  1. Nah, I've been gradually getting better at it. Slower than I'd like, but I'm getting there. The difference between 1 boss cell and 0 boss cells is night and day. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't having fun with one cell, despite getting my ass kicked. I managed to get to the end boss once, so I'll just keep trying, heh. Doing a run with no cells isn't challenging anymore, the fun factor is much lower, haha. Although I cannot imaging attempting this game with 4 cells, or wtv the max is.
  2. Alright, thanks for all the help! I ended up buying the following: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X CPU Cooler: Corsair H80i v2 70.69 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Mobo: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS ATX AM4 Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Storage: ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
  3. Heh I saw that video. I was going to get the Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI), but it' s no longer in stock at the price I wanted, so I'm going with the non-wifi version.
  4. Alright, I'm about to pull the trigger on these parts, but I noticed the 3800x is only like $10 more than the 3700x. Any reason not to get the 3800X? @cusideabelincoln @Spork3245 @Massdriver
  5. Apparently the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB 66.7 CFM is not compatible with my Antec twelve hundred v3. Not sure why, but I know jack shit about cooler compatibility. Can you recommend me one that is compatible with the Antec twelve hundred v3 and still good enough to allow a 3700X to be OCed? edit: My current cooler (Corsair a70) isn't compatible with the 3700X nor the mobo I picked.
  6. Alright, so far this is what I'm going with: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB 66.7 CFM Mobo: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Storage: ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive Video Card: Keeping my old 980 ti Case: Keeping my old Antec twelve hundred PSU: Keeping my old EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 OS: Windows 10 I'm still concerned about the RAM clearance. The sticks seem a bit tall so I may look for something shorter. Also, is there any reason to go for 32 GB right now? Do any games actually benefit from that much RAM? @cusideabelincoln @Spork3245 @Massdriver
  7. By "your motherboard", you are referring specifically to the Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4? The non Wifi version is $200 at Newegg, and some comments/reviews for the ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 ATX AM4 Motherboard have me a little concerned. Oops, meant to edit that last message. Oh well.
  8. XPG SX8200 Pro is $160, while the Sabrent Rocket is $170. This will be a boot drive. Shall I get the XPG SX8200 Pro? I have a question regarding the G.Skill Ripjaws V. The height wouldn't be an issue for a CPU cooler? My current ram is short, but if it were 1 cm taller it wouldn't fit because of my cpu cooler, lol. I also have a question regarding the liquid cpu cooler. Does it require any maintenance? I typically stop maintaining the inside of my PC after a few months. I've opened up my current PC like twice in the last 4 years... Fortunately it hasn't gathered that much dust.
  9. Looking at the different prices listed pcpartpicker, I was wondering why they weren't showing NCIX.... I just discovered they went bankrupt, then had a data breach.
  10. I currently have an EVGA supernova 750 G2, or something. Haven't had any issues with it so far. Safe to stick with it?
  11. I have an OCed 980 ti. I won't upgrade that right now. Ooh, I'll check that site out a bit more tomorrow.
  12. My i5 2500k has served me well, but I think it's time to finally upgrade to something newer. And since I'm changing my CPU, that means I'll also need a new motherboard... which means new RAM. While I'm at it, I figured I'll finally switch to Windows 10 (Don't judge me) and get an SSD while I'm at it. I haven't really been keeping up with the latest PC components, so I'm going to need help choosing some. Basically I'm looking for recommendations on: a CPU (and cooler so I can OC it safely) Mobo RAM 1TB SSD possibly a new PSU? I think my current one is 850W. Anything else I'm forgetting I'm hoping to keep the cost around $1000 CAD, but I have some wiggle room. I'm Canadian eh, so any store I buy from will likely be the Canadian version, or at least offer shipping to Canada (without absurd shipping fees). Please and thank you! edit: I have an OCed 980 ti. I won't upgrade my graphics card right now.
