No I need money. Any suggestions to maximize my neetbux intake?
I need money too. How do I make money guys?
Work, scam or beg
Use your tax refund, nerd.
Next month I will be building mine.
how much would building the top of the line PC cost me nowadays?
I paid $3,062.64 just for upgrading:
That's not possible unless you live in a third world country
You overpaid for something on that list.
4k, but thats top top of the line everything. You could still build a perfectly fine 4090 comp for 3kish with lesser hardware.
I did in 2021 when GPU prices were retarded
yep, just got a 4090 for 1080p gaming on my 12 year old monitor
He probably wanted to futureproof. A 3080 10gb can barely play at 1080p on ultra these days. So he needs that 4090 if he wants to play on 1080p 7 years from now.
That's fucking stupid, and so are you.
A 4090 is literally twice the price of a 3080. If he really wanted to future proof he could’ve gotten the 3080 now and then another 3080 priced card in 3-5 years that blows the 4090 out of the water.
you're a fucking idiot
>A 3080 10gb can barely play at 1080p on ultra these days.
Even with RTX and DLSS turned on, I'm calling bullshit on every game. Including the most played titles available.
Can't do forspoken, can't do hogsharts, can't do dead space, can't do callisto protocol, it's really showing it's age. We're finally, FINALLY fucking moving past the fucking multigen release era, everything we're seeing lately is just indicative of games finally being designed with the new consoles in mind. 3080 cannot keep up, sorry to tell you.
i have A 3080 10gb and i am fine
if you have any problems with it's because of the CPU bottleneck
10gb is not enough
Well, is the raytracing using DLSS and Frame Generation or not?
If not, Nvidia is fucked.
yes, I got a 5900x in august and just bought a 4090, now I need to upgrade my display and get a new desk
at the time the 5800x3d was twice as expensive
Yes but for AI porn, not nugames.
I'm planning to build one, budget around $2000, 7900 XT + amd cpu but I'm hesitant whether to get 7700 (best priceperf and low voltage) or wait for 7800X3D.
>why not XTX
too high power consumption
to make that decision I would think about two things, what resolution and frame rate I'm playing at and how often I upgrade.
This build is meant for 1440p 144fps and my last PC was bought in 2016, I typically upgrade every 5+ years. Then again it would be easier to buy a new cpu for AM5 in case I need it badly.
>it would be easier to buy a new cpu for AM5 in case I need it badly
you could if you know you will do it, having your previous build from 2016 should tell you something.
I'm not sure if I understand what you mean anon
7800X3D or 13600K with DDR4 if you want max value
>too high power consumption
You do realize you can power limit any card? A 4090 at 350W is considerably faster than a 4080 at 350W for example
Moar coarz = moar efficiency
Recently built one with an rx 6800 and i5-13400f. It's pretty nice
I'm waiting for 50 series
Why do computers look so fucking gay now holy shit.
Actually the new parts arrived yesterday and today a friend is coming to help me out with them. Was using a DDR3 motherboard for the last...14 years? Something like that. The gpu was hard carrying my pc performance for too long
was going to complete my new pc on monday or tuesday until the cpu cooler got delayed by another week. next week is going to be long
tuf 3070 oc
kingston 32gb 3600mhz cl16
nothing gigabro, but i'm coming from a 10 year old potato
Hogshart or AMD shill?
It's just not viable for 1440p. 8gb is laughable.
Hogshart got it.
Is that in reference to the HP game
I want to but my desk is 105x50cm and I have literally no space for anything bigger. No room below the desk either. I have nowhere to place the pc AND monitor. I've been a laptopoor my entire life
>no space for anything bigger
I have a micro desk and getting a monitor arm was great, you just need to make sure the arm does not protrude from the back of the desk too much
got an rx 6700 xt paired with an i9-9900k, playing on a 144hz 1440p monitor. is the gpu/cpu combo decent? had stutters put the ass on atomic heart, le “it tuns so good” game. i also have 16gb ram, not sure if its worth getting more
>16gb ram is bad
imagine actually thinking this
32gb 6000-6400 DDR5 CL30-32 is the minimum now bro
>He doesn't know
If you have anything less than 64GB, you might as well put on a skirt
Don’t give these people any ideas
>less than 1TB of RAM
>LG C2 as a monitor
should I ? I'm on the fence
got a 65 inch c1 and it's great.
>people still buy intel cpus and amd gpus
I upgraded my 8 GB of ram to 32 GB and order a used RTX 3070 to replace my RX 590. I still have have a i5 7600k that I’ll replace with a 13600k whenever I can afford it.
I HATE NEON!! WHY EVERYTHING TECH RELATED THIS DAYS HAD THAT GARBAGE ON IT????
Why do zoomers love RGB lights so much?
Honestly hard to find shit without it
it's everywhere Anon
I wanted a full tower but all of them were expensive as fuck
so I got that box with the RGB lights
I hate all the lights.
>LOOK AT ALL OF THE COLORS!!!!1!
>YOU CAN MAKE IT YOUR OWN!111!!!!
>YOU CAN DO RAINBOW GRADIENTS AND HEARTBEATS AND WAVES

>t. Literal child
Grow up you fucking ugly ass autist. Lose some weight fatty.
I've graduated to series X
I sure did, sis.
now your pc has ADIS
I just SLI'd my 1080 the other day and got some new case fans. I don't really build new PCs I just upgrade the same one I've always used. I've been using the same case for over 15 years now and I think my processor and mother board are right around 10 years old. I don't need any more than that.
Is Bugs Bunny ok?
Yeah, he just needed to air out his insides a bit
Name 1 game that's worth buying a 4090 for and I will
I'd say Factorio but you're much more likely to be cpu bound
Elden Ring at 4k on a high refresh rate monitor and the FPS unlock mod.
Definitely 100% CPU bound, you need one of the new AMD CPUs with extra cache for that one. Any will do since it doesn't need many cores, but loves the cache.
Yes, it is barebones right now as I was waiting for my custom water cooling supplies to arrive. I just added a heatsink in the meantime. The supplies arrived yesterday so will get to it sometime this month. Ryzen 9 7900x3d, rtx 4090, 64GB DDR5 6400. Unreal performance. Finally hitting close to 200 fps maxed in games on my ultrawide.
Sick case. What's it called?
