I won £2500

Want to thank everyone who supported me, I really appreciate your words of wisdom. Without your support I definitely wouldn't be where I am now. These were very tough three days of intense betting, but I managed to overcome all odds and win in the end. Will pay off £540 in debt and college fees. And the rest is mine! I never won so much before, I was always betting until I lose everything... Thank you for supporting me and believing in me, and don't try betting I just got really lucky. To all the haters - be nicer ;) imgur.com/a/rysbQaR

Need some recommendations for a PC worth £1000-£1500 please!
2020-01-26 18:50
Wait and see what intel comes out with in 1-2 weeks
2020-01-26 18:55
most likely nothing
2020-01-26 19:05
BoBRoss coming out was more intense than Intel in 1-2 weeks tho

I would advise against liquid cooling if youre new into case modding. It requires alot of maintenance and you could ruin your entire pc if you make a mistake. Other than that the processor is pretty shit compared to 3rd gen Ryzen ones. And of course its too expensive.

Inferior Graphics card, if you have that many royal bucks you should aim for a 2070 super, the investment will make your pc way more future-proof. And also it comes with the standard intel cpu cooler which is complete and utter trash. your pc is gonna overheat unless you buy a proper cpu cooling tower which you can get for like 40 pounds.
2020-01-26 23:38
RYZEN 7 3700/3800X + 2070 and you will be rolling for a long time
2020-01-26 23:40
Maybe try to get onto the Ryzen arch. Intel seems to be shitting the bed lately so sticking with AMD should give you the chance to upgrade later if needed
2020-01-26 23:31
its not 2k15 anymore. most pcs are alright

Then pay someone else to build it for you, if you know a personal computer guy or something. Will still be better prices than a prebuilt system
2020-01-27 00:27
once i order my PC I get in 2 days, building takes way longer
2020-01-27 00:29
Listen it is never good to get a prebuilt, complete scam, a few days or even weeks is not worth a worse pc for your money in the long run
2020-01-27 00:30
not a scam at all, i get it much quicker, its all built and ready, everything works, windows installed, i can start grinding faceit right away
2020-01-27 00:38
You can wait a few weeks to grind faceit once you get a pc that is actually worth your money.

I don't have much time exams soon
2020-01-27 00:39

in May/June, I have like 6 weeks to grind faceit before starting to study. Need to get to lvl 10 in that time and then FPL in the summer, and I can take a gap year and join Faze nshit like that

I doubt you will get to fpl, sorry bud. You said exams are soon. Get a PC after exams.

Dogshit, absolutely no one should buy Intel in 2020 Go to a brick-and-mortar computer store, and buy the parts there + pay them to build it
2020-01-27 00:32
pros play on intel and they're fine
2020-01-27 00:39
That's because they're sponsored, they also don't give a shit You, a paying consumer should think more about what to buy
2020-01-27 00:40
they don't give a shit? so its not worse. by the way intel makes AMD chips, just so you know.
2020-01-27 00:41
Intel does not make AMD chips, I don't know where you got that. Just because the pro's don't know/care doesn't mean it's better. AMD currently has the better price/perf
2020-01-27 00:43
if pros don't care why should I, they know better
2020-01-27 00:50
That's some really low IQ thinking, they care about the game, the PCs provided are good enough for them

Its good but they cheap out on shit like ram, ssd's and hdd's. Hence why they don't put specifics. Its liquid cooling and u don't know anything about pc so u probably won't even overclock anything so u don't need that and also they charge like 200 for building the whole thing
2020-01-26 21:12
I will have to pay 200 extra to build it?

PC builder shops are fuckin scam dude, I was working in one - we were taking about 30% of cost for 45 minutes of easy job and 2$ thermal paste. Buy all parts and go to someone who knows his shit, pay him 20 bucks and you are good.

Although I left said job, I still have some knowledge about market - at this very moment AMD is dominating intel both by price and performance, exceptionally when we talk about CSGO performance. Would rather go for Ryzen 5 3600 like someone higher sugested or Ryzen 7 3700X - should run everything in future 10 years unless we, as humanity, will find a way to push miniaturization. RTX 2070 should be optimal. Unless you are youtuber - I would suggest to invest more in ~500GB SSD and less into HDD (1TB is more than enough). 650W is optimal as well. Also - one thing I learned from experience - fancy cases are often loud as fuck and their fans are shit, you may want to reconsider this. Last thing - you have to know that warrant is universal for PC building shops and separate parts - there is really no difference if you build it itself or pay big money for someone else.
2020-01-26 21:15
what's CPU and GPu, and which one is more important for csgo?
2020-01-26 21:51
#119

Poland Hanse 
CPU is most important for CSGO, RAM is 2nd and GPU is not that important. Simulatenously answering to comment below - Ryzen have proven better performance in CSGO due to more threads and cores, whatsoever - it have superior price to its Intel countrparts - therefore I would go for Ryzen + B450 motherboard for example. 16GB is jsut fine, doubling it won't help much unless you want to stream for example. Better GPU is unnecessary at this very moment, you may consider 2070/2080 if you want to play in VR in the future.

One more thing - you may save about 15% of the price if you buy from the other side of the EU - we were often selling PCs to GB and Ireland cause we have better deals for new parts from distributors, therefore our price is significantly lower than yours. For example - Ryzen 7 2700X / 16GB 3000 RAM / RTX 2070 / 256 SSD+1TB HDD costs 850GBP in my ex-work, same rig is probably even cheaper in Lithuania for example.

I have no knowledge about monitors, however if you only can - try to search by these criteria: - higher refresh rate - better - higher resolution - usually better - VA > TN/IPS, IPS have better colors but often way worse reaction time - if you find IPS with 1 ms reaction time under 300$ - it may be the one - reaction time - less = better (1-3ms is comfortable, 8+ is no-go zone, at least in CS) - resolution - more = better (under 40)

Hey man, I hope you read this. Betting can become a serious problem if you don't know when to stop. One day you might win a lot, like it happened to you, and in some other day you might lose everything. Congrats on the winnings, I've lost like 18 euro in csgo betting and I've decided that I have to stop. Manage those winnings well and I advise you don't bet that much money again. have fun :)

What did you bet on?

well done for getting out of the situation. look at what got you there (it wasn't poor bet choices) and make sure you don't come anywhere close to repeating it. you have a chance now.
2020-01-26 21:57
I know I will get a new PC and will have no reason to bet
2020-01-26 23:29
gz now quit while youre ahead, don't lose it all!
2020-01-26 22:02
Already quit ;)

Nice, now stop betting and use money to make life better and learn something. Seem like you want to build PC too. Not bad idea. But you should save some.
2020-01-27 01:04
nothing to save for. Living with parents, uni next year, why would I need saved money. I will try to increase it with betting, after buying PC
