    Yeh, we talked about this in another thread. Here are 2 PCs at MicroCenter i am considering buying: https://www.microcenter.com/product...ll-quot;-gt;-amd-ryzen-7-2700-processor-32ghz and https://www.microcenter.com/product...ll-quot;-gt;-amd-ryzen-7-2700-processor-32ghz The seem similar. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Buddy,

    this is off-topic. However, I would suggest the 2nd one. The 2060 is based on a Turing chip hat does allow CBD to encode HEVC with B-frames. The 10xx does I-Frames only. So the coding effeciency is better, meaning smaller files with same qualtiy or same file size with better quality when you shrink BluRays.

    Posts split and moved, that said I wouldn't go for any prebuilt system, they're a pain to maintain and even more to upgrade. I'd save up some more and build a system from individual components, and not an AMD system personally (at the very least not the gfx card, currently hw enc is broken in clbd)

    Personally I also had historic issues with AMD systems and would be hesitent to buy one. Building your own system is the way to go if you feel confident to do so. I also always want a very quiet system and that is my highest priority.

    Ch3vr0n - I think only AMD GPU encoding is broken. The PCs have AMD CPUs but both have NVIDIA GPUs.

    It is, which is why is said "at the very least not the gfx card" ;). I've only ever owned 1 AMD product and it was a radeon 9800 i think a long time ago. Nothin but problems

    I had a system with AMD Athlon CPU and had a lot of compatibilty issues. Another system had an AMD (back then ATI) TV Wonder graphics card with analog TV recording. The graphics drivers and software drove me nuts.

    Issues might be resolved now but for me personally there is a lot of scorched earth. My next sytem will still be INTEL CPU, NVIDIA card and everything assembled by myself and main focus to be ultra-silent. I have hope that the competition from AMD will bring the INTEL prices down.

    [Thx the for the split]
    Intel vs. AMD, Pre-built vs Build Your Own PC, are issues that going to be debated forever. Could you guys "dumb" down the language a bit for me? It seems like the G704 is the pick of the two [for example]? Also, it usually costs more for a BYOPC? Yes?
