Why didn't you either buy a better monitor or a CPU with more threads if you had money left over?

I mean, I can afford a 9900K/2080ti/(other expensive parts here) system and a top end monitor with my discretionary income. But I don't have all that much time to game anyway so I wanted to find a good balance on performance and value. More threads or a better monitor won't let me experience VR. I want experiences.

Why don't you ask our resident expert in sound financial purchases, Rushy?

He specifically told me no already, because he would be forced to buy one.

After having saved so much money buying a reasonably spec'd gaming PC, I want to throw some money away. Should I buy the Valve Index kit?

Pros:
- It is amazing.
- It would force Rushy to buy one.

Cons:
- $999 for a box that straps to your head with a couple fancy joy cons.

It seems that you actually can hear me over the whimpering coming from the cracker jack threads of your withering CPU.

I like the direction of this thread. Parsifal is now baiting Thork, instead of the other way around which is the normal order of things.

I can't hear you over the sound of all these threads I'm simultaneously running.

You mean your 8 Virgin Threads vs. my 6 Chad Threads?

Congrats.  Dell was, last I checked, a good brand.

That being said, it will die in 5 years.

A Dell is fine ... once you have uninstalled all of the crapware they put on them.

Indeed. I'll be putting a clean Windows 10 Pro install on the new SSD.

Thanks, Pete. I am canceling my order now and getting a Ryzen because of this.

Technically it wasn’t $1200 you liar!!!

Very true. I am still lying more because I saved another $5 on my newegg purchase so it was $5 less than I just said but still over $1200.

I'm gonna call bullshit on this.
I can't help that you don't know how to shop for a good deal...


That spec is not $1200 with Dell. Please link the product from Dell.
Not if you upgrade the RAM and SSD through Dell, no. I also had discounts, like I mentioned. The one I configured is the 2nd G5 option that starts at $749.99. I can't link with discounts, but I will waste a few seconds uploading screenshots so you can keep shitting up my thread with more nonsensical responses.

Price:


Spec:


I then bought this RAM from newegg (now out of stock):
https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232765?Item=N82E16820232765

And I bought this SSD from newegg:
https://www.newegg.com/sabrent-rocket-q-1tb/p/0D9-001Y-00024

For a grand total of $1226.32.


I'm up at over $1500 before you bought extra RAM and before sales tax on the spec you announced.

edit - inb4 thork is butthurt i didnt explicitly say i upgraded the ssd myself at the very beginning because i should be required to disclose all of the minutia of my purchase at the very beginning so he can nitpick as much as possible. then when he follows with something about tax, ill let him know how i negated most of that cost as well

If you're spending that much you may as well have just gone with an RTX 2080 Super and an i9-9900k.
It was $1200 for the PC with discounts and including the extra RAM I ordered since I didn't want to pay Dell markup. Your suggested config would be over $2K

I'm guessing this was an impulse buy?
Not even remotely. I've been comparing rigs from major vendors and pricing out building myself for a while. The kind folks on IRC can attest it was anything but impulse and days of me agonizing over finding the best deal possible.

I don't get it. 9600K is a weird choice right now.

Not if all I am planning to do is play games... I am not streaming, it isn't a digital audio workstation, or a rendering workstation. Just games. Even the 9900K is only around ~5% faster in things that actually matter for gaming compared to the 9600K, and the 9600K is still better than anything Ryzen has for gaming.

I feel like Junker is going to be rather short of threads whilst playing games in the future.

I struggle to see the sense in a 6/6 9600K when a Ryzen 3600 gives you 6/12 and Intel themselves will be giving you 6/12 on the i5 if you had only waited a little bit longer.

SMT doesn't help with gaming. The 9600K outperforms nearly all Ryzen 3 CPUs at stock speeds on 1,2, and 4 core performance (single core being something that actually matters), and surpasses even the Threadripper 3960X when overclocked (not that I can or will be overclocking). All that said, I still wanted to go AMD, but this was the best bang for my buck.

Find a new slant, Thork.

i5 9600K
RTX 2070 Super
32GB DDR4 2666
1TB PCIe NVMe M.2
27" 1440p 144 Hz monitor

Now I can almost play scam shitizen properly.

Buy a plane ticket. Cheaper and faster. You can get to 30k feet and see the curved horizon for yourself. Then come back to earth and get on with your life.

1) Don't bump an old thread to add nothing to it other than an off-topic post.

2) Even if earth were round you would not see curvature at 30k feet; I suggest you go do some homework and then get on with your life.

3) 2nd warning.

I played for a few hours today, for the first time in a couple of years. It is much more playable these days.

Also I murdered Parsifal.

And people who do are dumb.
Which is why I assumed that is what you meant  :-B

Because they also say "Bill Clinton was impeached" which would be wrong if they meant he was removed from office.
Given that no US President has ever been removed from office via impeachment, yes that would be dumb.

Sorry but I see enough people (Trump included) who are screaming the same thing: that impeachment somehow means he'll be removed.  They also say the election of 2016 will be overturned as though somehow Hillary Clinton will become president.  It's nonsense and aggrevating.
I mean, maybe the stars align and John Bolton gets called and adds some previously unheard information that gets Trump removed We can hope.