>mfw I just played Titanfall 2 on Northstar
I just wish the game did better commercially. It's amazing but what's left of the multiplayer is filled with people who are just too good for me
>LED fans are spazzing out now with the wrong colours
Might just rip all the LED shit out to be honest.
Need to overhaul my case anyway as the temps aren't great and the fans are too loud.
Are ITX builds worth it? Any threat of the temps being fucked? I live in a pod and want to upgrade from my laptop
No point, old PC runs everything i want
What fans are those? Kind of like the side lights. Need to buy all new fans.
Lian Li SL120’s. I have a similar looking build to that anon
>bought new hw after 9 years
>still not assembled months afterwards, because I can't be bothered
Nah, the parts are still expensive as fuck.
i will buy next week a i5 13700k and a 4070 TI, will be enough for me, i only play at 1440p 60 fps, dont care about meme tech. Only now you have a true 4K/120 fps GPU, 4090, raytracing is still at the beginning, it will take 1-2 gen at least to get good fps for 600$, especially at 1440p/4k
He said 1440p not 4k you retard
>Youtuber says thing!
I hate you gays.
>dont care about meme tech.
then go AMD you dumb retard. if you don't care about that shit and want pure FPS that's what you go for.
Don't care about RGB, black box, solid side panel, simple as.
Based Define R7 users.
Got the meshify 2 with the solid side panel.
Got everything I really need besides a new case and cpu cooler but I'm gonna wait for a sale. However I might cave in for a cooler because the stock one is loud as fuck for no reason. The Temps are fine but loud even at just 40 degrees
simple n gits the job done
Why did Nvidia skimp out in the VRAM department for the everything under the 3080? Feel like the 3070 should've at least came with 10GB
>Why did Nvidia skimp out in the VRAM department for the everything under the 3090?
My 1080ti has 11gb of VRAM, it blows my mind to see all these new GPUs with just barely more than that. Is it the newer class of VRAM that makes it better, or are they just stagnating?
>Implying I don't tinker with cars either
I've got a 1978 Lincoln Continental Mk V that I'm waiting for a fuel sending unit to get it back running as well as a 1976 Stingray that is ready to come off the frame and be restored.
>A computer is the lamest thing you could get that feeling for and I'm embarrassed for you
When you've upgraded the computer for almost half your life and have seen it go from a Geforce2 to modern hardware is a great thing. Try owning things longer and you will respect them more
>or are they just stagnating?
Your 1080ti is the issue Nvidia doesn't ever want to have again - high performance card that can be used for years and years in the latest and greatest. Skimping vram is a cost effective way to both reduce BOM and gimp a card so it has limited longevity.
Is the Titan a good card compared to it? I've seen them for years but just kind of ignored them, looking at specs it seems like the same card as the 1080ti but with one extra gig of VRAM.
iirc the pascal titan still had full FP64 so if you need that (hint: you don't for vidya) it is a beast. Otherwise it is just an expensive 1080ti in practical terms.
So it would be better for a workstation setting like video editing or 3D design? I've been wanting to build a video editing workstation and that might be what I put in it.
>is there a reason why 1080 Ti's are more expensive than a 2080 Ti's?
1080ti is about 100 bucks cheaper than a 2080ti, I just bought my second one for 250 last week.
>Is it the newer class of VRAM that makes it better, or are they just stagnating?
Just stagnating, memory bandwidth cannot make up for lacking capacity. The thing is that with the bus widths NVIDIA has been using for their top cards there just aren't many options. The 1080 Ti has a 352b bus width, this means 11 32b channels for 11 1GB memory chips, hence 11GB VRAM. The bus width depends on the bandwidth the card requires and NVIDIA's top cards have all been 320, 352 or 384b bus cards. Like I said before, that means 10, 11 or 12 32b channels that all need to be populated evenly with chips, so all these cards can get 10, 11 or 12GB VRAM, or they could double up to 20, 22 or 24GB VRAM. There is no in-between option like 16GB or 15GB or whatever else because you cannot evenly distribute the chips on all the 32b channels the card has and if you do that you get a GTX 970 3.5GB scenario where only a part of the VRAM is usable at full speed. That is obviously not desirable. Yet on the other hand just doubling capacity would be expensive since you either need double the chips or chips of double capacity (which may or may not have existed at the time each card was made). This has resulted in NVIDIA keeping VRAM on the low side for as long as they could afford to.
For a long time the 10-12GB VRAM size was just fine, even for 4k. 11GB was more than likely excessive for the 1080 Ti, but like I said they didn't really have any other options given its bus width. Since it was excessive back in 2017, it was fine for later cards too, like the 2080 Ti. It's only with Ampere where this started being pretty sketchy, though I'd still say a 12GB 3080 Ti is going to be generally fine today even at 4k, though maybe not always.
tl;dr: the choice is either to keep the same VRAM or double it, yet doubling it is expensive and was also largely pointless for games until recently
Amd has been doing it for cheaper for ages now, so I don't believe it's that prohibitively expensive.
Nvidia just wants you to upgrade sooner and doesn't want their gaming GPUs to supplant their overpriced enterprise garbage.
You're wrong, only the recently released 7900XT and 7900XTX have 320 and 384b bus widths respectively on the AMD side. Older cards from them have gone up to 512b and they've had the HBM cards too, but nothing particularly recent. Their last-gen cards had 16GB VRAM because they were using a narrower 256b bus (8 32b channels) and they also used slower, cheaper memory than NVIDIA does. So basically AMD chose more VRAM while NVIDIA chose higher bus width AND faster memory in order to maximize bandwidth.
>spend thousands of dollars on a brand new pc
>to play games you could already play with 10 extra fps
I don't get the meme, do you need autism
Got fuckall else to spend my disposable income on.
Its the satisfaction of building something with your hands. Especially when it's something that you've upgraded and maintained for many years. To see that 10 fps boost is like when you tune the engine in a hot rod and get a second faster in the 1/4 mile. Just simple satisfaction.
Buy a car or something then, autist lmao
A computer is the lamest thing you could get that feeling for and I'm embarrassed for you
bark more, dog
A computer! And a car! Thanks mom and dad 🙂
I will be upgrading from a 1070ti to either the 4070 or 4060ti in April.
Yes two months ago
I love it but when I first built it the mobo was faulty ( wouldn’t shut down properly ) had to replace that, and then the cable that plugged into the graphics card got faulty after a week or two of that. I replaced that and now have had no issues for a month+
Update your bios dipshit
How about learn how a computer works before shelling out thousands of dollars
Did you not read? I have been building computers my whole life, work with computers for a living, and did infact update my mobo bios. I replaced it with the exact same mobo it was fixed. The mobo was faulty mechanically.
