Whats your setup like?


Recommended Posts

Same. I never remember to do that thing that "I'll just do that later" so place is a tip. It's a pain in the arse, if I get distracted from doing something it's not getting done.


Rig (prebuilt, as it was the same price as components... black friday! Oh and 0% finance because low pay!)

Ryzen 3800X

Asus B450-F (would have preferred X570)

16 GB Corsair Vengreance 3200Mhz RAM... RGB of course

1TB Corsair nVME SSD

1TB Corsair MX500 SSD from previous PC

2TB Seagate HDD (for videos and "storing crap from old PC" until I tidy it, which I will never do tbh)

Corsair iCue 220T Black case, with the air front not the glass front

Asus RTX2070 Super Dual Evo

B450 is perfectly fine for most things, only time I ever recommend 570 is either for the pci gen 4 support when pairing with a gpu or SSD that is capable of it or  for higher memory capacity/speed uses. Otherwise there is little to gain from having the x570 boards

I would have liked an upgrade path that didn't involve a new motherboard - between gen4 PCIe and the VRM quality of this board, vs. some of the X570 options... (B550 of course wasn't available then)

The next gen chips will support b450 with a bios update :D

VRMS are usually better on the x570 series boards but the board you have (same as the board in my server) Is pretty good on that front too, I have enjoyed using it and it will cope with the entire stack perfectly well.

Let's go Ahoyworld !



Nutek, you have experience with those extra wide monitors - do they visibly increase Arma FOV in terms of horizontal vision ?


Arma first-person FOV on classic monitors is 70° which is fail compared to human vision - quoting wiki - human eyes combined (binocular) visual field is 200° horizontal.

I have a ultrawide monitor and yes the horizontal fov is a lot wider, If you look at some of the youtube streams on the ahoyworld channel from me they are all ultra-wide content and should provide a idea of the differences between 21:9 and 16:9
