    Recently started playing this and it's amazing. Still don't understand how some mechanics work but playing with a friend is pretty fun. The only problem so far is the AI difficulty which seems pretty high so playing in small groups isn't as enjoyable as it could be. Wish there was a difficulty setting but other than that, super job so far.
  2. OK thank you, I will go with the Elite then if I choose the 9700K. My PC freezes at least once a day. I kind of accepted it as I knew the timing wasn't ideal for upgrade but recently it has started not booting up. Completely unacceptable as I use this PC for work also. Stability is more important than performance on this machine which is why I'm leaning towards Intel. Does that hold any water in reality I'm not sure but it sort of gives me a peace of mind.
  3. I usually never consider low end boards but the Z390 UD supposedly has good VRMs. What would the reason to go with the Elite model? The UD has worse audio but I'm not going to use it nor do I need any of the additional features. Purely from the performance POV, in what way is the Elite better? For reference, it costs $90 more over here.
  4. @Groove_C Thank you. I know the GPU could be better for this resolution but I don't mind lowering details a bit, I just don't play enough games or game enough to warrant a more expensive GPU as well. I took a look at the prices over here and I'm surprised the 3800x would actually cost me more. To sum everything up, the 3800x would be a better buy because it is more "future proof" (more threads, PCI-E 4.0) while Intel would be a bit faster for games right now? One disadvantage with Intel is that it is harder to upgrade down the road as the platform constantly changes but I'm not sure how much this bothers me considering by the time the 9700K would be too slow for me I would very likely be changing the mobo and memory as well. I already own a Thermalright HR-02 Macho so I guess I wouldn't have to buy a new cooler for now if I was to go the Intel route. @oldbear Do you think spending 50% more on a Gigabyte Aorus Elite is worth it over just buying the Z390 UD version and not do any overclocking?
  5. Sorry for not mentioning. GPU is GTX 1070. Monitor is 1440p 60Hz and that won't be changing any time soon. Is the 3800X really on par with 9700K in ARMA? I'll be honest, although I know it's only anecdotal experience but I would prefer Intel. I had nothing but problems with my other Ryzen 1600 build. It probably doesn't mean much but I don't mind paying a bit more for Intel. If it's really the better option I will consider AMD. I think either one would be good enough as far as performance goes. It's just that if I'm upgrading I want something that is noticeably better than 2500K. But it seems you have to pay a huge premium for small increases in performance. For instance, 3600 MHz CL16 costs almost twice as much as 3200 Mhz CL16 RAM does over here which is think is pretty crazy. For the same reason I'm wondering if going with a more expensive mobo and overclocking is even worth it. To be honest I would prefer something I could set once and forget rather than tinker with it.
  6. The issue is that my chip or my mobo seem to be dying. Probably not a surprise considering it's been running overclocked for all these years but I'm getting too many freezes and blue screens lately, it has become unacceptable. I've changed everything aside from these two components. The timing does look unfortunate but sadly waiting for another 6 months or so is not an option 😐
  7. Time to upgrade from my i5 2500K and from everything I've read I think an i7 9700K would suit me the best but I'm not sure what to do with motherboard and RAM. I was thinking about Corsair LPX 3200MHz CL16 but is it enough? Faster RAM looks to be significantly more expensive over here, I'm not sure if it's worth it. Same with MOBO. It looks like the Gigabyte Z390 UD has decent VRMs and could run the 9700K without problems if I'm not overclocking but if I do want to overclock I have to spend 50% more for the Aorus Elite and probably need a better cooler too to take advantage of it. 9700K Gigabyte Z390 UD Corsair LPX 3200 C16 vs 9700K Gigabtyte Z390 Auros Elite Corsair LPX 3600 C18 Is the latter worth $115 more? That's even without considering the cooling. I'm not really interested in extreme overclocks. Is it even worth to OC the 9700K at all in this scenario? Any opinions are welcome.
  8. Hey guys. My current system is i5 2500K + GTX 1060 6GB. I've had it overclocked to 4.4Ghz for like 6 years. I think the CPU is slowly dying as the PC has started freezing twice a day and I've tried changing every component aside from MOBO and CPU. Memtest always comes out fine. So, seeing as I need an upgrade I did some reading and I'm thinking of buying the following: i5 9600K Decent Z390 board 16 GB 3200Mhz DDR4 Does this seem like a good choice? As far as ARMA goes, I actually play multiplayer but mostly just hosting smaller games in LAN. My 2500K is already pretty good for this but the 9600K should be even better. As much as AMD is better for multicore stuff it just doesn't cut it in ARMA from what I've seen. The 9700K is way too expensive around here and I think an i7 8700 non K would also be worse in my case considering I don't stream etc. The 9600K has really good results in ARMA in pclab reviews, is there a reason I shouldn't get it? I will be using my 1060 6GB to play at 1440p but high-ish details are fine, it doesn't have to be ultra. Thanks.

    Has the amount of civilian vehicles been increased in 1.9? We've just switched to this version and there are tons of civilian vehicles driving everywhere and getting stuck. It's especially bad on smaller islands like Stratis. Pretty much makes a mockery of the mission.
