It has it cons and that's if you have a close friend and you both want the same game It's not the same You can do the same on Steam too

ArcAndPie

Aimed at families, but rarely used. I have a close friend that I do it with, makes any brand new game go from £50 to £25 each , pretty decent.

Norseg

But that's game sharing, that's aimed at families living together with the same console

ArcAndPie

With game sharing, it probably costs about the same (i.e one console buys it both two consoles can play it, effectivly halving the cost). This works on Ps4 for sure, but idk about xbox, not tried it.

Norseg

Filthy casuals yes (lol) I wouldn't say it costs miles since on consoles the base price maybe cheaper but you end up spending more if you buy a lot of games since you can get games half the price, sometimes a lot less on PC and no £40 a year But consoles get Rockstar games first so both got their cons so get both if you can afford it (y)

not a bad looking keyboard, the only reason I wouldn't call it hot is in a few weeks you will be able to get a lot more keyboard for a little more (Logitech g keyboards on black Friday) Macros, features, software, things like borderlands integrated keyboard lighting and smartphone map app type stuff. the Logitech g keyboards win for gaming. can't vote it cold either.

I use a red switch keyboard in an open plan office, no problem. I brought in my blue switch keyboard for a day on 1st April and typed like a maniac all day, everybody in the office wanted to kill me.

fiqqer

It depends how you type. An experienced touch typist will generate little noise, although the keys make a noise on the way up and the way down. Red are the quietest as they provide no feedback sound, brown are designed to provide a little noticeable feedback, either with a feint click or a slight bump when the actuation point is reached - the point when the letter appears on the screen. If you are heavy handed they will be noisy whichever keyboard you use. Blue will be clicky however light you type.

CBeems

I have browns. They do make enough sound to stand out. If you are listening to music or otherwise giving yours ears to something else then you won't notice. My partner watches TV and even sleeps in the same room I'm using the keyboard in.

It's hard to know how well or poorly the 2070's will work in the medium term. Yes the list for DLSS is small. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-rtx-dlss-new-games-september-2018/ Yes the 1k series can do raw crunches better than the 2k series, the industry is starting to see (much like Transmetta, VIA, PhysX, and other makers of old) that simply increasing the die is not going to be the way forward. I am not sure the move to add both Ray Tracing and DNN in the same initial consumer product was a good idea, both have their own merits and if one idea tanks then the other idea is likely going to be pulled down by the partner failing. Personally I LOVE the fact that these ideas are getting rolled in, but I would have much rather seen it done via some sort of chiplet/interposer redesign. The big question is not what's better, but IF the DLSS and RT tech will be adopted widely enough for players to see the benefits. If you require AA now, then DLSS will eventually replace it BUT there is nothing to say that the current tech DLSS will be what replaces it, nor that It will be adopted. If you swap cards every couple of years then go for the 1k series, My video card is from 2009 (ugh) but making the swap now and sitting on a card for 8 years could mean not going for the 2k series was a bad move (forcing a upgrade). Basically we are in the start of the Chicken and Egg (RTX+DLSS) debate with the risk of people sticking with beef (More Cores!).

Paul_93R

Dunno why people are slamming the 2070 on here and YouTube. Apart from the £400 gigabyte blower, which is apparently loud, these 2070s seen to be the same price as the 1080. Yes you can get a second hand ti for 50 quid more but most things in life are cheaper second hand. Ok the 2080ti is stupid money but these 2070s seem decent value and more than stack up against the 1080.

cf15

Of course it can be compared, are any ray tracing games, let only dlls enabled games available yet?. DLSS is just fake 4k using the deep learning cores. Similar to PS4 pro checkboard , Xbox X etc. Rtx 1070 (106) matches a gtx 1080 and some more with current games. Ray tracing needs a rtx 2080ti (104 ) to shine at 1080p @60fps and 4k @60fps possibly (if DLSS is enabled and works). I doubt ray tracing enabled games on rtx 2080/70 will hit 60fps at 4k, prob 2160p/1080p at 60fps respectively with DLSS enabled. Hope ray tracing/DLSS doesn't end up like hair works

robodan918

Wait until 7nm in 2019 Both AMD and NVidia will release something in Q2. AMD has announced that they will, and NVidia always tries to spoil their party. AMD Vega 7nm (no, NAVI isn't here yet) will be announced that will be the best power-to-performance ratio in the mid-high end (but will overclock well), and either NVidia announces a GTX 2090/TI on 12nm that becomes the new performance king, or less likely 7nm. I called the 2000 series launch as a flop, since the 10 series was still going strong, AMD hadn't released anything competitive since Vega (and that wasn't that big a hit), and NVidia had a backlog of 300,000(reported returns from AIB partners)-1million (by some estimates) 10-series GPUs to sell. The pricing of the 20 series and the fact that NVidia is still actively selling the 10 series until at least January reflects that.

