    Premiere Pro user went from 4790K to 3800X

    A couple of days ago I upgraded my main rig from an Intel i7-4790K that I had been using for more than five years to a new AMD Ryzen 7 3800X because Adobe (for its Premiere Pro software) is now requiring a newer-generation CPU (no more than three years old) just to run properly. Old rig: Intel...

    Which CPU do you want me to part with?

    Now that I now have an i7-3770K CPU in addition to an i7-2600K CPU and an i5-2400 CPU, I am thinking of selling either the i7-2600K or the i5-2400. However, I do a lot of video editing on one machine, and some lighter-duty video editing on the other machine (both systems with Nvidia GeForce 500...

    My auxiliary system freezes during POST!

    The problem started this evening when I reset the CMOS to defaults. Afterwards, the computer fails to get past the BIOS splash screen, and none of the keys on the keyboard would even work except for the Caps Lock. I heard the POST beep, but the screen remained frozen at the BIOS splash screen. I...

    Final update on the business build

    I decided to start a new thread on this update rather than adding on to a dormant thread. Remember the business build that I worked on over the past three months or so? Need further input on a business system I decided to make a few final tweaks before I hand it over to the people who...

    I've got the Sandy Bridge itch...

    Now it's time to re-think my main rig. Since my current i7-950 rig is having some thermal issues at even moderate overclocks. I've decided to sell the core components of that system (details will be posted in a separate thread in the FS forum), and (out of impulse) picked up an Asus P8P67 PRO...

    Need further input on a business system

    I am building a fourth system - this time for a business that I'm renting to someone else. That person will be operating a pizza delivery/carry-out place. I am all set with most of the parts. It's just a few that I have trouble deciding between. 1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming...

    Updating a friend's build

    My friend is in need of a new PC. Her current PC - a 3.0GHz Pentium 4 with AGP graphics and 3GB of DDR400 RAM - is starting to feel sluggish. And I tried to install Windows 7 on that PC, only to lock up or crash every time (this means that the system does not support Windows 7 at all - likely...

    Confusion over WD HDD internal designs :>(

    I decided to start a new thread about the different WD HDDs rather than add to a thread that has been dormant for two weeks: Actually, with WD you'll never know which design you're going to get (for the most part). This is because I have read reports that some people who very recently bought...

    Tertiary system build advice

    I am planning to rebuild my tertiary system. I am typing this from my secondary system which still has a Socket 478 Pentium 4 2.80C processor with an AGP GeForce 6800GT card and 2GB of DDR400 (DDR1-400) memory. But those parts will be replaced with a Core 2 Quad Q9450 with 4GB of DDR2-800 memory...

    Trying to get back into the graphics performance/quality race...

    I am tempted to get myself an 8800GT for my current main rig (which for now still has a 7800GT). I will be planning to play a few of the newer games, such as Crysis, in the near future. I have been falling off the gaming bandwagon, using my main rig almost exclusively for web surfing and video...

    Q: Which rig to put inside which case?

    Right now, my current rig is in the sig. I went out and got myself an Antec Super Lanboy case today. I will also get myself a TruePower 2.0 430 PSU. The question is, I am considering building another rig - most likely to replace my very noisy "guest" rig. So, I will ask two questions...

    Errrrgghh! Memory in my "Main Rig" is failing!

    Since I got my Intel setup for my current main rig (in the sig below), it never ran 100 percent stable. It would sometimes lock up or crash on programs. But I never bothered running Memtest-86 until today. Several tests using Memtest-86 v3.2 indicated well over 100 errors - specifically...

    I will be building a secondary computer system pretty soon...

    Remember the paragraph that I made as part of my post in the "Your Favorite Motherboard?" thread in the Motherboards forum? That's right. I will build that rig in a couple of months. It will be in a new, smaller case such as an Antec Sonata. As soon as I get some more cashflow, it will...

    Audigy2 series owners: Read this.

    I've read an e-mail from Creative Labs technical support that the Audigy2 (plain) and the Audigy2 Platinum both resample audio to 32-bit quantization rate and 48kHz sampling rate (read: 32/48). The Audigy2 Platinum eX and the Audigy2 ZS series don't resample audio (as long as no effects...

    Abit NF7-S question

    I have an Abit NF7-S V2.0 motherboard. But I don't have any Serial ATA devices at all - at least not yet. So, if I have only Parallel ATA (IDE) devices, should I disable the Serial ATA controller and connect all of my devices to the regular IDE ports? Or should I use the Serillel2 adapter on my...
