and for gaming, amd has yet again produced garbage which is bad for us as intel can charge whatever they want.
And yet Intel has suddenly brought forward their new cpus & platforms by at least 3 months, implying price drops on current ones in due course...
Yep and already specs on yet another motherboard release with the 300 series, I don't know about you guys but I'm getting sick of intel releasing a new chipset motherboard every year with nothing but the most basic upgrades, it's become a joke it's like there grasping at straws while scalping joe public and now it just aggravates me to see another.
the complete blitz of z270 boards released overpriced pieces of junk blanketing the market with an obscene amount of boards with asus being the worst separating them by as little as a usb 3 header and Wi-Fi module, what a joke.
To be fair the mobo makers make very little on each board. Thats why ecs, abit and sapphire(mobo unit) went up in smoke.
Oh come on they're making plenty, built by machine using cheaply bough Chinese components running all day spinning out boards oh they're making plenty of money, profit is high but here's the thing right now on amazon most sales on the top 100 mobo's are for H series and B series both intel and amd, there are more z170 boards in the top 100 than there are z270 and that's just in the u.k. so that should tell them something.
The market is massively shrunk since the 2000s heyday. Note that i'm not talking about intel's desire to produce a new chipset per 2 cpu generations
Ye I agree with that, imo they brought it on themselves and there really doing themselves damage now prices are just to high and it pushes people to the used market and were all recycling old systems that are still just as good but now these companies make little to no money where if they'd priced better then it would not be worth shopping the used market, prices are up as a result sales are down and its there own fault for the greed increasing profit margins, there's enough used gear out there for us all and there's little innovation being done, plenty of greed and corruption but not much else.
Nvidia sales plummeted this year which is why all the price drops and promises of refreshes and volta this year hoping an injection or performance will make them money, blind to the fact that it's all about the money if the 1070 was priced better or the titan which should really only be a $500 card then I'd be buying graphics cards every gen, maybe not titans but 1070's at £250-£275 for sure the 1060/1160's should be the sweet spot card at £175-£200 yet is some cases there almost £300 asus at it again with 3 fans no less lol.
intel are also in trouble selling overpriced items people can't afford and issues with 10nm, now with amd upping the game they're in bad shape trying to push through x299 which will not be great and cost wattage with there lowest chip at around 125 watts where ryzen is 95w and still these morons haven't caught on nobody can buy these items the longer you charge these prices the less money you make we all buy used systems and are happy therefor we don't need to buy new even when they do drop prices.

I don't think personally consumer £250-300 mobo is warranted. Nvidia has massively overpriced their cards, nearly everything they have ever done outside their gfx cards has been a flop. Who remembers their nvtv card ?.. :D

the downward spiral of desktop, is down to tablets and smart phones.Yet, intel and nvidia jacked their prices up, which killed the sector even further. Old school economics.

If you are buying a 1080ti, don't waste your time on that trash, get the GIGABYTE GTX 1080 Ti GAMING OC for only £675, including the postage! This card is £770 + P&P on the oh so bargain-tastic OCUK, wouldn't waste my time. I've posted a deal thread HERE! for anyone interested.

Still to be honest it's not all that different in a few retailers/consumer forums.

Review on the controller https://youtu.be/Se21u9dkM-4
I bought a steel series keyboard before my current one. After a year or so a bunch of the keys started randomly registering douple presses. Also had a mouse from them where the mousewheel stiffened up until it became unusable.

Not impressed by them. Premium pricing for things that don't last.


wow cheers , will have a look.

playing FPS games, division, duex ex, rainbow six ATM. watchdogs and new sniper ghost warrior when cheap enough...
Amazon reviews on the controller suggest it may not be PC friendly, in fact there is a separate version on sale for Windows.

The 1070 would be good with this monitor. High end AMD gpu's with freesync would make the most of this.

Would think a 1060 will not make the most of this spec monitor. Surely a 1070 would be worth it.
I have a 1070 for my 1080 monitor but it's 144hz g-sync so like the high FPS.
Horses for courses i guess, enjoy though, voted hot.