It is a matter of units, it's simply gigabytes vs gibibytes. The MBR takes 512 bytes, you probably meant MFT, though the reserved space of that on a NTFS partition isn't subtracted from the free space available.

dheydl

An old one. Not in any of the retina MacBook Pros.

prq

It's not a matter of units, it's the way Windows formats a drive and saves a chunk of space for a few things like MBR etc. Back in the day, a "1 Mb floppy" would only have 720kb available after formatted on a PC but 880k when formatted on a Commodore Amiga. All OSs are different in this regard.

thecount

Any idea if I can use this in a MacBook Pro?

roblerner

For anyone else wanting to check what the usable capacity of a drive will be you need to convert GB (gigabyte) that the manufacturer uses into GiB (gibibytes) that windows reports. Divide by 1.074 to do this. Nobody is stealing your space or shortchanging you - windows and HDD makers just use different units.

Let me start by saying that you are fundamentally correct, there is no "perfectly safe" HW/SW - only bugs and exploits that haven't been yet found. Having said that, there are issues and issues. Those "terrifying" AMDFlaws are exploits that required unsigned bios reflashes and/or full local admin right to the box to be triggered. Worrying about them is akin to worrying that a crim can copy your locks and enter in your home again whenever he wants, after you let them in unsupervised and gave them the master key. If you are genuinely concerned about them, do some extra research, be glad that a resolution path is in place and please don't let stock manipulators win by keep on spreading FUDs that have been extensively debunked. Anyway, there are degrees of unsafeness, and as far as it is known, amd has the "safest" products right now, which hardly means anything for most end users, as there are effective mitigation strategies around the meaningful exploits.

Horrorwood

CTS labs LOL You can not be serious? The chip flaws that require you to have root/admin access to the pc... Or my favourite one, the one where you need a modded bios to exploit it. Yes they needed fixing. No it's normal to give a manufacturer 1 day notice of your findings. Spectre and meltdown were also found by an "outside source" and given a very advance notice before the findings were made public.

vmistery

Yea AMD are definitely behind Nvidia at the moment in GPUs. I’ve always been quite surprised about that considering AMD are in every console for several years now! The reason I took your comment the wrong way was just because it sounded like you were saying AMD had been negligent in not releasing the info on their issues after only knowing about it 3 days.

MysticalUndies

I'm am definitely not anti AMD. I wanted to correct the person who thought Amd didn't have any security issues as this is spreading misinformation and isn't correct because they all have their own issues. I litterally put about 2 sentances and linked articles. I didn't bad mouth the chip and say anything about it being inferior to other brands. I'm in no way brand faithful. I buy whatever suits my needs most and switch between brands when needed. These ryzen chips are great value for money and do a lot of things better and for less money than the Intel chips do. I've switched between the red and blue team many times in the past until it got a bit one sided over the last 7 years or so. It's great now there's competition like you said. They just need to bring that to the gpu sector now to balance that market as that's definately in Nvidias favour.

vmistery

Not really, you just came across as anti AMD. I agree they all have vulns. I just get miffed when people are not balanced which is how I interpreted your comments. Fact is we need competition in the market so the anti AMD brigade frustrates me.

kjfrazer

It all depends on what you want to play; personally I'm happy with Football Manager, Civ IV, Company of Heroes, and some tycoon game. My only "complaint" on this build is the lack of an SSD, even just for the operating system. The difference in speed between a mechanical and solid drive really is chalk and cheese. Those LED lights are unnecessary for my liking, and I wouldn't need an optical drive. Take those out and give me an SSD, for around £600, and this would be a very good deal indeed.

Beehj84

Wise choice. I wouldn't buy a quad core i5 or CL i3 now personally. They're starting to show their cracks in the most demanding titles with CPU usage pegged at nearly 100%, especially the locked and lower clocked ones. Still probably fine for like 1080p 60hz and medium/high rigs, but anything more enthusiast warrants a better CPU especially for longevity. The list of games which definitively benefit from more than 4cores/threads grows all the time, and is undoubtedly the immediate trajectory for new games now. The 8400 is a fantastic buy currently. If you've no interest in tweaking and overclocking, then the cheapest Z370 board and an 8400 is probably the best recommendation.

