    Question Worth pairing a 3060 with a i3-9100F? WWYD?

    My place in the EVGA queue came up for a 3060 so I ordered it for my girlfriends computer. We wanted to upgrade her rig before some upcoming games release and I imagine this will be the only time in the next year+ I will be able to snag one for her. She currently has a 9100F which in most games...

    Question Should I buy Ryzen 7 5800x or wait for GPU as well

    My plan is to play and stream CS:GO on a semi-pro level with a 144hz monitor. You might be thinking that I don't need a crazy powerful machine to play csgo because it's almost 10 years old. You don't if you want to play casually 60-144 fps. I did some research to see what kind of PC I need to...

    Question Bottleneck, potentially?

    So, I managed to get lucky enough to get my hands on an RTX 3070 after waiting in line at micro center for 3 hours, and now I have a very important question...... I'm using a Ryzen 5 3600X CPU. Will that be a bottleneck to the 3070? Mind you, most of my applications and games are on a 4k TV, at...

    Question Low FPS and Minimal GPU, CPU and MEMORY Usage

    Hi, ever since I built a new gaming PC I often come across certain games which are typically more CPU (or at least not very reliant on GPU)intensive which have low FPS (20-45) With intermittent Lag Spikes. Its getting pretty frustrating that there is no clear bottleneck I can see in any...

    Question CPU good enough?

    Hey I'm planning to buy a gtx 980 and I was wondering if the i3 10100 would be enough for the gtx 980 or do I need to get the 10400 I have a super low budget so I would like to keep the 10100 but if it's going to cause major fps loss I can probably get the 10400.

    Question When will the CPU become the bottleneck for 4k gaming?

    I know the gpu is the bottleneck right now but I want to get a cpu that will continue to run 4k as well and as long as possible. Is it worth it to buy the 5900x now because it will continue to run better in 4k in the future or would something like the 3600x run just as well and last just as...
