yeah, back in stovk so thought i would have a look around and see what else there is. G7 is used but for £330 so, thats kinda what i was asking to see what else you can get for another £100 but yeah i guess to beat it u need to find another bargain.
The difference is that the Lenovo was a bargain. Find another monitor with those specs at that price is hard- I believe there was a £200 deal as well for that monitor
Rtings have it down as a good monitor https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/msi/optix-g273qf
Any reason why its £80 more (£220 to £300) then this https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-g27q-27-inch-qhd-ips-gaming-led-monitor-3743031 https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/4e6b1aa211 i think both have 1ms response time (not that it means anything cause of overshoot and image quality tanking?) so whats the difference? only downside to this one seems to be the 260mm footprint, MSI has 230mm as comparison
I'm looking for a main monitor for gaming, no more than £300 and 2560x1440, is this actually decent as I have zero clue about this kinda stuff? lol
I managed to snag some Unicorn dust for 50p, genuine as well, was only a one time offer though, but I know the contact I got it from so maybe a chance. Joking, a good deal if you got it but just shows the blind voting on HUKD, see, vote, then read.
Checked all 3 asda's in Telford, they had it but 100£+, i guess that was the only one :)
well exactly 1 person has got this deal but good job to them, bet asda has never seen such interest in their PC monitors section
2018 older MB restricted rom space for upgrades I do not think it does support resizable bar (not mentioned on the bios page) plus so many other things which you find on any x470/B450 build in 2019 as well as having larger rom bios which can support a lot more. Single rank ram would work better on 4 slots for the series 5000 cpu's or dual/single on 2 slots
I own the B350M and I gotta say you can't really complain about em not really.... On mine the only real issue I have is the M. 2 slot is right under the graphics card so a bit concerned about heat.... I paid a lot more money than this over 3 years ago... this is a bargain
if you can stretch another £20 it may be worth getting an x570
And the ability to accommodate wider GPU's.
Removed my comment as it was an issue fixed with zen 2 onwards. Zen and zen plus, which is what I have, are frequency limited with 4 versus 2 banks used. Likelihood of anyone using those processors now is pretty small.
I think this is the same as folks posting 3090s for £3K.. The market is slowing. Go and look at Ebay 'Buy now' prices for 3060 (new) They start at £580 - the market is in flux. I see the scalpers moving on soon to new scam AND crypto market has collapsed means more for retail channels I am expiring this now, proud of my minus 281 score
I think it'll take longer than this. There are still 1660 Supers being sold for around £500
Based on the curve slowly deflecting downward - " I formally predict that 3060 prices will hit MSRP +-£50. I stake my whining GTX960 4gh on it"
Scan or scan? ;)
Man, and I thought getting stung an extra £30 for a crappy shirt and baseball cap that I didn't want with my PS5 was bad.
Yes I found out earlier when I was buying things I wanted - sometimes it’s once, sometimes as many as 6 redemptions. Just borrow a friend’s account if you need more uses.
ah, didnt know it was 3 uses.
Yes I get that but you can get it now and in stock, CCL is in stock with no code and has Quidco - that’s what Tacavas posted earlier. Why wait on pre-order? I don’t know, but when I order hardware, I want it as soon as possible. Amazon was £66.99 earlier so must have price matched. The eBay code is 3 uses and you can use other accounts too to get more.
Dispatch sometimes comes much earlier than it says and some may not mind the wait. Can then use code for something else.. Its just an option.
CCL is normal delivery and the same price so there are lots of options. Don’t know why you’d want to wait weeks for shipping when you don’t have to. Ebuyer on eBay will have the proper returns policy.
Mine needed flashing from Scan. Just bought it. Easy to do.
already ordered.. but I did see it at ebuyer.com for same price but no free shipping. ccl had free shipping
Thanks - I bought this board anyway. It can't be more fussy than what I have now and I wish I had just gone with my gut in the first place... the annoying thing is my system was fine before I swapped the motherboard out, I just wanted a better quality board. I'm not overclocking anything, I need stability above all else. For anyone considering this - you can get it from Ebuyer Express on eBay for £58.41 with code - Nectar points and Quidco on top: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293228698999?hash=item4445cadd77:g:IMYAAOSwuwFdfK30
I think the only thing that happened once was I turned game mode on in bios and it wouldn't boot because it tried to apply too high an overclock. Otherwise perfect. XMP profile for my RAM applied perfectly too (Trident Z 3200Mhz).
Good to know - I am buying this as @sarden84 was helping me out with my other board (MSI B550M Pro-VDH WiFi) but tons of weird issues like unexpected reboots whereas none reported with the Mortar Max so I think this is the obvious choice, it's been a firm favourite since it launched - very few people have complaints about it, whereas I've seen Reddit is all complaints about the Pro-VDH for some reason!
It's not a great price, but given the GPU shortage, I'd say it's alright. I remember before the first lockdown 970's were going for were £90, mad really.
I bought one for 110 and sold it for 140, 155 is reasonable.
Just bought an Asus one for £155. Someone tell me please that was an OK price. I feel bad I spent this much money but really needed a graphics card. 4 years ago bough the exact card for £120 but gave up on me
Yeah, I sold my 7-year-old gtx970 G1 card for £200.
Hmm, never had this board. Definitely something to look out for. Thanks for the heads up.
I have this board with a 5800x and it has awful power delivery issues, whea hardware errors often when under load so wouldn't recommend. Changing the LLC helped with my stability issues but it isn't a perfect fix.
Its a really good motherboard for the price, however, if your planning to go with a beefy card like a rtx, id say a 3600x or maybe a 5600x.
I'm planning to put this together with a 4650g. Is it a sensible decision? I'm planning to add gpu next year.
Ideally I'd like something I can stick my GTX 1050 into, it's in the Shuttle with its fan off just using the a standard Al heatsink with a bit of blower action shoving air over the front of the card and it seems to laugh it off 8)
Consider the Asrock desk mini x300 Includes: motherboard, case, power supply (external), and cpu fan (though recommend swapping that out for a low profile noctua fan)... all in at ~ £150... smaller footprint than itx , decent airflow in case too. CCL, £138.45 LINK Or slightly more on Amazon at £144.57 LINK You will need to pair this with an APU which can be a bit pricey right now/hard to get hold of 3200g 3400g 4650g 4750g 5700g — I haven’t checked if this is supported Plus M.2 drive such as LINK Plus Laptop RAM, ideally 16GB 3200+ LINK
That's great, hope you find what you need!
I'm going to look into it for sure
It might be worth it I think, even getting a 3200g would be a big difference in efficiency plus m2, more data ports etc