BIGPHIL69

Yeah I've gone with the custom build after hearing good things about the 8400 thanks.

Nobody is stopping you pairing a £90 board with a £310 CPU designed for overclocking but it's hardly the best pairing. Ideally you want a decent Z370 chipset if you plan on overclocking an 8700k just a little bit. Even if you aren't aiming at max overclocking you are far more likely to have a stable, long term guaranteed overclock with lower voltage required and better vdroop characteristics on the nicer boards. I'm not talking about £200+ boards here. £130-£140 for a well featured Z370 board will get something sufficiently better than a £90-£100 budget board to make it worth the extra cash with such a high end CPU.

Seanspeed

I dont really agree with this. These wont all be 'super budget' or anything. Many of them will offer sufficient overclocking ability to get some decent extra performance. You only need to spend the big bucks if you're trying to really push the CPU closer to its limits. As somebody who isn't concerned with MAX overclocking or whatever, I find the top boards a massive waste of money when I can get overclocking performance I'm quite happy with for much less.

vulcanproject

Intel launched with the high end most expensive Z370 boards, soon to launch the mid and lower end models. H370, B360 and H310. Saying that it's not exactly an ideal pairing for a £310 i7 8700k on a budget board that has average VRM performance or can't support the full range of overclocking options. Really the cheaper boards will be perfect for the locked Coffee Lake models. A budget £80 board + a £100 i3 8100 would be a top cheap gaming combo.

antdoros

Currently there are Z370 motherboards which have most of the functionality and are ment for overclocking. As to the B350 motherboard they are budget boards and tend to have a few of the overclocking functionality missing and some features. Most of all B350 boards are cheaper.

Albeit Amazon are out of stock. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/amd-yd180xbcaewof-ryzen-7-1800x-8-core-36-ghz-am4-95w-processor-26497-amazon-2879195 You can also buy in stock from Aria for under £270 including postage. Which is better than this deal. Try using this site. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/7qyxFT/amd-ryzen-7-1800x-36ghz-8-core-processor-yd180xbcaewof Also try pricespy.co.uk Seems to me you posted a price you thought was good. Always wise to do checks before you post on here! As this is £15-20 cheaper elsewhere before you even factor in cashback sites. Also when you search on here Idealo comes up at top of screen at times. Even that shows the Amazon Price much cheaper. Cold for me.

There was a 30% price drop on this CPU last week, so it should get cheaper in the coming days...

FYI the default clock speed of the 1800X is 3.6Ghz although it can turbo to 4Ghz It's also cheaper from Amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-YD180XBCAEWOF-8-Core-Desktop-Processor/dp/B06W9JXK4G

Most pre-builds are a rip-off, but some insist on getting them. I think this is OK for the price. Seems to come with a good 3 year warranty. The CPU is tier 2. The GPU is a good… Read more

You are correct. The FX-8320 does bottleneck a GTX1060 3GB. Two of my friends own this combo and we tested in 5 games we play together. Best example: GW2, max settings, town area (a lot of players). FX-8320=20fps, and my i7-4790K=54fps. Same location in games, same settings, same gpu. You can't even call this cpu a gaming cpu.

FX-8320 is worse than a Pentium G4560. Pass.

Feel bad with some of it lol. Picked up a Benq 23" LED 1080p monitor for a tenner off a guy on facebook. Noones interested in monitors after laptops and tablets took over, always tons of them for sale for buttons

This is very obviously a PC built from old stock with a 1060 shoved in, I'm a fan of AMD FX chips - at the right price, but this isn't it. My son's FX 8320 is already a bottleneck for the 280x he has in some games, I doubt the 1060 in this will be able to reach its full performance in running on such an old chip - remember that the FX 8300 in this "new" PC was manufactured 5-6 years ago! If you must have a prebuilt wait for the right deal with a Ryzen or recent Intel CPU, or ask around friends and family to see if anyone can help you with building one from scratch.

i3 8100, windforce 1060 3gb, 8gb 2400mhz ddr4, better case, psu and hdd for £586. Have to build it yourself and wait for parts, but should be a lot better system, low end pcs are rubbish to buy anyway, need to be upgraded soon and the step up to better parts is quite cheap in retrospect.
