PC specialist have a great system to let you know when you are ordering a power supply higher than you need, I think it calculates a 20% buffer for your needs. But can you benefit from a bigger buffer?
I vaguely remember coming across a source online saying that they like to have a power source...
oops sorry @Nursemorph I was using my mobile to reply, I need to open my eye more.
Regarding the CPU, how much of a difference would the cache make for single core processes. The 5600X and 5800X are almost half that of the 5900X. Is it more important for higher core counts?
Is the cooler in...
Hey Scott. Thanks for responding.
Yeah that's not a bad idea. The 5900 might be over kill if there are no other features that would boost performance for my uses. It difficult to get specific info for animating rather than rendering (which benefits from more cores)
The only reason I have the...
I have a 4K 60Hz Monitor and my budget is approximately €2500.
My main use for the machine will be for work, using programs that unfortunately can't utilise multiple cores, relying mostly on a fast single core.
For work I don't need a killer graphics card but it need to be solid. I may hold...
That is great info, Spydertrack. Thanks a million.
I hadn't a clue where to start with mother boards and I didn't even realise I needed to know more about the cases.
Ill hold out for the 3000 cards releases and I'll mostly likely make the splash for the 3080 and the higher watt PSU. Lets hope...
Thanks Spydertracks, I really appreciate the input.
Regarding the case, what should I be looking out for other than what is aesthetically pleasing to me?
What would you recommend in the medium cost range?
I will hold out for the 3070 if I can, otherwise Ill have to dig deep for the 3080.
I am looking to build a machine in the next couple of months, mostly for animating (This will be a work machine but I will do some gaming on it too) I mostly use Autodesk Maya and don't plan to do much rendering on this machine, just animating.
As I understand it, Maya doesn't really...