Not until nigVidia resolves this retarded power connector bullshit.
in what way? the 3 pcie into 1 adapter?
yeah that shit was garbage and the sensors come loose if there is any bend in the cable and you will black screen, had to replace with third party. Apparently corsair coming out with a cable thats 3 from psu directly into gpu.
Yeah, last Wednesday in fact.
So far all I've done with it is play the RE4 Demo.
>tfw my 13900K is overheating
>instant 100c on a multi thread run on Cinebench
I just don't get it.
The 13900k is basically uncoolable as you can't pull heat off the IHS fast enough.
It will be better for software that uses double precision. You'd have to look up whatever software you want to use and see what it requires.
Yeah so i heard. I thought something was fucked up in my computer, notably the AIO, but it seems like i'm far from the only one to end up with such bonkers temperatures with the 13900K so i really don't know.
Doesn't thermal throttling automatically undervolts ?
Very nice thanks for the info
undervolt your shit and get a better cooler
Oh, and any good suggestion for a good cooler ? I'm using a 4000D for case.
Open for any suggestions. I'm not good with computers. This one was made by a friend, last time i built a computer myself was 10 years ago. I miss it though, maybe i will redo this one completely.
Not sure about AiOs, but a Noctua NH-D15 should be able to cool the 13900k just fine.
Also get a rear exhaust case fan, holy fuck.
I have this one with a push/pull fan config on the front of my case. I have the same case as you and I had to cut out part of the PSU shroud to fit it kek it is very thick, pic related. Works just as great as more expensive ones and is relatively cheap
That curled up metal gave me a good laugh, thanks anon
I have a noctua NH-D15 Dual fan for my i7-13700k and it does a good job, I also have a 5000D case which is a bit roomier than the 4000D. NH-D15 may be a tight fit and go over the ram unless you use only 1 fan.
Check your thermal paste, it could be on wrong, a shitty brand, or just gone bad. I had an ASUS ROG laptop forever ago that I constantly had to change out the thermal paste on. When I put Arctic Silver 5 on it it stopped overheating completely.
That's why you just buy Arctic, Thermal Grizzly or Noctua paste and call it a day.
Also applying paste is retard proof. As long as the amount if over a certain point, it just works, method used for applying it, doesn't matter.
It is retard proof but there are retards out there who can fuck that shit up. Since
was built by a friend it would be worth taking the cooler off and double checking it, a tube is what like what, 10 bucks? Just go ahead and replace it anyway just to be sure.
>method used for applying it
There are more ways to put it on than smearing it with your finger?
My thermal grizzly tube came with a small plastic spatula for applying it
I saw that with the one I ordered but it seemed to not go on as precisely as my finger. I can feel if its uneven with my finger and the sharp edge of the spatula can put it on unevenly. I did however use it to mix the paste because it had separated.
>There are more ways to put it on than smearing it with your finger?
Just put it on like toothpaste on your brush, smash that cooler down, done.
>>tfw my 13900K is overheating
Anon, are you planning to run a stress test all day? lol
to this day I had no issue with overheating at all even with heavy gaming season
is there a reason why 1080 Ti's are more expensive than a 2080 Ti's?
They're not. You're doing it wrong.
lol also, yes, but in reality. Not in pc building simulator bruh. cope.
That 1080ti will keep up with anything that comes out now and probab ly for the next 3 years, SLI it and you're fine.
>Just put it on like toothpaste on your brush, smash that cooler down
I've seen many of friends fuck up their mobo because they put to much on and do this. I prefer a nice thick layer rubbed in with my finger so I can feel the thickness.
>I prefer a nice thick layer rubbed in with my finger so I can feel the thickness.
I love my computer and she loves me.
i do an X for my thermal paste applications and 4 tiny dots.
>Built that new PC yet?

>high-end 13 Gen I9
I did, though I barely use it because I like to play on my steam deck. I'm very happy the option is there though
Indie games that would run on a PS1 (if we are being generous)?
The worst versions of AAA games?
Emulation that can be done on literally any console nowadays?
For roflmao mods like thomas-the-tankengine?

-Elden ring DLC "the reason I upgraded my pc"
-Path of exile 2

Yeah, currently playing Crysis Remastered at 4K,all settings on Very High (including RT) and thanks to DLSS the game runs between 90 to 120 fps.
How about you invest in a good display instead of financing Jesen his 23rd yacht?

I want to build a PC but monitors still suck even new OLEDs due to low brightness and matte coating. Leaning towards getting OLED tv + xbox/ps5.
is an RTX 7900 a worthy upgrade to an aging GTX 1080? =/
i'm tempted bros, but i don't want to shell out ~900 for a mediocre improvement
(4k display i'd like to actually be able to use to it's fullest, ER is the only newish game it seems i can actually run at an acceptable framerate with decent quality @ 4k)
upgraded the rest of the computer last year, but stopped short on a new card due to how silly expensive they are now.
Built a PC with a 12th gen i7, 3090 and 16GB DDR5 and it is pretty nice so far. Now just looking for a 27" high refresh, low input lag monitor
There is literally no reason to go beyond 1080p / 60 fps
T. Never played above 120 fps
4k is awesome if you ever do anything other than game on your pc. even basic office word is so much more comfortable on a 4k screen.
Starting my build on Tuesday. Picking up a Ryzen 9 7950X, X670E Mobo, and 32 gigs of RAM. Planning on getting a 7900XTX and a PSU next month too. Resusing my cooling and case because they are still newish.
built my first pc in july of 2022.
No. I havent't bought a GPU, PSU or CPU yet. Will wait for the 7800X3D. Want to buy a 7900xtx and am waiting for it to get cheaper, also thinking about Getting an A770 and waiting for next gen. Currently have a 1080 .
how long is this gonna last me?
holy shit gramps, where did you find this cold war stuff?
amazon, last year i think
cold war bunkers in the amazon jungle sounds cool
nvm , you just dont know what the fuck you are talking abou
whats wrong with it? most 3080 in amazon have 10 gb
Probably another 8 years until you start noticing performance issues in SOME games.
i buy a new pre-built every 4-5 years
my current setup is from 2019 with a RTX2060
only a few AAA games make the card scream in pain so still waiting to upgrade
Yes I did mid January. Loving it. Last one was built like 2012.
just ordered for my upgrade, have a 3080 since 2021.
and a 8600k since 2018.
also im too old for rgb lighting towers so my wife will be glad with the wood and black.
