    Recommended Ryzen 3600 Motherboard, Memory and SSD

    This AMD build I’m contemplating, I honestly have to admit I have my doubts. Why? Several reasons but the strongest ones being that the last two AMD builds I did for myself have been flaky. Hard to pinpoint what was up with them but you get a feel for a machine and my last three Intel builds...

    Recommended Ryzen 3600 Motherboard, Memory and SSD

    My future system tentatively pencilled in: MSI X570 A Pro Motherboard - £170 2 x 8Gb Corsair 3200Mhz RAM - £79 (same as yours) AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Processor 6 core 3.6Ghz - £176 Intel NVME M.2 SSD 256Gb - £56 Total: £481. I'm hoping the Noctua cooler currently fitted to the 1st Gen Intel i7...

    Recommended Ryzen 3600 Motherboard, Memory and SSD

    Interesting, as you probably know I've been contemplating a similar system but all the combos I put together featured an X570 chipset. I've been pleased with my last couple of MSI boards but the cheapest MSI X570 board is around £170, more than twice the price of the B450 boards. Still, I...

    New AMD CPUs now available

    The cheapest, the 3600. I won't be using this machine for any of the latest games and will keep on using the rest of the system which includes a 2Gb GTX1050. It will replace an Intel 4 core 2600K i7 3.4Ghz. Motherboard (MSI); 16Gb RAM; CPU/Wraith Cooler and 256Gb NVME M.2 drive comes to £517...

    New AMD CPUs now available

    The new AMD '3' series of Ryzen CPU's are out now, Novatech are stocking them and I expect others are. Cheapest is £202 at Novatech, a 3.6Ghz 6 core. There seems to be a shortage of MSI 570 chipset boards, hope that doesn't last. I priced up a replacement system - CPU; Motherboard; 16Gb 3000...

    My Steam Games installed

    My game times vary, I've sometimes gone through a whole day without going near a game whereas a coupla days ago I thought I'd have a quick go at Nier Automata then four hours later... On the subject of finishing games I'll admit that percentage wise I've finished very few. The first game I ever...

    My Steam Games installed

    Well, I haven't listed those games installed in Windows; Galaxy (GOG); Origin and Uplay and then of course there's all the games not installed which probably fit into two categories - finished or crap. From Mr Mucks: I sometimes wonder that myself but with rare exceptions all the games I've...

    My Steam Games installed

    Games installed in Steam: These are just the games I have currently installed in Steam, there are a fair few games greyed out in Steam and of course other game clients and Windows games are not listed here. All games with a brief POV :D Game Of Wonders III - Have never actually played this...

    Printer purchase help and advice

    That was the one, I had to RTFM as the quick setup guide didn't cover things very well. It was a case of having to go through a sequence of button pushing on the printer then pressing the WPS button on the side of the router so they could see each other. Nothing, incidentally, in the router...

    Printer purchase help and advice

    I moaned too soon - it arrived today :blush: And they gave me a delivery time window 11:00 - 13:00. I can't get it to work wirelessly via my ISP router though, it's a Hyperoptic router. Managed to set it up on main machine via USB cable ok, nice to see a decent colour print again. My main...

    Printer purchase help and advice

    Aldi quote 5 - 7 working days delivery time for online orders, I ordered this printer four working days ago. Aldi use Hermes for their delivery service. The tracking status on my order has been like this for 3 days now: PC World had this same printer on sale for another £7.50 and there are...

    Mobile picture thread

    I'm not really a phone person and don't often use my phone to take pictures, it's a Samsung Galaxy S6 I think and it has tons of software on it that I neither use nor understand, it's all I can do to use it as a phone and text machine. I recently sprayed one of my turntables Nissan Emerald...

    News Raspberry Pi 4 Released

    I'm not disagreeing with you Abarbarian, I'm glad you've posted the prices though the accessory prices I saw on my link were higher than those. Would the sound play through a TV? I know most monitors have internal speakers that can be driven from a computer. If not then a pair of powered...
