    Advice on a 2500$CAD (tax included) config

    I've take 5 minutes to watch around the internet and apparently there is a little bit of improvement M2 vs 2.5 but most people assume that it is barely worth the price difference in most cases and better and cheaper m2 are on the way with real difference between them and 2.5 version, good to know.

    Advice on a 2500$CAD (tax included) config

    Hey ikeke, like I said Im not against AMD or anything and Ryzen was something I was really thinking about but in the end I think I wanna try my first Intel build right now.

    Well for me it's just someone throwing a CTRL+C/V in a superior manner, not saying "hi" or anything, reading people on the internet can be hard sometimes but anyway, cya I guess.

    Advice on a 2500$CAD (tax included) config

    Indeed I have no intention to overclock it since I don't know how that work and I don't think I'd like to do it anyway, thanks ! Any suggestion about something else, my two main worries are PSU: lots of them and not quite sure what make one better than the other RAM: same as PSU, I understand...

    Advice on a 2500$CAD (tax included) config

    I dont' know what that mean...can't people have normal conversation in my thread for some reasons ? I'm able to read walls of text, like I did past few weeks, in order to make a choice and stuff, but at this point I was aiming for a more "personal" Q&A. Like I said it is more or less a "last...

    Advice on a 2500$CAD (tax included) config

    Ho thanks but I forgot about the fact that I will go Intel for this build, first time trying intel didn't really like AMD anymore...even if this new Ryzen seems tempting...I don't know.

    About 1080 and i7

    I might wanna try a watercooling for the cpu (never used one before really). I'm from Canada (Montreal), and yea I will only need mb/ram/cpu and cooler I think. My cpu is at 3.5Ghz and I have no idea about my ram, haven't touch it to be honest I have no idea how to overclock and it is not...

    About 1080 and i7

    Hi everyone, I'm asking this for pure information, Is it possible to build a 1080ti/i7/16gbRAM gaming pc for around 2000CAD (without taxes I guess) adding the fact that I wouldn't need an SSD/HDD (would keep the current one) ? And with the choice of intel going with some crazy i9 wouldn't it...

    Motherboard and CPU advice

    Well I had Skylake in mind after all the things I read and the fact that the price difference doesn't seems huge for what it add in therm of "future proofing" I would say, for the ram I can have 16gb ddr4 for the same price as 16gb ddr3 (maybe 20$ difference). On another hand if Im willing to...

    Motherboard and CPU advice

    THANKS BiggieShady its exactly what Im thinking, it seems like more and more we have games that are more center around cpu power than gpu, and indeed my friend have a i5, the only reason I want to go for i7 is for 3D later on. If you where in my shoes what would you do ? Wait for august like Ebo...

    Motherboard and CPU advice

    I would do more 3D in the future but more like a passtime activity, Im mainly gaming and right now I feel like my cpu is holding me down despite my gpu, I have a Geforce GTX 770 4gb and, for exemple, my friend have a lower gpu and a better cpu and he defenitly have more fps in any game we play...

    Motherboard and CPU advice

    The thing is, I really want to switch for Intel, if you are suggesting that I should wait I will, if there is a real difference in august 2016 I can do that but is it really worth it, that is the question, I dont really want my new setup being obselete in like 7 month hehe.
