Cheers mate, guess u could say im sydney but im a few hours south
Alright I'm in Melbourne (near enough) so I'll let a Sydneysider recommend some other shops.
Try PC Case Gear, they have systems from mild to wild lol
Looks like cards availability is increasing and are coming back down in price, RX580 Gaming cards look good value.
I just got this one on shopping express ebay site at 20% off... was a $245 savings!
Wait till tomorrow and see if you can get a bargain on amazon Australia
Hello everyone. Just for something different, here's my cheap build for older Sim Racers. Nothing too fancy:
CPU: Intel Xeon x5460 (with adapter sticker to work in a LGA775 motherboard)
RAM: 8GB DDR2 (4X 2GB)
GPU: ASUS Strix GTX950 2GB
Motherboard: ASUS P5-Ne SLI (with modified CPU socket and BIOS to work with LGA771 Xeon CPU)
HDD: 1TB Seagate
Runs Assetto Corsa at an average of 70+ FPS, 1080p everything maxxed out during online races . Best part is it cost less than the cost of a new Nvidia GTX1050Ti on it's own. Anyone else got what could be considered a "Scrapyard Wars" style PC build?
Where is that from? Sounds good
All of the used parts were from both eBay and Trade Me since I'm based in NZ. 771 to 775 mod instructions are here:
Total cost including a Cooler Master case was around NZ$260. Just got lucky with prices on the bigger parts.
haha... Kudos on the MB hack to do cpu adapter fix... nice to see this sort of stuff is still going on...
I might have to sell my recent build and get some money back! Im barely getting those figures
What's in your build? Almost moved to a EVGA x58 SLI board I got for free with a 6 core Xeon X5680 (Need to run Virtual Machines too). So far the board doesn't work so considering at least a Ryzen 5 1600 build.
Hey guys looking to get into assetto corsa on Pc and have about 1000 to spend . Was looking at this and possibly grabbing a GTX1060 6 gb with it. Does anyone know if it would run? What kind of resolution
I'd try to get an i5 CPU, but with a single 24" should run fine at 1080p with a 1060
The nice thing about AC on PC is you can drop eye candy like detail, shadow and smoke to keep fps at respectable levels.
I5 is extra 200 would sort of difference would it get? Sorry I don't know to much.
Check rooz site sponsor websites... they have specials for new systems
Will check when I get home
Google cpu benchmarks and check ur cpu score. Obv higher the better, but can also gauge bang for buck. Also gpu will do a lot of the heavy lifting and IMO should be where your money is spent. If your in vic, check pccasegear and in qld, umart for components. My 2c
Bloke not to far from me is selling his gaming setup and i was wondering if these specs are good enough for me to run VR.
Intel Core i5 4590 @3.30GHz
Haswell 22rim Technology
8.00GB Duel-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHz (11-11-11-28)
MSI B85-G43 Gaming (MS-7816) (socket 0 )
LG Full HD ( 1920x1080@60hz )
LG Full HD ( 1920x1080@60hz )
4095 MB Nvidia Gforce GTX 970 (gigabyte)
55GB KINGSTON SV300s37a60g(ssd)
I think it'll be right on the minimum specs side... but then u can run this compatibility checker to test.
thank you. If i was to buy this for $ 700 then make some upgrades would that be better money wise than buying new you think.