I still game on my dell laptop I bought 4 years ago
I've reached a point where I don't even think about upgrading anything so that's nice
Been out of the loop since I built my last one 11 years ago (a 980 and i5-4690)
What's a good budget build these days? AMD?
Don't care about maxing graphics, I play everything on medium-low @1080/60 anyway
people will say that I'm crazy but check out Intel Arc if you're on a budget.
Appreciate it gents
CPU: R5 5600
GPU: RX 6600
cheapest am4 board (probably an asrock a520 or something), ryzen 5 5600, rx 6600. 2x16gb ddr4 kit. you can probably reuse your old case, psu and ssd. should cost you around 500 bux in total and will be perfectly adequate for 1080p60 medium low for the foreseeable future. a 6700xt should be around 120 bux more and be up to 50% faster than the 6600 though, just saying.
Yeah, I built a nice pc a couple years ago. Now its already outdated. Wish I had just spent that money on a PS5 and a nice guitar instead.
I barely play any games anyways. The only thing im interested in right now is the RE4 demake. I play maybe one or two AAA games a year and thats it. A PS5 would do just fine instead of lighting 3k on fire and building a new PC again.
>I barely play any games anyways.
Yeah, a console is a good fit for that.
I grew up with pc gaming. Back then, 20 years ago, it was normal for teenagers to build and play games on PC, at least in Germany.
Now I work in IT, so it kind of comes with the territory, but this also makes me not want to sit in front of one after work again some days of the week. Had every playstation since the first one, so got a ps5 last week. Astro's Playground looks so fucking good on an oled tv with hdr, great game.
I figured you fags could explain some shit to me.
I a ThinkPad E14 3rd gen. Has an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with Radeon Graphics 1.80 GHz (AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 I believe). Now, Red Dead Redemption 2 is on sale on steam and I fucking want to play it. But I am not sure if or how my laptop will handle it. I can play Fallout 4, Gta IV and the modern Hitman games (with low settings but looks good) on it no problems. Here are some benchmarks for my gpu (for Red Dead they score ~ 36 fps on low settings): https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-RX-Vega-7-Graphics-Card-Benchmarks-and-Specs.450004.0.html
For Red Dead, the minimum/recommended specs are: Intel® Core™ i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X, and something equivilant to a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB graphics. So, could it be possible and worth it? On low settings, possibly even window mode? I do not know anything abouf GPUs and how mine compares to the ones listed above.
The last game they test is rdr2. It does 30 FPS at 720p on low. That's playable, but it'll look kinda shitty. You're scraping the bottom of the barrel with that kind of performance.
I guess I could live with 720p. As long as there is no stuttering and the game is actually playable.
Follow up question. Is it a problem if the gpu works routinely at 100 percent the entire time you play it? Like is it sustainable for the laptop is my concern.
The CPU is designed to operate like that. But if your laptop has bad ventilation it'll overheat and throttle. This won't affect its longevity, but ruin it's performance. Also having a hot as fuck environment will probably affect the longevity of other components. It's not ideal at all. So it depends on your laptop's ventilation. Maybe stress test it now and see how your laptop handles the heat
Reminder that if you're gonna spend $3k on a new PC setup that you owe it to yourself to get a good quality mechanical keyboard.
i dislike noise thoughever
Sure did, upgraded to a 3060 Ti from a 980, I’m DESPERATELY trying to find a game at 1080p that pushes this card and it’s just a fucking mammoth.
try rdr2 at ultra
that'll knock its ass to the ground if you're going for 120+ fps, I reckon
anything rtx. also i would recommend using dldsr to make games look nicer on a 1080p screen.
unironically, virt a mate.
I did(n't). I bought it and let them build it for me. Was free on black friday too, and didn't really feel like doing it again. I kept my 1080Ti too, though I got a strix one. EVGA is a respectable choice.
I have a GTX 1650 Super 4GB and an RX 580 8GB. Which is more powerful? I don't know which to put in my PC
About the same. The 1650 should be a bit faster on average, but the 580 may perform better in modern games thanks to the additional VRAM. The RX 580 consumes 2.5x more power.
Not until Armored Core specs release.
what games do you guys play on your pc
Anything I feel like.
Would you a 3d e-boi if there were no repercussions?
of course not mr officer
Outside of playing Visual Studio Code, YouTube, and Pandora (fuck Spotify), it depends. Sometimes XCOM. Sometimes Rust, Everspace, or Stellaris. Sometimes older gen 5 and under games. Sometimes games like UnMetal and Rollerdrome. Or even Hi Fi Rush, Doom Eternal, or honestly Sonic Mania and Yakuza 0.
I'm feeling iffy on Baldur's Gate 3, but I'm looking forward to Starfield. It'll compliment the Space Engineers kick I'm on since Star Citizen will come out in only 90 more years.
>pump above rad
Yup that is a suicide machine alright.
i ordered a new case and some car primer spray paint, gonna make the most boring and unassuming case so nobody asks me about my computer
1080ti is still working fine for gaming, but the AI porn is tempting me to upgrade.
I'm a grown man, I'm not building shit when a Chinese wageslave can do that for me.
Low IQ cope
>a grown man that cant spend an hour to put together glorified legos
Why should I? New games suck
built it 3 years ago.
Dont need to upgrade for a while.
Anyone got a good build that isnt retardedely high end neithet too budget?
i5-13600k and 4070ti
you should state what you want to play, at what resolution and which framerate rather than just vague stuff like that.
but I'm gonna tell you to go with a 6700xt, ryzen 5600, 2x16gb ddr4 and a cheap b450 / a520 mobo. add in some random 1tb nvme ssd, an acceptable case and an ok psu and it should cost you around 750-800 bux total. perfectly fine for 1440p60hz or 1080p144hz gayman.
Sorry, I am retarded about computers. I dont really need to play anything super high end, but would be nice with faster loads times in Warhammer 3. Dont care much about graphics and fps. I usually play older games, but that might be because of my old laptop. Thanks for the rec
i got that pc case and i hate it. the reset button is on top so if i sit my phone on it to charge sometimes it hits it and restarts my computer. also it only has 2 usb ports on the front so i had to buy a hub so i could have more ports
Hey look its jannies setup!
