    Samsung 980 PRO Clears Korean Regulators, Comes in Three Sizes

    Sounds about right. Windows should be taking about ~ 23GB. Throw in Office and Photoshop which is relatively small / medium sized programs for a few gigs each. 28GB doesn't leave any space for modern games at all. CoD MW alone is 191GB (extreme example, I admit). If you don't play any games I...

    Samsung 980 PRO Clears Korean Regulators, Comes in Three Sizes

    The average home user wouldn't make use of this drive. This drive is made for content creators, enthusiasts, etc anyway. 500GB should be the standard these days imho. 256GB goes quick after formatted, OS, a few big programmes and or a game. Full.

    Samsung 980 PRO Clears Korean Regulators, Comes in Three Sizes

    Why did they even bother making the 256GB variant. 500GB, 1TB and 2TB would be perfect. Guess that's reserved for the 980 EVO though

    GIGABYTE Intros B550 VISION D Motherboard for Creators

    Wish this was the "gamer" look. Love the minimalism and cleanness.

    Intel Core i9-10900K

    Looks like highest-end 2060 is equal to entry-level 2060s price ($369)

    Intel Core i9-10900K

    Looking at current market trends via pcpartpicker. You would need to spend at least $110+ to upgrade an 2060 to 2070. With Intel not including an cooler that would make up the difference. I concede my previous point

    Intel Core i9-10900K

    Yes true it's slightly more expensive compared to the 3700x but it's also considerably faster. Downside is no included cooler which Intel is losing out on. You probably can't find a huge GPU upgrade for only $80+ odd dollars though. Better GPU model cooler? That's about it all things being equal

    Intel Core i9-10900K

    You're moving the goalposts now. Obviously if said user wanted to seriously stream games every session you would pick an appropriate chip. In this scenario we would still have to compare the i7-10700k (value 9900ks) as 8 cores are perfectly able to stream and have stupid amounts of background tasks.

    Intel Core i9-10900K

    I already said that's true but the point isn't totally correct anymore once you factor in the new i5-10600k with cache ratio and ram overclocking. It even beats the 10900k in most cases. You'll get best value and top-performance for gaming with that chip and RTX GPU for any said budget.

    Intel Core i9-10900K

    No. Just no. I know you're saying budget wise but balls to the wall top-end setup is intel CPU and NV RTX 2080 Ti. Nothing will beat it in gaming.

    Intel 10th Generation Comet Lake Desktop Processors and 400-Series Chipsets Announced, Here's what's New

    Eh, not a bad refresh really. Rocket Lake is the big boi coming though. Likely this year even. Kaby lake all over again?

    Intel 10th Generation Core Desktop Series Presentation Leaked

    Per-core HT settings is interesting. Wonder how a mix of 5/5 on/off cores would fare for gaming and productivity workloads. Best of both worlds? Maybe 2/8 since most games use the first two cores as the main threads. Kinda wanna play around with it
