re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
So, I've been toying around with the idea of getting a gaming PC to put in my living room for couch gaming. I was excited about the Steam Deck, but I want to game in 4k 30-60fps on a large tv.

Assuming (i) I'm not ready to undertake building my own, and (ii) price isn't really a concern, what do you guys think about the CORSAIR ONE a200 Compact Gaming PC?

I'd mainly be using it to played modded Soulsborne games and other modded RPGs. Do you think it'd be easy enough to just plug this thing into my TV with an HDMI cable, and then (presumably) use a wireless K/B to navigate when not using a controller?

Do you already have a main gaming PC?

Nope! Just consoles (PS5, PS4 Pro, PS4, One X, Series X, and Switch).

Ah I don't know why I thought you did.

I plan on using my Steam deck to stream games from my gaming PC to my 4k TV

Looks like AMD is starting to discount Zen 3 more, clearly getting ready for the refresh announcement next month.

$389 Newegg 5800X. Damn good deal.

One day processor upgrades will be worth something again. There would have to be a steep technology improvement for me to upgrade

This graph is quite telling

Link?

A 2080ti at 4k is already going to be dying in all but the best of cases, so depending on the game, yeah, I could see it being gpu bound through the last decade of processors

Now, gpu upgrades are still way more important than cpu upgrades, but you do see improvements running a 3080 between, say, a 3600 and and a 5900x. The gains don't scale well with the money, but they do exist. And from a 2200G? Stop it

What I'm most interested in is seeing if AMD can deliver on their 3d cache tease.

Ok, that chart has a 3600 running slightly better than a 5900x. Now I'm just calling bull shite on their entire testing methodology

It's techpowerup, so it's not like they have some bull shite agenda to push.

But it still goes to show that at 4k res the processor doesn't matter at all (to an extent obviously)

To an extent, absolutely. Though as someone running (for now) a 3600 with a 3070fe at 3440x1440, I actually do find points where I stutter because I hit a spot that just so happens to be cpu heavy. The most recent jarring one is a spot with falling cherry blossoms in CP2077 right at the beginning of act 2.

But anyway, at its core, I agree. People should never, ever, sacrifice gpu power to get a better cpu, at least just for gaming. Dropping from a 3080 to a 3070 so that you can bump from a 5600x to a 5800x is insanity. But at which point you're already comfortably at a 3080, spending a little more on your cpu will improve performance. Now, your average frame times won't see much of a bump, but your 0.1% and 1% lows will markedly improve.

I may grab the refresh, 8700K getting a bit long in the tooth these days. Double digit FPS.

Ya.

I really just don't want to finally upgrade case/mobo/cpu and in literally 8 months Zen 4 will be here with DDR5.

Just seems smarter to wait I'm just impatient and have the itch to tinker.

I have a 1 TB S31 SATA drive from them for my game storage. They are legit.

Their drives compare very well against Samsung and Western Digital in both performance and price.