>autistic headphones, mechanical kb, 3d printer and soldering station and of course a self built gaming computer
its so weird a person with 100% male interests like this one day goes and says "im a woman on the inside". like there is absolutely nothing female about the person who lives in this room. not a single real woman on the planet is interested in this nerd stuff.
like i get some super gay hairdresser type with posters about glee and whatever on his walls, convincing himself he was just born in the wrong body, but the guy inhabiting this room?
These "people" aren't sane in any capacity don't think too much into. Stir fry trannies in a wok etc etc
There’s unironically a significant overlap with being trans and being autistic. If you don’t believe me, look it up.
and yet, i'm still transitioning and acquiring female privilege. stay mad
Nothing about this room says "woman"
whats with the intersex symbol? Don't they believe that they're fully woman and disregarded masculine side of them
What's the minimum for PC gaming these days? I have an old Haswell i5 and a GTX 770 I want to slap together to have a side PC for guests since normie trash doesn't work on Linux running windows in virtual machine because muh anti cheat, fuck anticheat with a knife
what kinda normie trash? a 5600g apu can run older ganes / esports passably but if you need to run newer games id get a ryzen 5 5500 + rx 6600 build. take the cheapest a520/b450 mobo you can find and 16gb ddr4 3200mhz/cl16, use whatever ssd and an acceptable case and psu. with the 5600g this shouldnt cost more than around 500 usd, with the 6600 you're paying around 650.
5600 or 5600x for amd, 12400f for Intel
If you’re tech literal the arc a770 is a really good deal, if not the 6650x or 6700x
Nvidia is far too overpriced to recommend and the 3060 is a joke
thoughts on this case? I will be doing some major upgrades very soon and am thinking of switching cases up. it's fairly cheap
all you need. everything above is the reason why good games are getting more scarce and you are the reason.
min/max whores suck my dirty asshole
Shit bang for buck
Ok so you have no clue
>Ok so you have no clue
NTA but QRD?
His point is probably that there's very little difference between the standard and X variants. Not worth the money unless the price difference is very small.
how long do you think a 5900x + 4080 PC could last? I'm hoping at least 8 years with my 1440p 240hz monitor.
No but I’m buying one in a couple weeks
>pricing doesn't include shipping
4070 ti is seeming like the next choice for a mid-high card, right?
You mean the card that just got universally shat on by reviewers?
Yeah, imagine giving 900 $CURRENCY to Jensen for just 12GB VRAM. Holy fuck, these people deserve to get fucked by nvidia.
The 4070ti will sell well to fools because ultimately no matter how bad value it is you can't sell a 1000 dorra card to someone who only has 900 dorra to spend. The smart move is to hunt down a used 3090(ti)/6900xt or - depending on street prices - get a 7900 xt.
The only reason to get one over a 7900xt is if you're playing at 1080p120+hz
Might be a niche use case, but streaming over a lan (GeForce experience/moonlight) is not something AMD can do at present.
I stream from my gaming pc in my office to a laptop bin the living room quite a bit, especially in the summer when the office turns into a fucking inferno.
Just use https://github.com/loki-47-6F-64/sunshine
Built it a couple years ago and it's good enough for me.
This is not the generation to buy cards unless it's a 4090. They all have negatives except for the 4090 which is merely price.
Same for the CPUs. Wait till prices drop.
Bought a 4090 FE a month ago.
Got a 7950X3D ordered on Monday and came yesterday.
Looking at mobos, memory, psus and cases now.
Pretty sure I'm going to get the Dell Alienware DW QD-OLED.
Going to watercool the CPU and GPU with a custom loop.
Just looking at radiators, fans, and tubing.
Love PC building so I figure a new challenge of watercooling it all is due.
Make sure you don't cuck your CPU by turning off gamebar
Might do it anyway and use process lasso or set affinity in task manager
I don't know why people poopoo gamebar. It's actually useful.
How so? It's bloatware at best and slows down my PC at worst.
It does not. Unless you are running a toaster.
How is it useful?
>built in resource and FPS monitor
>instant access to audio settings without tabbing out
>bunch of useful addons
>game capture shit if you want it
>integrates with xbox stuff perfectly
>rather alt tab out to fix audio settings or use keyboard shortcuts
>this built in software is bloat!
>i'm going to download bigger bloat to replace this bloat!
Bloat because it does nothing and takes resources. Its bloat because its built into windows. Do you also keep Tiktok, Disney + and others on a fresh install of windows too, you mongoloid?
Thank you for proving you have no idea about the listed programs and see gamebar as a positive.
You call it bloat yet you install another program that does the exact same thing which also takes up even greater resources. How fucking dumb are you. You're one of those retards that are obsessed with "debloating" by butchering your install.
Like I said, if you are obsessed with the minuscule difference in turning off gamebar your computer is a toaster.
Thank you for proving my point. Suggesting that MSI Afterburner or OBS take "even greater resources" is the pinnacle of retardation. Thank you, please keep showing all of Ganker how retarded you are.
Post your system resources with all your bloat programs vs gamebar anon. Go on, I'm waiting.
>continues retard tirade
>can't post his task manager with all his bloat programs open because he knows it's greater than gamebar
Oh no no no! Debloatbros, have we been made a laughing stock?
>double downing on his retardation
>y-you are retarded!
This is embarrassing, anon. It should be really easy to prove. You know you are wrong and are coping massively. Enjoy your "debloated" windows complete with programs that take more resources than default apps.
>STILL posting like a retard
keep going, PLEASE
>Still coping unable to prove a simple point
Oh god this is fucking embarrassing.
anon.. my sides.. lmao
>still can't provide a simple screenshot
Genuinely cracking up here. You've made my night. Didn't think someone could cope this hard.
I'm crying, bro.
Even this anon knows.
But you smoothbrained over this post, right?
I accept your concession at this point. Next time if you're going to make a claim with an easily provable screenshot, make sure you aren't talking out of your ass. Good luck with your "debloating". KEK
malding anon retreats with the "last word" lmfao
Still waiting for that screenshot. KEK
imagine defending gamebar, let alone windows
imagine being so retarded you go on a 5 post retard spree
Imagine being so retarded that you can't even post something that's easily provable.
You're the exact type of retard that cried about Steam at release and now have a 1000+ library. Actual retard.
