    well yeah. that's why i keep my december 2014 build for a while longer. i'm using the evga 1080ti ftw 3 hybrid, an overclocked 5820k with a 240mm aio, 32 gb of dom plats ofc in quad channel, the asus x99 deluxe so i'm having a full x4 pci-e gen 3 m.2 slot for my 1 tb 970 pro nvme drive, lots of sata for 2x 1tb 860 evos, my old sandisk 120 gb ssd and my 3 hdds and it has plenty of usb 3 ports. there wasn't really that much interesting stuff worth to upgrade for. only swapped the 970 i build the rig with for a 1080ti and upgraded the storage. guess i'll keep this rig until ddr5 is around. then i literally kept this plattform from the launch of ddr4 to the launch of ddr5.

    Considering my current build is using an FX-8350 Black Edition and 16GB of DDR3 1866 MHz, I'd say it's time for an upgrade. GPU's a 1070 so that's at least serviceable, but apparently it's current going rate is near enough for a 2070 Super.

    Minecraft Dungeons is just like babies first dungeon crawler. Like it is the ok-est game you can possibly made, nothing is really terrible, nothing is really great. It took nothing out of creativity that made Minecraft great. And it just feels shallow and forgettable. So I wouldn't recommend it, like pick any of good dungeon crawlers and you got better or much better game. So I am kind of meh, it is like, if it must be dungeon crawler and it absolutely must have Minecraft characters, then it is fine. Otherwise just skip. But recommending it based on Minecraft, it kind of only shares theme with it, but otherwise not much and there are better games to try.

    kubuntu is beautiful and neat (Kde), all your programs get installed in thematic folders. Office programs install in a folder called office, Browsers in the internet folder, etc. The organization took away the distraction when you searching for that program in your start menu. And with steam you can have some gaming there using proton api driver based on vulkan. When I installed kubuntu, was thinking as a alternative recovery system for my windows 7 OS back in 2016, but when I started to use it I never boot my windows 7 since 2016. Even searching in the discovery app store you can find free programs. And even installing snap, you can search more updated versions of apps or other apps labeled as nonfree like VLC app. If your MS office is a 32bits version you can install it using the app called wine. Wine is just for Windows exe apps in 32 bits, work for games as well.

    4790K @ 4.6Ghz (can go higher, but at 4.6Ghz with the Noctua NH-D15 and curved fan setup it is dead silent even at full load). 16Gb DDR 2400Mhz C11 (I remember this impacted frametimes in games for me a lot when I upgraded from 1600Mhz with bad timing, basically helped eliminate the microstuttering in games at the time too, as well as increasing the minimum FPS by almost 20 frames on average). Upgraded to an RTX 2070 Super recently and it's running everything super smoothly for me gaming wise. Wanted to upgrade to 10th gen Intel 10600KF or Ryzen 3600x, but I am going to hold off until next generation, or the one after, when DDR5 gets into the market and higher memory speeds of 4000Mhz+ become commonplace.

    I have a Dell Optiplex 9010 with the 3770 in it. Put the full 32 Gigs in it, 2 SSDs & a 4Tb Hard Drive & an R9 Nano in it. Decent little machine & runs solid. I did upgrade the PSU to a 750Watt 80+Gold though. At first I only had 8 gigs of RAM & when I upgraded it was a little picky getting it to boot. I ended up having to unplug everything & pull out the video card & RAM, than turn it on, let it beep than shut it down & reinstall the components. After it restarted twice was good to go.

    LOL the Choice in GPU used was not very well thought of the RTX 2060 will have trouble with that CPU let along an RTX 2060 super the 3770 can probably drive a GTX 1660/1660ti or an RX470/480/570/580/5500XT(product refresh isn't it great !) so don't expect good Ray Tracing on that cpu as it will be entering bottleneck city.

    I've never actually built a pc before, but I have been trying to figure out what components I will need for my first build for a couple of months. This case solved three of my biggest hurdles: the question of what cables to get and how long, cooling, and a console-ish sized case for use as a living room pc. This ABSOLUTELY makes building look way easier and I will be ordering this!!

    I noticed the insane CPU load while playing the 4K video and the little GPU utilization. While on my system I7 8700 and a RTX2070 my CPU usage stays below 20% But my GPU usage is 60%. Are RTX GPUs more effective at video encoding taking the load of the CPU?

    Yeah, those 5G protection USB sticks are funny, but yeah, as soon as you get bunch of crazies dead set on thinking 5G is connected to Corona and how bad it is, of course you are going to get shady people exploiting living s*** out of crazies. Like seriously, I already saw people asking ISP, if they will take responsibility for harm they are doing by transmitting 5 out of routers and stuff, because it is harmful. Of course person had no concept of difference between mobile 5G that is not yet in the country and 5G WiFi. Needless to say that person demanded all 5G to be turned off... And it wasn't just one person overall. Lets just say I was very happy that I didn't yet have to answer any 5G crazy people stuff. Because I would literally be like, please someone cut off reproductive organ off that person, so they can't contaminate the rest of the world. And like, you know it is not trolling, just by the way they are writing or talking about it. And you are just like, how many brain cells do those people got, like 10? 1? Does it go into negative? Like things with whole 5G crazies is just not stopping. And I wish Facebook would take few pages out of Tweeter book, because those crazies as far as I saw, do use Facebook to spread their crazy thing. And it is just crazy how thing is spreading.

    I would say If someone have around 300$ and want only new part , they should go ditch the gpu and go with athlon 3000g or ryzen 3200G, b450 with 4 ram slot, 16gb ddr4 3600mhz, 120gb ssd, aerocool cyclon case, 430w psu 80+. It would cost little over 300. at the time of writing it cost like 330$(going with 3200g) but it has better upgrade path like just throw in a gpu and you’re good to go. You’re stuck with 120gb ssd but at least it’s faster lol. If you want u can choose 240gb ssd(add like 10$) or throw in 1tb hdd in the future. This 300$ pc should get the job done if you’re looking for 720p or 1080p low setting gaming. The point is you can still play game and upgrade it easily when you got more money
