there should be more traffic here. PC gaming (and im not even deep in the weeds yet) is superior to console gaming. way better selection of indies 60fps on almost any game

Would it be stupid to buy AMD Ryzen CPU's over Intel?

If it meets your performance and budget needs, no.

Last time I checked (few weeks back now), Intel was still winning in benchmarking comparatively, but Ryzen wasn't bad. Though, some articles I looked over brought to light some concerns when it came to the chips abilities when it came to gaming.

Thanks Frosti. Upon further research the Intel i7 is cheaper and better anyway so really no point in getting the Ryzen 7

It's AMD's latest CPU offering.

AMD's site

It use to be under the name "Zen". Maybe you are familiar with that?

Ah...I think I have heard that name before. To be honest I don't really keep up to date with AMD's offerings to begin with.

I do, but that's mostly because I want them to offer something better so Intel will pick their ass up and actually release a new chip that makes my brain melt when I read about it. portilloYell

Looks good.

Shows how much I've been keeping up with tech. I didn't even know the SSDs that go directly into your board were available for purchase. I bet that'll run really nice for you.

I Want a Gaming PC | Guide (v1.4.3)

Jul 18, '17, 10:54am

I DIDN'T WANT A GAMING PC

Hi all,

I never wanted a gaming PC because I am an apple fanboy. I have my MacBook Pro from 2009, that we added an SSD to it to keep it alive a few years ago, I've had an iPhone since the 3G came out, I'm on my second iPad now, (originally I had an iPad 2, and now an iPad Pro). My friends all have gaming PCs and have told me to build one for a while. I liked the idea of building a PC, because that's fun, but I never liked the idea of using windows for all my other stuff.

A few weeks ago my friend gave me his PC, which we built about 2 years ago. The motherboard was fried so I just bought a new motherboard and we replaced it and got it working. I've now had the PC for about a month, and it's very fun to use. Not just for gaming, but I have used my Adobe Creative Cloud apps on there to work on stuff. I've used it for writing.

I now like the idea of having this PC as my desktop computer at home and maybe upgrading to a newer Macbook or Macbook air in the future. This way I'll have my apple for travel and working out of home, and the PC to use when I am home.

I also have a PS4 and Switch at home, which I also use for gaming, but with this PC I can now play everything, everywhere any time!

So,if you're not sure about building a gaming PC, you should totally do it, it's tons of fun, but I still love my Macbook and apple stuff too...
