Re: Computer builders -- whats the norm these days

they had 5600x in stock at 299 not long ago. now out of stock and they raised prices by 10% or to 440fr if you take the jacob price.

prices are a joke right now due to supply/demand mismatch. i decided to sit things out for a year until supply catches up to demand.

The price you are looking at isn't Digitec, it is JacobDE. Unfortunately Digitec now allow 3rd parties to advertise on their site as though it is fricken Ebay, so you have to make sure that you click the Digitec price to see the regular cost.

JacobDE are really taking the **** with their scalper prices and people are complaining about them a lot.

Yes, I had noticed after the initial shock I only buy things directly from Digitec, return of defective goods becomes a headache with most other suppliers.

Ironically, a month ago they received a big batch of the 5950's which were in stock for a couple of weeks so you missed a good chance there.
Yes I saw, but I was in some deep dark cloud shit until yesterday, so building PC was last thing on my mind Dark clouds are lifting, so I am back on the horse. Next batch in CHF8xx range I am ordering! (Btw MSRP is CHF800).


The same supply/demand, price gouging situation with the GeForce GPUs too!

get a case without a window and forget what it looks like inside
haha, it may work. But if the cables are blocking the air flow, the fans need to spin faster to cool the i7 (100W max) and the graphics card (500W max) while gaming. Of course, 600W is the max rate, but I bet half of it is being generated inside that box and needs to be taken out......or accept the feet warmer/secondary room heater is a bit noisy

Re: Computer builders -- whats the norm these days

My greatest investment lately, not in terms of upgrading to new SSD sizes, but Xystec Festplatten-Adapter SATA auf USB2.0 for 2.5” HDD. I can connect external SSD’s not used anymore e.g. 100GB, 500GB and use them for backups.

Remember, given reasonable I(x) processor and SSD, the most important memory in laptops is RAM that defines its speed.

Re: Computer builders -- whats the norm these days

I use one of these docks, very handy. No need to open the PC case to install/backup HDs!

Lets not even talk about the GPU situation, I'll start to lose the plot and enter full-on nerd rage...

I have 2x RTX 3080 10GB on order (hedging my best on which arrives first) but neither look in any danger of arriving in stock. I think March or April is when we will see more. The AMD 6800XT is no better.

The entire high-end component industry is ****ed at the moment and scalpers (people who grab stock then charge silly money) are ruthlessly taking advantage of it. I've never known anything like these disastrous launches in all my years and the sad thing is that this may happen next time too.

Blame the bitcoin people, they're increasing the demand of GPUs while leaving us without playing at a decent frame rate

Looks sweet. That's the case I suggested, right... the 500DX?

The BeQuiet base 500 it is.. It's pretty nice with sound deadening panels and filters etc, loads of space and no flashy lights. It's near silent even under load.

It was a little tricky with my big CPU cooler but no real drama.. I ended up mounting that on the board first and attaching most connections before screwing the board down, with some difficulty on the top fixings, needed a very long screw driver.

Had the whole thing stripped down and cleaned and reassembled in a couple of hours max.

And now is the time to overclock the 6700k since you've got such a beefy cooler. 4.5Ghz should be easy. Or more if you want to delid the cpu and properly geek out

Re: Computer builders -- whats the norm these days

Hah! Even decent 1000W+ power supplies are completely out of stock!!!!
Looks like it will be mid-year before GPU/CPU/PSU/MOBO supplies "might" stabilize

This has become very apparent after my gpu bricked itself at the start of the week. I managed to grab a decent RTX 3070 at a fair price...back in the UK. So I got it delivered to my mum and itíll be picked up by FedEx on Monday.

I am now keeping an eye on Caseking.de for graphics cards as they have way better stock than CH, don't charge VAT and shipping here is only 11EUR https://www.caseking.de/en

What do you call a fair price and where from?

Re: Computer builders -- whats the norm these days

I only have two games installed, Fortnite and Unreal Tournament .. I'm not a gamer, just a little occasional distraction from work ..
According to the epic games GUI i'm getting 60-70 fps in Fortnite, it doesn't tell about UT.. They run on system chosen settings on my 27in display ..

To me it seems perfect on my old Radeon RX 580.. No lag, no distortion, game loads in a couple of seconds.. I just don't imagine how it would play better.

Would I actually SEE a difference after spending a couple of grand on a new GPU? Or is it really mostly just in the numbers?

Sorry John we have taken over your thread and the GPU talk obviously wasn't aimed at you. We are just discussing our gaming needs and how they aren't being met by the current hardware supply situation.

£599 for an EVGA FTW3 from Scan. Had to use chat on their website as they werenít listing things online.

I looked at Caseking too but the pricing was making me a little sick

Re: Computer builders -- whats the norm these days

Good PSUs, CPUs & GPUs are impossible to get to hold off right now! MOBOs that I am interested in are available once again, so that is one positive. Even older GPUs than I need to drive 4k monitors are sold out! My patience has run out! Time to go postal!

Ryzen 5950x (MRSP $800, from Digitec CHF899 ), Pre-order without confirmed delivery date, More than 10 pieces ordered from the supplier.

Would you order or wait?