It is a great monitor, colour reproduction, refresh rate both are fantastic (once tuned), a very low 4ms delay as its ahva ips screen type...
However, not a deal, Scan do it at £400 and £11.50 delivery.
I bought it earlier this year at £400 with free delivery from ebuyer (offer ended).
I havent really even looked recently (since I bought it) but it keeps hitting the £400 mark.
Not going to vote it hot or cold as it's still very good bang for your buck at this price, its a bargain, but since its cheaper elsewhere you get no heat either as its not a deal (plus overclockers customer support ewwwwww I always try to avoid).
Glad you're enjoying the monitor, I cant wait for mine!
Cheapest I could find last night, but then I'm not very good at waiting - 4 day weekend ahead of me, need it ASAP!
Like i said, still a good price, it will be money well spent, thats why i'm not voting it cold.
but beware freesync and running it at 144hz/fps for a better result sometimes limiting fps on radeon settings is better as its more pleasing to get a steady frame rate than one that jumps around loads. if you limit the top end sometimes you get better low end frames. For example if i just freesync then frames jump between approximatly 50fps to 144fps in Rocket League where as if i limit it to 72 it runs at a very steady 72fps, I mean it never waivers.
I only mention this as you are upgrading from a 60hz just incase you arent aware of how it will try pushing 144hz/144fps then throttle when your card struggles. Obviously I don't know what card you have but maybe this advice will be of some help to you when tweaking. added bonus is you can also often keep the gfx card cooler and quieter twith a little limiting :)


Brilliant, thank you mate!

I am running a gtx1060 though, so no option of Freesync, so I will definitely be trying the frame limiting.

Deal is dead now, but hopefully monitor tomorrow, so that will cheer me up :)
just ordered mine from Amazon for £411

There is a contextual difference between held and used and 'stored', even more so on a deal for "Storage" .

So yes if we want to be pedantic Data is stored in Ram but only while applications are using that data, the data will then be written to storage be that local HD, SSD or storage elsewhere (a cloud provider for example).
In my 20yrs+ working in enterprise IT we have called that usage of RAM as "Held", "Cached","Queued" or even "Loaded" but not "Stored". We store data on disks or tapes....(yes sadly the world still uses tapes :-( )

And in the context of a thread with the subject of "Seagate hard drives on sale" I think we can safely assume storage means non volatile spindle based storage...in this context as per the OP's original statement..."A hard drive is a storage medium that stores all of the software on your computer, as well as all of the data used by that software" is correct.



Wondering why the OP got banned.....

so no data is held in RAM?
No. Otherwise it would be lost on power off. Applications load into and RUN from ram....But nothing stored there
Oh how wrong you are.
Obviously everyone is entitled to an opinion....however yours is the wrong one on this occasion.....
Afraid not fella, why dont you scurry off and Google or whatever on how a computer uses RAM.
Yes it is volatile storage but that was not the point as the original description says 'all of the data used by that software'.
What about SSDs, web based data?
You are technically correct. The best kind of correct. Maybe include this in your first comment instead of leaving ambiguous ones next time :P

e.g. "So no data is held in RAM?" looks like you being a bit clueless about the difference between memory and storage, whereas...
"So you're saying no data is ever held in RAM ever? What about caches?" looks pedantic but gets your point across.

What does the BIOS (ROM) have to say about all this? A bios strike is inevitable, unless its leading role in storing software on computing devices is recognized, our comrades in the SSD union will also strike in sympathy.. WE demand our writes!

Is this con or for real? How dies a 'Gaming' Headset get sound faster from the computer to your brain and v.v.? Or is it just a naming excuse to extort a premium from gullible folk?

This device may have other virtues - but gaming advantage? I await a reasoned response.

Yep. This card = about 13k in Firestrike, vs about 8.5k for the 770

Edited By: mcsalty on Apr 09, 2017 10:40: Gave total system scores rather than graphics scores.
I'd probably have bought this, if I hadn't picked up the EVGA SC deal from Amazon the other day. Still think I got the better card, but w/e.

Why does the box have a handle?
Like, who in their distribution team brought up the idea to put a handle on a GPU box? You gonna walk down the street with it, arms swinging with the box dangling from one of them? Maybe it's a concerted effort to save retailers money on $0.02 plastic bags? Who even buys GPU's from stores anymore anyways? And why would it be put on the box when orientated vertically? Surely it'd make more sense to put it on the long side of the box?
What's the deal?
It adds a cool feel to the product. You'll notice on a lot of high end products, the box presentation is better and better. This represents the low end of the totem of 'high end box presentation'.
Put a handle on it is step one.
Is racing stripes step two?
It's like, "you can't handle the power of this GPU, oh wait you can with this handy handle."

