    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    Final update. Got my 1060, got my i5 660k at 4.2ghz, it's a breeze, runs BF1 @1080 everything at ULTRA settings, TAA, you name it, 90+ fps constantly, it's fucking amazing, i've never been happier with a purchase. No more fiddling around with weird settings, IT WORKS, out of the box, the...

    1500$ budget i5 6600k AMD RX 480 Please advise

    The common theory is, Jay overe here got THE best available chip XFX had, hands down, it achieved one hell of an overclock, performs beastly, i don't know it's a freaking lottery winner. There's actually a thread here at TPU for the XFX 480GTR, while not AS impressive as this one Jay got, it's...

    Oh! Sorry about that, thing is as i had to assemble 2 computers i gave them directly to the guy that imports the parts and he put them together, so that's why!!

    I've been recommending that same XFX to pretty much everyone in these forums, thing is, it's virtually impossible to get one here in Argentina sadly. :/

    No, it's the model name, Asus named it like that. It has dual fans.

    Hey even i upgraded! xD! Btw, coming from an fX8350, my new i5 performs just as well but does way better in games, Battlefield 4 runs fucking awesome right now. I'm just waiting on my new GPU. And that's what i wanted to talk about, maybe you have better luck than me, THE best RX480 right now...

    So! Status update, i'm happily running mi i5 now, i should update my System Specs, i'll do it after this post. I'm just waiting for my new GPU to arrive, and here are my choices, i can pick whichever one i want once they come, i do have some sort of priority with the importer. So yeah, what do...

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    Sadly i need this build to happen NOW and i can't wait in order to save more for the 6700, (specially now that i have to add a 212 Hyper to the build and over here it's 120 usDollars) it may not seem much but if you multiply times 4, you get the approximate over here. (you may think that i...

    It all ended up having to do with the prices and stock my supplier had. So yeah, and it's not such a simple thing when there's so much money involved man.

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    i've been using ASUS GPU's for a while now, my current one 7870 OC it's been a solid performer with great cooling solution, and so far i've seen no complains on the 1060 or 1070 on Newegg or places like that, so i'll just follow my instinct here hahah. I'll see if i can work around some other...

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    Alright guys, here's the final list, i talked to my supplier and this is what i'll end up getting, both machines will look like this: SATELLITE L590 WESTERN DIGITAL Blue 1TB SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Radeon EAH6450 SILENT DDR3 1GB HDMI (trust me she doesn't need any more than that) SENTEY...

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    After much considering, and watching the 6700 Non K scoring the same on every game as a 4.6 oc'ed 6600k i think i'll go for that one. The TDP is lower, the core temperature is lower about 10° which is awesome for me, i don't know, it's not like i use my pc only for gaming i am a graphic...

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    Thing is i really don't plan on overclocking that much, as i said before, temperatures here do reach 50°ish Celcius, so adding more heat to the Processor is kind of overkill. I mean i would happily run my current cooler on the 6600k on stock, you really think i should overclock the 6600? I mean...

    I do have my current cooler check my system specs, that is compatible with the 6600k

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    Ok! Just got the list from my supplier, these are the available Processors and Motherboards. The price it's in usDollars so you guys get the picture. Yeah it's overpriced i know, but what you gonna do. Core i5-6600K Quad Core 6MB 3.9GHz USD 322 Core i7-6700 Quad Core 8MB 3.4GHz USD 396...

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    I'll get them probably from a local supplier, that way i save shipping taxes. The downside is, that contrains my options even further. But it is what it is, luckily none of these parts are particularly hard to find, so i should be ok. Once he gives me the list with all the motherboards specs and...

    Upgrading my RIG. First time going into INTEL. Need help.

    This case may seem generic, but it's just a non popular brand, the truth being, it's a well built case and the fan on the side it's a freaking beast and is very efficient at keeping the temps in check. I live in Santa Fe, a region in Argentina that reaches EASILY 56°C (yup that was last year...
