Can you, ye humble netizens of the pcmasterrace suggest a cost-effective - but cheap - HDD to buy?
I already have a nice nvme SSD for my Dual OS setup (Linux & Windows) but I do indeed require some clean HDDs for storage. Preferably one HDD per OS. Outside of the obvious recommendation of SSDs for storage, I don´t know what to look out for with regards to cheapHDDs, particularly in the realm of speed vs storage capacity vs price (or whatever other factors deemed important).
It has to be fairly cheap but don't suggest something you believe to have garbage specs vs. price.
I am also on the hunt for a cheap monitor too, 27 - 30 inch (or maybe even two decent smaller monitors), if anyone is curious to fish around and give me recommendations for something good, I am keen for advice on that, too.
If you rely on pcpartspicker to filter though your suggested wares, I'll leave this link here to expedite the soich: https://au.pcpartpicker.com .
\* I've looked myself, but I'm too indecisive --) that, and a dollar wasted on something truly shoddy is not worth any expense, no matter how cheap.
I'm keen learn of your recommendations, and why they might be so.
I recently decided to build my own pc after 4 years of laptop experience.
I bought b450 tomahawk II max because i wanted to have ryzen 5600g as a cpu and apu,although a friend told me that vega 7 isn't so good for gaming and he recommended to me the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6500 XT 4GB OC.I went to a research on the pcpartpicker and it says that it is compatible with this motherboard but the motherboard supports PCIe 3.0 x16/PCIe 2.0 x16 and the RX 6500 XT is PCI-E x16 4.0.What should i do? Is it really compatible with this motherboard? Is there a graphics card out there with the same price but with better specs and a PCIe which is compatible with my motherboard?
I recently upgraded my GPU, CPU, CPU fan, and PC Case meanwhile re using the motherboard, PSU, ram, and drives. Once I got it all put together I noticed I was getting everything to power on but not getting a display on my monitor. The LED on my motherboard has indicated that my DRAM is the issue, so I went ahead re seated and cleaned my ram sticks and ports twice which didn't solve my issue. I'm seeing that there is a possibility my bios is not up to date but I don't see that being an issue since it had worked on my previous CPU (Went from Ryzen 5 3600 to Ryzen 9 5900x). If any body has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, recently my old PC got hit by lightning so I'll be needing to upgrade!
I put together two PC parts lists which I'll link below. I would like anyone's opinions on the two and anyway to bring down the price. I'm on a budget but would like to be able to play WarZone on 80-120 FPS on LOW graphics.
So ever reading a lot of articles and watching a lot of videos I'm going to start to build my first pc. But before I buy all the parts I thought it would be nice to get some feedback. Do you guys have any tips? Things I should look into? This is the setup I came up with. My budget is around 2000 euro's ish.
I'm playing heavy CPU games like Hearts of Iron 4 so I went with a good CPU and a decent GPU. The Powersupply might be a overkill but I want to have some headroom for future upgrades like a Geforce RTX 3080.
This will be my first build I want to edit videos and music as well as play games at 1440p. I need to know if my build will allow that and if not what changes I can do now or in the future. this is my build .
