Personally I wouldn't buy a 8 thread quadcore anymore for gaming, I would highly recommend a step up to an i5 for that extra power.
Also I recommend buying a CPU with iGPU in case you don't have a spare GPU when you got issues....
I mean, the 6700 in my spare parts rig handles 60Hz gaming just fine still

Would i build a new gaming system around that? Definitely not, but budget systems can still game on them just fine

Ok but I'd take the i5 so you won't have to upgrade that anytime soon in case you get a more powerful GPU...

This. A dumb (or internet disconnected) TV and the streaming device of your choice is a much better way to go versus a 'Smart' TV.

My issue was with Samsung TV's.
Latest one we had and got rid of, was a 60" curved TV. It would just switch channels on it's own. :mad:

Be right in the middle of watching a series or movie and it would shut the streaming service down and go to something else totally! I've never seen any smart TV do that before!

So, we got rid of it and went back to our old Walmart Onn 50" that we've had for almost 3 years. It's be flawless for us.

Heck, Walmart has the 40" version right now on sale for $98!!! Probably going to pick one of them up for the travel trailer bedroom.

I know right! I am so mad sorry for my rant but I was gaming 3 times now and this has happened in the midst of a game and that just messes the computer up no question at all.
My game doesn't save at all I am looking at a blue screen of death and just absolutely on my last nerve about to smash tv like HULK!
I just want a 4K 65" that won't crash my computer because it rebooted in the middle of work.

As someone else said, don't connect the TV to a network.

I had an RCA my dad purchased back in 1982 that lasted till 2007 when they moved and sold it for like $10. Fricking TVs never needed updates. They worked. And I could easily cook my Mac + cheese when I would sit and watch Robotech. Never shut off on me during game play of Mario Bros 3 either.

Maybe it's time to upgrade to an RCA Vacuum tube TV?

I have the 850, Excellent PSU. I do kinda not like the flat cables for certain areas tho, super "me thing" no knocking it I have been using Seasonics for over a decade.
I may end up getting a reference 7900XTX and figured with my current PSU it might be pushing it. My main rig pulls 150w in R23, and the Seasonic GX-650 should easily allow the maximum 375w for the GPU (2x 8-pin + PCIe slot). But if the card is not well behaved and will spike well above its TBP limit, the system could go over 600w when fully loaded. Oh, and the 850w Prime was 33% more expensive than the one I got :wtf:

Besides, I like the sound of "Titanium" :D

I may end up getting a reference 7900XTX and figured with my current PSU it might be pushing it. My main rig pulls 150w in R23, and the Seasonic GX-650 should easily allow the maximum 375w for the GPU (2x 8-pin + PCIe slot). But if the card is not well behaved and will spike well above its TBP limit, the system could go over 600w when fully loaded. Oh, and the 850w Prime was 33% more expensive than the one I got :wtf:

Besides, I like the sound of "Titanium" :D

Hah yeah I actually came “down” from a Seasonic X-1050 so I mean I’m still “better more than less“ but trying to be more “reasonable“ My wall monitor says I’m pulling like 460W total
Also that song is in my regular playlist ❤️

When I get my new TV (whatever it may be), it's not even getting hooked up to a network.
I couldn't not be hooked up because I run 95% of the Streaming services on it. I have to use Wifi because of my layout I just wish it would hook to my Mesh at 5ghz consistently rather than 2.4 but this apartment is like a Faraday Cage for some reason that said zero issues streaming 4K content

Oh totally slipped my mind yesterday, maybe because i spent 1.5h carefully fitting the 12VHPWR and praying everything fits the case (there's like a 5mm gap to the Kraken waterblock and the Lian Li riser is all squished against the mobo and backplate because it's a bit too long for the GPU being so close or well, fat ) :laugh:

I think i had a Gainward something in 2002, it was a FX5900 model with a blue LED fan.

Very impressed even though this is actually a Palit and a low tier PCB, but still very quiet and very good temps (core below 65°C on stock fan curve and settings, 58-60°C with an undervolt to 0.95v and same 2700mhz core as stock, around 80W drop in power draw). 3Ghz boost is no problem at 1.05v (in 3Dmark) and memory OC seems to be average +1400 to 1500, still need do to some testing. Don't care that it's not the GS model with 600W and 4 cables :D

My issue was with Samsung TV's.
Latest one we had and got rid of, was a 60" curved TV. It would just switch channels on it's own. :mad:

Be right in the middle of watching a series or movie and it would shut the streaming service down and go to something else totally! I've never seen any smart TV do that before!

So, we got rid of it and went back to our old Walmart Onn 50" that we've had for almost 3 years. It's be flawless for us.

Heck, Walmart has the 40" version right now on sale for $98!!! Probably going to pick one of them up for the travel trailer bedroom.
Someone on your local network was controlling it. If you leave it on default, every android device on your wifi can control streaming devices

The amount of times i've seen family members trolling the less tech literate older family for a laugh only to see them absolutely melt down and throw out the hardware or disconnect it from the internet entirely

With all due respect, Palit/Gainward always made high quality products, and there's nothing "low tier" about it. Enjoy.
