    280x is only about 10-15% more powerful than the 280 according to userbenchmark. The difference in performance of a OC'd 280 vs a stock 280x would only be slightly noticeable if at all.

    Is there a reason you're looking at these and not a newer card though?

    Just purchased a new CPU, RAM, and MOBO and will need to transfer Windows 10 to my new build. I know that I can transfer the license to my new build once the OS is installed but I no longer have the Windows 10 iso file. Anyone know if there is there a place I can legally download it for free?

    [–] Moving Windows 10 to a new build code_and_coffee 1 points ago in buildapc

    So I also plan on doing this soon but no longer have a copy of the Windows 10 iso file. Is there a place that you can legally download it for free?

    I have a 1070 paired with a 27" 1440p 144hz monitor and I play most games maxed out at a steady 80-90 fps. Games like Overwatch and CSGO I'm getting 110+fps and that's with an FX-8350.

    [–] Simple Questions - September 22, 2017 code_and_coffee 2 points ago in buildapc

    Not much of a difference between any of them, so typically whatever has the best price or looks the coolest to you. I personally went with EVGA because they have great customer service and they also have a Step-up program where you can upgrade to another card within 90 days of the original purchase. Basically just trade in your old card and pay the difference between it and the new one (again only within 90days of original purchase though).

    Nah you can't do that. They need to be the same base model so two 650Tis or two 1060's for example, but not a mix.

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 1 points ago in buildapc

    Hmmm that's a little weird. I don't regularly monitor my temps cause I'm not overclocking my CPU but I would be surprised if it's that hot. I'll try to take a look tonight at my temps and get back to you!

    During big fights my fps drops from 100-110 down to 80-90. I just ordered a Ryzen 1600 cause I experience large drops in other games though.

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 1 points ago in buildapc

    The Dell S2716DG goes on sale regularly but is currently $479. By far the most recommended 1440p 144hz G-sync monitor on this sub.

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 2 points ago in buildapc

    Get a GTX 1060 and try to sell your 760. I just sold my Gigabyte GTX 760 for $100 on ebay which was WAY more than I was expecting. With a GTX 1060 you'll run most games at 1080p 60fps no problem!

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 2 points ago in buildapc

    Overall this is a pretty decent build, my only suggestions are to save you money and to get a bit more out of your budget

    Not sure what you'll be using the PC for other than gaming but 2TB is probably overkill starting off so I'd go for a 500GB SSD instead, or at the very least the 120gb ssd (maybe 250?) and a 1TB HDD with higher RPM so it'll be faster. The nice thing about storage is it's very easy to go back and add more.

    If you're willing to stretch your budget just a bit more it'd probably be worth looking at the 6GB version oft he 1060 as well. For ~$50 you could get a Ryzen 1600 too!

    I'm not sure if you already own the monitor listed but there are definitely a lot cheaper 1080p 60hz monitors out there so I'd look around to save some money (this one for example).

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 2 points ago in buildapc

    1440p 60fps high settings is achievable with a GTX 1060 in most games I think. GTX 1070 will get you 1440p at Max settings but is almost double the cost. So your best bet is probably the 1060.

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 2 points ago in buildapc

    The Ryzen 1600 should enough for your needs depending on what kind of work you're doing. Ryzen CPU's like faster RAM so ideally you want to get something with 3000Mhz. Any B350 motherboard should work for you as well.

    This should all cost you around $450.

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 1 points ago in buildapc

    I currently have an FX-8350 that's definitely bottle-necking my 1070 and figured the jump from the 8350 to the 1600 alone would be a pretty decent bump in overall performance.

    The going from the stock 1600 to the 1600 OC probably wouldn't make too much a difference then?

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 1 points ago in buildapc

    How much will overclocking a Ryzen 1600 affect overall game performance?

    I'm upgrading my current build to this here. I've never OC before so I'm a little nervous. I'll mostly be playing PUBG and Destiny at 1440p 144hz and wanted to know how much of a difference it will make if I OC the 1600.

    Thank you!

    [–] Simple Questions - September 20, 2017 code_and_coffee 2 points ago in buildapc

    I have this exact setup currently and it largely depends on the game. In Overwatch I get 110fps at max, during the Destiny 2 beta I was getting a steady 60fps with a mix of high/max settings.

    That being said my CPU is a FX-8350 which is bottle-necking my 1070.

    The Stock Wraith Spire cooler that comes with the Ryzen 1600 CPU is a really good fan that prevents you from having to spend the additional money on an after-market fan.

    By going for the Ryzen 1600 you'll save about $110 that you can put towards 16GB of RAM, which you'll definitely want for PUBG.

    If I were you I'd get the Dell S2716DG 27.0" 1440p 144hz monitor with G-Sync. It's not 165hz but it regularly goes on sale for $450 at Best Buy. Saves $350 that you can put towards the 1080ti that you're going to want.

    I just bought this monitor and cannot recommend it enough and I only have a GTX 1070.

    Don't forget to check your local craigslist posts! I've seen amazing deals on Razer Black widows and other $100+ keyboards for under $40 from people just trying to get rid of their stuff

    That's awesome! Most of the complaints I've seen thus far have just been about the difficult of the boss but that's part of what I enjoy about the Raids lol. Glad you're liking!

    [–] Daily Discussion - Free Talk Friday! code_and_coffee 1 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    That sounds pretty cool! What are your overall thoughts on the raid thus far?

    [–] Daily Discussion - Free Talk Friday! code_and_coffee 1 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    This might have been posted somewhere else but how does loot work in the new Raid? I heard someone mention tokens at one point but can't find anything anywhere.

    [–] Upgrading 128GB SSD to 250GB SSD? code_and_coffee 3 points ago in buildapc

    I'd go with at least a 500GB SSD, that way you can fit most of your programs and favorite games on it.

    Anything less than that and you'll have to pick and choose what games you want to install on it and be a bit more careful cause you might run out of space.

    [–] Monitor Opinions code_and_coffee 1 points ago in buildapc

    Just bought one of these and after having it for a month I decided I'm going to name my first-born S2716DG.

    In all seriousness though, this is a great monitor and I have no regrets whatsoever. The 27" version goes on sale quite often for $450 so I would wait until it's on sale again before purchasing!