Increase power limit to +50% in driver settings, solves power throttling issues.
Did you do this based on any info? Have sent my first one back trying to decide if a replacement would be a waste of time if I end up with the same issue.

Based on experience with previous AMD cards including the RX 480, the 480 is capped at around 150W (overclocked cards are higher) to meet their marketing specs, if you increase the power limit the card can pull way more (IIRC spike above 200W) than 150W in certain conditions.

With the power limit at default 0% the card can throttle/stutter/BSOD if the GPU hits the max TDP specified in the card BIOS, without being able to pull additional power to the GPU above 150W-180W, FPS hits a ceiling even if you continue to increase the GPU clocks.

The fact that the GTX 1070 is rated @150W and the GTX 1080 at only 180W (with room to spare in regards to power margins) gives you an idea of just how far behind AMD is compared to nVidia with their performance/power efficiency.

I've built a rig with a Sapphire RX 480 Nitro (factory overclocked), the card crashes in BF1 at times (hard system reset), increasing the power limit all the way to the max solved that issue.

I like the RX 480 despite the high power draw relative to performance, if I were you I'd just get a full refund if possible, then buy a card with different brand on another store (return it if you still have issues) or possibly a cheap GTX 1060 instead.

That's the thing with overclockers. They bait you in with their prices and then slap expensive delivery on top. No other computer sales website has such expensive delivery.
lol, i have a lot **** experience with free postings companys, like last week i order some parts for water cooling loop, and grt only half order, dont get any email about missing order, they just dispatched.. And i wait for it over week.. Other company same this week i order that missing parts what i need, after 3days get email my order ready to ship..lol
So i better go overclockers and pay extra for SUPER FAST DELIVERY, than wait fck know now long.

So when did you start working for Overclockers? Recently or a while ago? ;)
Anecdotally, pretty much all sites are very efficient with delivery when you pay extra. Also some sites free delivery is flawless, not to mention Amazon Prime, Prime Now, etc
Got the 4gb version along with the g4560 chip and very happy but with Doom i cant cap the frame rate in vulkan mode so you get screen tearing :(

Vsync made the game far too laggy and open gl mode while capped at 74fps to allow freesync to work has crashed a fair few times while other games have been fine...Might be just me as I'm new to pc gaming.

Think this is the cheapest I have seen an X99 board for. Maybe mix this with a second hand 5820K as CPU prices are silly since Brexit - I paid £410 for a 5820K + Asus x99A mobo just after the vote and before the price changes.

I would be interested in seeing what a similar priced Ryzen look like

You'd have to be crazy to put money here.
Why?
Is something wrong with x99? I'm considering one but I see so many people saying it's "dead" (although idek why, somebody please explain)

It's really just down to price of mobo/RAM/CPU that push it way north of a well specced Ryzen combo.

For that reason and given the competition from AMD I really see no reason at all to go X99 for a new build.

Honestly I would rather add 150£ and have GTXti - however I'm waiting for Vega as it looks like it will be the same cheap powerful item as in RYZENs case

Do you mean the 1080ti that starts at around £700?


Yes I do, GTX1080s still hold their price around 550£ - mean extreme editions not like this advertised one - so in my opinion it is worth to go for Ti... but it is me... I'm not saying everybody should/would/could :)

I know what you mean, them and Fireworks Direct messed me about for a couple of MONTHS when my Logitech Z506s died after a couple of hours of use so I'll find it hard to trust then again :|
£199.99 now so expired
most of the review FPS I have seen have the AMD 480 ahead of the 1060
Not super hot, but pretty hot.

If you wait until early April, the RX500 series re-spin will be out with rumours of it being more efficient and slight higher clocks.

With recent driver improvements they're on par with a 1060 6Gb, uses more power mind.

They have sorted out the heat problem with a bios upgrade.
This is a good deal but (there's always a but) with the 580 due within the next 2 months, this 480 is a hard sell, especially if the 8GB 580 does indeed come in at rumoured prices of £180 and with lower power and heat as well.
rav4cas
The 8gb Gigabyte model is £80+ more, or a ASUS 8GB for £30 more.
Where's this ASUS GPU?

I only replaced mine about a month or two ago, stunning chip given it's about ten years old!


