He does not keep cars for more than 4 years, so unlikely to be a problem anyway.

I have no overall say anyway, it's his money, his car.

He bought it before I put up the initial post, so I guess we will see how it goes. So far very well

Serious

It doesn’t mean all parts will be interchangeable, both companies will have different part numbers for the same parts.

To me a niche car is one that is not popular enough for Chinese pattern part companies to make parts for.

I don’t know anything I just worked in scrappy for nearly 10 years.

I did a Ryzen 3200G build for my arcade cab, it's used for emulators at 640x480 so pretty much breezes anything I chuck at it  :lol:

lol, just marginal overkill when a raspberry PI would have done it  ;D

Huge fan of the PI and I have plenty of them inc the new 4, but when it comes to emulation IMO they're good, but not great.

edit- oops and crucially I forgot to point out it's used as a server also  :lol:

Here's my RetroPie setup:

I'm using a GTX 970 to push 4K graphics in Guild Wars 2, when I feel well enough to play, not that often now.

Does over 30FPS until I run into a massive open world battle or zerg in World vs World play, then it tries to fry itself.

Still playable, just but nowhere near ideal.

Depends entirely on the resolution you intend to use, there isn't much out there that will not put out 1080p at a good refresh rate. On the other hand there isn't much that will put out 4K at a consistent good refresh without cutting back on options.

Native is 1920 x 1200 on my monitors, but TBH even 1080 will be good enough for me, will do a bit more research on the new AMD stuff, I've spend most of my time reading about the new Ryzens and boards at the moment, GPU is next on my list..

Edit: The 5700 does look tasty.. will wait a bit for a non blower I think..

AMD have just brought out a couple of new GPU chips, but they are still being sold on reference boards with dodgy single fan.

Might be a couple of moths before they get drivers sorted out properly as well.

Sorry not been on in a while and just seen your comments, LMAO!  :rofl:

So I'm likely going to be going for a Ryzen 3700X paired with an MSI B450 or X470 board (possibly a max version if they are coming out any time soon, which can properly handle the new BIOS)

Graphics I'm still undecided, maybe a vega 56.. maybe something else around £250-300.. the thing is in the old days I knew my graphics cards.. now I have no idea and just reliant on peoples opinions.. feel free to throw some ideas :)

Bacon, I think you missed something.

The Infiniti brand might not be known much in Britain but it is in the USA and EU.

"the Q30/QX30 duo that ride on the third generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class platform."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infiniti

So if you want to call the Mercedes-Benz A-Class niche I'm fine with that.
