    PS5/XBOX X vs 3080Ti/Big Navi

    Got the LG C9 and won’t look back. It is soooo nice especially compared to the circa 2009 Visio 550vx it replaced. 4K 60hz doesn’t get much use however as I much prefer 2560x1440 @120hz getting good use out of the g-sync although just to check it out I did run destiny 2 @4k 60hz HDR looked...

    6Mhz Overclock Makes System Unresponsive

    Just consider the new RAM is adding a new variable to the equation that may add to the instability troubleshooting

    GTX 770 weird issue

    If you aren’t running from the GPU output you aren’t using it while playing games. It seems you may have a dead card on your hands but you need to put the rest of your system up in your post. This could be as simple as you don’t have enough power for the card from the PSU.

    Change Gpu

    Holy smokes I missed the single stick ram. It’s halfway to being a figit spinner like that. OP needs another stick of RAM. I had a A10-5750m that was hot garbage in single channel. Get that chip a sandwich. Or I honestly can say getting an new GPU would be a waste

    Which video card would you purchase?

    Yeah woah I didn’t know the 1080ti was already washed up

    Change Gpu

    Good improvement but not best. Maybe even comparable to a lower end card is what Razor is getting at I think. Depending on upgrade roadmap it can be better to avoid certain upgrade routes. For instance no one here would recommend a 2080ti because it would be incredibly underutilized. I do second...

    Nvidia drivers

    It's all anecdotal and emotional to a degree. 3 out of 4 AMD gpus I've run have left me pissing away time waiting on drivers where as on just over a dozen NVIDIA cards I had no notable problems with drivers. That being said I blame my self for jumping on a vega 64 mid driver issues I didnt even...

    Founder Edition vs the Rest...

    I'd say this an open and shut case. I second everyone else's posts throughout. Personally I cant speak for all cards but the strix 2080ti 11gb took a decent OC +220 core and +1140Mem in Afterburner. In general I've heard of less on FE cards but they start off higher anyway. I went strix for the...

    Rare GeForce GTX 480 With 512 CUDA Cores Emerges 10 Years Later

    That's what I'm saying. I thought that the 480 was lauded for being a power hungry beast at 450W+(system) and my vega 64, 2080 ti are straight up there with it as top end(not sure vega counts as top end quite but it was close when it was released?) cards. Seems like we are pushing the power...

    Strange black screen system lockup. PSU problems?

    Will do. Sadly the PSU wont be in until the end of the month and COVID problems might keep me from going over to install it anyway. Social distancing and all. Plus I am at risk in general because I am still having to report to work. I'll report back my results as soon as I have them

    Motherboard for Ryzen 5 3400g? B450 or X370?

    This might not be a problem since the 3400g is the Zen+ architecture. But it is something to keep in mind. As far as boards go the b450 motherboards do have a lot of bugs worked out compared to the x370s.

    Rare GeForce GTX 480 With 512 CUDA Cores Emerges 10 Years Later

    Cool... well I guess not. Neat piece of hardware and history. Can’t believe we are back up to 480 levels of wattage though

    Sub $200 advice please.

    1070 is probably the best but yeah it’s getting to be an old card. I picked up a Vega 64 here for 200 That could be an alternative but it hasn’t been completely problem free with drivers and I’m still dealing with potential power problems

    Looking for best small form factor graphics card

    Overclock it. I have a Zotac mini 1050 2gb I was getting like +150 core and like +450 on the Memory. And from what I have read I got a pretty bad overclocker. Even though you are limited for upgrades it might be worth it to wait for more variety or just pick up another PSU. A decent 500w bronze...

    Strange black screen system lockup. PSU problems?

    I have a different PSU on order (Silverstone 850w Titanium) and I am going to check the wiring or have the wiring checked when I get the chance.