I know, been runing it now just for over a year swaped/oc'd from e8500, just for day to day basics was no point doing new build. Done some little up's for old timer nd its good to go another decade :D

I tried Xeon equivalent E5440 with GTX 1050 (non Ti card), and E5440 would bottleneck the card in Fallout 4. The Witcher 3, GTA V and so on. So RX 480 is total overkill. IMO GTX 750TI, RX460, maybe GTX 950 is best to pair with that CPU.
Cool chip though, cheapest on ebay at the moment - £35, I recently bought i5 3470 for £50, lol.


Well im with u about overkilling with 480, was thinking not less then 470 or 1050ti. I need mainly for 1080p so lover then that its like wast of money. Had 460 on my mind but would be waste aswell :) will see :)

Where are you looking exactly? I have a GTX970 currently and I paid £175 for it, about 8 months ago, I'm just waiting on Vega. Which overpriced shop are you looking in? the 970 is so old that most online retailers don't even sell it anymore. the performance of a 970 is incredibly lackluster. I'm not sure how you could say it was anything but entry level when a 980 literally outperforms by 50%
Not brand new you didn't mate, it never happened. Why the hell do people make up fantasy stories to fit their arguments?
Oh and when it was current the 970 was the best bang for buck card on the market. Lacklustre certainly wasn't one of the terms used at all in its reviews.
You're actually insane. I have no need to make up a fantasy about a 970. If I was going to make a fantasy argument I'd say that I have a GTX 1080TI, not a card that is about 7 generations old. My GTX 970 cost me £175, bought in about June/July last year, around the same time that the 980Ti's starting really taking over the market.
Also why would a brand new at the time card be considered lacklustre, this was an argument of relevance... The GTX 970 is no longer a relevant card when compared with modern GPU's so as of right now, the card is heavily Lacklustre, losing out to about 6 generations worth of cards.
Grow up.

7 Generations? Wait....what?

It goes 9xx, 9xxTi, 10xx, 10xxTi So I make that 3 generations back myself or 4 generations ago. How the hell you make that 7 generations I will never know.

And the GTX 970 will still eat everything you throw at it today at 1080p so your point is a lot like your counting skills.

Oh and btw, throwing out insults by calling someone insane over a bit of plastic....is,well...insane, really.

Do I jump now or wait to see what the Vega comes in at, I can't help thinking the Vega will be better value. But I have given my lad my 970 for his oculus, so I have no card at the moment and the question is, can I last 2 months. Good price
It will be the usual rubbish from AMD. All hype and no delivery. If any of the Vega cards even come close to a 1080 never mind a 1080 TI I will eat my hat. I got utterly sick of waiting for the next great white hope from AMD years ago.
Every new hardware cycle people get sucked in by them and they just never manage to deliver on the promise. Even the much vaunted Ryzen has failed to live up to the PC gaming press' initial hopes and dreams. 7700K still rules the roost as far as CPU gaming performance goes and that just makes me sad as I thought Ryzen really was a game changer.
Oh and if you get the chance, buy the MSI card over this one every single time.
Ryzen has lived up to expectations and anyone who thinks it hasn't is a fool.
Ryzen 1700 for 329 oc to 4ghz keeps up with a 6900k. Yes the 7700k ipc is higher due to frequency but so what? Anyone in the market for a cpu with 8 cores is doing more than just gaming- and if they aren't then they are a fool with their money.
Your comparing a Ferrari to a tank - you're playing top trumps..... anyone with a brain knows how pointless this is to do.
Yep, you just keep telling yourself that.
Then keep believing its a conspiracy from Intel, Microsoft and all the software companies to keep AMD down by failing to optimise the multi core setup of the AMD chipset as AMD have been blaming everyone and anyone for years.
And if you are talking about gaming sweet spots then its an i5 all the way. Or of course everyone who buys one of these CPUs will be a heavy video editing buff and do a lot of multi core processing as well. I forgot that.
95% of people who will buy one of these CPUs will be buying it for one thing and thats gaming.
And in gaming it does not live up to the initial hype when compared to the Intel processors. The gaming press cannot ALL be wrong can .... here's 10p, go call someone who cares what you think

No idea why cold. Has someone found it cheaper. Seems a respectable price to pay for 32gb.
cause it is only 2400 and people dont want that much ram. good price not the best product
2x16gb sticks - not bad at all :D
It is a great price, no idea why people are voting it cold - heat from me.
I thought it was a pretty good deal considering it's around £50 cheaper than elsewhere the only place I can find it the same or cheaper was Maplins and its out of stock. Not many decent kits of ddr4 32GB you can buy for this price
