my 16 core Haswelll?

For the most part my hobby used to be running multiple OSes at once. For that you need cores. Each VM...

I gather you mean the 2070? it has more VRAM. Doesn't matter how fast a card is if it runs out of VRAM you have had it. Performance absolutely tanks.

I wouldn't buy a 6gb GPU now. Not with the new consoles having far more. In a year or so it will end up like 1060 3gb, pretty much useless. And £400? LOL.

I'd get a 5700 or wait.

It wasn't the tightness of the threads for me. It was the block's holes. The screws have a non threaded part and it literally had to be shoved into the holes.

You have two options. 1, get a small...

That's not right at all. I might know why too.

OK first up let me just say that my 3950x idles in the 30s to low 40s tops on a dual 120 AIO. It's not even an expensive AIO. It's Corsair's...

Hmm it's a big block (should fit TR4 too) so I can't see it being off centre with the CPU and even if it were it should be fine. Dumb question but you did remove the protective vinyl off it right?

I don't think AMD are trying to maintain high pricing. The fact is the 3700x isn't expensive. If anything these will just push the prices down on the lower tiered CPUs.

Any one with a brain large...

To be fair to AMD it's a choice. It's better than the "choice" Intel gave people on Z170 (IE none) and you had to hack your board (and there were about two that worked).

It's better than nothing....

Maybe they are beginning to realise why Sega pulled out of the hardware market and just released games. Mostly because that is where the money lies.

It really is daft to shoot yourself in the foot.
