Title: Mein new computer
Post by: gameblabla on August 08, 2017, 07:25:02 pm
Hey guys ~~ !
Unfortunately, my graphic card (and i thought my motherboard too but turns out no) broke down.
RIP my Geforce 730

So i bought a new configuration :
Ryzen 5 1500X (199€)
ASUS A320M-K (70€)
4GB of DDR4 RAM 2400Mhz (40€, ram is expensive yo)
A used Geforce 780 (130€, not too bad)

What do you think of it ? Can i play PS3 and Xbox 360 games with RPSC3 and Xenia ?
Should i have picked a RX 460 rather than the 780 ?
I plan to use this with Void Linux/Devuan with Nouveau + reclocking + Nvstate=2. (Just like i did with my previous one)
What's the first thing i should do with it ? Play Minecraft ?

yeah thx for killing my SSD x_x

I'm thinking i should try my older PC games like Sonic Riders, Sonic Heroes and Billy Hatcher.
I also think i should try the latest version of Yandere Simulator and go around naked with Ultra settings.
However, i have already done those things to some extent so now i want to do something neuwer. D:

Pls gimme ideas

I can do that but still, it is not very demanding cpu or gpu-wise.
Here are a few pointless ideas to bring mah new PC to its knees :
- Run PPSSPP with an internal resolution of 10x.
- Use Android-x86, run Antutu Benchmark and pass it off as a new, better phone to benchmark apps.
- Watch 8k videos on my 720p display.
- Play Gaycube & We games at 2K with dolphin-sexmaniac emulator.
- Play controversial games in 4k.

i need moar ideas, hope i can get my Geforce 780 realz soon.

At one point i hesitated between the Geforce 780 and the RX460. The RX460 comes with 12 firmware blob images
so i thought about modyfing them to enable 3D graphecs with free softwarez.
But now i will use ma geforce 780 with nouveau so modifying bits & d***s is pointless now.

Holocaust Technology deniers do not deserve to be on codewalrus !!!!
But more seriously though, my seller agreed to send me to mah country so yus !!!

Here's what i will do when i get mah Geforce 780 for my Ryzen build (recap) :
- Play the latest version of Yandere Simulator at Ultra Settings and go around naked.
- Play PPSSPP at 10x internal resolution with 16x anti-aliasing. Boring, pretty sure it can do that.
- Run Antutu Benchmark, run it, beat the iPhone 8, and submit it as a new upcoming phone.
- Play Gaycube games in 4K and downscale it to my crappy 766p screen.
- Play Kotu tribute game and hopefully my better proc & GPU will fix his crappy code.
- Brag to the open-source communitez that my PC works without any blobs. (shame for AMD PSP tho...)
- Run Glxgears to see how many hundreds of fps i can get

Well it's kind of my fault for bringing this up for no reasons whatsoever.
However, kotu needs to be punished anyway, because he was a very bad boy ! :D
To atone his sins, he must suck on an Israeli man.

Btw, i also realized that i could run Gal Gun VR with this pc on minimal settings.
It requires a Geforce 970 as a minimum. However, the Geforce 780 is roughly the same in power. (only -8% less powerful)
However, i am more interested in boys plus i have no monez.

@gameblabla where do I get an AM4 cooler? I can only find coolers where the AM4 bracket is sold separately. D:

Yeah, that's what i noticed too. You either have to spend a ton of $$$ on a Noctua AM4 cooler or buy the bracket.
I just use the cooler that comes with the CPU.
Thankfully, the Wraith Spire seems much better than the AMD FX default cooler.

Well, i finally got my Gigabyte Geforce GTX 780 Windstorm 3X and i'm pretty happy with how it performs with Nouveau.
(Of course Nvidia proprietary drivers will perform better...)
Unigine Valley with Ultra settings at 1366x768 gave me a score of 2718.
Yandere Simulator with Max settings runs at 25 FPS average at max settings instead of the 1 FPS i get with my GM45 graphics chipset lol.
Even with low settings though, it only averages at 30 FPS. I noticed that the game becomes slower despite having little to no graphical changes.
Dust : An Elusian Tale runs at 60 FPS (not a big surprise).

Kotu's tribute game still stutters, i guess he doesn't know how to use timers !
But anyway, i'll give Sonic Heroes, Sonic Riders, Billy Hatcher... a try later.

Your computer isn't powerful enough  8)

More of a driver issue here, Nouveau struggles with Shaders and high polygons count.
But it's possible the proprietary driver does not fare much better yeah...
Seriously devs, tweak your damn shaders so they don't eat all of my memor(ies).

I tried Unigine Valley and here are the results :
Code: [Select]
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Gigabyte Geforce 780 Windstorm 3X

Min FPS : 14.8 (was a stutter)
Max FPS : 116.6
Average FPS : 65.0
Points : 2718

Will try crysis when i can.

It may be good at  that but my game displays at most 8 polygons per frame

Actually Gigabyte Geforce 780 Windstorm 3X is not even the product's codename.
It's GV-N780OC-3GD 2.0 in this case :DDD

The processor performs very well in Linux (i'm using a custom Devuan distribution with JWM+lxpanel) and the GPU is also surpringly
silent despite the fact it can quickly become hot at high frequencies.
Yes, even the CPU is quite silent.

Apparently prices of DDR ram are going up. What brand ram did you buy? There's this one brand named 'crucial' that's kinda cheap. They have a 8gb stick for 65$, but it also looks like something from the 2000s xD

I wanted to get the "HyperX Savage Noir 4 Go DDR4 2400 MHz CL12", which was priced at 34€.
In comparison, all the other RAMs were worse in speed & latency and more costly. (at 40€)
Sadly, it was out of stock so i settled with a "G.Skill RipJaws 4 Series 4 Go DDR4 2400 MHz CL15" for 40,5€.

I only took one stick of RAM. (more RAM would be nice... but they are expensive so i'll wait)