>You're the exact type of retard that cried about Steam at release and now have a 1000+ library. Actual retard.
who are you quoting? LOL
you are swinging at the wind
you are actually retarded HAHAHAHA
>says the retard who can't open task manager
HAHAHAHAHAHA! Holy fuck you are genuinely retarded!
And this is why this platform is dog shit, because of subhuman trash bastards like you and the other retard. You drag down every topic with your retarded personal attacks and autism. You need a therapist and nothing else.
He made a bullshit claim and is unable to post a simple screenshot proving his garbage because he knows he's wrong. Don't blame me.
>posted pic related
>feeling confident about it
lol, bro you dumb
All of those things exist in gamebar, yes. What's your point?
So you "debloat" your computer by removing a program with minuscule resource usage, and you replace it with multiple apps that use more usage.
Anon, please seek help. You were clearly dropped on your head as a child.
Do you really think gamebar is useful as OBS for game capture?
Do you really think gamebar is useful as MSI afterburner for FPS display?
Both do better than gamebar but for some reason you want to endlessly shitup a thread in defense of it. You can do better, we all know it.
>moving the goalposts
Oh no no no no. Now it's not about "bloat", but how "good" it is. Debloatbros... it's over.
It is bloat. It should be removed because other programs run circles around it. Just because you bought a processor that "requires" it (because you are clearly too retarded to set affinity in task manager or use process lasso yourself) you want to defend it.
It is bloat just like Disney+, TikTok, all the mirad of games that come preinstalled on a Windows 10/11 install. No goal posts were moved but you knew that, anon. You're just merely pretending to be retarded for the sake of shitposting. Do better, apply yourself.
mirad = myriad
I don't own a 7950X3D, try again.
You think it's bloat but you don't even realize how little resources it uses. You uninstall it despite it being a core part of the OS and there's a reason why Microsoft doesn't let you uninstall it normally. Even if you get ZERO use out of it makes no sense to uninstall it because it has zero impact.
Comparing it to Disney+ is just peak dishonest. You've got no arguments left.
You fell for debloating memes, you're actually retarded.
This is what everyone calls preinstalled garbage from an OS install. Especially when other programs do exactly what this crap from Microsoft tries to push on users. You are brainwashed if you think that preinstalled garbage is good for you just because Microsoft doesn't allow you to uninstall it.
Also, let's not get into being dishonest, you have been dishonest from your very first post.
Go ahead and uninstall and complain when a certain game uses it as a dependency. Enjoy your butchered Windows install because you couldn't handle a minuscule resource usage that makes no difference to performance.
I also have some snake oil I'm sure you'll be interested in.
>task manager set affinity
I'm not talking about the 3D cache.
Of course you are. What games NEED gamebar to work?
>Enjoy your butchered Windows install because you
Dude, stop. lol
It fucks with the Windows/Xbox store services.
>but I don't use that!
And then a game comes out that does and you're on the forums complaining that the game doesn't work properly. All so you could save 50mb of memory usage. Tale as old as time.
>he didn't uninstall the Windows store completely
>making up scenarios
>as a defense
We are done here. You are actually making me retarded reading this inane ramblings.
It's so fucking common that's it's normal advice to not fuck with Windows/Xbox services because people are constantly running into problems when they play something that uses those services. You couldn't be more ignorant if you tried. Hell just the other day my friend could not install Halo Infinite because he fell for the debloat meme.
Looking forward to you moving the goalposts about how you don't play those games or services.
Gaybar is worse than afterburner and obs in every way possible and imaginary
built mine at the end of 2021, and got a 3080Ti at MSRP even DURING the mining craze, actually was able to snatch it at best buy before a crypto bro behind me could fucking snatch it up lmao
No, I bought a prebuilt.
should I upgrade my i5 6500 or 1060 first? Also to what?
>pc breaks in 2016
>try fixing it in 2017
>still doesn't work with new power supply, mobo, and cpu
>get pissed and don't touch it for 6 years
>bought a new case, gpu and ssd to just fucking get it working again
Im 100% in a sunken cost fallacy now, but I think it should be fine.
This is my problem. Something is always just not right even on a freshly built one. My shit has micro stutters that I notice that just make me angry. Don't know how to fix it.
I just stuck a 3060 in my old one
you have grass and tress pop in issues with bdo on pc anon? ;w;
I bought a pre built htpc (ps5).
Why exactly should I build a PC over getting a prebuilt, when I can find prebuilts that are pretty much neck and neck with the cost of a build?
Prebuilts like to cheap out on things like PSUs and sometimes give you less upgradeabilty.
If you don't know how to build PCs they are a good option, but you should just learn how. It's not hard and is a good skill to know.
You didn't really give a genuine good reason m8.
I think getting a prebuilt with a shit PSU that fries your entire system is a good reason to not buy one.
>It has a bad PSU because I said so
You aren't even engaging in good faith. Get fucked gay. Tried helping you.
Why would you put a bad PSU in a system when you are forced to give multi-year warranties, which all prebuilts do? If it fries the system you will legally be obligated to replace the entire system. Most illogical.
Why are you pushing so hard when asking for an opinion? If your retarded ass needs someone to vindicate your poor purchasing decisions because you can't be bothered to build adult legos then yeah, get a prebuild.
I just think it's funny you're still stuck in like 2016 where building a PC was a good idea. It's just not in 2023. But hey man, stick with a meme because someone told you it in 2012. Prebuilt>Custom. It's cool you are very proud of spending 5 minutes putting together your uninsured box, anon.
You're shitting on building a PC because you're too scared to try. You're trying so hard to convince yourself that it's a bad thing. You're as transparent as a window.
You're stuck in 2021 where crypto prices are fucking insane. They've dropped WAY back down and while prebuilts aren't nearly as bad as they used to be with the variety of options on the market, they're not that good either, you usually still save a couple hundred by assembling yourself. Also avoiding bloat and OS costs.
It's kind of time to just get over your meme, anon. No one has to build a PC unless they want. It's not necessary. Stop lying to people to get them into building something they'd rather not.
I'm not saying it's necessary, I'm not the person you're arguing with, just saying that it's not nearly as clear cut one way or the other. If you want to squeeze every dollar out, building your own is once again the way to go. Also gives you better choice.
It's not a strawman, you're just transparent. You're too lazy and scared to try something new that you cuck yourself with premade crap. That's fine, but don't pat yourself on the back for it.
>when I can find prebuilts that are pretty much neck and neck with the cost of a build?
