The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]

For most people, I think so,
Getting 120+fps in 4K with good graphics setting requires some pretty expensive hardware, however you can run 120fps in 1440p with ultra settings for a far more modest budget, and it's a big leap in both resolution and graphics from previous gen consoles.
You can see in the graphs above that even thought the 6800XT is ahead in 4k. It's not hitting 120FPS on all games.

6900XT or 3090 will be required for 4k gaming. £1000-1500... as you say 1440p is much more achievable on a budget.

I got a new 1440p monitor this year and see no need to update it for a long time to come.
Yea that's my get out of jail with my lads PC, his monitor is 1440p and his current 2060 will run 1440 @ 120fps, so no point in him upgrading his GPU, just hope he is happy with his Asus Rog B550 MB and 5800x CPU.

As I understand it, if you've got Zen 3 as well, you get the extra 5-15% boost from SAM which makes it even more convincing.

I think that's only with the X570 boards.
I think B550s are included too:


"Currently, AMD Smart Access Memory is a feature for systems with AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processors, AMD B550 and X570 motherboards and Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards. There are no technical limitations to support SAM on other platforms, other than supporting certain features that are part of PCIe and firmware standards. SAM leverages the AMD device's resizable BAR feature and has been validated. We also tuned the driver to deliver optimal game performance with Ryzen 5000 Series processors and Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards. We're excited to show how it will improve PC gaming."

My brother bought a pre-built ACER gaming PC from Curry's ages ago. Came with a 9th gen 9400F and a 1060Ti but never ran mint. I told him to upgrade his CPU cooler and his RAM which made a difference but his CPU and GPU temps were still up at like 80⁰C under normal load.

Told him to f**k the fancy case off and get a 6 fan £50 case and I'll swap everything over. Did it for him yesterday and now everything runs 40⁰C cooler!!!😳

Was the original case still in its packaging something? 😂

A bloke at work keeps saying about a £800 gaming PC he's bought for his lad that keeps blue screening. I just pretend to not hear him because I'm not getting involved in any of that!

Why are pre-builts so bad still?!

Nah it just had 1 80mm exhaust fan in the whole f**king case!!😂

I did tell him to save his money and I would have built him a PC but you know how people are these days. Finance and a year without paying anything and he was all over it 🤦‍♂️

Fast forward less than a year and he's already had to buy a new mobo, cpu cooler, RAM, case and case fan header

He's loving the pre-built life then 😂

That’s something which was better in the old days. Put in a disc. Play. Game saves stored locally etc.

Now you need 407 different game launchers from all the diffferent publishers. Steam, origin, uplay, battlelog, whatever the blizzard one is... leaves your program files & start menu folder in a right mess not to mention needing yet more passwords, more emails about updates to T&Cs or wanting the date of my first sneeze for 9 factor authentication.
I disagree. Play game with disc, lose disc or pc dies and it’s a pain in the arse.

Riot games really need a launcher though, it’s becoming a pain with all the different individual game installs.
