Super 2060 should do the job, assuming it's a 1080p monitor.

Do you have any other monitor to try? It wouldn't surprise me with an old monitor and using a converter that there might be an issue with the monitor.

Do you have a television with a HDMI input that you could try?

This might be a silly thing, but you haven't plugged the cable into the motherboard? I know you said you disabled the iGPU in the bios, but you could have accidentally left it in the motherboard and not moved it to the graphics card. Does the graphics card have it's internal power connectors in properly?

Reset it back to default on that firestorm app then uninstall it.

Use msi afterburner instead.

In your situation I'd go cablemods and make sure you get a very long CPU power and 24 pin cable.

Super 2060, Super 2070, Super 2080.

The super 2060 is about as powerful as a regular 2070, super 2070 is about as good as a regular 2080. The Super 2080 will be a midpoint between a 2080 and a 2080 TI. Super 2080 looks like launching at the end of this month.

There's no confirmation that they will be doing a Super 2080 TI. But I wouldn't put it past Nvidia if their next-gen series isn't going to be out until mid-way through 2020 or even 2021.

I wouldn't say "replacing", I'd say "being added to the product stack". The regular 2070 & 2080 will still be around after the Super versions launch they will just get discounted to move units until they are out of stock.

2080 Super out on July 23rd apparently.

2080 TI Super will probably depend on how Nvidia think Ampere is going, and if they want a new halo product to fill the year long time gap between the Super launch and the 7nm Ampere generation which is rumoured to launch mid-2020 at the earliest. Maybe we'll get a Keanu Reeves Super RTX 2080 TI in late 2019/early 2020 to push cards for the Cyberpunk 2077 in April launch which is obviously the biggest hyped game in a long time, and once that is done they will move on to the 7nm series.

Unless you need a high end card then wait until the new AMD card embargo drops (this weekend i think) regardless of what you want to do and reputable reviewers can compare them directly. It's looking like the 2070 Super is going to be a sweet spot for performance while AMD will be lesser performance but lower pricing.

If you do want a high end card then you can get a 2080 TI comfortable in the knowledge that nothing but a Titan is getting near it for a while. The 2080 Super isn't going to match it for sure, and a 2080 TI Super isn't likely to be that much of an improvement.

Get two Noctua Redux NF-P14S 1500 PWM fans for the front.

Move the existing 120mm to the top and buy a NF-S12B redux-1200 PWM to go alongside it.

Note this won't be the best looking thing so if you're worried about aesthetics or want to match RGB colourings then you will need to go another direction.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "best keyboard and mouse for competitive gaming?"

Most pros use Zowie or Logitech mice. The most common are Zowie EC2-A and newer EC2-B, and Logitech with their G Pro Wireless being heavily favoured, with the G403, G703, G903 also being used.

The G Pro Wireless and the G903 are both horrendously expensive (frankly, any good peripherals are horrendously expensive here in AU/NZ, especially if they are wireless) and would probably be beyond your $200 limit. You could probably get a G903 from Amazon US for maybe 175 NZD with shipping.

That said, I have a G903 (which was an RMA for a busted G900) and the powerplay mat and believe it's one of the best mouse ever made. A lot of people also say that about the G Pro.

The Glorious Model 0 is from a new company and still has teething problems and it probably has poor support around AU/NZ so I wouldn't risk it.

I would suggest the G703 which you can get from Mightyape for $138 NZD. If you're new to PC you probably won't even be able to appreciate a $200+ mouse anyway for a while.

Keyboard I'd pick something with Cherry MX Red switches like a Corsair K68 (although that's not RGB) and only has Red lightning or Strafe.

Maybe this for a Ducky KB. $189 which is well below Corsair boards. https://www.playtech.co.nz/peripherals/keyboard-mouse/ducky-one-2-double-shot-pbt-mechanical-keyboard-cherry-red-switch-blue-led.html

You could get the Ducky & K703 for $316 plus shipping. Which is well below your overall budget of $450 to $480.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Best Case for an i9-9900k Gaming PC, some ideas but more welcome!"

  • 2 months ago
  • 2 points

I'm actually looking at doing a final upgrade when I get a new GPU around the time Cyberpunk 2077 comes out, where I get a new CPU Cooler for my 9900k (I have an oldish Nepton) and case with it. I'd been looking at getting that exact GPU as well.

If I were buying now I be getting an EVGA CLC 280 for a CPU cooler and a Fractal Meshify S2 for a case with the CPU on the front intakes and the AIO exhausting up top.

Other suggestions. That PSU is overkill. A Prime 850W will be more than enough and saves $65 or so. Even with heavy overclocking a 9990k + 2080ti system will hardly draw more than 650w.

I know it's a lot of extra cash so you might not want to do it, I would replace your mouse & mousepad with the Logitech G903 and Powerplay mousepad. It's such a quality of life improvement to leave wired behind AND leave needing to connect the mouse to a wire for charging behind.

I'd ditch the headset and get a good set of headphones like the Audio Technica ATH-AD900X (or drop down a level to the ATH-AD 700X which is almost as good but almost half the price) and get a stand alone mic. You'll save $100 with that.

Lastly, that monitor is good, but the Acer Predator X34P is a lot better. ISP panel, GSync, 3440x1440p res at 120hz for not a great deal more right now. You won't miss the 45frames over the top of 120 but I guarantee you will massively appreciate the panel quality and resolution. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-X34-Pbmiphzx-UltraWide-Technology/dp/B079FV8S5M/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Acer+-+Predator+X34P&qid=1558862992&s=gateway&sr=8-3

Do you have a reason for wanting to upgrade? What FPS are you getting now and do you consider it acceptable? Is it impacting your gameplay?

And if it's not acceptable, are you decreasing graphics settings to try and get a higher FPS?

If you just want a second portrait monitor I'd go with something basic like a BenQ BL2205PT 21.5".

I have their BL2405 but I think 24" in portrait is too much.

What do you have now?

It really should feel that hard at all, it's just a basic mechanism, it's not going to bear major weight. I'd only loosely tighten it.

If your PC can handle mounting for the cooler I would go with the AORUS 2080 Ti XTREME WATERFORCE.

I'm planning a GPU upgrade for Cyberpunk 2077 from a pair of 980TI's in SLI with this and a new case like a Meshify C or S2 and EVGA CLC 280 cooler for my 9900k.

You bought a 2080ti without knowing why it has two power connectors?

To work properly you need to connect both power cables.

When you only have one cable it can't perform at specifications.

When you use both cables it can run at full speed, which is why it was hotter.

It definitely fits 3x120mm fans in the front, I assume the 140mms only fit 2 because the PSU shroud prevents a 3rd 140mm.

9990k.

If you don't want to go full overkill, then the 9700k will be practically within a few percentage points of the 9900k without being costly.

Either of those chips you want a high tier Z390 board to go along with it.