It’s always been about upgradability and choice in components. But prebuilt.. man.. Cases designed for specific sized components, mbs gimped on ram slots, stuff like that. Pass.
There’s also a kind of nerdy fun with computer Lego assembly, and prebuilt are always laden with garbage shovelware , if you’re going to have to nuke and pave anyways, why bother?
1660 super, i5-10400, 1080p, 16 gb ram
Got it built last weekend, just deciding what GPU to get.
How is RE4make performance on recent hardware? 6900xt, 6950xt, 4080, 4090 and so on.
My workplace 4090 has 0 trouble running re4make demo at hiccupping 120fps 4k. maxed. Occasionally drops down when I'm surrounded but by and large solid.
Games at working
I edit video, basically I show up to work, have a 4090, 13900k, 128gb ram, etc, and set shit to render, then after I push out my content for the day I have free reign, sometimes work on other projects in the pipeline, most of the time just play games.
Kinda nice working for a gigasupermegacorp sometimes.
buy a mac
Thinking about upgrading my CPU and motherboard. My 4770k has served me well, but it’s gradually dropping below minimum requirements for some newer titles that I’m interested in. Should I go AMD or intel? I was thinking about shopping around for an AM5 socket mobo since AMD said they were going to support it for about another decade or so, leaving me with some options later down the line. On the other hand, I kinda want to wait until they come out with a few more AM5 GPUs. Also, how hard is it to install a new Mobo and CPU? I watched a lot of videos on it and it seems simple enough.
Add up the motherboard, CPU, and DDR5 price and get whatever is cheaper. If it's Intel, get that, if it's AMD, get that. This will depend on deals and location. But both are neck and neck at the moment and both are fine choices.
PC gaming is garbage. I'm much happier with my PS5.
The right tool for the right job, you fucking retarded cocksucker.
I won't play FPS or RTS on a fucking console, while I won't play racing, platforming or JRPG on a fucking PC.
Man I'm still mad that I bought soul hackers 2 on pc, it's fucking unplayable, god damn.
Oh yeah, forgot about you gays being either underage or poor, not possessing a living room with a big tv, sorry.
console is a pc
I got an xbox to compliment my pc gaming nicely 🙂
My RTX 2070 is still serving me well. Most multiplayer games aren't intensive so I get my 1440/120 experience with those. Single player games I usually try to tweak to 80+ FPS. The more intensive ones having DLSS helps a lot. Might upgrade when the 5070 comes along.
I just built mine. Got a cheap montech case that rips that design off. God I love chinks
can you gaylords marry already
I did. 7700x + 7900xtx. Bretty gud runs my 10 year old games at a solid 300 fps
What are the best windows 7 compatible cpus and gpus?
7950x3D and 4090
I heard rtx only goes up to the 30 series on windows 7.
>on windows 7
not an officially approved os
5950x/5800x3d + 3090ti or 6950xt for official GPU drivers, 7950x3d is too expensive and intel's big.little are a problem on windows 7 if you run software that harnesses all cores but can't tell which is ecore or pcore so you have to use process lasso to manually assign cores.
How do I get a 6950xt to work on windows 7?
Get the windows 7 driver off AMD's website. Just used pic related on my windows 7 nvme partition.
Thanks for the help, although it looks like getting a ryzen 5000 series cpu going on w7 is going to be a lot more involved.
Not really. Generation2 release
or this from Ganker
although it's always best to edit your own iso using NTLite, but if that's too complicated those two links are good enough
You'll find that nu-software will be stuck at old versions and at this point most AAA Steam titles won't play out of the box, which is why I picked a linux distro to play newer games. Still worth using if you're not inclined to the Internet of Things web.30 corporate is pushing, tired of Microsoft.
for me it's the watercooled laptop
I still don't understand this VRAM retardation. You need VRAM to use high res textures. In my experience 8gb textures look fine, I just want my games to perform better. No game is going to have MINIMUM requirement over 8gb for a very long time.
yes, piece by piece since november since I got sick of using DLSS on my 2070 super. managed to snag a decent deal on a 1000 watt plat PSU since I expected the price of the 3000 series to drop or for the 4000/7000 series to get reasonable pricing at any point in time. ended up getting tired of waiting for more cuts and snagged a 6950 xt at $700, about 3 weeks before it dropped to $650.
just game and hardware companies ignoring and making optimization worse so you buy retardedly expensive shit to play a crysis 1.1 looking game
Peak leddit. I hate how the "plain colored box" look has taken over every case manufacturer's design. I miss shit like the NZXT Phantom series. It actually has design elements to it whereas every new case just looks like Fractalshit.
Pic related, how a gaming computer should look if you're not a millennial soichugger who's obsessed with "minimalism."
>no front intake
You enjoy your components being 90C and your PC sounding like a jet engine, huh?
It has a front intake. The black part on the bottom half of the front is mesh.
I haven't seen any new cases with designs that aren't "solid color perfectly rectangular box with window," at least none that aren't made by chinks out of shitty chinkmetal and painted with lead.
I'll probably just keep my Storm Enforcer forever.
You can still get gaudy 1998 racecar shit if you want.
bet if this pos would've been meta rn you'd be fawning over fractal black boxes just the same
Wrong. I've hated black box cases for as long as I've been aware of their existence and the existence of people who recommend them for their "sleek minimalist look." So, over 10 years now.
If you want your computer to look like some shitty Apple product then go ahead and get a plain box case.
Who fucking cares what it looks like, I just want a cool (i.e. temperature) PC with nice airflow
You can have that without it being a hideous piece of shit that looks like it would belong in a balding, bearded, bespectacled manchild's "minimalist" apartment.
It's not about performance. It's about sending a message
>I hate how the "plain colored box" look has taken over every case manufacturer's design.
inwin and yeston are the only companies trying anything
Oh come on this is embarrasing.
>I NEED a sword on the side of my case
no steel blade for you? perhaps, you want no trouble? a jackie chan fan? the brass ladder is for you
Yeah, nah, that's just going too far in the other direction. And it's still just a perfectly rectangular box with some fake rivets and a sword on the side.
>finally bothered to connect my old hard drives to new pc and got my reaction images back
feels good man
Have a 1070 and only now I feel a need for upgrades. Fuck what should I get bros I haven’t upgraded for 5 years
i have two candidates for a new pc.
around the same cost.
