What is this for?

by rproffitt Moderator In reply to pc hardware confirmation

For me I check to see if the CPU is on the motherboard's compaibility list and then we know PCIe cards work in PCIe slots so there's little to check here.

RAM can be on the motherboard's QVL (another list) and since this is an i9, I would not buy RAM that was not on the list.

I'd rather see you build something at https://pcmasterrace.org/builds

Re: configuration

by Kees_B Moderator In reply to pc hardware confirmation

It would really help if you could present your hardware in a list, like:
- component 1
- component 2
and so on.

If you use that ssd for the OS/apps/games it won't take many games before you run out of space.

Consider a smaller ssd for just the OS/apps and getting a big hdd for games.

My son learned today (or rather TIL!)

by rproffitt Moderator In reply to Thought

I told my son that the delays he was seeing in game was due to the HDD.

Just a few days ago we swapped out the HDD for a 1TB SSD (SATA) and with the OS and such on the M.2 SSD and the bulk drive now being a SSD his game is now what would you say? Ripping fast.

For example when he loaded into the common space where there were some 100 other players, the HDD load time was about 20 seconds. Now it's about 1 to 2 seconds.

Yes, I thinks that's a bad design decision by the game's code makers but hey, the 1TB SATA SSD was just under 99USD and for gamers, well, there it is.

All ssd is the way to go

by BOB.B In reply to My son learned today (or ...

The OP is going to spend 90 bucks on that 500GB unit and I suspect it will fill quickly.

Perhaps a better way to go is to drop that back to a 250GB unit.....save 40 bucks.

Take the 40 bucks and apply it to a second big ssd just for game storage.

If the wallet is nice and fat just go with a single whopper ssd for everything.
