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.