AMD probably has more upgradeability in the future. But 7000 series has had a few hiccups.
It's really a coinflip.
If you can wait a few weeks for the 7800x3d, that is the CPU to get.
The AMD cpu is an EASY choice here, and I say that as somebody running a 13900. The 7900x benchmarks noticably higher than the 13700 and consumes significantly less power, which also means it is much easier to cool. Your 240mm radiator will NOT be able to cool the 13700 at full load, most 360mm radiators will not be sufficient for that. It should be sufficient for the 7900x though.
>7900x benchmarks noticably higher than the 13700
Not true and it also depends on DDR5 speed.
AMD, but double the RAM, change the PSU to a G6 EVGA, the SSD to something with a marvell controller and the cooler to a DH-15 with 3 fans
Yep. Feels good to finally have something worthwhile, after running on the same CPU/Motherboard for 9 years.
May I suggest looking at 2 4TB SSDs instead of 4 2TB SSDs?
Price. The cheapest 4tb SSDs cost around 50% more per GB. Would have been nice in terms of expandability, since I could run 4x4 eventually, but not for an extra $300.
Yes, I bought an expensive computer, but I DID have a budget to work within even if it was extraordinarily high, and I feel like that kind of price/gb would have been a waste at the time.
was there a buy 3 get 1 free deal or some shit lmao
>buying prebuilt CPU coolers for hundreds of dollars
>not just making a custom loop
ishygddt. If you can afford a closed loop cooler you can afford to build a custom loop. It's like you people don't even appreciate building PCs. I'd kill to have the money to properly watercool my computer.
wtf is a prebuilt CPU cooler? do you mean AIO?
I guess prebuilt was a bad choice of words. I meant closed-loop coolers like the one
this guy has. As opposed to a custom loop where you buy a CPU cooler, a radiator, a pump, reservoir, tubing, etc. and plumb it together yourself. If you're spending over 4 grand on a PC there is no reason not to do a custom loop unless you're just lazy. Especially at that price, you might as well spend a bit extra and water cool the GPU as well.
Custom loops cost WAY more, there's MUCH greater risk involved especially if you don't have any experience with them, and depending on the setup they might not even offer any real advantage.
When I built
, it was my first time using liquid cooling AT ALL. I did say that my previous computer was built 9 years ago, so it's not something I have a ton of experience doing. I can't even cable manage for shit.
The performance difference for the price is not worth it.
Spending a bunch of money on cooling parts to squeeze an extra 5% out of your GPU/CPU is just a waste of money.
where can i learn more about watercooling/custom loops?
>If you can afford a closed loop cooler you can afford to build a custom loop
maybe if you got a buddy that memed into building their own loop and you gave them cash for their scraps & borrowed their tools. my friend ended up paying over a grand for their custom loop due to the cost of material and tools. the process of building a custom loop is a hobby project, not something done for performance.
I actually own tools though, as most people should.
>the process of building a custom loop is a hobby project, not something done for performance.
Well, yes. But so is the process of building a PC and not just buying some prebuilt hunk of shit.
AIOs are significantly cheaper then custom loops, i respect the people who do them but they are definitely enthusiast tier
>Built that new PC yet?
I intend to end it when my current toaster croaks.
Dis bro got the Cherenkov Computer
I have severe, uncontrollable eczema and psoriasis. I love my tower but frankly my desk is just a mess of dead skin and dust, every single day, if I'm being frank it takes under 6 hours for it to go from clean to a layer/film.
Would I be retarded to stick a couple air purifiers around my tower? I don't really know how to keep my shit clean. Keyboard too. I clean it religiously but when I have to do it multiple times every day, yanking off all the keycaps etc it just gets draining. I figure maybe there's something I don't know
first of all go to a doctor and get your shit under control
you can keep your PC in a different room if you have long enough cables
>go to a doctor
I have, like I said, it's uncontrollable. I pay about $300 a month to stop total skin breakdown in creams ointments and otherwise, this is the best it will ever be. I have to shave my head because the moisture that gets trapped inside regularly grows dandruff fungus. Shitsux, wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
And I've considered re-housing the tower, which is fine, wouldn't be an issue of cordage I guess, but I thought it introduced latency.
you need to get on immune modulators if your shit is actually that bad, creams and other trash they're trying to shill you won't do anything
you're not going to notice the latency
I'll give it a try then. I'll give splicing some longer cords on my m&kb a try, or wireless if it's finally less awful.
And yeah my health shit is just what it is, I've tried, man. I have bullous pemphigoid, but unfortunately it's just compounded with my eczema and psoriasis. My eczema and psoriasis used to be under control but the last like 4-5 years, ever since I started working, completely awful and out of control, totally wild. Eventually had to go on disability because of it. One day either it'll kill me or magically go away, that's how it usually goes.
you can buy pretty long display port cables and other cables
you can also try wireless keyboards and mice, the tech has come a pretty long way
i don't think that surrounding your pc with air purifiers is going to do anything though
if you really want to meme it up build a shelf that's high up and put your PC on it since most of the dust and such settles to the ground
Yeah that was my secondary ideal, I live in a fairly short 1-story though so much higher than my desk is the ceiling. I have like 20m cables for monitors and power and ethernet and such so that's not a problem.
10+ years with this build so far OP
I'm right now trying to build something for a friend who's falling hard for the RGB and tempered glass memes.
A little RGB is alright, just don't go crazy with it. Tempered glass does look good if you have any kind of not shit build, and you are I'd say you are 95% likely to end up with an actually better case that way anyway (defined by airflow, ease of building/cleaning etc, maybe I/O).
No, but I have to. Because my gaming computer died. I've replaced the power supply, ram, hard drive, graphics card and even the processor with known working spares but it still won't even give a beep code during POST.
Where did I go wrong?
Sounds like you need a new motherboard.
your mobo is probably dead, sorry bro
any PC in the world can run zombie panic, co-op horror, free on steam
I don't want to build a pc, I'm going to buy a pre-build and you can't stop me!
I hate modern aesthetics so much
>my face when my brother fell for the gaming laptop meme
and to top it off he just went and bought a ps5 anyway
No, they're aren't any good games on PC right now
I'm getting a Strix 4090 today and a 990 pro tomorrow and then I'm done for a while, got 16gb of ram and a 5800x3d already. Finally getting rid of my old GTX 1080.
Why must you hurt me so? Have I not suffered enough?
Will I make it, bros?
